Welcome to my daily 'crap' thread! I do love living in Japan, it is fun! Every now and then, there's something that annoys the crap out of me. Lets start with this kid: It could be the bad translation, but do they really say it like that? Yeah, I know.. some people have real mental problems, I get that. This kid at 10 years old, was really that obssesed with seeing things burn? I don't know... you see these kind of stories all the time: "I did it because my life sucks..." - "I did it because...." always some line of excuse that some of us deal with day in and day out but don't go around murdering people over it. (Just like that asshole in Akihabara in 2008) People I work with (Japanese folk) just assume these people have bad home lives or they were bullied, etc. etc. There's always an EXCUSE. Yeah, don't get me started on the upskirt pictures... that's a whole other ball-o-wax! Google can help you there, if you really need to satisfy that twitch! Oh - and today, I was riding the Ginza line from Ueno to Nihonbashi... around 9am or so, there was this woman, late 20's I guess.. but she was severely claustrophobic and just freaking out when people would pack on to the train. I don't blame her for having that problem, but maybe she should use an alternative form of transporation or avoid the trains during that time. I was standing next to her and while she was flipping out, people were looking at the Gaijin (me) like WTF are you doing to her???? (I wasn't doing shit!) She bolted out of the train at Nihonbashi.... I headed to the Tozai line at that point and just shook my head... lol For the number of years I've been in Japan now, I could write one hell of a book, but I'm too god damned lazy.
