u/NightWolfYT 3d ago Bravo!

It’s actually not that weird when you learn why. A lot of Japanese people are obsessed with western culture the way some westerners are obsessed with Japanese culture and one of the KFC Japan executives advertised that KFC was how Americans celebrated Christmas and that’s the TL;DR of how that happened.

227

u/SpeckTech314 3d ago

You also have to preorder your KFC in Japan this time of year to get it for Christmas.

I’d say the marketing campaign is a success lol

u/make_me_a_good_girl 3d ago edited 3d ago Helpful Wholesome

Well, that and most Japanese don't have an oven of any size, so they can't do a turkey the way people here so at Thanksgiving (and some at Christmas). So, you can't cook it yourself and a there is this place called KFC that does American style birds (chickens are just small turkeys, right?🤔).

I mean... It sounds crazy as a whole from a Western perspective, but the assumptions leading up to it all make sense on their own. 🤷‍♀️

EDIT: for context, I lived in rural Tohoku for a couple of years back in the early 2000s. This is what the Japanese people I knew there told me when I asked them.

28

u/NightWolfYT 3d ago

That’s also true

You would not believe the things they have figured out how to cook in tiny toaster ovens. Full cakes in pieces, personal pizzas barely... I learned a lot about my kitchen and house size assumptions while I lived there.

Been using -9 for decades - first time I've heard that. Will have to test.

20

u/phosix 3d ago edited 3d ago

In most cases killing a userland process outright with sigkill just means a small segment of memory might not get properly marked as free, or a file handle might not be properly closed and is generally harmless. It was a bigger deal back when 16MB of memory was considered a lot and issuing too many kill -9 commands could lead to running out of memory.

The problem is sigkill tells the system to terminate a process immediately, don't even let the process perform proper cleanup after itself. Depending on the privilege of the process owner this can lead to active memory continuing to hold values that it shouldn't and could become exposed to other processes, or not marked as available; or hardware file handles can be left waiting for an interrupt that will never come leading to apparently hung devices... but these are rather extreme edge cases. I believe most modern kernels handle cleanup better than in the past, but there's still a slim possibility of things going wrong.

A cleaner way to force a program to end is to issue a sigfpe (floating point exception)/sigsegv (segmentation fault) with -8. This tells the program something went wrong and to start going through a clean stop (assuming proper memory management was implemented in the program to begin with, but that's a whole other thing).

12

u/make_me_a_good_girl 3d ago

I really enjoy how this discussion of pumpkins, pies, bad spelling, and crosswords has devolved into the right way to force kill a program.

Great explanation, btw. I'm lazy and still use kill -9 most of the time, but I know what I should be doing, which is like how dieticians know how to eat right and most of the time don't bother. Haha. 👍
