Re: Help me plan my trip around the world!

This is very funny to me because Superga is an Italian brand of shoe that lends its name to the Slovenian word for sneakers. Ahem.

July and August are actually the two months this year I'm mostly...

Re: Presidential Candidates

No arguments here. But it's still better than nothing.



This is very true. Other countries manage better, though - perhaps the solution is for America to stop viewing itself as such an...

Re: Presidential Candidates

I think you're right. The French and the Russian revolutions both failed because of the people involved. It's all very well and good to have ideals; but if some people care about themselves more than...

Re: Presidential Candidates

Here is a very basic list of things the government is responsible for:

infrastructure
education
social welfare
justice
emergency services


How do you propose to address those without...

Re: On Brexit and its Consequences

This isn't true. Youth turnout was far higher than initially reported - a majority of ALL people under 25 voted remain, compared to the 37% of all voters who voted leave.

Re: Favorite board/tabletop games

This seems really weird to me. I can't imagine anyone in western Europe not knowing what a standard deck of playing cards is. (Certainly not to the extent that they plain wouldn't know they were...

Re: Favorite board/tabletop games

I will play anything so long as I have some sort of agency. Some of my friends really like games like Tales of the Arabian Nights but those drive me crazy because no matter what I do I can't actually...

Re: What's going on?

I'd like to see the word lists the names are being generated from. They seem delightfully eclectic. (And quite often, things I can actually see someone calling themselves!) MissionLivermorium?...

Re: NaNoWriMo 2015

As a big fan of dystopian fiction can I just say this sounds like a really fun subversion. :D

There's one in most major cities and three in the Tokyo area.

Re: I'm going to Japan!

If you can spare a day, go to Nikko. Tokugawa's tomb is my favourite place in Japan.

In Tokyo, I recommend Meiji-jingu - start in Shibuya and make your way up to it, I would say. It's also right...

Re: Pokemon POV writing.

I would especially recommend elyvorg's winning entry from that contest. In addition to just being very well written it's one of the few that really considers what would be different from a Pokemon...

Re: Help me plan my trip around the world!

Look me up when you start planning the Japan leg in more detail. I will give you far too much detail about things you probably don't care about/won't be able to get to. :D

I'll probably be in...

That describes most of my nights. It just means you're sinking into the excellent stereotype.

Re: ASB password scare and related bans

People have the right to be angry. But I agree with you that direct, public attacks on the people involved are uncalled for. Please be civil, everyone.

That said, I would also appreciate it if...

Re: University Challenge

Oh, I know. But mostly I think it's just the case that American networks have more money. :P

Re: University Challenge

American TV quizzes are a totally different beast. There's far fewer of them, but they're less afraid of actually giving money away. When it comes down to playing for money, British TV quizzes...

Re: University Challenge

They'd never take me. Quiz shows with monetary prizes filter out people who are too good. (That said, I did try once, before UC. Never heard back.)
