Oh man, social awkwardness... Yeah, that's a tough one to overcome since you constantly have to go outside your comfort zone and be able to put it behind you if you do accidentally say something silly. 


I was forced to get through it for my job. There's a lot of talking on the phone and I'll admit I inwardly panicked every time that damn thing rang and I had to answer it. Then again, not being able to see the person really helped and I've noticed that little practice I get at work has helped me when I'm face to face with someone. 

#84376 "Let's Play"s that DON'T suck

Grah! I still can't get the Game Grumps names down. I think it was Ross and one of the main guys that played the first Leisure Suit Larry. I absolutely lost it when they called the sex line and gave all the funny Batman answers only to have someone call back and use all that info in a "sexy" call.

There's even a petition going to have the name "Leelah" on the tombstone since most people realize the name she wanted to be called that aligned with the gender the identified as is different than some weeaboo teen wanting to be called Shiro. 


That's all the more I'm going to say. A shame this thread got so derailed.

That is unfortunate, and entirely depressing, but I can't help but be a bit annoyed.

I always get a little hot spot in the back of my head when someone ends their life and honestly thinks it is the only option they have.

There is always, always some semblance of control in the hands of the person suffering, no matter how hopeless everything may seem.

Killing yourself because you are treated like a pariah amongst family and friends then leaving a note that ends with "Fix society. Please." is the weakest shit imaginable.

This person was content becoming a number and hoped that that number would shock people in to changing their attitude and revolutionise the world for all sexual identities instead of remaining alive and starting a support group, or a rally, or absolutely anything other than suicide.


I know I probably sound like a prick, but it bothers me so much when people commit suicide for any reason.

I just feel like there is always so much more that a person can accomplish if they just stuck it out and saw what happened.

Pain is temporary, besting your oppressors and ending up on top of the pile is forever.


But that's the problem with depression: It consumes your mind and genuinely makes you think you're stuck and things will only get worse. You get into such a bad place that dropping the pencil you were using on the floor is actually enough to make you burst into tears. 


Leelah needed help badly, no one was there for her, and she heard incorrect information from someone. She thought she was too old to start the gender transitioning process which is false. Especially when you're all alone it's difficult to know what your options are to correct your situation and start to become happy again. 


I understand where you are coming from, though. I always shake my head when I hear about kids bullied at school who end their lives. I know it's hard, but you won't be in school forever. However, we can't know what they're feeling and what's going on inside their heads. The best thing we can do is not judge and keep an eye out for people in our lives who may need a wake up call that suicide isn't the answer. 


...I suck balls at expressing my feelings and making sense. I hope I did OK here ><

This is all over Tumblr right now. Yeah, the mom revealed just what a massive cunt she is by trying to play it off as an accident and referring to Leelah as a boy and calling her "Joshua". Her Facebook seems to have been deleted, but not before people got as much information off it as they could. 


Her parents were those over-the-top Christians that sent her to "therapy" where she was told "God doesn't make mistakes" and that she was in the wrong. 


People like this shouldn't have kids. Instead of threatening her with Hell, Leelah needed to know she wasn't alone, been directed towards a support group for teens like her, and allowed to transition. 


I'm scared to death that her mother will make sure she's dressed as a boy for burial and put "Joshua" on the tombstone.

All Dogs go to Heaven was forced to endure censorship for a G rating. There were two scenes where the majority of this was done: The first is when Charlie was killed. The original cut actually showed the car hit him and Charlie’s body sailing through the air and into the water.


The second is from Charlie’s still rather unsettling nightmare sequence, the only missing bits I’ve been able to find being this cel:


Originally Charlie was chased around by the demon.


Another minor edit came to the gun that Killer has. I forget exactly what it was changed to, but originally it was just a plain old Tommy Gun. This alteration was due to a school shooting that occurred where many children lost their lives. Having the gun be something more phantasy like avoided any controversy.


I’ve heard rumors about the lost footage. Some say Don Bluth still has an uncut copy himself while other claim it was stolen, although it seems highly unlikely there would only be one copy.


The Land Before Time was hacked and slashed so bad about ten minutes of fully animated scenes were removed. The Sharp Tooth was deemed much too scary for kids, so most of his screen time was cut. When he killed Little Foot's mother it was a lot more brutal; she was bit on camera and, if you pause at the right moments, you can see some blood and puncture wounds that they tried to cut out.


For some reason a watering hole scene was entirely taken out as well as a part of when they meet Spike.


These are the only glimpses of the deleted footage that I've found:

Remember the show Road Rovers? After the first time it aired, a segment called The Russian Names Song was removed from an episode.

I guess I'm more mad about it than depressed, but I thought sharing might help a bit so I can calm down and go to sleep.


It was surprisingly warm out today so I wore lighter clothing and a spring jacket when I went outside. The heat is usually pretty cranked up at the Super Walmart, so I left the jacket in my car when I reached that store. All I needed from there was some guinea pig food, so I thought I could just grab that and be in and out fast. Nope, someone decided to make a comment on how petite I am, which is nobody's fucking business. 


I just said "Yup, that's what happens when you have an un-treatable illness" and walked away. 


I'm seriously sick of how ever once and while that will happen. YOU DO NOT MAKE COMMENTS ON SOMEONE'S WEIGHT. You never know why a person might be skinny or heavyset. My mom's weight ballooned after she had cancer. She does the best she can, but is still a bit on the chunky side. People are just so freaking rude.

#83561 Fun, lighthearted shows

Posted by Launch on 23 December 2014 - 04:40 PM

This is months old, but can I add some suggestions?


Azumanga Daioh is the cutest show ever, but for some reason with a pedophile teacher thrown in there is well. It's a very lighthearted slice of life anime that follows the lives of some high school girls. 


Hare+Guu is about a boy named Hare who lives in the jungle. Despite the fact his mom is a floozy, life is pretty good until she brings home a girl named Guu who she found in the woods. Crazy shit starts happening.


Nyan Koi centers around a boy who is allergic to cats. He accidentally breaks a cat statue, which pisses off the cat god, so he's cursed to turn into a cat unless he can do 100 good deeds for them in a timely manner. You can see why this would be difficult. Oh, it's also a harem anime.

Realest possible talk:


I'm glad you're here, Launch.


Awww! Thank you so much! That makes me really happy!

#83401 Upping the Image and Video Limits?

Posted by Launch on 21 December 2014 - 11:31 AM

So before in the Collections topic I made I tried to put some images on, but ended up just linking to an Imgur album instead since I got a message about too many images. It seems like the amount you're allowed to put in is really small, which I assume helps out in keeping spammers from going too nuts if they try to add pictures. 


Would ten be too much? I can't speak for anyone else, but If I'm looking at a topic where someone's trying to show off how cool something is with images and pictures, I'd rather they just be right in front of me instead of need to click a link to elsewhere.
