BattleFrenchie28: Shopped, I can tell because it being real would be kind of cool but since the only truth is despair that has to be fake.


IT'S REAL TO ME, DAMMIT!

Summercat: Also, just got home from FC. I'd say it was an awesome con, but I dind't enjoy it.

Never say that it's a vacation. I was a vender and a staffer. @_@;;


I need to buy cheap flights in advance so I can come play next year, everyone seems to have a blast there.

Paranoid from shrooms? I spent a spring time growing them one year, ate every one of the 24-some-odd cakes worth. I never once got paranoid. I even went to Carowinds and rode every ride -- I'm terrified of roller coasters. I couldn't stop laughing and had the best time of my life -- seriously.

Either they were a crappy strain or she's a liar.

Interesting article.

Furries are pretty cool people, and most of them take the "live and let live" philosophy. Yeah, they're weird as all sh** sometimes, but I'm a Pony fan who likes Star Trek and Legos. I've got no room to stand on the nerd judgement.

The only thing that impacts the furry community disproportionately more than other nerdy subsets is the non-functional members' publicity. Going to a Star Trek con, there isn't a lot of attention paid to the two guys who write Kirk/Picard fanfics vs going to a fur con and seeing the two or three social retards acting like it.

farking in fursuits or jacking off to pictures of girls with tails is far less creepy to me than slicing up your dick and pretending it's a vagina

but whatever, internet. You hate what you hate.

"I'm here for Kotaku, we're a video game site." I explain to the man standing between me and a press badge.

Could have fooled me. I don't know why the nitwit writer kept going on about fursuits, few furries own them.

When asked how important the sex aspect was to their participation or enjoyment of the fandom, most furries said that it wasn't very important.

It's pretty important though, you just need to look on furaffinity.net or e621.net to see loads of fine porn.

If you take WAY to many or you have no idea how to handle a trip it can get pretty weird. Especially if you are taking them solo or you aren't familiar with the specific shrooms you are taking

I have had a few grams that will melt your mind, had the same and was just meh. Once ate a 1/4oz and it was more psychedelic than almost every LSD trip i have ever had.

Always good to have had someone test pilot them before hand who can give you a heads up on the strength.

Hey Kotaku, how is this related to video games?

Whatever gawker is paying you Drew it isn't enough for their shiat to be shoveled onto the various tabs in such abundance.

Agreed, most furries will lie to the media about that aspect. Lets face it, furries get a bad rap already, no need to reinforce the stereotype. Most non-furry people don't seperate the porn aspect and the sex-in-fursuit aspect. The sex-in-fursuit I would say is "not all that important", and infact alot of furries don't really care about doing it. But you can't say that to reporters as they'll just nit-pick and quote mine.

Strangely, I know many "furries" who enjoy recreational firearms usage, which practically precludes residence in California.

I went to high school with a furry kid. He was the weirdest dude ever. He would always wear a wolf tail and a dog collar and dress only in shorts and a t-shirt, even when it was 20 degrees out. I once asked him why he did it and his response was "Like, I totally connect with wolves spiritually and stuff so like, I'm gonna move to like, Alaska so I can live with the wolves because like, they can teach us so much spiritually". Having actually lived in Alaska, my response was along the lines of " Well, I look forward to the news footage of the rescue team airlifting your frost and wolf bitten ass out of a tree because you charged into the woods without proper equipment and tried to pet a wild animal".

Seriously, hallucinogenics can be wonderful things, in the same way that any drug can be a wonderful thing. Or power tools. Or high voltage lines.

Or they can kill you.

I honestly can't fathom how somebody can say, "OK, I'm going to take shrooms, but I have no idea who much, so I'll guess, and then I'm going to a public place."

Except that I can fathom it, because I saw it happen more than once when I was young, and I have a feeling that at least one of those people has carried around psychological baggage ever since. Which isn't funny.

Actually, that article wasn't bad. I still find furry "culture" to be a touch pathological/infantile, but then again what do I care, bi and large, what happens at a California convention centre?

Besides, just prior to discovering sex and booze, I went to a Star Trek convention. Can't explain that.

Jeez, man, I just repeated the same joke as was in the article.

And yes, conventioneers of most types tend to be upholstered fairly heavily, as it goes with the Dr. Pepper and Cheetos/Firefly marathon/crusty couch lifestyle choices.

The "bi" probably arises from an any port in a storm approach to sexuality.

This convention was just last weekend. The reason they saw nobody out at night is because it was farking COLD! Even San Jose gets cold in January. Come back downtown on Memorial Day weekend and you'll see a lot more activity that, by and large, the participants are just as bi but not as large.

/furry clowns coming to get me, furry clowns coming to get me...

Right there with you.  I once saved a furry's life at a Burning Man-style event (he'd wandered past the safety periment of a very large bonifire and was unaware that his polyester fur suit had started smoldering and was about to ignite because it insultated him from the heat somewhat)- sometimes I wonder if I did the right thing

A second hand story about a wild time with drugs that happened years ago, maybe, followed by a shiatty story about a furry convention. Your blog sucks.

Though I'd like clarification on this quote:

He puts his shirt back on, and tells me that the fursuit is an amalgamation of all of his dogs: the nose belongs to one dog, the ears to another, and so on.


Because the way that's written sounds strangely like his fursuit is made from his dogs.

If the author wanted to understand why they're the butt end of jokes, the article really could've ended at the description of a 'fursona'.
