Fascinating photo series, though I wish I could understand the captions.

You'd never believe that this guy (Fukuzawa Yukichi) ended up getting his face on the 10,000-yen bill, would you?

That's good spotting and great trivia No-sword, thank you for sharing. In my heart of hearts though, after the delayed commenting I was hoping for a Warnock Award. It would have fitted in with my plans if you and Joey Michaels had just favorited if it took your fancy and moved on. Ah well, soldier on, next post maybe.

Oh, crap. Sorry, I'm new here. Wait! What if I just favorite my own comment and then... no, that won't work....

Absolutely No-sword. This is my agenda fired by my quest for the holy grail. Carry on as you were.
