Jeez, I'd hate to be the poor sucker that had to open that package, just think if had been a family business and the kids opened it, they'd be tramatuized (I can't spell ><) for life. Well at least it wasn't anything illegal...

Posted in: In Japan, you are what your blood type is See in context

Jeez, one mention of nazis and everybody goes balistic, Frankly I have no clue what my blood type is but according to this article I could have any blood type, well maybe not type A, I'm cheerful (or at least I think I am) I'm deffinitely eccentric and selfish, I'm curious, not so much generous but as stubborn as an ox when I want to be, and I like to think I'm arty, mysterious, and unpredictable. Heh, I'm gonna laugh so hard if it turns out I'm type A.

Frankly I think it's just fine for the Japanese to have this type of thing, at least they're judging you by what's on your inside instead of what's on the outside like some people.

Also according to wikipedia (not the best source but I still rely on it) the swastika was used all over the world before the nazis particularily in India.

Posted in: Cell phone novels come of age See in context

Heh, so what about sports manga then?

Anyways, does anybody know if this happens in any other country, this is the first time I've heard of a cell phone novel and frankly it surprises me, unless I'm mistaken this could be one of the genuinely Japanese things.

Posted in: Okamoto's A-bomb mural See in context

Frankly I like it, you know just looking at it I would never have guessed it was about the Atomic Bombing, hey is it just me or does the skeleton in the center also kinda look like a dragon head? With the pelvis being the snout and the gaps between the chest bones looking like eyes. . .

Posted in: What do you make of all the publicity over the recent arrests of Japanese university students for smoking pot? See in context

I can't believe some of the posters on here, one look at the "pot-heads" as triumvere puts it should be enough of a reason to have it be illegal, as for it being a gateway drug it's a commonly known fact that you build up a resistance to the effects of the drug, aka it takes more of the drug to get the same effect, thus when people try pot to begin with and it gets the point where no matter how much they smoke, a point where their most likely addicted to it, they can't get high then logically they'll go onto stronger stuff.

On a side note, I felt I should mention that just like you build up a resistance to drugs you can build up a resistance to diseases. . .

Posted in: Tokyo police, rail authorities hope to scare Halloween pranksters See in context

Hmmm. . . everytime I click the show all link the internet closes, frankly I blame the computer I'm on but. . .

Anyways Halloween is my favorite holiday EV-ER, nothing like getting away with stuff you couldn't do any other day and getting away with it, though of course everything needs limits. . .

Posted in: Pachinko academy draws in students See in context

Hmmmm. . . it all seems like harmless fun to me, a little bit of excitement in an otherwise drab and boring life, heh, plus when you think of Pachinko you can't really see somebody ruining their life on it, or at least that's what I think, personally I don't really see the appeal of it. . .
