It was worth it...though it was expensive and I could not import another from America. It's a ice chomping beast so...meh...was worth it in spades actually

It was the coolest but the locals didn't even reacted to it.

 

They have automated warning systems that will auto-stop trains when sensors around the country pick up a sufficiently major quake. Derailments are very rare. Pretty much the only derailments are caused by idiots trying to cross the tracks even after the lights have been flashing for long enough for the gates to close safely, plus a couple of freak accidents over the years.

I saw this one Sunday, Tokyo Rockabilly, I can't remember if it was at Yoyogi or Harajuku.

They were dancing in the street. Reminded me of the movie 'The Lords Of Flatbush'.

That's a dwindling breed. Most are over their 40's or more. A lot of their kids have drifted into Mexican M8fia/ Hip Hop Gangstar type in appearance. I see these dudes at some car shows. They do the typical Japanese thing and take it back in time 100% the slang the moves. Like being at a show except you don't have to pay:D

This was back in very late '90s, about 15 to 16 years back, they looked like mid to late 20s back then, you're right, they're pushing 40s now. Just a fad back then.

Completely jealous of how they just do their thing. It would take at least two pints of beer before I get it my head to bust a(ny) move.

Good on the both of you! That wallet though. What was he troubled with?

I think some of them are on a few brews...and some just don't give a ****:D

 

The cat was an outside cat that I fed and he started getting lethargic and turned out he had puss in both his lungs from an infection and was pretty much 70% a goner. The Dr said I'd have to pay for the op no matter the result and of course I'm rolling the dice. If I didn't try that would keep me up at nights. Money well spent...and he lived...to join my other cats and destroy my furniture:p

Money well spent. It's a pet household's balance: they damage stuff which keeps you from buying new goods which in turn can be spent on vet's bills. Given the joy they bring, good deal I say.

A lot of them are probably from the '90s bust -- when many guys couldn't get lifetime employment at a company after university, which they would do normally.

This guy has 1 friend with a body shop. Another friend who's a mechanic. And so on. They all combine to make one great car for the club and everybody else has great cars...maybe not gonna get mirrors under it at a show though.

 

I wonder if they would just buy one if they could or if they love this or learned to love it because it's the only way?

The economic woes that lasted for so long...did they really boost the D.I.Y crowd by necessity? I always wonder that. Your comment reminded me of that thought.

 

If it were 1988 would he throw a wad of cash at this and just buy it....like Rockefeller center or the countless homes on the beaches in Hawaii that were bought during the bubble?
