"Ohio!" (good morning)
I'm intruged to learn more, so I found a pretty good beginners site. If anyone else is interested check out this http://learn-japanese-online.com/introduction.html
I'm glad there's a place for Japanese people to learn such common American words as "harakiri" and "samurai."
These things were a daily occurrence when I was living in China. The majority of translated signs have errors...many of which are inadvertently hilarious.
LOL! That site is hilarious!
When reading them, do you naturally do it in a Japanese accent, or is that just me?
My mate did that aswell, in IT this morning was teaching him from a site my daily haul of 'hello, goodby, goodmorning and I'm hungry' and every time he read it form the page he screamed it in a simpsons style steretpye of the Japanese
My brother was telling me about a place in Japan where the sell substances that are not yet illegal (ie legal drugs). But they have a sign that says, "Regal Drugs."
Wow!! God comes as coffee now!!
Clutch. So clutch.
This thread cannot go by without me posting my potty directions that were in the hotel room I stayed in while I was traveling in Thailand. I've posted it before but you can never see this one too many times.
If I had a better memory I could go on and on about the hilarious jacked up signs that I saw in China.
At one park there was a sign directing you to "Deer Fart."
Stationery and cards always made for a good laugh too. They love sending each other things with english on them. I went to a nicer restaurant and they gave each customer stationery. Mine had english writing on it that said "What's up? Why you look so sad? Letsmile look so happy!!" That's not even the best of the stationery I saw but it's the only one I can remember. I also saw lots of "No Spitting" signs (which were rarely adhered to by the locals).
Some of the DVD's I saw for sale included "Trainsporting," "Bridget Jones's Dialy," and "Fout Welling and a Funetal" (I'll translate the last one - "Four Weddings and a Funeral.").
Once again...all this is just the tip of the iceberg.
For those of you who understand electrical wiring schematics and components:
What the heck is a demaltiplexer? And why does it have a connection with a D Frip Frop?
So THAT's why I didn't do so well in Electronics last year...all my diagrams contained obscure components like Flip Flops and demultiplexors...
