If you believe that your life should be spared after you done took someone else life, then you are delusional and sickening. Suffer and meet your fate the same way you did to the innocent people livesyou took

Well at least people will have the choice of different combinations. Plus the girls are cute, and we know that sex sells in japan.

Posted in: For those of you with children younger than, say, 7, how do you discipline them when they misbehave? How did your parents used to discipline you? See in context

When I misbehave, I would whether get a time out or whooping with the belt, switch, or at one point a extention cord. You may think it is child abuse, but it made me a great man.

Posted in: Tell us about any encounters, either good or bad, you have had with Japanese police. See in context

Most of my encounters were good. The only negative is when Japanese man kept trying to speak English to me when I was speaking Japanese to him. For some reason he had no belief that I could speak Japanese. Weird moment.

Posted in: How did your perception of Japan change after visiting the country? Or, if you haven't been here yet, what's your general image of Japan? See in context

I always thought Japan was this ultra modern country before I visited. When I finally arrived it wasn't. However, it was amazing like I expected.

I remember watching the news and being terrified about the lives that were in danger nearby. I even saw people swallowed up by the tsunami. It was very heart breaking.

Posted in: Man arrested for rape and robbery in Ibaraki See in context

@FizzBit there are no women leaders because regardless on what they do, the public will be against their opinions. Japanese women are considered and treated like sex objects not human beings. I don't agree with it, but that is just the reality.

Posted in: Is Japan a good place to raise children? See in context

I think so. I guess it depends on whether you have a good job to take care of your family. Japan seems peaceful and well mannered by the citizens there. My child will learn the importance of being a well-mannered individual.

It's almost like this happens every day in a japanese residence. Sad for the infant because the baby didn't ask to be born into this life.

Of course, using a bunch of under-aged girls is the perfect way to get people attention. And I don't care if I get negative votes on this statement either.

Posted in: What behavior by waiters in restaurants annoys you the most? See in context

Annoys me?? I guess is when the waiters tend to look at my Japanese friends when I try to give them my order, even when I am speaking Japanese. Then again, it is not much of a big deal.

Posted in: The gun control debate: Do you support the right of citizens to own and bear firearms? See in context

Yes, but it depends on how much crime is involved in certain countries. For Japan, it wouldn't be such a big deal to have a firearm because they might not have to use it at all due to the low crime rate. Still I would like the store owners to own a firearm to scare off pesky thieves from who use knives as a weapon of choice. America, on the hand, should continue to allow people to carry firearms for obvious reasons.
