Given the way GX7 and others like him have left with a special place for you left in their hearts, I would've expected something in the military or education. Or military education. ;)

Besides, I'm not laughing at philosophy all, and I actually think it a) important and b) extremely useful. Obviously not in the strictest sense of utilitarian value, but there are other metrics than that. Humanities' background breeds that sort of thinking. :)
I promise you that you will come to regret your choice when you run into Hegel, and god forbid, Adorno. You will be longing for CE's simplicity by then at the latest. :D

oh, rest assured, once i reached Heidegger in a mere intro class in junior college i already wanted to burn down the entire world in my inconsolable rage

apparently it's actually not sufficient to simply throw the book at the wall and say "WHO CARES WHAT HE THINKS HE WAS A STUPID NAZI ANYWAY"

At least Unicorn comes, twice a year. :cry:

I'll add to that theme!

My first exposure to Gundam came in a used-book store. There, I found a yellowed paperback of Mobile Suit Gundam: Escalation. Read that thing from cover to cover, several times, including Mark Simmons's introduction and all the details on an enormous franchise I knew nothing of (well, except "The Wing Boys Are, Liek, Gay"). So, even now, my base concept of Gundam is based on Tomino's novels.

And I still call that ship the Pegasus, even now. It's just more natural to me.

My second exposure, right after reading that bit of the novel (I wouldn't read the rest 'til years later), was the PlayStation fighting game Battle Assault 2 (pronounced "Battle Assauuu"). So yeah, if you want to know the frame of reference this mod uses for Gundam, imagine Tomino's second novel combined with the aesthetics and action of Battle Assault 2. Then imagine me wondering which of the environments was Texas Colony.

Yeah. Trippy, ain't it?

So... Unicorn, Pegasus, ponies. What's next?

EDIT: Y'know, I can get the other two parts in their original Del Rey paperbacks. I should totally do that... :)

but there's another season of ponies that started today so it's all good and happens a lot more frequently than Unicorn

Moving past the ponies, Shadowcell, might you have a favorite Valkyrie from Macross? Y'now, assuming you've seen Macross...

Do the mods have Gundanium banhammers? And if so, where did you get them? :)
