I wasn't actually "tearing" them down, I was gently pulling them off the wall to put them inside the classes instead. It was awkward nonetheless, hope this clears things up.

13 - you clearly don't speak Japanese, or know how Japanese people pronounce English words. They don't turn W into R. Why should they?! They mix up L and R.

They don't "mess up" Ls and Rs, they just don't have the L sound in their "alphabet". The closest they have is the R sounds: ra, ri, ru, re, ro, so they substitute them.

Yea except the FML states he was "tearing" them off. That implies..well it implies he was TEARING THEM OFF THE WALL. Therefore the idea of handing them out or pretending he was putting them up, falls flat on its face.

I am sure they were still appreciative.

Most universities have stamps for posters indicating that it's approved to be posted around campus and for how long. Even assuming these posters were dated and it was past that date, as previously stated, op should not be taking any posters down unless it was expressly his job. And op, if you WERE doing your job, there's no fml. You could then easily have explained to the Japanese reporters that the university had run a campaign that was now over, and you were making space for new events.

The US has enough problems, let's deal with those first before we help anyone else.

I do not understand why everyone call 23 an idiot? Considering we have a 100% debt to GDP ratio, the prime concern of our government should be to cut spending, not give money away to foreign countries.

Um, the point is that OP is from the UAE, which, if I'm reading these squiggles on the screen correctly, is not the same as the USA. Derp.

Considering a great number of the population of UAE is the US army and many other overseas jobs, it's safe to say the US has somewhat of an impact on things over there. My mother is actually stationed in the UAE and I, like many American students, had the opportunity to study abroad over there. I guess it was wrong to assume that OP was wrong, it's just that I have seen a lot of Americans study abroad over there.

87, Because regardless of how shitty your situation is, when someone else is worse off then you help them. That's what living in a civilised society is all about.

^That kind of adds to the way people see Americans, as "intrusive". I mean, we have helped many people in countries that aren't doing so well, but a lot of times it just comes back to bite us. We don't always have to be the ones spending our time and money "saving" countries in need.

123, Sending money to help a nation is completely different to "OK we supply the money we make the rules". No nation that supplies support to a struggling nation comes off looking bad.

Fuck that. No one sends the US help when shit like natural disasters and 9/11 happen. The US helps everyone but the ones that REALLY need it and is always spending money to solve every other country's problem but their own. And then people wonder why the economy sucks and we don't have money. Sad but true as a hard shit.

36, you're a fucking idiot. The Japanese government AND its private citizens donated over $15 million to the US after Hurricane Katrina. People like you - who talk shit without any knowledge of the subject you're taking about - suck ass.

36 Learn your shit b4 making Americans look bad, several countries have helped us, during hurricane Katrina & Rita, several countries sent food, medicine, & clothing. Mexico sent a convoy of soldiers 2 help w/distributing aid & recuse & recovery efforts. So shut the fuck up & go read a newspaper everyone once in awhile. 63 don't generalize not all of us r self centered, only a few ignorant fucks r. I'm greatful 4 the help we've received, as I'm sure other countries r 4 the aid they've received from us.

36- you're basically stating that you only pay attention to the bigger picture. the economy is mainly due to US citizens spending more on things they can't afford. also a plane crashing into a building is not as bad as 2 earthquakes, a tsunami, and dangerous nuclear waste spilled. and other countries do send help, just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there. please use your brain next time

Not as bad is in the eye of the beholder. I think it's equally as bad for different reasons. Natural disasters are horrible with property and more importantly life loss. But losing alot of lives and now even more who are sick due to trying to help because of senseless violence caused by fear and hate is just as bad. Both incidents will impact the citizens of the respective countries for a long time to come. Not to mention chemical pollution that we still don't know the full impact of on the world. Comparing a terrorist attack and a natural disaster seems unreasonable and disrespectful to those victimized by the events IMO.

I agree with 107 - 9/11 wasn't as devastating physically as it was emotionally. It exposed how vulnerable the US actually was, and the murder of thousands of innocent lives just paints a gruesome. I honestly think that we hold 9/11 with much significance compared to other things, such as natural disasters (even if they take more lives) because of the image it hatred and fear it paints, as we have someone to point fingers to. On the other hand, no one is responsible for a natural disaster, and we see it in a different light.

36- You shouldn't really say anything unless you really know something about it -.- it's probably because you have a big mouth and always have to talk

OP: -tearing posters off wall- Reporters: "You! Young man, what you think you doing?" OP: "I'm umm, putting new adhesive on the back of these..." Reporters: "No! LIES! Put back up on wall now." OP: "But, but..." Reporters: "THIS JUST IN! DERANGED MAN SHOWS ACTS OF TREASON."
