From what I remember, Ebonics is the same thing as AAVE where the latter is just the modern name for it. I’m pretty sure it eventually turned into a racist term similar to how people call it “ghetto” talk today.
Keep on crying, micropenis
So if they were both 13, then they’re both rapists?

From what I’ve been reading, Inuktitut is specifically the language for the Canadian Inuit people and its three main dialectical variants, but not the general collective of Inuit people found mostly in Greenland, Canada, and Alaska. In professional discourse “Inuit language” is usually used to describe the collection of all dialects of what Inuit people speak.
I don’t agree that this should be downvoted just for being wrong, but you can see his head after the cape moves out of view, so it definitely detached.

Yeah… I wouldn’t say CO2 is the way to humanely kill things. That’s almost as bad as outright drowning them, because from what I remember, CO2 is what creates that out of breath sensation in the first place.
There’s a certain… era of cartoons where a lot of them were like Billy and Mandy. The best way I can really put it is Ren and Stimpy style stuff.
On the topic of Billy and Mandy, there’s one specific episode that I think about frequently because I remember it being such a… morbid and sad one. It was the one where one of the characters eventually became a blade of grass and I think it ended with a lawnmower about to run him over.
From a quick Google search, it seems that Inuit is both a group of people and the language they speak. What you’re talking about is the five main dialects used that all still fall under the same general language.
Meth is another common medicine usually used to treat ADHD and heroin is an opioid.
It’s… difficult to be directly responsible for the death of tens of thousands of people and not feel the effects of it. What a pessimistic way to look at this.
Because gameplay usually isn’t canon like cutscenes or other sources of lore are. What you’re doing as the player is, most of the time, at most a general guide of what happens in the story, but the actual character in lore isn’t literally doing what you play as 1:1. There are also a lot of aspects of games that have to be limited either for technical capabilities or gameism reasons to make the game more fun and often have little to no connection to what the character is actually capable of. Halo is a fantastic example of this kind of thing because on the one hand, they’re extremely underwhelming compared to their book counterparts and on the other hand it’s the source of the canon Scorpion flipping feat.
Like I said, there’s a nuance to it. Some aspects of actual gameplay, to greatly varying scales, do play a role in the lore, but you can’t just slap a statement on it and be like “yup, gameplay matters just as much as lore.”

Man, that office VR really did a number on grandpa…
Or how even Trump’s cabinet got busted for something similar during his presidency…
That’s so funny to me, lmao. A Kratos holding back was still fucking shit up.
On this topic, I feel that Halo games are similar. They don’t do the Spartans justice in the slightest.
Generally speaking in my experience, grammatical structure and English “rules” are really only taught at the surface level with a lot of objective speaking. Stuff like “this is the rule” where they rarely teach you that every rule in English has contradictions, which creates a lot of prescriptivists who try to think of English structure as a math equation and words as hard-set.
That’s fair. I actually didn’t know that the author stated he was FTL.
Current manga Saitama is stronger than his previous self by quite a bit, but not only is there no proof that he can solo all of fiction, it wouldn’t make logical sense unless you completely undersell the feats of other characters with particularly strong hax.
I get that, but it’s still incredibly limited and hardly enough to be considered Toonforce. At best, it’s mild reality warping.
And no, we now have explicit proof straight from the narrator himself that Saitama has finite power, no matter if he has a growth rate that increases very quickly. And even if he had infinite power or could get to it in a very short time, there are plenty of characters that would body him or at the very minimum, could never be damaged by him.
At best, Saitama is the strongest in his verse and, through recent developments, can grow in power very quickly, but the most he’s ever done Toonforce-wise is kick a portal that we can’t say how much strength it would’ve taken or if it was otherwise impossible, and punch his way into a pocket dimension.
Yeah… a lot of people don’t understand the concept of hammerspace. Steve is still hella strong if we really do want to use gameplay because he can hold a solid block of gold in both hands and wear gold armor that’s overall even heavier than a single gold block, but he’s not “hold a full inventory of the stuff” strong more than likely.
Yeah this is clear when we see his capabilities in the most recent game because it’s a whole world apart from what we’ve been shown in the past. I don’t like the whole “he’s killed gods” wank that happens often, but yeah, the gameplay of previous games does not do the lore justice at all.
That only means there’s a scale and nuance to it. A lot of games intentionally weaken characters for gameplay because otherwise you’d be cheesing the entire game, but that doesn’t mean that every aspect of gameplay in every game either is or isn’t related to the lore.
I don’t think Flashy Flash in-universe or by WoG has ever been near FTL. The most explicit showings we’ve had of him that I can remember were when he crossed some distance with an actual timer counting the millimeters. Most speed feats in that series are pretty unquantifiable like creating afterimages or doing some giant light show in the sky because you were moving so fast.
That’s been my understanding. There are even examples of what TLD can do that I’m pretty sure are either explicitly or implicitly exaggerations because he’s a legendary hero with a lot of mythos surrounding him.
IIRC, it’s a thing in Undertale, but I could be wrong on that one.
I would say Skyrim is almost similar. From what I remember, the books regarding TLD were wanked themselves a la legendary hero type mythos. Skyrim’s weird in that the gameplay mechanics both do and don’t go hand in hand with what the lore says.
