I want to learn the langauge as It sounds nice, the people that speak it are awesome, and so i can watch anime in its original form

unfortunatly I dont know where I could learn it so i'm stuck with English and german for now.

I'm 99% sure this Sundays adult mail will be priced at like £5 or something like that.

EDIT:*daily mail, stupid htc spelling correction

Im not fond of the Japanese as they have a really closed culture but i dont care anyway as its not like i will ever emigrate there, however i do like their products and work attitude.

I LOVE THAT NEWS OF THE WORLD SHUT DOWN!!! I think Murdoch did it to protect the BskyB deal and his other news papers from investigation. One day i hope "The Sun" also shuts down which also happens to be owned by News International, its a liar of a newspaper and it prints a load of tat. Murdochs conglomerate supports the Tories, it did in the 80s too when it tried to break the unions but supported Tony Blair who was apparently in touch with them all the time, just a bit of history for you all.

EDIT: Freedom i just have to say that im glad someone shares a similar view to me as to the previous topic.
Just been playing Shenmue on my Dreamcast have to say it looks good for a dreamcast game!

well being Chinese... I have to say that i quite like the Japanese culture. the kids are better raised. more well behaved and the women respect their men a lot more then british women. (and japanese girls are more cute -- dont out drink the men and know how to cook a damn good chicken curry)

and not only that. I like their music a lot better too!!

the only thing though. If i wanted to go live there. Id have to give up my british passport. and since that gets me pretty much anywhere. its not gonna happen.

Tentacle porn and things like that has caused Freedom to defect. :p

Jokes aside, yes Japan and China does not have the best of relationships, but as China puts it, As much as we don't like them (North Korea), they are still neighbours so we will have to help. Same goes to France and Britain. Not the best of friends, but Hitler (and co.) was reason enough to force them together.

From a historical standpoint, Japan during WW2 tried to annihilate and take over China. They have had MANY confrontations before that. Its a culture thing, i think they find their culture repulsive, Jap's hate a lot of other Asian cultures like Korea. It doesnt matter as a lot of the Asian cultures have superiority complexes towards each other. Like i was just reading if you are American of Chinese descent they consider you only American.

A lot of this generation dont share in this, its generally older people.

Scotland and France where historically always chummy. Scottish warriors fought on the side of France during the medieval period and vice versa.

Many many centuries ago. the chinese emperor sent a group of solidiers out to find him something that would grant him imortality, and said they would be executed if they return empty handed.

none of the soldiers ever returned. and thats how the japanese was spawned.

but yeah. Jap vs china was a very dark part of history

Chinese tried to invade Japan and their ships where not sea going and underestimated the distance to Japan and most of them died in the voyage. That was under the reign of Kublai Khan, who i think was one of the only foreign rulers (emperor) of China?

Like i said no one really has animosity these days i mean look at Europeans all best mates, things just change i guess since the second world war. Must've done a lot to bring people together more than we think.
EDIT: Sorry if its boring anyone else, i just find these things interesting lol.

They are selling Llano A8-3850 at Aria for £99 i think you could make a nice little media pc with that. Shove it in a m-atx rig or even an itx board.

Then at least you have the motherboard (rest of the rig) so if they update the chips you can just swap it out.

On a much lighter note. I finally managed to get around downloading that Crysis 2 DX11 patches.

(in an internetcafe with what seems to be a 24Mbps download rate = ftw) cant wait to get home and try the DX11 textures on my brandspanking new 6970s

On the other hand, I see LifeOnMars has unfortunately lost his job and is selling his i5 2500K setup. I am not sure whether he should sell that or not, but if anyone who wants to upgrade to the 2500K might want to consider.

Its a sign Orange-kun..

My PSU, Frio and Mars's 2500k (& Mobo?? i think hes selling one of those too) throw in a set of overclocked 5850s and you have a beast of a system that will push vantage to over 30k..... not that benchmarks are that important of course. I was just saying.

Its a message from allah -- hes telling you to by mine and Mr. Mars's gear.

its clear as day mate

Thank you Mr Gundam, but as a Chinese (the stereotypical opportunist other than Jews), I have obviously considered and rejected. Not because the price is bad (its very good), but I am not going to buy something before my results come out. If they are bad, I probably should cut down on gaming (rendering the 2500K pretty useless).

LifeOnMars's reference 5870 is a crazy good deal. It's like at least £20 cheaper then the cheapest go for on ebay. You could buy it and if you don't like it sell it for a profit!

I was tempted but since I don't play many games any more I'm going to hold off until BF3 upgrading my GPU. Or at least that's the theory!
