To her friend...

  1. So, you spent approximately 120 hours over six years doing something you hated.

    Well... I guess you win.

  2. I keep hitting myself in the head with a hammer because it's stupid and it hurts

  3. Reminds me of a guy who told me I was a loser for reading Homestuck. He said he'd read all of it and it was shit. For those of you unfamiliar with Homestuck, it's thousands of pages long. This guy read thousands of pages of something he hated, and he somehow thought I was the loser. I will never understand this type of person.

    1. I can actually understand that, with Homestuck.

      A lot of my experience of it was my friends urging me on past the first two acts filled with complete nerdy in-joke bullshit.

      I found it completely insufferable from the start, but I had three to four people at once urging me to do it, telling me that "It gets so much better" after a certain point.

      A couple times I quit watching it, either out of boredom or irritation, or both.

      But that goddamn autosave, man. It's too useful. You can jump right back into it and continue down the rabbit hole, whenever you want to, and whenever you didn't have much else to do. It DID get less annoying eventually, but no less confusing, and I'm still backlogged as far back as about... a year and a half, now? Who knows.

      Anyway, he's probably exaggerating about the "everything" bit, at the very least.

    2. What the fuck is Homestuck

    3. A terrible webcomic not worth your time. Avoid it at all costs.

    4. Homestuck is OK. Although it devolves into shipping bullshit, Andrew Hussie does get nerd cred for exploring the internet medium's capabilities as he makes his comic, and he does have a sense of humor that some people will appreciate.

      That said, if your friends are holding a gun to your head and making you read Homestuck when you don't want to, maybe you need new friends.

  4. I hit myself in the head with a hammer because it feels good when I stop.

  5. This is dedication. When I hate doing something I wimp out and quit.

  6. I never started watching Lost because I couldn't be arsed with that kind of X-files mystery cock-tease, wrapped up in the tedious soap operatics of unlikable people. When the whole thing finally stopped and a lot of unsatisfied people were still scratching their heads over the unintelligible, unanswered ending, I'll admit I felt a wee bit smug.

  7. Uggh, this tastes terrible! Try some! Seriously, though, I agree with Anon@9:02. I felt pretty smug after the finale.

  8. That smugness only lasts until you realize they're all talking about something else like Alcatraz....

  9. Weird. That was the reason that I *avoided* watching Lost.

  10. Reminds me of a friend who, just yesterday, was telling me how crappy Breaking Bad is. He's three seasons in.

  11. Maybe she was hoping it would get better in the later seasons?... Actually, that's probably giving her too much credit...

  12. In this person's defense, I despise The Big Bang Theory but have watched (and own on DVD) every episode so that when my friends start talking about how awesome it is, I can be prepared to beat them about the head with how wrong they are.

    That being said, I loved Lost...

    1. That is a really stupid reason and a huge waste of your time. Do you really care *that* much if people like something you don't? Either you secretly like Big Bang Theory, or you're really bitter and petty.

    2. And the idiots come out of the woodwork.

      Not only that, a person who hates Big Bang Theory and loved Lost?! That is fucked up.

      The LOST finale was shit, rendering the whole show into shit. Big Bang Theory is dumb fun, nothing less or more, and continues to be good at what it is. Dumb fun, much like this entire blog.

  13. I hate Naruto, but I still read it each week to see how much worse it can get.

    It has yet to disappoint.

    1. That's just going too far.

  14. I respect her opinion over someone that's never watched Lost talking about how stupid it was....

    ...I've never watched it, and have no feelings good or bad towards the show.

  15. I saw most of the first season. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It wasn't the greatest thing ever, but I didn't think it was bad by any means. That said, I didn't bother to watch anything past the first season. I kept meaning to, but... it just never seemed important.

  16. I can't make fun of her, as I forced myself to watch all ten seasons of Smallville. It's the only thing I've ever watched where I've actually thrown things at my TV out of anger. Foolish hope that they wouldn't screw up the next DC cameo kept me going, and that hope was finally and completely burned out of me with the worst finale I've ever seen.

    Sometimes a bit of masochism is a good thing, though; it puts perspective on how good the rest of the stuff I watch is.

  17. Meh, if people expected a finale to that show that made sense, they weren't really paying too much attention to what they were watching. LOST had the Chris Carter syndrome in spades. This is from someone who actually liked the show, by the way.
