@matigo I grew up with both systems but still find it difficult. And Japanese is now engraved on my mind in a combination of letters and very very few characters. For example:

@matigo ? The Japanese language is interesting. My younger sister is capable of using it like natives do. Wish I could speak it too. Difficult like hell, though.

China wants to "retranslate" and "annotate" the Bible to establish a "correct understanding" of Christianity in the Chinese context.

Oh, Xisus Christ!

@matigo isn’t it eh-tō-bee-kō in Japanese? The silent “ke” remains silent, doesn’t it? ??

@matigo if they have not downloaded this track and kept a copy on the phone or hard drive, then no. ? But if they bought a physical album, by no means do they lose any track.

Do What U Want, the 7th track on Lady Gaga’s 2013 studio album ARTPOP, has been removed from Apple Music and the iTunes Store among other online music services due to recent allegations of sexual misconduct of R. Kelly, the guest performer and co-writer of the song.

This is the remix to conviction

@matigo a driving school in my vicinity teaches students not to drive under the influence. Ironically, next to the driving school is a shop selling cannabis.

@matigo sounds like I’d need a refugee camp somewhere outside Canada in the future. True that lefties are gravely impacting these communities.
