    Important news of the day thread

    A British backpacker troubled by weeks of nosebleeds found a three-inch long leech had been living up her nose for more than a month. Daniela Liverani believed the persistent nosebleeds she suffered while travelling around south-east Asia were down to a burst blood vessel from a motorbike crash. Days after returning to her Edinburgh home, however, she spotted an object in one nostril that she first dismissed as congealed blood. The 24-year-old graduate was rushed to A&E at Edinburgh's Royal Infirmary after realising she had an animal up her nose. Miss Liverani, originally from Glasgow, told the Sunday Mail: "Two weeks before I came home from Asia, I started having nosebleeds but I'd fallen off a motorbike so thought I'd burst a blood vessel.

  10. Yeah. The way Docomo labels it is iPhone Docomo Smartphones Obviously, that doesn't escape the fact that the iPhone is a smartphone. It's just the dominant one and apple gave probably demanded such treatment.
  11. But thanks to this thread I went in at lunchtime and found out that I could save 1500 yen a month by downgrading my data pack. Turns out over the last 6 months I have never used over 2GB, and so I downgraded to that amount. Cheers!

    Autumn colors places

    When is the best time for around Chuzenjiko. I presume colorful there earlier than down in the temple area of Nikko. Would love to go there in full autumn mode.

    Important news of the day thread

    The world's most pierced man, Rolf Buchholz, has been denied entry into Dubai after he was due to make an appearance at a hotel nightclub. The 53-year-old German has 453 piercings on his body and face, as well as two horn implants on his forehead. Mr Buchholz told the BBC that airport staff said they feared he may be practising "black magic". The computer expert was recognised by the Guinness Book of Records in 2012 as the world's most pierced man. Mr Buchholz told the Associated Press news agency that he was initially allowed through immigration, but was later stopped prior to customs and put on a flight to Istanbul. As a result, his scheduled appearance at the Cirque le Soir nightclub in Dubai's Fairmont Hotel on Friday was cancelled. The club said in a statement on Sunday that it had done its best to get Mr Buchholz into the country but their efforts were unsuccessful. Posting on Twitter after the incident, Mr Buchholz vowed never to return to Dubai again. He said his luggage was still lost in Dubai. Police and officials in Dubai have yet to comment on the incident.
