Posted in: Texas Rangers introduce prized import Darvish See in context

Darvish knows he’ll have to adapt off the field as well, and said he’d work at becoming more “Americanized.”

That is something I have never heard from a Japanese player coming to the states.

Is anyone else sick and tired of the mayors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki using the rememberence days of atomic bombings as a soap box to promote changing the county's domestic and international policies?

Of all the problems that plague JAL, this is the problem they address? Reminds me of Kerr's Dogs and Demons.

Wow, surprising and inspiring. If only every country in the world had such a demand for justice in a crime committed against a person from another country.

Posted in: Tokyo declares bid for 2020 Summer Olympics See in context

Did they not get the memo that because South Korea got the Winter Olympics that it will hurt Tokyo's chances, not to mention the committee will remember Ishihara's comments about 2016 decision, so I would put money on that Tokyo's chances of getting the games are worse than a snowball's chance in hell.

In Japan, students passing out from heat exhaustion happens at every school every summer and nothing is ever done to prevent it from happening again and yet they are shocked when it does.

Posted in: Man held over murder of younger brother in Kyoto See in context

There should be a law in Japan where kids got to move out of their parents house once they're older then 21.

No way that would happen, its too much a part of Japanese culture and plus have you seen the economy.

Posted in: Tokyo bar busted for hiring earthquake victims as prostitutes See in context

This was bound to happen, a bunch of people with nothing looking for a quick and easy way to make money. I just think about all that money that was donated for relief that isn't reaching the people that need it.

Posted in: Sony faces another hack attack See in context

This just shows that Sony doesn't put much stock into information securities, Microsoft and such have 100s which only focus on that. To the hackers this is sport but 10,000 attempts tell me that this could be some rookie trying to gain cred, which seems absurd since why would you risk it for such a paltry sum of money, surely there are richer targets out there. The question I have is, does Japan even have laws against hacking? In the states its only a felony if you use the information obtained for another illegal act such as id theft, extortion, and so on.

So she made money by being portrayed as the "poverty idol" but didn't do anything to help those less fortunate, which are in great supply recently. While I with Mittsu that the facts don't really add up to suicide, This is Japan, Suicide without a clear reason isn't rare.

I blame the parents for this one, there is no way this could have happened if they just kept an eye on their 8 year old.

U.S. broke international law...haha that's a good one, who are you going to get to tell the U.S. they can't do whatever the hell they want to do. Al-Qaeda, we just killed your leader, I recommend calling it quits cause you know what will happen to you if you try anything.

If you get beat up by a cross-dresser, you might as well turn your man-card in to the nearest authorities. Alphaape, i have to agree, that was a very revealing comment there.

Posted in: Bin Laden's death provides fodder for U.S. TV late-night hosts See in context

better than listening to jokes about the royal wedding. Fadamor, actually it turns out now that he was unarmed, now i am sure we could have arrested him, put him on trial and it would have been a circus, americans all over the world could have been kidnapped and threatened with execution until they release bin Laden. he got the death he deserved and honestly wish I could have pulled the trigger myself.

Posted in: Sony says 25 million more accounts hacked See in context

get ready for an even deeper bow from Sony's prez, maybe it will cause him to slam his head against the desk so something decent might come out, like you know, taking the gobs of money you take in every day and investing it into a security system.
