Hello folks. This is Carlos here. Sorry I was inactive in submitting art pieces. I'm still active in dA by using my iPhone 4G to browse images, messages, etc. There's an app you can download in deviantART titled dA App, though for myself I don't have to download it anyway. Anyways, I want to tell you folks about what I have been doing so (other than school) outside of dA. I start to do some internet surfing, in which we folks do as usual on our computers, laptops, phones, and tablets. While I explore various nutritional facts to various food & drinks I viewed online, I came across to analyze crazy information about MSG; I thought about sharing some crazy facts about MSG. So here we go (Sources I used below):

1. MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) is the sodium salt of glutamic acid, one of the most abundant naturally-occurring non-essential amino acids. (Here's an example of an image of MSG: flaglerlive.com/wp-content/upl… Check to see if the link works)

2. It can still screw up your metabolism (The chemical process which takes place in the living organism in order to retain life). According to Daily Health Post, they stated that processed food that has additives will lead to obesity, which also helps to hurt your metabolism. Scientists agreed that MSG is harmful and can lead individuals, who are overweight & not overweight, to some health problems. Side effects to those who ate any food or drink that contains MSG may & will experience the following below (Source: FDA):

  1. Numbness
  2. Burning Sensation
  3. Headache
  4. Facial Pressure
  5. Chest Pain
  6. Drowsiness
  7. Nausea
  8. Rapid Heartbeat
  9. Weakness
  10. Tingling
  11. Difficulty for Breathing Asthmatics
  12. Faint
3. Other side effects can signify just like what I found above. According to Independent studies, for those of us who consume MSGs will give us the following:

  1. Cardiac (Affecting the heart which will cause people to have a heart attack, heart disease, and increase & decrease blood pressure)
  2. Circulatory (to spin circles to cirlces, and will cause people to Swell)
  3. Gastrointestinal (Affecting to the stomach and intestines, which will force us to vomit, have diarrhea, bloat, etc)
  4. Muscular (Affects the muscular body to feel joint pain, stiffness, and Flu-Like achiness)
  5. Neurological (Affecting the nervous system to our bodies. This will include Dizziness, Depressed, Rage Reactions, Anxiety, etc.)
4. MSGs are in (If not all) your favorite foods. They are commonly found in Asian Foods in various Asian Restaurants & they are also found in other fast foods, and especially packaged foods, such as Chips, Crackers, Soups, Lunch Meals, Salads, and others. Canned Foods do indeed have MSGs, such as Canned Tuna, Gravy, Dip Mixes, etc. Even Baby Formulas & Baby Foods have MSGs too (Which I did not know that until this day). Even worse, food & drink can still hid a bad secret that has not been labeled on products. The following ingredients will indicate to tell you which one's has MSGs (Source: 3FC):

  • Gelatin
  • Yeast Extract
  • Calcium Caseinate
  • Sodium Caseinate
  • Autolyzed Plant Protein
  • Glutamate
  • Glutamic Acid
  • Hydrolized Vegetable Protein
  • Hydrolized Plant Protein
5. Is MSG still safe despite giving people the worst feeling of MSG? It depends on how they are prep from locations. For example, if you buy deep-fried dishes (Egg Rolls for instance) in a Chinese Restaurant in California, then you should be aware of how it is cooked. If the deep-fried dishes are looking sharp and beautiful, then you don't see any problems, but if they are not prep, then AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS. Deep-Fried Dishes still enhance high blood pressure after you consumed them. When people ate deep-fried dishes, they may experience diarrhea because they ate MSGs WAY too much or WAY too fast. Some MGS has bacterial if food are not cleaned enough.

Still, you should decide yourself if you think MSG is good or bad. I still eat MSG (Shame on myself). Artists, Models, even people eat MGS. As long as you are safe and eating right, then you will have no problems with your food habit. If you are going to post a comment or respond to anything, maybe you should avoid eating MGS because, like I posted in this journal, will make people use their Rage Reactions. Good luck and stay healthy.

EDITTED: I'm back & ready to write! :D
Hi folks. :wave:
I thought about choosing my 5 weird facts about Transformers. As a child, I have admired awesome giant robots who can talk and fight. It is because they are popular, based on giant robots' bio, in films, TV, comic books, etc. As I watched Transformers on TV for several hours (In which I viewed Transformers Armada, the first transformers animation I have watched, aside from Cybertron. I have been wondering if I have ever seen anything weird while I watch Transformers films, TV, including in comic books. I have been researching many weird facts about Transformers. I have found a couple of weird Transformers info. Anyways, here we go: 5 Weird Facts about Transformers:

5. (Orson Welles). Unicron, a giant planet destroyers, seeks revenge against those who are in his way. Transformers: The Movie (Comic Book mostly) has introduced impressive actors who are voicing Transformers, such as Leonard Nimoy as Galvatron. One of the unusual and interesting thing I uncover information about Unicron is the actor who voiced the giant monster: Orson Welles. Orson Welles is an actor who has stared in numerous theatre plays, films (Such as Citizen Kane), and much more.  It is odd to hear his voice, portraying as the gigantic killing machine, though I can tell that Welles' voice was edited. According to Washington Post member, Jake Coyle, he stated that Orson Welles' voice "was so weak that it was altered with synthesizers until it hardly sounded like him." Now I see why there was an easter egg behind the voice of Unicron. Sadly, that was Orson Welles's last movie due to his heart condition, and later died from a Heart Attack in 1985. (A drawing of Orson Welles is a good example of how he looked like back in 1985, voicing Unicron)

4. Primus & Unicorn. Again, Unicron still have other weird facts, but also Primus. It is certainly odd that these characters represent God & The Fallen Angel. Primus represents God because he wants to protect the innocent, so he can support the Autobots in Cybertron. He is huge, strong, and never gives up; a good hero. Unicron, on the other hand is a villain whose mission is to eradicate anything that gets in his way. His appearance resemble much of the devil because of his appearances (Horns, Tail, Mustache & Beard, and he'a a bad boy). He's like Galactus (Villain from Silver Surfer from Marvel comic books) for destroying life in various planets. Both Primus & Unicron may be enemies to each other, but they are such awesome characters. (Below is a good example of how Unicron and Primus brawl just like their bios)

3. Starscream. Yup, you asked for it. Starscream is a righthand transformer of the Decepticons. He is known to be cocky with his master, Megatron, and tempts to be the next ruler of the Decepticons by planning to execute him. What's really weird about Starscream is that he never dies, as if he is an immortal thing, like Dracula. :XD: He was killed by Galvatron during Starscream's coronation in Transformers: The Movie. Anyways, when I watched the episode of Transformers: G1 titled Starscream's Ghost, which took place after several days of Unicron's demise, his hollow somehow escaped from his body, hoping to possess a Transformer's body. He hops around around Galvatron's men body, Scourge for instance, to complete his revenge against Galvatron. Later it is revealed that he is working for Unicron (Yup, he survived in the film). He worked for him because if Starscream successfully revived Unicron, he will get his body back after he fulfill his biding. They failed, causing Unicron to be destroyed forever, and Starscream is perished to the deep realm of Space....with his irritating screaming (I supposed that is why he is called Starscream because he screams too much. :XD: ). (An illustration below is a good example of weird moments of Starscream)

2. Reproduction. A lot of fans have been wondering how Transformers was made. The answer: Transformers babies. It sounds weird, but there are manny ways as to how Transformers are built & reproduce, from Mechanical to Sexual Reproduction. For starters, when Transformers were presented as Transformer Babies, their reproduction begin by Mechanical. The transformers scales the bodies of Transformers babies, from top to bottom, and later on commence construction. Each of them are constructed depending on Transformers story and life (Like in the origins of Transformers in comic books). Its not weird at all, but it could be a scary experience as to how big the Transformers babies are in different media. As for Resurrection, whenever a Transformer is destroyed (For example, Megatron successfully killed Optimus Prime), Transformers brings a body of a dead transformer, takes them into a lab, and insert a cool chip to bring back the giant fallen robot. In Transformers G1 episode, Starscream's Ghost, Starscream is back, but as a ghost, he is hoping to get his body back if he resurrects Unicron with his new body first. Doing so will cause Unicron to be back, but with his new form. It is unknown as to what his new body will look like in G1, but imagine if his head emerges with a dead transformer's body and use it to get revenge against all Autobots and Decepticons. That would be a bizarre moment. :/ Finally, there's Sexual Reproduction. The transformers are gendered, depending on their biography. They are mostly male with the occasional female, such as Arcee. Arcee has a bouncy experience as a painter with a high pitched voice, and have similar parts of Optimus Prime (Just the coloring), but in Transformers: Prime, she is much more serious, brave and stronger than her past version of Arcee. Genders can be unknown in various stories of Transformers franchise (In comic books, TV, Film, Toys, Video Games, etc). Imagine if all Autobots and Decepticons are all female. Would all little 8 year old girls start playing with boy-like toys and video games? Or what happens if boys hated the idea that all autobots and decepticons are all female? Would they stop thinking of playing with giant robots in their bedrooms or anywhere else? You think about that. (Below are some examples of #2)

1. G1 episodes. Ah yes, Transformers: G1, one of the coolest TV series of 1980's cartoons. Remember the time you see the original Transformer's appearance while watching the show & film? Yup, those are the good old days. And do you remember watching episodes of G1 that are bizarrely laughable and just plain weird? Some of you, Yes, but others No. For starters, in episode titled Hoist Goes to Hollywood, way before Bay directed the film series of Transformers, While at first the Autobots were disgruntled at being overshadowed by human actors, the director eventually decided to aim the camera more at the big robots...only he made them wear scary alien masks. That's....weird. Another weird episode titled Child's Play kick it up a notch to make the TV series a little bit more weirder than Hoist Goes to Hollywood. In that episode, Decepticons  build a space bridge to cease the humans in the baseball field, but few minutes later, Autobots showed up in a baseball field to start a small war against the Decepticons, but accidentally transported to a different dimension. Next in that episode, they are trapped in a big baby alien's bedroom with huge toys, and a crib. As it turns out, they are in a different planet with different alien races. They are tortured, scared, as if they are treated as mere Toys. Interestingly, we, the humans, treated Autobots and Decepticons as Toys too. Weeeeeeird. O_O And finally, Carnage in C-Minor took a big blow for making the tv series more awkwardly than expected. Here's the summary (I would just make this short), according to Transformer's Wiki:
The Decepticons sought out a powerful sound weapon on the planet Eurythma, which was populated by Renaissance Fair rejects who spoke only in song and took the whole musical theme way overboard. Soundwave, who had a rare late-G1 cartoon starring role, was practically orgasming over the perfection of the harmony-based weapon, which had been powerful enough to destroy a comet the Decepticons had been outfitting with engines in order to crash it into the Autobot city-bot, Metroplex. After it was discovered that the weapon was the result of three of the planet's denizens (all named after different musical tempos) singing in harmony, Autobot boombox Blaster guided his comrades in a mission to stop Soundwave from recording all three parts of the harmony. Soundwave's "erase" tape is activated by Blaster. Hmmm.....well anyways, that episode has various errors which made the episode more oddly complicated. For example, few Autobots are dead in the film, but in the episode, they are alive (Transformers Zombies anyone?). I'll let you figure out which errors the episode has in the TV series. One more thing, if you remember watching episodes of Transformers: Prime, such as the episode where Starscream turned Skyquake into a Terrorcon zombie. Yup, Zombies....:dead: (Below are some examples compared to what I stated in the last fact.)

Well that's that and I want to thank you readers for reading my journal right here. If you want info, you can always go to Transformers Wiki, Orson Welles's biography, and much more. :)

Hi folks. I have been watching and reading exciting 5 facts about anything. You know what? I decided that I should start posting my 5 facts about random things. I decided to pick my 5 facts about YuGiOh! I love the both the manga, anime, video games, toys, and you just name them all. I used to watch the show back in my good old childhood days. Good times; yet I still watch them online.
Anyways, here are my 5 facts about YuGiOh:

1. YuGiOh! is actually the official Japanese translation for "Game King." At first, I wasn't really sure if it is a translation, but after listening to the OST of "YuGiOh! King of Games," I see that why the song is titled, "King of Games," instead of "King Games." It is because the Americans think that "King Games" is not a perfect translation, so they wanted to move "King" in the left side of the title, switch the word "Game," add the little "s" into Games to form "Games," and add "of" in the middle of the title to complete its official translation to YuGiOh as "King of Games" (Example below):

King of Games by animagess 

2. "YuGiOh! (Season." Season 0 (quoted by fans) in the anime was developed back in 1998, produced by Toei Animation. It only ran 27 episodes from April-October 1998. It was banned in USA, and possibly on other countries, on TV because most of the episodes has bad words (stated in English subtitles) on it, graphic scenes from various YuGiOh! (Season 0) episodes. This season is not involved with YuGiOh! (2000s) because of the plot sequence. It can be watched via YouTube. www.youtube.com/results?search…

3. Leichter. A minor antagonist from YuGiOh! (Season 3), Leichter (Kogoro Daimon in Japanese) is actually a black character. Fans still remember that all characters of the series are not black, but they did forgot about Leichter. He may be dubbed by a Japanese actor, Hisashi Izumi, but voice actor, Sean Schemmel (White) voiced him as a black character. It is unknown where Leichter is from, but according to his skin color, he may possibly be a Black American fictional character. He is one of The Big Five members who want to destroy Seto Kaiba, Yugi, and everyone else, destined to take over Kaiba Corp. For more info about Leichter, read here yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Leichter

4. YuGiOh films. The Pyramid of Light (or YuGiOh: The Movie) is the first movie to be established, while YuGiOh: Bonds Beyond Time is the second movie to be developed. While the first film did not appeased much critics, stating that the plot is "Weak," but the second film became better. I love these films very much and I'm fond of them (Example films here). 

YuGiOh! il Film Unofficial Desktop by PharaohAtisLioness (YuGiOh: The Pyramid of Light) Bonds Beyond Time by ViktoriaHristova (YuGiOh: Bonds Beyond Time)

5. Spinoffs. YuGiOh has introduced spinoffs: GX, 5DS, ZEXAL and ARC-V. Each of these series have different stories with different characters. YuGiOh: GX is the first spinoff to be introduced to the YuGiOh franchise. ARC-V is the latest spinoff of the franchise. Even though they are not the sequels to the original YuGiOh, they still have monsters on cards; still part of YuGiOh franchise.

These are my 5 facts about YuGiOh. Thank you for reading my journal and have a nice day.
