ROMANIAN SCHOLARSHIPS
study-in-romania
https://www.studyinromania.gov.ro/
The Romanian government has a program handing out 18k scholarship to foreign citizens each year. These scholarship include free tuition, free accommodation and a small monthly stipend.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOW ROMANIAN. IF YOU DON'T, YOU CAN STUDY IN ENGLISH, FRENCH, GERMAN OR HUNGARIAN.

There is no age limit. There is no catch. You get free tuition, free accommodation and a small monthly stipend. You will have to buy food and clothes on your own, but you can get a job.

Why is better than 'RUSSIAN SCHOLARSHIPS'? Because Romania is a part of the European Union, so you won't have any issues with getting a long-term Visa. Also, Romanian economy is much more stable that Russia's.
Recently there has been a series of civil unrest in Russia, which was a hard blow at the already unstable economy of Russia.

Also, Romanian women are more accepting of lonely guys and all of the want to have a strong healthy family.
If you're a lonely guy looking for education, work and a wife, ROMANIA is your country of choice.

My regards to my good Romanian friend szekler for giving me this idea.

ROMANIA NEEDS YOU.

Welcome to /extraflags/, a lovely spin-off of /flag/ except its a general for users with extra flags to discuss flags, extra flags, and autistic activities while funposting. don't have extra flags? get extra flags :^)

>What are extra flags?
Extra Flags is an open-source and non-malicious plugin that adds regional flags, like states and provinces, to the already existing national flags on /int/, /pol/, /sp/, and /bant/, by storing users' post number along with the selected regional flags, and retrieving it from a database when a thread is loaded. You can add your region's flag by requesting it on the GitLab page.

I don't know what Jewish people will think of Asians,
But when I am seeing Jewish people I found pretty common with Asian people. Sympathy.

They do no crimes.
There is no special ideology they pursue, no gun or gang hooding, no violence
Just do their job fine and they eventually pursue practicality.
In other words, education, money, studying or workholism.

They do what they can do.
Studying and working hard. Accomplishing.
And eventually replacing the societies higher hyracies by themselves.

And dumb, walking chimpanzee tier subhumans sperg the fuck out about it.
And they don't admit that they lose in the game. And soon claim that the game was cheated or rigged,
And says some kind of ridiculous unofficial thing is actual real game (just like black people accept success only of sportsman or gang member or rappers)

Sometimes people try to drag down the target even harder especially when the group is doing very well even without leaving any excusable mistakes.

Attaching fabricated words such as "soulless"

Soul in what?
If you ain't holding a gun in da hood, and put yo pants down until yo motherfucking good lookin ass, and don't eat watermelon and chicken,
That counts that you are being "soulless" from black peoples eyes.

Dont you get it?
Dont degrade the people with honor and hardworking strong pride.
And remember, if you keep persisting to live like that, you will eventually end up licking those "soulless" peoples boots.

DJT - Daily Japanese Thread #2516

DJT is the best Japanese language learning vtuber shitposting thread on 4chan for むっつりスケベ共 that are interested in everything Japanese (no politics >>>/pol/)
Japanese speakers learning English are also welcome

How to heal COVID and flu with amantadine/rimantadine hydrochloride:
http://kisu.me/1kiS

The only way to learn 日本語:
1.無理があんのよ
2.Don't waste time/money on ゴミ like:
-Shitty apps, 英語 youtube channels, Genki, Imabi, RTK, KKLC, Kanji Damage, Wanikani, Duolingo, language schools, AJATT, JLPT, Kanji Kentei tests and other scams
-Awful anki decks (only 2k/6k from the OP and a simple yomichan mining deck are ok)
-You shouldn't spend more than 1-2 hours on Anki as a beginner and 20 minutes max after a few months, spamming easy is fine, Anki is only good at the start to prepare you for the journey
-Pitch accent (doesn't exist, you can say words however you want http://kisu.me/1kiU )
-Learning how to write on paper (you can do it later once you're decent at Japanese)
Avoiding these beginner traps will cut down your learning time considerably to less than 5 years if you learn every day and never give up, since the following points are what actually teaches you Japanese
3.Take care of yourself, get some vitamins, read cosmetic ingredients, switch fluoride for hydroxyapatite, opt for natural ingredients if possible
4.Spend a few days getting familiar with hiragana and katakana
5.A few months of Anki 2k/6k vocabulary and Tae Kim grammar while reading something easy on the side
6.A few years of reading, listening, watching vtubers, shitposting in /djt/ and having your posts corrected by Jap flags, googling stuff you don't know and you're done!
7.Play Umineko
8.Move to Japan
9.Realize there's always more to learn and the ride never ends

Toutism economy is the most humiliating economy of all

You are basically selling out your sovereignity (by turning your country into a resort for foreigners), you lose your house because they turn into airbnb and you have to bend over to rich people in hopes they will reward your "hospitality"

I am overtly agressive to tourists and tell them to fuck off to their shitholes on a regular basis. If i'm in a bad mood and see them out for drinks at night i make sure to crash my bottle in their heads.

>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fagging
>The senior, sometimes called the fag-master, was the protector of his fags and responsible for their happiness and good conduct.[1] In case of any problem outside the classroom, such as bullying or injustice, a junior boy's recourse was to him, not to a form master or housemaster, and, except in the gravest cases, all incidents were dealt with by the fag-master on his own responsibility.
>Fagging was sometimes associated with sexual abuse.[4]:215–244[5] Christopher Tyerman, writing about the history of Harrow School, stated that in some situations, fagging could either encourage or conceal sexual activity between boys, and that at Harrow, fagging began to decline at around the same time as homosexuality was eradicated as an acceptable part of the boarding school environment.
so any of the brits here have any experience with fagging, have you ever been a fag, or a fag-master

I have always felt an absolute indifference about the USA, but now I'm starting to hate them.

>Now censorship is fashionable in our society, so we are going to try to pressure other countries to have it through censorship on social networks.

Why do you bother the rest of us? We're not such a huge asshole.

Always a fucking joy, standing in line to buy some groceries, in front of you a kid, no older than 22, clearly operating at approximately 7% the brain matter he was originally born with, struggling to mutter the words "cheapezd vodka pleaz". The cashier tries to present him with several different choices - god knows why, he clearly cannot comprehend a single word. It is a miracle he can still move his limbs. He hands her a fistful of coins to count, grabs the change, his bottle, and leaves. There goes another valuable member of our society. A true patriot. A precious human being who's life, heath, and most importantly - freedom - must be protected

german vs english
Why is English still considered a Germanic language? "Germanic roots" doesn't really mean anything other than that the Anglo-Saxons used to speak a Germanic language (Old-English).

>50% of the English vocabulary language consists of Latin/Vulgar/Anglo-French terminology
>Morphologically, English is a linguistic prison with no room for creative expansion/conceptualization
>Etymologically, English became ambiguous and "devoid of meaning" once retrofitted onto the Romance framework (meaning cannot be derived from the words themselves)

The percentage of modern English words derived from each language group are as follows: Latin ≈29% French ≈29% Germanic ≈26% Greek ≈6% Others ≈10%

What are the implications of this? Did English evolve endemically from its own speakers, or was it constructed by an elite class of noblemen and clerics who didn't want their subjects to think outside the pleb-box?

>you: b-but, 90% of English core vocabulary is rooted in Germanic etymology
me: true, but why are high-level concepts within spirituality, government, science, racial unity, complex emotions, etc. not rooted? Shakespearians want you to believe such concepts didn't exist in Old-English, and boy are they wrong.

Try for yourself, give me proper Anglo cognates for Germanic concepts like:

>Vorstellungen (noun)
>vermochten (adv.)
>aussichtslos (adj.)
>geschikt (adj.)
>Gemeinschaft (noun)
>begriffsstutzig (adj.)
>erkämpfen (verb)
>unwesentlich (adj.)
>einflusslos (adj.)
>ungehörig (adj.)

I know the strips-n-stars will defend this, saying they've got plenty of variation between people.

But you don't, as a demographic. How can we help US-bros realizing, that there's more to the world than absolutes?

That climate change is not for/against.
That feminism isn't about matriarchy to replace patriarchy.

I know it's a little serious for /int/, but still, any ideas?
