A place to be myself and for more than a few laughs.
what is the MAGIC
it’s called mochi!
it’s like ice cream in a soft skin!
also, it’s fucking amazing!
This is もちアイス (mochiaisu) and the “soft skin” is pounded rice cake. The white stuff you see on the outside is powdered sugar so they won’t get sticky. It’s very delicious on a hot day and you can get these at the right self-serve frozen yogurt joints. Unfortunately North America sells one mochiaisu for a dollar and some cents whereas in Japan you can get these by the boxful in any supermarket.
You can get these in a box at trader joes

at what point in history do you think americans stopped having british accents
Actually, Americans still have the original British accent. We kept it over time and Britain didn’t. What we currently coin as a British accent developed in England during the 19th century among the upper class as a symbol of status. Historians often claim that Shakespeare sounds better in an American accent.
I wondered if this was true, and it seems that the answer is broadly yes, once you tweak the terminology.
A big difference between Received Pronunciation (BBC English) and General American is the pronunciation of the letter R (for example: butter vs buttuh). Non-rhotic accents (buttuh) developed in the UK in the 1800s as a way to signify status. So the original colonists would have used rhotic accents (butter), making them sound more like present-day Americans, at least when it comes to pronouncing Rs. [Sources: Mental floss, livescience].
As for the Shakespeare point, the British Library has tried to recreate Shakespearean English as it would have sounded in 1600, so you can decide for yourself if it sounds more like RP or GenAm. (I think it sounds sort of Irish.) [Sources: NPR, Telegraph].
