A 28-year-old unemployed man....

It always starts out something like this. If Japan could eradicate unemployment, it'd stamp out crime completely.

There are more jobs available than there are people. It's on him to blame, no one else. If he can't handle a job, he better step up his game real quick.

Hopefully the JAL pilots are all juiced up and ready to go then. Gonna be a lot of flights, gotta make sure each pilot has enough drinks for the journeys.

Posted in: JAL says pilot evaded breath tests over 100 times since last year See in context

JAL has not decided how to reprimand the pilots.

How about first the Japanese Government make an example out of JAL and reprimand them? Ban them from airport operations until they cut the crap and actually test every single one of their airplane staff before flights? How about JAL clean house and rid of anyone on top, get rid of the cancer.

I don't ONLY blame the pilots, I would also blame JAL for OBVIOUSLY running a tight ship.

Male Japanese Exec 1: "We need more money and a bigger population, what do we do? "

Male Japanese Exec 2: "I got it! We shall encourage women to have babies and then raise their fees when they go for medical check ups!"

Male Japanese Exec 1: "I like it! Win-Win! Women have more babies and we have more money. We can't lose! "

Female Japanese Exec 1: "Won't that make it too expensive and therefore difficult for families to have children? It's costly as it is....... "

Both male Japanese Execs: "Quiet woman! Where's our coffee!?!"

Those three cops look pretty cute with their little plastic bullhorns. I guess it's almost time for the 7th inning stretch. I wonder if they are gonna play the telephone game with those when the alcohol levels rise.

"We will try to prevent such incidents by handling our equipment more carefully," Tsuneo Fujii, an official of the Osaka prefectural police's security division, said in a statement.

Well.......as long as you try, I guess it's ok. No harm done. I mean what would have been the worst that would happen anyway? A curious teenager stumbling upon it and showing it off to his friends, shooting up the school yard? Never.

Let's just bow, apologize, and act as if the taxpayers money are not going to waste.

Does the owner of the truck get the money?

Silly, this is Japan, of course not. The money goes directly to the Police Friday night Nomikai fund.

53 years old and throwing temper tantrums because of a bad parking job? Time to get a stuffed animal and learn to relax. If your biggest problem in life is a bicycle, you have an easy life!

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.

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.

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.
