This would be wmmlt but this is probs where it should go.

That whole "Birdo is a guy" thing came up today for some reason, and led to me finding this on the Mario wiki:

On the official Japanese site for Mario Kart: Double Dash!! the description for Catherine states "Catherine appears to be Yoshi's girlfriend... or does that mean boyfriend!?"


I don't even know what the fuck this transgender/dinosaur relationship is or how it found its way into the Mario universe.

Really enjoying going around, kicking zombies to the ground and stomping on their head. Beautiful.

It's so satisfying. As is exploding their heads with some form of blunt device.

Eh, I didn't actually mind it. Also, there is a difference between not liking something and it being bad. For example, I dislike the COD series, but does that mean they're all bad games?!...

(yes)

The dialouge in Max Payne 1 alone is amazing along with Vinnie Gognitti "SHOOT THE BASTARD".

It all went down hill after COD 2 imo, but MW 1 has been the most popular fps on pc since it came out which clearly means it isnt bad I just dont like it

Don't courts accept that no one reads ToCs anyway and so even if you've waved your human rights you just go 'Ah, well I didn't read it' and they throw it out.

If not, meh, I'm not going to sue anyway. Stiff upper lip and all that.

anyone who agrees to that is a fucking idiot :lol: no two ways about it, its just plain stupid. they should be guaranteeing no ones information gets stolen, not making sure no one can sue them when it does. and it will happen again.
