    What generation does being born in 1982 put me in?

    Waldorf:
    You know Statler, after watching the last seven hundred episodes of One Piece, I think I've come to a conclusion.
    Statler: No you haven't.
    Both: DOHOHOHOHOHO!

    Which definition speaks to you more?

    Members of Generation X were children during a time of shifting societal values and as children were sometimes called the "latchkey generation", due to reduced adult supervision as children compared to previous generations, a result of increasing divorce rates and increased maternal participation in the workforce, prior to widespread availability of childcare options outside the home. Because they post-dated the baby-boom and were born during a period of lower birth-rates, they have also sometimes been referred to as the "baby-bust generation".[1] As adolescents and young adults, they were dubbed the "MTV Generation" (a reference to the music video channel of the same name). In the 1990s they were sometimes characterized as slackers, cynical and disaffected. Some of the cultural influences on Gen X youth were the musical genres of grunge and hip hop music, and indie films. In midlife, research describes them as active, happy, and achieving a work–life balance. The cohort has been credited with entrepreneurial tendencies.
    Although Millennial characteristics vary by region, depending on social and economic conditions, the generation is generally marked by an increased use and familiarity with communications, media, and digital technologies.[1] In most parts of the world, their upbringing was marked by an increase in a liberal approach to politics and economics; the effects of this environment are disputed. The Great Recession has had a major impact on this generation because it has caused historically high levels of unemployment among young people, and has led to speculation about possible long-term economic and social damage to this generation.

    Seems like you kinda fall in the cracks between X and Millennial. Probably both will seem a little familiar to you in description, but not overwhelmingly.

    This thread here, and the european one are about politics too

    I've noticed that lots of people are only posting on the politics threads and the one about "nerd" movie (StarWars, Marvel, DC).
    In the end, a lot of people aren't even talking about OnePiece

    We came for the One Piece; we stayed for the community of *loosely* like-minded people talking about anything and everything.

    The only thing more mind-numbing than presidential shitposts is shitposts about Jimbei not fitting through a door or Pedro and Carrot being crewmate material because they can jump high.

    Those of us that have been here forever have already discussed most of the OP stuff there is to discuss Ad nauseam, and there's only so many times you can educate a new poster on something that was discussed at length and agreed on years ago, or argue why something might be the case.

    Why Blackbeard is the final villain and not the elder stars or Aikanu, Shanks is going to die, why Mihawk isn't Zoro's final fight anymore, no Oda didn't just kill that character no matter how dramatic a scene it was, there will be ten crewmates, no it won't be this random new character just because its a girl, skypeia wasnt filler. Oda plays fair so you can figure out the long game super clearly, but not the next week when he makes up characters and actions on the fly... but thats not the same as "anything can happen." or "the Wiki is a terrible resource for a bunch of reasons" or "the anime is problematic because it changes A and leaves out B and pads out C" etc. Yes, a new forum member can get excited about and want to talk about those things for the first time, but for those that have been around... well...

    As a result some arguments that used to go for pages of length get boiled down to thee sentences of bullet points now without much further elaboration.
    So just sort of stick with the general community for other discussion and a convenient news source.

    That's exactly an example. Three years ago there'd be multiple page debates about it for entire threads. Now it just has to boil down to "look, Oda drew the icepick in a weird way the next chapter clearly having not hit, she's a logia, and Oda is Oda. She'll be alive whenever we get the Dofla pirates cover story."

    If feeling really saucy will also mention that Monet was coughing blood *earlier* because of Tashigi attack, and also that Law and Smoker were similarly taken out by their hearts being jostled, so Ceaser even shaking it should would have had the same effect on her.

    Which then leads into even further argument that the anime extrapolated and made it a blatant stabbing, which then has to be counterpointed with the fact that the anime messes things up all the time, while simultaneously demonstrating that if Oda picked the exact one angle he could to fake the heart being stabbed and sell it, whereas the anime picked a different angle and made it super clear... and also failed to showcase the awkward icepick in the following episode.. and that since the anime leaves out coverstories she may well be dead there forever until the series finale, much like Bon Kurei... but not Pell since he survived outside of the covers.

    Some things get debated enough times they just refine and whittle down to bullet points eventually.

    Same way "there will be ten crew members" has boiled down to "BB's crew, what luffy said in the first chapter, Oda likes Soccer." Yeah the soccer thing sounds silly and like a weird thing to include, but that's because it used to be two page explanation of how Oda thinks and how important it is to him and also had a whole bunch of examples and interview quotes and various references. Now it's a sentence.


    Of course now people are going to be arguing about Pedro being dead until he's not.

    The one, news organization that's not afraid to take a different tone in criticizing the Duterte government is now being shut down by the government itself.

    Fuck my country.

    Oh silly people. Nobody dies in One Piece unless it's in a flash back or Oda makes it completely ambiguous. If there's any room for debate whatsoever, then guess what? The character is alive.

    yeh, these are pretty much theories and notions. I'm talking about simple reaction to the chapter and stuff like that.
