if hannibal gets cancelled will the fandom eat itself?
No. We’ll eat everyone else. It’s how we’ll cope.
Okay, I’m just gonna say it out loud. There are times when going crazy looks attractive. And I’m not talking about becoming charmingly eccentric. I’ve already got that covered nine ways to Sunday. No, I’m talking about purposely emigrating to the land of lunacy. That special psychological zip code where The Ancient Laws of Behave Yourself no longer apply. My “reasoning” is simple. It takes a great deal of effort to sustain a conservative, trustworthy persona. Surrendering that effort would involve, from a Freudian perspective, a conscious dismantling of the super ego - that part of the psyche entrusted with enforcing parental and socially approved actions. And therein lies the allure of going full frontal wack-a-doodle. The constant energy required to pass as normal would suddenly become available for doing and saying whatever pleases me in the moment. Imagine it. The id and libido completely unbound by any and all moral or cultural restrictions. Hmm… Probably won’t need the shrink anymore… might need a lawyer.
I had thought many times about that too. Going completely crazy can sometimes be fun, and certainly, on it’s own distinct way, attractive. Going full retard is something you should not do. Everybody knows you never do a full retard. But going full lunatic is an entirely different deal. Just make sure you’ve got a good lawyer on hand.
This vanity card can be also commented as an alternatively to the “live in the moment” theory, or the fucking #YOLO thing. Maybe is this what Mr. Loree was writing about, but I prefer seeing under a different point of view.
Shepard: Look at that. Bits of Prothean tech sticking out of the ground like an old bone.
Garrus: So Liara, ever dug up - what do humans call it - a dinosaur?
Liara: No. Dinosaurs and other fossils would be paleontology. I’m an archaeologist. I study artifacts left by sapient species. The two fields are completely different. And… you were joking…?
Garrus: A bit. But at least you’re catching on these days.

That is interesting. Another example showing that games can allow public to engage in academic topics and promote scientific literacy.
