    Xeno in Real Life

    Post by katimus_prime on Fri Dec 21, 2012 5:58 pm

    Do you ever run into something IRL that just reminds you of Xeno stuff?

    We had this topic on Godsibb and it was one of my faves.

    I pass by a Ridgeley Road every time I go to work. This may be a repeat, but we are starting over, so.

    I often drive past a Catholic private school named after Mary Magdalene, and it always reminds me of Xenosaga.

    I was speaking to Mr. Wilhelm the other day =) It was hard for me to keep a straight face

    Working in retail, I'll come across prices like 6.66, 6.67, and 6.69 (strangely enough, I don't see much of 6.68), and I will always think of the URTVs. Most people would see 6.66 and freak out, but it's the little redhead that springs to mind for me. XD

    There's a store called Fashion Bug and the F and A went out on the sign, so it just said SHION BUG for like a year.

    Whenever someone points out a wilhelm scream sound effect, I literally think of Wilhelm screaming.

    (Oddly enough, my distaste for Wilhelm and the Wilhelm Scream are completely independent of each other.) But gawd, they use the Wilhelm scream in everything ever.

    (I also think I'm the only person in the universe who looks at Captain America and immediately sees Cherenkov because of the haircut.)

    Glance, I always think of Wilhelm when I hear the Wilhelm scream too. (Or at least I used to. Now I just wonder  who texted me.)

    Spoiler:
    I think the karate Kevin scene at the end of XSIII would have been hilarious if they played that sound effect when Kevin chopped off Wilhelm's arm.

    I can't take that scene seriously anyway, because it just makes me think Star Wars, lol.

    I had never heard about the Wilhelm Scream before... but maybe you guys just doomed me to remember it too when I replay the game, lol

    Today, in my exam, they mentioned a scientist called Lynn Margulis \o/

    ^ That looks really interesting!

    I have this problem where every time Richard Epcar posts a tweet or a Facebook status, I imagine him reading it aloud in character as Ziggy.

    womp womp

    OK so this weekend my husband bought some bottled water at a gas station and I looked at it and almost did a spit take (or would have if I had any water in my mouth at the time, for comic effect) because:
