Posted in: Barrier at popular vantage point for viewing Mount Fuji going up See in context

I see 1 foreigner in that photo, and she might be a long term resident on a day trip. Hard to judge who is foreign and who isn't. Who cares, why does it matter?

This problem is going to get so much worse in the next 10 to 20 years. Easily there will be 40 million Akiya in 30 years time because nothing is done about it. Whole towns and cities will be abandoned.

Is it legal to video indecent material in public? I guess you could say they were collecting evidence.

Posted in: Court orders ex-head of illegal manga site to pay ¥1.7 bil See in context

Aren't there plenty of legal ways to read manga for free? The library? And very cheap alternatives... Onsen, manga cafes. What about second hand book shops. People are always going to go for the easiest and cheapest option to get their media. The smart thing to do would have been to acquire the site and start offering a subscription service.

Nothing we do will fix the planet. Tell the CCP to stop building 2 new Coal plants every week, then we can talk.

His excuse tells us that he has spent some considerable time in Japan

Yes, he should be let off “with time served” :D

It gives the impression that this year is having a lot of important geological activity around in the country, hopefully this is not going remain as common.

Yea but that leads to magical thinking. Geology doesn’t care what year it is.

The whole thing is so petty. I’d rather they went after corporate corruption than opportunist petty criminals.

Seems a bit petty the whole thing. How about showing some kindness and helping the guy instead?

Posted in: Hopes fade for survivors of Japan quake; 92 dead, 242 missing See in context

A mother and daughter died, they bought her a new kimono for coming of age, and she never got to see it. I'm so sad. People should be held accountable for this. High rise buildings are not supposed to tip over.

On twitter I found that there was a mother and sister trapped in the crushed building, anyone know if they were rescued alive? The isakaya was popular, I'm so sad.

It’s just terrible. By the way that toppled building crushed a 3 storey wooden building.

To avoid the recordings being sent all at once from across the country, which risked causing a communications failure, the ministry sampled about 42,000 students at about 500 schools in the nationwide April assessment.

The problem of "server overloaded" was solved a long time ago in the Cloud. Have they not heard of AWS? LOL!

This is great for fish populations. A drop in demand will allow fish stocks to recover. PLAN fishing militia enjoy fish.

Not really worth it... it will be hot, humid, overcrowded and you'll go deaf from all those flying car concepts zooming around overhead. You'll be able to watch YouTube videos of the expo for free, and you can turn the volume down.

The banking system is so messed up, it's common to have multiple accounts to avoid bank fees. How many people have only 1 personal bank account?

Just a reminder... the problem is the CCP(PPCCCPCPPCC)... not China... nor the Chinese.

Why does the SGI continue to attract so many highly talented artists like Tine Turner?

That is nothing different from any other cult... they all do it... they deliberately entice celebrities so they can use them to attract more members.
