That's just great. As a first timer I picked coming to Tokyo during Rugby (/s). I wanted to experience Halloween. Guess the only saving grace is most of my time there will be after Rugby is over.

Come on guys. Just from reading this article you hardly know what the details are. Quit condemning the school system or teacher until you have the facts.

Sometimes people make lousy decisions. I know I've made my fair share. He paid with his life for his decision. Best wishes for his loved ones.

Think about it... USA dominance is not going anywhere, it's truly a country of business and humans flock from all over the world for a piece of the American Pie. Politics is good theatre but in the USA it's always about the money..

Well said "JustMyThoughts". Most of the negative commenters do not understand the comment above.

I'm not going out that way. Once I start needing a nappy, it's a bottle of brandy and a whole bunch of pills for me.

I understand what you mean. But when that day finally arrives for you and it's time to carry out your plan your survival instincts might just kick in.

Unlike the USA, where people often look down on others who have low paying jobs,

Lousy statement above. I never understand someone's need to generalize.

Relationships can be difficult - lots of emotions and people acting irrational. Relationships while married, well that's just plain wrong. I would hope his wife had already started divorce proceedings and that this guy finally gets some help.

Never watched it and I guess I never will. Not sure if my life is better or worse for that. I enjoy a good book or conversation with a friend more. Just an opinion.

Smith,

Awesome comments.

I always appreciate your input and I agree with you so often that it is mad.

Sorry but I'm not a fanboi. 86% of your oil goes thru that strait. If you do not want to participate then plant a few of those ridiculous oversized fans off your coast.

It would be really swell if everyone (Dems, Repubs, et. al)would get to work. American politics is like a GD fourth grade class of whiners and rabble rousers.

I never thought I would hear this from Chip...... nailing both sides of the aisle! Thank you Chip and very well written and I could not agree with you more! Well done Sir!

I foresee this initiative having about the same impact as Premium Friday.

Underrated comment of the day shown above.

This works until management wants a meeting and most people are supposedly working from home. What about a meeting via cam you say? Then management finds out people are out running personal errands instead of at home telecommuting. It only works for a short period of time and then it's cancelled and everyone is back to the office permanently.

Posted in: Saudi Olympic official reportedly hugged female hotel worker in Tokyo See in context

What a disgusting country Saudi Arabia is.

Well then mark it off your bucket list of places to visit. I love it when people generalize. I suspect most Saudis would not "hug" a woman they do not know - yes there is probably more to the story. Japan has a certain culture and so does Saudi Arabia. You should certainly do your best to respect that country's culture and traditions that you are in. I love Japan, but why do they have certain sections on trains for women?

Posted in: Japan sets up working group on impact of Facebook's Libra See in context

Given that Facebook can't protect user data

If you're that concerned then don't sign up for Facebook. Most of it is just a photo op for the Democrats to rail against the system and grab votes. Use a freaking ad blocker like UOrigin and delete your tracking cookies using CCleaner. It's just that simple.

Only a fool would allow this company to handle their financial affairs.

Then simply opt out of Libra. It's backed by major credit companies so check your freaking statements like you should normally be doing anyway. It's really just that simple.

People suffer from extreme paranoia.

Posted in: Abe apologizes to relatives of leprosy patients for their suffering See in context

I do want people treated with compassion. But 1907.... We simply did not have the extensive medical or scientific knowledge to know much about the disease so I'm not sure placing blame on the governmental institutions is totally warranted. I'm in the U.S. so maybe there is more here culturally that I do not understand, regardless, I still feel heartbroken for the families and individuals involved.

 I have no doubt this goon is guilty,

and how about the good old USA? Aaaa? please explain the following story:

Donald Trump Has Been Accused Of Raping An Advice Columnist In A Department Store Dressing Room

If you know he is guilty then where are your facts? Where are the court documents you reviewed? But I was waiting for a comment like this. What the heck does President Trump have to do with this young lady and man? If the commenters are so anti-Trump move out of the U.S.A for gosh sakes. Your comments about Trump have no relevance with this case. Give it a freaking rest. And your username is totally wrong.

Yet atrocities that happened in peace time, for example slavery and segregation no one has ever been punished for that or had continuous compensation. 

I politely beg to differ. That bad word "quotas" for: college admissions, college scholarships and grants, public company hiring, Federal and State government hiring, etc. etc. etc. All this for people who never experienced the segregation or slavery but benefit immensely from it from ancestors they never knew. It never ends.
