OK I'm confused now, you are saying I'm going to learn something without the carrot to follow? You still have a lot to learn about men .

Seriously though I love the thread and hopefully someone does a video .

Interestingly enough, most shop signs are direct transliterations of their English name (and not a translation), so if you're into puzzles, you can work out the letters!]
