So far, my day has been awesome. Slept in later than I normally do, partially because I actually went to sleep last night. Then the hubby and I went to have breakfast at this cute little German restaurant a few blocks from here, those were some really fluffy blueberry pancakes. Probably about to goof around on the PS4 for the next couple hours, or possibly binge on some Criminal Minds. Might go out and buy a gallon of raw milk to make some fresh cheese, made mozzarella last week and I am kind of in the mood for some paneer this week. At some point later this afternoon, I plan to have an hour or two of fun with the hubby. Afterwards, I might cook dinner or possibly order dinner and bake cookies instead. So... yeah... that pretty much sums up my agenda.
I am NOT obsessing over it, I just think it's a good show, and that and Devil May Cry were the two shows I happened to like the most on the now-defunct Chiller Anime Wednesdays! And BTW, it has no more of a kiddy look than DragonBall Z does! (YES, I said it, and I'm glad I said it!)
GOD, are we NOT allowed to like either one of THESE shows now?!?! Somebody please give me a memo about the shows I am NOT allowed to say on here!
(any wonder I'm sticking with my friend's chatroom tonight for Toonami?)
Huh, never really thought much about where it came from brefore.
Located an article from ANN that doesn't really give much of an answer but says: "It's a long-standing Japanese folk belief that a nosebleed may signify sexual thoughts or arousal. The belief may have come into being in part because nosebleeds are reportedly more common in men than in women, although of late the joke of a female character suffering nosebleeds due to perverted thoughts has becoming increasingly popular, such as in Maria+Holic, Kannagi, and Doujin Work. On the other hand, if the Japanese folk belief has roots in the reality of who suffers nosebleeds, the trope should be more about dirty old men than teenage boys: nosebleeds are also more common in those under 10 or over 50. But in Ranma 1/2, it's young and innocent Ryoga, not raunchy old Happosai, who suffers frequent nosebleeds."
There's a couple of interesting theories I found here though about it maybe coming from sports like pro wrestling or even from the feudal era.
For those who wish to simply generally participate in discussion, and don't care about the pinned threads, best to anchor yourself to the current "home" link, which for some reason is the recent threads page. If you do this, pinned topics should simply bob around the list like any other thread.
For those who wish the pins to remain pinned, you will need to anchor yourself to the General Discussion board. Then right click any threads and open them in a new tab, maintaining your anchor in GD. This will allow you to always see the pinned topics as pinned if that is your desire.
Episode discussions for tonight's Toonami are currently pinned. So if you want to participate in those, you may either anchor to the GD folder, or click the "watch" link in the upper right corner of a thread, which should send you notifications whenever someone posts in that thread.
Is this ever going to be fixed to where pinned threads actually staying at the top being the default for the whole boards?
Here's a though, take those 80 titles and make a tournament, like the elimination threads on the old boards.
Not a bad idea, but that would be too much work having to total up all the votes and stuff, which is precisely what I'm trying to avoid by doing this. I mean, figuring out what I should watch next has become kind of a chore, so this basically takes it out of my hands. Plus eliminations usually just have a couple of people generally voting over and over again. I think this way, even if it's a bit boring since you only can vote one time, probably gives a bit more fair representation of people's opinions.
