Posted in: Memories of Fukushima crisis rapidly fading, warn civic groups See in context

It is very sad. I personally don’t think Abe, etc. are trying to hide things. Human nature is to forget bad things that happen. Of course there is PTSD, of which I know a bit about. But this nuclear mess is different! I saw a man being interviewed after Fukushima and he said same as me: all this percohertz, serviets, whatever, I don’t even know what it is! They might as well be speaking Navajo for all I and the man know! Can’t see, smell, feel, it, but that deadly mess is just there. And spreading. Fish, plants, mammals on USA west coast, no telling how bad it is on Touhoku coast and out at sea. I loathe EVERYTHING nuclear.

I am really tired of all this from South Korea. I think most of you are too, good comments, for the most part. Enough South Korea. You're really beginning to hurt yourselves.

The saddest news ever to me. Many said it well here, but Kobe White Bar Owner, I agree. Jesus was very tender toward children. His disciples were like many adults today, wanting to make the kids go away, they thought kids were a jama to Jesus. You know what he told them. He even said one time, it would be better for a person to have a millstone tied around their necks and thrown into the sea than to offend one of the little ones, i.e., kids.

All I know is Ethyl and I love hair shops in Japan. Of course me being mostly bald, I don't really need it, but it's a real luxury I indulge in still. I don't like massages like in Thailand, but the way a good shop in Japan massages head, shoulders is very good. We will keep going. And paying a lot for it.

Posted in: Hundreds gather near Japan's embassy in Seoul to mourn S Korean 'comfort woman' See in context

I am so sorry for what people have had to suffer during war. It's terrible. As a Vietnam veteran, I still have bad dreams and feelings about that. So I know a little bit about some of these feelings. But, I agree with the majority of posters here. It's enough. And it seems the South Korea is using this politically as mentioned. Thepersoniamnow really said it well. And, this is not just South Korea, people in USA still blame others for their problems too. We've got to move forward.

Posted in: Do you think Nissan's sales will suffer as a result of former chairman Carlos Ghosn's prolonged detention in Japan? See in context

I'm with speed. I just want whichever car I think is the best for the money. Heck, if we stopped buying from companies that have CEO and policies that we don't agree with for whatever reason, we couldn't buy anything! "Lets boycott Disney because of blah blah blah...let's boycott Apple because they blah blah blah... let's boycott Name the Company..." Sure, I want to support responsible, ethical companies that believe like me, but I have to watch out for my own bank account.

South Korea is doing nothing but hurting their best interests, and especially for any surviving real women from WWII. Most of you above said it already. It's pathetic how some of these South Korean politicians act about this. Pitiful.

I'd take them up on this! Free food, get to work early, then when everybody else came in, while picking my teeth, I'd say, hey boys, how y'all?

Posted in: Do you think the 10-day Golden Week holiday period from April 27 to May 6, during which the imperial succession is scheduled to take place, is a good idea? The travel industry is eager to take advantage of the unusual business opportunity, while a survey has indicated that people who welcome the holidays and those who do not are nearly evenly divided. See in context

Do you think the 10-day Golden Week holiday period from April 27 to May 6, during which the imperial succession is scheduled to take place, is a good idea?

Look at the question. It simply asks is the 10 day Golden Week holiday a good idea. Yes. But like others said, all Japanese have to take same days, shougatu, obon, Golden Week, like lemmings in the ridiculous 70-80 km traffic jams, trains, fees increase as mentioned. Glad I never had to work on Japanese schedule. We stay home during ALL Japan holidays.

Posted in: Are you better off financially than you were this time last year? See in context

Like Serrano said, health, tha's where it's at boys. Believe me. I'm a tad better off financially I reckon, but health took a down turn in October 2017. Retired last April 1st (hmmmm...., why they make me retire that day?!). All I can say is I've worked like a dog, sorry Rover, laying at me feet, all my life! Started at 7 years old cutting grass with a biscuit motor (left/right arms), paper boy, gas station, construction, Vietnam war (sorry Vietnamese people, but I only thought maybe the south could become free, prosperous, and democratic like South Korea did), then every kind of work there is just about. Let's hang in boys, we're gonna make it.

I'll put it this way: do you trust Putin?

Not me. He's still a communist, like China, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela. Of these, western countries have messed up greatly by doing so much trade with China, cannae buy anything not Hecho en Chine since the 1990s. I'll take Hecho en USA/Japan!

Posted in: Burnout, stress lead more companies around the world to try a four-day work week See in context

I've been in the work place for over 55 years. Here's what has happened: hard workers have always worked hard (I won't talk about slackers). But since the advent of computers, people are working harder than ever, and expected to do more! University professors have been doing secretarial work at their jobs, doctors are record keepers, police are report filers, managers take work everywhere they go on laptops. You simply cannae get away from your work these days! It's killing people in advanced countries! Until I retired last March, I was doing more and more computer work that used to be done by secretaries. And I have never been a secretary, which is in itself very important work!

Hitler took this symbol over. Similar to how racists too over the stars and bars confederate symbol. Feelings toward these symbols will not change no matter their original meanings. You can't go any deeper than how people believe about something.
