Spammers

I hate spammers. And I've been getting a lot on the comments part of this blog recently. Some may say that it is hypocritical for The General to block these well-meaning spammers, but keep this in mind, The General has never spammed any site's comments for commercial gain. Every comment has had something to do with the contents of the post or the blog itself.
If The General were interested in trolling for fun, he'd go back to USENET, where he has quite a history. He was voted "Most Annoying" on fj.life.in-japan some years ago, and still has a bone to pick with Jason Cormier. Although, anyone from FJLIJ who wants to become a member of FunaBashing is welcome to step forward and be recognized. Honorary commissions will be given based on standard criteria.

Sports Day

23 days of public holidays in this country, and they have to put this year's "Sports Day" on a Thrusday! How the hell are you supposed to do any kind of sports, knowing that tomorrow is a working day? It defeats my ability to comprehend the calendar in these situations, and the only possible explanation that I can think of is to force people into taking vacation days in order to have a 4-day weekend.

Well, it doesn't really matter anyways, as the General has the beginning of a nasty seasonal Japanese cold. Pretty much been whacked out on that new no-alcohol Tylenol Cold liquid with cool burst. Man, that stuff puts ny-quil to shame...instant bang-bang!

Congratulations to the Chiba Lotte Marines


They deserve a big thanks for bringing a chapionship team back to Chiba Prefecture. It's kind of ironic that a Korean-owned team with an American manager beat the Guiness-record-holding Mr. Oh of the Hanshin tigers, but, then again, being a Hanshin fan is like rooting for premature ejaculation.


By the way, Chiba is actually where all of the good stuff in Tokyo is: Tokyo Disneyland (Urayasu,) and New Tokyo International Airport (Narita.)

So, basically, Crayon Shinchan's 23-ward Tokyo is the hole at the bottom of the great toilet of Japan, while all of the cool stuff (and people) actually live in Chiba, where we don't have a fascist running the show and trying to get every foreigner locked up and thrown out of the country.
