    Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.

    Miyano Mamoru Foreign Language Compilation
    laugh, cry, and bow before the king

    [Ouran High School Host Club] Suou Tamaki: …From now on will you let me call you by your first name? Bravo! Kyouya! Mon ami! Mon ami! Yahoo! (ep. 24)

    [Steins;Gate] Okabe Rintarou: Uh…hey, mister! I am mad scientist. ‘s so cool! Sonuvabitch. (ep. 15)

    Ah…I am mad scientist! United States (chaos/goes?) and invade! …Oh! American joke! I’m a smart citizen. Do you understand? Do you understand? (ep. 25/OVA)

    [Chihayafuru 2] Mashima Taichi: Forgive me, but your pronunciation is not correct. Maybe you can more easily speak Japanese than English— can’t you? (ep. 8)

    [Free!] Matsuoka Rin: Furious all-out · All-out(x3) · Perfect body (ep. 10)

    In this case, the antecedent is “the time," so the relative verb is "when.” Now is the time when I must try hard. (Free! Special - FrFr 3)

    [Tokyo Ghoul] Tsukiyama Shuu: Ravissant · Merci · Merci beaucoup · Be cool · Monsieur Savarin · Tschüss · Bon appétit · Non · …in a maestoso location, with Kaneki-kun reaching a crescendo, until at last I… fortissimo · Bonsoir, mademoiselle · I was eighteen · Très bien! · Calmato · Such an unexpected hors d’oeuvre! (full post)

    you can take one man’s trash to another man’s treasure but you can’t make it drink

    Fun fact: the blending of idioms or cliches is called a malaphor.

    My personal favorite is “We’ll burn that bridge when we get to it.”
