Hey ... I never realized until now that the maker of the Predator flying killer robot is General Atomics.

That is such a Golden-Age-of-science-fiction name! Very Heinlein, very Asimov.

Remind me later to Google whether Positronic Brains and Spaceways Ltd. are real companies too.

Neat!

Just remember: the discomfort you feel when you get seriously hungry around lunchtime the first day... it really doesn't get much worse than that. In fact, probably 90% of the unpleasantness of hunger for me, originally, was just dread that it was bound to get worse and worse throughout the day; only about 10% of it was actual physical discomfort. Once I went through a few days of it and realized that the "anticipation of future discomfort" was the worst part, and that said future discomfort didn't actually materialize, it got pretty darned easy. :)

And make sure you've got plenty of water handy. Your stomach is stupid; it can't tell much of a difference between water and cake.

Don't worry. That's how it works 'round these parts. Timothy gets the credit for DONDEROOOOOO!!!, I get the credit for your diet, and pretty soon you'll get the credit for some other cool thing you didn't come up with. It's the circle of plagiarism life. :)

Because I'm proud of it, despite the possibly shameful content (mostly meaning Arcana Famiglia and Hagure Yuusha no Sexual Harassment, not anime in general), I wanted to post that I'm now an anime blogger at Sushi GoKart. It's a lot of fun (been doing it about 3 weeks now), but my image skills need a lot of work.
