 Dear friends, I would just like to say that I stopped
giving a f*****' d*** about those kinds of people and their biased views on things. Fine if they would listen,
but if they'll laugh at me or ignore me after I try introducing them to a better way of spending their time,
then I don't really care. What good will it do us to even
try convincing these people anyway?

 Pardon my rudeness, but I'm a friendless waif who's selfish and had experienced years of torment for being
an anime/tokusatsu fan... please bear with me.
