    Why would you want to poison a blowfish?

    Better bring a lot of money with you! :P Life here is good - hardly anything you can't get in Tokyo and yes, it is a stationary paradise - but if you don't have a filled bank account it is way less comfortable to live here than in Europe, believe me Have you ever been to Japan? Let me know next time you're around here and we can go for a tea/coffee/beer/sake/ink bottle/anything!

    Ha! Because believe it or not, many of them are just pretending to be poisonous when in fact they are not in the least bit. I'm just helping out.

    Thanks for the welcome

    I've never been to Japan and I'm afraid I'm never going to make it there, which makes me kinda sad. Mighty interesting culture over there that I'm fascinated with, but I tend to be chronically out of money at the end of each month so, no transcontinental flights to expensive countries for me. 'scuse me, gonna make myself some green tea now ... and maybe have a beer or two later.

    Oh well, I mean it's fun for a holiday, that's for sure, and flights to Japan from Europe are only half the price as the other way around :P Anyway, I understand you perfectly and the reason why I'm stuck here is exactly the same why you don't get out of there :P

    Well, after 6 years they are going to throw me out of the country next year in spring - who knows where I'll end up, maybe Austria!
