    Off topic but I was thinking about Japanese culture randomly yesterday and they are some creative people.

    My Favorite video game- Japanese made
    Favorite cartoon growing up- Japanese
    Favorite two kids movies- Japanese


    For such a tiny nation they are extremely impressive.

    Not the sole reason, but...

    Because they built upon what the West had already learned and achieved through trial and error over hundreds of years -- industrially speaking -- and learned it themselves in like a decade or so. They had a major head start once they opened their borders and became non-isolationist.

    If the money was stolen from a bank or what not, chances are its serial numbers are marked and tracked. Not a good idea to go blow a bunch of money in that case. Im not sure what I would do though. That is an awful lot of money tax free...

    Buy drugs with it.

    Drug dealers would then spend it and take the the fall for the stolen money.

    Profit.

    Giving it back is a better plan than getting hacked up by the Yakuza .

    manga is a comic.

    Could stick to spending it in small amounts in places like grocery stores and fast food where they're not going to track your ID. That much could pay for all your food for decades.
