All you have to do is get in fights with random street criminals.  They'll start fights with you and every time you hit 'em they turn into money pinatas.

Anyone else watch that Jared Leto movie on Netflix where he plays a white guy in the Yakuza?

At this point it's probably as much street cred as anything

And yet I can't find a gal to live in and play house with

Not that I'm looking, since the pandemic.
But, I'm surprised no one I was talking to right before hasn't called. Meh. Such is life.

I was gonna give a serious answer, but that article was anemic even for Soranews.

The short answer is that takoyaki might make more money than you'd think, but there's probably more profitable balls to target.

/I'm talking about pachinko, ya pervs.

Even bad investors know that having a diverse portfolio is a good way to hedge against losses.

And judging by a linked article lauding the quality of the photoshopping they use for some of their sexier endeavors, they know how to attract and retain talent in skill positions.

[Fark user image image 850x478]


That only happens in Yakuza 0, which is set during the 80s, a time when most everyone in Japan was swimming in money. After that, everyone becomes EXP piñatas who occasionally hand you a mere 5000 yen (or so) as an apology for trying to pick a fight with you.

/Played up to Yakuza 4, don't know if they become money piñatas again after that

It's the "and" that allows them to launder money. If you're dealing drugs you need a clean place to accept cash. Thus they "invest" in many food vendors and slip in the extra cash. Same thing with restaurants in the USA, like the taco shops in gas stations that only take cash.

I don't know about the spaghetti comment since I didn't see it but I'm aware of the sexual abuse story and I'm not buying it.

In this case my money is on Mia making it all up. You have to choose who to believe and in this case I believe the kid who was there for years and years and is sure it didn't happen and gives reasons why it would be impossible to happen the way she said it happened and how lying about it and rehearsing her kids to lie about it is perfectly within her character.

Mia is just like my mom was so I have a predisposition to believe the kid here. so you make up your mind for your situation.

Long read, well worth it.

Sorry, but I will happily bareback hookers and do lines of coke off of the tank of a public toilet before I'd eat a gas station taco.

I'm sure my chance of getting sick would be greater with the latter.
