is anime!?” Someone screams from a nearby rooftop, catching my
attention as I pass by on the street. The wind whisks the words away
before they reach my ears, forcing me to guess at his question. “7:36!”
I shout back. Flustered, the man cups his hands to his mouth and tries
IS! ANIME!” Unfortunately I do not
hear this, as I have wandered into a nearby deli in order that I might
purchase some pastrami.
They don’t call it The City of Angels for nothing. Many people live
there, and a number events have been known to take place within its borders. But this article isn’t about any of that. It’s just
that I’ve gotten a number of imaginary requests for a complete list of
thirty-one (31) things which are considered shameful and impolite in Japan.
I think I have a real rage
problem. When I get frustrated I tend to punch or throw products and
equipment. Maybe deep down I really have a problem with my own
consumerism or something, who knows.
It doesn't take much to make a stranger's life better. It also doesn't
take much to ruin it for a short time. I would recommend trying both to
figure out which feels best for you. Who knows, you might just be
featured in a future article of Santed & Tainted! Do you dare dream?

“brand” spelling or capitalization when writing i-POd. I’m deliberately

just find different things sometimes; I have nothing else to say. But
hmm… I guess I’ll need more than that to fill an entire article huh?
Now here are some more snapple facts. These particular items come
courtesy of the patients at Bethlem Royal Hospital's mental ward.
They've worked very hard to bring you these, so I hope you have a grand
old time! Thanks and be sure to have your pets spayed and neutered.
hurtful things have been said about security guards over the years:
They’re nothing but uneducated whiteboys on a power trip! They’re lazy
bigots who couldn’t cut it as cops! All they do is sit at a desk all
day popping pills and fondling themselves gently while frowning at a
dog-eared and slightly moist copy of Maxim!
Certainly these are some pretty outrageous claims to make, but I have
to say that in my years working security I found them to be
surprisingly accurate. But let’s try and see if we can’t reveal the
true nature of security guards.
you know that Snapple now has a line of fruit drinks for children?
Instead of having "fun facts" under the caps, they feature a number of
child safety tips. Here are some suggestions I have for extra tips that
might help a kid out. Once again, Snapple had better not try to steal
these from me.
