    I am kinda glad my government doesn't fund people getting a PhD in anime.

    Just saying... that doesn't seem like a great use of public funding.

    Compared to what? Sports PhDs?

    Compared to Australia, where they apparently do.

    Oh you fucking shits

    Why are you loading loot onto the fucking bus when I'm still trying to bag up shit in the vault

    A calorie is a measure of heat like a degree or a thermometer. To lose calories, just get very cold.

    this is actually very true

    the reason it doesn't work is the "calories" listed on food are actually kilocalories

    so you have to get very very very cold for a very long time

    This fact constantly galls me.

    So much about energy measurement does so:

    Why is everything in kilocalorie and kilojoules? Like, in Australia we have our dietary requirements expressed in kJ , but they are actually kkJ. F uuuu

    Why do Americans use a metric measurement of energy?

    Wait, you use kkJ? Your total dietary requirement is 8.3? That seems really weird.

    I'm still trying to figure out how the hell I got put in a calculus class after dropping out of trigonometry.

    Ironically, everyone failed that class anyway because they literally had the wrong teacher for the class and didn't bother to correct that after they found out their error.

    Nah, it's fine. Most PhD dissertations are equally "useless", and I include STEM stuff in that. It's more about the process of working rigorously, and in long-form, to create knowledge. That skill is valuable and highly transferrable, assuming the institution has standards. I'd rather we funded anime PhDs to students willing and able to get them over denying assistance to save money or to try to force people into more practical fields.

    て、パラレルワールドを用いて述べる。
    Yojōhan shinwa taikei is a 2010 anime adaptation of the Naoki Award-winning novel of
    the same name written by Morimi Tomihiko. This presentation will explain how the
    concept of a parallel world is illustrated utilizing various techniques available in the
    visual medium of anime. I will present the how both the protagonist and the audience
    receives this parallel world, and analyze the protagonist’s identity discovery and his
    developing understanding his relationship with the characters around him.

    It is possible to change the visual representation of text in Japanese manga in many
    ways it is not in English comics. These different visual representations can be divided
    into multiple categories. In this presentation I will be focusing on the categories of font,
    katakana and ateji (the pairing of two different words together through the use of a
    reading gloss). Like yakuwarigo (role language), as defined by Kinsui Satoshi, these
    different categories of visual expression help to identify and define the personality of
    the characters speaking. At times they also work to build the world of the story. Beyond
    this, on a visual level, the structure and appearance of the page and word balloons are
    also changed by the visual representation of the text. It is therefore possible to
    hypothesize that children who read these works at the same time as they are learning
    Japanese are also learning a multitude of expressive nuances afforded to them by the
    language.

    if this strikes you as a subsidy on japanophilia... yeah, I mean, that's the point of throwing money at soft diplomacy, innit.
