    Yeah, well if you go just up the coast a bit to Kure where they made the Yamato and other ships, and they still have military, it's a completely different vibe. It's all ... well, but the technology was pretty neat, and the boys were very brave.

    Fukuoka and beyond

    Mojiko near Fukuoka is nice - lots of old buildings, a good railway museum, and a brewery selling real beer. You could also get the night ferry from Kokura to Matsuyama and see a bit of Shikoku, then another night ferry from Matsuyama to Osaka. You'd be saving big time on hotels that way.

    Arnie Gundersen...

    I'm rather concerned that my home WMD program might be discovered by some busybody with their new Geiger counter. I'll have to be ready with some of my conventional weapons if I hear anybody come beep-beep-beeping up the cliffs that surround our home.

    Sekaimon experiences?

    I heard a rumour that if you use Sekaimon enough times, you can get a voucher for a night of 'companionship' with Imoto if you're prepared to pay the going 'fuzoku' rates. Is that true?

    This is going to be a boon for my home WMD program. I'd been desperate for a solution to my targeting issues.

    Beer 2011

    Akiaji doesn't do much for me. It just seems to be a rather sweet, characterless beer, beautiful as the cans and advertising may be. And why do foreigners always call their attempts at English beer 'pale ale'? What's wrong with calling it 'ale' or 'bitter'? I had some 'pale ale' in Australia that actually tasted of real beer, once it had warmed up to drinking temperature.

  8. What a horrible gaffe for a politician to make - saying that a place where nobody can go because they would die looks, well, dead. There were all these ex-residents, brimming with hope for the future, and that bastard had to go and crush their dreams! He should have been bright and jovial and made light of the risks such as the radiation on his clothes. Oh, wait a minute, he did. The problem with these pols is that they lack the courage to say "Come here and say that" when hounded by that miserable pouty son of the Governor of Tokyo who hasn't let a single policy statement escape his lips in ten years.
  9. That bulldog can pump a skateboard better than I can. Damn! That isn't cute, it's intensely galling.

Especially for a window-cleaner. As a professional, I expect you must have been wondering how they were ever going to get those windows looking right again.

    Ponderful thoughts

    That's because I typically drive around Matsuyama and not Yokohama.

    Six pints of beer followed by Marmite on toast (and maybe some tea and pills with a thought for the morn).

    I also slept with a six year old girl.

    Actually, I may have spent the night in his arms. Or at least, lying rather heavily on one of them. It was one of those sprawl on the floor ferries, and when I got to my space, the bloke was right next to mine (or at least I think it was him. He had a blanket on instead of a skirt so it was hard to tell). Anyway, I woke up in the night to find I had rolled over significant parts of him.
