Well it's that time of year again! time to hang the asking pantsu over the candelabras again, and to buy your uncles anti-aging cream!

that's right, it's Ask Anyone Anything Thread time again!

if you want to ask a question to anyone in this thread, or to everyone in the thread, then this is the time to do it!

so ask away, and let your heart be free you beautiful /pony/ peoples!

here's my first question

What is something you love that other people in your life don't seem to get?

it's an awesome show that just so happens to have pastel horses! why can't parents see the taste of kirin toast crunch?

oh, are you in the path of that hurricane? stay safe please!

we did get some more snow earlier! but again, it didn't stick, which is fine. now the clouds have cleared, and it's just bitter cold right now :PP

ah jeeze, i would probably have to sit and chew on that for far longer than i would like! computer language isn't my thing

i tried looking for it at safeway, but alas it wasn't there :// i've found close approximations, but they were not the same brand that you showed me

>hugs and kajis <3

i was definitely raised with more open minded parents (overall) that allowed me to watch cartoons, explore art and things, and generally were supportive of the things i did.

it would have been great overall, but my mom being an alcoholic made it so i was forced to be independent and always crucially aware of people and my surroundings to a neurotic level. i also have trust and intimacy issues because of that

i agree with my first paragraph, and i abhor the second paragraph :PP

i love it!

but why?


Dang, that stuff is pretty good, but I guess it's a regional product. Too bad for you :p. It's got such an addictive quality, just by the time you are done scarfing it down you realize you've spiced up your whole mouth so bad that you can barely stand it. I need to buy me some more, lol.

What is your preferred salsa and hot sauce then?


They're cute.

you could always send some to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :33

well, that's tricky cause i don't typically buy hot sauce, i usually just find it at restaurants, or eat whatever my dad has. i've always enjoyed hot sauces, and i typically favor green chili sauces, made with roasted colorado peppers or hatch peppers

that being said, if you strictly are asking bout sauce that i buy. the one i buy consistently isn't even a "hot sauce" but i put it almost everything.

Huy Fong Garlic Chili Sauce


it's by the same people who make that most iconic Sriracha sauce, but i prefer the Garlic sauce personally

it's not super spicy, but it has that garlic and asian flair that i love <3

makes me hungry for pancakes and milk <3


It's a little better, but yeah. I found out it's much cheaper to have a tooth pulled than to get a root canal, but I'm hoping I can avoid that. The pain is much better now, so let's hope it gets better in time. They said there's no telling, and it could go either way. Hopefully it stays unpainful long enough for me to get the money together for it.

thanks. I don't have a lot of people in my life I can talk about things with. If I tell my family that my tooth hurts, they accuse me of whining. It's frustrating.

tooth pain sucks, and root canals are even worse!

i've had one, and it was one of the most painful things! the injection hit a facial nerve, and it was awful! plus there is the mess of actually having to pay for the darn thing!

so i get it! it sucks! so you have my empathy and support!

heh, i kid, but thanks for the offer :))

>ice cream
perhaps, maybe a dark chocolate ice cream, and treat it as a mole sort of thing


pancakes are a neutral base, and you can technically put anything you want on them. So sure! maybe with some bacon and eggs :))


hard pass :PP

however, it's not the strangest thing i've ever heard

I would say sashimi, but that's pretty common at this point.

i've always been interested in blue rare, although i haven't seen a place that actually do it, so i never had it

i've had sushi, i have had sashimi, but never a nearly raw steak


that's not how it works. ...i don't think!

I'll just... try to focus on not hurting. Like Batman.

There's no devices in his teeth as far as I know. But it must be hard for Bruce Wayne to make up excuses for why his teeth keep getting damaged.

But no, goofus. That video is about how Batman traveled to India to learn techniques to ignore pain. Which is important when you're constantly getting hurt!

Go to a more upstanding restaurant, one that you is pretty clean in the kitchen, and ask for the chef to make it "as raw as he is allowed to make it".

It will be closer to that pictures rare then blue rare, but it will still be raw in the middle.

Or, alternatively, get a good steak from a butcher that you trust. I recommend searing it, thirty seconds one one side, thirty on the other, with a little salt, pepper, and A1 sauce.

i haven't watched the video yet, so i can't say anything about the technique involved there

but i can tell you that i have learned a couple techniques

the first is one where you focus on the pain, and you envision it as this large source of pain energy, and then make it smaller and smaller until it vanishes from your mind. That one works okay for some things for me, but not all pains

the other one which i like alot more is breathing through the pain. where you focus on the source of the pain, and you envision that you are breathing through the source. That has helped me in almost every painful situation i've been in, cuts, bruises, when i broke my wrist, when i tore tendons in my foot.

so that is my experience. i can't say i'm great at it, as it's not my field of expertise, but i know what works for me


I'll keep that in mind.

We studied the 4 main philosophy waves, focusing in great detail with the life of René Descartes and how he was the main representant of the rationalism, and how he got into that. I got a 18 out of 20 in my exam!
As a final homework I have to write about my own "philosophy of life". What morals and processes do I, Iara Amelia, follow in my everyday life? Easier said than done.

I usually buy 92% dark chocolate.  It's a bit of an acquired taste, but I like that it doesn't have a lot of sugar.

> I got a 18 out of 20 in my exam!
Congratulations!  You must have studied well for the exam!

>As a final homework I have to write about my own "philosophy of life". What morals and processes do I, Iara Amelia, follow in my everyday life?
>Easier said than done.
Indeed!  How are they going to grade you?  I assume they're going to want you to refer back to and evaluate the various philosophies you're been taught in the class?

>René Descartes
I'm glad to hear that!  You studied his cogito ergo sum argument, I presume?

Thank you Moony.
So, is this place still yours btw?

>All replies are for me

>It's a bit of an acquired taste, but I like that it doesn't have a lot of sugar.
I like all chocolates but extremely dark one is far too strong for my delicate mouth. If it's TOO dark, I might spit it.

>How are they going to grade you?  I assume they're going to want you to refer back to and evaluate the various philosophies you're been taught in the class?
I need to fill in the following:
-Main representants
-Context. When and where this way of thinking started for me
-Description. How it works.
It's for tomorrow and I gotta finish it asap but I'm still thinking about it.

>You studied his cogito ergo sum argument, I presume?
Yup. That was how René concluded that there are some truths in the world, and that the REAL truth can be achieved eventually, if you ask yourself the right questions.

How old is your imouto now?  Do you like Terraria?  I vaguely remember when I was in elementary school a science classroom had a terrarium.

Have you watched Little Witch Academia?


I'll admit I'm not into crying hot food either


She's 13, almost 14 now. I love Terraria, but she's so pushy and wants to play together all the time!
Terraria is a game lol, not talking about real terrarium here.

I have and I didn't liked it. Ako is terrible.

She's good but not good enough to salvage this series from the trash heap for me.

1. your opinion

2. she's the farthest from a mary-sue in almost every way possible outside of the "destined" trope; which does not qualify

Anti-sues are a kind of mary sue.
She's supposed to be "so clumsy", yet she masters hard-to-perform spells in seconds and beats professionals who have worked hard on it. In almost every episode, she MUST come triumphant, as well as making anyone who doesn't likes her look bad.

Like 4 I think. I really, really, could not stand Ako at all. If she's the main character, I would rather see myself out.

she's adorable and easily the reason why i love the show the way i do

and to make her a "mary-sue" you would need to

make her better than diana in magic and in general intelligence

make her popular amongst everyone

every scenario she is in, she does perfectly and with no trouble at all

Akko has none of these going for her

i think you are confused, that's a tried and true trait of a lot of shows of this type; and you ignore her entire purpose to the show

she is clumsy, she fails at the most basic of magic, and she has no reason to be there in the eyes of almost everyone. The only reason she stays there is because of her tenacity, passion, and pure stubborness

the attributes where she does shine through, where she does have these strange magical abilities and knowledge, and has this destiny with the shiny rod, and the childlike wonder is supposed to be there because it shows her part in the whole of this universe

it is a world where magic is dying, and technology is dominant. Witches are more or less just obsolete, and geopolitics are at the center of everything, while they are not even part of the picture.

what akko represents is magic's reason for being. it has alot of use, but she represents the love and admiration. The pure wonder of it all, and the heart and determination to actualize it and spread that same passion to others.

she isn't a mary-sue. and "anti-mary sue" isn't even a thing

what you are complaining about is just tropes, and that can be hit or miss with anyone depending on their individual tastes, but that is no marker on their quality

Saying "every series does it, so it's normal" it's not my cup of tea. We have gone far enough to go agaisnt conventions of what is expected and done every single time.
Anti-sues are totally a thing, you talking about tropes? Your number one source of tropes has you covered:

Again, the whole "she represents magic and childish" you say is just your interpretation. What I see is an annoying kid that the anime developers are trying a bit too hard to make me like. An inorganic main character.

It's OK tho, most animes have TERRIBLE main characters.

>reads the anti-sue things

akko doesn't represent this though either

yeah, she exhibits some of the inverted tropes, but not all of them.

and to speak in these terms i think is highly unproductive

i get it, you tend to favor things that are unique and supremely unconventional, that is fine and i do too. but your evaluation lacks depth and understanding of the shows you are complaining about

i know you dislike akko, and that is fine. but to call her an inorganic main character, and an annoying kid that anime developers are trying to make you like shows that you aren't even attempting to read into what they are trying to accomplish

You do not have to represent all of something to be one thing.

>i know you dislike akko, and that is fine. but to call her an inorganic main character, and an annoying kid that anime developers are trying to make you like shows that you aren't even attempting to read into what they are trying to accomplish
I shouldn't be trying this hard to red into a character. If the character ruins what would have been an otherwise good series, then the character is at fault. I'm also not the only one who thinks Akko is the weakest link of Little Witch Academia. Just google "Little Witch Academia Akko bad character" and you will see the top five pages all of people complaining about Akko in one way or another.

Just because you like her, it doesn't means she is a good character.

SoL? Easily Ika Musume seasons 1 and 2. I've heard season 3 was really, really bad tho. Hopefully that's not the case. I loved that anime a lot.
CGDCT? I hate it beyond reason and wish it did not exist.

I have never played Splatoon. Can't afford the expensive Nintendo consoles that will become obsolete in a few years. But it seems like an OK game.

in this case, i would disagree. the anti-sue's main stake is that they are completely the invert of the mary-sue, to the point they are incompetent, yet still everything is done and they are liked

akko still has to work to get where she is by the end, and when people start giving her credit, it's because of her own sweat and tears getting there. she doesn't get any participation trophies, her accomplishments are of her own work, and she actively gets better. she isn't static. she is a fully fleshed character with an arc that reflects her progress

some shows don't require reading into the show, while others do, art doesn't have to "be" any one thing; it can be as simple or complex as the creators want.

if the character is well fleshed out, well made, but you still don't like them and opt out of the show, that is your choice and the show isn't for you. But that by no means is the fault of the character or the show, or the shows creators. and while i can see there are people that don't like the show because of her, then that is also their choice and their loss as well.

just because you hate her, it doesn't mean she isn't a bad character.

plus, i wouldn't even say it's hard to read her character or what she represents in the show. she isn't super complex, but she is exactly what the show needs

This argument is going in circles now. There's literally nothing else to add.
I already told you why I found Akko unbearable. But you love her too much to see pass that. Akko apparently is a perfect character and everyone should like them, or else the show is not for them.

Eh, I'd say that in the first 4 episodes, Akko is pretty much an anti-Sue.  She's plainly incompetent despite however much hard work she puts in.  Where my taste differs from Iara's is that I still like Akko and her show.


Episode 1 and that episode were they make a show on the city or something really do her no favours.
Also, I'm supposed to dislike Diana? Her groupie and her look far more interesting.

Probably in the beginning.  She develops more in later episodes though.

i disagree that she is an anti-sue at all

the first 4 episodes were more world-building

i mean, i will grant that the first 4 episodes don't show her gaining much as far as her magical skills, but we still see akko showing her positives as well as her negatives

episode 1; we are introduced to her love of magic and inspiration. and how her belief in herself and magic leads them to the shiny rod that kicks off her arc

episode 2: Diana's logical and deductive reasoning leads her to see the pods that are on the tree to be a parasite, which for all intents and purposes is a correct approach. it is only because of akko's card that she even knows what these pods maybe. Diana shoots, but akko acts on instict driven by her knowledge of the card and determination that the card is right, she jumps in front of the magic shot. and saves the pods, allowing them to release the faries. That entire episode is actually a microcosm of the show if you think about it, as it preludes everything that will happen in the show

episode 3: is purely about both akko's impulsiveness to join an event that she has no skill to join. but she uses tangential logic and cleverness to gain an upperhand. it also helps that sucy and lotte brought their own means to the race, and while akko did begin to ride the super broom at the end, it was still an insane feat to get on the darn thing to race

episode 4: that was more of a lotte episode overall, so Akko didn't really have much focus

we are introduced to akko's qualities as a person as she continues her quest to be a witch. and while she hasn't "gained" anything as far as magical ability, the audience gains knowledge of how akko survives, thrives, and what she brings to this world that the other witches and the system does not


Oof, 80% is as high as I go
