    I am talking of the people that attend them. To me that is saying they are either incapable, or not open to dealing with people outside of their culture. I mean, isn't being open to things part of college?

    Also, if some college posted demographic information and it showed all whites there they would be outrage and the people attending accused of racism

    They're also not very good schools in general. Some of them are really bad, like 850 average SAT total.

    I hear the marching band programs are excellent though.

    I like to think that its not that Asians just hang around each other, it's that everyone else fear their kungfu and karate and muay thai and taekwondo.

    These particular parents were simply crass and inconsiderate, especially the guy. I tried to understand the situation with the baby, but to brush your teeth in public, and then walk up and down the aisle while doing so demonstrates that you are a complete moron.

    listening to the radio, I just don't understand why people think its a good idea to call a dj and ask for advise on how to fucking run their lives and for these dj's to think they're qualified to give advise... I mean, these people's qualifications for their jobs is: a. speak fluently and clearly, and b. have enough brain matter to press "play".

    She seems to be another arty farty 'alternative' type - the type who you would expect to be at a Socialist Alternative rally. And I am mostly right. She joined the communist party in college... and has an arty farty 'partner' with a stupid beard.

    Why in Japanese there has to be different ways to count objects based on their shape.

    Not just shape, there are different counters for different types of things as well and the counter may change depending on the actual number. Also the word for the number may change depending on the industry it is being used in.


    For example,

    1 animal ip-piki

    2 animals ni-hiki

    3 animals san-biki

    4 animals yon-hiki

    5 animals go-hiki

    6 animals rop-piki

    7 animals shichi-hiki (nana-hiki)

    8 animals hap-piki

    9 animals kyuu-hiki

    10 animals jup-piki


    Base form of some other counters

    hon Long, cylindrical things

    mai  Flat things like paper

    ko general small objects

    hai Liquid in containers

    satsu  Books

    kai The floor of a building

    There are more.
