Oh, thank you man, I actually had a whole other question lined up, but my copy and past skills (and brain skills) are not up to snuff today :)

comment What does 正宗で大根を切る。 言い出しっぺ。 mean?
@summea: I did sort of debate with myself as the phrases do seem to be idiomatic which is a bit more than a standard dictionary look-up. I don't think it will be closed at this point, especially with you're very good answer :) @ gekkostate, next time if you can just tell us what Google translated it to, and/or why that doesn't sit right/what you don't understand, I think it would be perfectly fine >^.^<

It would help of you could be specific about what you don't understand, or what you've translated so far. As it is I'm afraid I'm going to vote to close as this is too close to a pure translation question.

I second your guess :) It seems like just a shortened form to me :)

comment What does “僕が来る前からこーだったんですが?” mean?
Hello there :) We generally frown on pure translation questions, so this may be closed. If you can break down the sentence and find what specifically you don't understand (for example "my dictionary says X means A, but in this context I still don't understand what it means"), that's more within the scope of JLU. Another option is coming to the chat-room with translation questions, we're always happy to help if we can!
