Posted in: Air Japan pilot bumped off flight after failing breath test See in context

The pilot started drinking vodka at home before 5 p.m. and the company contacted him around 7:40 p.m. to request that he be on the flight. The company prohibits drinking in the 12 hours before a flight, and the pilot said he had not breached this regulation. The flight to Yangon was scheduled for 11 a.m.

Was the pilot on standby call that night?

If yes, he should've never started drinking at all.

Was the call a complete random surprise without notice?

If yes, blame the airline for not giving a proper amount of notice time. I mean sure, the flight was leaving at 11 am, but obviously the pilot needs to be there a lot earlier than 11.

The only reason she took the job was, because she actually wanted to do some work to contribute to society and help in some small way to make the world a better place.

She was tired of just sitting in the police koban, "working" and typing at the computer or going for daily bike checks at the local conbini.

My hats off to you glorious woman!

Posted in: Ex-policeman pleads guilty to shooting sergeant in 'koban,' citing mental stress See in context

Imoto was in charge of training the teenager, who graduated from police school in January last year and was posted to the police box about two weeks before the incident.

Prosecutors said the former policeman had become angry and frustrated with his work, which piled up as Imoto repeatedly directed him to correct documents the teenager had written.

Hmmm...... The kid was two weeks into the job.

As far as I can tell, either Imoto was a bad instructor, the THEN 19 year old was completely useless and never had a responsibility or job in his life, the Police Academy teaches NOTHING practical, or perhaps a little bit of all three?

But the accused's lawyers argued he was struggling with adjustment disorder due to psychological stress and his "capacity to judge between right and wrong and to control his behavior had been reduced prior to firing the handgun."

Wow! If you can't judge between right and wrong, you're definitely in the wrong profession. But then again, since this is Japan and the police force have nothing better to do but fill out paper reports and hassle bike riders, so maybe he was actually in the right profession.

In Hawaii there's a thing called the "moke factor."

A moke is basically a physically big bully with no job or education that could kill you with one punch. Long story short, most people are smaller than mokes and know better than to make one angry.

In Japan there is no such person as a moke, so punks like this think it's ok to mouth off to someone much larger than them. There are also little to no consequences for doing bad things in school here.

The teacher shouldn't have STARTED with a fist to the face, a slap to the cheek would've sufficed. But maybe now the yankii won't be so quick to seem so tough.

And by the way, the Yankii's little friend better learn how to focus the camera better next time.

Japan is in need of more workers...................yet they fire and arrest you because you kick it with some dirty people.

Good job Japan. If all companies knew the truth of their employees, at least 50% of the work force would also be fired and arrested.

I blame him for being sick and needs to be put to sleep. Seriously.

I blame the police for being completely useless. They need to be disbanded, all of them. Really, what good are they?

I blame her for having the ignorance of going to wherever it was. She's old enough to know what isn't right.

Everyone is a loser in this story. Thank you for printing such negativity.

Wow, what a concept.

Foreign visitors bring in money to Japan.

Now imagine if Japanese nationals also traveled around Japan freely at reasonable rates all year round. Not during Golden Week or Obon only at inflated prices. The economy would be even better than it is!

It's too bad, its much cheaper to travel abroad than it is to do it domestically. What if.........

Posted in: Osaka subway drivers win court case over right to grow beards See in context

Why is this even an issue?

Do beards improve or distract drivers from doing their job? A complete waste of time and money. Let them wear beards or not, who cares? Can they drive, that's all that matters.

When do people even see the drivers? Everyone is looking at their phones or watching the doors open and close, not a factor.

What a choice Japan. Train drivers with beards or airline pilots who drink on the job? I'll take not dying in the air for the win.

According to police, the two men, aged 21 and 22, who are vocational school students, have admitted to the charge and said they were drunk at the time, Fuji TV reported.

It's funny. Everytime we see a story where a drunk Japanese male "can't remember a crime due to being drunk." However these two foreigners can remember all of their illegal activity despite being drunk? Something does add up.

Either way, deport them all! The two degenerates and the police officers involved.

I work with a bunch of 11 year olds. While the majority are fairly competent and more or less have common sense, there are a few that make you go hmmmmmmmm.

There have been an instance or two, where a kid does something pretty foolish right in front of everyone, and it's like "kid, are you serious?"

While this story does seem incomplete, there may not be more to it then an unfortunate accident.

Posted in: Streaming TV is getting complicated See in context

Disney can keep their Marvel, I'm over it. Star Wars, I got all the blu-rays. I would like to see some old school Mickey Mouse Club, 90's live action movies or Disney animated shorts though.

But keep it going Netflix! Hopefully all this competition and over flooding the market will lower prices across the board. If every subscription was $5 a month (600 yen?) I think more people would subscribe to mulitple channels.

Where is Nickeloden - Nick at Nite in all this? I much rather see their 80's-90's programming than Disney's.

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.

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: "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!?!"

"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.
