Posted in: Japan offers compromise on rice in Asia-Pacific trade talks: Nikkei See in context

From a consumer standpoint, I'll pay extra to eat Japanese rice. Without writing a novel, I used to look forward to eating Japanese rice. Otherwise grew up on Cali rice, which isn't bad, but not good enough for me to save money over.

Sounds awesome. No pickles, add bacon.

M'eh, I'm guessing it was a level playing field for the most part. Those that didn't get the cutting edge drugs weren't at the top. Champion of the performance enhancing era. But don't listen to me, Barry Bonds was my favorite ball player.

I'm thinking a lot of that is common sense. But perhaps coming straight out of college, it may not seem like it.

Making friends would help, but that'd be the same in a large city.

You just have to be game for it. And like you said, being a city girl won't help.

Nice win. Nitpicking haters can't leave it alone for a second. Sigh.

Yasukuni, the older generation are willingly stuck in their old ways; especially in a sleepy town like Kushiro.

It's pretty common for family members to go without contact for a while. Especially between stubborn family members.

Any announcements to bring this little one to the states? Maybe a 450 version as well!

I fail to see the specifics that differentiate this from other cloud infrastructures w/ virtualization...

Posted in: Anti-base ad See in context

A lot of people are getting it wrong...even though it can be used to protect the countries surrounding the base(s), they are more or less strategic military positions. Check out who's trying to buy their way into the islands in the middle of the Pacific (starts with a "C" and ends with an "A"...and it's not Canada). As far as the ad goes, I guess Americans would go agro if any other country had bases in the States.

I think some posters don't get that this is Japan, not America.

Cutters (stress relievers excluded) are crying for help.

Also, it's not as easy as flipping a switch to change a culture that took generations to get where it is today.

Argue 'protocols' all you want, hate on the president trying to keep good ties with another country all you want as well. I think it was a good move.

If the justice system was flawless, I'd agree with a "life for a life".

Posted in: Hokkaido: The 'wild west' of Japan See in context

I wouldn't so far as to call it the "wild west" of Japan. It's closer to what Middle America is in terms of demeanor. Sans the drug use.

Posted in: 3 family members die after falling into feed silo See in context

USNinJapan2, I think you're right. I used to work in these things. If it was only 4 meters, there was already hay in the silo. These things usually go pretty far down into the ground. Can't imagine how bad it'd be to work in them, that far down south.
