I'm surprised the cops found him in a parking lot in another prefecture.

I'll only go and see it if they can guarantee Iceman Val Kilmer will do a loud teeth crunch at Maverick in the movie.

Call it 2020 eki. That's because no one even remembers there is a year 2019.

Posted in: When cars fly? Japan wants airborne vehicles to take off See in context

I hope there's a completely made up "S crank turn" on the flying vehicle road test for licenses as well. What better way to drive than to be tested on things that don't exist in the real world, but only on driving school courses.

Posted in: End of an era: Emperor's abdication to reset Japan calendar See in context

The upcoming end of the Heisei era was even reportedly a factor in the government's decision to implement death sentences this year against 13 members of the Aum cult behind a 1995 sarin attack. Government officials apparently wanted to a draw a line under the cult's attacks before the Heisei era ends. All 13 executions were carried out in July.

So, if the Emperor were ti never stepped down, those 13 members would never be executed?

nine officers rushed

The cops weren't doing anything else at the time, why didn't they give him a ride home? They are there to serve the public.

So basically viewers are paying the celebrities salaries here, great. Isn't there a free app or something that allows people to make straight donations to their favorite charities? Eliminate the middleman.

Does NK have a top ten ranking for hated nations? lol. How does one raise or lower in rank? Are there imaginary or simulated March Madness tournament brackets? Or are there darts thrown on a wall? I wonder when the movie Ten Things I hate about Japan will come out in theaters over there.

Jeez, leave the boys alone. It's a very slippery slope if we allow the miserable prudes to win.

Remember when Disney was just banging out enjoyable hit movies in the mid 90's (Cool Runnings, Heavyweights, Mighty Ducks, etc.....) where none of this controversial crap happened? I do.

Posted in: Fugitive apparently fled police station 30 minutes after seeing lawyer See in context

Stories like this make me think, what actually goes on at the Japanese Police Academy. What are they actually teaching new recruits? I wonder what would happen if one of them actually had to pull a gun, or take out cuffs or (gasp***) go out on patrol once in a while.

Posted in: Man arrested for molesting guy he thought was a woman See in context

After the victim resisted, Saito fled.

Define "resisted"

the incident was captured on street surveillance camera footage

I'm sure this got a huge pop back at the precinct. How long do we have to wait until it's on youtube? does anyone have a link?

the man was wearing what he thought were women’s clothes

It probably was

Quite telling to see how many here find molestation amusing.

9 times out of ten, molestation is definitely not a laughing matter and is a very serious crime.

but that 1 time out of ten, when it's under absurd circumstances, it's a very entertaining situation!

Posted in: Man arrested for molesting guy he thought was a woman See in context

Ahhh, where to begin here? You could literally go to any major train station in Japan at any time of day and spot at least 3 of these, if not more, Japanese guys who are more feminine and prettier than women. I'm sure Kenichi got what he was looking for, his victim just wasn't paid well enough.

I don't get the point of this article.

Is it talking about the fact that medical costs for people with smoking related health problems are expensive?

If yes, then, welcome to stating the obvious. If no, then what is the point here?

yeah, this is great and all recognizing the problems, but how about the government actually do something about it? how about we see some heavy fines, arrests, boycotts, strikes, whatever, anything to make the necessary changes needed?

Posted in: Japan driver's license to start showing expiration with Western date See in context

How about they NOT worry about the date on the license, but instead worry about getting rid of that absurd "S crank" turn in their exam test. Actually teach people how to drive, not teach them how to pass a course test. You know, the more important aspects of a licensed driver.

Posted in: 2 teachers fired over sexual misconduct; one arrested for secretly filming female colleagues See in context

"An offense report with the police, however, was never submitted."

This is how Japan has such low crime stats.

Submitting the report would also require work. Something Japanese police departments avoid at all costs.

Posted in: Police looking for suspect who threw octopus at condo over and over for one hour See in context

This is like a Vic and Bob sketch.


While they didn’t find any suspicious people lurking around, they did discover some suspicious seafood, in the form of a dead octopus which they said had been thrown against the building’s wall repeatedly.

This is why people need to have a bat or a long flashlight in their house.

You ever see the movie "Falling Down?" In the movie, Michael Douglass gets tired of being harassed and then someone tries to steal his briefcase. Long story short, Douglass grabs a bat and turns the tables, he chases the criminal and yells "Hey! You forgot your briefcase!!"

That moment was gold!

I would have loved to have been in Sapporo and see the fool wasting an octopus and trying to wake me up in the morning, when I have to go to work. You better believe I would run out with my bat and yell "HEY! You forgot your octopus!!!!!!"

So these guys can look like Johnny's, with the long permed hair, cute make up, tight clothes, sit on each other's laps, grab each other's junk, and carry men purse's........but they can't carry a parasol in the summer. That's great. Well, back to the 27 degree AC in my office......

Nothing says "cute" like a compact faded green hunchback looking car. I wonder how many young women they surveyed before making the final design.
