comment How to say, “try to __”, “have to __”
I was under the assumption that ~ようとする meant more that "I have the urge or volition to ~" and implies more of a feeling or motivation to do something "I'm feeling motivated to study" 勉強しようとする

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?
