There's actually something in Breath of the Wild that explains why Link doesn't talk. If you go to Zelda's room in Hyrule Castle, you can find her diary. She asks Link why he rarely speaks, and it's because Link feels burdened by his role to protect Zelda and fight Calamity Ganon. Also, Shigeru Miyamoto created Link to be a character that is relatable to the player. Like you actually feel like you are going on an adventure. Which what the original Zelda game and Breath of the Wild did so well. But, a hill I would die on is Ocarina of Time is a little overrated. Also, Nightmare Before Christmas wasn't that good.

nightmares, I have the most commonly returning nightmare...so it's typically a forest scene and I strongly remember the smell of the damp wood, the rain and thunder, and the sound of something chasing me. I keep running and running, jumping over logs and sliding down temple run style and I remember every damn time, running into a tree, seeing two eyes as something gets closer and it's like...tall thin with a skull for a head it has antlers and just...ugh- it's like a wendigo

Its funny yall mention a "pee condom," cuz that is an actual, legit medical device. It's called a condom catheter. There are some cases where an indwelling catheter can't be used for a guy but he still needs a catheter, so they use a version that slips on like a slightly looser condom and just collects the urine that way. Of course, this is for adults and wouldn't do jack shit for a baby, but it's still funny that yall mention it as a joke when it is an actual thing. Its just anything but common knowledge. I only know because I'm a licensed nurse.

I had the same issue bob did. in Hawaii after my step mum and dad got married (hooray!!) we went to this little resturaunt, we took a shuttle and it was nice. we made reservations days in advance. we get there right and check in and they say "oh yeah just one second :)" and all these people are coming in and blah. an HOUR had passed, my father, papa and grandfather the whole set was getting mad. finally my dad gets aggressive (former PI) and papa (former police chief) go up and they're talking. I'm shrinking into my jacket- we finally force our way and get a table, we get drinks after 15 mins and we review the menu.........1 and 1/2 hours later- parents are getting mad as nobody has stopped by for refills, appetizer nothing. now suddenly someone pokes by, we finally get our order and another 1 1/2 goes by. it's now 8 and we were starving, getting mad all kinds of things. parents start to leave and we find out our food hasn't even been started- they start to apologize and offer refills but we just went "no, we're leaving" and like...god it was cold- and there we no Ubers so we had to walk to our hotel that was 30 min walk away- in heels and sandals- oh my god we ended up eating at the hotel in the little buffet area XD

if you rub your tongue on the roof of your mouth the sneeze will go away, it works for me every time. it's bc when you sneeze its your nasal system freaking out and the roof of your mouth is directly connected to it, so it kinda calms it down

kind of ironic that they voted vehemently on a smaller car because they feel like auto-dependency is an issue and people should walk, and then forgot that a big school wouldn't allow anyone to walk to it while they argued for/against them
