At last! Someone with an open mind who doesn't jump to conclusions!

Yes, I agree. An equal footing for all should be adhered to. Either decide not to hold the games or treat every participant equally. And as far as testing is concerned, I don't believe testing is in anyway accurate. So this is also unfair and could be deemed as discriminatory.

The alcohol issue would be the same in most countries.. well, countries that would even consider holding the games.

It's just another one of those shock horror nonsense stories, don't you see that? The organisers have just decided not to provide condoms at the games. So what? The offer of condoms on their departure is probably just misinterpreted.

Didou, you have a good point. I think it is a brilliant invention but it's the use and application of it that frightens me. Far too many tracking devices in our daily lives. Future versions will control where people go even!

Yeah.. it's a nonsense story. Another case of 'far too little info. Just enough for people to think how weird Japanese people are'. There are wackos everywhere. I would guess they are both perverts but one had immunity for grassing. If it is at all true!

Some of you people amaze me. How can you be so judgemental over a case/incident which we all know very little about? We have no idea what drove this young man to take such drastic action. Did the report not also say the man was injured? Can you just dismiss that? Maybe the rest of the family were attacking him first? We don't know! You've just been given a small amount of info yet you've already decided the punishment. Amazing!

Posted in: As Japan reboots 44-year-old nuclear reactor, experts sound alarm See in context

I'm shocked it is even being considered. Nuclear power is not the way forward. I'm surprised the Japanese scientists have not been working out a way to harness the power generated from earthquakes! They would prosper well if they succeeded!

Firstly I would like to dispute Bob Fosse's comment on Asahi beers. They are the best lagers in the world in my opinion!

Secondly I felt proud of Japan for avoiding lockdowns as much as possible and being slow to trust vaccinations which are still under trials. Now it seems they are being forced into a corner by world agendas. Sad to witness.. Japan is a wonderful and inspirational nation of people.

Although I feel no insult is intended and people are being too touchy about it, maybe "welcome all" would be best!

Did somebody pay this guy for his research and opinions? Obviously a very generous person because he/she has paid for a complete load of nonsense. I can't imagine how anybody could have reached these riduculous conclusions from the observations listed. Stingy to save the best til last! What?

I think it is a typical story of a lovely race of people. The Japanese are so charming and that is what makes Japan my favourite country. Yes, it is the little things that count. It is an attitude lost by most of the world. I hope the Japanese don't get seduced by western ways and that they never change.

Burning Bush that is a very robotic mentality. Yes, that is how you would program a computer to respond but we are human! Haha.. even I have said no when I really mean yes or maybe... Can people not be allowed to tease? Obviously not in your world.

Smart girls vs creepy pedo. Phew, I'm glad of the outcome, but he needs to be monitored from now on. He will try similar things again and maybe the girls won't be so smart.

Can you expect resue workers to risk their lives looking for somebody stupid enough to surf in these conditions? No, no mercy for pure stupidity. It is a tragedy but he only has himself to blame.

Posted in: Last crew member of Enola Gay dies in US See in context

I'm sorry but I can only regard this man as the messenger of evil. Whether he was a pawn or not is beside the point. What he contributed to was/is the most evil act ever perpertrated by the human race on the human race and all lifeforms. No sympathy from me and certainly no honour. He was certainly no hero! I will never forgive the US for this act. I don't believe they were not aware of exactly what their actions would result in. In my opinion this is far worse than the atrocities Hitler commited. Good ridance to the last survivor of Enola Gay.

Posted in: Heatwave kills 15; more than 8,000 hospitalised See in context

Well bully for you smart Alec TheInterstat. Aren't you the clever one (not)? I agree with MapleG. People suffer at much lower temperatures in cities and to think that old people would make it up just to socialise is ridiculous. Just because you might not suffer yourself does not mean people make it up. We all have different tolerances and our tolerance decreases with old age. I spent 3 months in Thailand in the summer and it was extremely hot then. I could cope but I was young. I couldn't cope now that I am in my 50's. If 8,000 people are hospitalised I can't see how anyone can say it is a sympathy call. My mother is in her 70's and she can't cope in the UK with 25 degrees! She is not a liar!!!

Thunderbird2.. It only takes one big quake though. That could happen anytime. So never mind the record since the 60s that is irelevant.

Posted in: China executes Japanese man for drug offenses See in context

Strangerland, many thanks. You are the only person to make any sense on this topic. Not only that but the death penalty is wrong no matter what the crime. Anyway, the report does not mention any details about the offence. Perhaps it was just a dude with a splif! if it was a personal amount of any drug what harm is it to anyone else? Now does that deserve the death penalty in anyone's eyes?

No matter what the death penalty is primitive and wrong. To use violence, which the death penalty is, means that you do not have the intelligence to win the argument by reason. I feel very strongly about this.. so primitive you death mongers.

I think it is lovely whatever the reason. The Japanese are very polite and there certainly cannot be any harm in that. That is what makes them the most charming race on this planet! Why question it?

You know what, I actually think this a validate candidate for the award. Perhaps the best possible candidate and certain winner. Yes, 128 million people have taken a stance and upheld peace and non agression! I love it! I love the Japanese people and I am sorry about the recent changes. Although I can seee Abe's point I think the Japanese should maintain what they have upheld for so long. A message to us all... Well done Japan, you get my vote!

Hahaa, I can understand the attraction as Japanese women are soooo elegant. But there is no excuse for that kind of behaviour and ultimately disrespect! How would he like if somebody forced unwanted attention on him? We all deserve to be respected..except him!

@zichi - Do you always read my mind? Haha.. you always post my sentiments and make the most sense to me. Fact not fiction.. that is how to address such issues as nuclear power disasters. Yes, compensation is an obligation that should be fully addressed by those responsible for what others have lost.

Posted in: Tokyo rated No. 1 city in the world in Trip Advisor survey See in context

Well there's a surprise.. but not really. I've traveled to many countries in Europe and Asia and the US and Tokyo is by far the best city I have ever been to. Wow, to me Tokyo is heaven. I plan to move there once I can secure a job.

It all boils down to one thing, the people! Japanese people are the friendliest on this planet. They are helpful, happy, polite and honorable. Not nonly that but Japanese women are the most beautiful of all. Not just in appearance but by nature. they are really feminine, something that western women are losing.

Fairplay.. I totally agree with the poll results. Tokyo is the best city on earth but don't tell everyone or they will ruin it!

Posted in: George Takei sees gay pride beginning in Japan See in context

I am totally against any prejudice be it race, creed or sexuality. I too get annoyed about all the gay rights campaigns and publicity but I also realise that some people need it rammed down their throats to get the message. It is about time that the human race accepted others for who and what they are. No discrimination... what a perfect world!

Being gay should not be an issue for anyone. Just like your skin colour.

I am heterosexual but I have many friends and relatives that are not. It's never made me raise my eyebrows because if it is a problem (which it shouldn't be) it is their problem not mine.

Live and let live.. the sooner everyone adopts this opinion the less publicity gays will seek...
