comment Since Japanese already had several words for rice why was “ライス” (raisu) borrowed from English?
Jeshii: I've noticed that the large-ish chain ramen shops (Sugakiya, that one with the turtle mascot (なになに一番?)) don't seem to have rice, but the smaller ones often do - specifically fried rice, or チャハン, which can be ordered in combination with a bowl of ramen. They go quite well together. That being said, I can't recall ever seeing the word ライス.

comment What to say after someone sneezes
"Nothing" is also what one of my teachers told us when asked this exact question. It seems odd and awkward to me too, but I guess that's just my typical American racist ethnocentrism, to paraphrase various college professors.
