Today, a game called Magicka came out, a little home brewed game about magic and wizards. It's a bit broken so far, but they'll fix it, no doubt. With that in mind, a fun part of magicka is it's pop culture references. The beam spells are one of them.
Japanese Word of the Day is: 交わる
English Word of the Day is: Juxtapose
Majiwaru means to cross or intersect or mix. Funnily enough, it also means to copulate. But that's not the meaning we're trying for today. Nice easy kanji to remember and relatively common usage, majiwaru is today's Japanese Word of the Day!
Today's related English word is Juxtapose, which means to put two things that ordinarily do not fit together, together, or to superimpose them across each other. A sort of mixing of two different, completely dissimilar things. Sort of like someone fat having a skinny girlfriend. Some juxtapositions are aesthetically pleasing as, although they don't match, it works because of how striking or odd it is, and obviously some don't.
Majiwaru in a sentence: ビムを交わわらなくちゃいけない！
Don't cross the beams!
Well, thats about it for me today. Tell me in the comment section if you bought and have enjoyed Magicka *or* what your favourite joke is!
