Japan is like America in the 1950s. There's a purity and innocence that defines the hijinks of kids in this country.

It's like an Archie comic book come to life except Betty and Veronica are 12 year old sexpots and Archie and Jughead are reclusive nerds jerking off to tiny anime figurines.

And just like America in the 50's there's the perpetual fear of mass death by an unstoppable force. Only in Japan's case it's the earth itself threatening to destroy everything, not the Russians.

Also like the fifties there is a lot of research into robotics since people aren't screwing enough to keep the country populated.

I don't know if I'd call that a gang, really..
Sounds like fun though. Maybe a bit annoying as long as nobody was hurt and nothing broken.

Japan has extremely strict gun control laws and virtually no gun crime.

Previous Fark threads have clearly established that both are impossible to even attempt to accomplish, which means Japan must be a figment of my imagination.

As such, the drive-by-egging gang never really existed at all.  Rest easy, everyone.

If you criminalize eggs, then only criminals will have eggs.

The egging could have stopped long ago if only there had been one responsible citizen armed with his own eggs.

Japan also lacks the 40+ million illegals in their country and actually have guarded borders.

So, are drive-by eggings a "gateway" gang activity?  First eggings, then the Yakuza?

If, as you say, you're not being sarcastic, then I will also point out that (at least in my Midwestern dialect of American English) "breathe" is pronounced with a long e sound (reed, sneak) while "breath" has a short e sound (red, dread).

Relief vs. relieve is harder I guess.

breath was simply a typo. I forgot the e. I know the difference between those two and that they don't sound alike. However, relieve and relief I didn't know. (Yes, now I looked it up to see that one is a verb and the other a noun)

Oh sure, you have great aim with an egg so they give you a sword. It's all fun and games until you have to go against a pissed off woman with Hattori Hanzo blade. That's what you get for farking around with the Yakuza.

Actually, hunting's pretty popular in Japan. Contrary to popular belief, one CAN own guns there, and many people do. Even foreigners on work visas (who are restricted in many activities) can get gun and hunting licenses.

There is violent crime in Japan, but it's usually 1) organized crime, which is not often reported in the press, or 2) crime against women, which is rarely reported and even more rarely prosecuted.

Where I used to live, when bear advisories went out, you'd see the Bubbas out about and about with 30.06s strapped on. I believe you have to win a lottery to get that job, though.  :)

The biggest crime wave to hit my area involved attacks by a serial mayonnaise-tosser. He'd nail people at the train stations. That actually made national news!

I used to do this as a teenager. My friend had an old LTD convertible that was really great and offered lots of throwing space. We also used to do the maple syrup trick where we would pull up to a jogger, pretend we needed directions and when he/she came to the car, we could unload the bottle on them and drive away. (You needed to have the cap off the top and have the bottle out of sight, this was key.)
I was an awful kid, real little bastard.
