Quote from mattai
Greater excess in food supply would drive prices down
And as a result, less people would use land to produce food, bringing us back to where we started.
I suppose......but in that case at the very least there would be less overfarming. So its ...

Pretty much, if everyone was a vegetarian, there would be no world hunger.
i disagree. we currently produce enough food to feed 3 times the earth. the problem isn't the amount but rather the distribution of food.
I believe having m ...

I spent about a week on hiragana and katakana. After trying for 1 month at learning individual kanji and failing completely, I skipped individual Kanji study and went straight to vocabulary (with kanji). Been rote-memorizing using anki for about 1 month and learned abo ...

Desires and greed are endless and they are different for each person. Suppose there was a person who was born into a poor family and a person who was born into a rich family. The person who was born into the rich family already has almost everything he ev ...
|The persona series
(6 posts, 854 views) Posted: 2312d 10h, 44m ago by atat23 in Games
Personally I felt Persona 4 was better than 3, but thats just mostly because 4 was faster.
If you are looking for deep storylines then you should try the original Shin Megami Tensei games (the persona series feels like its made for a younger audience).
As for the FF ...

Gameplay. Graphics don't mean much to me, although I prefer to have at least snes-era graphics.

(61 posts, 7146 views) Posted: 2328d 10h, 22m ago by atat23 in Chatter Box
I read manga in RAW Japanese form. It kind of helps,.....but still nothing compared to simply studying since the manga I read generally have rather limited kanji. I find that it does help to improve my comprehension speed though. ...

I love visual novels. Played about a dozen of them (mostly english-translated ones, and a couple without translations which I had to struggle through with a dictionary most of the time due to my limited Japanese knowledge). My favorite by far was the Muv Luv series ...

I get the impression that there are a lot of introverted otakus or NEETs in Japan so....I think incest is popular in manga due to psychological reasons......because, it is simply easier to reach out to someone you see everyday over some random person that you hardly ...

Yes...sort of, I have a low level knowledge of Japanese (mastered hiragana and katakana, but only know a few hundred kanji, have only been studying Japanese for 2 weeks.) So I generally stick to manga with primarily hiragana/katakana so I can get the gist of th ...

I used to only eat 2-3 times a day, but now I eat 5-6 times a day since I started working out.
I'm like 90% vegetarian, with the only non-vegetables I eat being eggs and the occasional seafood.
Eating vegetables simply doesn't keep me full.
