It sure is. Best existentialism I've ever tasted.

A simple "que" would probably get the point across.

Do many Japanese people speak Spanish and/or are fans of Fawlty Towers?  I would love it if Fawlty Towers was  big in Japan

Recent Domestic Terrorist? Was this the mass shooter in like, Mississippi? I think I'm behind on my mentally disturbed murderers.

Not a shooter this time, surprisingly. He stabbed three people who tried to stop him harassing two Muslim women in a train killing two of them.

This isn't so much a random thought as a random question, but it doesn't warrant it's own thread so I'm asking here.

For those of you who know such things, if I wanted to convey to a Japanese person that I don't speak/understand Japanese would I say Nihon-go wa wakarimasen or Nihon-go ga wakarimasen? The internet seems to be providing me with both versions.  Also, should I stick Watashi wa... at the start or is that redundant?  I've read somewhere native speakers often leave out that part of a sentence when it's obvious you're talking about yourself, the other person, your cat's mum etc etc.

Also, if you don't need watashi wa because that's not how fluent/native Japanese speakers talk, could it be advisable to include it so it's obvious I actually don't speak/understand Japanese, as telling saying it to someone in perfect, fluent Japanese might seem...weird?

A 2nd also - is it better to say I don't understand Japanese or I don't speak Japanese?  Which one conveys the same meaning as saying I don't speak x language in English, or does it even matter?

Am I over thinking this?  Maybe looking like a confused idiot will convey the same thing lol.

We now live in a world where being anti race segregation makes you a racist and being anti gender segregation makes you a sexist.  WTF happened to the "liberal" left?  When/how did it become even more batfuck mental than the right?  I'm gonna have to find a new word to describe myself, I don't want to be associated with these fuckwits.  I'm neither left, right, centre nor a liberal or any of the old descriptions of the political spectrum.  I'm....ummm...up, I guess?  Down? Diagonal?

I got Libertarian Socialism and to be honest I had to look that up...

...and I disagree.   The wikipedia page I don't think describes me at all.  But for a lot of those questions my real answers would be "Err I never really thought about it, mate..." and/or "Well that depends..." which obviously aren't options.  That might have affected my score.

And for anyone who says the the recent domestic-terrorist was a Bernie supporter:





He apparently was a Bernie-Bro early in the elections but went into "I want to join the Trump-SS and kill all Jews" mode at some point.
