    It stands alone so far. The problem I have with animation of all sorts is the lack of unique style. Disney and Pixar are locked in to a set. Most serial anime too. I won't be able to catch the references though, but it's fun so far on its own. How many seasons are there?

    I just tested One Punch. Only two episodes on Netflix watched so far. I don't get how he got to be one punch. All he did was train till he went bald. Is that a Buddhist influence? Anyway. I like that all the towns are letters. The animation is really good, and the characters are funny but I don't like the way everyone talks their thought processes out immediately after a run in, but that's Japanese drama for you. The monsters are well drawn and funny stupid. The scene where the evil scientist brother told his now mutant giant brother to kill the guy on his shoulder that was One Punch, but the giant didn't know he was there a and killed the brother? Hilarious.

    Random Islamic Questions

    No worries Haku, my prime survival strategy for masjid is bumbling white guy who doesn't interrupt. Whenever I say anything I plant a quizzical look on my face and say it in the form of a question. The masjid is full of frustrated lecturers who stand way too close for my comfort. The Moroccan man is actually a friend who got me a thobe and wool hat so we can go around like twins. No lie. Breeze- I don't know what to say. The imagining of a woman trying to bow and plant her backside seems awkward and painful? If it makes you feel better I creak like a wooden gate in the wind when I pray. Loud enough to get quick glances. Forget about sitting my haunches on my heels with my toes pointing front. Easier to bend a rail spike. Lol

    Random Islamic Questions

    There are many processes that create alcohol, as I'm sure you know. Vinegar being one. I think I read that it has to be less than or equal to 0.05% or 0.1 proof at the time of ingestion. So I have a question. I got several lectures and was treated as if I were in the verge of heresy the other day for saying I didn't see anything wrong with female imams. Isn't there historical precedent? And is it not allowed? And what is the deal with a woman's butt that makes prayer impossible? ( That last was the argument of a very emphatic Moroccan man

    Random Islamic Questions

    I believe so. It was a source of abrogation in the Quran and there are third party sources that talked about wine being drunk by almost everyone in the area where the old prophets lived such as Roman and Egyptian accounts. I think the wine was safer than water in many areas but that may be just my European roots showing

    Fat vs carb

    Doing well. I've lost seventeen pounds and kept it off, exercising, not smoking so much and keeping my meds on track. I think the difference with this study is the number of people sampled and the time frame. Both quite large and involved. Most studies use much smaller samples.

    Fat vs carb

    I'm writing this in response to a new report on a study that was very comprehensive. Dealing with fats. It turns out, everything I've ever thought about dieting, weight loss, health nutrition was flawed fundamentally. Though there is a relationship between fats and blood cholesterol levels, ( cholesterol is, of course, a form of fat) plaque depositing is influenced far more by carbohydrate intake, smoking, exercise and family history. So much so that people on low fat diets have a shorter life span than people with high fat diets. People with high carb life styles, especially refined sugar intake- think soda, snack cakes ,processed foods and such had the highest death rates. Haku made this point to me months ago, but I was too entrenched to listen. He has the name of the study and the math breakdown if desired. Crazy right? I ate beef and felt great.
  15. You're job is highly valuable to the community you serve. Right? You take people to doctors appointments and jobs to support families and all sorts of things. It involves travel. You can pray while driving without the physical form of prayer. Allah is always merciful and makes things easy. We make it hard. As I can attest.
