Japanese is difficult. Did I mention?

Look at these:

They all say "Stop". But compare the symbols. They're all different. And these are not the only combinations I've seen. Why not make them the same? Especially for something as important as "Stop".

Great question. For a country as rule and structure oriented as Japan, this lack of precision is an interesting surprise to me.

By the way, thanks to all for recent comments.

Yeah, so um, we leave comments and you gloat? Don't return comments? Don't reply to your own comments? Like talking to a big wall?

What in the WORLD do you make with expensive chicken cartilage?
