    well, i still like Toadette.

    but if you start employing cloning shenanigans to make her the second most common NPC in the universe just so you can annoy me... i'll retaliate by asking Wario to Wario Waft the entire state of California, in addition to having him throw Birdo eggs on your walls. TRY ME

    All I want is to make Wario a common NPC so I don't have to continue having to hack to kill multiple of him in games
    "Carol of the Bells", barring the lyrics, honestly sounds to me like something you'd chant with your comrades as you ride into battle, not something you'd sing on Christmas.
    I drank pumpkin spice latte once in 2017 and I'm not embarrassed to affirm it's since been a personal favourite.

    Why the fuck is it only sold seasonally, though--and, more importantly, why do sellers NEVER seem to meet demand for it?! The reason I haven't had it since is because coffee bars are always fresh out of pumpkin spice whenever I go grab it. And I'm too lazy to prepare one myself but whatever. Talk about bad luck. It wasn't even that good, actually. Grumble, grumble...

    I love belgian waffles, we used to find packages of them in the dollar store so we got them occasionally

    Now they're being sold in Walmart for like 3-4 dollars I think?
    Which I guess is good since it means people liked them enough for it to be bumped up

    I'm curious how many are packaged at once and if the price is warranted relative to that.

    Anyway, Belgian waffles are great, but you can never go wrong with stroopfwafels. Dutch waffles, as in.

    Don't know if they're sold in the US, but they're never too expensive here. 1.65 bucks / 10 pieces. Be sure to put one above a steaming hot cup of tea/coffee so it gets a little softer. Or, you can eat it the way it is. Either way, it's heaven.

    i've seen belgian waffles, i know my city has a couple places with them as restaurant items (like a food truck that focuses on them, for example)

    dunno if i could get them out of the store though
    I’m currently pissed as hell. Why, you ask?

    Dusted off New Super Mario Bros. 2 and played on my old 5-shiny-stars save file. Out of boredom, I decided to use a certain trick that would increase my score quickly, which ended with me dying five times consecutively in a level. The White Super Leaf consequently appeared—now, I was mindful of the fact that it removes the shine in your save file stars, but this stupid IGN guide assured me that would only take effect if you pick up the leaf, which I didn’t.

    Save game, quit game.

    Suddenly, the shine on my old save file is gone… And I DID NOT pick up the leaf.

    Oh, what a reprehensible world…

    In NSBMW that didn't happen.

    The best way to beat NSMBW without fear of losing shiny stars is to play in multiplayer, that's where the block doesn't show up at all.

    I did play NSMBW in multiplayer with Mario just floating in a bubble, because fuck playing as Mario, I want to be my modded Baby Luigi/Blue Toad.

    At that point, why not just mod the shiny stars in? 😄

    Might be a cheat that keeps shiny stars even when the super guide block pops up. Or you don't lose a life at all if you die.
    I remember a teacher in elementary school bringing up how Coca Cola is actually green before it’s given the characteristic brown dye (which is a myth, by the way). Everyone in my classroom went “EEEWWW”, which I found baffling because I woulda drunk that shit in a heartbeat—and I still would.

    I'd lived at the opposite end of the Black Sea from Georgia and Russia almost my whole life, but I never heard of this drink. It looks delicious!

    I'm afraid I'm not familiar with the plants it's made of. Is it similar to any other, more widely commercialised drink?

    I drank tarragon before! I actually bought it from a Russian deli. It tasted like liquid liquorice and it was ectoplasm green!

    Video game essayists/critics and food analogies apparently go hand in hand like dry wine and blue cheese.

    “[GAME] is like a medium rare steak with rosemary, MEANWHILE [SEQUEL] is like a burger patty.”
    Sometimes, it feels as though every word in the English vocabulary, on its own, has been used at least once as a title for a movie, book, or band.

    This is best illustrated when you search up an arbitrary word, and the first subject that's bound to be highlighted by Google's algorithm is a piece of media that has ascribed itself that word.

    O, First World, let thou squalid well of problems dry not.
    So, going off a handful of comments on Bob Hoskins' talk page, it seems the wiki hosted some, uh, kid-unfriendly ads in its early days, huh?

    I was here in 2009, every site had ads for Envony, which is pretty much spywares with lying boobs ads, though I suppose that could be the result of my parents going on "free movie" sites on my Wii browser

    I still find it hilarious how a swear word drawn so much controversy but I guess all the userbase aged then lol
    "The Wii u was ultimately a good move. Nintendo plans for flops in their business model, it's why they hoard money. So they can experiment and be creative without fear of going bankrupt or denting their profits in a significant way."

    - actual comment i saw somewhere.
    The forums are great as they are right now, don't get me wrong--but maaan, I wish there were a little bit more ColonelKR and MattMVS7-esque hijinks. I unfortunately wasn't around for those.

    Yes. He did. You know what's even more wild? He tried to fabricate evidence the moment my cop, Dark Light, confronted him. AND he wanted people to arrest your child...for...get this...pushing someone.

    That character who-shall-not-be-named tried to outright dismember my cop one time by planting land mines while she was pursuing her (that character was like 90 over the speed limit).

    I didn’t put finances in the game either. I just felt like all the newly added features neither complemented the simple gameplay nor were they worth my time; I like to be able to complete a game fairly easily without employing mobile game gobbledygook, and wait for content updates to repeat the process. This is a purely subjective view though, but it’s why I prefer the older games in a large sense. Presentation-wise, the game was a great step up, worthy of the sequel moniker.

    If you use the same Google account that you had Rio and Star Wars previously downloaded with, you can look into your download history and find them there! They’re redownloadable!

    @zelen !! spin the wheel once a day for a chance to get cosmetics that power you up! Oh, you got a pig? Pay 60 gems to keep going or get bent!

    Not gacha in the original sense, but hey, you’re using premium currency to get closer to a desired outcome in case of failure.

    @Magolor04726, gacha is a type of gameplay where you earn rewards from either a crate, wheel, or a card game.
    I love your theme change!

    i think star trek could be a unique theme change. however, i've only watched a spin-off movie quite a while ago so i'm not familiar enough with the franchise to voice my feelings on the character.

    as for leonard? you want to be a PIG? BUCK-AWWWWK!!!

    i'd say go for who you favour more first.

    yes i like the pigs

    i think i’ll go with data!
    Premise 1: Pirates of the Carribean content will be in Sea of Thieves.

    Premise 2: Sea of Thieves is part of the Rare Ltd universe.

    Conclusion: Pirates of the Carribean officially happens in the same universe as Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.
