Posted in: South Korea beats Japan 2-0 in World Cup warm-up See in context

Why do I find myself cheering for Korea? I guess because of the same way I would not cheer for a three-legged horse. Although it is great to cheer for the underdog, I see firsthand how "politics" plays a role in who plays. Forget the name value and put in the best players. Look at Chono on the Giants, for example. Eight more years for Japanese soccer. 2018 World Cup: Japan's first 'real' chance to get the cup.

Posted in: Gay and lesbian Mardi Gras parade See in context

I am promoting the idea that there should be a "Heterosexual Pride" parade. Yes, I am proud to be a heterosexual. Let's hope gays and lesbians don't take offense to that. Also, if everyone were gay and lesbian I guess human civilization would cease to exist. But hey, I guess I will come across as a homophobe. Whatever. To each his or her own.

Who cares if they ask? As long as they have toilets on board.

Posted in: Should foreign residents have local voting rights? See in context

Change your citizenship to Japanese, gain the right to vote. If paying taxes were the issue, should foreign companies staff stationed in Japan have the right, too?

Posted in: Head of JFA calls J-League boring See in context

I watched my son's team play a team from Australia last Thursday night. They beat them 9-0. Lots of goals, lots of skill. They practice 6 days a week (Japan Youth). But I always tell them when they lose a game 1-0, like in hockey, you can't score if you don't shoot.

Posted in: Longevity of life a mixed blessing for Japanese See in context

In Canada last year the number of new immigrants equaled the number of babies born in the country for the first time. Get it? Man, does this country ever need to look in the mirror.

Posted in: Supermodel Ai Tominaga announces divorce from patissier husband See in context

A characterless face is easily forgotten. "I don't remember those others we interviewed, but I sure remember the guy with three noses! Man, he has a nose for good deals. Let's hire him!" Every year a new face hits the ads we see in every train, magazine, etc. Gotta have character to be a character.

Posted in: Doggie bag See in context

Hello?! Obviously this article was written by a Japanese person who seledom rubs shoulders with foreigners due to there "foreign concepts". I have taken leftovers home for 20 years here in Japan. Orchid64 hits the nail on the head about the smaller portions. There's nothing left to take home. I am always amazed when Japanese say North American portions are "too big". Truly, for anyone who has had a sandwich in Japan, the portions are usually too small. "Where's the beef?" Also, I think it comes from the custom of finishing everything on your plate in Japan, even if you don't like it.

I'm Canadian, my wife is Japanese.....my sons are....well I guess that's up to Japan to decide. Right. I am sure they will get on it right away. Whereas, Canada recognizes dual citizenship.

Posted in: Former porn star Ai Iijima found dead at Tokyo apartment See in context

Too bad they used the word "pornstar" in the headline. They could have used the word "entertainer". It is like focusing on the main negative aspect of her career. Respect for the dead and less sensationalism would be nice for a change.

Posted in: What's your recommendation for helping Crown Princess Masako recover fully from whatever is ailing her? See in context

What would Dr. Laura say? Divorce? No. Weed? No. Psychotherapy? No, but it might help find the solution. Let her divorce herself from her duties. She hates doing them. Let her get down and dirty doing volunteer work or let her speak candidly about what it is she really wants to do, short of exploding by the look on her face (what a mess).

Posted in: Two men arrested for possessing 108 cannabis plants in Fukuoka See in context

1 plant=personal, 180 plants=some kinda risky shit. 180,000,000 divided by 108= a shitload of money per. Truly inflated prices, or they based it on what the cops usually have to pay for it when they are off duty.

Posted in: Should sex education be taught in schools? See in context

Sex education is taught in Japan. Both of my sons (Canadian/Japanese) have gone through the elementary school system and were taught at school. It should be taught at home first, though. And I don't mean by demonstrating with a pillow! Simple, age-appropriate discussion. Also, let's not forget that morals should be taught, too. Something that is laughed at these days by lazy parents all over the world. Or they could just learn it by looking at porn on the net when the parents are "busy".
