How much time do you give something before deciding it's shite?

cartoons - probably about 5 minutes. At least that’s as much Rick and Morty/Adventure Time I watched before deciding it was turgid shite for people who would openly describe themselves as ‘geeks’ and enjoy going out in Green Lantern t shirts.

This forum’s not a nice place today.


it’s like brexit and trump etc, the unpleasantness hadn’t gone away, it was just lurking in people’s living rooms

I made it very clear last week that the summer of love was over on here.

Exactly. Personal preference is one thing but there’s a lot of insults being thrown around here (manbaby shit) that’s a bit much.

If I’m not feeling something I don’t force it because that can affect my attitude toward it even more. I will always go back to stuff though - I always think it’s a matter of being in the right mood/headspace/place to appreciate something, or even just feel a bit more inclined to indulge it, which is enough for some things to worm their way into your heart.

Dunno man. FOOTBALL. COCAINE. HAIRCUTS. What’s not to like.

My word this place is defensive today! I thought we’d left our bedwetting past behind us on the old boards.

This is literally how it went:

meowington: I wouldn’t date someone with a games console
You: That’s insulting to those of us who enjoy gaming.

I read comics, play computer games and have a lot of lego. I’m a man-baby, but that’s just the stuff I enjoy. Life’s too short to pretend I care about golf or classic cars or something.


It’s been a while since we’ve called the whaaaaambulance out :ambulance:


I’ve never played a video game in my life. I don’t mind people who do, so long as they don’t talk about it and do it in a different room than the one I’m in. Meaning my boyfriend spends the entire evening in the bedroom and then complains that he never sees me.

No and I’m not sure it’s a good idea. I need to save money, not be tempted into buying more lego.

You can accurately judge game of thrones as utter shit without watching a second of it. Ditto Mrs. Brown’s Boys

balonz has a way with words

It’s hard to see how golf or classic cars aren’t equally man-babyish anyway tbh.

I dunno, I’m probably just being a cunt. Sorry everyone.

I like anything that focuses my attention - I drift off a lot when reading books or watching films/TV. Used to really enjoy painting my Warhammer figures for the same reason.

I tend to build things without really having much of a plan in mind, other than knowing it’s going to be a spaceship, so just going with it and seeing what absolute fucking masterpiece I end up with.

You’re not and you’ve nothing to apologise for in this thread from what I can see.
