    HUEHUEland is in a huge crisis, I'm tired of being a freelancer, the ad industry is shit, the school I used to teach at has closed down, my brother is moving from my apartment... so if I'm going to reboot my entire life, might as well do it in another country and see how it goes. Bonus points for finally learning moonrunes properly.

    Brazilians moving to Japan is kind a of a cliche, no, except that it's normally ethnic Japanese? As Peter Hitchens (Christopher Hitchen's ultra-right-wing brother) wrote (with wonderful colonial attitudes toward Brazilians and Japanese alike):

    Yeah, Brazil & Japan have a weird relationship... like, São Paulo has the largest concentration of Japanese people outside of Japan. But they like, hate us.

    As the article said, these people look Japanese, but are HUEHUE at heart. I'm clearly a latino / baka gaijin, so they expect me to be an idiot that doesn't know shit, and get surprised when I speak Japanese. With the HUEHUE/Japanese hybrids, it's the opposite - they look Japanese, but behave in a tottaly different way, and most don't even know moonspeak... IT'S SHAMEFUR DISPRAY!

    I came to this thread hoping to learn the definition of Japan. I'm disappointed.

    How come no one whines that FPS should become more :incloosive: and don't have to be bound by being first person or involving shooting?

    Nice to see Garriott actually undersands the basic tenets of mondblutianism. I wish more "roleplayers" would follow him and stop associating with those nasty stats games RPGs are, instead of being cretins like Warren "dice are stone age of game design" Spector.
