Re: FML general thread [8]

Well, the shit is about to hit the fan in the Netherlands. The health authorities published a very optimistic report on the number of infections, claiming the infection rate was slowing, while at the same time publishing the new numbers of actual infections and deaths, which are going up faster than...

Re: FML general thread [8]

I have to say, ~2 weeks ago I thought Samshiel-kun was being a little bit too much in hysterics and Corona will fly by like SARS did; but alas, I was wrong. This is a full-fledged crisis. So did my co-workers. ^_^ Well, until they started to notice that my predictions for the new number of cases in...

Re: FML general thread [8]

^ Corporate America would make for an amazing parallel universe television show if it wasn't so terrifyingly real. To be honest, even though part of the US response sucks (just like it does in the UK), the other part is pretty good. Compare that to the Netherlands, which is starting to look like a ...

Re: FML general thread [8]

Well, after yesterday's press conference where the Dutch prime minister and the boss of the health crisis team demonstrated they were complete clowns by shaking hands after announcing that shaking hands was banned, more FUD like 7-day quarantine (instead of 14), a doctored increase of patients (the ...

Re: FML general thread [8]

The most recent numbers in China that I've come across are that the amount of reported new infections has gone down by more than 50%, so that curve will only be rising for so long That's indeed normal, as most outbreaks follow a certain type of curve that starts slowly, then grows exponentially, un...

Re: FML general thread [8]

We are seeing a very nice exponential curve until now: day 1: 1 case day 2: 2 cases day 3: 4 cases day 4: 10 cases day 5: 18 cases Prediction: Tomorrow: 36-40 cases Wednesday: 72-80 cases Thursday: 152-160 cases Friday: 304-320 cases etc. Although it might go up quicker, because thanks to STUPID (tm...

This could (and should) be a movie:

The Wales Chainsaw Tree Massacre

...or at least she could be the inspiration for some fanart. ^_^

Re: FML general thread [8]

Actually, yesterday I realized I am more scared of the lack of government response (now they have some infectees they still go on saying "it's just a heavy flu" and give the most rosy outcome possible as the worst possible option :cringe: ) and especially my compatriots reaction to that. A...

Re: FML general thread [8]

Well, Sars 2.0 is shaping up to probably become a total disaster in my country because the authorities seem to think it is merely Flu 2.0, are not actually testing anyone, deny that tests are necessary, deny that it can spread very fast (I guess that's why it's showing up at the border a few days af...

So you can "eat" your favourite character.

And the NERV logo. Guess that one also needs some love. :shifty:

Re: SSSS Gridman - Studio Trigger (2018)

SSSS Gridman was great. Fingers crossed that this new series will be just as good. If not better. Instead of crossing fingers, shouldn't we be making the Baltan-gesture (i.e. index and middle finger together and ring and pinkie together)? ^_^ That's so fun! Also something interesting is that Licca-...

Re: News of Anime in Japan

Just reading the synopsis of that series on TVTropes makes it look boring like hell, unless you're a mindless walking penis. Personally, I think the whole "sexy monster girl"-genre has been done to death, especially by series where characters are basically defined by a holy trifecta of sex...

Sessions expiring while composing a post has always been a thing, though it's possible some of the measures we've taken in response may have had some inadvertent effects on sessions. I've had to answer the "captcha" as part of logging in a couple of times following the recent changes. I'm...

Unfortunately the comic is inaccurate. A gas mask won't protect you unless it is rated for NBC hazards. :sniffle:

Dumbass of the day: If I'm exposing some goods at a model convention, and you mumble something to me which I don't understand, don't go explicitly miming a 4chan meme to me before telling me I should stop "looking cool" by building Japanese scale models when the meme concerned originates i...

Re: These Moons Were Made For Walking (Weird Image Thread 8)

I don't get it.

The fire went out?

Or is there an image missing showing Ron as a newly created little heap of ash?
