sirrani -- By the time this question shows up on next week's poll I'll have 3 kids and thereby making me insanely old. What is the first step I should take in an effort to recapture my youth?
If the mothers-of-three who lived in my old apartment building were any experts on the matter, wear as youthful and revealing clothing as you can squeeze into.
Dump them off on your mother, what else?
You want to be back in the barhopping phase of your life, but you need to breastfeed. Do what every classy mother does and bring your kids with you.
Realign your priorities to how they were set 10 years ago. You've spent nearly three years of your life growing these children and you've earned some Me Time. Sure, your kids may suffer, but they'll learn valuable self-sufficiency skills.
eideteker -- Who's the greatest mudskipper of them all? Is Ren and Stimpy better or worse if you go back and watch it now while aware of the homosexual subtext?
Homosexual subtext or not, Ren and Stimpy does not hold up to memory when watched again. It's glaringly obvious it was the first "subversive" cartoon, and things that were edgy then have since become hackneyed to the point where it seems derivative.
If being forced to conceptualize the sexual roles and mechanics of a subintelligent bloated cat and the cartoon chihuahua version of Steve Buscemi makes Ren and Stimpy better, then it's way, way better.
From Moby Dick to Huckleberry Finn, Lethal Weapon to Ren and Stimpy, there's nothing better than looking back on old works through the lens of homosexual subtext.
Homosexual subtext doesn't do anything to improve the terrible pacing.
renob423 -- when did there get to be so much talking in video games? i could only stomach 10 hours of masseffect and i just started dragon age and its nothin but motherfuckers talking. when did this trend officially begin and which of the 2 games mentioned is nerdier
Dude, stop buying BioWare games then. That's their whole schtick.
Ever since the graphics have been good enough that we don't have to read the entire conversation.
Dragon Age. Fantasy always out-nerds Sci-Fi.
10 hours of talking in Mass Effect was too much? You hadn't even endured 10 hours of driving over mountains yet.
His kids are going to:
Gain 75lb between their 18th and 19th birthdays.
Enjoy a heroin habit the magnitude of which the world has never seen nor fathomed.
Be thinnest, and therefore most morally-superior children in the entire Florida Gulf Coast region.
Grow up to be just as irritating to be around as this guy must be.
