Onii-chan Explains #1: Maintaining Perspective

Well, I said I was going to do this silly series about 800 years ago, so here’s the first episode. Consider it a quick primer on Maintaining Perspective in a world full of prefabricated ideals and open biases. Critical Thinking is a major part of what I’m discussing here, so give it a listen and hopefully it’ll in some way be useful to you.

Also, still looking for people to help grow the site. There’s lots of things that’d be worth doing around this joint, like community building and stuff like that, so if you’d like to be a part of OCnE in some way, be it blogging, helping come up with some fun community ideas, or whatever, please hit the Ask Onii-chan page and shoot me an e-mail so we can begin talking about it. I have some pretty cool ideas for community stuff, and it’d be good to have some folks to back me up. Haha.

Oh and as an aside, I’d especially like to get some female participation for the podcast. A female voice would really add some interesting outlooks to the bullshit I talk about. If you’re a dude, please don’t let my want of lady talkin’ dissuade you.

Interesting facts as usual. Hope to hear more things of that nature form you.

What can I say?

I was against futanari at first, reason being that I didn´t want to see a dick on a girl. It didn´t feel right.

Now I don´t mind.

So I´ve broaden my horizons a lot since I started hanging around certain places. It´s good fun though.

I’m glad that you’re speaking out against the fear mongering that seems to be a favorite pastime – and probably a great source of the RWA spike during recent years (http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/~altemey/) – but I have to slightly disagree with you wis-a-wis what the responsible response to the swine/avian/etc. flue is:It’s not the next coming of the black plague.However it might be something that “echoes” (but thankfully nowhere near as bad as) the Spanish flue.Still: it’s a more dangerous ailment than what’s normally coming your way. I will compare it to a storm: it’s coming, the downpour gona be the worst… Read more »

Regarding the swine flu, it’s not any more deadly than the regularly flu, but it does target a different part of the population. Combined with the regular flu, there will most likely be a marked increased in deaths this flu season. It’s not as bad as some people make it out to be, but it will cause more deaths. As for your piracy argument, you seem to be cherrypicking movies that support your position. Most movies don’t make anything close to Harry Potter and Twilight. There will be lots of movies that lose money to counter the money makers. Also,… Read more »

You’re comparing the number of deaths so far for swine flu during the off-peak season to the yearly amount of flu deaths. Swine flu was declared an epidemic in June. Look at the typical death rates for the flu throughout the year. http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/weeklyarchives2009-2010/images/picurve45.gif June would be about week 20-25. That’s approaching a minimum. We’re approaching week 46. That’s around when the flu season starts. And hey, look, the amount of deaths so far is significantly higher than previous years at this point. It’s not at a “WE’RE ALL DOOMED” level, but it’s still a good amount higher than normal. Around… Read more »
