    Hmm...I would imagine two things:

    - Some flashy guy in a shining disco suit and shiny silver/diamond bling with a toy sword in his hand fighting/whacking an inflatable dragon at some kid theme park to 'save' his anime waifu body pillow, while yelling out various Naruto quotes over and over. (Idk either...)

    - A guy who literally is a knight in shining armor...in an online MMORPG game. With ridiculously overpowered weapons.

    Don't take offense to this, but I have no idea what these things you speak of are.

    Is someone killing an inflatable dragon, or pillow?

    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    You can teach them to spit on people you don't like.... it'll be fun...they'll never know your adorable little pet was part of your evil plan.

    Apparently, alpacas will get along with cows, but alpacas are susceptible to parasites found in cow dung.

    Seriously.

    Who wouldn't want a lifetime supply of homegrown sweaters?

    Just don't let Tommy be the one to buy you that alpaca or it's going to wind up on the grill.

But I tend to deflect, perhaps feeling as though I'm a distraction from what's really important.

    I'd rather help the traveler on the road than the princess in the castle... if that makes sense.
    This was a great answer, too -- The Silent (Anonymous) Knight.

    In many ways, Clark Kent was always much more attractive to me than The Man of Steel, because I can't relate much to Superman, but I know what it feels like to be the nerdy version of Clark.

    Clark didn't need other people to acknowledge who he was in order for him to know who he was by himself.

    Are we talking about the Smallville season 10 version, where Clark deliberately makes himself nerdy as a "hiding in plain sight" disguise?

    I watched all ten seasons in less than a year. Yes I'm a nerd. And he found out what I've been thinking for years, that sometimes it's downright handy to be underestimated.

    You're right, people tend to underestimate my analytical skills, but they're only almost right.

    Basically, they think I'm crazy, but the truth is I'm only half crazy.

    I am totally old school.

    Although I know a few tidbits about Smallville, I never got into it. (Watching Clark and Lex as best friends who turn into enemies would have broken my heart. )

    The only "real-life" reference I have for Superman would be Christopher Reeve, whom I will always see a the One and Only Superman.

    I've seen most of the renditions since--Brandon Routh, Henry Caville... But to me, no one else embodied the character more than Mr. Reeves.

    I don't want to sound like the jaded old lady of the forum, but I'm going to anyway.

    When I see things like this, I'm not thinking, "Oh, what a cute kid's toy."

    I'm thinking of all the 50-year-old men who buy these things and say it's for their "daughter"--but they don't have any children.
