kaiten sushi

Post by paul_b » Mon 10.16.2006 11:43 pm

Check out the last cartoon on this page
http://tsubame-jnr.bglb.jp/~nounaihasei/img437.jpg *
for an interesting insight into 'revolving sushi'. Then try it out yourself ;-)

* The comic is mot worksafe in general but that link is pretty much OK.

[EDIT]Now direct link to .jpg

Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Gah. Well the first link was
http://tsubame-jnr.bglb.jp/~nounaihasei/page047.html

I really think harisenbon was over-reacting - I'd say a bit over PG-13 at worst on that page, at least if you don't read the (Japanese) text. There's no nudity, some sexual content, overdone blood-splatter on fight scenes but everybody's back to normal by the next .jpg.

Just make sure you scroll to the bottom of the page if you're worried.

Paul,

Honestly, I personally don't care about the content at all. Anything short for full on nudity/organ spilling, I'm perfectly cool with it. However, when you say "safe for work" what you are implying is that if someone was to glance at my screen, and see what I was looking at, there would be no problem. However, The third panel down had some rather busty shots, as well as the fact that the whole comic is drawn in a very porno-doujinshi style. If I was at home, no sweat. Even in front of my wife, no sweat. But work is a different story.

No nudity / Safe for work was the issue I had. ;)

"Safe for work" is a highly, highly relative term.

My coworkers wouldn't bat an eye at anything.

the normal "Safe for Work" would obviously be different for each job. Some could care less if you had gratuitous interaction and others would be upset at the mere mention of sex. Having said that, "Safe for Work" as a general statement I think is pretty much internationally understood. Unless someone just wants to be contrary. And there will be those who choose that route as well. ;)

Your coworkers don't browse the net at work. At least I hope not!

(well, I guess if they're riding shotgun it's okay)

Count on me to be Johnny-on-the-spot when an opportunity to be contrary presents its self.
