Count Zero?

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Please ignore.  Old man here apparently doesn't know the difference between the "Search" field and the "Shoutbox" field.

Huhn. Penny arcade was right, the division 2 is literally 3 dollars...

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 February 2020 - 01:00 PM)

This guy.

@  Roddie Luver : (15 February 2020 - 10:55 PM)

Hey

@  Kalidor : (14 February 2020 - 03:01 PM)

The ones that get me are the "Uploaded 12 years ago" ones

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 February 2020 - 02:49 PM)

Makes you feel old, don't it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 February 2020 - 12:16 PM)

Besides: cupid freaks me out. "Find someone to love, or I'll SHOOT YOU".

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 February 2020 - 12:11 PM)

It's just the day before Cheap Chocolate Day.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 February 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Meh, just more game time.

@  Paladin : (14 February 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Valentine's day. Bummer.

@  Otaku : (14 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

damn. ive been going by "telly" on here for nearly 14 years...

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 February 2020 - 08:06 PM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

@  TriBlurr : (09 February 2020 - 11:58 AM)

Have any of you had your cat's teeth cleaned?  I've heard of dogs having cleanings, but not cats.

Back in the late 80’s, I had the teeth of my siamese Samantha cleaned. This was on the recommendation of the vet and in the end was not a pleasant experience for any of us. Sammie was overweight and that wasn’t taken fully into account when she came out of the anesthesia. Poor thing was sluggish for a few days afterward, puked up bile the night we brought her home was so tired she from the ordeal that when she needed to go to the litter box she didn’t even try to get up and whizzed all over the chair she was sleeping on. While technology has come a considerable ways since then, I vowed to never put another cat through that again unless it was required.

(My mom can laugh about Sammie and her accident now. She says that the poor cat was dreaming of being in a peeing for distance contest and shooting to win!)

I'm trying to come to grips with my little one's mortality.  I'm hopeful she improves with the new medication her vet is putting her on, but I'm also realistic about what I can expect.  I never thought I could lose her like this when I assumed I would have another 5 to 10 years with her.  I hope I'm just over reacting and she returns to normal, but even then, normal for her is never going to be 10 more years.

If you don't mind me asking, what's her diagnosis?

One of my old cats had health issues for most of her life. Gave us at least 3 times when I was sure that was it. Currently we have one cats with Feline Aids, so we have to be extra vigilant with her.

6 months ago I took my 11 year old cat in for a routine visit and they discovered she had a heart murmur.  They recommended she see a specialist for a echocardiogram, and they diagnosed her with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is a thickening of the left ventricle.  They weren't too concerned about it because her other vitals were normal, but they wanted to see her again for a followup in 9 months.  Fast forward to now--I've been noticing she's having trouble seeing, and while I wasn't really worried about it because she otherwise is behaving normally and getting around, I wanted to take her to the vet to see if it was something they could treat.  Turns out her blood pressure is sky high and her heart murmur is much worse.  She is now effectively blind due to damage from high blood pressure.  They prescribed bp medication (atenolol) and I made an appointment to see the cardiologist again.  The vet said her sight may return when her bp goes down, but she didn't seem to be very hopeful that the damage isn't permanent.  I feel terrible because I waited to make the vet appointment instead of taking her in the moment I realized something was off.  Her vision is completely gone now, and her activity level is low.  I think about her quality of life since she can no longer see to do normal kitty things.  And if there is damage to her eyes, I don't know what else might have been affected.  For the moment she is eating and drinking normally, but I'm still worried sick.  I couldn't get her in to see the cardiologist until next week, but for now I started her on the medication.  I can't stand the thought of losing her--she means everything to me.
