I agree with the above comment. Once you live in Chiba, it’s hard to imagine living anywhere else.

China and Korea, having fought wars and naval skirmishes with Japan during the Middle Ages, will most definitely incorporate anti-Japanese sentiment into their educational system.

Other Asian nations that were colonized or annexed by Japan don’t have that issue, so are generally favorable toward Japan.

Blame Nixon, who thought by pandering to China, he could keep the USSR at bay. Almost overnight, Taiwan lost its diplomatic status with half of the UN, and Japan sadly severed diplomatic ties with Taiwan a year later.

Ahhh... the Auto Salon. So much better than the Tokyo Motor Show which just showcases concept cars that you can’t have.

The Auto Salon showcases crazy modded cars that you can’t have.

And the amount of fabric on the girls seems to diminish in surface area every year.

If they were on high alert (permission to fire without authorization from high command), an operator with a twitchy finger could very easily mistake a taking off aircraft that would “suddenly appear” in its screen for a US stealth bomber preparing to drop its payload.

Stealth bombers are only visible on FC radar during the brief period when they open the bomb bays. With a limited time to acquire target, an eager operator would most likely take that shot, and under the circumstances it would only have to be authorized by the commander present, rather than go all the way to the top.

Yes, apparently marijuana can turn people into psychotic killers.

Not healthy individuals, but some studies show that marijuana use may exacerbate existing conditions like paranoid schizophrenia. Although this individual “only” had narcissistic personality disorder. He mentioned in an interview with a journalist that marijuana made him lethargic and reduced his desire to carry out his “mission.” So he only used it occasionally. So in this case, marijuana use could have actually prevented this crime from happening.

This guy seems to be influenced by Nazi eugenics “master race” programs. In his own words; “As a representative of justice and as a superior individual I need to be physically fit and attractive. That is why I practice martial arts and had cosmetic surgery.”

His lawyers are pushing the “insane” and “under the influence of marijuana” angle, but he is denying both.

”I am not insane, I did what needed to be done to improve society and eliminate individuals who consume resources and contribute nothing.”

”I have used marijuana in the past, but it made me lethargic and inactive. I can confirm that my use of Marijuana has nothing to do with my actions.”

He is a criminal so why does he look like he has just walked out of a Shibuya hair salon ?!

That photo is from the time of arrest. According to court sketches, he currently has shoulder length black hair and plastic frame glasses.

The assault weapons act actually created the NRA as we know today.

The NRA was originally supportive of gun control and their activities mostly consisted of teaching and qualifying marksmanship to the Boy Scouts and giving the “assume all weapons are loaded, don’t touch, call an adult” class at schools.

Holy moly! The town is called White Settlement? wow!

There are a lot of towns with unusual names. Boogertown, NC; Knockemstiff, OH; Fartsville and Poopsdale, MO...

Perhaps the founder of the town was named White, like.... Barry White?

There is also bowl of cheap Japanese snacks, which are Maezawa’s favorites, on one of the tables. The video company captioned it as “Feels out-of-place”. It certainly does.

Rich people eat junk food too. Just ask the guests at Trump’s BigMac dinner party.

When I was a kid, out of pure boredom, we did some pretty stupid games with stupider penalties for the loser. It’s sad that this one had to end tragically, but it could happen to anyone growing up in a boring town.

Yes, that much is true.

However, later footage shows her walking through the lobby normally. Which is one of the discrepancies Yamaguchi’s attorney pointed out. I’m not taking sides on this issue, as we don’t know yet the definitive truth. However, the circumstances involving the situation are sketchy at best. Especially the fact that Yamaguchi was considering passing his position in the Washington office to Ito.

Is this an OJ Simpson situation ---- not guilty, but guilty? I thought he had been cleared in the case.

Because the criminal case was dismissed for lack of evidence and contradictions in Ito’s testimony, but Ito won the civil damages suit.

This entire incident is shady from all sides. In the red corner you have an elite-class journalist with powerful friends. In the blue corner, a young aspiring journalist.

He says:

She had quite a lot to drink, six glasses or more of Sake; as I was told later by the sushi chef, and she was in no condition to walk home alone. I took her to my hotel room where she vomited several times and fell asleep on the bed, while I slept on the couch. After a few hours, I was awoken by the sound of her taking a shower and when she returned she seemed to be sober, we then engaged in sexual intercourse.

She says:

I was inebriated to point of being unable to walk, and do not remember anything from after the sushi restaurant. When I regained consciousness Yamaguchi was forcing himself on me, and I was unable to resist. I awoke later in the morning to sharp pain all over my body.

CCD from the hotel lobby says:

She walked through the hotel lobby with Yamaguchi, in high heels and unaided.

Although public interest in rugby may fade in the same way it does a few weeks after the latest Star Wars release, Japan does have a fairly well established rugby base in university and corporate leagues. It’s up to them now to take the opportunity to expand the sport.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that company wanted menstrating women to wear badges at work.

It was suggested by a senior female staff member as part of a larger awareness campaign, and the female workers were mostly positive about it.

The creators are treating it like they are talking to a bunch of elementary school children not adults!

During every US war since WW1, troops were taught the importance of information security, STD prevention, weapon and vehicle maintenance, marksmanship, etc, by... you guessed it, comics featuring “Buxom Betty.”

Posted in: Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who wants to amend part of Article 9 of Japan’s Constitution, argues that the Constitution was created during the U.S. occupation after World War II, and that some parts of it do not fit into the realities of the modern world. Do you agree with that view? See in context

3 generations of ultra leftist social conditioning will not change into “Pre-war glory days” overnight, or even over several decades because of the revision of a single paragraph.

The pacifistic nature of Japan’s constitution is so embedded into society and law, that according to laws regarding “excessive self-defense,” you may even be arrested for assault for injuring an assailant who attacks you first.

The amount of forgotten firearms and drugs we found in the Johns was enough to start a small gang.
