  1. the character labelled marijauna looks like the japanese for potato: 芋. i dont know if it is the same in chinese.

  2. Oh wow. I can't believe they even got the character for "beauty" wrong! WTF? I can hardly read any Chinese at all, but I can tell you one thing: the character for "beauty" is not what they have written, and apparently it isn't that in Japanese either.

  3. Well, one would expect to see 美 for beautiful, however according to my kanji dictionary 妍 does mean beautiful too. It carries the same Japanese pronunciation as 美, but a different Chinese one. Personally, I've never seen it written. Maybe it is more common in Chinese?
