Let us enter numbers

Nah. I think that is a solid UK thing.

Off the top of my head, I would say “you’re blowing things out of proportion” . My mom also says, “tempest in a teapot” but I hear less of that.

“Storm in een glas water” in Dutch. Interesting that several different languages have nearly the same expression.


Letting us enter digits has the problem of counting wrong answers as right

But maybe… that is problem even with letter numbers :open_mouth:

So why not


I just google’d the Portuguese version and searched for something similar in English :man_shrugging:

Haha, yes, I think it comes up as a problem with the days of the week and other words like that as well.

For what it’s worth, I like to use the Close But No Cigar script to make sure I get those right. It requires you to enter the correct answer before you’re allowed to continue.

I don’t know much about hacking so I haven’t injected any of the cheat codes

Huh. It never occurred to me before to wonder why we have both of those. I think for me ‘mountain/molehill’ has more of a connotation of blowing up a small problem to make it seem really huge, whereas ‘storm/teacup’ is more like getting angry over something small.


In the review section just enter :arrow_up::arrow_up::arrow_down::arrow_down::arrow_left::arrow_right::arrow_left::arrow_right::b::a:


So I did get it right :star_struck:

Apparently, there’s a Japanese version too: コップの中の嵐

Seriously, I’m starting a conspiracy theory about how the Portuguese had a fetish with cups and then decided to give tea to the British and the word コップ to the Japanese.

Also a slightly different meaning but a nice idiom is “to choose a small hill to die on”, as in to expend a lot of effort or anger on something trivial.

Oooh. I also hear, "Is this the hill you want to die on?’

sorry I keep threadjacking

Oh, I’ve never actually heard that properly! I’ve heard people talking about hills to die on, but I never realised it was in reference to this idiom. edit: yes, same, gojarappe!

I associate it strongly with AskAManager and laughing at some of the absurd hills people choose to die on at work :grin:

ok people, back to the numbers!

From the topic I originally thought this thread was about everyone just writes a random number, like



Might I suggest a similar alternative

Interesting, I’ve got the same combination on my luggage!


You’re not safe anymore. I see it all.


Installing scripts doesn’t involve any hacking or coding at all. They are a great way to improve your WaniKani experience and there’s tons of stuff you might like! I wouldn’t call scripts cheating at all. Check out the API And Third-Party Apps section. :slight_smile:
