This is just a sign of the breakdown of the once great USA. The future is China. Like it or not.

Well of course he wants to make Japan pay more. He wants this to be a profit making enterprise. After all, he is a businessman.

I guess life in America has become so insufferable, people have to escape with alcohol. How does US alcohol use compare to other countries?

Posted in: Foreign tourists spend record ¥4.8 tril in Japan in 2019 See in context

5 million South Koreans visited Japan last year. South Korea has a population of 51 million, which means that 10% of South Koreans (1 in 10 people) visited Japan last year. That is a significant number. How does that total for a 10 or 20 year period?

I don't understand why they say "unintentionally". Don't they mean "mistakenly"?

Well, Ghosn complained that he couldn't see his wife, so this is a good thing. They'll always be together during this trial.

Iran does not want a war now because they know that if Trump is leading a war during the election, then Trump will win again. They are thinking long term.

Revolution is coming. That is why we read these reports about the ultra-rich building bunkers.

He is a little short-sighted. Robots have only begun. It is said that they will become conscious and be able to make any decisions that humans can.

I know it seemed silly at first, but more and more I'm getting the impression that it was porposely made easy for Ghosn to escape if he wanted to. But by whom and why?

Please understand the 99% conviction rate. That is because courts don't prosecute cases that don't have hard evidence. Those cases are all dismisssed. Since only cases with hard evidence are actually tried, there is a 99% conviction rate.

@Burning Bush Yes, that is why it is dangerous for Americans to let trans women into the woman's restroom. Some of them are originally heterosexual men. They are still heterosexual after conversion, and still desire women even after "becoming" one.

@Buble Boy This can be found in any psychology textbook that deals with these issues.

Posted in: Asia's first LGBT-focused streaming service tackles taboos See in context

@Burning Bush Don't confuse biological sex (male/female), sexuality (hetero/homosexual), and gender (male/female identity). Trans people have a gender that is the opposite of their body, and has nothing to do with sexuality. They change their body to match their gender. A heterosexual man may identify as a woman, and become a trans woman but still be heterosexual (s/he still desires women). Gay men who identify as male are not going to change sex. Same with lesbians who identify as women.

Totally gay gokai is glad to see this. Asia and the rest of the world really need to get rid of the European colonial teaching about gays. In Asia, there was no particular thought about gays until the European colonizers (a polite term) came and said it was bad. That we still believe this is "colonized consciousness". We need to get rid of that. In Japan, for example, the shunga (春画), which were manuals to teach about sex since the 16th century, tought how to do gay sex, usually in the end chapters. But these were deleted in modern times because of Japanese colonized consciousness. Only recently have these sections been restored in modern editions. That's progress.
