SP大神的文章最近的文章都好有营养!超赞的! 都是直译的锅啊(/.\)我写日语的时候也常常不小心冒犯别人。有些东西一直译就跪了。譬如说,中文日文各30分钟的语言交换,对方跟我客气,说今天日语学习材料很多,我们可以说一整个小时日语,然后我想说,I am totally fin...

日语是跳过骂生殖器的幼齿阶段,直接进入骂了你以后半分钟你才反应过来被骂了……很痛的……然后说日语很烦……有的时候你只是想跟人客气,可是别人觉得你生气了……怎么把握说话尺度巨巨巨巨巨麻烦…… 当然除了バカ还有アホ、クズ(垃圾)、デブ(胖子)、ブス(丑逼)、デブス(胖子+...

我去过美国东部的康涅狄格,波士顿和匹兹堡找同学玩儿,没怎么看到过挂国旗的.在科罗拉多确实不少. 法国有些地方也会挂国旗,尤其是恐怖袭击之后.意大利没见过.西班牙的加泰罗尼亚地区(现在公投独立),区旗随处可见.
