Posted in: My very brief fight with a yakuza See in context

Oh please. So if you saw 2 mafia goons back home having a go at each other, you'd be a Good Samaritan and step in? This wasn't two drunk salarymen having a punch-up, nor, I doubt, was it a random attack. If you want to take on the yakuza, then all the best to you, but for most people, the safest and smartest thing to do is not get personally involved.

"Mafia goons back home" and Yakuza are like comparing oranges and apples, in my opinion. In addition; I have put some of these punks in their place out of natural reflexes because they just plain went too far! You can call them Yaks, chinperas, or whatever you want, but from my 25 years + experience of living in Japan, they lack one big element that boys where I'm from grew up with....HEART! I don't know how many times I have broke a mother*%@#&% down for doing some dumb shit like the "yakuza" (if he really even was Yakuza) in the author's story did. I don't know your upbringing PS, and I realize that family comes first, but I myself have not in the past and will not ever let someone beat another to death or near death as the author witnessed. My hats off to him. So be it a yak, or whoever; they gonna no better to &%#$ around like that when I'm around. Frankly, I'm quite disappointed at all the "mind your own business" sentiment in regard to this incident! Weakness at its best!

Posted in: Men's bras getting a lot of support See in context

"There are bras for men. And men are buying them. In droves."

Men bras? Being bought in droves? Only in Japan! Although I am a pretty flexible guy, I do not get this at all. I have no problem with women wearing fundoshi, and men wearing t-back underwear, or even going cowboy, but come on, men's bras?!

Posted in: Man turns himself in after hitting woman with car in Aichi See in context

"Japanese drivers do this all he time, some are drunk,some are using mobile phones, but most just dont want to wait so tail the car infront, meaning you can be watching three or four cars going through a green man crossing."

This is true, but what never ceases to amaze me is how so many pedestrians over here just seem to turn off their peripheral vision and make their way across the street as soon as they get the green. A semi truck could be rumbling through and they wouldn't stop. Whatever happened to basic common sense!?
