Maybe he should have taken his extra-large speakers in with a monster woofer and brought down the terribly designed Harajuku station.

Posted in: Are you OK with wearing a mask when you are out and about as a measure to protect yourself against the coronavirus? See in context

@LDY.

Me thinks you doth protest too much.

Isn't that the worst of sins? Maybe Japan should also implement a law like the one from Hong Kong so that people like me do not protest so much, because protesting is bad.

Not familiar with Shakespeare, eh? Has nothing to do with protests like in HK/elsewhere. It means you're trying very hard to prove to others and to yourself a point that nearly no one else believes. It carries the underlying meaning that your point may very well not hold water, and by extension, disingenuous.

Agree R.M. Whatever the outcome, hope Ootoya comes out of it in good condition. We really enjoy eating there!

Don't feel too sorry for the witch; she only turned herself in after she found out the baby's body had been found. She's only sorry she likely would have been caught if she hadn't turned herself in. RIH.

Posted in: Sumo wrestler offers to retire after after breaking COVID-19 restrictions See in context

As were all rikishi, Abi was told what he could/couldn't do during the pandemic and further during the tournament. He -chose- to violate the orders in an institution (sumo) known for its strict adherence to tradition and order. He put in his offer to resign out of spite, not out of any feeling of have dishonored his stable. Ok - - all that aside. Abi didn't know squat about sumo. A slapper/pusher, he knew the one technique, due to his having "fukai" arms. Yawn . . . boring.

Not enough info in the article or known yet, but that doesn't stop folks from posting about care giving, euthanasia, etc.

All three look, and no doubt are, totally oishii. Man, as soon as this pandemic is over, I'm headed back to Japan, where food and desserts can be enjoyed, unlike here in the States, where it's mostly boring and unchanging.

Posted in: Some people argue that mandating anyone to wear face masks during the pandemic is a violation of human rights. Do you agree? See in context

It's not a matter of rights; it's a matter of life or death (possibly the offender; probably others he/she could infect).

To those who choose not to wear a mask, even some in places where your local gov't requires it: You're not procreating, are you? We don't need your imbecility in the gene pool...

Punched her in the face (unfortunately leading to her death)? He didn't love her. Axxhxxx. Hope he does jail time for the rest of his days. RIP, dear lady.

Posted in: University student consulted with police before being killed by acquaintance See in context

J-police training manual: If one of those pesky citizens comes to you for help, please use the following list to determine if you should help them:

Does it interfere with your speed trap duties? If yes, decline request.

Does it interfere with your giving directions duties? If yes, decline.

Does it cause you to actually think about doing the right thing? If yes, decline.

Having lived in Japan for nearly 20 years, I have found the J-police to be as useful as a drop of water for a raging inferno.

Apparently, "stupid" has no threshold.

@rainyday: Just to make sure we're on the same page here, you know the Civil War wasn't fought primarily over the slavery issue, right? You do know that the southerners weren't the only ones with slaves, right? You do know that the northern industries did their best to keep the south from further and better industrializing, right? You did graduate from high school, right?

Love how the Japanese are always trying to come up with something new or different. This is especially true with wagashi, but we see it in other sweets, bakery items, drinks, etc. In the States, it's the same old crap, stuck on supermarket register racks or shelves; hope you like it, cuz that's all you have to choose from.

Falls under the category of The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves. As her biological parents (notice I didn't just say "parents"), I wonder how it feels to know that on your very best day, you're a POS?

Posted in: For shame: Why were people so hard on pachinko businesses that stayed open? See in context

Yes, they're run by yakuza and also by Koreans. Their staying open (the ones that did) was -purely- money motivated, with zero concern for people's health. Given the very close proximity of seats, row after row, they should have been forced to close during the State of Emergency. Geeez, if anyone could weather the shutdown period without suffering much/any financial stress, it would be the thugs who own/run pachinko shops.

Posted in: Fed-up residents seeking tidy toilets demand municipalities clean up their act See in context

Japanese consider outside their own home to be somebody else's problem and accept that it's going to be dirty (among other adjectives I could use here). IMO, those required to clean train station and/or public toilets probably, in the Japanese mind, rank right up there with the eta of days past.

"But, but . . . they're our precious, little darlings, who have been pampered from day 1.  Why, there's no way they can know the diff between right and wrong.  That happens, magically, when they turn 20 (currently)."

Uh huh.  Show of hands of all who believe that.  Humans have always learned actions have consequences growing up, good or bad, and the Japanese are no different.  The 3 subhuman pigs in the story, however, chose to ignore that and prove what badass cowards they are. 

Clearly it's time for Japan to lower legal adulthood to 18, but pls refer to my "But, but.." comment above.
