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

Well, now I know the name of the guy who created the dish I order about 95% of the time from Chinese restaurants.

Also, the fact that the guy who invented the Big Mac also died last week at the SAME AGE is evidence that the End Times are upon us.

Or just a fucked-up coincidence.
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

You mean the guy who created General Tso's chicken has died?! And he also died in same week as the guy who invented the Big Mac?! I feel dead on the inside. :sniffle:

Oh don't worry, I'm sure 2017 will be much, much worse. (Though IMO aside from the rather excessive number of celebrity deaths, it hasn't been all that bad a year.)
Here lies Squigsquasher.
