'Education' isn't going to stop anyone from falsifying results. Dishonest people are going to cheat as long as they can get away with it!

No use pinning your hooes on Trump, folks! He is only interested in saving his own skin!

Posted in: Man arrested for trying to extort money from smartphone user who ‘bumped’ into him See in context

Cellphone zombies are certainly annoying as heck, but you can't resort to threats and intimidation. But, I think that the fool arrested in this case was looking for quick money more than anything else!

Somebody needs to remind Uematsu that, in fact, HE is the one who is truly 'disabled'! He will be put down soon enough...

Key piece of information is missing: did they recover the gold?! I'm guessing not...

Posted in: New Haneda flight routes to take aircraft over central Tokyo See in context

This is a big mistake. With the 2020 Olympics just around the corner, they just put a huge 'bullseye' over the heart of Tokyo for terrorists to aim for. Koike-san might want to rethink this! Why take a chance?!

Posted in: Doctor leaves gauze in patient's body in Sagamihara hospital See in context

Japanese hospital: where patients go to die.

Seriously!!

My fiancee's mother went in to have a liver tumor zapped with a laser and they let an intern do the procedure, which ended up burning a significant portion of the surrounding HEALTHY tissue!! After this, her health deteriorated both steadily and rapidly until her death a few months ago.

Out-patient service/treatment is decent enough, but I'll fly back to a States-side hospital before EVER accepting in-patient treatment here (assuming I can make it in time)!

Posted in: If you're low-income, here's what you're doing wrong See in context

I find that people who are "on" all the time are extremely self-centered, annoying, and boring... I can't stand to be around such people. I support myself and two kids on only 4.5 million per year (I have no spouse to earn a second paycheck). While I am far from "well-to-do", I am able to eek out a living while doing what I like to do, with people who I like to work with...I wouldn't have it any other way...

LIFE is NOT all about WORK. If I worked all the time, then I would have no time to spend with my kids! I REFUSE to live that way...Go stuff yourself, Spa!

Posted in: Is Japan really racist? See in context

Sure, there's racism here. It's not usually "in your face", but yes, it's definitely there. I used to be very sensitive about it. But now, after 13 years and 5 relationships with great Japanese women, I don't really care. There are enough decent and genuinely open Japanese people to make living here worthwhile.

Keep in mind that a lot of the racism here comes from a place of xenophobic ignorance: blind fear of the unknown, the "other". I feel more pity for people who are so ignorant of the big, wide world that exists beyond the rising sun. Like little tadpoles trapped in a tiny pond, racist Japanese people simply have no concept of anything beyond their local mudhole. Their narrow psychological frame of reference limits them in so many ways that they don't even know how psychologically imprisoned they are.

Yes, there are a lot of racist people in Japan. And there are a lot of really wonderful and loving people in Japan. Don't fear or fret the racist ones. Just pity them and try to educate them when you can.

I love living in Japan!

Posted in: Hyatt Regency in Tokyo admits mislabeling prawns on menu See in context

"lesser quality" - Come on, let's call a shrimp, a shrimp,shall we? The word is: "cheap"! The Hyatt Regency was underhandedly increasing its margins by foisting counterfeit shrimp on its customers and charging premium prices.

"Common industry practice"? Whatever happened to conducting honest business?

Oh, who am I kidding? "Honest business" is an oxymoron...

Hats off to concerned neighbors who actually DID SOMETHING when they noticed something suspicious!

@Disillusioned: You called it! The idea that nuclear power is "clean", is complete idiocy! You stated the reality quite succinctly! The "quick-fix" mentality, laziness, misinformation, and naked greed of the power industry is disgusting!

Posted in: Would you support legalizing marijuana use? If so, why? If not, why not? See in context

I think it's fine if it's legal, but it had better not be in public (i.e. around kids)! In the privacy of your own home? Sure.

Funny. I do translations(often internal memos/letters, etc.) for Olympus and they're always touting all the "reforms" they've made and patting themselves on the back for their "new vision" of the company... Slippery as eels these guys are!
