    TTTNE 475 - for the Honour of Greyskull!

    I didn't intend to lecture anyone, just to be supportive and encouraging. I read how you were feeling and recognize that not so long ago I felt similarly in a lot of ways, so I thought I'd contribute. For a long time, I didn't travel because I couldn't find people to travel with, but in the end, I had to accept that if I kept waiting around for people to travel with I'd never go anywhere. So I decided to go on my own even though it wasn't ideal - and I ended up making a lot more friends and finding more people to travel with that way. Anywho, it seems like posting back here wasn't a good idea, so maybe I'll catch you guys around some time down the road.

    I'm planning 3.5 weeks there in 2021

    Yes, this is what I meant haha. Well, I've mostly spent the past few years traveling to different places, such as Japan, the Americas, France, the Netherlands, and Australia and Singapore coming up. If I'm not at work or playing video games I'm trying to spend as much time as I can visiting far away places and cultures, making new friends and meeting up with people. Japan is the best FWIW. It's really rewarding and fulfilling, and I thought you might enjoy it too!

    But I mean more big trips further afield, places that are culturally different - see Korea, or Singapore, or Argentina! The UK thing was mostly just making dark jokes about Brexit destroying the country.

    @Buckwheat If I could offer some advice, take it or leave it - It might be a good idea to try traveling more and further afield on your own. I know it's not as romantic or the same as traveling with a partner, but there's time for all that. And getting away from home and exploring new places can do wonders for your confidence, self-esteem and general well-being. And who knows, you might meet someone while traveling as well. It can be scary at first, and its certainly different when you're traveling alone, but once you get used to it it offers an entire world of freedom and opportunity. And I don't really mean Europe, but further afield, the Americas, Asia, Australia etc. You might find it helps you embark upon that next chapter of your life - I've certainly found that it helped me to embark on mine. And if other continents are too far away, you could always visit the UK before it implodes entirely.

    They're from last summer and they're basically an interlude. Looks like they're calling that Season 2 though and we might be waiting for S3.

    Attack on Titan (Anime series)

    It'll probably be better than the last two adaptions to be fair. I'd actually say that it's mostly excellent, with the caveat that it stalls at one point (which will likely be towards the end of the season.) It lasts a number of chapters, but it might have felt longer due to having to wait a month per issue. What happens after that arc, the pay-off, as it were, is pretty interesting so far, but it needs some time to develop. I will say that the direction it's going in is better than the one I thought it might go in prior to that point. Yes, right after that.
  11. A 2013 survey in a paper by David Chalmers and David Bourget shows that 68% of professional philosophers would switch (sacrifice the one individual to save five lives) in the case of the Trolley Problem.

    How would you rate episode 306?

    I never said it was polite, just that it seems to be acceptable, according its portrayal on the show. You asked why would Tyrion do that, and the answer is that he did it because he could. You're saying that it was impolite, and unacceptable for Tyrion to barge into Sansa's room, and that this is clear to the viewer, so how do you maintain that Tyrion is being whitewashed?

    But he did... He had a servant announce him, and then entered. Clearly, within the fictional universe of the show, this is acceptable conduct, as none of the characters really object. I mean, Cersei knocked on Tyrion's door, but then threatened to have the Kingsguard break down Tyrion's door if he didn't open it.
