I'm a big NFL fan, specifically of the Seattle Seahawks. I follow a message board to keep up with things because I live outside the US and don't get any TV coverage of NFL activities. The guys on this board are ridiculously macho. They feel threatened by pink uniform accents during Breast Cancer Awareness week and when Katy Perry's Roar was played as the Cincinnati Bengals took the field - it's a heavy-metal-only game as far as they are concerned. They also tend to be rather homophobic. The idea of an openly gay NFL player offends many.

If I was to characterize the general poster, it would be "young whitebread WWF-lovin heavy-metal homophobe".

So I laughed my ass off when someone posted a video of Marshawn Lynch's highlights with "The perfect soundtrack" which was a song by Judas Priest.

Music by a doe-eyed brunette with big tits is "gay" but music from the openly-gay man who introduced fetish gear to the heavy-metal scene is "perfect".

I had an amuse.

Yeah, the average NFL fan is a moron. I ran into messages about Jonathan Martin being weak and that he did not understand the Warrior's Code.

Blizzard's services were hit by severe lag midweek last week. Their ISP, XO Communications, posted on Facebook that the reason was the traffic demand of Apple releasing iOS7.1 increased usage enough to cause issues on their network.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

The french name is possibly more horrible than the Italian one.

It's one of the axioms of the French language:

If it's original content in French, it'll sound awesome.
If it's a direct translation of an existing language, it'll be so bad it's horrible.
If it's a free-form version loosely (if at all) based on the existing language, it'll be so bad it's good.

The solution? Let the French team think up their own names and dialogues!
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Actually, it's "Hokuto de cuisine". No, seriously. To say AB productions didn't give two fucks about their subbing is being kind to them. And don't get me started on the opening/ending themes.

EDIT: and just because I'm amused like that, if you want to insult the French, we up here in Belgium have a *much* better angle to strike - you know why they bury people face-down in France?


Ever tried filling up their goddamn big mouths they keep flapping about how great they think they are?

That was the absolute worst point in a terrifying history of french dubs that tried to pass off jewels of subtelty like City Hunter and Hokuto no Ken for kid's cartoons. For the record, the Simpsons were also marketed as such when they started popping up in French.

Actually no, being American, I've never seen the front of a Frenchman.
