There are actually a lot of people that would want to be airline pilots and are banned from doing so.
You need both perfect vision and have good enough grade to get into the 4 or 5 years long pilot training program.
I had a friend back in high school who knew his dream of being a pilot would never be just because he needed glasses.

I know a transport driver that plays Euro Truck sim. And that's all I have to say about that. I also did a full length flight in FS2000 the first time I was going to meet my now-spouse (meeting on the internet's not just for losers because I did it!). Now that I've said that I wonder if it makes me come off as really weird..

Well, the internets a big place. I can live with people meeting on ICQ, but there's a few places that would raise my eyebrows for people meeting and falling in love;

I like the place where you can hire girls to sleep with. Really, sleep with. And you pay extra for choosing which girl, or how long, etc.
the prices are fucking insane.

It sounds like some kind of non-sexual prostitution. Weird, in a slightly good way, perhaps? Can see it being a nice thing for lonely people without necessarily exploiting the workers quite as much. I dunno...

The new animation from 2010 started off as being genuinely very good. This is primarily because it was driven by a previous director of the Powerpuff Girls. If you want a really fast lesson in how to create an animation with female leads intended for an audience of girls then you cannot do much better than the Powerpuff Girls. Witty, fast paced and lacking the gender baggage that weighs down the majority of US animation. MLP follows in that vein but is also sentimental-in-the-right-ways.
Although I never became much of a fan I can understand why the series has followers who are so very much in love with it. It triggers all the right buttons for that.
At the end of the day the resulting phenomenon of bronies; young men who've watched the series on the internet and have become avid fans, is no bad thing. As for what is driving it, if I put my feminist theory hat on, I would suggest it's a symptom of a disillusionment in traditional masculine narratives sold to teenage boys which, just like traditional notions of femininity, fail young people in a myriad of ways. Being a fan of a very funny, very well written, loveable cartoon that is ostensibly 'for girls' but comes with very little in the way of gendered structuring amongst an internet-based community is a safe way of working through that.Originally Posted by CROCONOUGHTKEY

Ahh ok, I didn't know anyone connected with Powerpuff Girls was behind it! Simply saying that makes me understand it a lot more because PPG was one of the few cartoons of that generation that I could stand (and I was a hard-core Bubbles fan). That actually makes me want to perhaps give it a try...if I can get over the fact that my mom gave away all my MLP INCLUDING MY FOUR LEAF CLOVER ONE THAT IS APPARENTLY SUPER RARE AND WORTH LOTS OF MONIES!

That's actually quite interesting. I had no idea the show had that Powerpuff Girls connection either. Previously just assumed it was a case of ironic statement turning into genuine appreciation, gone all out of control over the internet and becoming a genuine subculture, with all the appeal that comes with that. Have a bit more respect for the whole thing now if the show was actually good!
