Thanks for clarifications, guys. As I've never been to New York I don't have personal experience about the system there and I overreacted. I'd just read about frankly infantilizing Yes means Yes legislation passing in Connecticut * and the headline of article Squig posted made me assume ...

Xard, these rules aren't new. It's a rule of thumb: when you're on public transportation, you don't take up more than one seat. It's a dick move and it inconveniences people who might actually want that seat. To hear you talk, it sounds as if somebody taking up two seats doesn&#...

Alternatively, it's because it's written in the MTA code that you can't take up more than one seat! Simple, innit? Also, for what it's worth, that post sounds like... hmm, let me find the quote... Probably irrelevant since, uhh, "man-spread shamers" have been having countl...

I have this feeling, and I expect this to be reasonably uncontroversial, that the Golden Age of Anime is 14* (exceptions for those who weren't into the form at that age). *Also true for science fiction and rock'n'roll. Quite so. I'm just very happy I lucked out and ended up ...

In addition to Eva, Utena, and Bebop, there were also Please save my earth, Pet shop of Horrors, Escaflowne, Basara, Key the Metal Idol, Yami no Matsuei, Ranma 1/2 and even Getbackers (yes, well-done shounen comedy series can have good character writing too). I've seen almost all of tho...

And yes, I'm aware that I know way too much about 80's Euro Pop, but we all have our guilty pleasures. It's the most delicious slice of cheese. As fara s cheese goes 80's Euro Pop isn't that righteously guilty inducing cheese. Now if you said you were obsessed with 90s Eurodance...

Don't know if this is controversial or not, but I find that 90s anime - I'm talking about the ones commonly rated as being good - tend to have superior character writing when compared to even the best of what we have today. That's like what, Eva, Utena and maybe Bebop? That's far to...

The contrast between Astley's booming voice and his build is what has always amused me the most about Rickrolling. Song is pretty tasty slice of cheese for sure and that voice is rather impressive. Thank you based USA. There is that sweet satisfaction seeing corrupt FIFA assholes getting dragged...

Well I finished Night on the Galactic Railroad . I enjoyed the style, and the extended farewell aspect of the journey; but in the end the religious content spoiled it for me. The film as a whole came over as proselytising, which I don't want; and as Mr. Tines hinted, the religious viewpoint is ...
