This is great news! A rising tide lifts all ships, and the recovery is happening apace. The people in Tohoku must have felt a heartful cheer when they heard this news.

TravelingSales has quite a good idea. Plus you get some "free" time while the process is underway.

But seriously, it's 18k pounds. Why can't these high-flying British ex-pat titans of international business get jobs paying more than that?

Posted in: Aso retracts Nazi remarks amid criticism See in context

It really should say that Aso was "MISinterpreted as praising the Nazi regime." I read the original comments in Japanese, and he he praised none of the evils of the Nazis. Nor has any other Japanese politician. The problem is that the overseas media is waiting to pounce on the slightest faulty translation so they can point and say, see, Japan is so crazy! The English media report isn't even close to being an accurate representation of what he said.

One thing I've always respected about America is its strong Bill of Rights, especially the First and Second Amendments. In Japan, we lost our right to protect ourselves (chiefly with swords) to a tyrannical government, which although it has been replaced, still has that law in force. We are at the mercy of the police arriving in time to help us, or arriving at all. Or if they do arrive, perhaps not taking us seriously due to our family name or the plot of land we happen to live on. I view the Second Amendment as America's gift to a world that doesn't yet appreciate its importance.

I always make sure I turn off Java Script in my browser. It's just too dangerous to have on. You can go in the settings and turn it off for all pages and then be safe.

Japan is my country, so I guess I'd have to say both!

Posted in: How to behave at a sushi restaurant See in context

"When I spend MY money, it becomes MY food. And I'll eat it however I like."

Recently I hear so much of this attitude. It's not good for social harmony. There are ways certain things should be done. It's not just "MY" food, it's an experience that connects us back generations.
