I wanted to write my diploma work on ancient Aztec stone tablets. Strangely my promoter didn't agree. You think Shicchan would have such an idea?

If I remember rightly it has been said before that the school has classes geared for deaf students just as Lilly is in a class for visually impaired kids. Shizune for her own reasons chooses not to be in that class. Though I could be mixing things up as senile old geezers like myself are wont to do. :mrgreen:

How can she use a notebook if she's deaf?



...sorry, but it was called for. On topic, I think she'd do well with an iPhone.
This one needs to lurk moar. This one lurks too much! Ahh, this one lurks juuuuust enuf.

I guess that would explain why she's always having Hisao pay for things.

Also, what if she does have a cell phone, she just doesn't like to use it unless she has to? Problem solved. It would also make sense because she wouldn't be able to hear it ring, and the fact that the Yamaku uniforms don't seem to have any pockets suggests a vibrate function wouldn't do much good either. (Personally, I miss half of my phone's vibrations even when it is in my pocket. :roll: ) She'd probably find a pen and paper a lot less annoying in that sense.

I just imagined Lilly or Rin trying to use an iPhone and lol'ed. I'm a terrible person.

I'm a feminist. 8) (Yes, a male feminist. It still counts....) I'm also in a situation where I'm perpetually more broke than my girlfriend, so yeah.

Anyway, I agree on principle, especially when you're first getting to know a girl. Misha paying is probably just the result of her being Shizune's butt monkey.

Folks do that everywhere; running their mouths without their brain being in gear, I mean. The older I get the more stupid stuff I find coming out of my mouth and making me look foolish. I just blame it on early senility ... and no one disagrees... the rat bastards. :oops:

Mebbe because officers are old and old people don't understand new technology? :) Or it could be just in case equipment fails (EMP attack o teh noez)

I dunno, I see Shizune with a cellphone with a keyboard instead of an iPhone. It's much easier to text with buttons than a screen, I've had my iPhone for 4 months and I best I could text faster on my keypad on my old phone just picking it up for the first time in this long time. Though, she may have one for some strategy games on there...

Umm, I think it was intentional. I've seen that joke on the forums and Shimmie. It's supposed to have people correct the statement, by pointing out the obvious, or at the very least make people think about it themselves for a moment. It's like a tame form of trolling.
It's a good thing Shizune is deaf, she is the only one who can stand (not) hearing "Wahaha~!" over and over.

Yes she fucking owns one. Every character in the game owns a cellphone. Shizune just uses the notepad rather than the cell for face to face communication. Why is there two pages argumentation about this?

I believe your last blog post touched on this. KS fans are a dangerous combination of slightly insane and extremely bored. :roll:

I bet a cell phone would be more useful at certain times, like at night when it's too dark to see words.

Did you just imply she needs to hear to write on a piece of paper? How do Shizune school?
