>But it doesn't point to the fact that there's something off with the black people you see. It's something wrong with you
I mean, I never argued that there was something off with the black people walking by, in fact my comment was an attempt at self-depreciation.
It really wasn't 'racist thoughts and subconscious beliefs' that causes this, though. In fact, paradoxically, it's this obsession with not being racist, an obsession that I've been taught since birth, that causes this.
How inexpensively can you live in Japan if you're willing to go somewhere very rural or isolated? I have no interest in the city, but it seems like most of the English accounts of visiting/living in Japan exclusively describe living in cities or suburbs.
You lads up to anything nice with the gf this weekend?
>Head out to smaller towns or rural areas and people fucking hate you, I can't even count the amount of times I walked in to a restaurant or bar and then had everyone stop and look at me with the "What the fuck are you doing here you filthy foreigner" while the staff treat me like shit.
Can someone please explain why Brazil is called "burajiru" instead of "barajiru"
It's Brazil not Bruzil.
>United States of America
naming conventions for countries are arbitrary and conform to whatever language you're speaking
>People of a rural area that is not a sightseeing area are not friendly to the foreign (not only expatriates but also Japanese).
What? But that's the opposite of here. People in the countryside are friendly compared to city people.
>Take month off work and stay in japan for a month
>Really enjoy the place
>Debating if I want to delay purchasing a unit(>sydney housing prices >buying a unit at the age of 22) or study+part time work in nippon
Enough maybe, maybe another $20k post tax because my current software development contract runs out in 6 months time, we have a thing called hecs here which I can probably dump a lot of debt on if I go through a uni, already have an existing degree so they should be pretty comfortable with it.
What is that package?
I see it associated all the time with yopparai salary men
What is inside of it?
This is the face I am currently making because it is such a mystery
Please consider returning to bed. It is still very early - and a Saturday morning to boot.
Why are you up cuteposter?
I slept for like 11 hours
I wish I would sleep less during the weekends
>Being an ass
Would it be weird to, instead of saying the katakana-ized form of a foreign word, just say the word in its original language pronunciation?
Like if I said (romaji to demonstrate pronunciation):
>Watashi wa Texas-jin des
>Watashi wa Tekisesujin des
>2d Japan not exist
>there's only gook society with racist manlets
we're building a city that's hideously expensive to live in, but have yet to figure out that we need large numbers of small/affordable housing units and decent public transportation if we're going to do that
the only people who can afford fashionable stuff are the children of wealthy chinese immigrants
I'm curious how much truth there is to the "japs are actually ugly" meme and how much of it is people who just don't like asians in the first place. Has anyone ever seen someone who looks like, say, ai shinozaki just walking around IRL?
For now maybe, but we're faster and faster working our way out of this awkward postmodern era and into the glorious transhumanism eon where we can all be cute 2D anime girls forever.
>I'm curious how much truth there is to the "japs are actually ugly" meme
All lies, propagated by bitter manlets who were bullied by cute Japanese girls growing up.
You posted that to get it colored, right?
Nay, I posted it because I think its a cute picture even though it does show a certain lack of knowledge when it comes to form
Nevertheless I like your palette
Look at that smug little shit. Unencumbered by a third dimension, he can have all the cute 2D anime girls he wants - and he knows it.
I dunno man, it's a lot of money and at the end of the day I still have to come back to buying a unit.
Just lay me down to die.
Chinese immigrants are also going to become wealthy class in Japan eventually.
Because our government and stupid nationalist are idiot.
All immigrants are not wrong.
It is wrong that the administrative organ doesn't care about the people on the place.
Chinese and Koreans in Vancouver come to Japan to earn money from their job.

I am not quite sure how I would do it myself most effectively but I bet you there is an option to do that effectively in photoshop
At the moment the best thing I can think of is making that background layer a new layer, color under it and then retrace the lines using the pen tool but I bet there is a much simpler and effective way
Follow your dreams
You don't have to be scared, anon. It doesn't hurt - unless you want it to.
A Japanese woman TV entertainer went to her boy friend's parents' home in New Year's Day.
It seems that he married another woman half a year ago and decided a divorce.
Japanese companies aspersed her.
btw she is half British and half Japanese.
> A British teenager who avoided showering by spraying himself with deodorant died after inhaling butane gas from the spray-on scents.
>Thomas Townsend was found collapsed with 42 cans aerosol spray around him in his bedroom at a children’s home in Folkestone, Kent, this August.
>The longtime foster care resident was said to go through a can of deodorant a week by spraying it all over himself each morning in an attempt to cover up his body odor without bathing.
Beware the deodorising jew.
This girl I'm talking to has something of a sex addiction even though she's a virgin.
>It isn't that fun as you may think it sucks sometimes
>Sometimes it's obsessive
>I set up sex with all these people
>But never follow through
>And I try to get raped
>Like run in bad neighborhoods at night
>And I looked up cities with most rape
>So I can go to college there
>When I was little I used to stay up the whole night to masturbate
>At least I haven't followed through on sex yet
>Idk it's sexy sometimes but also a curse
>I feel like virginity is all I have left
She's Catholic, she really wants to be raped so she can have sex without feeling guilt and responsibly.
Idek what to say to her. I kind of feel sorry for her.
She might be trying to scare you away by pretending to be insane or testing you to see if you stick around.
I think some women have trouble rejecting people directly. Like they'd sometime say they're lesbians or have a boyfriend cause they suspect that will get guys to leave them alone.
Looks like Yakuza bait to me tbhlad
She probably wants you to follow up on her rape fantasies in some dark woods and before you know it your internal organs are up for sale on some black market in India
>I feel like virginity is all I have left
Pretty sure the Mexicans are capable of the same thing
The human organ market is very lucrative
Idk if pretending to be an unhinged girl is the best way to lure out victims.
Anyways what she really wants in life is someone to marry her so she can have sex whenever she wants without feeling bad. Any volunteers?
Quite sure that abusing our most primal desire is the most effective method there is to tie someone around ones finger
As in pretending to be an unhinged girl to lure someone
I don't know if that works with me. My sex drive isn't all that high.
Reading stuff like this just makes me more afraid to have sex. What if I unknowingly take away "all someone has left." I will probably remain a virgin for a while.
The last time I went to a massage parlor I did so because I was stupid and my back was sore.
The Asian girl who could have easily been under 18 and was definitely a prostitute told me that they took her passport and forced her to work 70 hours a week and her "boss" took all her tips.
I hope you can understand why I don't ever intend to step foot in a place like that again.
15 minutes or so? i didn't really keep track of time
almost went soft halfway through actually from my desensitization to real women and the condom stealing all of the feeling
i tried a different place a few days later and only lasted half as long though, so maybe it was just the girl
and in both cases the soapland-style thing where the girl washed me with her entire body was better than the sex anyway
at the second place i went to i requested a specific girl i had heard about, but she was on vacation, and the replacement i got said she would also be going on vacation to hawaii in a few weeks, so i don't think the places here are shady to the point of taking the girls' passports or anything
(though honestly i'd be lying if i said it mattered to me anyway)
He's practising his Japanese so that one day he speak it really well
>and in both cases the soapland-style thing where the girl washed me with her entire body was better than the sex anyway
Huh, I was under the impression that with these sorts of places it was just "walk in, get massaged normally, then a handjob at the end".
How does one differentiate these soapland-style places from others, o Prince of Darkness?
I'm only part white.
That's not a good way to get regulars... It scared me away.
>(though honestly i'd be lying if i said it mattered to me anyway)
Do you not have a heart?
I think she might have been vietnamese, not sure though because I'm an ignorant american desu.
>life is short
>life is also the longest thing you'll ever do
>Life is too short to do something.

rubmaps. i wouldn't think about trying any place before reading reviews for it first
it's $15/month but if you're going to be dropping $200 for "full service" visits that's nothing
i'm also lucky that here in dallas the competition means there's no pussyfooting around. apparently in other places it's not uncommon for most parlors to be massage-and-handjob types like you describe, and MAYBE if you go several times and build up enough rapport with a girl she'll go all the way.
here, once you're in the room you just put the $200 on the table and nothing more needs to be said.
if i was gonna go down that rabbit hole then i'd first feel sorry for the third world kids slaving away in shit conditions to provide me with cheap food/electronics/other miscellany. but then i wouldn't be able to function, so i don't think about it.
>Think continually how many physicians are dead after often contracting their eyebrows over the sick; and how many astrologers after predicting with great pretensions the deaths of others; and how many philosophers after endless discourses on death or immortality; how many heroes after killing thousands; and how many tyrants who have used their power over men's lives with terrible insolence as if they were immortal; and how many cities are entirely dead, so to speak, Helice and Pompeii and Herculaneum, and others innumerable. Add to the reckoning all whom thou hast known, one after another. One man after burying another has been laid out dead, and another buries him:

Hello and welcome to Begin Japanology.

It's one thing when they're far away. It's another when they're literally touching you I think, being forced to have sex with you pretty much.
Does creative media content consumption classify as a hobby?
I go hiking in Altai a couple of times every year, dunno if it's my hobby or not, I'd love to have enough money to hike around Japan too.
Dr. Yaller Naica (ヤラー・ナイカ博士) と申します。
i thought of that argument too, but as long as there's no reason to believe it's like that for these girls, and given the evidence (even if slight) that they're free to move around, i'll be able to keep my conscience clear
Hello, Peter, I'm Matt Alt and I'm awkward and uncomfortable to watch.
My names Nathaniel. I like to dance
>I go hiking in Altai a couple of times every year
Sounds pretty comfy, you should take pictures and post them here the next time you go.
Russia's a terrifyingly large country, and as much as I'd like to go hiking there, I'd be a bit worried about getting lost 2bh.
Well maybe in your case you had slight evidence. I guess I went to a sketchier place then, and well... it didn't seem like she had that freedom.
It doesn't help that I have a messed up virgin perception of sex. Like one person I was chatting with recently said that they'd had sex with many different guys, and that they hated it and that it was slimy and gross, but they felt like they were worthless and didn't deserve to be able to say no. Reading that kind of thing just haunts me.
I really need to get laid desu.
Begin Japanology is a bait and switch. It makes you feel satisfied in learning something vaguely japanese-related, but the reality is that it doesn't bring you any closer to speaking japanese. I like it but probably better to just watch nico videos.
I do calligraphy and other things that require penmanship
I believe it is a skill that will prove to be very useful all through my life which motivates me to spend what little time I allow myself to do it
This one was taken by me in 2013 (never took a camera since then)
We had a discussion in class once about schools ending the mandatory cursive classes in favor of typing classes. It seemed to shock the entire class when I pointed out that the entire purpose cursive was invented was so you could write more swiftly.
That said, one huge advantage of writing over typing for me, if you're taking notes or something, is that writing is scientifically proven to aid remembering what you've written.
Had one as a part of a exchange program my school had, otherwise no
Would you have any first time suggestions, you know, for someone new to massage parlors? Any particularly favorite places?
>maybe we could meet up and save each other $200
what precisely are you suggesting?
How can I tell my sensei to stop being so 'm-minna, shizukanishite k-kudasai!'? She doesn't remind my classmates that they're studying a language and not anime and videogames.
If I can't find another teacher, I'll drop everything and start swedish.
Shitposting as usual I see Australia
But yes I am Swedish
And Scandinavian countries are the elite countries in Europe.
Therefore∴Sweden is the best country in Europe.
And Europe is always,superior to other regions such as North and South Americas, Africa, Asia and Down Under.
Therefore, ∴ Sweden is the best country in the world.
>tfw you learn that Danes can understand Swedes but Swedes can't understand Danes
I think the evidence speaks for itself.
platinum rainbow spa, 2018 W Northwest Hwy (with a bunch of blue lights surrounding the windows)
it was my first one and they do the soapland body rub while the second one i tried doesn't
never mention massages, sex or anything else like that, you're just there for relaxation. never mention reviews/the internet at all. if they ask how you found the place just say a friend told you about it
either pay the full $200 up front when you meet the girl (leave it on the table in the room) or, when she asks for the initial fee for the 30/60 minutes, meticulously take out your money making it obvious that you have enough for the full service
after you're shown to a room but before the girl comes, undress fully, and don't be shy about your cock showing.
during the table shower, be very touchy-feely with her legs and butt.
>what precisely are you suggesting?
anyway i'm going to bed now, if you have more questions: garlandanon@gmail
I do not like the current European immigration policies
Nah, it's a webcomic called Stand Still Stay Silent. The author probably watches too much anime though, all her males look like femboys traps (apart from Madsen).
Pic related, this is apparently what the author believes human males look like.
Anything that takes more physical investment is going to create a larger impact on your memory. IE: You're far more likely to remember where you put something that you went through a lot of effort to move, over something that you set down with no effort whatsoever.
This is presumably also why practicing stroke order is so useful for memorizing characters even though it seems entirely arbitrary.
