Posted in: S Korean cosmetics firm boss quits over YouTube video praising Japan See in context

I was wondering why SK are so fired up by this event, then I read that 20% of South Korea's GDP is from Samsung, the country and the rest of the people exist pretty much to support Samsung's economic activity, it's little wonder that Japan's move is taken as "personal" to most Koreans, we're literally threatening their means to life.

South Korea is such a pitiful country, even the North isn't that pitiful.

Posted in: Police arrest another Chinese man over 7pay fraud See in context

So, we had Chinese neighbors where we live before, wife was often asked to purchase diapers, and was given 1000yen as "reward".

I'm just guessing here, but I think the modus operandi is like this. So the hack was done by entities in China and they wechat it to friends of friends of friends who happen to be in Japan, ask them to buy stuffs with the hacked account, with rewards of course. If you think about it, Chinese in Japan are sleeper cells (maybe involuntary) for hacker groups in China.

Posted in: 'No Japan' banners scrapped in Seoul district after outcry See in context

Japan moves a finger, whole South Korea throw a fit. This only shows how much influence Japan has over South Korea. I don't like Abe, didn't vote for his party last election, but I like that they don't back down over their decision on this matter.

At least we know that Trump has not dipped any of his tiny fingers in the games industry's $135B value, and probably in too deep in the guns and military industry.

The study, by consulting firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, found more working-age men start businesses than women in every country except Vietnam, Mexico, Indonesia and the Philippines.

That's because in these countries, it's either start your own business or stay dirt poor all your life, no man to rely upon, no government to rely upon.

Posted in: Do robots and AI lead to more job creation than they destroy? See in context

Yes and no. Yes for those who are willing to learn about mechanic, robot training, etc. No if you prefer menial work. But it's a mistake to just leave people out of this advancement, which is why I'm a supporter of basic income. When robots do a lot of things, that leave us to do the creative things, actually living instead of working to survive

Posted in: 56% oppose amending Constitution under Abe gov't: poll See in context

Aso just said that with LDP winning majority of seats, that means the country supports tax raise.

This is a weakness or weirdness in Japan's democracy, people vote for the party without supporting their policies.

Posted in: What is your understanding of the expression 'cultural appropriation?' See in context

The definition of cultural appropriation is that of dominant culture adopting minor culture. I think that anyone who sees that as bad, think that their own culture as superior/dominant that they don't need to learn from others. Afraid to be painted as racist, they hide behind their narrow mindedness. You can never do wrong if you don't do anything after all.

77% either don't care what happens, or just know LDP will win again, or just too busy voting on who's next number one girl of AKB, SKE, WHAteVER.

More foreigners coming here and refusing to observe the local culture beyond anime, kimono, samurai, and oooh exotic Japan. Japan is not your theme park, even in a theme park you have to abide to rules and customs.

Posted in: Do people think about their retirement money on the assumption they'll live to 100? I don't think ordinary people do. People have to think now about whether or not they've got any money. See in context

Just got big bonus last month, you want to know where it goes Aso ? 100% into saving! I also read that 30% of Japanese also save their big bonus this year, You and BOJ can keep dreaming about that 2% inflation, lol lol lol.

Also, I read that top government officials got paid highest in history this year! What the hell are we paying you for dude ? You and your cronies won't get my vote in the coming election on the 21st for sure.

SK irritates and irritates, Japan said sorry and sorry, now that it retaliates, SK makes a scene. Sick of SK's bullying tactics by playing victim.

I thought one of the requirements for a city to host the olympics is that the city has adequate infrastructure in the first place ? If not then it's out of the selection list ... well IOC doesn't stand for Internationally Organized Corruption for no reason.

Posted in: Do you think summits like G20 and G7 ever achieve anything tangible? See in context

In the age of internet when they can teleconference at ANYtime, from ANYwhere, these "leaders" instead choose to fly all over the world, waste fuel, release CO2, disrupting a city, etc. They can talk and pat themselves in the back about "the good things they're going to do and change for the better", but they're certainly not making any effort to lead by examples, and their actions are the opposite of what they preach.

Don't know about konbini, but ate at a restaurant served by both a Japanese and a Vietnamese girl, the Vietnamese girl had a genuine smile and so-so Japanese, while the Japanese girl is in her usual precanned-polite speech with a can't be bothered face.

Yeah, the finance minister Aso just told the country this week that nenkin isn't enough and that people should start saving for retirement! That would definitely help increase household spending.

If you want to do Graffiti at least be creative and "fuse" it with the background, not some scrawl like you're a 2 year-old. I hope they force this guy to clean up and barred him from entering Japan for 10 years.

Posted in: Should there be an age limit for driving licenses? See in context

imho, shorter validity for high-risk groups, and the retest should be more than just watching a video. I just got my license, everything I learn at driving school, I never see practiced on the road by other drivers. The driving school system is just a joke, a money scam.
