    i have a good amount of research... i just want opposition research.

    Personally, I prefer theory and reasoning bolstered by empiricism. Just seems like the most logical flow for me when thinking and writing. Its really just a personal preference.

    That is not to say that a priori should be taken only or empiricism should be taken only. A mix of reasoning and empiricism is necessary. I think truth can be gathered from both deductive and inductive methods.

    Ultimately - in my opinion - imperialism overrides reasoning in every case because reasoning does not exist without tangible fact. Why ask if public services are efficient if governing bodies didnt exist? However, in some cases, I think reasoning overrides tangible fact when there is overwhelming evidence supporting the reasoning. The minority evidence can essentially be argued against a priori.

    You said observation. Im not a huge fan of observation because personal anecdotes aren't representative of greater truths. I think their purpose is to help illustrate and provide examples of greater truths. But I think it would be false to base greater truths on personal anecdotes. Its like if i said "taxes are bad" because I pay payroll taxes (which I do) from my paycheck whenever I work, and as a result, I have less money to spend. Well, maybe payroll taxes work fine with other communities and not just my individual case. Etc.

    :)

    sometimes i actually employ bad arguments with my friends on purpose for two reasons:
    -its funny as heck when they can't defeat a bad argument
    -it works on your reasoning skills so you can turn what the other person is saying against them and never actually have to defend your own argument

    -downside: it can be hard and they think you are dumber than you really are

    send me some sources and ill see if i can incorporate them somehow. i dont have all the knowledge in the world, so they would be really beneficial to my own knowledge, but also to the essay.

    basically gimme all the data for your argument and ill try and add it in to look at public ownership objectively. A mix of right and left wing sources are always great. In all of my argumentative essays, I try to use Huff Post or other left wing websites to bolster the essay.

    You mean use circular reasoning? :P Just please dont trap me in contest with your mind.

    i think I've been inspired to write a comprehensive essay on public ownership.

    also must be a special attacker, which Null/Silvally can be. I haven't decided if that pokemon will be on the good or bad side yet because it plays both well. Maybe ill have two like in the games xD

    I think ill google a list of the Alola pokemon. But definitely not any Alolan form pokemon. Ice types, fairy types, and dragon types are considered the pokemon of choice for the elites in the story. Specifically Ninetales lol

    id bet a lot of money on this cause its true. i dont lie unless by mistake. I would send you his profile and college, but that would compromise me if one worked really hard, so nah. Some information is not for the internet.

    but I'm kinda disappointed I didnt see him today. his friend was there, but he wasnt. maybe i missed him or something.

    Not a bad idea to fit the whole war theme actually. Definitely a great choice. Dang, it wasnt what i was thinking, but ill have to add in a Mudstale now. How about something that would be a cool partner pokemon... like a starter (except dont recommend a starter)

    also i gotta go to sleep i have like a 30-45 minute drive again tomorrow (I'm going to a political event that i get to go to for free)

    also i got the phone number of an economist that I've actually talked to quite a bit now (coincidently met him at two different political events that are totally different). So ill wreck you in every debate now kek

    I know Dhelmise isn't conventional at all, but I'm really liking Dhelmise nowadays. But Dhelmise literally makes the character's background way more interesting and also makes you feel bad for the MC. But also it will do cool things because the MC begins the story (not the background) working in a steel mill (ability: Steelworker) and because of Dhelmise's typing, the MC can't be recruited into the military because he doesnt play the supportive role of a grass type, nor does it have the proper typing for a front line wall. And its ghost type doesnt qualify it to be a speedy scout because its base speed is low. So he is put in reserves, but receives training anyways. And thats sort of how the story starts.

    I might make the MC a poet so I can make an excuse to write poems lol

    It will be based in a new region where there is a scarcity of pokemon, but an abundance of Z-Crystals and mega stones relative to the other regions.

    Background: new region is discovered, and adventurers discover the crystals and stones. This results in a mass flood of immigrants looking to get rich quick (similar to the California Gold Rush). After a hundred years or so, these immigrants form two sides- East and West. The West side begins running low on Z-Crystals to sell, but the East hasn't; however, the West has far more efficient mining processes due to the terrain in the West and other resources. As a result, the West has more crystals and mega stones for stronger military power. The West creates deals with the other regions (Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh, etc) promising them cheap crystals and mega stones in return for soldiers (aka trainers with pokemon). So the East side has an extremely uphill battle.

    How war is fought: trench warfare modified to pokemon. Basically soldiers mobilize through the trenches, but also support and cleric pokemon (grass, poison types) reside there. Steel, rock, and ground types form a wall in front of trenches, so the clerics heal them as they fight while the clerics can't be hit. to push trenches, each side uses 1 of 2 strategies (or both at the same time i guess):
    -Rush with grass, water, and ground z-crystals to take out the walls
    -"smoke" the clerics out with poison (gas), fire (smoke), and flying (wind) z-crystals

    Story: The main character (who's backstory is cool imo) is caught in the middle of this war, and of course, is on the East side cause they are automatically the good guys cause they are weaker lol. His ace pokemon, Dhelmise, puts him in a peculiar situation.

    that moment when your team loses the effectiveness of 2 of your walls in the first few turns of battle, has a great pokemon haxed with an ice beam freeze that freezes over twice that would have made the team a huge comeback. When your team is basically down 3 pokemon that did very little in the match and you make a huge misplay cause of a bad prediction

    ... but actually clutch it and win at 5% health because your teams always have great comeback potential

    YES THATS ME BABY

Review Aloo - Hand Shakers

I just finished another recent anime, so have another review. Hand Shakers is an action series that sees pairs of people compelled to fight each other using strange weapons by the voice of God. The catch here, Hand Shaker pairs are heavily reliant on each other in combat to the point that they have to charge their power by holding hands.


Plot
I was instantly intrigued by the quirky premise behind Hand Shakers

Review Aloo - Seiren

I wanted to do a review of one of the most recent season's anime, which basically left me two choices since I've only seen two so far. I have decided to go with Seiren because I don't have much to critique about Kuzu no Honkai and it's boring if I only ever do positive reviews.

Seiren is a romance and comedy series with an unusual format. Rather than dedicate it's full twelve episodes to following one story, it instead rests at the end of each arc

Well I can hardly call this a weekly series anymore, but I think a Music Mince is long overdue. If you don’t know (or remember) what this series is about, I introduce you to ten songs that I’ve been particularly enjoying the past week in the hopes that you’ll enjoy them as much as I do. Time to dig in!
