They get a new supply around 10:30am.....
This wins the internet for today
My daughter send me this on - I think it qualifies for this thread:
She called it "really weird" - spagettisandwich.
I love this.
Panya-sans are a creative bunch of people .
Only in Japan
Any of the Royce chocolate outlets should sell these in Australia (Marion shopping center in Adelaide). Hmm might have to go for a drive.
$25 for a pack though
An email I got today:
Sorry for incontinence.
Currently there is no data for Oct.
Need more time to prepare.
(Should have been inconvenience, but this stuff gives me the sh*ts )
What's funny as well, the newscaster guy thinks that there's nothing to build in Japan!!!
They are ALWAYS building stuff here in Japan
Need to get some Japanese workers onto the Brown Mountain and Alpine Way!
In Japan you regularly see workers busy repairing roads late at night - not something you see much of here.
it's very common in inner Sydney
Yeah, I regularly see lots of buildings being built.... I mean a lot, and some really big ones.
Cambridge Street not far from the hospital in Subiaco WA was having some road works done last year - replacement of pipes (maybe NBN as well, who knows) but they stuffed that Street up for more than 6 months. Some of the businesses went out of business. It's not the first time I've seen/heard of such inefficiency and devastating business outcomes but because I was going there every 2-3 weeks for treatments I saw it first hand.
At the time I said "this rubbish would never happen in Japan". Point proven.
With the triple time and a half penalty rates here it would be cheaper to lay roads of gold during the day
So far not much is reportet about the subway construction damage further down. Must be a mess down there? Open shield?
Just look at that hole which came about from nth west link. Took a month and was half the size and I bet cost 10 times more.
I'm going to this .....
Oh that's just nuts. A bunch of naked people on rides?
Ok just saw: tunnel and shaft are flooded - so lots of pumping and mud digging - hope the concrete pumping closed the hole(s) of the tunnel.
Yeah the horsey merrygoround got me really excited too
Water looks yellow-ish hmmm!!!
But why am I not surprised!!
So it was an unseasonable 19 degrees in Tokyo yesterday, and yet many people were still wear the full down jackets and scarves.....
It proves once again, that many Japanese people dress by season and not temperature!!!!
better be careful sandy, fashion police are gonna come and deport you!
"In addition to keys and eyeglasses and other commonly lost objects, millions of dollars worth of cash reaches the Tokyo police's lost and found department every year."
In fact, last year people handed over a record 3.67 billion yen (S$45.2 million) in lost cash, and about three-quarters of that money ended up back with its rightful owners, according to the Metropolitan Police Department. It is a phenomenon that reflects the Japanese people's devotion both to cash and to returning lost property.
"So it's not rare to see kids bringing a 10-yen coin to a police office." "
a small one - i keep having to remind myself that the end of the isles in japanese supermarket contain items. often important ones.
back home the end of the isles are duplicate stock, whatever is being promoted for example. so ive learned to completely ignore the end and walk past it.
i dunno how this thread came to be resurrected, I imagine it had something to do with the breakdown, but it reminded me of a recent post, that has probably now been lost, along the lines of
"If I were a plastic surgeon, I would include a squeaky toy with every breast implant!"

I'm sure we have chocolates shaped as the Sydney Opera House but these made me smile: 1/180,000 scale Fujisan Miniature Crunch Chocolates. A gift from a Japanese friend.
Glad you put the description as I thought it was something else
You blokes are horrible. Get your minds out of the toilet (literally). All good.
Put the description above the pic to save their thoughts going immediately to the toilet. And I must admit I did wonder what I was looking!
Japan's lawmakers have passed a controversial bill allowing authorities to target terror conspiracies.
There are 277 new laws, including:
Conducting sit-ins to protest against the construction of apartment buildings
Using forged stamps
Competing in a motor boat race without a licence
Mushroom picking in conservation forests
Avoiding paying consumption tax
You have to laugh.
Otherwise you'd cry.
At least now they have got rid of the stupid guiding licence test requirement. That test was insane!
Good move!!! When I used to run shopping tours, I got around that by not providing any interpreting, as the wording says "interpreter guide".
The complaints are that the quality of the guides will decline, but seriously, I looked at some of the shopping tour packages, and they were crap: Drive in a tour bus, through Ginza, Akihabara, etc.... what use is that? I reckon I know how to find stuff better than any of those tour guides. And I never, ever considered kickbacks, because that's not focused on the customer.
And those Chinese tours... every weekend, you see tour buses parked outside LAOX Akihabara. LAOX used to be good in the old days, but now caters for Chinese tourists with too much cash, on overpriced goods.
They dont know how fortunate they are to not have to worry about terror attacks like other places around the world.
The odds are I'm far more likely to be hit by a truck, get eaten by a shark, hit a tree skiing or choke on my own vomit than be killed by a terrorist. Especially 3 and 4. So I don't let it worry me too much.
The occasional gassing in subway trains doesn't count.
Was not so long ago that i remember that very situation occurring on the gold coast only it was JTB bring Japanese tourists into over priced shops/golf courses and hotels and yes they did receive their gratuities.
Its funny how things repeat, but differently.
