@USNinJapan

"A referee who says that he's still "learning" (whatever that means) in the preseason (of the J-League to boot) had absolutely no business officiating at a World Cup."

Really? So you want somebody who says they have learned everything there is to learn ? Good luck finding one such referee.

Posted in: Haruki Murakami’s advice on how to be a great writer: Be born with talent See in context

"you can get better, to an extent, with practice. Fundamentally, though, your abilities are determined by the talents you’ve been born with"

I agree but that's true with anything really, music, sports, acting and running a business etc

"Who cares, the way gas prices are going the cost savings will be paltry for the average driver."

Some people care about what they call the environment. I never understand those people who buy gas-guzzlers just because gas is cheap.

Do you also buy 200 tooth pastes just because they are cheap ?

Why not ? The Olympics have so many sports, so many of them way more minor than Karate, like BMX or speed walking etc.

Karate is definitely more popular than them

Posted in: 'The Wolf of Wall Street' tops 2014 illegal downloads See in context

@Kaerimashita

"i very much doubt that their figures are accurate. If they were the industry would be using their sources to try and stop this loss of revenue, no?"

No. Most people who download music and movies illegally do so because it's free. There was an American girl who got into trouble for downloading more than 2,000 songs illegally. Do you think she would have paid for all of them ?

So they are not losing as much revenue as the illegal downloads

"You have to teach Japanese consumers about your products because they are very ignorant"

One of the most ridiculous advise anyone can give to anybody. You don't tell customers what to buy, you come up with products that customers want. That's exactly why companies like American Big 3, Wallmart and Carrefour has failed in Japan. Funny you call Japanese consumers ignorant since that's exactly what you are

@Wakarimasen

When you pay $12-$15 to see a movie, some of the money go to the movie theaters not just the studio. When it's VOD, almost all goes to the studio, minus the credit card fees but that also applies when you see it at a movie theater.

You don't speak for all either and you are as ignorant as they are.

”Best seller in Japan? Most homes I've been into here are jam packed with clutter”

That's exactly why this book is popular. If every house in Japan was clean and organized then nobody would be buying this book, duh

Posted in: Police to charge suspect with murder of Kobe girl See in context

@hackney

"speaks to police but refuses to discuss the case'. What on earth do they talk about?"

It's a typical good cop/bad cop tactic, I assume. The bad cop asks him tough questions while the good cop asks him about his parents, his job or anything, trying to be friends with the guy. Of course eventually he will ask "you seem like a nice guy, what happened? " etc and encourage him to talk more so that the victim's family can have some kind of closure.

Or maybe I am watching too many detective shows :)

Just like how your country's media reacted when Japan beat your team in the last world cup, getting excited over how your team sucked

"GS Yuasa's quality control was less than stellar"

I said it 100 times already and I will say it again. Boeing is responsible for making sure that all the components work correctly. They have failed again, again and again. Suppliers only make parts based on specifications requested by Boeing. And suppliers can't test the entire airplane, only Boeing can, and they have failed miserably.
