        That's the fun of HHGttG: each version is subtly different, so all the quotes are correct: you get a "ghastly", he gets a "ghastly", everybody gets a "ghastly"!

    Making cars is just a (very) small part of Mitsubishi...

    And the auto group probably has nothing to do with this project.

    At least Square Enix isn't part of this trash fire. Every time I hear the words Japan and metaverse in the same sentence I worry about FF XIV.

      Sony and Nintendo don't seem to be part of it either. Methinks this is for losers who don't already have successful ecosystems.

    A Perfect Oriental Pioneering AI Partnership Fit for Exotic Erotic LOVERS

    Now there’s an Earth shaking development come right out of nowhere to surprise and worry more than just a chosen few .... A Japan Metaverse Economic Zone which would appear to be proprietary custom made for Live Operational Virtual Environment Research Scientists?

    Quite whether that is indicative of a permanent systemic and endemic mental deficiency or a temporary slow learning glitch which can be corrected with suitable treatment is an engaging zillion dollar question, methinks, which is best imagined as the latter rather than realised as the former.
