I was wondering where the Dr went! Haven't seen him around for a couple of years.

I still find it hard to believe he is the inventor of the floppy disc.

At 82, he may well bring down the average age of a couple of political parties in Japan. They'll be calling him Doctor-kun

Hey, where did he get that King Kamehameha hat? I have always thought Dr. Nakamatsu was an interesting character, and a brilliant man. Like many brilliant people, he is very eccentric, but that's what makes him appealing to me. I wish I could get a pair of his jumping shoes for my commute to work. Just checked out his homepage, and now the shoes are called Super Pyon2 and they run 17,800 yen. http://dr.nakamats.com/shop/index.html I'd vote for him, he couldn't do any worse than the people in charge now...

According to wikipedia, his goal is to live at least 144 years...

Do we know he is a tourist? Did anyone ask him? He could be a resident of Japan and just assumed to be a tourist since he is not Japanese.

a) He's aged a year b) An exotic tropical bird has escaped his cage c) It's National Nutter day d) This pic has been up entirely too long e) All of the above
