Name one expression from OZ, NZ, or England that catches on like American lingo. The States rules linguistically in slang. Besides, this is an excellent article about an old ship, screw the doubting Thomas' !

The gal on the left may be local, the other two definitely are not of this land. And what are they grinning about ? That one can get lucky with them if one plays one's cards right ? Therein is the blasphemy !!

Beer gardens are overrated: overpriced, over-crowded, and overtly empty of festive atmosphere, and these three middling-looking gals don't do much to improve the picture. And the flat warm beer more or less completes the tableau of mediocrity.

Yes, Nick's life has really hit the skids, yet he keeps a game face. Maybe he has learned a lesson about the price of fame.

I was out there today during the day and they look more like 10,000 bags of trash cluttering the beach. Cool night show, not so much during the day.

Posted in: New program warns elderly against 'ore ore' scams See in context

The whole "ore, ore" is bigtime Japan only, no other country has such a large number of wealthy elderly who can be so easily swindled by such an obvious scam. The whole "protect the family from shame" thing is so Japanese. This is a huge industry here, many Yaks making 100 mill a year from this. Show me any other country where this is so prevalent.

Posted in: In some countries, there are moves to ban or restrict the wearing of religious clothing and symbols such as burqas, veils, head scarves, skullcaps, turbans and crucifixes in public places like schools See in context

Everyone's tired of ancient religions cramming their rules down everybody else's throat and that's a huge part of this movement. Why should one religion rule supreme over all the others ? Having women cover their faces and heads is merely a two-thousand-year old barbaric way of forcing women to grovel to the unbridled egos of men. It is so obvious it is laughable yet everybody cowers. I'm sick of it. Let's all tear each other's faces off over whose invisible best friend is better than the others'. That makes sense !

I myself have watched sumo for 25 years will never watch it again, I swear. As a sport, it's had its day in the sun. Go away sumo and Haku-ho-hum. Don't forget to turn off the lights on your way out.

All this calling people with fetishes "sick" is just so much hot air. If your readers had it their way everybody in the country would be doing time for their "sick" behavior. Besides, who are you to judge ? It's a pretty harmless fetish and prevents even more reprehensible crimes like rape and murder. I mean, it's laughable. And you want to put these people in prison for it ?

Posted in: Star Channel to air 'Spartacus: Blood and Sand' See in context

I have already seen all the episodes of this series and it has appalling violence and gorge-rising full-frontal male nudity in abundance. Prob the censors will mosaic those bits but there is a lot of it and it is a real turn-off. I actually cannot recommend anyone watching this series under the age of 18 at least. Oh, and the main actor has come down with cancer so the series has been shelved.

My wife has had her breasts groped scant meters from my house by a junior high school boy and when I reported it to the keystones they just yawned and wanted to know how well-endowed she was. Great police-work !

Posted in: Kobayashi leaves jail after hot dog contest fracas See in context

 I agree with melonade: if a foreigner tried that here he'd be cooling his heels bigtime after being interrogated for 12 hours by the keystones and then made to sign a forced confession and then sentenced to 3 months for "disturbing the peace". Kobayashi should consider himself blessed.

Posted in: Anti-whaling activist Pete Bethune gets suspended prison term See in context

Rare that a Japanese court would show leniency, they must be bowing to international pressure. There's no way they did this out of a show of sympathy. Bethune should count his lucky stars he's not doing ten long ones. Justice served for once, yet not without a certain foreboding.

Posted in: Confused by Japan’s cycling laws? You aren’t the only one See in context

I've been riding bicycles, motorcycles, and driving cars here for 25 years, and by far the most dangerous is bicycle riding: on any given day I have at least a half dozen close calls with inattentive bicyclists who seem to not have the foggiest notion about which side of the road they should be on, what their light is for, what stop signs mean, what a red light means, etc, etc. I could have been on the slab ten times over if not for maintaining the extreme vigilance necessary to stay alive on the road here. Don't go out on the roads today you'll be in for a big surprise. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Posted in: How come so many people were prepared to write off Japan's chances at the World Cup before the tournament even began? See in context

  Like I said before, soccer is a fluke game and a rigged game: fluke because of the huge goal and irregular ball and rigged with the PKs. Anyone can win given the right circumstances, and even the best can lose under the same.

Posted in: Netherlands beats Japan 1-0 See in context

Japan lost as if any other outcome was predicted. Take a look at the way their players cried like babies whenever they came into contact with Dutch players: they grabbed their faces or legs like they had been hit with sledgehammers when replays clearly showed they weren't even touched ! Crybaby team deserves what it got. Why celebrate mediocrity ?!

Posted in: World Cup probably already over for Japan See in context

Of course Japan won't amount to anything in the "Wold Cup" (as was spelled in a sport bar in Tokyo today) but , hey, ganbarimashita deshoo ?! Besides, the Stanley Cup is on, who cares about footy.

Posted in: Talking trash See in context

Many people say there are no trash cans because of the AUM thing from 15 years back wherein bombs were said to have been placed in them. However, 15 years on, this seems an unlikely excuse. I have bemoaned the lack of public trash cans for 25 years here yet it never changes. The reason must be that people here think of anywhere outside their own house as fair game for lobbing their trash as, hey, it's not their place so who cares ? Also, the babying nature of J society toward its charges leads them to conclude anything goes as society will take care of it.

Posted in: No train trip would be complete without an ekiben boxed lunch See in context

Ekiben are foul distasteful culinary abominations bereft of any beneficial ingredient, cold, tasteless, and an insult to the notion of food as pleasing to the palate. Avoid them at all costs, gimme a ham and cheese sando any ole day of the week.

I was in New York recently and was standing in that exact spot in Times Square and would have been killed had I been there at that time if the bomb had not been so incompetently built. This guy is scum, abandoning his wife and kids for the glory of 60 virgins in the after life, what an inconsiderate murderous jerk.

Posted in: Japan going frugal with Forever 21 Ginza opening See in context

These kind of cheaper shops are a godsend to the deflating economy here, finally somebody has some sense to open shops which normal people can afford to shop in. Those flagship shops for all the top brands are an embarrassment to average people, they should downsize or at least reduce their ostentatious ways. The time of riches are past, return the stores to the tastes of the common people.

Posted in: 4-yr-old girl falls to death from 6th-floor hotel window See in context

Japanese parents have very little common sense. Just stand at any intersection on any given day anywhere in the country and watch how many cars go by with kids inside freely roaming about in the cabin, even leaning out the window or wiggling wee hands through the sun roof. There's almost no reason to open a window in a hotel, Japanese are very big on privacy and would never freely open a hotel window. Either something is fishy here or this ranks as gross negligence on the part of the parents. Who would let their kid jump up and down on hotel room beds to begin with ? Thoughtlessness is no excuse for allowing your child to die so needlessly.

I have seen it in IMAX 3D, very amazing, but not bad in BR 1080p DTS 7-channel surround on my 55" plasma either. Why wait when you can enjoy almost as good right now ?

Posted in: Chinese navy chopper approaches Japanese destroyer near Okinawa See in context

Either it was an accident or it wasn't. Either way can be played one side against the other. At any rate, either way implies both countries have a savvy military, a least likely scenario. The only conclusion to be drawn from this is that one dog veered too close to another dog's territory intentionally or otherwise.

Posted in: The downside of twittering as Japan goes at it 24 hours a day See in context

Twittering is just mental masturbation writ large. Every man a king, every thought of monumental importance, the Emperor's new clothes. Yet, the sheer base nature of its exposition throws a monstrous shadow over us all.

Posted in: Shooting AV stars See in context

In Japan porn is just a product, there's no overweening morality to weigh it down: people want it, people get it, the same thing with eating whales or dolphins. The Japanese are not burdened down by religious morality: a spade is a spade, porn is porn. It's only Westerners who "wail" over this.

Posted in: 'Cove' director defiant on Yokota base ban, harassment See in context

To the benefit of the US military "Cove" is not being shown because they would lose money showing a limited appeal movie, it's a matter of dollars and sense. To the denigration of the Japanese, they really don't give a hoot about slaughtering anything, a meal is a meal. Westerners can lead a horse to water, but it isn't just the sight of cruelly slaughtered dolphins which causes it hesitation to drink, it's pure unadulterated island mentality vs. the rest of the world. Anyone who's been here for more than 5 minutes must recognize the US vs THEM mentality here.
