I grew up with this girl who was never super bright, but in high school one of my other friends told her they were going into engineering and she says "engineering? Like... Driving trains?"
I once got a shiny Arceus for a Yveltal.
That's not stupidity, that's someone who needs a Yveltal.
I hate it when people "uhm uhh uhm uh" so every other word is "uhm". I know a girl who does that and every single time I work with her I want to tell her to "shut the f*** up", but I don't because I'm a lady and I don't actually swear like that nor do I normally say rude things to people, but I certainly think it. It just makes her sound like she has no idea what she's talking about or that she's not confident in whatever she is portraying.
Anyways, she's a nice girl (maybe?). I just now feel compelled to say something nice about her, so there you go.
This person isn't stupid at all, but the idea they were telling me about was very stupid; the idea of "otherkin," or the identification of oneself with a particular species of animal or fictional creature on a deep, spiritual level, to the point where you actually consider yourself nonhuman. Think transgender, but you're actually an animal or fantasy creature on the inside, not a human. This identification is possible thanks to reincarnation, implying that you were perhaps a dog or a griffon in a past life, and have somehow become aware of it.
The person that was telling me this was doing so to make me aware of the discrimination these individuals face. I was assured that this was a "real thing" that these people felt.
The more I learn of these subcultures, the less I like human beings. >_>
