To counter the thread on childish things we still do Focus: What are some things that you loved as a kid or even better as an adult that you grew out of and never understood why you liked in the first place? Until about 3 years ago I watched every single Anime (Japanese cartoon, Japanese Animation for the purists) I could get my hands on. All of a sudden something clicked and I found them detestably immature, now I can barely sit through the best episode of what was one of my favorite shows when I was 23. It's hilarious because the two guys I use to watch Anime with are a year older than me and still love to watch. They are also more mature than me in almost every conventional way (i.e. married homeowners) but they still sit down and watch these silly, poorly translated Japanese cartoons with horrible plots, annoying characters and inane resolutions to conflict.
