Crab sticks don't actually contain any crab. And from 1993, manufactures have been legally obliged to label them 'crab flavoured sticks'.

Anatidaephobia -
is the fear that at any point, somewhere in the world, a duck or goose may be watching the person who is suffering from the phobia. The person is not necessarily afraid that the duck or goose will attack them or even touch them, just watching.

In Blizzard Entertainment's 1998 military science-fiction RTS game, StarCraft, the Terran race imbalanced. In Korean, this is known as 테사기 (테 from the word Terran, and 사기, meaning fraud).

How so? I've never played SC competitively or even online, a fleet of Battlecruisers seems pretty powerful, but I'll admit, nothing causes more devastation than a fleet of Protoss carriers, all fully loaded.

BCs aren't used a lot (too expensive, take too long) and carriers are used in certain situations (same problem), but I'll give you some reasons people think this (not saying they're true). Terran has had (arguably) a majority of the best players, including the best player of all time (Flash aka Lee Young-ho). Because of this, the glory days of StarCraft were pretty Terran dominated and so is/was the prize money distribution. In terms of gameplay, the reasons mostly come down to vultures being really good (and really cheap), mechanical unit (ex. siege tank) upgrades being too strong, or small things like SCVs being able to repair buildings (or buildings being able to fly). Honestly I think 테사기 is a bit of a circlejerk, but there ARE people who really think Terran is too strong.

That was a lot of random facts. My last fact is that Lee Young-ho aka Flash (aka the greatest StarCraft player of all time) recently switched his race from Terran to Random (all the races), so we'll get to see if his results are more about the nature of the game or his own skill.

There are about 38,000 McDonald's restaurants.  There are that many chicken hofs on my street.  Or so it feels.

BTW, 42,000 Subway sandwich shops.
Mr. C is not a bad person, in fact is quite a good person here. One of the best people on this forum if you really look at it
