if insurance companies stopped paying out for piracy related incidents in this specific area, there might be less hijacking going on. however there's been no mention of this, which is suggestive of something else going on.

Posted in: Recession a good opportunity to return to Japan's core virtues See in context

Another academic pontificating about poverty without knowing the difference between being poor yet having opportunities or social mobility (via education for example), and being poor with no hope of ever seeing things improve.

To point out the ludicrous nature of his argument, he uses voluntary destitution as an example of freedom, a situation that very few sane people willingly consider today.

Posted in: Supermarket investigator exposes slipshod quality management See in context

In canada, I've been in supermarkets where meet was kept in 13C fridges, or kept in aisles for hours before being put away. Not to mention mice. It's more about the quality of management rather than regulations.

Posted in: Tokyo is the best food city hands down. That's where chefs are going for innovations. There's also a history of food traditions. They are so far ahead of us. See in context

I think you've managed to miss out on the UK food revolution if you're surprised about London. I believe theres been more new Michelin stars awarded to UK restaurants (many in London) in some recent years than in France.

Its the same song all the time..

Western power bombs from afar, pissing off some people whose culture prefers mano-a-mano fighting. Latter beats chest and salvages pride with tactics the Western power calls guerrilla or terrorist. Repeat.

She probably chose her words carefully.

@tokyokawasaki: in my experience, constant nagging despite obvious discouragement is often indicative of specific health problems (endocrine dysfunction, toxicity, etc) when associated with anxiety, mild obsessive, compulsive or bipolar behaviors are present. you'll find very few doctors will understand this however.

Posted in: Ryanair chief says he's serious about pay toilets on planes See in context

I once saw a woman defecate in a public parking lot.. and anyone who has been hospitalized has had to urinate in something not much different than a water bottle. I forsee this is what some people will resort to.

Joining the mile high club will take on a new dimension of spite.
