That shot looks like they have him in custody. Either that or they're about to take one step back each and rip him right in half.

My wife is from Hokkaido and had never heard of this. So she looked it up and found that it started in heisei 1 (1989) and this is the 21st annual. She told me that she thinks they burn the dolls instead of disposing as the article states. Anyone want to speculate as to why they might burn them as she got annoyed with my line of questioning?

Now that's taking matters into your own hands. Wonder how long it will take him to regret that action.

Eagles' music gets better with age." You have got to be old.*

Depends on your perspective of "old." I'd say if you don't know anything about the Eagles , get a education in Rock 101. Anyway, I wouldn't go see MJ if you gave me a free pair of tickets.

Very polite of the youths to reason with the salaryman, rather than just rolling and robbing him.

Posted in: WBC a big hit with TV viewers in Japan See in context

Smithinjapan- please quit saying "points" when refering to how many "runs" were scored in a game. I've read a tone of posts from you the last few days regarding the WBC and it's obvious you don't follow baseball, so why do you comment so much? Perhaps it's the same reason why you and others are compaining (again) about the lack of coverage on TV when it's been like that for many years and nothing's changed. Japan is still down 1-0 in the top of the ninth against Korea. Is the tiebreaker (if Korea wins) total runs head-to-head or sum total of the entire round(against mutual teams)? Seems that Japan would get the tiebreak if it's head-to-head and play Australia(if they can win again) instead of Cuba next round. Huge diffenrence there.

pointofview-I believe I read the Eagles GH vol 1 was the biggest seller all-time in the US, while Thriller was far and away the biggest seller ever worldwide, with nothing else even close. I personally had both on cassette tape and could care less about MJ now while the Eagles' music gets better with age.

Thenewfront- You're right, he's definitely a sicko perv. But he appears to be a hebophile or ephebophile, meaning he is attracted to post-pubescent adolescents. Technically a pedophile/paedophile is attracted to those who haven't reached puberty. And just b/c many 16yo girls in Japan look like they haven't reached puberty yet....

Checked out Sabiwabi's websites of codoh.com and vho.org. Do you have any sources for your claims that aren't propagandist crap? BTW, I made the mistake of typing in vho.com accidentally and discovered it is a video porn site. Whoops!

Posted in: Holocaust-denying bishop scuffles with reporter See in context

How embarrassing for the bishop and sabiwabi. Seriously, can we see some evidence that millions of Jewish people weren't murdered as the whole world believes (except for a few nutcases). I suppose Stalin didn't kill millions of Russians, the Japanese didn't kill hundreds of thousands of Asians and that the Rwanda genocide never occurred. I have to agree with the very sane Kinniku, whose tete-a-tete with Sabiwabi I have thoroughly enjoyed. It is most definitely up to the deniers to present some legit evidence to back up their despicable claims.

Where I come from this is common sense and courtesy. I think even if I'm in Tokyo my mom would reach out and smack me in the back of the head if I just sat there while some old or handicapped person stood beside me.

You'd think with her dough she could afford some implants. If his legs were any skinnier, they'd break. And as far as baseball talent, he never had a great amount, being good enough to bounce between triple A and a MLB bench.

Posted in: Falconry See in context

From: http://www.themodernapprentice.com/history.htm

It is known that falcons were given as presents to Chinese princes as early as 2200 BC, but these may have been for pets and not for hunting. 200 BC - Japanese records note falcons given to Chinese princes 9th century - Japanese records mark the presence of women falconers

And as cliffworks noted, it is well-noted that the Tokugawa shogunate and earlier enjoyed falconry and using birds to hunt.

Your stereotypes are great but I'm glad you have that you have that much faith in Obama to bring about all that change. But I'm afraid I'll have to disagree w/your doomsday outlook. I hardly believe that a healthcare plan to help 50 million uninsured gain some type of health coverage (note: not free), increased education breaks for the poor and more disposable income for the masses will lead to mediocrity as you believe. Your argument is old hat as the Right wingers said the same things about clinton in 1992, but none of it came true. Instead, the economy performed wonderfully(as it usually does under Democrats) and we had one hell of a surplus until Bush came to power. I find it almost ridiculous that you think the Bush administration has done anything to help anyone in this country other than himself and his rich buddies. I hope to speak you again in 4 years when, of course, none of your fantasies come true.

Wow Sarge. Glad to see you have finally gotten over your delusions about McCain winning in 2008. The greedy ole party surely can come up w/someone better than Palin by 2012, don't you think?

I think President Bush secretly admires Obama and wishes he could openly support him like Colin Powell. Who knows? Maybe he did vote for Obama just to support a winner.

I wonder what GWB was thinking when he cast his vote. He must have hated voting for McPalin with cheese after they've been dogging him this week.

This is so true. I have a pair of red boxer-briefs my wife really likes. Everytime I wear them she has to comment on my aka-panties as she calls them. I'm thinking about going all red in 2009.
