Anime - Japanese Animation
Baka - Japanese word for idiot or fool
Loosely put an Anime Baka is someone who's crazy about Anime. However interpretation's may vary. I tend to think of Anime Baka as meaning something like drooling fan boy/girl.
Wrote this a long time ago. Too short for an article:
Perverted - Hentai in Japanese. But the word pervert means deviation from normal or accepted. So, how can all guys be perverts?
Did you ever notice that the sex scene in the movie is generally at about the same realative place as the guitar solo in a song?
2011-02-08 Granola Nazi
I've recently become aware of Granola Nazis. I don't think I've coined the phrase as a brief look online shows some others using it. I was searching for something I observed in real life and online. To me the essence of the whole Nazi thing is someone who is completely immersed in the concept of getting up into someone else's business. It's also someone who has the fanatical belief they have found "THE WAY". In short it's someone who knows what is wrong with someone else and is rather aggressive in announcing that bit of information or even attempting to force them to comply. Too me a lot of it has to do with the whole Glazing Over of the Eyes phenomenon.
Within the Renaissance Fair community there is something called a "Costume Nazi". This is a person who takes it upon themselves to police the flaws of clothing that other Ren Fair participants wear. Some of these even have an official position of of authority doing such a task.
The Granola Nazis are a people who's every bit of food are carefully scrutinized to the point of obsession. But this obsession does not end with their food, it simply does not end. Whatever diet they follow is "THE RIGHT WAY" and whatever someone else is doing might as well be eating out of a trough. These people preach at you with little or no provocation working their way into conversations that really are none of their business.
I've encountered their rage when I tell them it's not their business and I really don't want their advice (can it even be called advice? advice is kind not mean). On one such occasion I pointed out that it was rude for someone to insert themselves into a conversation that they were not invited to. This met with anger and more preaching. I then said that the person must have a strong desire to be heard and to please keep their personal issues to themselves. More anger. Finally I just said to go away. They finally did.
