What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

When using Hankyu trains in Japan, if you want to go from, let's say, Kyoto to Kobe, you have to take two trains. One goes to Umeda; the next goes to Kobe. Japanese trains being popular and whatnot, where you change trains makes a big difference.

If you change trains in the Umeda terminal, then you can easily get a seat, because the Kobe train starts there.

But Hankyu does not advise you to change at Umeda. It advises passengers to change trains at the station right before Umeda, like 3 minutes up the line, called Juso.

But the thing is, you won't get a seat. Because all those pesky people getting on at Umeda already took the seats. Hankyu advice sucks.

So, whenever this pernicious station has been mentioned by train staff, announcers, or friends, the reply has always been "Juso No Thankyou."
