  1. Oh, that's neat. I had been loosely following this thread but never imagined that I'd be the guy that would get interviewed. 1. I'd run an experiment based on the amount one could genetically alter a person before they would become infertile to modern humans. For instance, if I add in a bit of bird DNA so that the person would grow some form of wings, would that result in them being unable to reproduce? After finding my results, I'd probably sell my results to the governments for them to make super-soldiers or something to that regard. 2. So one time at Walt Disney World, specifically Epcot, me and my family were riding the "Figment" attraction, or that one ride with the weird purple dragon. During that ride, there's a part where they do some smell based stuff, and the dragon does a skunk. Thing is, it isn't actually a skunk, it's always smelled like stale Triscuts to me. That isn't the weird smell though. On that specific day, we had gotten food before going on the ride. I forget what it exactly was I had eaten, I think it was something Italian. Whatever it was, it left a strong tomato based aftertaste. So we get on the ride, and arrive at that section. Right before the skunk part, I burp. And I mean literal milliseconds before the smell came out. For those unaware, the smell comes out in a large puff of air. So this large puff of air comes out, combines with the tomato burp, and I smell something I don't even know how to describe. Maybe poorly seasoned tomato soup that has goldfish thrown in for good measure. Something odd like that. 3. Oh plenty of times. Indiana Jones 2 (I forget the subtitle) scared the living hell out of me, and I watched that when I was in my later kid years. Certainly scarred some part of me. If that doesn't qualify as a kids movie, then there are others. Another moment that wasn't from a movie was the Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios. That one ride has put me off any kind of horror, even psychological which I often find I actually like, but it's still made me hesitant to try out. That one scene from Nemo where he gets inducted into a cult stands out. On a less severe scale, anything involving Sid in Toy Story 1 was very unnerving. 4. Hmm, this is a tough one. It's hard to nail down a name I would call funny being used in the real world. The oddest name that I can remember is a fellow named Jerik, man plays a sax like no other. I've seen plenty of dumb names online, but not really many in person. But all of that will change when I name my first born son something from either an anime or Kingdom Hearts, assuming that whatever person marries me doesn't laugh me out of the house for suggesting that. 5. Yeah sure, knock yourself out. Answering these is pretty fun, so ask away.
  2. The better question is, "Does Sheldon Cooper is Ike?"
  3. Alright fine. A loser who was ostracized from society, largely by his own doing, complains that people don't like him. It's less what she says, and more how she says it. That Child Anna voice actor shrieking out high notes, bless her heart, sounds terrible. Once she gets older at least that VA can hit the high notes, although keeps the whiny tone of voice. Sure, but again his voice. That grating, nasally voice that is trying way too hard to be cutesy, sings a song.
  4. You're right, I need to remedy that immediately. The songs where a brat whines about her sister being moody and introverted and where a pampered tool sings all about first world problems also suck. I forgot about Kristoff's song. I actually like that one, it gets a pass from me.
  5. Like typing out a post describing the feature. Really a brilliant idea on IS's part and I hope more features that include rapid tapping are included later
  6. You see, I saw that as a part of the whole subverting true love theme that Frozen has going on. While Hans being a villain is a natural extension of that theme, you still have to make the implementation of said natural extension fit into the characters and situations you've designed, which Disney didn't do. They made Hans the perfect prince, and displayed him as nothing but that, and even made him look better in most cases, right up until the twist. As for the brothers, I just thought that was a background detail.
  7. Nah, I just hate Frozen in particular. I love most of Disney, and especially Pixar's stuff. Hell, one of the reasons I got into Kingdom Hearts is because I love Disney so much, and it remains a reason why I like the series. Difference being that they are actually good instead of the grating garbage of Frozen's songs. By all accounts, Let it Go is a good song. And by all accounts, it is overplayed to the point of annoyance and has gotten to the point where it has been utterly ruined by overuse. And all the other songs are trash. Junk about snowmen, stupid rocks rambling about marriage, that annoying cliche love song that is trying to hard to be cliche and as a result is self-defeating. Utterly worthless. Except the issue with him being a villain is that it isn't foreshadowed in the slightest. It's like a switch. One second he's good, perfect, doesn't do a thing wrong, then bam, psychopathic murderer. I can be find with characters making a complete 180 in characterization, if it's foreshadowed properly or has a good payoff. Hans has neither, and him being a villain just feels dumb. I get it Disney, you want to completely subvert the idea of true love, but did you have to do it so poorly? Hans literally stops a dude from murdering Elsa, only to later try to do it himself. It makes no sense for Hans to stop that dude from killing her at that point, if he planned to just do it later. "Yes, it's a brilliant idea to get myself charged with Regicide so then I can't get any of my goals done, instead of this rando trooper who I can easily just throw in a jail to solve all my problems." It's so clumsy that I can't call it clever.
  8. I guess that's neat? I was not a fan of the first movie, in the slightest (and Kingdom Hearts 3 did not help change that opinion), and this 180 shift from a sassy Disney drama into a full on adventure action movie seems odd to me. Animation looks good, I have to give them that. If there are no songs, then I can see myself actually liking this. The redesigns are neat, although then they have me thinking this will just be a weird version of Brave. As for Hans, I hope he returns. He was the one dude I actually liked in the original Frozen, and they better not do him dirty like in Frozen 1, making him a garbage tier twist villain.
  9. Meh, I despise all the characters on display here, but the fact that they aren't all alts is a trend that I like. I'll probably just try for Keaton since Special Spiral fodder is nice, and maybe Selkie for actual use even though I hate her the most. Not spending more than 15 orbs on this, gotta save for the FE6 banner. Although I hate that game, if there's one thing I love about it, it's Dieke, and my gut is telling me he'll be on that banner. Panne is meh, never liked her in Awakening. Guess a free beast unit is nice. Also, screw Yarne. I'm glad he didn't get in. He sucks, so much. I consider him the worst character in all of 3Ds, that's how much I hate him. Yarne hate aside, decent looking units, way too long weapon text, plenty of people seem happy even though I'm pretty indifferent/annoyed at the proceedings. I've been mostly happy for the last couple of banners, so I'm fine with a banner coming out that's not my speed. Also more story, maybe the seventh highest ranked male hero can finally get some character development, or maybe just a character in the first place besides "Hi, I'm Hot Topic".
  10. Yep, just follow the current prompt and write whatever you want (granted that it stays within the pretty lax rules we have)
  11. So far, the designs seem pretty hit or miss. Like that one girl with the Jojo hat? Definitely a hit. That one short orange haired gal? Definitely a miss. I really need to learn character names. I still prefer Hidari's. Kozaki's was also hit or miss, but at this point I think there were more hits with him.
  12. Hey wait a minute, I thought now we wouldn't have an entry in the first few days. Plot twist I suppose.
  13. What obscene gestures can you do with your Index finger? Middle finger, I know, Index, I don't.
  14. If the transcripts were ever read aloud you'd have to remind them over and over that this is still in the court, and not on some fringe podcast.
  15. Yeah man, write the Ike x Soren story we need to save the day. I can think of a few ideas for that prompt. Might finally have the chance to tap into my love for Kingdom Hearts.
  16. Back to a certain story that was told a while ago, by a certain fellow who will remain Anonymous
  17. Nedata is the head of the music department, while Bazba is obviously the PE coach. After all, he is the MIGHTY Bazba.
  18. It's alright, we all make mistakes. Yeah, it's a pretty good showcase. Rinea just feels like an afterthought in my opinion. Like, the writers of the game wanted a foil for Alm, and so they created Berkut. Great, had everything all set, and then someone said "Hey, shouldn't we make him a little more likeable?" So they threw Rinea in there as sort of a patchwork solution, not really caring about her, and more for Berkut. I mean, I get how one could get this message, but to me it feels like a bit of a reach. For one, Berkut at the end is portrayed as comically evil until he is redeemed. While the relationship isn't the healthiest, he at least treats her nice up until about Act 4. Granted, that's when most of their interactions are (if I recall correctly, haven't played Echoes in about a year), but the Prism Shard showed that Berkut went out of his way to be nice to her. If I had to extrapolate a message, it might be that you can make a serious mistake and still be forgiven and loved, but that's really cheesy and definitely not what the game was going for. But I think the intended message was something along the lines of "Hey look at this cool boss fight, and then wow, isn't Rinea so nice for forgiving Berkut". Or something along those lines. I really hope Three Houses has some great female characters. Granted, I like most of the female characters in Fire Emblem, but there aren't many I'd call "great". Me too, it was fairly interesting. I'm not a particular fan of the term myself. It's too much of a blanket term, and sometimes can be used in places where more detail would really add to a discussion. That and whenever I see the word I hear one of those Anti-SJW Youtuber say the word in a sneering voice and it's so annoying.
  19. Oh right, forgot Sigrun exists. I redact that claim, that position is probably indefensible.
  20. I'm not quite sure how Berkut being forgiven is white privilege. He isn't seen as redeemable because he's white, he's seen as redeemable as up until he was corrupted by Duma, he was a somewhat nice dude. A bit of an angsty dweeb, sure, but he was nice to you, as long as you were of the right birth. That's his major flaw, and if you wanted to say it was due to any privilege, it'd be rich privilege, or noble privilege. He was the foil to Alm to show what he would be like if he was raised in Rigel. Berkut's obsession with class and the elites are cast away in his final moments, which is why he's seen as redeemable. That said, some of the reason he was forgiven is the Rinea's character is basically "please Berkut, the character", so of course she's going to forgive her. If anything, this is less about how easily Berkut is forgiven, but more about how easily Rinea forgives. And honestly her character isn't really developed enough to draw any proper conclusions on why she so easily forgives, except, again, that her character is literally "please Berkut, the character". I agree, this is clearly not a healthy relationship. Rinea seems to be constantly fearful of her life. Then again, we do see them at an inopportune time, and Berkut saw her as the most important thing to him (other than his heritage but you can't really sacrifice that at an altar). But it's clear that when put under stress, these two do not mesh that well.
  21. Depends on that fellow's perceptive. To play devil's advocate here, Brom is the worst axe user in the game, Skrimir is a laguz, although one of the better non-royal ones, Sothe falls off hard, and Marcia is the worst Pegasus unit in the game. Now when compare to the other competition, yeah, they aren't as bad, solid middle tier for most of them, but the points aren't indefensible.
  22. An easy way to keep that in check is to have an option for the person who starts the poll to see who voted for what, and if they see someone voted for themselves they either have to fix it or get disqualified.
  23. Pythagoreanism is just some dumb greek nonsense. Next word: Calendar
