I'll definitely avoid buying this and other Koikeya products because of their total disregard for the environment.

Marines need to understand the political situation here in Japan and be very careful when drinking off base.

Posted in: The popularity of Japan vintages is astonishing. I believe prices will further go up. See in context

The first guitar I picked up in Japan was a lawsuit era Burny Les Paul, it's a nice instrument. I don't have a lot of experience with Gibsons from that era but I wouldn't say my modern Gibsons are better.

The further the 70s get in the past will only raise the prices of guitars from back then, although inflation and covid stimulus checks have pumped the price of anything collectable over the last couple of years.

Posted in: Musk threatens to walk away from Twitter deal See in context

The theory going around is that Musk never wanted to buy Twitter, he just wanted an excuse to unload a lot of Tesla stock before it crashes over the next few years without scaring shareholders.

Following this line of thought he probably knew about the high number of bots before he even started the deal and was planning to walk away from the beginning.

It makes sense to me, Tesla is overvalued and other major automobile makers are moving into the electric car market.

Expecting an invasion of Poland? Not a good sign.

I don't believe an invasion of Poland is expected, it's just a staging area for troops in case things escalate in the Ukraine.

Tokyo is way, way better (than New York)

In general I would agree, however most people in Tokyo don't hate me.

On the other hand, the House of Congress's Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law just finished a long investigation this week and in their opinion Apple's App Store does have a monopolistic hold over the smart phone app market.

As usual the laws are going to take some time to catch up with the technology but I expect some changes will happen in the future.
