Yeah, and Alola Form Sith are fire-type.

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 August 2016 - 05:37 AM)

Some regional variations actually have some cool headdress-type things instead of the black hood.

@  Rycochet : (29 August 2016 - 05:20 AM)

Sith Robes? Really?

@  Kalidor : (28 August 2016 - 09:48 PM)

Most google ads base their content on sites you've visited - so you're probably visiting a lot of news sites.

@  unluckiness : (28 August 2016 - 09:33 AM)

What, you don't find Sith robes attractive?

@  Pennpenn : (28 August 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Anyone else getting Muslim dating sites turning up in the ads? I mean, talk about mistargetted adverising...

@  Telly : (27 August 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 August 2016 - 09:26 PM)

Seriously, Shout Factory's Beast Wars Season 2 and 3 4 DVD set was at Dollar General for 2.95

@  Robowang : (27 August 2016 - 09:15 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 August 2016 - 08:29 PM)

Why no, I'm not adversed to getting Beast Wars Seasons 2 and 3 DVD set for 2.95 (At Dollar General)

I can't believe I forgot one of the core rules of video games. When the question is "They can't be that stupid, can they?" the answer is almost always "Yes they can".

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 August 2016 - 04:43 PM)

I'd say "Goodnight, everybody!" but no one's made an innuendo yet.

@  Pennpenn : (26 August 2016 - 10:10 AM)

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 09:09 AM)

That guy had a perfectly nice home, he just didn't want the neighbors to see you with him.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 August 2016 - 11:52 AM)

Did you at least buy him dinner?

@  Robowang : (25 August 2016 - 11:14 AM)

So I was making out with this random old homeless guy, and he stops and is all like "Why are you making out with me?" and I'm just like "Shut up, Homeless Guy."

Not Walky, specifically, but Shortpacked does have it's own page along with the Walkyverse.

Maybe it's my March tradition to revive this.

I've been bored somewhat lately and have been reading the 'Dethroning Moment of Suck' pages. Lord knows I love a good moan so surely I'd be in good company, right?

Reading the entries though, people seem to rage about the most pointless things. One that keeps cropping up is 'I HATE THIS EPISODE BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY'RE TEACHING CHILDREN!'.....What? When did TV shows have to educate children? I watched plenty of shows as a kid where characters did questionable things in a given episode and knew this was being presented by some adults as comedy, not education. Are you really expecting kids should get their moral values from the likes of Mr Krabs?

This is still the argument anyone adding to this page generally seems to run with. That apparently every work of fiction must have a moral and that when a story takes a non-politically correct tone it's trying to teach children this is the response they should take in life.

 

Are people really this dumb? Not every story has to have a moral, quite a few are just exploring something that would be impossible in reality for the sake of entertainment. In fact it's usually done to be cathartic; "You couldn't get away with this in real life, but wouldn't it be funny to do this?"

The worst part about TVTropes is really just the userbase, which is apparently the Planet of Easily Frightened People from Earthworm Jim.  I swear, ANYTHING that isn't a fluffy bunny is considered "nightmare fuel" to them. 

 

 

Ah well, at least they shunted "Fetish Fuel" and its Attendant away because of Google Ads.  That was a constant sine wave of terrible to even worse.

The worst part about TVTropes is the cargo culting of fiction. You have "writers" attempting to build a work out of TVtropes tropes as if they were Lego. That's not how you write! Not even close!
