@philly1: If you know how the boys in this country think then you're sure to know that thoughts like those rarely enter their minds.

No matter what happens after tnis, she is already a huge success. No need for anyone else to try to define it for her. Happiness is way more important. Glad she can see that at such a relatively young age.

Posted in: Japanese company will ask your crush out on a date for you if you’re too shy to do it yourself See in context

Good idea because fools and their money are soon parted. In this country, anything that aids someone into becoming more of a geek, introvert or social misfit is a hot commodity. Next up: you pay them to send someone on a date with the object of your obsession for you because you are too shy.

Posted in: Greatest western film? 'Wild Bunch' book argues its case See in context

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is my favorite. Drama, comedy, war, greed, betrayal, vengeance, humanity and brutality are all touched upon themes. The score is also exceptionally good.

Posted in: Age limits - whatever you’re doing, you can’t do it forever See in context

I’d hesitate to go with a guy old enough to be my father.

She didn't say she wouldn't so... Anyway, hesitation is OK but remember what Mae West said, "He who hesitates is last." Age is a factor but what if that guy old enough to be your father is a "Daddy Warbucks?" Bound to sway even the most hesitant, see: Hefner, Hugh, or even Trump, Donald to get my point.

I have to say it looks like I was wrong about this guy. He seems to be the real deal but he still he needs a few more quality years before we can know for sure.

Posted in: In Japan, Valentine's Day gives women chance to treat themselves See in context

Valentine's Day has moved far past its romantic connotations and "we're seeing more and more instances of women looking for an opportunity to get together with their girlfriends," says Natsumi Akai, an assistant buyer at Ginza Mitsukoshi.

Can't that be done during damn near any time during the year? I see many instances of groups of girls going out and holding onto each other like they are conjoined. Even the cool guys I know say the women are getting stranger and stranger. One reason the birthrate is in the tank.

I get lots of expensive chocolates every year. Don't feel sad for these losers at all. These Godiva chocolates sure taste good!

Posted in: Agony of defeat See in context

Funny how WOWOW always saves the fight that has a Japanese fighter in it for last, even when it isn't even close to being the main event. Then the guy gets choked out in the first round by an average guy from Korea, as happened in this case.

Just as we said no to the 2020 Olympics that Tokyo fawned over, we are also saying no to this "deal."

"Even at 73, I can tap into the pain of the 8-, 9-, 10-year-old in me that never achieved. I was told that I would never achieve. I failed at everything except for going home. I was really good when the bell rung," Winkler said.

Proved those naysayers wrong and then some, didn't you? Hard to believe The Fonz is 73 but he has come a long way.

I guess it could be fraud because he is married. He could say he was thinking about divorcing but... due diligence is what is needed. Even when it comes to these supposedly reputable sites, there are still lots of scammers out there.

Posted in: 'Giri' (obligation) chocolates seen as power harassment; more Japanese companies ban practice See in context

As much as I ueec to despise both girichoco and omiyage, I have gotten so much good stuff every year that I kind of like it now. I spend a good chunk of change on omiyage every time I go back home. That said, they both could go away and I wouldn't mind at all. Valentine's Day is a sappy corny day anyway.

Man this just makes my blood boil! They are the worst of the worst although it seems the mother was a victim herself. Poor poor girl. He didn't deserve her but he deserves a long long prison sentence. Uncaring sadistic bastard.

Hip hop is older than forty. That record is forty but no one knew who the Sugarhill Gang were in my South Bronx neighborhood. However, we were already listening to Grandmaster Flash, Spoonie Gee, Kurtis Blow and the Treacherous Three among others. They just had not yet put their stuff on wax. By the way, skme say King Tim III by the Fatback Band was first.

Sounds like new officers are what is needed, not new holsters. Get them off the rice balls and onto some muscle-building protein and weight-training exercises.

Please don't mull it. Do it. Maybe that will cause a domino effect and other lines will follow. Then maybe the Kanagawa lines will get into the act. Too much to hope for?
