Oh good, I could post this webm again with it being on topic.
"if a cactus had intel inside"
He says "itai" (ouch) which sounds like "aitai" (want to meet)
She says I want to meet too.
Makes me wonder if right now there is a thread on 2ch where they post western commericals and everbody's like "wtf was that? those are batshit crazy. can't they make normal commericals?"
Then again, I haven't been watching TV in like 10 years, so I don't even know any current western commericals...
Crustless marshmallow bread
Those were originally foreign to Japan before they were introduced by westerners throughout the years, so they adopted the original name. It's the same with America calling Mexican tortillas basically tortilla.
you should try it. its pretty good (oh gotta use that japanese mayo that has mustard in it).
speaking of aesthetics, found the image on the cover of floral shoppe
I'm looking for a recent one where a girl out and abound sees couples, gets lonely and instead she goes home to play some mobile game instead.
I think it was Xmas themed.
Please help ;_;
you got yourself a retard
future is not bright for your daughter
make another child. seriously. if you have a kid who fails, you feel like you failed. if you have one failure and one successfull, it can be narrowed down to the kid being a rotten apple in the family tree.
seriously, 5 years old and still at baby state is worrysome at best, I don't know where you come from but kids start with school at 6 here.
Also, talk to your girl more, and do potty training, you dipshit. kids aren't plants, and they're not your average jungle animal either. the only thing they learn by instincts is breathing, reacting on their needs, and recognizing threats, and even that can be damaged.
quiz RPG commercial. It is not a really good game, but it has its funny moments:
The game starts a quiz, and shows my options first:
And then the game loads up the question:
>Which one of them is a zodiac sign?
>Five out of six ain't bad.
you do realize most of those words actually come from other languages BEFORE English adapted the words into the English language, right? <_<
anyway on the topic of Engrish: yh it's weird. apparently it's "cool" to have English words in Japanese so that's why a lot of commercials use them.
I did that. I plainly told you how tall one girl in the video is, and from that information, you can gauge the height of the rest of them. By giving you the height of the tallest one in the video, I have successfully conveyed the point that "all of them are very short by western standards". Instead of listing out all the heights of every girl in that scene, you can take the height of the tallest girl and compare with the rest of them, successfully gaining an understanding of their relative height without listing them.
Was that so hard to figure out or are you just too much of an autist for reading comprehension and inference?
For those who don't know, Oranges have to be shipped to japan and their orange juice sucks. Its much sweeter here.

Welcome to the World Wide Web, invented by Europeans for everyone. It behoves you to use standard international units during your stay.
I'm unwilling to guess at what the initial poster's meaning was. One of the advantages of the SI is that any conceivable quantity can be defined with the smallest possible set of units. This obviates the need to concern oneself with the arcane, obsolescent regional units which persist in use in backwards areas of the world. Additionally, I think you'll find that no other system of measurement affects the daily lives of more people than the SI.
If this site was intended for an exclusively, or even primarily, American audience, moot would have taken it out with a .us TLD.
Put the thesaurus away buddy, you're not impressing anyone. SI units are primarily used for the extremely small or extremely large, I've never read a paper with metres in it. Everyone is familiar with feet and inches for height.
You should seriously go away. Sure Imperial units are silly for scientific calculations, but you really should be able to handle height in feet.
>invented by Europeans for everyone.
>invented by a Brit, who certainly knows Imperial measures, based on the work of American predecessors, running on American hardware with an American OS using link layer protocols invented by the US military.
Seriously man. You're being incredibly pedantic. You could've avoided all of this just by using google converter to change feet to meters. There is no practical purpose to change what 300 million+ people use in their daily lives just because "it converts better". Scientific communities can use it because it would make more sense, but guess what? I'm still going to use feet, inches, yards, miles, cups, teaspoons, and so on, if only just to spite people like you.
>backwards areas of the world.
He says on a contraption invented by Americans, on the internet invented by Americans, on a site made by an American.
>Welcome to the World Wide Web, invented by Europeans for everyone
Now I know you're trolling.
>Put the thesaurus away buddy
>SI units are primarily used for the extremely small or extremely large, I've never read a paper with metres in it.
If perhaps, you have read papers exclusively in fields such as sub-atomic physics and astrophysics, it is to a degree understandable how you may have developed that impression. The multiples and submultiples of SI units cover every conceivable order of magnitude - just because you have never personally used SI units in this way does not imply they are in any way inappropriate for such use.
>Everyone is familiar with feet and inches for height.
You know this isn't true.
>you really should be able to handle height in feet
The SI Brochure provides a series of multiples and submultiples of a well standardised unit of length such that it is suitable for expressing lengths of any conceivable magnitude. There is no reason why you should expect people to be generally familiar with any redundant regional units where the SI is sufficient.
>Implying major technological achievements can be accurately attributed to one person alone
Berners-Lee had help from colleagues of many European nationalities at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research when he developed the World Wide Web and associated technologies.
>All these red herrings
You may as well claim that it wasn't a German, but an Italian, who invented the motor car because it ran on roads.
>You could've avoided all of this just by using google converter to change feet to meters.
I'm not concerned with meters. The poster who tried to express the height of the girls in the advertisement is the only one who could have avoided this: he ought to have expressed the height with the metre, or some multiple or submultiple thereof.
>There is no practical purpose to change what 300 million+ people use
If that had been the case, the overwhelming majority of the world would not have seen fit to adopt the SI.
>just because "it converts better"
You misunderstand. The main advantage of the SI over a haphazard combination of arbitrarily defined units is that no conversion factors at all are necessary. In order to competently use the ecosystem of non-SI units to express the same range of quantities as the SI permits, it is necessary to learn hundreds of arbitrary conversion factors.
>I'm still going to use feet, inches, yards, miles, cups, teaspoons, and so on
Go ahead, hobble yourself.
>He says on a contraption invented by Americans
The first electronic digital programmable computer, first stored-program computer and first commercial programmable digital computer were invented in Euorpe.
>Now I know you're trolling.
What gives you that impression?
You've made an error in your post: you linked to my posts promoting the exclusive use of the SI instead of the posts of the apologists for the continued non-SI units not accepted for the SI and all that entails.
Why on Earth would you ever suggest that someone should stop advocating the proper use of SI prefixes, units and unit symbols as prescribed by the SI Brochure? Did you reply to the wrong post?
