I went out to brunch with a big group of friends and friends-of-friends this morning. I just have one thing to say - the next person who says that "they're European and speak a bajillion languages and seriously, learning kanji can't be that difficult" dies. Learning kanji is not like learning a European language, the are fricking ideograms with different readings and different meanings in different contexts. So piss off and stop assuming I am just an idiot.
Essay is almost done. I can't find any resources about corporate re-structuring though, so I'm going to leave it for a while and come back to it.
M*A*S*H is so much better with the laugh track off. I just wish they hadn't screwed us so much with the DVDs. I bought all the seasons separately and special feature-less, but now for slightly less than what I paid there is a lovely box set with special features. Uncool, M*A*S*H. I stand by my claim that Trapper is one of the most interesting characters on the show. Most fans disagree, obviously Hawkeye is, but I think Trapper has a lot more depth than fandom gives him credit for.
Oh, would you look at that. Cardinal Pell has come out supporting the Pope's 'condoms make the AIDS crisis worse' claim. Catholicism, sometimes you seriously fail. Like a lot. Also, this
is an interesting read. It's about the actual environmental impact of farming v the perceived environmental impact. It has a very bad reputation in Australia, and I would assume in a lot of other countries as well.
