pjfry: I was confused by this too. I sincerely hope it was used ironically in the crappy blog post because apparently twee is something that needs to die more than just about anything else on that list.

From: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=twee
"Something that is sweet, almost to the point of being sickeningly so. As a derogatory descriptive, it means something that is affectedly dainty or quaint, or is way too sentimental.
...
It comes from the way the word sweet sounds when said in baby talk."



yup even more retarded then I suspected it was

And now I've learned something. I thought it meant something anachronisticly retro referring to tweed or twill fabrics.

UrCa: I was always led to believe swag was "stuff we all get" in reference to the magnets, buttons, stickers and whatnot you got from the stands. When I went to Comiccon a few years back even the people at the badge station were inviting people over to "come get your swag!"


It'll always be "Scientific Wild Arse Guess" to me, dammit!

#25 "Steampunk" anything

You know what, both of you can go fark yourselves. Name 5 steampunk media released in the last year. I dare you. I DOUBLE farkING DARE you.

Back at you you lazy bastard


heres the deal, anything good can be ruined by over-exposure. Bacon is still good, and "SteamPunk" is still an interesting genre of fiction in its own right...and Zombies...well...Zombies have sucked for like 20 years... but people constantly talking about Bacon, or pretending that ANYTHING and EVERYTHING can be "made better with bacon" (it can't) or slapping bacon logos on everything is just retarded.
Steampunk as a genre can be good.... pretending we need bands that sing about airships and how cool it is to glue watch cogs onto everything for no reason just soRenFaire geeks have an excuse to recycle their rennie "garb" by adding watch cogs and goggles...equally retarded.

Zombies...totally played out...there is nothing left to be added to the genre at all. its all be done. It's been done well a few times...but mostly its just been done poorly to cash in... and all the "Zombie Squad" and "zombie Crawl" people can just get over it.

Thanks for the info, and now I'm am even more regretting the time I took to read that seeing as how the author used something terrible that needs to go away in his/her post.

meat0918: pjfry: roc6783: cgraves67: UrCa: ***snip***

First time I heard it used was in True Blood.


It's not cool to say things like that out loud, FYI.

Der Poopflinger: I hate the term "epic" because most of the time it's being used by some retard in a completely stupid fashion.
I also think the foot shoes are goofy and I suspect anything you're gaining in the running department is all in your head, but that being said if you want to wear the goofy looking shoes go ahead.


Epic needs to be reserved for special, rare moments, like getting an extra McNugget. It loses meaning if you go around using it for normal stuff like getting through an intersection on yellow or the hobo not waking up when you steal his cigarettes.

Goofy shoes are ok if you're running in them, but not just for walking around.

tobcc: Skinny Jeans are fine, on hot women, men should never, ever wear them.


I was in line for Cinnabon at the mall and saw out of the corner of my eye what appeared to be a couple of lesbians necking. Nope, one was a dude with a lesbo haircut and skinny jeans. Disappointing. I just do not understand this generation at all. Is it supposed to be the logical extension of the metrosexual movement where men, instead of dressing girlishly sharp, now dress like frumpy lesbians?

Stig2112: AntonChigger: Stig2112: Not giving up my VFFs no matter what other people think. Best running shoe I've ever had.

\heard them called horrendous
\\as I was passing a slower runner in 'normal' running shoes

So your shoes make you faster?

In my case, yes. I could only run for a couple miles before knee pain made me stop. Now I can maintain a faster pace and run for longer without pain.


It forces you to run on the ball of your foot instead of the heels, correct? I tried this in regular shoes and my speed definitely increased, it was a bit like constantly falling forward. It was probably better for my Achilles too since I have tendonitis in both. My calves were sore as hell the next day, though. I don't think I'll be transitioning from normal shoes anytime soon.

Nah, I'm with them on that. I like bacon as much as anybody else, but the complete obsession with it is a little weird. It's not like bacon is anything new, or significantly different from what it's been the last couple hundred years.

Bacon is the Tebow of breakfast foods. It gets a inordinate amount of attention, but doesn't spend much time on the field. Now, I love me some bacon, but people talk about it like they eat it three meals a day. Let's be honest... we eat it like once a week.


Unless you are in the military and the galley makes it daily.
