    Oh. Thatís right.
    I completely forgot he lives here.
    Wonder if I looked him up, if heíd be holding a grudge.

    If my next pics of me have me with a black eye, I guess Iíll have my answer.

    I would love to visit Hiroshima. Assuming that I actually make it to Japan someday, that would be a definite MUST VISIT. Tell us (or at least me) about it, please!

    I don't know if I posted this here or not, but I recently found out that a now deceased great uncle of mine actually worked closely with the atom bomb squadron in WWII. He was stationed on Tinian island and is listed on the Manhattan Project site. He never told anyone until shortly before his death. I never had a chance to ask him about it, unfortunately. Knowing that I had family so close to the atom bomb, the whole thing gave me a little chill and a visit to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, maybe as a kind of familial penance, would help settle that chill a little bit. I don't know of anyone in my family who has visited Japan, but I don't really talk to many of them anyway, so someone might have.

    It sounds like an amazing trip. I am jealous. Eat some ramen, dengaku, doriyaki and whatever countless other amazing foods that you come across there.

    As for IT, I'm still in that field, but I spend my days mostly sitting and typing code, so it doesn't have the physical aspect that your work seems to have. I recently started a new job at a pretty laid back smaller company and I'm enjoying it pretty immensely (at least while it lasts, my last job was great for six years, then a few new hires in the right/wrong places changed everything). In any case, I completely understand the desire to do something else.

    どら焼きとラーメンは大好きです!
    Funny you should say that.
    While at the Hiroshima museum yesterday, I told my brother about one of my childhood friends. Still have contact with him. His great uncle was on the Enola Gay that day. Donít know if he was the trigger man. Never asked. But he was part of that mission. After touring the museum, it appears (and I could easily have misread this) as though the Japanese went to great lengths to emphasize the horrors of nuclear weapons, while simultaneously downplaying the US role in the bombing. There was an awful lot of ďthis was a horrible thing for humanityĒ without assigning much blame.
    Word of warning... itís about 5 hours from Tokyo by bullet train.
    And get a Jrail train pass for a week. Itís $400 CAD but cheaper than 2 single tickets to go there and back.

    We went out to dinner afterwards with a friend of my brother.
    They ate raw cow stomach. Pardon the pun but I donít have the stomach for that stuff.
    I stuck to recognizable beef and pork cuts, BBQd right at our table.

    LOL! Well if the average height of a Japanese male is only 5'7" then you shouldn't have too much trouble spotting him in a crowd because I think he's over 6 ft.

    There are a lot more non-Asians here than I would have thought.

    He should be easy to find - look for the tall guy arguing about politics or individualism with someone.

    The entire crew of the Enola Gay on the Hiroshima mission is listed on this page.

    I'm assuming the one who actually dropped it, or who at least gave the order, was the bombardier.

    I don’t think my friend would mind me posting it here since the last name is different and nobody but ya comes here anyway.
    It was Tibbets.

    I'm actually not against mass death so long as it's not caused by humans. I reckon mother nature knows what she's doing but when it comes to humans I'm not so sure.

    Nuclear weapons are an important subject but I think shoe laces should be discussed sometime in the near future.

    SHOE LACES? Really? Yes let's all just keep our lives a little more complicated just for old time's sake.

    I can allow you to think for yourself or I can think for you, whatever you wish. Now please lay off the seaweed, that shit can really fuck you up. I would suggest copious amounts of watercress instead.

    For the uninitiated, earlier means earlier today. Otherwise it would mean earlier.

    Look, I'm just here to have a good time, if you don't like it then hunt me down and accidentally impale my ear lobe with a fish hook or something.

    I've heard tell of several different types and I must say that I am totally appalled.
