Freddie Mercury with and without his moustache, and with long and short hair somehow look like two different people.

Also Charlie Chaplin with and without his 'stache also look quite different.

What do you look for in a friend?

I’ve kept my eye on this question for awhile now and I’m really surprised that so few people have answered it seriously. Then again, I’m a bit stumped by how to answer it myself. At 25, in my case, friendships either just happen or they don’t. After a certain age, shared interests isn’t enough to create a friendship; however, it can serve to maintain old ones.

Most friends I have I made around 5 years ago or further back. Not every single one, but most. I don’t go out much so I rely on people I already trust; but some of those relationships have grown stronger over the years, so it’s not a bad thing.

Proximity became a real thing in my early twenties. My first roommate out of college, who I don’t see or talk to often enough, has become someone I really trust. Low-maintenance friendships are pretty great that way–I might not be communicating with this person every day, but I trust them more than some people I talk to far more often. Shared experiences matter a lot, hence proximity mattering.

Can’t guarantee this is the sort of answer you were looking for but I wanted to contribute. It’s a hard question to answer and worth discussing.

In my defense, I’ve never had a close friend, and no casual friends since high school, so it’s not a question I could seriously answer.

I like fajitas. If you want to know more just ask.

Do you really like them, or do you just like the attention you get when you order them and the loud sizzling makes sure everyone in the restaurant has to pay attention to you?

No shade intended, Duracell. Sorry if my opening came off that way.

i didn’t answer it because there’s virtually no answer i can give. i don’t look for something when talking to someone to see if they are eligible to becoming my friends. it just sort of happens. i have 3 really close friends and 1 of them is nothing like me at all. we have, like, nothing in common. but he’s a really really good friend, maybe even my “best friend”. i don’t think i would’ve become friends with him if i was looking for something.

Why isn’t it a reboot?

A reboot, at least how I see it, is a universal restart of continuity. Rebirth was just a retcon of some elements of the previous reboot (almost entirely undid the reboot for the Superman books, but for, say, Flash, they just re-introduced some characters previously rebooted out of existence).

Well I consider you an internet friend. Does that count for anything?

You probably don’t recognize me because of the red arm.

By that standard, Zero Hour isn’t a reboot, either.

They all suck, though, reboot or not.

I stand by it, then, though I haven’t read that one so idk.
