Posted in: China limits smoking in films, TV shows See in context

No shooting guns in movies is a healthy example... I hope one day Hollywood/Chinawood/Bollywood and Japanwood follow Tibet`s movie industry, no smoking, no driving, no shooting, no (unprotected) sex, no cursing, no fighting, no junk food and no drinking.... just meditating and praying. We all need examples, we are lost sheep who wonder through the valley of darkness, tempted by the evil pleasures who are merely creations of our weaknesses.

Posted in: Women file suit to keep their surnames after they marry See in context

It's pretty ridiculous that Japanese law allows a man to be "adopted" by the wife's family so that he will take her surname. Doesn't that mean you're marrying your own relative then?

This is only the case if the wifes family doesnt have a son and they have lots of land and property. Its not a family thing its an inheritance thing. I dont know the details why this is preferable...but Ill change happily to my wifes family name in return for a huge chunk of land which will provide for my family and settle our retirement. If the wife can change her name to my family because of dumb law, then I can change my name for something much more meaningful easily....after all its just a name...

Posted in: How the iPad won over an unbeliever See in context

I want one...I dont know why..but the otaku in me says "buy one"! Unfortunately the wife asks "why?" Mmm if you have an ipad, you surely want the 3g option, which means yet another contract with softbank...or you overpay for a simm free version. Do I want a nagging wife, do I like softbank so much that Ill be willing to give away my money to them? Do I have to shed tears as next year an ipad appears with those dreadful needed usb ports? Mmm the otaku says "yes of course you should get one, who cares if Mr Jobs is turning into a Mr Gates, and all above reasons.. get get get and when you`re at it get also one of those overpriced fan-less fans from Dyson!" So I eventually will throw all common sense out the window and get one....I just hope that against time I have found a valid reason to buy one..

But the murder, rape, victimizing, torture, killing, drinking, drug use, mutilating, fast driving and unprotected sex goes on.... Thank god that smoking is almost banned in movies, kids might start picking up that bad habit! After the "hattori" incident, the on-liner all Japanese students going to the US learned was "freeze!".....mmmm nothing changed.

Posted in: France defies EU criticism on Gypsy expulsions See in context

mmm it became one big quote...

But on a serious note, the presence of gypsies have turned lots of EU countries into third world lookalikes. Begging, pickpocketing, and loads of other crimes are done by gypsies and other East European "guest" workers. Sure the natives have been doing the same, but since the arrival of our East European friends, things have escalated beyond proportion. Why do you think, when two gypsy girls drowned in front of a full beach in Italy, nobody helped them? Blatant racism?. No its anger of seeing your country turning into sh1t. To understand the problem, you have to experience it, live in Germany/Italy/Holland/France for a while and instead of "Why?", you might say "mmm thats why" Ms Viviane Reding doesn`t live a life in which she will be confronted by these problems, I applaud the French for taking their country back.

Too much free time and too much kimchi, as always do they go over the top. Cry their eyes out when the neighbourhood dog dies, fight their head off if they can prove something. Overreacting is korean culture and the press shouldnt take these demos serious.

Posted in: Iniesta scores in extra time to give Spain World Cup See in context

Take your head out of the sand and look at it properly. Iniesta was a full yard onside! Webb's only fault was not sending off De Jong for his Bruce Lee style kick on Alonso.

Wrong my friend, Iniesta was offside the first time, before he got the ball, but hey see what you wanna see. People saying that Holland played dirty have been reading the BBC comments to closely and forgot watching the game. There were a lot of fouls....from both sides it`s just that Spanish players drop like flies whenever a Dutch defender was nearby.

Useless referee, missed an important corner kick, approved an goal which was clearly offside.... still the Spanish deserved this victory.

Zenny11, Im not familiar with Stage 1 non-Hodgkin lymphoma, but from what I read, its treatable. Tough to hear though about your personal experiences, but stories like Andy Whitfield's may give you and many others a positive boost.

Posted in: Star Channel to air 'Spartacus: Blood and Sand' See in context

"Spartacus: Blood and Sand" Season 2 is a go! Star Andy Whitfield's diagnosis of Stage 1 non-Hodgkin lymphoma put production of Season 2 on hold. Instead, producers greenlit a 6-episode "Spartacus" prequel series starring Lucy Lawless and John Hannah.

Whitfield announced to Deadline that he is now cancer-free and has already begun training for his appearance in the prequel series. "I'm raring to go," he says, noting that his treatment was completed in mid-May.

"I was a healthy young man and had no idea that this could happen," Whitfield says of the initial shock. "It was frustrating that the first season was ending on such a high note and we could have been rolling into season 2."

Spartacus will be seen in two episodes of the prequel. Whitfield will begin filming his scenes in October, which gives him plenty of time for the rigorous boot-camp training he does for the physically demanding role. After the prequel series wraps the cast will immediately segue into the full Season 2 of "Spartacus: Blood and Sand."

Andy used the time off to "heal, stay in the now, and spend time with my family," he says, but he's looking forward to getting back into his gladiator sandals.

As for what the ordeal has taught him, Whitfield says he's learned to "stay in the now and enjoy every moment."

Too bad the lead actor has cancer. I hope he comes through

Yes he came through and hes fine, but the next series are based on "the house of batiacus" so thats before spartacus came, because the producers didn`t know how well the lead star would fare. Absolutely a great series, but yes I recommend you download them , because the Japanese version will be heavily censored

Posted in: Germany promises aggression against England See in context

The English had ONE reasonable game and now expect to beat the Germans? Funny the English press has a short memory when it comes to their team`s performances and a long one when it comes to ww2. Anyway no matter what what the press says, the only team the Germans regard as their "rivals" are the Dutch, but even that has mellowed down since so many Dutch players have been playing in the Bundesliga for the last few years. Germany-England=two-nil and a one way back to fish and chips land.

Posted in: Dutch roll See in context

This is quite arrogant, but I am not surprised, being painfully familiar with the Dutch and their rude manner - evidenced in their game in this match too. I think they played rudely and clusmily and did not deserve to win, but were lucky. The Dutch remain what they are...

Ha ha what a nonsense, its not arrogant its funny, you know funny? If someone is dressed like that, than you know that they dont take themselves too serious either. Dutch soccer fans are the some of the best least violent and most colorful in the world of soccer, IF you dont That (mark the capitals) then you`re not much of a soccer fan. And generalizing people in such a bitter tone like you do reeks of a broken heart. The Dutch I know are outspoken and frank, yeah sometimes bordering on rude, but also funny and dependable as hell. As for the game, the Japanese played a good game of defense and I think the Dutch underestimated them in the first half a bit....but if you look at the ease they passed the ball around, well they keep the best for last.

Posted in: Ronald McDonald under fire from child obesity opponents See in context

I say"ban the man", as a devoted father of three, I face an uphill climb everyday. I try to give my kids a healthy diet of yakisoba and takoyaki, just to see Ronald and his happy set friends steal my kids'hearts and turn them into little hindenburgs! Even if I can keep my kids away from those unsaturated fat products, they still turn obese, because of second hand fat! Second hand fat and it's relative unknown evil brother, fourth hand smoke, will get to you through licking. Everytime you lick an addict, tiny bits of fat or tar will enter your bloodstream, and you know toddlers lick about anything. Next item on my agenda are those budweiser girls!

Posted in: Smokeless tobacco product goes on sale See in context

Actually I agree with most posters on this board, these cigs are no solution, they should ban those things completely, and anything what even resembles them, chocolate cigs, chupa chups, etc. Last week I almost smacked a kid for the head for making "sucking" sounds when he was sucking his thumb. Instead of that, I lectured his brainless mother about the danger of this behavior and the indirect link to lung cancer and high insurance costs. I think I convinced her, because she gave her kid a snicker bar to stop that sucking habit. Mmm I even dumped some ignorant girlfriend just because she wouldnt stop making those sounds in bed...better lonely and healthy than happy and sick. I understand the stance "I hate smoking, because my uncle died a horrible death"many people have, me too, for that matter I stay away from donuts, far away, I curse those round despicable pathetic excuses for a cake, after my dear step-uncle got hit by a Mister Donuts truck on the way back from a round of golf. He wasnt immediately killed by the impact of the truck, no what finally did the trick was suffocation by the thousands of donuts which rolled out of the truck. Anyway I hate smoking, smokers, smoke and that thing kindergarten kids have to wear here in japan called a smok so of course smokeless is completely unacceptable! At the moment Im trying to get some teachers fired at my sons elementary school, because they smelled like they had smoked, as an active pta member I think its my duty to inform the other parents of the dangers of fourth hand smoke, and even these smokeless cigs could still be smelling, it doesnt say smelless cigs. I rest my case

Smokers should send their life savings to JT and then hang themselves.

If non smokers would do that then they wont have to inhale second hand smoke..... Zurc go and set an example, if we non smokers all hang ourselves then the smokers realize how far we go to make them kick this filthy habit, thatll teach them a lesson!

The safest thing is to ban keitais, smoking, eating, drinking, adjusting the stereo while driving, noisy passengers/kids/dogs, peeking at your navi and putting up make-up...if those things are oulawed, the only dangerous thing left is....driving

Posted in: Anti-smoking 'monsters' have smokers on the run See in context

For the record though, I completely agree that smoking should be banned from public places and on the street, except for designated areas....but Im against demonizing smokers and calling them names just because I dont smoke. And if they invade my comfort/health zone , which includes smoking near my kids Ill ask them friendly to stop or move away. And if that doesnt help I can always get aggressive.

Sensitive aren't we? Sure if a guy drops ash on your baby you have all the right to hook him one, but that's no reason to hate all smokers, but if YOU think that's a valid reason... Good on you love. The other poster just confirms my point, ya'all too emotional about this thing and get personal too easy. Where am I from? I am not asking you am I, neither am I interested because one voice doesn't represent a country. But I can tell you that I'm a no smoker, with smoking friends who respect my position and my vices and I put up with theirs and don't get in their faces.

Lol kids choking on cig butts? Any argument is allowed ne? This is just a case of bad parenting, you're going after candies and ice cubes too? Sure discussing on this board is what it is intend for, unfortunately lots of folks here don't discuss, they vent their dissatisfaction and worse some even think they have the right to confront smokers in real life.

A lot of people on this board still forget that they are guests in this country, nobody in particulair is waiting for your opinions! Take your anti tabacco stance and your squirt gun back home and leave this battle to the natives. When the japanese go after your gunlaws in the USA nobody would accept that now would they? That's why anti smoking crusaders should stay home, or ignore the smoke and enjoy the safety here. By the way why are the moderators not strict on name calling when it's an antismoker who writes "fool"?

Posted in: Anti-smoking 'monsters' have smokers on the run See in context

I`m an anti-smoking monster and proud of it. Have been ever since some ignorant ba#$%$d flicked fagg ash all over my 3 month old in her pram. You respect non-smokers and we will respect you. You flick fagg ash over our children, we will stamp our foot and scream at you in very bad Japanese!

A useless comment, because you would react the same if an ignorant driver would hit your baby pram, but would you turn into a anti-driving monster? I am a non smoker, but unlike many others on this board I am less worried about second hand smoke than all those other things in this world which can kill you (often much faster). The danger of second hand smoke is overrated if you realize what you breathe in day in day out and consider the risks you take when you go to work by car or bike or even on foot or stick in your mouth. When and who decided to turn our smoking fellow friends into the communist of the 21st century? Let them have their cigs and they will let you have your pint, hamburger and occasionally let you drive 60 in a 50 km/h zone without preaching us about the dangers to yourself and in the last case, the people around you. Sometimes peoples reactions make me ashamed to be a non-smoker and nowadays especially, many smokers have far better manners than non-smokers...tragic it has come this far....what`s next, the anti fast-food brigade?
