Pale skin or tanned skin?

Summer Cirno is a neat concept and that season does fit her personality, but ultimately, she is an ice fairy and her design should generally reflect that.

"Richard faced a dilemma. On one hand, he really liked the girl he had recently welcomed into his harem. On the other, he was sure she was mixing brown and wild rice (for flavor) into his normally white fried rice."

Not worth the trouble; she's out of here.

I've hardly heard any of his music, so I don't have an opinion.

What are your thoughts on the Old Testament? Do you think they're more stories about morality as opposed to actually having happened (i.e. The Flood, Moses parting the seas, etc.)?

It is all about morality, including the parts that are literally true. I think more of it is historically accurate than not, but which parts exactly isn't something I've looked into enough to have a firm opinion on, so I would defer to the Church Fathers and theologians who are more well-versed in the subject than I am.

How's the new Spice & Wolf book?

I haven't had a chance to actually start reading it yet, but the volume itself is very nice, though also rather unwieldy. I'm not sure what I'll do with the regular editions that I already own - they're largely redundant, except for the unique dust jackets that Yen Press used for the first few volumes.

You are one of my favorite Twitter users, despite us being on the opposite ends of the political spectrum (I'm a socialist and an atheist). I believe people should associate more with those they don't agree with on a political level, to let ideas flow freely and mature.

Thanks, I'm glad you're able to separate people from politics, which is something most people, myself included, find difficult.

What is your opinion on deckled edges ?


I haven't given it much thought, but I find them slightly annoying because it makes it more difficult to flip through a book.

Visiting a record store tomorrow in support of Record Store Day?

I didn't know that Record Store Day was a thing. Probably not, though; I prefer shopping during the week when stores are less busy.

What did you think of the Comfy Band Girl anime?

K-on is the pinnacle of the cute girls doing boring things genre, and the show that made me understand that moé sucks.

Now, I do understand why people like the show, and it does succeed at what it sets out to do, it's just that what it sets out to do is uninteresting. I graduated high school about a decade ago; I do not care what a bunch of teenagers are doing. The exceptions are shows that trigger my nostalgia (e.g., Azumanga Daioh, Haruhi), or the rare semi-guilty pleasure (e.g., Love Live).

View more Still, it's a list I plan to dig through, particularly some of the names mentioned in the comments. I think some of the more foreign names might be more fruitful, and the commenters do list a lot of them.

Probably true, and to be fair, just stripping out committed Progressives does make it a better list than many. Something more systematic would still be preferable.

"Soap opera" dude here: yeah it's a real scenario. Thanks for answering my question anyway. My life got real weird...

Good luck de-escalating things at least into sitcom territory.

Would you rather jog with a cool sports watch or cool running shoes?

Jogging is for overweight middle aged men who haven't yet given up on their New Year's Resolution again. Though running can be cool, it's impossible to look cool while jogging.

View more Here is a veritable goldmine of right-wing writers and artists. The long list is a little intimidating, and I'm not sure if I can vouch for all of them, but I thought you would appreciate it.

Thanks, but the list is way too broad to be useful. Many of these writers aren't on the Right in *any* meaningful sense, except that Progressives don't like them - and even "Progs don't like them" isn't true for all of them!

I have a moral dilemma. My mother is committing adultery with my father still being alive, but she wants me to accept it. I just found out her boyfriend has cancer; and she's upset that I don't feel bad. Do you think this makes me a bad son/Christian?

Assuming this soap opera scenario is a genuine question, no, you can't help how you feel, and since the will isn't involved, it isn't morally significant.

What is your opinion on capitalism?

Depends on how exactly you define it, but my understanding of economics is still mostly Libertarian, so I generally favour a laissez-faire approach to economic policy. I'm just not dogmatic about it.

Do you like Ozzy, and if so, favorite songs/albums?

I'm not a big fan, but I do have Blizzard of Ozz, which is pretty good. "Mr. Crowley" is my favourite of his songs by a good margin.

If you include his work with Black Sabbath, I also have Paranoid, which I like a lot, though that's the only album of theirs I own.

Mane, i don't like the catholic church. The catholic church in my area is filled with non-whites, and the pope is a k1ke. I feel much more at home in the lutheran church.

When evaluating Catholicism, or any religion or philosophy for that matter, the only relevant question is, "Is it true?" Not whether you like the people who believe it.
