By far the worst offenders are older gents who exude a scent called kareishū (加齢臭).'s nasty. Don't know how the wife stands it!

Serrano, If you read the article you should be able to infer he more than likely started on the US side. “The man ended up on the Cnd. side of the Falls...”

Enhance our integrity

means translation done by a non-native or someone whose English isn’t very fluent. Lack of natural collocation use = poor translation skills.

Completely agree with jcapan – speed bumps will slow drivers right down! In Mexico there are speed bumps even in the middle of a highway where there are intersections, merges and such. Of course, they are located in rural neighbourhoods and local roads, too. Who cares if you have to slow down a little if it's going to save people from getting injured by recklessness. Saving lives goes without saying. Get on it Japan!

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic CEO reminds visitors that cannabis is banned in Japan See in context

...for the latter is a narcotic that can lead users to heavier drugs such as cocaine and heroine. It’s more of a health issue than of a moral one.

Are you for real? Please educate yourself on the health benefits of Cannabis and CBD oil. Researchers are now understanding it is a kind of miracle drug.

Posted in: Ex-ambassador arrested over murder of son See in context

Some of you posters are the guy a death sentence with absolutely zero background information. What if the 44 year old (probably freeloading and mentally ill) son was a ne'er do well and violent? Typical knee-jerk reaction and posts from people who have never lived with a whacko or had to support anyone in their life.

Posted in: Man fires gun snatched from police officer in Yokohama See in context

Was in Nakano-ku last year waiting at an intersection. A couple J-cops were in front of me. One had his little police bag dangling on his holster by the bag’s handles and had something else in his hands. I looked at it in amazement and said to him “it’s going to be pretty hard if you have to pull your gun out with your bag hanging like that” They both looked at me like I was the crazy one! Clueless...simply clueless.
