    Yeah, I mean, most of the really excessively fanboyish/girlish stuff that bores me are because it's fandoms that I'm not into.

    Though there are some times where even in my own fandoms, I'm a bit weirded-out. Like, some of this person's (Wordpress, not Tumblr, I know, but w/e) more fangirlish, less analysis-y posts.

    Or the times when "excessively angry" and "fangirlish" combine. Like after a certain Downton Abbey character died, and there was some idiot on the Downton tag saying that the writer and their children deserved to "die in a fire" because they killed off their favorite fictional character.

    I was like:



    (Plus, it wasn't even the writers' fault, it was because the actor wanted to leave the show. But like, that's totally beside the point.)

    (Also people need to stop using the phrase "die in a fire." The point of that phrase is that being burned to death is a really slow, agonizing death - hence why people in burning buildings jump out - so it's a particularly awful thing to wish on someone. It's getting overused to the extent that I think people have forgotten that.)

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    Oh, I'm sure people still realize that. It's just that people have no sense of restraint or fairness any more.

    @mariowie; I'm here now, but I was taking a nap.

    @Jack Pschitt; I don't know, I think people have heard it so many times that they just throw it out there and don't really think about what they're actually saying.

    Or people are just crazy, like you said. Either explanation works.

    People just love pushing the envelope. They like going as far as they can get away with. This can be funny in some cases or if there's a limit (like with kid's shows adding more "adult" humor), but taking it too far just to take it too far is stupid and indecent, not to mention it gets old very quickly.

    Yeah, does anyone know why it was eliminated? It was very helpful.

    I have deduced which time zones everyone is in based on past convos.

    Eastern Time:
    Jolene
    GBM
    Jack
    Ninfia

    Greenwich Time:
    Pokemoll
    Maria

    Central European Time:
    Mijzellffan
    Mariowie

    Eastern European Time:
    Chespin

    Thats all I can think of off the top of my head.

    I knew that because I know where all of those people live except for you.
    That's nice.

    I've alwys had a fixation with Time Zones since I got that atlas when I was 5.

    To this day, I have not figured out how live TV works on the west coast.
