You'd be surprised at the significantly smaller bracket in the East Asia region (I estimate to be 5-10%) - everybody is interested in making money but nobody bothers to understand how the financial system works, and how politics and policies drive the market. And.....

I am currently doing a prepatory diploma to major in Finance or Economics, but that isn't my real interest. I am more interested in mechanical or aerospace engineering (yeah I know, I suck at math, don't rub it in).

I have come to see how actually many young adults have no interest or bother to discover how things work, be it a "science" (Engineering, theoretical science, etc) or "art" (Economics, political, etc) system. They are just interested in the shortest direct method to the end result - the worst method to use for achieving personal success IMO.

Sometimes I wonder why there is a lack of interest in "discovery" of the world and the surroundings we live in, I never bothered to ask this question since I doubt I could get any real answers. Maybe I could give it a try here, writing something in text could probably yield some good philosophy or insight I myself never thought of.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

There isn't really any lack, Saintess. More likely, innovators and people of curiosity have always been fairly rare.

I got a question.

"How do you pronounce AnimeSuki?"

Is it "Anime Tsu-Ki" or "Animeski"?

Going the Japanese way, Ah-Nee-Meh-Skee. (you still make the oo sound at the end, you're just running over the oo in Soo, but it's still faintly there)

Going the English way, A-Nih-Meh-Soo-Kee.

It's pronounced "Ski" The romanized is "Suki" but it's not pronounced that way. "Suki" Means "Like" So "Anime Suki" means "I like anime". The "Watashiwa" is omitted when said about yourself so you would say it as "Anime ga-suki" or "Anime suki"
(Anyone please correct me if I'm wrong about anything. I'm still learning)

I don't think you should apply proper Japanese language rules to AnimeSuki, considering it's slightly incorrect grammar to begin with.

It should be "Anime ga suki", but that doesn't roll off the tongue like AnimeSuki does, so .

I've been pronouncing it as 'shu-kee'. I suppose that puts me in the wrong on this one.

Question: How do you use honorifics anyways? On impressions, the intimacy or friendship of person, or just to show a more 'buttering up' side? I think I've been misusing them for sometime now. I know what they mean, but I'm afraid I may be misusing them. It's a trivial matter, yes. But I prefer to be accurate.
Many Asian languages, including Japanese, strictly require the use of honorifics. You don't only pull them out to suck up; people who would dare drop them in unacceptable situations are seen as crass, rude, etc.. It's only appropriate to drop honorifics when referring to yourself, when addressing people extremely close to you like family members, and when addressing subordinates (that last one shouldn't be done unless you want to establish an authority relationship with your subject, like a teacher addressing a student).

There are many honorific suffixes; the most common one to use with a stranger is -san. -kun and -chan can be used with younger strangers. In a school setting (or any similar setting defined by seniority, like a company job), -senpai is for upperclassmen, -kouhei is for underclassmen (people sometimes prefer to continue calling upperclassmen -senpai, even years or decades after the speaker and the subject leave school). There's tons more, but those are just basic ones (-senpai isn't too basic, but it's stuck in my mind from watching too much anime ).

On my W7, if i open a .gif file, my internet explorer opens that file to view it.
Actually, i find that very strange and want to open it with the Windows Photo Viewer(the default one from Windows).
Where can i set that, that .gif files will be opened with this Photo Viewer?


Thanks a lot in advance.

Sure you want to do that? Photo Viewer slows down animated gifs to about 200 frames per millisecond, so most everything will be slowed down.

Yeah, best to just look at them in IE, since IE won't slow them down at all.

Seems like I have been asking too many questions lately. Must get off my lazy ass to do my own research!

Here's one : I am planning to dye my hair orange. Should I go to an official saloon or get a DIY hair dye?

It's really a tsundere excuse by you in order to be social here/get more attention, but you can't really admit that .

I'd say go with a saloon, since people I've know who did it themselves never had it turn out as well.

with 200 frames per millisecond, slowing down is not exactly the correct term to describe the insane speed. (Thats 200,000 frames per second... I guess you meant 200ms per frame, which makes 5 frames per second)

Is your hair lighter than orange or darker than orange? If lighter (white) you may be able to pull off a temp orange dye at home. If darker (brown, black) I say go to a salon, because you'll first have to permanently bleach your hair (which can result in a fugly head of weird colored hair, hair loss, and/or chemical burns to the scalp if done incorrectly), then dye it again to orange (which can make your already weakened hair fall out, especially if it's a permanent orange dye). Do not just dump orange on your hair if it isn't already white or really light blonde, or there will be no telling how your hair will come out (99% chance it'll become some super ugly color, 100% chance it won't be orange). btw if your hair is chemically straightened, don't use any dyes with hydrogen peroxide, or you'll be wearing wigs for months.

There are many types of dyes, but if you'll be bleaching your hair (which can only be done permanently, no wash out bleaches), I'd just go for the permanent orange dye as well; if you go for temporary orange color, it'll wash off to reveal the white bleached hair underneath. A professional dye job will minimize the chances of things going wrong with your hair; when getting it done, make sure that they don't leave the bleach on too long (I've heard too many horror stories of bad stylists; in one, the stylist left bleach on the girl's head and went to lunch, came back and, well, "stuff" was oozing out of her scalp ). Whatever you do, good luck, and here's to you getting a lovely vibrant shade of orange.

at the saloon it is very VERY expensive, keep recon with that.
However dying it orange isn't easy for some hair types, if you are blonde you can easily do it at home but if you have dark brown or black hair it gets harder.

I have brown hair and had it orange/red once, it worked for me so you could try. However a tip for dying at home: let someone help you out getting it into your hair. I would always sit backward on the lit down toilet and my mom would rub it in and made sure I had the dye equally spread which is something that goes wrong if you do it alone. If you don't then you have one very bright spot and the rest a little less.

If you have black hair, natural curls, ginger ish hair you would want to go to a saloon. Beware the darker your natural colour the darker the result, mine was alright but with some brightest colours you have to dye it blonde first and your hair will die from it if you dye it too many times dying hair also happens quickly if you have the troubling hair types cause they have to dye it extra to get result.

Lastly do not go for any shady cheap brands, I once used a purple colour from a gothic shop a small box with no pics: well when washing it out the ink came out and turned the whole tub purple and it was an ass to get off, my hair had turned gray >.<
