    Whoa now, Foolio. Petty, yes, I'll grant you, but its far from irrelevant.

    I just saw an article on this, although the one you've linked seems to go into a bit more detail. Definitely a sad thing to hear. Arguably it pales in comparison to a lot of the bigger, in the sense of world or at least country stage, stories that tend to get talked about in here, but I think no less meaningful for that. It hits home all the closer on account of, well, being literally fairly close to home for me. I'd never heard of this guy before now, but it's just always wonderful to know that there are people out there trying to make the world a better place in whatever little way they can, and so sad when they have to be the ones to leave all the sooner.

    Ugh... is there a reason you felt the need to make a random slam against me in a topic I haven't even been in lately?....

    Sorry then I guess. We've just had this discussion a few times in the past and it feels like I'm always the only one advocating spelling his name not the FUNimation dub way, so it felt like it was referring to me.

    Sorry, my bad.

    Nope. Mostly just general forum history and a debate that half the people have seen here a dozen times, as a reference point for one line joke about a similar current indignity.

    As far as the actual topic at hand.... I'm with Noqanky.

    Spelling mistakes or misuse of a term like that messes things up since it can potentially cause confusion or problems.
    There are actual places called "Columbia" as Fool pointed out, that's what the "C" in "Washington D.C." stands for.

    Who knew Peter Falk was popular enough to have a country named after his character?

    I occasionally slip into the habit of spelling it Frieza because of quoting a message that spells it that way but, in my heart of hearts, it'll always be spelled Freeza.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    The Duggars have already screwed themselves over (pun intended), but do they REALLY think TLC will accept such a show proposal?

    Wow! The absolute gall to pitch a show for helping abuse victims when their own son victimized his sisters. Disgusting.

    These networks have accepted/produced reality shows that were far worse than this.

    True enough. But when they cancelled their show (one of their top-raters) because of the scandalous things the Duggar's son did, do they really think they will accept a show they produce about COUNSELING?

    They canceled it not because of what he did but because it became large news. People have known about their son did for years. I find it very hard to believe they had no idea when they made the show.

    Even if TLC's audience is willing to support the Duggars through another terrible show I doubt they would find companies willing to put ads on it so that would kill the idea more than anything else.

Even people that typically claim to be trans allies will jump out and be like "I refuse to consider Manning a woman because Manning comitted a crime" like gender identity is a privilege one needs to earn and it's somehow impossible to both respect her gender identity AND have a problem with what she did and feel her prison sentence is justified...

    Most people don't really see this unless they too have travelled and met other travellers on the journey. It was only the other night I was listening to a guy rant on about a trip in africa involving him drinking with a mini dictators limo, while the remaining part of his convoy were held at gunpoint. Stuff like that makes me realise just how little I've pushed the boat out.
    Now excuse me as I go salute the flag of my country according to some of my inlaws. Those ignorant jingostic imperialist bastards or something.
    And pretend to sing the national anthem, which starts off "god save our gracious queen~", "mumble mumble murmer murmer"
    *hide in the crowd of other people that don't have a clue what the lyrics are beyond the first verse*.

    Speaking of which; I wonder how many of you in the US honestly know the US national anthem.
