Posted in: Hatoyama says Japan should embrace more migrants See in context

Men and women marry with the intention of raising a family with lots of children to be loved, cared for the glory of God.

Oh, please! You can have a functional and loving family without subjecting your kids to "God" and other forms of antiquated mythology.

Posted in: Yankees win 3-1 to tie World Series See in context

I can't stand the Yankees: the lot of them are drug users who should've been banned for life (Pettite, A-Rod, for starters). I hope that they lose, lose lose....

The lot of them? That's a big call. The entire team? You named some players "for starters." So who else? Do you have your sources?

I'm not a Yankees fan but if you think just these two guys were using and no other players on other teams, I've got a bridge to sell you.

BTW you can simplify your language and come across more coherently by just saying you want the Yankees to lose once.

A rubbish role-model that rightly shouldnt be let anywhere near his children.

johnshiomi, thanks for your story. You sound like a good Dad and I certainly hope you continue to have a relationship with your daughter despite the distance between you guys.

Is this the same Brian Runge who was involved in the chest bumping incident with Mets manager Charlie Manuel last year?

Yep and if you watched the replays of that, it was Runge who bumped into Manuel and initiated the contact. It's all about Runge when he's in the game. The best umpires are the ones you never notice.

Posted in: Tokyo's live house music scene set to go global See in context

This scene could never happen at Summer Sonic or Fuji Rock, where armies of security guards are deployed to keep fans away from musicians.

Actually at Summersonic in Osaka over the last few years I was very surprised and fortunate to see and meet a few of the performing foreign artists as they drifted through the crowd. Kasabian was one band who were really "drifting" if you know what I mean ;-) Friendly dudes all the same. Met quite an incoherent ex-Suede member too which was pretty funny.

I have been to large summer festivals in Europe and Nth America and never seen a band walking through the crowd so I would have to disagree with the author on this point.

Her rack is starting to sag which is indicative of her age. She could have worn something more flattering as she's not a total write-off at 41.

Posted in: Beer Queen showdown See in context

I've met a few Aussie girls who would consider themselves beer queens but unfortunately they might not fare too well in the lady-like drinking section of the event. That is unless being called Shazza, taking pride in how fast you can down a beer, belch and say something like, "Carn, get it into ya mate!" scores points with the judges.

Posted in: Holocaust denier begins jail term in Australia See in context

The quote was actually made by someone who believed that that is what he would have said.

That is not "paraphrasing". He actually never said anything remotely like it. It was said by someone who believed he WOULD say something like that according to his beliefs.

So Triumvere, the "original quote" is not from Voltaire or even the afore mentioned "paraphrased version." A bit of research will point you in the right direction. It's not difficult.

Posted in: Holocaust denier begins jail term in Australia See in context

To paraphrase Voltaire, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." It's a sad day when anyone is put in jail for exercising free speech.

One of the great urban myths. He didn't say that.

Toben is a completely deluded lunatic but you are right, it is a sad day when people are jailed for voicing an opinion.

Wake up Sarge! If the first she heard of his death was seeing this display (as the "shocked" expression suggests) she must have been living in a cave in inaka-ville somewhere. Somehow I don't think she has been but you can always live out whatever fantasy you might have.

Meanwhile, back in reality...

This is just racism, plain and simple.

Japanese racist? NO! I won't hear of it northlondon ;-)

Yanking your chain man. I agree. Still curious about their visa status though.

Posted in: Cleanup See in context

I always wonder what kind of visa these guys have. Wouldnt a visa swoop net a lot of these guys or are the authorities scared of approaching them?

The biggest issue I have about these guys is how they tell the locals they're American. How about a bit of pride. Who in 2009 wants to lie about being an American? Damn, most of my American friends travel the world pretending they're Canadian!

Posted in: Team Japan See in context

Ahh still the Japan haters find a reason to post! Can't remember any WS champions going across the field to congratulate the other team. Teams are usually so euphoric about winning and congratulating their team mates, that they celebrate with each other. It's not a snub against other teams. They are just caught up in the moment.

I have to agree with northlondon here. Japan won in spite of Hara not because of him. Using a guy to close out a game who usually pitches every 5 days after pitching the day before while having a proven closer in Fujikawa in the pen ready to go was inexplicable.

In the bottom of the 9th, Korea had a runner in scoring position and was just one hit away from a walk off win. I wonder what the headlines would have read if they got that hit.

The Japanese players deserve all the credit here. Hara was clueless.

Blue Tiger, you hate Japan. We get it. The best team won, move on and cheer up.

Yeah you're right Jeff198524. Those people coming to Japan for just a one-week holiday should take Japanese lessons until they are reasonably fluent before coming.

Very intelligent post.

Posted in: Japanese sailor lost off whaling ship in Antarctic See in context

something isn't right there. Maybe some spat between crew members, resulting in 'I'll see you outside' and a scuffle on deck. Over the New Year, so alcohol likely involved. If other crew members are involved, let's hope there's a proper inquiry and those responsible pay the price.

Someones been watching too many police dramas. Let's get detective Cleo on the case.

Posted in: Niigata school principal held for assaulting high school boy on train See in context

likeitis,

My Mother-in-law is an elementary school principal and was working yesterday. It depends on the city/prefecture I guess but it's not too much of a stretch given the time of year, that he was probably working, or at least supposed to be working, yesterday as well.

School principal drunk on a train at 4pm? Do the math. It's not too hard to figure out someone had been enjoying an end of year tipple while still on the clock.

Posted in: Ramirez named MVP in Japan See in context

Dont change the subject. You said foreign players were traded frequently. WRONG. Once their contract expires they are free to sign with whoever they want. They are free agents, they are NOT traded.

Your posts imply you are a newbie to the game. Im more than happy to educate you but please thank me rather than say Im "confused." Oh dear.

Oh have you found that Jeff Williams MLB save stat for me yet?

Posted in: Ramirez named MVP in Japan See in context

Northlondon, Im still waiting for an accurate post from you. Foreign players DONT get "traded around like baseball cards." Foreign players generally get signed to short-term contracts, usually just one year. At the ehd of the season they are free agents and can negotiate with any team they like. This is completely different to a trade where a player is still under contract and dealt to another team in exchange for someone or something that is considered to be of mutual benefit.
