This reminds me of my first-ever MeFi FPP (*sniff*), which occasioned a small amount of rancor in the thread that followed.

"Sportswomen are also known to be taking drinks like the famous bug juice of fireflies taken by a Japanese marathoner to improve her performance."

Mmm bug juice!

That MyNippon site makes my brain hurt. As far as I can tell, its written by American ex-pats in Japan and ESOL Japanese women, and its made for Japanese people to read in English. Unless the writers think they are actually making sense.

Bobo123, you're my new best friend. Ye gods.

And to make this on-topic: In a related story, McDonald's says they're getting rid of the Super Size option.
