Of course, Japan has so much extra cash laying around in the budget. Why not spend it on more frivolity?

Posted in: LDP lawmaker to quit party over alleged abuse of secretary See in context

Saw this on the news last night. She's a bit of a psycho!

She blamed the guy for ruining her image but she has done a fine job of that herself.

She also threatened physical violence against the man's daughter. I hope she gets busted but I suspect she won't.

Posted in: Teacher apologizes after making LGBT comment to scold student in class See in context

Actually, you obviously missed the whole point: a teacher abused his power and stooped to insulting an entire group of people, directing it at a child.

Nonsense. The teacher was playing with one of his students. Another student took offense.

There wasn't anyone else

Apparently, we're supposed to refer to them in the plural. Just trying to be PC. ;-)

Posted in: Abused children find Japan’s shelters provide little comfort See in context

Sounds like an absolute nightmare. For a child to want to return to an abusive home instead of staying in a so-called shelter is rather telling.

Posted in: Teacher apologizes after making LGBT comment to scold student in class See in context

If, in this day and age, it is OK to be LGBT, the child who was offended should feel happy that there was another person in "their" group, not offended.

But see, that's the whole point: to play the victim. And so "they" were 'offended'.

This frustrates the author!? Poor guy. Life must be really hard! Why not just accept what it is and leave it at that? It's not difficult.

Posted in: Half of students find primary school English education less than useful: survey See in context

Half of first-year junior high school students found their English education in elementary school less than useful.

And the other half weren't bright enough to come to the same conclusion.

The only way to effectively stop a drone attack is using a device designed to interrupt the signal between the drone and its controlller.

No panicking happening there...

Anyway, it's nice to have a (mostly) happy ending to such a disaster.

Raise minimum wage will give a temporary feeling of relief. It has never been a solution.

Great news! Hopefully, they'll make the requirements easy for foreigners to understand as m sure many of the bnb's currently in operation are run by foreigners - some of which have limited Japanese ability.

At least he fell asleep while applying the brake. Better that than the accelerator!

@seredipitous1 - yes, he is admitting guilt. Whether or not it is a punishable offense is another matter.

@therougou - not enough info but they may have been incapacitated by smoke, and by the time the father realized he was the only one out, it was too late to revive, or even retrieve them.

In any case, very sad.

Posted in: Single mothers by choice fight stigma, seek to change perceptions See in context


I don't think anyone is suggesting to deny single-parent families the kind of support that two parent families receive. The fact is that single women who choose to have a child are going to be a bigger burden because they cannot provide for their family as well as two parents can. The support provided to a two parent family will not be enough for a single parent family.

Agree with Jeff. Better yet, if they planned the heist out, why not plan to leave he same day? Surely you think out how to get away with the crime when planning!!

Posted in: Tokyo Olympics to cost twice initial estimate: Why? See in context

Much of the increase, though, was for non-construction costs.

This is the most disturbing part. An undefined increase that is NOT for the most obvious cost - that of construction.

How about Tokyo alone shoulder the costs of the Olympics? No one else is going to benefit anyway.

Seriously tho, I don't think we have to worry about our phone calls being under surveillance. Nobody in the Japanese government can understand English worth a darn...
