Teens Going To War: Are Cartoons the Cause?



Teens Going To War: Are Cartoons the Cause?
November 21, 2011
NEW YORK - It’s tough to keep track of your children, and monitoring their viewing experiences can seem impossible. But if you’re afraid your teens may be going to war because of it, then you may have to take it seriously. The consequences could be very dire.

The culprit seems innocuous enough. It’s a colorful, happy show. However, under the jokes lies a problem. The show is Axis Powers Hetalia, a show that makes light of cultural stereotypes, and satirizes the tragedies of World War 2, with the countries being represented by animated characters.
Teens say they’d be willing to die for their favorite characters, influenced by the relationships they have within the show. “If going towar means America and Russia will get together, then it’s worth it,” remarked a fan. She enlisted in the army, hoping to support her fandom. Struggling through boot camp, she presses on anyway.

“People join the armed forces for many reasons,” Sgt. John Madison, an army recruiter in Buffalo said, when asked about the subject. “But I must admit, going to war for cartoons is a new one. I only hope they know what they’re getting into. We’re very serious about this, and it may be more than some of these kids can handle.”
Cartoons and anime may all be in good fun, but when your teens are risking for lives for it, is it really worth it? Parents need to talk to their children, and make sure they know the difference between fantasy and reality. Because otherwise, it could mean the difference between life and death.Visit FOX News online for more info. 

Ugh.Really, fox news? Really?What kind of bullshit is this?

Post-It Wars

from: http://work.failblog.org/2011/08/05/job-fails-post-it-wars/


A post-it art war has been going on in France between the Ubisoft HQ and a bank across the street since July, and there’s been a pretty impressive collection of work done from this and other wars that this particular skirmish has inspired. A few more of the highlights:

job fails - bowser

job fails - ubisoft war

job fails - obelix

Obelix ftw!

15.08.2012 (sent from Qaiku)

I just stumbled upon an old comic doodle with me, MxCxS, DRD, Hercules characters & the Black Parade. And the Patient was hyper as f^^k.
Referring back to the war we had where I was the 3rdPartyDumbass, I flew into the sun & fell right onto the Black Parade, and Herc and his friends were there & the patient laughed & made fun of short people (first Icarus, then Phil), and he was so hyper & goofing off like FFFUUU he even sang Bow Wow's "Shorty Like Mine". WUT.

Not to mention Hercules, Icarus & Cassandra were dressed in Black Parade attires too. Hercules had a parader uniform on, Cassandra too (but Fear & Regret version), and Icarus had the Patient's attire on, which the Patient LOL'd for him being too short.

Then he continued to make fun of Phil for being shorter than his wheelchair. And I held up a pair of shorts & that made him laugh even harder. Gerard was explaining stuff & Mikey was beside him but he fell asleep.

And it all ends with Chris Brown fighting Pete Wentz. Both were vampires.


And more comics about copying on deviantART & how I was the awesomest parodist ever. Wow no wonder I was such a jerkwad back then.


It was all fun & herpderp as my imagination interpreted it; maybe not so much as what other people ACTUALLY think about the life & times back then. especially the people who are actually involved. Especially the vicitims I copied & parodied. Those who stopped being my friends eventually. The people who tried to get even with me by the means of revenge.

Oh well it was fun while it lasted.
