man i remember really wanting to learn japanese back in my teens because i really wanted to read an unscaned weird mecha manga called kakugo no susume. i never followed through.
my advice to you if you want to learn it; you better have a good reason to dedicate yourself to it. otherwise you're gonna drop it as soon as it gets tedious.
In my experience it's the complete opposite: only the people who have "stupid" reasons like wanting to learn Japanese because of anime or vidya eventually become fluent in the language. People who try to learn a second language because they're forced in school/college, or because they think it will look good on the resume never get anywhere.
this blog written by one of the mangastream translators talks about this subject. its very informative, i suggest you guys read it.
essentially what you described are people who are intrinsically motivated to learn the language, they're interested in it and find it enjoyable to learn.



I wanted to learn japanese for no reason at all, I started looking at pages on the internet that taught it, youtube lessons, and so on. I learned both kanas and very few kanjis, but I'm far from fluent. I still want to learn but just simple "wanting to learn" is not helping, I guess if I had a schedule and dedicated myself a bit more I'd be a lot better. Still can read one thing or another though when I come across the kanas. There was a "language school" (not sure if there is a right name for it) near home but it was too expensive, and since Byakko said he is self taught, I think I'll try to dedicate myself on it again.

Oh, why must I tell 'em again?
What must I tell 'em, my friend?
That we are born into sin
And we are worshiping murderers
Nothing but evil duplicitous men
I know you heard of 'em all
We should just murder 'em all
We should just murder and ball
We dance on the ruins we looting from all of they palace's walls

It’s interesting you say this as my gf was telling me all about it, she went last year. How clean and organized it is. I’d never fear anything negative happening ie racism etc. It’s way worse over here tbh.
I've heard some horror stories, but generally it's from people who have actually moved there and are not just visiting short-term as a tourist. It's definitely a different experience when compared to the US or elsewhere, but it does still exist.

asian folks are hella racist , depending where you at of course but we won't come at you and be rude,
we'll just gawk and leer at you especially if you're black or a lanky white dude like you're a exotic animal in a zoo.
and we're racist towards each other except we don't really mind it , not that we don't care but we don't take slurs and insults seriously like westerners do. well back then we don't but now i see the reactions are very similar to americans. probably influence of media and western culture.

mainlanders call us southerns sea dogs we call them saliva droolers cause they spit all over the place,  and it's kinda true my grandfather likes to spit alot even at the dinner table.
it's amusing to learn what countries have the most creative insults against each other. asian servers games especially if it's a team game like dota or csgo you'd be frustrated if you just want to play a game and you got teamed up with indonesians and malaysians , it's ridiculous at how every game i played if there's both of them in one team they always , always fight and insult each other. it doesn't matter if your team is winning or losing they'd find whatever excuse to insult each other.

and then there's korea and japan , malaysia and indonesia it's more of a sibling rivalry thing but japan and korea oh man that's where you see real shit goes down when those two are each other's throat.

c'mon, I'm indonesian partly chinese , i don't even insult my cat
depending on your age group and folks you hang around with of course
normal educated grown up indonesian don't swear much , unless you hang around with becak drivers, construction workers, truck drivers or group of early teenagers,  even when they do then there is probably just what equivalent to shit, body parts ( head, face) and animal names (mostly dog or monkey) and combination of those bodypart and animal   still you'll never hear any insult at the level of motherfucker. not verbally, dunno if in text since I'm probably a generation too old ...  :P

kontol!!! that's what i always hear from indonesians.

very rare to see indonesians and malaysians in person , most foreigners i meet and talk to that aren't related to me are russians , vietnamese , koreans too many fucking koreans here. even my editor way back in college was korean like for 4 years i didn't even knew she was a foreigner. even up north where i grew up tons of korean workers. and korean men are rowdy bunch the women are ok but the men they are loud most of the time you'll see a drunk korean man getting kicked out of a bar or hotels. or you see them sleeping on public sheds.

2 years for Chinese economy to collapse. And the world can't do anything with the Brazilian forest fires right now. Why am I still somehow optimistic?




even my editor way back in college was korean like for 4 years i didn't even knew she was a foreigner.

Did you had the same problem my friend (she worked temporarily as an english tutor for korean kids) had with their culture being indirect?

no she's a full korean she just have a knack at copying accents (she sounds like kris aquino when she's speaking filipino) ,
nad for some reason I didn't saw her interact with other korean students. either she's with her gay friends or bullying vietnamese students in her spare time.

idk if that's real though , i mean yeah the bubble will burst at some point but it's not gonna push back china's economy. it'll drastically slow it down. just like japan back in the 90's.

Do you mean she's a lesbian or she prefers hanging out with local gays here?

I'm more worried by the fact the criminal underworld are pulling a lot strings lately like those forest fires in Brazil.

yeah and plus didn't they got lands legally in africa or some shit like that, they would lend you money and if you couldn't pay or breach any agreement they'd forcefully "rent" in your lands.

no , she studied here,  she was our head editor for the campus paper worked there as a photographer cause nobody wanted to buy their own fucking camera ,
her father works for a huge korean shipping company in bataan. there's a lot of koreans there like streets signs are in korean you would be lost if you can't read korean. rich koreans btw not the poor fuckers you see in españa around the university belt.

obviously early teenagers, it think it is somekind of rough javanese language for dick, probably, not hearing that word spoken verbally anywhere not even on construction sites, maybe would hear it more from elementary and junior high schoolers,
since indonesia is multi cultural and ethnic, depending on from what ethnic group you meet, I asume you're philipino, when you meet indonesian person from northern sulawesi you might think they look philipino, if you meet one from java then they are browner with bigger eye and rounder/ softer feature on face, or if you meet one from eastern regions then they are dark skinned with curly hair with sharper face if you meet one from papua still dark skinned and curly hair but with very flared nostril and brow ridge, if you meet one from sumatera, they look malaysian or slightly arab, or you may meet chinese indonesian, or mixed.

I'd like to know a good alternative for a free/cheap image host. I've been using cubeupload, but they have been less than reliable.

Recently got a message from them e-begging. No threats like that or anything.

I never liked photobucket tbh. I used tinypic for a while and then moved to imgur, by far the best image host website until now.

Edit: Do I need to mention that ugly watermark photobucket put in all images? That's already a good reason to not use it.

if i remember correctly you can't , they locked it up on a pay wall.

i would gladly pay photobucket if they didn't pull any stuns like the ones they did years ago and better service. imgur does provide better and they're free.

I used to use Imageshack, but then they figured it'd be better to mandate people to go premium and remove access to the images on free accounts, so I switched to Imgur. I used Postimage for direct Wii U screenshot uploading in the past too, as well as during that brief period when Imgur had blocked embeds on this site.
