    I never meant to imply you were knocking at homeless people and I don't think I implied anywhere that that's what I was trying to do. My comment about Scandinavia was merely a comment on your claim that high taxes and large government had anything to do with passive citizens(it's obviously my opinion that there isn't any connection)

    From my understanding it was more about taxation without representation that was the triggering factor, not just the taxation itself(and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong :))

    And yes I agree on the stepped on part, it's why I prefer a proportional representative democracy, because even if politicians go bad there too(politicians go bad everywhere) it's a easier to get rid of em, and it's easier to change the course of government(enough people just needs to vote for a different party/bloc in the next election), in the end the citizens have more power(in my opinion anyway)

    I don't know that I'd call it "penis envy" :p because I certainly wouldn't exchange my government for yours voluntarily and it certainly has nothing to do with needing to feel better about myself.
    One thing that usually annoys me is the typically American opinion that more capitalism and a smaller state is the solution to everything and that everybody who disagrees is a Communist(yes I'm generalizing so this isn't aimed at you or Summer-Time-Fun, although I did originally think that that's where Summer-Time-Fun was going).
    The internet being what it is, when politics ends up being discussed it's usually US politics, partly because there's a whole lot of Americans on the internet and partly because western media loves to spam the rest of us with Supreme Court this or that, Senate/House of Representatives this or that, Obama/GWB this or that so everybody gets some insight whether they want to or not. And as I said earlier I don't mind a good discussion :D so I've ended up discussing US politics before.
    Plus your government loves to put their fingers in everybody's cookie jars, so pretty much everybody ends up having an opinion on the US and the US Government.
    Barely anybody but the locals will ever know anything about Swedish, Belgian, South African or Indian politics, the most they'll know is that IKEA and ABBA are from Sweden and maybe that Sweden has a king. So while I certainly wouldn't mind discussing the flaws and problems of the Swedish government that just never happens because pretty much nobody has any clue whatsoever about it.

    If you ever decide to move to the US just be aware that the US is a huge country and the cost of living can vary from state to state and city to city.Many parts of the US you can buy a 2-3 bedroom home for under 50,000USD while in other parts of the US you would lucky if that same amount of money got you a tiny lot with nothing on it. Some states have state income taxes while others do not.Some cities have higher property taxes than others.Some states have what is called school choice, which means your kids do not have to be stuck to the schools in your neighborhood. Sales tax can also vary from different places. Laws regarding marijuana,guns,alcohol,gambling and even porn can very from state to state. So do your research first if you do decide to move to the US.

    Thanks for providing this information.
    Yes I know things like prices, taxes and laws vary a lot all over the US because the individual states are relatively free to act on their own. I experienced that a few years ago when I travelled through a few states.
    Of course I would not move to places like New York or the SF Bay Area - that wouldn't be much of a financial release. Surely I would do more research to see where I could live a good life if I decide to move. I have a distant relative living in the panhandle of Florida - he could give me some further advice for sure. A problem could be getting the permission to live in the US permanently. Most likely I need to find a decent job there to get the permission.

    But so far I haven't thought that far because at the moment things like family, friends and opportunities here have held me back.

    There are some really great states here that would love to have you. If you like the snow and forest the north midwest is underpopulated, much cheaper per se, and just a great place to be. There are still some great coastal areas to live (some greater than others) while I would suggest the Carolinas, Texas is probably a lot more affordable to live on or near the coast. Some states are definetly better to live in the others, I would stay away from California and NY (the armpits of the USA) and I am personally no fan of New England in general. Big fan of the west and midwest though, great people, decent laws, great countryside and being in the farmbelt means lower food prices. If you can't stay, please visit. Sometimes a change of scenery can give one a different perspective on life.

    Neighbors who insist on everybody in the neighborhood knowing about their problems. Instead of trying to keep their problems to themselves these people insist on arguing loud for everyone else in the neighborhood to hear. Don't these people realize how fucking inconsiderate it is to the neighbors to be yelling and screaming off the top of your lungs?If these people wish for the world to know their problems there is a tv show called Jerry Springer or Maury Povich or some other white trash show. I am sure they will be more than happy to fly them in and pay them a few hundred bucks to make fucken fools of themselves for the amusement of idiots back home.

    UFO nuts who believe space aliens helped people build the pyramids and other shit. These people call themselves ancient astronaut theories and insist that our ancestors were too stupid to do anything on their own so they must have had help from aliens.Worst of all this garbage is on history channel.This goes along with their UFO and big foot nonsense and other crap that doesn't have squat to do with history.

    We live in a galaxy we've have not completely explored, yet there are trillions of galaxies out there. How could you be so sure these people are simply nuts?
    If you can tell me where the end of the sky is, or the answer to infinity, you'll have the right to label them UFO nuts. Anything else is just speculation regarding your concrete opinion.

    I'd say they're no worse than any other flavour of religion, as long as they don't actively force themselves on you(like some varieties of religious door knockers do), you can just switch channel or otherwise ignore/drown out the noise.

    What really pisses me off is people who have no religion preaching to others about religion and/or about how superior it is not to have any. Just what the world needs, more know-it-alls.

    I didn't say, nor was I trying to say that any particular form of religion or lack thereof is superior, everybody has the right to believe in whatever they please or to not believe, It is a fundamental human right.
    But it's also true that religious friction is(and has been for a very long time) one of the leading causes of conflict in the world, which is why I do think that it would be better if we all learned to not take offense(within reason, not trying to say that we should ignore atrocities just because they're done in the name of some God, or for that matter Atheism) just because somebody doesn't share our view on how the world was created or how the god/gods really want us to live our lives.

    Not trying to be a know-it-all, but saying that all UFO worshippers are Scientologists is like saying that all Christians are in the Westboro Baptist Church(most Christians have probably never even heard of these crazy nutjobs) or that all Muslims are members of IS, etc.

    I hate when the camera stops too soon after male finishes on Porn girl. We want to know if she enjoyed it or not, did he aim accurately, or were expectations too high and try harder next time....

    Drivers who are in a hurry piss me off. I mean what in life is so important that someone would be willing to kill themselves and/or others in order to get there a little faster. You would think if one didn't care that much about thier own life then they would have the decency to give two shits about anothers. You wonder why old people drive slow? That is how they got to be old! seriously though, you don't have to drag ass to get somewhere safely, just slow it down and arrive alive.

    And why not use turn signals!? Let people know where you are going before you go there! That is why they frigging have them installed in the car! it is not like they are ornaments or are only used for special occasions. Use them every time you change lanes, whether you see someone or not because you just might have missed someone.

    There always seems to be some idiot that joins this forum then bitches about what is shared here. It puts my tolerance under duress it does. People that have nothing better to do than bitch about how JAV is censored or make wild accusations about Junior Idols like they are some kind of expert on the industry and all its' models or they knock gravure Idols for being too sexy or not sexy enough. I don't care if a member has been lurking here a few years and finally asks for a re-up or reseed on something he is really interested in, I know it pisses some members off but not me. But signing up just to trash lolicon or hentai or complain about filehosts? Fucking trolls is all they are and they piss me off to no end. If you don't like what is shared here go somewhere else or at least have the common decency not to insult those that do enjoy what Akiba-Online has to offer and shut-the-fuck up. Show a little gratitude is all I am saying, it is just good manners like "please" and "thank you". Any civilized person can do it.

    Blatantly dishonest anti-smoking commercials. Basically the anti-smoking nazis have these idiotic commercials where they claim tobacco companies are targeting kids by making strawberry, grape or some other flavored tobacco products. One commercial they have what looks like a icecream truck selling flavored cigarettes and another commercial I see where the kids are going through the packages of flavored tobacco products and they claim the tobacco companies are targeting these towards little kids. I do know know if these anti-smoking nazis know this but companies make flavored products for adult.Its why liquor stores do not just sell plain beer, plain vodka, plain whiskey, plain gin, one kind of wine or just straight grain alcohol. They sell all kind of alcholo in different flavors. So by the smoking nazis logic the liquor companies must be marketing to kids by selling strawberry, apple, or some other flavor of booze.

    What is worse, they often make the smoking companies pay for those advertisements....seriously. Good thing corporations understand the value of "there is no such thing as bad publicity". All they are really doing is advertising cigarettes and the cigarette companies know it. Fucking dumbass antis, let people make their own choices and stop trying to make them for everybody. Nobody likes being told what to do.

    I used to like Peppermint Schnapps, back when I was younger. When I was underage though I mainly drank beer. It takes a discriminating palate to appreciate liquers but I would have to say my favorite is Drambuie. When you are a kid it all tastes the same....horrible (alcohol is actually a poison to the body...literally...it is just not lethal in small doses).

    Personally, I hate democrats. They make me physically ill, as in I want to puke. Almost everything they say pisses me off. They are like a stranger reaching over to give me a handjob just to get my vote.....totally transparent and unsincere. I would vote for Vladmir Putin before I would vote for Hilary Clinton.

    Another thing that pisses me off (and yes, there is more than one): Some idiot sharing a dual audio anime torrent with hardcoded subs! I mean seriously? why the hell would I need to watch subs on a dub?!!? Took me three frigging days to download that as it is the only dual audio available and know it is no good to me nor would I even consider sharing it. arrggghhh! Why don't some idiots check their encodes or torrents before sharing them?! It is hard to be grateful for a share that is fucked up.

    It amazes more people don't use this thread to vent...its' theraputic.

    And another thing that pisses me off, changing the order on Japanese names. It just seems disrespectful as hell, it is bad enough people tend to ignore the honorifics (even in subs) but the family name is considered more important and that should be said first whether americans or europeans do it that way or not. They change the name in the Wiki and even in at IMDB!, places where you would think that they would know better. From what I gather you just don't call someone by their first name in Japan, it is considered rude and overly familar, a right reserved for those that know you very well. Maybe if they included the honorifics in subs and dubs people would take the time to get to know them.

    When I was a kid you called adults as sir or maam and Mr, Miss or Mrs. Even today doctors are referred to with their honorary title. Having manners and showing respect for each other is what makes this a better world for everyone. I didn't vote for him but I still wouldn't go up and say "Hey Barack! how is it hanging?" and I seriously doubt that the Japanese refer to him as "Obama Barack" either, because at least they don't try to change our language to suit them. I may not agree with everything that I read about Japan but they could teach us a thing or two about honor and manners that we seem to have forgotten.

    So next time someone starts a thread in one of the Idol sections, please, last name before the first name. Show a little respect for the girls.

    Conservatives who support Donald Trump. Why preach conservative beliefs and speak out against liberal politicians and establishment republicans only to vote for someone who practically yesterday upheld liberal beliefs that you oppose and donated money to liberal candidates and establishment Republicans you oppose? It would be like liberal democrats rushing to vote for Rush Limbaugh if several months ago Rush Limbaugh started saying socialism, elective abortion, strict gun control, open borders, amnesty for illegals, single payer health care, minimum wage, carbon tax credits and other liberal things are great and he promises to enact single payer health care despite saying back and forth saying he wouldn't enact single payer. I don't any liberal democrat would be that stupid in that situation. But yet conservatives are flocking to Trump even though at one time there was 14 or 15 other choices. And the most idiotic thing from conservative Trump supporters is the claim that Donald Trump tells it like it is or says what he means even though that man has said liberal things and said certain liberal politicians were great just prior.
