This clearly comes from people who have very little knowledge of gambling addiction. It's not like been an heroin addicted where you physically need heroin every day. You could be a gambling addicted and go to Casino just 3/4 times a month. At the same time you could go 20 times a month and be a perfectly fine person. It's a lot more complicated than just the number of time you visit a Casino.

One day while out in the Japanese countryside, I said to her "one day, thousands of foriegners will come to Japan, and thousands will live here"
Why would you say something like that to your girlfriend?? Seriously, what's your issue?

@DaDude, i'm surprised to read so many comments about restrictions in high schools, something i was not aware of. I'm 35 so my high school time was in the late 90s. My school literally had no restriction at all. I remember classmates with blue, pink... hairs. No dress code either. Almost 20 years on now and some of the "craziest" people are the ones who made the most successful career. I'm Italian btw.

As I am not an expert on this topic, can people here please tell me the dress code and hair code of their high school?
You mean in Japan or other countries as well?

Aly Rustom, what you are saying it's not technically wrong, but have you been in Europe recently? The sentiment towards this Union it's at the lowest level ever. Now, if the UK leave and manage to stay in the free market.... i can tell you 4/5 members who are not going to be happy at all. Some big names among them. It could easily be the end of the EU. So in my opinion the EU will try to punish UK as hard as possible.

So just why did they go to the UK in the first place, rather than France or Germany ?
I think they went there ages ago. Like in the 80s... The EU, as we know today, didn't even exist back then.

Due to an illness, Akie was left paralyzed on one side of her body, had a speech impediment, and was bedridden.
My grandmother was the same the last couple of years of her life. Always been a very independent woman, she was suffering so much not been able to move, to cook herself... She couldn't speak very well anymore but asked me few time to help her die. I couldn't help but totally understood how she was feeling.

Logic behind this is just marketing. They ended up on JT and probably some other newspaper with name and full address of the place. Free advertisment. I'd say mission accomplished

I wonder who will use this train on a regular basis and how much a ticket will cost. 40 minutes it's quite impressive, one could live in Nagoya and work in Tokyo. Still... i find the Shinkansen already quite expensive, can't imagine how much a ticket will cost on this.

Canada's Parliament allows MPs to bring babies with them. So does Australia's, Iceland's, the EU parliament, etc etc.
They shouldn't. It's work, they have to be focused on work. Of course unforeseen events can happen, and rules can be flexible, but shouldn't make a habit of it. This just confirm how these politicians live on a different planet compare to regular people.

On the whole you do not see people bringing babies into the workplace, but perhaps you should ask why not.
If the workplace is just an extension of society, why shouldn't a mother bring her baby to work? I believe that mother's should bring babies to work.
Would you be ok if a school teacher, with 1 hour class, spend 30 minutes trying to calm down her son instead of teaching? Do you think a surgeon should be allowed to take her kid to work? What about a train driver? And another 1000 examples.
I think it would be just total chaos.

I was in Okinawa last May and they didn't give me the sticker. I didn't get it in Sapporo either but that was few years ago, so maybe it didn't exist at the time. I have Japanese driving licence. Perhaps this is for foreigners renting with International driving licence? Would make sense to be honest, don't think anything's wrong with it.

@ bjohnson23 I'm not sure about Tokyo but I would imagine is the same. In Nagoya all information about shelters, safety areas, procedures, maps etc... are available in several languages. Here's the english version

Well i'm not a big expert so i could be wrong. But looking at a map, Tokyo's situation is a lot different from Fukushima's. That was open ocean, Tokyo is just a bay with Chiba in front. Think it's unlikely to see a 20m tsunami in Tokyo. Chiba prefecture though...

It doesn't include a PS4. But others don't include a pc either. And you need a good one to enjoy VR. For the price of the HTC you can buy both playstation and the headset. So i agree it's relatively cheap. I've never tried Oculus or HTC but i bought PS VR 2 month ago. Quite impressed. It's not perfect obviously but i can see a lot of potential in it. Think it was a smart move from Sony.

10.901 applied. Doesn't mean they are automatically refugees.

28 people were granted refugee status. And 28 were admitted into Japan. So yes, 100% of refugees have been admitted in Japan. Regarding the others... you know for sure they were genuine refugees? i honestly don't know. In my country, just last year, about 200.000 african immigrant came. 85% of them didn't get any refugee status, they were simply economic migrants.
0 ( +3 / -3 )
The big problem in Europe is that most of people arriving are not real refugees. They are economic migrants from north and central africa. Young, single male between 20 and 35. Put 10.000 of them in a city and a disaster will happen, like in Cologne.
