I remember browsing a sex shop in Kyoto and seeing a lady just casually walk her kid past the hardcore porno and the used panties with pictures of their previous owners stapled to them. This is probably considered low tier degeneracy over there.
What kind of mother takes her kid into a sex shop in Kyoto? Even by Japan standards, that's fucked up.

Better yet, what the hell were YOU doing in a sex shop in Kyoto?

Please tell us all about your experience and don't be afraid to get graphic...I'm going to need every detail I can get while I check to see if Chris Hansen's phone number is still working.

It was some strange hybrid of a tourist souvenir shop and a sex shop, with the overpriced trinkets and tshirts at the bottom level followed by 4 floors of the type of shit that would make a garden variety American pervert faint like a Victorian damsel. At the top floor is the coup de grace, the "high end" sex dolls, only ¥300,000 for your very own dead eyed horror, it certainly won't end up eventually strangling you in the middle of the night!

As for what I was doing there... well as they say, when in Rome...

The Kyoto part is not the part of my question that bothers me.

I mean, if I were that lady, wouldn't I just drop the kid off at home while I went to pick up hardcore yaoi mangas and a tentacle-shaped vibrator....

Not that I know what Japanese moms usually buy in Kyoto sex shops....
Huh. Do Japanese women actually go in for yaoi like Tumblrina fujoshits and tARTs tend to do? I wasn't sure if yaoi's appeal to women (I use that term loosely in light of the already mentioned groups) was limited to Western weebish types or not.

Yaoi and homoerotic shit is actually produced a lot by women. One cursory glance at a BL story reads like any given middle aged woman's erotica, just with two guys instead of one guy and one girl.

The modern submarine is not a simple machine. A loss of propulsion, unexpected flooding, or trouble with reactors or weapons can doom a sub crew to a watery grave.

Also, it’s a good idea to, like, close the hatches before you dive.

Call it a lesson learned for the Indian navy, which managed to put the country’s first nuclear-missile submarine, the $2.9 billion INS Arihant, out of commission in the most boneheaded way possible.The Hindu reported yesterday that the Arihant has been out of commission since suffering “major damage” some 10 months ago, due to what a navy source characterized as a “human error” — to wit: allowing water to flood to sub’s propulsion compartment after failing to secure one of the vessel’s external hatches.

Water “rushed in as a hatch on the rear side was left open by mistake while [the Arihant] was at harbor” in February 2017, shortly after the submarine’s launch, The Hindu reports. Since then, the sub “has been undergoing repairs and clean up,” according to the paper: “Besides other repair work, many pipes had to be cut open and replaced.”

t’s hard to articulate how major a foul-up this is, but Kyle Mizokami does a good job at Popular Mechanics: Indian authorities ordered the pipe replacement because they “likely felt that pipes exposed to corrosive seawater couldn't be trusted again, particularly pipes that carry pressurized water coolant to and from the ship’s 83 megawatt nuclear reactor.” For context, a submarine assigned to Britain’s Royal Navy narrowly avoided a complete reactor meltdown in 2012 after the power sources for its coolant system failed.


The incident is also quite an embarrassment — and strategic concern — for the Indian Armed Forces. A Russian Akula-class attack sub modified to accommodate a variety of ballistic missiles, the Arihant represented a major advance in India’s nuclear triad after its completion in October 2016. (India in 1974 became the 6th country to conduct a successful nuclear test.) Indeed, the Arihant’s ability to deliver K-15 short-range and K-4 intermediate-range nuclear missiles was envisioned as a powerful deterrent against India’s uneasy nuclear state neighbor, Pakistan.

“Arihant is the most important platform within India’s nuclear triad covering land-air-sea modes,” the Hindu reports. Well, it’s important if it works — and it probably helps to make your submarine watertight.

There's not a fail-safe sensor system that prevents the submarine from diving if the hatches aren't closed?
....

2.9$ Billion seems a bit much for that kind of functionality. Didn't they know that Pajeet would be too busy looking for open bog and vagene on his smart-phone to pay attention to this?
