Au contraire, my best friend and my brother are both totally addicted, and it doesnt matter if it's mental or physical addiction.

Yep, totally disgusting. Is it just because it was their son? The penalty should be more than usual, as that poor guy had to watch as his own parents slowly murdered him. How excruciatingly heartbreaking and torturous that must have been! How about the death penalty, even though I don't believe in it?

Posted in: Why must Tokyo’s railways engage in aural assault? See in context

I agree with this assessment of Aural Assault - the constant screaming has turned Japan into a nation of aural addicts, and the train companies into a grinding group of enablers. It's truly disgusting. Time to grow up.

Has anyone tasted it? Does it taste as cr@ppy as the other light beers?

Posted in: Suicide in Japan See in context

"Many in Japan still view suicide as an honorable deed and a viable alternative. "

This is not such a bad thing in and of itself. However, too many of these suicidal people take innocent people with them, and if they don't they leave behind so many affected people. If, say, each suicide has left 10 people (friends, family, associates) in a very bad emotional and/or financial state, then each year there are about 350,000 people in very bad straits due to suicide in Japan, over a million citizens every three years. That obviously is a problem of devastating proportions.

The author is obviously an amateur, but does refocus our attention on such a negative drag on J-society. So, thanks for that.

The farther down the economy drops, the more pampered the decadent class become.

"Takuma7 at 05:27 AM JST - 14th January Crime is the breach of rules or laws for which some governing authority (via mechanisms such as legal systems) can ultimately prescribe a conviction. per wiki She did not follow the rules and laws by not having the kids in a car seat or wearing seatbelts. Only way people are going to learn is to enforce the laws."

There is no law broken here - it's not required by law to wear seat belts in the back seat.

Well, I've heard this myth about overstuffed overhead bins, but in all my flying days, I've never had a problem. It this a US problem?

Posted in: Japanese prisons face swelling elderly population See in context

This is the J-version of elder-care. The social support in Japan is third world. So silly - it's so easy to see that elder care in the community is much cheaper than elder care in prison. So short sighted.

Posted in: Pole dancing holds world championships See in context

"Pole dancing is a stipper's dance and to compare it with real Olympic athletics is absurd" - unfortunately this is no longer the case - from an exciting event, this has become dull and lifeless, not sexy at all. It is gymnastics now, and therefore lost it's punch.

If you live in Japan, and you've never heard of Hikaru Utada, you are isolated in a gaijin bubble, and need to take off your "bwana hat" and mingle with some "locals."

This "couples use it for privacy" fable is almost certainly an urban legend.

Au contraire, I have used these hotels with my wife, and they are great. Don't knock them till you've tried them.
