Isn't it a good thing they're going down? Tell the 'lamenting managers' to re-think their lives and put their skills to good use promoting something honorable. One less sexist wart on Japan's social backside. One down, 50 jillion to go... -_-

Lol thunderbird, true enough. I saw it and it wasn't all that great. Most of it is downright fictitious. But, the subject matter makes people feel good about themselves as you say

More like "14.8% ADMIT to Cheating". I may or may not have contributed to this number, and have reason to believe it ain't right.

This might cause a row--it worries me that Pit fancies himself some kind of social rights activist.

Posted in: 54% of cities hosting nuclear plants OK restart: survey See in context

Not valid as in "Not until my check clears" or as in they simply broke down and sobbed at the very thought?

@yildiray or, as in, not until I get close enough to retirement.

Posted in: 6 cars torched; tires on 32 others punctured in city hall parking lot See in context

I'd say these were just nutty teens BUT for the fact that it was obviously targeted at public officials. And we all know Japanese younglings couldn't care less about political machinations. It's yakuza.

Being a fake wedding guest would be a ball. You'd wanna be on your toes the whole time though...and make sure you meet the couple before for story corraboration!

'Time will tell' is usually an excuse for inaction, and so annoys me. But the Utada song is good.

Posted in: Why are Japanese so bad at English? See in context

Exactly @herefornow I took a class with a bunch of Japanese students and every other word I said made them convulsed with laughter. I didn't realize why until recently. Also, they use a lot of those butchered english words on TV all the time

Well in theory it sounds okay. I for one would feel super weird. I felt pretty weird just doing it with only males. Guess it's just my being western..

imagine how she felt, alone, with no one in her life to care, or help..i'm not defending her but this stuff brought on by social isolation is so common here. It's probably really immature of me, but I wish I could be there for everyone like this...

Posted in: Apple to drop patent claims against Samsung phone See in context

I can't believe they even listened to apple in he first place. How ridiculous it would be if Calvin Klein sued Fruit of the Loom or something saying "They stole our elastic waistbands idea!" Apple just wants to knock out the competition, plain and simple.
