Hornets: The perfect pet for people living in Japan?

While he’s an overall insect enthusiast, @togenanafushi says that hornets are the most enjoyable bugs he’s owned, citing his experiences cohabitating with black-tailed, Asian giant, and Japanese yellow hornets. He describes them as orderly and reliable pets who remember where their food is placed and sleep in the same spot every day, which is a definite advantage over pets that like to hold dominion over your living space by making their bed wherever they feel like it that particular day.

The obvious concern is that the hornets will sting their owner mercilessly, but @togenanafushi says this actually isn’t a problem. The hornets aren’t interested in stinging for stinging’s sake, and without a nest to protect, they’re not particularly aggressive unless somehow provoked. They’re even a somewhat functional pet, according to @togenanafushi, since they start buzzing around when the sun comes up, thus acting as a natural alarm clock and preventing him from ever oversleeping.

Wockettu Nūrusu!

I like how Japanese bees evolved a strategy to cook them.

I remember when they first showed the Little Bitches kicking the asses of entire hives.

Interesting strategy.

Japanese Rail Operator Says Sorry For 'Inexcusable' Departure 25 Seconds Early

In the U.S., you might expect a passenger rail operator to apologize for being late. However, in Japan — where sleek, high-speed trains are famous for arrivals and departures that you could set your watch by — leaving a station just 25 seconds early is nothing short of a disgrace.

That is what happened earlier this month at Notogawa Station in the central Shiga Prefecture, when a train mistakenly pulled away from the platform almost a half-minute ahead of schedule – at 7:11:35 a.m. instead of 7:12.

"The great inconvenience we placed upon our customers was truly inexcusable," Japan Railways said in a statement about the May 11 incident involving a Shinkansen bullet train.

Japan Today reports, "The trouble started when the conductor of the train (an express that makes its final stop at Nishi Akashi Station in Hyogo Prefecture at 9:14) mistakenly thought it was supposed to leave at 7:11, and so closed the doors of the 12-car train at that time. Realizing his mistake almost immediately, he looked down the platform, didn't notice anyone standing there, and so decided to just go ahead and leave 25 seconds early rather than reopen the doors and have to shut them again (a process that might have ended up making the train depart later than 7:12 exactly)."
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

7-Eleven store resorts to cute illustration and heartfelt message to help sell excess pasta

Won't you take pity on the poor anime girl?

Normally of course the way a store sells something it has too much of is to offer a discount, but at 7-11 the employees at the store probably aren't authorized to make such decisions. Hence the appeal to moe.
