Sorry the correction took longer than I said. I got too busy and didn't have time to do it. I think that's accurate. Here in t...

Hmm, interesting theory, but... I can't say I entirely agree. For one thing, why are we assuming you can only have one box? Once y...

I think many Americans feel the same way about holidays like Christmas and Valentine’s Day.

Hmm, strange answer. But... I think this depends on how you define "sense of language," doesn't it? I mean... I think you D...

Hmm, I definitely have to work on my focus. ^^; I tend to try to do a million things at once... I guess even relatively short bouts of i...

A lot of people are really worried about AI taking over jobs, too, though, aren't they? I thought that was a popular opinion. In any ...

One aspect of "liberation from the self" is learning to understand other people's perspectives and thought patterns. Probab...

I've heard that some crosswalk buttons really do work, though. I guess it depends on whether the traffic lights at that particular in...

We spoke about this before I believe. I believe the thinking is similar to Buddhism. Transcending yourself and human society is the lib...

A very interesting thought! The concept of "liberation from the self" sounds very Buddhist in a way

Very interesting. I think I could use more placebos in my life ;)

You said "Placebo"? I quite like their song "Pure Morning". It has the line "A friend in need's a friend ...

I don't even think of Christmas as a religious holiday. I'm super not-Christian, but I like Christmas because I can hang out with...

Japan's not the only one! I guess many non-Christians celebrate Christmas. My entire family are not Christians either, but we've ...
Dec 23, 2018 12:58 artboy598 made 16 corrections for Cities or Countrysides
I agree especially with the Einstein quote. I guess the expression “the grass is always greener” comes to mind when I read your entry.
Dec 23, 2018 04:01 Lynkusu made 19 corrections for Cities or Countrysides
I've heard that there are city kids who think milk is produced in a factory or something, not from cows. As a country kid, that's...

I would say most people don't think about what they share. There are so many stupid pictures and quotes shared on social media like F...

I tried hard to resist, but the face of Trump kept popping up in my head while I read your post.

To truly feel fulfillment, I think it’s essential that you have time to appreciate what you have done. If you’re forced to get things don...

Great entry. I didn’t write many comments because I think they’re self explanatory for the most part. Yeah, I think we’re similar in tha...
Nov 20, 2018 08:26 taka_from_tokyo commented on Is Convenience Awesome?
Having things done quickly doesn’t always give us happiness or the feelings of fulfillment. People know it. That’s why people love challe...

I agree. That’s why I think you’d like “One-Punch Man”. He became all-powerful like humans have in relation to the world, but he is bor...

I guess the problem is that technology evolves waaaay faster than we do. We're not evolved to the point where we can responsibly deal...

I don't necessary agree with your correlation there. It's an oversimplification, for one thing. What determines a "high"...

I think we have discussed much of that together before. :p I'll be happy to give more of my opinions if you want next time. xD

We’ve chatted a lot about it so I I don’t have to write it here ^^. Great work! Let me know if you have any questions.

I guess every language has these, but Japanese might have more than average because of the level of indirectness. Thanks for the great le...

Sep 27, 2018 05:50 そめいよしの commented on How should service be?
究極なのは、「誰かが奉仕をしますが、その受け手は奉仕を受けたことすら知らない」うえに、その奉仕をした誰か自身も奉仕をしたと思っていない状況ですね。(^_^)
Sep 26, 2018 08:25 Lynkusu made 14 corrections for How should service be?
That service ranking doesn't say anything about the actual quality of the service, though. A bottom-level service could actually be m...

Maybe posting "good" opinions like that on social media is equivalent to prayers in religions. It actually does nothing, but it...
