Pan-kun And Evil Blow Dryer

Take a look at this hilarious clip as seen at Japan Probe. Featuring some old footage of our lovable Pan-kun in his Winter Adventure with dog buddy James!

In the clip they: 1) ring a bell of happiness, 2) say hello to a parrot, 3) fool around in a dog salon, and 4) go rolling on a cart. Number 3 is probably the best part of the clip :p

Change Your Fate: Burn Palm Lines!

How are the palm lines on your hand like? Is it good or bad? For me people say that I will have a long life, etc. I can’t remember the rest, but I do remember another one about having a good husband or something o.o

TV Tokyo’s “Ariehen Sekai” introduces a plastic surgeon in South Korea who uses a laser to alter the palm lines of patients who think their hands are unlucky:

This is done so as to change your luck in employment.. But I highly doubt that these methods will …

Pan-kun Cleans House

Pan-kun returns with some cleaning up tricks. Previously he was impressed with some magic tricks, and today, he’s helping to clean the house ^^.

James seemed to be having a hard time in controlling Pan-kun ^^”. Love to have an animal who would help clean up my house! So sweet of Pan-kun to give James a massage after the “end-of-year cleaning”!

Windows 7 Launch Event Gone Wrong Because of Touchpanel

I have been reading up on the launch of Windows 7, and I seen a certain Live TV show in Japan, showing the demo of the Windows 7, only to have some glitch problems. Initially I thought this was nothing much, perhaps the guy just didn’t know how to use it XD. Apparently, at the recent Akihabara Windows 7 launch event, Microsoft Japan’s CEO Yasuyuki Higuchi was having some difficulty using the new Windows 7 with the touchpanel >_<.

I’m no computer expert, but apparently the touchpanel is giving the new …

Pan-kun Getting Impressed with Magic Tricks

Pan-kun gets to be impressed with magic tricks today. I can tell that the magician is trying his best, but Pan-kun attempting to look and touch the items involved in the trick ends up exposing the “trick”. Haha. This is hilarious XD.

If you have no idea who Pan-kun is,
He is a young chimpanzee in Japan often featured on the NTV television show “Tensai! Shimura Dōbutsuen” (“天才!志村動物園”, lit. “Genius! Shimura Zoo”) and the TBS program “Dōbutsu Kisō Tengai!” (“どうぶつ奇想天外!”, lit. “Unbelievable Animals!”). Most of the segments feature him and his bulldog …

World’s Fastest Clapper

How fast can you clap? Can you do it like Kent French who managed to clap 721 times in a minute?

And here is Kent French, appearing in a Japanese TV Show.

I tried to copy the way he clapped, but my sweaty palms end up slipping over each other, with no sound XD.
