Eh, can’t say I care too much what two consenting adults do. There’s a lot that people do that I don’t get, but I don’t need to get it to accept it.

Admittedly, when I see an attractive young thing with a rugged, older person, I can’t help but wonder if the older person is being used for resources, but that’s just me being jaded. Sometimes there is people who fail in love despite a big age difference. Or sometimes the older person realizes it but doesn’t care. Who knows?

Personally though, I wouldn’t want to date someone that doesn’t have a few years out of college at least. I did it before and her lack of life experience made it really hard to connect, even though we shared similar interests.

Well, I got a handful of reasons. The tl;dr of it though is that I'm lazy. I have a longer version though. Can't really give you a reason on why it's worth reading, I mean it's probably interesting, but also very long. I tried to keep it a reasonable size at first, but partway through came to realize I was just writing it for myself to get it off my chest, and then went crazy. So here's that:



But yeah, that's pretty much the gist of why I haven't drawn any comic updates for a while.

Despite taking so long though, I haven't given up on the comic and have all intentions of continuing. I've been doing behind-the-scenes stuff recently, but I hardly count any of that stuff until the timer has been reset and a page is uploaded.

Anyway, I realize I probably made this topic a little heavier than I'm sure the topic creator intended, so to try and counterbalance my post a bit, I'm gonna leave you with one of my favorite videos, courtesy of one of the greatest mathematicians of our time, Scott Steiner:

You guys are really blowing this outta proportion. I mean, I don't agree with most of what's being said here and it's not so much because of this topic in specific, but this topic is a byproduct of it.

I mean, it's like if anyone steps outside the norm of keeping their head down and going from Point-A to Point-B without interacting with anyone, they're treated like a bad guy. Like this topic is literally about someone being friendly and asking a frowning person to smile, and everyone's dogpiling on it like the guy is super Satan. I've been on both sides of the coin myself.

When I went to Comic Con, I had a scowl on because that's just my default expression. Some old security guard lady was like, "Smile honey, you're at Comic Con!" I just gave her a smile and waved, and went on with my business. Soon as I was out of sight, scowl went right back on. I didn't think ill of her, she was just being friendly. Also probably trying to pass the time because standing in one place for a long while is boring. Also at my old job I had my default scowl on and a dude walked up to me and started a convo because he said I look angry all the time. He wasn't a bad dude, he literally came up because he was concerned if everything was good with me. That's the exact opposite of a bad dude.

On the other end of the spectrum, I personally went to a few social activities to meet new people, and most everyone just sticks to who they know already and give 1 to 2 word answers when you try to start a conversation. Or if you're standing on a long line somewhere and something ridiculous happens at the front and you crack a joke to the guy next to you to lighten the mood, and you're just stared at like you're crazy. A good portion of people I've met lately have no social skills, and the worst part is they don't make any kind of attempt to have them.

It's like everyone is so damn timid these days, and being treated like it's the new norm is frustrating.

I got bullied a handful of times, but it never lasted too long though. After about a week it'd eventually lead to a fist fight and that would be the end of that. Almost all those guys were chumps who despite selling so many wolf tickets, had absolutely nothing to back them up. Like for instance, I wasn't the tallest kid in the world, but this one kid that tried to bully me was shorter than me. By like a whole head. Why would he do this? Did the consequences of his actions even cross his mind once? But anyway, my dad had me take martial arts specifically so I'd be no one's punching bag, and since I went to public school my whole life, there was none of this 0 tolerance non-sense if a fight went down. My parents actually encouraged me to fight, all they wanted to know when the teacher sent a note home was, "Did you win?"

It's actually harder as an adult than it was as a kid to deal with bullying. No one tries to give swirlies, wedgies, or anything like that anymore; it's always subtle, passive-aggressive stuff that has enough plausible deniability to where you can't call them out on it immediately. And you can't just punch an adult in the face without consequence usually, either. I haven't had to deal with anything like that long term, but I have dealt with it in small doses. It's really frustrating because you know it's happening, you see it happening, but if you confront them about it, it'll be denied with all the fake smiles in the world.

Bullying never ends.

Lutztoons:I understand that this isn’t just a women’s problem, even though it’s pervasive. My boyfriend has resting angry face too and people tell him to smile constantly, which upsets him. It’s so condescending.

People tell me the same thing, I just laugh it off and humor them or give a lil' phrase back like, "This is me smiling!" It's rarely people being condescending, it's usually just a conversation starter, or a random one-off small talk phrase like complimenting someone's attire. I never found it something to get bent outta shape over, to be honest.

I had a reoccuring dream for the longest time that I forgot to feed my dog, and I'd just drop whatever I was doing in the dream to go and feed him. After some traumatic experience though that was totally unrelated, I had the same dream shortly after except partway through, I realized my dog died years ago, and woke up. And that was the last time I had that dream.

No idea what the symbolism was in that one, but that was a thing that happened. :l

MistakeNPotatoes:Just to emphasize something that Kevin brought up, the term 'opinion' is a little loaded for some people. Something that I and other people in the LGBT community / people of color have been putting up with in the realm of politics for most of our lives is being told not to be angry at people who "don't share your 'opinion,'" when said 'opinion' is that we shouldn't have equal rights, shouldn't exist, or that certain groups of people should be removed from the country or never allowed in to begin with.

That's a little out of the realm of 'opinion.' When someone's 'opinion' is that I shouldn't be able to get married or that I need to have parts of my brain removed or get shocked until I'm 'not gay anymore,' I'm definitely not going to be civil about my response. That makes level-headed debate a little difficult.

Excellent point. And here's the thing--

The problem with these forum arguments is that you're not gonna change the other guy's mind. So you have two fundamentally different ideologies going at each other, and neither side is gonna budge. After a while you gotta ask yourself, "Why am I doing this?" Forum arguments are usually a waste of time and energy, and quite often derails the topic it was made in to begin with. And since neither side is gonna budge and there's no 3rd party to act as judge, there's never gonna be a winner. At best, one of the parties will silently slink out the topic without admitting defeat, that or keep arguing a topic that they know is wrong outta spite. Ask yourself, do you really care about the other person's opinion that much to keep up the debate in a futile attempt to change their mind?

Tenchi.

It became too much of a self insert power fantasy and Tenchi became too much of a Mary Sue. To add insult to injury, the old characters took a backseat to the new, uninteresting ones when it was revived with season 3. Also to top things off, the canon end of the story is Tenchi fucks raw and impregnates EVERYONE, INCLUDING THE CAT.

Was Cyborg in Doom Patrol a thing this show took liberties with? Because I'm not familiar with the Doom Patrol outside of the lil' cameos they used to make in shows that involved Beast Boy, but I never saw or heard anything about them being involved with Cyborg in any way.

TheStrangerous:Like I still remember how I thought the moon was chasing me, [..]

I thought everyone had their own personal moon that followed them, same for the sun. :>

I also thought:

- There was a headquarters for the Game Boy Tetris where people would expertly select which pieces to send to the player. I don't think I actually believed-believed that, but I did entertain it.

- It was possible for bubbles being blown (the toy soap kind) to rise infinitely up to space.

- That if you keep adding water to Kool-Aid before it completely disappears, you can have Kool-Aid forever. The day I found out dilution was a sad day, indeed.

Kev:Your new avatar’s hawt

Hahaha, thanks. :>

It's based off my new haircut. I went for the generic-black-guy-in-anime/Young Mike Tyson/Blade cut. It's pretty cool, but kinda unrealistic for a 24/7 cut because my hair grows back super quick and the bald parts start to get filled in in like 3 days. Still, it's fun while it lasts.


Shekets:It's the Christian guy, actually.

He could also just be especially nice to me because he might have the impression I'm a witch, considering most of the packages I receive are black boxes/bags have images of the Devil and Grim Reaper on them and vague return address names.

I only can imagine the wild conclusions he's jumping to off of those packages.

Shekets:My usual mailman on my route is a god-fearing Christian who likes lizards. The other mailman is an overworked pot head. One of them does the route much better than the other.

Is it the pothead? In my experience, those dudes usually do some good work. <:)


Shekets:Really though, if it bothers you that much, just call your postal service and (politely!) voice your complaints and reschedule a delivery and explicitly instruct them to just leave it at your door next time you're there.

That's the thing, I get these things delivered on specific days because I know I won't be home other days. If I get screwed over and the stuff doesn't show up, I have no way of getting it outside of picking it up from the Post Office or waiting a whole week (which defeats the point of Amazon Prime's fast shipping). And without a car, carrying heavy shit like a desk for a mile is a real burden.


[EDIT]: Yooo, right as I posted this, I got a ring on my door. Opened it, and mailman dropped off my package in front of the door and left it. In an apartment complex with no cameras, in the Bronx, he just left a package in front of the door. If I wasn't home, this would've been 100% stolen within 20m, easy. Damn man, these people are the worst.

Letters and everything for the most part as delivered no problem (with the exception of that kid that had to be the worst mailman in the world), bigger packages that can't fit in the mailbox though is where they begin to shit the bed.

You could be sitting at home in broad daylight, door open, neon sign with arrows pointing to your house that say, "I'M HOME".

Still get that email saying, "Delivery Attempted" though.

That's barely an exaggeration too, this has happened multiple times with the door wide open.

I'm in a different part of New York now and it still happens more often than I'd like. At least at my old place the lazy fucks could just drop it on the steps and leave. They used to do that all the time, they didn't even ring the doorbell sometimes, just put it down and walk off. Now that I'm in an apartment complex, if they don't feel like coming upstairs, they can just lie and say they tried and face no type of repercussions for it.

This furniture spot brought me a couch today. FedEx also dropped off something, as well as UPS (I set this day aside to get a bunch of packages). USPS though? Nah, I'm just gonna lie and be a douchecopter because I don't wanna do my job.

.. Godfuckingdammit, man.

I literally forgot it was even a thing. I didn't even run into any advertisements for it or anything. I mean, I was briefly reminded by some lady selling flowers by the subway, but that was it.

.. Damn, I missed out on all that cheap chocolate at Family Dollar. ;-;
