    How did Mark Willacy get a job in Japan as a foreign correspondent? The guy's Japanese is worse than my brother-in-law's English, and you know what? That's not a compliment.

    I'd say he responded well to the station head's Japanese command of "ore ga iku made namero". Once he'd performed that task, any job in the world was his.

    Must have been a lot of body language to get his point across - mind you I think that would be an easy one for most people.

    Yeah, at a certain point it'd become self explanatory I think.

    People who think Adele isn't fat, and yell this at me constantly

    She is. She also has an amazing voice. But both these things are facts.

    It's almost alarming how often people mix up the phrases "He's/she's/I'm/you're not fat!" and "What does it matter if they're/you're/I'm fat?"

    I don't understand why these people think denial is a better attitude than having priorities.

    Adele's problem is that she's a whining bag.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Careful retaliating to a tailgater though.. I stuck my brights on and followed a guy for about ten km after he tailgated me down a pass.. ****tard opens his door and appears with a wheel wrench..

    Why bother following the guy for 10k with your high beams on?

    Oh noes - he tailgated me - I'll show him by tailgating him - that'll show him to tailgate me, who does he think he is **** i hate ****s who tailgate - oh no my overreaction to a tailgate has led to an overreaction of the initital tailgater and he's beating my face in with a wrench - but I sure showed him. **** I hate tailgaters.

    Can confirm it doesn't take much to set off some, though. Was in a car on the way home from band practice, my mate driving. Car behind was mercilessly tail-gating so he brake-checked them, they hit the skids then zoomed ahead, slowed down, stopped and then 4 of the biggest bikie-looking ****ers got out and ran at our car with club-locks and other metallica in hand.

    Needless to say we got the **** out of Dodge but they followed us for a while before getting bored enough to leave us alone.
