I shall take the opposition.

Shini is indeed not a very angry person. He is angry on a very average level, to the point that he only resorts to physical violence among friends, and only when someone does something to provoke him, such as play a team in King of Fighters entirely comprised of throw characters. For instance, I have not once seen him, or seen evidence that he does, strike a child--and as can reasonably be attested, children test the limits of temper more frequently and more competently than most any other source known.

It's covered with eyes and it sweats constantly. The sweat runs into those eyes and makes them sting. It has no mouth, Laney, no genitals, and can only express its mute extremes of murderous rage and infantile desire by changing the channels on a universal remote. Or by voting in presidential elections."

At what price fury, eh?

True anger is meant to surpass risk/reward analysis, sir. Or has there been pioneering in the field since my collegiate days; is it common procedure to have an Anger Portfolio?

Well, anger does come in many different flavors. While most people tend to specialize in a couple different kinds of anger, I suppose it wouldn't be unheard of to find someone so dedicated to diversity in forms of expressing their rage that a portfolio would be warranted. You're much more likely to find a connoisseur with an anthology of exemplary expressions of rage throughout history.

Ah, but I think I may have strayed a little off-topic; discussing rage in general as opposed to Shini's specific breed.

I always saw Shini's rage as being more sundried-tomato flavored.

Seconded. Sun-dried tomato.

I HATE SUN-DRIED TOMATOES.

Sun-dried tomatos are much like regular tomatoes in that they can be great as a flavoring or ingredient, but they are terrible by themselves. In much the same way, Shini's anger, in social situations, is an integral part of the group dynamic. However, when focused on an individual, it becomes more abrasive and less endearing.

We need some sort of beef anger, possibly with parsley rage to make it look nice. All as part of a three-course mood shift, mind you.

I've never been sure what to make of that guy. On the one hand, it's kind of funny in a juvenile ridiculous outrageous only-in-Japan kind of way. On the other hand, it's almost as offensive as a white guy in blackface putting on a minstrel show. Which is pretty offensive.

It's like watching a living incarnation of YouTube's understanding of gay culture. Only not quite as bad. Not quite.

People, please get back on track.

I think you like to provoke, Shini. Not sure if that makes you an angry person. But if it does, we're here for you, sweetheart. :(

I see what you did there.

So, what, he's like Don Flamenco? I'm not sure that's entirely accurate. Amusing, certainly, but not necessarily accurate.
