    I really liked Gentle Criminal and La Brava. That arc was a really nice one.
    They never did anything that bad. They just did vigilante justice and claimed it as villainy! Like, their masterplan was infiltrating a school festival to disrupt it. Not to do a terrorism, not to kill people, just to prove they could.... AND THEY COULD. They totally had a good point.

    Against better judgement I looked up her wiki. She has the superpower of love as indicated by heart decorations on her costume, most notably her crotch.

    Very classy.

    Seems to be a little person and not a child. But drawn like a child.

    Also very classy.

    I guess the female version of cupid?

    I was super bummed about this! Obviously, massively misinterpreted it, but the way she was introduced, I fully assumed her quirk was gonna be about editing reality like a video tape. They like, hype it up that it's a last resort power. There's footage of Gentle doing something to win a fight but the video is edited so you don't see it, and when she first starts talking about using her power against the protagonist kid, a timecode pops up on screen. And then it's... love = strong guy. They just edit the video later because it's uncouth. Whaaaaack.

    Oh brilliant

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Su_Hui's_Star_Gauge
    The Star Gauge (Chinese: 璇玑图; pinyin: xuánjī tú), also known as Xuanji Tu (Picture of the Turning Sphere) is a Chinese poem written in the 4th century A.D. It was written by the poet Su Hui to her husband. It consists of a 29x29 grid of characters, which can be read in different ways to form roughly 3,000 smaller rhyming poems.[1] The outer border forms a single circular poem, thought to be both the first and the longest of its kind.
    By the Tang period, the following story about the poem was current:
    Dou Tao of Qinzhou was exiled to the desert, away from his wife Lady Su. Upon departure from Su, Dou swore that he would not marry another person. However, as soon as he arrived in the desert region, he married someone. Lady Su composed a circular poem, wove it into a piece of brocade, and sent it to him.[5]
    Another source, naming the poem as Xuanji Tu (Picture of the Turning Sphere), claims that the grid as a whole was a palindromic poem comprehensible only to Dou (which would explain why none of the Tang sources reprinted it), and that when he read it, he left his desert wife and returned to Su Hui.[6]
    I would be kind of weirded out by that and kind of just back away slowly

    I don't really think she looks like an 8 year old tbh.

    Like the only thing kid-like about her (based just on that picture, maybe it's different when she's animated) is that she's short.

    That's not a kid's face, and she has boobs!

    Honestly I'd have put her at older than 21.

    I did love the
    bit about Gentle painting his panda eyes to match her's. That was adorable.

    Also, sweet lordy fuck that was a cool fight. The bit with Midorya shooting a ricochet off of Gentle's bubbles was amazing.

    Oh brilliant

    It is "foreign truck drivers using GPS" time, summer edition

    91903616-cefb-49fc-bddb-623a3f8df1ea?fit=crop&h=600&w=800&s=f200bfd5c319a444b3d270edf5bd437ad0d222c1

    One genius followed his GPS, ignoring the signs saying
    Recovery vehicle gets him out, tells him to back up, truck driver doesn't want to pay the bill so he tries legging it.

    ef91e97b-93fd-4fb5-b2a7-2a61c51e593b?fit=crop&h=600&w=800&s=a604ae4b653133afde1f683e68727fbe92bc3d18

    and promply gets stuck again. This time they had to get the recovery vehicle from the other side, which had to go 400 kilometres, so it got even more expensive. Also the police confiscated his drivers license and informed him that no, those signs saying no vehicles longer than 10 metres weren't optional, obviously.

    This angle shows better why it was such a harebrained move to even try to go up that road that it cost him his license as well as the couple tens of thousand to get him out.

    maybe we should put extra signs in english and latvian below the signs that say "no trucks" that say "WE DON'T MEAN "NOT ALLOWED" WE MEAN NOT POSSIBLE"

    hu Netflix cancelled Sabrina yesterday, well at least there is still one more season coming.

    Could Netflix please stop cancelling its shows? It's real hard to get invested in anything they produce when they're so willing to cancel even vaguely successful shows after just a couple of seasons.

    It's actual Netflix policy. They really don't want to pay for more than two seasons.

    By anime shorthand, she is not drawn like an 8 year old.

    Nowi from Fire Emblem is a person drawn as a prepubescent girl:

    MOD EDIT: a NSFW pictorial example was here.

    Over 1000 years old

    Hopefully show runners will come to accept this and we don't get another Santa Clarita Diet situation

    In September 2013, Thompson expressed his hatred of Grand Theft Auto V during a series of e-mails exchange with GameZone writer Lance Liebl during its launch week. The game happened to launch the day after the Washington Navy Yard shooting. Traditional media outlets such as FOX News sought out to find proof that violent video games, such as Grand Theft Auto V, had a role in the brutal killings. GameZone responded by writing an article that disagrees with this. These caught Thompson's attention, who then sent an e-mail to the site. "Look, Lance," he wrote in an email, "The American Psychological Association has established a causal link between these games and increased aggression. The Dept. of Defense uses them for that purpose." Liebl responded by offering Thompson a chance to come on the site and explain his stance, which he refused, describing gamers as "too brain-impaired to get it."

    I had utterly forgotten about ol' Jackie boy.
    Thompson gave Janet Reno a letter at a campaign event requesting that she check a box to indicate whether she was homosexual, bisexual, or heterosexual. Thompson said that Reno then put her hand on his shoulder and responded, "I'm only interested in virile men. That's why I'm not attracted to you." He filed a police report accusing her of battery for touching him.
