    She's saying she didn't want a servant, but she won't defy her mother's insistence.

    Anyway, women saying one thing and meaning another is universal isn't it? :p I enjoyed the story despite knowing almost nothing about Japanese fiction.

    You know how a TARDIS is bigger on the inside? That was invented by a Time Lord who saw how 1 toddler can take up an entire queen size bed.

    Someone pointed out a couple of days ago... when the Mayan calender was created, it didn't account for leap years. So technically the world should have ended about 7 months ago

    I totally invented this joke on Twitter by the way. Or I stole it from someone else and forgot. One of the two. Long story short, the joke was stolen by somebody from somebody.

    So what's the next "world's gonna end" date to look forward to?

    TBH I did feel a little apprehensive on 21/12 even while telling myself that those feelings were entirely stupid. Must be all the survivalist novels I've been reading lately!! haha.

    Well that's Nostradamus and the Mayans accounted for now... not sure if there where any other widely publicised doomsday dates

    There are hundreds of widely publicised doomsday dates. It's just that nobody ever remembers them after they don't happen. In fact, the next one is in May, as predicted by Ronald Weinland and his Church of God Preparing for the Kingdom of God. This guy predicted that the world would end in 2008 and then when that didn't happen, 2012. It was a very big thing back in May, there were lots of jokes and stuff, some people took it seriously, it was all over the media, very much like the Mayan thing. But now nobody remembers. Anyway, Mr Weinland, after Jesus didn't turn up a second time, announced that the end of the world had in fact started, but it would take a full year for it to happen, and Jesus wouldn't make his entrance until May 2013. Mr Weinland's church still has many followers.

    In fact in my lifetime alone there have been well over 50 widely publicised - and believed - doomsday predictions. There seems to be something in the human brain that's prone to panic at the sky falling, but quickly purge the event from memory as soon as the threat doesn't come through. We all do it, me included. It's weird. Also tragic, since there is a lot of fear, scams, people lose their property, people even die needlessly.

    You're kidding, that sort of thing just doesn't happen on the internet.

    Nostradamus is so ambiguous you can recycle his predictions every few decades. He's somehow very accurate at predicting the past.

    I watched a doco on Nostradamus once that basically explained that ALL of his "correct" predictions are writing intentionally ambiguous enough that you could pinpoint several different times in history that it could be used. ie, people who say he predicted Hitler. That same prediction could have been used to predict Stalin or the Japanese in WW2

    It's easy to read something after the event and go "oh yeah... that's sorta like what happened here"
