Too much manga...

#1 Post by PyTom » Tue Sep 20, 2005 10:08 pm

You know you have too much manga when...

... you look up the building code to figure out how much the floor loading per square foot is, then perform experiments to determine how much a volume of manga weighs, extrapolated out to the size of your collection one year from now, in order to ensure that you can sanely store the collection without causing structural damage to the building.

True story... but I should note that manga is pretty light (< 1lb per volume), and bedrooms are rated at 30lb/sqft, so it's unlikely to be a major issue.

The next thing to do is to figure out how to sanely display the capsule toys I have. (Damn lousy engineering on the To Heart 2 set... but kudos to the designers of the Ai Yori Aoshi set.)

.. hmmm, about wasting time...

Incidentally I sort of had nothing to do for an hour today, being stuck - and made some innuendos and such... can you guess all the titles that are being referred to? :wink:

Just for fun.

lol Fun stuff, mikey. I didn't get all of them, though, but hilarious non-the-less. =)

Hm... Unless my mind does deceive me, I think mikey provided another teaser to his next game in The Rag. :shock:

Your mind is deceiving you! But it would actually have been a good idea now that I think about it.

I even forgot to add one of my released games ^_^.

Well yes, it's kind of an open secret. The beta should arrive tomorrow, but it's nothing definite. But I actually have plenty of time, for this year I planned 4 games and since 3 are done, I can relax until December 31st 8) And should things get clogged up with this one, I'll just release the Misato game. See? mikey can't lose! 8)

What is this l33t forums game?
I recognize the rest, but that's one I've never heard of. (And my google-fu has failed me. Even when combined with my machine empathy mutant power.)

You know you get way too many manga, when you:
1. Complain of the dullness of life compared to the one in manga.
2. Become way too picky when choosing a partner.
3. Try to relate life with manga, instead of vice versa.
4. Have a split personality who lives in a fantasy world.
5. Start drawing something like this at daily basic.
