Mkay, so here's a new idea.

There are super heroes with super powers, right? But sometimes there are things done, for effect, that would be totally unnatural in the media(shows, books, comics, manga etc.) of various heroes and whatnot, things that could only be explained by their own super powers. Think tropes.

What I want to see is this: a set of heroes and villains with super powers that would create visual, audio or other sensory special effects seen in other hero media.

Examples-

Hero: Sentai Ranger
Ability: Makes grass explode by posing. Makes for a good attack, as long as the enemy is standing on grass.
Personality: Always wants team work with other heroes, a bit cocky, good leadership skills.
Based on: Power Rangers.

Hero: Ghibli
Ability: Produces sudden, unexplainable updrafts around himself.
Personality: Pervert. Uses his sudden updrafts to blow girls' skirts up.
Based on: Studio Ghibli's hair effect whenever someone thinks/feels something amazing.

Villain: MiasMan
Ability: Produces a dark purple mist around himself whenever he gets angry. Mist can hurt people who try to touch him.
Personality: Cruel and intolerant, demands respect and threatens to destroy all his enemies and such.
Based on: Every anime. Ever.

Hero: Bankai
Ability: Stands on the air and somehow produces clouds of dust magically out of said air whenever he gets pushed back.
Personality: Constantly trying to protect things he considers precious. Jumps headlong into fights without thinking.
Based on: Bleach.

Neutral: Cry Girl
Ability: Whenever she gets sad, she cries tremendous streams of tears.(Produced out of nowhere.) Able to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool in under a minute.
Personality: Optimistic, but easily set up for disappointment. Pouty.
Based: Every anime ever.

Villain: Mystery Beam
Ability: Creates mysterious beams of light over lewd body parts. Arch-enemy of Ghibli.
Personality: Considers anything sexual to be vile and sinful.
Based on: Anime censorship.

Villain: Mags
Ability: Any gun he uses has infinite ammunition and never malfunctions.
Personality: Gung-ho soldier-for-hire.
Based on: American action movies, anime with guns, things like that.

Hero: Makeover
Ability: Allows people's hair and makeup to stay in perfect condition no matter what happens to them. Through hell and high water, your hair will look fabulous.
Personality: Neat freak. Artistic. Vain.
Based on: Everything.

Villain: Megane
Ability: His glasses glow whenever he does something sinister.
Personality: Loves children and dogs.
Based on: Shao Tucker, various other anime characters.

Villain: Shocker
Ability: Creates thunderstorms whenever he does something evil.
Personality: Loves mad science. Has a fully devoted laboratory with lots of superfluous things shooting sparks all over the place.
Based on: EVERYTHING.

THIS IS A THREAD ASKING IF YOU WOULD WANT TO HAVE KIDS! THERE ARE OPTIONS AND A POLL! HAVE FUN WITH IT!!!!

Anyway, I brought this up because, as some of you know, my oldest brother killed himself and my parents, myself and my surviving brother are trying to fight for custody of my oldest brother's kid. The mother is a... not safe person, let's leave it at that.

So my feelings are definitely all over the place with all this. Ohyes. I figured out about a year ago that I don't like responsibility. I like having the ability to help where I need to, without the expectation. I hate it when people are relying on me. I do best when I'm free to leave if need be, because I have a degree of security that things will work out. However, if people need me, then I worry that I'll fail and everything will collapse. Too much pressure.

So yeah... raising a child who can easily do something stupid and get themselves killed? Not a good idea. Child leashes are not a bad idea, methinks.(Oh, uh, the kid we're trying to raise is currently about 2 1/2 years old. And we currently have visitation rights, which means we get to visit him every other Wednesday and we can take him home for 2 days every other weekend.) Even if the kid isn't in immediate danger just by being a kid, they're hard to take care of. Stop them from destroying stuff, stop them from hurting pets, keep them entertained, but also try not to spoil them.(GOOD LORD DOES MY NEPHEW EVER SCREAM WHEN HE DOESN'T GET WHAT HE WANTS!)

I really wish raising kids were simpler and more primitive. I can easily sit there in a den with a child and watch over it, make sure it doesn't leave the den and that it eats its food. I can make sure that things don't come into the den and eat it. That's about all I can do. Dens tend not to have wires and electricity or cars or various sharp objects that houses have.

Some people like raising kids, though. I could certainly understand it better if I was the actual parent, however, I consider that far too much work and responsibility. I'd rather not have kids. I don't think I'll ever want kids. Too much hassle, too much of a pain.

I had a dream last night that Naruto realized that Hinata liked him, so he was trying to talk to her. He just went "Hey!" and I saw it from Hinata's perspective for a second and she just looked at him and she panicked and looked away and glanced back and Naruto was still looking at her and she looked away again and glanced back again and Naruto was still there and she became even more flustered, so she ran off.

Then I saw things from his perspective, and he tried to go up to her and talk to her again and she kept running off.

It was funny, but at the same time I love seeing them together and it upset me a little that they couldn't be a couple in my dream.(Melikes teh happy end. Mehasn't finished teh mangoes yet, tho, but teh spoylurs r evriware.)

In America, there is literally a ruling that corporations are people, and money is free speech.

In other words, a corporation with a lot of money is stronger than any real person can hope to be.

Many people, myself included, think that a corporation is not at all a person, and the money is not free speech. However, the law, backwards as it is, allows it.

I hadn't actually thought of a forest fire. While where I live is mostly forest, it's always very moist. Out west, however, there are tonnes of fires all over the place, going out of control. In that case, the fire is made worse by an extremely long drought, which is made even worse by, you guessed it, corporations.

But in those fires, it's not what people are dumping, but what they're removing. Nestle is removing water, bottling it and selling it, while not having to pay for it.(They do pay, but the amount they pay is several hundred dollars for several hundred thousand gallons.) If civilians want to buy that same water, it costs them far more. But farmers are also allowed to have their water cheap, so the almond farmers get copious amounts of water while the people go without. Sure, it's not bad enough that people die of thirst, but it is bad enough that people's lawns have dried to fire tinder.

Y'know, a person can get fined $300 here for throwing a bag on the ground, though it's seldom enforced, and yet a company can dump 300,000 gallons of highly contaminated carcinogenic fluids into a river and may-or-may-not be fined.

People die from things companies get away with here. >_>

Draconic methods are too extreme, in my opinion, but I can certainly agree with heavy fines. Where I live, you can be fined $300 for littering.

Now, I mean, it's one thing to throw an apple core out onto the ground, that's perfectly biodegradable. But if you're throwing out a plastic bottle or worse, one of those six pack holder things with the loops, then that's terrible.

Cigarette butts are also a problem.

In all honesty, that's how I picture all cities. Except Canadian cities. Toronto is actually quite clean...

Oh yeah, and Pittsburgh, PA. It has a bad rep for being one of the dirtiest cities in the world, but in all honesty that was because of the steel factories there, but most have closed down. In reality, Pittsburgh is currently a very very clean city.

Anyway, I'm afraid of cities. I live in a farmland area, so there really isn't much "urban" anything.

They updated it every now and then. Not much, though.

But I've never seen Americans just throwing their trash on the ground. I know it happens, I've seen liter along the road, but still...

Anyway, this guy was just a hypocritical jerk all the time, anyway.
