The "Pretend it's May 1999" thread reminded me of the most terribly cringeworthy fanboy emails I sent to IGN as an 11-year-old. A couple of minutes on the Internet Archive and I see that my idiocy has been preserved for posterity:

I honestly have no idea why I would say half that shit. I mean, I loved (and still love) Power Stone! Clearly the concept of ports from one console to another taking time was completely lost on me.

Oh dear lord that 2edgy4me "Pokemon Hater" suffix to my name... #-o ](*,)

Every time I see fanboy idiocy on the Internet, I cannot help but remember my own past and wince ever so slightly.

Such a dignified response from IGN, too.

I did get another slightly less embarrassing letter on their Xbox site a few years later as a 16-year-old:

Funny going through the Xbox IGN letters archive and seeing how often Shenmue III got brought up...

Well there you have it. The Israeli-Palestinian issue is basically just Xbox vs PlayStation, except the team deathmatches are cross-platform and apparently less fun.

My vote is for US. Come see it before *whatever political candidate you don't like* ruins the country.

^^My sister has been telling me about the political stuff going on in the U.S.. It sounds scary.. I wish the best for the US. Is it really that bad?

I wanted to visit NY again or maybe Florida. It would be nice to take the wife and kids to Disney. Or... I could just goto California and try to make it to E3 I would really love that.

Come to England. We have a pretty decent alternative to California and Disney World in Blackpool. Proper holiday destination that place pal!

Oh nice, I've been actually been wanting to visit England for the longest time I could remember. I want to try some good beer, good food, and see some nice sights. England has some pretty cool historical stuff at museums i'm very interested in. The kids are big on soccer nowadays, so maybe I could take them to a club game if not too expensive.

Scary isn't the right word, but the situation is pretty volatile.

Yes, its that bad Kenshin, probably worse. once 2017 hits, avoid here like the plague. Social media trends run everything, and everyone has to have something to get offended about and often become violent in public places in "protest", its really gotten out of hand here.

Hopefully everything turns out for the best guys. My sis asked me if I had extra space here in Yokohama because she was thinking about getting a job here, but push comes to shove I'll help her out if she decides to move to Japan.
