Re: How many posts per day have you made?

I join the shambling hordes of the undead, albeit with a paltry 1.04 p.p.d..


I reckon it was humour.

Re: What are you playing right now?

Grim Dawn.
Hadn't ought to have put off buying it so long I suppose.

Re: Mad Max: Fury Road

I went to see it knowing nothing about it and the main thing I got out of it was this:

Re: Anime Manga:Hard copy or nah

More or less the same, although if I really enjoy something I will try to buy the DVD or box set if gets a local release, as I would do for any film or television programme.

Re: Learning Japanese in Japan?

I've studied at a university, with university-issued texts, as part of an exchange programme. Not altogether different to formal study elsewhere, except that the classes were conducted in Japanese...

Re: How to start watching YAOI

It certainly would. What you don't understand is that yaoi fans are horrible monsters totally uninterested in doing what is "better".

Re: How would you react if a friend told you they're "ex-gay?"

In this sense it's like "born again" virginity.

Re: How would you argue with someone too fucked up for reason?

Appeal to their basic drives or self-interest, and not to their reason. Failing that, violence is the only option.

That said, your example seems to be of a NAMBLA supporter using reason and the...

Re: Japanese Manga

I would say that if one has a kanji dictionary then they needn't learn kanji ahead of time. Of course a certain basic level of knowledge is required to use the dictionary effectively, but beyond...

Re: Japanese Culture

This is a nice example of why I think personal anecdotes aren't necessarily helpful. From my perspective, the Western view, too, is that acts of intimacy in public are improper. Of course, there are...

Re: Japanese Culture

Might be easiest to read personal accounts but I have my doubts as to its usefulness.


For instance, this sounds like poppycock to me..
それはたぶんない - boom, not affirmative, and it's 100% Japanese...

Re: What's better? Love or freedom

If we are treating freedom in the sense of latitude to self-direct, then freedom is preferable because it encompasses the ability to choose the other options anyway. You appear to be speaking of...

Re: Difference in British and American Humour

^Seinfeld is Jewish humour more than general American, I think.

Seems to me that Americans are a bit more sensitive about this sort of thing:...

Re: Can someone help me translate this?

な copula-y thing, like だ but attaches noun-adjectives to their objects or other constructions

Re: Pursuit of Purpose

What do you mean here?


What is the difference between these two concepts and how can we tell it? Are there things the existence of which is possible but the cognition of which is impossible? How...

Re: Do any of you write?

I like playing with words but I haven't anything of interest about which to write.

Re: What qualities are attractive to you in a partner?

Not a fatty.
Not a communist
Not a corpse.

Willing to compromise on that third one, actually.

Re: Does this really happen in Japan?

I don't think we can definitively call it a fantasy. In theory, by tradition the wife in a loving couple makes lunch for her husband. The undertones are clear, and certainly in the general sense it's...

Re: What ruined your day?

Stomach bug (better), not enough sleep (used to it), buggerised around with visa application (to be expected), major security issues on computer (sorted), and Steam is fucked and I've spent many...

Re: NO TITLE(literally couldn't think of one)

Saw a signature on another forum, decided I wanted a timeline, and so joined the site. Came on to the fora to report a bug with my list shortly thereafter, if I recall correctly.

Re: Do you have a social conscience?

Absolutely, I think it makes sense. Widespread ballooning of government coincided relatively closely with the church's shift from centre of culture to peripheral institution. Perhaps government fills...

Re: Studio Ghibli Closing Down

Miyazaki has retired, Suzuki has effectively retired, and Takahata must be getting close. If Ghibli continues to make films, but without the creative influence of any of those three, there's no...

Re: Do you have a social conscience?

I think I'll put myself in the "bare minimum" camp. I like to think that I would do more to actively support causes with which I agree if it were easier to do so, but I really don't devote a whole...
