One informal analysis suggests short first names are strongly correlated with higher salaries. They are bad in several ways, and modern glyphs are little better. For example, v and w, or m and n. People confuse them all the time, both in reading and in writing. Even though they share relatively few pixels, they are still identical under rotation, and we can see that.

Finland fought on the German side against the Soviet Union from My German great-grandfather fought against the country of his family…after he married a Pole. You have to wonder what these guys were thinking back then. If the Germans had not provided military assistance to Finland then the latter country would have gone under after a fierce resistance, and my father would have wound up as a guerrilla fighter in the woods. I probably would never have been born. So I owe my life to my father and his generation of Finns, and to their German ally.
I am grateful to them and I thank them from the bottom of my heart, and with deep humility. I am fiercely proud to be his son and may he rest in peace. No, there is nothing to feel bad about at all. I understand that in a life devoted to the realization that one leads a vacuous existence, the free market and the ideas inherent in the Enlightenment mean nothing.

Often considered in similar terms to Foe Yay. Tsunderes are often involved on at least one end. Kiss-Kiss-Slap is this in reverse kissing, then fighting. The scene where they kiss was actually a heartbreakingly epic and twisted failure of communications for both of them contributing to Asuka’s mental breakdown and Shinji’s Despair Event Horizon. They are attracted to each other but both fear rejection, so Shinji doesn’t dare believe it’s anything more than just a way to pass the time and Asuka pinches his nose ostensibly because his breathing is bothering her to get at least some kind of reaction out of him AND to ensure some kind of “plausible deniability” of her own emotions in the face of possible rejection.
And rejection is what she reads from his passiveness even if he doesn’t mean it as such, because he doesn’t understand there to BE anything to accept or reject So after seeing Shinji’s reaction that is, gasping for air, not hugging or comforting her she ran into the bathroom, making gargling noises as a front as seen in ep. Shinji is left feeling even worse. Black Lagoon ‘s seventh episode is an fight Rock and Revy which cumulates with Rock punching her, Revy shooting him in the face, and the two making of by kissing through their cigarettes.
In Blue Drop , Hagino and Mari’s huge fight at the school’s swimming pool results in both of them landing in the water and exchanging a kiss — probably, since that moment is obscured by lots of bubbles. Gokinjo Monogatari A kiss directly follows a bitchslap, which the heroine’s given her somewhat tactless lover. Celty punches Shinra who knocks her helmet off, and then the two hug.
Oh my, this is the perfect antidote to Monday blues. Deiseach April 23, at 1: It was partly my fault for having too much fun being on the receiving end of a Navy SEAL copy-pasta type experience, and I probably goaded Mr Gupta more than I should have past a certain point.

The concept is related to the theory that hate is not necessarily the opposite of love so much as its twisted twin; its opposite would be , lots of contained emotion towards a person might be translated into lust given the proper catalyst.

I recently learned there is a term for the thing social justice does. But first, a png from racism school dot tumblr dot com. So, it turns out that privilege gets used perfectly reasonably.

I had been having a lot of trouble naming my characters. Keep up the good work! Armond on 17 Aug at Jacob Mallow, Geneticist Extraordinaire on 18 Aug at For his super-identity, I think genetics sounds like an interesting source of inspiration. What do you think about Vector or Helix?
That plot’s pretty workable, but Jamal feels like a chosen one. He gets made into a superhero because he was born with the right physique. It might be more dramatic if Jamal gets selected for the experimentation because he wins some sort of competitive process.
This trope is nothing but universal in romantic stories. It frequently brings to a close the Will They or Won’t They? When a male and female character spend a lot of time bickering , it is all but inevitable that sooner or later he will interrupt her in mid-rant by suddenly grabbing her and kissing her. Less frequently, she grabs and kisses him. The kissed one rarely resists, and usually responds wholeheartedly. Usually this is triggered by their hostilities reaching a climax that results in an exchange of slaps, followed by a moment where both stare at each other in combined confusion and shock, after which they dive into the kiss.
Either way, the kiss prompts both to realize that they’ve been in love all this time — the rationale being that they wouldn’t argue so much if they didn’t give a damn about each other. Normally results in some kind of permanent change in their relationship. The concept is related to the theory that hate is not necessarily the opposite of love so much as its twisted twin; its opposite would be apathy. Ergo, lots of contained emotion towards a person might be translated into lust given the proper catalyst.
Pulled off successfully, it can be Otherwise, not so much. This trope is a major factor in Foe Yay shipping, since such arguments between those characters in the actual shows are often similar to examples of this trope or even get Why Don’t You Marry It? It should be noted that in Real Life it’s not exactly a sign of a healthy relationship, with the exception of a little roleplay between consenting adults.
Having seen it all in so many movies, she felt like she was going to visit a legendary movie set. It was too much to think about all at once. The Story of Humans and Space About six million years ago, a very important female great ape had two children.
It’s four answers to four questions. Here we go 1. I’m embarrassed that my boss found out I’m living with my parents. I’m 26 years old and moved back in with my parents three months ago as a combination of getting renovicted (where a landlord evicts a tenant under the, sometimes false, reason of conducting renovation) and wanting to save up a downpayment to purchase my own place.

WANT wait staff, waitstaff Yeah, it’s an ugly locution. It occurs primarily in help-wanted ads and signs. Some restaurants probably use it to cover their legal ass, but certainly not all. FWIW, the proprietor at the time was a former waiter. At Nick’s, Richard now works some hours as a host and some as a waiter. The term is not used in the strictest sense. I guess the take-away here is that restaurant people have too many real problems to deal with, to spend too much time worrying about the finest niceties of political correctness.
Many probably use it because elegant language is not a specialty of the house. Just be glad that such gendered occupational terms are the exception rather than the rule in English. We have but a sample, a taste, of the problems and awkwardness that are widespread in languages like French , Spanish , and German. The obvious word server, although indifferently male or female, has some problems of its own: Also, serving food is only one part of waiting table, and server is the natural word for the those who, in some restaurants, do a part of the serving that waiters and waitresses don’t do.
There are subtle indications, moreover I seem to recall a suggestion in that direction in Waiting , of a semantic distinction that would make the term wait staff somewhat useful and hence not so ugly. Once past the want ads, in any case, one does not yet find the restaurant business to be roiled by sexual correctness.
