In the U.S., I don't like the term "authentic" to describe ethnic food that better matches country of origin. It implies the food here is "faked", "bastardized" or "tastes worse/cheaper" by default, like people aren't allowed to experiment cuisine with different ingredients. Moreso, a lot of the "inauthentic" "Americanized" food were developed by immigrants from their food's country of origin. I prefer distinguishing cuisine as "traditional" and "Americanized".
I'm not the biggest fan of Panda Express, but I like their food all the same, and I've heard anecdotes of middle-aged Chinese immigrants who people think would balk at the food loving the food all the same.
Why are Mario games frequently so horrific at options? No sound sliders (like what if bgm get you content ID while you're streaming; there's no way to disable this while keeping other key aspects of the game like sfx and voices; other games disabling music would actually help people detect important noises more easily), no control stick sensitivity adjustments, not a single smidge of accessibility like color blind mode, text size changes, changing audio cues to visual cues, no way to remap any sort of button (like wouldn't it be nice if people with motor issues or don't have a reliable other hand to play can play if buttons were remapped especially for button mashers and control stick rotation minigames; also people going from Xbox/Playstation to Nintendo games will appreciate a remap), no game speed adjustments besides text speed; probably more. I went to Mario Party Superstars's options and it was pretty shocking on how there's so little you can do there. It might as well not even be there.
The game's tutorials and easy-to-explain nature is a plus, as well as the really easy-going bots on easy and the assist modes of other games, and it's nicely baked into the game design, but beyond there, the options menu in Mario games tend to be extraordinarily pathetic. An absolute disgrace of these menus. Do better, Nintendo. And this should be highlighted more.
"The Sora makes its presence known with plaintive whistles and whinnies rising from the marshes all across North America. Despite its abundance, it is not often seen: As with other rails, it spends most of its time hidden in dense marshy growth or wet meadows. Occasionally it will walk about in full view at the edge of a pond, delighting any birders who happen to be nearby. Although Soras might seem like weak fliers when seen fluttering over the marsh, they regularly migrate long distances, many going to South America for the winter."

Unpopular opinion but sites shouldn't be hosting "enhancement" mods for female characters and the like. It's super aliennating for me. It's on the same ick I get for people that create mods that whitewash black characters like Nessa from Pokémon.
