Tbh I doubt most of the non-Japanese people who can't speak a sentence are living there since it's Tokyo, but some are obviously relying on girlfriend's as translators lol..

Reminds me of Elon Musk's relationship with his dad:

Quote:
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Elon Musk – who is thought to be worth about $20 billion – described his father as a “terrible human being” but stopped short of talking about specific examples.

“You have no idea about how bad,” he said. “Almost every crime you can possibly think of, he has done. Almost every evil thing you could possibly think of, he has done.”

Mr Musk senior, who is a millionaire and made his fortune through engineering, disputed that characterisation but has admitted shooting dead three intruders in his home in South Africa. He was charged with manslaughter but said he was acting in self-defence and was acquitted.
Not generally good people.


But also yeah Steve Jobs seemed like kind of an ******* clearly a narcissist too.

never understood the link why i watch 30's/40's movies when feeling depressed. as if there's something relaxing about realizing all those healthy people back then are now dead. escaping reality is a thing too.

true that, he even seems pretty arrogant in this video before all the billions came to him. I guess you have to have an erratically bold mindset to make it in business.

Happy birthday Swiss roll, hope the coming year is kinder to you than the last

Did you do Japanese at school? Some people seem to have a real affinity for languages. I don't think I do. I studied Indonesian for about 4 years and have been there more than 20 times and I'm still not fluent. Admittedly my brain is probably screwed by all the medication I took for years - but you've also got to keep practising. I just forget the words all the time.

Japan looks nice. My son likes it there and he said I should go and have a look. He likes Osaka better than Tokyo though, can't remember why. (oh, might have been Kyoto)

No I taught myself on/off for a while, but then gave up. I'm far from fluent in Japanese though.

I think Osaka has a different vibe from what I've heard online, more laid back. Tokyo is a world city and they tend to be a bit insane and hectic.

Yeah - it looks fantastic. I'd probably love it. I think it might have been Kyoto he liked, I get confused sorry. He Skyped us when he was there one time at that Shibuya crossing one night. Looked great. One thing I noticed is they seem to have a big Kinokuniya bookstore right there at the crossing - so I should go over and have a look just for that. I like their bookshops.

Speaking of great cities - and that movie I mentioned before, "Her" was filmed largely in Los Angeles but also in the business district of Shanghai. It had some great night scenes - especially out of his apartment window.
