#Mah poop on Nov 29, 2017 :
I had a poop a few seconds ago and wanted to watch some funny videos and I accidentally ended up on THIS website. I took a look at this website and realised how neat it was, even neater than my most fashionable toilet I had placed in my living room in case I need to go number 2. Well I never really bothered to clean me bum bum or flush the toilet, but whenever the house stinks I would blame the dog. A few days ago, a house inspector came over to my house to inspect it, and when I offered them a free air freshener that was exclusively brown shaped in a sausage shape, he said "no thank you" and walked off to the house next door. Let me tell you, the longest I have ever had a neighbour for was probably a month or so, mainly because they've been filing complaints about me to the police about my air fresheners. The police then gave me something called a 'fine' and so I offered him an air freshener, and a few seconds later, he abruptly fell onto the floor, so I just assumed that he liked the air fresheners too much and decided to pass out. So I didn't really bother to call the first aid van that drives to my neighbours house every week.

Very safe. I've never felt the least bit worried about violent crime or property crime here. No drug issues, or issues with panhandlers or the like.

In my experience Tokyo is far safer than any American city. Granted there are a few seedy areas you should avoid at night, but the overall crime rate is extremely low, a woman can safely walk alone most places at night, and the police are quite competent.
