which one is correct

karyukai-is-life  asked:

A quick question on the romanization of a maiko's name. For 市結 of Katsumi okiya in Pontocho I have seen: Ichiyu, Ichiyuu, and Ichiyui. Which one is correct?

The correct spelling is either Ichiyū or Ichiyuu as the bar across the “u” in the first spelling denotes that there should be a second “u” after the first one. Ichiyui would be the most likely way to say her name if you didn’t know how to pronounce the kanji as it’s most often seen as “yui.” In this case the Katsumi okasan decided that it should be pronounced as “yū/yuu” and not “yui”.

Overly Analytical Problem #29

When test questions don’t contain enough information…

Seriously. How am I supposed to answer when there are 29 ways the question could be taken, 35 variables that aren’t specified, and 7 different ways of writing any of the possible answers!!!

That’s… 7,105 potentially correct answers and nothing indicating which one to choose!!!

  • Dinah: It's whoever, not whomever
  • Lauren: No, it's whomever
  • Dinah: No, whomever is never actually right.
  • Normani: No, sometimes it's right
  • Ally: Dinah is right. It's a made-up word used to trick students.
  • Lauren: No. Actually whomever is the formal version of the word.
  • Normani: Obviously it's a real word, but I don't know when to use it correctly.
  • Camila: I know what's right, but I'm not gonna say, because you're all jerks who didn't come see my karaoke performance last night.
  • Lauren: Do you really know which one is correct?
  • Camila: I don't know.
  • Normani: It's 'whom' when its the object of a sentence and 'who' when it's the subject
  • Ally: How did Lauren use it? As an object?
  • Lauren: As an object
  • Camila: Lauren used me as an object
After watching Pitch Perfect:
  • Me: Alright kiddo, pop quiz. Which one is Chloe?
  • 4 yr old cousin: Oh I like Chloe! She's my favorite. She's really pretty and has red hair and is really nice to Beca.
  • Me: Wow, okay. Which one is Beca?
  • Cousin: She's the one with (brown) hair like me and likes Chloe too.
  • Me: Nice. Okay, which one is Jesse?
  • Cousin: Who's Jesse?
  • Me: ...
  • Me: Correct.
A thing I noticed in the newest Star Vs comic

So in listing bad things that could come from changing the past, Star says “and you’ll still be hanging out with Ferguson and Alfonzo!

She seems pretty certain that this would be a bad thing, and Marco doesn’t correct her. Which seems weird, in season one they were certainly still Marco’s friends all the way to the end, and in season two them not being present has been mostly attributed to some sort of retcon.

But this line from the comic, along with Marco mentioning Ferguson in Naysaya, leads me to think there might be an in-universe explanation for why we haven’t seen them. And given how suddenly they vanished, and how Star states definitely that they are not hanging out anymore, I think it’s plausible to theorize that something went down between seasons that was more than just them gradually drifting apart.
