haha, well im black and the guys you mean are just backup dancers. i thought they were decent but they still mix in a lot of that random Engrish in their songs, just like the rest of the J-crap.

No real talent here just superb marketing.

There's a place called "unchained farms" in Souka saitama...goodness. But im not big on these overpriced japanese "gurume" burgers, there's no real Burger taste.

Maybe it's just me being a guy, but if someone the size of Bob Sapp said he was gonna rape me or kill me, i'd be one dead mofo. But a lot of the things you listed are good factors to think about. But why would he take her to HIS apartment and they live in the same building...strange.

Disillusioned. Why blame the parents?

The parents should have made it really clear that playing near the train tracks is dangerous. But you are definetly right about society.

Posted in: The McJob of Asia See in context

Im an ALT at a JHS. I make 235,000, have plenty of holidays (paid, half for summer, which is 6 weeks), use my free time to study for the JLPT 2kyu or 1kyu ( 1kyu looks quite beastly though ). I'ts a good job to have while getting yourself ready for something else, not a career choice though.

Posted in: Saitama police launch new unit to prevent groping on trains See in context

Mihoko Akiyama, an assistant inspector, said: “I hope that victims get the courage to raise their voice, instead of simply putting up with the situation.”

the fear probably comes from the fact that even if they say something to tha guy the other people on the train will "fall asleep" of "read their paper". this female officer force is the only thing that could make an impact.

but the WOMEN not the young girls that have this happen to them should learn to speak up.

Posted in: Sarah Palin accepts David Letterman's apology See in context

Use their kids? She is pro-family<

most people with families are pro-family. He's a comedian they p!$$ people off no need for speeches, and that little "thanks to our U.S. military men and women" crap is played out and half-hearted. We are fighting for everyones elses freedom and rights.

Palin should really go back to hunting with her LV rifle bag.

Posted in: Obama calls for new beginning between U.S., Muslims See in context

haha who cares, the speech was prasied, Bush couldn't string words together on his own turf, a man with charisma and purpose is a threat to America? Look where the tactics of the previous 8 years have put us.

Bush in Cairo:

"w-wwell ummmm it's good to yeah, it's good to be here today." and queue the shoe

Bush was hated around the world.

Posted in: You can learn a lot about Japanese culture from kindergarten classes See in context

Being a well trained english teacher that a kid sees maybe twice a week has nothing to do with their lack of discipline at home, if you fail to see that you have been in japan tooo long. And I came on an airplane not a boat.
