Wow, you know a country is in trouble when its media has to report on the yearly apperance of its champion hot dog eater. Way to go Japan, way to go Japan Today, keep finding those role models that the youngsters can look up to.

Pathetic, shameful. Poor, defenceless little baby. No excuses for this, no matter what all the liberal do-gooders say. Just gave our 9-m-o a big hug and kiss, and the missus.

Why don`t you class alcohol as a drug, when it clearly is?

Pump24,

Oh, yeah, TRYING drugs has completely ruined my life...pfft!!! What you wrote is complete claptrap. TRYING drugs doesnt destroy everyones life. And i seriously question your coments about alcohol, and you fail to mention the biggest killer, tobacco. The biggest cravings i ever had, from any legal or illegal substance (i`ve tried a few, outside Japan), was from tobacco. But you conveniently overlook tobacco. And surely, in your experiences you must have come across alcoholics.

Posted in: 18-year-old arrested for pushing man onto train tracks at Ogikubo station See in context

Good on the guy for sticking up for his girlfriend. He`d probably had enough of liquored up ji-ji generally bringing the tone of the place down. And anyway ji-ji assaulted his girlfriend first. And he was drunk so might have overbalanced, tripped, who knows. 18yo guy hardly deserves to be labelled a "madman"

Posted in: New graduates show lack of zeal for jobs and job-hunting See in context

The employers only have themselves to blame. Decades of exploiting their workers with enforced, unpaid overtime "for the good of the company", and sacrificing family life to conform to some bogus work ethic ideology, is to blame for this situation. Well done to those who resist the trap their fathers fell into. Why would you want to work for some of those companies anyway?

Posted in: Would you like to see Tokyo get the 2016 Olympics? If your answer is no, then why not? See in context

No way

We all know whats going to happen, right? Billions of yen wasted on monstrous, ugly facilities that will be used for 2 weeks, then forgotten. And all that money siphoned off by massive construction company executives, who just happen to be ex-public servants or government ministers, and have a compliant and persuasive media that can sway an ill-informed population to believe anything. And in the end, the people of Japan, especially Tokyo, are forced to say thank you for the few crumbs that are thrown their way. Then, 5 years down the track, back to square one, Japan`s back in recession.

Thanks so very much, Texas. Come on, lighten up, in these harsh recessionary times of uncertainty and rising unemployment, these ladies are a beacon of hope and a reminder of what is great about your country. Not to mention very easy on the eye.

Posted in: Osaka governor gets Y100 mil donation from elderly woman See in context

I`m sure the money will be put to good use in such innovative ways as junkets for local government officials to Italy, pay rises and cement to cover any remanents of greenery that still exist in the Osaka area.

Posted in: Japan considers 'cash for clunkers' stimulus See in context

This and the "shaken" system are rorts to keep the Japanese consuming cars. A fuel efficiency measure of the stimulus package? Give us a break. Keep your car maintained and roadworthy and you should get a lifetime of service out of it, a much better use of resources than chucking it out with 50,000km on the clock.

So intimidating, terrorising and robbing elderly people is "an example of Japanese ingenuity", is it? Sheer cowardice is how i`d put it.

If they dont steal to buy drugs, then why do they steal? Cant be to feed their kids cos theyre not having any!!! Must be to buy more rubbish like manga, games, keitai and go to maid cafes.

Posted in: Man beats pedestrian to death in Kanagawa; says it didn't matter who See in context

Bushlover, good point, well put.

Ultrashaman, rubbish, its far more prevalent in Japan as it is a cultural trait that has been pointed out on this site many, many times. That "oh, it happens in other societies too" response is typical of the many Japanophiles and apologists that post here who fail to recognise that other countries actually DO SOMETHING about these incidents, instead of the Japanese response of "well, just another weirdo" and toddle of to work or change the channel.

If it truly "didnt matter who" was going to cop a trashing, why didnt he go to a koban a pick a fight? Well, we all know the answer, right? Because hes a coward who thought he was tough with a few drinks in him and his mates behind him. Dare say hell be meeting our friend, Mr. Noose in the future.
