Sorry there, i actually chose it quite randomly xD (a strong and a much weaker country; if i put US and a Middle East country for example, then it will sound too serious ^^)

I actually was thinking about the APEC incidence when that question sparked in my mind. I means there are always human errors now and then, and in an age where weapons are so devastating that a small event can spark WW3, there should be some ways to settle such and such problems where all sides can be happy about...

I don't think there's a blanket policy as such that would work in that type of situation. It would really depend on the circumstances, and most importantly the country's foreign/defense policies. In fact, this type of thing has happened before, a good example would be Rajiv Gandhi, who was in fact the Prime Minister of India at the time, and was assasinated by a suicide bomber who was known to be from the LTTE - and ( which is really kind of sad ) not very much was done about it at all. Really, the subcontinent is a good place to start if you want to see how these things can ( its always handled rather poorly in the area in my opinion, for example, in this case, there should have been some very direct action taken) play out these days.

As to your second question, I would imagine so. If ( for whatever hypothetical reason) a tiny country lost a leader directly because any of the countries on say, the permanent security council, I highly doubt anything much would come of it.

WW3 puhhh... The great countries won't allow a 3rd world war to happen.
I read this too often and how many contents anime are happening after WW3, it is really scary. As if the manhood would wish for it.

tea doesn't lol I've been drinking tea daily for breakfast ever since I was what, 5 years old lol and I did grow quite tall ha ha
coffee, it depends if you are fully grown or not, I wouldn't give a 14 year old coffee not because of what you've said but because I wouldn't want them to caffeine rush, which isn't good yet since their brain is still developing and would most likely have more effect on that rather than your grow speed. I was always taught tea is for everyone, coffee is for grownups, though I don't like it anyway so I don't drink it
but a 17 year old enjoying a cup of coffee and not drinking 3-4 a day is not bad IMO, but then again I'm no doctor

@Frailty: i don't think coffee will affect height grow, but it's not as healthy so most ppl recommend you not to...
It may indirectly affect height growth through (for example: coffee=>affect your biological clock=> uneasy sleep => affect height growth...)

Also, yeah the manga is Medaka Box



Btw, i have a weird fetish of liking completely overpowered characters (super bonus if it's a girl, a cute or cool one would be extra bonus as well)..... is there any moe type fit that type of fetish? xD

The "I Am Your Master Rawr!" tsundere? That's the best I can think up.

Komari's question: I've been seeing this little white thing around the Internet a lot. He/It's small, white, and looks a lot like Mashimaro, but he opens his eyes sometimes. There's various GIFs of him; one in particular that I'm looking for is one where he has a face and is giving a big thumbs-up.
It's the guy who's in this pic:

If you know him, please tell me his name!

^Not sure what picture you are trying to find, but I think he's called "Onion." Google "Onion Head," "Onion Avatar," or something equivalent.

In terms of the caffeine thing its a total myth, as is not eating your fruits and vegetables. I've been drinking coffee since I was about 4, never really ate fruits or vegetables, got really hooked on coffee when I was about 14 and I still ended up 6'2".

As for the whole assassination thing, this isn't 1914 and nothing will ever happen like Franz Ferdinand again, it wouldn't cause WWIII because unlike in WWI there are no intertwining alliances like there used to be. Germany as a government would not be held responsible for his death any more than the police in NYC are responsible for a random murder.

I agree the coffee thing is a myth, I drank coffee alot as a kid and I grew to a reasonable height. But I'm not a good source since coffee, energy drinks, and tea all make me sleepy instead of hyper(if I drink to much earl grey I get shakey).

I have a question though, I've been wondering about this for some time but you know when like a dude sees a really cute girl in an anime and he gets a nose bleed? Why does that happen? Never in my entire life have I ever witnessed someone having a nose bleed from arousal.

This doesn't actually happen, the idea is that when you get aroused you get hotheaded and all the blood rushes to your head (this doesn't actually happen, it rushes to other places) but its just a visual way of showing that they're aroused.

People do get nosebleeds from suffering anemia, though.

People also don't actually get storm clouds, lightning bolts, or auras of blackness but those are other visual clues anime uses to portray feelings Nosebleeds and sweatdrops are the same sort of visual cues.

That is so very true despite how ironic it is. You have low red blood cell count loose some blood now to make it worse!
