You are to appreciate all efforts and sacrifice dedicated in order to keep you alive). It became a secular greeting word to finish a dinner in the 18th century, and spread out quickly.
You can use the phrase whenever you finish eating. It does not depend on the situation or the quality of the dish; alone or together, delicious or poor, home or restaurant. It is a word to show the gratitude, and you have little reason to hesitate to express gratitude.
It is pronounced in a normal voice, unless given specific condition (such as in a kindergarten, elementary school or in a kids sports club). School pupils often say it in chorus with louder volume when eating bento in the classroom.
How children are taught: it's quite like making prayer before supper in a Christian family. It is taught in the family education. Parents tell the children to say Gochisousama before leaving the table. These days, however, some parents fail to do so and their children sometimes are seen as rude and uncivilized.

I don't think it is good idea to copy&paste irresponsible articles in the Internet to your homework report. You should search for proper books in the library.

Anyway, saw your question over there but just really didn't have anything productive to say... but here's what I got:

For some reason if I say it without at least bowing my head or nodding in the direction of the host (or my wife who was in charge of the cooking), it feels uncomfortable. The head action or the hand action just seems absolutely necessary or it "isn't right" to me.
I always say it in a soft but firm voice. In Japanese restaurants, when we say the phrase and its companion (itadakimasu), we almost invariably gets a weird look from the gaijin tables. (I'm Heinz57-euro, my wife is japanese, and we usually have a Star Trek mix of skin colors at the table anyway ).
Thank you there ^^

@LiberLibri: yeah i admit I tend to not taking an assignment seriously when it's not (as) important .
When there are little time to present(few mins) and a casual group of audiences, it's better to throw in some uber cool website/pictures/animations and tell them "See!! this awesome Japanese *inserthere* say so, so it must be right"

@Vexx: even when there's no productive things to say, for your specific case it will be like "wise man speaking" anyway. Even if it does not concern me, i still can get random knowledges from it (e.g. didn't know what's the meaning of Heinz57 till now. Thought it's the name of an ancient Greek tribe )

I am not sure this is the right thread for asking this , as we have the '' could you translater this'' but is seem to be only for translating from japanese to english...
I am planing to use a strophe of one of Baudelaire"s ''Les Fleurs du Mal'' poem on one signature but I fear than the translation might not be as good as I think, Could someone tell me any mistake I made :
Spoiler for the quote in french from ''le beau navire'':

I want to tell you, o soft enchanteress!
The various beauty than adorn your young;
I want to paint to you your beauty
Where childhood combine with maturity.

The Black box was found ,

Black Box is an outdated device in terms of technology . Black Boxes don't have a GPS system when our phones do . The problem isn't technology problem is standardizing and implementation .

The article below analyzes the crash and recommends several changes w.r.p to Airline Industry .

Technically it's still a nightmare in the sense of it being an unpleasant dream, that takes place during REM.

So I would say, no it's still considered a nightmare :P

I guess that is the right thread for such questions. What is that college department you are talking about?

I thought he wants to do accounting as major. I thought it meant to be an employer + university partnership thing, where you basically have to convince the employer that his investment in your education is worth it. I am sure I just do not understand it. Where I live... if you want to go to an university, you just subscribe yourself and then hope that your school results were good enough to be allowed (when there are more applications than there are free places only the applicants with the best results will be allowed) ... or take a major where there are less competitors or less applicants than available places.

Yo Ganbaru,

I've presumed that you are translating the French into English. Everything about it was fine according to me, except for one thing.

The second line; "Les diverses beautées qui parent ta jeunesse", I translated into; "The various beauties who parry your youth".

However, my French isn't amazing, so don't take my word for gospel. Hope this helps! ^^

Not quite sure what you mean

I suppose if you did every course/class at college, and did well in the exams, then you would have all the job requirements.

However, I don't know if you mean UK College or USA College etc. It's a bit different.

Err... I think both of those are symptoms rather than actual conditions. Your stomach might hurt because you have typhoid, which you can die from. On the other hand, if you have indigestion, I doubt you're going to die ( well, I can't really say what other people are putting their digestive tracts through )Though, as for nervousness- can you die because of a panic attack? Not that I've ever heard of. Maybe if you realyyy want to push it extreme anxiety could trigger off some sort of cardiac condition.. but if I had to say, no not really. Don't quote me on this but I don't think you can die of pain as such - you'd probably just pass out after a point.

Thanks for the response. Can I have another response? Can you die from pain ? can you die from panic attacks?

it all depends.. do you have a weak heart then having a panic attack CAN kill you, if you're older and really freaking out a vain might pop in your head it all depends on the situation. A little shakey and stuttering is not kill-able, people screaming and running around like crazy is but only under certain circumstances.

stomach aches there are many kinds of stomach aches... indigestion you might get some diarrhea if you ate something bad, only after a couple days without stopping is that something to worry about. Young children however are more at risk in that category..
stomach aches due to nervousness, no doesn't do one bit.. sorry bud but you're sticking around a while longer =)
if that isn't what you meant then redefine stomach aches, cause it can be involved with a lot of things

Yes you may have another response. You can die from panic attacks that trigger something like a heart attack or more indirectly (this is a stretch) having a panic attack while at the wheel of a car or something. I don't think you can directly die from pain, as pointed out earlier you would probably just pass out.

Is it true that Encyclopedia Dramatica was made by "exiles" from 4chan?

If you think 4chan is the worst website ever then you never saw Encyclopedia Dramatica before...

I dont think it is. It insults anyone and everyone, including it's own site... so that's probably why they called themselves (the editors, etc..) 'exiles'... assuming that's where you read that, since every other article labels people as exiles from somewhere else.

I don't think it's meant to be a substitute for if you got banned on 4chan. It was made by some guy a few years back but I don't think a reason was mentioned.

You can't die from pain itself, whatever is causing that pain will kill you, but pain is just a sensation that's evolved to protect and the body from a dangerous/unfavourable enviroment. That enviroment can be internal or external. To take a simplistic example, when nature is calling, and you don't answer, the body will respond by gradually increasing your discomfort until it's unbearable...and one way or another you have to answer the call.
