|Why do girls feel the need to be pretty?
(201 posts, 22541 views) Posted: 2490d 22h, 11m ago by Aristocrat in Chatter Box
Um well... for me personally, I would want to be pretty because the more aesthetically pleasing someone is on the outside, the better they're treated. Certainly there is also the self-esteem factor but let's face it, prettier people get nicer treatment. This ...

Hmm... though I usually like Asian pretty boys none of them as ever literally leave me in deep thought like Cillian Murphy. His eyes are just so... blue lol.
I mean, yes Asian guys, they're such a mix of cute and sexy but... man Cillian Murphy is gorgeous, like God h ...
|Has the quality of music degraded?
(57 posts, 6342 views) Posted: 2672d 3h, 44m ago by Aristocrat in Music
Not at all, it is subjective. Music style has evolved, whether it suits the tastes of each individual person is up to them. Music, of course has become more commercial but you can easily say the same for the stuff that came out in the 80's and what have you.
|What's your favorite Nirvana song?

I like their David Bowie cover but that's about it. They did a pretty nice cover. I'm impartial to almost all their other songs though. ...

Girls need to be pretty to get guys. This isn't too difficult a feat however, if you are at a healthy weight and have good hygiene, you're already 90% there since most girls are naturally pretty in their own way.
Girls need to be prettier, however, to show u ...

Um... that Drake guy, wow, his songs are so freaking annoying.
Lil Wayne, in fact, why don't we just throw all of Young Money in there while we're at it.
The super emo bands - MCR, PATD, etc etc...
Taylor Swift, I didn't have a problem with her bef ...

Anza from HEAD PHONES PRESIDENT.
Hamasaki Ayumi (overrated yes, but dang does her lyrics hit close to home, and yes she does write all her own lyrics)

Meh, the songs are indeed catchy and I admit she has a strong voice.
Her fashion and videos are very avant-garde. She's also quite business minded, she knows what the public wants and she's ready to deliver the crazy. I may even go so far to say th ...
|Equality in Relationships
(43 posts, 4163 views) Posted: 2714d 3h, 56m ago by Aristocrat in Chatter Box
Hmm I think it's possible. It's just difficult to gauge. Love means something different to everyone
As for equality between women and men, there is no such thing. I don't know about other countries but in America, it only pretends to exist. I also do ...

Depends on who it is, why they're lying and what they're lying about.
Circumstances are everything. ...

Uh... well I became a vegetarian, gave up on soda and junk food (a chocolate bar and a bag of chips like once a month is okay though...) ...
|The Japanese Slaughter.
(27 posts, 2566 views) Posted: 2768d 14h, 52m ago by Aristocrat in Manga General
Not really, maybe the purpose was to sound ignorant? Well maybe some are trying to sound ignorant and some are ignorant. It doesn't really matter to me. Japan's poor form on the usage of the English language doesn't reflect on me, so I co ...

I have no problem with pedophiles, people who fantasize about raping people... just raise the age limit of possessing such items... (maybe 25)
Oh and... having this stuff in the open lets me know who not to talk to, because honestly I hate all that stuff. Different folks diffe ...

About the same. Though I'm usually meaner in real life. It really depends because I act the way I do because I can see the person I'm talking to. If I can't, I'm usually nicer. ...

There were a few that I've come across but didn't read, read. Like Sailor Moon and Peach Girl, so I guess the first one I did seriously read was probably Marmalade Boy... maybe, or something CLAMP. ...

Since I'm Chinese my family expects me to date another Chinese person. Other Asians are okay as LONG as they aren't Japanese (ironically), they used to have problems with Koreans too but then my parents got really into kdramas...

|Is it Wrong to eat Pets?
(96 posts, 6946 views) Posted: 2795d 23h, 40m ago by Aristocrat in Chatter Box
No way. That's sick. If you have to in order to survive than by all means dig in (just like people would eat other people if they had to) but just for the heck of it... no way.
It's like eating your friend.
However if you're talking about "pet" an ...
|Bullied because of manga
(57 posts, 6701 views) Posted: 2797d 18h, 9m ago by Aristocrat in Chatter Box
First off, never declare yourself as an otaku. Technically if you are an otaku you do want a 2-d boyfriend. There is a difference between enjoying manga/anime and being an otaku.
And second of all, being a otaku is nothing to be proud of, not in Japan nor in any ot ...

I know a good amount of grammar, around ~500 kanji and all the textbook verb conjugations. (Slang is lost on me) Of course I know hiragana and katakana...
I can sing Jpop songs pretty well, you only need to know at most 30 verbs and you've got 99% of Jp ...

Quote from ExzyruSxxx
Why does every story have to have some kind of underlying moral or theme?
In order to create something you need a theme but not every story has a moral, maybe a message or a point but not a moral.

|Is peace EVEN possible?
(115 posts, 7801 views) Posted: 2804d 14h, 39m ago by Aristocrat in Chatter Box
Of course it is. The world today is a lot less bloodier than it used to be. Technology is slowly eradicating the needs to fight because it is steadily isolating people from each other.
We'll get there eventually. ...
|Determining Gender in Forum
(46 posts, 3942 views) Posted: 2814d 12h, 44m ago by Aristocrat in Chatter Box
Sometimes I try to pass myself off as male. (I don't mean on this forum) I do this because I relate more to guys than to girls... but....
I get ignored by most girls online anyway, UNLESS I lie and state that I am male. How funny is that?
|Using Japanese words in english sentences.
(276 posts, 38397 views) Posted: 2815d 1h, 45m ago by Aristocrat in Chatter Box
Well Japan does it for English, it's only fair. They use English because they think it's cool.
If we don't like people using Japanese in their sentences because we think it sounds stupid, does that look like we think Japanese is beneath usage in Englis ...

I usually go... "Wow, awkward silence" and we both laugh and find a topic to talk about.
It works, they're thinking it, you're thinking it, why not just tell it like it is? Sometimes if we don't find a new topic we'll talk about very awkwar ...
|Does the origin of Humans matter to you?

It's very interesting, I'm surprised more people aren't interested. Then again we're a pretty dumbed down, cynical and indifferent generation (unless it pertains to our immediate enjoyment or lack thereof).
Also, I am also disappointed with ...
