Posted in: SDF member arrested for beating teenage daughter See in context

If you've been in Japan for a while, you'll know that parents basically pay for all their kids' mistakes. There is no real punishment for them. "Kids" get away with murder here, and the parents have to apologize and pay up. We don't know how bad the girl is anyway, not enough details. overboard, probably but "slammed head into desk" and " not seriously injured" don't add up.

I'm still not sure what they plan to accomplish, it's like they didn't hear who's in the white house now.

"I hope (the new dress code) will help students choose what they want to wear without necessarily disclosing their gender identity," he said.

, students can freely choose whether to wear skirts or slacks as well as ties or ribbons to go with blazers regardless of their gender. 

Ummm....good luck with that, I guess.

Ok, then put the history of Japan's Imperial Military in your textbooks. Can't only play the victim all the time.

That's kinda the whole appeal to "smart"phone. You can play games, watch videos and... Read. It would be pretty stupid to buy a 8-900 dollar phone to just text and" surf the net". Apple screwed up, that's it.

What's wrong. He's a guy with some status talking about something that's wrong. No need to pounce on'em

The last part about the universities and stuff threw me tho.

Posted in: Trump sweeps into Washington with a wave and a salute See in context


Well, with all the businesses he owns worldwide, built an empire and was able to turn the political system on its head and win, millions would think otherwise.

C'mon man, Trump casinos, Trump airlines , Trump University. As a super rich buisness owner he can afford to go off on stupid ideas. You want him taking chances like that as president?

Millions think differently and millions think the same way.

People are going crazy for a reason, look at his cabinet picks. We all know that one man doesn't do it all. But this team he's putting together doesn't look promising either.

I changed from HULU jp to Netflix jp. For me the most interesting thing is the number of stand-up comedy specials they have, the jp subtitles are fun to read too.

The home/portable concept is really cool though. But every launch: Mario, Smash Bros. and Zelda...again. Just more of the same.

10 bucks for an infinite runner with a Mario Theme? I really don't understand Nintendo, everything has been rehashed for 30 years. Nostalgia is one thing, this is getting old.

Posted in: Samsung woes deepen over Galaxy Note 7 See in context

Man, this really sucks. I was looking forward to getting one. I love my note 4 cause of the S pen and the new features looked great. But this rushing to beat Apple has cost them. Hopefully (for me at least) Japan won't reject their future phones.

Man this really sucks. The note edge was my first Note. I really love the phone and I'm looking forward to getting this one. Hopefully everything gets straightened out and it still comes to Japan.

I actually want to check this out, most super hero movies have been crap. Batman v Superman was trash. I hope this one is at least entertaining.

Posted in: Hiroshima unhappy atomic bomb park is Pokemon Go site See in context

I see the pluses and minuses, well more possible minuses.

More people will visit the park (maybe), find a plaque or a monument and learn something.

Or they may walk by grab some pokeballs and bounce.

Worse case, are the little jerks who will stay at a gym, leaving trash and cigarette butts.

I didn't read every comment, but "head in the sand" mentality is the perfect wording.

If the doctor cleared him for release, then he's cleared for the noose too, right?

Posted in: The wait is over for Pokemon Go fans in Japan See in context

I downloaded it this morning because of all the fuss in the office. Seems pretty casual to me. Had the game on and my phone in my pocket it vibrated and said there was a pokemon in the conbini. There it was on top of the bread.

But I can tell that there will be some accidents.

Nintendo bringing out new "old" tech again.

But I do agree that Tecmo Super Bowl should have been added, as well as Contra. The pick up where you left off feature is a nice touch too.

Man, people have to be spoon-fed common sense here.

Actually, people walking around with their heads down seems to be the norm, even when walking UP the stairs.

David Blue:

I was stationed in Yokosuka for 2 years, I can tell you that there are more than a few stupid people, but like Randomnator said, they dont last long. And a lot more people walking around with visas working here are a lot more dangerous.


Not picking a fight, but what problems have you had with any military?

But if sometime in the future the Japanese people come together and vote all U.S military bases out of Japan, I'm sure as heck not sticking around too long after that.

"You pointed out something we do wrong" you can't come in. That's it. I'm serious if this country would get out of that "Right way, Wrong way, Japanese way" way of thinking they could might learn something. Dolphin has high mercury levels, you know what doesn't About 100% of the things that regular people eat here. Eat good food and stop clubbing dolphins to death. Not a hard choice really. But "This is Japan!!" and "It's a tradition!!" is all they say. It's a shame really.
