Hey China are you ok? What's up with these words lol?

Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

Fuck capitalism.

Pirate Sesame Street.

Why is my friend smelling オナラ on the train? Does everyone have オナラ in the morning? Is it old men or something? Lol

Hmmm wait a second does English also have the same thing with transitive and intransitive verbs but I've just never noticed because it's some native speaker / subconscious thing??? Hmmm
