Curt Shilling Made a Deal with the Devil to Break the Red Sox Curse

For those unaware Curt Schilling was an ace pitcher brought onto the Red Sox, and that in doing so despite major injuries was critical in breaking the curse of the Bambino, giving the Red Sox their first win in 86 years.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Gundam Wing and Why I’ve Always Hated Anime Fans

I’ve mentioned this story to some friends of mine, and listeners of older Nerdfit podcasts, but it bears repeating here. It is the story of how I came to be introduced to Gundam, and it bears this kernel of truth. That despite hanging out with friends who enjoy anime, and my convention goings – at the end of the day I have always hated the anime fandom.

The Secret Behind Chest High Walls, and the Anti-AI Cabal

I’m not sure if this is something others feel, but despite the massive updates to video game performance and quality – is it just me or has AI gotten stupidier?

Cards Against Humanity is Literally Willing to Sell Out the Human Race

To say Cards Against Humanity is the fastest growing card game in recent years is to liken it to the trend of unarmed black shootings. In that there’s a lot of press, it’s certainly true, it’s a grim subject, and old white people don’t get it. The difference though is that the CaH team isn’t talking about how #blacklivesmatter but in truth feels that no lives matter. Well human lives that is.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Military and Does Japan Love or Disrespect the Armed Forces?

So with the constant release of things like KanColle, and it’s predecessor Strike Witches it’s clear that Japan understands that even though it may not make much sense, a woman in military uniform has an attractiveness (to Japan’s loli lovers) mixed with wanted to have your ass kicked – a perfect recipe for your otakus. However for a country that has been restricted from having a full military, it’s insane how much it has affected the genre of anime.
