My teenaged daughter mostly plays vocaloid songs on our long, long car rides. Yamaha owns the vocaloid technology

They even made a keyboard synthesizer only available in Japan that's specific to producing vocaloid music.

Comment: marriage was a disaster for me (Score 1) 950

Thanks to my marriage, I'm on the hook for 20 years of giving up 20% of my paycheck. Although I love my daughter, every single other aspect of my marriage destroyed me -- loss of income means living in a basement apartment with little sunlight but centipedes and poor heating because that's all I could afford. I was an emotional wreck for a year. My wife didn't love me, and attempting to find a girlfriend since then has been fruitless -- the women I meet who are willing to date me are hardly the cream of the crop. I'm better off watching porn than seeking the admiration of women who themselves seek the money I don't have.

In some cultures, tattoos and body modifications are considered an assault on god's temple (your body). Although it's an instinct with me, more than learned behavior, I subconsciously wonder why people with tattoos hate themselves so much they cover their body with writing (or puncture wounds, or metal placed in private places). You can express your individuality in a number of ways, why do it to your body in such an irreversible manner?

All constants are variables.
