Fuu: I feel your pain. I have a spore-based allergy to mushrooms. And guess what the number 1 most popular food is in Korea?
...Well, yes, you're right, kimchi would be the big number one. But number 2?
They put mushrooms in everything: lasagna, bread, chicken soup, salad, anything with meat in it, and I swear to Flying Kung Fu Jesus (but not his amazing giant robot) I saw some kids' variety of mushroom flavored toothpaste.
Yeah, I've spent plenty of nights worshiping the porcelain gods.
I keep telling myself, "6 more months, then you're going to Japan. 6 more months..."
Slightly more on topic: I'm having a hard time staying excited for KOF XIII right now. Make no mistake, it looks amazing, but usually when I wanna build up anticipation for a sequel in a beloved franchise I play the previous entry in said series. I only ever borrowed XII from a friend and I have no one to play 2k2um with. Maybe it's just harder to actually go out and play because I'm a responsible adult now, but that always sounded disingenuous to me, like the jack-off who would say, "Of course you beat me at your game. I'm too busy talking to girls and driving stick shift cars and other assertions of stereotypical manhood." Much like how a sexual deviant will always find a way around the obstacles in their path to orgasm, a dedicated gamer will find the time to play his games.
ammit, I think there was probably a better place to put the last half of this post. Oh well. I'm too lazy to go hunt for a thread that would probably be kinda dead anyway.
