Posted in: 'Civil War' might be year's most explosive movie, but director thinks it's just reporting See in context

Pure fantasy.

LOL, yeah, it's a movie.

Still not sure if it will be shown here. Maybe on blu-ray in 5 months.

Posted in: 64-year-old man arrested for molesting 1-year-old girl in Kyoto park See in context

I actually don't know why people rush into conclusion.

When there are no actual details, people try to fill in the blanks.

The Japanese websites don't have any other info either.

People get arrested for touching a baby's leg, knee, or foot? He was arrested.

You obviously don't live in Japan. If someone "says" you did something you can be arrested and held for up to 20 days without being charged.

I don't think it's so much the time, but the content. Saw my son's YouTube history last week (he's 12) and it was some of the dumbest things I've ever seen, lol.

'Mad Max: Fury Road' was a fun movie, I'll probably check this one out too. Some sequels are welcome some (well most) are not.

Posted in: Complaints against foreign go-kart drivers increase in Tokyo See in context

With more than a dozen go-kart businesses in Tokyo, and the market size estimated to be worth 2-3 billion yen, the noisy lightweight vehicles won’t be disappearing from roads anytime soon.

Who came up with this guesstimate?

at ¥17,500 a head for 2 hrs, I could see those numbers.

Can't lie, I've ridden Karts in Thailand (closed track) and it was a blast. I do get the appeal but I don't even want to drive a car around Tokyo.

Posted in: Japan society on transgender issues to drop 'disorder' from name See in context

 Very right-wing extremist, to want to know what's going on with peoples' genitals.

Tell that to female athletes, women who want to change in locker rooms or use restrooms. Funny you never hear about trans men trying to join men's sports. So please stop with the "It's just people living their own private lives". And yes it's a disorder if it can be destroyed by aa few Yes/No questions.

Posted in: Hiroshima grapples with 'Oppenheimer' Oscars success See in context

*"Oh, oh, but, but but..." ***Yessss, I know** - Japan also committed horiffic war crimes (against my country's (UK) prisoners too as well as China and other places no doubt), ]

Sounds more like "Yes I know you made a valid point but, but ,but....."

It happened 80 years ago, ended the war and brought about the current Japan you know and love so much. Any person in their right mind, would have loved for it to have been another way, heck not even at all. Many people on here seem to think some comments are glorifying the bombs or something, that's not it. But the whole "Big Bad America/ Poor ol Japan" shtick gets annoying.

Posted in: Hiroshima grapples with 'Oppenheimer' Oscars success See in context

The amount of whataboutism and deflection of blame on the Japanese in the comments, and in every article vaguely related to the war, is saddening.

Then come on out and say that America brutally attacked a "perfectly peaceful country with absolutely no intention of taking over Asia."

Posted in: Smartphone makers bet on AI to boost sales See in context

I have a Galaxy s23 ultra but it should be getting a few if not all of the new AI features sometime soon (Japan is slooow with updates). Some seem pretty useful, like the "circle to search" and translation features. But there is no way I'm paying any subscriptions fees.

Posted in: Japan’s new ATMs automatically play anti-fraud videos to people talking on mobile phones See in context

sakurasukiToday  07:31 am JST

Less intrusive? That's more than notification! So in Japan if you are using phone while using ATM will be assumed that fraud activity is ongoing? It could be talking with co-worker, family, friend etc.

They'll update their ATM with additional screen for that video nationwide? How much will that be?

No clue why all the thumbs down. You didn't say anything that didn't make sense.

Her contract was finished, they just didnt renew it. If she was wrongfully fired, she would have sued what 3-4 years ago. No fan of Disney but this is kinda dumb.

Posted in: Netflix subscribers jump despite price hikes See in context

Don't get the hate for Netflix, Many of their original movies are better than most stuff in theaters. Documentaries, stand-up specials, a few pretty good series and for (gasp)$22 a month. I still need to look into a vpn for the US reigion, if there's anyone here who has it, is the content that different?

Posted in: New Zealand withdraws bill allowing 16-year-olds to vote in local body elections See in context

If you're going to parody my post, at least try to base it on fact. Right-wing teachers? I wish there were more than just a handful!

Or....Or, they just teach the subject they are supposed to. Let the left/right parents screw their own kids up themselves.

Also, I've been 16 (I'm not old, not young but not like an old man or anything. I'm still cool). I would have voted for which canidate was better at Street Fighter.

Posted in: Foreign-born Miss Japan sparks debate on what it means to be Japanese See in context

Not that I care too much. But was a bit of a shock to see her picture & Miss Japan. But reading through the comments made me remember an African guy I met a while back. Asked him where he was from and he said Uganda but "Im Japanese", Still makes me smile to remember how serious he was. Not saying anything bad, but a 190cm 100kg African dude saying he's Japanese just makes me chuckle. He's a good guy but I still joke with him about it.

The 1.3-megapixel camera has a focal length of 3.2mm and a fixed aperture of 2.8. The camera comes with a built-in magnet so you can take photos anywhere you want. 

Hopefully it makes a loud shutter sound.

The Osprey is a great aircraft as far as capabilities, but with around 40 accidents since 2008(I think), they really need to get those things in working order and stop pushing them so hard.
