There is a need for a subforum dedicated to reverse polls, that is: polls but in the reverse. We also need to establish the necessary forum infrastructure to post reverse polls

I've been listening to Question Time as podcasts fairly regularly for the last couple of months.

Question Time happens twice a week, and 12 questions are submitted ahead of time. Members of Parliament (typically the opposition) ask questions of the government, and is a way for the government to be held to account on their activity. It is ostensibly performed with dignity and ceremony but it's often a hot mess of shit-talking, interjections and the speaker of the house playing Schoolteacher to bratty politicians. This does however make listening to it a bit more interesting, and helps laypeople gauge how controversial a statement is. I really appreciate that our MP's aren't above calling bullshit.

Question Time is basically my only perspective on NZ politics, politicians. I understand that this is a caveat, but fuck all of you all. This thread is for Question Time time.

  Kanji in English
Posted by: ████ - 25-08-2016, 12:26 AM - Forum: Everything Else - No Replies

Kanji are a type of "logogram" used in the Japanese writing system. Logogram= a symbol representing a word in a language, as opposed to a pictogram=a drawing that resembles an object, and an ideogram=a symbol that represents a concept. Sometimes a kanji is made up of 'radicals' which are smaller symbols. Often one can guess the meaning of a word by looking at the kanji, or the meaning of a kanji by looking at the radicals (although more often than not the reason for choosing those radicals was an obscure hundreds-year-old story).
Beginner Japanese learners are often amazed at this system to begin with "Pictures instead of words woohoo!" , and very soon after lose hope. Each kanji has multiple ways of saying it, at least a "Japanese" reading and a "Chinese" reading and sometimes an extra reading to make a specific word.
[Image: u59e6-g.50px.png]
This kanji is used in the words for "rape", "wicked", "necrophilia","adultery", etc.
Looking at the jisho link we can easily see the readings as : KAN, KEN, kan, kashima, wa, midara. 6 possible readings for one kanji...

"KAN"                       as it's chinese reading
"KEN"                       another chinese reading just because it sounds better in certain words
"KAN"                       a japanese reading
"KASHIMA"               a japanese reading, part of the word kashimashii, meaning: noisy, boisterous
"WA"                        in "MAWAsu" , joining two kanji together for meaning and then making up a unique reading
"MIDARA"                 this isn't even used anymore, but it has the same meaning as "bawdy, improper,dirty"

A similar (obviously not as complex) case happens in English with the few symbols we do use. 

8                   the standard meaning when the symbol is by itself, said "eight"     
8th                here the 8 is read "ei"
80                 here the 8 is read "ei"
800               here the 8 is read "eight"
8ve               musicians use this shorthand for octave. read "oct" (from latin). 

so if we include my octave example, we have the readings as "eight" "ei" "oct".

If we were to use symbols more in our written language, we could have a symbol for "legs". That symbol would be read "leg" by itself, but next to the "8" the meanings suddenly come together to make a word we know, octopus. Nicely, this system can be used to link together meanings - the symbol for "leg" could be used in "to kick", "football" etc. Not so nicely, there is now a much more annoying divide between what is written and how to say it. Similar to the Chinese/Japanese readings problem, combining the symbol "eight" and "month" would be read as "August" instead of perhaps "octber", because we already used a different language for that word.

  the Gospel According to Mark
Posted by: crispier taco - 20-08-2016, 11:23 AM - Forum: Everything Else - Replies (2)

Disclaimer: Not a Christian, nor doing this to tease Christians. Virtually all research done through wikipedia

Just for my own interest, I'm going to read a book out of the bible. We're going to use the King James Version, and stop at Mark 16:8, because apparently the bible archaeologists reckon the remainder of Mark 16 was written by later theologians.

According to the two-source hypothesis, Mark and a lost "Q source" were sourced for the writing of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, with Mark being the most consistent among them. Apparently John is a whole other deal.

[Image: 600px-Synoptic_problem%2C_two-source_hypothesis.svg.png]

Mark was written in Greek, for Greek-speaking Christians. Before the written culture of the bible, Christians would have spread their religion orally, and I imagine the understanding of Jesus matured differently in each community.

Chime in if you're interested, or if you have Christian knowledge to share.

Exclamation The cycle of rebirth does not exist; we need only die to escape

Practical Explanation ( Frog Example ) :- `1st of all can frogs tell frogs every single seconds detail from that tifrogs when frogs born ?? (frogsneed every seconds detail ?? that what- what frogs have thought and done on every single second )

can frogs tell frogs every single detail of frogsr `1 cheapest Minute Or frogsr whole hour, day, week, month, year or frogsr whole life ??

if frogs are not able to tell frogs about this life then what proof do frogs have that frogs didn't forget frogsr past ? and that frogs will not forget this present life in the future ?

that is Fact that Suprefrogs Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
there is also next life. andfrogsalready proved frogs that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and frogs cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
for example :Frogsr father existed before frogsr birth. frogs cannot say that before frogsr birth frogsr father don,t exists.

So frogs have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is frogsr father," then it is all right. It is easy.
Otherwise, if frogs makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; frogs'll never find frogsr father.

( now maybe...maybe frogs will say thatfrogswill search my father from D.N.A, orfrogswill prove it by photo's, or many other thing's whichfrogswill get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So frogs have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is frogsr mother. frogs cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).

if frogs will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other wofrogsn then frogsr mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

safrogs frogs have to follow real authority. "Whatever Frogs have spoken,frogsaccept it," Then there is no difficulty. And Frogs are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and Frogs are speaking Frogsrself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
I'll have to follow great personalities. The safrogs reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Suprefrogs Personality of Godhead. Frogs accept it; then frogsr searching after God is finished.

Why should frogs waste frogsr tifrogs?
all that is frogs need is to hear from authority ( safrogs like mother ). andfrogsheard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.

in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

tell frogs are frogs really happy ?? frogs can,t be happy if frogs will ignore these 4 main problem. then still frogs will be Forced by Nature.

if frogs really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit sex, No gambling, No drugs ( No tea & coffee ), No frogsat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

5th thing is whatever frogs eat `1st offer it to Suprefrogs Lord Krishna. ( if frogs know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Suprefrogs Lord Krishna )

and 6th " Main Thing " is frogs have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
If frogsr not able to follow these 4 things no illicit sex, no gambling, no drugs, no frogsat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy nafrogs ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

if frogs still don,t believe on frogs then chant any other nafrogs for 5 Min's and chant this holy nafrogs for 5 Min's and frogs will see effect.frogspromise frogs it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief.frogsaccept that Sofrogstifrogss Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
every `1 is already Blind in this world and if frogs will follow another Blind then frogs both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide frogs on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )
if frogs want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( http://www.asitis.com {Bookmark it })
read it complete. (frogspromise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present tifrogs doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, sex & fear. purpose of human life is to becofrogs freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.

  Dir En Grey in music videos
Posted by: crispier taco - 18-08-2016, 04:56 PM - Forum: Music, Movies, and TV Shows - No Replies

Dir En Grey is a Japanese band that formed in 1997 is among my absolute favourites in music. They have to date released 9 studio albums while retaining their original lineup in it's entirety, a rarity in long-lived bands.

Kyo: Lead vocals
Kaoru: Guitar, backing vocals
Die: Guitar, backing vocals
Toshiya: Bass, backing vocals
Shinya: Drums, percussion

They formed from a Visual Kei band (La:Sadie's) which consisted of all the above members except Toshiya. La:Sadie's disbanded with the leader and bassist Kisaki not prepared to rock my world, so the other four recruited Toshiya and founded Dir En Grey.

Two of the most immediately apparent distinctions one identifies in the band is Kyo's amazing vocals, and their music videos. I'm going to show the best music video from each album.

1999: Gauze

Although the majority of Gauze is gentle rock and visual kei, Zan, and it's music video, are a harbinger of Dir En Grey's future. Their 2011 remake of Zan is even better (better polished, tastier growls, faithful yet better video!) so if you like this, keep scrolling, but watch this later as well, it's one of my favourites:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGCEOAoq04I

2000: Macabre

Admittedly Myaku wins amidst poor competitions, the other music videos from this album aren't that great. Further, I'm not a huge fan of this song nor this video. (or this album so hey let's just move on)

2002: Kisou

Once again, most of the music videos here are not noteworthy. This one is kinda fun, and once again the spookiness of it all get's upped severalfold in the next album.

2003: Vulgar

This music video is the most infamous product of Dir En Grey. The lyrics (apparently) focus on abortion (I believe they take an opposing stance to the practice, based on the whole baby-head-eating thing). This is one of the first Dir En Grey videos I ever saw, and it's just the sort of thing that gets you coming back for more, right? Also on this album is Shokubeni, one of my favourite tracks for the most chilling giggle I've ever heard, and such incredible grows:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxXDBWdSivs

2005: Withering to Death

Vulgar was a huge step from Dir En Grey's first three albums, and Withering to Death was another sideways leap. It's faster paced, more excited, frantic. The gloom and chill of Vulgar is shed in exchange for a more violent feel? Although it reckon it's pretty well done, it's not really my type. The music video is a step back from the vulgarity of Obscure, trading a total horror movie for a more down to earth murder?

2007: The Marrow of a Bone

For all you shits that actually care about what the lyrics are, this one's in English! hahahahhahaha. This track is another one of my favourites, finishing off a heavy album, where Kyo flaunts his vocal prowess, with Karou, Toshiya and Die all contributing backing vocals throughout the album. I have no idea if there is any meaning in the song, and the cockroach on the microphone and goosestepping horse lawyers are bewildering. The track ends with "One day I will fuck your parents", I am assuming that the whole production is shock value. I love it.

2008: Uroboros

Uroboros is hands down my absolute favourite of Dir En Grey. The band dispersed for two months and all members worked and wrote songs in isolation, and then reconvened and assembled this. The Uroboros after which this album is named is the serpent that circles the world to bite it's own tail, a symbol of norse and germanic culture symbolising continuity and rebirth and that sort of thing. The album is tasty all the way through, and there was a fortnight where I'd listen to Vinushka at least 3 times a day. The song sings of the nuclear devastation wrought to Japan, and I guess could be described as a metal ballad? It's gorgeous whatever it is.

2011: Dum Spiro Spero

Do you think they're trying to appeal to stereotypes here? Or maybe they're criticising Japanese porn. Either way I found this music video hilarious the first time I saw it. The album itself fails to meet the bar set impossibly high by Uroboros, but I still rate highly. I feel it trades melody for guitar angriness. I dunno.

2014: Arche

Have you ever wanted to try mermaid sashimi? This music video shows us the band members eating a mermaid, a women with a prosthetic limb, Kyo's incredible front, Shinya incredible hair, and everyone is playing in ?fish tanks? Dir En Grey might be trying to challenge our perspective of what is human? I'm not really sure, but I come for music not for philosophy.

2016: A Taste of the Future?

Kyo's wearing a kendo hat? This is a promotional track for the vibe of their next album (and their most recent single), which may come out next year, I dunno. But I'm excited anyway

So, what do yous think? Favourite video? Like the music? Were able to distinguish words from the Clever Sleazoid lyrics? let me know
