    You didn't read the sign right. It meant "no short guys" that point to the sky and say "DA PLANE! DA PLANE" --like from "Fantacy Island"!

    I guess no professional athletes or entertainers are welcome either! Another stupid "stereotype rule", there is some really great body art out there and it is part of this culture..denying it doesn't make it go away!

    Another stupid rule--Osaka mayor says that you cannot work in municipal government (any capacity .. even garbage collector? or any of the other unsavory jobs - traditionally listed for lower class (in Japan), honey wagon drivers, meat cutters, persons handling dead people etc) if you have a tatoo... Doesn't say--no exposed tatoo, simply tatoo. It was in a survey that public employees had to fill out.. if you lied, you would also be terminated.

    If you don't like my post--don't read it!

    I really don't think Laurentius is Yakuza! Has enough martial arts skills not to need a gang to cover his ass.

    As far as hi-jacking the thread, follow what is listed in the first 10 posts.
    The rest sounds like good-ole-boyz back slapping or a night listening to thanks at the Oscars or Academy Awards.

    The concept of a making it easy to find information is a mistake! Much better you have to dig through things to find something instead of it just given free on a golden platter.

    Seems this has happened to a few good threads on this site.
    What about getting back to the topic.

    I am a newbie (member that is) but I have been hanging around this forum for a long while, I don't think new members need to be side tracked with rubbish especially on Lee's good thread.
    Just my 20 cents
    WD
    I apologize for taking this thread into the weeds with my prior comments.

    Thanks to those of you who have a sense of humor and are willing to share an occasional diversion to the technicals.

    Lee, My sincere apologies to You for sending this thread off track. I would be very willing to remove my off track posts to this thread should you desire.

    Dont count on it.
    Once you have given more advice to others than you have received you can start laying down the law.

    Until then, pull ya head in.

    The one thing that's great about this website and its forums is how it's all about sharing. The experienced guys that still visit the site even though they've finished their builds, sometimes even after multiple builds, just to share their knowledge with others who are going through the process.
    Their is an air of helpfulness and camaraderie here absent from other sites. It's about guys helping other guys. And with that often comes a social bonding. So, yes sometimes posts of a thread may go askew for a short time but hey, they'll get back to business all by themselves, no worries. No need to get so upset about it.

    Anyone with a tatoo is not allowed entry into an onsen ( hot spring bath) either.
