Naika Tei is a Twitter user and anime song DJ in Tokyo. Last week, he found himself stranded in the third floor toilet of an electronics store in Akihabara with no toilet paper. So he sent out this tweet: "[Urgently needed] toilet paper in the 3rd floor toilet of Akiba Yodobashi."
18 minutes later, he sends another tweet saying: "The toilet paper arrived safely! Thank you very much!"

I had to wake up early to pick up my new drivers license. Not a great way to start the day. Well, it never used to be, but now that South Africa and especially Jo'burg is revamping itself into the 21st Century, finally, life is suddenly a lot better here. The highways have more lanes, we have a super fast above/underground train called the Gautrain that can get you to the airport in 12 minutes. Awesome! Btw, Highveld Radio had it race a Lamborghini this morning and it killed, obviously. Very cool. All that said, I got to the licensing dept in no time and walked out with my new license a few minutes later. So even the govt offices are efficient now. Literally 16 minutes later I was at work thanks to our newly improved highways. Add to that, the World Cup starts in a week and the country's energy levels are at atomic levels. Perhaps we should attach electrodes to them and generate electricity so there are no blackouts this winter? Now, I'm at my desk, sipping a delicious cappuccino, chatting to my fellow Bafana shirt-clad Jupiterians and as luck would have it, it seems I'm not the only one having a good day, as this note suggests:

One of the greatest websites ever and it's all about cheeseburgers: The Cheese and Burger Society. It's been online for a quite a while now but it's always good for a laugh / insight into making the best cheeseburgers in the world.
Now, the same people recently came out with this site: The Grilled Cheese Academy but for some reason they decided to leave out the funny. So have a look there if you want some ideas on toasted sandwiches but expect boredom.
