-Apparently its cheaper for a person in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Africa and Malaysia to buy used luxury cars from Japan because of taxes or something. Further, said cars actually have an increase in resale value after being owned for a year... strange.
-The Japanese school system is shit. Everyone knows this and believes so for various reasons, but this particular reason I learned was rather new to me. Instead of allowing children to skip ahead or fall behind grades they are forced to stay at the same age level as their cohorts. As such, gifted children are forced to move to "better" schools that they can learn at their appropriate level.
-Another Japanese education system tidbit: you don't need to go to high school; so if you're really fucking retarded and want to go to school you have to go to a private highschool (yes it costs more) because you probably won't pass the entrance exam for public highschools..

This is why I hate shopping in Japan:
So lets do some math...
4,300 / 80 = $53.75
So you're telling me that a shirt that is ALREADY marked down 50% is still twice as expensive as bought directly from the brand itself?
Japanese people piss me off because they are probably the sheepiest of sheep people I have ever met (in terms of fashion but other things as well)... These people will buy anything because its "cool." I read a brief study on how most men my age are nearly poor because they spend all their money on trying to look cool. Apparently, appearing wealthy is suuuuper important to them. Important in most countries, but I guess its pretty bad here.
This is a fucking T-SHIRT. Its probably a fucking Hanes t-shirt. Go spend your money elsewhere fucking idiots.
I checked shipping and it only costs $25.11 to ship to Japan... so do the math.
Its $.64 cheaper plus Japanese shipping (I didn't factor it in).
