But it gives your life a framework, which is a benefit in itself quite apart from what might in the end come of completing it. So celebrate this semester's improvement (oh, yes, that's why you posted here - so, well done!).

Re: DISNEY buys FOX

The deal includes Fox's stake in the UK-based Sky News. Murdock was only this year angling to take complete control of Sky (through Fox), but now it will no longer be him even if Fox is allowed to proceed with the bid; this much is a good thing™.

Note - the guy in the fur coat with a sax who leads the other performers on to the stage is Shiro Sagisu himself.

Re: Pictures Thread 2.22: You Can (Not) Advance

https://cassland.org/images/2017FirstSnow.JPG Very pretty snow this morning - but the main roads around Oxford have completely closed sections, so my intended trip to London (for a 90th birthday lunch party) is sadly off. My daughter was stuck on a blocked main road for several hours, but has just ...

Which order are you watching Haruhi? TV, DVD, or chronological?

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Any parent can tell you that in real life it was almost impossible to predict how their children would turn out and what relationships they would form; the mind and the world are both too complex to know the answers to everything. In the case of the characters from Eva we have far less information t...

That can equally apply to carers, nurses, and the like - it is not the same as romantic love; the difference is not merely semantic.

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

Your NGE images barely relate to what you say; the EoE ones are from a single scene which is not even real life; the manga scene is before they even knew each other. The Rebuild scenes are more indicative - but really only when taken in isolation. (And note that I'm saying that even though I don't s...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Some people seem to have a low threshold for what they class as romance - I hope they don't get disappointed in real life.

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Most of the time it's irritation, somewhat tempered with concern. But her saying his name at the start of Q indicates that she still thinks he could have a role to play, even after 14 years. None of these things indicate that he is "nothing" to her - but none of them are romantic either.

There are plenty of places where this is strongly disputed - here for one.

I always question everything.

You make it sound as if you think there's no one else who does.

Re: What could Silver Bell mean? What do you think?

Google finds plenty of Silver Bell restaurants, a bakery, and the like. But looking to Japan in particular, the Silver Bell was/is a favoured meeting spot in Tokyo station , especially before the time of cell phones. So one could conjecture that it is a meeting place for those who get lost (yeah - n...
