    Am I the only one who thinks that Elle King looks like Meghan Trainor and Meghan Trainor looks like Elle King?

    Am I the only one who thinks that Jack Russell (from Great White) sounds a lot like Robert Plant? The first time I heard "Rock Me" I would've sworn it was Plant solo.

    No, because you posted about that in the older thread twice. I know, because I replied both times that Elle King looks like Meghan Trainor and Amy Winehouse had a secret lovechild that they tried to abandon in a dumpster behind a tattoo parlor.

    Am I the only one who thinks Bob Dylan's voice sounds a little strange in "Lay Lady Lay"? Almost kind of like if Jim Nabors sang in his speaking voice when he had a cold - I don't recall hearing Bob Dylan's voice like that in any of his other songs.

    Am I the only who thinks Happy Tree Friends's art style looks kinda like Seth MacFarlane style? The whole show actually reminds me of something Seth MacFarlane would do. The style of humor, the animation, the fact that it looks a kid show but isn't. A lot of Seth's work looks like it very well could be kid friendly. Take Ted for example, you see the cute teddy bear and want to take your kids, until you find out that it is rated R. Not the mention the countless Family Guy cutaways that parody Sesame Street, Looney Tunes, The Flintstones, and plenty of other G-rated things. It just seems kind of McFarlane-esque to me (hey, I just came up with my own word by combining Seth MacFarlane's name with term pythonesque, is my word in the Urban Dictionary yet)?

    Am I the only one who likes both modern Spongebob and modern Family Guy? I know people who like modern Spongebob and people who like modern Family Guy, but I don't know anybody who likes both aside from me considering all the hate they both get on the Internet.

    I don't know about that, but I feel like the GoAnimate style looks a lot like his.

    But anyway, am I the only one who thinks 70s and 80s-era cars look really, really ugly? I'm not necessarily a big car buff or anything, but it seems to me like by the 70s and 80s, cars started losing the sleek and stylish appeal they had, say, in the 40s and 50s, and the only thing they retained is their humongous size (I mean, seriously, I can't understand how people drove around in those things, they look like they're a block long).

    Well of course there's always the fact that people prefer what's "hip" in that decade than from previous ones as a rule. (Though here in the 21st Century we've started to do less of that.) I'm sure in several years from now, people will look at the cars we drive and go, "What the heck is that??" :)

    Reminds me of that tiny car Sam the Eagle and Jean Pierre had to drive on Muppets Most Wanted.

    They're apparently rather popular in France, so that could explain it, lol.

    Am I the only one who shaves against the grain? I know they say you're supposed to shave with the grain, but I find the overall shave is closer and cleaner when you go against it. It's more uncomfortable though, so I often have to bury my face into a wet, hot washcloth (which you know I don't enjoy) to loosen the pores and soften whiskers to make the shave less uncomfortable.

    I shaved against the grain for the same reasons you do. But, you know what happened? I got ingrown hairs, thus making my face burn and get itchy.

    I get razor burns and shaving nicks quite often myself (but then again, I have really, really sensitive skin, even for a man), but I don't believe I've ever had a problem with ingrown hairs.

    Now, on the subject of ingrown nails (finger or toe), I seem to be prone to those quite often.

    Same here. I usually get an ingrown toenail at least twice a year. Unpleasant little pricks. :p

    With an electric razor it's a moot point.
    When I still used a straight razor, I tended to shave down (with the grain) then up (against it) just to get a close shave.
    Electric is better for me. No nicks either.

    Am I the only one who still listens to the songs "Gangnam Style", "Gentleman", and "What Does The Fox Say?" every once in a while.

    Am I the only who thinks Reince Priebus sounds like a Star Wars character name?

    Am I the only one who thinks that certain stock sound FX are way overused and need to die? The biggest one to me is that one group of angry cats, which is the Wilhelm Scream of animal sounds. From what I've heard, it was recorded about 30 years ago and was first used in DuckTales. I know not everyone can be Frank Welker or Clarence Nash and convincingly imitate just about any animal there is, but it can't be that hard to do a passable imitation of a screeching cat, can it?

    It sounds really petty and it doesn't hamper my enjoyment of anything that uses this sound, but it has irritated me enough in recent years for me to bring this up.
