Mcjon’s blackout behavior:

pose for the group photo
get a taxi for my family to take them back to their hotel (I remember this part!)
I think from there I teleported across town to where I parked my bike earlier in the day? Not clear
when did I put on my shoes
Apparently I also bought a coke and a chocolate chip cookie which was, in hindsight, possibly a bit optimistic

Alcohol is literally only good for wanting stuff you currently don't have.

Someone to make out with.

A bed.

A clean shirt.

Not to be in a poorly cared for public bathroom.

To be somewhere that doesn't make your ears ring.

Mostly just too expensive or whatever fun it is, given these factors...

Part Japanese company power dynamics, part bad decision making about drinking stemming from already being drunk, and a large part getting bamboozled by whiskey (my normal hard stop point is tuned to drinking beer, but a stomach full of whiskey waiting to hit your bloodstream is a very different beast)

Touhoku my man, shit's so cash.

- Great food (Genghis Khan, Touhoku ramen broth is to die for [and literally you will die if you eat it too often be careful my man], Genghis Khan again)
- Cute mountains
- Cute rivers
- Cute locals who aren't used to seeing foreigners so their eyes pop and they stare super blatantly, making you feel like a unicorn
- Aomori is lit
- If you like snow (haha you're Snow you better like snow) you'll love the Touhoku winter
- If you get that urge to be somewhere urban Sendai is a nice city that won't suffocate you like Tokyo
- Look at these desolate fall colors they make me want to order a hot chocolate and read a book grind degenerate phone games in a cozy cafe

Split rooming expenses and buy a Japan Rail Pass. It ends up being surprisingly cheap. Petri and I traveled Japan for three weeks straight and I spent about $1200 on rooming, food and my rail pass.

that place was seriously godly

and I say that after having some really amazing locally recommended ramen in kyoto

but yeah I got the rail pass and it worked out pretty well, so I guess for Japan it's not the price but just time/difficulty in getting to some places.

Given how close Australia is to Japan and how cheap we can get flights there my parents think they might make it a yearly thing

That grilled sparrow reminds me of some nature documentary where a prehistorical bird chick hatched while his mom was out and got eaten by ants alive. Result looked about as miserable.

I do prefer having my meat dishes looking as far from original corpse as it possible, but the idea about a dishes like these must be to show that it's really some rare delicacy, not a specially seasoned chicken or something. There was a plate with a whole tiger on a banquet in Altered Carbon, made me curious whether tigers are edible IRL, but I'd never proceed to check.

Something always struck me as wrong about serving the face, and I can't decide whether it's that I don't like having the animal looking at me while I'm eating its corpse, or that I'm subconsciously imagining it to be somehow disrespectful to the critter, or both.

You’re not supposed to be respecting the sparrow because the idea is that you’re showing your respect to Inari the god of agriculture by consuming a pest bird that comes in and eats all the rice out of the rice field

Also they’re too small to strip down to only meat and small enough that you can just chew the bones anyway so that’s how they ended up

I don't know where to post this but I'm trying to get a new avatar and I'm really confused how it works (somehow forgot how I did it the first time). I've resized the image to 200 pixels like it says the maximum size is in settings, but when I then try to post it in it still shows some white space at the side as if the image wasn't big enough to cover all available space. Why is it doing this?

I'm totally confused on this so please humor my ignorance for a little bit. Is there a difference between 200 pixels and 200 by 200? If so, how do I enter in the former rather than the latter?

This (http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar) is the program I'm trying to use, if it helps.

Wouldn't doing it through Paint result in ugly compression artifacts though? I figured the sites have some special way of doing it that minimalizes those things (otherwise I would've just done it myself).

I made a terrible mistake, my gf found out my online username and basically reverse doxed me and stalked my old BL posts. Cringe >_<.
Everyone knows you're supposed to make the really embarrassing ones disappear when no one's looking.
(Not paranoid at all....)
Btw, welcome back.

Yeah, I have plenty of guy friends; some of them are even on here

Last time my bros saw me posting anime girls they banned me from the frat. I had to pound an entire keg to make up for it.

You remind me of the one guy at every con I attend, giving a speech about volunteering at the convention, about how much fun it is, about all the stuff you get as staff members. And every one of them looks dead on their feet (and in their eyes) as they say it.

I spent 1.2 grand on merch, I attended the trigger panel, hung out with some random weebs from kentucky, played L4D2 and MKX in the gaming hall. Attended the Sekai Project panel (which was kinda lackluster, although a couple of the vn's they announced seemed very interesting). Above all else I met and took a picture with Kaho Shibuya at the very last second before the exhibit hall closed, making the entire con worth the agony and confusion instilled in me by the shitty line caps. God bless AX.
