    The best gem is Zircon.

    yes

    I mean, fair enough!

    It certainly explains why we seem to be getting very different things out of the show.

    I love the show very much and watched the whole thing. I'm making jokes. I'm also real tired of SU preciousness meaning we can't talk about or have different thoughts about the show.

    Also, like, Steven’s living situation has way better outcomes than the foster system and waaaaay better funding.

    But yes in an ideal world if your father is a transient who lives in a van and you are being raised by three nonregistered people on a compound after losing your mother then yes you should be in a group home and raised in a stable family

    this is weird

    my tongue hurts, and the soft palate on the bottom of my mouth

    Some days Blue wonders why anyone ever bothered making numbers so small; other days she supposes even infinity needs to start somewhere.

    People really assume the government intervenes more in child care than they actually do with that sort of "if it were realistic" thing.

    I don't believe in the latter thing at all!

    It was very difficult to determine when you shifted from actual criticism of Greg to jokes about him, or if that shift happened at all, and if you interpret the jokes as legitimate criticism they seem strange to me, that's all.

    Criticism of SU shouldn't be precious any more than SU should be precious.

    It isn't transient when he has been there for years.

    It's a good premise with mediocre execution and a ton of horrible stuff like two twelve year olds being sexualized by the camera and hit on by an adult who knows they're children.

    Living in your van is a sensible cost saving measure! We would be a better country if more people were so space conscious regarding their living situation!

    A facebook post about Shia's Hot Ones appearance reminded me of this, which upon rewatching I still think is a magnificent work of art.

    The cinematography and choreography are so good. Legit inspired.

    Hmm, am I recovered enough emotionally from insta-failing the Yiga Clan Hideout section in BotW due to a terrain issue yesterday?

    I think I might be.

    I have all the figurines and I sing the songs! I am able to put away the adult brain and enjoy it but it can be fun to also think about how weird it is.
    I really did think Gregg was a deadbeat absentee father and the show does very little to dissuade you from that position initially.

    It's hard to judge a character by a real world metric when barely anyone in the show acts like a human.

    Agreed, and tbf these are the kinds of jokes the show even makes about itself on occasion

    Really? I mean they soften it a ton but they act a hell of a lot more like actual people than most cartoon shows.

    Fuzzy I must ask that you return those figurines to the (man-)child you stole (wrenched?) them from because the verdict has been reached that you are a player hater
