Posted in: Learn how to sleep in a toilet stall like a pro See in context

I'm thinking this would only work in Japan, where the stall doors go all the way to the ground. Stretch your motionless legs out where a passerby can see them and they are likely to break the door down to rescue you.

We had an outlet installed next to the toilet in our American house expressly to power a washlet. The bewildered builder thought we might have wanted to put a reading lamp in there.

No cure will be available any time soon. Capt. Picard will be bald in the 24th century.

He was too scared to remove his hands from the wheel to shift it into neutral, yet he claims to have reached down to pull on the accelerator pedal. Something doesn't add up.

I had a large bag of coins that I wanted to deposit, so I took them to the teller window. She asked me how much was there, and was mildly shocked that I didn't know. I didn't count it because they are the ones with the coin counting machine. The next time I had a bag of coins to deposit and the teller asked me how much was there, with a straight face I told her a ridiculously large amount. She stared at me for several seconds, probably wondering how she was going to reconcile my claim versus the actual value of the coins. She can't come out and call me a liar, can she? Eventually I let her off the hook and told her that I was just joking. She was visibly relieved.

What do you folks think Obama will do if Iran tosses a nuke at Israel? He has always indicated that talking with Mahmoud would be enough to prevent that from happening. What if it isn't?

I think we're all skirting the true issue here ... why is it still legal to own a box cutter in Japan?

Posted in: Burger King adds 'angry' burger to Japan menu See in context

Yes, the U.S. version wasn't all that angry. More like a "Mildly Annoyed Whopper".

Hmmm... they say that touching your eyes is a very common way to get the flu. Wearing these goggles in public could be as effective as wearing a mask. The tightness of ordinary goggles prevents me from doing it, but this pair just might do the trick.

My favorite part of sakura season is the surrealism of 'pink trees'. So beautiful yet so fleeting; all too soon the green leaves take over and you're left with just a tree. This image is so beautiful I just gotta bust out singing .... "Sakura, sakura, kiiro no sora wa...."

"At a Japanese restaurant". Wow. That's like in Three Amigos when Chevy Chase asked the Mexican lady of the house if they had anything besides Mexican food.

Let's be honest. Taking more time would have resulted in better composition, but by that time the girl would have been gone, resulting in a much less interesting photo. Am I right?

The letters on the blue awning would suggest that the photo isn't flipped. Maybe they are training to fight left-handed as well, in the tradition of Inigo Montoya and Dread Pirate Wesley.

I'm not offended by it, but for some reason I don't like being lumped into the same group with "unscrupulous" foreigners, such as the type that sell phony phone cards.
