Yesterday, 05:52 PMMy skepticism is immense. The only thing I see here is, "Okay, shes a jerk, but shes not all that bad.". Im not sure where some of you guys are getting, "Holy shit, I love Lucy." from.
"Ermahgerd, Lucy thanked me for doing nice things for her we must be life partners!"
But yeah, I think Mike will be seeing the same, that despite her behaviour she means well, and that maaaaybe he ought to have given her one more chance. He is not by the end of this chapter going to suddenly decide he loves her.
Yesterday, 11:25 AMThis thread is really beautiful, in a weird way. That analogy could have been terrible, but it just, works!
I don't do the fanboy thing, or I try not to, but God DAMN I cannot help but carry a deep respect for an author that uses cliches, tropes and expectations against you.
If I recall correctly isn't Taeshi a tv-tropes junkie?
15 June 2013 - 10:22 PMTo be honest, though I disagree with Atic's point entirely, I rather think he presented it well.
Atic, you just need to realise that while you have the right to post constructive criticism, the artist has the right to not acknowledge the criticism. If the artist (or in this case community) disagree with your point, then even if you feel you are correct, you do NOT have the right to assert yourself as so. You have an opinion, and it may or may not be correct.

Bumping your threads is very distasteful.
As for the upload schedule, used to update at 5am for me, so i'd wake up in the morning at 7 and read the page before leaving the house, now I have to wait 2 hours after getting back for the update. HNNGGGG.
Regardless, daily updates are pretty god damn sexy. Praise be to Tae.

Power shortage could become a major problem (maybe it already is somehow or somewhere, I am no expert) but unless technology provides means to use nuclear power while keeping the effects of an eventual all-out accident at an acceptable level, I am not sure it is worth the risk.
While a coal mine accident can kill al the workers, it has little impact on the rest of the world (thousands of workers die in construction sites as well); on the other hand the worst accident on an oil rig or the sinking of a tanker can be true ecological disasters, but with the limited amount of knowledge I have, I am under the impression that the environmental damage would still be far more recoverable in comparison to the worst accident a power plant can potentially produce.
That said, I still think nuclear power does have an utility, and I think its technology should progress as any other, that is being researched and improved as much as possible to get the best of it until a better solution is found and spontaneously takes its place.
You seem to be pretty nervous about Nuclear Power, though a quick google on "Nuclear Power Risk" ought to put anyone into a panic.
The first two melt downs that come to my mind are the Fukushima Daiichi disaster and the Chernobyl disaster. A tsunami hitting the Japanese reactor would have happened eventually since I believe it's right next to a fault line, so having a reactor there wasn't exactly stellar. As for the Chernobyl reactor, that reactor was just so badly designed. They ended up causing the explosion trying to shut down the thing. :|
Now reactors have systems to drop the control rods into the reactor should anything go wrong, that way all the Neutrons get absorbed and we can all not turn into dust. Just had a google and they call the system "SCRAM" so that should anything go wrong (like totally losing control) they just fall into the reactor due to their weight. I would not feel nervous about living near one, even if you work inside a nuclear plant, you'll get more radiation from a CAT scan at the hospital.
But fission reactors are old news. What we really ought to be investing in is FUSION REACTORS BABY. That's where the real energy is, and when we crack that sucka, we all live happily ever after. (But with perhaps slightly higher pitched voices due to the helium )
As for other renewable sources of energy, none of them can do it alone. The true risk isn't lack of power but too much, if we had enough renewable energy sources to power a country, someone would have to go about shutting them off every time you get a particularly bright or windy day else you'd end up damage the grid. Turning off a renewable source would be such a waste, so instead renewable energy sources ought to be combined with hydrogen fuel production, that way you can stick excess energy into electrolysis, storing up Hydrogen and Oxygen to be used to fuel the grid when the sunlight and wind drops.
