The Buzz

Zさん:”Hey look, a bee hive! ... so what is Japanese word for ‘bee’ anyway?”
Aさん:「ハチ、just like the number 8. That’s because bees communicate with each other by dancing in a figure-eight pattern. Pretty cool, huh?」
Zさん:"I guess, but 無限大 would be even cooler.”

Shrine

Zさん:"This Japanese shrine is pretty cool. What are these two dog-lion-thing statues at the entrance?"
Aさん:「狛犬です。They are said to ward off evil spirits.」
Zさん:"Wait... why does one have its mouth open and the other have its mouth closed?"
Aさん:「One is saying 'あ' which is the first character in the Japanese syllabary, and the other is saying 'ん' which is the last character.」
Zさん:"So another way to look at it is ... the alpha and the omega?"
Aさん:「... you just blew my mind ...」
