Posted in: Tokyo named most liveable city in world by Monocle magazine See in context

klausdorthJun So how come that only "Monocle" ranks Tokyo number 1? Mercer's and AEU show another picture, as do many other sites. Something must be wrong here!

they just use different parameters to analyze and rank the data, therefore get different results. [that's why they use different namings for the lists]

I don't think Tokyo is so bad, in fact I am not suprised it made top of the list. of course this is my personal opinion.

maybe she just had a miscarriage, if one intentionally dumps a fetus in a toilet she'd be a total moron to call a plumber afterwards. accusing someone of murder without having enough details is not a very logical thing to do, Jim. plus, overstaying your visa does not necessarily make you a murderer.

Posted in: Why do Japanese people seldom hug friends or family in public? See in context

Japanese don't really do the "skinship" thing. it took a long time just to hold hands in public for couples - which is kind of cute, but a bit childish I guess. More "skinship" please!

Posted in: Why more Japanese are staying home See in context

because traveling from Japan is a total rip off and it's not Bubble Time anymore. a 2-way ticket to any European town costs at least 30% more than if you took off from Europe exactly on the same plane. it's time to put an end to this middle-man mafia mentality.

it is "unique" because it is the first such international event held in Japan, that's what makes it different.

Posted in: World's first 'otaku' summit opens in Japan See in context

Otaku Summit signed the birth of the Inetrnational Otaku Event Association, that aims to bring together Japanese subculture-focused events all over the world, in order to exchange info, knowledge, guests, etc. crossing borders, culture, race, religion, everything. It's a literally historic watershed moment for Japanese subculture.

Posted in: Cross-dressing Matsuko Deluxe: AKB opening Tokyo Olympics 'would embarrass Japan' See in context

Aso and his mates are under the impression that "Cool Japan" [whatever they think it is] is really cool and the AKB producer has got enough money and connections to get a prime spot on the organizing committee - being this Japan, which we all know is run a bit like a mafia syndicate and an old boys club, we can get an idea of why the guy has got carte blanche to promote his stuff on the big world stage. AKB is unfortunately part of modern, let's say current, Japanese [sub]culture and it's going to be hard to convince the old boys club otherwise, especially if it means lost revenue for them or their friends. I'd rather see more talented people there, and if it really has to be idols methinks the five little ranger-like ones are much better [and sportier, too!] though Japanese pop [esp. the idol kind] is mainly trash, unfortunately (Y_Y)

badsey3 since she hit her father with a baseball bat, it was probably safer to keep her away from the family; at that age she probably wanted to be on her own herself [I would]. let's hope she doesn't really get out at 20 - plus she should get at least some psychiatric help while behind bars, if anything to realize what the hell she did and repent.

when I was 18 the best thing my parents could do for me is to give me food/drink when needed and maybe help with a mock test but especially LEAVE ME ALONE.
