Default ATHENA

I was walking around in Osaka's electronic district(Nipponbashi aka DenDen Town) a few days ago and saw this. Thinking of you Athena. SOOC just thought I would show you how famous you are.

That's awesome. Probably the biggest I've seen my name ever.

When I lived in Thailand there were a few clubs called "Athena". Not places I'd visit though! Here in Malaysia there is a craft shop called Athena and in the UK I remember there being a card shop with the same name. Of course in Greece there are many people and places called Athena.

Thank you for posting this.

Yes, there are one or two Athena card and poster shops in the UK. Athena had that classic poster of the lady tennis player that probably adorned every student bedsit in the 1970's .
The Tennis Girl - the most published photograph in the world. Photographer and copyright holder Martin Elliott. The Tennis Girl Poster

With all that revenue coming in, it's no wonder you're a tax exile Athena .

I wish Paul. American citizens are taxed even if living abroad. Should have gotten that UK citizenship when I had the chance...

Yeah, but then you'll be paying 40% of your income as tax, and having one of the highest costs of living in the world! I think living in Malaysia may not be so bad... .

Oh - I didn't mean to live there again. I'd stay HERE with a British passport. You lot get to be tax free when your out country (as do most of the world actually)!
