It's that time of year again. As soon as the mercury starts to rise, one’s chances of falling victim to the insanity of one of those countless loons spoiling for trouble goes up a notch. Stay safe people, watch your back at all times.

Well, he was littering. Why shouldn't you be looked at with disapproval?

Bentos and Blades. The Kobe edition.

so the police found him, not too far from the crime, but it took nearly 6 hours to do that?

what was the dude doing? Kicking it on the Ferris wheel in harbor land all that time?

it’s hot, bro. Go to the beach, or the supermarket, or somewhere you can get cooled off.

The last thing anyone wants in this sweltering heat is to get stabbed.
