I still remember MU Japan 2006. Beautiful, smart, confident and charismatic. She was very popular to the crowd too. Miss Mori seems only tall to me.

Sorry, "soreleftarm", but I gotta call your bluff on this one. Japanese news articles make no mention of a foreigner being involved and, let's face it, they would have had it been the case. This is Japan we're talking about, after all.

The media has no reason to make a biased coverage. The article seems to recognize that he is the victim of this particular incident, so whether "soreleftarm" is a foreign national or not is not that relevant to the story. The people here are not that biased as some people might make it out to be.

Secondly, were you as traumatized by the event as you claim to be, I imagine it wouldn't have occurred to you to sign up to JT with a witty handle specifically for this purpose.

I think he just wanted to share his experience with the foreign residents in Japan.

Finally, if you were being attacked by an enraged Japanese man, how is it that you kept an almost perfectly detailed timeline of the events, down to the exact minute?

When a person is involved in some sort of a crime, the police will usually ask you to write a deposition of the event in a timeline. He probably just pasted what he wrote in his original statement.

I pretty much agree about your next comments on public nuisance tho.

Zenny - The Kick-Ass movie seems really good watching the trailer. I will definitely want to go see :)

Not too much of a follower but I've heard that all of their costumes are designed by students studying at Kyoto University of arts and design where the AKB music producer himself works as a teacher.

If I had to ride rush hour trains, I'd need a pair of expensive noise canceling headphones in addition to earplugs, and maybe even a gas mask to breath clean air just to maintain my sanity!

Lunchbox - OK, but I'll still say an earthquake news without the intensity levels measured in the immediately affected area is still crude reporting by AP if not useless.

Alright alright thanks for looking up the Internet for me everyone. At least I didn't pretend to know it from beforehand and still calling it epic center like Zenny.

Today's quake was 3 and the big Kobe quake in 1995 was 7.2 in JMA magnitude so I find it rather misleading that the AP news is reporting today's minor quake as 6.9-magnitude.

BurakuminDes - I think the distribution companies are the ones deciding all the release dates based on other movie showings, popularity, holidays etc.

Ya would've been two thumbs up if that was the case. The bosozokus deserves all the death traps in the world.

Where are you getting your information from? Yomiuri Newspaper says the scooter rider was a 24-year-old female office worker on her way back home. She suffered fractured scull despite wearing a helmet.

TheBigRiceBowl - A bicycle is a vehicle by law and in general needs to be ridden on the motorway. If you need to use the sidewalk you have to ride slowly because the pedestrian has the right of way.

Yes, I think Frungy made really good points but KevininHawaii stated it well without being hateful like some of the other posters.

I think speaking on a cell phone in a crowded place is considered a nuisance by many because the surrounding people can only hear one side of the conversation. The speech becomes incomprehensible and becomes pure noise. It's like having to listen to a loud foreign language you don't understand.

Imperial mobster dad was so adamant bout surrendering, he kept ordering his own sons and daughters each with a hand grenade to fight for a trouble he himself created. Throwing in few dynamites through the window and killing everyone in the family mob-war style may not have been the most chivalric way for the police but it was the only way bring four year siege to an end.

I find it ill-defined that the modern JSDF is using an ensign that has such a strong image of imperialism. Black vans and bosozoku motorbikes swirl them around as well. Not a very positive image.

Posted in: In Japan, the customer is not king See in context

A Starbucks store is less than a minute walk away from both McDonald's in Fussa and Kotesashi. And asking for a larger cup at McD only costs 20 yen more. There was an article about "unrelenting complainers" here on JT and this author perfectly fits the profile of such customer. What a whiner.

Bear habitats are being destroyed and their food sources are being taken away. And they are killed off as pests if they show up on human settlements.

Posted in: 'Star Wars' films to be rereleased in 3D See in context

There are two kinds of 3D movies you don't want to confuse. There is a real 3D movie uses 2 stereo cameras to from the get go like "Avatar" and then there is also the fake computer manipulated 3D movie that merely positions paper thin cutout 2D character placed on different layers just to advertise the movie as being 3D. Watch out.

I think all seats are upright boards to achieve quadruple passenger capacity, and you pay separately for all the in-flight meals drinks and restroom use.
