Re: FML general thread [8]

Finally got a job, and I like the work itself, but they've loaded way too many hours onto me and I simply can't adapt / recover quickly enough. Graveyard shift, on my feet for most of 9 hours, physically demanding (not compared to construction work, maybe, but compared to NEETdom, oh yeah). The big...

Re: Your favourite phallus

I should really post a picture of the main piece of the Shamshel (classic) resin kit by Hobby Shop Rettpu next to a ruler. The kit allows you to build Shamshel in relaxed and erect state, and for some reason it is sized like a slightly oversized human penis...

Re: Adam's wings spreading sound effect is the same as sounds of Saturn and the dark side of the Moon

It's a stock sound effect, dating back to at least 1990: https://soundideas.sourceaudio.com/#!details?id=11474413 Which probably means it is available on sound collections for (professional audio) samplers, although it could also have been generated on a synthesizer on the spot by whoever did the s...

Another death in hospital is also reported, bringing the toll to 35. Server recovery successful: https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20190730/p2a/...

Re: FML general thread [8]

Not a FML per se, but just something I need to post because it gave me a "Oh Gods..."-moment: Just read in the media that an ex-colleague (that I rather liked) died by drowning in a storm while on holiday ;_;

RIP

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Genuinely surprised they didn't share the movie's full title tonight. Figured tonight would have been the moment. Very curious if they're holding on to that for later or if the English "You Something (Not) Something" is added late in the game. If the ALL-CAPS words on the second poster ar...

Re: "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 AVANT 1 (from beginning to 10:40) Version 0706" discussion and prediction thread

So, to be honest, I don't get the complaints about the French subs being weird. They are slightly formal, but not wrong by themselves. Now my French is mostly based on 1980s/1990s French, and I am fairly out of touch with current popular speech. Sure, I know about Verlan etc., can usually deduct wha...

Re: "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 AVANT 1 (from beginning to 10:40) Version 0706" discussion and prediction thread

2/ The exact line in French is "La fin couronne le travail", which means "The end crowns the work", it's not a phrase used in France, but after a quick research, it seems to be a translation of the latin phrase “Finis Coronat Opus”, traditionally attributed to the Roman poet Ovi...

That might the most over the top thing I've ever seen in EVA, utter madness :w00t: . I was fairly confident that the tower in the poster was Tokyo Tower, but it was it's "older sibling" as it turns out, but Paris looked really good. And now to slip into anxiety as I have to wait another y...
