Re: Matter and Vacuums
Your diagram isn't exactly how air compressors work, actually. An air compressor consists of a tank with a piston inside. The piston compresses the air, creating a vacuum above it. The vacuum is filled with new air through a valve. Then the piston moves up again, compressing the air above it, closing the valve and forcing the now-compressed air into the area below the piston through other valves. Then the whole process is repeated until enough air has been compressed.
So at no point in time is a vacuum created which magically sucks in air until it is of higher pressure than the surrounding area. Also, a vacuum is, by definition, absence of matter. You can put a piece of solid matter into the vacuum, but then the vacuum would just get smaller. The part with the matter would no longer be a vacuum. Space is a vacuum, Earth isn't. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 11:47, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
- Personally, I always saw the Hakke Kūshō as working similar to how a pistol shrimp attacks. The pistol shrimp creates a sonic blast which forms a near-vacuum bubble that is shot at the shrimp's victim, stunning or even killing it. These bubbles can have speeds of up to 100 km/h and the sound they make can reach over 200 dB, making the shrimp one of the loudest animals in the sea, together with sperm whales and the like. When the bubbles collapse, they generate temperatures of almost 5000°C, similar to the surface of the Sun. Which makes me wonder why people think Amaterasu's temperature is ridiculously impossible... —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 23:39, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
Talk page commenting
When commenting on talk pages, it's good practice to make the comments at the bottom of the section it pertains to, since it keeps things ordered chronologically. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:25, June 6, 2011 (UTC)
- Precisely. You can simple direct at that person either by addressing them by username, simple as that. For example, you replied to ShounenSuki's comment, instead of putting your reply directly under his, add it at the bottom of that section, and direct it at him. You can even be more specific, adding something about which of his comments you're replying to. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:52, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
Still related to posting in talk pages, it's also good sense to see if what you're going to add is relevant to the discussion. I see that in the Tailed Beasts' and Heavenly Spin's talk pages, you replied to some discussions which were months, and sometimes years old. It's not that you shouldn't reply to those, but if you do, you should do it with good reason. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:06, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
Re: Hinata's game(Naruto Accel) ougi
I would translate the name of this technique as 'Eight Trigrams Palms Empty Heavens' (八卦掌空天). I don't think it was necessarily named after 'kūten' (空転, racing/idling [an engine]), as that generally has a negative connotation in Japanese, referring to doing something without getting any results. It does refer to spinning, though. I think Hakkeshō Kūten is mostly a play on the name Hakkeshō Kaiten, both being similar techniques. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 18:59, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
Re: Naruto's relationships
Not really our job to point out that Sai was wrong. Unless they outright say "I thought this was X, but it was actually Y", pointing out what a character said or thought in comparison to something gives room for words that come across as bias, and only invites shippers to edit the page, turning it into a battlefield. Even if Sai was wrong, we just say "Sai said/thought/figured X". If anything, using the right verb clearly shows that is his opinion rather than a fact.
