This Tumblr Thread Highlights How F*cked Up Languages Are

If you've ever studied a language then you know how stressful it can be, and it doesn't help that native speakers can't even explain to you why the rules are the way that they are!

Japanese game shows are famously entertaining, and Slippery Stairs is no exception. Watching these rainbow-suited contestants struggle to ascend some seriously slick stairs is painfully funny. Hopefully we'll get a similar show on this side of the world.

Fast Food of The Day: McDonald's in Japan Will Sell a 48-Piece Chicken Nugget Meal

48 chicken nuggets, 2,256 calories, no regrets.

McDonald's in Japan is planning on offering a 48-piece chicken nugget meal. The United States currently offers a 40-piece, so maybe this doesn't seem like a big deal.

But it is. Because the largest current chicken nugget meal in Japan is a 15-piece.

From Kotaku:

Likewise, the offer is for a limited time only. It's available only in Niigata Prefecture and part of a promotional tie-up with the the newly launched pop group NGT48, the Niigata-based spin-off of the massively popular idol unit AKB48. The groups tend to have around 48 members (sometimes more, sometimes less), divided up into different teams. That's a lot of idols. That's okay, this is a lot of nuggets. Forty-eight nuggets is surely a whole chicken, no? Fifty has to be.

King Curtis is very happy with this decision.
