Posted in: Holidays key test for Nintendo as Wii U struggles See in context

I have Wii and enjoy playing it with my kids, but I find no reason to get WiiU. This may be the point where I get a PS or XBox. Also, as anyone can see at any toy store, Wii has very few games and they never have sales, so it gets tiring to support the old platform.

What is the logic to link two cesspools on a late night bus whose target passengers are rowdy drunks crammed into a small space together. I cannot imagine that this will go well.

Good for her! Why all the negativity from the peanut gallery? Maybe he is a nerdy egghead and is thrilled to roll with a Japanese hotty,,,

Posted in: There are students who can't even understand when the class is run in Japanese, so can classes conducted in English truly be possible? See in context

I was a JET and in spite of my incredible amount of initial motivation I learned pretty quickly that the old dog teachers just wanted a tape recorder. I could make some impact out of classes with team activities and English club.

In my opinion the main problem is teachers teaching to the test which is mainly grammar. I am not sure why Japanese feel they need to know the esoteric nuances of English grammer better than an Oxford librarian,,,

"Ishihara responded that the government will enact a law stating that the waste must be moved out of the prefecture with 30 years."

REALLY?!!! To where could they possibly bring this crap. How about that disputed island that China wants. Dump it all there and see if China still wants it.

Regarding "Branding Jang 'despicable human scum… worse than a dog'"

I don't get the dog metaphor. Sure dogs sometimes fornicate in public and lick their ballz and arses, but they are generally trustworthy and loyal,,,

these guys are a lot tougher than me. after dealing with Japan life for so many years, if I lost my kids I probably wouldn't even bother wasting time or money in the court system because I know what would happen.

I think it also tastes better, but if you go from an unhealthy diet of hamburgers and donuts it may take a while to get used to the more nuanced flavor of healthier foods,,,

Posted in: Irregular working conditions grinding women down See in context

Oh my, aren't these the same women 20 years ago who were too good for any of the many men who asked them out or for marriage. Aren't these the same women we heard about the last 20 years who lived with their parents and spent every cent of their pay on travel to Hawaii and on designer goods and could give a &'%$ about anyone besides themselves. Aren't these the same women I see on the train every day and if I mistake to smile give me an icy glare like how dare you gaijin! The Germans say it best with schadenfreude,,, no tears here.

And @TrevorPeace1, I assure you sir you do not want to get mixed up in any of that stew of selfishness and emotional resentment. There are many many much better women in Japan that you will meet.

Posted in: How should the international community react to China's declaration of an air defense zone that requires airlines to submit their flight plans in advance? See in context

I think it depends on how many flights this affects. I understand all flights going to China or over China airspace must submit flight plans anyways, so this just affect flights flying over that freaking rock island that are not going to China. Looking on a map, that area is pretty darn close to China so I am not really surprised that they want to know what it going on out there.

Posted in: Prenatal screening: When knowing can become an unbearable dilemma See in context

I agree with the tenor of the above. The current generation of self-aggrandizing twitter followers (twits) should never undertake any risk to their life of ease and plenty. How dare any handicapped genetically defective person have the audacity to be born and inconvenience you. Eugenics forever.

My genius doctor pointed out two minor risk from toxoplasmosis from two pregnancies, and the old school mother in law inferred thinking of abortion, and I can hardly stand her for it. Both turned out 100% okay.

Posted in: Elderly people's manners increasingly deplorable See in context

The main problem is not the lack of manners but the inhumane and undignified train system in Tokyo that absolutely fails to keep up with the commute needs. It is the worst part of my day and I never experience such spike in stress in my own country even in bad traffic where I have some dignity in my car. If you do not commute in Tokyo then you should really be thankful as you can enjoy the real Japan.

Posted in: U.S. diplomacy is outdated See in context

It will be difficult to do as this guy recommends with the Chinese. If you meet a real die-hard communist as I have, they learn a totally different history and it is like talking to an autistic person who inputs what you say but outputs in a totally unexpected and illogical way. Best way to deal with China is judicious force.
