A manly project has started.
I hope they succeed while I'm still alive.
I wonder where they're going to test it, probably around Hokkaido?
I told them so many times to start with a Mobile Worker...
This is so stupid, but that's what true men do.
I'm not sure, I have doubts that this is possible...
Who cares if it's possible or not! It would sure make an exciting Olympics!
