A corporation in Japan has distributed vending machines throughout airports which will give you tickets to mystery destinations for 5,000 yen, or the equivalent of $43 dollars.
With a large proportion of the population now fully vaccinated, and the months-long state of emergency finally lifted, people in Japan are beginning to book holidays again, and one budget airline has come up with a very clever idea to get people back in the skies.
Called Tabikuji (“Journey Lottery”), the new promotion is the brainchild of Peach Aviation. They’re offering return tickets from either Tokyo’s Haneda Airport or Osaka’s Kansai International, to one of a number of destinations around Japan, and while the cost is surprising, the way they’re being sold is even more of an unexpected development.
Forty-three dollars for an airline ticket is pretty sweet, even in Japan.
That’s right — the tickets are being sold from a gacha capsule vending machine, with one located in Osaka and another in Tokyo.
And because you never know exactly what you’re going to get with these machines, as the capsules are dispensed at random, that’s the way Peach is selling their airline tickets as well.
This is all well and good until you get that ticket to fabulous, sunny Detroit, Michigan.
While reading the comments in Saturday’s “Britain Has Lost Its Bloody Mind” post, RD mentioned a story about this despicable city and the despicable people who live here. A woman was raped on an elevated train Wednesday, and not one of the many witnesses intervened or even called 911. And people wonder why I want to leave this city.
A woman was raped Wednesday night on a Philadelphia train while bystanders nearby did nothing to help her, authorities said Friday.
Authorities arrested the suspect, 35-year-old Fiston Ngoy, at the 69th Street Transportation Center after a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) employee noticed the attack and called police, law enforcement officials said. Authorities believe Ngoy is homeless and did not know the victim.
I mentioned this on Saturday’s post, but it’s worth repeating; if Philadelphia is handling the job, this animal will likely get nothing more than probation. If Upper Darby (a Philly suburb) handles the job, this POS will get some serious jail time.
Timothy Bernhardt, Superintendent of the Upper Darby Police Department, reportedly said the rape was captured on security cameras and expressed shock that passengers on the train did not intervene or alert authorities.
“It’s disturbing that there were definitely people on the el and no one did anything to intervene or help this woman,” Bernhardt said. “The el” is a reference to Philadelphia’s elevated train line that runs between Upper Darby and the Frankford section of the city.
I’m truly embarrassed and ashamed of my fellow Philadelphians. The same people who claim they’re blue collar tough guys who don’t take any shite, are the same people who sat by and watched a woman get raped by a disgusting subhuman.
The city of Philadelphia – the worst city in America, in my opinion – has decided to ban police from making traffic stops for low-level traffic offenses. The drunken idiot mayor claims stopping traffic offenders is, get this, racist.
Philadelphia became the first major city to ban police traffic stops of low-level motor vehicle offenses, a tactic which critics claim disproportionately affects black people.
The Philadelphia City Council passed two Driving Equity bills on Thursday that Mayor James Kenney is is expected to sign into law this week.
Jim Kenney is a drunken stumblebum, who is despised by the left and the right. He is arguably the worst mayor this city has ever seen, and when he claimed he was going to run for Pennsylvania governor, everyone laughed at him. He rescinded that idea almost immediately.
The law creates an open searchable database recording traffic stops and prohibits police officers from stopping drivers for minor offenses by reclassifying several offenses as secondary violations.
In Philadelphia, people of color are 3.4 times as likely to be pulled over as white people, according to WPVI, which analyzed city police and US Census data.
Wow, maybe that’s because blacks are the largest section of the population at 43.8%? Or maybe because blacks in Philadelphia usually live in the most violent neighborhoods? Do you think that has a correlation to traffic infractions, because I cannot count how many people in the ‘hood blow through red lights, speed down narrow streets, and strike pedestrians before fleeing the scene.
Meet Thomas Martin Marnets of Pasco County, Florida.
Thomas was bored one day last week, so he decided to make things interesting by breaking into a residential home and staring at a sleeping girl for a few minutes. Because this guy surely does not look like a sexual predator.
Pasco County sheriff’s officials say they have arrested a man who broke into a family’s home in Holiday, then stood in the doorway of a sleeping girl’s room for several minutes.
Thomas Martin Marnets, 52, of Longwood, was arrested Thursday night in connection with the incident, which had occurred earlier in the day just before 1 a.m. Deputies said Marnets broke through the home’s garage door, then was able to break through a lock to get into the home.
Then things get a little weird…
Once inside, he walked to the doorway of the girl’s room and stood there for about three minutes before walking away, arrest reports state. A video surveillance system inside the home recorded what happened, reports state.
“He is captured with his hands inside of the front of his shorts,” the report states.
Yeah, totally not a predator.
Marnets claimed he did commit a burglary because he did not take anything. In most jurisdictions, breaking into a residence is enough to charge for burglary, whether you take anything or not. I learned that by watching Law & Order.
The illegitimate president visited the Capitol Child Development Center in Hartford, Connecticut Friday, and he decided to be totally truthful with the toddlers he was hugging.
“I like kids better than people,” President Biden said Friday after getting a hug from a toddler in Connecticut while nearby protesters bellowed, “F–k Joe Biden.”
“When I talked to all your folks out on the playground, I joked that everybody knows I like kids better than people. Fortunately they like me. That’s why maybe I like them,” Biden said during a speech in Hartford.
Oh, we’re well aware. We’ve seen you fondling them and sniffing their hair, you scumbag.
Biden, 78, kneeled outside the Capitol Child Development Center and gave one child a hug and spoke to several others. But the playground cheer was nearly drowned out by immigration reform activists and some supporters of former President Donald Trump.
Less than ten months in office, and even leftists despise this borderline pedophile. The “F**k Joe Biden chant” is one of the most entertaining parts of his presidency, and I will never tire of hearing it.
While I don’t believe I have ever been to a Waffle House, I always wanted to go. Not because of the food or the hospitality, but because there’s a good chance they will be a brawl. Or worse.
Candy Franklin (a male) claimed a Waffle House waitress pointed a gun at him after asking for cheese on his eggs. Apparently the waitress is not a fan of dairy.
Candy Franklin said an argument with a waitress over food sizzled out of control early Wednesday morning.
“It all happened over cheese eggs. At first, they didn’t bring them to me. Then they brought me normal eggs and I said that I ordered eggs with cheese on it. I tipped her and everything. It was all a normal dispute over food. I never in a million years thought it would come to gun violence,” Franklin said.
“I was looking down at my food making sure it was right and that’s when I just saw people running. I look up and she had the gun at me. I didn’t think she would shoot then she cocked it back. So, I was like maybe she is about to do something. Now, it’s time for me to turn into Rambo and get out of there,” Franklin said.
Actually Candy, Rambo would have murdered the waitress with a swizzle stick, while you ran away.
A 66-year old, wheelchair-bound British prisoner was just given another six months in prison for slapping a female guard on her rear-end.
An inmate nearing the end of his sentence has been jailed for an extra six months after repeatedly slapping a female prison officer’s backside.
Paul Morgan, 66, laughed when the guard at HMP Wormwood Scrubs challenged him, saying he ‘just got a bit excited’. But he broke down in tears as a judge extended his sentence for an act of ‘degradation and humiliation’ against a ‘vulnerable’ victim who was ‘just doing her job’.
The wheelchair-bound prisoner was soon to be released from the Category B prison, where he was sent for harassment and breaching a restraining order, when the unnamed officer turned her back on him on July 3.
This is ridiculous. Sure, Morgan shouldn’t have slapped the guard’s ass, but he’s 66-years old, and will be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. He is obviously not a security risk, keeping him in prison for another six months is idiotic.
She told the court: ‘He slapped my buttocks multiple times with both hands. I would never consent to a prisoner touching me there.’
If twenty-seven years in police work taught me anything, that quote is almost always a lie.
An Indian man was given two life sentences after he killed his wife with a King Cobra and a viper. I mean, I know malt liquor isn’t for everyone, but egads!
Sooraj Kumar, 28, set loose a highly venomous Russell’s viper snake on his wife Uthra that left her in hospital for almost two months, prosecutors in the southern Kerala state said.
While she recovered at her parents’ house, he obtained a cobra from a snake handler and threw it at his sleeping wife. Its poisonous bite killed the 25-year-old woman in May 2020.
Kumar was arrested from his home last year after Uthra’s parents raised suspicions, alleging that their daughter was being harassed for more dowry. The woman’s parents said Kumar tried to take control of her property after the death.
People in India still demand a dowry? Not for nothing, but what acceptable dowry could be gained in 21st Century New Delhi? Clean water, a seat on the inside of a train? Help me out here.
You may remember a post last week, where I mentioned Princess P (the redhead on the right) was invited to a Sciathlon at one of the private high schools outside the city. Julia was chosen for the seventh grade team, along with three of her classmates, to attend the science competition.
On the way home from dance Thursday night, I told her to just go out and have fun. It’s not like this would have affected her grades. Her teammates were also her friends, so I think the stress wasn’t really a factor. The Sciathlon lasted about four hours, with a snack break, and the teams competed on the following topics:
1. Shark identification.
2. A Paper Bridge Challenge.
3. An Atom Carnival Escape Room.
At one point, Mrs. Earp texted she was glad she wasn’t participating, because she only knew a few of the answers to the questions. She also said the all-girls school was really nice…

A group of researchers have found a certain bacteria can eradicate disease-carrying mosquitos, which carry dengue, yellow fever, and the Zika virus.
In a first for the Southern Hemisphere, researchers have shown a bacteria can successfully sterilize and eradicate the invasive, disease-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquito which is responsible for spreading dengue, yellow fever, and Zika.
The breakthrough could support the suppression and potential eradication of Aedes aegypti worldwide.
I would also suggest they eradicate all types of mosquitos, but that’s just me.
The landmark trial involved releasing three million male Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in Northern Queensland, sterilized with bacteria called Wolbachia, across three trial sites over a 20-week period during the summer of 2018.
The sterile male insects search out and mate with wild females, preventing the production of offspring. Scientists returned the following year and found one of the trial sites, Mourilyan in Queensland, was almost devoid of mosquitoes.
This may be one of the best feel-good stories I’ve posted, because mosquitos are not only disgusting, but they carry disease across the Earth. I’m all for this, and I sincerely hope they utilize the bacteria in every part of the world.
