    Hehe yeah, got to take pleasure in not having any horrible injuries that would leave us with huge handicaps I guess. Normal fillings are thankfully not a big deal at all. But yeah, always get anesthesia, no reason not to unless you're allergic. A friend of mine didn't once, and he regretted it pretty quickly. :P

    Ah, then you got really far. Maybe I'll try it some time. If I'm ever in the mood to break my controller.

    You didn't mention that before, no. That's incredibly patient. I usually either drop something very quickly, within the first two episodes, or stick with it to the end. I hate dropping something halfway in, then I feel like I've wasted my time, so I might as well finish it. Hence why I tend to drop things early.

    I hope that in the future, when we're all androids, there will be an app to change your voice to whomever's you want. Then we won't have to go through all that kidnapping and grotesque surgery.

    Yeah, nothing that gave me any real lasting injuries, really. A few small scars, s'all. That does sound like a very unpleasant experience. I don't remember anything from when I was 2 years old, not a damn thing, so maybe something terrible happened to me too. :P I've had some experiences that people hype as extremely painful, like a root canal, but it wasn't all that bad actually. Intense pain for maybe 10 seconds, the rest is a breeze. Unless you're very squeamish, because what you see them do looks very painful and brutal, but you don't really feel it.

    I don't really have any perspective on that, having never played battletoads, but congrats, you must've not lost your touch!

    Oh, it depends on how they initially effect me as well, which comes down to a combination of all of the traits mentioned and many more. If I despise something when I watch the first episode, I'm not going to continue to see if it gets better. I don't have the patience for a three-episode treatment or anything like that.

    Yeah... it's best not to think about it, lest envy overtake you and drive you mad with homicidal rage.

    I've had a lot of (physically) painful experiences, and I think it's very strange not to fear that. That being said, of course it won't do you any good to go around thinking about it all the time, that'll drive you nuts.

    Yeah, we'll settle for that; better than nothing. The Soviet national anthem is inspirational, I find. I guess I can see where you're coming from, but I love it, those guys could write a song. :P

    Well yeah, that's pretty much my view. Gaming ain't too good to those who enjoy neither FPS nor God of War-like action games these days.

    There's a big difference between art-style and animation. The former can turn me away from something, while the latter almost never can. But if something has an art-style you just don't find appealing, that can be a big hindrance when it comes to enjoying a show. Luckily, I'm open to *most* styles, so that's not a big problem either.

    When I hear Norio Wakamoto speak, it's not even a character. It's just him. He transcends the concept of character and series and just shows up as himself everywhere he wants. I've called him "the Clint Eastwood of anime" before, and I stand by that. Man, the things I would do to get his voice.

    People who aren't afraid of pain? Sounds a little hard to believe if they've actually experienced real pain before, but I guess there are some people who are just 100% fright-free.

    Yeah, live shows are nice, although it's still nothing like being there yourself. In fact, it might just make you even more envious of those bastards you see who did make it there.

    Soviet Union, huh. That's something, I hope they bring back their national anthem... it kicks all kinds of ass.

    It's good that there are still enough people to make up a market for old-school style platformers. That's the kind of stuff that could actually convince me to buy a game again.

    I'm extremely lenient when it comes to animation. It almost never bothers me, and often I'm so bad at judging it that I don't even notice anyway. Of course it's even better when the animation is stellar and just makes your eyes turn into shimmering stars when you watch (it can happen, scientific fact.) I'm enjoying the series a lot at the moment. The characters are very strong, and a serious plot without annoying/distracting comic relief is something that anime is sorely short on these days, so I'm happy with the direction it's taking. I love how crazy some of the characters are too. You know who I'm mainly talking about, no doubt.
    Those post-show scenes are pretty weird. It's something I see a lot in anime, unusual mixing of moods and genres. Sometimes it works, but sometimes it can really break the mood and stick out like a sore thumb, leaving you frustrated. I don't have any strong opinions either way in this case. I could easily do without them, but they don't really bother me yet either. I think that if I were marathoning the show, they would bother me, but because I wait a week or more between each installment, they fade into the background in the meantime.

    Also, Norio Wakamoto as God... most appropriate casting choice EVER.

    Yeah. Sounds like something out of a horror movie, but apparently it's real. At least for Tasmanian Devils. Pain and death, who isn't bad with those things. >_<

    There are a bunch of artists that I got into way too late as well, some of them dead, and a lot of them retired. It sucks, but at least you'll always have the music, and I'll take comfort in that as much as I can.

    Why did I open my big fat mouth? I should have known this thing went above and beyond just you. Now I've doomed an entire country to extinction. Oh well, whatever, let's see what else is on my harddrive....

    Ah, I saw a review of Super Mario Land on Gametrailers. It looked pretty cool and innovative, yet old-school in style. Never been a Mario-fan due to availability (although I played a lot of Mario 64 at a friend), but those are the kinds of games I can really appreciate. I saw a new 2d Rayman game came out as well.... that's actually really tempting. The original Rayman was a definite favorite on the Playstation, but I haven't touched the franchise since.

    How are you liking Mirai Nikki? I'm also watching that.

    Yeah, we'll have to settle for lesser of two evils. Reminds me a of a TEDtalk I saw where they discussed one of the most terrifying diseases I've ever heard of: contagious cancer. It exists in Tasmanian Devils apparently. Now there's something that you don't really even want to think about even spreading to our species.

    I can tend to indulge my inquisitive mind a bit too often myself and over-think scary possibilities. I hate it when something just gets stuck in your mind. It's like you want a pair of pliers to just pull that sucker out.

    That always sucks. It reminds you not to take things for granted, good things can be so fleeting. Before you know it, you've missed your chance. I really felt that way when my favorite stand-up comedian, George Carlin, died a couple of years ago. I kept thinking "Damn, I'm never going to get to experience seeing him live. Not ever, no chance." That hits hard.

    Innocent, pfff. I see through your nice-guy demeanor. It's all a front to get people to think about people searching for molestation, boobzilla and other obscene terms, hence lowering that person's view of humanity and eventually leading to him becoming a serial-killer. Oh, I got you pegged now, I'm on to you...

    My turn to apologize for a late reply. Thought I had the last word for some reason. I watched Working 7 now, weird episode. Entertaining as always, though, and looks like it's leading up to something funny. Yamada with cat-ears.... reminds me so much of Hazuki from Tsukuyomi. Another short, purple-haired girl I love.... this has been a pattern for a long time apparently.

    At least they're a little milder than the color-related ones.

    I definitely know that feeling. There are certain things that just torment your mind, and you can't get them out... best to just stay clear of those.

    Ah, yeah. I'm going to have to be pretty lucky for one of my favorite artists to drop by my city, though. I've heard a lot of good things about the Fallout games as well, but those are just way outside my field of interest.

    Maybe you were. I never know what you're up to. I can live with it as long as it's for science, though.

    Yeah, I guess colors and illnesses don't mix well.

    The program was not graphic in its recreations or depictions of the events, but some of the stories were quite horrifying. It was impressive how a lot of these researchers were so devoted to their craft that they would put themselves at great risk testing these new drugs, though. Feats that command respect, no doubt. Skin lacerations are really horrifying, amputations are so blunt and big that I don't find them as scary for some reason. Although, obviously that would probably change if I ever had to have one.

    Sounds pretty cool to me. I guess they're going to have to do a lot of traveling when they live in such a small town. I've never been to a concert in my life, not sure I'd be comfortable stuck between 1000 other people yelling, pushing and jumping. But hey, if one of my favorite artists came to town, I'd give it a shot.

    Yeah, my friends never stop talking about Oblivion and Morrowind, so there must be something to them. I love the setting, fantasy is definitely my preferred game-type, but I've never grown to love first-person... well, anything. Not that I have the computer to run Skyrim anyway, my computer has trouble just staying on. :P

    As for creepiness; hey, you got to make sacrifices to get traffic. I don't really understand the thought process behind writing "Inami molester" into your search engine though, I have to admit. I don't know what they were hoping to find. And that might be for the best.

    Nothing good ever comes easy. A little gangrene never hurt anyone. Wait...

    I saw a great documentary called "Medical Mavericks." It was about medical pioneers who tested their own inventions and concoctions on themselves to experiment, this episode was about anesthetics in particular. They talked about a guy who was apparently the best in the world at amputating limbs. He could do it insanely quickly. There was apparently a case where he tried to "break his record" and accidentally cut through the guy's testicles as well as cutting off two of his assistant's fingers.

    Yeah, I hate extreme temperatures. It's getting there with the cold right now. I never see any metal-heads around here. I sort of like the style, but it's not for me. I'm less confrontational, and that doesn't go well that appearance.

    Ah yes, Skyrim. I don't care about it at all, but I'm sure I won't be seeing most of my friends for a couple of weeks. Looking forward to the Working episode, I'll probably watch that tomorrow. Molester, huh. I guess that's a lot creepier than "boobzilla." :P

    I don't know. If I got to wear those hats and commandeer awesome boats... might be worth a leg or two. Well, maybe not two.

    At least I live way down south in the country, up north the temperatures are insane, aren't many countries higher north than that. Long hair is certainly not practical for most tasks. If only I was more of a hardcore metal-head, I could get some use out of it....

    Uhm.... fight fire with fire? I can't think of any more related puns. And maybe that's for the best.
