Posted in: Yamanote line in Tokyo features AKB48 train See in context

AKB is the epitome of Japanese civilization! I mean, what other country could come up with an idea to take a unch of young, scantily clad girls and make them into a sensation? Well, yeah, of course Larry Flint, but who else? I clicked on this link to see the comments. I do not come to JT for news. This site has the worst journalism I have ever seen, well, I suppose it is to be expected in a country that thinks harmony exists only in a group where a bunch of fearful slaves mindlessly obey a master. And when she says that she tried to remove emotion from her voice, what she meant was that she subverted her instinctive "Sugiwa, mecha kawaii stoppo desu".

Great investment. So who cares? Why don't Japanese scientists do something that will actually help the world? If you are diminished to the point that you think it is a good idea to send someone who you talked to over the phone money, then you should not be living on your own. I do not have much sympathy for people who lose money in phishing scams. Financial Darwinism if you ask me.

Posted in: Don't break the bank: Japan's superb cheap eats See in context

I cook at home and have as large or small a portion as I like. If you think that spending ¥3,500 for lunch is normal, then you are an idiot. Local yakitori restaurant in my Kyoto neighborhood costs about ¥2,000 per person for big portions of food, the largest yakionigiri ever over a couple of hours of snack/eating/drinking. Oyaji on Onmae-dori near Nakadachiuri street intersection. I have eaten in a lot o places in Japan, and I have not been to many laces where the food was worth what you paid. Also, given that Japan imports more than 60% of its food and wastes more food than almost every other country, shouldn't people be more concerned about what a waste Japanese food is? Mottainai...not!

Outta her in a couple of weeks, back home to energy surplus, cheaper food, reasonable housing prices and costs! Sorry about missing out on the fun of energy savings. Turn off all the drink vending machines, for dog's sake!

bajhista, you do understand that America made Japan the success it was by offering it preferred status for many years so that American companies had a gullible 100,000,000 strong marketing opportunity? Japanese companies are not the best anymore. And Japanese rice is no better than Calrose. You do not understand genetics. Calrose is the exact same product. Genetics determines the contents of a plant. Proper farming techniques provide efficiency.

The rice here is named japonicas, and it is the same short-grained rice as is grown by more efficient means everywhere else in the world. Te same willl happen here as in Korea. People will switch to cheaper wheat products. Japanese are afraid of competing in anything because they do not kow how to innovate. The average population suffers, but who cares as long as the idiots in government still rule this sinking ship, it will never change. Buy your overpriced rice, dummies.

Silly. Who cares. He has had an apartment here for many years. I hope his citizenship and the sale of his NY apartment will somehow bring peace to the 300,000 Tohoku refugees.

As a former Investment Advisor back home in Canada, I can tell you that brown-nosing is what you have to perfect in the industry. Anyone who thinks that you get rich in that business in any other way knows nothing. But you have to do it for clients. This story is totally fabricated, however entertaining. Anyone who works in a Japanese office where locals spend most of their time bending over, literally, jumping nervously for the bucho, and tripping over themselves when called upon by senpai knows that efficiency and productivity in Japan is not important. Any news service that prints a story like this with the caveat above is not a news organization anyway.

Marijuana is not an addictive drug, but like all substances that we introduce to our bodies, there is the possibility of a certain level of dependence. Idiotic drug laws in Asia do nothing to serve society. Of course, if anyone in this country or in any other Asian country knew anything about science they would know that marijuana has been shown to increase brain cells http://www.nature.com/news/2005/051010/full/news051010-12.html

Posted in: Ishihara agrees with Nagoya mayor's Nanjing massacre denial See in context

China and Japan are both products of illiterates who could not understand what the Analectics of Confucious were actually about. China spends a lot of time being critical of Japan in order to deflect from its own atrocious policies and behaviors, old and current. The people of Tokyo elect this joker because they are slaves who are disgruntled, over-worked, unable to raise their families properly, and are addicted to energy drinks and online shopping. When they hear someone as dumb as Ishihara puking his rhetoric, it allows them to vent, because they are too spineless to do it themselves.

Posted in: Mitsubishi buys Encana BC gas assets See in context

Yeah, the third largest supply of oil in the world...we are running low. I worked in the business. I have seen what is happening. I chuckle when I read statements like 'selling our assets' because anyone who knows how business and govt works knows that A foreign controlling interest in a Canadian company may have the power to siphon its profits out of the country, big deal. It is a grave misunderstanding to think that that has much of an affect on our economy as a whole. Citizen Mel is a nice, well-intentioned guy, but he profits from his alarmist diatribe.

lol...you have no idea what you are talking about. NAFTA has proven to be a great piece of legislation for Canada. It has enabled countless numbers of people to start up new businesses and take advantage of the NA market. I once railed against NAFTA when I was an investment advisor for RBC. If you are old enough to remember, it foretold of the end of healthcare, free education, and no more social services. None of those things have happened. Harper sucks, but the things that Mulroney did that were unpopular are why Canada passed through the recent economic disaster virtually unscathed...but haters don't think about these things, they just want to imagine Shangri-la on their terms. I am not dismissing your comments, I just wish you would look at the whole picture. Encana needs this investment badly. It is a great Canadian company that has been a great investment for people who have taken charge of their own investments for a while now. I hope this enables them to hang tough.

Stop it. This is a perfectly acceptable. Form of office behavior. This is exaggerated too. As we all know, Japanese are too nice and friendly to do any of this. The kindness of the group and the concern that people he always show toward one another means this article is a big, fat lie, making it the only thing in Japan that is big and fat.

I imagine that the prosecutors initially tried to drop the case after being bribed by Ozawa. Now these prosecutors have screwed up the case intentionally to make it go away. Ozawa is such a nice man and done so much for his country, it was a shame that he had ever been suspected of anything. My goodness, what will be next? People accusing Japanese companies of doing illegal things? Make it all go away so everyone can save face! Please...no more negativity...everything is fine here in Japan!

Posted in: Azumi under fire for revealing forex intervention level See in context

JGal...that is what selling yen means...lol...Japan no longer has control over its own currency, and interventions have proven mostly to be a waste of time. Japan has to fix its social and political situation, in order to effectively restart it economy again. The problem is that the people in gov't do not care about the rest of the population. They have it good, so that is what matters. Japan's wealthy are moving boatloads of money to Singapore to avoid the coming losses when the govt and banks can no longer sustain the internal debt load, and begin wiping out savings and investment funds held by private citizens, claiming it is the only way to fix things. Long term investment here is a fatal decision.

Everything here is synthetic. Sumimasen (not really). Kawaii (usually ugly and stupid). Oishii (yeah, right). Fukushima vegetables are safe. We needed a lot of help with that deal. (Olympus). Your information is safe with us. (Sony). Our contract is not specific, because it is based on mutual trust...get back to your 70th hour of work and forget about your family. (Any business) Why would you be surprised to find put that Valentine's Day is loveless here? Japan is an endless display of disingenuous, superficiality. The biggest concern for Japanese people is not that people in Tohoku are suffering, it is that other people know about it.

It is merely a group of totalitarians standing arm in arm. Russia and china can not back any kind of support for humanitarianism as they are guilty of as much themselves. China is the most horrid country on the planet, receiving a pass only because it's hideous regime allows large businesses a slave workforce. Russia is facing its own springtime insurrection,mso it cannot support anything but brut force. This has nothing to do with America. It has everything to do with seeing what countries have any sympathy for humanity.

If the nuclear reactor is stabilized now, it defies currently held positions that it takes years to stabilize a plant that has undergone a meltdown. Timtak, are you serious?

Posted in: Eurozone crisis biggest threat to world economy, Noda tells Davos forum See in context

If you think that welfare programs have any impact whatsoever, then you are an idiot and know nothing of economics. As a matter fact, increasing benefits, such as unemployment insurance result in larger influxes of spending because rich people and companies do not spend their money, they save it or invest. And Japan is not immune to sovereign debt risk. When you correctly point out that Japan's debt is mostly internal, that just means that all the savings of the Japanese people has been used to finance the waste that has been Japan over the last 35 years. Right now, many rich Japanese are moving their money to Singapore. Why? Because if they leave it here it will disappear when the government can no longer sustain this course of fake economics. The govt has said it will guarantee that banks will not fail here. that is because when they do, the average person here is screwed out of every penny they have ever saved in a bank. This may even wake up the Japanese people to riot and throw the elite out of power.

Posted in: At least 10 groups dealing with disaster kept no detailed records of meetings See in context

Not surprising at all. In Japan, people do not like to write things down, make firm, recorded agreements, or have any permanent record that could embarrass in the future. For anyone who knows the way Japanese business operates, decisions are made before any kind of meeting is held. These decisions are worked out behind the scenes with various underlings performing message delivery services. At the point where an agreement has been reached, and no disharmonious disagreement could possibly occur, a meeting is held and the public facade of being able to reach an agreement quickly without any dissent is purveyed. In this case, no records would be kept because there was likely a lot of disagreement about how to do things. This would reflect badly on those involved, and as we all know, mentsu is the most important thing...even if it means unnecessary deaths and discomfort for the plebes.
