For every fan of manga, anime, J-pop, or Zen, A Geek in Japan is a hip, smart and concise guide to the land that is their source.

Comprehensive and well informed, it covers a wide array of topics in short articles accompanied by sidebars and numerous photographs, providing a lively digest of the society and culture of Japan. Designed to appeal to the generations of Westerners who grew up on Pokemon, manga and video games, A Geek in Japan reinvents the culture guide for readers in the Internet age.

Spotlighting the originality and creativity of the Japanese, debunking myths about them, and answering nagging questions like why they're so fond of robots, author Hector Garcia has created the perfect book for the growing ranks of Japanophiles in this inspired, insightful and highly informative guide.

A Geek in Japan is one of those books I saw on the shelf at my local bookstore and just had to have. I love Japan and I love to learn more about it. A Geek in Japan is deceiving though, in that it ... Read full review

Brain Brainwashing with Nano Computers.
Brainwashing subjects of studies of the human race this is done searing memory processing areas in the hypothalamus, these dying cells stop producing the electrochemical reactions that cause the individual remember to treat the evidence no sen these agencies noted or visible downloaders in nano voltaic cell bodies imitating duplication process and growth of nerve cells, the time when performing these types of duplication are nano seconds, while trying to remember the individual any event, with nano computers, disconnections occur between different areas of the brain and hypothalamus, treating the subject performing the processes of hearing, speech, sensation, vision, perception does not remember what happens or happened in time which is in courts.
Example 1: When disconnecting the processing centers of vision and connections of nerve cells in the hypothalamus, cauterization or voltaic nano downloads with varying voltages depending on how computers produce nano nano downloads voltaic cells in the optic nerves and different connections between centers, cells, the person could fail to perceive images, synapses that are not performed because the exchange mechanism is disrupted chemical transmitters which let no electrochemical reactions and stimuli from the retina and optic nerves can be sent to different areas in the brain, remembering that even when these areas are not normally would process visual stimuli, process information such as the psyche and the brain to bring information to the sceptres makes recognize the individual images in the hypothalamus and visual processing centers in areas that are explained in the neurology literature.
Various studies have shown that the processing centers atmosphere activities take information but generally the brain processes the information to then be understood.
Example 2: to communicate with the people around us, the hypothalamus and various brain regions electrochemical reactions to produce speech, some agencies treat this process is not carried out, among the techniques they use, find, burns to the processing center stimulus that occurs in the process of speaking, suppose you are going to say the words "I are burning the brain" and a security intelligence agency need not hear or speak these conversations, in fractions of nano second satellites and computers (mainframes), nano computers to transmit signals to explode, searing or irradiating the cells causing them to die.
The areas where discharges occur nano voltaic and make people talk, the conversation product and sensations nervous system is stimulated, then the subject speaks the words, this happens at the speed of light, to say the words (I - are-burned - on ....), the agency cauterized brain areas and hypothalamus, causing a word than such as nerve cells that produce this type of electrochemical downloads do not exist.
Sometime could cauterize any area where electrochemical reactions occur voltaic and nano downloads of specific words, large numbers of dying cells in different areas so the word that the subject thinks or says not to try to talk it produces different interruptions in which other cells or other areas of the brain trying to send downloads voltaic nano as a mechanism for the individual to speak. It also happens that these agencies produce electrochemical discharges and lullabies voltaic cells to grow so that the subject can do the activities that comprise the complexities of communication, vision and hearing.
Example 3: to produce genetic damage and treat the individual does
