@smithinjapan

I am wondering why some football fans and wannabe experts are gatekeeping when a sport become suddenly popular?

Why not just be glad that more people are starting to like the sport?

It was a “raid” but reporters know it first.

Japanese prosecutors are the epitome of corruption.

Posted in: More than one in three Japanese working women in survey would rather be housewives See in context

This must be so frustrating for Western feminists who decry the so-called lack of opportunities for women in Japan. "Why are only 1% of women in (insert employment role here)?!" etc etc.

That’s assuming the statistics for men is different. It’s highly probable that same percentage of men would rather stay at home, or do leisure, and not work 9-5.

Republicans and Trump lovers can blame it on anything, but the only reason there’s mass murder in USA is the guns.

Last time I checked, it was Russia that invaded another country.

A person trespassed your home, raped your children and killed your wife. Somehow, Mori believes it should also be your fault.

Overstaying visa shouldn’t be a crime especially if you have had paid taxes previously.

Posted in: Musk gives ultimatum to Twitter staff: Work intense, long hours or lose your job See in context

Staff works hard, Twitter grows, Musk's profit grows.

Meanwhile, the staff that worked hard got nothing in return.

Why should the staff work harder than what is necessary?

@nishikat

During their trial in Tokyo, Michael and Peter Taylor apologized and acknowledged guilt, saying they had been misled by Ghosn

Sure, they mean it wholeheartedly. Like all other confessions in Japan's "justice" system.

Posted in: Woman dies after falling out of moving car; driver arrested See in context

She definitely jumped. There’s no way a driver can teach that far onto the passenger seat, or open the door, let alone push someone while driving.

The other car that hit her can’t stop of it’s the expressway.

5.7million is enough to build about 8 brand new houses outside the city center in the Philippines BTW

No it's not. That will only build you the roof and the walls, no furnishings. Unless you're talking about shackles on a land you don't own, which BTW, 5.7M JPY isn't enough to buy.

Return to the Philippines first, before you talk like you an expert of a country you've never been in for the last 25 years.
