Posted in: NBA, 'South Park' episodes spotlight Hollywood's China dilemma See in context

You are what you eat. If you are fed stupidity, you are stupid.

Totally agreeable. If you're fed (stupid) Chinese government propaganda, well... You are what you eat, right?

Last night's episode was even funnier. Not just coz Randy said "#$@& the Chinese government" but the part where the neighbor was trying to vaccinate Cartman was hilarious.

Posted in: 'South Park' creators issue mock apology over China censorship See in context

I know this should be "banned in China", but with "band in China", I don't get the joke. Can someone explain this?

Kind of the same as their latest PS4/Xbox game, "The Fractured But Whole". They knew they wouldn't be allowed to use the intended name so they used this one. Which kind of sound more poetic and if you've played the game, it sounds just right.

And are they in jail right now? No? I mean, they admitted they never reported all that money/gifts so we already know they're guilty so... Oh right, they're Japanese and I'm Japan everyone gets treated equally under the book of the law...

What was it that politicians and business owners opposed to the indoor smoking ban were saying, that restaurants would go to bankrupt if smoking was banned? Yeah... I mean, look at how bad this yakiniku (that doesn't even serve beer) is doing.

Posted in: Users tell us they don't want their children to see tattoos. We don't want Japanese customers to leave us. See in context

That said there are establishments in Japan that allow these things, so it just takes research to find those.

There are places but I doubt they're easy to research if you come here as a tourist.

A better solution, tho, would be for the organizers of these sports events to make a list of these establishments that allow tattoos. Or for the people in charge of specific groups, teams, to find a place that allows for it and let the establishment know beforehand. Just so we don't have the situation we had some years ago, where the government (or private organization, can't remember) brought this Maori woman for a conference. Then took her to a local onsen where tattoos are not allowed and made a huge scandal coz how dare they be so un-pc to discriminate against her cultural face tattoos?

The whole thing could have had a totally different outcome if organizers have had done their job properly.

"Tramp stamps" man... Sexiest thing I can think of in a women (or at least top 5) Love them! And why are some people so sensitive???

Posted in: Schoolteacher bullied by colleagues; curry rubbed against eyes See in context

The board said it removed the four -- all involved in the school's bully prevention program 

The irony. And somehow it doesn't surprise me as much. About 8 years ago I worked at this school where the one teacher in charge of the "zero bulling" campaign, the one teacher a student dedicated her speech contest to say how much she (this teacher) inspired her (student). This teacher would come back to the teachers' room and bully the heck of anyone else younger than her or foreigner (me) on a daily basis.

Invite the entire world, two years in a row to your house but they're not allowed to use any of the facilities. And I don't want you to let be seen by my kids.

Hahaha! I wonder what incredible story those Korea nationalistic posters will come up with now that it's Korea asking Japan.

Joke aside, we all lose if we try to stand alone against the North and China. I've always believed and still do, that Japan and S. Korea should put their BS to the side and start acting like true allies. They're both free countries (to an extended), unlike N. Korea and Winnie the Pooh's nation.

First they want to commit genocide, now they threaten other politicians. These clowns definitely sound worse than NHK collectors, ironically the one thing they wanted to stand against.

Posted in: Woman awarded damages over infidelity of same-sex partner See in context

So he previously had an affection for her, artificially got her pregnant and would be the biological dad but then had a sex change to become "a (fake) woman" so he could be a mom? Weird.

Glad the other woman got awarded damages. After all she went through (and must be going through) so the person she loved could have kids.

S. Korea demanding they be back on Japan's "trusted countries white list" is as dumb as Japan demanding S. Korea accept products from Fukushima after the nuclear meltdown.

Posted in: South Korea initiating WTO complaint over Japan trade curbs See in context

Nope. The Korean government had nothing to do with the boycott, which is strictly voluntary by public

Buahahaha! You don't believe that for a moment. What was that sticker that Seoul and Busan want to put on "war criminal companies" product? Or municipalities putting "no Japan" banners around the city. Or the Moon saying S. Korea won't lose to Japan again. Or all the propaganda around the country against Japan. The list goes on and on and on.

I'm struggling to stay afloat with my two jobs and I don't have kids. How do they make it with no jobs and two kids??? Also, they waste the no-money they have in Pachinko? Makes sense they thought the kid's wounds were not an emergency.

We should call the Gulf of Mexico "The West Gulf" because calling it what it is now, is too offensive for Florida residents. 2000 years it was not called Gulf of Mexico. How come 2000 years into the present it is the Gulf of Mexico?

Just two them you don't have a TV (haven't owned one for a decade). Worked for me most of the time. And if they insist that you still have to pay coz you have internet, just shut the door in their faces. Also worked for me.

Hahaha, like husband and wife, sometimes, pain is pleasure.

If you're married and your marriage resembles anything like this, it must be a disaster.

this will go on until one of two is out of power, Moon or Abe.

Agree. Hopefully the South Korean people can see Moon for the failure of a leader he has been and opt for someone better.
