I think Mesh has been pushing kids to see how they react, again.

Gotta have a hobby.

Some very neglected children won't cry as much as children who aren't neglected. They either learn that their parents don't respond to it at all, or they respond to it negatively.

It's very sad. My dad volunteers for the Childrens Panel in Scotland and has seem some very rough cases.

As for a healthy kid with relatively attentive parents, I imagine they will still cry, just for the attention. They would have to fall down a lot and it be ignored completely for them not to.

That being said I've seen kids fall and then get back up again to go play more. I think it depends whether or not they bored or wanting attention.

Is there a Hooker job-class in Bravely Second? Dem boots.

Just saw in the paper a girl I went to school with is dead. We grew up in the same village, and while I never knew her closely, she was always friendly to me.

I had heard her life had turned very tragic after I left school. Drugs, prostitution, abusive boyfriend. So sad. I'll remember her as the good person she was in school.

My feelings towards Opal are totally rational and not at all biased due to her creepy eyes.

Korra

Code:
Every episode I get a little more and more convinced that Opal is evil. Suyin was particularly suspicious this episode as well. She arrived very late to that fight scene and was making a HUGE show of how mad she was that the Four Elemental Crystal- er, I mean Benders got through her security. Not to mention how practically her entire palace is run by ex-criminals. This is my eyes is just laying the ground work for why Suyin would know and work with those four.

Why she helped Lin stop them kidnapping Korra, I don't know. She could have done it to save face, if nothing had went wrong she wouldn't have needed to show she was on Korra's side. But when it all went tits up, she had to, in order to keep a mole close to Korra. Obviously Aiwei had his part to play and isn't innocent.

The Four Elemental benders obviously don't want Korra dead, which makes me wonder as to what their intentions are. I'm not convinced they are strictly evil, I think we are heading towards a reveal that will show them in a different light, a more noble light. Greater good, maybe?

So, Opal is at the Northern Air Temple. She was pretty adept at Air Bending, or at least grasped it exceptionally quick for a newbie. Almost as if she had a teacher before besides Korra, someone who knew Air Bending. Someone like....Zaheer?? Dun dun dunnnn.

It just occurred to me that American monopoly boards probably don't use London streets as the properties.

Finished A Feast For Crows. Now onto A Dance With Dragons.


Spoilers and questions that I probably don't want people to answer if they are spoilers for a Dance with Dragons.

Code:
A lot of Dorne in this book and a lot of Kings Landing. Which is fine with me, I liked Dorne and I liked the new characters. Prince Doran and Arianne, Ser Arys and the Sand Snakes. Though there was very little of the Sand Snakes in the book as a whole. We were introduced to them near the start, then Doran locked them in a tower and I never saw them again. I thought they were gonna have a big role to play, but that went to Arianne.

King's Landing with Cersei were fun chapters. Basically drunk as fuck Cersei paranoid and seeing enemies in every shadow. Sending people she doesn't like down to Qyburn for unknown but apparently incredibly prolonged and gruesome experiments ala Joseph Mengele. The sparrows are an interesting development. Extreme religious zealots with an army. Nicht su gut.

Sam was on a boat for about 3/4 of the book. The only thing really to note of his voyege was the death of Measter Aemon, which is very sad. I liked him a lot as a character. He got very prophetic there towards the end.

Arya is doing interesting stuff in Braavos. As far as I can see, the name changes, the information gathering, learning to control her face, it seems to be leading her to being a Faceless Man. I may be wrong though. Last I saw her she was blind.

Sansa needs to kill Robert Arryn pretty soon. Sometimes I wish I could throw him through the Moon Door myself. He has a mark on his back now anyway, since Littlefinger is marrying Sansa off to Roberts heir should he die.

Greyjoys. Lots more Greyjoys. Vicatarion chpaters are the least interesting. Asha and sea-water drinking Damphair guy are more interesting. Asha because she's good a sharp tongue, and Damphair because he's fucking crazy. Crows Eye seems like a bit of a twat, but at least he's interesting.

Brienne and Podrick. I...I'm devastated. Brienne is one of my favourite characters. Lady Stoneheart...she lives up to her name. You've changed Cat, you've changed. I'm still holding hope that she's alive. We have no conformation that her and Pod are dead. (I really don't care about Ser Hyle, though I'm glad that septon got set free, he was a cool guy. And Dog too.)

I wasn't expecting to see Imogen Heap lyrics in this thread, but I'm not complaining.

Scotland got a gold medal for Judo at the Commonwealth Games today.

Of course this means they play our national anthem, which NO ONE KNOWS THE LYRICS TOO. It's always so cringey.

We need a better national anthem, Flower of Scotland is so shit.

I've always been more fond of "Highland Cathedral".

Flower of Scotland is about winning a victory over England, while Highland Cathedral is more about having a love for our beautiful country.

Hearthstone Naxxramas (or however its spelt) is out, but i can't play it. T_T Servers overloaded.

The characters really come alive as the story goes on.

How do you beat Persona 4 Golden in 25 hours? o.o

I was closer to 80 hours.

Been watching Frasier at work....because I pretty much have nothing else to do.

It holds up well. I'd forgotten how much of a British farce the show sometimes turns into.

Only three more seasons to go!
Did you figure out what to do with those tossed salads and scrambled eggs?

*Dyuuuu* (bass sound)

....they're calling again.

doo doo doo

GOODNIGHT EVERYBODY!


Added just a bit (because I kept hearing it in my head otherwise!!!)
http://laughingsquid.com/the-story-behind-frasiers-tossed-salad-and-scrambled-eggs/
And a URL to explain some of the "huh-what?" about the lyrics.

Legend of Korra!  ...Sans Korra!!

= Yeah there was like no Korra this week.  I honestly think the girl gets way too much hate most of the time.  Anyways.    ....Oh, Asami was completely gone too.

= So was Toph.... such a shame.  But alas, the present is more important.  But also, who made the metal city?  Toph was busy with police work a while quite some time, but she seems quite revered there anyways.  Bah, whatever.

= I don't really know where this season is going... Despite Season 2's flaws, it was much more "epic" in scope and scale in terms of where it was all heading down (and I'd argue probably a better end-note to leave off on for TLoK given its connection to the first Avatar).  Right now we got the 4 evil elemental "Sailor Scouts" getting around the country....aaand...?  Nevertheless, I *do* think its good whenever the show has the opportunity to flesh out its other cast members, The Last Airbender managed some of its best episodes this way too.

= Needless to say, the fight between Su and Lin was epic.  Then again, this show has *never* had a problem with some truly awesome looking kung fu.  Opal is also, like, the sweetest thing on the planet.

= I also love that this show isn't afraid to create, daresay, less perfect-looking characters.  There's no doubt that TLA and TLoK take a lot of anime inspiration, but doesn't fall into the extreme aspects of *always* making it about looking pretty like this bullshit does.  If a character is old, then they'll show it (with the exception that a lot of these character do stay fit....cuz martial arts).  Bumi is a great example of this because he has just some gut but still stays fit in other areas.  Hell, both of the female villains are far from beautiful; one has missing limbs and cheek bones that could cut through glass and the other shaves her head on either side. Korra herself is hardly petite but actually quite bulky and muscular.  And as usual, the animation has been top notch to keep things looking 'pretty' in other ways.

= On that, it's quite a star-studded cast that comes in to record these days, isn't it?  I don't know what (to be fair) B-list celeb hasn't had a voice credit on either Korra or even TLA.

= OMG.  Bosco!!  Did the show really just suggest what I think it suggested?!?!?

Also, has Mako done anything this season except glare at that boy? I guess they don't really know what to do with Asami these days. We should get more tension between her and Varrick.

I don't know where it's going either. I'm enjoying it though, it feels like the first season of Aang. Just moseying along, seein the sights, getting to know our characters.

Didn't Suyin and her husband build the Metal City? I thought he designed it at least. Toff did come from a very wealthy family, even before she became world famous as the first metal bender. I think she could get the money for it.

RE the bear. I KNOW RIGHT? WTF, that got dark.

PS. Opal is evil. I have nothing to back this up, other than her eyes creep me out.

July can officially suck my dick. First I got in a car accident and now I get a text after a wonderful weekend telling me that my apartment was broken into and my ps3,ps4, and all my games were stolen. I am so fucking done.

I'm so sorry. *hugs* :( <3 you don't deserve it dude.

Also, Klutz gives good advices.
