Damn, you're 6 hours ahead. I'm going to be going to sleep in another 40 minutes, while your day is just beginning. It's so weird how time zones work.

Not six, but five.

And I woke up at like 6PM yesterday, so I managed to stay up all night without being sleepy.

Imagine how hard it is for me to talk with my South Korean contact, then. At the time I'm waking up he's having dinner or about to go to bed.

Why do you have a South Korean contact?

Why are you talking to me right now even though I'm from a different country than yours? You've been on the internet for years now. Don't you have e-friends from other parts of the globe? That's a pretty strange question, man. It'd be like me asking you why you have black friends(if you have them, that is) or something.

I just find it strange since you made it seem like you knew him in real life. Yes we're interacting now from different countries but it's from a common interest (TMNT), or on a general forum. Your contact sounds like someone you just e-mail back and forth, I assume?

Ah no I don't know him in real life. I just first "met" him on another forum because we shared a lot of interests and then just began talking. It's not liek I met him while walking my dog or something.

Weird, I don't really talk to people online outside of forums and maybe some social media sites.

I can almost call some people I've met in forums/communities "friends", even having them on facebook and having their e-mails. Lots of people do that, actually. But I'm yet to meet someone form the internet irl since each and every online contact I have is from a different country.

Well yes lots of people have internet friends, but it's hard to call them "real friends" if you don't meet them in person. Or at least that's how I feel.

Oh absolutely. But I've shared so many things with some of them and they've also shared so much stuff with me that it's kinda hard not to consider them as friends or borderline such. As in, if we happened to ever meet irl, I'm sure I'd become full fledged friends with them. It's funny when you think about it with some people on the internet knowing more about you than people you know irl do. It's easier to be more open online than face-to-face.

It's also because it's easier to have a conversation of one thing in particular, whereas in real life people constantly change subjects or do things while speaking. Online you just read text.

Oh definitely. Plus I'm not a very good speaker overall nor am I a very chatty person. It's a lot easier for me to articulate my thoughts through text. I definitely am a much better writer than a speaker.

Yep. You know it's pretty funny that when people wake up tomorrow and click this thread for the first time they'd expect to see a lengthy discussion of Season 2 of TMNT, whereas the last bunch of posts are just us talking about random stuff.

It's weird how easily we drifted off topic. We're still the only two people to post in this entire thread.

LMAO yeah. It's funny how things turn out at times, isn't it? Then again I made this thread pretty late at night when not so many people were online. I didn't expect replies until tomorrow.

Yeah, I'm going to sleep in 10 minutes myself. I guess making a thread this late at night will lead to dead time.

The Punk Frogs could have been interesting. They were shown to be pretty nice but since they were called the Punk Frogs and trained by Shredder, I always thought perhaps it'd be better if they were good guys like the turtles but rougher around the edges and be more aggressive so they can be somewhat opposite to the turtles. Kind of like a team of Casey Jones' but not as crazy and to have distinctive personalities

I often wondered if they were planning to end Shredder and Krang. I mean they were sunk in lava, and it kind of heavily implied they were killed right there. Kind of makes me wonder how the turtles can just bust in when even lava can't melt through the technodrome

Shredder acted a little more like a high ranking minion with Krang in the background like Dr. Claw, telling Shredder what to do. In the later seasons they acted a little more like partners but back then Shredder was taking orders from Krang. But it would make more sense since Krang is more intelligent, more powerful owns the techndrome as well as more territory, comes up with the most plans and has a more powerful army at his disposal.

Frances Moss was in charge of the writing back then. I don't think they were really thinking about massive arcs.

Since TMNT is supposed to be a parody the 80s cartoon works fine.

I always wondered how there was electricity down in the sewers.

Honestly Season 2 in my opinion was very strong. There were a couple of weak episodes but for the most part most of the 13 from that season were pretty good. No complaints here.
