I tried to answer twice to Gokyr's reply to me on his wall, but for some reason it didn't show up anywhere. I will try like this instead then and hope that works. But I have a few things I wish to say as a final note, hopefully this can be respected and left here. It is a personal blog after all. I have retired, and thus I want to say a few final things before I leave this wiki for good.
Gokyr says: "but some control and restraint should still have had been exercised", yes that is exactly what I did, which resulted in this issue being resolved peacefully 6 months ago, and not heard from until now when a kid who didn't know what he was talking about spilled the beans.
But anyway, I understand now. Back then when I found out (in a PM) that he …Read more >
I decided to write this blog post to shed light on an issue that I feel is getting worse constantly...
In recent years, I noticed a change in attitude towards children. When I was a kid, and throughout history, children have always been considered "annoying". Most children are difficult in some way. They're forgetting instructions and rules, asking dumb questions, and so on. It's also to be expected that children can't speak or write properly, and things they create (like videos, drawings) will not be perfect. Children are not fully developed, physically or mentally. They will act in stupid ways. They will say and do stupid things. This is natural and it's part of their development. This has always been more or less understood and …Read more >
About the list of Untergangers
Many times over the years, I've been wondering about the logic behind the list of Untergangers. I can see why it exists, and I can see a point in having it. But, I don't understand the idea of basing the order in which the names are presented on statistics? (Views, subs). Those numbers change often, usually daily, meaning that in order for us to have an updated list with current/valid information, someone needs to check the stats of 400+ people daily. It can't be done. It's not realistic.
I would like to suggest a few changes, in order to create a properly organised, informative list.
A group of people of say 10-20, agree to edit 20-40 names each. We make a schedule, so when one person is done, the other picks up …Read more >
The element of surprise
This article is about how the element of surprise can be used to make a parody more fun, and it's mostly dedicated to people who are in the beginning of their parody making. First of all I wanna point out that I'm not claiming to be an expert, and I don't always use this principle in my own parodies. I'm just sharing what I've learned by watching other parodies, and from my real life studies (psychology). Hopefully someone will find it useful!
When you expect something to be funny; it usually isn't. Which is why many jokes aren't really that funny, because when you read it/hear it - you expect it to be funny. Same thing if someone says "you gotta see this, it's sooo funny!", you might laugh a little and find it entertaini…Read more >
