How the 'elections' went in Russia were part of the badassery of why I like Putin
Yes, having fair democratic elections and that cycle is good. That has its ups and downs with good and bad leaders and can also lead to serious crap and failing if not done correctly.
Putin and his crownies thought, **** that schiit. A new federation would be beneficial with a 'behind the scenes' autocratic based system. As history, political studies, and LOGH shows. This is indeed one of the beneficial ways. This way, is actually more beneficial for countries that are rising out of ashes IF DONE CORRECTLY. This typically isn't that case, and the possibility of long standing dictators leads to possible more worse solutions than a full democratic system. Most choose the safer and slower route. Putin said **** that.
You need to look at the big picture. Look at the RF's history, and look at what Putin has done. It is nothing less than awe aspiring and moving. In one of the recent videos showing Russian Cossacks beating a protestor. One of them said 'Putin will teach you to love the motherland'. It was funny, but it was also real.
LOGH was nothign short of amazing.
Ask this guy a question :3
Space Dandy is good? i think i will watch it then, i mean Mushishi is legendary and so so Unique!! how come space dandy is the same? i though its some retarded show hehehe
btw i watch the new seasons shows once they are completed , i hate watching on going, I DID WATCH NAGI NO ASAKURA till 19!!! :< SUPER BIG MISTAKE!!! T_T i wish i did wait longer...
THIS episode was a lot like Mushishi. The other ones are clearly not.
Oh and it's not particulary retarded....just all about the fun :)
I sure am enjoying Space Dandy a lot.
Ooooooohhhhhh now I'm not so sure anymore if Onodera really is the best girl!
Nisekoi is a lot better than I expected. I just love the way SHAFT does everything ♥
Can't help but to laugh a bit every time I see 「精一杯」(TL: to give your all / do your best ) in Japanese....
The same kanji would be most likely be interpreted as "a cup of jizz" in Chinese.
TD cancelled my order of 4 mouses that would otherwise have costed them over $100 if they allowed me to get them....awww
I have about 3 more episodes of SEL (Serial Experiments Lain) left to watch, so I will input my opinion for those who may be interested. My opinion can be subject to change. (Spoiler-free)
For starters, Serial Experiments Lain is certainly unlike anything I've ever seen before. It presents psychological issues at the expense of the viewer; characters in SEL don't ask or beg for the viewer's empathy. There is no false sense of insanity (the show's actually very sane, in contrast to popular belief), and the characters are portrayed very realistically (though albeit quiet). There are no statements visually or through dialogue that tells the viewer about a particular character's condition, very rarely does the show express emotion conspicuously. Yet, even without truly understanding the character's intentions, yet I feel as if SEL displays one of the greatest portrayals of characterization in anime. Characters in SEL do not show ambition, and through this medium, the events that take place 99% of time seem unaccounted for (unexpected). There still is a cause and effect factor within the plot, yet it is highly likely the viewer will not notice this relation, nor will he or she be able to explain a certain event's purpose, since he or she will be spending most the anime trying to understand the purpose of the previous scene, or the reasons for a certain character's reaction during the present scene. The best way I can describe it; is that the characters in SEL are like the characters you would see in a very good movie, where the actors don't express their feelings through facial expressions, or words, but through atmosphere. It's just a very mature anime, and viewers should try their best to remain open minded when watching.
Basically, everything's a mystery, yet there are answers to be found, and everything that happens, happens for a reason, not the way you might want it to happen.
The plot is something else. Potential viewers; don't hold any expectations for SEL, just watch it and get an idea for yourself. It's pretty first rate in my opinion, and EXTREMELY original (it was made in 1998)
Lain (the MC) is an absolute enigma, and is currently one of the best characters I've seen to date. Her ability to characterize her role in SEL rivals only that of Dio Eraclea (Last Exile), and Samejima, Mamimi (FLCL).
Also, for potential watchers; this anime is not enjoyable. It lacks drive and ambition, yet this is factor is what makes SEL subtly amazing, and at times utterly shrouded in mystery.
SEL is not entertainment (more like a mind game), it doesn't beg the viewer to watch, and I can't call it a masterpiece either, but what it does do, it does extremely well; and with a cold shoulder.
I will post all my impressions after I finish the anime
