agree 100% with Frungy.
I have even heard comments from people that they are soo busy these days. they leave at 10 PM. Why don't they cut down on their stress busters (Smoking and sipping coffee) to 20-30 mins a days ?
one more curious way of showing being busy is running around the office all the time. I have seen colleagues doing that. initially i had no clue why they are running, but then someone explained that boss is here and we all should LOOK busy !

There has to be something more to this story...were the police who arrested these guys wanting to buy diapers and got pissed off when nothing was left? Were the men not paying in full? Are diapers restricted goods? Does holding more packs of diapers amount to crime? were the diapers of national importance? Now I am scared of getting diapers for my kids...I should think of importing instead !

by this logic I should charge NHK about 2000 bucks per hour for my entire life. I have the potential to be an actor and NHK has the capability to shoot videos with me in it !
Nonsense...if they want more money just say so and increase the taxes. Why STEAL from us with this silly caveats !

this is not the first time... a lot of my friends from Fukushima say they try to avoid public places when in Tokyo or suburbs. People who know they are from Fukushima just try to avoid getting near them or murmur something and leave !
If Japan does not survive as a powerful nation into the future, this will be one of factors in its fall.
Completely agree with philly1. I can understand such treatment to a foreigner (though it is not justified at all...but unfortunately that is human nature). But these are Japanese people...their own !!!

Posted in: In some countries, there is a ban on adults and children wearing religious clothing and symbols such as burqas, veils, head scarves, skullcaps, turbans and crucifixes in public places like schools, re See in context
totally against the ban... I think at that tender age students should be taught tolerance they should understand sharing space with other religions and race. Of course completely covered robes should be removed on request by security staff in public places...but once security check is done it is again the free will of the person.
