Going by the above and on other sites, Texas where Funimation is based is an "at-will" state, which means employers don't need criminal/civil cases and can fire people for any reason. Whether Vic had this in his contract is unknown, but I wouldn't bet against him being protected in this case.

Of course, if you're not interested in being honest about this then why bother posting anything?

Pardon me, but I was not familiar with the Texan labor code. Now, if Texan employers can fire people for any reason, that's

1. Completely horrific.

and

2. Pointless, but not something I can argue with.

Also, bingo for the mention of the contract, which is what I mentioned at the start. You're putting words into my mouth. 'Sides, I will say what I want and you can listen or pretend you didn't read it. I don't care either way to be honest.

TL;DR If your contract/jurisdiction laws say you're on god's good humor, then it's all fine and dandy to sack someone for using an ugly tie. Otherwise, you've just shat all over the due process!

But I am not Texan, so what should I know?

Captain arrogance at his finest... If you spoke Spanish, I would accuse you of cunaismo, but the point is going to be lost on someone who's clearly seating in a horse too high to see beyond the immediate event.

Not letting people with you have a punchline and jump to conclusions. We barely know how his contract works and I worry about the very idea that people can be fired for sneezing in the wrong direction. Like, it genuinely pisses me off. That kind of treatment in Spain would end with a really big lump sum and media coverage in favor of the affected. This has less to do with Vic and more to do with Funi being just able to lay him off, no questions asked and owing him nothing in the event they get it all wrong.

I know it's Texas and not Spain, but... still... it doesn't piss me off any less.

i've felt extremely sick watching a video for the first time. so, basically, after reading about a woman who was recently killed in mexico by one of the cartels over there (it happens all the time), someone described a video where undercover cop and his son are kidnapped, cop is beheaded and the kid is flayed alive and his heart ripped out -- got curious, didnt take long to find the video in question. but it wasn't that one that 'got' me. it was another one on the same site where a guy's face had been peeled off and his hands removed, whereupon they continue to torture / mutilate him while he's still conscious / alive it wasn't the act that made me sick, but that his peeled mouth and eyes were moving and you could hear his muffled, bloody whimperingalso the comments were weird as fuck, but that's to be expected on a site like that. some people are just fucking wierdos that even i raise an eyebrow at

Says the person who's ignoring credible accounts and evidence from multiple accusers just to moan about how cruel and unjust it is that people decide to remove a toxic personality from their workplace because of said evidence.

Bitching about the law is pointless when this isn't covered in the law and bringing up fringe cases and hypotheticals to try to defend Vic is essentially trolling. You're saying it's fine if people decide to be jerks to you and others at work and that they can keep their jobs even if they are hurting others.

I am not defending Vic. You must be confusing me with the other guy who actually was.

What I am talking about is essentially if a company can remove a person on their own volition without the state saying "hold on". Apparently, this is the case in Texas and I've acknowledged it as such (no clue because I didn't bother reading into your post, I just took it at face value and assumed your argument was truthful). THIS is what worries me because it means the law cannot protect people from extortion. I am not saying this case is so, but I would be worried if there wasn't at least some laws that forced the company to compensate you for removing you if an investigation says you've been removed unlawfully. I am not saying he should be allowed to continue, but in those scenarios, you furlough them. They stay home without pay until the investigation is done. If you're guilty, the furlough turns into a sacking. If not, you get compensation for all the time you weren't paid, just like US Govt workers during shutdown.

Essentially, plenty of people having a legitimate complaint (or hell, one person with a legitimate and verifiable complaint) is a fair reason to get sacked if confirmed. Having a mob of people who hate you and can badmouth you off a company is hell for worker's rights. You have no clue how often I ended up working with people who wanted me off my workplace (apparently, showing favoritism to the best worker under you is a bad thing) and how they knew they had no recourse because making something up or saying X, Y and Z would've launched an investigation into the issue and if I was cleared, the company would have to compensate me for the time I would be laid off, not lay me off until the Tribunal sent their ruling and even take fire those who were guilty of conspiring against me.

If you can point me to a similar set of protections existing in Texas, I'll shut up and say this can't happen. Hell, I wasn't even into the Vic issue when I learned about it. I simply felt the ability to fire someone on request with no actual court verdict (thus, "people's justice" or what I'd call "mob rule" is the one who judges people) is something I would be wary off and that I hope it's not as simply as telling someone to pack up their stuff without a professional's input.

Take it from someone who's been in that actual position (thus it's personal) where, had I been in Texas, I would've lost that job. People's words are NOT reliable unless they can be corroborated by professionals or authorities.

I just wrapped it up (hopefully).

I'm still horrorized by the fact so many US states have no implied contract exception... in other words, it's 100% their call unless you can claim the employer was forcing you to do something illegal or happen to be member of a "protected group".

Secondly, Funimation did do an investigation when the allegations arose before firing Vic, it's even stated in their tweet about Vic. This isn't random people complaining and gettimg their way, some of the stuff was looked at and Funi ended up deciding it wasn't worth keeping him. Witness accounts and photos are evidence enough for them as they aren't the law or justice. They don't need trials and courts to decide for them whether to keep someone or not.

Which has zero relation to the derail about potential worker abuse and lack of such protection. Unless you have some reports or such that this is a big problem in Texas or similar places, it's essentially pointless.

When I told a co-worker this was the last week before I finish my residency and I felt like due to the extremely high unit acuity it felt like a boss rush, his response was this: it’s not a boss rush, I’ll tell you what this is. See I am on today and Monday, and then off for an entire month because my kid is being born. ...and what this unit is, right now, is that moment in resident evil 2 where you walk into a room and it’s filled with health packs, ammo, and a save type writer, you don’t know what’s behind the door except you are gonna die horribly...and you know you don’t have an ink ribbon to save.

Odd story that just happened. I have a coworker who likes playing pranks on folks. As a therapist on a high acuity unit I am by nature jumpy due to occasions where I have been jumped by homicidal patients.

i do a double check walking into the unit, checking for patients skulking behind doors looking to shank or slope.

well, he managed to slide right into my blind spot as I was looking the other way and then as I was turning back around he lunged at me imitating an attack. This should have basically turned me into one of those cartoon cata hanging onto the roof. He executed it perfectly.

...but I just stood there staring. I have no idea why I didn’t completely freak out, but somehow I just knew I wasn’t in danger so it just rolled off. after probably way to much thought on the subject, I can only come up with one conclusion.

thats right, I read the lack of killing intent. I have become one with the animez

I should probably state that I do have a boyfriend but he keeps me at arms length so I have trouble gauging where our relationship is at. He's one of those guys that really likes his own space & won't even let me come over to his place. I trust him but I sometimes think he's hiding something. I'd move in with him if I could but he'd probably hide in the woods. Literally. So I envy couples that get to live together.

I was referring to sucking at being in relationships, I guess? I tried to flirt with him but I bothered him instead.

I decided to buy material for a new cosplay. Which means.... I have to figure out how to build bat wings.
I have a vague idea but I need to figure out what is the best, light-weight material to build a frame out of.

And maybe buy a new wig.... need to check if I have 1 I can reuse.

Even though it might sound odd, it turns out the burglar that broke into one of the empty flats was actually the owner's son. The window facing the street had been left wide open by a visitor, and he broke in to close it since it was cold and rainy at the time and the windows can only be closed from the inside.

Ok I have a really odd question.

how many holds do you have to be in before you can actually do one?

I came out on a unit code, and one guy (good man!) had prevented another patient from attacking a girl by putting him in a pretty damn good hold. Even better, when I took over, he did a perfect transition to tag out.

the only thing I can think of is either he has seen enough holds, or been in enough, he has worked out the mechanics of one. It’s oddly unnerving.

If not that or my Claymore thing, there was also,


I thought of an one-shot / short-story idea where Theresia, after much hardship in following the Black Swordsman's shadow, learns to finally let go of her anger after a "chance" encounter with Skull Knight. Something along the line of her trying to get in possession of a Beherit to get revenge, Skull Knight has been going around eating said Beherits to create his astral tear sword, they go on a brief Beherit egg hunt together, and everything is in within the law of causality. I also would like to incorporate another flower spirit similar to Chitch into the story somehow (perhaps as a foil to Theresia like Puck is/was to Guts), but, for now, that's all I've thought of.


After her encounter with Skull Knight, instead of sticking to Guts and long before becoming another companion of his, she actually becomes a member of the Reborn Band of the Falcon after "befriending" Sonia. Thereafter, she learns more about Guts from her, Luca, then Rickert, and decides to flee alongside the latter, Erica, and those Kushan assassins(?) after he slaps Griffith. From there... awkward bonding time until Guts and everyone else get back from Elfhelm?

Depends entirely on which God you're talking about, but most capital G monotheistic Gods will tell you they're the reason humanity is doing anything at all. It's kind of hard to argue with a Being whose plans are literally ineffable for your puny mind.

Tell me more about the Claymore thing...

It focused on Dietrich and Galatea during the timeskip.

Led by two burly men into the chamber, Dietrich looked over at a table with various instruments, all of them bloodied to some extent. The floor was bathed in crimson scars, the walls covered in darkness. As her ruined shoes were shuffled across the chamber to the chains that were to bind her in place, she felt the dampness they'd spoken of; tears and torment. Spit, vomit; anything that someone in the most unbearable of pains would spew forth in their coping with the pain. The sodomizing of their heart and raping of their soul.

Her arms were held up, cuffed on the wrists by the chains that hung from the ceilings; her legs by the chains secured to the floor. Her clothes were removed and she stood there naked, exposed to the men in black attire that now entered the room.


One of them placed something on the table, wrapped in a dirty cloth. Whatever was inside moved. The other took one of the sharper-looking instruments from the table and something else. Something round, like a pill. He came up to her and shoved the pill-like object into her mouth and down her throat. As she gagged and spit and cursed his existence, he went back to the table.


The way he walked was… hazy. The room felt as if it were spinning and Dietrich started to lose all sense of where she was, what she'd been doing till then, and what was about to happen. Another, even heavier sedative.


Drool leaked from her mouth as she tried keeping her head up, making out that the man who'd given her the pill was back, rubbing the front of her body with something. It was wet and it burned. Badly. She wanted to cry out from what felt like a thousand hot embers being needled into every pore in her skin but bit down on her lip, blood mixing in with the drool. She wasn't… not anymore. For Heinrike's sake and that of the others.


The other man, the one who'd set that moving cloth down, was making sure her chains were rigid and no amount of force would break them. When he finished and nodded to his partner, her back hit something solid, and she was lowered down, now resting on a table that hadn't been there before. And, then, what felt like cold metal being pressed to the spot just above her chest. Her throat. The pressing became a stab, and she heard a squelch as the blade started moving downwards. Down and down, further and further until it reached her just above groin area.


"Pain is… Well, there are two types of pain, Dietrich…"


As the blood started to pool at the incision the other man produced another cloth and patted her down. When the man with the sharp instrument came back with the dirty cloth that'd been on the table, the other man slowly and carefully parted the skin that'd been cut.


"The first is physical, and those can always go away with time…"


She saw the man unwrap the cloth. Something fleshy and dark in color, like a very moldy green, was now in his hand. He tore it apart and sprinkled it all along the incision he'd made.


"The second is emotional…"


When he finished, the other man took what looked to be oversized thread and needle, which he proceeded to weave in and out of her skin, closing the incision.


"Emotional pains, unlike physical, never go away."


And, when they stepped back and waited, that was when the agony started. Whatever it was that'd been sprinkled inside of her was wrapping itself around her intestines and pushing its way into her bloodstream. Writhing, she closed her eyes.


"Sure, you can lock them away so they don't hurt you anymore, but in truth they never leave you…"


Biting down all the harder, her body felt as if it were being drowned in burning oil, and, in her spasms, she tried to remember Miss Elda's words to her. That physical pain was nothing if you could endure it. She remembered Heinrike.


"And, when brought to the surface again…"


The memories of their time together, the way she always acted so timid. Afraid of everything and, yet, when push came to shove, always dependable. Always there for her. Always able to cool the waters between her and Alric.


The softness of her eyes, the warmth of her smile. Sweet and never threatening. Beautiful brown hair, a nose which looked too small compared to those big blue eyes. A stuttering, quiet voice. One that would never speak again.


"They are never-ending."


And that was when her howls began.

The whole idea spawned from their drinking contest in the epilogue. I expanded on what we learned of Dietrich's backstory in the manga, weaving it together with Galatea's journey to whichever city it was where she destroyed her own eyes and became a priest. It was 6 chapters in before I kinda just left it hanging... It was supposed to end with that drinking contest then an arm-wrestling match. I still have my notes, sparse though they are.

As the blood started to pool at the incision the other man produced another cloth and patted her down. When the man with the sharp instrument came back with the dirty cloth that'd been on the table, the other man slowly and carefully parted the skin that'd been cut.


"The first is physical, and those can always go away with time…"


She saw the man unwrap the cloth. Something fleshy and dark in color, like a very moldy green, was now in his hand. He tore it apart and sprinkled it all along the incision he'd made.


"The second is emotional…"


When he finished, the other man took what looked to be oversized thread and needle, which he proceeded to weave in and out of her skin, closing the incision.


"Emotional pains, unlike physical, never go away."


And, when they stepped back and waited, that was when the agony started. Whatever it was that'd been sprinkled inside of her was wrapping itself around her intestines and pushing its way into her bloodstream. Writhing, she closed her eyes.


"Sure, you can lock them away so they don't hurt you anymore, but in truth they never leave you…"


Biting down all the harder, her body felt as if it were being drowned in burning oil, and, in her spasms, she tried to remember Miss Elda's words to her. That physical pain was nothing if you could endure it. She remembered Heinrike.


"And, when brought to the surface again…"


The memories of their time together, the way she always acted so timid. Afraid of everything and, yet, when push came to shove, always dependable. Always there for her. Always able to cool the waters between her and Alric.


The softness of her eyes, the warmth of her smile. Sweet and never threatening. Beautiful brown hair, a nose which looked too small compared to those big blue eyes. A stuttering, quiet voice. One that would never speak again.


"They are never-ending."


And that was when her howls began.

I'm interested. Hardly anyone cares about Galatea, she practically got written out of the story midway and demoted to peanut gallery/fight announcer.

mah heart

Love the vocals, but the composition could use some work. 90% of the song is the exact same chord progression over and over.

Steel string reminds me of this guy though. Most of his work are covers, but he's pretty damn good.

I love Minami, her vocals are hardcore.

She should do an opening or ending for one of Type-Moon's properties. Tsukihime remake when.

Yes. I tend to write about the secondary and side characters more than the main or widely recognizable ones. It's why I don't like writing Shirou.

Minami is all about the vocals. Like Five said, they're hardcore.

Nice covers, btw.

This could be good for a Tsukihime ED by her (kinda tired of Fate but it could work for prototype tbh):

Some day I will manage to stop self-destructing by listening to sad shit at 4am, but that day is probably not today.
Or yesterday. Tomorrow. whatever

Yesterday was the first time I ever experienced a complete communication breakdown while speaking face-to-face with a native English-speaker (of my own accent and dialect, even). Made me feel like an idiot.

What happened? I mean, I often don't understand how some Americans speak when they drawl to the point it comes out as "frhfhrhfrhfrhb" but it's hardly a breakdown when you can tell where it's heading.

For some reason, it always happens with Best Buy staff. Rarely with anyone else.

What happened?

I was asking a cobbler about having some shoes modified, but all his answers were so roundabout and seemingly only tangentially-related to my questions that I couldn't follow him. I'd ask him, "Are you saying _____?" and I couldn't get a yes or no reply. That and I think he was half-deaf.

The song itself is really sad but what's worse is the buttclenching nostalgia it triggers. Man, watching nico nico vids all day as a teen, good times.

Am I weird in that if I ever met God, the first thing I'd do is to try and shoot Him in the metaphysical face and or slay Him in some way or another?

I'm surprised you even found a cobbler.
