    Hey all!
    So, in my few years on this forum, I've noticed a lot of traditions in the local vocab and had this idea that we should compile all our phrases and what not in a thread. So, let's start!
    Talking about the badassery of Maki when it comes to hot Asians, relationships, and..... Well, everything else.
    Username.. Nuff said.
