I hope everyone who reads her Post realizes they can just click on Quote and read what she wrote.


All you really have to do is click on the text. I go to another board that uses that trick for spoilers. So I am very use to doing it already.

Oh... right, right grin
hold left button down and slide over the word

Just highlight it with your cursor, and you'll see the white text. Using the spoiler tag creates a whole separate paragraph, which wasn't necessary for so few words.

As quoted from Gevin:

"Sh*t & Tit distraction" def.: The use of fanservice, such as scantily clad characters; to obfuscate the lack of well developed storyline, pacing, characters, etc...

def.: Ahoge (as taken from the Urban Dictionary )

Literally, “stupid hair” in japanese. A single (usually short and fat) lock of hair that sticks out of an anime character’s head. The character is usually stupid in some way, but there are enough exceptions that this isn’t a rule. Example characters include Himeko and Me-tan. To be differentiated from antenna hair, which is two or more thin locks of hair as opposed to only one.

Rebecca grabs a hold of Himeko's ahoge and pulls it out.

I HATE the term "otaku"-a literal translation is a fanatical fan-a stalker in some cases. To me it's just plain creepy-I much prefer the term "anime aficionado".

How about "Animaniacs" laugh

Wouldn't that just lead to bad AA meeting jokes though? whistle

Who cares? I'd rather be addicted to anime than other harmful things.

I was joking with ya, zrdb. I'm sure you feel about the same about the term "otaku" as I do "fujoshi". Although at one point I did almost get a wristband that said "Anime: Crack is Cheaper". Didn't wanna sound like I was promoting drugs though.
