High upon one of Japan’s most venerated mountains sits one of Japan’s most awe-inspired castles, Atami-Jo. Slightly below that in terms of altitude, but soaring above it in terms of culture and adoration sits Hihokan, an “adult museum” for inquiring minds interested in the history of sex in Japan.Read More
They’re not very realistic.
Even the one about not killing. I’ll assume that God only means not killing humans (surely animals don’t count as He enjoys sacrifices of them in His honor), but when you factor in militaries which we all support (through our representatives, taxes, and Veterans Days), then we all support killing, right? This makes it impossible to be a good patriot and a good Christian/Jew.Read More

With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics rapidly approaching, a major issue that the capital city has been grappling with is the lack of bicycle lanes.
Bicycle sharing services have grown in popularity around the globe as people find cycling in cities to be convenient and good for their health. Provided they’re not killed by a motor vehicle.Read More
The Chuo Shinkansen is a magnetic levitation (maglev) train line that will eventually run from Tokyo to Osaka.
The cutting edge maglev technology sounds pretty cool, right? Plus, while taking the current shinkansen from Tokyo to Osaka will take you at least 2 hours and 30 minutes, the maglev will cut that down to a breezy 1 hour and 7 minutes. Awesome, right?
Maybe not so awesome when you consider that the final leg to Osaka won’t be openRead More
I purchased a soap holder off Amazon the other day. It shipped from China and I have to say I was taken aback by the installation instructions. It started off just fine but before long the brash tone had me confused, belittled, and borderline suicidal.
I had no problem at all with the first section which introduced a few parts and instructed me to clean and dry the surface that I would be attaching the soap holder to. Fair enough.Read More
I got hacked!
You will not believe the pain and torment that I went through.
It was so horrible that I feel I must, as a public service announcement, share it with the world.
The best way I can figure to do so is with a line by line post. A line from the emailRead More
Every time I hear a debate concerning global warming, I hear that 97% of scientists agree that climate change is real and man-made.
The next question we should all be asking is not, “How do we solve global warming?” The next question we need an answer to is, “What the fuck is wrong with those 3% of scientists who don’t think global warming is real and man-made?”
First of all, who are these fuckers? Where did they study? What are their credentials?Read More
1) Stop spitting on my Kindle when reading shitty books. I’ve got to learn that neither my rage nor my loogies reach the author. In fact, I may only be hurting myself.
2) Start spitting on people walking around while staring at their smartphones.
3) Be more presidential. By which I of course mean take credit for anything and everything good in the world andRead More
I was volunteering at the local language center today trying to land a doe-eyed co-ed when one of the older Japanese volunteers asked me a question.
“Do you know [Margargo]?”
I had no idea what word the super nice old guy was trying to say, but I was pretty sure it wasn’t Margargo.Read More

When a man and a woman love each other very much, they choose to express that love in many ways. One of them in particular is near and dear to my heart.
In a heated demonstration of sensual love, the buck naked man will bury his face into the equally naked woman’s vagina, pleasuring her orally, while she simultaneously goes to town on his impassioned penis.Read More
For our second argument, let’s have a look at a three hypothetical young male adults.
Let’s begin with Mr. A, an alt-right “person” from Virginia.
Next, we have Mr. B, a forward-thinking hunk of a man with eyes as blue as the planet Neptune from New York.
Mr. A and Mr. B hate each other. Actually, Mr. A and Mr. B have never met, but if theyRead More
I can’t believe Crazy Rich Asians is bathing in as much praise as it is. Hackneyed is too kind a word for this dried-up snoozefest pandering to Asians and holier-than-thou non-Asians.
If you liked this movie you have no business watching movies. Someday, you’ll learn to look beyond race and be embarrassed at the crap you liked when you were trying so hard to be a so-called good human being.Read More
The New York Times
In a swearing-in ceremony before hundreds of thousands of rabid supporters, John Box declared himself President of the World.
Holding in his right hand a copy of Rubbing Bacon On It by David Hasselhoff as if it were the Bible, Global Presidente Box proclaimed that he was answering to a “higher calling to assume the office of the People’s President of the Entire Fucking World.”Read More
If you’ve been studying Japanese long enough to attempt a conversation with a Japanese person, you’re probably familiar with the concept of aizuchi, which is described as ‘interjections during a conversation that indicate the listener is paying attention and/or understanding the speaker.’
Which is to say, grunts to let you know they’re listening.
I’ve actually seen this taught in elementary school textbooks as a form of goodRead More
