The only people I ever see wearing pajamas in public are bleached-blonde, fat white girls buying Newport 100's and Mountain Dew at the Speedway.

In college I always saw students roll out of bed and basically come to class in pajamas or their doctor parents' scrubs. All that was missing was a pair of slippers. I thought it was strange and a bit disrespectful to the profs.

FTFA: Its guidelines were particularly critical of men who wore white socks with black shoes

Now for this the Chinese government deserves praise.

How about starting some "melamine police" to make sure food that comes out of your shiatty country isn't poisonous, China?

/oh, did I hurt your feelings?

When I first read the subby, I thought it said pygmy police. And thinking what does pygmy police have to do with pajamas.

No, it isn't disrespectful.

Note: We don't really give a shiat what hot coeds wear. Evar. Except for those farking ugly ass furry boots with jeans tucked in. Those are just retarded. And Crocs, but no self-respecting college student (or human being) would wear Crocs.

Too bad SE Asia gets the bad rap for violations by heifer sized Chinese women (they can be found in every single Asian country). Seeing the Thai and Khmer hotties in jammies = heavenly goodness. They rank up there with crispy bacon and free beer.

The thought of seeing lardly white bleached-blonde she-whales in the jammies = think rutabaga-tofu and bud light. No thanks.

Not by a long shot. This is my mother-in-laws bathroom. She lives in a small village in NE China.

Ok, can we get something straight that's been bothering me with the Engrish thing?

L=R, example: "LOL becomes "ROR"

R=W, example: "Restroom" becomes "Westwoom"

R!==L because they don't say L in the 1st place.

We don't hear "Restroom" pronounced "Lestloom" we hear "Westwoom"

That's pretty much the same way that my one Chinese-American friend described the village where he lived as a kid in China. Only I think that his village's communal outhouse had a floor covered in woodchips, and little blocks where you'd stand.

Yeah, tell that to my girlfriend's Chinese mom who can't find her 'business fires' in her 'fire cabinet'. Someone must have set them on file.

Don't know how true it is, but I've 'heard' (via WWII propaganda and 1950s/60s American media) that the Japanese have trouble with L and Chinese have trouble with R.

Mandapants: Don't know how true it is, but I've 'heard' (via WWII propaganda and 1950s/60s American media) that the Japanese have trouble with L and Chinese have trouble with R.


The Japanese "r" is actually pronounced in a manner somewhere inbetween the English "l" and "r".

"baseball" becames "basaboru", but the r is palatized.

AFAIK, it's "beisuboru". But right on about the palatized "r".

lavatories and bathhouses are popular in China and Japan. Easy way to talk to friends, while soaking in the steamy water.

Mandarin Chinese L is virtually identical to the English L.

Mandarin Chinese R is different from the English R, but it is relatively similar, and it does exist. (Its kinda of like the "su" sound in the word "leisure".

Mandarin Chinese W is kind of a combination of the English W and V. (Make the W sound, but have your top lip on your bottom teeth like you do for the V sound.)

And, yes.... I see people walking around in their PJs all the time here in Beijing. Its no big deal.
