Who the [tornado fang] is going to be next? Goddamit. He still had at least 10 years ahead if him.

RIP Leonard Nimoy

RIP Leonard Nimoy
To be fair with all the stress he's gone through in his life, being an actor of a series as huge as Star Trek, living to his 80's is impressive.

EDIT: Huh he also voiced Master Xehanort in Birth By Sleep..........does that mean Terra will get his body back?

EDIT 2: According to TV Tropes the COPD was a result of smoking in his early years.  So yeah 83 years is pretty darn amazing.

This man has been entertaining my family since my Dad was a kid, even before his timeless role as Mr. Spock. So sad to hear about his passing. From Spock to him voicing Galvatron in the only Transformers movie that matter. What a fantastic man. Live long and prosper.

Lenard Nemoy was one of my favortie Sci-Fi actors, I knew he wasn't well and in his 80s but it's still kinda shocking that he's passed away.

*Vulcan Salutes* You shall be missed.  O^O

Believe it or not my mom just told me she knew his brother because he used to work in the place she used to work in the place she worked in before she went to her current work place when the old place was sold. 

He was the Vice President of the Production Intraocular Lenses from 1987-1988 at the place she used to work in before it was sold, so he was pretty damn important in my mom's industry as a Member of the Board.

She never met Leonard himself but that's pretty darn insane.

When I found out about his passing on TFN, I screamed "NOOOOOOOOOOO" aloud.  It was like a punch to the gut.

He was also on one of the funniest Simpsons episodes of all time.

Damn shame. He got beamed up to that great Vulcan in the sky.

I love you almost as much as I love booty parades.

Yes, he voiced MX, but his passing won't affect the story at all. They'll just hire a new voice actor.

Whether or not Terra will get his body back will be determined in the Xehanort finale, Kingdom Hearts 3.

....Dude I know that, I was making a stupid silly joke. -AC

Seriously I'm amazed you thought I was serious and not making a stupid silly joke.  Even my brother who also said the exact thing you just did too but at least he understood where I was going with it too, he got the joke and chuckled a bit.  And our sense of humor don't intercept all the time either you have to understand, so seeing him laugh a little felt kind of good. I actually even made an entire room laugh with that stupid joke believe it or not yesterday when I went to Will's birthday party yesterday and told it, because they understood it was a joke and could see I meant it in like some kind of comical fan fiction situation with like say Xehanort fading from existence or just suddenly pop.  I mean it in a fictional sense not a 'Oh the actor's dead let's just get rid of the character' way, they can't do that in a video game like they do in a say live action show, or if he was just voicing some minor character. 

They obviously didn't do it when Eggman's previous actor died, Scott Drier I think it was, and replaced him with Mike Polluck, so why would they do it here? Of course they would get a new Actor for Xehanort, that's the obvious thing to do, that what they will do and it would be stupid if they didn't.  It doesn't matter if Nimoy was much more famous than Scott Drier, Xehanort is integral to the story so he has to be replaced.  Not to mention if they were stupid enough to do that it would kind of go against one of Nimoy's most famous quotes as Spock and from what I've seen of his Twitter about his offer to become anyone's honorary Grandpa, and his book I am Spock after people got confused with I am not Spock thinking he resented his role of being Spock and not the fact that his role of Spock made people Type Cast him because he understood that people cared about his character as Spock a lot I think it's something he himself lives by.  "The needs of many outweigh the needs of a few."

However when I saw that he voiced Xehanort that joke was the first thing that popped into my head because my imagination felt it was appropriate to make a silly stupid little joke to make people laugh a little because this sort of death really affected a few people, and most of the time people did get it and laughed.  I wanted to cheer people up a little and it worked and it made me happy that I could make them happy a little bit.

In fact I posted this on Facebook too just to make sure they knew my intentions with the joke, just to make sure no one got mad at me but so far no one has.  It was on the same post I found out about his role as Master Xehanort.

Honestly I get I'm not one for joke making and sometimes some jokes go over my head, but there are times when I'm not being serious at all either.

That's just the thing.

With you, it's very hard to tell when you're joking; it certainly wouldn't have surprised me if it was a valid question. Not to mention that, through the internet, some jokes may not work as well without an emoticon (in this case, kobun) to follow.

I guess but you also know I write as a hobby and am studying as a Business Major, so it wouldn't make sense for me, as slow and logical as I am for the most part, to question something as obvious as that.

It would be far from the first time you've asked an obvious question.

Some things go over your head, which is totally fine. All I'm saying is that this could've very well been that same instance.
