Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

It's for a good cause, man. This is about as far removed from Shinji's "I'm the lowest" bar cocktail and "scent of young boy's anus" as you can get.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Man, only identified as 'Joji', is discovered dead in his apartment months after his death. Literally buried alive, in his 6 TON pile of Pornographic magazine.

A man who probably left many a stain on porn magazines ends up as a huge stain on many porn magazines.

Poetry. Pure poetry.

The link you give makes it clear that he was found within a month (not "months") and that he died of a heart attack (not "literally buried alive"). I believe your phrases come from the hugely sensationalist account which originated in the Daily Mail. It's weird enough without the inaccuracies!

Exactly; and your original link also linked to the same sources as Gizmodo mentions. However, your text came from an entirely different source from what you linked.

Penguin in Japanese Zoo becomes obsessive wit Kemono friends Cutout in his inclosure. Even forgetting to eat so he can spend time with it.

The animals have discovered the concept of "waifu" before spoken languages.

For the sake of the animal kingdom, I think we need to stage an intervention.

There's an edit on the article now, saying that the "forgetting to eat" part of the story was misreported.

Also, waifus are the core of animal impulses and they bring out the rawest primal instincts. Duh. Language is for you sophisticates.

What terrible taste. Everyone knows the Emperor is where it's at! She has more artwork dedicated to her than all the others combined.
