    That's good, taking a pro-active stance on things.

    It's a great double-edged sword. On the one hand, you can always find something new to immersive yourself in, something new to study or learn about, but on the other hand, it can be a little sad to think about the 99.9% of stuff (and that's just stuff on our tiny planet) you'll never get a chance to learn about during your short life. I guess the vastness of it all scares a lot of people too, and that makes it even more tempting to just accept dogma or easy half-truths and leave it at that.

    Ah, I'm pretty much the same way there. When I'm unsure of the cause of the delay or whatever other issue, I am always hesitant to complain. After all, it's possible that they're working their ass off and are understaffed or something. If I had to wait as long as you, almost three hours in total, I'd undoubtedly at least inquire about my order. I'd start off with something innocuous and be polite about it, just to check if they'd forgotten it or something.

    Talk about polar opposites there, yeah. You need a lot of patience to be a parent, especially if you've got a naturally noisy or energetic child. I understand that people sometimes snap, but it's not a pretty sight. And of course, a lot of people are just plain unfit parents, unfortunately.

    Sounds like a cool outlet for your thoughts. I've never blogged in my life, I just wouldn't know what to write I guess. Is it going to be focused on anime, your life, a little bit of everything or?

    Ah, yeah, that sort of stuff does happen. Nice of you to stay and help out. I've never worked a 13-hour day in my life, I believe, so major kudos.

    I don't think you're suppressing it at all at this point. You're actually seeking out people to make reparations to. You're as far away from suppression as you can possibly get.

    I think that's a very good point. Once your confidence turns to arrogance, you stop improving. After all, you don't actually believe that you need to improve, because you're already so good/knowledgeable/smart. Sort of goes back to the simple explanations meme we discussed a few days ago. When you think got something figured out, the learning process stops, and that's a big problem if you're fundamentally wrong.

    Yeah, the intent behind it is what determines everything. It gets bad when they (whether this is something they actually think, or just something that is implicit in their actions) don't respect the fact that they're wasting your time. If the reason he's late is because he just had to play another match of Starcraft or something, then that's obviously pretty rude.

    I get your point with the analogy. Like the child, a mere acknowledgment goes a long way. Just a little nod to know you're not being purposefully ignored. Which can feel like you're being looked down upon; as if you're not worth addressing.

    I don't know man... looks like the stars are aligning; too many coincidences! Good luck on your blog, I'll have to check that out sometime.

    Just a small edit. 13 hours!? You're a trooper, man.

    Nah bro... Too much of that stuff can get inta ya head bru! Lol I can't do it Have no idea what your gettin' inta bru! (Really I can't do it!! XD)

    Uhhuh... True that... They even have a range from the most thrilling to the most subtle ^^ Really good music there Uh ok... There aren't many games that have those types of atmospheres I suppose... Guess I'll just watch walkthroughs about it Eh really? How so?

    Haha oops!! My apologies!! HAHAHA!!! *nosebleed*

    Yeah it indeed is a bit of a pity... Wish they would just start with the Kami Nomi Translations and all us fans would be happy Hm... maybe naruto? (Jokes!!) To be honest, I didn't really like the one-shot, the art was say.. a bit weird... maybe because I read the main manga before the one-shot But yeah.. It was one heck of an increase of popularity just from one one-shot ^^

    It's probably not healthy in the long term, but sometimes, suppression can feel like (and perhaps in fact be) the best option for the time being. As long as you come to terms with it eventually, I look at it as the difference between taking a vacation and quitting working altogether.

    That sounds like a fun exercise. Good thing you did well there, good confirmation that what you've got is more than just a hunch. I've actually read a scientific paper about a study some time back examining that very subject. The results were pretty scary. There's an inverse correlation between thinking you can read people well, and actually being able to successfully do so. The people who said they though they were good at reading people generally scored below average on the test, while those who were more unsure of their ability generally scored higher.

    Some people are just unreliable in general, which does imply that they're not too cornered with others, but I guess they could just be bad with time, like some people are naturally clumsy. A phone call should be easy to managed either way, though. I don't run into that one too often, but yeah, just plain ignoring someone when they're talking to you is the height of rudeness, no doubt about that. It's incredibly condescending.

    Sleep got the better off me once again by the way. Guess that's what happens when you type from your comfy bed.

    Thanks, that's very kind of you to say. Only you know whether you were really that troubled back then I suppose (and memories can be fuzzy), but if you've made a complete 180 and come out a better person for it, that's all the matters. More people than you'd think look back at a lot of their school years and feel like it was a whole bunch of rubbish, but on the other hand, a lot of people get incredibly nostalgic and romanticize their school years. (Look no further than anime for countless examples of stuff catering to that crowd.)

    Sounds like you're quite the shrewd customer. You'd probably make a great cop. Or con-man. :P

    Not at all, I'm just trying to make myself clear and not give you the wrong impression; sometimes I can be a bit imprecise, and as I'm sure we all experience, sometimes what you type made perfect sense in your head, but was a little more ambiguous on paper.

    It is rather rude. This guy's alright though, I know he's just a little bit of a slowpoke sometimes. I got this other guy who will just literally not show up sometimes. Now that is just plain unacceptable. He's the kind of guy who if he says "Yes" it really means "Maybe", and if he says "Maybe" it means "No."

    I don't think there's anything hypocritical about that. Quite the opposite. Nobody is perfect, and everyone has done something mean or thoughtless at some point, especially when we're young. Realizing that, growing past it, and most importantly; admitting that it was wrong to do, is the opposite of hypocrisy; it is to mature and become a better person. Hypocrites never stop doing it.

    I guess working there makes you a pretty good judge of character. It's funny how small ticks like that give it away when you know what you're looking for. I've heard similar things from courses in how to spot shoplifters; there's subtle signs that very many of them give away without knowing it, and if you know how to spot them, it goes a long way in catching them red-handed. I don't want to over-state the case at all, it's not horrible living here, and there's not rapists at every corner. But I just think it's sad that in this supposedly socialist state, people can't venture out after dark because it's too dangerous. Haven't seen a damn policeman on the streets.... ever. It's easier for me, I'm male, so there's less to fear from the usual suspects. At worst I'll get mugged. Though getting asked if I want to buy drugs gets old real fast... especially when it's twice just from going down to the corner-store. -_-
    I phrased myself poorly last time too. What I meant wasn't that drug-dealers were just being bystanders to rape (though that wouldn't surprise me), but that constantly having people standing on the corners waiting for customers is another reason it's a little uncomfortable walking the streets after dark there.

    Oh, not at all. I wanted to respond. The guy I was meeting ended up being almost a half hour late anyway. Prick. :P

    Umhm, I totally agree with that... It's something all us young peeps need Uh ok... That's reasonable enough ^^

    Haha I gotta agree... Just listened to some BGM's/OST's from Ocarina of Time and I gotta say it's fantastic!! Hm... I've been hearing good things about Wind Maker... What makes it so uh? Treasure like?

    Haha especially when she's so innocent and shy in her acting ^^ Especially these memorable quotes... "Aho!...". "Baka!!"

    Um... Not that I know of... Kami nomi has no confirmation or license as far as I know... But yeah.. Better to have storyline than fillers... ^^

    They certainly are. They're just easy ways to label and dismiss someone, often without even realizing what it is you're accusing them of; just that it's bad.

    Heh, yeah. I've been stopped quite a few times and asked to buy beer or cigarettes for kids too, naturally I don't do it. I have trouble even listening to or reading about rape and/or pedophile crimes... it's just one of those things that makes me question humanity's right to even exist. My mother just moved, and my sisters can't even go over there after dark because it's such a bad neighborhood and the lighting at night is too poor. There was an actual assault rape there just a few weeks ago, and people stand there on the corners slinging dope. Pretty messed up.

    I'd write more, but I got to run, just barely had time to finish this. I'll hit you up with some more of this dark, depressive stuff later.

    Yeah... just when I think that people might be alright, some inane insult reminds me just how silly people can be. If someone calls me "girly" or "homo", I just laugh. The very fact that they think that kind of stuff would insult me is just amusing.

    Personally, I'm not too concerned with how people dress, anything is fine with me. The only exception, and you brought it up yourself, is kids. It's pretty creepy to see a girl that young dressing provocatively. Of course, looking at the rising rape statistics, I'd wish all girls would be a little more aware of that, not just young ones. (And obviously, all the responsibility lies with the rapist, not the victim, I'm just saying I wish people would be a little more careful given the very horrible reality they're faced with.) With the advent of the internet, a whole new element is added to that, in that a young girl can easily just go online, and there will be a whole horde of degenerates giving her all the attention she could ever dream of for wearing those kinds of clothes. That, I think, is a dangerous development. (And let's not even get into how popularity has become even more vapid a thing now that you can become famous for absolutely anything; the stupider, the better.)

    I try to stay positive about people; I really do. But I see a lot of people who just lack any sort of common decency at all. There's always a group of people yelling like the cart was on fire when I'm any public transportation, and if it's a weekend... oh boy. But now and then there's a jewel in the rough, like last month, I dropped a 200 kr bill (around 30 dollars), and some guy chased after me and gave it back. That's really uplifting. But they're few and far in between. :P

    Overall, though, society today is pretty damn good considering the precedent. But there's still a lot of work to be done, and new problems that arise with new attitudes and technologies.

    Oh, I agree. I hate it when people just grab your phone or something and start looking at it. Doesn't really happen to me anymore, but it used to happen a lot when I was younger, and it is so annoying.

    It is, but you got to take into account that it's only sell it at a 7-11-like store. Which charges almost twice the price of a supermarket for just about everything already.

    They definitely have. There's a huge, huge sense of entitlement today. And taking things for granted. After all, almost no one from this generation has had to fight, or do anything at all, for their rights and freedoms. A lot of them don't understand or appreciate what was sacrificed to create the status-quo, or how easily it can shatter.
