Disturbing photos - I know that's the custom here, but if you knew the deceased, better not look at the photos. IMO.

Just a terrible accident and nothing to add. RIP.

Now this could explain the reason why motodops only piss against trees and fences where there are no tiles.

And you all thought they were uneducated.

Ha! Now I feel better about all the drunken times I've pissed outside. It was definitely the safer option.

Dead men don't pay. Better to blame the landlord.

yesterday a glass pot lid escaped my grip and bounced onto the wood counter. I thought AHA!!! fucking all tile and cement SE ASIA would have killed you pot lid. Countless things have bounced onto the counter or floor and survived. Might explain why so much plasticware exists there (beyond it being cheap). I've really come to loathe tile everything.

I'd say Dag is RIGHT dammit, always wear your helmet, especially in the bathroom. :)

Beware of sleeping near tiles. They have dark powers, similar to the breath stealing trees.

So, good Feng Shui dictates 'Never Sleep above the ground (floor), within a short roll of Tiles.

レンジで殺さ is the term they use.

Cambodians and other Asians, both understand and respect this but sleeping on mats (at ground level, aka on the floor)
