    I used to make that as a kid on those really shitty frozen bagels from the grocery store (not even the Lenders ones; just the store brand ones). These days, that's just too sweet for me. Just give me butter or a butter-like spread on the toast and I'm a happy camper.

    @elevenism @henryeatscereal @xfocalinx - I don't know why I didn't say this sooner, but seeing how popular and active the WWE and South Park threads have been on ETS since the old ETS.

    Nine Inch Nails fans enjoying professional wrestling and South Park just seems like a match made in Heaven to me, dare I say. I think it's also because the 1994-1995 era of NIN also reminds me of wrestling. (Granted, he's been so much more built for quite some time, but I also meant that in terms of image, and aura/atmosphere.)

    And with South Park, I'd figure it's a given as it seems like a show that Trent Reznor would enjoy, and right up his alley in terms of humor and satire.

    I don't think I could say it enough, but I'll definitely say it one last time before the 2010s end.

    YouTube, especially as somebody that went on Newgrounds and YTMND so much back in the 2000s.

    I sometimes take it for granted, but when I think about how things used to be before the Internet was the way it is now, or even just imagining what life was like without it, has certainly cheered me up as it certainly helped me not be as bored without it, even in spite of how much I like to relax at home. It has been, and always will be, as long as it's exists, one of the best time killers on the Internet ever, hands down, and just perfect for when you want to stay in and not do anything, or even if you have a hard time going to sleep at night.

    I totally get what you mean there, and not a problem. I think with me, it's a combination of work and my perception of time changing again. I'm also positive it's due to also being inundated with ETS since 2004, and social media in general since 2002, which also left me feeling jaded.

    And while I'll never knock both Internet activities, since it's been a huge chunk of my life since I was 14, but in my 30s, it made me realize just how much of a time-sink both types of sites can be. I've always been aware of it, but I'm just experiences further realizations as I age, so it's like re-learning time management again. It's almost next to impossible to keep up with on a regular basis when you're engaged in real life interactions, obligations and experiences. On the other hand, it's also easier when it's about topics you love, so there's that. But it still just gave me more reasons to cut down. Along with other changes I'd have and hope to make, since something's got to give for the 2020s, considering the fact that's also the decade I turn 40. (It's crazy, because I've been treating my body like I'm still my 20s, but I really got to stop.)

    Like other seemingly eternal struggles in life, so has been pacing myself, and just remembering how finite time itself really is. It's like we sometimes have all day, and just don't, all at the same time.

    But yeah, it's like how you need to have nothing going when binge-anything, but in this case, you really have to have nothing going sometimes online in order to engage in online discussions. Aside from getting into new interests and just being busy, it also increased my understanding on why so many huge NIN fans also either left ETS, stopped posting, or didn't even join the new ETS right away, or even ever.

    I think I just always found it fun, because I sometimes enjoy writing, and that I actually write so much better than I speak.

    But yeah, while Internet forums are anything but new, I still find it fascinating that such sites exists where people from all parts of the world can join in and discuss similar interests and points of view, etc.

    Thankfully, lurking will never get old though.

    Lurk more./Lurk moar. is indeed, Internet sage advice. Has been, and always will be.

    @Jon - I just saw your user title and wanted to show this to you. I suppose it also helps as a fan of both Mario and Alvin. I've also been on quite the Chipmunk kick after what seems to be me not following anything Chipmunk related for almost a good 21 years. Being better than I remembered it has also cheered me up.



    I figured that I might as well include these videos as well. Just knowing it exists with my two favorite red capped characters and franchises from my childhood has always made my day. And well, Bad Witch Doctor?

    Oh man, I remember that commercial; suppose that wouldn't fly these days. I originally switched my title in good nature because of the CTWC (Class Tetris World Championship). There's a 17 year old kid, Joseph Saelee, who has won the past two years and broken all sorts of live records along the way.

    Thank you for the mention. Please accept this kaiju cat as a token of my appreciation:

    I had the great fortune of seeing Nick Offerman speak recently. I think I was the only person there who knew him more from his books than Parks & Rec. My impression of him from his books was "the epitome of the harmless and/or productive parts of masculinity, while blasting everything else with deadpan satire". The live set pretty much confirmed that. Example: speaking, almost seriously sounding, about how men are simply better at anything and everything. "If you want proof, just read any of the history books we've written." Fucking brilliant.

    One of the things that struck me though is that some of jokes aimed at bashing Trumpian type thinking got much more timid applause than the general humor did. While my county is mostly blue, we are surrounded on three sides by deeply red territory (and a very, very large lake on the fourth). As we were leaving, I overheard someone saying "people might have confused Ron Swanson as a serious version of Nick Offerman, and would have been really shocked to learn what the actor is actually like". From what little I know about Parks & Rec, I could see that being the case. If so...that's fucking priceless.
