Re: Food

Always good to remember Japanese use spoons for fried rice. Nigiri sushi [emoji496] can be eaten with hands and often is.

Bowl of ramen is a chop sticks optimized experience tho.

Re: Food

Uh, hard to describe. With the correct grip what winds up preventing the slip of the bottom stick is really just the side of the finger pad right at the top knuckle. Lots of japanese people have a noticeable callous right at that knuckle on the side. If you hold the sticks strictly perpendicular to ...

Re: Food

i've never understood how the technically correct people don't have the lower stick slide off the finger. It's 2.5 seconds into any eating effort for me with that grip. Part of it is pincer pressure is overrated. In general you don't go sticks down, pinch and pick up. You go sticks from the side and...

Re: Food

I do the index and middle fingers with thumb pad on top stick, and bottom stick between ring finger and middle of thumb. I thought most people just used index and thumb on top stick, and middle and thumb on bottom stick. My problem with that is not enough pinching force to keep food from falling. Y...

Re: Food

I’m a two fingers on top stick guy. “Right” to the Japanese is three on top stick and bottom stick braced by thumb and the finger next to pinkie. The biggest problem for me in that grip is the bottom stick slips.

Re: Words I Happen to Dislike

Why do I feel like the things that fall under adulting are things that start when you are like 21 if not sooner. Doing laundry? Managing a checking account? WTF you are 30????

Masculinity, so fragile

Don't they do the thing where they surround the female until she is exhausted then do the thing? Edit - yup “Two or three males will surround the female, leaping and bellyflopping, swiveling and somersaulting, all in perfect synchrony with one another.

Re: Speaking in tongues (the "learning languages" thread)

In my experience with Japanese (admittedly not that much), they mostly just say things in such a way as to avoid having to use counting words. And how it survives is with a bunch of people saying "This is how REAL {insert language name here} is spoken. You have to do it this way or SHAME!!!!" Just ...

I think the apartment thing detracts from the important message that’s she’s completely retarded in the “unemployment is low because everyone works two jobs” sort of way. Fucking. Stupid.
