@CrabCake: You're forgetting the period after The Jungle Book and before The Little Mermaid, when only The Rescuers didn't suck.

Uh? The Fox and the Hound, The Black Cauldron, and especially The Great Mouse Detective were all great movies.
So were The Aristocats and Robin Hood.

To each his own, but nonetheless, still nowhere near what they became in 1989 with The Little Mermaid

And there's a reason Don Bluth gave up and started his own thing at that point.

The Little Mermaid is pretty overrated though. It's all right, but I've never understood why it's considered such a game changer from Disney.

Speaking of overrated Disney films, am I the only person who doesn't get all of the Frozen hype? I mean, it wasn't a bad film, but I wouldn't consider the greatest Disney film of all time or anything like that, so I have a hard time understanding what made it become so popular...

You mean the oversensitive types of people that want to ban any sort of reference to religion? HP.

Very much HP, though I didn't always feel this way by any means.

They also, despite often coming from upper-class homes and living relatively privileged lives, have a major persecution complex that is very annoying.

This

Many of them also lack of sense of anything beyond them or doing something because it's beyond them and from a higher power.

At least the most insufferable Born Again does things because they believe it as some kind of divine or natural cause to do the deed instead of "because it's logical".


In that case, would you consider me a militant atheist? Because approximately 0% of my decisions are made by divine inspiration, with "because it's logical" being a much more common reason for me to do things. Tongue

I actually think it's perfectly reasonable to expect that a grown man who watches a cartoon for little girls is a deviant and probably should be on some kind of watchlist.

There is perhaps nothing more pathetic than adults watching children's cartoons.

What exactly do you consider a "children's" cartoon? Would you consider it pathetic to watch animated films made by Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, etc.?

You do realize the difference between "watching" and "enjoying" something and "obsessing" over it?

Yes, obviously. But TNF didn't say anything about obsessing, his exact words were "There is perhaps nothing more pathetic than adults watching children's cartoons.".

Jeb Bush should be the first president to have multiple Vice Presidents (knowing the sheer awesomeness of the one and only Jebbers, I bet he could find a loophole somehow) :

-VP 1: Marco Rubio, in order to appeal to Hispanics
-VP 2: Ben Carson, in order to appeal to African-Americans
-VP 3: Carly Fiorina, in order to appeal to women
-VP 4: Barry Goldwater, in order to appeal to Jews who vote for non-Jews with Jewish-sounding names
-VP 5: John Kasich, in order to appeal to Ohio
-VP 6: Jeb Bush, in order to appeal to Florida
-VP 7: Bob McDonnell, in order to appeal to Virginia
-VP 8: Cory Garnder, in order to appeal to Colorado
-VP 9: Joni Ernst, in order to appeal to Iowa
VP 10: Brian Sandoval, in order to appeal to Nevada
-VP 11: Kelly Ayotte, in order to appeal to New Hampshire
-VPs 12 & 13: The Koch Brothers, in order to appeal to the Koch Brothers
-VP 14: Dave Leip, in order to appeal to the peoples of Atlas Forum
-VP 15: Small children, in order to appeal to Dennis Hastert and Catholic priests
-VP 16: Hillary Clinton, because she deserves it

If you remove the screaming, its a great song.

>Likes metal
>Complains about screaming vocals

Meh, for whatever the singing style of Metallica just doesn't annoy me as much as the singing in this song. Not sure why preferences like that have to be defended...

Meh, I don't really care. People obsessing about the show can be annoying, but the people complaining about people watching it are just as annoying.

Won't this negatively affect people who need to drive a lot for their jobs?

People who drive a lot were already paying the gas tax. If anything this shifts the burden somewhat to owners of more fuel efficient cars and people who drive in more fuel efficient traffic.

True. In any case, doesn't sound like a good idea to me.
