Posted in: Teeth cleaning said to help reduce risk of heart disease See in context

i dont know about that. the japanese dont go in for scaling and polishing as often as the americans in general. yet the americans suffer more heart attacks. I get my teeth scaled 4 times a year and I'lll probably die of a heart attack. but i do recommend a scaling at least twice a year, especially as you get up in age. that ojiichan/obaachan gingivitis breath is horrible. I'm never getting that. Homie just aint going out like that. i want my wife and i to be able to enjoy wet kisses til we are dead.

Posted in: Cain sex accuser goes public in New York; he denies it on late-night TV See in context

cain has no chance in the first place. dont drink the cool aid, america will never elect a black president. a half black half white president is as far as they'll go. besides, cain is not presidential, hes not handsome, he looks like mugabe and he sounds like hes from under some rock someplace. maybe little rock? then again, that may not be such a bad place, little rock. america's best president, bill clinton was from there.

1% percent christian population in japan: One the reasons I love love love living in Japan. when i first arrived in 2001 there was a .08% xtian population here. that increase is quite troubling. hope it doesnt exceed 1%.

Posted in: Vietnamese woman cuts off husband's penis See in context

is this whole penis severing thing now becoming a sport? and if so, will it be in the olympics. Why, just a month and a half ago, another asian woman severed her husband's penis and dropped it in the garbage disposal. Are we seeing a resurgence of bobeting? (As in Lorena Bobet, the American woman for whom the act is named)

today's occupy wall street protesters are tomorrow's wall street bankers and CEOs. protesters in the 60s became big bankers and CEOs in the 80s. We've all seen it before.

Posted in: Japan to offer 10,000 free trips to foreigners to boost tourism industry See in context

Japan needs to make up its mind: does it want foreigners in or out? oh wait, I just remembered japan's policy. they want foreigners, just as long as they dont decide to take up residence there. I'm in the US now, but I wonder if I could get a free ticket to return home to japan next spring. i'd write a stellar review

Posted in: TEPCO dismissed important scientific evidence in planning nuclear plant's defense See in context

TEPCO “absolutely should have known better,” said Dr Costas Synolakis, a leading American expert on tsunami modeling and an engineering professor at the University of Southern California. “Common sense,” he said, should have produced a larger predicted maximum water level at the plant.

Mr Synolakis obviously does not, or maybe has not lived in Japan. For if he had, or did, he'd know that "common sense" to the Japanese if far different from that of the West, often with dangerous consequences.

Posted in: 8 graffiti messages pleading for help against bullying found in Shiga See in context

knowing japan, they discover who she is when they find her hanging from a class room ceiling or when she jumps from a third floor window. I think every child especially girl child should know some form of martial art to protect themselves and to increase their self confidence.
