Seiretei. Woohoo! I'm a shinigami!
I figure Language would go with Literature. My friend and I are stuck on a... disagreement. My friend says that Domo means Thank you in Japanese and I say that Arigato means Thank you in Japanese. Every website I visit tells me I'm right and vice versa for her. Which one of us is right? Can someone please help?

Arigato and Domo are both correct.
Look, there are a lot of ways to say one word in Japanese (arigato, domo (as in thank you), domo (as in saying a quick hello), mou (shit, too, geez), etc.). Stick to Japanese lessons to have a better arguement over that crap.

Oh for heavens sake . . .

Both are used to say thank you in Japan.

Domo is usually used as a quick little thank you to something like maybe holding a door open or something. Where as Arigatou has a stronger connotation, and is definately used in more formal contexts than Domo. Heck, even the phrase Domo Arigatou is used, which is similar to Arigatou Gozaimasu (thank you very much).
