Who cares about stroke order, I do it at my own speed. Oh wait, you were talking about handwriting? ...Carry on.

Becoming fluent in writing Japanese is the least of my worries. It's something I'll practice doing after I've got a firm basis in the first 2k characters probably.

Well, I finally got a refund from buydig today, negative feedback incoming...
Also, trying to have a rational conversation with mainstream anime watchers about why naruto sucks is impossible...

As a Chinese person, I guess I should have an easier time in Japanese but the Kanji is still very daunting to me. I can't even get my own language right. I can't remember how to write the words. So confusing.

post #41945 of 137764

It's true that stroke order reveals itself after going through the first hundred or so kanji, the difficulty lies not in figuring out how to write it but just from shear memorization. I also can't agree with "never having to write kanji." From my perspective at least it is much easier to not only memorize but internalize a character after learning how to read it AND write it.

 

Japanese is a pretty YMMV language when learning.

 

Also to point out the above issue with the amount of characters you need to know, you cannot equate the words formed from an alphabet to a language that has words and ideas represented through characters, they're just not comparable in the first place.

Never seen you here before, welcome!

I have noticed myself too that writing a kanji is an excellent way of remembering it, but I have also found that reading is an even more efficient way. As a result I have stopped practicing handwriting altogether.

@bowei: did you compile a set of mp3s of all the OPs and EDs of 2012?
Also, I'm currently in the process of listening to 280 new vocaloid songs... Wish me luck...
post #41949 of 137764

Well, then as a response to all the people who've responded to my comments, I guess YMMV.

 

On the last story of the second LN of SAO.

 

My first experience with LN's was, ironically, at my local library. I had picked up this new book off a shelf with a strange cover, and it said "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya". It took me a few minutes to realize that this was the official English translation of the first Haruhi LN. That book took me hours to finish, but it felt much longer. It wasn't that the vocabulary was difficult, but that I'd get bogged down in the descriptions. It took me a few hours to finish the first SAO LN too.

 

Can't wait to move on to the ALO arc.

It isn't complete yet. I will wait for more suggestions. It ends on Dec 15 of the top songs of which I will then compile

Sony brought out some new outdoors popular cans. 

 

700

 

Cool

 

700

 

Needless to say, for the asking price of each of these cans (think Beats era price), I wouldn't buy them.

 

700

 

This really put into mind. We had a discussion in pm with other people that received review samples from Sennheiser and we came to a nice thought. Sennheiser does not have any well priced, good sounding univeral closed headphones. Their HD 25 II is the closest one. AFter that, for $350+, the Amperior and Momentum for the non DJ's really are not a very good sounding headphone for their price. And even the open ones are pretty flat as we can see in thepicture. 

 

700

 

I tried them all

 

As usual, the UE 6000 and HK CL were the best for the price. I would gladly buy it. HK CL sounded better but was more unfomcortable

 

700

 

These sounded alrright.

 

700

 

They sound as god as a $150 good stereo set. But for $600, it is a pass.

 

700

 

So much fun playing the airplane game :)

This is a 32" Samsung we just bought.

Held on by one side is not going to do anything grave to it. Not to mention no moving parts.
Well if you're using plastic thumb screws then maybe get the adapter just in case.

Well, the case comes with screws along with the simple lock mechanism. A bit worried about it being lopsided for no reason whatsoever.

 

You have to be kidding me. That there might be a bit dangerous just in case the PCB touches something...that's if it's exposed, and the sounds from vibration would kill my ears. That sound isn't very pleasant.

Level 12, the asking Asian. 

Hahaha. Well, I don't need one since not mounting it wouldn't harm anything, unless it decides to magically fall out after being placed on the bottom of the 5.25" cage if it has a bottom cover...thing/platform?

 

Hahaha. :D

1. Engrish IIRC is specific to Japanese English.

 

2. Yuup. My mom got some stuff for a wood fireplace this season. Got some free wood from my piano teacher since this enormous tree fell in his backyard.

 

3. Ikea is awesome. End of story.

 

4. Which Ikea is that? I've only been to the one I believe in New York or something...maybe it was Hartford...can't remember.

 

5. I don't remember them placing laptops out for size comparison...

 

6. I feel like you put those foxes there...

 

7. Yeah, 63" Galants are enormous.

 

8. LOOOOL. Unfortunately I didn't get to see that at 5:00 or so yesterday morning when I was there.

 

9. Smart TV...meh. They aren't that great as of now. Honestly, I would just get the "dumb" TV counterparts as Smart TV software and such that's integrated isn't the best, and you can always get something like a Roku or Google TV set and then just connect it.

Ikea is very pricey sometimes though

Hartford

 

They had those. They have fake TV's and fake Laptops and Dekstop and speakers to outfit the rooms

 

They are very meh but its cool to play around with it.

 

Teh thing is, all good HDTV's these days come with online options or access. It came with it so why not. Very slow and hard to use either way. I expected it to be so. LG's is much easier and better to use imo

Funny how in the whole of Connecticut there is only one Ikea. Connecticut is a third of the size of the Netherlands, yet there are 12 Ikeas.

There are 38 Ikeas in the US, 12 in the NL. Meaning our Ikea density is 73 times as high!
