  • Credit Card in America
  • アメリカは消費社会と一般的に言われていますがその裏にはクレジットカード支払いという確立したシステムが存在します。 ちなみに外出する際に現金を一切持たない人も珍しくありません。 これはクレジットカードによる支払いが一般的になっていることに起因します。 それを煽るかのように、クレジットカード会社は航空会社のマイルなどを餌に消費を煽ります。 ちなみに先月日本に帰国した際にはクレジットカードで貯めたマイルを [続きを読む]
  • Lime Bike VS Hubway
  • It has been a while…ボストン近郊では最近こーいう自転車産業がうまれつつあります。 一つは乗り捨てのライムバイク。 各一台にGPSがついており、月に約30ドルの固定メンバー費プラス30分以内のライドは$1。 これだと自分の自転車を買って鍵を買ってメンテするよりも安いかもしれませんねぇ。 もう一つはHubway。 最近シルバーから青色に変わりました。 こちらは1年間のメンバーシップが約$100で30分以内のライドはこれに含まれ [続きを読む]

  • Ash
  • “Hey,Ash!”My twin Hazel’s voice startles me to the present. I glance up from my book and quickly mark it by tracing the edge
    of the page with a glowing golden finger. The bookmark appears and I slap the book closed.”Whaddya want?”She smiles.”Mm. C
    ’mon, Mom wantsus to go hunt.”I flick my small eleven-year old hand and the book floats up the wooden stairs and out of sight,
    to my room. Now, w [続きを読む]
  • Global Happiness Scale
  • http://lite.blogos.com/article/285723/Japan low.U.S low.Boston is ranked as 35th in quality of life and not even showing up on the
    cost scale; somehow chicago is considered 45th costly city. This is a bunch of bullshit I tell you. Boston is much more expensive
    to simply live. Having lived in both cities, my opinion counts here.Tokyo is probably cheaper with higher quality of life than Bo

  • God’s Intention
  • This event took place on one sunny day in summer. Adam and Eve decided to go out and play golf. Adam was not playing very well a
    nd he cursed every time he missed his putts on the green. He would start with god damn and get progressively worse and eventuall
    y kept saying FUCK every stroke. Eve tried to console him and told him to stop cursing because God is watching them both from the

  • Creative Writing 1
  • The moment I open my eyes, I see one thing. Blue flits of color skimming about a foot from my face. Then I hear the Beethoven. It
    makes sense. I have synesthesia, which is varied in lots of different ways. Mine means I have colored hearing, and colored taste.
    I am totally not a morning person, but Mom insisted before I wake up at six every day. Oh, well. Schools starts at eight thirty, b

  • Mark Twain Quote
  • “It aint things you do not know that gets you in trouble. It is what you know for sure that just aint so. ”What a great quote by Mark Twain…. We use quotes from others all the time. The reason for that is someone already said in a way that is so succinct to the point that you cannot say it any better.As you age, there are many things you will be able to relate to the quotes left by others.

  • Japanese 3D Puzzle
  • Japanese 3D PuzzleMy nephew played this when he was growing up. Years later, he is about to pass his entrance exam to Tokyo Unive
    rsity. My strongest guess is he will pass. Whether this puzzle has anything to do his academic performance is unknown. At least
    , for now, my 3-year old can kill time with me before she goes to bed. Very well designed, I thought. [続きを読む]
  • How do you discipline a Rock?
  • It is becoming more of a joke to continue this blog but since I got started, I might as well do it for a year. My 13-year old son
    asked me how one would discipline a rock. I said I dont know. His answer: You hit rock’s bottom…..You get it? When we dis
    cipline a child, we spank them. In case of rock, this is called a pun. Hit rock bottom means, you hit the lowest point of your l

  • Put the book on hold

    ve a notice saying the book is ready. Now to be on the waiting list, you will say, could you please put the book on hold? [続きを読む]
