When I first came to Japan, I refused to wait 10 mins for what I considered to be fast food. I then learned how nice the burgers are at Mos Burger and that they are completely different to what one would expect at Mc Donalds.
Our car gets the Sha-Ken - a checkup to see if the car is road worthy and must be taken every few years. Each checkup costs about 70000 yen. If the car is not inspected by the next checkup due date then one is not allowed to drive the car.
Currently playing Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword on the DS. I have the PS3 version and was skeptical at how a single stylus could control the main character and all the different moves. After playing it for a bit however, I'm still pretty amazed at how well the game is put together in terms of graphics, sound and gameplay.

Mac users - have you ever seen this message appear after your machine crashes?
I have my home directory on a different partition than my system folder - a habit that I carried over to Mac when I switched from Windows.
When the machine crashes, the partition that has my home directory is unmounted for some reason. After leaving the machine for 5 mins, the lost partition will remount itself and I'm able to log in again...
While the Macs do crash from time to time, they don't need restarting as much as my Windows machines did. When Leopard is booted up, its usually on or sleeping for a few weeks without a single restart.
Question for all users - how often do you restart your machine?
