At Mos Burger the buns actually look like that and not like some squished pancake aka McD.

Posted in: Teens sharing photos of themselves 'praying' for victims of Tohoku disaster cause stir See in context

Kabukilover, nice contribution! I guess it's really about whether we believe in the good of humanity or not. Let's give the kids the benefit of the doubt, not the politicians whose words are meaningless. The kids prayers were most likely sincere, they just don't know yet that life is not all about twittering and sharing.

Taking a purikura while praying is not the problem. It's the sharing of that moment online which makes this prayer all about "me, me, me" and not about the victims. That's like saying "Look at me, what a good person I am!" This kind of selfishness is maybe ok in America but clearly not positively received in Japan.

It's not voluntary if you are faced with losing your job.

Bitcoins are even more disparately distributed than real money. Why should I support another system that benefits mostly the rich?

Posted in: Honda considers opening board to foreigners See in context

Diversity has been shown to have a HUGE positive effect of corporate performance in countries where it is the norm, rather than the exception like Japan. That is why dozens of companies in Europe, and such leading companies in the U.S. as Coke, Pepsi, GM. Yahoo, IBM.... have either a foreigner or a woman as CEO.

How does having a foreign or female CEO change anything? CEOs basically all have the same personality type necessary to be a leader. A female CEO is no less masculine than a male CEO. Apart from that diversity is just a big image campaign, it's hip and trendy and no company can afford to tell the politically incorrect reality: More often than not females get hired just for their gender, not for their productivity. How do you think this affects overall corporate productivity? All those companies did fine without diversity for decades and now all of a sudden that's not true anymore?

Posted in: Honda considers opening board to foreigners See in context

Diversity has exactly zero effect on productivity. It's just a ploy by neocon lobby-groups to water down cultural identity. Yes, japanese companies are led by a team of corrupt old men. But there are more than enough talented young Japanese who can't find a decent paying job. Let them do it!

Oh, so sorry Mr. Weeaboo for criticizing the glorious, infallible and divine country of Japan (in fact people are only criticizing the Japanese government).

I support this. Japan fares best without the TPP anyway!

Posted in: Germany urges Japan to deal honestly with WWII past See in context

As said before, I'm sure the Germans are not only talking about Japan. Don't forget the other countries in Asia with blood on their hands. Japan has at least formally apologized for many crimes. Communist China has never apologized for anything. China hasn't even admitted the Tiananmen massacre, the violent colonization of Tibet and the continuing existence of death camps. The only East Asian nations who don't have to apologize are maybe South Korea and Taiwan. They are the only ones who are allowed to point fingers!

Posted in: Do you think Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has done a good job since his election a year ago? See in context

I don’t care about Abe's nationalist policies, they are just a sham for some of his right-wing voter base. In reality, he is just another neoconservative lapdog of the US, selling his country to multinational corporations (TPP).

Posted in: Tokyo police take 13 underage girls into custody for 'JK walking' See in context

So many are quick to blame "bad parents". This might be so in some cases, but it is also true that some of those girls come from solidly middle-class households.

Yes, but middle-class does not mean healthy and functioning family. I think that is what these girls are certainly missing.

Posted in: India outraged after female diplomat arrested, strip-searched in New York See in context

Yes, strip-searching is unnecessary under these circumstances. However, too many diplomats think they are some kind of Ubermensch who can do what they want without any consequences. Too many diplomats employ housekeepers under slave-like conditions precisely because they know that they won't be prosecuted.

Posted in: Japan hangs two death-row inmates See in context

If the death penalty doesn't work, why do murderers use it? The big difference is that they apply it immediately; not ten or fifteen years later.

You want the government to be on the same level as murderers and scum?

But I'm always surprised that fathers are allowed to bring in their young daughters into the male only sections?

Not everybody has pedophilic thoughts when they see naked children.

I hope for a failure of this business model. It doesn't attract the type of tourist anybody would want and only exacerbates the gambling problems of local people.

Proof to the Japanese people that hey are a superior "race".

Many weeaboos actually still believe that. But these kind shows have been common in many countries until the 1960s.
