Ugh. I'm on an archive crawl and just reached this place. I'm cringing inside, because I'm going "damn, I know what's going to happen now and I REALLY don't like it.

(on a completely unrelated note, my PC just wanted to AutoComplete "I really don't like" by adding "myself" at the end. Screw you too you arse.

So, deep diving the archive, just reached the space station arc. I have come to a realization.

There is one thing that would /truly/ make my life complete.

I want... no... I NEED a holopony.

Sometimes I'm very confused by 'traditions' of my country.

While flipping through TV channels I saw that on one channel they're currently sending a "Schützenfest".

I guess I'll need to do a little explaining here. Maybe the only way to get a gun permit here if you don't need it for hunting, or very rarely for your job, is being a member of a "Schützenverein", literally "marksman club". Most, but not all of them, are very traditional clubs, part of the activities in these clubs is taking part in these "Schützenfesten". A "Schützenfest", "marksman festival", is an annual event in these clubs, where the members are marching through town in uniform, accompanied by marching bands. Another part of these events is deciding who the next "Schützenkönig" will be.

All this seems so incredibly anachronistic to me. These images could easily be from 1910. These organisations are mostly patriarchal, many of the more traditional clubs don't allow women to take part in this. Pride of national traditions, especially if they are military, is generally something many Germans dislike. And these people take that so seriously…

In Japanese, a haiku is defined in terms of morae, which are not the same as syllables.

I would share something traditional of my people but the only thing I can remember is that warriors were only allowed to wear jaguar pelts if they went and killed it with their bare hands. I'm ill suited for that particular activity. I suck at crafting turquoise jewlery too.

Assassin Zer0

In Haiku he speaks

Quote
Striking from nowhere / Killing with accuracy / This is who I am.
Quote
Sorry, did that hurt? / That "sorry" was sarcasm / I am not sorry.

Hey, this area / Smells vaguely of butts and death / An unpleasant stench.
