    Ah yes, and of course, the dropping value of their currency.


    Oh, and also that little island that they puppet, off the coast of Florida...

    Well, from my experiences, Russia is known for:

    AK's
    People wearing those funny furry hats
    Yuri
    Those buildings with the weird roofs
    Stalin
    Communism... "Go Communism!"


    That's what makes Russia look so big.

    it's

    xing1 gong4 tong2 ben3
    (in hanyu pinyin)

    which means

    xing = new
    gong tong = together
    ben = foundation???

    i bet all of you are puzzled...

    A very close translation.

    'Shin - Kyou - dou - tai ' is the correct reading of the kana, however, contextually, 'Kyou - dou ' is refering to a 'community'
    Thus 'Kyou - dou - tai ' being a community group as in special interest group.
    Prefix with 'shin-' new, and yeah, you basically got it.

    HEHEH, practically everything i own is not made in the USA (better check to see if it does have a MADE in the usa label ^_~)

    My car = 100% made in Japan
    My motorcycle = !00% made in Japan
    my computer = built in America, parts from Taiwan/China/Korea

    Well, that's true with most of the Japanese items...you know, take something, make it 100 x better than the original.....:P


    anyway, it "does" exist in the Japanese language..
    They don't make it 100x better. They just take it, and brand it with a huge "made in Japan" seal give it to their weirdly-named exporters to sell.
