There are a few sick looking 240sx, 350z, wrx sti, supras, etc. I see around my town that have stuffed animals hanging from their rear bumper... What the heck?

I think it's like how the bell is hung from a Harley. Keeps the trolls from making the bike crash.

Oh well heck. The answer is right there in the article you posted. I was close!!

“It’s Thai belief that hanging a stuffed toy from your bumper or tow loop is like paying some sort of honor or last respect to the spirits of people who died on the roads as a result of car accidents… The understanding is that the spirit is amused by the object (stuffed animal or other) and therefore doesn’t cause mischief to drivers. Nice right?. Think of it as a sort of good luck charm. ” From Fuzzpaw.

No I'm not turning Japanese. I've been watching Japanese anime since I was bout 6-7 years old.

I watch pretty much all the anime I can find. I have over 1tb stored on my PC and at least 300 dvd's.

Which none of that is really good anime. Zoids is american as well if I'm thinking the CGI show.

Start with a classic. Akira. If you like it, move on.. IF not, don't bother with Anime.

Cowboy Bebop is good to start with, as well as Trigun.
