25000 wpm would equal to 300,000 words in total, taking that half-hour into planning and thinking, as well as writing the introduction and disclaimers.

A usual person writes at about 30-40 wpm with a word-processor. Non-stop writing would only kill when it is extended over 3-4 hours.

Thus I sometimes feel that if my country's lauding of "best education in SEA" is actually an over-exaggeration used as an advertising factor, when we are taught to write like this. Or maybe it is because I am in a business school.

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.

Hahhaha no no, I was pointing out the fact that you said 5000 pages instead of 5000 words by accident

(5000 pages @ 700-1000 words a page - 700 words will give you 23333 wpm )

Yeahhhhh, best education amongst 10 nations. Yeah.

How about "Best education in Asia-ex-Japan"?
Or best-performing nation in Asia-Pacific?

(Go take a look at the UNSW International Competition. Singapore starts at P2. Most start at P3, some even P4.)

What is the proper way to say "milk with your tea?" in Japanese? With Kanji.

ミルクティー. It directly translates into milk tea. Or "mi-ru-ku" tea.
Kanji... ミルク茶 would come close.

Ehhh I was actually looking for the expression of "Do you want to add milk to your tea?", in a sense that if the person wants milk in the freshly-brewed tea or not.

And yeah, I need a kanji/hira/kata because I want to add it to a sketch I made.

紅茶にミルクをお入れ致しましょうか? ("Could I pour milk to your tea?")
Just ミルクをお入れしましょうか? sounds more natural.

Anyone knows any tips for lighting up paper in a bin with matches? Could light the match up but the flame seems to die off too quickly for me to light the paper with it.

I was looking for anime merchandise to buy and I came up with a CLANNAD lithograph II so I was wondering what a lithograph is and how is it made.

Light a piece of paper with a match then throw the paper in.

Another way would be to pour kerosene down the edge of the bin the light the trail.

The most thrilling and fun way though, would be to pour half-a-biscuit-tin full of napalm into the bin, trailing off at the edges so the napalm sticks to the sides of the inside, then light it. But remember to get someone else to call the SCDF, don't call them yourself.

So is this correct?



NO there is no other meaning to it you perverts! Just a simple request from a bishoujo asking if you want milk in your tea!

Google is your friend, and faster source of information than this topic. I googled Lithorgraph as well when I saw that merchandise on it's thread.

And, according to that merchandise thread, it's just a wallscroll where the artwork was painted using lithography. ( use wiki for this ). That's why there's only limited quantity of it on sale.

I feel exceedingly foolish for this but... I love doing text based role plays and I want to find other people who are interested but... I'm not sure how to go about finding people who are interested in text based role playing. I want to make a thread about it but I'm not sure where to put it, or even if that would be allowed. Could someone please help me?

Look at the Rolplay social groups, if you can't find one that meets your needs make your own. If anyone else is interested in participating they will, if not...

Was the poster asking about text-based MUD/MUCKs? irc roleplay or just forum post roleplay? This may be one of the oldest MUCKs on the Internet (Furry MUCK) and I'm sure there are anime themed ones out there. MUCKs have the advantage of being virtual worlds (ala ZORK/Adventure) and often have player constructed locations and objects.

How would one conceivably have a signature that changed itself on it's own? I'm looking to have those words above Miku change every time someone refreshes.

It could be done with JavaScript or some server side code. However, on this forum, currently there is no way for you to do it.

There is no built in feature to do it and we don't allow signature-rotator images (not exactly what you asked about but "an approach"). I looked into providing a feature similar the rotators on the forum, but it wasn't great and it didn't support text in the way you're suggesting. Needless to say it hasn't been enabled.
