    Interesting. It's always nice to see fans coming togethor and further taking their passion to try and really make something with it.
    I wonder if they'll extend their membership to other countries.
    Although...

    "Ok, next item on the agenda-"
    "I wanna make a Buster Rifle!"
    "Will the American division please keep their members in check. Thank you".

    "You made them a Buster Rifle?!"
    "Nah"
    "Oh...then what do they have?"
    "A Super Soaker with some Christmas lights wrapped around the muzzle"
    "Clever"
    "Thank you"

    The possibility of Gundam robots isn't quite what they're going for here:

    To me, this is the best thing ever. These are my people. Alas, they're an ocean and a language away. I hope this is just the beginning of such study. Maybe some of their future work will be translated and published in journals. Worst-case scenario, I guess I learn to read Japanese.

    ...I smell a Gundam cult! Proof that our future is filled with giant robots and 'earth federations'.
    I can already picture how it'll look. Their Gundam-speech turns my mind into pudding.

    Fascism...I take it then they aren't accepting the "Stupid gaijin! Gundam is for the Japanese!" fanbase?

    Fortunately not apparently, otherwise it wouldn't be much of an "international Gundam society."

    Heck, let's face it, on some level we all know what Zeon is a caricature of.

    Nice. This is something if done properly on an international scale would be a rather big hit to Gundam aficionados everywhere.

    Hopefully they expand into the Alternate Universes as time goes on, I've already got a nice topic idea that came up just a few minutes ago about the Limits of Genetic Enhancement (How far can it go and what limits it may hold) in regards to the Cosmic Era (which now that I think about was really swept under the rug as time goes on).

    I wonder what the application process for the think tank is.

    "One one wall, a picture of an Acguy. On the other a naked woman. Which do you choose?"
    *HC potters over to the Acguy*
    "Welcome aboard, sir. We look forward to discussing these weighty issues with you"

    Gah...the delicious discussion these people will have...Not fair!

    I propose a third wall is constructed in which the naked women is within the cock-pit of the Acguy.

    I wonder if they'd include AU concepts at a later date. That could broaden things, like CE's issue of genetic engineering.

    "Guys, I'm getting a headache from all this heavy discussion. I'm gonna go chill in the G Gundam discussion for a while".

    And then the discussion turns to STDs.

    They'll have to compete with the Star Trek people for funding but in the end I think the Warhammer 40k blokes will win out in in the battle for funding.

    *flattens HC's androgynous face with a kayak paddle and points a few posts above* Hey if you're stealing ideas do it more subtly you.

    I sense A Clockwork Orange's reprogramming being intercut with a discussion on Articficial Newtypes.

    I honestly didn't see your post. I was just trying to get things back on track, since it was turning into 'lol, what Gundam would you have?'
