    Wow!! This is another argument to support the thinking that Turks and Japanese are related not only by language, but also culturally. I read about it somewhere and it kind of fascinates me..

    I believe this thread you have started and the arguments you have given score higher on the annoyance scale than the current "westernization" of countries.

    I did some Googling and found a few China-related pages.. My best guess is that it means the same as the Japanese Otosidama. Ah, here is a even better page.

    I'm no Chinese but I'd say your guess is pretty much right. u”ü–¡v in Japanese means "delicious" so I think u”üHv is "tasty food"..

    But then again, I had a conversation with a Chinese girl the other...
  8. Poll: I have never been such a place, so I may not be...

    I have never been such a place, so I may not be the right one to answer this one. However, I can imagine such a parking lot + hotels being more environmentally friendly than not having such a place....

    What a whole lot of bullsh.. Do we have another, non-conjured word for that?

    The Spanish vocabulary contains less words than English, now are Spanish less caring of.. Everything?

    Your theory...

    Before people start blaming and shaming other countries of being "not environmentally friendly" or "not up to modern standards" (if I may be so free to paraphrase some of you posters), may I put it...

    I don't have a link I'm sorry but I used to go to Belgiu.. Flanders a lot, so that's how I know. A Belgia.. Flemish friend of mine and I were actually talking "waterkonijn" a while ago. :blush:
  12. Poll: Belgians call "water-rat" (which is a delicacy...

    Belgians call "water-rat" (which is a delicacy according to my dear southern neighbours) "water-konijn", which translates to "water-rabbit".. Now how stupi.. I mean, how logical is that? :blush:

    Maciamo, you have to admit there are more meaningless names in western countries than in Japan/Chinese, in which every name has a true meaning. I'm often interested in the meanings of people's names...

    You call it hijacking, some might call it misscommunication.
    That's sad indeed.

    What are you saying? Some of us just genuinely expressed our concerns about the issue in the original post. Someone else started posting about WWII and comparing footage posted (fulfulling a request)...

    I don't know if it's an addiction, but I love eating. It is actually my life's pleasure. :-) I can go for days, weeks and months without sex, alcohol or entertainment, but I have to eat good food...

    I know!! And I am 184 cm, 1 cm short of average.. Argh!!
    I used to be the shortest kid in class until the end of middle school though. Being bullied and all, being called "short" or "small" is the...

    I totally agree. One can either get upset and ***** about it, or one can.. Well, get on with with their lives basically.

    I couldn't have hold my laughter if I were in that position.. As the article point out, Japan doesn't look at all like a first-world country in some aspects!!

    I don't know about the situation in Scandinavia, but a quick browse through Google made me find a lot of articles of saying how racist people of Sweden are. So if it's right that Sweden is/was as...

    "Us" and "our" are.. Anyone who feels being addressed by this post really. :relief:

    And yeah, this is my first post on a subject other than food, English/Japanese and chit-chat in a long while!!

    But.. Who's generalizing who? I mean not all Japanese are like that. Sure, it is true that most of them are, and don't get me wrong, three weeks in Japan last August was enough discrimination for me...

    I might not make a difference to you, but I know more people that rather not use the word "gaijin", and prefer to use "gaikoku no hito" or "gaikoku no kata"..
