4 is a good one and some of the newer home designs in NA also has that now.
9 is a good way to play practical joke.

M3M3M3, My wife actually went to Revenue Canada and some employee told her that's what needs to be done. he also showed her how to fill in the tax form.... It actually saves you a lot of trouble in the future as Revenue Canada is kind of like a licensed mafia (there had been cases that Revenue Canada ruin someone's life regardless how the judgement of the court) and they will do a lot of things to ruin your life if you disobey. After all, filling in with everything 0 only takes a minute. Of course, unless you have billions of dollars which you can hire a lawyer to deal with them (in that case, they will give you a discount on tax owing if you do own them money); otherwise, you are pretty much screwed when they decide to harass you.

Too many people. My son who works as part-time as a licensed swimming instructor/life guard outside his school could tell you all the gross stories he had seen in a pool. It was funny for me though.

Why not just use a cordless vacuum cleaner? If they can make something that could catch a fly in its mid-air stunt flying, that would be interesting.

M3M3M3, you need to declare non-resident with Canada Immigration if you plan to stay in another country longer than 183 days, otherwise, you still need to file income tax. Even if you declare non-resident, you still need to file that annually but it just that the end is 0 dollar that you have to pay back to the government. Also, as non-resident, you do not have the health benefit which is right as you do not pay any tax already. I worked outside Canada in another country for many years, that's how I know. Then, when you return and plan to stay and work in Canada, you also need to declare that with the immigration officers at the border and inform Revenue Canada. Re-apply the health benefit after 30-60 days - not quite remember the duration.

My family will be visiting Tokyo in August. Probably also Odaiba in mid-August. Good that I will miss that as I am not too fond of too many people. However, isn't Fuji TV is doing their annual thing there?

McDonald and fancy restaurant. They just do not go right in the same sentence.

I have a few Muslim co-workers, sometimes I make fun of them and ask them strange questions and they know I am joking around and joke with me as well. I think that's my image in the office - except when I am working, when I am chatting, I will make jokes and fun. One of them told me that it is only if your body is good and healthy enough to do so.

Kimono looks pretty with those fancy patterns. When you view it, view it as art. There is something totally wrong with people today. Then, again, I have also read that some place people wants to cover up the Statue of David for reason of indecency. - they better never travel to Rome.

Cool! Let's hope that there is some speed and agility into the fight,. I wonder if they will just battle like bumper cars - just slam against each other - then, that would be boring.

Huh! Instant noodles a Japanese invention? Or, is it another way to show the world that education in history/fact is really lacking in Japan?

When you are dead tired, doesn't matter. Do not need to worry about roll and fall - good. If you have back pain and knee injuries, then it is hard to get out - bad.

I have seen that before but not from Lexus. Someone has already made that with similar thing that the ground need to have something built in. If they can make it on any regular surface, then would be a more realistic use. Now, it is no difference from a levy train without the rails.

They should just say the 3rd arm is actually from an Ayakashi possessing the girl and mix a few with the correct printing. Then you can create an urban legend that if you happen to have the one with only 2 arms. That means the goblin that was in the girl has left and entered the owners body. That would be a good prank or making of an interesting low budget C-rated horror film.
