Japanese cultural perceptions and stereotypes of Americans. [Aug. 10th, 2007|05:50 am]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[njyoder]
This concerns both language and aesthetics in animation, as well as stereotypes and a few miscellaneous questions.

I'm wondering what are the Japanese counterparts to the following?

1. Americans speaking mock "Southeast Asian Languages." This ranges from saying something like "ching chong ding dong" (like in racist stereotypes) to imitations intended to actually sound like the language even though it's complete gibberish.

2. Engrish (as in poorly written English by Japanese people).

3. Aesthetic caricatures/stereotypes using slanted eyes, two big buck teeth, short cut hair, etc.. [I've only noticed blond hair and rosey cheeks.]

4. Penis length related stereotypes.

Other questions:

5. What could "vegetable man/men" mean in a translation of anime in reference to a a mysterious group of people kidnapping an ally in a covert-ops fashion? I saw it said much in reference to when a black man was also shown, could this be a racial stereotype?

6. What interesting racial and [anti-]nationalistic stereotypes are there of Americans by Japanese?

7. When variations of a the spoken form of words are made, how are they created in written form in Japanese? Do they ever create new non-phonetic represntations of them? How would they transcribe things like music lyrics where lots of slang would be used?

Cross-posted to various communities.

1. Can I get student loans that don't pay for tuition specifically, which I already have covered, but would take care of my living expenses (rent, utilities, car payment, asthma meds, groceries, etc) for the 2 years that I will be in college? I'd rather focus on finishing school ASAP than worrying about a shitty job and bills. Any info or advice about this would be appreciated. P.S. My credit sucks, if that makes a difference.

2. My friend went to the doctor and was apparently told that her red blood cells are smaller than they're supposed to be so they're not carrying oxygen through her body like they should. Is this a real thing? It's probably obvious, I'd just never heard of that particular situation before.

3. Whatcha doin' this weekend?

The consensus belief is that if you accept Jesus into your life then you're pretty much guaranteed to get into Heaven. At one time or another I've heard someone or other say the following stuff:
  • If you don't accept Jesus as your lord & savior you're going to Hell.

  • The Jews rejected Jesus and they will all burn in Hell.

  • Everyone that died before Jesus was born is in Hell.

  • Everyone that died before Jesus was born were granted amnesty and are in Heaven.

  • People that practice magic are trying to steal the power of God and will burn in Hell.

Do you agree with any of this stuff?

Hi TQC!

Part of my job responsibilities involve answering and directing calls.  There is this one woman who calls for someone in the office 17 times a day.  The person she wants to speak to does not want to speak to her, so her calls are never returned.  But she keeps calling.  Even when I tell her the person isn't in the office.  And if I transfer her to the other person's voicemail without her knowing it is going to voicemail, she'll call back immediately and ask of the person is in the office.

I want to tell her to stop wasting my time and stop calling me, but obviously I can't do that.  I also can't tell her that the person she wants will never speak to her.  What would you do to make this annoying lady get the point and stop calling?

Edit:  I should have phrased differently.  I'm not looking for advice!  I just want to know what you would do.  I fail at TQC.

1. I move in to college tomorrow morning - leaving my house around 8.30. Is there anything super-special I should do on my last day home?

2. I was started on antidepressants earlier this week, and my therapist said to switch to two pills a day from one in "four to seven days". Four days lands me right on Saturday - my first ever day on college soil. Is it the best idea to up my dosage then, or should I wait? (my medication tends to make me sleepy - I'm not so sure what two will do).

3. For those of you who are college students who loves books as much as I do - do you bring any "pleasure reading" books with you to campus, or is it fruitless because there's just no time?

4. What brand of deodorant do you wear?

How would one attach carpeting to a cement wall? I looked on google, but all I got was results for a children's story.

I drum, and need to carpet the corner walls and ceiling of my basement to help drown out the sound. I can staple-gun the carpet into the wooden ceiling, but I need something removable, safe and non-destructive. So far, I've tried duct tape, and it worked for about 2 days. Then, I came home from a long weekend to find my drum set draped in carpet and duct tape.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Girls, when you're at a show, do you throw away any and all concern for personal space?

Guys, last night while up front at the Ween show, some really hot girl kept dancing and trying to push me back away. Normally this is the nature of being up front. But then she gave up and moved beside me, kept dancing, then bumped into me purposefully and shot me a look straight in the eyes. I smiled at her and ignored her for my own reasons, then she did it again so I ignored her again. God, I swear though, when she was standing in front of me and pushing me back into other people, every time her head tilted and her hair ended up in my face, it was painful. She had a great head of hair.

What would you have done?

1) If you eat very little in a day, does your stomach feel really odd for a few days afterwards? What causes that?

2) Do you ever forget to eat? Why?

3) If you go to shows, do you stand back and enjoy, or do you get right up there in the pit/happybouncyplace(depending on your music genre)?

4) What is the weirdest sunburn you have ever gotten(placement, pattern, etc)? How did you get it?

5) Do you live in fear of a ceiling fan(especially one over your bed) falling down on top of you?

6) What do you smell like, currently?




1) Mine does, it feels like gut rot. It happened yesterday when I didn't eat all day at the shows, and always after a hangover when I can't bring myself to eat.

2) Very rarely. Yesterday I just was too busy running from stage to stage to catch all my favorite bands. All I had to eat was a bagel in the morning, and a ramen before bed.

3) I usually stand back unless its one of my REALLY super favorites.

4) I currently have an odd triangle on my chest, and stripes on my shoulders. I figure its from fidgeting and wearing bags.

5) Yes ;_;

6) Pot, cigarettes, beer, sweat, and sunblock. I need a shower badly.

Help me?!

1- We're getting a used car, what kind of questions should I ask the owner?
2- My husband is rather tall (6'5) and most of his height is in his legs, does car (or truck, or whatever) brand make a difference in leg room? Or does it just matter the make (model)? I really have no clue. :(
3- What is the ugliest car you have ever seen? I am determined to have the ugliest car in the world, so no one steals it! I need ideas. ;)

It could be argued that part of the reason I'm so wonky is that I was raised as much by my parents as I was Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Roadrunner, Wile E. Coyote, Speedy Gonzales, Sylvester, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Taz, Yosimite Sam, etc. Basically you get the idea. Even my parents periodically see me as a living toon.

However, every family has one member that is just a bit funny. That one they can't quite draw a bead on. Which brings me to my question...

1. I have my dad's old camcorder. (Probably dates from the early 90's. Uses those mini cassette tapes.) I would like connect it to my computer so I can burn a bunch of stuff for my brothers/sister/stempmom now that he is gone. However, while the thing worked fine last year, it doesn't now. I can fast forward and rewind, but as soon as I play, it plays for .5 seconds and then stops. Having some experience with fixing broken VCRs, it leads me to believe that the eye part is dirty.

How in the heck do I clean it? I looked online for a manual, but I can only get one from England after paying a lot of money.

2. I have a friend who has a Watara Supervision and some games. Is this actually worth anything?

gift for teen girl going off to college? [Aug. 10th, 2007|04:04 pm]

Boring question, I know, but:

You are a 17 year old girl going off to college in California. You are very bright and into theatre.

What would you like you receive as a small momento-typed keepsake gift from your dad?

You have recently made contact with each other after being kept away from him for years due to problems between your divorced parents.

I was thinking about an engraved picture frame or nice decorative box to store special items in, but could use additional suggestions.

Thanks in advance for any ideas you might have! I'm not a teenage girl, so thought some input might be useful!

Insect Bites on Your Face [Aug. 10th, 2007|04:19 pm]

[schitzoferret]
[mood |weirdweird]

I got bit by an insect the other day on my mouth. I'm allergic to anything that bites. So my lips swelled up like Angelina Jolie’s. That’s pretty normal whenever I get bit by something. BUT the itching was so intense that I kept messing with my lower lip by the bite so much that I broke the skin on my lip open a little bit.  The swelling went down immediately, but now I have a chapped lip/ blister kind of thing going on.

 

A>So what do I put on it that will heal the lip and not make the bug bite infected?

B>Or should I just go and try to find a weekend clinic thing?

 

Note: I’m poor and hope someone is creative in coming up with something to put on it.

    4) Have you ever had plastic surgery of any kind? What did you have done, how much did it cost, did you have to travel far to get there?

    5) Is there a procedure you'd like to get done? Not just like "oh that'd be nice" but like, seriously if you had the money and some time to take off for recovery, you'd go do it?

    Hello Everybody!

     

    I just got hired for a new job as a receptionist. The hours they hired me for are 9 to 4 Monday through Friday, which I am THRILLED about.

     

    For the past 2 weeks I have been working with a great woman who has been training me. During the summer they hire some extra college students for help. The woman who has been helping me switched her hours which were originally afternoon to close, to the morning so she could help train me.

     

    Suddenly she decided that she likes morning and she wants me to take the late shift.

     

    Infuriated that she would suddenly decide to change her mind at the last minute I called the owner of the company. He agreed that they hired me for these hours and that I deserve them. Yet this woman who has been with the company for a very long time is great and they really like her. And I’m the type of person who wants everybody to be happy and who doesn’t want any enemies. He assured me that they would try to work something out.

     

    What do you think about this? Risk having an enemy or get taken advantage of??

    I hate computers!!!

    So far, every computer I've bought seems to have some sort of problem.

    A couple of months ago, I bought a MacBook, and everything was fine with it, about 3 months ago every single time I unplug it from the power adaptor, the computer shuts off. I went to the support site, and it looks like a lot of people have this problem. The computer works fine if it's connected to the adaptor, but if I cant take it anywhere, then I would have bought a desktop instead. Does anyone know what I can do? it's driving me insane, I've tried taking the battery out for a few minutes and everything, and still nothing. The computer even shows the icon of a fully charged battery, so I doubt it's the battery that has a problem.

    Have you ever seen Scary Movie 4, Tears Of Kali, One Missed Call, or The Dark? Those are on my movies for the next day, and so far, Tears of Kali looks really stupid.

    Am I a bad person for renting The Dark only because it has Sean Bean and Maria Bello in it? I thought so.

    1. What is the most serious injury you can sport while in a club and not look stupid? Obviously if you're on crutches and still trying to hit on the ladies, you're probably going to get a few WTF, GO HOME looks. But what about, say, a broken hand? A broken finger? An eye patch?

    What about in a bar?

    2. Okay, so my neighbours have really, really loud sex at all hours of the day and to be honest, it makes me feel kind of uncomfortable. Yes, they're in the privacy of their own home but I am tired of having to listen to it, especially since I kind of hate them. I'll admit that if it were loud music or a TV, I'd probably be less inclined to complain. So... can I talk to them or to the concierge about it? Or should just suck it up and deal with it? How likely are you to complain in a similar situation? Or if your neighbour asked you to keep it down, would you try and comply or tell her too bad because you ARE in your own home?

    Also: does this make me a prude?
