>> Shinji kung-fu fightin' some MIBs
If you mean the acronym, it's Men in Black. Wasn't really referring to
the alien-fighting movie types, just government "suits" in general.
>You're saying that somebody actually wrote some of these??!
Yes, and I'm not telling. Tha's part of the fun. ^_^

Of course, but to put it simply, well, most of the Eva cast is !@$^&U and
locked in on a course for self-destruction. We are talking about serious
childhood trauma and virtually destroyed psyches here. It would take
nothing short of an act of "God" to pull off making some of that crap
believable. I've done more than my fair share of research into this,
>do not mind of giving believable strong motivations to the character
>to change personality.
I've just always guessed that for the most part they simply lacked any
form of perceptive ability.
>And, anyway, when I said that some people find it hard to accept

Basic rule: Extremes can make for better points on certain occasions.

Well, that's basically me popping up with that evidence, but yes, that
would seem to be the case, wouldn't it? Such an interesting unit...
>Uh, when you say 'never' you really mean it, I suppose?
>Too sad. Too bad. ;_;
Yeah, besides it amuses me far too much to know something so big and yet
tell no one. (The only person I ever explained it to was my sister, who
then told me I spent too much time thinking about these things... ah
