Posted in: What are some of your favorite examples of the way English is misused in products, advertising and pop culture in Japan? See in context

Today, a guy on the train was wearing a shirt that said "Do you know where you are? Your in Japan now baby. You're going to die!" Nothing really grammatically incorrect or misspelled but honestly, WTF is the significance of that?

The first "your".

You are =/= your

It is a variation of Axl Rose's "Welcome to the Jungle."

This should lead to an exponential increase in the number of phishing attacks.

And there may be something off about Wíkipedia.

Posted in: Should the statute of limitations for murder and other serious crimes be abolished? See in context

The statute of limitations should be abolished. Letting a murderer walk free because he was able to avoid prosecution does not benefit anyone. That the statute is so short in Japan is incredible.

I hope that he is finally extradited, and that he serves time for both the child rape and fleeing from justice. I hope that he serves years in prison.

From the court:

"[T]he defendant has been convicted of a felony sex offense involving a child under the age of 14 years...[and been] alleged to be a Mentally Disordered Sex Offender, in that you are a person who, by reason of mental defect, disease or disorder, are predisposed to the commission of sexual offenses to such a degree that you are dangerous to the health and safety of others."

From the victim, after being plied with a sedative and alcohol:

"I was mostly just on and off saying, 'No, stop.' But I wasn't fighting really because I, you know, there was no one else there and I had no place to go."

If my neighbor was shouting in front of his house in the middle of the night, I would hope that the police would take him away for disturbing the peace.

That the cat is female is obvious in a glance. All three-color cats are female, or at least have two X chromosomes.
