Is it smoke free? I don't share the Japanese passion for smoking.

I did not even think of this happening, as it does not happen much in Japan in general.

You must be joking right? What is the point of the women only cars on the trains and subways of Tokyo?

I think many people are missing one of the main points here : it's the way the dolphins are being killed. If they want to kill animals, fine go for it, but as a neutral observer the method being used here looks totally barbaric to me.

Second, to Zenny11's comment above : What is the "off limit' area you are referring to? Taiji is not off limits.

Interesting article here on the crime rate (figures from 2008) :


However, to summarise - SOFA-status people accounted for 1.62 percent of all arrests on Okinawa during the year, while they make up 3.28 percent of the island’s population.

Mao Asada "expected" to come home with gold? I thought the Korean skater Kim Yu-Na was overwhelming favorite in the ladies figure skating. -2009 World Champ, 3 time Grand Prix Final Champion, record holder in short and free skating and that is just a small sampling. Someone ought to let TBS know.... also let them know Japan isn't the only nation competing at the winter olympics. From what I saw of the summer games while it was broadcast here the olympics consists of a week of judo then a week of one swimming event.
