comment Are there words so bad that they aren't allowed on television?
Just a quick note, the 床 in barbershop is because in the old days barber shops had tatami floors... so I am not fully believing the explanation you have barbershop being banned. Do you by chance have a reference or link?

comment Why is マシ written using katakana?
@Sawa - i think your words are a little harsh. There is a alot of katakana words that are derived from english. That being said i think you could have made your comment a little softer and still have gotten your point across

comment When women use わ at the end of a sentence, is it different from よ?
I also here this わ alot in the Nagoya area from people who seemingly don't speak 関西弁, but then when you hear them speak to their family teh full 関西弁 comes out. I will have to agree with Matt in that i think that the わ from 関西弁 has bridged over

comment 言ったりしたら versus 言ったら
that's my point though, that the difference is where him "saying it" is all inclusive or not, that is what i perceive the difference to be. Other than that nuance, to me, there are the same.

comment 言ったりしたら versus 言ったら
ah, you split the sentence there. That makes sense. I would say that he is saying "if i talk about it or something they'll do something horrible to me" with the something being like giving away what he isn't suppose to talk about.

comment 言ったりしたら versus 言ったら
Yeah soryr about that dave, I specifically avoided translating it cause I was unclear about 言えない言ったり, so i threw up what i think he's saying.
