Re: The native is here. Can I help you?

There's a pdf ebook floating around called Dirty Japanese. I'm not going to link to it directly as it's probably a copyright violation, but it's easy to find with google.

It's a fun way to learn...

Re: The native is here. Can I help you?

The issue is in how the data is presented: pretending that crime committed by foreigners is a legitimate issue in Japan is what I originally objected to. Not only do the numbers show it's total bs,...

Re: Is it possible: somebody yet to break the 4 months of watched anime?

4 months is easy if you have no social life for a few years. I used to marathon whole 1 season shows in a day, every day for quite a while. More when I really had nothing to do. I'd easily be at over...

Re: Bio Fuel is a Sin

Ah, sorry about that. Maize is British for corn.

America can produce corn for cheaper than Mexico, and America had been flooding the global food market with cheap corn for (how long?) until they...

Re: The native is here. Can I help you?

You know, this is exactly the kind of thing I do criticize people for. I made a researched argument, looked up credible sources for it, and then you come and try to counter it with an uneducated...

Re: Bio Fuel is a Sin

I was mostly referring to countries that aren't self sufficient with food. Even a relatively well-off country like Mexico got screwed when the price of maize suddenly skyrocketed. I just watched a...

Re: The native is here. Can I help you?

Ok, I've seen this number and similar before, and there's something I find a bit confusing about it. The total number of prisoners in Japan is about 80000. 7.7% of that is a bit over 6000. Then we...

Re: Bio Fuel is a Sin

The guy in the link is an obvious idiot, but more people need to read what purplemo said. Using food to make fuel isn't ultimately good for the environment and the resultant rise in food prices has...

Stop contributing to it then. Unlike the post you replied to, no part of your post was on topic. And might I humbly suggest you take a long hard look at your own previous posts in this thread before...

Re: The native is here. Can I help you?

Except the estimated 470 000 Finnish speakers in Sweden?



It means the Chinese who leave the country are part of a cunning plan to spread out and take over the world.

Re: The native is here. Can I help you?

You're rather young, I take it. No offense.


Japanese tv is like 90% variety and talk shows. At least it seems that way. The super bowl had (optional) English commentators, but that's about all I...

Re: Representation in Comparative Literature?

Validity? Hah. The reasoning behind this is that the interpretations help us further understand what it means to be human/the emotion of love/whatever. Sometimes it's just "help us understand". But...

First of all, and I'm saying this as (technically) a literature major, understand that this is all complete horseshit. But yes, the actual intentions of the author don't matter: what you think the...

Re: Trip to Japan - any help is welcome

Isn't Bikkuri ramen like 180 yen? That's probably the cheapest you can go if you're eating out. I haven't actually tried it but everyone says it's horrible :) I'm pretty sure Yoshinoya starts...
