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
