"Is it because I'm flat?"

If you don’t know what has been going on, Funimation licensed ‘Dance in the Vampire Bund’, a pretty good Action/Supernatural series, that features nude scenes of a Vampire, Mina Tepes (title pic), that appears to be a young girl, however, she only appears physically young and is in fact very old.

March 3, 2010

This video, evidently depicting an instance of the handling of postage parcels in China, is a must watch for regular online shoppers:

Painful, I know… But it is indeed a serious wake-up call for any one who orders online on a regular basis. While this is not representative of all the services that handle packages, most of which do go out of their way to provide excellent service, it is good to be aware of the existence of the bad apples out there.
