Shogun36, “The inmates used to have birthday parties or special events.”

Birthday parties for individuals, or one party per month for everyone with a birthday that month? I do know prisons have special items on the menus for New Year meals as such.

I don't remember the details on that. I just remember hearing her stories about it in general.

The inmates used to have birthday parties or special events. At said events, the inmates would get lavish spreads including turkey, cake, and so on.

Sorry I have to dismiss that even beyond the standard of an urban myth. The food budget per prisoner per day is ¥500.

Hey, that's what she told me. Whether it was true or not, I don't know. But I am also sure each prison has their own set of rules in effect.

Posted in: Expensive tissue paper at Osaka prison prompts human rights concern See in context

I used to know a woman who worked at a female prison facility.

The inmates used to have birthday parties or special events. At said events, the inmates would get lavish spreads including turkey, cake, and so on.

My friend the prison guard said that their meals were a lot better than her own. That is because her salary was so low, she couldn't afford to make spectacular lunch boxes for herself.

So it looks like the money the prisoners pay for daily items aren't going to the prison guards. Someone else is reaping the benefits here.

Well, 10 day Golden Week this year for the Emperor. Might as well make next year's obon last beyond the entire Olympics in 2020 as well. Shut down all of Japan so everyone can help with the event. But even then, you'll probably be short without foreign assistance.

I always feel like smokers are treated like 2nd hand citizens here anyways.

That is because they are.

Raise the cost of cigarettes up to 5000 yen a pack, today.

And then things will slowly work out on its own by the time 2020 comes around.

The ignorant acts have always been there. The truly dumb just choose to post them online just for the almighty "like" or to go "viral." We've all done it in some form or another, there was just no platform to do it. We just did it for fun. All employers have to do is fire these fools. Problem solved, the kids will be out of money. The only people that lose, are the ones doing dumb things.

Posted in: Woman arrested for robbing store says she needed money for Christmas Eve date See in context

> Police in Koshigaya, Saitama Prefecture, said Friday they have arrested a 24-year-old woman on suspicion of robbing a DVD and CD rental store on Dec 24.

Police said the woman, Misana Koyama, has admitted to the charge and quoted her as saying she needed the money for a date with her boyfriend on Christmas Eve.

According to police, Koyama entered the store — where she used to work part-time — at around 5 a.m. on Dec 24

Wow, this happened at 5 am? And the date was later that night? Talk about being well prepared.

By the way, that's a lot of 24s in the story.

I'm guessing because of the time of the robbery, the store was also opened for 24 hours a day?

and I'm the 24th comment!!!!! winning!

It's funny, no one is even mentioning anything about the fact that the precinct has just lost two officers with one incident.

I wonder if the cops will now reconsider the training and handling of rookies. Meh, since this is Japan, probably not.

Great.

Here's some ground breaking future news for you. It WILL be extremely hot. It WILL be fatal for some. It WILL be crowded during the Olympics. None of this will be a surprise.

Get on it.
