kd8our: dervish16108: Anyone have a google street view of that place? If you have the address in romaji, you can plug it into diddlefinger.com

diddlefinger.com that sounds like a place one might find a load of white windowless vans... for sale.


It's a Penn State fanblog.

Ignorant McNugget: If they tried this in Cape Town, there'd be riots.


That's ridiculous.  You can't see Mount Fuji from Cape Town anyway.

Happy Hours: I saw an interesting piece on NHK the other day. Some Japanese artist painted a series of views of different vantage points of Mount Fuji. They were cheap when initially released. Now a print will sell for as much as a house (so they said). Damn NHK not giving exact figures again even though they do measure rainfall in millimeters. Really? Who farking cares about the millimeters of rain? I only care when we get multiple INCHES./

They didn't say it, but I got the impression the guy was like the Japanese version of Norman Rockwell.

When I read "street view" I thought of Google Earth, and was thinking they were going to remove the last of the street view images of the mountain. I was perplexed, but hey! Other cultures right?

/the article made no sense for the first several paragraphs...

80% of that sentence would have made absolutely no sense 20 years ago.
