Well..........did he finish his assignments on time? If he did all that he was supposed to do, and on time, and if he's good at his job, you gotta let stuff sliiiiiiiiiiide....

Now if he was a bad worker, it's a problem.

Good, because if he never turned himself in, the cops would've never found him.

The only time I've talked to the attendants or workers to find my way, was a result of not having sufficient signs or color coded systems or something to make the hallways look different.

One of the best examples is in Osaka in the Umeda-Osaka station area underground. There are signs and all, but they are not organized well at all. One second you're headed towards the Tanimachi Line and then all of a sudden, boom, it's the Midosuji Line? wait a minute.........

Can we please get screening processes done on potential parents in this country?

If they pass, feel free to have a child.

If they fail, they immediately get tied or cut on the spot, they can make the choice on which.

Posted in: At high-tech Tokyo Game Show, old school ones are the best See in context

There's a lot of factors why retro games are more popular than the newer ones.

Paying endlessly for DLC and the redundant first person perspective games will never replace finding the RAFT in Zelda or the addictive manner of completing a Tetris line.

Cool Biz? Only if you still wear a jacket.

At the time of the incident, Yushin's mother was also home and police are questing her about her knowledge of what went on.

Soooo arrest them both now. Throw them both in jail. Question them later. Maybe next year or before the 2096 Olympics. Whenever you have some free time, I guess.

Posted in: Tokyo Medical University chooses 1st woman president after sexism scandal See in context

Was this woman given the job because of her gender or because she is the right person for the job?

Really? Why does everybody say this when a woman reaches a position of power. Is it so unthinkable that a woman be intelligent and hard working? I never see anybody questioning men about if they were chosen just because they're men. (which probably actually happens a lot more often than the reverse.)

I say it about men and women that don't deserve to be in power. It isn't about race or sex, it's about being competent. Hire based on skill, not based on seniority or the current scandal or issue plaguing the organization. In Japan it happens all too often.

The reason why people question it is because it so "conveniently" happened as soon as there was a problem. Hopefully the woman is more than skilled enough to fill the position, or at least given absolute power. Otherwise it's just a complete farce.

This is what happens when Police Officers pass a difficult "written test" but have no "in the line of duty" skills.

Posted in: Osaka to provide multilingual disaster information for foreigners See in context

Why are things always planned AFTER a disaster or incident? Shouldn't there be a plan "in case stuff happens" already? Can Japan NOT plan for the future, you know, anticipate unfortunate incidents and prepare accordingly?

Which would be a harder thing to admit?

You're an Arashi fan

You're a cop, looking for a faceless individual(s) who apparently stole pictures of Arashi.

You're the person to open this can of worms and actually ask the employee "Where's Arashi?"

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?
