"But I don’t want to be called a marriage. That’s reserved for heterosexual couples."

Taj put it very well, but I think you need to get over yourself and mature a little.

Everything evolves and changes, you can't stop the tide. Nor should you deny some people the privelidges that you afford.

Posted in: Precision cancer therapy works in 3/4 of patients: study See in context

Big Pharma raking in the bucks once again. Eat healthy food & learn to accept the things life throws at us. Big Pharma can't make money from that. We ALL have cancer at some point in our lives, it's the natural state of the body expelling toxins. Most cancers will recede in time if left alone. It's the slash/burn/poison that is killing people.

Posted in: American blogger makes more extensive apology for suicide video See in context

Free speech without censorship is a priviledge we enjoy in a free society. If we want to censor another's free speech then we are no longer free.

I did not see the video, but from what I can gather from the description, any laughter/giggling was due to a normal human reaction when shocked/embarrassed.

If you don't like the content, turn away. And be glad that you have the freedom to do so.

Posted in: Part from KLM plane taking off hits car in Osaka See in context

I flew KLM from Kansai to Schippol about 12 years ago. I recognised the plane as the same one that regularly flew Sydney to Schippol in the late eighties; it wasn't a new plane then.

I wonder if this is still the same one?

Posted in: Japanese news program criticized for translating Lady Gaga’s protest message as 'I hate Trump' See in context

"If a single word has two meanings in English, each definition is likely to be a separate word in Japanese."

This seems to suggest that Japanese has a larger voucabulary than English. It is a misleading sentence.

Posted in: Dentsu's 'power harassment hell' See in context

From talking to my Japanese friens, it seems that one of the problems seems to be that no one can leave until everyone has finished their work for the day. So people spend endlless hours waiting until they can go home. A dreadful waste of manpower.

Posted in: Actress Mika Mifune files property division suit following divorce from rocker Joji Takahashi See in context

I have friends, a couple, who met when he was 12 and she in her late twenties. More than 30 years later they are still together. Another couple of friends met at high school, he was her teacher, she was 15. They have been together nearly 40 years now. So please stop making assumptions about the age difference.

Posted in: Woman dies after being hit by 4 trucks on Shiga expressway See in context

Unfair to blame the lorry drivers for not stopping - we don't know how large the trucks were and some can take a long time to stop if carrying heavy loads. Hitting the brakes too hard would cause them to jack-knife and that would cause a nasty pile-up. Roadtrains can take a long long distance to stop, up to a kilometre.

Those who drive only cars know only the stopping distance of a car. Try being on a 2-wheeled vehicle for example.

And it was at night - no-one expects a person to be walking around on an expressway - there was low visibility and no time to react.

Just be relieved that her actions resulted in only her death, not countless others.

No one has yet commented on what it felt like to lose her hair. There was serial cutter on the London Underground in the eighties. As a result and because my hair is a metre long, I keep it safely to my side when on public transport. To lose it this way would be akin to rape!

I was told about this technology 5 years ago, told to not bother with solar panels, to wait until technology was improved.

Glad I waited and didn't cover my roof with ugly solar panels.

They live in a quiet area, they want it to stay that way. It would be different when moving to a new are, they are right to complain. Find a noisy area for this facility. My criteria of looking for a home in Japan is no schools or the like nearby!

Nothing wrong with an open window in December at night - it's called fresh air.

Maybe it's more important to ask why a 5 year-old child was awake at that time of night.

I knew a girl who did hostess work. She cried before she went to work, she cried when she came home. She hated it - and the men that came to the bar. She did it for the money, then married a lovely Aussie man who took her away from all of that. Now she's happy.

Posted in: Woman dies after choking on 'mochi;' 10 others hospitalized See in context

Every year I wonder how, after seven or eight decades of life in Japan, people do not take heed from the annual death toll and chop up their motchi before eating.

I nearly choked on New Year motchi when I was in my thirties, I chop it now, even though I still have all my own teeth.

On a 1988 tour of Finland, Lemmy was asked by one journalist why he had kept going for so long.

"We're still here," he replied, "because we should have died a long time ago but we didn't."

"Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil. Going with the flow, it's all the game to me." Ace of Spades, Motorhead
