My kids used to be embarrassed as they were the only kids wearing helmets when snow boarding. There’s a lot more kids wearing them nowadays but still not enough.

I thought I was against the death penalty…..having read this I’m not so sure, I might even volunteer to pull the trap door myself.

Posted in: Israel and Hamas making progress in cease-fire and hostage-release talks, officials say See in context

Interesting how SA is so vocal when it’s Israel yet the deaths of a similar number & displacement of over 7 million people in Sudan doesn’t worry them at all. SA government is racist to the core…

Posted in: Many Japanese outside major urban areas do not engage with foreigners: survey See in context

Surely depends which ‘type’ of foreigner?! If you’ve lived in shizuoka near the large population from a certain South American country then speaking from experience I can say that you wouldn’t want any ‘foreigners’ living near you. If it’s your big standard English teacher then most people wouldn’t have any problems at all.

‘I don’t remember’…..sounds like an old Japanese man rather than a foreigner.

I’ve listened to the ATC recordings several times. The ATC communication was poor to say the least. The male ATC did not use the term ‘hold short’ or ‘line up and wait’ which are standard terms used. The ATC should also have had a warning of an impending collision yet they issued to warning to JAL, dubious to say the least.

No helmet, probably no lights and by the sounds of it going across the road in front of a car….arrest the parents for neglect.

@Kurisupisu why don’t you read the article and then you wouldn’t need to ask pointless questions.

I work about 5mins from where that photo was taken, it was about 7deg yesterday afternoon and the winds were horrendous. The bad weather had been forecast for days, nobody should have left their cars let alone started hiking up.

Posted in: Man arrested for abusing 4-year-old daughter See in context

Wow, I work in a tourist location and have seen a mother actually punch her daughter in the face…..I was stopped from intervening because it would ‘look bad on the company’…..if they’re going to arrest this guy (rightly) then they’re going to be very busy as I see that more than once a week where I work.

Posted in: FIFA head Infantino says Women's World Cup breaks even but plays down calls for equal prize money See in context

It should be equal, the women take home over four times the amount the men take home when broken down as a percentage from the amount the World Cup earns. The men need a massive increase.

Posted in: Number of teachers quitting for mental health reasons hits record high in Japan See in context

Doesn’t surprise me. When my son was having issues with a kid at school I went in to see his teacher, the guy was covered in bite marks down his arms. He explained they were from the ‘problem child’ in the class and there’s nothing he or the school could do about it…..he was getting bitten every day drying to stop the child from attack other kids. Every day of that would force you down the path towards a mental break down.

Posted in: Japanese TV issues heatstroke alert, says to avoid exercise, but keeps showing high school baseball game See in context

If his body temp was seriously measured at 45deg Celsius then the coaches/organisers should be investigated and charged…..that is criminal to let a child/minor in your care get into that condition.

They can import from China instead. I used to live in China, food quality is none existent in some places.

As soon as I saw the first reports on the TV I immediately thought bullying would be a part of this story, obviously doesn’t make it right at all.

Beating up the landlord. Not very clever if you want a roof over your head.

Is he stupid? That’s not how it works, people will pay what it’s worth…not what HE thinks it’s worth. Not that many people are interested to start with, add to that the time difference and even less people will be watching.

Posted in: Ramen noodle shop owner fatally shot in Kobe See in context

Used to live in Nagata, lovely place & lovely people but the yaks were everywhere. At a restaurant we used to visit regularly I was told it’s ok to park my car in the road, 100% I won’t get a ticket. The owner eventually told me he paid the yaks who paid the police not to give tickets outside restaurants they were “taxing”….

Having spent quite some time living in China and living on the coast I have to say they have a cheek. The amount of plastic & other waste they just dump into the rivers & ocean is unbelievable…..& the air pollution was even worse.

As long as they’re the best for the job then that’s all that matters. It shouldn’t be like the US and UK where first they chose skin colour, then female with skill level being last if at all.

Yep, they won’t use any evidence, they’ll ‘frame’ it. You couldn’t make it up.

How can they be arrested when they’re not in Japan? If they’re on the plane and have not gone through passport control they can’t be ‘in Japan’…..
