Posted in: Yen set for turnaround in 2023 after slide to 32-year low against dollar See in context

The yen rate will be around 200 yen by 2024. Wait for it. It's always interesting to see how they use the media to try to influence the market.

It's like using your finger to plug a hole in a dam. The US dollar exchange rate will hit 200 yen late next year, if not sooner. Great for tourism, but tourism has never fully helped a country's economy recover.

Posted in: Emergency drill 'assailant' on Japanese train goes viral for being too good at the job See in context

That pole the police used to hold him down was impressive. It's better than putting a foot on his neck to the point where the person can't breath. I assume they have different sizes because that one wouldn't work on a large individual. Also, the bar should be angled, so the officer can use his weight on it. None of the officers had their .38s drawn. This is "protect and serve".

It would have been nice if someone would have paid for her. I would have. Now our tax money is paying for her to go through the system.

citing an initial statement from Alkonis to police in which he said he felt drowsy after driving through mountainous curves.

Lost in translation. Never speak to Japanese police unless you are actually fluent in Japanese.

How about if they can finish their work in four days, then they can receive the same salary? If they have to take care of their elderly family members or children, it's obvious they could use the money. Basically this company is just offering unpaid day-offs to save money. The results of a bull taking a dump sums up this situation.

Demi Moore looked hardcore sexy with her shaved head in G. I. Jane. One of my favorite movies. I've seen Jada with her shaved and I thought it looked good. Jada is a tough woman. I could actually see her in a movie called G.I. Jane 2.

Posted in: Fukushima bullet train services resume 2 weeks after big quake See in context

Enough with bullet train. When you go to the train station, it is always written "Shinkansen" and never "bullet train". If you refer to sushi as raw fish on rice then go ahead and call it a bullet train.

Perhaps it was a flimsy old signboard. Perhaps it was cheaply made. Perhaps someone accidently ran their bike into it. Drunk people do the stupidest things.

Regardless of this "travesty", perhaps removing products with Putin's face on it would be a good idea. Or go all out and sell Trump Water and Putin Chocolate as a set.

How to deal with NHK.

Open the door with wide open crazy eyes. Tell them it's against your religion to have a TV because evil spirits come out of TVs. Then mumble some gibberish and close the door. They definitely won't come back.

Posted in: Japanese woman finds wallet with ¥1 mil, does right thing, then something even better See in context

I've lost my wallet twice in 25 years in Japan. Both times I had around 30,000yen in it. Someone turned the wallet in to the police, but the 30,000yen was gone. They did leave the yen coins in the wallet along with the credit cards, bank cards, and ID. I have no problem losing the cash because it's too troublesome to get those cards again.

Don't we live in a society where we pay taxes, so that we can provide aid and assistance for people in these situations? It's sad when people feel they have to bring death upon themselves and/or their loved ones.
