Frog legs are a stable part of the diet where I am from. Couldn't begin to count how many I have caught and eaten.

Posted in: Obama vows not to campaign for opponents of new gun laws See in context

Hahaha. Who does he think he is fooling? He is toxic. No candidate wants him campaigning for them. They are all trying to see who can out-distance themselves the most from him.

Posted in: 12 Pacific countries seal huge free trade deal See in context

Don't believe the hype!! This article is horribly misleading. Japan won major concessions allowing it to continue heavily restricting its market and keeping tarrifs on beef, dairy products, and rice imports. They were not eliminated to the extent this article states. You will see no material change in the quantity of these commodities and their prices in Japan except for deflationary pressures from the demographic structure.. All the "Stop TPP" signs in Nagano prefecture will rot and decay before you see any material change in Japan for these commodities due to the TPP deal.

Posted in: Netflix streaming service heading for Japan in autumn See in context

Don't believe the hype. DMM.com has offered a streaming service for a couple years now. Selection is a joke just like Hulu Japan. The old guard and studio content owners are not going to relinquish control of the cash cow that is the Japan market. Don't expect much beyond Netflix's original video content.

I remember well the Great Butter Shortage of 2008. Took signficant measures to procure the supply needed for a successful holiday season baking and cooking at our place.

Posted in: Abe's new plan to beat deflation: more baseball teams See in context

Only 20 million plus attendance? LA Angels has more than 3.2 billion, LA Dodgers has more than 2.8 billion, Yankees has more than 4.2 billion attendance a year

@toshko, millions not billions in attendance. LA Angels 3.2bn / 81 home games = 39.5mil in attendance per game.

On a side note, I am really not looking forward to the pocket full of 1-yen coins I will invariably end up with due to this change. (pun intended)

Posted in: BOJ board member says Japan can weather sales tax hike See in context

For those out there that believe the consumption tax increase will lead to a reduction in Japan's natonal debt, please let me interest you in an investment in ocean front property in the state of Arizona in the USA. From the front porch you can see the sea.

Posted in: As Abe weighs labor reform, IBM emerges as test case for firing workers See in context

How is that the western banks and securities firms/dealers can cut huge numbers of staff at minute's notice but IBK and Ricoh can't? Are there separate sets of labor laws for these industries?

Posted in: Gov't considers setting clock ahead by two hours See in context

It should be moved 2 hrs. I lived at the same lattitude as a child and it didn't get dark in my country until after 9pm in the summer. Getting light in Japan at 3:30am and being dark at 6:30pm in the summer is crazy.
