Only in Japan
Facebook friend's post yesterday:"Rare
excitement on the bus here in Tokyo. Skateboarder tried to cut the bus
off, barely realized his mistake, bus slams breaks, old people fall
over and luckily the skateboarder fell back avoiding being sucked under
the front wheel, unlike his skateboard. The miracle of Japan is not one
cuss word was spoken, no lawsuits, no police, no fights, the
skateboarder embarrassingly smiled, waved to the driver "my bad", picked
up his pulverized board and we continued on 30 seconds later. Love this
country. — at 渋谷駅 Shibuya Station.
