    Yes people have quit
    Yes it is stupid to smoke when you're broke
    But no need to get on a high horse when a dude is trying to make amends for his Own Reasons

    Trying to quit?
    Good on you
    Just don't bitch about being broke in the same sentence as talking about your expensive addiction

    So, broke people should save that $50 a month and enrich their lives correctly by .

    My thing with MLP is how crazy into it people are. Like I love Star Trek and regularly post in a star trek online community and most of those people are extremely well adjusted compared to a huge majority of the "brony" types who i've only come across in passing. For whatever reason it become a life-defining thing for MLP fans.

    No one here has ever set off that warning in my head, but it seems way more common in that community than other fandoms.

    Wait you've never heard of overly-dedicated star trek fans?

    ...seriously?

    No? I didn't say this at all.

    Your issue with MLP is how crazy into it people get. You then use Star Trek as a comparison, implying that Star Trek does not have as high a percentage of its fans who are as into it as MLP fans.

    Which Star Trek series was it that incited fan outrage by scaling back a character entirely comprised of disability stereotypes?

    Voyager?

    I don't even remember a disabled character in Voyager

    I'm trying to remember disabled Trek characters, and the only one that really comes to mind is Geordi

    Don't you

    forget about me!

    he seemed to say

    oh dang how did I forget Pike!!

    that dude got a raw deal

    When a fandom starts making masturbatory aids for their fucking television show love interests it's a problem

    God I wish I could post some of the shit I've stumbled on to


    pony fuckers. pony. fuckers. MLP's fandom is shit if you remove any sort of parent-child viewing. eat it, nerds

    None of this has anything to do with the show though

    this is the fucking internet

    there isn't a single subject you can't find some group of people jerking off to in it

    why do people give any extra shits about one of these fanbases over others

    they're all functionally the same

    I largely agree, but the people taking it too far in Star Trek were jerking it to Troi and Crusher, not...uhm...whatever kids were on the show.

    That's the thing, the characters in MLP are considered children, and so it sort of takes on an extra layer of pedo when you start talking about the crazy over sexualizing fans.

    But that has more to do with the premise of the series than with the crazy contingent, not that said contingent is excused from their depravity, just that it is unfair to use that as an excuse to rage against anybody who enjoys the show for non-depraved reasons.

    But then in my own experience i have come across some nationalist MLP communities, free-market libertarian communities, and also extremely disturbing pornography so maybe it's a case of the internet highlighting the worst of the worst.

    how about

    people who like my little pony admit it's weird they're watching a children's show and then say 'fuck the haters' and just do it anyway because by all accounts it's a pretty good show

    people who don't like my little pony feel free to give shit to the people who do but don't actually hold it against them because who the fuck needs to act superior to other people based on their choice of cartoons

    and we never have this argument ever again

    LCD Yahtzee:

    I remember this basically having the intrinsic value of gold. My grandma told me if I was ever bored to go ahead and play that or the little LCD Poker game. The following Christmas I recieved LCD Yahtzee and LCD Battleship. They basically helped me through two of my last jobs and every fishing trip because I hate fishing.

    Now, I only play real physical Yahtzee or real physical Scrabble, and really want to be at a place in my life where I can play real physical Battleship.

    i guess "my little pony sucks" as a broad stroke is a little unfair to the people who put the effort into it but the toy line cartoons never sat right with me (g.i. joe, transformers, care bears) and the way the grown adult fans subverted it seems like a portent of uglier times, uglier souls
    I think there are things far worse than grown men getting far too into a kids cartoon show, in fact, I would say that the reason a lot of these men are into said kid's show is that they can't deal with the very real and very scary things in the world.

    Folks can talk about what wearies them without any expectation of sympathy. It's not necessary to the conversation. And I really doubt most people that smoke are spending the difference between broke and not-broke on their habit. Nor is their habit otherwise restricting their productivity or success in a meaningful way.

    I've really wanted to start smoking lately, but I never really want anything to fuck with my lungs.

    was thinking of trying cigars as my first thing due to no inhaling when my friend was visiting a week ago. got her a cigar a little while back because i thought it'd be sexy
