    I had an awesome ride to work today. This short dishevelled black guy was screaming at the top of his lungs in another language and pointing to an invisable person. I was trying so hard not to laugh. His mannarisms, and facial espressions were priceless.

    While generally the only big problem with public transport in Japan is that it's crowded all white people attract the nuff nuffs. The crazy dudes here don't yell at invisible people they yell at the nearest whitey. Generally they are harmless though.

    :fu: You gunna get the back of my hand you fucking nuffy.

    Nuff nuffs are mentally challenged individuals; they tend to like talking to white people on trains in very loud voices. They'll walk up to you and scream "America Jin desuka"? or "Rock n Roll sukidesuka"?

    Nuff nuff or nuffy are terms that started in my home town and spread through many parts of Australia. My home town has one of the biggest psychiatric hospitals in the country. Some people think nuffy stands for 'nobody' or 'nothing' meaning an insignificant person and it is used that way in many places these days however it was originally synonymous with retard.

    on the platform yesterday afternoon waiting for a train. Dude in a tie dye shirt approaches:

    dude: "excuse me, can you tell me what time it is?" as he look to my wrist which has a watch
    me: I bring my wrist to my face and read the time "it's 1:20"
    dude: "is that, like, the correct time?"
    me: "uhhh. yes."

    :facepalm:

    I am always very wary of people who ask me for the time and I proceed with caution. I always think they will think I am off-guard and grab my phone, or snatch my portfolio case or something. I always hold my phone firmly, and step back and keep them in view.

    +1, but the Union Square 4-5-6 stop at 1:20 on a Saturday is fairly safe. Also, I used the watch.



    also, my wife is constantly somebody's "new best friend". People always feel the need to talk to her despite the fact that she always has headphones in and/or is reading a book. I don't get it and neither does she.

    A week or so ago she was reading a book by the Dalai Lama, and somebody struck up a conversation - but the dude was a monk from tibet (or something like that), so it was cool.

    Also, she has been proposed to a handful of times. Sadly, she's stuck with me.


    If there's a category to add, I'm thinking something along the lines of "the rainmakers". It's those precious flowers who are so afraid of the rain that they use their umbrella as long as they can while they descend the stairs into the subway. The further down they get, the less rain there is, but the less room there is so they have to close their umbrellas - and of course a bucket of water from the closing umbrella comes crashing down on those right below them on the stairs. These people need to fucking die.
