Columbine kids weren't bullied, that's a myth that was created to make sense of the events and resulted in an increased mistrust of outcasts in american high schools.

I'm sorry about this too :( I've since removed all claimed avatars from my prior posts. If anybody notices their avatar still listed, just mention it in a post.

I've made one more, but I also have a bit of a request to go along with this.



This is something I made after a failed experiment. I wanted to make this an animated gif with a simple "shudder" effect like the one seen in avatars like this and this. I know next to nothing about making an animated gif, so I'm leaving it to whoever wants to volunteer to do it :)

e: It's from this page http://i.imgur.com/DYUzM.jpg

Is this good? It keeps moving slower than I tell it from my POV but that might be my browser.

E: God drat it it's not just me, what the heck is going on?

Also, he's not crazy, he's making it bad on purpose. There are too many hints of self awareness like the "not looking gay to the viewers" comment, and the spelling and grammar errors are too numerous and too consistent to be real, no matter how old he really is.

I don't think he's crazy, but I do think he's probably autistic and definitely sincere. Sometimes it does give the idea that it's being self-aware, but just because he makes intentional jokes doesn't mean the rest of it isn't sincere. People's minds aren't either totally disconnected or 100% self-aware and in control, there's a lot of subtlety to how they work. I mean it's possible that this is all an elaborate act, lord knows TobleroneTriangular fooled the hell out of me back in the day, but he does seem to be the real deal. I consider myself pretty good at detecting fake gimmicks, and if I thought this was fake I'd definitely point it out, but I'm a believer.

I also don't get why you're taking a dump on this thread. Not all the fanart is equally hilarious, but it's all just a sincere celebration of how entertaining and ridiculous this guy's stuff is. The only thing I wouldn't want is for people to start harassing the guy in real life and trying to humiliate him and creepily document every second of his life like with Chris-chan.

I also like the irony of Shadow saying that Sonic should kill Eggman and be more like him, but in doing just that, Sonic has unintentionally strengthened the trolls. DEEP.......

Sonic taking Shadow's advice loving killed him, and took out a potential troll opponent. Shadow's escalation of violence against the trolls also hosed up the plans of the secret anti troll alliance. And Shadow's now faced with someone who's taken his philosophy to the extreme in Mario, who's become more or less a monster. This is like a complete dissection of Shadow's philosophy. It's like a modern Greek tragedy where all the seemingly admirable traits of the protagonist lead him and everyone in his life to ruin.

I think the argument is that since Bugs and Daffy were clearly conscious beings capable of abstract thought, communication, and love, that another similar being eating them would be like cannibalism even though they may not be the exact same species. I'm not sure if it holds up, but I'm pretty sure that's the rationale behind it.

That really doesn't hold up because animals eat other animals that are just as smart as them all the time and it's not defined as cannibalism.

Man, I dunno why but I appreciate comedic 'They Might Be Giants' and parody style songs way more than 'actual' songs. Thing is, I enjoy them as if they were in fact traditional songs, I even find myself memorizing the nonsense lyrics and singing them back to myself.

I noticed this trait in myself as soon as I first discovered the Auto-Tune the News videos. Then again when I came across the brilliant stuff Bad Lip Reading has been making. And I just have to say your songs have been right up on par with them for me.

That's called being a huge nerd, man.

It's terrible, but I hear all of Mario's dialogue as spoken by Lou Albedo, the guy who did the TV show. It adds a level of gritty realness that I'm not sure this webcomic needs.

Lou Albano, and it's not terrible, his portrayal was pretty amazing.

If lazerbot is mimicking comics/manga, the next immediate panel will be a big detailed splash page with Mario getting killed by the fireball.

I wouldn't particularly like that outcome (I think Mario has at least a little bit of story left in him), but it would fit the style of most comic fights.

Edit: of course, the next panel could also be a splash page of someone coming to the rescue and blocking or reflecting the fireball.

Actually it's equally likely to just be a big explosion, then when the smoke clears, Mario's wearing a new suit and is totally unharmed.

Martial arts aren't home defense tools. People generally don't undertake martial arts training because they're constantly under threat of attack. It's about pushing one's limitations to be able to perform in controlled circumstances, or in some cases, during warfare. Mas Oyama trained alone in a mountain shack for years, punching trees and eating high protein diets and living with basically nothing. Why on earth would anyone attack him?

It's like saying Boot Camp is useless because what if someone attacks the rookies while they're disassembling their guns??
