Re: FML general thread [8]

With his usual conduct, I am surprised he had a job to begin with AFAIK, it's his first job after university, and he almost got fired after the first three months because they weren't too happy with him, back in December - hint for privacy-minded people: don't do this kind of phone call on your bal...

Re: FML general thread [8]

There's certainly been a case where signalling cables alongside a railway track was stolen for the copper - that created havoc, as you might expect! In my country it also occasionally fries the thieves to a crisp. :uhh: They had to install security cameras and alarm systems to reduce the problem to...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in Evangelion 3.0+1.0

The trailer turns out to be both entirely accurate and hugely misleading, as Eva Final will just be a 3 hour kaiju movie of Shinjizilla and Asukamothra duking it out in a premarital spat, with some anatomically accurate Rei-Harpies thrown in just for fun, and Mari/Unit 08 is only there to ensure the...

Re: First look at Unit 08 and Mari from the theatrical teaser for 3.0+1.0

My theory: The reason we don't see what Unit 08 is fighting against is that with Toho on board, all Angels and monsters will be live action, i.e. actors in rubber suits, and they're still designing the suits. :D

Not really a FML, more a "What the flying fuck is wrong with some people?!?". Yes, that person again. Outside temperature (now): 26 degrees Celsius. Inside temperature (now): Pretty much the same. Yesterday: hottest day ever in my country, close to 40 degrees Celsius. Up to this morning: L...

Re: Girls und Panzer

Japan has generally had more tolerance for doujins as derivative works in particular, so trying to restrict their distribution is a head scratcher. There has been a certain rise of sales of doujin products outside the events those products are usually mandated for, by the original doujin makers (i....

Tales of the Psycho-Neighbour part 235,467: For the last two weeks he has had very erratic 'working' hours - which just so happen to match exam times at the local higher education facilities :rolleyes: (so far for 'having a job', I guess...).

Psycho-neighbour update: Three weeks free of him for me, two weeks on holiday and when I came back he was gone for a week. So I did some more work on eliminating sources of noise in my apartment (turns out a certain wall vibrates when water taps are turned open wide and a cupboard that was attached ...

Re: Anyone ever see these? I can't find any information on them. They're unopened

What more were you looking for? New posters who don't post any more messages than "What are these?" with the implication of "(What are they worth?)" always prefer to hear "They are worth a bazillion dollars, the blood of the buyer's newborn child, and two dozen experienced ...

Actually, that's 100% correct: an acorn IS an oak tree, just a very tiny one hidden together with a a food cache inside a hardened outer shell. Just like all plant seeds, really. ^_^

It's more a Mom and Dad joke... :wink:

Re: Rule34: When does it go too far?

I honestly don't think there's a line that won't be crossed by Rule 34. Someone will always cross whatever line is put down. For example, "Mai-chan's Daily Life". And to avoid problems I'll just leave you with a Wikipedia link, the plot summary, and some additonal information: https://en....

IIRC, Kira was supposed to die, but the creators chickened out because of his popularity in Japan.

I need to make a small correction to the saga of Psycho-Neighbour: He has a girlfriend . Who could just as well be a clone of his mother: same length, same body shape, same hairstyle (but curly instead of straight), same type of personality. :facepalm: :freud: I crossed them while going to the super...
