    What, it goes "ahhhh" once it finally gets to go? Or is it more the water splashing noise?

    At least they are clear.

    My Japanese tweeters state that I should keep watches away from them "because the magnetic force is very strong."

    I remember when I worked for Sony factory service seeing a service manual that pointed to a power supply rail with a large red arrow, and stated, in red letters, " Always be sure to short this point never."
    Another manual identified an IC in the power supply as a " regurator."
    Usually, though, their manuals were of very high quality, and a pleasure to use.

    Reminds me of an old episode of the show M*A*S*H where they were trying to disarm a bomb.

    Radar is at the camp talking to BJ & Hawkeye over the radio....

    There was a Swedish chainsaw that had in the instructions -

    'Never stop the saw with hands or genitals'

    I wonder is that happens a lot over there then.

    Make sure to never use a push mower for a hedge trimmer. That warning used to be on the box of new push mowers. Warnings should be provided starting with “do no operate if you’re a dumbass”

    I keep seeing this also with items for sale from JP and really want to know what it means.

    The same as "gully" - thats used a lot - I presume they mean distortion (its usually in the context of "some gully is heard when rotating the volume knob") but I guess it could mean that if the amplifier is really broken - you can thrown it into a gully/ravine/pit of your choice?

    Would be great for someone japanese to clarify what these ads are TRYING to say at least.

I am constructive you had pleasant writing this write-up.
