  1. Classic thread GN i especially know where you are coming from with yours just last night a lady friend asked me about Christchurch - Like `Do people have jobs there ?` I was perplexed but her image was ust that it was like a massive retirement home with a couple of golf clubs to keep residents occupied- The preconceptions are unreal sometimes you wonder if they are just having you on - By far the daftest though was a dumbass canadian chick at a Bar in Akasaka- She asked my friend what he did and he said he was a `Headhunter` to which she replied `Oh my God` gasping with hand over her

  6. Back on topic fellas Heres what you do: Go to the find skype users function then search for people that are in `skypeme mode` - then set the location to Tokyo, Japan -(or define otherwise) These are people that WANT to chat - so send a message introduce yourself politely- mainly the Japanese people using sjype I would go out on a limb and say they can speak/ understand the queens to some extent. Chance your arm some would be keen to help I`m certain - its educational- fun for both parties. So Yes you can utilise it to learn Nihongo- why wouldn`t you either ?

I also find it offensive to sit next to a heavy smoker with that aged stink of smoke in thier clothes and hair and on their breath....but I still find the fresh waft of smoke tempting, even though I know it is stinky and toxic. That is addiction for ya. I consider myself like an alcoholic with cigarettes. I don't par
  16. It is kinda funny I agree Ski -the thing about smoking for those who have never indulged is it is SO hard to stop - it`s the hardest thing in the world - people go on an on about smokers having no will power etc - v easy to get hooked I think I`ll be in for a shock when I leave Japan with the attitudes towards it elsewhere - The industry though however you feel is here to stay though I think in Japan the Government is one of if not the biggest owner of JT.
  17. gotta love the laws in japan concerning smoking etiquette - was with a friend recently at a table outside a prime rib restaurant where we were ordered or asked to `please come inside Gentlemen if you wish to smoke ` !
