Claire Stanfield, obviously. While at the end of the show you may think of him as the good guy... Don't forget that he may seem that way only because he is strong enough to be so. And when he kills... well, the things he does to people clearly show that there's absolutely no empathy of any kind there. Which is quite scary - because one minute he may be eating pasta and talking about love and next minute he may be ripping someone's limbs off. Quite literally.
what would you do with it?
I would throw it away. Useless crap that note is.
Now... my emotional choice would have been Lio here, just because I considered him to be entertaining. However, Makishima is my vote for this batch. In the world controlled by a system, his own perception of things and actions puts him above the rest.
No competition here. Gendo is the top pick. And I really absolutely hate the bastard, like I hate every Eva character, really.
I simply proposed the one viable solution.
No you didn't. You talk about it like it's a viable solution. But it isn't now. See, you can't go to space now. But the planet, in theory, can do all that other stuff you frown upon. So, let's see here... to pick between something that can be done, but won't help, or something that is impossible?... Tough pick. By any chance, do you have a viable working plan of going into space which you may oh so gracefully propose?
At what point did I ever say "giant arc ship?"
That I picked as the most simple 'escape the planet' plan out there. But please, feel free to share your version of how it can be done.
which can easily lead the way to a Mass Driver for space
Links please. And please, let it be the proper links with talks of costs and proper development times. No linking Mass Effect wiki btw.
military tech leads to more tech for the species as a whole
I kinda wanted to point this out 'cause this is totally irrelevant to this topic and even to the topic of the first thread.
Once again your trying to portray me as an idiot
You do all the work for me, you know...
I actually am all for Solar Energy as that has much potential and I think Wind Energy is also beneficial because I live in Britain
I will always, fucking ALWAYS advocate the Space industry over everything else whether it be Hippie Green bullshit
...spewing inconsistencies like that.
I weep for our fucking species that people oppose Space development which yields so much potential and I hope that somewhere down the line in the future if such "Anime world" were to be the likes of such people would be left on the Earth to rot and die.
And now it's my turn to say that I am not even against the space programs. I am just being realistic about their use at this point of time. And while the idea of leaving others behind to rot sounds nice and may help you sleep better in this world that seems to be so harsh on you... chances are, you won't be alive to ever see that option becoming available.
That, or you won't have the money, sucker.
5 places lest, it seems. 2.5 people can yet participate.

Though, Deft, you are still out of luck, cause you are none of that anyways.
@Gwynn well, I don't really put much faith in polls, you know. Too easy to fuck up. But this made me laugh. Also, I had an interesting thought. At first I though that knowing exact location would be like a direct correlation with wanting to fight Russians there or not. I mean, sure, Ukraine is close to Russia, Russians are probably strong there, so let's not fight them there - that's what I imagined.
But then I figured, it can be the other thing. Knowing where Ukraine is can be a sign of educated person, and educated person would know that military intervention is far from the best thing to do in any situation. Likewise, people who cared enough to find out where we are after this fuckery started, they could also take time to really find out about things, so their choice against fighting could just as well be a reasonable choice based on them following the current situation...
Well, anyways, I didn't really put that much thought into it, but it was interesting idea to play around with. I still would say that polls are unreliable.
(Also, when I tell people on chat where I am, I always tell them to find it on the map )))
Now to @hellstorm901, because what you write is pretty much some sort of retard now.
First of all. Are you actually SERIOUSLY saying 'the world is fucked, let's go to space'? Because that's already the part where I tell you to get your head out of your ass and stop living in anime world. Maybe you didn't notice, but at this stage we can't even manage the 'let's leave the Earth on a giant arc ship' scenario, I am not even talking about any sophisticated ones. But you went even further...
I will always, fucking ALWAYS advocate the Space industry over everything else whether it be Hippie Green bullshit or Religion because only the Space industry and pursuits there yields results
So, as an alternative to any working energy source, you propose space industry, which at this point is decades away from getting ANY solution to any of human problems. And that non-solution, which is, by the way, not even proper industry, you put against... tree-hugging, which is a culture and not an industry and... religion, which is a form of organized belief and not an industry.
Um... I have to ask you seriously. Are you fucking dumb?
"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind"
"An eye for an eye is not a call for revenge, it is an argument for fairness. In the time of the Bible, it was standard to take a life in exchange for an eye. But the Bible said no, the punishment should fit the crime. Only eye for an eye, nothing more. It is not vindictive, it is mitigatory." - (c) George Carlin
Congratulations, you fail on three counts in one post.
Hmmm... I see some merit in this. Also there is at least some style in some of the offered participants. So, I'll join with Baccano/Bebop set:
Obvious, really. He may act nice towards people, but when he wants to kill you... Well, even if you are immortal, you better run away, because he will very playfully put you through hell.
Soldier, who lost all connection to reality. Now he just wants to knock on the heaven's door... Oh, and that includes killing a damn lot of people. Very blues-style villain, perfect for BeBop setting.
I hope the initial battles will be a random mix so my two choices wouldn't have to go against each other first.
@Xyopq well, that's why I am here.
@Taro_Tanako go eat your heart out! Gossip hack is what you tell your girlfriend when trying to fuck her!
Also, no. Back in the days of first issues of CL News, I tried doing interviews. But it takes time to set up and usually nets less info than asking around or just coming up to them and asking directly without any preparation. Plus most fuckers just lie about stuff trying to look more presentable.
Anyways, added another small news article.
