  1. I like the Wikipedia one. ^^ The fact that it takes two sneezes to be a bad thing said means that most of the time It'l be good.
  2. I gotta be honest, the way that girl defined yuri vs yoai has been my own loose understanding of the terms. I had done research on the subject a few years back and was not able to find adequate definitions for either the Japanese intonations nor the etymology of the words themselves. I had to take from what was around me and conclude what I could; yuri was girl's love, yoai was boy's. In a situation like that, how am I supposed to know that what I've concluded is wrong, you know?

  3.

  5. I fly from Northern Ohio every year, I save up a bit to go- you have to spend SOME money to stimulate the economy, and nowhere needs it more than Baltimore! lol... I am going!! Edit: Also, if Aramark goes, that WOULD BE FINE with me!! Their food is expensive and low quality. They don't even offer anything Nippon-related there (unless Last year was different, as I wasn't among attendance)... {mbmblll.. keeping vendors from selling pocky....mmblee}
