comment Does this と mean “and” or “with”?
Aha. So part of my lack of understanding was in how 許可{きょか} can be applied. Thanks for clearing that up!

comment Usage of まるで with 見ているようだった.
I worked in animation, and these are some of the terms we used. One was デジタル映像{えいぞう} which is a catchall term for digital generated graphics, whether it was 2D or 3D, still or moving. We said 3Dアニメ for 3D computer graphics. Sometimes we said CGI, but most people not in the industry just called it CG. Hope that helps.

comment へ or に particle for 曲がる?
@Pacerier: As far as I know 「左へ曲がる」 is about the course you're on, and would not refer to turning on your axis. I'll edit my answer for more clarity.

comment Difference between これから、いまから
@Lukman: When saying これから気をつけます, it's not that the amount of time is any longer than if you said いまから気をつけます, it's that the これ refers more to whatever is happening now that is the life lesson that is the cause of being careful.

comment 酔う vs 酔っ払う: does it depend on how drunk you are?
I think you should have a shot of 焼酎{しょうちゅう} for each upvote, and then let us know if you feel 酔{よ}っている or 酔{よ}っ払{ぱら}っている. ;)

comment Why does 微妙 become “sucky” in slang usage?
I think what @sawa is getting at is on track. "Subtle" and 微妙 are definitely not by themselves negative, and can be used in situations where they are not bad (like a subtly good taste as in sawa's example). I think what yadokari is experiencing is that without context, vague descriptions are usually taken as negative, I think in English and Japanese, maybe even most languages. So maybe yadokari's friends are telling him 微妙 is decidedly negative because if you ask just about the word, and not about a context it is in, then one might mainly consider the negative.
