The magic's gone since they started seriously dumbing down the game at the end of TBC.... Have only done a trial period or two since then, totally unimpressed. Final Fantasy XIV is it now, unless that goes in a direction that is clearly upsetting to me. I am pretty damn nostalgic for old WoW memories, though. You can never go back.

fat soluble chemicals never actually leave (like LSD), they just get stored away in the alrd region

This is wrong. Lysergic acid diethylamide is broken down by monoamineoxidase. This is just like the myth of LSD being stored in your spinal fluid and causing flashbacks or the one of THC being stored in your fat and getting you high when you exercise -- completely baseless.

The cynic in me says, yes, of course these are official exercises. These are official exercises to see how quickly the public can react to martial law being enacted, not exercises to determine if people can perform helicopter dogfights well.

Helicopters are really air-to-ground attack platforms. Air-to-air-defense would be nominally supplied by fighter jets. The harsh reality of cognitive dissonance says most people will blindly believe whatever makes them feel the most secure.

I just spent a week in the Tokyo area and a week in Kansai (the South) and don't agree. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial alone is enough to see that Japan only suffers America's fascist tendrils quite begrudgingly. Most people in the Tokyo region seem to have a general disdain for American foreigners. Osaka embraces American culture but still feels far more Japanese than it does American.

Always draw your curves, then plot your reading.
