Keep your ridiculous temperatures and murder-insects away from me.  :argh


I actually found a giant jumping spider crawling across my floor just an hour ago. Seriously the thing was the size of my thumb, made me jump wondering where the fuck it came from before I swiftly squashed it and threw it in the bin.

It's like someone flipped a switch and BOOM now it's spring. And I'm prety happy about it, the cold can't end soon enough.
Give me your 16 degrees and you can have my 50.

16 degrees in mid February... this isn't England.  :face-normal

What I'd love to see is the comeback of Gohan from the cell games. He had his insecure father moment for 78 episodes already, time to get serious. I mean the stakes will be so high soon, if that's not enough to piss him off, I don't know what is.

Well, aside from the fact this is an exhibition match, that pattern exists for anime to show off all characters, techniques, rounds and everything. It's common practice.

Yeah, that was my point. Starfish objected that Goku losing wouldn't be original for Super, and I agree, but what would be original is to subvert the kind of pattern one would expect from this competition, that otherwise seems like a very run-of-the-mill sort of showcase like the one you mention.

Well, it's not like he can't be brought back...
I'll be honest. I forgot that was a possibility. ^_^;

You got a point for Super, but I was thinking more of the 'tournament' pattern as a general thing. Win-Loss-Win is a typical pattern to create a slight sense of raised stakes followed by a payoff, is all. Not just in Dragonball.

How is Goku losing an unusual outcome? I mean let's look at his track record in this series so far...

-Beerus: Lost. Twice.
-Freeza: Well he technically killed Freeza but only after he had technically witnessed him win. And it was really Vegeta who actually defeated him in battle.
-Botamo or whatever his name was: Won.
-Hit: Threw the match.
-Zamasu: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA let us never speak of that again.

...So strictly speaking, he's been on a fairly consistent losing streak throughout this entire series. At least for all the fights that actually count-- He has beaten some minor foes I guess.

The most original outcome would be Gohan wins, and then Goku loses, of all things. A darker possibility is Gohan wins, Zen-Oh gets bored by the Universe 9 fighters' incompetence, ends the Exhibition match and destroys their universe. At which point everyone is speechless and goes back home to train for the Tournament of Power.
