Oh darn, I didn't even look, I saw nilecat's reply and did mine, but they were both using the Let's Play rules rather than Shiritoti >< That's what I get for looking at the most recent post instead of paying more attention to the name!

we both lose :p


on that note, back to the REAL rules

*Nilecat san, thank you.
*Adriano san, 梁上君子 = ネズミ or 泥棒, 賊, 強盗 (Refer to Nilecat's link)
It can also refer to a person who does nothing but spends hours and hours daydreaming in his/her own world.
So, 君子 does not always mean good, it depends on which type of 君子
