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

It's nice to see he final frontier being explored. But does JAXA have the ability to go up in space to recover an EVA yet?

The Titanic II is apparently and somehow) still a thing and is set to have it's maiden voyage in 2022. There are many things about this that seem both in poor taste, and also heavily tempting fate. Something tells me the ship will be setting sail April 10, 2022 to boot... :facepalm:

^ Something something cash money? :money: :money: :money:

I mean, unless there's some other reason I can't fathom, which is possible, but in this case the money from interested (and wealthy) parties has got to be the main motivator. Why else build a replica of the most widely recognized sunk ship? What's next, the Lusitania II? :rolleyes:

If we lived in some alternative universe where the Titanic had not sunk and the white star line still existed and was like P and 0 ferries I'd be fine with this but we don't and this is massively bad taste in the name of money and I wouldn't sail on a ship named after one where more than 1,500 died in the one of the worst maritime distastes in history.... :irked:

In all honesty, I wouldn't even be surprised if people were to genetically engineer catgirls. Would be a fitting phenomenon for our time

Sorry for the double post, however I forgot to mention this earlier, and it does deserve a separate post. Today marks 100 years since the end of WWI. We remember this day in the US as Veteran's day, though elsewhere it is remembered as Armistice Day or Remembrance day, it is a day to say thank you to all those in the military who are serving, and to all those who have served, and I do say thank you.

Now this is a puzzle I need to think over a while to solve. :huh:

To add a bit to the puzzle, if you're not half-Rheinish, you never know. Most of the Prussian peasantry were Slavs or Balts, convinced in some moment of history to abandon their speech and adopt German customs. Also, in medieval ages Polish royals brought literally tons of German settlers to boost the economy of their realms. So it wouldn't be surprising much to find out that once ago our ancestors lived door to door, in the same town or village. Cheers! :D
