Alt.Fan.DragonBall little mirror

This is a small mirror for Alt.Fan.DragonBall, a usenet newsgroup. I began reading it a few time ago, and I copy here the posts I found interesting, fun or informative.

You can find lots of thing on this newsgroup, trolls, and also episodes summary (or more complete episode descriptions...) of Dragon Ball!

I translated some posts in french. See here

Well, Krillin *did* once chop off one end of a rope bridge while Goku was
going across it, but that's about as close to "killing" as it gets for him.

Boy, just thinking about it now, a lot of Goku's friends have tried to kill
him at some point!

- Bulma (shooting him in the head with a pistol immediately after hitting
him with her car)
- Yamcha & Pu'ar (Pu'ar was all for his death as Yamcha tried to chop him up
in the desert with his sword)
- Tenshinhan and Chaozu (Tenshinhan vowing to kill him [though it was short
lived], and Chaozu paralyzing him to help Ten do so)
- Piccolo (do I really need to give an example?)
- Vegeta (ditto)

Heh, if Goku ever found himself in a room with all of these friends, I can
imagine a possible nervous look on his face, if he were to recall these
memories all at once.

Subject : DBZ females' power levels when menstruating?
Well, you *were* complaining that the group was dead - and this topic
has always generated healthy debate when raised in the past... ;)

Considering that in DBZ, anger seems to cause a temporary increase in
a fighter's power level (e.g. Gohan vs. Raditz), do you think that the
power levels of the female fighters - Videl for example, increase
(even if it's only a small boost) at certain times during their
menstrual cycle due to their fluctuating hormones causing them to
become short-tempered and aggressive?

I have deliberately used Videl as an example to avoid the "does
Juuhachigou have a menstrual cycle?" debate...
