Certainly - I don't lock my front door because I know burglary is bad and not my fault and that we should be tackling theives, not locking our doors. (insert smiley of choice here, for anyone irony-challenged).

"Each kid has $2.5 million controlled by trustees, who can release money only for education, health care, a home purchase or a business start-up."

Is that all? If I took the mortgage, health care costs, and the fear of college costs out of my budget, I would have worries, and enough money to quit all but one part-time job. To pay for groceries.

But then again, I'm over 40, so I'd get enough to quit all my jobs!

I would think it would be everybody's dream to have a huge amount of money to play with and do anything you could ever want to do with it. Is that so wrong? If you really think about it I believe it would be absolutely fabulous to have that opportunity. Sure, we might misuse the wealth but then again we might actually do wonderful things with it. I, for one, would love to be given the chance to find out.

I thought it was from their habit of milking maple trees. Originally done by hand, they discovered that the finest syrup came only from particularly viscious trees (the better the syrup the more viscious it is) so for safety's sake they learned to milk the trees from out of reach of its limbs.

Knights of Sidonia sounds interesting. My favorite space opera (and perhaps in my all time top 5 anime series) is Crest of the Stars. If Sidonia is even 1/10th as good as CotS, then it's worth a watch.

I've been watching Rail Wars. It's OK, but I find nothing to really write home about. Seems to be a bit slow with no overall conflict to tie everything together.

I loved Girls und Panzer! The models were fantastic. If you haven't heard of it, check out Arpeggio of Blue Steel, which uses WWII submarines in a sci-fi setting. And for more WWII goodness, KanColle is a card-based (WWII) fleet game that is getting an anime sometime next year. I've not played that game, but if it gets licensed in the US, I'm sure I'll watch it.

And to throw some titles into the mix:

Sabagebu is currently airing. Bunch of girls join a high-school survival club, using some nicely modeled Airsoft guns. It's hilarious.

Mitsudomoe is an older series. Can you laugh at potty humor, double ententes, situations taken out of context, with a dose of deliberate perversion? No matter how cute the visuals may may look, this is definitely not for children.

Kobato is also older. Not a comedy, but a supernatural romance. I found the anime so beautiful, I ordered (all 6) of the (translated) manga volumes from Amazon.

That reminds me - in Germany, you flash you hazard lights if you want to signal someone that you'll let them in or yield the right of way. In Italy, on the other hand, flashing your hazard lights at an intersection means "Look out - here I come!" Hilarity ensues when you mix those up.

No, really: Never let your Italian boyfriend drive your car in Germany.
