Is it just me?

Is it just me, or is Homestar hitting some inappropreate stuff here?? - C.Olimar788

I think that's the point. They're teaching how to NOT behave inappropriately. Or trying, anyway. --DorianGray
I think the cap has a point. "Getting teen pregnant" stuck right out to me too. While the site has numerous innuendos (for instance: "cold ones", "dry t-shirt contests", the poopsmith and his mysterious trade) they've gone to pretty great lengths to avoid directly referencing anything offensive or controversial, even poop. Seems like referring to pregnancy directly is overstepping that line. Watch now as someone jumps out to say something extreme about censorship.
Uh, "get teen pregnant" doesn't make much sense on its own. Also, Reyanold is a boy.
Well, on the other hand, I don't see anything wrong with the word "pregnant" in and of itself. I mean, it's not like they described it elaborately or anything. There's really no big deal. --Bluelite

Eh, I was thinking the same thing. *sigh* I hope they don't go downhill like some other flash movies I used to like. It's not that bad, but I'd say still there's rough spots. --MrsCommanderson 23:06, 13 Sep 2005 (UTC)

When did anything happen that was offensive with the poopsmith?---Strongglad

Well maybe Homestar is hitting on some inappropreate stuff, but hey that's the way the world's going nowadays. I mean they're using the word 'sexy' in kid's shows now. The times are a-changing The Pardack

*Has half a mind to try e-Mailing the Brothers Chaps* - C.Olimar788

I personally think the reference in this toon is rather benign, but if you feel strongly about emailing your opinion to the Chaps, then, by all means, do it! They'll never know what their viewers think without any feedback from you. — It's dot com 00:23, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Just a few days ago I was doing my daily web surfing and I came upon Tvtome/Tv and looked up my favirote cartoon One Piece. There was a fourm and I looked at it, it was about what on a cartoon they said on One pice it was a very mild bad word, crap or freaking is worse then the word they used, but then this other guy said they had a very bad cuss word on another show/Shamain King if you've ever heard of it he could've lying then again you never know. I see the future times being bad for the children. Bassium!

I know, man. There's this little 7-or-so year old kid who lives nearby who's seen The Matrix, and has no problem with all the bad words and stuff. Heck, there was a certain children's Bible video that blantantly referenced the Matrix by name! {shakes head} C'mon guys, the Matrix is a good movie and all, but it is rated R for a reason. - Joshua
I think the Matrix is a bad/evil movie anyways, I'm sure its not meant to be evil in someways like most everything in this world something good will eventually have to become bad, I wished my opinion mattered but it doesen't in the real world, I might be stupid but I do have morals. The sad thing is, my cousin couldn't go see Meet the Parents and he was fifth teen but he could go see Chainsaw Masacer, I mean come on! If only the little man did matter. Bassium!

Uhhh...

Is it just me or are the shorts getting longer than the toons? --Danny 22:17, 13 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Recent talk has been that the difference between shorts and toons is not length, but the content and story. See talk here small_logo.pngUsername-talk 22:24, 13 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Pizza In The Background

Did anyone catch what the message board in the background of the Blue Laser hideout Easter egg said? It said something about pizza, but I can't read it. Anyone have a suggestion? --Bluelite

I think it was something like 'Operation: Dress as Pizza'. I looked, but it was a bit obscured by the characters. Maybe someone with one of those fancy decompilers can tell us. --DorianGray

Decomplier'd! "OPERATION DRESS UP AS PIZZA!!" - Joshua

Thanks. That would've bothered me a lot. --Bluelite

Antioxidants

The antioxidants explanation is just dumb. We're not advised to eat foods with antioxidants in them for the prevention of acne. Anti-oxidants prevent oxidation; having these chemicals in the body and are thought to prevent cancer and stave of the visible signs of aging. They may be used in over the counter acne medicine, but they aren't doing anthying in them. Anti-acne medicine works through cleansing/astringent properties. Prescription anti-acne medicine is antibiotics. There is absilutely no evidence that topical application of antioxidants has any effect at all. Eplaining antioxidants as acne preventers is really bizzare, and I don't understand why it got changed back. At least the link to antioxidants still goes to wikipedia, not some skin care product propaganda page like it used to.

  • Ah, I was just going to note that. I don't see what acne has to do with it at all, and it's not even mentioned on the Wikipedia article. The cosmetics industry like putting random 'healthy-sounding' chemicals in products without any active effect, such as amino acids in shampoo. Antioxidants are not going to kill bacteria. I don't quite know what to do with the fact though - not sure how to summarise antioxidants without needlessly going into detail. -- Mithent 00:47, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I removed the content in question and changed it to something more straightforward. — It's dot com 01:20, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)
