A man died because someone pumped compressed air up his anus.

If only he could really…

It is with guilty pleasure I learned that the only Japanese who has ever tried to kill me*, Shoko Asahara, has been hanged.

 
(If only he could really fly.)
"Fake news"!
The Master could not be hanged…The great lightened Sonshi could FLY!!

*Back in the late 1980s, Shoko Asahara‘s doomsday cult crazies used to dance/sing/recruit at my train station…and then they killed 13 people with a Sarin poison gas attack on the same Tokyo subway I used to take to work.
I’m not a big fan of the death penalty, but good riddance.

‘OH MY GOD! They killed ASIMO!’

killed-asimo-500x

A bot by any other name
Is this the end of the line for Asimo, Japan’s famed robot?
Agence France-Presse | July 01, 2018
Japan’s public broadcaster NHK reported that the Japanese carmaker had terminated Asimo and dissolved the team making one of the world’s most famous humanoid robots.
More…Asimo-gives-up

 
Of course Honda had to kill ASIMO. He didn’t do anything (except waste mountains of money of Honda).

As I was previously quoted complaining in the press:

Decades of creating fantasy robots, like Asimo, Aibo, Roborior et al, has bankrupted the research and development departments of Japan while not resulting in any viable products. —The Independent (2010-07-17)

 

Ok, ok, ASIMO did allow Honda get their investment back in RoboButtsecks (3Yen | 2007-12-21)asimo robot buttsecks

Goofy umbrellas for Japan’s rainy season

With all the umbrellas fun in yesterday’s post, Rain

Here’s an umbrella is designed to be rolled alongside you, like a suitcase, which provides a fun alternative to the ordinary method, which involves carrying the annoying thing around with you

Rain

Here in Tokyo we’re in the peak of Japan’s rainy season. Japanese folks always ask me* where’s my umbrella and answer with the haiku of the poet Santoka Taneda (Wiki):

降るままぬれるままで歩く
furu mama nureru mama de aruku
Japanese block print by Hasui Kawase(image: Hasui Kawase)

”kyō mo nurete shiranai michi o yuku”
today again, soaking wet, / I walk on an unknown road
 


 

*I don’t and can’t use an umbrella since I walk on crutches, so asking me is, “duh.”

The happy “Two-Down” vending machine that you often see on Tokyo’s street is Wex Corp’s private brand vending machine…with reasonable pricing. We are aggressively offering a “two-down” vending machine that finds new demand and receives wide support.

 
drink-sizes-japanThe-rest-of-the-story…
When I first came to Japan in 1984, the fixed price of drink was 110 yen ($1 USD) for a measly 190 ml (6.4 oz) can. In 1986, the standard-throughout-Japan price went up to 120 yen but over the next few years the normal 350 ml (12 oz) can was introduced. To pay 120 yen, you must use three coins: one 100 yen and two 10 yen coins.120yen-in-coin

The reason that these 100 yen vending machines are called TWO DOWN is that they only need one 100 yen coin for a drink, which is two coins “down” from the normally required three. The happy Wex-Man character carries a big mallet to “Hammer Down/ハンマーダウン” prices with Wex’s colorfully loud blue and yellow vending machines that, “anticipated the Era (of Japan’s endless deflation since 1992).”
