Since Kamachi wrote this as a side story, I'll be treating this as a side project. Problems, Touma?

Even then there will still be people claiming 'Fail List'.

It's like their opinions are infallible If it doesn't follow their ideals, it's crap.
You even said its Sankaku....

Yes I know that But that wasn't my point for bring up Sankaku; I was saying I've seen those type of childish behavior before- Where have I see it? At Sankaku, that's all.

And I was just saying you don't really need to specifically mention Sankaku. That's like if you had specifically mentioned 4-chan as an example of childish behavior instead.

No I'm sorry, I shouldn't make fun of other people's favorite show, it is wrong of me, I see that now.

How do you display that? given that definition the subject is already removed from the experience, it's just an observer.

Or is it a chain of actions? ...

we enjoy watching people "feel through imagined participation" of badass-ness and trolling that other people do on yet another group of people
... It's like the stalker chain from Zetsubou Sensei... though I guess that stated like that it wouldn't be "oxymoronic"...

When you understand it is easy to see what he means, explaining it is another matter entirely though. Hmm, let´s see, is basically "feeling the experiences of others as your own", pretty much the feeling of when you read a novel, get inside it´s world and picture yourself in the shoes of the hero: what he does, how, why and what for, as well as, his fears, dreams and thoughts, making the character your own as they say.

^ That's just the definition of vicarious.

Anyway, I finally understood what he said, though it would have been easier if the wording was: "we live vicariously on displays of badass-ness and trolling."

It's not that I'm nitpicking, I simply misunderstood his phrasing.

Well, how else can you explain something if not defining it,xD? personally i don´t see any issues with his wording, if anything is just that is a bit of a uncommon word, but it´s meaning and the place where he used it are spot on.
