Not sure what you mean. Are you saying that Torquay is bumfuck? Its the only thing I can think of that you mean. If so, why Miyazaki? There are other places that are more bumfack than Miyazaki and when I here Miyazaki, bumfuck doesn't pop into my head as it would if someone mentioned say Aomori.

Torquay is a very touristy coastal town. It is famed for its, relative to the rest of England, warm climate. Miyazaki is also a touristy town and I imagine it is warmer than many parts of Japan. Of all the places I visited in Japan Miyazaki is the most like Torquay.

Nagoya drinks is a must. Some weekend in March??
Who isn't drunk at 3 o'clock in the morning? So we get stiff once in a while. This is a free country isn't it? I can take my panda any place I want to. And if I want to buy it a drink, that's my business.

The woman was Japanese and spoke very little English. The police took her to the station and called the Japanese Embassy in London. It turns out that she had flown from Narita to Heathrow and asked someone how she should get to "Torquay". She was directed to a train and arrived in Torquay in the afternoon. She then spent hours trying to find her hotel and could not find it. Her hotel was the Hotel Istanbul in Turkey!!! She had mistaken the English Channel for the Bhosphorus and thought the 3 hour train journey across Western Europe was a "bit fast". It was all sorted out and she flew to Turkey the next day.


That's more unbelievable than the Japanese couple who walked straight into the siege of Bethlehem, oblivious to all the Israeli tanks, craters, and bullet-pocked buildings. "The map says it's this way! C'mon!"

Just read through this properly. I'm just up the road from Skweekah!
I quite like Saitama-shi. Quiet but still some bars and restaurants nearby, lots of shopping only 30mins from Shinjuku but 3LDK for 7万.

I used to live in Yono. The cheapest station in the area, therefore a hub of NOVA apartments. Urawa is fine for me. Even Yono seemed good after 3 years in Mie Prefecture!

Now all I have to do is find somewhere to live.

David Hasslehoff is god in Germany. That guy could get laid with any woman he wants and he can shred on a surfboard. Oh I forgot he drives a real cool talking car as well. TOP THAT!!!!

Yeah, he did have a real cool car. Well, I thought it was cool when I was a lad watching Nightrider.

Off topic, but dont you think his smile is a littel sus? I showed the gif to my girlfriend and her first reaction was that he may be able to pull the chix, but is probably being pulled by the lads too.

I hope this isnt trolling but I searched the web and found this...

http://b3ta.com/challenge/hasselhoff/page1.htm

If nothing else its a little bit of entertainment for anyone bored in Japan or have nothing to do during a typhoon.

If Im trolling then please let me know and I'll rip it down.

Wayno :D
