As in: really short, simple, comedic, not exactly set in particular time (or even place), being more of an animated equivalent of a comic strip, rather than a full-blown series.

I know, most people don't exactly agree with me about it. Whatever.

On December 15, 2013, 36-year-old Hirofumi Watanabe was arrested, not for any ordinary crime, but for waging a terrorism/hate war against a hugely successful manga – Kuroko no Basuke (“Kuroko’s Basketball“) – and its author, Tadatoshi Fujimaki. Watanabe says that his motive is jealousy.

On October in 2012, a plastic container containing a liquid capable of releasing poisonous hydrogen sulphide was left on the second floor in the gymnasium of Tokyo’s Jochi University, with a note attached that read, “I hate Fujimaki.” This was the alma mater of Tadatoshi Fujimaki. Then, on 15 October a threatening letter was delivered to Fujimaki’s former high school, which also reportedly contained a “white powder” — a potentially poisonous substance or a very real threat of one. By the end of October, similar letters were sent to broadcasters in Tokyo and Osaka who were airing the anime version of Kuroko’s Basketball.

Soon, marketing events and Kurorko-themed shows were being cancelled because of these threatening letters that were being received. Just recently, Watanabe was arrested in Shibuya, Tokyo, and was charged with “interfering with business.” According to police he was picked-up while putting letters into mail boxes in the Shibuya District. Found in Watanabe’s backpack were 20 threatening letters to organizers of a high school basketball tournament and Comiket demanding cancellations.

When caught, Watanabe reportedly admitted “I’m sorry, I lost,” and “I was working alone.” When asked of his motives for doing these acts and holding a grudge against Fujimaki and Kuroko’s Basketball, Watanabe reportedly said that he never met the manga artist but “was jealous of his success.” This “jealousy’ was also mentioned in a letter to the Mainichi newspaper, which read, “Fujimaki who lived a blessed life, and I who have never experienced anyone’s love.”

Just gotten through installing all my stuff into my new macbook.....
Somehow it doesn't feel any faster..... (even slower in fact, OSX 10.9 seems to be capping performance on a single task.)
and it seems that the new LCD panel is crappier then the old one.....
oh dear... apple...

 

Gosh I hate OSX 10.9 they decided to remove the 2D low profile dock so I have to use the flashy 3D one (which looks like schiit IMO) now everything looks more "fancy" and I can't change it back.......

 

As for the LCD panel... the default color profile shows grey as brown... do I need to say anymore?
I took over half an hour to recalibrate the LCD color profile by eye...

@Nekosou, Have you considered the leckerton uha-6s mkii or the uha-760? They both have usb inputs that work with iphones. The dac on them aren't the greatest but they are probably better than the ones on iphones. The best thing about the leckerton is its amp section (get the ada4627-1b opamps) for use with IEMs and CIEMs. You can get a uha-6s mkii used for about $200.

 

What headphones or iems are you using anyways?

Dat feels....this dude is as egocentric as one can get.

"Your life is good, mine isn't (which is most likely my own fault). Because I feel bad, you should too."

A simple egoist yeah. But nothing wrong with that.

 

Reading into morals and the ethics of our history and current society more or less tells us that our society and morals that we hold true today are based on the assumption that humans are innately simple egoists.

That's far beyond "simple" IMO.
