i totally get why the particle which is pronounced "o" is written with the kana for "wo" (ใ‚’) instead of the kana pronounced "o" (ใŠ) because ใ‚’ is used for nothing else and in a language without spaces that uses ใŠ word-initial all the time (like in ใ€ŒใŠ่Œถใ€, "tea", or ใ€ŒใŠ้‡‘ใ€, "money") it's important to be able to tell the words apart but NEITHER ใ‚ NOR ใฏ EVER APPEAR AT THE BEGINNING OR END OF WORDS SO WHAT THE FUCK

absolutely beyond a shadow of a doubt the most fucked up thing about japanese is that the particle which is pronounced "wa" is not written with the kana that is pronounced "wa" (ใ‚๏ผ‰but is instead written with the kana that is pronounced "ha" (ใฏ)

honestly if i had known @catalina was going to aggressively backronym it, i would never have suggested the name "dios" for our streaming software. every time i open the gitlab page and see the acronym in the readme i die a little inside

but like for real what is even the point of auto racing where the cars don't drift. why would anyone watch that

when i'm queen of earth all uses of cars will be banned except illegal drift racing through the mountains of japan

this thought brought to you by nl's chat grinding the stream to a halt to make sure that he had the game set to 60fps mode and turned motion blur off. i even *agree* that higher framerate is more important than higher resolution in most video games, but like. dude. relax. you're watching a canadian egg play a video game.

i have been made fun of by @ct for being a 90s teenager born in the wrong generation and absolutely the peak of this is the thought i just had which is "i wish we would realize that we had it right before and caring about things too much makes you annoying and no, being annoying is not something to be proud of"

why does the default male character model in demons souls remake look *exactly* like johnny depp

mental health 

i'm in like 100% adhd mode where i'm like constantly switching between doing things for like thirty seconds at a time. i'll watch a minute of a youtube video then listen to half of a song then look at my code editor for a minute then open the blank google doc i'm supposed to be writing a paper in and look at it for a minute then go back to watching a completely different video

only things i have any energy for these days are studying japanese and programming games, but i cannot bring myself to do either of them because they're not what i''m supposed to be doing, which is doing schoolwork so i do not fail
