  1. Are there certain preferences that people have been known to have that you just simply cannot fathom?

    Like people who like their tea/coffee/whatever hot. Not warm, HOT.

      Why are pickles a default ingredient on so many burgers? It seems like a lot of people ask for them off anyways. Put them on there by request, or put a separate pickle burger option on the menu or something. What I'm trying to say here is: fuck pickles.

      Also (and this is the one that will likely start an actual world war someday), not a huge fan of thin crust pizza; although some are definitely better than others. I like my pizzas thick and bready, and the one we have at work is essentially a saltine cracker.

      Milk going first in the bowl. Just...no

    4. NegaMetallix


      People who enjoy eating cold pizza, especially those who prefer it. I just... how?! How the heck can anyone look at a fresh hot pizza and immediately think "...Eh, I'll have it later" and just let it go cold?

      @Speederino Man, I almost wanna give you a thumbs-up for the pickle thing. But then you mention the pizza thing and now I'm just conflicted...

  2. In Archie Sonic #180, the way the first story ends (Enerjak Reborn prelude) and the second (Rush Adventure adaptation) begins kind of makes it look as if Sonic and Tails set off in the Tornado to go fight Enerjak only to get caught in that storm and wind up in Blaze’s world on the way.

  3. How does the economy work in the Pokemon world?

      Pokemon Centers don’t charge for healing Pokemon, meaning their funds either come from an NHS-like organization, or the Poke Marts that operate inside the centers from Gen V onward share their profits.

      Pokemon trainers apparently make a living from battling (prize money and all that), meaning you’re shit out of luck if you’re not a good battler.

      Not to mention there’s a Pokemon move that basically creates money out of thin air.

    2. Teoskaven


      It doesn't. They don't even have banks.

      Yes they do. It’s called Mom.

  4. Sonic in Sonic’s Schoolhouse sounds like Sheldon Cooper on helium.

  5. Bart and Lisa are canonically blond according to this Simpsons ep I’m watching. Which doesn’t make sense because neither of their parents are.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Could be blond recessive gene in the parents. 

    2. Speederino


      It can happen. My brother is a little blonde and neither of our parents are. But our grandfather (on mother's side) was.

    3. DanJ86


      When me and my siblings were younger, we had blonde hair, despite both parents being brunette. Our hair darkened eventually.

      Do we actually know Marge's natural hair colour? Flashbacks have always shown it blue but an earlier episode claimed she dyes it that colour.

  6. Keeping track of all of Dragon Ball’s English dubs is harder than keeping track of Kingdom Hearts lore.

  7. It feels like somebody...







    1. Solister


      Nah... This is just the capitalist bourgeoisie controlling your mind. *gets shoot*


      Please, don't take this serious, I'm not defending either capitalism, neither communism whatever your point of view.

  8. The funny thing about Jam and Mega Collection, for me, is that I’ve strongly associated the former with the Japanese branch of the classic Sonic era, and the latter with the American one.

    For Jam, the special features primarily favour the Japanese artwork and style, with the character profiles and Sonic the Screensaver gallery, as well as the entirely Japanese commercials in the movie theatre along with the Sonic CD opening and endings having the Japanese soundtracks (in the PAL version at least), not to mention being able to access the original Japanese digi-manuals.

    With Mega Collection, the Archie Sonic gallery alone makes the American side much more a focal point, with the American CD opening and ending, and the digi-manuals all being the American ones being the final swirl of whipped cream on this American apple pie.

      If I ever ask myself in my head on which Sonic collection is the most American, I immediately turn to this.

  9. Which Sonic game compilation had the best aesthetic (logos, menu design, music, etc.)?

      I prefer original Mega Collection to MCP, personally. Especially the special features menu.

    3. PublicEnemy1


      @Ernest the Panda Yeah, such as looking at the comics and such. I loved the music, too.


    4. PC the Hedgehog

      Gems Collection had the best aesthetic, whereas Mega Collection had the best music. I mean, how often do people get nostalgic for a compilation collection's music?

    5. GentlemanX


      I'd say it's a toss up between Mega Collection and Jam. Mega Collection's got a lot of classic music for it's menu themes and overall has a lot of care put into the presentation of everything it has in it - from manuals to the extras, etc. Gems Collection felt like a solid follow up to this, but felt just a little less unique. Jam on the other hand has Sonic World, which is just such a fun idea that it gets a lot of points. Mega Collection's aesthetic feels cleaner, but Jam is more ambitious.

    6. JosepHenry


      Mega Collection is one of the few compliations that makes me wanna play it for the simple fact of the music and aesthetics, despite having games I can play in my toaster.

    7. PaulyBFromDa303


      I think a lot of people are agreeing with Mega Collection on this one. Who can blame them? Every menu has neat sound effects, neat music, neat designs, I would always just get lost in the turning gears at the same time as looking at a classic comic collection.

      Kinda makes me want to play right now

    8. blueblur98


      jam/mega collection/gems collection are pretty great, and i really like riders' style.

    9. E-122-Psi


      Kinda liked the original Mega Collection presentation, the 3D menus and everything seemed so classy and effortful. Gotta credit Sonic Jam for presenting their gallery in a PLAYABLE HUD WORLD however.

    10. Solister


      Despite not being exactly a Sonic game, neither I believe having a better design than Gems or MCP, I think I should add this to the discussion:

      Couldn't find a better video. One I used to like which had a good quality and showed all in-game features seems to be down (Or can't find it on Google).

      I mean, it doesn't have anything"wow" when compared to Gems or MCP, but this was my first contact with Sonic and where I first got into all the SEGA stuff, in fact, this was likely one of the first video games I ever played. It quite makes me want to get into a time machine and back to nearly 2008/2009 when I was only 5/6 years old and first met Sonic, but at the same time I believe there's a few others periods I would like to relive first.

  10. I’m surprised the J.K. Rowling memes didn’t start way earlier than this.

    Like back when she revealed Dean Thomas was probably a Jedi.

  11. When a silent protagonist with absolutely no hint of personality beyond what the player projects onto them has a love interest


  12. I can’t believe he seriously used the Flynn era “Off-Panel” logo.
  13. https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/the-simpsons-disney-plus-trailer-streaming-service-seaons-marvel-star-wars-a8866641.html Disney+ will be streaming the Simpsons, and that sentence felt really bloody surreal to type (there’s a nice little promo too). https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/the-simpsons-disney-plus-trailer-streaming-service-seaons-marvel-star-wars-a8866641.html Disney+ will be streaming the Simpsons, and that sentence felt really bloody surreal to type (there’s a nice little promo too).
