Great world we live in. All a woman needs to do is make an allegation and the guy is supposed to lose everything BEFORE a trial.

Yes, please keep your eyes glued to your phones so when I am walking with my Starbucks hot coffee and you refuse to move your eyes to the outside world rather than your camera app to admire yourself, I can accidentally spill hot dark coffee all over you and your rented kimono.

If you didn't wear black at the event, you were essentially bullied and harassed in person and online. Love the way liberals treat their own. Not to mention, it's fine for liberal Hollywood to bash Trump as unfit for anything, but then their own kind runs rampant all over town demanding sex as payment for roles and other detestable acts.

Perhaps Japanese need to learn a bit about situation awareness. They tend to walk around with their head in the clouds or eyes buried in a smartphone, book, etc while walking.

Japan always has the best solutions for everything. You need a way to serve beverages and provide bus information to customers. The obvious solution is to buy a ¥1,000,000+ robot which can only do 1-2 things, versus buying a storage unit for the water where people are free to help themselves to it and a table with bus times, both of which allow more than 1 person to get what they need at once, rather than now having to form a line for the robot's services.

Posted in: N Korea to send team to Winter Games; South to consider easing bans after talks See in context

This will prove fruitless as always. North Korea is essentially just a giant brat who thrives off of attention. They will act out in order to gain worldly attention, then they'll calm down a bit, try to act cute and cuddly in order to have some "meaningful talks" and then decide next week to test another atomic bomb or missile, blame the US for it, and call South Korea puppets of their Imperial Master - and all will go back to the usual.

Lay out for them in these talks a clear red line - if you do this, this and this again, we are done with you, the sanctions can keep building until you wither away into dust - or follow these sensible guidelines like the rest of the civilized world, and you can once again join the global community.

Posted in: Top Hollywood women launch anti-harassment plan See in context

Yes, I have proof. Watch the news. Read the stories. Most of the women accusers have nothing more than a statement. They went to so-and-so house, apartment, room, etc to hang out, screen a movie, talk, etc and were asked for a massage, sex, touching, what have you.

No police report. No reporting at all. Years after the supposed “fact.” And then the guys are suspended, fired, step down, shunned, let go, etc. And no charges filed, either.

Therefore, nobody seems to care about proof. Just making an accusation and dismissing innocent until proven guilty is thrown out the window.

What would happen now if a bunch of male actors stepped forward and accused famous female producers, actresses, agents and studio mgmt that they were sexually harassed by females? Nothing.

In almost all the accusations, the situations which led up to the supposed assaults were shady and questionable for the women to even go forward. Let’s go watch a movie screening in your bedroom alone. Yes, sounds legit.

This is how most "famous" Japanese women describe their significant other when he's not from their world/industry. Utada gave a similar description to her "loser" husband. Though in this case, it's more comical when a women who's a professional pole polisher takes this type of tone about her husband. Sorry but the 5 year porn rule doesn't erase the number of banana creme pies she's willingly accepted.

Posted in: Man arrested for attempting to kill girl contemplating suicide See in context

I didn't say this was a Japanese only thing. It's a Japanese article on a Japanese site written about two Japanese people. And the fact of the matter is that way too many Japanese people here in Japan are just in dire need of attention. If they were not, then they would go find a tree in Aokigahara and get it over with quietly - not post on Twitter or other social media that they want to die, look for someone to help them, etc. It's all just a cry for attention - same as jumping in front of a train (inconveniencing all the passengers, traumatizing the conductor, often time costing their family money for the service disruption/damage, etc).

I would be saying the exact same thing is this were a EU website with an EU article talking about idiots in the EU doing the same thing.

As far as what I know about suicide - I know that people who talk about it are looking for attention, not the end. And anyone who requires the service of a 2nd party to help is obviously too dumb or lazy to do it themselves.

Compared to "teaching" English, there's nothing wrong with delivery newspapers. But being he's a native Japanese, he obviously didn't prize education or inherit much brains from his family is that as high as he can reach at 28 years old. Sounds more like he sound have been the one seeking someone to assist in his suicide.

Make sure when you file complaints you actually have proof. Most of the women making tweets and public statements for things that supposedly happened years ago have not produced one shred of proof to cooberate their accusations. Now everything is over-sensitized in that if a woman just points her finger and says "he harassed/assaulted me" the guy is instantly suspended or branded a rapist/d-bag, and the woman automatically is just assumed to be the righteous honest victim.

J People - always in need of attention. If you want to truly kill yourself, you don't need to post it on social media. Just do it and get it over with.

As for the d-bags here scouring social media looking for those who want to end their lives, you're no Dr. Kovorkian. Go get a real job - delivering newspapers hardly qualifies.

The line-up is going to depend on who has current avails on those dates, what the promoters are willing to pay on guarantees, what's popular and going to drive ticket sales. All these factors vary year to year, based on who's hot/not, artists touring behind an album, etc.

Posted in: American blogger makes more extensive apology for suicide video See in context

Go check the Japan Times website now. There is a story there about Aokigahara where the author talks about wandering around and coming upon a dead body. And there is a photo amongst 6 in the story on the dead body without a blurred face. So it's ok for the author to post it under the guise of journalism, but it's not ok for LP to post the video and blur the face. Bit of a double standard.

One man’s moron is another man’s king.

Go search YouTube for Aokigahara and see how many foreigners (as well as Japanese) make videos of themselves wandering around that forest looking for makeshift shrines, signs of people who have been there contemplating suicide, etc.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but everyone knows Aokigahara = suicide. And that’s the draw of the place for foreigners. If they simply wanted to be out in nature or a wooded area, there are other locales they could go.

So either close it to the public, fence it off entirely, have roaming armed patrols to keep all people out - or just deal with the fact that lots of Japanese go there to end their life and lots of visitors go there to see signs of those people being there (and a certain number go there in hopes of seeing a dead body).

And yes, if there was such a forest in the US, you would equally get the same amount of foot traffic there with the same pathetic intentions. And it’s not an American phenomenon, nor Caucasian one. Lots of people are fascinated by this kinda stuff. However dumb they may be.
