Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Because EE is full of uncultured swines.


My favourite colour is red. I don't know why, I guess it's just in my blood.

The left symbol means "sun". The right symbol means "origin". Together they mean "the origin of the sun".

Re: What are the dojo symbols in EE?

in Mandarin it reads "ri ben", which translates to "Japan"

"ri" means sun, and "ben" is a measure word for books

Probably because lots of Japanese kanji is stolen taken from Chinese. Plus, your average white person can't tell the difference.

Re: What are the dojo symbols in EE?

They mean Japan when they are together in this order 日本

These are kanjis, which are chinese letters. I guess that's where the tag comes from. Japanese uses kanjis too though.
Kanjis can have different meanings, you can find them in dictionaries.

The way their words for countries can be read are the best. Switzerland is just "congratulations west" and Canada has "what?" in it.

I think counter for days refers to dates. If you say June 18th for example, that'd be 6月18日.
EDIT: I guess it works for counting days in general too.

Japanese has different "counters" for different kind of things. If you count flat things, it'll be: Ichimai, nimai, sanmai... (一枚, 二枚, 三枚。。。)
For those long cylindrical things it is: ippon, nihon, sanbon... (一本, 二本, 三本。。。)
(一, 二, 三 = 1, 2, 3)

Yeah but you need to put '間' after the '日' (e.g. 三日間 is 3 days).
