    I mean, why not? Many of the traditions we hold are inconsequencial to the way we live and have no moral bearing on the individuals who practice them. And on that note, humans come up with new traditions all the time. It's just something we do.

    This doesn't really surprise me at all. Millennials started to be born not too long after the low fat craze that also led to everything getting filled with sugars so the food wouldn't taste like garbage. Add that to an increasingly sedentary modern lifestyle and we have a perfect recipe for more obesity and all the related health problems.

    This week I've continued watching Endro~! and Shield Hero loving both of them with Shield Hero giving me a huge emotional rollercoaser and Endro~! continuing with it's heartwarming antics.

    On the manga side I finally read 177013 which was... something. Truly a soul crushing read that left me thinking long after I was done with it.

    And also on the novel side (we should include LNs and Japanese web novels in these threads imo) I read through the first volume of Infinite Dendrogram which was an absolute blast. It reminds me a lot Only Sense Online but a bit more serious and more plot driven as opposed to slice of life type antics.

    One thing I see that the article is ignoring is that if Apple took down Facebook or Messenger or anything else of the like there would be huge backlash by their customers who use those apps everyday. They'd likely lose a portion of their userbase and end up backpedaling on the decision before too long since fewer users=less money.
