On one side, it says 落ちつけ!; and on the opposite side, it says 燃えろ! on a background of flames. I suggested "cool down" or "calm down" for the firs...

RE: Apology

Does this mean I have to cancel the shipment of torches and pitchforks?

RE: A thank you to Mr. Cash and everyone

Never before have I witnessed a more wise and insightful truck driver. Mike Cash is a true "Road Scholar."

RE: Bad grade... suggestions?

But not spelling, apparently :p Katafei, you would have no problem getting a job teaching English (illegally) in Taiwan. As long as you look like you can speak English, there are plenty of schools who'd love to have you! I think I saw those guys when they came to my university last year... very impr...

RE: Bad grade... suggestions?

You wouldn't believe some of the things kids in Taiwan get taught in English class by their Taiwanese teachers, some of whom can barely speak more than a few words, themselves.

RE: Two words - different spelling/kanji, same meaning?

午餐 is common in Chinese, but I've never seen it used in Japanese. As Yudan said, it's best to stick to words you've actually seen or heard in context before as much as possible.

Why do you want to live in Japan? What makes it better than w...
