Answer would probably be... that it depends on the government in question... As a United States citizen myself... I would have to say that such a measure would likely be struck down as "unconstitutional". However, from what I see about governments in general is that they can pass any law they want as long as the law approval process is followed... whether those laws will "stand" or not is another matter entirely...

As to whether they SHOULD use this "clean feed" system... I do not think that it would be the correct choice, as I feel that it should be up to the individual to decide what content they view... not the government to decide what an individual views. Thus, if I did live in Australia, I would oppose this measure.

It might help if you explained in what context you want the answer I'll assume you just want a basic explanation when the term is used with fansubs.

A simple explanation is that hardsubs "burn" the subtitles into the video, they are part of the image for each frame. Softsubs "overlay" the subtitles onto the video and therefore can be turned off, you can also offer multiple subtitles (i.e. different languages) and the viewer can select which (if any) to display.

We've started using the terms hardsub and softsub on the AnimeSuki listings. In this context we are using it as shorthand to mean "h264 and mkv = softsub" and "h264 and mp4 = hardsub".

I would like to elaborate on what xris said, basically a "hardsub" is "always on", while a "soft sub" can be on or off... See also closed captioning and this "blog".

Question if I am asking for a suggestion about a video game, should I post it in the suggestions forum or the games forum?

Oh, I always figured it was short for 'Mac'.

Hence, I would read that as MacCain.

Am I wrong?

"Mc" is a Gaelic ancestral name which means "son of". "Mac" means the same thing. So John is son of Cain. Cain and Abel were the first children of Adam and Eve born after the Fall of Man; Cain killed Abel out of jealousy and was exiled by God. So don't vote for him. ^_^

Similarly in Russia (Romanov/Ivanova) and some Slavic countries (suffixes "-ić" and "-ović" for the last name) also denote son of.

Hmm I thought bin was part of the name, so I never thought about it
And sometimes is racism not rasicm at all, just change the angle of view.

Generically you're probably thinking of a tailcoat; but the answer could be any number of things depending on the context, formality, and historical period being considered.

Could it be possible for a heavy weight lifter etc. to rip somebody's jaw off of their face?

I mean grab their upper and lower teeth and just rip it away? What kinda power would that reguire? And give him some steel enforced gloves too.

There are conditions where the jaw decays, and in some cases it happens naturally with age. So the answer is yes, it is possible, and the strength of the person doing the ripping would depend on how solid the reciptient's jaw muscles and bone are.

Ohh yeah biting muscles, it'd be impossible...

Well a surprise attack could do the trick too...

Nobody would want to do that to some old grandpas

I've seen this face used a lot in illustrations and suches but I've never actually researched or even know what this facial expression is called.



Other than delightfully happy, ^^
