Can’t believe they’re stealing Danny Choo’s intellectual property like this.


I live in a conservative/unfunny town, so this type of thing is almost unheard of

I would eat ice cream here several times a month.

What’s the point of a BMW 7 series? Who needs a BMW in this era of big motorcycles and ultraportable microbuses? And even if you do want a BMW, do you really need the premium 7 series cars BMW is making — vehicles that sell for tens of thousands of dollars more than the pretty capable cars made by Kia, Ford and many other rivals?

Those are the tough questions BMW has to answer at the event it will hold on Thursday to unveil its new line of luxury performance sedans.

Much too large to be @tokyorich but he’s got the same smooth moves

muji spice book

Traveling with your spice rack is not ideal. This is why Japanese company, Muji, has made a book of spices to make flavoring your food while away from home a little bit easier.

This book from Muji is full of pages that are made of spiced paper, which dissolve from the heat and moisture of cooking. Now that kick of white pepper or red chili is just a tear away. And, since it is compact and perfectly portable, the Muji spice book is ideal for when you’re traveling!

WTF is れおたたおつ. I call bullshit on this based on that frame alone.
