    Tho, Canary was ten at the time. I don't think she, at that point, was stronger than Kalluto. If we take Kalluto and Leorio as baselines (Leorio being untalented at Nen and not particularly interested at training it), I do not think Kalluto can defeat 100 Leorios coming at her. After all, the...

    Are there hunters without Nen? I mean, i know the secret exam obviously, which makes you a true hunter. But lets look at it from the perspective of someone who took the exam. You got a hunter's license right there. Even if you fail to acquire Nen, what happens? Will some Nenmaster like Wing...

    I think democrats already fought extremely hard for it. The fact that it is still out there means that pelosi, schumer, sanders and biden (and others of course) put insane efforts into keeping it alive. And what biden did so far are not breadcrumbs. I really do not know how it can be called that...

    What republican voters support does not matter here. The GOP didnt. Biden passed more than most of the GOP was comfortable with already, and that is a major victory because it does not exclude the fight for the bigger package. The fact alone that this bigger package is not dead even tho they...

    In a partisan environment with just very thin margins in house and senate, biden pushed through one of the most ambitious policy packages in the latest US history with the covid relief package, was able to find a bipartisan infrastructure deal even with a hostile GOP and has still chances to...

    It is completely clear that Biden did a good job domestically so far. The afghanistan withdrawal was a mess, but it would always have been a mess. It was a larger mess than it needed to be if the Us administration had understood just how fast the Taliban would conquer Afghanistan, but i do not...

    I think there lies the question. What did Alluka actually do? Killau wanted Alluka to 'return gon to normal', but what did alluka do exactly? We know that Alluka does not perfectly replicate wishes. The butler wished to be a billionaire, but Alluka just teleported a plan with money to the...

    What I mean goes beyond investment (and of course, the EU should also be present in these things, but i see the EU more responsible for northern africa and the middle east than south america). I think the US needs to undertake an honest push here to build up trust and soft power in that region...

    The US is looking at an increasing number of refugees at its souther borders. Climate change will worsen that problem. Another thing that worsens the problem is that the US acts hostile to left wing governments in souther america while supporting right wing governments, at least to some extent...

    Still, Gon having Aura does not mean that he can just relearn nen. It is not just a traumatic experience, but a Nen Oath. Gon gave everything away and it is not clear that Alluka changed that. She saved his life, but whether the Nenoath still applies is another matter entirely. If Gon gave...

    The teaching that should be taken from Afghanistan imo can only be that the US has to put effort into stabilizing southern america.

    That's not it. Every living being has aura. If Gon did not have Aura, then he would be dead on the long run. If he could just relearn Nen, i guess Ging would have told him how. After all, Ging reminded him that he 'gave it all away' and should be grateful for what he has. If it was as simple as...

    I do not think so. If Gon could do so, I think he would. But he cannot use Nen at all right now, so no Hatsu can be formed. If it was possible to just rlearn nen, i think ging woulda told hinm

    To me that points to a larger problem beyond biden. US intelligences seem to have ignored information about the Afghan army only existing on paper. That begs the question whether more intelligence is tainted by wishful thinking and how reliable the information that gets relegated to the...

    I think it is clear that some people will feel unduly attacked if you say 'us readers dont care about this' in a general meaning. I think nobody here in this thread wants togashi to overwork himself or risk to get a covid infection.
