    And if you read the link you supplied correctly, you'll see that in fact you are wrong. Television was proposed as a concept in the 19th century, but the technology didn't exist until the early...

    A number of principles which later led to the development of television, were discovered late in the 19th century, but television most certainly wasn't invented then. Pretty much every textbook on...

    Gaijinalways - I think you're a little confused over your terms.





    So in the first quote, you claim both life and tax to be permanent entities. Then in the second, you claim they will come...

    Re: Gold digging


    To be fair to Mike, he was pointing out that your comments made you sound like a gold digger. Not that you are one. Which was indeed true - you did give the impression that...

    Eh? No it's not. Something is either permanent or it's not. Perception doesn't come into it. The distinction is as clear as black and white. I don't disagree with some of the stuff you said, but...

    Sorry for the late reply. Rather ironically, I didn't have time to get online because work was so busy ;-)


    I have to admit, I don't entirely understand the question. I'm not sure what you mean...
  7. Poll: I too have an identical contract to my...

    I too have an identical contract to my co-workers. I get the same benefits, bonuses and salary scale that they do. I also regularly work longer hours than just about any foreigner I know (I've...

    I do think though there is a danger of playing the gaijin card too strongly, or at every opportunity. I think there is a certain mindset that often jumps to the wrong conclusion either through...

    Haha... that's one of the best typos I've seen in a while...


    I've been reading this forum for quite a long time before I finally became a member, and I've personally lost count of the number of...

    I don't entirely agree. We're talking about being able to identify national characteristics. I'm English, and long before I left England I could have told you 10 adjectives I felt described our...

    I'm still unclear as to why a Japanese who hasn't lived abroad will find it difficult. Do Belgians find it difficult to identify their own national characteristics unless they live somewhere other...

    Why didn't you just entitle this thread "List all the stereotypes you have about Japanese people"?

    Would you like to explain why? Why would a Japanese who hasn't lived abroad have difficulty in...

    Ditto - tolerant - 23%
    I had to wonder about the sports questions too. Presumably agreeing that there are genetic differences makes you more racist, but when was the last there was a white champion...

    Sorry to respond to this a bit late.

    I can't speak for others, but personally my own opinion is the opposite. As far as living in Japan goes, I will always consider myself a foreigner. I will...
  16. Poll: I think the admin of this site really dislikes...

    I think the admin of this site really dislikes Japanese people. It's not a very positive set of choices, is it?

    I don't think there is any perfect answer to the poll because "gaijin" means...

    Frankly I'm appalled. Appalled, disgusted and disappointed.

    Maciamo. I've rarely agreed with you. I've found you to be pompous, arrogant and conceited. But, until now I've been quite happy to...

    How extraordinary! The same thing also happened to me.


    Maciamo, you don't have to use direct language to be offensive to other people. Many people feel that the language that you often use is...

    Actually, I believe he said "Japan != Tokyo".

    "!=" is the 'not equal to' or 'inequality' relational operator, most commonly found in imperative programming. Your example means the opposite.

    The fact that you even need me to tell you, just underlines the problem. How can you not see that constantly harking on about your superior intellect, knowledge, experience etc. comes across badly...

    Send me a t-shirt.

    Don't be too hard on Nagashima-san - he uses a software translator. Those things are friggin' useless. He probably thinks you don't know which is the correct kanji.

    This might come as a surprise to some given our recent history, but I find myself largely agreeing with the OP on this one. This is an insightful and interesting thread and I think Maciamo is spot...
