I expect someone from Japan to find the Mexican holiday "day of the dead" to be considered strange, in that while both societies honor the dead, Japan does it with a small personal shrine, not a communal party with many, for a lack of a better word, rather morbid figurines and candies.


Actually I'm fairly certain Japan has no room to be shocked or surprised over such things with the kind of morbid or perverse or just downright strange things they're always bringing off the product line or shoving into their anime and manga. Really they have produced so much worse. Besides they really don't seem to scare easy. I think a Japanese person seeing Dia Del Muerte for the first time would probably think it's great and like it. Rather it would be the more restrained english/american people who don't get the symbolism who would find it creepy and wrong. I've seen frequent times on American websites and forums silly people going on about how Dia Del Muerte is evil devil worshipping festival when actually it's completely the opposite and is as you said Rothide about honouring the dead in a very respectful and religious fashion.

You were drawn by the need to insult me for no apparent reason?

CIS SCUM


Yay I'm also part of the black hole in this thread that is absorbing light and logic!


No one can escape!

LOL I joked we'd hit 40 pages, and lookie here where we are.

But...the turn of how we got here isn't quite how I expected.

Eh, actually I've seen worse. And I'm relatively new compared to others.

Nah, this one's still only in third place. 2012-06-24: Dudebro Factory, with 604 replies, still just edges past Fembot, and, with a massively overwhelming 802 replies, "Churchbot, Transform!" continues to prove that just about nothing can exceed a religious debate on the internet for truly monumental awfulness.

Although, I must admit, with 593 replies ranging from nitpicking metaphors in the comic (meh), to shipping what has to be Sinfest's unlikeliest couple (!), to sentient toasters (!!), to the ethics of consensual bestiality (!!!), this topic is pretty close to the most surreal one I've yet encountered. Think we can convince Mr. Gary to allow one more Sinnie award for this rather exceptional example of a time-sink?

I don't remember the Churchbot thread, but that Dudebro thread was soul-grindingly bad. At least this one was funny. I mean, sentient toasters and centaur fucking in one thread? That's impressive. Dudebro was just two know-it-alls refusing to give up. It's probably the thread with the most cited references, though.

fun fact, I'm pretty sure the Dudebro thread was the first thread I saw when I joined the forums.

That's almost as sad as taking a cruise on the Carnival Triumph.

Where did centaur fucking come from? God I'm glad I decided to abandon thread when I could... and glad I could add to the humor.

Also for the person who says 'that's what everyone was saying' then why were they telling me the two had nothing to do with each other?

I actually thought that came at page 20 in that thread, so around the 20's I did a reference to it...
