We all knew the mega typhoon was coming. Why did no one help them to prepare properly beforehand?
It's people like this who have the highest risk during these disasters.

This picture is nothing but out of touch old people.
Their ways of thinking can't possibly be what the younger, future generation needs.

@1glenn are you dense? the amazon forest provides support to the entire earth's climate. What happens to it affects ALL of us. It's he, the very corrupt leader of brazil that are violating international sovereignty by intentionally destroying it, year after year, despite receiving financial support from many countries that are intended as a bribe to stop what he's doing.
If you ask me, he should be buried alive.

For people talking about respecting culture: Just because it's a culture doesn't meant it's a good thing.
In fact, like hunting dolphins into a bloodbath trap, is nothing short of barbaric.
Japan has a lot of great qualities. This old tradition? Not one of them.
Don't these guys eat enough fish already? The earth's oceans are stretched thin already.

Can't we just address the elephant in the room and acknowledge that most expats in japan are probably guys, who are english teachers in some form, who came to score highschoolers. lol

@email@example.com found the chinese who blindly believes what their government allows them to know lol.
china is one of the worst dictatorships in recent history. They harvest organs from people while they are still alive. of course HK wants to get as far away from chinese politics and rule as possible, the reality is worse than any horror film.

Talked with a chinese friend the other day, he didn't know about the tiananmen square massacre in 1989 and thought a lot of rumours regarding the chinese were made up. I made a prediction to him that the current dictator won't leave power unless there is a revolution or assassination and that we'll see 10 years later how it turned out.

Japanese have some really talented young skaters, but it seems like many of them were ushered into skating by their parents, thus they practice it as a job, not as enjoyment/hobby. What happened to letting your kid choose what they want to do?
Don't know what the case is for this kid, but this is my observation at least.

@Vince Black I dont think they are the worst, considering how awful driving in asia is in general, but the Japanese have no sense of teamwork or unity in any part of their society, which is especially important on the road.
Everyone is "me, me, me" and do what they want without thinking and that's when these accidents occur.

Funny to see how many americans here support trump despite the wall of evidence against him.
How ignorant can you be? I'm not even american and it's pissing me off to see how dumb people can be.
He should be impeached and jailed for treason++.
not saying i support hillary. they are both filthy, corrupt crooks either owned by the russians or the banks.

In a country with this large of a population, multiplied with common bullying in school, work place, kouhai/senpai power struggles, overwork, other pressure etc. (not knowing if it contributed), these crazy people are going to explode sooner or later. It's super sad and might have been avoided. Now it depends if future incidents can be avoided by learning from this.

There couldn't be a single thing less related from learning discipline than hair color. wtf are they thinking.

This isn't newsworthy just because you forgot about tipping, an old and outdated system anyway.
And if you saw anything during the 6 years, you'd know that a lot of the Japanese politeness is actually an act to not have to deal with something, or ableness to speak the truth. Ofc, not all of it, but a lot, especially in the work place.

Absolute garbage TV, along with friends. you could even see where the jokes are headed before the episode starts, and when it happens, it's just trash.
Seinfeld is the king of TV, and even when you know where the joke was headed, you were looking forward to it, because even without a laugh track, the actors knew what they were doing in order to make real comedy.
big bang, friends, it's for the simple minded.

The biggest problem with Japan, and what discourages many to seek job in a Japanese company is exactly these old fashioned ways of thinking and absolutely horrid working culture.
If they can use common sense and solve this problem, it will be a much more attractive place to seek jobs as a human, rather than a robot.

In the current day when journalism is weak and cowardly, bought by sponsors and whatnot, it's nice to have wikileaks who say it like it is, even if it's unfiltered material.
The journalism world brought it upon themselves when they lost their integrity.

Always some military aircraft crashing or having issues especially in Japan. Why??
Lack of training? Poor maintenance? It's starting to become as usual as public shootings are in the states.

Some people argue that it puts a name to an era. But the emperor doesn't have any real power, nor does the meaning of the era. It's just for show, thus, pointless.
People were also saying happy new year, like, what? Literally nothing except calendar prints are going to change, and time-wise nothing happened. C'mon ppl..

@Texas A&M Aggie & @kawabegawa198
Yes, he's also one of the most criminal presidents in your country's history. In bed with the arabs, the russians and NK. Doing only what is good for his personal business.
The only real correct answer is that trump should be impeached, tried for treason and possibly executed for his crimes against your country and the world.
If you think otherwise, I guess you're a part of that great 'americans are dumb' stereotype.. buut whatever floats your boat.

Kim is clearly doing something different than his dictator father and grandfather.
Tell that to the slaves who are eating rats to survive, or giving up their friends/parents, resulting in their lineage being executed for treason.
As a newspaper you're morally bound to not spew this kind of crap.
Like really? What kind of bubble do these guys live in.

Japan, a country so associated with development and the latest tech, sure are faaar behind on the human side of things. And it's the dumbest and simplest issues of all. Just legalize it. Literally nothing in your lives will be affected, except some others may be more equal to you.

People are so freaking dumb. That includes both of them.
Japanese people give up so easily, and death is the only way out? Come on... how weak.
