Oh my. Totally agree. She is not funny in Japanese unless you like slap stick Japanese style, and her American simple debut was non-laughable.

So she hasn't broke the US comedy market yet? Quite a lot of competition in the fat and annoying genre.

Do you really see police checking gaijins' resident cards and their wallets at stations? I have been here 46 years and have never seen that.

Only have been checked for airplanes. Nothing with Shinkansen

Statistically ZERO cases in a population as massive as Tokyo. Things are going well. Go To Travel will start up giving a big boost to the tourism economy which will tide them over until they let foreign tourists in sometime next year. Slow and steady improvements.

Yes, correctly stated.

That “foreign source” for Delta could well have been Japanese returning from abroad.

It was not. It was a UK National, just as with lambda come which came from A South American.

I’m down in Kyoto right now and it’s the lack of foreign tourists hitting folks here more. it’s the lack of foreign tourists hitting folks here more.

More likely, it is the lack of Japanese Tourist that is really hitting Kyoto hard. Japanese tourists are the bread and butter for most cities in Japan not foreigner tourists.

Quite true on Japanese tourist as the meat and butter. Heading there Friday for 5 days.

When you set up travel plans, you do not beg for the coupons. They are given to you plainly and simply. The bottom parts are filled with time stamps and destinations. They are not randomly used,

You can however if not really needing extra money, talk to restaurant owners where you travel, ask them some questions about family and friends, and if there are people in dire straights you can give them the coupons.

You can also use them in convenient stores and pick up items and hand them out to street people, if they will accept them. There is a lot of pride here and people do not want to look poor nor accept stuff. If you got the lingo down as myself and friends do it is much easier.

Aloha and share the wealth if you can. Being jealous and griping is not the answer.

I personally have no clue as to what "age of majority" is. Sounds British.

But legal age for drinking or smoking in America is 21. States had to change their laws on that if they wanted Federal Highway Funds...I think.

But legal age for sex, domination and other such issues are all state controlled.

America is not a democracy. It is a republic. All states are sovereign, and that is interesting.

Atlas is not the right WIND of Marx at all. It is showing that those that want to put down entrepreneurship and creation of what is good for the society and not to be spread around for those incapable of doing for themselves is absurd.

Xi in China is now killing freedom of growth and prosperity trying to distribute wealth and it will be his demise. He should hand out debit cards for his bank accounts.

I shrug at your disinterest.

I prefer capitalism. I love billionaires and wish them luck. The more money you have the more your life becomes a jail ... We need brilliant people to keep society running openly and to create jobs.

Who is John Galt. Don't any of you billionaire haters read? Try reading Atlas Loss and other Rand novels.

At Mr. Zichi:


Your link is quite good and in simple layman's terms. It does not go beyond the four main plates and go into depth with the minor plates which have much more significant effects on daily earth tremors. It is a good site though. If you delve more deeply you will find other sites with fascinating information on the minor plates. California often publishes large amounts of data on the San Andreas minor plates. Japan does as well as it is a 360 degree area where Cali is just facing the ocean on one side.

Keep studying. Enjoy your posts Sir!

@Mr. Zichi. There are a lot of plates. The minor quite more important than the major. All interacting and quite amazing actually.

Um God, this is misinformation.

Why does this JT site continuously promote false information about all sorts of things especially scientific and medical information. Shameless and shamefull. Your staff needs some science experts, not people with a GED to try to fix the glitches.

Dosages of all medications should be bassed on generl health and of course weight. Many children in America under 11 weigh more than most adults in Japan. Give them the standard doses based on body mass, not age.
