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.

George Takei is legendary, but nobody came for him that didn't also come for Simpsons Yakuza Guy first.


Phrasing?

fatalvenom: wildcardjack: 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.

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.


Gas Station Taco would be an amazing name for a Hole cover band...

I'll be vocals
I'm *almost* as good as the person who sang for CPAC


As an aficionado of sex work, inappropriate drug use and street food across this globe, I'm in.

I mean, if you need an electric bassoon.

I can only find some weird cross-hate by James Gunn about Leto. Do you have anything substantial behind this veiled remark?

Saiga410: If they are making that much selling food, why take the risk of their criminal endeavours?


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.

That is definitely some interesting xenophobia

Uhhhhh.... it's a game about Japan made by Japan and it is unapologetic about it.

Well. Their also cool with Black face too, right?

I just posted gifs one of my favorite game series. I'm not sure what fight you're trying to pick, but it's too late in the evening for me to be playing against the Golden State Social Justice Warriors.


He's playing Straw Man; entirely disingenuous.
