	Well it is important to diferenciate between the myriad of possible
meanings for "This Sucks!" ^_^

	OK.  That being the case then I have to go yet another route, and
say that none of the above are suitable in, and of, themselves.  At this
point I need to add emotion into the mix.  As a former Thespian (actor), I
would like to take the character that *I* know as Asuka and put her in this
situation and define what I feel the character would say ( this is to say
that this is based purely on how I interpret the character of Asuka)...
	nope, that aint quite it ^_^ (although she may have thought that
	<choke, choke> ... I ... <choke, gag> ... hate ... this ... <faint
or attack Shinji, I haven't seen EOE and don't know what she does>

	There.  That makes a lot more sense to me.  I think that this way
you can understand that there are many things she could be saying this
about.  You also have the stronger emotion of Hate as opposed to the more
whimsical Sucks...  My $0.02...
