Viron at Tokyo station, Paul has decent pain au chocolat. As for baking baguette home good luck! But the prices are so high for a baguette, it costs 110Y in France and around 300Y in Japan ouch...

Yup jail time would be a bit harsh... 500,000Yen fine is appropriate and losing his job too.

Posted in: Have Japan’s anti-smoking laws gone too far? See in context

Great discussion points here. I sometimes wonder if the pro-smokers are the same people as the pro-whalers? Both disrespect life and are completely self-serving in their "reasons".

I think you forgot to say that "we" (I am a smoker, dirty dirty killing selfish smoker) also are racist, pro death, homophobic, or whatever else... are you out of your mind Ranger_Miffy2 ??? I am shocked from what I read from most anti-smokers... You are a menace to society all of you, what do you want to jail us? Put us in camp? Ban us from cities? Hitler would not have had any better ideology than you guys. Thanks you stressed me up I need a smoke!

Please, kill yourself as you feel like, it's your rights to do so, but make sure not a single whiff of stench comes my way in the process. It's my right to enjoy clean air.

You probably do not live in Tokyo, if so please let me know where you've found clean air.

Congrats to the happy couple! I think the most horrifying thing is that if you are a gay couple you can only marry at Disney, because to be honest that kinda sucks but better than nothing I guess.

You can pick any western celebration they have in Japan and the result is the same, they take the spirit away to turn it into a capitalist/commercial event: Halloween=no trick or treats, Xmas=couple date night, Valentine=chocolate industry booster, they even have thanksgiving...

Posted in: Boy, 11, brings gun to class in Utah See in context

In this debate over gun control, pro-guns always use 3 arguments. In the name of liberty/freedom I can carry a gun, to protect myself or a gun does not kill it is the hand that hols the gun that kills. (Sounds like perfect propaganda/marketing/speech inspired by the NRA) The last one (even though I consider the 2 firsts as non-sense strikes me the most. What does it mean "it's not the gun that kills people...?" Try to attack a school with a knife (happened in China last week no fatal casualties) or a baseball bat I am pretty sure you'll have less casualties. The hand still want to kill in both cases but the gun actually kills much more efficiently... So even if the "hand that holds the gun" represents the killer's will you can't kill as much with a bat, knife, fork, your fist or whatever than you would with a gun, rifle, shotgun, M-16 or whatever fire arm American citizens seem to be so found of. So guns kill as any other thing could kill but they kill much more person in the US than any other thing, in 2011 there were 12,664 murders in the US. Of those, 8,583 were caused by firearms. So off course 4,081 murders were done by knifes, hands, other. But you need your hands, knives and tools in daily life much more than you need a gun. And last but not least guns are for pussies...

Posted in: The needs of early English phonetic instruction in Japan See in context

"Harro! Do you speak Engrish?" That makes their own identity when traveling, I will be sad if their accent disappear... Same as the Spanish, French, German and Italian... Only Scandinavians sound almost native when they speak. Why bother on pronunciation? To understand and make yourself understood should be the focal point in teaching/learning a language. And for pronunciation well the only way is to travel and try to stay as long as possible in the country you want to learn the language from. Learn Japanese in Japan make sense and is easier, should be the same when you learn English, Spanish, French or whatever you want.

Posted in: Why Japanese people are comfortable with nakedness See in context

While sexuality is not encouraged in most Western religions, Japan’s native Shinto religion is more open-minded.

That's probably why every year on sexual activity surveys Japan ranks last...

Posted in: Hollande vows to 'eradicate' anti-Semitism in France See in context

Putain Hollande! There is at maximum around 500,000 Jewish in France who has a population of 65,000,000 (less that 1% of the population). Is that another way to distract people's attention from real issues i.e. employment, crisis, poverty security, etc... There is no anti-Semitism issue in France for the simple reason that you can say anything about this community without risking a trial or being call antisemite. They should care about the Muslims more as it is France second religion and a way larger and offended (especially by the media) community than the Jewish. But well we know who the French government is rolling for!

my iPad 2 is in a keyboard case which also has an extra battery to plug in the iPad, iPhone, iPod and charges giving extra hours, with the iPad 2 that means another 50% or 5 hours. The case from Amazon was only about ¥5,000.

Sounds good, isn't too big to carry though?

kakukakushikajika - If you are playing games on your phone for 4 hours, I'd say that battery power is the least of your problems... LOL that made me smile thanks, but actually I travel a lot and when I get bored reading I use my phone for distraction and run out of battery quite quickly (btw I loved Napoleon Dynamite)

Steve Jobs:

“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it.”

“I’m as proud of what we don’t do as I am of what we do.”

“Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”

“We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.”

“The cure for Apple is not cost-cutting. The cure for Apple is to innovate its way out of its current predicament.”

“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”

“Real artists ship.”

Yes he is dead, so is innovation at Apple...

Posted in: Armstrong facing big financial hit over doping ban See in context

Well I think there is more than 1 man behind that story and he is kind of a scapegoat. How him alone could have arrange a doping system for the all US Postal team. how convenient for his team mates to say "wasn't me was Lance" It involves doctors, sponsors, team directors, etc... and also nobody's really clean in that sport, why him, and especially why now? What is the point, who will benefit from it? I still think that somewhat he is a unique champion who worked hard and probably did drugs as 99.9% of people who ever won the Tour de France... (PS I am French)
