Anime - Japanese Animation
Baka - Japanese word for idiot or fool
Loosely put an Anime Baka is someone who's crazy about Anime. However interpretation's may vary. I tend to think of Anime Baka as meaning something like drooling fan boy/girl.
Wrote this a long time ago. Too short for an article:
Perverted - Hentai in Japanese. But the word pervert means deviation from normal or accepted. So, how can all guys be perverts?
Did you ever notice that the sex scene in the movie is generally at about the same realative place as the guitar solo in a song?
Gas Systems and Gun Notes
Rob's Lutzow - Sister ship to Graff Spee
The small firing buttons that look like electric push buttons are actually high pressure pneumatic switches SMAV-3. The quick disconnects are made by a Omega. I like to use these for quick gun removal that does not require cutting airline. I use the Delrin Acetal versions. They are available in either pass-through or shutoff configuration. FT-SMC-01 is a simple coupling that does not have a shutoff valve, and is useful for the actuator end of the gun. FT-SMCD-01 is the shutoff valve coupling that enables you to disconnect the accumulator side of the gun, and still have pressure to the rest of the system. It's useful for temporarily taking a leaking or malfunctioning gun out of the system while at the pond.

These guys are close to Ben's house and stock various components. They are listed as a distributer for Clippard. I just ordered two spools of Polyurethane Hose from them as well as ten quick connectors. They stock their own brand of Hose that has the same properties as Clippard (they can get Clippard, but there is a shipping delay). They stock all the same colors.
