From April 1st, the sale of second-hand electrical goods over 5 years old will be banned in Japan — or at least severely restricted depending on which report you happen to read. So with this in mind, I feel now is the time to upgrade and get rid of my still as good as new television and refrigerator.
The TV, as is clearly visible, was a state-of-the-art cathode ray tube model when first purchased. And the fridge is, well, a fridge — ideal for the storage of cheese or other perishable foodstuffs. Plus for anyone willing to take both, I’ll throw in the rice cooker for free.

Clearly this is a political move. In the states we would call this a special interest group.
How much for the TV?
My God. We have your second hand cars, now it will be washing machines…
“How much for the TV?”
How much are you offering (minus my exorbitant shipping costs)?
What are your shipping costs for overseas?
Just for you Paul, I’ll reduce the cost by sea from ridiculously expensive to plain old expensive, and if it’s by air, from overpriced beyond belief to merely exorbitant.
Well, I’m still using my dad’s 15 old set as my main TV. Throw in a few daikon and one of them cat paws and you may just have a deal.
Ok then Paul, sounds good to me. But if you are willing to take the fridge too, I’ll even throw in my old futon, which is only mildly stained.
A deal clincher, surely?
This is probably very bad for the environment…
