So you live in the UK and were only visiting Hong Kong? How clever to change your listed location to your actual location. :tongue_smile:

How long did the visit last? Raptor's location has been Hong Kong for as long as I can remember.

The way it was worded made it seem like Raptor had been away from the UK and was finally returning home.

Well, my memory isn't that great. If Raptor said this himself, then yes it does, but I was referring to the last time I noticed a change in his listed location (which I can't clearly remember), so my poor memory + "as long as I can remember" is a pretty ambiguous span of time.

All I know is that "back in UK" implies returning there, and that implies living there, or at least having stayed for a significant time.

 

Then again, some people may say something like "going back to Hawaii" to refer to a second vacation, so what do I know...

Yep, but it's still a good idea to stock up!

 

For images I upload here, I just use whatever format is more space efficient so it gets uploaded quicker. For screenshots and other pictures that have a lot of uniform color, I use PNG, otherwise if it's a picture with a lot of different colors then I use JPG.

 

In some countries where firearms are banned, violent crime is much higher than in countries where they are not. This is no coincidence.

 

That's odd, because when I convert from PNG to JPG, it often messes with the colors quite a bit.

Going "back" somewhere could mean (but isn't limited to) one of these three things:

 

1. An individual lives in Place A, and goes to Place B for vacation, then goes back to Place A

2. An individual lives in Place A, and goes to Place B for vacation, returns to Place A, then goes back to Place B for another vacation

3. An individual originally lived in Place A, then goes to live in Place B for longer they have lived in Place A, and goes back to Place A

 

Please clarify, @Ra97oR :confused_face(1):

Of course; guns aren't considered to be a tool of violent crimes (in my opinion), because they make taking lives quick and swift, leaving little room for violence. Baseball bats are violent. Dull-bladed machetes are violent.

 

I don't seem to have much of a problem with JPGs at 95+ quality settings. At least, not with the naked eye.

Umm...that's violence too. In fact, "swift and intense force" is the primary definition of violence.

 

Here is one informative link out of many explaining what I meant.

 

Yeah, the only JPG files that had messed up colors were converted in Paint, which doesn't have quality settings.

Oh and I saw a cosplay of Inori at District 798. The one with the red scarf on the album cover. Too bad I wasn't ninja enough to take the shot.

Hmm Kon..

Well then, I probably got 'violent' mixed up with 'cruel'.

You also got cruel mixed up with painful. :p Shooting (especially killing) someone is always cruel, but not always painful.
