Re: Schedules and Such

My days are pretty unscheduled, but a typical day looks something like: Wake up anywhere between 5 and 8(usually between 6 and 7) without the use of an alarm clock. Check e-mail without getting out of bed. Check Chao Island for new posts, reply as I feel like it. Check other forums I frequent for ne...

Re: Do you share any birthdays with vidya characters?

Did some googling and came across a anime character wiki with lists of characters by birthdays, but didn't recognize any of the names and the only series I've even heard of bing Clannad and Angelic Layer. Consulted the Harry Potter Wiki's page on October and the closest match there is that Fitwick's...

Re: Do you share any birthdays with vidya characters?

In my experience, Googling list of [Game title] characters will usually bring up a game's character list on Wikipedia or a wiki dedicated to that game specifically. Also, my experience is that googling [character name] [series name] wiki will return a profile article on a specific character from a w...

Re: How To Infuriate A Communist

I have communistic leanings, but this thread does more to confuse me than infuriate me. Anyways: Contrary to what Nano says, I'd argue that Democracy, as a decision making process, and communism, as an economic policy, would marry quite nicely. After all, in their purest forms, they are the sharing ...

Re: The Real Sonic 4

Honestly, it's probably easier to assume the Sonic games have negative continuity or that Sega just doesn't care about continuity with the Sonic franchise(and similar can probably be said for most platformers that last more than a trilogy or have stories more complex than an excuse plot). Not that i...

Re: Staring at breasts is good for you. Remastered Edition.

I'm pretty sure a scientific paper needs peer review to make it into any reputable journal. The bigger problem is that so many papers are either based on very small sample sizes, aren't sufficiently blinded, or fail to replicate. And yeah, popular science journalism has a bad habit of distorting wha...

Re: Cringe Discussion/Is it right to laugh at embarrassing people?

This thread is the first time I've ever heard of cringe culture. I'm assuming it's another of those things one can avoid in its entirety by just steering clear of mainstream social media and it's tendency to bring out the worst in people.

I'd argue JP Blue, Yellow, Crystal, Emerald, and Platinum more closely resemble expansion packs or DLC for their corresponding paired versions. Except GameFreak/Nintendo force you to rebuy the base games and start a new game to see the new content(though, admittedly, prior to XY, Pokemon was on a sy...
