    Remember when people used to say that laptops were for only smart people or businessmen? Anime hasn't quite hit the level of acceptance in the US to make the obnoxious people go away.

    I know, but it seems I'm a magnet for the obnoxious anime fans, because this isn't the first time this has happened, and God knows it won't be the last. (On a minor note, you saying the annoying ones watch it primarily just to feel good about themselves, it makes me think they're animation's equivalent of the hipster for some reason. XD)
    Yeah, I think obnoxious self-proclaimed Otaku and hipster are pretty close cousins. Both are doing it mainly for appearances and ego, not because it's something they love.
    Here's the deal, I'm the best there is. I wake up in the morning and I urinate excellence. And nobody can hang with my stuff. I'm just a big hairy American winning machine.

    I'm very humble, too.

    And as much as I'd love to see anime get more respect here, I've accepted the fact it's probably never going to happen.

    Wow, and I was eating Chick Fil-A just as I read this.

    I'm not totally surprised, since I'd heard the rumors before. But I'm surprised they would be so blunt about their dislike of all non-traditional families. Not the best marketing decision, eh?

    Of course, America loves fast food so much that even if people are offended by this they won't stop eating at Chick Fil-A. Chick Fil-A is actually one of the few places I go for fast food, and although I probably won't stop going there completely I will try not to go as often. Homophobic chicken is still a lot tastier than the pink slime at McDonald's. And ooh their fries are so good.

    I've decided to finally get off my duff and complete my Pokemon card collection. To spice it up, though, I'm going by booster packs instead of buying the individual cards I'm missing. Sure I may spend more money this way, but it's more fun.

    That and I still refuse to drop all that money on a Charizard card.

    A new used book store opened up in our mall, and by sheer luck, I found volume 6 of Monster. It's going for over 4 times the prices of the other volumes, so you can imagine how happy I was to snap it up for 4 dollars.

    Geez, you're lucky! There aren't any used bookstores where I live!

    To be honest, we're lucky we have one. The same spot in the mall was at one point Waldenbooks, then Read Green Books before they went belly up. The only other place to get books is overpriced Barnes and Noble.
