They believe what one group of ancient desert dwellers wrote, but believing this other group - that's just crazy! Much of the apocrypha is not considered 'not to be believed' in mainstream Christianity. And actually different denominations do include different sections of the apocrypha within their...

Re: Long haired cute geek boys wanted!

Unfortunately with my job having long hair is extremely inconvenient (and slightly hazardous) which sadly means I can no longer afford to keep my hair as long as I'd like. As it stands right now my hair is around the far too long point, but I'm too damn lazy to get a haircut.

I don't have to worry about that fortunately. My aunt does all my haircuts for me so, all the small talk I get at the hairdresser is just talk between family members.

I haven't been able to listen to a dub over for years. I just find that I feel a lot more emotion from the original voice over work than the English voice actors can. Plus if the Japanese VA are horrible I can't really tell since I don't know the subtleties of the language.
