最初は国境を越えようとする人は射殺するべきだと言ってたんですよね。それは違法だと言われるとじゃ足を撃てと。それもダメだと言われると3歳児のように叫び出した。これが大国アメリカの首相です。こういう輩が当選したんです。恐ろしいことです。 twitter.com/spearsden/stat…

実は本当の美空ひばりにも感動したことないんだけどなあ。どうも好きになれなかった。お上手だったけど。日本語はね。英語の方は非常に微妙だった。あの時代にもっとずっと上手に英語で歌える歌手いたよ。 twitter.com/nhk_n_sp/statu…

The translator chose to translate 大きな衝撃を与えた - “had a big impact” - as “took the biscuit”. Which isn’t really one known my American English speakers, gives it a British or Canadian feel, and arguably adds a note of whimsy where there is none.

The original text in Japanese: 東京電力福島第一原発の事故直後、警戒区域(原発から半径20キロ)は立ち入りが禁止され、残された家畜やペットが野生化していった。街中を歩き回る牛や豚。その中でも大きな衝撃を与えたのがダチョウだ。その後、どうなったのだろうか。

The content of this article is interesting, but as a language nerd/translator the “takes a biscuit” bothers me. This is a British or Canadian idiom. You really shouldn’t use idioms in translations, IMO. asahi.com/ajw/articles/A…

The asshole has been proven to be a bigger asshole than imagined since, but he still has his diehard supporters who call him a “real samurai” and shit like that. Like those M*GA people in another country.

If ad appearances/sponsorships are an indication of popularity, Naomi is in a gazillion ads. ATM Hakuho is in none, which hurts my heart. (He used to be in several until a major asshole targeted him and a bunch of xenophobia started making him a villain.)

Sports figures that get caught up in this: mixed race ppl like Naomi, Rui Hachimura, Asia Cambridge, Abdul Hakim Sani Brown. But also ones like Hakuho, who recently became naturalized.

Going back to the first tweet by Naomi, the fact that Shiseido, the oldest and most prestigious cosmetics company in Japan, hired her for a sunscreen products says a lot about changing attitudes re what sunscreen is for. youtu.be/KR9V84EihDQ
