Can't believe it. Oh wait, this is Japan. It is entirely believable. You all realize what this means, don't you? We may be looking at the next Prime Minister... (Rolls eyes)

Posted in: Kirin releases fat-busting cola See in context

Kirin Mets has been around since the 1970's and the name is derived from the word Metropolitans. Of course the NY Mets derived their name from the old New York Metropolitans. If you look at the M in the Kirin logo, it is different from the M in the NY Mets logo. In the long run, who really cares...

Posted in: Murakami keeps Japanese hopes alive at skating worlds See in context

Murakami looked great, but Alena Leonova was really good. It will be hard for Murakami to beat her, and even harder for Mao, if Leonova skates the same in the final.

Posted in: 2 high school girls killed in Yamanashi car crash See in context

Greapper1, a bit of a sexist comment. I would think the boys were in front, and the three girls were in back, and they were not wearing their seatbelts. Whatever the case may be, it's a sad story. If they were at a game center from 11pm the previous night, the driver probably was speeding and dozing off. Agree with Fadamor, "a recipe for disaster more often than not."

Posted in: Whitney Houston drowned in bath after taking cocaine: coroner See in context

Totally agree Riffraff. I can't understand why her daughter would want to get into the business after seeing what i did to her mother, and to some extent her father. I also think the statements by relatives, and even her daughter, are a little cold. If they knew something was wrong, why weren't they helping her more?

Posted in: Ryoko Yonekura to be first Japanese actress on Broadway in 54 years See in context

I heard on one news report that it would only be for a week. Not sure if that's correct or not. I think it's great that Ryoko will be joining Mrs. Livingston on Broadway. It won't be easy, but if she plays her cards right this could open many doors for her. Many more than were available for the wonderful Ms. Umeki in her time.

It was Valentine's Day, so maybe the cds had some love songs on them that he and his ex used to listen to. Curiouser and curiouser...

Greapper1 just say no. Don't watch it. I am looking forward to seeing the show when I get home from work. I like seeing clips of new films that haven't reached these shores yet. I also enjoy Billy Crystal's short comedy bits.

Posted in: 3 mayors snub Hosono, Hirano over radioactive waste storage plan See in context

Ah yes, sounds a little like the mayor of Futaba is a NIMBY who has lost touch with the reality of the situation. As many have stated, the government has already said that it would be impossible to return to some areas. The owners of the land should be paid a fair price for the property and things they have lost. The government might even look into helping to find and/or build new houses for these people. The areas need these temporary storage facilities in order to start rebuilding. The land that the government is planning to use is, I believe, land that is contaminated and therefore uninhabitable. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I was going to ask the same thing LoveNot did, but I want to know if anyone thinks this guy is funny. I'm sure some people find him funny, but I guess I just don't like the way he gets his laughs. Not very inventive or original really.

Posted in: J-League team Shimizu S-Pulse fined over anti-nuclear banner See in context

Well, if you're going to be anal about it, then fine Jubilo as well. They were Jubilo fans after all. I guess the big question is, were the S-Pulse officials notified about the offending banner during the game. If they knew and didn't do anything, I guess a fine of some kind would be necessary. If they weren't told until after the game, or they didn't know about it until after the game, they shouldn't have to pay a fine.

Posted in: 'Toilet God' song makes a star of songstress See in context

At least this song is a nice story about a little girl and her gran, like fishy said. It's not like the majority of mindless songs that are playing all around the globe. So she used the word toilet, so what. It was probably one way for her gran to get her to help out around the house and to teach her to be less selfish. Maybe like parents around the world use Santa to try and get kids to act good, since he does check his list twice. It's a nice song, if you don't like it, fine, don't listen to it. It's a lot better than the top ten Oricon songs of 2010. Or are you AKB 48 fans...

Posted in: Lawyer's widow disputes police version of husband's murder See in context

The explanation I saw on TV was easier to understand than this article. She said that her husband was struggling with the guy who had the gun when the police came in. He apparently wasn't standing there holding the gun. Whatever the case may be, the police made a mess of the whole thing. What should have been a breaking and entering arrest, turned into a murder. I also do not understand why they did not draw their weapons and identify themselves. If there is a drawn weapon, they should have, no matter who was holding it. BTW do police have tasers here?

Posted in: Mark Twain back on best-seller lists with memoir See in context

Dewaashita, that quote is found in French and English in the song Circumstances by Rush. This DOES sound like a great read. Looking forward to it. Can you imagine the number of books Twain could've written if he was looking at the post-war Japanese government? Boggles the mind.

Posted in: FIFA to study scrapping extra time at World Cup See in context

In the old NASL they had a thing called the shootout, which I think is a great way to solve a draw. Like in a penalty shootout, each team chooses the initial five kickers. The ball is placed on the 35 yard line, and when the whistle blows, the offensive player has 5 seconds to dribble in and shoot. The goalkeeper is also allowed to move once the whistle is blown. If there is a rebound off the goalie or the bar, even if there is still time left, the offensive player can not shoot again. Only one shot. I don't know, I enjoyed it at the time.

Posted in: What are some of your favorite examples of the way English is misused in products, advertising and pop culture in Japan? See in context

techall, that made me laugh to, so I Googled it, and was surprised. According to a homepage in Australia, a Bambi is a "Born-Again Middle-aged Biker", so I guess it could be referring to that. Regarding Creap, it is derived from CREAmy Powder. I 100% agree with Disillusioned regarding spelling, especially big companies or government offices. It bugs me so much, I would be willing to check the spelling for free.
