Has science gone TOO FAR?
For us ‘strayans sure, but people from other countries might not realise this isn’t all that much of an exaggeration.
Ya stupid li’l cunt. Fuckin’ this is ’straya mate.
Super Smash in real life.
You laugh, but people like this are actually kind of common, depending on where you live.
I’m really feeling fate!
I was referring to the things he really HAS said, not this. For example, Charlie Hebdo’s drawing was a mistake, etc. Miyazaki has commented on a lot of these recent years, and I often find myself disagreeing with him.
Back in my day, stage 2s, especially something like DUSTOX, wouldn’t have anything near that HP.
Meh. This is a pretty unpopular opinion from me, but I never liked Miyazaki that much, or his opinions on anime as well as politics and international matters.
I mean, his movies aren’t bad (some of them, anyway), but I really don’t see them as the super deep, meaningful commentaries on life that his fans seem to go on and on about. It’s funny how people complain about otaku-bait moefests, but don’t even know stuff like Shinsekai Yori exists.
And uhhhh… I’m going to step into the shitstorm that is “SnK/AoT is/isn’t overrated”. Yes, my belief is that it is overrated. Which, I hasten to add, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad. But I mean, how many people who read it know that it’s heavily inspired off the visual novel Muv-luv Alternative, a damned fucking good story? It’s debatable, but I’m fairly certain anyone who’s experienced both will say MLA is a better. But how many people outside visual novel communities even know it exists compared to SnK/AoT? Not a lot, that’s for sure. So yeah, I think it’s overrated given how well-known it is compared to others.
I’m gonna get downvoted for saying that, aren’t I…
Let me guess, an anime con-goer loses track of reality and starts stabbing people with a kunai. Or some horny teenager starts “accidentally” falling onto girls and groping their oversized breasts.
Have any popcorn to share?
OOH OOH WAIFU WARS!
Senri Akane, from the VN Rewrite:
Maybe we should add a small section about waifu wars? You know, when threads get completely derailed because of one off-handed mention about someone’s waifu, and then the “your waifu is shit; here’s mine” inevitably follows, leading to something akin to someone shouting “FOOD FIGHT!” in a busy cafeteria.
Let me try:
Eh, not really. I’m not saying everything taught in schools should be 100% free from political agendas – that’s virtually impossible. All I’m saying is that things that are taught shouldn’t ever be viewed as unshakable truths “just because the teacher/textbook said so”. It’s okay to believe something is right, but that should be because it sounds reasonable to you and other facts support it, not just because it came from someone’s mouth. And open-mindedness is equally important; kids should be taught that’s it’s okay to go back on prior beliefs when new evidence has come to light rather than doggedly sticking to a belief that no longer holds any water. I’m quite certain kids can handle all this.
Education should be about teaching kids to think critically and allowing them to make up their own minds on issues based on the evidence. Not this politcal agenda-pushing bullshit. That’s indoctrination, not education.
If I were this guy’s girlfriend, I’d be seriously less than impressed. What an ass.
I… believe this is a repost?
In other news: Objectivity in a courtroom simply leads to more false convictions.
Isn’t that kinda how the Yu-Gi-Oh universe works?
