Explicitly bad or in comparison to some other writing system?
>What were your favourite albums of last year?
Is it an open question? In any case:
0.8秒と衝撃 – 破壊POP
八十八ヶ所巡礼 – 日本
冨田勲 – スペース・ファンタジー
佐藤慶明 – Cinq Lignes
Hauptharmonie – Hauptharmonie
Also, don't know if it counts since it's a compilation album, 坂本龍一 year book 2005-2014
>let's mash together two different syllabaries (replete with diacritics and subscripts), an alphabet, and a logography (with tens of thousands of characters and superscripts), all with no spaces between words
It's a mess.
people complain about this so much but its blown way out of proportion
Hiragana and Katakana (including all the diacritics and subscripts, because these make sense to everyone; the way they change sounds is entirely intuitive and based on the physiology in our mouths) can be learned in a week without working too hard
Although there are that many characters in existence, many of them are just variant forms that you will never see, and if you do see them it is obvious what the character is (the difference is either very slight or otherwise totally obvious).
You really have to learn maybe 2500 of them to become capable of learning the vocabulary needed to be fluent. How fast this happens depends on one's dedication.
And the combination of Kanji and Hiragana/Katakana actually make spaces entirely unnecessary—you will never be confused about the boundaries between words if you are reading something written with ample Kanji.
I hope this helps make the task seem less daunting at least
Fucking hell lads
I accidentally food poisoned myself
Spent whole yesterday just throwing up in a bucket and still feeling like shit
I used sauce from an old Bento on a new bento without thinking of it, was some brown shit inside a very small bottle with a red lid
I do not know what the fuck it was I Just know that my body seem to have wanted every fucking cubic millimeter of it out
That doesn't sound right to me. Those sauces are like soy sauce or like yakiniku sauce
Those don't go bad lmao
When you get food poisoning, if you wanna know what did it you have to look at what you ate at least the day before or two days ago.
The bacteria that cause it take a day or two AT LEAST to make you sick
Are you sure? I remember the moment I consumed the first bite of that saucy rice I got thus huge clump in my stomach that just did not go away until I threw up in the hallway trying to run to the toilet a few hours later
Though it did not stop there and I kept throwing up during the whole day
Nice. I used to exclusively listen to Japanese music for a few years, but have since stopped.
I saw a really interesting interview with him on Japanese TV. I can't find it for the life of me. Oh well.
Nice. I'm a really big fan of her work under ゲルニカ
Mine would be:
thread music; 金正日豚汁 - miso soup with pork and General Kim Jong Il
It's "the" Best!
Maybe She is ugly.
Also from experience. I developed a taste aversion to like 4 things because of a bad case of food poisoning when I was a kid. My parents were so frustrated with me they took me to a doctor who told me we associate the misery of food poisoning with what we most recently ate cause thats what we see coming out of us.
But food poisoning isn't caused by undigested food, which is what we puke up. It's caused by bacteria, and they take some time to fuck you up.
Are single-sex schools less common in Japan than in the West?
We should let in much less white people, especially Americans, since Europeans tend to be eager to learn Korean.
I do not think I need to, I am feeling better then I did yesterday
I guess that might be the case the, though that particular bento was not advertised as an old bento
damn, really? i must be wrong, trying to remember where i heard it
have thrown out a lot of rice i might not have had to apparently
Well if you leave it in the rice cooker it's probably really warm But thats actually bad cause bacteria like those warm wet environments
Be serious--food poisoning from fried rice?
Yes, and the culprit is Bacillus cereus. Before the 1970s, B. cereus
(pronounced B. serious) was not thought to cause outbreaks of food
poisoning in the United States. However, it now is known that different
strains of this commonly found spore-forming bacteria cause two different
forms of foodborne illness.
The first form often is found in meats and vegetables and produces a
toxin that is destroyed easily by heating. The second form, however,
produces a toxin that survives high temperatures as well as acidic
conditions. This is the form commonly associated with fried rice. Pasta
products also have been implicated as sources.
The organism itself frequently is found in uncooked rice and may
survive cooking. If the cooked rice is then held at room temperature, the
bacteria multiply and produce a heat-stable toxin that can survive brief
heating, such as in stir frying.
I don't hate integrated white people who make effort to learn Korean and local culture.
I despise foreigners (mostly English-speaking) coming here to get English teaching jobs that is barely better than McJobs and still thinks they are entitled to everything and they need not learn Korean because English is the only language worth speaking.
Some of them even have superiority complex, always saying "oh we do it better in our country etc."
I am sure Japan has seen their fair share of these kind of foreigners. The problem is Korea is importing them at a rate that is pure madness.
Hopefully there will be filters in the near future.
In Oriental restaurants, large batches of rice frequently are left to
cool at room temperature. Refrigeration is said to make the rice sticky,
yielding a less desirable fried-rice product, so rice is cooled at room
temperature. This cooling--especially if prolonged--creates ideal
conditions for the organism to grow and proliferate toxin.
One recent outbreak involved a catered lunch served to children in two
day care centers. Cooked rice was cooled to room temperature before being
placed in the refrigerator. The next morning it was pan-fried in oil with
pieces of cooked chicken and delivered to the day care centers where it was
held for one and one-half hours before being served.
Within six hours, 14 of the 67 children and staff who ate the fried
rice became ill with nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
B. cereus was isolated as the culprit. What was disturbing was that neither
the day care staff nor the restaurant food handlers were aware that cooked
rice was a potentially hazardous food.
Luckily, B. cereus food poisoning usually lasts only six to 24 hours
and seldom is associated with long-term complications. Regardless, any form
of food poisoning is best avoided.
How does one avoid B. cereus food poisoning? Treat cooked rice as you
would a cooked meat product. Refrigerate leftovers promptly in shallow
containers to encourage rapid cooling. If you're cooking rice for use later
in fried rice, refrigerate the cooked rice in shallow containers within one
hour of preparation. Keep cooked rice refrigerated until ready to stir fry.
Once prepared, keep fried rice hot (above 140 degrees Fahrenheit) until
ready to serve.
The problem with this is that it goes against all the food safety principles i know.
I was taught to NEVER put hot things in the fridge. To always let them cool to room temp then refrigerate.
If you don't, it gives off its heat to everything else in the fridge bringing everything to warm enough temps to allow bacterial growth.
>I despise foreigners (mostly English-speaking) coming here to get English teaching jobs that is barely better than McJobs and still thinks they are entitled to everything and they need not learn Korean because English is the only language worth speaking.
i find it really hard to believe that these people actually exist, and in fact there's so many of them that it's worth complaining about
people who would apply to teach english abroad would be doing it because they want to experience those countries surely, they're certainly not doing it for financial gain because the pay is shit
I do have watery diarrhea but I do not think I have eaten literal shit
cool super power
Maybe takahiro scratched his asshole while making your bento
>english abroad would be doing it because they want to experience those countries surely, they're certainly not doing it for financial gain because the pay is shit
You would not believe the amount of unemployable liberal arts majors in western countries who were too dumb to choose something useful like engineering.
that's really disappointing to hear. it's a shame that the first point of contact for many people abroad are liberal art students. what a fucking disaster
>You would not believe the amount of unemployable liberal arts majors in western countries who were too dumb to choose something useful like engineering
What world do STEM people see when they open their eyes?
This is actually quite creative. You belong in theater
I didn't mean to slam lib art majors altogether i am lib art myself but it is true that a fair amount of English instructors I have witnessed throughout my school years belong to the "scum" category.
and a fair share of the scum had degrees like english philosophy from some obscure universities no one has ever heard of that are presumably barely better than community colleges.
Hey man, you missed that today I am using "ではありません”
Look at what edition of Mikai no Hoshi we have, hue-hue.
And I have a question. Why guitars for Japan have so hight quality? I have MIJ Fender Mustang and Jazz Bass. How you do this?
Japanese student comes in a few weeks now, doesn't speak spanish that good yet but he manages with english.
