Tessa, my 45-year-old wife has a similar body. Just because the women of some countries let themselves evolve into chunky monkeys, doesn't mean that everyone must. We can appreciate the female form in it's true glory.

Are people hired based on their looks?

Is this a joke? As if we all don't know this.

This misleading headline caused me to read an article I wouldn't have read otherwise. I was very curious about how a person in Japan could receive a sentence of "life in prison" for fraud. And thereupon I discovered this idiocy about masturbation. What a country we live in, eh!

Ditto, on the above comments. It's a shame to take an important concept and bury it in generalities. Kabukilover--your specific comments were spot on.

So kind of them to cheer up the kids.

On another note,

The battle between the buggy-eyed blue superhero and the evil sea monster and his ninja henchmen was a brief but refreshing return to normalcy for children along Japan’s northeast coast

buggy-eyed blue superhero and the evil sea monster Normalcy?

Writing on my iPad, with my iPhone playing Internet radio, my iPod Touch and MacBook Pro downstairs, all connecting seamlessly with my super Mac at work, I suppose indicates that my 18 years using Macs is still a lovely dream. I'm so happy that Apple has finally shown their vast superiority to Windows.

Posted in: TEPCO president mulls paying damages; says he won't resign See in context

For the doubters, here is a headline from the Daily Yomiuri on Sunday, April 17, 2011:

TEPCO ignored tsunami warnings for years

This newspaper is quite conservative, so if it's in this press, the situation is probably even worse.

TEPCO is criminally responsible!

apecnetworks:

For readers of JT, those who need to understand the disaster better, Klein2 has laid out a vital aspect of the situation.

This is underestimating the readers of JT, and very condescending. I think we understand all too well.

stevecpfc at 09:37 PM JST - 13th April The heads of Tepco should be facing criminal charges as soon as possible.

This is absolutely true. Anyone in a position of authority at TEPCO should be prosecuted to the maximum. Saying that they could not predict a huge tsunami is nonsense. They were warned over and over, and chose to ignore the warnings, perhaps hoping that the big one would occur after their time. Well the time has come, and you have to pay the piper. History, and the Japanese who came centuries before, has shown, in writing, in stone, that another big one would come. If you are putting nuke plants by the ocean, you have to plan for that. Otherwise, you are criminally negligent, at best.

Posted in: Morinaga starts 'summer time,' calling employees to work at 8 a.m. See in context

presto:

'The Japanese this, the Japanese that' like they're from a different planet. And 'we' have all the answers; only 'we' know what summertime is. The whole nation of Japan being so different from 'ourselves' haven't got a clue; the wisdom is ours. Of course. What arrogance.

It's a big world out there, and Japan is a tiny galapagos, yes, w/o a clue in many ways.

I love to live in Japan - this is the second of two crime stories here on April 12th! Only two crimes worth reporting on. What a safe country we have here! (No sarcasm meant. Truly grateful.)

elbudamexicano at 06:15 PM JST - 11th April All of Japan should start this new summer time, Japan has been wasting too much money, electricity for not having the change in the hours when the sun in Japan is already out at 3am??

Amen bud. So silly to have the sun rise at 5am and set at 6pm, wasting so many hours of light. This is partly due to the unfortunate situation of Japan being misplaced in time zone nine, the same zone as Korea and parts of Russia far to the west:

It's past time to sort out this ludicrous situation. According to Wikipedia:

There is a tendency to draw time zone boundaries far to the west of their meridians. Many of these locations also use daylight saving time. As a result, in the summer, solar noon in the Spanish town of Muxia occurs at 14:37 (2:37pm) by the clock. This area of Spain never experiences sunset before 18:00 (6pm) local time even in midwinter, despite its lying more than 40 degrees north of the equator. Near the summer solstice, Muxia has sunset times similar to those of Stockholm.

On the other hand, Japan's time zone, set in 1886, is far to the east of the meridian, giving us us sunsets around 4:30 in winter.

We need more sunshine.

Posted in: European airlines divert flights from Tokyo See in context

Germany’s Lufthansa airline became the first major European carrier Tuesday to announce that its daily flights to Tokyo will be diverted from Japan’s disaster zone

Talk about chicken sh!t.

This weekend, Lufthansa started to check planes returning from Tokyo for excessive levels of radiation, but none was detected.

But diverted. Who can get to Tokyo, or north, from Osaka? It's despicable!
