Zero Like Me #182:
Easter Eggs: "Yale" in panel 1. Today's guest star is Umezawa and a reference to that one thing that happened at Harkness a couple years ago...
Fun Facts: Japan is quite smoking-friendly--or as the jKids call it, "smorking." There are vending machines everywhere that sell cigarettes. The cigarette ads all look like deodorant or sports-drink ads. Like it's a refreshing drink they're selling. There's also no non-smoking sections in restaurants or bars or anything--if it isn't designated a non-smoking establishment, you can assume people will light up at will. That foul stench will catch you out of nowhere if you're not careful.
Baa: On the plus side is that drugs are highly illegal here, so even if you have to deal with smokers, at least you don't have to deal with random onslaughts of weed stench. That's the one thing that life at Yale doesn't have over life in Japan: no surprise weed bombings.
