i already see and hear so much marketing shit about these quite frankly terrible franchises it makes me mad when regular people join in and essentially volunteer to be part of the PR blitz. Stop wasting my brain's cpu cycles and stop rotting your own with this crap. You're better than this

I have three toys in my colon: a Troll doll, a Koosh ball, and a Slinky

Shopping for speakers is frustrating because some are priced per speaker and some are priced per pair of speakers and none of the vendor websites allow you to sort by "price per speaker".

Product descriptions on aliexpress are often just such a hilarious jumble. Almost as good as a Markov chain. Actual example: "Free Shipping Female adult christmas clothes ball of company annual meeting costume rabbits loaded".

Just put new tires on my bicycle. I think it's the first time I've replaced them due to wear instead of due to destruction by something pointy.

I see some people I follow having rough times and I just want to try to comfort them but I don't because I don't know them in real life and I suspect it would be creepy.
