Posted in: In this age of streaming services, do you think going to the cinemas will soon be a thing of the past? See in context

yeah, I'll never get a 4k tv that will fit on my wall that is as good as a theater. It's better than it was but there's still only one way for the best movies.

Bah, if he's still in jail the whole Nissan board ought to join him.

Posted in: Japan seeks 1st aircraft carrier to deploy stealth fighters See in context

Japan could probably do very well with unmanned fighters / drones. But in the meantime Japan has to become more independent of the USA foreign policy and needs to step up and become a world power. Japan's peaceful rise should alarm nobody.

Posted in: Japan's justice system under scrutiny over Ghosn's continued detention See in context

Trump? Nissan and Mitsubishi are Japanese companies, Renault is French. Ghosn isn't a US citizen. Japan has pretty much said they're going after Ghosn. Up to France to demand access for their lawyers. Hopefully Marcon will kick some Abe butt.

Posted in: N Korean official urges Japan to apologize over forced labor See in context

meh. NK has no ability to tell somebody else to apologize after all the misery they've caused their own citizens. The Kim clan has killed more Koreans than Japan ever did.

China hasn't agreed to free anything in years and they aren't going to start now.

Posted in: Japan to invite ASEAN air force officers to observe SDF training See in context

but their tactics are laughable

And you know this how? It would seem that practice with the like minded countries to prepare to thwart the Chinese takeover is as good a tactic as it gets.

Posted in: Cabin attendants have good hospitality and English skills. We want multitaskers who can convince top company executives, government officials and university professors to meet with global investors or speak at conferences. See in context

lol, one guy I knew was on the Chicago - Narita run so often he married a flight attendant. Does that count?

Posted in: Trump says he may consider sanctions over missing Saudi journalist See in context

I can't speak to the temperament of Mr. Khashoggi but he hardly looks like a brawler. So now the Saudi's throw a bunch of people under the bus to protect the crown prince, apparently. Guess we wait and see what Trump actually does.

Yeah, unfortunately the drug OD bit is a very hot topic right now. But I'm not going to miss the show.

Posted in: Trump threatens to send military, shut border as migrants head for Mexico See in context

And yet we've got engineers with masters degrees who can't stay in the country because they're following the rules. This is some sort of bizarre publicity stunt that's just going to have the politicians playing political football with people as the ball. Immigration is easy. No felony, yes job, you, your spouse, and kids are in. Anything more complicated is politics.

Posted in: Kim says N Korea has made many concessions to Japan on abduction issue See in context

Maybe an accounting of what happened to the abductees would put an end to this issue but I can't say I'd trust NK in any case.

Posted in: Saudi Arabia says it will retaliate against any sanctions over Khashoggi case See in context

This has to be one of the most disturbing things that I've heard of in a long time. Journalists are always in danger in a lot of places but this kind of behaviour is just sickening.

True, but need to set lower expectations. It might be important but I don't expect much to change.

Posted in: Built for young families, minicars attract a huge following among elderly drivers See in context

I'll take a Kei over a Prius any day, not just because the Kei is more friendly to the environment compared to all the lithium and circuits in the Prius. As far as safety is concerned I ride a motorcycle too so it's a moot point. Honestly, if you're traveling by yourself or have to have a vehicle for a commute a bike is a very good way to go.

Why would the head of Yasukuni criticize the Emperor? Seems like he's really put his foot in his mouth over this one.

Posted in: Japan's women sailors serve on frontline of gender equality See in context

somebody quickly disarm that woman before she shoots herself or somebody else.

She has absolutely no idea how to handle that pistol.

What do you base that on? Her finger is outside the guard, his grip is OK, the way she seems to be ready to rack the slide is OK. What possible problem do you see in her technique?
