To Elvis is here--wouldn't you agree those pigs have a better life than being cooped up in an industrial farming operation only to be slaughtered?

How cool will he be with a prison record? Oh well, he can chill out in prison.

Posted in: Can factory chicken really help save the climate? See in context

Correction-chickens can live up to 10 years. And we off them at 45 days for something as useless as nuggets.

I wish nuggets had not been invented.

Posted in: Can factory chicken really help save the climate? See in context

. By the time they are slaughtered at 45 days, they will weigh over three kilos.

I find that very depressing. A 45 day lifespan. A chicken can have a lifespan up to 4 years, on average.

 May the superior Japanese legal system bring justice to his grieving family and This is precisely why we need more cameras in Japan.

Totally disagree. More cameras are not needed. You cannot camera up an entire country unless you want big brother inspecting every aspect of your life (as they do in parts of China)

Also, you may be the only person I have ever read on this site who feels the Japanese legal system is superior. How is it superior?

Posted in: Sour grapes: Japan battles to protect premium fruits See in context

Of all places in the world I have been to, Japan clearly has the most expensive fruit.

If a supermarket in my home country put out grapes at Japanese prices, they would not sell a single bunch.

As for the comment above, remember that those "premium" prices make the fruit unaffordable for a significant percentage of the population. That's not fair at all.

Fighto!

   Worth every cent of that $700 mill to the Dodgers, too.

That will be determined. As they say, * the proof of the pudding (is in the eating) i*

They really did a post mortem? Even a youngster could have told them the bird was dead. and not just having a sleep on the roadway ..and it's pretty obvious that the taxi was the cause.

Wonder what his penalty will be?

Moonraker-I for one notice the ugliness. So many Japanese urban areas are totally aesthetic disasters. I have always said Japanese cities look nicer at night, because the darkness helps cover up the ugly urban design

It's a shame about these kind of towns, but not uncommon. One my son and I visited in Kyushu was like one of those dust blown towns you see in old westerns. Practically expected to see a tumbleweed rolling down the street. We called it "ghostville".

The only onsen I have ever been to that when I got back to my locker it wouldn't open. Had to stand around naked except for my small hand towel while 2 staff ladies worked on it for about 20 minutes.

Posted in: Meta faces backlash over Canada news block as wildfires rage See in context

They gotta have that prepackaged narrative and be told what to be mad or sad about, what to support or dont support, who to like or dont like.

Sounds exactly like Tucker Carlson's audience, or the former radio audience of Rush L.

No desire to go on a cruises (even when I had offers of so-called free cruises). I see some charge $120 US per day for drinks (!).

Let's be honest - a good percentage of these kids will be able to get by perfectly into the future without a lick of English.

That is not the point. The point is they are poor at English.

Basically a shot glass amount of heroin. Absolutely barbaric.

30gms of heroin is enough for 370 addicts to feed their habit for a week.

Posted in: McDonalds’ branch in Kanagawa bans entire school from entering restaurant See in context

Huh? People hang out in McDonalds all over the world. I have never seen a time limit at any McDonalds.

All that means is you have not seen them. Does not mean they don't exist.

Just google time limit McDonalds.

Typical sign says No Loiterimg Please. Time limit 30 minutes while eating food. I see it in some places where senior decide to sit in the establishment gabbing for hours on end leaving no tables for customers (and typically ordering nothing but one seniors coffee at a discount)

Japan is one of the few countries where you can go to a place like MDs and sit there all afternoon ordering one item only. People doing homework, office work, whatever.

Other parts of the world enforce a time limit for customers. Not actively eating? Goodbye.

Posted in: Era of mass closures: The Japanese businesses without successors See in context

Who would want to take over a business with no other employees it and enought time to have quiet recorder practice?

The real reason these businesses cannot find buyers is they are no longer profitable. Many are only a hobby to keep the old man out of the house, not a profitable venture

There are way too many tourists here now. Anything to deter them from coming is a good thing.

I am sure hotels and their staff would disagree. Same with many restaurants, bars and amusement places

Seems pretty foolish. Running down the road, wearing a mask and holding a smartphone. This dude could cause some damage to himself or others.

Why would you say "dude" and "himself". The person is a woman.

JapantimeT I am sure that no one will miss a drug mule.

I would think his parents and family would miss him a lot. He may have made many wrong decisions in life, and broken the law, but at the end, he was still a person.
