    As somebody who has been into fandom and shipping since about 2007, if you're sending real people hate about their real life relationships, you're a piece of shit. Ship whatever you want, just don't shove anything into people who are related to the show, book, tv show, podcast, etc's faces.

    To all the health-conscious drinkers out there, Guinness is actually one of the lowest calorie non-light beers out there. Unfortunately, that's due to it having less alcohol by volume, so there is a trade off.

    Relating to the box of issues question, it does seem like there is a mentality now-a-days that abstinence is bad. Or that the only people who choose to be abstinent are religious. Which isn't the case, much like how having sex doesn't make you a bad person or make you not religious because you have sex. I think the biggest thing about relationships is that something that works for one couple doesn't mean it will work for another couple. Abstinence doesn't work for everyone and sex before marriage (or at all) doesn't work for everyone. There are many ways two people can connect and love and that understanding and compatibility is what it should boil down to. So you do what you think is best for you. That way your choices will lead you to someone who respects you and what you've decided. But don't beat yourself up if what's best for you changes (not that I'm assuming that you will, but like Blaine that's what happened to me). And don't hold it against someone else for realizing what they need is different (something else I experienced when I started becoming more open about my sexual life). So I guess TL;DR 1.) respect and listen to yourself 2.) respect and listen to others.

    I'm seeing a lot of comments from people who have never heard of shipping and they definitely jumped right into it in this episode without really explaining it, so I'm gonna do my best to cover that ground. 

    "Ship" is short for "Relationship". To ship something is wishing for two or more persons to be in a relationship together. Most of the time it's referred to in a romantic or sexual way, but friendships can be shipped too.
    Why Ship?
    Basically, it stems from a desire to see two characters interacting more. Maybe these characters have personalities that mesh well, or maybe they have personalities that intrigue you and you find it inspiring to think about what a relationship between them would be like. Maybe you just like the character designs and want to mash them together. Whatever the cause, seeing these characters together just makes you happy. 

    This might be the key to when things start to go too far. Your happiness should not rely solely on characters or persons that are out of your control, and when the validity of a "ship" is threatened, your happiness feels threatened too.
    I do not think there is anything inherently wrong with shipping, be it fictional characters or real people. At its core it is just about being creative and having fun with personality dynamics, which can be done in a respectful manner. It becomes a problem when people define themselves by it. It becomes a problem when internet personalities are dehumanized into "characters". A fictional pairing can be fun, but it should not become your reality.

    To the kid that's staying abstinent: Do you. However, don't make marriage what you wait for. Wait for the correct person. In my honest opinion if you wait too long, you're just crippling yourself. Sex is beautiful and fun, but only if you can communicate with the person. Your first time is not going to be great. There's a learning curve and the more you're able to explore yourself and others, the better you'll get and the more awesome sexual experiences you'll have. Waiting for marriage is like intentionally giving yourself a handicap, and honestly dumb because you should never marry someone without knowing if you're sexually compatible.

    Well, thanks guys. I hate all of you now. Saying Wendy's is "Alright." Go fuck yourselves. Wendy's is the best fast food restaurant in the nation, better than your garbage Sonic bullshit. I've been a First member for over a year now, and I'm gonna end it because you folks dissed my favorite food chain. Well done, way to alienate your audience.

      I remember in high school hearing people say things along the line of  "ugh just ship it already" to two friends that are obviously both attracted to each other. But I don't know what the hell this is all about.

      "ship" short for "relationship" as in, "I want these people to be in a relationship". Most of the time it's referred to in a romantic or sexual way, but shipping friendships and "broships" are a thing too.

    i didn't wait to do anything and im happy about it. you hear a lot that people regret having sex or drinking at a young age. im fine with it. i liked it. i had some fun experience. really used my youth to my advantage. and i have stories to tell. its people should preobably wait longer then i did to do certain things,(or not do certain things i did in general...like illegal stuff) but if you do take it in stride. just don't kill people.

    In response to the Box of Issues question: I had some friends that started dating in the 8th grade and had both decided to be abstinent until marriage but when they were seniors in high school they tried having sex. Afterward, they realized that they both didn't feel right breaking their vow. So they continued their abstinence until they got married (which was a couple years ago now) and are still very happy together after over 8 years! Their story just shows that even if you slip up you shouldn't feel bad about it and you can always try and realize whether it is or isn't for you.

    It should also be said, if you find yourself getting angry at people for "ruining" ships in real life, maybe seek help?  I'm as for escapist entertainment as anyone, but if you're having a hard time distinguishing between fantasy and reality, you should really think about seeing a therapist.  I'm not trying to belittle anyone here or call them crazy; it just seems like something that could develop into much deeper problems later on.

    Lots of people wait till marriage to have sex, and it often turns out to be just fine.  There are a lot of cues as to whether you have sexual chemistry without actually having sex.  That being said, I didn't wait myself.  But it's a valid choice, if it's what you really want.

    Coming from an asexual who doesn't really plan on ever having sex I think if you're gonna decide to have sex at some point and you want it to be good sex, committing to someone for life without knowing is a pretty big gamble. I think the whole "sex after marriage only" thing is based on the social stigma that sex is something "bad" or "shameful" and if you sleep with more than one person or don't wait until marriage you're considered a slut. You're not a bad person if you have sex before marriage and you're not a better person for waiting.

    My husband and I didn't live together until we got married (out of respect for his parents and his upbringing, he comes from a very conservative background where we weren't even supposed to have sex before marriage or have sleepovers but we kinda broke those two, oops) and in some ways it has been a huge learning curve as I was his first and only relationship and has been somewhat babied by his mum his whole life where as I have been in relationships before and have lived out of home so in many areas we've clashed but have learned to either compromise or let him have some things his way and some things my way. I'd say while having some sort of idea of how you would live together can be important it definitely isnt crucial for a long term relationship or a pre-marriage requisite. Same goes for sex in my opinion.

    In response to the shipping of real people and fan's perceptions of the person, I think about something Michael Jones said in an old RT life from 2013, where he said something along the lines of "whatever you see or whatever you think you know of me, you only see a small amount of me. You don't see 80% of my life." I always keep that in mind when watching RT content, because the people in front of the camera are just people. I'm a serious fan, but honestly I don't "know" any of the actors/personalities at Rooster Teeth more than what they show us. Anyway, live and let live, ya know?

    Just my 0.02 on the whole drinking game at the beginning: The graphic doesn't really fit in imo, just use the same graphic you guys use for the game with the rapid fire questions or the box of issues full screen text graphic. Also get rid of the drinking game part. Idk why but the split second of drinking is just kinda unnecessary and awkward. Just talk like you guys normally would about who pointed at who and why.


    Sorry if this is super critical but I figured you guys may appreciate some feedback. :)

    I think the worst RT ship/fake relationship is Ryan and Meg. Some people just think that because they used to work together and now spend a lot of time streaming together they must be a thing.  From what I know Ryans wife is beautiful, and I can not see Meg cheating on Gavin with Ryan. Ryan is not a bad looking guy but, with all Meg had to do to meet Gavin and get him to date her. She would not cheat on him with a married co worker of Gavins.I personally hate shipping. I have people I think would go great together, but I am happy if they have someone they are happy with. And most shipping is strange or very unlikely.
