    you only go to the casino with the mindset that you are going to the arcade and spending X amount of dollars for Y amount of recreation
    NEVER go there with the intent of making money.

    Italki is a good site once you are at an intermediate level and want to practice openly with another native speaker.
    just don't be "that" guy that only talks about anime, looking at all the English speakers looking for Japanese speaking partners and their avatars I can only guess at the levels of Weaboo that goes on there. 
     
    as far as beginner.... ugh /shrug. start with Hiragana then Katakana 
    and as far as Kanji I hear good things about this paid app called Wanikani there is also a free program that you'd have to set up for yourself as its not that plug and play but Anki is pretty decent. 
    myself, I'm old school I grabbed my cousin's old Kanji textbook and grabbed several hundred index cards and made my own flash cards. starting at Japanese level grade 1 -4. I figure by the time I get to grade 5 kanji I should have enough to read native material and get my practice from there. I'm currently at grade 3 Kanji and I still need a lot of "furigana" to help me out. 
    there is also a Chrome addon called rikaikun that adds furigana/translations to kanji on websites. 

    sorry I'm not so helpful for the beginner I'm only an intermediate/advanced speaker. 

    PS I'm also gearing up to take on the JLPT N2/N3 tests you can also pick up some of those textbooks from Amazon just do a search for nihongo so-matome a beginner would be N5 and advanced is N1 
     
    good luck

    Do I want to die? No. However, that is the ultimate fate. I could die in 30 seconds, 2 days, or maybe next year. Do you accept the small chance you could be wrong and be judged by Allah? Or Zeus? Perhaps Satan himself? Maybe he's the true God. You have just as much of a chance of going to some sort of judgement as me, other atheists, and people who believe in other religions. And for the record, why should we go to hell? Because we don't believe in a deity that hasn't given sufficient evidence for their existence? Why doesn't he show himself to us if he's real? Really, this goes for any deity.

    (atheist incoming...) Christianity, and all fundamental religions for that matter, scares the shit out of me also; there are some really messed up things in the holy books. Furthermore, Satanism has just as much empirical evidence as Christianity so I don't know why you're fixating on this religion opposed the other tens of thousands out there

    ever since I've dropped massive pounds I've been on a fitness/health kick and have been really open to the Vegan propaganda. although I've not and don't plan to cut out meat entirely I have highly cut down my use of it adopting a John Mcdougall's Starch Solution like diet cooking in the traditional Japanese style of lots of veg and a bit of meat to flavor the dish.
     
    I think insects would take on before that test tube meat would ever take on in the world and yes there are some farms in the states growing insects for human consumption

    to supplement the recipe. you really need to beat the shit out of that dough when you knead it to give the noodles the proper mouthfeel
     
    if you can't find the alkali... lye water I think you can make a replacement by cooking baking soda or something either way the recipe yielded noodles reminicient of what I had in Japan.
    as for broth.... thats another story I think I have a handle on it I'm waiting for the cold winter months so I don't dump un-necessary heat into my house

    if I were in the market for a headphone case I would buy a metal lunchbox with a picture that appeals to me (starwars) and cut foam to fit. I'd enjoy that over a generic headphone case.
