“I was kind of with him until they said ‘men’s’ tennis club.”

Either a straight man or a lesbian.

Anyway, rather this than soiled knickers.

Posted in: Half of foreigners in Tokyo have experienced discrimination: survey See in context


Depending upon the situation I do not see how being asked to speak in Japanese and not another language as being discriminatory, if one is at work, or dealing with customers

I don't know whether anyone has called you out on this (too many comments to read), but did you really read the article properly? The example given was not about two Chinese colleagues gossiping with each other next to Japanese colleagues. A Chinese customer was asking the staff member a legitimate question in Chinese and since they are both native speakers, it makes sense to respond in Chinese. I've seen it happen in my local supermarket (the customer wants to know where the chocolates or beef, etc is). I don't whether the customer, who looked like a tourist, spoke any Japanese, but I had no problem with them speaking in Chinese. Not my business.

How are you going to communicate with most tourists from abroad if you only spoke Japanese all the time?

Yawn... what about tv shows where men have to deal with no-good, murderous women?

Oh wait no, that wouldn't work

They did that at the cinemas. It was called Fatal Attraction. Oh, that poor bunny.

Looking for new cheap labour for her new shoe factories? You know that every Trump administration's visit abroad involves making money for the family.

There is an anatomical reason why I do not comfortably sit with my knees squeezed together.

If you're sandwiched in between two people, then you're just gonna have to suck it up.

Hate it. Also hate perfume spreading.

Posted in: UK pressured not to overlook Swedish claims to Assange See in context

Very strange that Wikileaks doesn't have anything against Russia or Trump. Hmm...

I would not put Snowden and Manning in the same group as Assange. For one, I don't think the former two ever smeared dirty things on the walls.

Mnuchin got completed owned by Maxine Waters in a recent hearing about the man-child's taxes. Called his bluff. And she wasn't about to let anyone tell her what she should do with the 'gravel'!

A great picture of a great leader leading a great nation.

Well, I wouldn't say Ikko is that great.

I find it strange that, out of all the stuff leaked by Wikileaks, practically nothing reflects badly on Russia. Just saying.

Posted in: Emperor's abdication stirs female succession debate See in context

They've been discussing this for years on end (as we found out recently), all the way up until the boy above was born. And they'll force his future wife to have kids and kids until it's a boy. I find it so suspicious his mother was pregnant with him when the imperial agency were getting really desperate.

The Japanese really are their own worst enemy. So many monarchies and even muslim nations have been led by women.

I hope the predecessor to this department also made sure Trump's father entered America legally. You know, Fred was born in Germany, although Fred's father was Swedish.

Posted in: What do you think will be some of the biggest challenges that Crown Prince Naruhito will face when he becomes emperor on May 1? See in context

One of the biggest challenges he'll have is distancing himself from a certain politcian who thinks he's the saviour and real emperor of Japan.

Posted in: Odd translations found on English websites for tourists in Japan See in context

I wish there was some freelance job translating these. Easy money, and I could with some extra cash. There's a lot of work to do, but whether they have money to pay you is another thing.


Depends. I use google to translate people's comments written in languages I have no knowledge of. I know it's not accurate but gives me enough hints to guess what they are saying. It's a valuable tool. I am not interested in learning those languages; I am certainly not paying anything for it.

You'd change your tune if you needed it for your own company or job. That is the whole point of this article. Who cares if someone is wearing a T-shirt with grammatically wrong English or French? Their jobs or lives don't depend on it.

I have no intention of viewing that video.

That 'art' in the photo looks very amateurish, at best.

Posted in: 30% of young Japanese say Diet not helping people's lives See in context

This is what happens when you get self-entitled old relics who were born with silver spoons in their mouths and whose only purpose of clinging on to their jobs is to line their own pockets. These people have no clue as to how the ordinary person's life is like and are very dismissive of complaints from little people struggling with everyday life and money.

It's must be nice knowing that their main supporters in the rural areas have votes worth five times that of urban-dwellers.
