Posted in: Obama says Muslims must fight 'twisted interpretations of Islam' See in context

There is nothing twisted about their interpretation. The religion itself is twisted.

Posted in: Death sentence upheld for former bar hostess who killed 2 men See in context

I learned two things today, why deathrow costs more than regular, and Japan has the death penalty.

Oh, and how, hanging. I learned three things.

Posted in: Japanese gamers debate Red Cross’s call for virtual crimes to be punished See in context

This article amuses me in a way... because if you were to read it on an actual gaming site, I assure you, it would read as if the Red Cross wants gaming to stop having guns and hurting puppies.

But here... what they say almost makes a kind of sense, even if I don't wholly agree with it.

Posted in: Miyazaki hints at possible 'Nausicaa' sequel See in context

The manga was amazing, and I'd love to see more... but the movie killed the Giant Warrior... where the Giant Warrior kinda played a HUGE role in the manga (See: Without him, the plot cannot continue). So I don't really know how they would follow that particular story.

I presume he wouldn't have been beaten if he'd had an affair with a woman she didn't hate?

I saw this episode. Spoiler alert, it's her crazy stalker ex-boyfriend.

Posted in: Fitness meets cute anime girls in exercise app See in context

I will tell this app the same thing I told my college pe teacher when asked, "are you going to let a girl do more sit ups than you?" I am already married, who do I have to impress?

Posted in: Snake on a plane: Qantas passengers amazed as python clings to wing during flight See in context

The strength this creature portrayed is simply amazing, but I knew this story could not end well given how cold it is at those altitudes and how little air there is. Truly sad... It had to have been a terrible death.

Posted in: Japanese 'Avengers' fans up in arms over shoddy voice acting on Blu-ray release See in context

I've been watching anime forever... I suppose I'm just used to it...

The fans make a good point about not pairing voice actors too characters though.

For those that think the gun is fake, judging from this video:


Which actually shows the target... they are not.

Posted in: The end of the evolution debate See in context

It's a bit optimistic to think that in 5 to 10 years people will accept evolution despite religion's blatant display of "Blind Denial" in the face of facts in the past.

I like the way the article was written. It was humorous.

Posted in: Gendo Ikari shaves and smiles in new Schick x Evangelion crossover commercials See in context

They are clearly lying...

No one smiles when they have to shave.

Posted in: Yellow sand observed in Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka See in context

Who cares where it's from?? I always find it amusing to see people roll their eyes when they say it's from China, as though the nation is to blame for it.

It's just where it's from... no one is to blame. If something that isn't indigenous to a place is found there, the report is going to mention where it's from.

Posted in: Whatever happened to 'post-racial' America? See in context

I have read the article... but even if I hadn't, the answer to the title is simple.

"It never existed"

I was unaware that anyone truly believed we had gotten over our issues with ethnicity.

Posted in: Groups criticize Japan for carrying out executions See in context

That world chart clearly needs more red.

I think the only problem here is waiting for years in solitary confinement.

twildman: "causing the pistol to shoot"...should read...causing the pistol to fire!

I would have gone with "discharge" personally, but I had to stop at that sentence as well. It just did not sound right at all.

Posted in: Man vs shark: Australia's battle for the deep See in context

I really like this general trend of shark attack victims not holding a grudge. It shows that the unwarranted fear is ebbing.

A billion dollars for his campaign? Seriously...?

Gods I hope he doesn't win again...

Posted in: Gov't to discuss allowing women in imperial family to keep status after marriage See in context

The choices are, risk the death of the blood line from the modern era's comparitively low birth rates, or risk an explosion in the blood line, since people will essentially marry into the imperial family, and thus all of their children would be imperial successors.

Tough choice, really.
