I love Ferris -- but the sister and the principle are in no way "bad guys" for sure, despite how the film makes them out to be.  But I feel it's important to look at another interpretation of the film:

I think the point of the film was also looking at how artificial society is and how we've built it up into something that's much too important and serious for its own good.  You must go to school, you must learn these arbitrary subjects, and you must do well in them to move on, you must be in a formal education system till the age of 16, and you must spend the next 30 years working.  The movie was about bending these hard social rules and just giving it up for a day and having fun for a day.  They wanted to make that snotty waiter eat his words and Ferris wanted Cam to just lighten up because he was so stuck in social alienation (between his parents, expectations, and unwillingness to relent to Farris' shenanigans).  The best point about this is made that Ferris decides to play hooky during the bust 9-5 workday when school is in, the stock market is going nuts, and everyone is working while Ferris and friends are just enjoying the day and making the most of it -- because lets face it, he could have done all that on a weekend.

The Principle was right to pursue Farris when he knew better than to think Ferris was really sick, and the sister was right for thinking that he's lofting and it wasn't fair to her who plays "the game of life" more seriously.  But Farris says that it's good to just stop and take a breather every once in a while.  Whether he's a sociopath is up to you, but he's apparently a nice guy to both the "jocks and the dweebs", but also, like Cam said, "if I wanted to stop you, I could have... not even the great Ferris can stop me" (or something like that).

Funny enough, that's my #1 line at work with the shitty training and with how well we're detailed on weekly-promos.

Since the day's over, I used my evil mod powers to change the header so people won't get confused.

Way to go, Fun Police!!!  Ah well, at least the important part still appears when it's summarized when looking at all of the board topics...mwahahaha

I didn't watch nuthin, but Ellen announced Pixar is finally making a sequel to one of its better titles: FINDING NEMO.

In 2015[!!] we'll finally see Finding Dori. :)

^ I like how they Japanese'd it up by making it a full minute-thirty.  I like how they US-sitcom'd it up by making it a series of clips to constitute the "opening"

Fun Fact for Star Trek TNG fans:  John de Lancie (aka; Q of the Q race) did a voice of a major villain, essentially sounding like Q.

ANYWAYS.  I'd like to thank General Zoi for their Pony Creator
and My Script Font for letting make my personal handwriting into a font that was in everypony's picture!

Mesh is an amazing MS Paint artist.... who says you need the $500 paint software to create art, they let you cheat in comparison to using MS Paint to do...all that.  I love your shading style mesh. (I'm so so sorry I didn't comment, I just posted that image and went to bed!!)

DIN!  I'd love to do one of you, and I echo Mesh's idea that you'd be a Zebra of endless potential haha

What the hell... why is it whenever *I* bring up going somewhere with forum peeps there's RADIO SILENCE.  Y'know what?!  ROT!!!

I plan on taking a big trip next year sometime. Scottieland is probably my top choice

Can I come?

Okay, next time you come over here you let me know and we will howl at the moon.

Will do. It will happen within the next 2 years. That's my goal right now. I <3 Scotland

We'll have the 5th annual RPGfan social there.

This is a snippet from Sankaku Complex... so validity may vary, but it kinda "fits" the dual-protagonist bit.

The developers admit their twin protagonist system is actually intended as much as a RPG market landgrab as it is an excuse to service female fans – they say playing the “slice-of-life” Escha scenario is intended for traditionalist fans who prefer their heroines mastering the intricacies of making bread in a cauldron and cutely venturing forth only to bop threatening fruit hamsters.
Meanwhile Logy’s saga focuses on a “world depicting scenario” intended for general RPG gamers and laden with weighty plot and events. Fiery battles and sharp dressing also appear to feature heavily.
GOD I hate that site's writing (the first sentence is no better than tabloid journalism) -- but if it's true -- I hope to hell we get this game. :(

I liked Miaka enough, when she wasn't "pining".  She is a sweet and sincere girl, and I adore her eating habits, she was pretty humourous too.  But often she blew up problems in her head like... the worst type of women.

Naw, I mean it.  I don't wanna say I'd be upset if I was excluded in some forum thing (especially with all the veterans that are on here that deserve....stupid pony-recognnition), but it would just be in the back of my mind.  SO a shout-out is the least I can do.  I'm more than happy to make you one... I guess it would look badass and I don't know what your cutie mark would be (I promise to *never* say this sentence again).

Everypony, I'm really blue... there were so many others I wish I could have made that I keep flipping through the site and seeing.  Aeolous.  Ygg.  Insert.  Faded.  Dagger.  Klyde.  Monsoon.  (Tunn).  Wild Armor.  Cyril.  Kev. PaleRob.  Took.  Fuck. How terrible.  This post is all for you guys (and I'd be happy to make one ESPECIALLY and EQUESTIALLY for you if you really wanted). D:
