Is it my turn to make an #introduction post? Alrighty
I go by many names but online most call me Fuku/Fooks.
Currently exist in the UK, but I'd love to be somewhere else. Used to live in Japan.
I love learning languages, much to the detriment of my friends who already speak them and have to deal with my awful attempts.
As for games, you'll mostly find me on FFXIV, but I love almost any strategy game I can play. (HOI4, EUIV, AoE, AoW, Civ etc.)
A thoroughly boring person IRL.
LGBT rights in Poland, police brutality
Please fucking boost this as far as possible. Please, PLEASE.
A Polish trans activist named Margot was arrested. Her "crime" is minor destruction of property (she cut up a tarp on a truck covered with vicious anti-LGBT propaganda).
Her pre-emptive arrest for two months was authorized by a court, despite the fact that such arrest, by Polish law, are meant to be used for people who are a flight risk or an immediate danger to others.
But wait, there's more.
Usually I hear people translating "kami" as "god" in a one-to-one fashion. How accurate is this?
I feel like "god" in western cultures, thanks to religion, has connotation of all-powerful being that directs human affairs and morality. And is mostly human-shaped.
Whereas "kami" seems to be more like... powerful non-human creatures, but without much direct interest in human affairs and morality? That's what Japanese entertainment looks like to me.
UK, COVID, The Most Stupid Idea
Wait, what the fuck. Why are we making it law to giving a £10 discount to restaurants during a pandemic?
It makes COVID worse and helps business owners and people who can already afford to eat out. What the fuck are they thinking?
I sell Japanese food for a living??
Lived in Japan previously and looking to move back soon.
Perpetually sleepy. (Yet perpetually awake)
