Posted in: More Chinese try natto products as panacea for illnesses See in context

Real natto are harder even for japanese to tolerate. 90% smell reduction by freezing etc. is sold in stores. Tempeh from Indonesia is somewhat between natto and tofu with less smell. If you are going to cook, minds well use miso. Those that don't like natto smell, it is stronger smell version of soy sauce. I would say try tuna natto roll first.

Posted in: Abe offers sympathy, help to S Korea over ferry disaster See in context

Sending help is unnecessary and offensive. Did they bother to even ask? That sounds more than a little presumptive. You are clueless. Korean/Chinese has been taught distorted history. As a consequence they are haters. So if Japan offer help, they would take it as "(&)*, you think we can't handle the situation". Recent case in point, S korea ask for 10,000 bullet in UN africa operation. Japan send 10,000 bullet though UN. Later lots complaints from S koreans about offer was in public, and it was unneccessary and japan sent it for.... No words of thanks lol.

Laws are best to be interpret by elected official to fit the need of nation to some extent. So bullets can be interpreted as supplies and not a weapon.

Also, laws can be broken but prosecutors have option to not prosecute it.

"Extreme leftists, as in communists? Maybe the Okinawans are turning militant to get the US military presence off their islands." All the rape and atrocity during ww2 by usa military and occupation until 1970s probably some okinawans have extra resentment. Lucky for rest of japan, propaganda distored history taught dampened the resentment.

"his hardline stance on diplomacy with neighbors China and South Korea."

So stupid to travel to there. Lucky for him he already lived life expectancy. Also if he is drug trafficker, it is great news for japan. Japan have less drug supply plus saved bundle on catching and prosecuting etc.

Posted in: Is Japan really racist? See in context

Smart humans base their assumption on facts. "Two, I am an English teacher (nope)" lots whites teached english so it is NORMAL to ask if some white was one. Often times, whites are treated extremely well. I think you are racist and don't even know too. Look how usa treat mexicans, especially when white pushed indigenous population from south usa. I bet you that you would not move to predominantly black neighborhood in usa for a year.

Get real. If it was not for microsoft bailing out apple plus giving it protection, things like itune would not be possible. Microsoft wisely knew that since it had monopoly on os, it will not able to profiteer from itune type service nor become dominant cell phone service.

I am more and more convinced that north korean leader is evil rich smart and powerful man. Only this year, I beginning to see if there's unification, it could be s korea merging to north.

I also see possibility that when fake oppressive communist in china is toppled, some will run to north korea.

I think no one will return. Area should be used to create new co2 nuclear plants as well as nuclear storage and burnt ash trash dump(mix with cement).

One thing I hate to see is evil connected people get over compensated. It seems they are using this as an excuse to steal electric power system and nuclear power.

Wiretapping is expected from world's biggest spy and military country. I now realized that espionage is common and evil connected people get info to use it as inside trading etc. to have the edge in stock and trade negotiation etc. I guess even back in ww2 usa was expert and all radio transmission of japan etc. was deciphered.

I think he SHOULD be punished a little, but not resign. It create oppitunity for the worse elite to ripoff shareholders.

Unfortunately for 99.9% of humans, there are various evil excessively greedy people trying to ripoff others. In usa, it would be like way way over compensation of evil connected executives and director etc. Oil, lawyers, war machines, lobby, media, private federal reserve bank, pac, etc. I now believe usa invaded afghanistan since taliban profiteered from some opium instead of old traditional evil. Now afghan probably export 10-20 times as much and profiteer old evil, perhaps they were same profiteer from chinese opium war time.

If that's the case, they should stop hiring temp workers. Plus if it was usa, they would be paid $100,000 per year minimum. Of course they can only work short period before their radiation limit is up so harder to hire permanent workers.

If earthquake was in usa, both electric and GE would been bankrupt. It was bad designed plant by usa GE with poor procedure in triply bad location. It was in low area with ground water, near earth quake, and tsunami prone area.

"Thirty-five years ago, Dale G. Bridenbaugh and two of his colleagues at General Electric resigned from their jobs after becoming increasingly convinced that the nuclear reactor design they were reviewing -- the Mark 1 -- was so flawed it could lead to a devastating accident. "

Everyday is not every single consecutive day, but rather normal ordinary day. Japan has been using less than 1% of gnp on defense and it should pump it up to 1.5-2% gradually. There will be more threat from china etc., plus there will be some form of global catastrophe when oil become more scarce.

Law is right. Many people misuse or misunderstand the meaning of allah, which should just be god in language. So it can easily be said god of muslims. Jihad is also misunderstood and abused words so it should be outlawed too.
