Japanese Tongue Twisters

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

Yesterday instead of doing all my homework, I sat down with some of my Japanese friends, and we went through both english and Japanese Tongue Twisters (早くち言葉). I’ll list some of them here (you might want to install asian fonts). also. if you know of any other english ones, aside from the peter piper, fuzzy wuzzy, the woochuck one, and the rubber baby buggy bumpers, please leave them as a comment.

the News today

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

so, I was reading the news on cnn.com today, and noticed that the croc hunter died the other day. Yea, i was a little dissapointed. but what got to me was the insane amount of random attention this was getting, not in the entertainment news, but Asian world news! like 7 stories were all about the Croc Hunter! and there were like 8 stories with other more relevant news. seriously. half the stories about the crazy crocodile man?!?
