    I heard that Windows 10 is added an emoji of a hand flipping the bird. Am I the only (relatively youngish) person who finds this a little on the inappropriate side? There is already enough rudeness and hatred in the world, do we seriously need another way to insult a person?

    Am I the only anime fan who does not think Attack on Titan is a great anime?

    No - I only got through 13 eps. before going back to something like Regular Show and/or Amazing World of Gumball, for example(s). Then again, I don't like most anime to begin with, so there's that, too. I'm more interested in this show called Folktales from Japan, in terms of anime that actually do manage to grab me, TBH.

    Am I the only one who feels America should adopt socialism at some point in the future? I feel it would slowly fix our problems immensely, in terms of healthcare and education, to name examples where America is severely lacking that need fixing badly, IMHO. Too bad that would require people here getting a proper education on what socialism truly is...

    Am I the only one who thinks that 1995 Littlest Pet Shop is an underrated cartoon?

    Nah, there are people out there who proudly consider it better than the 2012 (current) one.

    Am I the only one who doesn't care about having a big video game collection for a particular console?

    One of the reasons why people back in the day thought the PlayStation was better than the N64 was because it had a bigger library of games. That probably also holds true for the systems that came out later compared to those from Nintendo. I ended up with just seven N64 games, and I also have 13 GameCube games, 9 Wii games, and just 3 Wii U games so far. The only non-Nintendo system I own is the PS2, and I only have five games for it. I'm probably not very good at picking out games anyway, and the only games for Nintendo consoles I've truly been interested in as of late are from the Zelda, Metroid, and Star Fox series.

    Am I the only one who thinks...

    Fosters home is McCracken's best show?

    Halo has deteriorated since 343i industries has taken over?

    Steven universe is an overrated show?

    And that's all I've got at the moment.

    Nope. I've seen the whole series and while I can see why it has become so popular, I don't think it was nearly as great as the hype made it out to be. There aren't a lot of interesting characters or characters with solid development. Most of the characters fade into the background and none of the deaths had any emotional weight to them because we knew so little about the characters. It's good, but I wouldn't call it great or anywhere near as good as all of the praise makes it out to be. If it had more memorable characters with more development, it might have lived up to its hype.

    Am I the only one who thinks Klein from Sword Art Online isn't really that special while people think he's great for some reason and make #RespectKlein?

    Everyone keeps saying that he's a great character and while he's definitely not terrible unlike most of the characters in the show, I really don't think he's that special either.

    I can agree with the Attack on Titan statement because while I haven't seen it I'm not entirely interested save for maybe Hanji's character, and the constant fandom worship and claims that it's the best anime ever certainly don't help.

    To add to the thread, am I the only one who thinks it's a sacrilege to swap out a rotary engine for an LS series or other conventional piston engine? There are ways to stop the turbos in the newer RX-7 from being accidents waiting to happen...

    I only partially agree with you, mostly because I don't find that show funny. AT ALL.

    Heartwarming and Emotionally Driven in a REAL and BELIEVABLE way? Yes.

    Action - Packed? Definitely.

    Thought Provoking and example of things that SHOULD be the NORM and NOT the EXCEPTION if Western Animation wants to actually thrive in the near future? Maybe - but that's kinda pushing it...

    Other than that, FUNNY it is so NOT.

    Partial agreement is ok by me, I was just wondering if I was a minority on that opinion. I know how well received SU is among the general population.

    There are some funny moments that get me laughing, but I don't think that Steven Universe tries to make being a comedy one of its prime objectives. Exploring the world and fleshing out the characters are more of a priority than trying to make the audience laugh.

    All for the better. That's what makes it stand out amongst far too much of CN's current lineup.

    I'm kind of with you there. I tried to watch Steven Universe, but couldn't get into it and quit after the first 5 or 6 episodes. I know that a lot of people love the series, but SU's pacing is much too slow moving for my tastes. Plus, I don't care for shows that cause category placement trouble. Steven Universe is not quite a comedy, not quite a drama, not quite an action show. What is it?

    I tried to get into it too, but it's just not for me, it's too fantasy-like at times and I can't get over those lovey-dovey moments. But I understand it has a huge following, and I hope that CN dosn't cancel it for the fans sake.

    Overrated is such a weird word because it's usually used to mean "something liked by many that I don't like". I can understand not liking something because nothing gets 100% approval, but I wouldn't call it overrated simply because it amassed a huge fandom.

    Am I the only one who likes to play sports, but not watch them? Like most of my family, I really enjoy participating in sports, but unlike most of my family, I'm not interested in spectating them. While I can enjoy watching sports, it's not something I would go out of my way to do.
