Posted in: Tokyo 2020 Olympic organizers to change more event starting times to beat heat See in context

The 2020 Olympics will not be about who are the best athletes, it will be about who can survive the heat the longest. Rename the event the 2020 World Battle for Attrition Supremacy.

Posted in: New station on Tokyo's Yamanote line to be named Takanawa Gateway See in context

The railway company, also known as JR East, said the name of the station was decided based on suggestions submitted by the public.

Takanawa was the No. 1 choice of people, with 8,398 entries, while Takanawa Gateway placed 130th with 36 entries.

「(°ヘ°) puzzled, scratches head....

Japanese logic......if you try to make sense out of it, you will lose your mind.

It just shows that there was no actual vote involve, they already had a name picked out and wanted the public to feel as if they had a say in it.

If two cops, NHK, or anyone NOT delivering me a package, came and bothered me before I had my breakfast, I'd be pretty angry as well.

Posted in: Osaka to host 2025 World Expo See in context

I used to live in Osaka. I love Osaka. I still have many friends in Osaka. I would like to live there again someday.

However.

Osaka is a very dirty and seedy place. Osaka needs to stop being Tokyo Jr. and become a top player on their own. We shall see if this event can make changes necessary. Step up your game Osaka, clean it up, and show the world how it's done!

Although I don't think I have heard anything on the World Fair in decades, what is the World Fair exactly in 2018?

On a side note, how many of the people in that main picture even be around in 2025?

Posted in: 3 Keio University students arrested for sexual assaulting, robbing unconscious woman See in context

You guys are too lenient.

They need to make posters of these guys' faces an plaster them all over campus, saying have you seen these sexual predators? And then when caught, have them go to classes wearing a sign that says, I am a sexual predator. Then after a month, expel them, then arrest them, the castration.

Then have them pay restitution.

"I want to thank me..."

I like the Dog but this reeks of that ugly American self congratulatory mindset. Me, me, and me.

Congrats but learn a little humbleness.

I believe that is called light hearted humor, relax.

Snoop, you da man!

Ready to make an entrance, so back on up.........

"in April"................................how about "from November?"

Well, get your stabbing done before April while the getting is good.

These trains should definitely have some kind of checking procedure before passnegers get on.

Honestly, is it much different than from being on a plane? A bunch of strangers in one moving room for 2-3 hours. Chances are there are going to be some crazies on board while you're sleeping.

Wouldn't it have been easier to take pictures of the license plate?

It was his car he probably knows the make/model and plate number...

I wouldn't bet on it. Do you know how many people I've asked "oh what kind of car do you drive?" and they can't answer? Sometimes, I BARELY get a correct color out of the person.

Posted in: Man clings to car hood for 370 meters as thief gets away See in context

Not surprised at all. How many times have I seen cars left running with no passengers in combini and supermarket parking lots, just waiting to be stolen. I'm actually surprised more things aren't stolen with such carelessness. I contemplated many times, just to get in one of those cars, just to move it to another place, just to teach these fools a lesson, and to see their reactions of course.

Only arresting five is too few.There were more than that disturbing the peace.

Maybe that's all they could actually catch?

Posted in: Former ‘Mr Todai’ participant arrested for allegedly raping woman See in context

You obviously dont know about Japanese universities, it's quite common. The contests in the major Universities will often get some coverage on the variety talk shows, and some go into the "talent" business they are always referred to as a "former" Miss or Mr XXXXX University.

Obviously. That's why I asked. I've often heard or seen female contests of this nature, but never a male one.

What in the world is a "Mr. Todai?" I doubt anyone is interested in voting for any male college student in a beauty contest.

Good job hitting an elderly woman, hopefully karma gets you back real quick.

I wonder what the argument was about. Who had the tighter fighting pants or who had the cuter hair. Looks like he lost either way.

And now he also has to buy a new bicycle. Lose-Lose-Lose, loser.

(By the way, August 28 at 3 P.M. was a Tuesday. Time to get a part time job.)

the photo is brilliant. Could be a stand-in for the Olympic flag or any government event

It's not that it's a brilliant picture, its just a very bad crop job by whoever took or posted it. The bad editing job just adds to the madness.

Posted in: Quake shock absorber maker says products may have been used nationwide See in context

I think I am going to start a business.

How to teach company executives the proper way to make a sincere bow without hurting one's back. Extra credit lessons would be to teach them how to make a single tear run down their cheek on command.

I would be a rich man indeed!

Here's to the 2020 Olympics when their shock absorbers fail during a mid games earthquake, and all the participating countries sue the living daylights out of the Japanese government.

Cool Japan indeed!!!!
