1. It contradicts the stereotype that all bronies are obese, sedentary, and have no jobs.
But at the same time:
2. It also means that the U.S. government is hiring men who watch that show to kill the world's most dangerous terrorists.

|I had a girl delete me; the only way that she and I were connected was that she was dating one of my friends a while ago. They broke up, and one of them must have deleted the other on FB. Then she deleted me. We had nothing else tying us together, no other mutual friends or anything. I never had her number and was never particularly close to her, but I did talk to her a few times and thought we got along just fine. But apparently, she no longer wants to be friends with me because of something that had gone on between her and somebody else. Does that make sense to anybody else?|

Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum (2007/2009)
Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver (2010)
Pokemon Black/White (2011)
Pokemon Black 2/White 2 (2012)
Pokemon Red And Blue were already popular and still are, but Pokémon Gold and Silver are still claimed by fans as the best Pokémon games ever, chiefly due to the staggering amount of cool new features it introduced. Pokemon Ruby And Sapphire were even criticized for getting rid of several of those features.
Thus making Pokemon Diamond And Pearl even better sequels to R/S/E because they brought back many of the features in G/S/C, as well as adding online multiplayer and improving the way moves drew upon attacking stats.
When they announced that they were remaking the first-generation games for the modern system, it was a Base Breaker. When they announced that they were doing it again with the second-generation games, the fandom celebrated. Of course, the rather infamous fact that the batteries of the original G/S/C games have been known to die out and prevent game-saving has something to do with that too.
Pokemon Black And White (and it's sequel) have also been getting a lot of praise, finally changing the formula a bit by having only new Pokémon until you beat the game and a much more fleshed out plot. It can be said that HeartGold / SoulSilver, Black / White, and Black 2 / White 2 form a trio of modern-era Pokémon games released in the same timespan that are regarded as some of the best games in the series, receiving less flak and far more unanimous praise from reviewers and fans than previous games after Generation II.

There was no need to do that; he could have stalled for a while until she died.

She would survive and know exactly who's been committing the murders, as well as how he's doing it. Is this necessarily correct? And if not, why did Light risk it when he seems to be planning everything else so meticulously?|
