To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand South Park. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of politics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Stan’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike South Park truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Stan’s existential catchphrase “Oh my God, they killed Kenny!” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂
And yes, by the way, i DO have a South Park tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid. 😎
Fluorite :- Fluorite is believed to absorb and neutralize negative energy, making it a great piece to wear or place around the home. A useful crystal for healers, as it is said that fluorite makes one more receptive to the vibrations of other stones. Known as a"genius stone" fluorite can promote concentration, and aid decision making. It is an excellent companion during psychic development and meditation, as it shuts off mind chatter, has protective qualities, and grounds the person using it.
I will write a book one day about how I feel about every aspect of Emily Stone. She’s a full genius. She has found her genius and is giving it all so fully and beautifully. I think everyone who works with her, brushes shoulders with her, or even makes eye contact with her, gets a shot of sunshine.

Meet the burrito-filled bacon pizza burrito. Yes, that’s right: Some gluttonous/stoned genius managed to wrap two pounds of bacon and three chipotle burritos within a large cheese pizza. The pizza burrito then is topped with more cheese and baked to form the most insane munchie of all time.
Well, I don’t have a fully developed AU with a plot and everything, but I have put some thought into what gems they would be, and what their designs would look like…
Green would be Vesuvianite (which is also referred to as Idocrase), a stone associated with courage and growth. His gem would be triangle-shaped, on the back of his left hand (like the triforce, basically).
Blue’s gem would be Plancheite, shield-shaped on his upper chest. Placheite is associated with strength, protection, and fame.
Red took a while to decide on, but I think I’ll go with Rhodochrosite. It’s associated with love and creativity and is believed by some to help bolster one’s self-confidence. His gem would be heart-shaped, in the middle of his chest.
Vio would be Fluorite, which is is associated with concentration and decision-making. It’s sometimes even referred to as the “genius stone.” His gem would be in the shape of an arrowhead, on the back of his neck (mimicking the position of an archer’s arrow quiver).
For shadow, my thought was Obsidian - since it’s natural black glass, it reminded me of the Dark Mirror. Also, it’s a volcanic rock, and Shadow spent a lot of time in the Fire Temple, built on a volcano. The gem would take the form of a triangle on the back of his right hand, as a reversed mirror image of the original Link (and Green).
(Although, I’m not sure I’ve really made up my mind for Shadow yet. A while back, @sinnomatic did a write up of his own FS/SU headcanons - his headcanon for Shadow is Heliotrope/Bloodstone, and I really like that idea too. The symbolism there is so poignant TTnTT)
