Posted in: Next U.S. president faces China-Japan balancing act See in context

One thing that's going to make it easier is that China's rise isn't going to be at the fast pace it's been. With an export driven economy and all of their global customers in recession you can bet growth will be in the single digits for at least the next decade.

I was kinda hoping Kim Jong Il would one day host a SNL show but I guess with his health and all that's not likely to happen.

Posted in: Takeshi Kaneshiro disqualified from Taiwan film awards See in context

I had a Japanese acquaintance this week swear til blue in the face that >Kaneshiro "is not Japanese", he got quite riled about it and wouldn't >accept he was wrong. must be annoying for Kaneshiro to get dissed by >both sides of his heritage

That's interesting but I wouldn't use that example as a reflection on how everyone in Japan thinks. I have yet to meet any J-person who didn't consider Kaneshiro to be Japanese. At the very least he's a Japanese actor, which is interesting because in the special features of the DVD House of Flying Daggers (Lovers in Japan) he's introduced as a "Chinese Actor who is popular in Japan". A view that kinda dumps on both Taiwan and Japan in one shot.

Ban guns now. It's just common sense. Wake up America!!! NO GUNS!!!!!!!!!!

Ban Trick-or-Treating. It's just common sense. It puts children at risk for what? So that people are forced to spend money on buying all these sweet candies that are horrible for the children's health and teeth? What an incredibly stupid practice. Trick-or-treating is fun for little grade schoolers. But high school kids and adults should just go to Halloween parties.

It sucks when the country that doesn't ask you to illegally invade turns >around and stabs you in the back, eh?

Invasions aren't legal or illegal. If you had your way Saddam would till be in power and the Iraqi people all happy right?

If these Iraqis spent half the time on getting their country secured and it's act together as they do worrying about when the US troops will leave, we actually could leave. Like tomorrow.

No matter how you cut it, this kind of behavior doesn't do any good for >foreigners in Japan. Another talking in absolutes. It depends who you talk to. Gramps or >already-agitated over there is going to whinge about it sure. Try asking >many of the millions stuck in the grey monotone every day. They've seen >obnoxious employees and girls vomiting on the train before.

Well drunk rowdy behavior by J-salarymen isn't going to affect the image of foreigners is it? Japan has plenty of places to get away from the "grey monotone" and if partying is to be done it can done in a non-public place. Just as it's done here in the USA. We have an annual Halloween Parade but nobody throws parties on public transportation. The NYPD would put it down in 20 minutes.

wild house parties

should be held in a house. Or some other equally non-public location. Holding one on a train or a train station is assinine and displays utter disregard for others as well as common sense.

Posted in: Microsoft says next Windows won't be as annoying See in context

Microsoft just may learn that with the global recession in full swing now many companies and home users even moreso may not feel like dishing out another $200 or so for yet another new version of Windows. At some point even an OS maker has to be able to answer the consumer's question "will this new version save me money somehow?" The answer is probably not since no "new" version of windows has actually saved anyone any money. Forcing consumers to "upgrade" ever since W95 has been nothing more than a function of MS telling us how great the new version is, new software (or hardware) requiring the newer OS, and PC makers preloading the newer OS on their latest products. It's really been, and continues to be quite a scam.

Who decides that she's French-Japanese and not Japanese-French?? Huh, >who does it...WHO!!!!!!!!!

The French? Seriously, perhaps she carries a J-Passport making her a J-national of French descent, ie; French-Japanese.

Posted in: Japanese army major dies during visit to Iwo Jima tunnel See in context

AP used the incorrect term "Army major" rather than a Major in the JGSDF. Even though the term Ground Self Defences Force appears in the article itself. JT goes ahead and runs this clip including the erroneous term. So a JT reader says;

I wonder if he gets to go to Yasakuni and hang around with Tojo and gang? Good job AP and JT!.

NKorea would slam the newspaper even if Kim has been dead for months and they had him stuffed and were still worshiping him.

Posted in: Japanese tourist dies snorkeling in Australia See in context

As a former scuba diver I find it hard to fathom encountering difficulties while snorkeling. At least short of serious complications like a heart or brain seizure or something similarly sudden. However I've seen crowds of snorkeling tourists and have to agree that there are alot of people snorkeling who don't have enough experience in open water. A simple around the neck vest with CO2 should be worn during snorkeling. These snorkelers don't free dive anyway.

the multicultural ceremony at the Japanese American National Museum.

All this time I thought that museum was to promote Japanese-American culture. Not the gay culture. Or should that be Gay-American culture? Hmm...

Posted in: Japanese team finds 'yeti footprints' in Nepal See in context

Frankly I think Yeti, Bigfoot, Yeren believers are a bunch of wackjobs who need to get a life. Or perhaps a real job. But still, every year new animals including quite large mammals are being discovered by scientists in areas some less remote than the Himalays. As much as I ridicule these folks I'm smart enough to know that one day I may be proven wrong.

If you don't have anything to say about a photo there's no need to post something which makes no sense vis-a-vis the photo and the only value being that you can say something nasty about Japan. At the very least it ought to make sense and have relevance.

I don't see much of anything in it much less awkwardness. Did you look at their faces?

Yes. This is called "laughing". The two women on the left are laughing and the two men on the left are watching with smiles on their faces which suggests that they are are sharing in the humor. Therefore, there is nothing suggesting "awkwardness", which could have arisen if they failed to share the humor.

Ah the awkwardness of anything Japan does with the rest of the world.

What about this photo exactly leads you to make this statement? I don't see much of anything in it much less awkwardness.

It's a disgrace that we don't have sufficient human intel in NKorea to know what this announcement is. We should be able to know every time the dear leader flatulated. In realtime.

But Iranians expel USA from their country at 30 years ago! and japanese >even cannot expel US soldiers!

Will you please catch up to reality? Japan isn't trying to expel the US Military. They are there by arrangement because the Japanese govt wants them to be there.

That's very easy to imagine. China and Japan now enjoy a close cooperative relationship. Skorea doesn't matter. NKorea isn't even a member.

Posted in: Lawmaker says Japan should invest cash in U.S. bailout See in context

About the only aspect of Tamura's idea that makes any sense is that it raises the question of whether Japan should sit and watch the value of that 950 billion USD go down, or do something to try and prop it up. The risk is that any attempt to prop it up may or may not be effective, with or without Japan's help. Don't see how the idea is going to sit with the Japanese people but I agree that you might get your hands on the F-22s at the end of the day.
