Re: Image source requests

#1 is from Episode 1 Having just rewatched that part of episode 1, I can say that it isn't from that section. [LATER] It's Episode 7 @ 05m24s #7 is from episode 2 I think. When Shinji tells Misato that he's okay with living alone 'cause he has always lived alone. @ 09m12s http://thumbs2.imagebam.co...

Re: FML general thread [8]

Some years ago, I pulled the top off of one of my teeth while eating some Camembert, and needed a crown fitting as a result.

It's not the hard and crunchy things that are the problem, it's the sticky ones that put the teeth under tension.

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Schoolgirl crushes on older/popular/talented girls are a thing -- you'll find them in English school stories for girls, not just in Japanese Class S material. But in this case it would be likely to be Shinjiko crushing on the immensely popular red-head (along with all the others in Episode 9).

Re: How do I convince my stupid friend who won't watch end of eva because of the first scene

There's always the option of skipping the first 4-5 minutes of the film. It's not like you're losing that much by doing so, as it keeps on tumbling down all the rest of the way. OTOH skipping the whole lets you keep the upbeat on-air ending unspoiled by the rather savage retcon that EoE represents.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

I finished the backlog titles I've been watching, and at the end I can say that Gifu Dodo : Kanetsugu & Keiji , a title which a few EvaGeeks watched at the time, is a pretty good "Manly Sengoku notables do manly things" title, so long as you are fine with the style of having the major ...

I used the open-source version of SmartDeblur -- the same one we've tried cleaning up Reiquarium images with before. It's another deconvolution tool along the same lines -- it just has to be, given the mathematics involved.
