    As a kid this blew my mind, I was like WTF is he doing. He can't just give up! He's Goku! >__>

    Remember when Goku just gave up?

    Yes. I remember when he gave up as a dad.

    I swear, Gohan has to be subconsciously pissed at Goten for having a dad when he's growing up.
    Irregardless, for all intensive purposes, I could care less.
    Goku supported child abuse by not actually trying to keep his son safe, Gohan was powerful but the way Goku just throws him to the wolves even pissed pff Piccolo who one can argue is more of a father to Gohan then Goku..

    I don't think Gohan's too mad. He did have a father figure in his life after all, by the name of Piccolo. He even chose to wear his clothes instead of Goku's. <__<

    I feel like that was supposed to be his final fight scene because it showed that he’d finally grown the tiniest bit as a character by not needing to fight every strong opponent he lays eyes on and instead passing the torch.

    They walked that waaaaaayyyy back since then though, which makes that scene feel goofy in retrospect, especially because the guy he passed the torch to turned out to not like fighting.
    It’s also s***ty with how he decides to “stay dead” instead of returning to be a husband and father but being a deadbeat dad is his thing. Even cold and distant Vegeta becomes a better father just by staying in his family’s life instead of leaving post cell

    Yeah, I heard Gohan was supposed to be the focal character after this point but fans complained or something. I can't confirm this though.

    That was kind of selfish of him, yeah.

    He remained so by choice.

    I also remember him healing Cell and handing his son over to him for an ass whooping. Don't give me that, "believed in him" s***, he allowed Gohan to experience physical and emotional trauma all for the sake of having him unlock his true power.

    You dare challenge probabilitizzle? Don't step to the wizard, 'cause the wizard don't play nice.
    Remember when he had the choice of rescuing his own son, or rescuin Mr Satan and leaving his son to die, and Goku chose Satan?

    I also remember that Piccolo coerced him into teaming up against Cell until Gohan stopped them.

    Tom Hanks Deletes Tweets

    MrMallard

    Here we go. People were already yelling about Tom Hanks moving to Greece earlier this year, and now people are posting tweet figures like they were doing with Chrissy Teigen.

    If news comes out that implicates Tom Hanks in pedophile shit, then I'll gladly eat crow. But this qanon conspiracy shit keeps getting wilder and wilder, to the point of bad-faith instigators actively making shit up to make their targets look guilty in the eyes of the conspiracy theory.

    I would like to take this shit at face value, but qanon dipshits have been questioning Tom Hanks for months now and this just feels like those crazy fuckheads surfacing a bunch of bullshit to sway public opinion during a time of crisis. Making Tom Hanks a target gives these qanon dipshits something to rally against and keep the movement lively.

    But again - I could easily be wrong, and in the event of a trusted source giving this idea legitimacy, I would be open to changing my mind. But I find it extremely hard to view any qanon-related shit in good faith after the absurd claims they've been making for years. When there's rumblings that this is true from a source I respect and trust, I'll consider reconsidering my stance.

    For now, as much as I would like to give this news the benefit of the doubt, I can't find it in myself to give this the weight it deserves considering the machinations behind accusations of this nature from the recent past.
