comment Need to know how to type specific kanji found in image
@Stan Not exactly. Kanji were originally Chinese characters borrowed into Japanese, but were later mutated to adapt to their own writing style. New characters were invented in the process as well. So drawing equivalence between the Hanzi and Kanji is not recommended. (By the way, I was commenting on the OP's use of the word, not your comment, hence the lack of @).

comment Is '明天你都六点起床不起床?' a correct question?
The English question itself sounds very awkward. If you want to signal future intention, then use the present continuous tense: Are you planning/going to wake up at six tomorrow?, to which the answer would be YES. However, if you asked me: will you....? My answer would be I DON'T KNOW.

If anything, it's 'hanzi', not 'kanji'.

comment Differentiate 不错 and 没错 in these situations
@Stan Good point. I expanded it. Seriously, how difficult is it to write a few extra letters. I actually had no idea what SB meant (I've seen it written in lowercase, but never uppercase).

@StumpyJoePete Here is an interesting web snippet about how it's used in different countries based on user feedback :). 365project.org/eleanor/365/2011-02-15

comment What does 亮黄灯了 mean?
@StumpyJoePete Yellow light is gaining ground here. Still many here still go with the original (I presume?) orange colour. In fact, rarer still, some actually call it amber light. It's good to know however. Thanks.

comment What does 亮黄灯了 mean?
Yes... it's normally called 'orange' in English. Some people do say yellow, but I don't hear that often. Don't get caught up on stuff like this. It's like some people call turquoise a shade of blue, while others call it a shade of green. People have different perceptions of what a colour looks like. I can carry on with this psychology topic, but I think I've made myself clear.

comment What does 亮黄灯了 mean?
Are you able to give more context? From just this, all I can deduce is it refers to the orange light (黄灯) in a set of traffic lights. Essentially when the orange light lights up, then it's time to slow down and stop. In this case, it refers to your body switching to the "orange light", which is a sign for you to slow down and take a break from excessive exercising.

comment Is there a Chinese equivalent of the German “Mut zur Lücke”?
Or you could've just said 'to gamble' ;). It's about venturing into the unknown, which is exactly what 'to gamble' means.
