hey, that is good! lucky.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Here, someone would have stolen the contents, shit in it, then deep fried it.

..."great"? really?

I set off to run the longest i've ever run and had a tunnocks wafer* in my pocket for halfway, or when I felt like I can't go on anymore.
And it Fell Out.
Lost.

I almost didn't make it home.
I haven't stopped thinking about it.

Could have been worse. It might have been a plain chocolate one.

The worst thing I ever lost was a camera which I left on a table at a restaurant in Goa. It had about three months of holidays pics on it. I cried.

I left a camera on a rock I was resting on a trail in Nepal once and didn't realise until a hour later when a little old lady came running down the mountain to give it back to me. I was so grateful and humbled, and she had to walk all the way back up again to go home.


I've lost more umbrellas than I count.

This is a country where they sell beer from on street vending machines.

They would last about 15 seconds in the UK

I don't think crime even occurs to most Japanese people as a concept let alone something that you might do

Once my very first visit to Tokyo it was raining so I and my then new wife ducked into a coffee shop to dry off and have a coffee. While I was there I was reading my Lonely Planet guide to Tokyo and they were talking about how safe your possessions are in Japan. There was, however, one item that was often stolen: umbrellas. Hm. And then when we left the coffee shop guess what was missing from the umbrella stand?
I love you.

Umbrellas don't seem like personal property in Japan, they seem communal, everywhere you go just has a pile of umbrellas by the door, bit like white bikes in 60s Amsterdam.

In Japan you really must ask before taking something. No matter how trivial an item a Japanese won't take it without permission. Once around when i first got here my kid's bicycle seat needed raising and I needed a wrench to raise it. Two steps away from my door was parked a pickup truck with a toolbox in the back. I saw the box was unlocked so I opened it, saw an adjustable wrench, took it out and proceeded to loosen the nut on my kid's bike. But right then a guy in workman's clothes came up and started yelling at me. I spoke no Japanese but if I did I would have said, "C''mon, man. I was just borrowing it for a second. I was going to put it back. You know how it is. It's a wrench man. I'm not going to break it. It's for my kid not me." But he was pissed. Lesson learned. Don't fuck with a Japanese guy's shit. I ended up going to the store and buying a wrench for that damn bicycle seat. Why they didn't put one of those hand levers on the seat grumble grumble.
I love you.
