Posted in: VR amusement park opens in Tokyo's Shibuya district See in context

I'd feel more comfy in a star trek style holodeck than a Sword Art VR because of not knowing if you'd be able to wake and pull the machine off. I've had numerous occasions where I slept with my MP3 player on and had a multiple nested dream (within dreams) where I kept turning it off but it still played. Really bad if you're dreaming/VRing about using the restroom. With the holodeck, all senses and movement are intact...but that's a future further off. Green screens can do background and some foreground, but the interactee only sees green sheets (the camera and computer show it to viewers). Forcefields are in their infancy (for objects and people that can be touched). A giant hamster ball for 360 movement and a full VR suit for all senses (only savoury taste cannot yet be simulated - so sorry, no cheese or meat) would be a modern compromise. Electro-vibratory pulses can do all senses...

The psych screening for the fans, not the people who wanna dress however. ;)

Swift Justice, jimizo, et al:

Not sure what country you're from, but Japan is not the only country that portrays females this way. Have you seen sports illustrated? How many times do they show sporty men in skimpy Speedos (hint: its mostly women...in skimpy outfits, not Speedos). In either case, its the culture. Males and females should be able to dress however they wish without being attacked. If I wanted to wear a care bear suit in town, that is my right and I shouldn't have to be pummeled with rocks or stabbed by fans or people who think fur is an abomination unto Thor. A psychological screening may help, if it doesn't prove illegal.

Instead of Japan getting rid of Article 9, they should be advocating for it across the world for it to be adopted. The US, for example, should definitely implement it. How many countries invaded and people have they killed?

Perhaps the Whisper of Love would be best ported to a home-based personal VR console. It might be awkward in public.

So the world holds many thousands of nukes that can strike targets thousands of miles away, but no one has the ability to stop one? All sword and no shield? Come on, people. Common sense...

The govt of Japan should make a mixtape video of all the apologies over the years - datestamped - and air it on korean tv every time it is requested. It should show the atrocities committed by the south korean govt against its own people in an encrypted form that south korean programmers can decode and air in multiple hidden locations to bypass south korean censorship.

Disillusioned:

All parliamentary systems do this that I know of, from Canada to Germany. Presidential systems are worse in that the president can't even have confidence vote against him to push out of office.

If they can have the unrated version, why can't they have the extra rated?

Allowing so will give parents and older children watching with their parents more options...and give the directors an extra boost in cash from the more "clean" viewers.

Are we talking bad words and nudity or just anything goes but the f word and absolute gore?

M3M3M3:

"Despite being full citizens, children face tremendous discrimination in our societies. They are completely disenfranchised."

I agree they should be let in, but children are not full citizens. They cannot vote or do other activities afforded adults. I think the youngest full citizens are in some British territories where the voting age is 16. As such, they are disenfranchised in many democracies (so called?).

Posted in: American-made live-action TV series adaptation of anime 'Cowboy Bebop' in production See in context

Why do producers feel the need to change the medium (anime to live action)? Its fine like it is. Heck, Disney even remade its beauty and the beast into live action too...why? Do we need to have an anime Law & Order or Stargate (same shows, not inspired by)? Do we need to have a Muppet News at 7? Original ideas people, please...

Here's an idea. Allow parents and students to decide regular school or cram school, but not both. Limit or eliminate homework. Dezombify the kids.

Against minors was addressed, but we need to look at the other end of the spectrum too. At some point, we lose the mental capacity to consent. This can occur at age 85 or 27, depending on mental illness. Should not every sxual encounter they have, whether they wanted it or not, be dealt with the same way as we deal with minors?

There is a loophole about staying in the imperial family. It only says that female members become commoners if they marry. What's to stop them from shacking up and having a life boyfriend? Keep the perks and get additional benefits to the irritation of the powers that be.

If Japan can have a self-defence force, it can have an iron dome (as used in Israel). Instal defensive anti-missile batteries on the tallest towers in major cities, "boxes" strategically placed on the coast, etc. That is more in line with defence than sending troops overseas.

Female-only viewing... How's that sexism working out? That's as silly (and dare I say borderline illegal) as having a blacks-only viewing for a Tyler Perry movie.

I believe one of his arguments was that it's not proportional. Unless he had been found guilty for groping people for 2 years straight, it does not justify imprisonment. Since we don't have true reciprocal punishments (ie the convicted groper's punuihment to be groped), then monetary fines or community service should be given. Another takeaway is that in most countries a person merely accused will have their names in the news, but not the victim. I say innocent until proven guilty and no names until conviction to preserve good name and avoid slander.

Posted in: Japanese men take out 'groper insurance' against false accusations See in context

I wonder what the punishment is for false accusations. Should they have to spend the same time the falsely accused was in prison? Should there be a more actual eye for an eye / reciprocal punishment (ie the groper's punishment is for him to be groped himself)?

Posted in: Trump offers help on London attacks; repeats need for travel ban See in context

Trump could still put through a travel ban that the courts can't touch. Ban everyone - courts can't say racist or anti-Islam as it would effect the entire world, thus no supreme court justice could say anything other than "extreme, but constitutional." I wouldn't be surprised if potential terrorists came from UK, Germany, or any other former safe country anyway (though I can gather what phrase they'll use when they start killing...and it won't be "Odin is great!"
