So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Pretty much. Plus, I was quite ok with the story of the Stork. Not the family guy rendition of it (as hilarious as it was) but the real one... you know, the one they tell kids when they're really young. But let's get back to the point of this thread, shall we?

I was originally assuming that by "TMI," Katie was referring to Tales of Monkey Island. Now I'm wondering if she really did mean "too much information."

LOL, yes, I meant "Too Much Information."

I enjoyed Tales of Monkey Island :)

Not liking Tales of Monkey Island would have been much more of a "don't kill me." ;D

I enjoyed the first five minutes of Tales of Monkey Island... because that's how far I've gotten.

I think that TMI admissions can work for this thread.  Just stay aware that if you go overboard with the TMI, you might get some judgment from others as a knee jerk reaction.

This next one I feel the need to explain fully because I always get weird looks when I say it, and the guy's death was huge.  But here it is: I don't like Michael Jackson.  I didn't like him on any level.  On a professional level, I just plain didn't like his music.  It's not my style and I didn't think there was anything particularly special or good about it.  Some songs were catchy, but that's it.  The King of Pop?  I just don't see it.  On an entertainment level, I also just didn't like him.  Yeah, he could dance, but if I want to see someone dancing, I'll go to the ballet.  And if I want to see a music video dwarfed by a fifteen to thirty minute prologue and epilogue filled with bad dialogue, bad acting, and an idiotic plot, the I'll...ok, this one doesn't work.  Under no circumstances would I ever want to see that.  And on a personal level, Jackson bothered me.  First off, he was severely mentally ill (the obvious body dysmorphic disorder and a probable personality disorder.  Most likely schizotypal personality disorder).  Now I don't have a problem with him being mentally ill (1 out of 4 are to some level) but the problem was that he showed no insight, even when his behaviors and actions were repeatedly getting him into trouble.  He just surrounded himself with yes men and doctors who would give him anything.  And it killed him.  His complete lack of insight directly led to him surrounding himself with a world of incompetence, which resulted in his own death.  And he spent a fortune on pointless things and nothing pisses me off more than that.

So yeah, literally on every single level, I didn't like Michael Jackson.

And now for another revelation that's technically a "Please don't kill me" among those who also don't like MJ: For all his issues, I honestly don't believe he was a pedophile.  Completely inappropriate around children?  Definitely.  But I honestly don't think it was meant to be sexual.  The guy idolized childhood and had no insight.  That's going to lead to behaviors that kids do like playing doctor or acting "naughty."  He was wrong but I don't think he ever actually sexually assaulted anyone or was even a pedophile.

And that's my wall of text explaining my view on Michael Jackson.  I feel it was necessary because 1.) I'm overly wordy as a general rule.  And 2.) Because the last thing I need is someone going "OMG!!!112@! HOW CANS YOU SAYY THATS ABOUT Mj?/??  HES THE KiNGs of PoP!!!!221!  YOUR IGNORANT!  THATS IGNORANT AND DEVILISH!"

I didn't care for Michael Jackson's music either. As for the whole pedophile thing, I'm neutral, because I haven't made up my mind, and now that he's dead I don't see any point in dwelling on it.

I didn't like MJ's music either, but then I don't like much music after, say, Stravinsky. As for the pedophile thing... well, I never really knew what he actually did or was supposed to have done around children so I honestly don't know. So... well, I don't really think I need to delve into it and figure it out. After all, why would I? He's just some person I have no interest in and no connection with. There are lots of those - they form the majority of the human race.


Here's my guilty secret: I don't like Catherine Tate or Little Britain. I just don't see why they're funny. They're either crude, rely on swear words or obscenities, rely on predictable punchlines or are just the same joke over and over again. I just don't see why that's funny.

I've never heard of either of those comedians. But I agree; I don't see how excessive cursing and obscenities are funny.

I only know Catherine Tate from her stint on Doctor Who, which I quite enjoyed :) But I usually find it lame when comedians rely on swearing too much as well.

I have to disagree with you by agreeing that after the first season it really started to get extremely repetitive. Heck, I'll come out and admit it: They propably just used the same scripts from the first season and word filtered it to happen in a different location or character.

Speaking of comedians, I never understood why people love Vintiöt. They just came around the same time as Kummeli, so I quess people were really into laughing here after the fall of the CCCP. Luckily we had Studio Julmahuvi to continue the tradition.

I really, really dislike most pre-teen and teenage girls. :P In particular those who think that every problem can be solved and that life is an adventure game just because nothing particularly bad has ever happened to them. Oh, and they think they have problems and have the most ridiculous love lives ever and are almost always shrieking out of happiness or hysterical because their relationship of two whole weeks has ended because he didn't care enough/cheated on her/was putting no effort into the relationship/was too busy. They're about as interesting as a teabag and have little more to say and everything they do say is so filled with interjections that it's occasionally almost impossible to comprehend. And it's usually just wrong and displays their ignorance to the extent that you may want to weep for humanity. Not misogyny; it's just that teenage boys don't shriek and that makes them more tolerable. :P

Teenage boys may not shriek, but they are among the most stupid creatures on the face of the planet. Not all are, mind you. Some actually have some sense in their heads. But many of them make me want to slap them in the face, shake them and say "Grow up!" Ugh.

I think we can boil all this down to, "Teenagers! Ugh!"

You know, being a geek/nerd in high school, I realized something: I was more mature as a freshman than the senior jocks were. All they really cared about, and still do I reckon, is sex. I just find that incredibly sad and shallow. I had more sense back then than most freshman did, honestly. I wish that wasn't true, but it seems to be the case.

Also, I never liked MJ either. That whole scandal kind of made me think worse of him anyway; I was fairly young when that came to light, so it kind of formed some negative connotations in my head.

Aww, I was a social outcast too. :P I used to bring political novels or history textbooks and sometimes PSD's to school and read/analyse/reflect upon them extensively in huge notebooks, rather than put up with their nonsense. :P The good thing about that is, because you have no social group, you can't be collectively pressured into doing anything mindbogglingly stupid. :P

The reason I've been able to resist drugs, drinking and smoking is probably because I was a social outcast. I hung out with others like me (almost all girls, too...). We watched from the sidelines as the jocks did all sorts of stupid things. We were determined to never follow in their footsteps. Some of us succeeded, while others didn't, sadly.

Anything's fine in moderation. :) I'm not speaking out against drinking or trying new, possibly forbidden things (I think experimentation to a certain degree is important), but most teenagers simply don't know when to stop. I know people who consider an evening to be wasted if they don't have a one-night stand or get drunk enough to stay up all night, covered in their own vomit.  That attitude completely sickens me.
