Edit:
Okay, so I just realised you mentioned subjunctive mood in your post. So here's a more specific link for you:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subjunc...s_a_hypothesis
Hehe, thanks. So subjunctive mood is something contrary to the fact... so if I were (correct, right?) to write this:

If I were Yuji Sakai, I would feel very happy
It would be were

But if I were to write this:

The sky is blue if it was black.
Then it would be was.

Am I correct?

English is Subject Verb Object

written is a verb, wrong is an adjective in this case and not a noun, and in this case we have an unidentified noun because the sentence is incomplete.

From what I would say normally, it would be "written wrong", cause for me english just just doesn't sound correct like that.

ex. The paper was written wrong.
ex2. The paper was wrong written.

Well, I just checked and "written" would either have to be verb or adjective
So in the case of "The paper was wrong written," it would either be

Subject Verb Adjective Adjective.
Subject Verb Adjective Verb.
Subject Verb Noun Adjective.
Subject Verb Noun Verb.

Which one would it be if it's correct?

Actually... wouldn't be "The paper was wrongly written" be more accurate?


Anyway... a couple of other questions:
I'm looking for a book to read, one that's about computer (for beginner/intermediate) or one that teaches and provides instructions on how to build electronic stuffs, what book would you suggest? (preferably but not required if I can buy it at Borders)

Nvm if that question isn't very legitimate ... (since it's more about asking for recommendation)

This is about image editing, but when doing a render, what would be a good way to extract a background while preserving a one (maybe two)-pixel line (i.e. hair)? I notice I usually still get remnant of extracted backgrounds left

Who is the oldest age and youngest age of the members of AS? The other day I saw someone with a profile of 100 year old...

This is the Internet, anyone can claim to be any age the s/w allows them to claim. Clearly the 100 years old is a joke, as is the user who claims to be 1 year old.

But this is the wrong place to ask. If you really want to know the claimed ages then please search for the "How Old Are You" thread.

Going medieval on a bullet proof vest.

It's been bothering me for a while. Can a bullet proof vest protect it's wearer against a sword/knife or other similar weapons?
If the vest can stop almost any bullet, it seems logical that a sword would have no chance. But a small part of my mind doubts that.
So, can anyone, who has deeper knowledge in these sort of things, enlighten me?

For the most part no, not your run of the mill bullet proof vest.

With ceramic or armor inserts they can and slash resistant kevlar yes (but slash resistant kevlar still fails to stop stabs)

a small snippet from wikipedia
Quote:
Most vests offer little protection against arrows, ice picks, stabbing knife blows, bullets with their points sharpened or armor-piercing rounds. As the force is concentrated in a relatively small area with bladed weapons and armor-piercing rounds, they can push through the weave of most bullet-resistant fabrics. Specially-designed vests which protect against bladed weapons and sharp objects are often used in vests for prison guards and other law enforcement officers. Some materials like Dyneema offer considerable protection against bladed weapons and slash attacks.

Now if a a show is not licensed and it's not subbed, then which section of the forum does it go? Does it go to the unaired section because I trying to make a Raijinoh thread but so far nobody subbed it and it's not licensed.

It goes in the Unaired forum (since it includes unaired and unfansubbed series).

Has the series aired yet?
No - Thread belongs in the Unaired forum
Yes - Go to next question

Unaired
Forum for discussing anime that haven't aired yet or haven't been fansubbed yet.

http://www.nlectc.org/BatPro/

Offers you a database of tested body armor of different levels of balistic and stab protection. Usually stab protection won't protect against ballistic and vice versa.
The main reason is speed. A bullet will impact at very high speeds, causing a short but extremely intensive impact. Material against balistics tries to spread/consume the impact energy through elastic deformation. For armor piercing bullets ceramics/aramid is used (similar to composit armor on battle tanks, I am not sure if there is already some reactive body armor out there, I doubt it though). Stabbing weapons have a rather slow impact speed. So these weapons can provide high levels of penetration energy for longer timespans. So the material should not be brittle (ceramics) or supple (kevlar/aramid).

Here's a question that I've recently been wondering about. I'd like to share some of my digital photography with the forum and receive feedback about style and technique. I should probably go to a forum dedicated to digital photography, but I'm pretty attached to this one and don't really care to be going between multiple forums. So here's the question - I initially made a post about it in the tech support forum as it is somewhat a technical issue (or at the least, it deals with technology), but would it be better off and would it be acceptable to start a thread about it in the fan creations forum? It's not anime art but I suppose that it is technically a fan creation, and reading over the forum rules it seems that the forum does not discriminate against non-anime subject material and it is designed for giving artists feedback from people.

I would probably recommend you try deviantart first and try here after you have posted your photos there, and link your account from there to here in your signature and other forums you go to.

That I think is the best way.

Starting a thread in the Fan Creation forum would be acceptable. Another would be that if you can justify a reason for a Digital Photography thread (different in purpose to the one Jinto Lin mentioned above), then create it in the General Chat forum.

As mentioned, there would have to be a good reason why it requires a separate thread but as far as I can see the Photographs thread is for posting and commenting on the photographs themselves, would a digital photography thread require more of a technical discussion than just "here are my pictures"? If you just wanted to make a personal "Here are my pictures" thread then Fan Creations would be better suited but if you wanted to expand the topic to discussion about digital photography as well as the visual result, then a thread in General Chat would be OK. If so, just make sure the opening posts defines the purpose of the thread well enough.

IIRC correctly, ChibiDusk once made a thread on FC subforum regarding his none anime artwork ( mostly abstract art ) using Photoshop .. So I dont think its such a bad idea too.

I hadn't realized that we had a photography thread - thank you Jinto Lin for linking to it. That thread certainly covers my desire to share my pictures, although there seems to be very little discussion about technique and the pictures themselves. Since it's acceptable, I may create my own thread in the fan creations section for images that I would like feedback on, and help to keep the photography thread alive with other pictures.

As to whether digital photography would require a separate thread, I don't think so. If people were having highly technical discussions about the cameras and the technology, then it probably would. Most people these days are using digital cameras, so I don't think that there'd be an issue even then.

That may be the best idea for receiving fully artsy commentary. I do actually have a DeviantArt account that I used while I was actively doing 3D render art. I'd have to see if DeviantArt changed their policies, but it makes me uneasy for photos - their policy was basically that they owned whatever you uploaded to them. For 3D it was fine, as the images are just an output. Your 3D models were what was really important. DeviantArt wouldn't get your models just because you uploaded a picture using them. With a photo, it's a bit different. Still, I'll consider it. Thank you for the idea!

Is that true? Deviantart owns all that is uploaded their site? I don't remember reading that. Can you spare me a link? I couldn't really find it on their faqs.
