    Chill brah, Are you serious? since when does anything stay on topic?
    It has everything to do with this topic anyway. It seemed that the squito's were gone, but since it's warmed up again I've been noticing them all over the damn place.
    How long does it take to show symptoms of Malaria anyway?
  2. Oh man, that must be like a ?31? I would say your chances are very slim to none. Even more rare would be to find those womens boots, but I've never rented gear in Japan so... But I will say that it took me quite awhile to even find a pair of 29's that I was interested in. It seems that many shoe/boot companys don't import sizes larger than a 29. When I bought new hiking boots I went to all the local shops (I live 30min. from Shinjuku) and they were like "yeah right" They said the companys I were interested in didn't even import over a 28.5. I'd def. call ahead and find out.

  3. After reading again you just thought the gun bit was tasteless. Well that's America, we gots a thing called the constitution saying damn near everyone has the right to bare arms, or is that bear arms? Shit I don't know Anyways alot of people mess around with guns it's pretty common. I don't know anyone who doesn't have a few guns. Maybe it is geared towards American people, as you mention. I don't think many Americans know that other types of people are so against them.


    As far as guns in the backcountry, that's really common. Every year there are people that get arrested even while hiking the AT!!! It's totally legal to have it, just not in National Parks. As far as skiiers holding, I don't know about that, but I was just reading an article at the bookstore that was in Skiing mag. I believe. That article talked about a guy snowboarding at Keystone, ducked a rope and got lost. When patrol finally found him 3 days later they found him only 200 M or so off piste and dude had a gun!!! Now that's kinda shocking.

  4. I'm with AK/Kuma as well. I thought that shit was funny. Especially the part with him tugging on the tree goin back and forth at like 40MPH. nothing to get all bent outta shape about, so what!!


    I don't know if it's really "normal" behavior or not but...


    As a young hoodlum I used to do shit like that all the time. I remember skipping High school once to go ride at the local hill. One of our crew broke his wrist so someone had the idea to go make some drano bombs at one of our houses, after that got boring we went to this other dudes house and made a pipe bomb using black powder from his Dads Muzzeloader. Whipped that shit up and went behind the garage and stuck it in some cinder blocks. We were hoping it would blow the cinder block apart but shiiiiit, that thing blew the whole side of the garage off and part of the garage collapsed on his Dads 67' Mustang. Sucked, his Dad wouldn't ever let us party over there anymore.

  5. Funny you should post this, very frustrating!!! I was just having a conversation/debate with one of my students about whale/shark hunting. I just couldn't get through his thick skull the important role whales/sharks play in our eco system. He had no idea that sharks were caught, fins cut off, then thrown back. Ofcourse he didn't care either.


    On the other hand, he's the only student that shows up with a goggle tan all winter long though.

  6. Haven't seen Push/Pull yet, I was gonna order it from the website to get that hoodie for only $1o or $15 more than the Japan price. Teaser looks sick though.

  8. Went to that event in Ikebukuro tonight.

    I was looking for a pair of boots I knew they wouldn't have so... Anyway the largest boots I saw that were even semi good were size 5-6.5 Lange FR ??? they were 20,000. Might have been interested in any twin tips, all they had were last seasons AR3s for 25,000 and a bunch of carvers. Lots of steezy gear for up to 80% off which seems like states prices- Alphanumeric, Volcom,and Sessions were represented. Bunch of goggles that were marked down to about states prices. I snagged the only steal I could find, A pair of TNF Helicon pants for 2,000 yen!!!! Gonna hit Makuhari on Sun. as recommended

    i've often thought about it, but my laziness always wins out and i trust in the goodness of my fellow man not to steal stuff from my house. but maybe that's far too naive.
    Me too, Whenever I move into a new place I always plan on changing the locks but...
    That's it!! This weekend I'm on that shit.

    It's pretty wierd, when I was in the states I never locked my doors at all even though there's so many criminals out roaming. I never did here either, but my wife doesn't even run out to get the mail without locking the doors and always yells at me for leaving the door unlocked. Now I pretty much always lock the door (unless she's not home and I'll be back before her). Damn I must be getting whipped. sadglass.gif
  10. Yup, in the states either.


    When I was back at home I would often come home and there would be some random sitting on the sofa swillin beers saying I'm a friend of a friend of... but it was always cool cause they knew they belonged. But, there's no way some landlord would just walk into someones house all inocent whistling "whistle while you work" or something like everythings cool, that shit don't fly.


    I've never even thought about that. Now I'm wondering if anyones ever came in my Apt. while I wasn't there.


    Charlotte, Did they leave a notice that they were there ? or did you just find out?
