Hold up guys, because I'm about to go all inspirationfag on you.

The reason that Morticia and Gomez worked so well is because they never lied about who they were (or at least not for much longer than one episode). They never hid their creepy, weird tastes because other people wanted them to, they just were who they wanted to be and because of that they found the perfect person to be with.

This is why so many people fail in their relationships. They try to be who they aren't (be it a stud or a genius or someone with a social life) and because of that they are unhappy.

True love is when you love the other person for who they truly are. That is the lesson of Gomez and Morticia.

They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking.
This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidently show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidently saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

I actually cried a bit after reading this. you should teach those relationship shows that schools sometimes show in assemblies that no one really paid attention unless the guy was funny.

Does this only work after high school or am I just too insane?
User avatar #56 to #54 - snowshark (04/28/2013) [-]
You're looking in the wrong place.

High Schools are literally the worst place in the western world for the progress of human society. They stifle originality and individuality and promote the worst kinds of peoples. You should invest in conventions or similar geek-fests. If you want to find people who are unafraid to be who they are, look no further than the geek culture.

Trekkies to Bronies, geeks have always been characterised as people who are unafraid to just enjoy what they want to enjoy, regardless of what people think of them.
#62 to #54 - Xyhpon (04/28/2013) [-]
I can concur with the other post, high schools aren't there to form long lasting relationships, at least not the kind you want. In high school, relationships are not supposed to last, they're supposed to be as fleeting as the trends your peers set. The only thing they teach you to do is how to not go about having one.
The only advice I can give you is to stop searching for a long lasting relationship while you're still there. Do what you enjoy doing and you will find someone who also enjoys what you enjoy. Don't fool yourself into thinking you need to search for someone or change your positive attributes for them. Trust me, the only thing you'll find in high school when searching for that kind of relationship is a painful end.
User avatar #63 to #62 - baine (04/28/2013) [-]
I agree with you, but I went about it in a different way. To me relations of any kind in high school are a waste of time and money. Considering how I'm about to graduate, looking back now I feel like I made the right choice.
User avatar #66 to #63 - snowshark (04/28/2013) [-]
I never bothered with people in general in High School. Even in the UK they're all vapid and worthless to me. People wrapped up in what's hot and what's not and gossip mags and sports and all those other mind-numbing distractions that keep them from seeking knowledge or broadening their horizons.

I don't begrudge them their tastes, wether or not I agree with them, but High Schools are just mixing pots where true individuality is nothing more than a hinderance so the weak cast it off in search of camaraderie.

If you learned that early enough to save yourself then congratulations, you're in an elite club that most never even see.

Perish the thought. The mood on funnyjunk is informal and allows for daftness and tangents. It works.

But aye, the substance abuse and terrible music don't help shift people towards the pursuits that really pay dividends in the long-run.

The people in high school are very fleeting, the friends you make may not last. The relationships most definitely wont. Some people learn this the hard way, others learn it from observation. You're lucky to have realized this before you got yourself caught up in something.
User avatar #71 to #70 - baine (04/28/2013) [-]
I've always had the ability to hang out with any crowd I want. I just never wanted to. 30% of gaining social skill is through actual socializing. 70% is from observing expression and emotion from a distance.
#79 to #71 - Xyhpon (04/28/2013) [-]
I liked to observe everything in high school, but people had this way of flocking to me I guess. As for hanging out with any crowd I severely lacked that, it never interested me to immerse myself for they all seemed so vain.
User avatar #84 to #79 - baine (04/28/2013) [-]
There were only 4 people who I ever wanted to actually hang out with. We could have easily pulled off a sitcom or anime. We had the loud and proud (me), silent but deadly (my best pal), the always angry(the newest member), the gay(my other best pal), and the adorable one(the one who claims she is my daughter).
#88 to #84 - Xyhpon (04/28/2013) [-]
Haha, there were about 8-9 of us total at the end of my time in high school. My friends were all very... unique but we were essentially gamers which we were proud of. Our group consisted of more stereotypes then anything else, we had the firecrotch (myself), the nerd, the indian, the asian, the mexican, the wants to be-jock, the also jock, the adhd one, and the floaters (people who would appear and disappear every now and again).
User avatar #89 to #88 - baine (04/28/2013) [-]
I can barely handle 4. 8-9 would be too much. Would be too much disagreement.
#92 to #89 - Xyhpon (04/28/2013) [-]
We were kind of a conglomeration, any disagreements we had would be quickly disputed and then dispersed, but there weren't many in the first place surprisingly. I don't tend to like crowds, but they were fun while it lasted.
User avatar #93 to #92 - baine (04/28/2013) [-]
I gotta say though, as much as I dislike crowds. Being the only sober person at a party is probably the funniest thing I've ever seen.

User avatar #64 to #62 - snowshark (04/28/2013) [-]
I think it is important to stress that one should not be discouraged from searching. It is not that searching bears no fruit, rather most people search in the wrong places.

To find the one for you often it is best to immerse yourself in what you love and do so publicly. If you don't search for the one you love then it is less important. Searching takes time and effort. It makes the whole experience more rewarding and often provides a lot of good memories.
#68 to #64 - Xyhpon (04/28/2013) [-]
I agree with you that people always search in the wrong places. I prefer to think of "keeping an eye out" for when they do happen to come along rather than taking the time to search though. Everything else you say I agree with however.
User avatar #78 to #68 - snowshark (04/28/2013) [-]
I am not on the market for a woman or man (yeah, I'm bi... greedy bastard that I am) at the moment but mainly because I am focussed on my work. I still keep an eye out.

However, were I to actually want a relationship then I would go about searching. I think the difference between searching and keeping an eye out is the active factor and if you want to find a significant other then you should search but if it is not your top priority then just keeping an eye out is fine and dandy.

See, this is why people say "be yourself" as relationship advice. Not because it'll make you more attractive (as some people might suggest), it'll probably make you less attractive to most people even.
But if you lie about who you are then any relations you build aren't going to last, you need to find someone who can love you for being you, then you'll be happy.

Y'know, it's watching this .gif that makes the disparity in the animation styles between the two series so much clearer. Korra has much sharper detail, better shading and less unrealistically bright/full colours.

It's a nice .gif on it's own but it's a real treat for people who're into animation & artwork.

So thanks.
User avatar #12 to #6 - greenwithenvy (04/27/2013) [-]
You're welcome, I also find the height difference staggering, like they really tried to make it more human and mature instead of the bright vibrant smaller animation.
User avatar #13 to #12 - snowshark (04/27/2013) [-]
Well, strictly speaking the height difference isn't all that staggering. Aang was about 12 when his story started. Korra is 17 and from a pretty sturdily-built peoples.

The differences in the two series are very interesting. Almost every single change feels like the original series just grew up a little bit. From a strictly analytical standpoint it was an amazing feat to make something so visually and tonally different whilst making it concurrent with the original.

Season 2 is shaping up to be something special.
#40 to #13 - anon (04/28/2013) [-]
Honestly, one of the main reasons I never got into watching the show was the difference n animation styling. That and Korra is like.. Too tall and bulky looking, it throws me off lol
User avatar #41 to #40 - snowshark (04/28/2013) [-]
Eh, can't argue with taste. I'd still suggest you watch it because it is bloody brilliant but aesthetic value counts for a lot in animation and some styles just don't suit people's tastes.
User avatar #17 to #13 - zanea ONLINE (04/28/2013) [-]
Has season 2 started?
User avatar #22 to #17 - snowshark (04/28/2013) [-]
Not as of yet. They weren't expecting to do a second season. They had plans, just in case, but they had accepted that Korra would probably just be a final hurrah for the Avatar franchise.

However... it turned out to be the most popular thing they'd ever done, bringing in fans new and old and critically acclaimed across the board.

As such we're now getting 2/3 more full-length seasons that had to be done from the ground up after the final episode of Season 1 ended based upon feedback. So we can assume we will be waiting some time yet for season 2. (Especially given the high production-values, emphasis on hand-drawn animation and backgrounds and high frame-rate.)

The voice actors had assumed it'd be out early April, but then they recanted their statements(on Twitter).
User avatar #87 to #86 - snowshark (04/28/2013) [-]
Hrr... that would actually make sense as it fits similarly to season 1, however it is more likely to be nearer fall-time given that they will naturally want to have started advertising a month or two in advance.

My parents ARE like that, and I ******* LOVE them for it.

I am proud to say that for the past 22 years, my parents have been madly and ridiculously in love with each other since they first met. Every single one of my friends have loved meeting my parents. I am so thankful that they are mine. I have learned the true meaning of dedication and love, through my parents. No better way to learn it. In my own opinion.

To those you haven't had the chance to experience that, I am truly sorry. I hope that an event, or person in your life makes up for what you've missed out on.
