Well Earth is actually named Terra (in Latin), the same way the Moon is named Luna (also in Latin). So at least it's consistent?

And Sailor Moon didn't actually exist during the Silver Millennium. That's why Luna only remembers four Inner Senshi.

Oh, and the Outer Senshi only exist because Takeuchi was talked into continuing and expanding the story. She actually came up with the Ail and An story to help buy her time to write a new story for Sailor Moon. She roughed out it out, then handed it to the animation writers. She then started writing the Black Moon Family arc.

Cultural history? Of the West From Rome Onward, would be a better title. But the graphic kinda sorta ignored Greece and it's city-states. And Egypt. Virtually nothing on Asia, Africa, or South America (unless it had some direct contact with Europe). Persia gets ignored, as do the Maya and Aztecs. Nothing about Southern Asia. 

It's like nothing existed until discovered by a Westerner. Example: Christian Missionaries in Japan. THOSE are your "notable individuals" for that country? A country whose history goes back to BEFORE Rome was founded? ~facepalm~

This is a great example of cultural tunnel vision, though.

The shock in your voice when you won that last game... ^_^

This seems to be a deck that benefits a lot on having a firm grasp on likely opponent decks. VERY entertaining deck.

The problem is that the End of the World genre is fatigued. There has been a movie, or video game, or TV series, or novel (or all of the above) with an 'end of the world' theme released every year since at least 2000, and many were just continuations from series created even earlier.

The reason you keep thinking, "That reminds me of a scene from [insert other EotW media example]," is because it's all been explored already. This is true of pretty much all fiction, but in this case it's been VERY recently (as in within the last 5 years) explored, and in this exact setting. The discussions have been had and are still fresh in everyone's minds. There hasn't been a 'cooling off' period that would allow a large group of fresh people to come in and see these ideas and tropes for the first time.

It's a theme/genre that needs to be allowed to 'rest' for ten year or so.

As for corporations being an EotW vector? In and of themselves, they can't do that. Now, if they created a virus, or a machine, or started a war, they could end the world. But it would still be 'virus ends the world', or 'killing machines end the world', or 'war ends the world'. Maybe if the corporations sold the world to aliens? No, that would still be 'aliens end the world'.

Having watched both seasons and read the manga, I loved the series. My only gripe is that the anime doesn't get to to show Hachiken's business ideas and you never see the way he's slowly earning his father's respect, while creating a web of connections with classmates.

This series is an earnest and sincere (and honest) love letter from the manga-ka to her home in Hokkaido. It starts as a straight 'fish out of water' comedy, but slowly introduces the drama, particularly in the second season. The series brings up things like dealing with raising animals for slaughter, the often crushing debt many farms and farmers face, and the lose of dreams in the face of reality. It also points out that modern farmers need a working understanding of chemistry, biology, virology, and genetics just to compete. 

Some interesting trivia:
Hiromu Arakawa, the manga-ka of Gin no Saji (though most anime fans know her better for that 'little' series Fullmetal Alchemist) is a native of Hokkaido. She was born and raised on a dairy farm, and continued to work there for seven years after high school to pay for painting classes. This why she always depicts herself as a cow with glasses.

Oh, and as of Feb. 2014, she's given birth to three children.

As for the next "big cosplay"? For anime, expect a resurgence of Sailor Moon for at least the next year.

200 to 275 thread count material is about where you'll want to be for most designs on white or ash shirts. It'll be able to hold a high level of detail, with nice clean edges, but won't let too much ink (not paint!) through. If you plan on large block letters and/or numbers, a much lower thread count (right around 100) is better.

The harder and more sharp-edged the ink applicator is, the less ink that will be laid down. Moderately hard-edged squeegees are available pretty cheaply at hobby shops. Try to use something that is larger than the design, but will still fit inside the hoops. The reason they are having so much problem with laying down a even layer of ink is because the card is way too hard.

It's also important to know what kind of ink you are using.

Even if the doctor gives you medicine, unless it's a bacterial-based sickness, all it's going to do is suppress the symptoms. You'll still be very sick,and you will still need to rest. And by 'rest', I mean sleeping. MAYBE reading in bed. NOT making videos. NOT tweeting. NOT doing anything that could get you restless or frustrated.

And it might take several days before you're recovered enough to do videos again, and even then you might limit it to one video a day for a few more days.

Put away the smartphone, turn off any tablets. REST.

I actually thought the character development of Hachiken was well paced. The first season only covers about six months (April to September) of an on-going story that has only just reached the end of that first year at the school (in the manga); by this point, he has found what he wants to do and begins working hard to achieve it. Frankly, if he had found his dream in the first season, I'd have felt it to be a bit trite and predictable.

Oh, and the manga-ka of the series is Fullmetal Alchemist's Hiromu Arakawa. The series itself is an earnest and sincere love letter for her home in Hokkaido. She might live in Tokyo, but it's obvious that her heart is still in Hokkaido.

When I really started to get into this series, I found out that, as of just this past Feb., she's had three children. And how does she announce this birth? http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-02-12/fullmetal-alchemist/silver-spoon-hiromu-arakawa-has-her-3rd-baby

"But that's another episode." ~glare~ Oh Ha ha. ^_^

But I do remember the episode of Good Eats you first used this in, so there really is 'another episode' this time.

Seriously, you've been saving that line, haven't you?

Lots of people cosplaying the same series = lots of strangers who now know they have something specific in common with each other.
