Well, the idea is to play the character, not to let the character play you!

A ghost woman passenger in a taxi was a prank shown on Japanese TV some time ago. In Japan, passengers usually sit in the back, not next to the driver. I wonder if this horror taxi theme has any link to the Japanese horror story genre, or is this just a simple money grab?

I said I was not paying and told them to stop transmitting. When she became very insistent, I asked her to send me a fine in the mail for not paying. That worked - she went away and nothing happened.

People don’t like what they see. I don’t blame them! The CCP “laws” are used to impose their ideologies on the general population of China - Big Brother, Police State.

Why are Koreans protesting to Japan about the ban that stops them from being able to sell Japanese imported technology to North Korea so they can use it for military purposes?

Two months jail is not enough! They could have gotten away with making a million dollars - better risk than drugs!!!

Posted in: 14-year-old boy who killed classmate sent to family court See in context

It’s an extreme case of underdeveloped emotional intelligence in adolescence. In other words, an inability to control one’s strong emotions and negotiate socially under pressure. Most likely the 14-year old would have gotten what he wanted and would have limited social negotiation practice. He must have been felt pushed to his emotional limits beyond his normal experience and had difficulty understanding how to resolve the situation he was in. That being said, I don’t think being a member of the table tennis team helped him much to overcome these issues.

Posted in: Medals unveiled, events held across Tokyo to mark one year to go until Olympics See in context

The design of the medals is a bit of a letdown. Looks like a cheap generic swirl and the centerpiece is too small, despite the detail of the logo design which I actually like.

He’s not doing it right! Once he has cut up the ticket, cleaned up the floor and requested a refund, he then needs to burn the money he received. :)

Posted in: Outlook uncertain for Japan's whaling industry despite commercial restart See in context

I think that the Japanese whalers want to cull whales consistently because they think the whales are depleting the amount of fish in the sea - i.e. stealing potential revenue. That may be the real reason and purpose of the whaling industry in Japan - the days of killing whales for human consumption is long gone. It is possible that there are kickbacks for quotas - just thinking aloud.

Posted in: Singer Ayumi Hamasaki criticized by fans for 'inappropriate' Instagram picture See in context

Actually the photo is very poorly composed - vast open space in the background with the art walls far away lacks removes interest and anything to pickup. That is a total amateur shot. With Ayumi on the left that’s fine but the camera man should be over on the left zooming in and having Ayumi fill up a third to a half of the left of the frame. So with such a poorly composed photo, no wonder everyone’s angry!!! Problem is, they’re taking it out on Ayumi!

Posted in: Ghosn's wife appeals to Trump for help in U.S. media interview See in context

She should go to the American Consulate in Japan. They are there to provide a minimum level of support to foreign nationals living in other countries. She has very little chance that they will become involved in defending a personal legal case.

Posted in: Labor minister opposes banning female dress codes with high heels See in context

People are dumb. Just because you don’t agree with something doesn’t mean it needs to be banned. It’s up ri the employer to decide if they want to make it compulsory or not. Then, women can choose if they agree to follow or not.

How stupid the US are - they hide the name of a ship as though it’s an embarrassment. If they gave it that name, they should put up with it, and put up with it with pride.

Posted in: Nissan to cut CEO's pay for overlooking Ghosn's alleged misconduct See in context

Rotten at the top - all of them including Ghosn. Nevertheless, it’s the blue-collar workers at Nissan who work hard to do a good job on a daily basis to support their families who have managed to produce a decent product -my Nissan Dualis is 9 years old with about 120,000k’s, and it still runs in great condition. If Nissan’s reputation has been damaged, it’s the blame of those at the top that have mismanaged themselves, not the workers who have worked hard in the company - that’s a real pity.
