Snapshots and Drunk Men

I was flipping through the hundred of pictures I've taken over the last year and a half on my cell phones and was inspired to make a short video showing some of the more interesting ones.

Here it is:

Things have been really warming up in this neck of the woods. Today saw some temperatures around 10C and tomorrow is supposed to be 15C. I'm sure things will get a little cold in the near future though. I'm also sure it will be much colder in Tokyo at the end of the month when I head up there.

Here is a little something to give you a laugh. I actually read this story a few days ago, but wanted to share the joy.

Man arrested after applying for driver's license renewal while drunk
KANAGAWA - A 45-year-old man was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol on Thursday after he went to a police station to renew his driver’s license while drunk, police said Friday.

Susumu Moriya, an unemployed resident of Sagamihara City, went into Sagamihara Kita police station just before 9.30 a.m. Thursday to renew his license but could not understand the instructions given to him by an officer on how print out a form via the touch screen computers. The officer noticed the man’s breath smelled of alcohol and asked him how he came to the station. Moriya said he walked.

Another officer then tried to help but Moriya became out of control and threw his license on the ground. The officer asked him to go home, and saw Moriya get into a car in a parking lot outside and drive away. He was arrested for drunk driving about 200 meters from the station.

Moriya told police he had been drinking since about 6 a.m. and had consumed two cans of beer and several glasses of shochu. A breath test revealed he had 0.45 milligrams of alcohol in his breath per liter exhaled.
