Getting on-off at every destination and sightseeing with 5000 people. No thanks.

Posted in: Foreign-born Miss Japan sparks debate on what it means to be Japanese See in context

Kinda wonder what defines a "Japanese" is (or any nationality for that matter.) Physical genetics? Good luck with that and how far back you want to go to put a cut off date of when it became a country? Jomon age? Plenty of Japanese with Chinese and Korean dna going back milleniums.

Citizenship (naturalized or nativeborn)?

Native language and culture proficiency?

At the end of the day, it's just a superficial looks contest. No intelligence or other skills needed to win. Chill, people.

Posted in: After blast kills at least 500 at Gaza hospital, Hamas and Israel trade blame as rage spreads in region See in context

This is WAR. Most of the commentator are obviously so naive. It's not a tit-for-tat fighting. After 1000 of their civilians were slaughtered, the Israelis are now in it to annihilate the enemy. While the Palestinians continue to keep the hostages and bomb Israel, the Israelis won't stop. The side that's going to suffer the most now are the Palestinians. It's self-genocide. D-U-M-B.

Maybe the Palestinians should have thought twice about massacring almost 1000 Israeli civilians. Or continue to too keep the hostages. Or continue to bomb a far superior opponent who controls their border, water, electricity, and supply routes. Dumbest strategy I've ever seen.

Posted in: Tourism and Mount Fuji's rocky recovery after COVID See in context

The US makes tourists pay $35 just to enter the major national parks. Keeps a lot of idiots out. And so do other countries. Put the cutoff at Fujisan level 6 or 7. That'll give the out of shape people a chance to hike without getting in trouble. From there charge a fee and make them show a jacket and 1.5L of water. If they don't have it, make them buy or rent a jacket. The local vendors will make $ and tax payers don't have to pay a lot of $ to rescue idiots.

Musk, a fat old walrus, versus Zuck, who's fit and well trained. 10 sec or less tap out...

Posted in: G7 nations considering near-total ban on exports to Russia: reports See in context

Perhaps if the citizens of the G7 nations didn't whine about their gas/electric price, then perhaps their democratic government would grow some balls.

Posted in: More than half of the world will be overweight or obese by 2035: report See in context

People under 50yo have no clue on the typical medical costs that they'll pay for the rest of their life just by being fat. Not to mention the toll it'll take on their joints and quality of life. Not to mention the excessive resources needed to feed these human bovines.

Posted in: Court commutes death sentence to life in prison for man who killed 2 people in hit-and-run See in context

Death penalty seems to be a pretty good deterent in Adian countries. Far less violent crime than western countries where animals get a light sentence, go to prison to be further hardened into crime, come out and commit more. US has the most incarceration among the OECD countries but violent crime is still the highest. While Japan is the safest. Westerners need to fix their society before criticizing others.

Posted in: 25 years on, slain Japanese exchange student recalled by friends See in context

Some of these comments and a lot of comments from the previous posting 5 years ago are not surprising. It's interesting how Americans quickly get into defensive mode and tell others how to behave when visiting the US. I suppose these are the neanderthals who don't get out much, thus don't have a good grasp on the concept of human civility towards others, like in other evolved countries. Instead of focusing on how to improve the US way of life so that they can evolve to a first world country, they still focus on the wrongs of other people. Basically, devolving to grade school name calling mentality. It used to be America and democracy was the "shining beacon" to the rest of the world. Now US high school students are not even ranked in the top 20 in the world. 50% are living paycheck to paycheck. Highest incarceration rate in all the "first world" countries. white people opioid epidemic. A racist, misogynistic, lying loud mouth with absolutely no government experience was chosen out of 15 republicans to run for the presidency and eventually win (by electoral vote). Debt ceiling keeps getting higher and higher each year. So does America have a lot of fixing to do? Yeah, I'd say so.

Japan, take comfort. Average Americans do not kill only foreigners. They kill about 40,000 of their own family, friends and acquaintance each year by guns. Yeah, that's how f*cking crazy they are.
