Okay, here we go. I stumbled across a picture of a cute cockroach girl awhile ago, clearly from some manga or doujin, and recently got curious enough to look her up with a reverse Google image search. I won't risk getting any manga sites
or you tube videos in trouble by posting links, but here's the wikipedia article about her: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gokicha

Her name's Gokicha, her mangaka is Rui Tamachi. There's two doujin issues and 49 chapters translated into English available at the manga sites, and two eight minute flash anime episodes on youtube. The two doujin issues, labeled "chapter 1.7 and 1.8" at the place I read them, cover the anime stories. If you watch the second episode, it looks like Gokicha came to a bad end, but chapter 1.8 has the rest of this story.

There's very little continuity. Each (usually 8 page) chapter is a story unto itself.

Essentially, Gokicha the laudable cockroach is very like Casper the friendly ghost (in the earlier comics). All Gokicha wants to do is make friends with humans, who universally react to her as a disgusting cockroach. Whatever she tries to do gets misunderstood and misinterpreted. She gets sprayed with bug spray and runs away in tears. She gets stepped on, thrown into a garbage can, and finds something good to eat.

She has a friend, or maybe frienemy, named Chaba, another cockroach girl, who's kind of a parallel to Spooky. Chaba likes to cause trouble and get chased. Gokicha also eventually befriends a calico cat named Chocolat.

These cockroach girls are adorable. Their facial expressions are cute, and the two anime shorts, while very crudely animated, have good art and are quite hilarious.

Molly Blue pencil 305A
Drawn September 24, 2010. After several attempts to escape, one of which was shown on page 278, both John and Earlene were exhausted. How do you sleep and still guard someone with the escape abilities of Houdini? Sleep on top of him, maybe? For whatever reason, this development vastly improved my ability to draw Earlene. Her appearance becomes consistent. At this point she graduates from being a background character to being a major character, which she will continue being until the story leaves Kauiki Island.

The American electorate appears to have far more white supremacists, racists and idiots than I thought, and our current alleged president is the result. You'd think this would give Putin some pause about supporting people like this, but he seems to be trying the same thing in France. It doesn't look like it's working.

World War 3? With whom exactly? Russia and China both seem more or less okay with Trump, once they learned how little he knows about anything, and how easily he can be manipulated to see stuff their way. As for North Korea, my guess is Kim Jong Un is getting giggle fits when no one is watching, but who knows?

I do think it's time to consider a constitutional amendment about qualifications to run for president. I suggest you must first be one of the following:

1. Any state governor
2. Any U.S. Senator
3. U.S. Member of the House who has either served at least 10 years or been in the House leadership.
4. Four Star General or Admiral in charge of a large military force

This would cover every previous president, and probably ensure that we elect an individual who knows what he or she is doing. Although I admit Sarah Palin is a counterexample

It was proposed, during Nixon's mis-rule, that the office of president be abolished and that the cabinet and the supreme court solons be either elected by popular vote, or by the senate & house of represenatives. They should serve 4-year terms.

I don't remember that. But electing cabinet officers, or some of them at least, is the norm in state governments and could work.

Congress really is a problem though. I think open primaries and un-gerrymandering all the house districts could help minimize the number of stubborn extremists elected.

I think supreme court justices should serve for life, but should require a 2/3 senate majority for confirmation.

I don't really think we could do very well without a president. But we need better screening for the candidates. Screening out Trumps wouldn't be too hard. I'm not sure how to screen out a Nixon.

63509 profile pageviews today. That's 500 in 17 days. The previous 500 took 46 days. That's a pretty random pace. Are there more people around as spring approaches?

Don't get the idea I'm seriously hung up on racking up views. I'm just curious, that's all, and tired of this comment thread only getting filled with anything on my birthday.
