    Japanese use JIS but A size is the same with ISO so there’s no confusion here. For B size there’s slight difference in JIS and ISO, but as end user I hardly print anything other than A4 so haven’t encountered problems myself.

    Some mushrooms can be poisonous after 24h, just in case. angel wing mushroom shows no digestive symptoms but encephalopathy after 2 day to 1 month of latent period. The mushroom was known to be edible for a long time. Were it not for full screening for encephalopathy cases (enforced due to SARS spread back in 2004), it could’ve remain “edible” still now.

    So its like they’re living compressed png world chosing 4bit as color depth (it’s 16 colors tho). I’m no retro gamer but some old graphics presents unbelievable level of expression with limited colors, so it’s possible they’re seeing something amazing still.



  • From a country who strips one’s citizenship if one gets another (Japan) and following the court cases to allow dual citizenship I say the motivation for dual citizenship is not because so that they can work for their origin country. Duties and rights of citizen work in both ways.

    From what I can tell the main motivation for citizenship is a) directly related restriction in job market ( eg. operating license for the field) or b) to legalize and secure their right to stay with their family members. Immigrants have financially attached to the country of living and their decision is often practical, and their vote is dependent on whether the policy is beneficial to them, like people with single citizenship.

    It needs proper background check for sure, but the argument of foreign interference is fear mongering and often xenophobic imo.

    I think I need multiple Venn diagram to understand this. Or math sign like faith ∋ religion, faith ∋ mythology.

    A religion requires an overarcing system of formal beliefs or dogma that it teaches.

    Based on the that your line, religion needs structure. In Greek mythology, having hierarchy of gods doesn’t affect faith for each gods so it’s not work as a structured faith, so it’s not religion; is that what you meant?

    The thing is I don’t think requiring structure is applicable to describe all the faiths of nowadays that layperson like me considers religion, and that’s the confusion I guess.

    For instance the Taoism’s history and pratices are diverse, so it’s faith and not religion just like greek mythology. Or Shinto, more close to animism (which is wht I referred animisn it in my first post).


  • I’m just curious, but the definition sounds like distinguishing between religion and faith not exactly religion and mythology. Animism or shamanism doesn’t always have overarching dogma to teach nor actively ask other people to believe in them. Ancient Greek people did some rituals and sacrifice, that practices they did doesn’t count as religion?

    You are likely to only refer more than current era. If you’re writing govmet grant application, renewing licence or certificate, chances are you mention events hapenned in previous era. You look up table for when the previous era started and ended, which era said year falls into, then convert for each year, each era. Extra minutes wasted every time instead of simply writing in Gregorian year.
