Kyon: Big Damn Hero:
Re. Friendly Tickle Torture.
Re. Yuki's Affectionate Gesture to the Head.
Random thoughts. Do you think Miyuki is keeping tabs on the situation in Nishinomiya? Considering how dedicated she is to her work, I think it's a very likely possibility even if it probably goes against her father idea of a vacation for her. Assuming this is possible in spite of the crappy cellphone reception in Hinamizawa (maybe she borrowed an computer uplink or satellite phone from work), how do you think Miyuki would react if she is informed of the Kowa-Keigo's involvement in a Car Chase on Saturday while knowing for a fact that such a thing is impossible because Kyon is right there with her in Hinamizawa? IMO the answer to that question will depend on how strong Miyuki's Weirdness Censor is:
- Agent Scully route: She will focus on how Kyon supposedly pulled off such a stunt, probably considering Mistaken Identity, Body Double, Twin Switch, etc.
- Agent Mulder route. She will suspect that something "strange" is going on, which will make easier for her to connect the dots and discover about supernatural in the near future.
I better stop here, I'm too sleepy for coherent thoughts. See you later.

Re. Timeline. IINM, the whole set of events in Re-2 happened on "Fri Jun 17". I personally never noticed a date change and Kyon mentioned that they technically only travelled through space. Another hint of this are Mion's words to Sasaki about missing classes on Saturday. P.S. Ninja'd! P.P.S. BTW, some time ago I created two easy-to-remember URL for the timeline: tiny.cc/kbdh-timeline and tinyurl.com/kbdh-timeline.
Re. The Dreaded/Terror Hero. I'm not sure if Kyon qualifies as a Terror Hero because he doesn't seem to intentionally resort to scare tactics as a general approach to deal with his enemies. IOW, it's not his intention to be feared by the Sumiyoshi-rengo, just the result. Then again, as Mad Kitsu pointed out, Kyon can be pretty damn scary when provoked enough. /hesitant
@Zakun: Hi there! IINM, it's the first time I see you here.
Random thoughts. Do you think Skynet would get a good phone reception in Hinamizawa? For some reason, I got the impression that it could have an amazing coverage if Achakura is capable to optimize the connection with public networks (or simply by breaking into the JSAT network or something like that). I wonder if Achakura could become the best Playful Hacker/Voice with an Internet Connection ever thanks to the limitations imposed on her. I mean, without access to data manipulation Achakura can't do much more than administrate Kyon's tools, but when said equipment includes a terminal with some undefined connection to Internet, some interesting possibilities arise. I'm guessing that her nature as a data entity could make many computational problems a non-issue to her (like the ones typically associated to cryptanalysis), or at least it would grant her with non-obvious means to approach them.
