Chat in English (英語で雑談) Part 140

Hey!!! you NEETs, nerds, YouTube-link spammers, pedophiles, neo-Nazis,
Yukorin enthusiasts, Nanako SOS admirers, Part-Time-Preachers,
Diplomats' spoiled sons, losers who can't remember Kanji characters,
Big-boobs fans, Weeaboos from all over the world, learners of Japanese
who are too lazy to update their Japanese blogs very often, and cunning
linguists. And let's hope the Internet-addicted housewife will come back soon!

Here is the place to have a ball!!!!!

I went to the thread you mentioned above, only to find a lunatic go on the rampage.

121 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 00:50:49
That guy is lying about being an American. His English is awful.
Or maybe the fact that he's American makes his terrible English all the more believable...

Sunday all the limited time of comfort is for tomorrow
Monday I get into shoes, unable to even read paper
Tuesday accidentally see an old friend but don't want to talk to him for now
Live up to a Tokyo Life
Even when it rains, I can walk without opening an umbrella if I choose the way
I sometimes deceive myself in order to live my life with my feelings unhurt
Thursday because the subway line has been extended to your work place
Friday that lifts my feelings a little
Live up to a Tokyo life
No matter how much we like each other or believe each other
each of us has a say, can't even leave a trifle thing alone, end up
losing more important things
Saturday while I'm not satisfied, morning comes
Sunday I break my voice, calling you
I live up to a Tokyo life
It's just that you are around
I'm living through a Tokyo life

What for?
Are you a writer or does collecting pens appeal to you that much?

I don't think so. Well, when I used to post a lot, I saw several
posters who speaks English as their mother tongue or second langage.
No idea whether they are lurking now, though. Probably not.

You start! Any topic will do as long as it's interesting to others.
Music, dramas, politics, etc. Or your personal experiences about
learning English. This is the English board of 2ch. Where else would you
put your burning emotions for English?

It's not 109.
hmm, I haven't read it yet, but it seems good.
Do you call yourself what's called a Harukist, or a person who loves to read him?

125 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 02:59:11
"This is a pen." is the most notorious sentence which is a good example of poor English education in Japan back in
old days. Believe it or not, it was on an English text book in Japan used at school.
The common understanding is that this sentence was created for 7th graders who starts
learin English in Japan only for the sake of teaching students "This is ------." structure
but as you notice there isn't almost no occasions where you use it in real pracical situations, unless the pen has
an unusual shape like these USB memories. http://pc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/2004/1018/solid.htm

If a pen has an unusual shape like the USB memories, "This is a pen" (even though it looks like sushi)"
can be used in a real setting, but "This is a pen." sentence alone with an illustration of a pen
on a page of Japanese English text book is a nightmare from a perspective of practical Engish use.
Everybody knows what a pen is and what it looks like so "This is a pen." is so artificial sentence
which you have no chances to use.

"This is Ken. Ken, this is Jenifer." are very practical example sentences because they
can be used when you introduce two persons to each of them, while "this is a pen"
couldn't be usd in a real setting except the cases like Sushi shaped pen.
>>113's response to >>112 doesn't make sense at all but I think the background
reason why he used "pen" just out of nowhere comes from this common understanding among Japanese
English learners of this stupid and notorious "This is a pen." sentence used in
a English textbook back in old days.

Fortunately, Japan's English education has focused a lot more on pratical use of
English for quite a long time, this type of stupid sentences just for the sake of teaching
a sentence structure without contexts are all gone.

126 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 04:16:40
Yea, I see your point.

By the way, I feel your sentence said a same thing again and again.
Is there more brief and good way to describe to what he said?

I often do the same thing in my writing.
so, I really want to know the way to compose precise and brief sentence without
repeating a same thing.

127 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 05:07:49
I was half kidding. I'm a native speaker, so what >>112 said would mean
that I wouldn't be allowed to post.

American students often have the same problem. It's tough to become
a better writer without a teacher individually correcting your essays,
but I guess my main suggestion would be to read over everything you write
again, constantly asking yourself "Does this sentence add anything?"
If not, delete it. A lot of people think of writing as just a process
of creation, but revision and deletion are also very important.

128 :126:2010/04/27(火) 05:29:56
Thank you for your sincere advice.
I keep in mind what you said.

129 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 07:15:47
>>123 is this a song? emotions are well expressed.

130 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 09:53:45
So you'd been lurking. lol
I thought native speakers weren't here to chat. Many of them, who I talked with here, used a particular name
so that they could let us know who they were. That's why.
Now to answer your question, yes, you guessed almost right. What >>112 said exactly was that s/he didn't want those people here
who had good ability to use English because it's boring. That naturally involves native speakers, right?
Also, I half expected you were kidding. lol

All I can say about forming English sentences is practice makes perfect.
If you meant to say you weren't used to the typical essay format such as introduction, body, conclusion,
then it might also be good to read how-to books or search for websites on essay writing.

Yes, it is. It's Tokyo Life by Kan.
The song's kind of old (actually I happened to find it on YH lately) but I find it very good and melodious.
Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ai81Qx6oYk

131 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 12:09:14
I bought a book "The Speeches ofTexas Daddy" to learn English today.
I've been disapponted a little.
He is a very logical thinker, but he can't be it only when he talked about the atomic bomb issue.

He says to us that the U.S. used two atomic bomb in order to save Japanese people and
keep the commies out.

The U.S. should apply the logic to Japan's agressive war against China.

132 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 13:32:13
I'm surprised at that. Isn't Tony usually on Japan's side? I would have expected him to condemn the actions of the US government.
Anyway, I think most would agree that both the atomic bomb droppings and Nanking massacre were unfortunate. Both resulted in many dead civilians.
So you shouldn't try to justify either, since the losses arguably outweighed the benefits.
But it's a complicated issue, and I'm not in any position to give lectures or claim objectivity. So if you disagree with my views, please don't flame me.

On the topic of books... does anybody read Haruki Murakami novels? I just recently started reading "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles".
I love it so far.

133 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 14:13:31
Sorry,I am poor at English,so I may not understand your views.

The Nanking massacre didn't exisit.
Of course many people died and we can't compare the dead of two atomic bomb
and many many devasting air raids all over Japan with the dead of battle in Nanking(not masscare).

The winner makes history? I don't think so.
I believe that the U.S. will overcome Japan massacre someday.

134 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 15:06:54
Oh No! Boring boring! English is too difficult for Japanese.
I think We Japanese are really bad at learning foreign languages.
We are a bit stupid about learning languages. So it's waste of time to learn English.
Even Some good English that japanese wrote here are also boring for Gaijins, I think.

So I expect Gaijin's Japanese! Your Japanese would be better than my English.
That's why I will teach you Japanese!! Improve your Japanese, Gaijin people!

135 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 15:15:48
Thank you for explaining your view to me. That's very interesting.
I'm curious, how widespread is the belief that there was no massacre in Nanking?
I don't mean to be controversial, but is it a common view among Japanese that it was a battle, rather than a massacre?

I would like to learn more about it from a Japanese perspective, rather than out of a Canadian textbook or off of the internet.
Thank you to anyone who might enlighten me.

136 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 16:28:42
Here comes another man/woman of justice on a crusade to correct Japan's incorrectness or whatever.
Thanks but no worries - schools, textbooks and the mass media only emphasize the utter atrocity just as the Chinese Communist Party propagandizes it.

137 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 16:42:34
You seems to have a strictly imprtial attitude.
I really appreciate it.
But my poor English can't explain the problems right away.

I think Japanese are specailly interested in Nanking massacre and most of us
have known it as a knowledge of historical textbooks.


is one of the objections to the Nanking problem.

I don't think Japanese didn't kill civilians in Nanking,
but think Japanese must accurately know what occurred there.

138 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 17:12:00
>I think Japanese are specailly interested in Nanking massacre and most of us
>have known it as a knowledge of historical textbooks.

I think Japanese aren't specailly interested in Nanking massacre and most of us
have known it as a knowledge of historical textbooks.

It's been quite some time since my last visit, and that loony stream guy is still around?!
Seriously, are there any mods on 2ch? The board administration failed miserably.

140 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 19:22:54
Who are you?

141 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 20:20:49
Do you think Ozawa will lose his political power after this?

142 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 21:19:02
Ozawa Maria > other Ozawa

143 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/27(火) 21:54:23

so to speak, she is Touch Detective?

145 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/28(水) 01:11:20
Thank you! I'll watch that as soon as I get the chance later today. I appreciate it.

146 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/28(水) 03:03:17
I would play Touch Detective with her.

I'm not goose.

149 :埋地 ◆eMTYZaOJDw :2010/04/28(水) 20:37:48
Umm, I maybe a harukist. Because I've read almost his novels,
"Hear the Wind Sing", "Hard-boiled wonderland and the End of the World","Norwegian Wood",
"South of the Border, West of the Sun", "The Wind-up Bird Chronicle", "Sputnik Sweetheart",
"Kafka on the Shore", "Afterdark", and "1Q84".
So, I maybe a harukist.

150 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/28(水) 20:57:21
No one cares.

151 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/28(水) 22:42:08
I want you to be interested in me.

152 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/29(木) 03:17:51
no way.

153 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/29(木) 04:03:15
You treat me coldly.
Mother Teresa said that the opposite of love is not hate, but indifference.

154 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/29(木) 04:52:54
I see! Once I'm done The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, which one would you recommend? Which is your personal favourite?
And can you suggest any other Japanese authors? They don't get much exposure here, unfortunately.
Thank you.

155 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/29(木) 16:35:09
Shut the fuck up.

156 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/29(木) 17:20:19
hi, all.
it chick down to announce for national team of Japan for soccer.
the supporters have focused on the possibility of Shunsuke Nakamura.
I think it is pity to declare affecting game or player something disputable such as cheat, backhander, cult, etc.
but, even in a neutral, I've anxiety about him aging Nakamura, for example,
anymore his FK isn't accuracy,
anymore his keeping possession isn't brilliant,
anymore his body isn't in good condition for a long time.

Nakata star player of Japan retired at 29 years old,
but Nakamura is 31 years old currently.
most of players will be started his performance down arround 30 years old.

I love Nakamura, especially the Super FK for ManU in the match CL.
so I don't want to see if he failed in the WC.

157 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/29(木) 17:21:01

158 :埋地 ◆eMTYZaOJDw :2010/04/29(木) 21:21:58
I wanna recommend "Norwegian Wood" to you.
By the way, I wanna recommend another japanese author to you, Shinichi Hoshi.
He is one of the japanese famous and popular novelist and well-known for these
novels, "Bokko-chan", Officious god", " A man who came from the earth","An
ending of your hopeness" and so on.
These novels I introduce to you is what I've read.
In that, I wanna recommend "Bokko-chan" to you. Especially in the novel, a short
story what's called "The last person in the earth" is my favorite story in the novel.
The short story is described the end of the world.

159 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/29(木) 22:17:49
Hoshi Shinichi was born in a wealthy clan, who founded Hoshi Pharmaceutical College.

160 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/30(金) 00:22:15
I read almost all of his works when I was young, too.
he most impressive story which I still remember is the one about an alien whose mouth is the same as man's anus and vice versa.

161 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/30(金) 03:19:34
Thank you very much!
I'm going to the store today, so I'll look around for "Norwegian Wood" and "Bokko-chan".
I enjoy novels and stories about the end of the world, so I'm particularly looking forward to Bokko-chan.
Unfortunately, if it isn't translated, I'll be out of luck.
I'll have to order it online and read it once I have a better grasp on the Japanese language.
That'll take a while, lol.

Anyway, thank you again!

DOOM: Repercussions of Evil

John Stalvern waited. The lights above him blinked and sparked out
of the air. There were demons in the base. He didn't see them,
but had expected them now for years. His warnings to Cernel Joson
were not listenend to and now it was too late. Far too late for now, anyway.
John was a space marine for fourteen years. When he was young he
watched the spaceships and he said to dad "I want to be on the ships daddy."
Dad said "No! You will BE KILL BY DEMONS"
There was a time when he believed him. Then as he got oldered he stopped.
But now in the space station base of the UAC he knew there were demons.
"This is Joson" the radio crackered. "You must fight the demons!"
So John gotted his palsma rifle and blew up the wall.
"HE GOING TO KILL US" said the demons
"I will shoot at him" said the cyberdemon and he fired the rocket missiles.
John plasmaed at him and tried to blew him up. But then the ceiling
fell and they were trapped and not able to kill.
"No! I must kill the demons" he shouted
The radio said "No, John. You are the demons"
And then John was a zombie.

163 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/04/30(金) 19:17:45
That is a lame meme.

164 :埋地 ◆eMTYZaOJDw :2010/04/30(金) 21:00:04
Oh, thank you for writing one thing I forgot to do.
The story about his father, Hajime Hoshi, who founded Hoshi
Pharmaceutical College is described on the non-fiction,
"Government Officials are strong, the People are weak".
In japanese, it's called "人民は弱し 官吏は強し".

My pleasure.

Everybode Listen!
Im caught in a bad romance.

168 :Hello:2010/05/01(土) 05:09:59
Hey everyone. English speaking American here. Currently, I'm using a translator so I can understand the Japanese that is written on this website.
You guys can ask me anything if you like.

169 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 05:35:15
Why are you such faggots?

170 :Hello:2010/05/01(土) 05:36:16
Because we watch too much anime.

171 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 05:49:14

What he said is something like a friendly greeting.
So, don't take seriously.
That is a commonplace at least in here.

172 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 05:53:52
If you guys who watch too much anime are faggots, I'm king of faggot probably.

173 :Satou:2010/05/01(土) 06:35:26
Using a Japanese to English translator is horrible, and vice-versa.
Look at this translated post from the Psychology board...
"As for you it does also the air which lacks silence in me."
It sounds like really bizarre poetry.

174 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 06:39:17
Faggots, unite!

175 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 07:01:48
I don't want to unite with you. I'm saving my virginity for someone special.
Yukio Hatoyama.

176 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 12:27:11
Gordon Brown is a lying homo. He and Hatoyama fuck eah others arse holes every night.
Igirisujin must stand up and bring pride back to Great Britain.

177 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 16:22:06

178 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 16:50:00
Are you saying faggots command the world?
It might be true. Anus commands the human being.

179 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 17:43:09

180 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 17:50:44
No, I'm saying Gordon Brown and Hatoyama fuck each other's arse holes every night.
In other words, they fuck each other in the arse and fondle each other's balls.

181 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 17:53:17
I agree.

182 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 19:30:22
So, who watches anime?

183 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 19:46:00

184 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 20:04:42
You are a faggot.

185 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 21:28:34
You are a hard core fan of Hatoyama. What makes you so committed?
Do you love his English too?

186 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 22:38:42
Forget Hatoyama. Gordon Brown is in now.

187 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 22:45:30
Do you think they are supporting each other with each hot anus?

188 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 23:37:45
They shove chilled cucumbers up their asses to cool down their hot anuses.

189 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 23:52:41
The chilled supporting rate of 20% could be enough.

190 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/01(土) 23:53:28
By the way, anime is getting more and more boring each year.
Someone said Korea will take over the anime/manga industry in 10 years.
I don't think that will happen though.

191 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/02(日) 02:58:41
The only manga series any of you should be looking at is the "SUPER CUCUMBER" series starring Yukio Hatoyama.
He rides all over Japan on his motorcycle, using cold cucumbers to chill hot anuses.

192 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/02(日) 03:24:03

People don't seriously believe that such a thing will happen, do they?

193 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/02(日) 04:20:53
Outsourcing everything to Korea solves every problem in existance.

194 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/02(日) 10:44:24
He used to make people(in Japan) hot. Now he's making them cool.
The dream was over.

195 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/02(日) 11:47:55
About outsourcing, it doen't have to be South Korea that
Japan should rely on. South Korea likes to copy anything
of Japanese origin anyway.

Ok now. I have a discussion topic for you.

Since you are mostly male NEETs with chronic hikikomori tendencies, why
don't you find a woman who works all day and comes home tired and hungry,
and cook, pamper, accompany her?

Your life would be more sustainable and you would feel wanted.

You don't have to marry her or make commitments, just be a good guy
she can come home to and relax with.

Something like an "home friend" relationship.

Why and why not? Discuss...

232 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/03(月) 11:07:49
I all enjoy my own hikikomori world although I have women(wife and daughters) who love me.

Sorry, I was not responding to your post. I just introduced myself.
Why don't you introduce yourself to hikkies? Are you one of them?

235 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/03(月) 13:03:38
I'm not hikky, but I think that if I lived in Japan I would be classified as one eventually.
I spend most of my time at home, leaving only for University, and even that is increasingly difficult to do.
Hm, the only thing that might keep me from isolating myself entirely is the fact that my parents won't support me when I move to Japan.
I'll be forced to work. I suspect the rest of my time will be spent in some small apartment, though, wasting away. Haha.

But how do you expect them to actually meet the women if they generally keep away from social activities?
Other than that, though, I would love to have the life you described. It'd be great.

236 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/03(月) 13:37:40
I view you as a positive hikky who has a life plan for the future.

237 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/03(月) 13:49:33
We do not call such a guy hikky.

238 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/03(月) 13:58:08
You don't?
But I believe most of the hikkies have their own plan for the future.

This week is called GOLDEN WEEK in Japan. We have consecutive national holidays which are supposed to boost economy.
As for me, a hikky with less money who never contribute the economy.

>>233 No, I am the Janiztarento fan, not a hikikomori.
>>231,>>233 are mine.The thought occurred to me when I watched this
clip about Kame cooking for his drama crew at the shooting studio.
It would be such a great world to come home to cooked food and a
supportive, pampering male company. Since hikikomoris are housebound,
why shouldn't they cook and care for a working woman? In return the woman
becomes his outside agent, buying him manga, anime, figurines, posters,
accompanying him when he needs the company.
It makes so much sense.
Actually it could be a drama story.

There are several types of hikkies.
Some hikkies have regular jobs but don't like to socialize much.

244 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/03(月) 22:33:29

It's not lack of the ability to interact with people but your preference.

As one of hikkikomoris, I would say they are mostly self-centered people.
So I doubt they can be a dedicated partner.

249 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/03(月) 23:55:44
You have no chance to meet someone...
It's becoming increasingly difficult to socialize with people here in Japan, even
compared to two or three years ago back then.
Single men and women are all having hard time looking for their soulmates.
All these couple of years are marked as, say, almost a "pradigm shift" of views of marriage.
Young people were trying to choose "good-looking mates."
Their mates had to be handsome, or beautiful in the first place.
But the reality is, they can't find anyone with that condition.
They began to find someone "not so handsome, not so beautiful."
Of course handsome men and beautiful women are best even now, but they started
to learn to compromise.

250 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/04(火) 01:43:12
I don't know about that... For me, it's true that I am very apathetic at times, but I like to make people happy.
So while I think all hikikomori are somewhat self-centered, I think it differs to what degree.
I would personally like nothing more than to do all I can to make a woman happy. I'd even learn to cook, haha.

>>249 Looks are important,everyone should try to look their best,
actually trying to look good is nicer than looking good by default.
Men and women should groom well for comfortable social interaction.
So there should be a group meeting to discuss the skills, habits, likes, dislikes
etc. The women should ask specifically :
What can he cook? How is he with the housework?
Is he able to care for a woman, is he willing to learn?
Is he able to take away her worries, comfort her tired mind?
Can he for instance clear the table and and run a bath for her,
after dinner? etc etc
What manga/anime/film/music is he into? What are his must-have
Likewise, the hikki asks the woman what she is willing to do.
Will she provide for both of them? Buy his manga/anime/film/music?
What does she expect in the evening? What can she give?

This is a partnership contract that should be time limited.
Say, you commit to it for a day, week, month and three months.
After that all ties are severed unless the both are willing to
Also it should be in written contract as to exactly what conditions
they have agreed to.
So these issues, normally not talked between dating couples, should be resolved
much before, and a synergy is found rather than clashing interests.
Think of it companies merging for profit, not people making sacrifices.
like in a relationship.That way chances of success would be high.
It is like having good flatmates, rather than romantic relationships.
I think it is better than a relationship,

263 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/05(水) 11:51:33
I don't think working women think Hikky men attarctve. Women want men to
be tough basically, and Hikky men tend to be considered to be weak.
I wonder if attractive Hikky men exist in the first place. It's not about
just about preparing meal for a working women. I mean, they don'want ugly unattractive
Hikky men to serve meals for them. They don't want to live with them for that matter.

If there were Hikky men who look like Johnny's boys, some working women could hire them
to get them to prepare meals, cleaning rooms etc. I'm a man but I don't want to serve working women.
Call me I'm against gender equality or whatever, but I think me should be a brad winner. I can't take the
ideas of men act like a servant of working women. If working women take even hikky men who prepare
for thier meals superor to working women, then I'd take the job. If working women think they are
superior to hikky men, then I wouldnt want to take the job.

Besides the condition I said, I'd need to make love with a working woman who lives
with him as a condition to work for her. So the woman would need to be
beautful. Even a Hikky man wants to make love with a (beautiful) even if
they know they are asking for the moon. Even women have sexula drive so
I want one sex or two a week included in the contract with working woman.

It was fun. Especially in the Hall of the Great Buddha in Todaiji-temple.
There is a hole of one of the pillars is as big as the Great Buddha's nostril
to creep through. They say if you do it, you can get a benefit to be in good
health. In there, I saw a boy who looks about 16 creeping through there. But,
his body is too big to do it, so, his mother helped him to do it.
Before he did, I tried to do it too. But, after that, I gave up.
Because I'm nearly 20, so, if I did, I'll be ashamed too.

This sounds like a Swedish househusband thread. It is very common in

271 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/05(水) 15:55:56
Social isolation is usually the result of various mental conditions. It doesn't normally have anything to do with how attractive a person is.
Unless that person has been insulted, and stays inside because of that. But that can't be said of many hikkies.
So saying that hikkies as a whole are unattractive is silly.

As for the rest of your post, you seem to have a problem with supposedly "strong" women.
What you basically said is that men are superior to women, so they can't be in a lower position than a woman.
How ridiculous. The fact that a woman is a woman doesn't lower her status as a human. I thought we'd all gotten over the patriarchal bullshit.
And if you want to have mandatory sex in the contract, hire a prostitute. That's what they do.
And I'm a male, by the way, not some raging feminist.

I wouldn't call it a mandatory sex because a working woman'd hire a male hikky who
she thinks attractive besides having cooking and claning skills.
It's win-win as long as every man and woman has sexua drive.

A prostitute is out of the question. There's no love there. As for a sex of
a hikky and a working woman, there may not be love but, it's different from
a sex with postitute in a way that they are attracd with each other to some extent.
I'd call it vertual ralationship or whatever. Not as dry a relationship as that with

279 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/06(木) 04:22:41
I am glad that hikki-office lady idea is creating some discussions!
I think every woman would love a man to cook and pamper her in the evening.
That is why men who cook are so popular. We need a person who cares for us.
A hikikomori can do this job if he has the right mental attitude.
It has nothing to do with any ideology, it is driven purely by economy.
>>263 I want to remind you that originally this union is meant for a
mutual benefit for the working woman coming home late and the hikikomori staying
at home all the time. It is not a relationship union. It is more like a flatmate
partnership, but your flatmate(s) works for you. It is not based on attraction
but compatibility of needs.

280 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/06(木) 04:48:10
btw i don't see how person caring for someone is seen as a "servant".
If you are a cook, hotal attendant, masseur, laundry staff, does that make you a servant?
No. Cooking for your flatmate, helping her relax does not make you a servant,
You are not her butler, just someone who does specific tasks while you are at home.
It is just a mutually convenient existence.

281 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/06(木) 06:24:44
Hotel attendant, laundry staff cook jobs all have servant-ish jobs if you ask me.

From old times, women cook for men. that's a legacy and that remains
in men's minds. Believe it or not, very common line Japanese men used until a few decades
ago when they ask for woman's hand was "Will you make miso soup (every day) for me?"
The line meant the same as "Will you marry me?" back then.
Miso soup is different from house to house and as you know it's staple soup in Japan's cuisine.

I think in America, the equivalent of miso soup would chicken soup in that
it's slightly different from house to house and it resembles your mother.
I heard chicken soup is often served when you catch a cold, although miso soup
is served no matter if you come down with a cold or not.

Don't know chicken soup is popyular in UK, Australia, NZ etc.

>>281 I think it is so sweet and romantic to ask that question.

It is such a sincere bonding question.

I understand gender segregation has been the norm. However times are changing.

You have a mother astronaut, with a supportive husband, which is so awesome.
It is like her family works like a team.

That is the sort of bonding that you need to build families.

BTW I love miso soup. I try to make it for myself, but I wish to learn
how to make it taste just right.

I don't have enough money now.
However, It is a eternal truth that I am a super genius NEET.

327 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/08(土) 18:17:21
Hmm, whether or not to make pancakes for late breakfast...

What kind of breakfasts do people in this thread like? Traditional miso soup & co?

328 :イギリス人:2010/05/08(土) 19:30:37
Two slices of very lightly toasted bread with a light spread of
blueberry or raspberry conserve or jam. Delicious.

Pancakes are nice, but usually too much effort to make.

330 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/08(土) 21:25:17
I went to cinema and watched the movie with my gay friend,how about you?

331 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 00:04:56
My day is only halfway over. It's a little more than 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
I've got plenty of things left to do today, including watching Doctor Who in two hours :-3

What movie did you watch with your friend, and what did you two think of it? I hope you don't mind me asking...

332 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 00:08:03
I watched alice in wonderland,do you know it?
its was really good,I like that kind of movies.
where do you live in?

333 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 00:22:38
I haven't seen it yet, I'm waiting for it to come out on rental DVDs. It seems like something I'd like, too.
I live in Oxford, UK. I'm not a native speaker though. I only live here because I'm living with my boyfriend, who did some studies here.
We'll be leaving to Germany in a month or two, as he's German.

334 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 00:43:33
its amazing that you have a german boyfreind.
but is it okey for you to live in Germany? I mean,do you speak German too?
are you studying German?
and how is the life in Oxford? are people kind?

335 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 02:04:43
I'm from Sweden, and as both Sweden and Germany are a part of the EU, it's fine.
I studied some German many years ago. My German is rusty but it's nothing that daily exposure won't cure.

Life in Oxford is pretty good. The people are fairly kind, and as I live quite a bit outside the city centre the surroundings are pretty great for someone who likes nature.
There are lots of birds singing virtually all the time, which I love. My poor boyfriend doesn't, as they wake him up too early sometimes.

336 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 02:12:13
>>335 sweden? really? its really cool.
how did you find this thread?

sounds nice,but I often heard that food in UK is not good,what do you think?
is food yummy? do you like Japanese food?

337 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 02:15:14
...Hmm. I missed the start of the tv show episode I was planning to watch.
Oh well, I'll just have to wait until after it's finished, and watch it online.

Alice in Wonderland is apparently from Oxford, and they're not shy about it.
Several of my boyfriend's teachers kept using drawings from Through The Looking Glass and the like
for any examples in power point slides and paper hand-outs.

338 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 02:26:25
I found it several years ago, when it was at around part 22, because of my boyfriend's interests in Japanese internet culture.
He's been interested in 2ch, 2chan, 4chan (and later 4-ch) since 2004 or so.
I've been away for around two years, though. I couldn't post to 2ch when I moved to England almost two years ago,
I assumed IP ban or the like. I tried posting at January this year, if I recall correctly.
I still wasn't allowed to post. I was listening to my boyfriend's ipod this morning, and came across the song "Southern Cross".
It made me think of this site and so I decided to have a try again. And this time it worked!
I just don't know for how long it will last. :-/

339 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 02:39:47
English food isn't that bad, but sort of quite fatty. I can see why they use malt vinegar so much.
A lot of traditional English food is quite unhealthy... I've become quite fond of some things, though.
Steak and ale pie, for instance. Pretty great, but apparently it's supposed to be eaten with potato chips
(as opposed to crunchy "crisps"). I'd rather skip that and just have it with steamed vegetables.
My boyfriend and I tried making it last week, it turned out pretty tasty, but we forgot about that we halved
the recipe, so we overcooked it a little.

I'm quite fond of Japanese food, even natto. But then again I'm used to pickled herring, and "kaviar", in Sweden,
so maybe that explains why I like natto in spite of that most people, including Japanese, don't.

I apologise for posting so many posts in a row :-/ I don't have much to do this hour except for washing dishes, folding more laundry, and waiting for the tv episode to be put online.
I've been sitting here taking a bit of a break with some herbal tea.

340 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 05:01:51
So there are many geniuses mentioned on this thread

>>272-san who is Nordic with a genius wife
>>339-san is a Swede who has a genius Oxbridge student as a
>>331-san who claims to be a NEET genius.
That was some useful observation. (NOT)

341 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 06:46:43

I agree, english food is unhealthy. We like to fry pretty much everything (including chocolate bars...)

342 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 08:03:21
Eating enough food is no better healthy than taking alcohol is.

343 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 09:37:38
>>342 I agree.

Today I went to Brazilian cafe. Had fejoada and then macchiato. The coffee was good. I wouldn't say the food was that good.

Then met my collegues at a posh bar, dressed casually. Had Havana Mojito. Take a way the mint, ice and the pipette,
there was hardly any rum in it. Pass.

Then I went to an 80s college party, had a couple of pints, sweated it off on the dance floor, invited a couple of young
Chinese and a Brit =to dance with me.

Now I can't sleep. So I, the Kame wota, decided to write to you what I had done today.

What is at fault? The macchiato?

344 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 10:14:05
Japanese food are not healthy now.
We use a lot of artificial sweetener.
The Japanese pickles sold in stores often include many artificial coloring.

345 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 10:17:30

If you're in bed with the Chinese and the Brit, I think it's pretty clear what
the fault was.

346 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 10:49:27
I think Japaneses food is really healthy,there are not a lot of fat people in Japan.
US people eat too much.

347 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 11:10:04
I think , indeed, it is not nation's but individual problem.
There are a number of fat in Japan also.

Fat people have a weak mind.So they cannot help eating so much on their heart.

348 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 11:12:21
The US food merchandise printed with the norigication "0g trans fat per serving ."
Japanese food safety seems to be late.
I think that US people only eat too much but that the food is safety.

349 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 11:13:23

350 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 12:07:33
at least,I don't want to live in US,I went to some countries,but I realized that food
in other countries is generally not so good, also people are not as kind as Japan.
Japanese clerks are really polite,helpful,kind.
Japan is the best in my opinion.

351 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 12:16:34
I have never been to overseas yet.and I am twenty four year old.
Now, I am studying English very hard everyday,in spite of my hard job as a formal employee.
I always have approximately 4~5 hours sleep.
I always feel drowsy.

But I have a Dream.
I wanna to be English teacher in high school.

I hope.
"Hope" is good thing.
so I love the movie "The Showshank Redemption".

352 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 12:24:21
Are you a Japanese? If you are not,
Thank you for your having good impression on Japan.
Do I have "The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence"?
I've never gone abroad. I want to see the grass of other countries sometime.

353 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 12:45:35
its good that you have a dream, hope you can be a English teacher.
why do you want to become a English teacher ?

354 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 13:10:19
because I like studying English. and English is the most valuable course of Japan,I think.

355 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 13:32:37
okey,good luck with your English.
I think you can be a teacher soon.

356 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 13:42:56
Thank you.
I have never been to overseas, so I wanna try to go abroad once.
Therefore, I have to save money.
I will go to Canada or England to learn English.
Probably, Canada I will. Because English which is used in Canada is,so to speak,
neutral English.
English which is taught in Japanese school is a neutral English.

357 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 13:58:45
how much money have you saved so far?

358 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 14:26:10
It's a little little money I have saved.
I have to save money not less than three hundred yen,to succeed my trip

359 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 14:31:47
\300? I guess you meant \3,000,000.

360 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 14:34:30
Oops... sorry, yes ,you are right.
I need to save \3,000,000 approximately.

361 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 14:40:03
come on,you must work hard or you never can save that much money..
are you a part time worker now?

362 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 14:52:44
No I am a full-time employee.
I will manage to do.
Just I should do it.

363 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 14:58:39
But once you've saved up enough money, you're gonna simply quit the job and go abroad?

364 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 15:15:47
Yes yes. I will quit my job.
Perhaps every my colleague will say that I am reckless.

Hello, all
I'm stduying English in the university.
Today is Mother's Day.
Have you prepared presents for your mother?

366 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 15:39:07

I forgot. oops...

367 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 15:42:22
I cannot do anything for mother's day.
now and then I cannot do.
because my living is just pleasure for parents.

368 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 17:12:00
I bought a cake for mothers day,so we are going to eat that cake after dinner.
but it was just 298 yen ..lol cheap cake haha.
how about you? did you buy anything for your mom? or did anything for her?

369 :イギリス人:2010/05/09(日) 19:00:19
Here, Mother's Day is the fourth Sunday of the Lent period - so this year,
it was on March 14th. The UK's tradition of Mothering Sunday dates back about
500 years, but is now very commercialised, much like the US Mother's Day, which
came about in 1908 after many attempts to establish one.

370 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 19:40:16
>>345 there is no mention of that kind of relationship in what I wrote.

Either you don't understand what you read, or you have a repressed
sexuality problem.

371 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 22:51:42
I haven't, but different countries have mother's day on different dates.
I gave her a handkerchief on which I had made an embroidery of her favourite flower.

372 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/09(日) 23:14:36
Good luck, in what ways do you tend to study English?

373 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/10(月) 03:14:44
Aren't you k-tan? Because I remember k-tan's boyfriend was German.
K-tan has brown hair. I don't mean to impose handlename on her.
If k-tan wants to hide under anonimity, go ahead.
Dolph Lundgren is not as tall as the date of him claims
according to her story.

Swedish singer Saga is her favorite.

374 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/10(月) 03:30:40
I wonder why person who's been living with German boyfriend
loves a flat faced, skinny bodid japanese.

375 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/10(月) 04:01:22
I guess Natto is O.K throughtout Japan nowadays.Mid Western?-
Kansai(around kyoto, osaka) People used to hate natto but I guess
they can find natto anywhere in kansai. It depends on individuals and natto
is not as hated as it used to be in kansai.

As for me, I eat natto at least once a week or so. Natto's fishy?
smell and stickiness don't offend me. I'm begining to feel uncertain though.

The other day I went to a gyudonya (beef bowl shop). I ate often at gyudonya
because it's rather delicious and cheap.
A gray haired, chubby, middled-aged guy sat next to me.
Then some strong smell started to flow from him.

I thought it was from his socks. It was like the smell of socks with water
left unwashed for certain period. I frowned and spoke ill of him
on my mind.
Soon I realised he ordered natto teisyoku!
Natto teisyoku is not something it shold be in gyudonya at that time.
Natto teisyoku is usually served or orderd in the morining time.
But the gundon shop I went serves natto teisyoku anytime and the
guy orderd it.

When I know it's natto and I am prepared to eat natto, its smell is
nice. But without prior knowleadge, it's bad.

376 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/10(月) 04:05:05
I guess this is it.

377 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/10(月) 04:11:52
I borrowed a link from somebodyelse's homepage.

378 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/10(月) 06:40:35
Wow, didn't think anyone would remember. I'm not trying to hide, so no need to worry :-)
I just didn't see the point of using a handle while being someone "new" here.
Some things confuse me though. I don't remember hearing of a singer named Saga, so I apologise for being ignorant about that.

Also, while I do remember reading the wikipedia article and more about Dolph Lundgren because
it by some reason came up in the conversation, I don't recall discussing his height. orz

379 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/10(月) 06:51:01
Interesting. I have never smelled natto without seeing it first. Thank you for the images, too.
Garlic is usually regarded by others as stinky unless they're eating it themselves, but I've never
felt that way. Perhaps it's because of being used to it from a young age - my parents used to cook
all sorts of international cuisine, and so I learned to regard the scent as something pleasant.

406 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/10(月) 22:16:36
I had diarrhea today.

407 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/10(月) 22:50:19
why? ate something bad?

408 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/10(月) 22:56:55
I don't know why.
But one thing for sure, it's not because of natto.
I eat natto everymorning.

hey guys, let's not talk about excrement protruding or seeping out of the anal canal of humans and animals.
instead, we can discuss a wide range of topical issues with regard to, say, underclothes covering female crotches, buttocks and such.
i mean, what type of pantsu do you fancy?

Kamewota danced with a couple of unacquainted guys.
She sent a ok sign to them.

415 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 01:28:21
kamewota=k-tan is a suprising fact.
I had never imagined she was k-tan.
Kamewota's address and her passion for a johnny's talent barred me
from reckoning she was k-tan.

In my image k-tan was not a kind of girl who was likely to be
the victim of johhnny's.

416 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 01:38:56
side-tie pantsu

Who is Kamewota? She isn't k-tan, though.

417 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 01:48:41

why should a Kame fan be his "victim"?

420 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 02:32:32

I didn't write that. My life isn't that exciting at the moment. I'm more or less like an at-home-wife this month, as my partner and I are moving soon.
We were supposed to move at the end of this month, but some unexpected issues cropped up and now it might be a few weeks later.

By the way, what's kamenashi?

424 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 03:11:37
I'm glad you are as smart as I thought you were.

this guy is kamenashi.

it felt strange that person who has a boyfriend like him
loves the quite opposite face like kamenashi.
Now everything unfolds.

425 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 03:19:01
I'm not racist, I find a wide variety of looks appealing.

That Kamenashi guy, didn't he play a character in one of the Gokusen series?
Pretty cute, but nothing I'd obsess about. Though one thing that always strikes
me about guys with that sort of hair is how much they somehow remind me of kittens.
Makes me want to pet their hair, as if they are some sort of house cat.

426 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 03:20:00
You must not forget your country's big star "saga".

To be honest I think she has good powerful,high tone voice as a prosinger
and has good lookings too.
I guess her English intonation is too influenced by American
acccent, don't you think?

She could have a chance as a commercial singer but she moves
the other way around.

427 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 03:32:31
I feel her voice is American. Just an impression.

How important is Odinism and stories surrounding it, like viking

I might be called right winger. But I don't have much interest in
japanese myth and imperial family. I guess these things should be preserved but
these don't excite me much. these are not related to daily life.

Same thing for most of scandinavians?

428 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 03:38:56
k-tan and k-tan's boyfriend would make a genius hybrid of
Heisenberg and Bohr.

429 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 03:46:20
Well, that's depressing. Quite a waste of a decent voice.

If we're discussing more "viking" style music, I prefer Nordman.
I only have two of their albums, I should probably buy the rest some day.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqE8Um9t8CU Beautiful song, great lyrics. Apparently Ultima Thule made a cover of it, yuck.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vakawRdQkmw and so on. The band is good stuff. I prefer my ethnorock without disgusting racism.

Have some random native-pride music that's not racist:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDkbtCcIMlU Swedish version
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2vGBY7nXx8 The inferior English version.

By the way, the natives of Scandinavia are the Sami people.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sami_people They're pretty awesome, but unfortunately like virtually all indigenous people they've gotten the short end of the stick.

430 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 03:58:07
I wish. I'm not likely to reproduce, though.

I don't know how important Odinism is in general in Sweden. I'm very fond of those stories though. Especially the crazy antics of Thor.
Slightly related, the book Röde Orm is pretty fun and great. I own two copies of it, even.
Though that is mostly because they are two different editions with different covers, from two different publishers.

431 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 04:01:19
This song is known as a song of Ian Stuart's, British pioneer of
white nationalist music. Saga sung it as tribute to Ian.

If you find the song beautiful and nostalg, you don't have to hide.
The song is originally from danish rock band, white lion.
White lion is not racist band and composer, Mike Tramp
has wife from southeast Asia.

The guy in the center is wearing a pendant of thor?

He is very cool. Is he your future husband?
You might not know who cool-tak and noriaki.
I think cool tak and noriak are comparable to techno viking.
They are pride of Japan.

433 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 04:10:44
I just would like to point out that it is possible to be racist and still gleefully fraternise with "inferior" individuals.
One can even be "inferior" yet still discriminate against the group one belongs to. There are plenty of homosexual homophobes, or misogynous women, for instance.

One of my dear friends is ethnically a Jew, but since he looks really "Aryan", at one point an active Nazi befriended him.
That Nazi's attitude was more or less "Jews in general are bad, but you don't count because you're cool and look pure"

434 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 04:16:44
Thor's Hammer is a pretty classic pendant. I'd like to buy or make one some day.

Norse mythology is popular in japan in some categories
such as RPGs and adventure comic and novels.

Bersekベルセルク is apparently infuluenced by north western culture.
Berserk is scandinavian language. I have not read bersek though.
I don't like dwaring style of Bersek, firstg of all.

This vehicle is called valkyrie. I didn't know what valkyrie was.
Because it was pronunced English way like vaelkiri:.
Japanese generally call it like walcure, German way.
Word Valkyrie(walcure) is widely known in japan, probably spread by
Wagner's music in Apocalypse Now.

436 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/11(火) 04:32:29
homosexual homophobes

It reminds me of John Wayne Gacy, the worst serial murder.

I, the resident Kamewota of this thread, is a non-Nordic, Non-Japanese eccentric
foreigner living in the UK. Don't confuse me with the Nordics of this thread.
Yes Kame has ben likened to a kitten.

a young male cat. KyonKyon loves cats.

>>441 with an approach to intoxication like that, no wonder Japanese
would be suspicious and wary of foreigners. Who would want their
society to go corrupt?
>>438 -wota is a label for people who are obsessed with something
I think.(ota comes from otaku? correct me if I'm wrng please)
>>439 In Japan is it considered a sign to start a relationship with
someone, if you invite them to the dance floor? I was already with two of my friends,
a woman and a man, and these three were standing there watching with their drinks.
They looked like they wanted the dance,but were too shy, so I went over and pulled them
into our group. How would that be perceived in Japan? At the end of the night, we all
shook hands and went away alone.
A Singaporean man once asked me, upon seeing the Tango class at college, whether the partners
were singles.I explained to them that all participants are singles.
I was shocked when he said" I would never let my wife dance like that with another man"!!
I am trying understand what is acceptable in the East.

Pretty disturbing that they hate their bodies so much they have to do that to feel good about themselves.
At least that's what Jennifer Love Hewitt seems to do, as she stated she does it to feel good about that part of herself.
Vaguely reminds me of Bobby Neurotic...

Also, I hate how people keep using vagina when they mean vulva or mons pubis.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Poolside_03.jpg is not an image of a vagina.
The vagina is internal, and it makes as little sense calling your vulva your vagina,
as calling your scrotum or penis your urethra.

461 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/12(水) 23:50:33

465 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/13(木) 05:40:14
That is not relevant. Many people don't even say vagina, they just refer to it as if it were a dirty word.
Like "vajayjay" or "vagoo". The right words should be used for the right things. If you don't like vulva, then invent a different nickname for it.
Don't just use a close word for it instead, that is euphemism done severely wrong.
A leg is not a knee, the thigh is not the hamstring, your torso is not your lungs, and your head is not the cerebellum, no matter how much cooler the latter ones might sound.

yeah, I've managed to locate a decent Asian supermarket in my city.
I guess reading Japanese recipes will be a lot less frustrating from now on.
I went in, only planning to buy a few things for at most 10 bucks or so (most
importantly a pack of 味噌), but ended up blowing 60 Euros on all kinds
of sauces, candy, noodles, pastes, drinks, canned fish and what have you.

Nah, they sell that stuff in every normal grocery store around here,
albeit under a different name (Mikado).

cool, I wish I had something like that over here. I do have access
to a very small Japanese book shop that I've checked out today, but they
don't have much that would interest me. The only fields they're fairly
well-stocked in are fashion and gossip magazines (not interested),
European philosophy (can read that in European languages), dictionaries
(already have everything I need), and manga (nice, but I still have like
15 unread volumes sitting on my shelf).
But maybe it's at least cheaper to order stuff through them than
amazon/yesasia, I'll see about that when I order my next batch of books.

Ah, seems like the ban was finally lifted.. I've done it for the first time
in about a month. The last time I posted here is when admins lifted the ban.
As I said then, why did they start banning people just because one of us makes
a complain about the Democratic Party, the loopy Prime Minister? I don't want to be
banned that easily without making any mistake on my part. It's really frustrating.

As for Japan's current administration, I really am not happy with it.
If you asked around in Japan, most people would say NO to Hatoyama, the current prime minster,
who admitted in the 1 on 1 debate the other day that he was surely loopy. I'm sick of it.
The latest poll shows that the current downturn in the number of people who approve
Hatoyama administration is primarily due to his inability to make decisions, and I think there
are many more reasons why. I didn't vote for the Democratic Party, coz I knew things would never go
in the right direction. And I was right. He's getting loopier.
Luckily, we have an election this summer. We should make him pay.

I'm going to live in the USA for July, August and September, in New york, basing my living on New York Luthern Church.
It would be a fascinating time living in Christ and Christ living in me.
What do you think?

I would be living in a different place If I were you. Think this way,
there are churches in Japan as well and it is out of the question to live
there if you aren't a Christian, so do you want to do the same in Japan?

Anyhow, it might be a good experience. It's like visitors to Japan living
in a temple or a shrine.

I had been living basing my living on Church until 9 years ago.
But for 8 years after that, I was forced to live without church until March last year thou I had one more year till retirement.
So I quit working as a Miyazaki prefectural English teacher.
Miyazaki prefectore education committee had been forcing some teachers into hardship and had been killng them by suiciding.
And I was one of the victims being made unable to go to church on Sundays when I had to work for corresspondence system learnig senior high schooling.
So I quit and came to Tokyo on April 1st last year.
Since then I haven't missed a single Sunday church prayer service.
On Sundays I pray in an English Sunday worship service and Japanese Sunday service, and sometimes even evening English service.
Besides Sunday services, I attend one or two English Bible class.
Jesus is everything to me because He saved me when I was trying to suicide in dark dark dispar whe I was about 35 years of age , for which I am 60 years of age now.

It seems to be going pretty smoothly, but it's early days yet. A government
is usually chosen by the first party past a set number of locally elected
'seats'. This time, of course, nobody made it past that point. The Conservative
party won, technically, but didn't have a majority vote, so the Liberal Democrat
party joined up with them, bringing the numbers to a majority government. So even
though the Liberal Democrats came in third place, they're in a much, much stronger
position than the Labour party, who came second (and were ousted from power).
Personally, I voted Liberal Democrats, so even though my local council is still
Labour-run (most of North-East England is loyal to Labour... Tony Blair is from just
a few miles down the road), I'm pretty happy with the results. So far, anyway.
As for approval ratings, 64% of voters approve of the coalition. 87% Conservative
voters approve, and 77% LibDem voters approve. Labour voters, of course, have a
different opinion.

If Boris Johnson had been running as leader of the Conservative Party, I'd have voted
for them.

Other than the issues of moving a US base and a funds scandal, there was a recent
story on the BBC about Hatoyama...

514 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/19(水) 08:17:24
I was surprised to hear that Liberal Democratic Party is quite a socialist party, which is contrary to Liberal Democratic Party in Japan which is corrupted and is being broken down.

515 :イギリス人:2010/05/19(水) 08:27:29
I suppose there are quite a few LibDem policies which seem quite socialist,
and even though there are a few policies which were aimed at easing the burden
for poorer families, they're reasonably class-neutral.

It's the Labour party which is mainly seen as the most socialist, though,
having red as the party colour, being a member of Socialist International,
and trying to appear to support the common workers (and non-workers, for that

Oh, I meant to add that one of the main agreements the Conservatives had to
agree to before LibDem would join them, was to hold a referendum on reforming
the entire election system, to make it fairer. Neither Conservatives nor Labour
would agree to change it outright, but they both agreed to let us have a say in
whether it should change. Which it should.

516 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/19(水) 08:35:44

64 percent. I see. People's expectation is set high now.
What do you think about Euro? The labor party says the UK should
put some distance from it if I'm not mistaken.

Ah, his fashion sense. It's the worst. But the shirt he was wearing at the
barbecue looked good on him in a sense. The shirt made me think he's quite loopy.
You know, he can't even decide on colour. So he wanted green, red, yellow, purple
and blue. He doesn't even know we gave him the red card, though.

Personally, Ozawa is the one who's rotten. LDP is far beter than DPJ.
Don't tell me you think LDP is corrupted because several TV commentators says so.

Tony Blair was leader of the Labor party, which is seen as the most socialist, but he was just a neo-conservative in foreign policy.

That made news here in Japan. Even here it became clear and obvious last year
that it couldn't reflect voters opinions. Japan followed the English election system in order to establish what they say is
two party system like the Labor and the Conservative in your country.

He should be punished now of course. It's not reasonable if he gets away with it.
Be that as it may, Hatoyama bet us his prime minister position that he would

without any responsibility to fulfill? No, that's all his fault.

Ah, the Euro. People here are still unsure about that. Both Labour and
Conservatives are wishing to keep the Pound as the national currency,
but LibDems are generally more EU-oriented, so if they were the majority
government, there would have been a referendum on switching to the Euro.
They would try and convince us it's the right thing to do too. But at
this point in time, they're keeping very quiet about it. Probably because
of the current situation in the rest of the EU and with the Euro being so
weak right now.

Though the Labour Party is seen more as a socialist party because of its roots
and symbols, it's much more centre-left these days. Though... our former Home
Secretary (and later Justice Secretary), Jack Straw, was a member of the Communist

We've heard quite a bit about his wife too. About how she eats the sun every morning,
how she used to know Tom Cruise when he was incarnated as a Japanese in a past life,
and when her spirit took a trip to Venus on a UFO.

We haven't had the chance to vote on it yet, as the new government is still
settling in, but I'm pretty certain it'll change in favour of a Proportional
Representation system, rather than the First Past the Post system we have now.

Wish people would make videos like that for our prime ministers. Suppose
this is the closest thing we have...

As far as I know, it may be wise to see how the Euro going to be.
If I were from Germany, I'd get upset to hear the tax money was used for Greece,
no matter how complicated things were.

It's Hatoyama Miyuki you were talking about, right?
Now that the approval rate of his administration went down (come to think of it,
it's been keeping going down from the start; it never went up even once. And I'm sure it's not
hit the low now. Down, down, down. ), she's making herself unseen in public.
The columnist who described him as "loopy" was quite right. The word also goes for his wife.
And I feel irritated and frustrated when I hear the word fraternalism, which Hatoyama used to use a lot when he became PM.
Do you think you can trust a person who's so fickle what he says in the morning changes in the evening and that changes next day which changes a week later,
and in the end he doesn't remember what he says a month later?
Hatoyama said clearly he would quit if he wasn't able to convince his ministers, Okinawan people and America until the 31th of May.
And he's saying he's going to give a try after that? Don't make fun of us. Liar..

No, I don't think so. I have seen the scene many times when he's asked a

silence people. I don't trust in him any more than in Hatoyama.

Ah, sorry - you're right, it's Hatoyama Miyuki I meant. Often I go back

look like I was talking about Jack Straw's wife.

Wives of politicians here never really try to stand out. They might speak
a little during campaigns, but generally try not to draw attention to themselves.

their children Spanish names.

Hatoyama is the loopy king of tax evasion. The only reason he's not arrested

That's usually the case here in Japan. Hatoyama Miyuki is quite exceptional.
While we are on the subject, I've seen her appearing on TV variety shows several times, and the hosts unconditionally
treated her like a celeb or something. AH, I'm reminded that she also used "fraternalism" a lot.
That gets on my nerve.. Her husband tried to evade Tax and he's still pretending he didn't know
what was going on. I want to ask her if fraternalists don't have to pay taxes.

I haven't heard of the Daily Mail, but I wonder if this Nick's wife doesn't have English nationality
even after the marriage.

I guess basically no one is opposed to your opinion; it'd be an ideal world.
However, what the Democratic Party of Japan says is ridiculous. They decided to give households with
a child or children under 15 yo a monthly allowance of 13,000 according to the number of children they have,
but there's no assurance they can do that; there's not enough revenue to achieve the policy.
In fact, in most of the case, even parents who have children have to pay more tax than they get from the child benefit system,
and that means most people are made to pay more tax than before. That's quite silly.
In addition, they got past a law called "basic environmental protection" or something, but it's also
quite meaningless and it would crucify ordinary Japanese people. It says we should cut 25 percent of the gas emission, but
the loopy members of the party has never make clear how to do that. Probably they are thinking of buying "air" from other
countries, and in order to do that, they say they have to raise tax. They are mad.
I strongly suggest they quit this nonsense now.
Also, about the suicide issue, there's more the government should do.
Safety nets and mental support should do. I'm not sure Hatoyama really have an idea, though..

As you may know, the Hatoyama administration has messed it all up and so I doubt they
can solve the issue smoothly. According to the new report, he decided to fill the sea with mud,
but most people in the right mind would say that he surely broke the promise that he would never
do that. He just wanted to make his plan look feasible, but I'm sure it'll fail.

England barely(narrowly?) won the world cup by possible biased

I don't know whether England deserved the world champion.
I don't have many knowledage about the world cup 1966.

Korea in 2002 is still new to me and Italy won world cup by fraud
and Spain seems to have gone up to final games by false judges
in their world cup.
So I become suspicios of the matches in England too.

As for England national team now, it's not too good but you
have more chance than before, do you?
Rooney is possibly world top three player and at his best time,
MF plyaers are very uncomprably powerful.

Do you know Boris Johnson is turkish descent?
ofcourse he is tremendously immersed with English blood.
He marries half-Indian woman, doesn't he?

Some british white nationalists argued how he looked non-white on the web,
citing his asian characteristics, this and that.
That was funny. They must have not liked his policy and his marriage.
He looks quite aryan and looks typical of English elite.

I had been forced not to go to church every Sunday for 8 years by Miyazaki Prefecture education committee because they forced me, knowing that I am a Christian, not to go to church on Sundays
by keeping me within correspondence system learning senior high school for 8 years and intending to keep me one more year until I got to the retirement age.
I quit working there one year before my retirement age,
and since then I haven't missed even one day going to church on Sunday.
Even more, I go to church three days in one week, going to Sunday service and Thursday and Friday Bible study classes.
I am completely content living my life basing on Church.
Is going to church the greatest pleasure to you?

Have you guys ever played non-Japanese video games?
I didn't used to play even a single one of them, but for some reason
Dragon Age appealed to me, and so I just get a start on it.
I'm not used to the formats, I mean, when conversation scenes between the main character and subs appear,
I have to make a choice of how to respond. And that makes me think sometimes - like you can kill ordinary
persons without mercy - that wouldn't happen in Japanese video games like Dragon Quest.
And though I can use AI to make my allies act on my wish, but I find it a little tough to make such settings.
It's complicated. But over all, Dragon Age is quite interesting, even though I sometimes have trouble understanding
what's going on due to the language. It's not for learners, of course. I often come across English expressions that are
hard to get, and I need to get used to their pronunciations and accents.

587 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/28(金) 00:25:18
yep. I'm sick of Japanese RPG, especially used animation-like character.
I think japanese RPG haven't improved even a bit for decades.

I haven't played "洋ゲー" since last january.
"洋ゲー"stand for the game made in somewhere outside of Japan in English.
pronunciation of this word is "you ge-"

anyway, if you like Dragon Age, I strongly recommend you The Witcher.
in combat, I often heard The Witcher is inferior to Dragon Age.
But, The story line of The Witcher is awesome. it is grim and ruthless.

As you mentiond Dragon Age, The expression of The Witcher is also not suitable for lerneres of English.
I often stumbled over trying to understand what they said.
every time I stuck, I referred to online dictionary.

even though if you are not fluent in English, many troubles and hardships will be waiting for you,
The Witcher is worth playing.

You're quite knowledgable. The Witcher, ok, I'll check afterwards.

You were using an online dictionary while playing the game?
Wow, that must have been a pain. As for me, I can't be bothered to do so.
Let's say there's this word I encountered just now which I wasn't sure exactly what's the meaning of -
it's cloister. Let me see... And I'm just done checking. Hmm, I'd say there's no chance for me to actually
use it. lol
But the idea of the word is quite simple.. Anyhow, if I want to understand the story of the game better, I should
think of looking up some unknown words like this. Mind you, it'll take lots of time doing that.. What should I do?
If there were a word list or something that's specifically meant for people like me to refer to, it'd be wonderful, though.

Nope, I'm playing it on the computer. I didn't compare it with the PS3 or Xbox version, but there was no choice, I mean,
I don't have those consoles. So I happened to choose the best. lol
Having said that, I'm not so used to how to move my cute elf girl on the keyboard, though.

594 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/28(金) 12:59:13
These kinds of games use a lot of words that you wouldn't hear every day. It's good enough just to be able to remember the meaning. You probably wouldn't use them anywhere except for writing a book, so don't worry too much!

Johnson's ancestry is pretty well known now, thanks to a BBC show which takes
well-known personalities and helps them trace their family tree. His great
grandfather was an Interior Minister in the Ottoman Empire, before being assassinated
during the Turkish War of Independence. He is also directly descended from King George
II, though he was German and only became king because his (also German) father reigned
here before him, being the closest Protestant relative to Queen Anne, once she died.
As you say, though, he's very stereotypical as a member of the English upper-class, but
is never condescending or patronising, and is able to laugh at himself when he does
something stupid. Which is quite often.

In my youth, before choosing the path I took, it was my ambition to eventually work for
the company that made Dragon Age - A company called BioWare, founded by two medical doctors
in Canada. They're generally pretty polished, with good stories. The games, I mean, not
the doctors.

To be honest, I don't really know that much about what happened, or about football in
general. It's not really my thing, but we hear so much about it on television and the radio.
Rooney's pretty much the driving force in England's hopes of a win this year, you've

596 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/29(土) 00:14:39
So you are (were?) a fan of video games, right? I think I understand why you were interested in BioWare,
When I saw Dragon Age game play videos on Niconico and got interested, I read up on the game on the Internet
and found out that BioWare had been a good developer for long, but the article I read didn't say anything about
two doctors at all. That's really interesting, because there seems no such element at all. Rather, it's the exact opposite. lol
Doctors who have knowledge on computer programming sound quite intriguing.
Just out of curiosity, I guess you completed Dragon Age already. Am I wrong? lol

To be precise, you're wrong. It's "Noriaki is da REAL," not "Noriaki da King."

I understand why you remember the phrase wrong, cause any king around the world
in human history would/woud've knelt down before his presense.
Lots of FAKE rappers have been around but no one except Noriaki is da REAL thing.
He's got a story to tell in his rap. And don't forget his sperb rapping skill.

50 cent lost confidence when he listened to Noriaki's rap and he almost
decided to throw away his career as a rapper but Noriai, being so nice,
encourged him to be confident and told him some tips to be a better rapper.

If you are looking for an RPG that is good for learning English,
you should check out The Elder Scrolls. I've become fluent in English
almost exclusively by way and for the purpose of playing the third part
of that series, Morrowind. That was quite some time ago, and my English
back then was not as good as yours is now.
The fourth installment (TES4: Oblivion) came out a few years ago. I haven't played it though,
mainly because I've become somewhat disinterested in computer games in the meantime.
But I bet if they had made a 完全日本語版 of it, with all the spoken dialog
re-enacted by Japanese voice actors, I would've played the shit out of it
and would be fluent in Japanese by now.

Right now, I play a session of DraculaX: 月下の夜想曲 every now and then.
It's a very good game, and I missed out on it back when it was released.
But it doesn't have a lot of dialog, the only new words I remember
learning from it being コウモリ and 十字架.

Social Democratic Party leader Fukushima is dismissed as Minister of State for
Consumer Affairs and Food Safety, Social Affairs by Prime Minister Hatoyama.
I think it's natural and she is just a burden on the Hatoyama Administration.
However, she doesn't realize that, and began critisizing him for dismissing her.
I wonder if she is just a super loopy too.

604 :埋地 ◆eMTYZaOJDw :2010/05/29(土) 18:42:45

605 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/30(日) 02:21:54
I know she's laying the ground work for the next election this summer.
All she's doing now is aimed for getting as much public attention as she can.
As you probably know, she's going to run for the election. She wants to keep seated in the Diet.
That explains why she's making commotions like that. Be that as it may, however, I don't think
"loopy" doesn't apply to her deed.
Let me note this in the first place. I'd never vote for SDP coz the idea the small party has concerning the national security is quite
ridiculous, considering the situation Japan is in now - we are faced with China, North Korea, and Russia. We need to be properly armed
if we don't want to be attacked and bombed.
That said, Fukushima has been saying she wanted to remove the bases from Okinawa all along, so in a sense she tried to do what she promised.
I commend her ONLY in this respect. Again, I'm against her ideas, such as "even when a police man is faced with a cruel murderer
he should not trigger a gun, he may be killed, but it's ok." See how stupid she is?
Ok, that's that. Let's get back to the point.
Hatoyama is the one who won the title of the loopy king of Tax evasion.
At first he encouraged Okinawan people who are opposed to having American bases in Okinawa and he kept saying he had great plans in mind,
and he changed his opinion? Nah, that's not understandable. He's loopy.
I don't trust him at all.

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly, but No, it's not always so, quate,
"The term of a member of the House of Councilors is six years and half of the members are elected every three years"
So Fukushima is accused of her deed by those who are suspicious she's barking because she has to contest a seat this summer.
And I think the criticise is to the point. Should she not run for the election, she wouldn't have gone this far.

Arnold, the character name in the drama is dead. So sad.

The tiny black man in the drama, "Different stroke."

It was aired with different title here in Japan.

It was a story where white family adopted Black brothers. One of them
is Arnold, the small guy. Newspaper says he didn't grow up physically because
of a kidney diease he suffered as a child. I love the white girl in the
family called Kimbrly. Her boobs was very appealing for me as a junior high student back then.

I don't think HATOYAMA can govern this country from now on, because he easily changes his past comments and don't keep his words.
The Prime Minister must originally be responsible for everything he has done and otherwise he should regisin his current position immediately.

As I'm sure you may know, the latest approval rates are down, 17 percent to 19 percent,
while disapproval rates are about 70 on average. In a nutshell, Hatoyama administration is

According to the 20 percent core base theory, about 20 percent of the Japanese people are the voters base for Democratic Party,
so even some of them started to quit supporting Hatoyama. That means a lot to the rest of us.

Are you kidding? It's only 17 percent at best. 70 percent is against Hatoyama.
His party will lose the next election. That's for sure.
The more important thing is, LDP can win trust from voters.
If LDP doesn't win, then Ozawa will try to form a new coalition government.
That would be the worst ending. He'll do anything he likes that would harm most Japanese people.

I'm serious. 17 percent is still so high.
Around 10 percent is normal and under 5 percent is even better, because I'm concerend that DP may use every unfair measure they can take in oreder to win the election.
You may think I'm too worried, but they have sticky and strong weapons such as the mass media, the partial root of evil spreading through this country.
HATOYAMA and OZAWA is just a cancer of Japan. We must protect this wonderful country from being ruined.


624 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/31(月) 18:14:22
I agree with you mostly, and according to the niconico poll, it's only 5 percent approval.
So those who use the Internet to read news are sharply against Hatoyama.
Older generations, mainly in their 60 or higher, still use legacy media to retrieve information
and no wonder some of them still don't realize Democratic Party is injustice. What we can do for now
is let them know the truth. They support DP out of their innocent ignorance.

625 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/31(月) 19:09:58

626 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/31(月) 19:19:55
I think so, too.
People who are "DANKAI" or more aged generations seem unlikely to think about Jananese future seriously,
and what is worse, almost all of them like to watch NHK and strongly believe the TV programs or information provided by it is almost true.
It's hard to make the people persisting in one belief realize that they should change their thoughts.
What younger generations can do is go to the polls and choose the statemen/women truely hoping to change this country better.

627 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/05/31(月) 19:42:33
It's conducted when you are on Niconico, and you are suddenly linked to a questionnaire video,
then you are asked to answer all questions within 200 seconds,
one person can vote only once. How many people answer? It's about 100,000.
The admins break down data into each category - like approval rates in each generation.
As for me, I happened to take part in the poll once.
I'd say it's safe to say it's the voice of the Internet users.
Though, of course, that doesn't mean all the Japanese people.

I'll definitely go vote for LDP this summer. Make Hatoyama know he should get out!

Hey, I heard that another king of tax evation appeared in England.
I'm concerned the british government is also loopy. You know, after it came to light
Hatoyama tried to evade tax, he started to lose his trust completely and
just within a window of 8 months the approval rate reached 17 percent.

632 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/01(火) 10:16:27

They are a group of people that don't like the Obama administration.
I personally don't like them very much though; they're the same people that said "love it or leave it" when George Bush was in office.

They think that the United Stats is going to become some Socialistic half-Communist tyrannic empire that wants to enslave their children and kill old people
(they actually thought the Health Care bill included killing old people).
The same people also pulled their kids out of school when a speech that Mr. Obama made for the nation's students was supposed to be shown because they thought it would be propaganda.

Last I heard, Tea Party has become sort of influential.

Speaking of games, I'm playing Dragon Age as I said before, and it
seems hard to get the hang of it. I haven't acquired coercion skill
and so failed to convince NPCs several times. How pathetic.

Yea, a lot of candidates for State elections are trying to get their votes.
That's a good thing for the Democrats, though, because when a party splits only half of the votes count against the other major party.

I'm more of a FPS guy but don't give up :D

In this globalized world we're living in, being monolingual makes you isolated both culturally and politically.
Even if you're not traveling anywhere you still have plenty of opportunity to use the language you've learned.
You can experience media in its original language (I always try to do that), communicate with people from different countries through the internet and get a different perspectives on global events by reading news from other countries.
Ethnocentricity was cool 200-300 years ago during the colonial age.

Have you ever seen this video?

The video is about 15 years old, but I think Ozawa has been no different than he used to be 15 years ago.
What he is doing is pulling strings behind the scene. It's disgusting.
Besides, Ishibashi Takaaki of Tunnels was quite witty and sarcastic against Ozawa at that time.
Hope Takaaki will do the same again now.

What do you think of his magic, using an i-pad.
I'm impressed with his magic but it seems like quite a lot of people commented there
calling hime fake or anything. Probably people there are apple products haters
and couldn't help but being rude to him, too.

Hatoyama talks about the reasons of his resignation without any reflection, which meks me irristibally angry.
How do the Japanese think about his stupid attitudes and comments in the coverage?
Can we really leave Janapese future to the fool party like this?
The size of Hatoyama's brain must be the same as that of pigeons.
He is definately the worst Prime Minister and just a shame of Japan.

658 :Native Speaker :3:2010/06/02(水) 17:17:22
Here's a funny story.
One day on 4chan's '/jp/ - Otaku Culture' board somebody asked for a translation to a panel in a hentai manga.
It meant 'The pleasure of being cummed inside' but everybody began to argue about whether it'd be better to just translate it as "I love to be cummed in" ,ect
They then continued to argue about whether it even mattered if you actually translate hentai or just put text into the boxes because the story isn't really the point.

Now on /jp/ if you ask them to translate anything from Japanese to English the first reply will always be: My Japanese is a like shaky... but I think it has something to do with pleasure, and cumming.
You can even try it yourself.

About Hatoyama's resignation.
I really think now it's time to redo the Restoration.
Because, in my view, all political parties are hopeless in Japan today.
I wonder who is the competent politician? I don't know at all.

661 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/03(木) 05:18:54
What fact do I have to confirm?
I don't have any confidence in her. She's unrealistic.

I'm not completely sure if what you meant by the Restoration was, like, all the current political parties
should be disbanded once and then they should form new parties only if their basic policies and thoughts are shared.
But if that's the case, yeah, I agree with you totally.
We shouldn't support Democratic Party in order to achieve this. If DP has enough seats in the Diet, then
they'll say, " voters gave us a chance to do anything we like". That'd be the worst.
The least we could do to avoid such situation is to vote against Democratic Party and make them understand
what we expect politics to be. That's why I'm on your side.

Now to answer your question, able politicians...yeah...I think that depends on personal lookouts on life,
you know, there might be a person who still believes Hatoyama is a good politician, but
in my opinion, Ishiba shigeru deserves your attention, if you are the type of person who
felt irritated at the news that mouth-and-foot disease is spreading in Miyazaki prefecture or that Hatoyama
was responsible for causing trouble in getting rid of the dangerousness of Futenma Camp.
He knows what he's doing. He's trustworthy. Anyway, I think it's best for you to see Niconico videos in the political section.

Indeed, Sigreru Ishiba may be trustworthy. I do think his speaking is always simple and easy to people.
But, to my surprise, he does believes in UFO. I think he is too obedient and doesn't doubt if UFO really
exists or not. At the point, I can't have high opinion about him.
Because, I don't believe in the occult at all. If you say "UFO really exists!", let me see the testimony.
That are two testimonies; a real UFO and aliens are in.
I wonder if occult freaks can show anti-occult freaks including me that.

His way of explaining things is simple but quite logical, and about UFO,
I did see a video on YT when he mentioned it. In my opinion, he wasn't too
serious about it coz he seemed just to have fun talking about UFO. Let me point
out this: He's realistic when it comes to the security issue.
I'm sure you know about that, though..

Beside that, have you heard that Hatoyama actually gave his companions lots of money?
He said he didn't do that... Liar..

673 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/05(土) 10:59:41
I think Japanese names shouldn't be romanized.
Nobody who doesn't speak Japanese can remember those convolutions of
syllables anyway.
Instead, people should use a translation of the meaning of the characters
that make up their name. Like, someone named 真田 wouldn't be called
"Sanada" abroad, but instead "Truefield."
How cool is that? I wouldn't mind being called Mr. Truefield.
Much better than people calling you Sadanada or Salada, isn't it?

I'm not sure you heard about this, but let me take it as an example; Sengoku tried
to deregulate the doctor lisence, he said Japan was going to let people practice medicine
without being licensed in Japan.. And I remember he has some kind of connection with
Korean doctors, which suggest that he plans to let Korean plastic surgeons earn huge money.
Who can be sure there'll be no trouble with such doctors? He's too shallow..

The least I could say is that things have been worse than they used to be after Democratic Party
took over Japan.They call themselved Democratic, but what they did for the past 9 months made our lives
worse. Come to think of it, Kan is also responsible for that since he was a member of the Hatoyama administaration,
but he became Prime Minister. What was that?
He sure can be a good performer and entertainer, but he isn't the appropriate kind of person who deserves to be manage
a state. Sadlly, some Japanese people love to make out a performer to be a good politician (and get disappointed after
he or she isn't far from it)..

Anyway, what we should do now is stop DPJ from doing anything as they like.
In order to do so, we should vote against the party. I'll probably vete for LDP or
Tachiagare Nihon or Nihonsousin, I'm still not decided on where to vote for, but
one thing is for sure; I'll never ever support DPJ.

695 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/05(土) 20:25:31

696 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/05(土) 20:51:55
In my opinion, Japanese politics won't change whoever the prime minister is.
Anyway, it's not prime minister but the U.S. that moves Japan.

The LDP's new plan looks like combining a consumption tax hike (from the current 5% to 10%) with a corporate tax cut.
Keidanren (Japan Business Federation) has been asking for this for years, and the LDP seems ready for it now.
It's the voters that are likely to get stuck in a loop, after all...

707 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/06(日) 19:23:59
I wouldn't trust in him if I were you.
He also has what's called political money problem, and members of DPJ
says that they don't like to change the schedule of the election because
if Kan should have discussions with parties in no power, he'll make grave
mistakes such as letting slip that he doesn't have any plan to solve problems
like how to move the Okinawa base camp. That should be done by August as promised.
All I want to tell you is that things didn't changed even a bit when Hatoyama was
prime minister. Kan is a performer, not a practical person.

24 year old Japanese AV porn star Anri Suzuki is offering Chinese students
in Japan to have sex with her as an act of apology for Japan's atrocities
in China during WWII. Suzuki, who recently got her doctorate degree in history,
did her thesis on Japan's invasion of China in WWII. Grief-stricken by what
she has discovered, she is now offering her body willingly to Chinese students.

"We have to respect history and cannot obliterate it. I want to cure the
wounds of Chinese with my body, and I am practicing this by having sex with
Chinese students in Japan," she said. "I think it is psychological compensation to them.
Actually, Chinese students treat me more friendly and comfortably than Japanese."

I've got in love with Lelian. The promise I made here was finally fulfilled. lol
I had to ditch Alister before that... You can't be in love with two people at the same time?
Was there a way to accomplish that? Still, the conversations Zevran and I have make me
feel they brought us somewhere.. Can you cheat on Leliana without disturbing her?
I'd never like to break up with her, but it'd be nice to get Zevran's approval points as high as possible
because high approval points unlock "plot skills", strengthening your allies.

By the way, I heard that Leliana has a French accent. Is that true?
If it's true, does that have something to do with the fact that Bioware
is a Canadian developer?
Also, I don't know why, but I have almost no trouble listening to her.
I wonder if some people in Canada are like her. That is, those who speak
both French and English sound a little clearer (to me) than others?

I had battles with werewolfs and it turned out that they used different words,
for examble, "acquiesce". Yeah, I know I tried to remember the meaning of the word
somewhere before, like in a vocabulary book, but couldn't recall what it was at that time.
(I bothered to check online afterwards this time)
I'm sure my English will improve if I refer to the dictionary every time I come across words whose meanings are vague to me,
but honestly I can't bring myself to go that far. It'll take huge amount of time to do so.
Hmm, at any rate, I want to understand the story better.

I read online that Dragon Age was going to be made into anime next year.
Little is known about it, but I'm looking forward to it.

720 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/12(土) 01:19:45

721 :イギリス人:2010/06/12(土) 07:00:21
Because of your previous post, I went and bought Dragon Age. It wasn't
disappointing (though I hear the expansion isn't really impressive).
Leliana's accent is quite typical of a French speaker fluent in English.
I'm not sure if it's the locale that led them to choose her, though, as
the voice actress lives in the UK (though she is actually French). I suppose
as a voice actress, it's her job to try and convey the accent while still
being clear and delivering understandable speech to a mainly English-speaking
audience. Anyway, Leliana is a refugee from the neighbouring country of Orlais,
which is largely inspired by pre-Revolution France. Alistair is very whiny,
Morrigan is very cynical, but the banter between party members and Zevran and
Oghren is fantastic.

Mass Effect 1 and 2 were very good, and now they have 3 in development, along
with Dragon Age 2. Might have made a mess of this post... very tired.

722 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/12(土) 09:22:31
>Because of your previous post, I went and bought Dragon Age.
Hahaha, that's good to hear. It seems you've already got ahead of me, though.
I haven't met Oghren yet.
About Leliana's accent, I didn't know about the voice actress, but
it's interesting to know the background info.
If I'm not mistaken, expansions and DLCs are being in product for 2 years till 2011,
so Dragon Age 2 will be released after that.

By the way, I noticed a new function was added to some YT videos.
Just click on CC and machine subtitles appear on the bottom of the screen.
It's funny the machine can't seem to recognize sounds properly. The original
subs on the upside of the screen don't correspond with the machine subs.

Oh, I got interested in Mass Effect after starting to play Dragon Age.
It's FPS, right? I haven't played FPS so far. Guess I'm not good at it.
Still it's nice to only see Mass Effect gameplay videos. Hopefully, if there's someone
out there creating funnily narrated videos, I'll watch them. lol

What does he mean? He doesn't really like Japanese?

There are lot's of hurdles for international marriages: language, culture, religion, register...
You know, love is not an only factor for marriages.

726 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/12(土) 17:38:43
I would say, clumsy girls are so cute.
I'd love to go out with them but not for marriage.

Have you ever suffered from love sickness.
Love is something more powereful than you think so that you can get over such hurdles easily.

729 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/13(日) 00:46:32
I used to think that way when I was a kid.
The reality is often quite different than you think.

730 :725:2010/06/13(日) 02:01:31
My English teacher is married with a Japanese woman and they are also blessed with 2 kids.
He said, however, that one of their kids somethimes seems to feel awkward about going to school where all of the students are black hair and black eyes except him.
Having blond hair and blue eyes might make him feel like a lone in the cold in Japan and sheds light on his identity.

Let's get another data.
In the U.S, black orphans who were adopted by white family could become more sensitive about their identity as they grow up than those who were raised by the same-colored parents.

I couldn't agree with you more with respect of that love is powerful. But getting friends is one thing, and getting a spouse is completely another
because we need to consider all the aspects of constructing a family and make up our minds to fight against what the future brings.
It would be hard for couples who grew up in the same country, never mind those in different ones.

We should not easily conclude that love will sort out all the preblems in the world,
or we're going to nix someone's life and contribute to the higher rate of divorce.

You sound like a rude person but that' not your fault and I don't blame you.

It's Slim Shady in you that made you write such a harsh comment.
Slim shady is in all of us. Even a talented golfer like Tiger Woods flirted with
lots of women when he was considred to be a perfect role model.

That's not Tiger's fault, I'd say. It's Slim Shady in him that whispered to him and encouraged him to
flirt with many women. Slim Shady in him was responsible for turning his penis into a "Tiger."

I know you just woke up on the side of your bed. That's often the case when Slim Shady in you
show greater presence in you. That leads you to acting like a rude person.
So again, I don't blame you. After all, Slim Shady is in all of us.

759 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/14(月) 02:03:30

Slim Shady is a metaphor of dark side of each and every people.
Even renowned philanthropists have a dark vicious sides, which is in essence called Slim Shady in them.
As far as I remember, you said you don't like Koean dramas because actors acting style is
too direct and plots lack in subtle expressions compared to Japanese ones.

>>761 I am amazed that you remembered that. Yes I used to think that
way but then I found a couple of outstanding ones that changed my mind.

I don't agree with the dark side theory, we are not the moon you know.

Why don't you use Lotte breath fresheners, your breath will improve
and I will turn into an anime girl.

765 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/14(月) 04:00:00
You may or may not know this but Lotte is originally a Korean company although some Japanese
people don't even know that. Many 2channelers don't like Korea so Lotte breath
freshners aren't the best option for them.

I don't think I descriminate Korean but still, I prefer Japanese breath freshners than those
made by Lotte. Maybe I'm getting influenced by the idea of 2channelers.
Amazed by the fact that you know Lotte, anyway. Hope Kame doesn't have bad breath. Who knows?

Today is Japan's World Cup opener.
I don't think they could withstand a continued barrage by Cameroon so long but I hope at least they will give it all.

773 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/14(月) 15:06:00
My guess is Japan will lose all three games.

Cameroon 2-0 Japan
Denmark 2-0 Japan
Holland 3-0 Japan

774 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/14(月) 15:24:51
I'm 773 and I am Japanese but I can't imagine Japan's national team will win
any game against these teams. If Japan win Cameroon, Japan will gain a momentum and
can beat or tie with Denmark but in reality, Japan's national team even can't beat
Cameroon. It's sad but that's reality.

Even if Japan gains momentum, there's no chance of beating Holland.
The chance of beating Hokllnd is as slim as the chance of me sucking
a woman's nipples.

775 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/14(月) 16:32:15
I'm not sure if Japan can't score, but over all from an objective viewpoint, I agree with you.
Sadly but there's almost no ground I can imagine Japan will win those 3 opponents; their FIFA rankings
are above that of Japan and the national team didn't win a single game in the last 5 games, so
it'd be really surprising if we won. Mr Okada isn't a good supervisor. He doesn't seem to be tactical.
I wish they showed us their spirits, at least.

776 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 00:55:12
Well, your team has won, Glorious 日本.
I didn't expect that.

777 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 00:57:31
We won!
I didn't expect that, either.

778 :イギリス人:2010/06/15(火) 00:58:09
And everyone was being so pessimistic... that was pretty good.

779 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 01:36:30
Yes, we were.
In retrospect, we lost all the 3 games in the first round, and I remember
Japan lost to Australia, 1 point vs. 3 points, and the 3 points were lost during
the last 10 miniutes or so. I thought that might have happened again this time.
Luckily, the goalkeeper overdid himself. So it was surprising we won.
Having said that, I'm not sure we will go to the second round, however.
Even if Japan happened to win against Cameroon, the fact remains that Denmark and Holland
are both really competitive opponents and that we need really good luck in order to even draw.
Anyway, I hope the national team should forget about today's game and put their minds into
preparing for the next game vs. Holland. If we can draw...

780 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 01:50:40
It looked like in today's game, Japan had a motive to win
(..driven by strong motivation ) - but Cameroons was not,

Go ahead, if you have any. lol
I don't know if South African wine is famous nor they actually brew any.
Do they?

784 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 03:07:43
>>783 You don't even know that? They make trendy white wines.. red wine also..

It's not terribly famous though..

785 :イギリス人:2010/06/15(火) 03:09:53
South Africa has a very wide variety of wines. They're one of the major
wine-producing countries.


786 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 03:11:10

they must be featuring some..

"In a turgid affair in Bloemfontein, South Africa, Japan beat Cameroon, 1-0, on Monday."

(...a turgid affair?)

790 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 07:57:33
Thank you guys. It's a shame I didn't know that.
I'm not the kind of person who enjoys having a sip of wine. I try it sometimes but
to be totally truthful, I've never given any thought to where wine was produced. All I know
is that France and Napa valley are famous for wine.
I can't taste the difference. haha

I've never seen the adjective turgid so I just looked it up online,
and the online dictionary I referred to says the word means swollen.
but I don't know what a swollen affair means, probably some kind of
unexpected huge things? Anyway, there must be something sarcastic about
the sentence. It was meant to carry the meaning of "everyone didn't expect Japan to win,
and it must have been a fluke or something." That's right. I still don't expect
Japan to win against Holland. In my humble opinion there must be a wide gap between the two countries about their skills.

791 :イギリス人:2010/06/15(火) 08:33:45
Nothing shameful about it - I guess some people enjoy wine, some don't.
To me, most things with a significant alcohol content leaves a chemical
taste in my mouth which is really unpleasant, so I just keep away from
most things. Apparently New Zealand and Chile have some very good wines

Must admit I'm stuck on this one too. Have seen the expression printed
in newspapers, but never really gave it much thought. Can't really find
an alternate meaning to the word, either, other than 'swollen'. Perhaps
it means some kind of hype, or an exaggerated event, which is pretty much
what >>790 says. In any case, I doubt England has a chance of winning.
Green, England's goalkeeper, has received much negative press from newspapers
and fanatics alike, over his mistake in the England v USA game where it rolled
in the net from his hands. The manager's either going to give in and replace
him, or try to downplay the incident.

792 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 09:17:26
Thanks again. That reminds me that there's this Japanese saying -
I don't know exactly how it's translated into English, but the idea is,
To ask about what you don't know is a momentary shame, while not to know
about it is a life-long shame. Does that make sense?

Ah, I see. So I guessed right. lol
But I must admit that everyone was being really pessimistic. So I can't complain
about the article.
It may be tough to be sure of winning, but everyone knows that England is one of the teams
that are well-trained and prepared to win the world cup. At least, there's a good chance of
English going to semi final, isn't there?

793 :イギリス人:2010/06/15(火) 09:29:45
Better to ask than to never know, I guess. I'll try and remember that one,

Semi-final if they're lucky and play better. Though... it's Slovenia and
Algeria left in the group, so might not be that big a challenge. There
can always be surprises though. I'm interested to see how North Korea play
later today... in 1966, when the World Cup was held in England, they were
almost denied entry visas.

794 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 10:28:11
Indeed, it was a fabulous match. I was touched by their fever, too.


795 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 12:23:00
In my dictionary(it seems ..) "turgid" just means not only "swollen", but-
.. exaggeration, hyperbole, bigmouth..or grandiose..
-Maybe nyt a bit implied their anti-japan sentiment..

796 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 20:18:59
could you tell me what the saying is in Japanese?

797 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/15(火) 23:08:21
I'm not sure if they just meant "exaggerated" as in "drawn-out" or long. Was it a long game?
It's just a tabloid rag being a tabloid rag, it seems.

798 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/16(水) 04:48:16
I'm not >>792 but the saying he/she meant to say is:


this is a proverb so the style is a little different from that of
contemporary Japanese. You can add こと after 聞くand 聞かぬ for you
to understan easier. Plus, ぬ as in 聞かぬ is old grammar style used to
mean "neative" form. So 聞かぬ=聞かない(not to ask)

799 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/16(水) 05:53:13
How do you say "据え膳喰わぬは一生の恥" in English?

Though, I cannot agree with intent or meaning of this proverb.

I know next to nothing about those 2 teams. Sounds like they are really
competitive, hmm.
Ah, North Korea... I didn't watch, but they got 1 point from Brazil, that
was good probably. Speaking of NK, the news says that the country broadcast
the game without authorization? Usually, TV stations pay huge money to get
a permission to do so. I'm not sure FIFA will take any action, though.

Thank you for the cooperation.
That's exactly what I tried to translate.

My shameful moment again. lol
I haven't heard of that expression.
Care to put the idea into English?
If there's a similar expression in English, probably you'll get across
to English speakers, like "ah, we say the same thing in English like this..."

By the way, it's muggy today, isn't it? The hydrometer in my room indicates
it's nearly 65 percent humidity in my place now. I don't like it.

803 :イギリス人:2010/06/16(水) 19:41:17
There was a rumour that North Korea were pirating the signals from the South,
but instead, the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union had worked out a deal with
North Korea (along with six other developing countries) to allow them to broadcast
the games.

It's one of our warmer days today, at 20ºC. It seems to only be warm on alternating
weeks, for some reason, as last week was quite cold and wet, but the week before
was warm. Humidity is 54%, which isn't so bad.

Oh, does that mean NK has been officially and legitimately broadcasting the world cup games?
I didn't expect that. Like you said, I thought they have been pirating the signals from the South.
As far as I know, the funny-faced dictator LOVES soccer very much, so
he'd have done anything if the deal had fallen apart. lol

The same thing happened here in Japan, I mean weather.
It dramatically changed on a daily basis this spring. Snowy days and warmy days. I couldn't
believe it snowed in April.

That seems difficult. I don't get it...

811 :イギリス人:2010/06/17(木) 06:15:04
As far as I know, it's completely legitimate. Had no idea Jong-Il was
a football fanatic, though... but I suppose it makes sense, as this is
one of the extremely few events we see North Koreans participating in
overseas. Wonder if the players ever think of defecting.

We had our coldest winter in the past 30 years, but it only went on until
March, I think. Our coldest days were around -30ºC, and the constant
freeze-thaw cycle really messed up and damaged the roads. In the last national
budget, the chancellor put £100m (\13.5b) aside solely for pothole repairs.
And some of the roads were covered in sheet ice, as councils had run out of
road salt. Some people literally crawled across roads on their hands and knees.
But now it's about the perfect temperature.

812 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/17(木) 06:37:39
I see. The reason I thought NK was bugging the signal was because I read
that South Korea said it wouldn't allow NK to broadcast the games as punishment
for attacking their army ship in March.
Hmm, I'm not sure about defecting, but to my knowledge, it's said that those North Korean representatives
who didn't live up to Kim John Ill's expectation were brought to a cave, where they
were forced to work, excavating something. I don't know how true it was.

-30ºC!? That was horribly freezing. Thought the global warming had started affecting our lives, but
there's someting wrong..

England are playing tonight in a match against Algeria. The expectation
is that England's goalkeeper will be replaced due to his performance in
the first match. It's kind of sad how much the public's view on someone
can go down with a mistake that lasted only a few seconds. And the match
didn't even end in a loss. But football's not really my thing, so I guess
fanatics view things differently.

It's easy for people to become hyped up during world sporting events, I
think. Almost everyone wishes to see their country do well. As well
as that, if a player stands out in the first game, then people will
take more notice of them and build up expectations on them.

England national team in this WC event has been said to be a great team.
In every World cup, England is expected to move on to best 8 or further
bur especially in this world cup, the expectations are higher.

Some say current England natinal team deserves winning World Cup for the first time in
40? or so years. It was bad Becham got injured before WC but thanks to Rooney and other players,
England national team still gets high reputation. The only problem is a goalkeeper.
I've read somewhere in Japanese media that one and only Achilles heel of England is Goalie.

The media's report is before WC started so when I heard the news that the goalie made a big
mistake in the game against U.S, I was like, "Oh, the report was very accurate."
Goalie is the last fort in the game of football and plays a very important role.

I guess England's football fans know the goalies is the only week point in
England' national team so I think that's why they make a big fuss about
England's goalie, who should be a goalie among three candidates. They know
they have a bigger chance to win the WC this year.

Many media here reports Spain has the biggest chance to win WC, but England can
win it among other candidates such as Argentina, Brazil...

I had no idea that expectations in other countries were that high. The
current favourites to win are Germany, I think, though that may have
slipped now that Serbia beat them. Spain have lost their first game, and
Argentina have won both, so it'll be interesting to see if losing make Spain
more determined, or if it's ruined their morale.

Apparently the goalkeeper hadn't been very good even in football training
these past few days, so it looks as if Capello will exchange Green for
James, a more experienced goalkeeper.

It'll be interesting to see how Japan do against Netherlands tomorrow,
as both teams have a win apiece.

He certainly made the front page of most newspapers here the following
day. He may have been a bit depressed, too, knowing that he would never
be as cool as Cool Tak.

They were kind of praising Japan's soccer game today- such as...:

Holland aren't looking so wonderful right now. The Japanese are defending well.

Holland 71% possession - but not doing a lot. The game feels more even than that.

The Dutch are looking a tiny bit rattled. Not that they're not capable of scoring again.

Good work from the Japan keeper.

they have looked good tonight.. no shame in this performance

damn...thought japan was gonna nick an equlizer.. still.. a good showing

Full time. Can't complain about the result, but it could have been a draw so very easily.

In that case, they're probably more impressed with Japan's performance
than with England's. Yesterday, England's own fans booed them as they
were leaving the pitch after drawing 0:0 with Algeria. Now the media
are making a fuss over Rooney's sarcastic remark, "Nice to see your home
fans boo you. That's what loyal support is".

879 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/20(日) 06:36:52
What is the difference from England ?

Japan lost yesterday. But I do not feel inclined to boo.
Probably mass media will not depreciate a Japanese player, either.
Doesn't mass media praise good fight rather?
And mass media will move subject to the following Denmark game.
What is the difference from England ?
Is it because there is recognition that Japan is weak, after all?

880 :イギリス人:2010/06/20(日) 07:09:27
I really have no idea why people had such a negative reaction. After
looking through a couple message boards, it seems that people feel that the
players they support owe them an exciting game, or a good match. People
feel let down, that the apparent sacrifices they made to be able to
travel to South Africa and watch the game were wasted. The media had
made Rooney look like the bad guy, so he has apologised for his comment

I think it was selfish of the spectators to do so, as what motivation
do the players have to play well, now that their fans appear to be
against them? If England has no fighting spirit next game, the fans
only have themselves to blame.

Was sat in a bar earlier, having lunch, and the screen was on (you can't
get away from the football these days), so caught the first half of the
Japan vs. Holland match. Japan definitely put up a good fight.

below the par level. Japan is fairly weak. All the teams except for Japan
are really strong. Japan actually lost. That explains very well how weak Japan is.

In my impression, the Dutches felt unexpected pressure from Japan..
while.. at first they were belittling them ..
Maybe because members of Japan team were spiritually quite unified?..
...that might be unusual for Dutches, and they couldn't perform so well

Japan only need a draw v Denmark. They are capable of doing that and could score one or two past Denmark's creaky defence..."

Can anyone make sense of this gibberish from the BBC website?

<<Japan came into the match off the back of their first World Cup win on foreign soil after beating Cameroon 1-0 on Monday.

And the afterglow of that historic achievement was evident in the admirable tactical nous they executed in the first half.

How does a victory generate tactical nous by glowing? >>

'C' said:
"It probably makes sense in Japanese"

"In plain English, the victory over Cameroon gave them the confidence to successfully
stifle the Netherlands in the 1st half."..

The BBC Articles is this;

..Japan came into the match off the back of their first World Cup win on foreign soil after beating Cameroon
1-0 on Monday.

And the afterglow of that historic achievement was evident in
the admirable tactical nous they executed in the first half as
they stifled the Netherlands' search for fluid creativity with
regimental efficiency in front of a near-full Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The Dutch, who are now unbeaten in 21 matches, started like a
team full of quiet confidence as they kept possession well and
used the width of Dirk Kuyt on the right and Rafael van der Vaart on the left.

Inter Milan midfielder Sneijder had the first clear chance but,
on this occasion, could not keep his long-range shot, from a
free-kick, down - a common sight in South Africa as players
struggle to tame the much-criticised Jabulani ball.

When they did break up the Netherlands' passing, Grenoble midfielder
Daisuke Matsui looked bright for Japan - instigating an incisive
move that eventually resulted in Yuto Nagatomo hitting a stinging
shot just wide.

The Asian side slowly began to frustrate the Dutch, who struggled
to bring striker Robin van Persie into the game and lacked a killer pass.

And by the end of the first half Japan had relative control, with towering Brazilian-born

That's impossible.
According to the TV media all around the world, Japan's games were boring.
Compared to that, Korea is considered really good. They were exciting,
and people expect Korea to step up to the second stage.

But the Netherlands - who have never won the World Cup, despite
a rich pedigree of world-class footballers - took the second
half by the scruff of the neck, with Van Persie breaking free
on a couple of occasions.

After a period of concerted pressure as the ball ricocheted
around the box in the 52nd minute, the Arsenal striker managed
to nudge it into the path of Sneijder.

Loitering just outside the penalty area, the Inter Milan star
lashed a powerful right-foot shot towards goal that keeper
Eiji Kawashima could only deflect into the net when he was well
placed to make an effective save.

That moment liberated both teams and no longer could containment
tactics be the limit of Japan's ambitions.

They responded in kind, Van Persie finding himself hooking a
dangerous cross from substitute Shunsuke Nakamura over his own
crossbar from within the six-yard box.

Hamburg's Eljero Elia came on as a substitute for Van der Vaart
and nearly recreated the impression he had from the bench in
the Netherlands' first match, cleverly releasing Ibrahim Allelay
for a one on one, although his fellow substitute could not add
a second with seven minutes remaining as Kawashima smothered his attempt.

Japan had the best chance to level the score one minute from time but unmarked
substitute Shinji Okazaki fired over from 10 yards...

Seconds later, referee Hector Baldassi waved away penalty claims
as Yuto Nagatomo went down under a challenge from Manchester
City midfielder Nigel de Jong and the Dutch clung on to achieve
maximum points from their opening two fixtures.

Cameroon play Denmark at 1930 BST in the fourth group E match.

Korea beat Japan in the pre-opening match, 2 - 0.
Everyone says Korea is far better than Japan.

905 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/20(日) 11:45:42
(another comment:)

Whilst Holland beat Denmark in their opening game, Japan triumphed,
albeit narrowly, over Cameroon and the Dutch boss added:
“They have progressed a lot. They have been together for a long
time and have played lots of matches.

"They have been looking for some time to find a style of play
which they didn't have in qualifying. But they appear to have
found that style. I have a lot of respect for the Japan coach
and his team and we will not be under-estimating them."

The 'ABE' movement is more prominent in Scotland and Wales - its supporters
support 'Anyone But England', which has led to some allegations of racism due
to the promotion of the brand.

It's a shame about HMV, though I guess since it's a British chain, they don't
feel the need to try and revive it, as a nationally-founded chain might. Anyway,
I believe HMV Japan is operated in name only, and is owned by a different group
- DSM. Over here, HMV Group runs both the UK's largest music/video chain, as well
as the largest bookstore chain (Waterstones).

What's this scandal?
Is that serious?
Why aren't Japanese media reporting this?


According to the Taiwanese news, Kan Naoto cheated on his wife with a Korean hostess
and have a 2 year-old infant live in Korea now.
If this is true, what's this ugly Prime Minister? He should make a comment on this.

Because He's been politically, SIDELINED and SIDELINED and SIDELINED .. number of times for many years
due to the myriad of issues mainly by his gealous opponents..until today,

He lost his prime time that's why,..to become a head of state..In my op.

I don't trust Kan at all. He shouldn't hide Hatoyama and Ozawa from the public.
If he did, I would think differently.

927 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2010/06/21(月) 14:39:38
I thought Kan has been sidelined by Hatoyama himself in mid '90s..
It was dark memory.
(-That's why he looked so embarrassed and depressed
just one night before he got elected the Democratic party leader and PM..)

That's nothing to do with this suspicion of him getting trapped in honey trap.
He wouldn't do politics for Japan. Instead he'd do anything to protect his name
that's not for the rest of us. DPJ can't be trusted.

Plus I'm not sure whether to trust this source, but I remember Kan is also suspected of bribery.
He has pursed his lips concerning this grave issue. Clean Politics? Don't make me laugh.
Kan is no different than Hatoyama the loopy king of tax evasion.

North Korea lost and it was comfortable.
Portugal was great. Cristiano Ronaldo seemed to be a misfire.
The complete defeat of North Korea resembled
the complete defeat of Hanshin the other day.
I also want Japan not to be defeated in Denmark.
I wish the team of Japan does not become the contents of a game
which are said in the tragedy of South Africa.

941 :イギリス人:2010/06/22(火) 08:13:07
Apparently some of the North Korean 'supporters' were hand picked by the
government in order to travel to the games and support their country. The
rest of the supporters are actually just Chinese, having bought tickets
through a seller given authorisation by North Korea in order to make it
look like they were giving people the freedom to travel.

Those fangirls of Korean guys are really happy about the fact that Korea's
national soccer team made their way to second round. They say Korea deserves
to win the world cup because they are hot, smart, attractive. Yeah, they are
quite right. Korean guys are surely so. Korean guys popularity will increase
day by day thanks to them.
I'm sure of it.

Nishikori can beat Nadal if he's in a good condition. His potential as
a tennis player is admired even by top tennis players such as Nadal and フェデラー.
Some of them even say Nishikori will win on of the 4 major titles (Wimbledon, French Open,
Australian Open, US Open) in the foreseeable future.

One of my favorite things to do when I watch Wimbledon matches is to watch
ball girls' boobs and bare thighs. But don't blame me for that. It's Slim Shady in me that
makes my attentions drawn to the girls' thighs and boobs.
And you can somtimes see some female players' nipples perked up.
That's another thing I enjoy to see.

In my opinion, Ptrick is one of the sexiest male tennis players. He's already
retired but I remeber when he changed his tennis shirts because of sweat on the court between sets during a match,
the spectators, especially women wowed to see his naked upper body.

The good thing to air a game to enjoy win-and-in scenario in the wee hours is that should they win the game, there will be less guys going out to make a knee-jerk fuss on the street.
