i agree with brad. that's not funny. it's brutal and cruel.
Humour is subjective, though it's not something I find funny.
This isn't the place to talk about how you find death funny Smile

People die regardless. Ever see videos from people such as Danger Dolan, who explain some of the strangest deaths? There are weird ways people have died. I don't find tragic death to be humor.
But to each his own.

Eat your Turkey first, or you get no presents Speechless
Oh god Danger Dolan, he always makes list that involve "creepiest" and "dumbest"!
..Well then, really was...hmm, wow...
My spirits are low, but my appetite is high for the upcoming holiday season. I can't wait to chow down on some noodles and mashed potatoes.

Black Friday is an event and subject I won't touch with a ten foot pole. I hate greed as much as I hate crazed, obnoxious, shoppers fighting over a $40 Paula Dean cooking set.
I'm excited for Cyber-Monday, where I can see all of the websites crashing!
JK, that usually doesn't happen.
But I'll be hunting for a good gaming laptop on Monday, for sure!
I realllllly wish I could cash in on Black Friday deals or Cyber-Monday deals. So many good things at low prices.

Too bad I live half-way across the world, and I'm not allowed to buy anything right now hahah.
Thanks to @[gankoba], I now know that Hato means pigeon in Japanese.

Unsmith
You are WBO's pigeon, sir.

I hate Black Friday. I have to work until 1 am on Thursday and then be to work early in the morning on Friday so that some idiots can get phones for slightly cheaper. I hate people in this country.
I have always wanted to participate in black Friday for the competitive aspect of it. I think I would be pretty good at muscling my way through crowds and getting the low priced items before anybody else. It seems like too much waiting though, and an idea that I would not like to encourage either, so that's why I have never actually taken part. Plus I don't wanna get stabbed or something either if stuff gets that out of control

Fair enough, there is that side of the coin. I'm used to bad crowds and all here in Indonesia when there are large discounts and all, but does it get that bad in America? Even with the image of how... unintelligent... the image of the average American citizen is online, I feel it's fair to give them the benefit of the doubt.

I don't even mind crowds. The problem is that, on a normal day, I usually have several people trying to talk to me at once and I make it a point to only help one customer at a time. Sure, I get yelled at all the time for it (by customers), and have to see adults throw what is practically a temper tantrum on the daily, but at least I know I'm doing my job right. Because of the Black Friday sales I have to work ridiculous hours and deal with even more people than usual.

I'm mostly just bitter about having to work so late and not receiving time and a half for it. My job is OK, it's nothing amazing but it could be worse. My pay is decent and it's easy to save so I can't complain. Japan is the end goal, so when I get stressed lately I'll just remind myself that I'll be out of here in July now that I've got all of my visa information worked out.
I'm a little worried. On Miiverse people are "report bombing" me and i'm one warning from a permanent ban. I love the administration system there. (Not sure if this fit in WBO Random Thoughts or here.)

I swear you've posted about getting in trouble on miiverse here before. lol
I just don't post there anymore. Nintendo is still trying too hard to be PC,

"Political correctness" isn't a real thing (it's usually used by people who want to avoid being kind to others), and Nintendo is a family-friendly company, so of course posts on their site need to be family-friendly. What do you expect?
Guys, I have less than two weeks until I turn 17 and I have all of these stupid irrational fears floating around the lobes of my brain. Mostly because this is the age where I'm one year from being a legal adult I guess. I need to apply for more scholarships and colleges.

But in the end, my birthday is the day after @[Bey Brad] so therefore all of those fears are ripped away.
As a competitive Nintendo player, all I have to say is, DO NOT get involved with mii verse, it's honestly the worse place on earth. People there get so easily butt hurt that it's ridiculous, there should be an option on mii verse to make your account/posts 18+ honestly, even if it is a "family-friendly" zone. My tip is either go to forums that are related to the game you want to talk about or whatever, or just stay away from mii verse.

A better report system. To not have people be banned for pointless things.
I mean, it doesn't have to be 100% okay for little kids. I think Nintendo should keep in mind that they can't censor everyone. Of course things like pornographic material should be banned, but still... A little leniency wouldn't hurt too much, especially when you're trying to make a social network.

Or you could just consider that not every online community is for you. The suggestion that Nintendo should have an 18+ forum – when there are a near-infinite number of websites catering to adult gamers where you can discuss Nintendo to your heart's content – goes totally counter to every value Nintendo embodies as an organization.

Mii Verse is obviously intended to be a safe space for anyone of any age; not every website or company needs to cater to your very specific needs. Same with the WBO, too. We try to strike a decent balance between letting people express themselves here while also keeping in mind that all ages, perspectives, and even people like parents and event organizers also visit this site.

Good luck man. It's not an easy time of life. Hit me up if you ever wanna talk.

I'm a competitive Nintendo player as well. I've been active on Miiverse since July as well so I knew where to find a safe haven. But have you been 2-week banned yet? I have like 5 times.
