Predictable comments, "send them home, why are they here, balabalah blah blah, go home cry cry cry"

The US Military will not be leaving Japan, accept the fact and you are better off.

You may wish it all you want, that is fine and you may join in the gate protests at any of the bases. Oh and in the summer when it is open base you will go there with a F**ing smile on your face.

I spent 13 years dealing with the ignorance/lack of info in Japan regarding why we are there.

Taking a taxi from Narita to Tokyo is crazy. 

My first thoughts! Only noobs to Japan, or those with disposable income will pay for that trip.

Omegle hackers and pranksters were quite hilarious on YouTube. Jump scares, friendly communication and talented people artfully playing instruments, it was all over the place, but it wont be remembered for that.

Posted in: Cannabis-derived gummies probed after 9 fall ill in Tokyo See in context

HHCH and regular THC gummies are potent. 1st timers are usually directed to just eat half of the gummy or less. Eating one whole, you get the nausea, sick feeling. Pretty sure they ate the whole thing in one go, its a very common (in the US anyways) beginner's lesson learned.

Good for winter too, under a beanie to keep your ears warm.

Side note: Always amazed me how on TV/Movies/Commercials, Japanese people sleep flat on their back, arms at thier side like a cyborg recharging it's batteries.

Posted in: Knife-wielding man shot by police after Osaka apartment quarrel See in context

There is no such thing as a “Warning Shot”

Very true, the Escalation of Force and Rules of Engagement prohibit warning shots for US law enforcement and the US Military, but who knows for Japanese Police? Maybe it's allowed for them?

The first bullet in a police officer's gun is a blank 

I truly hope this is a joke or troll comment.

Same thing happened to one of my Sailors in Yokosuka! He was drinking at a friends house, townhome style off base. went out for a smoke late at night, walked back into the wrong house and fell asleep on the couch. The Japanese family woke him up in the morning rightfully pissed off. Honest drunken mistake, funny but serious too.

He was deservedly punished, as will this new incident.

the sperm donor may be asked to legally accept recognition as the child's father.

I see a good movie, dark comedy: "Surprise Dad" And of course, he is not ready for the responsibility, but a heartwarming pregnant woman will turn him around. Coming this Spring. PUN INTENDED.

Posted in: Japan to OK train fare hikes for holidays, weekends due to 'overtourism' concerns See in context

The last 4 paragraphs say it all. Small, trivial and isolated incidents portraying a problem where there is not really a big issue other than a Japanese person saw a tourist do something.

Don't forget to add "And they touch the Sakura flowers in the spring, with their dirty hands"

I used my iPhone 4 for 7 years and got clowned on every time I took it out of my pocket. "oooh, its so small", "oohh, look at that small screen".

People are realizing you don't need to upgrade every year.

And apple has already been busted for built in planned obsolescence in speed/battery issues, we are not buying it anymore, can't afford it either.

Accidents like this seem to always happen during Golden Week, overconfident father tries to cross river in family car, or in this case cross the ocean. Poor kids.

Sad news and a burden for the teenager to deal with, and another unemployed man with a knife story, 3rd one this week. What is the fascination with stating these men are unemployed? Does it add an understandable grit to the situation?

Posted in: Man arrested for attempted murder of friend at bar in Sapporo See in context

"unemployed man", Does this add to his deviousness? Is he morally lower than someone employed? His lack of employment was a deciding factor in his actions?

Surely employed people don't knife others. It's unthinkable.

This has no connection resulting from the recent delinquents that licked and touched sushi on the conveyor and put it back? Just a coincidence, right. We all order form the tablets anyways, seldom grabbing off the conveyor, just don't take the little shinkansen delivery away!
