Japan in a glance

I think that if I had to sum up in one picture why Japan rules the macrocosmos I’d do it with this one (click for full-size):

Although it probably wouldn’t be too difficult to photoshop that tree into a Katana and the orange vehicle in the background into some kind of Mech, which would make my argument that much stronger.

Every home will have a bionic cat!

Awwww. Akihabara News has the nerve to calls a thing this cute creepy?

It’s time for all you Luddites out there to embrace the future, and that future consists of cute robot pets and cute robot women. Like Actroid says, “The relationship between humans and robots is going to broaden.” Yeah, listen to Actroid.

Idol cuteness of the day

Aichan joins Sayumi in wishing us an “Usachan Piisu!” (rabbit ears peace!)

Today’s Sayumi Pic

うさちゃんピース! (“rabbit ears peace!”)

Truth be told, Sayu is not really my favorite, not even among Momusu, but she is the most sugary 🙂 My goal is to post as much Sayu as I can get away with such to induce saccharine overload in all those of you who might not be coming to the blog primarily for this purpose (roughly 100% of whatever readership I have), but not so much that you all drop dead of it right away.

Hello Kitty Vibrator

As advertised: “Ostensibly lacking a mouth, Hello Kitty cannot object to what you are doing with her.

Who wants one?

(Actually the toy reads “massage tool”. So even the sex-crazed Japanese have some taste still. All of you who got to my blog through a search engine query for the word “sex” can go now. You heard me, git!!!)

On Tetris

I love studies that demonstrate I am getting some benefit when I play a video game. In fact I go out of my way to look for them, and whenever I come across another it’s all the justification I need to go play the most violent, antisocial, expensive, time-consuming games I can get my hands on.

In this case that game is Tetris.

Tetris needs no introduction, but here’s the story of its birth retold by one of its creators who, due to living in a country where private business was prohibited and intellectual property nonexistent, and due to the weaseliness of Western entrepreneurs, did not receive in payment so much as a cornflake for his work in developing the classic. Proving that when you get right down to it, looking at capitalism and communism there is no good reason, really, to think one is any better than the other. (I hope you didn’t believe that last sentence)

And here’s Sayumi again, the J-idol I dedicated my first post on this blog to.

This time I kinda sorta have an excuse to display her picture. Sayu, it turns out, has mad Tetris skillz. When I learned where her scores usually range I said to myself, “Honey, there ain’t no way I’m letting a girl that cute be better than you (me) at a video game.”

So I went back into training. I’m pressing one hundred S-blocks a day.

By the way, did you know that mathematicians have proven that “Tetris is tough”? In case you were wondering what in the world do we have mathematicians for, there you go.

And now we arrive at the informative part of this post–There are places online where you can play Tetris for free!

Don’t worry, you can rest assured that no matter how many hours you spend, no Russian dead or living will get a cent out of you. Look on the high score list for “hydralisk”. It is even conceivable that you might top my high score, which would be okay as long as you are not a girl as cute as Sayu.

Robots Stealing Our Jobs

Hahaha! Anyone who’s ever been to any big Japanese city can attest to the fact that you can’t get from the subway to the supermarket without somebody thrusting a free pack of tissue paper into your hands (with some ad written on it). Yes, people actually get paid to do this.

But now there are robots who can perform this vital task!
