    [–] What if you were a gay male in medieval Europe? KyleKairu 1 points ago in history

    Could you tell me why? I've been meaning to read that book.

    [–] Anyone else tired of the "how can I casually learn Japanese?" questions? KyleKairu 17 points ago in LearnJapanese

    Oh Jesus. I've literally read this SAME POST so so many times over the years. "You don't believe in my new sub idea? Well that's just a symptom of the very problem with this sub!! I'll start a new (noob friendly/advanced/learn through vidya games/ take your pick) sub, with blackjack, and hookers!"

    Gets upvoted for young zeal, the old gruff guy looks down ashy cigarette hanging from lip, impressed smile barely visible in the shadows, "Well kid, I've never seen it work, but if you could make it happen... that'd be something, alright"

    Two weeks later the new sub is dead. Repeat ad nauseum:

    /r/russian doesn't have to deal with weebs and check to make sure everyone's wiping their own butts and doing basic things like opening a textbook before posting. We will never have the same atmosphere as the other language subs because of that. We also have a disproportionate amount of guides and grammar nerds ready to answer most questions in detail within an hour. Which is definitely not the case for other similarly difficult languages like Arabic. I will take our high resource/shitty atmosphere over the other subs any day.

    [–] Vape bubble KyleKairu -13 points ago in BetterEveryLoop

    What did I just read... i never thought smoking could be uncool but here in 2017 I guess a vape is the bastard child of a fidget spinner and a cigarette.

    [–] (nswf?) Won't forget this one. Thanks koohi KyleKairu 3 points ago in LearnJapanese

    You don't need to remember a whole story when you can just flashcard one basic word you already know. You could learn "understand" as "下にはたてる。分かる?" (I'm erect down there, do you understand? Lit. 'under is standing, understand?').

    Or you could just flashcard that word you already know and will encounter in Japanese every single day.

    [–] [English > Japanese] How do I apologize for not knowing how to say something? KyleKairu 2 points ago in translator

    There are many ways to go about this, and it really depends on the circumstances. Did you understand their question but are struggling to translate your answer? Are you trying to explain something but can't? Are you trying to translate an English word or concept but can't?

    The natural way to respond would be very different in all those circumstances.

    Any practice is better than no practice, but if you already know a word that uses the kanji you are trying to remember, you are better off learning from flashcards of that word (in this case 只今) than struggling through a mnemonic.

    Learning 只 as "a mouth and two legs" when you already know the word would be like a Japanese person learning "understand" as 下には立てる or something.

    Heiseig is a waste of time after the first 300 (learning the most basic radicals and stroke orders). You should be learning common words like this from use and practice, not remembering sex stories.

    [–] (nswf?) Won't forget this one. Thanks koohi KyleKairu 8 points ago in LearnJapanese

    That's a pretty convoluted way to remember 只. It's ただ, like just or only. A super common word. In fact you already know it in the form of 只今 (ただいま), "just now". Like when you tell people you just now got home.

    [–] Monero vs Ethereum with zkSNARKS KyleKairu 1 points ago in Monero

    So many development paths open to make Monero more secure. Thanks, I have some things to think about.

    [–] Can we get a fair comparison of Zcash's private transactions vs Monero? Or some unbiased discussion? Currently our chart compares Zcash's non-hidden transactions with Monero; it looks pretty biased. If we compared just hidden transactions, would it be all checkmarks/question marks? KyleKairu 1 points ago in Monero

    I'm going to bed and I'm too lazy to review our conversation. It's definitely plausible that I missed your point somewhere, you seem like a nice enough guy so sorry if that happened and about calling you delusional haha. I really do like Monero and I hope more people get into it and that we can keep a discussion friendly attitude. My tendency to take devil's advocacy to the extreme when discussing does make me look a bit shilly, so I suppose that's something I should be careful about from here on out. Cheers dude

    [–] DAE call a foreign country they've never been to home, after a 101 course in that country's language? KyleKairu 6 points ago in japancirclejerk

    The 101 thing wasn't a joke? I thought 101 was the "this is a cat" class that somehow half the students end up dropping out of anyway. I'm low key impressed. Half the ALTs probably couldn't read those simple ass kanji

    You already said I'm not a shill based on my post history. But now you're buttmad that I called you out so you changed your words. Sure, if calling me a shill makes you sleep better at night and not reflect, you do you buddy.

    I'll continue to use my "high paid corporate shill time" to argue about cookie grammar and study Japanese. Keep careful watch on my account man, you might figure out my evil scheme.

    You will receive 10% of all money created forever. And that is following the 20% of all money created for the first 20 years.

    Hmm after reviewing the initial statement, I can see now how it could be grammatically correct in the same way "light yourself on fire and you will be warm for the rest of your life" is correct but initially confusing. I was focusing on the "receiving forever" interpretation, which would require infinite reception in most cases.

    You were right, and I need to lern2English.

    Further, he refuses to respond to the first comment on his post and the most upvoted.

    Lol are you so sure? Looks very much like you refused to respond to my response on that post, bud.

    Further, his account has 1446 karma and 6666 post karma in 1 month!

    All from one anti-corporate post bbz. What have you done this month besides cry when someone wants to compare privacy coin features? Also if you don't delete your account at least every six months you're an idiot and have no business talking about privacy and security.

    Your remarks are actually typical of manipulative shills

    A typical shill for zcash says this?:

    Wow [Zcash's lack of privacy is] really concerning. Thanks for that. It's a shame because zero knowledge is such a promising algorithm. I suppose this is what happens when you don't make privacy your number one priority.

    You're delusional. Do you go to bed with the lights on because you're scared there's a shill hiding under your bed?
