I remember seeing one of those Curta calculators before. Pretty neat.

Did you know that toyota makes all prospective drivers go through an extensive background check and won't sell a car to someone they don't think is deserving?
Interesting. Did not know they were that strict about it, but there's a bit of modesty around the model so it kinda makes sense.

Cool. I'd only buy one if I had a palatial estate with lots of shelving to put random nicknacks, because that's pretty useless for anything else.

For people that like bigger numbers and lots of names, because that is ugly and I know it doesn't help performance.

The Toyota Century is an amazing car. It was awesome to see them in person in Japan.

There are a lot of cool features on those cars. For example, even though the Century is a flagship car, they are still offered with cloth seats because cloth is more comfortable than leather. I don't know about the newest models, but at one point, cloth was the only option. Also, tinting windows is not very elegant so the Century comes with window blinds.

lol, I would totally drive (actually, I'd totally be driven) in one of those.
