I can deal with dismemberment when the action doesn't focus on it. So, when Tien lost his arm, there were a few quick scenes that focused on that loss, but after that it was mostly just there as a reality of the battle. When I read the Toriko manga, it seemed to embellish the dismemberment and focus on it specifically with many scenes that focus particularly on the dismembered limb or the bodily wound itself. I don't like it when anime/manga dwell on the gory details.

-I haven't made any improvements when it comes to speaking German. I can understand the people I speak to just fine, but I can never seem to find the words I need to reply. When I've finally figured out what words I need (and in what order), they've already started speaking again. I've noticed some people find it endearing, but others are less nice. I don't want to appear inconsiderate (when you're in a foreign country, you should make an effort to speak the language, right?), but some of the reactions to my failings are not encouraging.

This is a huge problem in the US.  Shitheads who only speak English are constantly getting indignant at immigrants for not having perfect grammar/a heavy accent.  It's infuriating.

edit also, this (https://youtu.be/ZlATOHGj9EY) is roughly 100% accurate.  Everything sounds angrier in German.
I usually have patience when it comes to people in most cases (outward patience anyway), but language barriers in the US really piss me off. Maybe because it's always either spanish or middle eastern languages being tossed around, and less for the middle eastern languages because they actively try to learn english, but when I'm trying to order something or talk to a person who only speaks spanish this day and age...I get infuriated. Especially when i see them visibilly getting irritated with me for not knowing spanish. What the fuck, I live in the US, as do you. If I were in your country I'd make an attempt to learn at least conversational spanish but I'm not there, i'm here. Learn the fucking language, it's not my obligation to know yours.

I won't lie, even I feel i sound pompous and ignorant here, but imagine being a native new yorker, trying to talk to a cashier for a return and she looks at you like your fucking retarded and starts speaking spanish at you. Now assume this happens 3 times a week. My gym, my grocery stores, my local restaurants....at least one person in each of them speaks almost no english and still works there, infuriating non-spanish speaking people. Again, any other language I'm FAR more forgiving to because they often try to learn the language and at least seem apologetic when the words become convoluted, but spanish speaking people seem like they give no fuck and that it's our fault for being raised in an english speaking nation where they are not the majority.

Considering the state of the character, I think they have.
Explain.
Lard was probably thinking of Danny Pink.
It really isn't that hard to explain Orson considering the time traveling nature of the show. Clara goes back in time, runs into Danny... The rest writes itself.

Back from my vacation. Went somewhere with a beach, got two weeks of rain...Still had fun though. After over two years of trying, I finally convinced my girlfriend to step foot in a place with karaoke. She refused to sing but the hit and miss nature of people's renditions makes for a fun atmosphere and we ended up having a good time.

EDIT: I learned German from 8th- 12th grade (even won awards at competitions), so I *think* I could still get by if I were to vacation in Germany.  Part of me thinks I made the wrong decision to pursue German instead of Spanish, but I did what I did. 

Despite some setbacks and all (I've been quiet about this, but I blew out my knee worse than expected in June's ACS ride and had to stay off the roll for 6 weeks), I'm euphoric to be cycling again (I was so happy to ride with my cycling club again). It'll be some time before I'm doing metric centuries again, but I'll only get stronger from here, starting with a couple of shorter event rides I lined up for the fall:

9/12- (50km/ 31 mi) AJF Ride for Autism http://CLC-AJF.donorpages.com/AJFRide4Autism2015/NealChandran (I work in special ed so this one's for my students)

10/17- (45 mi/ ~72km)PD500 Rock 'n Roll Ride for Parkinson's Disease October 2015   https://fundraising.active.com/fundraiser/NEalChandran2 (I did this one last year for my mom and my late uncle, and am doing it again.)

I like the independent feel RPGFan reviews have. When reading something on IGN or Gamespot I never really know weather I'm reading a review or a sponsored advertisement. Big points for reviewing obscure titles (Especially when Neal was around). I personally hated the Laxius power games, but I appreciate someone taking the time to play and review what was obviously a labor of love. The latter is  actually one of the main reasons I applied for a reviewer spot when the draft was on.

Despite recent legislation, this is still relevant and still funny.

You're being rather picky with your rules but here goes:

1. Suikoden (Konami; Playstation) - Got me to love jRPGs and ticks all the boxes in my book.
2. Chrono Trigger (Square; SNES) - no explanation needed, its a classic that keeps on giving.
3. Mario & Luigi - Superstar Saga (Nintendo; GBA) - its simple, fun and oozes with charm.
4. Dragon Quest VIII (Level-5; Playstation 2) - Loads of charm, lots to do.
5. Knights of Pen & Paper + 1 (Behold Studios; Mobile) OK, the story may not be epic and it just barely beat out Wild Arms because I wanted to diversify platforms but its the prefect game to get you started with RPGs while sitting on the toilet.

Honorable mention: Final Fantasy XIII  (Square-Enix; Playstation 3, Xbox 360) - It's unintentionally hilarious and pretty much plays itself :)
Yes, it is a joke and another cheap shot at FFXIII

And we do it for free, just because we love it, so we really appreciate hearing nice things. :)
