There is simply no reason to assume that Yui (and by extension Kyoko and whoever or whatever is in Unit Zero) are sitting there staring into space and not moving the entire time. Especially since they require pilots to direct them and only under special circumstances do they move on their o...

I have a few questions of my own: Is this the real reason Gendo picked Shinji to pilot the Eva? Because Yui's soul was in unit 01 and he knew they would a higher synchronization than what Rei could achieve? Also can I assume this is why unit 01 went berserk in episode 1? A part of Yui's con...

I don't think it would have done any good for Shinji to go out and fight alongside Asuka. Doesn't she nearly kill all her enemies on her own? But then her enemies rejuvenate miraculously. If they're indestructible, going in to battle with Asuka would be a nice gesture, but futile. As for...

I never had a problem with this. The plug looks empty the same way a glass of water can look empty. LCL is orange, but with the right amount and type of light that could be compensated for. The bigger problem is how sound travels. Some people use the explanation that speech goes in and out of the co...

A little while ago I got a new Mac and for some reason formatted it as case-sensitive. I migrated my data my Time Capsule and everything was back to usual. Then I tried to launch Photoshop but it didn't respond. So I deleted it. And I put off reinstalling for a long time. When I did try reinstal...

Some rural part. Like Yaita, Tochigi. The 3G signal was so bad and she had no WiFi!

imgur has a much nicer method for resizing the image . PHPBB2 expects images to end with certain extensions without a query string. I bet there is a plugin to fix that. As I recall, PHPBB plugins are kind of a pain. So just migrate to Vanilla forums for $600+/year emoji-U+1F609 Anyway, I realized i...

Having removed the trailing "?1"s that gave the forum code indigestion, all but the first image appear borked. Imgur ads a suffix to the file name when you edit the size/orientation. I deleted the whole album when I realized they didn't work. I'm guessing this is a problem with th...

Hyphens don't work in passwords

I just found out that while you can sign up with a hyphen in your password, you can't actually log in with that password. This is a security risk, and bothersome for people using Apple-generated random passwords (for iCloud Keychain use), as they include hyphens by default. Passwords sho...

I finally saw Eyes Wide Shut last night and there was sex with minors in it. It shouldn't be off limits to story tellers. Nude action figures don't tell a story, though. It's disappointing to see the esteemed Eva brand stoop to that. It's also a shame when you notice all the Doritos ...

Yui learns the plans of SEELE and finds it unfair that the future generation will have no choice in their own fate. Her main goal is a basic and motherly one, to create a better world for Shinji. Unfortunately, she does not know which world is better, one where SEELE wins or one where they fail. For...

Well, at least that's how I always interpreted it... I mean, Gendo is clearly subservient and apart from them, he isn't present at most of their meetings, he doesn't even have a monolith... The way I interpreted it was that the monoliths were basically telecommunication devices. They co...

I'm very interested in this. Do you have another thread about it? Do you need help? My brother was working on his own cut of Evangelion for a while, but it was a lot of work.
