Hmm, I wonder why? Maybe the only people on this thread who have gone to Japan (or just most people our age interested in going to Japan) are otaku?

Not only that, but according to some of the Japanese folks I've talked to, sushi is a bit of a rarity there because of how expensive fish is. XD
Yeah but of all the things to do in Japan, or any country really... >.>

That is true. I wasn't too crazy about the food in Japan, they don't eat excessive amounts compared to other asian countries.

I didn't go to Japan for the food, I went to Japan for the crazy technology and whatnot. Well funny thing is, I didn't really see that much technology advancement in consumer goods, just lifestyle technology. In which a sense I guess was even better. E.g. phone technology, instant customer service, sky trains, convenient stores are literally convenient...

AKIHABARA HAD MAIDS WALKING AROUND @-@

But if you wanted food, and TONS of it, go to other asian countries. I spent $5 on a stack of butterfly shrimp that was the size of my hand, miso soup, ketchup fried rice....
In Canada.. $5 would get me a fish burger and medium fries...

I don't think there are many burger places that beat Dick's for the bang for your buck. :3

 

Five Guys was sort of meh for me too; the buns seem to always be soggy with that dry patty grease or something according to Michelle XD

haha. ha.

the first few times I went through that with a clean mind. Just recently I didn't though ):

I didn't like steak and shake, they were too expensive for what you got.

Yeah five guys is awesome.

Guess it's dependent on the person then :p

Here it's relatively cheap for what's gotten. Then again, I guess it's where you are.

Most Favorite all time:

Bitter Virgin


putin talk

I swear there's a correlation between people that like CG and LotGH.

Bowei is clearly a pervert in saying that he likes "bitter virgin". Man. Or just some lover of bad tasting alcohol drinks. ;)

 

Putin does have character, which I also like. But I don't like the policies and the way things are done (such as the "elections") :p

Quick question: what's everyone's favorite Manga?

My favorite is "Girl the Wild's"

Manga? Too many favorites :0 Current one would probably be Akame ga Kill

Can't say I like any web toons though.

 

Welcome, my good chap. Welcome to the dark side of head-fi :veryevil: 

 

 

Edit:

I never knew that wi-fi was a pun on hi-fi until about a month ago...

Doesn't it feel.. kinda fake? and awkward to have maids serve you? I never really understood that type of roleplay.

 

Meaning, I probably wouldn't be able to control myself and would laugh if I was in one of those maid cafes

How the 'elections' went in Russia were part of the badassery of why I like Putin

 

Yes, having fair democratic elections and that cycle is good. That has its ups and downs with good and bad leaders and can also lead to serious crap and failing if not done correctly. 

 

Putin and his crownies thought, **** that schiit. A new federation would be beneficial with a 'behind the scenes' autocratic based system. As history, political studies, and LOGH shows. This is indeed one of the beneficial ways. This way, is actually more beneficial for countries that are rising out of ashes IF DONE CORRECTLY. This typically isn't that case, and the possibility of long standing dictators leads to possible more worse solutions than a full democratic system. Most choose the safer and slower route. Putin said **** that. 

 

You need to look at the big picture. Look at the RF's history, and look at what Putin has done. It is nothing less than awe aspiring and moving. In one of the recent videos showing Russian Cossacks beating a protestor. One of them said 'Putin will teach you to love the motherland'. It was funny, but it was also real. 

 

LOGH was nothign short of amazing.

And I had a three (that turned into four) hour train ride yesterday, so... Why not? :o

 

Ooh, have you been designing more projects or just working on "that" project? XD

 

Wow~ where were you going?

 

 

nah, just working my arse off for the ABU Robocon robotics competition....

I made a 1.1kW BLDC motor driver/controller yesterday.

Depends, there was a girl who walked around in my school who wore a semi-gothic maid outfit everyday. It was also quite adorable because interesting enough, I was taking a culinary course with her >.<

A spoiler to spoil your spoiler (Click to show)
He somewhat has a girlfriend. A girl who spied on him from a mansion up on a hill while he was living in an apartment down in a nearby town. He can't accept her as his girlfriend because of his deliria that there's an organization spying on him. So even after 14 episodes of the two characters being together, all that was formed was a contract that if he tries to commit suicide, so will she.

He doesn't say "she's my girlfriend", but he does say something along the lines of "I'll try and maintain this as long as I can"

At the time of watching, I was furious there wasn't a fan relief sort of episode where they at least hug. But now that I think about it, it's sort of cute. Since both characters really have a serious social underhand in society and this sort of death contract is what will keep them going.


P.S. I burst out laughing when I saw your profile picture for your youtube channel. xD

Well, in order of plausibility:
 
1. Sell it locally
2. Keep controllers for use on PC/Android, sell console
3. Wait for a CFW (the super slim still doesn't have one)
 
Selling it internationally or donating the controllers is still out of the question for the time being. すまん!
