A few things on the Ayakashi Sisters, both in the original anime and in the dub. First, why in the name of all that is sacred did the creators of the anime have to change their interests? They're called the Ayakashi Sisters for a reason, and that was because they were into "weird" stuff, like UFOs, ...

Raising this thread from the depths... I had heard tidbits here and there about this game, but hadn't thought about it until I saw the link to the game's main page in another forum. I've always enjoyed adventure games like King's Quest 1-7 (8 was an abomination, IMHO. I thought it tried too hard to ...

(DISCLAIMER: I'm no expert on this, no matter how I might sound. Anything I say is not meant to offend anyone.) I agree with you, Tiff. Bullying may have a hand in some of these school shootings (especially in younger kids), but it is hardly a concrete cause of these shootings. It's one piece in the...

Getting back on topic (and hopefully staying there this time...). So I adore flowers, since my family always had a garden as I was growing up. I also see them a lot as I intern in the hospital when I walk into patients' rooms. So, for the hell of it, I popped onto ProFlowers.com to poke around, and ...

D: Fanservice is bad now? Maybe because it is fantasy, and RL women don't wear those? Like said before, it appeals to the men. My favorite gaming charater is Mai Shiranui, and, she wears all of 5 square inches of clothing, yet she still kicks ass, and is a strong woman! Just because someone is DRES...

I agree on the whole cheating thing, I never got that either. Both of you have made your points better than I could, so I'll leave that with a solid "I concur". On the topic of female vs. male career paths, much of it is Sociological in nature. Even with all the advances our society has made in the ...

I wasn't sure if there was a better home for this post, so bear with me. (And if there is, point me to it and I'll repost it there.) The "typical" double-standard toward women in video games aside, I noticed something with one of my favorite RPGs when I was playing it a while back. Why is it if you ...

Gandhi grandson resigns after anti-Semitic remarks

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080125/ap_on_re_us/gandhi_peace_center Personally, I think the delivery of his statements left a lot to be desired, but I don't sense any sort of bigotry or anti-Semitism behind them. Rather, it seems to me that he's attempting to understand why the violence in the areas...

Being someone with a medical background and career interest, I wonder if it wasn't a case of someone building up a significant tolerance to the drugs. I know I've had similar happen with Tylenol in the past; I used to have to take 3-4 in order to get the same relief that 2 used to give me. From what...

I've thought of two more annoyances today: 1) This only seems to happen to me online. Say I've had a really bad day. Maybe I had something happen, maybe it's just the culmination of a bad week...whatever. So I put up a rant/venting thread in a forum I frequent to blow off some steam. What starts to ...

I do see all your points, SoV. I didn't mean to come across as being hard solely on Blacks. It really bothers me that any race behaves in that manner, not just whites or blacks.

well, i say that he is a bigot because of the comment he made against Mitt Romney and his religion. the thing is, the Tilghman comment was made in bad taste but it wasn't meant to be racist. Tiger Woods even said that it didn't bother him. Lynching wasn't only used against African Americans. it was...

I haven't seen most of the dub in a long time, nor do I really want to. But from what you guys are saying, it's disgusting how the writers made characters meaner than they actually are. They probably only did it because they wanted to be funny/witty. -_-;; But now that I think about it, when I was ...

The fashion and fashion magazine industries earn my vote as holding the biggest double standards with regard to women. The magazines (Cosmo, Glamour, etc) all have the overriding "girl power, OMG, you can do anything, love yourself the way you are!!!!" theme, yet what do you see when you look at the...

I know all that, but I was saying that in the context that DiC were only trying to cover their asses.

They also changed the entire scene in that episode in season one where Sa...
