Yes, this is for real:

肥大 hypertrophy

謳歌 sing the praise of

耐久消費財 durable goods

下種の後知恵(げすのあとぢえ)easy to be smart after the fact

自己喪失感 loss of self or something along those lines

越権行為 abuse of authority

布教活動 literally ” missionary activities”, but, seriously, no way! Therefore, mission (ew, by the way, ew ew ew)

角回 angular gyrus

and I finally didn’t forget that  脳梁 is corpus callosum.

Also: it stopped raining. Impossible.

Surely, now that I wrote about it, it will start raining again, out of sheer spite.

Also: there was a 5-centimetre long cockroach at the campus.

Under my desk.

It twitched its feelers at me, flamboyantly. I am positive it was mocking me. If there is something we, humans, need to do, it’s to kill all the cockroaches before they have the opportunity to survive a nuclear holocaust. This will be our legacy. We will make the Universe a better place. Also, schadenfreude! Think of the schadenfreude, the sweetest of all joys!

I refuse to go back to that room, ever (seriously, 5 cm of cockroach, noooooo!)
