Actually there is one celebrity on one of those DIY variety shows who gives advice on how to organize your house using ¥100 shop merchandise. She is far more interesting.

Posted in: Convenience stores to stop selling adult magazines by end of August See in context

Ministop, which runs some 2,000 stores in Japan, has already shut out adult magazines, introducing the ban in late 2017.

Man, I was just at Ministop last week making copies next to the magazine rack and there were quite a few of these magazines still selling there. It was hard not to notice with half of the cover showing 2 large.....eyes.

Waking up at 5am was well worth it for Rams to win this game. My parents are season ticket holders and got entered into a contest to go to ATL to see the game there. Chances are slim though. I hope Rams victimize the Patriots like the Eagles did last year.

How about schools offer self-defense classes as part of the P.E. curriculum?

Posted in: Here’s what Japanese people really think about Marie Kondo See in context

Her methods should only really apply to hoarders. The majority of Japanese people, regardless of how much they minimize, are still going to have crap everywhere in their small Japanese house.

I watched the first episode and all I saw was a beautiful home with a few clothes lying in the closet and some boxes in the garage. Hoarding is a whole other level.

Overall, the show was pretty boring. If I wanted to watch a house cleaning show, I would watch Queer Eye. It is much more entertaining and funny at that.

Posted in: Osaka subway drivers win court case over right to grow beards See in context

But my question is, with a beard they just call you that, but without it they treat you like any other father. So besides calling you "ojisan" when you have the beard, how else do they treat you differently?

Actually with the beard I get the ojisan name-calling and kids trying to punch me or grab onto my legs. When I shave, all I hear are hellos. In baseball here, many of the foreign players sport beards. Adults here will say I look like many different ball players even though they look totally different and I am not even in the same height or weight class as them.

Japan will soon make it against the law to feed the birds/stray animals to prevent this from happening again

It is already a given not to feed stray cats to avoid the wrath from neighbors.

I wear my beard with pride and laziness. Only bad thing is going to my kids' Kindergarten and kids call me ojisan. Shave the beard, I am treated like any other father.

Japan lost them in the war. Let it go.

Ha! Tell that to the many upon many countries that lost territory and livelihood to Russia during the war yet gained them back.

Posted in: Traffic ticket against monk driving in robe stirs online protests See in context

Do police make up their own laws or enforce them?

Never will forget years back when a cop car stopped my car for driving with a license plate of a neighboring prefecture. Then, even though I was speaking Japanese fine with them, they got an English speaker on the phone to tell me they were going to search my car. When police are bored, anyone is fair game.

Actually I just saw the news last night that ATL shut down one of their terminal due to being undermanned because of the government shutdown. It isn't like the U.S. is lenient or anything, people are arrested a lot for trying to carry handguns on the plane. Atlanta seems to get a lot of news of people doing so.

Posted in: Lady Gaga says she won't work again with singer R.Kelly See in context

I will never forget a concert I went to in Anaheim back in 1994. It featured Coolio, Warren G, Heavy D and R. Kelly was the closing act. R. Kelly had 3 curtain calls during the concert and there was a point where lights went on, everyone was leaving and he called everyone back because he had more songs to unveil to us. At that point, I found him to be extremely passionate about his music.

Since then, his music has been good even though half of his songs seem to be about sex. Now though, I think twice when I listen to R. Kelly because of constant accusations of pedophilia and owning sex slaves. Any songs about sex from him bring on a whole new meaning.

It is all good. She will go down as one of the best female wrestlers in Olympic history. Best of luck to her in the future and look forward to seeing more Alsok commercials.

I remembered seeing on TV Bobby Ologun and some of his Nigerian buddies doing this but they were towards the back. By the time they enter, people just jog and the winners are already like 5-10 minutes ahead. 5000 people is a lot.

I know this sounds bit offtopic but yesterday a train jumper in Osaka, today a window jumper. That is just the two of which we heard of in the news in consecutive days

I heard suicides happen a lot after vacation periods.

Posted in: Japanese school bans non-white masks for students See in context

Its become more fashion now than what it was initially thought of as a deterrent.

A lot of mothers at my kids' kindergarten wear them I notice as a substitute for the make-up they didn't have time to put on in the morning.

Reminded me of concerts I have been to. The main act was late so we were forced to watch the warm-up acts. Then it turned out that the warm-up acts were better than the main act.

You think this is an issue while as we speak many people in Japan are parking in handicapped parking spots that aren't handicapped.

Oh, good grief! How gullible are these people? Scammers are the lowest form of life on earth, but it seems there are many Japanese who make it very easy for them.

This is not just a Japan thing just because this is your only source for news. Scams of all sorts against older people are happening Worldwide. My grandmother lives in a retirement community in the U.S. and there are many upon many people being swindled for cash even though they have good support services in the community to try and prevent fraud.
