Let's face it: Japanese women have ZERO support from government agencies or any other organization whatsoever. Most Japanese men's house work is limited to a nightly bath with the kids and a trip to the local park on the weekend. Who wouldn't go nuts like this?

Posted in: Man revives woman with AED, but branded 'pervert' for removing her clothes to apply electrode pads See in context

I once saw something bizarre at an athetic meet. A young male runner was about to faint when crossing the finish line. The runner was about to hit the ground and this fat hairy guy grabs him still standing up and starts kissing him in the mouth. He was sort of French kissing the runner. The red cross interferred and the fat guy alleged he was trying to revive the runner (standing up?) by giving him "mouth to mouth"....After recovering, the young runner looked grosssed out and keep wiping his mouth.

Aamazon is a business, not a charity. Apple, Google and Microsoft are way nastier and few people seem to care.

Excuse the directness, but Japanese people have such thin skins these days......'left the pitch crying'....the wimp should have ignored them; instead he won himself a new nickname that will haunt him as long as he plays in Europe....

Posted in: Employees reveal absurd company regulations See in context

I've said it many times before and say it again: Working in Japan involves putting up with absurdity that would probably be considered a violation of human rights in other countries, especially at small family owned companies.

I've heard and seen TV reports on companies where the owners or founders are no different from cult leader with employees having to bow to their pictures every morning, run work-unrelated errands for their children, serve tea or coffee at a determined time or otherwise risk a cut in payment or public humiliation or abuse.

One of most stupid examples I saw on TV once was that of a ramen chain owner in Osaka who had this obsession with Rambo and made all employees undergo compulsory military-like training at 5:00am every morning at no extra pay...of curse, he was 'the commander' of the ramen forces....utterly stupid....

But I dearly remember the truck driver who was fired from a small family cult-like company, so, pissed off, he stole a cistern truck full of human waste and emptied the contents in the company's main office....revenge is sweet.....

Posted in: Was I a date, a friend or just a potential English teacher? See in context

I've always had a hard time reading Japanese people despite my 20 years of living and working with them. Back in college, when a girl said 'teach me English' it mostly meant take me, I'm yours.' Other times and spoken by an old dude or lady who wants to 'take you under their wing,' it could mean 'teach me English 'cause that's the only thing you're good at or the only thing you can do for me since you're a leach feeding on my country's resources.'

I've always found it hard to make Japanese friends because there is always an assumption, at least in the part of the Japanese that, something has to be exchanged for the relationship to work....

Posted in: Ken Matsudaira's wife found dead in apparent suicide See in context

Truly horrible. Something's gotta be done about suicide in this country. Back home, my neighbor's teenage son attempted suicide a few times..he was a messed up kid with the self-esteem of a garbage can...but my real shock came here in Japan when someone jumped in front of the train I was riding on...I was petrified. That was the most horrible feeling I have experienced...a life lost so close to me...and that happens about 8 times a day in this country...

Posted in: Nissan shows tiny electric concept vehicle See in context

I like the car and would actually buy it if I needed to commute or to run errands in limited geographical areas. The moment will come when people will realize that a heavy, energy consuming, air-polluting pile of metal and plastic is actually unnecessary. Cars have always been way underutilized; therefore, becoming a terrible investment compared with the damage they cause.

Posted in: What do you think of the banking system in Japan? What are the pros and cons? See in context

Japanese banks rob people blind: 0.01% or 0.02% interest in savings and they charge you for just about every transaction...pure thievery. Back home interest on savings is now around 3.5% (it got it to 6% during the good times) and banks do whatever it takes to attract new costumers: Point systems, discounts, freebies, free online banking, etc.

If I were the taxi driver, I'd go to the man's company and have a chat with his boss. If one of my staff was a. arrested and b. for spitting on someone who is giving him/her good honest service, I'd fire their a**.

...at least when you decide your date is a "jerk," you're getting a preview of what he's going to be like if you marry...from personal experience and hearing from my buddies who have married J girls, Japanese women totally change after marriage...why continue acting if their biggest mission in life (getting married) has been accomplished....(sigh)....

Posted in: Gay pride See in context

Homosexuality is not under attack here..it's simply the stupid way some knuckle heads have decided to celebrate it on behalf on an entire group of people...if I was gay, the last thing I'd want if a bunch of characters like these parading on my behalf and totally "uneducating" the public about me...

Posted in: Business caters to sexual needs of disabled See in context

The most pathetic thing I've seen in my life was a half-paralyzed middle aged Japanese guy on crutches coming out of the adult section of a Tsutaya carrying a stack of porn videos. He also had a breathing problem and made a snorting sound that attracted lots of attention...he dropped some of the videos (all porn with pics of high school girls on them) on the way to the register and had to be assisted by video store staff...creepy, yet sad...I guess here's the answer to his prayers...prostitution meets CSR...

Posted in: Gay pride See in context

Anyone can demonstrate anyway they want, but, I bet,if you asked these guys to put on suits/dresses and visit the Japanese parliament to ask for gay rights, I doubt they'd do it. It's way easier to dress like clowns and parade around, reinforcing the public's prejudices.

Posted in: Two arrested for running members-only prostitution website See in context

Prostitution is not the crime, but the facilitation of it. Back home, prostitution is legal; however, it is a crime to act an intermediary due to the usual abuse and exploitation,often of minors,involved.
