That is a wonderful quote! ... and moves me to expand on the topic of Alice in Wonderland and how deeply it has influenced modern culture:

"This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill ...the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill ...you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more."

"Mochi- MOE-chi is a round traditional Asian ice cream-filled 'nugget' of goodness. There is a bit of a gummy layer on the outside. Flavors often include green tea..."
Some dumb asshole on YouTube who doesn't actually know what mochi is
Asshole? Really? More like pathetic if the context behind their comment was for them to feel superior

It totally was, because the person speaking in the video said they didn't know what mochi was and then someone made the above comment.

One of my biggest pet peeves is people talking about things like they know about them when the information they're giving is totally wrong.

Another example would be someone talking about the Great Hanshin Earthquake recently, saying it was an 8.0 magnitude (it was 6.9) and saying hundreds of people died (6,434 people died).

It gets on my delicate nerves oh so badly.
*mocks you* REEEEEEEEE!!!!

I'm sorry I understand your perspective, I just starting laughing because in my perspective the word "asshole" is like something u say to someone when they make u 200% mad. And personally I wouldn't get mad at such a thing so I laughed. I'd probably add a comment and be like "bishh ur so wrong lemme give you actual FACTS" and then say it.

And yeah I know that it's one of ur pet peeves, sweet Emilia

I originally wrote "cunt" in my first iteration of the post, but I felt it was too mean.

And I did correct them. I don't mind taking the time to try and educate misinformed people.

Oooooh, you're so naughty Emmy chan, you said "cunt" I think I'm falling in love with you (just kidding) LOL

I wish I had the courage to say cunt on an open forum but I'm ashamed to say I'm to damn fucking cuntingly polite (but being able to say cunt is so damn fucking liberating ... hold my hand, I'm a stranger in paradise)

Lao Tzu was a brilliant ancient Chinese philosopher, who, I think, lived in 4th century. He wrote the book Tao Te Ching from which that quote was taken. He is also credited as one of the founders of Taoism.

Another wonderful one:

“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”
Lao Tzu

“You'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know.

You'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go.

So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact

and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.

Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.

And never mix up your right foot with your left.”

Above all, don’t wish

Your only concern should be,

To avoid clinging to any of them.

"Remember: It costs nothing to encourage an artist, and the potential benefits are staggering.

A pat on the back to an artist now could one day result in your favorite film, or the anime you love to get stoned watching, or the song that saves your life.

Discourage an artist, you get absolutely nothing in return, ever.”

excerpt from the song "girls need love"
I like how the title of that song is "Girls Need Love" when it's basically about her wanting to get fucked.

Me too, I found watching his videos so informative and helpful before my visit to Japan, and he is often very funny. A great sense of humor is a teachers greatest gift. I love this guy!
I never kept up with the fashions. I believed in wearing what I thought looked good on me.
