He's probably referring to the Bardock special. Zarbon was the one who first recommended destroying Planet Vegeta because the saiyans were rapidly growing in strength.
It was actually Beerus disguised as Zarbon #StayWoke

Like with Freeza, where he starts off over 10 times stronger than all his henchmen except Ginyu (because...well, just because), then we find out he can transform and get even more powerful, and then he reveals he can transform two more times, before finally coming out with the fact that he hasn't even been using anywhere near 50% of his power. Oh, and he can survive in the vacuum of space. All this stuff is just presented as the way Freeza is, without even an attempt at rationalizing it, yet the tone dictates we're supposed to take all this silly grasping at straws as thrilling danger. So I guess I don't really take the power inflation in the Boo arc seriously, but I don't take the power inflation in earlier arcs seriously either, so there's no net loss of seriousness. I think a silly story presented as serious is harder to accept than a silly story presented as silly.

I wonder if Tenshinhan knows that doesn't count as a job.

Why do these two look so similar though...

Nope, DBE gi is actually cool and would look good in anime i believe. I'd rather see DBS Goku wear something like this instead of the same gi as he did in Z or that gi he got in RoF arc. I also liked Piccolo's outfit in DBE.

I'm re-watching Dragon Ball GT in full on my blog. Check it out if you're interested in my thoughts on the series as I watch through it!

I believe it dates back to 4chan where there were (presumably still are? Haven't been on 4chan in a damn long time) a lot of character wars (e.g. "CHADhan", "Cutegang", "JOBgeta", and so on), and the joke is that the characters themselves are the ones flaming & trolling each other.
I.e. all the pro-Gohan anons talking about what an awesome & godly CHAD he is are actually Gohan himself, wasting time deep into the night as Videl watches from the doorframe, growing more and more concerned about him and his increasingly psychotic obsession with proving his worth to a group of anonymous liars on the internet.
And Caulifla is calling everyone is a dog.

I can't even fathom what's going on here myself, actually.

Oh no, it's actually a really good gi. Probably the best thing about the movie.

Distilling the PTSD wrought by the movie behind this image, this is actually really cool (though to be fair, it's hard to mess up martial artist uniforms).
