Posted in: Woman fatally stabbed by boyfriend on street in Osaka Prefecture See in context


What kind of little boys carry a knife, a kitchen knife it has been reported, around ??? You can lash out , as we all have, with a verbal assault but it takes a complete pos to attack someone with a knife . Hang him high and save us taxpayers, the ones on this forum who actually live here, the expense

And there are people in Japan, people who need help to survive financially due to circumstances beyond their control.

Charity begins at home.

Look after the people here first before you flash money around just to keep up with the Joneses

Posted in: 5 unsung films that dramatize America's rich labor history See in context

Considering this is an online Japanese publication, why would anyone care about ' America's rich labor history ' any more than that of any other country??? America is not, as most Americans tend to believe, the centre of the world and most people actually don't give a hoot about the place .

Yeah... Turns out it doesn't have a good meaning...but ...I am on my second ' pajero' and they are awesome cars, especially in snow.

Agreed with many of the above ...this looks suspiciously like a Renault.

Everyone deserves a life....but as Thatcher said ' it's lonely at the top.'

Were her friends vetted? What is to say she didn't discuss sensitive political matters or divulge confidential information? There is a huge security risk here. That seems to be the main concern.

Usyk was rocked yesterday by body shots and Joshua's corner should have capitalised on that...bad tactics. Could have gone the other way. Massive turnaround in round 10.

Great victory for Callum Smith btw!

Typical Japanese 60 year old with an ' I'm your sempai ' attitude. On the other hand though, the other guy could have just apologized. Both in the wrong here.

This is what is needed . More of these attacks on home soil against specific targets. The IRA was too indiscriminate in its attacks on British targets and lost support of many who were sympathetic to their cause. Pinpoint hits, that's the way to do it!

Posted in: Finland asks: Does a prime minister have a right to party? See in context

The article raises a good much did she drink? Too much to be able to make crucial decisions? Finland has a very potentially aggressive neighbor next door and they don't have NATO to watch their backs. If you want to ' party ' and ' get down' with your ' gurlfriends' ( sic) then maybe you don't have the maturity to head a country.

Posted in: Police to revise rules for VIP protection after Abe shooting See in context

Very bad journalism...

Quote ..

One officer dispatched from the Tokyo metropolitan police force and several local police officers were in his immediate vicinity, but none was able to stop the assailant before he fired two shots at the former prime minister from behind.

The assailant fired one shot that missed and made Abe turn around. Total incompetence on the part of the police there allowed the second shot. It wasn't a case of them not being able to because they didn't even try to.

JT should be more careful about the accuracy of the stories they run.

Posted in: Japanese government worried young adults aren’t drinking enough alcohol See in context


Unfortunately life itself is not 100 percent safe and to date has a mortality rate of 100%.

What's next? No cars? No airplanes? No hobbies? No bicycles? No swimming? No running?

If you want to take away the risk from human activities, you take away human activities.

Life is for living, it's not how long you live, it's how well you live it and if someone likes a beer or a whiskey or whatever, in moderation of course, then good luck to them. And if you don't want to drink alcohol, or smoke, or drive a car, or sit on a train, or take a plane, or swim in the sea, or ride a bicycle, that's fine too.

Was born into a Catholic family... baptism...first communion... confirmation..... If that isn't cult ish in nature then I don't know what is... Agree with many posters here ..all religions are cults as they tell you what to think, what to do, not what to do.... Fortunately I got quickly out of that nonsense when I went to uni.

There is no proof of rape at the moment. There is proof of an organized pay for sex orgy.

Posted in: Record high number of ambulances struggling to find hospitals in Japan See in context

As some posters have I think very correctly pointed out, the whole ambulance system here is a joke.

You ring for an ambulance. The local fire station sends an ambulance. Then they have to figure out where to take you.

A central system that dispatches ambulances from designated hospitals, without them having the option to say no would solve this.

But come on, this is Japan.... ' We have done it this way for a long time and that's the way we are going to do for a long time. '

Apply this formula to anything here.

Japan Inc ... The land of the setting sun.

Critical because who is going to be paying for their security? I doubt biden is phoning kishida with his credit card details! Or maybe Harris and Obama are using airmiles?? No, it's going to be a total unnecessary tax payer burden when the country has far bigger issues that need financial support. Let them attend it by zoom.

Wtf Japan

Did I ever write it will cause everyone to leave??? Those with a more refined cultural palate will ditch Netflix whilst at the same time have no desire to join Disney.

I am sure Disney is raking it in. Easy money .

Posted in: Obama among international dignitaries expected at Abe state funeral See in context


It's not an issue of ' not paying your tax or just leave. ' according to many political pundits who know what they are talking about, there is no provision in current legislation to fund a state funeral for an ex prime minister. It's a gross misuse of public funds.

The us is just like alot of their citizen.... Big mouths who can't keep their noses out of anyone's business and when the push comes to shove, it all turns out to be a lot of hot air.... Yeah America... You did a great job telling the Communists in Vietnam what to do...and then again in Afghanistan....and you really showed Putin how tough you are when he reclaimed Ukraine... But at the same time, your own country is a complete mess... So why don't you stop interfering in things that don't concern you ( please correct me if I am right in saying America has never been elected to be the world's police ) and put your own house in order first
