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!

comment Is there a Japanese phrase equivalent to “crisis of faith”
It might be helpful to explain a bit more in detail what you are looking for. A native speaker might be able to give you the closest phrase/idea, but if they don't know what you're really looking for to begin with...

comment What do repeated 8s mean in internet slang?
I don't agree with the vote to close saying this is too localized, because it is more pervasive throughout the internet then just seen in one little corner of it. If this was only seen on one site, then I would agree.

There's also 大の字, which is if someone is in the "spread eagle" position :)

仲間言葉==> Officially my new favorite word. Also, for anyone (else) confused, it's been edited out and replaced with "counterpart".

@一二三: Yes, that's my point, so I guess I don't understand your confusion :(
