Huh, never really thought much about where it came from before.
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.
You did way more research then I was willing to do :)
I just started wondering because my nose was bleeding today.
As you know, 2016 is an election year. It could very well be the most important election year of our lives, The issues are many, as well as the candidates. However, I urge you to separate the wheat from the chaff and vote for those who will do what is best for this country. If you feel that is Ted Cruz or Donald Trump, so be it. If you feel that is Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton, so be it. Whomever it may be, do NOT vote for him or her based on personality or party but on your own personal principles. Vote for the person you honestly believe will make this country truly great. Remember, principles over personality.
Woke up ~4:30 am, drugged my cancerous cat then fed her using a needleless syringe (pureed tuna).
Logged on to work remotely to check the data tables for validity before launching EOY processes.
Launched the process which also launches 5 other processes of my teammates.
Had to rework the SQL code as the format of the datatables had changed.
Found that some of the data was questionable, so I contacted the SME.
SME referred me to another system I do not have access to, but others on the team do - so it will have to hold until Monday.
Manager emailed me & others offering to buy lunch (our choice) for working the weekend.
Let the sick cat nap on my lap for about an hour, until my legs were falling asleep.
Replied to a FB challenge from a good friend - 7 Songs in 7 Days. Day 1 "Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto #2 in C minor".
Watched NCIS repeats.
Drugged cat again & syringe food.
Grabbed 2 fingers of Bailey's.
Cops aren't properly trained to handle mental health crisis like at all. Some departments are starting to make special units to respond. They should also hire doctors to go on those types of calls with them.
Yeah, that's another thing about airing pick ups: How do we even know if the network is willing to pour all of that money into acquiring a show that might not even get a ratings viable timeslot due to controversial content?
And I don't think its a matter of Viacom being dicks as much as it is the fact that since they own the show they see giving it to their direct competitors as a drain of money.
It's only a drain if it's airing during a prime ratings time. South Park's slot on CC is early / mid evening with the normal midnight / 1a CC fare tending towards either movies or comedy re-runs. A hypothetical South Park slot on [as] would be in that midnight / 1a section due to content. So it would basically be re-run vs re-run in a slot that isn't expected to be a super winner all the time. People who would watch that 100th airing of [insert comedy movie / Jeff Dunham special here] aren't going to flip to [as] to watch a South Park re-run and vice versa.
