At first I thought that it was a google thing (that was what the graph looked like at first) but it seems to be measuring websites that have certain words, or something. How the heck did you discover the site in the first place?

I don't even know. I was responding to a post, and hit Google for something, and that site was one of the results. I can't begin to fathom why.

I can't google "How did Bagheera discover a quote from himself on a Stanford website?".

But now that I've said it here... I can.

Yay, found it on the first try!

You can do it too!

Within the first week or two of being here, I had noticed that I could Google pretty much anything I had typed here, and it would show up on the first page. Depending on how specific it was, of course.

Even "I'm sorry Bagheera" makes the first page, at the very bottom.

It doesn't explain the graph, however. Judging by the bottom of the page, it appears to mean that, that exact usage of words (in any order?) has been used 149 times? There is a link with the exact quote, and it takes you to a topic here, titled "Eva in a sentence", and more specifically to a comment by a user called Titanium, that reads "Your mom."

Words on the internet go strange places. Just googling even part of Bagheera's quote brings up truly bizarre results containing the full quote.

Hi there.

After reading Evageeks on and off for a few months, I created an account.

I discovered Evageeks a long time ago, IIRC after somehow being pointed to Reichu's creepily fascinating "naked Eva" statues (those things exert bile fascination on people...), after watching Eva on Manga Entertainment's R2 DVDs (the old ones). Although I haven't watched the remasters or Rebuild yet, I've been buying some Eva-related merchandise in the last few months - mostly vintage garage kits (including everyone's favourite penile Angel).


Now before this causes problems, apparently I created an account on here a long time ago, so long ago I didn't even remember I ever did. I don't remember the username and the password is not on my little paper list of forum passwords, so it must be nearly a decade ago... So I registered using a different email address. Please don't banninate me for that! :uhh:

Hey everybody!

I first saw Eva earlier this year, and fell in love with it. I watched the series, EoE, and the Rebuilds in very short order and it stuck with me in the ensuing months. I started to rewatch it a bit ago, and found myself wanting to talk about it a whole lot. So I found this place!

Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

Welcome to the madness, serveux! Always a blast to have new folks.

We have to remember what's important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, and work. But work has to come in third.

Come read EVA Sessions! This place has it, too! There'll be pizza! Not really! There are other things, too! Not EVA Sessions! Did I mention the pizza!?

Hey guys, I kind of recently found this place and decided to join it. I'm into eva and other animes, part of that includes going to cons and cospalying as mostly eva characters. The cosplays I have currently done is a Gendo Ikari and a Sailor gendo cosplay/crossplay. In the future I plan to get a plugsuit finished.

When that's done, you'll have to post a pic. Also...thumbs up on Holo the Wolf!
