trying to catch up on One Piece after like a decade off. I left off in the middle of the Arabasta Arc.
is... is this just not a fun thing to watch? i just watched 5 episodes where they were mostly just struggling to walk in a straight line because everyone is Too Wacky to function outside of life or death struggles. the characters even talked about it a little in one episode, but then just kept yelling and getting lost in the desert.

i had a coworker once who just never filled out the periodic required self-evaluation forms. every 6 months when "perf" season struck, you could find them at their desk, serenely archiving unopened emails with subjects like "ACTION REQUIRED" and "LATE".
