2020??? O_O

I've been wondering, actually, about the nationality of Miss Mi (that sounded weird, sorry). It's just that, I am from Hong Kong, so I was surprised to see someone use traditional chinese online (usually all the fanatics type in simplfied so I assumed they were from the mainland). Which part of China, if at all, are you from? Or are you from somewhere else and just learned Chinese along the way? (That'd be amazing, people I know always complain about how learning Chinese as a secoundary language sucks)

This is how people make a "sticky" post on the top of their blogs, by setting the time of the post to waaaaaaaaaay into the future. (Hatsune Miku Miku for example, the post on top that have link to videos and the "vocaloid schedule", that entry's date is set to December 31, 2008.)

I'm from mainland. But I'm the sucker that can read both simplified and traditional. (Thanks to me used to borrow traditional Chinese books from a small Chinese library.) Still can't understand what's so hard about understanding traditional Chinese. >_>

Ah, I see.

Well, I don't think it's hard understanding traditional Chinese, but I don't get why there would be a need for two different writing styles, if some people think so. It's not like it's making people learn Chinese any easier, and the simplfied letters aren't exactly "simplfied" anyways, some of them look completely different. -_-' So why not just use traditional?

I never learned simplfied Chinese so I fail. orz

Well *nosy*, back when they introduced Simplified Chinese, most of China consisted of peasants and illiterate people.
Because of the revolution, they wanted people to learn how to read and write, and so they introduced the simplified character system that's (theoretically) easier to read, learn, and write (and is uglier). I guess they believed that would be a faster way of getting the nation mass 'educated'. Ugly, and it didn't really work that well. But the damage was done, and there's this written system that's hardly simple, but taught to most kids =\
I don't think traditional Chinese is hard to understand...but I really fail, I can't read Chinese at all xD

Sorry for butting in T_T

Thanks for the Chinese history! (Man, I've totally forgottern about that if I ever learned it in school... >_>; )

Simplified Chinese IS simplified in some words though...

Horse, trad: 馬
Horse, simp: 马

When I'm in a hurry, I usually just write in simplified Chinese because they have less strokes.

That's the problem, it's useless! There are indeed some simplifications, but as a language it really isn't all that much simplfied /__\

and thanks for reminding me the history, I totally forgot all that stuff, I'm not even sure I actually learned it in school or something...orz

This is so off-topic so we need some fanaticism in here how the heck does miku's braids hold her twintails like that and Anima for next vocaloid

Ah...Well, it's something small and silly that probably wouldn't be taught. I'm just the type of person that knows a little bit of everything and a lot about nothing OTL.
(Yes, I also surf wiki in my spare time >___>)

Yanno, I bet hair that long would weigh at least ~2kg on the head. And that's a lot. (strong neck...or rather, since we're Chinese here, stiff neck ;D *shot*)(And that's not considering it gets fatter at the end...) If we take that away from her gross weight...

Can I get a translation from kg to lbs? America sucks for having a total different unit system.
