What he referred to was a “rejuvenation treatment,” a euphemism for “testicle massage,” for which customers paid 14,500 yen for a one-hour session

You must be nuts to pay that.

Great, an ad for "new low fares" that doesn't tell you the "new low fare"

50,000 chickens per building? What kind of conditions did they live and die in? Sounds awful.

Insurance fraud? - there may be a nugget of truth in that.

I guess he took his position as "vice manager" a bit too seriously.

So who is the captain for the rest of the year? Wouldn't that be more interesting to know?

Strangely, in 8 years in Japan I've never once heard politics mentioned in the office I work in. You wouldn't know it existed.

Do you mean "extra"?

How about a pearl of spelling for you?

I understand that regular Coke doesn't have artificial ingredients. The natural ones in it are bad enough for you in quantity.

Instant Chicken Ramen Coke would be the bestest!

I think it's best to focus on the process, not the results, just like this guy says.

If you do, and find a man with pen to sign the deal, you will get sales. Sales always follow the customer signing the contract!

The problem, she tells Sasaki, is age.

Unfortunately, too true. Whatever you do, make sure you are male, 28, went to a good university and have about 12 years experience in your field.... preferably in one company.

In these economic times, if you are working, making enough to pay your expenses, and don't go home a night hoping none of your friends saw what you do for a living, then you should count your blessings and press on!

Hear hear. What's with all the haters? She's 22 for god's sake. Presumably you were running Cisco at that age, let the rest of us just get on with it.

"Why would you be encouraged by a shotgun marriage?".

I guess she's hoping the boyfriend can slip one past the goalie and give her the current fashionable excuse to marry (perhaps 'batter' rather than 'goalie' in Nomaguchi's case)

I understand their next plan is to come into your house or apartment and photograph all your rooms as a service to anyone who may buy or rent it in future.

Of course, if you're doing nothing wrong at home you have nothing to worry about.

This is probably the least ridiculous photo-op they were in.

I expect there are photos lurking elsewhere of them posing with some muppet dressed as a 'mascot' or with some 'ist' or 'ambassador' such as 'Banana-ist of the Year 2009' or 'Mascara Ambassador 2009' or some other such crap.

Poor bastards. Beam me up Scotty.

I wonder if they thought of looking at the suspect's house for the suspect. He probably just walked home and has been busy on his PS3 since then.

The good news is that while there is a big unknown surrounding this kind of tax, there is also a limit to the number of tax auditors and the work they can do.

That would be 'good news' for who exactly?
