Try to get a Saison credit card and you will experience discrimination. There are many other companies in Japan that will give you a card, but Saison, Nooooooo...

Has Jan ever played American Grid Iron or served in the military? I am wondering how they formed their opinion?

Trolling an actress online is only something a lowlife would do. It is a movie. You watch it and move on. This isnt the first time that these fake fans harrassed a Star Wars actor. They tore up Ahmed Best too.

If they impeach Trump, they also need to impeach Pence as well. The LAST thing we want is to have a crazy Evangelical nut in the WH.

Posted in: 10 times Japanese train passengers aren’t so polite See in context

"Using your phone near the priority seats (154 points)

Passengers are asked to refrain from talking on their phones on Japanese trains, regardless of which part of the carriage they’re in. Using your phone to fire off emails or read SoraNews24, though, is acceptable…unless you’re sitting in or standing near the priority seats, in which case you’re asked to power down your phone entirely.

This rule comes from concerns that the signals sent by mobile phones may interfere with pacemakers of other medical devices, whose bearers are likely to be sitting in the priority seats due to their health issues. But with smartphone use being such a ubiquitous part of rail travel in Japan, many people forget, or simply don’t bother to, shut their phones off."

This rule is stupid and not based on any evidence. If the signals from phones affected pacemakers, people with pacemakers would be dropping dead in Shinjuku, or Shibuya all day long. Just getting in to a train doesn't make the signal different.

So according to Dentsu and the judges the young lady's life was only work 500,000 Yen. Nice.

The CEO should be forced to resign.

Posted in: Japanese car rentals include stickers that read: 'A foreigner is driving' See in context

All rental cars have a license plate that starts with わ. Is that not enough?

Also I have lived in Okinawa and their driving skills are not on par with what I see in Tokyo everyday.

The people who sold the rights to make the movie are not butt hurt over it. If you want to choose who to cast, buy the rights and throw down the money for production yourself.

Posted in: Video games linked to sexism in teenagers: study See in context

Confirmation bias much? So there are zero other contributing factors?

What's next? Teens with legs are more mobile than the one's without legs.

Ppppssssstttt.... Assertions are not facts. You need evidence that shows video games have a direct effect on sexism in teens.

Posted in: Life's no hoot for owls in Tokyo cafes, activists say See in context

This article is written by someone who has no idea about owls. owls are stationary most of the time. They basically only fly to catch prey. In owl cafes they are fed correctly. Kept out of the harsh environment. They are not abused. The owls have been around humans since they were in eggs. They also have imprinted with their humans so they see them as family.

Posted in: Japan to conduct first major survey on racism: report See in context

I think banning any kind of speech is a slippery slope. Remember freedom of speech means you can't be arrested for speech. It doesn't mean your free of the consequences of shoot your mouth off to the wrong person.

Posted in: Sony enters virtual reality race with PlayStation VR headset See in context

Sony is infamous for letting their new technology flop. My PSP and Sony PS Vita are gathering dust. So far I have not seen one new game for VR that is any good. Everything so far has been gimmicky and looks boring to be Frank. I will wait to see if they release anything good before I drop my 40k yen on it.

Other town hunt them out to sea,” said Sangen. “It seems that if people can’t see when animals are killed then there is no controversy. In our town children grow up dreaming of becoming a whaler.

This guy seems to completely miss the point.

His comments show his lack of international experience. It is laughable. Even in Japan the current generation of people change jobs for better opportunity. This guy is destined to fail because of his lack of cultural knowledge.

Jar Jar Binks comments are vapid, cliche, and lack class. This is a cool thing for ANA to do for Star Wars fans. Is that flying domestically or overseas. Since Disney has a big presence in Japan I wonder if they will take the opportunity to expand on the Theme parks here with Star Wars themed areas?

Posted in: Singer Gackt claims he was victim of discrimination in Paris hotel See in context

*The reason that Gackt is not a reliable source is because you have no other means of verifying the truth.

That doesn't make Gackt an unreliable source. It simply means that it's an unverified account.*

Your using an Argument from Authority Logical Fallacy. One source without any way to get the other side is an unreliable source. Can you name an "unverified account" that is considered a reliable source?

Restaurants and hotels have VIP areas, non-smoking, smoking, reservations areas. That is common around the world. And there is absolutely nothing in this article to suggest that this was the case.

Going to go with Occam Razor on this one.

Very one sided report. Unless this gentleman speaks French or had someone to translate it for him, he was just asserting his own bias on to the unknown personality of another person.

BTW, restaurants sometimes have reservations for certain tables.

Posted in: New 'Star Wars' most anticipated movie for 2015: survey See in context

Writing posts about how much you dislike the Star Wars prequals is so cliche. This is going to be the biggest movie of all time. This movie is going to influence society going forward just as Star Wars has done for decades. Sitting back and dumping on it when you yourself have not accomplished anything is disrespectful and shows a lack of understanding of the cultural inluence that this film series has had.

As I read over in the Facebook group Japan Atheist Society countries a majority of countries are secular in founding and nature. So when you are saying a specifically Christian country you should give an example @probie
