I learned two new words in Japanese tonight that are borrowed/created from combining English words and they’re hilarious to me.
ヴァージンロード (baajin roodo - taken from “virgin road”) means “wedding aisle”
パイプカット (paipu cutto - taken from “pipe cut”) means “vasectomy”

Ahahahhah, they're great!

The wedding aisle will forever be the virgin road to me now!

Just another thing on my mind that I might make into a blog post. It was about frank self defense.

Reality is, most people don't know how to fight, and I've seen too many people give themselves a false sense of security by taking one or two self defense courses, thinking that's enough to protect them.

If you intend to learn how to fight, learn an actual combat sport like boxing, BJJ, wrestling, etc. at the very least and spar as often as possible so you get conditioned to taking and receiving hits and how to deal with the situation.

If you carry a weapon, know how to use it, practice, take some courses. They're there for a reason.

On top of that, even little things like situational awareness really helps to avoid most fights.

I’m debating whether or not to upgrade to the new iPhone 11 Pro Max. My X works amazing and if I wait a few more months it’ll be paid off in full.

I’m all about reducing expenses however the midnight matte green looks so amazing.

First world problems I guess.

The pencil I always use for drawing is a 10+ year old mechanical pencil held together with tape and I think it's only for ritualistic reasons that I don't find another pencil to use at this point.

Time to go listen to Starset's new album, I guess. Hopefully they've managed to salvage what they've released as singles so far. MNQN sounds more like Starset at this point.

Currently, I'm wondering how I'm going to avoid getting eliminated in a game that's going on in another forum I'm on.
