Thats really impressive.

10 years ago and I was sure I couldnt be a translator/interpreter forever.

We all need to reinvent ourselves to cope with the new ages.

The key is doing something neither robots or AI will be doing for the next 100 years.

(lawyer, real estate, social services etc.)

Considering the size of the bus the probability of スマホ歩きis pretty much a certainty.

have you watched the video? It shows the darwin award recipient walking right into the bus (1:58)

But the most irritating is the phone zombies who are everywhere from train stations, walkways, streets, malls etc!

Pedestrians in Japan are very patient, considerate and polite. Yes, I'm obviously excluding Tokyo area.

Simply walking a few meters from the parking spot to the office everyday is already enough for me.

I've seen people getting into/off trains during rush hour with their eyes glued to their phones.

I'd lose my patience in a week.

Imagine crossing one of busiest crossings in the world with your eyes glued on a smartphone.

To the extent of not being able to notice a massive bus right in front of you.

They walk among us.

Every Biden article immediately becomes about Trump. with any negative comments about Biden immediately deleted.

My home is American Reinaissance, NYPost, Fox News, Breitbart. Daily Mail, The Sun, etc. but its also amusing coming by to have a look at these lunatics. They literally walk among us. You and bass owning these people is the cherry on the cake

Imagine falling for the same trick TWICE in a row.....

I'll be rushing to vote for Biden because Trump is definitely bringing WW3, that orange dictator.

The world will be much more peaceful with another 4 years of Biden.

Posted in: Biden rolls out migration order that aims to shut down asylum requests, after months of anticipation See in context

Just think about what happened just last week (Libertarian National Convention)

Trump agreed to speak at a rival party’s convention in front of a hostile audience.

A room where people had been unruly ALL DAY.

And managed to bring the room together.

Joe Biden can’t even speak in front of a controlled room of handpicked guests without screwing it up—let alone a crowd of an opposition party.

This is not a tough choice.

2025 will be a better year for everyone, like it or not.

Good lord..... apparently you can't say Biden is the worst president in US history and not being a Trump supporter. Actually even 1 reason anyone should be casting a vote for Biden at this point? Not a cult at all...

Posted in: Biden rolls out migration order that aims to shut down asylum requests, after months of anticipation See in context

So basically, Biden's order "closing the border" allows 800,000 or illegals per year to enter the country and be processed as fake refugees before the government even lifts a finger to reduce the flow. Yet the media is selling it and there will be people who buy into it.

Posted in: 46% in Japan have issues interacting with foreign co-workers: survey See in context

if you come to Japan with a JLPT N2 certificate in hands there is virtually 0 issue.

Japan is not a country to "immigrate", people come and go all the time, the only people I see staying are those with actual interest in the country. Hence, most who stay for life are other Asians, and a handful of White japanophiles.

Posted in: Shibuya Ward to extend night street alcohol drinking ban all year-round See in context

from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m.

I couldnt care less about anything involving alcohol but this is ridiculous.

1-Shibuya is one of the top recipients of foreign tourists. Imagine drinking with your friends in Shinjuku just to get stopped in the streets 1 station away? Who's explaining all this to every single tourist "getting caught" drinking in Shibuya?

2-Too early. Hard workers deserve a happy hour outdoors. If you really want to go draconian why not dot it like 12 to 5?

Posted in: AM radio listeners set to be permanently tuned out in Japan See in context

AM radio can save you in an earthquake. Do you think your mobile phone or internet will help you when the big one hits?

I'm a big radio listener, but the state of radio broadcasting in Japan is appalling. There's a handful of FM stations in the Kanto region of 35 million people.

Besides what will happen to the AM in those mountainous expressways/tunnels?

And I agree regarding the radio in this place, whenever I fool myself into trying to listen to j-radio while driving I get some 10 stations with nothing but people talking about the most shallow, boring stuff, akin to watching all those people eating on tv

the woman was walking on the platform in front of the man and turned around to say something to him him, which is when he punched her.

Dont ever underestimate human beings, the psycho could have had pushed that woman onto tracks in no time and thought nothing about it. Life is a bliss when you stay away from crowds of humans and all their drama.

Is there still time? Anyway they can find someone actually competent to challenge Trump in november?

Because from what I'm seeing here they are doing whatever they can to give the guy the presidency on a silver plate.

Did anyone actually thought they were not going to find him guilty in NYS, especially in NYC. This was all the Democrats plan. They fear him so much. This is the beginning of the end for democracy in our country. The is a slippery slope. We are becoming a 3rd world country with government corruption.

If you consider that aircraft like the SR-71 and Harrier have been flying since the 60’s, who knows what kind of tech the militaries of the world have now, that the public will only see 20 years later.

A 25 years old B-2 flying by very slowly right in front of your eyes is something you never forget. Just out of this world.

Posted in: Paris film fans embrace 'Tora-san' as appetite for Japan movies grows See in context

I agree that most speech in doramas and modern films seems fake and exaggerated, but don't know if it has anything to do with America. I find that it is much worse in modern Japanese productions than in ones from the 50s and 60s.

I find this (limited) foreign appreciation of Tora san a bit bemusing, but whatever floats your boat. The bits I've seen have not encouraged me to watch more. I like Japanese cinema, but the more arty or cinephile end. From the Tora san era, I like Shohei Imamura's films like Vengeance is Mine, almost the polar opposite to Tora san.

There are quite a few movies that depict the Japanese exactly the way they are.

I got to know 2 of them just recently (for work purposes), MONDAYS and Takano Tofu-ten no Haru (高野豆腐店の春) and they're very realistic to the point you keep saying to yourself I know this guy!

But for many of them, especially when there is some kind of "hero" character, 95% of the dialogs are so fake and confident its cringy!

But I'll take this opportunity and try to watch the 1st episode of Tora-san, I guess its almost 'mandatory' to see and experience these things so ingrained in the society you chose to live in, I doubt there is any japanese above his 30s that doesnt know about Tora-san.

We are ready and know the exact possibilities and how it will unfold.

Just a shame 95% of human beings don't have a clue about Astronomy, Foreign civilizations and all the possibilities out there... we're still struggling hard to progress past the Type 0 civilization.

Posted in: Paris film fans embrace 'Tora-san' as appetite for Japan movies grows See in context

The idea of Japanese people welcoming an itinerant wanderer without reservation is so far fetched.

They’d be more likely to call the police…

The acting in japanese movies is also a copycat of American movies.

No one here talks like that in real life. No one is that open and spontaneous.

It's actually kind of hard to watch when you've been in the country for a while and you know exactly how the japanese would talk and react in real life, the contrast keeps disturbing you during the movie.
