Ask an American.

1 :merkin ◆BeSm0ofY92 :2006/07/03(月) 13:02:35
It's a long weekend for me, and there's a lack of English language text
on the English board - so!

Ask me anything, and I'll try to answer as best I can.
Note that you must ask in English - my Japanese is awful.

we might go see fireworks later.

Hi,
I want to know about my friend's name.
He is Richard and his US friends call him Dick.
Why the nickname of Richard is Dick?
Please explain.

As it happens, I'm an american _and_ a cunning linguist*.
In the 12th and 13th centuries, they had rhyming nicknames:
Rich -> Hitch
Rick -> Dick
(source: http://www.straightdope.com/mailbag/mdick.html -
which also explains where "dick" for "penis" came from.)

* 'cunning linguist' sounds a lot like 'cunnilingus'.

Hi,merkin.
Do you like the males or females?
In this connection,I am a Japanese man,but I like the males.

Can I be my boyfriend?
I hope that you teach me English as my personal teacher and boyfriend.

Bye-bye,merkin.

Hi,merkin.
As here is a BBS in japan,you'd better of talk in Japanese.
All persons in Japan must speak it.

If you want to speak in English,you have to go back to your country.

The Japanese are into “killing the competition”.

The small island culture made them into vicious people who like to subjugate others by force.

Survival of the fittest.

Always eager to show that they are the best.

Very difficult people to get along, unless you have the upper hand.

If they see you are stronger, they will bend over backward and be your servants.

Let's talk about a Japanese auther Yukio Misima with me.

Have you ever red his works?

(starting at the end...)
in English, rhyming is always [consonant][something] -> [another consonant][something]
So, Dick rhymes with Rick, but Reck does not rhyme with Rick.

I can't say I've read any of his works; he's primarily known in the US as being
"the crazy author who committed seppuku but couldn't finish it." I'd say the
best-known Japanese author right now is Murakami Haruki. (I've liked what I've
read from him.)

>>61
Yeah, pretty frequently, actually. There's a little grocery store by my house -
Nijiya Market - where I overhear people speaking to each other in Japanese.
It's not a big deal here to speak to somebody in a foreign language.

>>79
thank you for your sentiment. One of the reasons I posted this in the first place was to
see what kind of reactions I got; I was a little surprised that the "American go home" took
so long to show up.

>>64
CM is 'music video', right? I don't see anything on youtube, so I can't help you out. Sorry.

>>39
I don't like Bush, either. I think he's done more things to fuck up this country than anyone
in the past hundred years. He makes Americans look foolish, greedy, and powerhungry to the
rest of the world. I don't know why people voted for him the first time, and the only explanation
for his reelection is "he cheated".

What's worse in some ways is that I know some people who, when they go overseas, pretend to not be
American because they're embarrassed. That just reinforces the bad opinions people get.

For the most part, they haven't really cared. This is mostly because the news here
said the missiles only flew a short distance. Non-American sources, though, have
said the test was much more successful. Some people think that the American government
is trying to downplay it, and make Kim Jung Il look like even more of a raving loon
than he already is.

to me, either.

I've been way too busy. I'm visiting Tokyo in three and a half weeks to go

>>93
So you're coming to Japan.
No need to worry about your Japanese. As long as you put です or ます
at the end of whatever you'd say, you probably won't offend anyone.
Actually, you might be treated more nicely when you are not that fluent.
Just a tip. Hope you have fun while you're here.

99 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/07/12(水) 07:28:19

Nope, because I don't think I'd be able to hit anybody.

>>97
Yes, I do!

>>98
Yeah, I've been told that playing up the "Stupid American" thing can get you
treated better. "You can use hashi? Ooooh!" The thing is, I want to experience
what the people who live there do for fun, do in daily lives, etc - and not
hang around all the expat areas. If I wanted to be around 馬鹿愛人, I'd stay
at home.

>>100
oops. I'm sure you just understated your Japanese. I'm not underestimating your
skills but just saying some people would like it when non-native speakers try to
get their points across in Japanese even if it's not perfect, maybe because we
know how so difficult it is for Japanese to master English that we assume vice versa.
When you show some understanding of our language, which is what I suppose you already
have, you are more likely to be treated with some respect and kindness in return.
You might be even treated to a nice sushi meal. That's how it could go. ;)

Hi, Merkin.

There was a movie called "The Color of Money" starring Tom Cruise.
Someone asked about it on this board.
What does the color of money mean?
Thanks.

112 :bernardo:2006/07/13(木) 15:13:39
Hi! merkin!

I have one question.

Why do you call 下院 House of Representative?
In Japanese, House of Representative means 衆議院。
(more like the senate).

113 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/07/13(木) 15:31:05
Merkin, do you watch whose line is it anyway?



114 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/07/14(金) 03:33:08
>>111
You know, I don't have any idea. Could be the secondary meanings of color, like 'semblance' or 'environment'.

>>113
I've seen both the original British version and the US one; I like the British one better, as I enjoy its comedians more.


115 :merkin ◆BeSm0ofY92 :2006/07/14(金) 04:46:42
Ugh, forgot to sign >>114.

>>112
It's partially a functional difference, partially semantic.
The US House of Representatives is not 'lower' than the Senate; the two are
roughly equal - unlike the 衆議院 and 参議院, the Senate doesn't have anything
the House can't block, and the other way around, too.

The semantic part: Americans (claim, at least) they don't like having people -
or branches of government - be superior to others. When the Constitution was

set things up so that the various parts of government would be roughly equal
with each other. The usual phrase in English is "checks and balances".

Hello everybody! I'm an American

123 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/10/09(月) 13:01:10
mate, this is the kinda board i was lookin for, where everyone uses English.

well then I have a question merkin. my major in uni is art history and Ive just encountered the word 'surrealism'.
Could you explain me what it means?

124 :k-tan ◆teb9WQfPoU :2006/10/09(月) 13:28:30
>>123
I'm not an American (not even in the sense Arrogant Worms sang about),
however I can try to explain the word to you...

What dictionary.com says:
http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=surrealism
> a style of art and literature developed principally in the 20th
> century, stressing the subconscious or nonrational significance of
> imagery arrived at by automatism or the exploitation of chance
> effects, unexpected juxtapositions, etc.

Something that is surreal is similar to the kind of distorted reality
that you can encounter in dreams, warped and unreal, familiar yet
different in a(n often lucid yet for our reality) "wrong" way.
Surrealism is the movement/style that bases itself on that.

And as a art major, you probably would find the following interesting:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surrealism#Surrealism_in_visual_arts
Reading from the start of the document may be quite interesting as well:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surrealism

125 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/10/09(月) 13:37:50
the word "surrealism" gives some clue to its meaning.
Sur is super in French, realism means to recognize a true nature of
an object and express it in a practical manner. Surrealists
express things in a supernatural (beyond reality) way.

I've heard that it's considered to be a low rank talent if they are
on CF in US.

But do you know that top movie stars appear on CF on Japanese
TV? Cameron Diaz now appears in cell phone carrer's CF. Jenifer Ropez
on Shampoo CF now here in Japan. Looking back in the past, Arnold
Shwarzneger (sp?) was on instant noodles maker's CF dansing with
kettle in hands.

Silvester Stalone was on Ham company's CF. Reonard De Caprio was on
Card campany and automobile manufacturer's CF. Kevin Kostner on
Beverage (coffee) company's CF, Brad Pitt on Japanese Jeans and
automobile, beverage company's CF. Meg Rian, Richard Giar other top class movie
stars are on CF for Japanese audience.

You can check them here.http://www.japander.com/japander/index.htm
Or at youtube.

De Caprio http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Qfe-8iNLR4
Meg Ryan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jnlgd71UKiQ

They intended to earn extra money but seems like they don't like it
if people in US have chances to see them on Japanese CF.
So some of their lawyers protest against youtube or Japander.

Do you know that they are on Japanese commercial films?

You mean TV Ad? That's usually referred to as a commercial.

Not many people know that; but it's not uncommon for a star to endorse
(Basically, show up and talk for big cash) a product on TV. On the otherhand,
some actors are really low class.

Like, my dad. He's appeared in some TV commercials, usually only as an
actor though. He did the voice for a TV network ad, but it was for mexico.

Eh, well it doesn't really work well for him. He's pretty poor, he barely
scrapes by. I lived with him for about 7months, he really has no idea how to
spend his money. When he has a good paying job, he buys a lot of stuff,
when he has trouble finding a job he goes hungry or has his parents give him
money. He never pays child support like he said he would when my parents got
divorced. If my mom took him to court for it, we could very easily win
upwards of 25-30,000$ US. That's 3,538,820 Yen. I could get a nice car with
that much money... or half of a small house! Or pay an apartment for about
60 months...

When I lived with him, he didn't buy me anything except food. My mom
still had to pay for everything. Even for my birthday he didn't get me anything!
At least mom got me The Black Mages 1&2 ^^

He's really an idiot though.. he wouldn't let me talk to my friends
over the internet (Not on a PC... there was only one PC, it was 5 years old,
it didn't have internet access, and he *still* wouldn't let me use it..
even though i'm far better at PCs than he is), and I was just using my cellphone.
Of course, I took my cellphone to school and I had it in my room at night;
so i'd talk to friends anyway. Using emails on my cellphone...I'd sometimes
stay up to 2-3 in the morning, make him think i'm sleeping, and trade emails
with an Austrailian friend of mine. Or i'd message people on the bus to and
from school.

>>157
Haha, no.

Depends on the person. I know lots of people who first had sex when

When Commofotr Perry came to Uraga(?) for the first time,
Japanese locals wanted to make fun of them and they would throw
tons of magazines full of dirty pictures, which took form of
Ukiyoe, Perry was really annoyed because he was from Victorian
period and didn't want their men to get distracted by the Japanese
style of obscenity.

I'm not sure if this story was real but I read it somewhere.
I think Japanese are known for being less shameful about it...

Because of the Christian religion.

173 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/11(土) 08:24:41
>>172
This is partially true. Chrisitian morality, for good or bad,
has and is a great influence on all Western cultures. And
Christianity does teach that sex before marriage, or any sex
not done for the purpose of procreation, is sinful.

Victorian ethics and morality sprang from the idea that a man
of proper breeding and high social ranking should rise above
his animalistic behavior and desires like having sex for
pleasure. This mindset continued for much of the 18th
century. In the U.S., beginning in the early 20th until the
late 1920's, there was a counter reaction to Victorian ideals
and a more free-wheeling attitude toward sex came about as
a new generation of people challenged the presumptions of
the older generation. Which, in itself, has happen time
and time again and tends to repeat.


174 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/11(土) 08:32:59
It tends to repeat. Yes, hippies from 50's wanted to liberate
themselves from the traditional mindset.

centre of everyone's concern, wasn't he?

175 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/11(土) 08:36:14
I'm a Japanese and I had the same thought as >>168
But the reasoning of religion is really persuasive to me while it's a little surprising.

I guess most Japanese assume Americans less shameful about sex only intuitively.
That's partly because we have been taught through our education as if Americans would always behave active, no matter what, unlike "shy" Japanese.

But I can kind of agree with you guys because majority of Japanese twenties wouldn't hesitate to talk about sex in daily life while I've seen Americans often reveal implicit shame and try to avoid talking about sex.
(I was thinking those American guys were just exceptional but that may be not true...)

176 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/11(土) 08:57:50
>>175
I can only speak for myself and my opinion is that today most
Americans are conflicted when it comes to sex as opposed to
any feelings of shame or guilt (though there's still enough
of that). I think most people want to be frank and open
about sex and not make such a big deal about, but there's
still the idea that sex is wrong somehow. Not to mention
that many people would still consider it impolite to talk
about it or that it would not be "politically correct."

177 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/11(土) 09:20:30
Probably it is not politically correct to have sex with someone professional
(prostitutes or call girls) but it seems all right to do it with your
boy/girlfriend. Talking about it too much and being exhibitionistic is a
different story.

178 :175:2006/11/11(土) 09:35:32
Oh yeah. That's right.
Maybe I was making shyness and openness mixed together and complicated.
People want to be open about sex, no doubt www
And that feeling is surpressed for a lot of reasons: political, religious, or maybe parental.

>people here tend to be really reserved about their private lives,

I haven't had many opportunities to talk with Ameican so I can't say
from my own experiences.

But I have read more than once that American people talk about their
private life when they strike a converstaion even with a total stranger.

One of the Japanese writers who point the feature of American out
wrote that she wondered why American said so personal things to her
and got puzzled.

Japanese people never talk about their personal business such as
if they got divorced or somethig like that with a total stranger.

186 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/11(土) 16:09:44
>Japanese people never talk about their personal business such as
>if they got divorced or somethig like that with a total stranger.

Who are you to say things like that categorically?  
That's stupid.
Some talk, some don't.

187 :147,148:2006/11/11(土) 16:16:18
>>186
>Some talk, some don't.

That's overstatement.

In general, we Japanese never talk about if we divorced or not
when we stirke a conversation with a stranger.

In the case of the Japanese female writer I referred to above,
she was at the airport wating for her flight when an American came
up to her and talked about her personal business on and on.



188 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/11(土) 16:36:14
I am an American, and I have to say that there definitely are people
who don't hesitate at all to tell everyone personal things about themselves.
I'm often quite surprised by how much they reveal... I personally think
it is best to keep such things to yourself unless you know the person.

189 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/11(土) 17:06:20
>>187
I'm Japanese and I'm saying that's not true.

there are lots of places you haven't been to in Japan.

190 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/11(土) 17:59:01
>>189
Whatever...

Maybe you think you live in Japan but actually you live in a diffrent country
where total strangers talk about their personal things when they meet
for the first time.

Think again where you live and if it turns out that you live in Japan,
then make an appointment with psychiatrsit.

191 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/11(土) 18:01:43
>>189
Well, "never talk about" is strong, however, in general,
Japanese are much more hesitant to talk about "divorce" than Americans, I think.

192 :merkin ◆BeSm0ofY92 :2006/11/12(日) 07:52:56

I couldn't make out the p myself - but there aren't any other words in
English that end in 'rental' - and if the ads are targeted to younger
Japanese, I can see how 'parental freedom' (i.e. freedom from your
parents) might apply.

>>185 >>187 >>189
One of the things I've been trying to learn is "what are the various
attitudes in Japan"? Japan is usually portrayed as one big monolithic
mass (i.e. everybody's the same), but that's obviously false. It's
hard to pick up on what people really think, though.

When watching SPEED GRAPHER, I found it interesting that at one point,
the US president said "It's Japan, we don't have to worry about what
the public thinks." - and I wonder if that's what Japan thinks of the US,
what Japan thinks of itself, or both.

193 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/12(日) 10:50:14

Everybody is forced to be the same because it's more efficient to run the school,
company, or the nation.
Of cource we have a right to freedom of speech. It is constitutinally guaranteed
thanks to America. But in reality, we don't. 2ch is one of the few places that
you can truly be honest. That's why 2ch is so popular in Japan.

194 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/12(日) 11:19:35
>>193
You can be different and express your own view and individuality freely
as long as you do your share as an individual in the society and take resposiblity in whatever you say and do.
Freedom is always associated with responsibility.
If everybody only does whatever he/she wants to do, that's called chaos, and that's what's
happening in 2CH.
Japanese should not exploit freedom by taking it superficially.

What's the general attitude towards cosplayers and EGL and punks
and soforth? The images one usually sees of Japanese people over
here are those of salarymen (or their housewife/OL equivalent),
or strange and radical (like the EGL types), but there's never any
indication how many of either there is, or how the one group
interacts with the other (if they do at all.)

197 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/12(日) 12:34:08
>>196
I have no idea what EGL stands for but those two groups don't interact.
Those crazy Shibuya girls are daughters of the conservative salarymen in
the former group. They don't talk to each other.

If you cosplay, you may want to hide that hobby from your colleages at
the office.

198 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/12(日) 12:41:26
What does EGL stand for?

About cosplayers, this is my opinion, but many people, especially the older generation,
still roll their eyes at them. I myself don't understand their orientations (not feel
irritated or ashamed at all about them, though)
Anyway, I'm sure the number of cosplayers are not so large, but they got prominent
exposure for the past several years, so gradually people started to accept them IMO.

199 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/12(日) 12:56:11
Eijiro , a popular online English-Japanese dictionary, says EGL is short for
energy grade line. This doesn't fit in the context at all and in the first place
I have no idea what energy grade line is. lol
Can you tell us what EGL means or paraphrase it, please?

200 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/12(日) 12:59:25
>>196
I'm an ordinary office worker in Japan, and regarding
cosplayers, EGL, punks, etc., I think they are doing those things as their hobbies,
so as long as they don't cause problems, I think it's OK.
But what I don't understand is why they need to wear very similar clothing and make-up and
need to get together at certain places in Harajuku, Ikebukuro, etc.
It's like wearing a school uniform and go to school, isn't it?
If they want to express their identity and individuality, they should think about
something more original, IMHO.

masquerading.

The fact that you consider yourself "an ordinary office worker" is saying something.
Many Japanese feel they are nothing but ordinary, and they are glad to be able to say that.

209 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/12(日) 17:40:57
>>208
It's saying something? What, exactly? If that's the way most Japanese are, then I don't see how it is...
Are you trying to say it's unusual that he calls himself an ordinary office worker rather than merely ordinary
without any qualifications?

If you are not comfortable with the word "ordinary," you could simply ignore it, because
I used it to be humble, that's all. (IMHO that I used at the end is another way to express your humbleness.)
If you prefer it if I say, "I am an extremely successful office worker," I wouldn't mind that
either.

213 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/12(日) 20:45:02

(IMHO that I used at the end is another way to express your humbleness.)
I don't understand this part.
What do you mean by this?

215 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/12(日) 21:45:02
>>214
I used the term "IMHO, in my humble opinion" to express my humbleness,
because I didn't want to impose my opinion to others.

216 :hyf270:2006/11/12(日) 21:49:36
>>175
This is probably because most of the American media
coming to japan is from "hip" things, like MTV; which
have a lot of stuff like that.

>>181
Well yes, anime and manga have drawn a lot of people into Japanese
interest...what's eroge?

>>184
Well, again, I can't play the file properly, but if you
can't hear the "p" there's a possibility he's saying "A Rental"; like
a rental car or something.

>>193
That's what they try to do in the US too;
that's why I'm homeschooled.

>>210
Go ahead, ask, we can talk about more than one thing at once!
That's what we're here for; answering questions. At least I am..

>>214
Being humble is basically accepting that you're nothing special;
that you're just another person; not treating other people bad
because you're "better" than them; not bragging, etc.

Some Republican conservatives don't like them because they didn't support the war against Iraq.
Americans in general sometimes dislikethem because they're often considered very rude and snobbish.

I myself cannot distinguish between Koreans, Japanese, and Chinese by looking.

223 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/13(月) 14:07:27
Nobody can distinguish them clearly just by looking.
There are some tendencies on how they look, but that can't be a sure thing.

227 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/13(月) 15:11:51

I don't if many Americans would even know his name, or the names of any other foreign leaders
for that matter.

>>226
I don't watch that show, but "copy that" or sometimes "I copy"
is something you only say if you're talking on the radio.
It means "I understand."

>>227
I guess they just want to impress people.

Most Americans don't mind the French; but
we make fun of them for being cowards a lot.
It is true that they are considered snobbish
sometimes, but that's not usually what people
are joking about with them.

>>224
"Prime Minister Koizumi? You mean Blair..?"
would be the average response. Even I don't
really know who he is...
I bet you, if you asked the average American, they'd
assume that Japan is ruled by an Emperor or a King.

>>226
It's not common, but it's not really rare either.
You see it more with people who use radios alot,
like truckers, police. Copy that means you've heard
it; 10-4 is another thing which is basically the
same.

>>227
Either bragging, or vastly overestimating their
abilities. I would, personally, never say I speak
Japanese. I wouldn't even say I speak "some" Japanese.
At best i'd say I speak a 'little' Japanese, usually I say
i'm learning Japanese.

I tried sushi a couple times, hated it. Although I did eat the green
paste on accident once, thinking it was a vegetable...

Raw meat doesn't taste very good to me.

306 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/15(水) 00:18:40
You will like sushi if you change the raw fish to beef steak,
the rice to potato, and the green paste to ketchup.
and You will know how Japanese food is tasty.

Have you read "for dummies" series such as PC for dummies?
(I'm not sure if this title exits or not, though.)

I heard the series are popular in US.

I thought since the series are written for dummies to understand,
English itselef is not so difficult. If you pick up the subject
you are familiar with, it's easy to understand, too.

I've not read it, but they are popular. They're famous
because they explain things that can be hard to understand
in simple terms; they explain it easily for people
who don't know much about it in the first place.

I love sushi, but it's expensive here. みるがい、はまち、かに、まぐろ、
えび、いか、たこ、てっかまき、かっぱまき... Yum. I usually eat around
eight or nine plates. Unfortunately, it's hard to get 本wasabi here -
most of it is just green-colored horseradish.

What hyf270 said - the "for Dummies" books try to explain complex

I would think that virtually every American has heard of them.
Sometimes they're not the best books, though. You can see customer
reviews on Amazon, though, so that shouldn't be a problem.

>>340 >>342
Yeah, i'd say nearly everyone who lives here has heard of them at
one point or another. About the only other books i'd say that for
besides classics would be Chicken Soup for the Soul books.

Thank you for the imput again.
Just reading customer reviews is good for a reading practice as a
English learner.

Actually, I've read Chicken Soup for the Soul. I thought the stories
in the book are too good to be true and felt awkward. My impression was
that there's not so many good people like ones introduced in the book.

I know Chiken Soup didn't end in just one book. It's a series, right?
Chicken soup for teenagers, chicken soup for bra bra.... on and on.

I for one, am not interested in buying another Chicken Soup for bra bra.
One is just enough.

346 :hyf270 ◆PrNB8AMUms :2006/11/15(水) 20:02:12
>>345
Yeah, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul; Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul,
Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul; Chicken Soup for the Axe Murderer's Soul,
Chicken Soup for the Daughter who just Ran Over her Father's Dog
and Has to explain Why Scruffy Won't Fetch; And so on.

Personally I don't like them, they're too sappy, and from what I
remember, they have too much of a religious orientation for my liking.

Yeah, we eat turkey, our familes get together. My mom always takes me
to her mom (my grandmother)'s house and we eat there. She makes
good food, although her turkey is too dry for me to like it..

Honestly I don't like my grandmother that much, but
for only a couple days at a time she's ok.

The day after Thanksgiving, there's usually a lot of Christmas
sales (since Thanksgiving is typically seen as the start
of the Holiday season; and it usually is seen as ending after New
Years day), so we're probably gonna wake up early
and go shopping.

While that's kinda fun, and the food is good, it's a four hour drive
each way to my grandmother's house.

You can read more about how most Americans celebrate
Thanksgiving here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving

>>361
Well he is a retard; but I read once that Thanksgiving
was originally founded as a religious holiday. Of course,
it's not celebrated as one usually, although people
do thank god and pray sometimes.

I wonder what Black Friday means.
I know Black Monday. It was when New York stock exchange market
nose-dived and that led to World Depression, right?

It seems Black has a connotation of something being bad.
I have seen the expression, "Black Friday" around Thanksgiving on
some websites.

Thanksgiving is on Thursday and Christmas shopping starts right
after Thanksgiving, which is from Friday right?

My guess is people are bothered by what to buy for Christmas gifts
so you call it Black Friday.

Is my guess right? Tell me what it means. Thank you.

412 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/25(土) 09:12:49
>>411
You're correct that the "Friday" in "Black Friday" means the
Friday after Thanksgiving and the unofficial start of the
holiday shopping season. However, the "Black" used in "Black
Monday" and "Black Friday" refer to two different things.

"Black" in "Black Friday" means that businesses open that day
are going to make a huge profit because so many people are out
spending money and shopping. In this case, the term "Black"
is making a reference to the black ink used in old adding
machines.

When an accountant for a business would punch in the sales and
debits into an adding machine, the ink color would indicate
whether it subtracted or added to the total balance of the
business. Black ink indicated increases while red ink
indicated losses.

Once everything was added up and say, a business was making
a profit, the final total would be in black ink and the owner
would say the business was "in the black" or, more
literally, "It's making money!"

On the other hand, if the balance indicated you were running
the business at a loss, the total balance would be printed in
red ink and the business owner would say "I'm in the red" or
"My business is in debt."

But "Black" is also often used to imply or express something
negative as you pointed out with the example of "Black Monday"
and the Wall Street Crash of 1929.

Thank you VERY much for your detailed answer!
I am really impressed.

So the Black is as in "in the black." That makes sense.
I am glad you explained in detail where these explations,
"in the red" and "in the black" originally come from.

Thank you very much!

I don't know if you already know this, but
it is also the case in Japanese that when one is making a profit,
it's called "黒字"(black character) and when one is losing, it's
"赤字"(red character).

416 :hyf270 ◆PrNB8AMUms :2006/11/26(日) 14:13:39
>>412 is pretty much entirely correct as far as I know.

It's common to say "In the red" when you're in debt, but
"in the green" is more common nowadays for profit. Green
is more common to use on charts for good things than black.

I heard this sentence on the TV shows.
I have no idea, but I want to know this mean.
Would you tell me?

Here it is ;
"You should be kissing my ass, you're dead meat, dude."

418 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2006/11/26(日) 20:24:44
>>416
Are you really sure about "in the green" for profit?
Doesn't it mean "young and full of energy" rather than being
profitable?

>>417
"kiss ass" is generally used to represent
being overly nice to someone, insincerely,
to get them to favor you. Like, "Tod kisses
so much ass, he'll be CEO before long."
"dead meat" is generally just a taunt,
something a school bully would use.

hyf270 is wrong. "In the green" is not used to talk about profit.
It is always "in the black". hyf270 doesn't know much about financial things
because he is a high school dropout. Be aware that his information is often wrong.

Well it depends on who's buying what for who.
Like, people will typically spend more
on their kids than on their siblings.
Of course, better off people buy better things.
Like my mom might buy me something 100-200$,
but her sister might only buy her son something 50$

If it wasn't for the fact my ride's chrome is a bit dusty and I had

Hi, merkin

I searched on Google using keywords "flag" "fold" and
"widthwise" or "lengthwise".
I found the same way of folding a rectangle is expressed
by opposite words "widthwise" and "lengthwise".
Why? Are both technically correct?
Thank you in advance.

I work with American tycoon Bill Gates. He owns the Internet and
being one of his grateful employees who actually get to see him on a
weekly basis, I have access to his database of websites. 2ch seems
to be very active and has many users, so I decided to see what all
the fuss was about. I hope you are all grateful he's not charging
rent.

He most certainly does. Why do you think he's the richest man
on Earth? You think he made billions off of software alone?
But it's a secret that he owns any part of the Internet
though, so let's keep it restricted to this board.

I concur with >>462. Also, it's amazing how when she speaks in
Japanese, her voice is very high - but when she speaks in English,
it drops down an octave or two. (This is pretty common, so I'm told,
but I hadn't heard it quite that dramatically before, or unprompted.)

>>457
The problem is that 'length' and 'width' are not necessarily
opposite to each other, especially if the long side of a rectangle
is horizontal. That said, I don't think I've ever heard anybody
use the word 'widthwise'. If it were me giving the directions, I'd
say "on the long side" or "on the short side" to avoid ambiguity.

I'm not _the_ American, merely _an_ American.

Anyhow, I'd known about 2ch for quite a while; I've been browsing
Japanese websites since 1999 or so (even though I could read even
less Japanese then.) I think I first tried looking around 2ch
after Shii's song became popular, though. I wasn't really interested
in becoming active, however, until I found the 2ch portal at
http://4-ch.net/2chportal/ (which describes lots of the culture
and JIS art in detail.)

Al Gore, unfortunately, got a lot of bad press prior to and
during his campaign for the Presidency. He made a
statement how he signed a bill as a senator that effectively
gave birth to the Internet that was blown out of proportion
and it turned into a misattributed quote saying he had
invented the Internet.

Another bad mark against him was when he kissed his wife,
Tipper, over passionately and intensely while at the
Democratic National Convention. It made him look like he was
trying to hard to show his more human side to the voting
public.

Plus, Al Gore, while regarded as an intelligent man and
genuinely concerned for the enviroment, is also seen as being
very boring and dull. He had that image even when he was
Vice-President under Clinton.


473 :名無しさん@英語勉強中:2007/01/28(日) 02:50:31
>>467, a lot of people in America would like for Al Gore to be the US President.
But unfortunately, much of America is ignorant and supports ignorance.
I blame the educational system here.
I would not be surprised if the US became a "third world" country because of this.
