So in case y'all don't know, I'm currently in an intensive Japanese program right now.  I've been doing Japanese 14 hours a day for the past three weeks and three days.  And sometimes, your brain just gets confused. 

Tonight at dinner, my teacher asked what my favorite show was, and I answered "Deadliest Catch" as it is.  My TA (from Tokyo), didn't know what it was, and so I told her.  She wanted to know why anyone would do that sort of job, to which case one of my classmates (who's from Alaska), answered "Its great money."  She was surprised, and I, in explanation, came out with this sentence. 

"Ni shuukan ni hataraitara, ichiman kara goman gurai doru ni kingyou ni morateimashita."

Which, roughly translated for those of you who don't speak Japanese, means "If they work for two weeks, they recieve $10,000-$50,000 goldfish."

I thought my teachers were going to die laughing.  That's actually better than the time I informed my teacher I was going to marry my wristwatch. 

Hope this was good for a laugh.

I know of no other means to earn so many goldfish so quickly.

But it isn't necessarily a LOT of goldfish.  It could just be one really expensive one.  I suppose it depends on how good the season was?
