Posted in: How should a guy say 'I' in Japanese? Japanese women give their opinions See in context

As a 61 year old literal graybeard, I feel uncomfortable using “boku”, I’m afraid people would think I’m trying to “act immature” to get along with younger folk, and I feel like “ore” would be too impolite in most situations. I would use “washi” but I don’t know if I’m old enough for that to be acceptable, especially if gaijin shouldn’t use it. So, the few time I say anything I just use “watashi”, since I figure anyone hearing my Japanese will think I’m a “dancing bear”: “It’s not how well the bear dances, it’s that the bear dances at all.”

Posted in: G7 leaders must not be intimidated by Trump, say Macron and Trudeau See in context

I love how Blacklabel and the other anti-Trumpers completely ignore Ray Payne's factual experience posted. In the hater's world, if they don't acknowledge it, it doesn't exist.

Posted in: 200 U.S. residents seek $1 bil in damages over Fukushima nuclear disaster See in context

200 gold-diggers wanting a free lifetime ride for "psychological damages" so they're going after the deepest pockets. Disgusting. The only people who deserve anything are the ones who can prove their radiation exposure was strong enough to cause physical harm.

Meanwhile the Sun is getting cooler and less active each sunspot cycle, but we're okay since according to the warm mongers, the Sun only supplies 1% of the global warming: http://solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov/images/Cycle22Cycle23Cycle24big.gif

Posted in: Infrared ray-controlled miniature helicopter See in context

@svidetic most likely two reasons: RF like WiFi takes more power, and IR doesn't need a license for frequency spectrum rights. It also works better indoors, where IR can bounce off walls and things (I'd hate to take this outside, I know it would get lost quickly!)

Posted in: Woman hit by bullet train at Sendai station See in context

Walking towards the train while "swaying" she could be hesitating before trying to jump, could be inebriated, could be exhausted, could be some medical condition. Sounds like they're just not sure enough to call it deliberate or accidental.

An old one for me: "Irregardless."

Posted in: 'Shirato Family' star alongside Tommy Lee Jones in Boss-SoftBank crossover commercials See in context

When I was over there in 2007, I remember (and have pictures of) the huge posters of Tommy Lee Jones glaring down at you from train stations, from Suntory vending machines, and even on the advertisements hanging down in the train cars! Kind of felt like "1984", which may have been the idea! I got to see a couple of the commercials then, too, really funny even if I didn't understand the language!
