So the re-translation screwed up what the weapon even was in the first place, and they could have called them "Ninja Cards" instead. But no, "Ninja Star", because fuck spending two minutes researching why they'd use "Trump" as a name for a weapon. That's not localization, that's just laziness.
Because I've scoured around, the Ninja's Trump isn't even named "Shinobi no Saigoshuriken" or "ninja taram-pu" in its originating material. It's named Fuma Shuriken in its original kanji, like the huge decapitating and dismembering tossable blender blades that they are usually depicted as in other works regarding ninjas. They could have easily just left the original name there or called it Master's Shuriken or Shinobi's Secret or Ninja's Secret or whatever. But no, don't make references to demons despite the Demon Axe being the ultimate axe weapon and that Fuma literally translates from its kanji to "Wind Demon".

I could tell this escapade was going on because Final Fantasy Type-0's ultimate weapons used the word Trump in them before the coming of the so called New Reich.

From the very first moment of the very first episode the guy comes off as a jackass.

It opens with a shot of the sky and he says "It's the sky! And I know what you're thinking, there's nothing up there, well WHAT DO YOU MEAN THERE'S NOTHING UP THERE!? THERE'S LOTS OF THINGS UP THERE!" in a really loud, obnoxious way.

The show was fascinating as a kid because all of the info was new to me, but as an adult and in the context of the present day, Bill Nye just comes off as a jackass.
I honestly liked Beakman's World better, it was sillier but still very informative. I dunno how to put it, it just felt more fun.

But the entire internet seemed to forget all about Beakman's World in favor of sucking off Bill Nye, because I guess Bill Nye is a colossal attention whore and Paul Zaloom's all but forgotten (though his Twitter with under 7,000 followers showcases that he's yet another Trump Derangement Syndrome guy).

Also apparently Mr. Wizard's grandson is one of the guys from a major Qanon group, looooooooooooooool

Let's be honest here, anyone in media is more likely to be afflicted with TDS than not.

I'm glad someone else remembers Beakman's World, though. The little "revival" episode on Captain Disillusion few years ago was a nice blast from the past:

They got a good girl to play the sidekick, too, which is good. Beakman needs a good sidekick, and the editing (particularly the sound editing) was on point.

I remember Beakman’s World, but I haven’t tried to rewatch that one yet unlike Bill Nye.

Being able to make art and post it online. Likely already said, but needed to be reiterated.

Unless you just tell them to fuck off, if you're an English speaking artist you're just expected to bend the knee lest they scree at you.

Draw the most obvious racial stereotype and watch them fucking fawn over it, then say "wow you fucking like the black basketball player? Sorry sweatie that's racist let's unpack all this toxicity" in the most sarcastic tone possible with text. The worst the bitches will do is cancel you, don't fucking worry about it and draw whatever the flying fuck you want.

Has this really happened to you personally in a meaningful way?

i dunno, i feel this gets exaggerated a lot, it would probably matter more if you are part of a plagued community yourself, like if you are making Steven Universe OCs and posting on tumblr with the same tags woketards use you are kinda asking for it but i don't really see it for someone just randomly posting their art online and suddenly getting an army of bluehairs with pitchforks, it would have to be something very specific and very mainstream that went viral somehow, like with the uzaki chan sperging, then again, i don't use twitter and always thought it was dumb for so many artists to migrate there but i still see a lot of porn and stereotypical characters or whatever doing just fine.

It's not as bad for smaller creators yeah.
This has happened to me personally, obviously can't share the details because this is the kiwifarms, but I agree on the plagued community bit. I was in a plagued community when it happened. It usually starts with an ask or something if it's tumblr. If you tell them to go fuck themselves you will get a wave of tumblr users telling u how horrible you are. After that nothing much, again, it's not as bad for smaller artists.

But people who make popular shit I feel so bad for them.

Shit taste. He may not hold up, but the show still does.

Never Change 2020 never Change :story:
The whole already wearing masks thing was mentioned above, but also, wouldn't most heroes be immune to the virus? Especially the likes of Deadpool, Wolverine, anyone else who can heal fast/is immortal/probably has a superpowered immune system so the virus would feel like nothing. Why would they stay inside anyway? Its not like supervillains would care that there are curfews/quarantines going on, if anything it would encourage more instances of them showing up due to the emergency services being crippled by it.
