Japan should ditch its anachronistic stuffy laws like this. It's 2014 for Buddha's sake!!

what a wonderful country! it's kind of surprising that they have the guts to organize an event like this in a prudish nation like Japan, where they do everything yes, but never in public! XD

if lived in the UK for even a short while they won't let you donate, at least that's what I was told last time I tried 3-4 years ago.

Posted in: Are Japanese growing less heat-resistant? See in context

I think that A/C abuse is rampant here in Japan (Y_Y) they really keep temperatures too low in shops, which of course upsets our body system. I am lucky enough to live in an apartment that is not that hot and ventilated so I don't use it at all, just before sleeping I set it on 'dry' for 5-10 mins to cool the room off if necessary.

I keep saying they should make a law to set a limit on the minimum A/C temperature permitted in public places; I know that town halls and the like have internal regulations for that, but it's not enough. aside from letting people's internal thermometers work better there are other benefits: if A/C temperatures are kept higher, we will have less hot air pumped out and the cities will be naturally cooler instead of artificially hotter like they are now (Y_Y)

ecology, this mysterious thing [for Japan].

Posted in: The fuzzy logic behind Japanese attachment to kanji See in context

modern Japanese is unthinkable without kanji. isn't that amazing that you can actually figure out the meaning [or approximate meaning] of a word without necessarily know it nor how to read it if you know the kanji it's written with? and I am not even going to start to rant about the marvelous charm and philosophy behind them [I don't want to bore you to death with my kanji otaku ramblings]. I'd never do without kanji, thank you very much.

outrageous to say the least. can't help thinking these people have some serious guardian spirits in the govt or the courts, or maybe even more likely Japanese law is a joke.

Posted in: Hashimoto says allied soldiers raped women after D-Day See in context

it's particularly serious when the one who opens it is a politician, someone who should somewhat feel responsible [and accountable] because he's supposed to represent others. what a twat.

Posted in: Hashimoto says allied soldiers raped women after D-Day See in context

it's an historically documented fact that soldiers/warriors have been raping women since the dawn of mankind, but I'd like people to actually support their [unfortunate, in this case] utterances with substantial and documented proof before opening their mouths. a marvelous practice that seems out of fashion nowadays.

Posted in: Japanese parents shocked to learn their baby girl’s name has inappropriate meaning See in context

the parents were very lucky to find an employee who was aware of the problem and took the time to inform them; I'm sure they'd be even more shocked if their child went to them with the dictionary when she was already in school (T_T)

Posted in: George Takei sees gay pride beginning in Japan See in context

people should be allowed to do what they want as long as they don't hurt their neighbor, and I'm not talking about moral issues [if you are offended by two same-sex people's happiness then it's YOUR problem]; being gay has NEVER hurt anyone but the very people who are gay and not accepted by society. there are enough humans on the planet, actually way too many, making kids already and besides, gay couples can have kids too, it's 2014 for Buddha's sake.

Posted in: Former Aum member Hirata jailed for 9 years See in context

even the 'simple' act of brainwashing people taking advantage of their vulnerability should be a crime with an adequately severe punishment. [aside from the few who are actually in death row] they're getting away way too lightly, including the fact that their 'colleagues' are actually still dispensing 'pearls of wisdom' since the cult hasn't even been disbanded. it's all truly very disgusting.
