    if we go by location, wouldn't I be one of the closer wingmen? Something tells me if we went to a bar, nobody wins, especially not the women

    Yes!

    Still, when Icepick's misogyny saves the day, you know we're in dark times.

    Money enough for a few Midori Sours and the ol' trusty ziplock bag of roofies is all the Japanese you'll need to know, not that you needed any more advice on roofies and spiking a girl's drink. You practically wrote the book! So look at it this way, even Michael Jordan practiced. All the greats do.

    1/3 ain't bad, WickedLiquid. Oh wait, yes it is. We are no longer friends! +1 coin for getting two 'n's in konnichiwa, though.

    Matt, I will teach you the basics! I want to help you acquire life Achievements! I know how much of a collector you are. ;)

    What you want is moshi moshi, and sayounara. Thank you. ~I~ will take your money now.

    Don't forget Ohayou Gozaimasu!



    And I just exhausted my knowledge of the Japanese language.

    Pu-leeeeease. I know stuff like that. (stuff that's in anime all the time!)

    I need sentences...like what the FUCK DID DAN JUST SAY?! Envy.

    I actually bought a travel Japanese translation book at a bookshop today, and I skimmed through the sentence structures. It is complicated stuff, I definitely need to be taught as opposed to learning on my own.

    watashi wa no namae wa Matt desu!

    Got the first page down to a tee people ;)

    Rosetta Stone Japanese is actually really good.

    I was able to learn enough to say a few things to my neighbors who were Japanese students going to university. Really helped to because one of them really wasn't good at English. So we got to be bad at languages together :lol:

    Then they graduated and I quit trying :cry:

    I don't look things up, I go with my gut. When all else fails, trust the gut. And we are still friends unfortunately, I'm afraid you signed a 2 year contract.

    How aboot I hold the door open for you eh?

    Oh you meant Japanese sentences? Yes you'll need to know how to say "WTF was that??? "

    "Like, you wanna speak Japanese?"
    Watashi no namae wa Matt desu.
    "wa" or the "ha" character is a subject marker, so you only need one. "no" is the possessive modifier, so you need it between "watashi" and "namae"
    I'll PM you. renshuu shimashou ka?

    I've heard great things about all the Rosetta Stone programs actually. Never tried one myself... unless... you can find... language learning programs... online.

    This is now my favourite thread.

    But you're either going to have to move to Canada, or give me the money, Dan! Matt needs a Canadian on the scene. 8)
