RE: Going to the movie theatre.

I think almost anywhere you go it gets really expensive, especially when you want to watch a movie with the whole family. We only go very rarely, usually once or even twice a year if the movie is really really good. $8.50/person here in New York is already expensive, and you watch it on some small m...

RE: up and died

well i never knew such thing was used until i remembered back when i was a kid watching a cartoon called "Atom Ant."

Everytime there was a bad guy, he'd shout "up and atom, atom ant!"

RE: Saddest Anime Ever?

I dunno what ur talking about but I also vote for Grave of Fireflies. I watched that about a year ago when i was a senior in highschool. Im also that kind of shy guy, talk to only super close friends, almost anti social, nonemotional dude thats just sits in class, works, leaves school. When i finish...

RE: Video Game japanese and Kanji

*takes 10 minutes trying to read a katakana word* Oh my god it says Electro-magnetic Plasma Wave Attack. While we may use words like shiitake, tsunami, and other loan words, it amazes me how the average Japanese rpg player could read English words like this. And this is just the tip, ive played many...

RE: Impossible to learn on your own?

We each have our own styles. I dont really understand the whole "hard to learn by yourself if you dont have the motivation." If people do want to learn something by themselves, doesnt it mean that they must have some kind of interest in it? I know I wouldnt have any motivation to learn something if ...

RE: are you ever going to japan?

Cultural shock is the best experiance anyone could have. I mean everything around you is new - the feeling of being lost, scared, alone, depressed, excitement, motivation, and other stuff all surging. I remember i felt my first cultural shock when I moved from Saudi Arabia to New York. From a place ...

RE: beware the orange ball

Its pretty simple, its to identify the criminal, so when he tries to run away and blend with the crowd... oh wait - he cant. I read some comments on youtube and some of them sounded pretty ignorant. I believe the banks here in the US also use that system with their money. Once someone tries to open ...

I have a modded NDS, and no i dont think its illegal to talk about modded stuff. Your NDS is a peice of hardware that you bought, and you have every right to play around with it like modding. Its no different than buying a computer then adding more memory, etc... Talking about modding is like talkin...

How are we supposed to know if its fun or not when theres nothing to compare it to. It doesnt have to be fun, just the combination of the...
