Posted in: What do you think of the idea of a grand coalition between the ruling DPJ and opposition parties? See in context

Good luck with that! With all the fighting inside the party, I doubt they can agree with other parties. At least as long as Ozawa-yaro is there.

I guess they didn't have a choice to go with the quad core, since Intel stopped manufacturing them a long time ago.

Posted in: iPad2 arrives See in context

I played with one last weekend. It's faster and thinner than the first one, but the camera is pure garbage. The quality is lower than a 10 year old phone. All the pictures look compressed and full of artifacts. Apple should have spent 50円 more to put a decent one. But that's for the iPad 3.

Posted in: The government is considering the introduction of a new tax to finance the huge costs of reconstruction in the Tohoku region following last month's earthquake and tsunami. What are your thoughts on su See in context

It was inevitable. My bet is they wanted to increase tax, but a reconstruction tax is more voters' friendly than raising consumption tax.

Too bad they can't tax kick backs.

Yup this is the wrong one. The bigger one is all white and has a lot more wheels. It was the picture of the day a few days ago: JT /category/picture-of-the-day/view/heavy-help

So the problem is not that they don't have hot water or baths. It's old people don't like the bath's shape... Just go for sponge bath then.

IMHO, the markup is too big for active glasses for the big TV manufacturers to make them universal.

Posted in: Shoppers' appetite for spending is being restrained by a feeling that it is inappropriate when nearly 28,000 are dead or missing and more than 180,000 survivors huddle in shelters. What effect do you See in context

If everybody's like this, the economy will tank.

How to make people spend? Plenty of electricity would be a start to power restaurants, shops and pachinko parlors. When you don't have the basics, you're not thinking of buying a new car, go to a spa or buy unnecessary stuff.

They look like fools. This is not the time for cosplay! Might as well dress up as Ultraman, Gundam or Sailormoon to save the day!

They even wear them at diet. It doesn't look serious. If they were at the power plant or somewhere in Tohoku, then it would be ok; in Tokyo, strange.

Nice! When I think "clown" and "Fukushima" I always think of TEPCO's boss, but this is much better. Stay healthy and happy little ones!

Posted in: TEPCO apologizes again and again See in context

What!?! No seppuku?

I can give them that they improved their briefings' looks by removing the guys writing stuff on white board and scotchtaping papers to it. It looked disorganized and incompetent. The rest looks like a giant mess and IMHO TEPCO's suits are spending as much energy covering stuff up to save themselves and limit the fees/lawsuits then to solve the plants problems.

Posted in: In view of the continuing nuclear crisis and ongoing aftershocks since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, are you planning to leave Tokyo or stay? See in context


To prevent people from voting something else, even tho they don't live in Tokyo. Survey usually have an option that says "don't apply", "don't know" or "don't want to answer".

How many people who left/are leaving smokes?

Afraid of a little bit more radiation that according to scientists won't affect your health vs smoking which will kill you or at least reduce your life expectancy by 15 years. It also contains radioactive carcinogens (lead-210 and polonium-210). (^_-)

It's nice and all, but every foundation have their expenses. Might as well directly give to Red Cross, than a middle man, who will take a cut.

Not calling, having other plans when invited somewhere.

Posted in: What do you think about the wave of anti-government protests in countries like Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Bahrain, Libya and Iran? Should countries like China and North Korea feel uneasy about it? See in context

No. China has better censorship than them, so I guess most of their citizen don't even know what happened.

As for North Korea, people are so brainwashed they don't have to worry about the population. Kim III might suffer from an "accident" at the hands of the army, when Kim II dies tho.

My guess is the North is going to attack on July 27; The day StarCraft 2 is released. :P

Then they case relocate the Futenma base in NK.

Posted in: Takahashi's bond with wife 24 years younger is stronger than ever See in context

Takahashi first met Mifune when she was 13 years old and married her on her 16th birthday.

Yikes!!! Doesn't that equals: "Don't pass go, go straight to jail"?

I'm glad their happy, but I fear for the children.

Posted in: Are there any sports that you think should be dropped from the Winter Olympics for whatever reason? See in context

I'd say drop everything that is not a sport people do (like bobsled or ski jumping). Don't really see the point of skeleton or luge, when the time difference between the 1st and last is 0.025 sec. Women hockey. All the team to goes against Canada and US, lose with scores like 15-0. Even the goalie can get an hat-trick. Boring.

I like curling. I played 2 or 3 times. It's tougher than it looks, specially when you're not good... or not sober.

Posted in: Doggy bags slowly infiltrate Japanese dining scene See in context

ditto. It must be for some women, who usually eat a bentou box so tiny, you can barely fit a bite size tamagoyaki and cherry tomato in it.

It's great to know it's beginning to be socially acceptable to bring back home, some left over nattou curry, during the evening commute. (^_^;)
