Posted in: Woman takes helm of Japanese Aegis destroyer for 1st time See in context

This is awesome. I'm tired of female role-models in Japan being air-headed, model-quality bimbos.

I've never seen a Japanese man over fifty without at least one giant mole/skin tag/aging spot on his face. Why don't they get them lasered off?!

At my company, our "external, independent auditor" is....the President's wife! What a great system of independent checks and balances Japanese businesses have...!

Posted in: Activists hope Pope Francis will sway Japanese opinion on death penalty See in context

I don't have a problem with the death penalty per se. Rapist/murdering scum should be exterminated. However, given Japan's dodgy system of forced confessions and the 99% conviction rate scam, I don't think it is the best country to have it.

Posted in: Nearly 20% of Japan households using e-money but cash still king See in context

I can't remember the last time I used cash at a convenience store or supermarket in Japan. I refuse to shop at places that don't offer payment by card. Last year I flew to Okinawa for free using points I had earned by never using cash.

Posted in: Yahoo Japan, messaging app Line to merge to form online giant See in context

Asian countries' consumers tend to put more emphasis on showing all the relevant information at once, where as in the west, customers see a lack of information/overload to be pleasing.

Yeah, my eyes usually start bleeding after perusing Japanese sites such as Rakuten or Yahoo! Auctions.

Posted in: Weightlifting is Japanese salarymen’s newest hobby, report says See in context

Running 10km daily has caused my HDL to shoot up, something I never had with just lifting weights. I'll stick to the running. Costs nothing too.

Posted in: FamilyMart to allow shorter operating hours policy across Japan See in context

People keep saying this but where are the stats? I'll happily believe you with some evidence

I'll do a bet with you. Make the wages ¥3000 per hour, and I bet all the positions are filled within a day.

Posted in: Japan's new working visa acquired by only 219 foreigners in first 6 months See in context

(3) If wages are low, working conditions are terrible, and taxes horrendous, why is it the Japan seems to have no trouble attracting an endless supply of English conversation teachers?

Because such people cannot make it in their home countries, so they come to Japan because they think life will be better.

Posted in: Japan's new working visa acquired by only 219 foreigners in first 6 months See in context

I work for a company in Japan making robots to replace humans. This is the future, like it or not. Japan is not willing to pay decent wages plus offer good working conditions. Hell, not even most Japanese have these things! No way are the Japanese going to offer better conditions to foreigners ahead of native Japanese.

Posted in: 'Friends' reunion special could be headed for HBO Max See in context

I don't think a comeback would be a good idea. Friends was great...back in the 90's. I don't think that concept will work anymore in 2020.

Yes, can you imagine all the howls and tears from everyone and anyone who cannot take a joke concerning gays/lesbians (i.e. Ross's relationships).

Posted in: What changes would you like to see in Japan's English education system? See in context

I'd like to see English education like they have in Scandinavia, for example, but only for those who want to study English. It shouldn't be a compulsory subject. 90% of Japanese people will never need English in their lives.

They should only hire English teachers who have a proper teaching qualification from their home countries (e.g. a PGCE from the UK). No more jokers on holiday funding their drinking habits. They should pay them a proper wage, with all the benefits that Japanese teachers get.
