I overheard some European tourist asking some Japanese people for directions to the 'bullet train'. The Japanese people didn't understand what they were talking about. It seems that Japan's high speed train is known internationally as the 'Bullet train'. But no one in Japan knows this. Here is called the 'Shinkansen'. So if you are here in Japan and ask for the bullet, someone may call the police.
I was in a DIY store recently and due to gimpy knees I fell down face first. The store staff were well-trained for such an emergency as four or five of them rushed toward me. One of them read to me from a manual that I was having a heart attack but I shouldn't worry as the AED was on it's way. The guy with the AED had the fire of excitement in his eyes. After I told them that my heart was fine it was only my knees a look of disappointment spread over their faces. Especially the guy with the AED. A female clerk explained to me that they had practiced the AED drill for weeks and this was the first real chance to use it.
