  • Your political theory is wrong. Tulsi is a Dino kinda how Romney is a rino. Scott supports Republicans nothing wrong with that half the country is the same. But to go after people for there political views is crazy. We gave two parties and majority of Americans want us to have one hows that any better then the CCP

  • Can we all just agree that Matpat's view on American Politics was spot on? I've actually been thinking this for quite a while ever since I learned more about the subject. As a wise Jedi Knight once said, "Only a Sith deals in absolutes."

  • Just because people support someone who has different visions than you doesn't and shouldn't affect your relationship politics are just poison it tears people apart it matters on how the person views you rather than their political parties view on you

  • Theory time. Girlfriend watches new grounds and fell in love with the characters and used her demon powers to put them into existence and boyfriend fell in love with her. Her parents were mad at her for doing this and challenged boyfriend to a music competition and lost. They then summoned Pico to kill boyfriend. Then they tried to beat him again and failed. They started respecting boyfriend’s singing but still tried to kill him.

  • That Giovanni is Ash father give so much sense, Jessie and James are there to take care of him, the are Team rockets Strongest team, if you have see them in in Unova you see how powerful Jessie and James are, if I remember right the stole top secret files found top security facilities and deferend itims and I think broke in a took over a jail and really steal a pokemon Giovani wanted frome ash and his friends. And it right that Giovanni meet ask in Unova, but he dont let him speak his name Giovanni just defeat him in like 3 seconds, and Ask mom say that he's dad is a great trainer Giovanni is EXSTRAMELY strong, and are a gym leder to (to also be the boss of Team Rocket) Giovanni take also a report for what the have done, and maybe in the report Jessie and James tell him about Ash's progress as a pokemon trainer. Nodes, this is just what I think I want to hear more opinions write down some Therorys and what you thinking in the comments down please :D

  • Bad Austin - you pulled a sneaky. You assumed that the pig's size was standard and that Redbird could therefore be sized compared to the pig's static size. That be an assumption. Why is the pig not just abnormally small, shrinking it to approximately the size of a Redbird (which is almost certainly a cardinal)?

  • I think sonic is going to win. When you talked about club swinging, what about the werehog in sonic unleashed. You always use sonic's arms to swing into and beat up enemies,so would that be considered club swinging or not?

  • The absolute madness of this lad; he starts out inadvertently ruining childhoods by uncovering the dark lore of video games, goes on to make a career out of that while almost single handedly remaking the entire system for the greater good. Can we just acknowledge the legend that has become MatPat for a moment.

  • Austin... just freeze the ostrich. I mean, in the game, the birds are alive and all, so that’d be out the window. However, to replicate (as close as possible) the results, if the bird was deceased, then bound into a compressed mass, frozen, THEN fired at the pig... it would act more like a traditional projectile, right?
