Posted in: Japan had record 610,000 school bullying cases in FY2019 See in context

The main reason I will really consider putting my kids in international schools.

Unacceptable to raise my children with all the love and respect of the world just to have them bullied and pested by little devils with very low self-esteem, raised in a home without any love, hugs, proper religion or even communication. Let them bully themselves.

"We have clear policies against this type of content and will enforce on these policies regardless of anyone’s political position or party affiliation," it said.

Totally believable, just like the tons of personal info you and your friends keep begging me every single time I login, very trueworthy a-sns.

Posted in: Thailand bans protests as challenge to establishment escalates See in context

PTownsend agreed!

We still have our freedom of voice, expression and democratic rights in the West and the only way not to become Thai, NK or other truly authoritarian state is to vote wisely, preferably for leaders that vow to pave the way to:

-small government

-more individual freedom

-less interference of the state on people's lives

Don't fall for empty/broken/utopic promises that don't work (never worked) in the real world, vote wisely!

Posted in: Judo in Japan getting unwanted scrutiny for abuse, violence See in context

Just your japanese group activity here, nothing to be surprised about.

Soccer, badminton, street dance etc were supposed to be healthy activities where kids could have a little bit of fun, but as many other activities in this country, it feels more like a military camp with overwhelming rules and pressure, you don't see kids smiling and goofing around, this is a place for discipline and group bonding, and not in the fun way.

If they beat, yell nasty words at kids playing ball games, I don't want to know what happens in the karate, judo clubs in this place.

After this whole thing is gone, the every country in the World should compile a list of all its prominent citizens, artists, athletes taken from us and ask for an apology from China.

Posted in: What are 'kira kira' names and why Japanese parents choose them for their kids See in context

As a foreigner living in Japan while having to explain the story of my life and answer to the very same questions to every person I meet for the first time I would never even think of passing this curse to my children, making them go through the lifelong ordeal of explaining to every teacher, nurse, city staff etc how to "read" their own names.

planned obsolescence programmed/slowed down electronics is akin to huge plastic containers with very small food inside, it's disgraceful and such a waste of everything in process

communists are so pathetic, every single time. They deceive and brainwash their own populace to such an extent they end up thinking the whole world is also that gullible or other people from other nations are very surprised with their super tacky prop videos

Posted in: U.N. at 75 faces a deeply polarized world See in context

one side has been finally exposed, after that all hell broke loose.

one side wants unity, law, equality, ultimate freedom and peace.

one side wants power, control over people's lives, and everything has to be the way they want or else.

How you downvote/upvote this depends on which side you are and which sides you know I am talking about.

Japanese bullying and ostracism at its finest. I'm totally "square" regarding drugs but yesterday the "breaking news" anchors were already refering to this guy as if he had passed away or something, ridiculous.

Posted in: Osaka using U.S. Open as platform for activism See in context

In the body cam recordings I’ve seen, police are always seen as polite to blacks unless approaching known criminal - despite their treatment by protestors.

Exactly!!

It's surreal all this mayhem over a suspect reaching for something in his car during a police stop.

Guess people should watch more PoliceActivity vids on Youtube for a little dose of reality.

Posted in: Osaka using U.S. Open as platform for activism See in context

Last night I was driving by 3am in Setagaya when I saw a group of blacks loading debris from a demolition site into a truck, all sweating, hard working, in the middle of the night. If BLM really cared for blacks they would start working from within, teaching the virtues of hard working, good parenting, how to behave when stopped by police etc.

This never ending victimism never leads to anything, people from all races all cultures have suffered at some point in history.

Posted in: Woman arrested for killing man with cassette gas torch burner See in context

She really went medieval just because of booze. 

if she had pushed the guy “out of impulse” that out be another story, no matter how drunk/angry/out of my mind, I can’t even imagine myself doing such a premeditated evil act as dozing someone with gas and set it alight or ramming my car against someone. This person is evil. Booze is not an excuse.

Posted in: Japanese athletes give Tokyo Olympic stadium a test run See in context

All these news about the Olympics gives me more a feeling of anxiety and insecurity than of expectation and joy.

How irresponsible to postpone it for just 12 months without a single clue in hands on how the things will be next year.

Posted in: Truck driver arrested after hitting motorcycle in Osaka See in context

"driving hit a motorcycle... 77-year-old woman riding it..."

My bets are:

77 old obaachan swerving on a tiny scooter with max. speed permitted of 30km/h in Konohana ward - port side of town, with sudden gusts of wind and mostly big trucks.

My wife and I are in Australia and we have not been able to come back to Japan since January. It will be difficult to return before the end of 2020.

We want to ask about removing our household items from the apartment and concluding the rental agreement."

Posted in: Pair arrested for blasting adult video audio inside Harajuku train station toilet See in context

Watching healthy, funny pranks on YT along with tv news bloopers from all over the world is one of the things that makes me depressed sometimes... anything can happen on live tv and the casts simply laugh the incident away. Meanwhile everything in Japan is followed by a "moushiwake arimasen" and deep bows.

Posted in: Woman holding baby hit by truck on crossing; driver arrested See in context

Wonder how this woman couldn’t have seen anyone when she was turning RIGHT.

I have my own 2-ton personal truck which I drive a lot in the busiest parts of Tokyo, Chiba, Yokohama.

Whenever I’m at an intersection (and especially turning left) I make a point of stopping just before the crossing, and proceed veeeery slowly so even if there is a bicycle coming full speed (happens a lot) they will have to stop.

Actually this is the worst of driving in Japan, just too many kamikaze walkers/bikers around, everyday. Just yesterday I was entering a parking and when I was literally in the middle of the walkway this woman makes a point of coming full speed on her bike and pass inches between me and the gate. The considerate/patient japanese is a myth.

Posted in: Hiroshima survivors worry that the world will forget See in context

No one blames the US any more, but just blames all kinds of atomic bombs all over the world. 

And you know exactly why? Because they can't! There is no "villain" in this a-bomb history because they are too embarassed to point out why they were bombed, so every year they keep pitying themselves over Hiro & Nag bombings without even discussing the whys, almost as if it was some kind of tsunami-like natural disaster or something.

Posted in: Hiroshima survivors worry that the world will forget See in context

Insist Koreans to "get over it" still keep pushing this pity a-bombed Japan year in year out?

If this was an ocasion to protest what the J-gov put its citizens through out of pure greed, that would be another story..

Posted in: Japan lacking burial grounds for expanding Muslim population See in context

Maybe you should ask the Malaysians here in Japan first why they came here

definitely not for a “better life” or to get $$$ like many of their southeastern neighbours counterparts.

Every single Malaysian I met here came to appreciate the culture, work style or to improve their skills and go home, 90% of them speaking fluent japanese. Over a decade working for the immigration and only met a single malaysian overstayer. Malaysia was supposed to be the paradise for any muslim from anywhere, yet they decide to go to countries with culture 100% different from theirs, very hard to understand.

Posted in: Japan lacking burial grounds for expanding Muslim population See in context

It baffles me Muslims of any nation would pick up Japan to live when looking for better conditions.

Lived a while in Malaysia, which is a mix of China, Arabia and India, and where you find AEON Shopping Malls, Daiso, and other big J-entertainment venues, many christian places especially in the beautiful city of Malacca. Very mixed country where everyone has its own space, holidays and way of living. Every muslim wishing to come to Japan should have a look at Malaysia first, such a beautiful country where you won't have any issues with burial, food, customs etc...
