Valentine's day


I am not dead, just very busy. Yamasa's speech contest is held in two weeks and today, we had the "qualifying round", therefore I spent a couple hours preparing specifically for that.

Yesterday was Valentine's day, and the rules are a little different in Japan so let me explain:

Rule 1: one offers chocolates

Rule 2: women give, men receive

Rule 3: women give not only to their boyfriend, but also to their friends, colleagues etc.

As a man it's pretty cool, you just receive chocolates from several people. However, men have to return gifts on the White day (March 14th).

You must have noticed that I'm being spammed lately, I need to get rid of that. I am going to implement a small filter based on regular expressions, if anyone has a better idea please let me know.
