Yesterday I climbed Mount Fuji on the Yoshida Trail, taking advantage of the only clear day before the next taifun.

WAT. Tastes more like Sprite... Diet Sprite.

I didn't know that the Prusa could use so many different materials.

Bubble bazooka @ Maker Faire Tokyo.

Now anyone can 3D-print their own Terminator T800. Let's democratize technology! ๐Ÿ˜

@mayuutann @y @alana @girlish_number Are there any credit cards in Japan that give cash back instead of points? (cash back means that if you buy any product anywhere for $100, you get $1 or maybe $1.5 credited back in your bank account).

These are common in the US, but in Japan the closest thing I could find is the Amazon Mastercard, but it doesn't give real cash, only points for buying more stuff on Amazon.

"Our diet is heavily skewed toward the omega-6. We eat animals that eat primarily corn and soyโ€”crops that we subsidize to the tune of more than $15 billion annually. We eat processed potato and wheat products drowning in soy oil. We favor desserts soaked in high fructose corn syrup."

"I recently learned from an eminent cardiologist that around half of all patients first report heart disease to their doctors by dropping dead."

Who would expect to find such spiritual depth in... Wired?

"Followers of Shinto, unlike Judeo-Christian monotheists and the Greeks before them, do not believe that humans are particularly โ€œspecial.โ€ Instead, there are spirits in everything, rather like the Force in Star Wars. Nature doesnโ€™t belong to us, we belong to Nature, and spirits live in everything, including rocks, tools, homes, and even empty spaces."

I did this crazy video to teach a friend of mine to make a Tortilla.

You should watch it and learn to make a tortilla.

Make tortillas and send me pictures.

Hey @Purism, do you have plans for new laptops based on Cannon Lake or at least Kaby Lake?

I want to reward your excellent work with Coreboot and de-blobbing, but I need a new laptop soon and I'd rather not buy Skylake hardware which is ~3 years old now.

Every new article on the making of Blade Runner makes me want to watch it one more time.

I wasn't a big fan of Veganic To Go's burgers, but their curry rice bowls are simply the best in Tokyo ๐Ÿ˜‹

And finally, I had to specify the driving license type, and there were 10 similar-looking options. With Google Translate, I couldn't make sense of it: "regular car license (AT only)", "medium size car", "semi-middle sized car"...

I had to ask a Japanese friend: turns out I have "drivers license", the first in the list ๐Ÿ˜‚

Then the form wanted both the "mobile" email and the "computer" email. I entered my usual email in both fields, but the mobile one had a problem in the domain. Did they want something like loser@nttdocomo.com?

Bah. Eventually, I figured that a @gmail.com address is an acceptable mobile email. Bah.
