Posted in: Japanese beer is a lot better than American beer. We'll be looking those up at the liquor store when we get back. See in context

As far as the major labels go, this is a no-doubter. Asahi an Sapporo ars superior to any of the watery brews made in the U.S. and I have been telling that to my American friends for years. Haven't tasted a craft beer on either side that I've liked yet so that one is a wash to me.

Why why why? I know there can't possibly be a good reason for her actions and who really cares that she hasn't been to university classes since April?

All that booze is more expensive due to the sales tax increase. Add in the cost of all those blue mats, and yeah, I can see why the costs are so high. Wrong. Typical waste of taxpayer money but they will still approve it. How about using that money for something useful and having those rich and famous people pay for it themselves or at the very least leave a donation (say 5000 yen) to a charitable cause as a pretext to attending the event?

Connections. All people should stay connected in some way or form with their neighbors and, as some have posted before, identify who is most in need, identify vulnerabilities, and formulate plans to best assist them during various natural disaster scenarios. This is much much easier said than done, however.

Let him really cool off in the cooler for a few months at the very least. Lots of unhinged people running around out there.

Somebody has to stand up! Just how many more billions do the greedy owners and players need? The league may lose lots of money but it surely won't go out of business. Time to show China's communists that they don't run the show and you can and will survive without them.

When will the West accept that HK is part of China?

It is accepted. However, just because you are head of the household and think it's OK to rule with an iron fist doesn't mean the people inside have no rights and that no on should stick up for those people.

Very easy to not look. I am on vacation now and until I read this, I had not even given it any thought. Easier for those of us who were already adults and working long before the invention of e-mails to do that I think. My computer and smartphone are not integral parts of my life or identity.

Stay in your lane, China. Can't control the rest of the world like you do at home. Don't show the games and guess what? The league and the world goes on without you. Swish.

@HBJ and others:thank you! There is always a debate in my office about this topic and many people can't see how passive aggressive, impolite, rude and downright racist this country really is. Articles like this are just to get people posting, which always happens, but there is also strong belief among the native around the nation that Japan is unique. Luckily, many of us know that to be wholly untrue.

I don't mind the tax but hopefully they use 100% of it for social welfare.

The Geena Davis who is best known for a movie that ends with two women driving off a cliff together? That kind of inspiration?

I had someone tell me they loved rugby a few days ago. When she asked me and I said I wasn't really interested she was shocked. I told her that like most "fans" she was probably only intersted in it because the World Cup was being played here. She did not disagree. World Cup finishes, the team goes back to being garbage and the "fans" disappear.
