Posted in: Can embracing Japanese culture make you forget your own? See in context

There's a poem called 'Search For My Mother Tongue' that is basically this article in poem format. I'd recommend you take a look at it, author, it's rather good, and I know from the article you'll relate to it as much as I did.

This is exactly why I became a teacher. I remember back in Uni, my friends would babble on about their visits to Japan like it was some kind of paradise on Earth, and I'd snort at them. Despite its positive points, I view Japan as my great dystopia to be slain. Not by myself obviously, I just do what I can by eating away at my own hours. Changing as a person and growing as a person are one and the same. If there's ever to be any change, it'll start with the people still growing.

tl;dr A sudden and wholly unnecessary Philosophy on life from someone you don't even know.

There is a limitless amount of pornography online (limitless in that you'd die of old age before you'd seen it all with the rate it's added to), of any and every kind.

Why does this even happen?

Posted in: Man arrested for beating 3-year-old daughter after he loses at video game See in context

Aside from being totally disgusted I'm worried this man's problems might run much deeper if he can lose a video game to a three year old. Either that or she's a pro.

...That'd be pretty cool.

Thick, powerful, a pulsing shade of red, will get you from A to B like nothing you've ever felt before... Toyota.

Still, this is absolutely first class advertising.

Hong Kong throws a parade for activists stirring up political tension. Japan holds an anti-Nuclear power protest. Stay classy, HK.

Posted in: Chinese mob ravages Japanese restaurant during protest; later finds out it is Chinese-owned See in context

Though, before calling these rioters idiots, we should all remember the ones pulling the strings. Wow, that even looks cheesy written down. But there was a large police presence throughout these riots, and little was done to stop them. Chinese media is largely state controlled and any politician worth his salt can rile up a crowd by barking words like 'justice.' A riot is usually made up of a group of confused people being pushed by the back row, after all. I become increasingly worried China is dictating more and more, and with less subtlety by the year, how the Chinese public think, the opposite of how Government should function (though, come to think of it, that is pretty much the literal definition of the word).

All in all, I'm secretly hoping some day soon the Chinese ruling body will invite the broken and battered foreign journalists, exiled peoples and missing 'criminals' back to China, ask them to roll the cameras and, on live broadcast, do a set of perfectly synchronised jazz hands while announcing "Surprise! We just made the biggest George Orwell reference ever!"

I'd love if whoever owns that car actually hates Hello Kitty, and just uses it as a conversation piece.

Sorry, I can't read past "Chinese media" without laughing. It's like America's reports on what FOX news said the other day.

Posted in: Chinese mob ravages Japanese restaurant during protest; later finds out it is Chinese-owned See in context

When I laugh at this article, I like to think it's less of me picking sides, and more of me chuckling despairingly at general human idiocy, something that hardly ever fails to provide a level of morbid entertainment.

Posted in: Japanese woman reporter shot dead in Syria's Aleppo See in context

Rest in peace. Can guarantee, as a war reporter, that there probably weren't many other ways she'd have wanted to die. Not that that mitigates how sad these deaths are, but there it is.

As an Englishman I can say for certain that 'British patriotism' is pretty much an oxymoron. Except right now.

Unfortunately, it's amazing how many people decide their vote, all around the world, through information solely from those trash talk ads. I've met a lot of Americans who voted Obama without knowing any of his policy, and a lot of Brits who voted Conservative and Liberal Democrat simply because the Labour party was in power at the start of the recession, again, even though they had little to no idea what the Tories or Lib Dems stood for, apart from, as is the classic way of doing politics here in England, "Something other than what the current party supports."

@smithinjapan I see what you mean. But I think once you've shown such blatant disregard for the spirit of the sport you really lose any right to be considered a potential winner.

This sounds exactly like the apology the Chinese government asked her to make.

Even if guilty, the death penalty is too extreme a punishment. Hell, even if she'd commited the mass murder of 300 people I still wouldn't stoop to the death penalty. Even if she'd killed a family member. Looking up at these comments though, I wonder if I have too much of a Utopian view on the world and its peoples.

Ah, like all hip-hop stars his pilgrimage to his spiritual sanctuary has led to a mighty rebirth, I have absolutely no doubt his music will now be a profound reach into the very darkest and lightest part of the human soul.

Posted in: 8 women badminton players disqualified for 'throwing' matches See in context

Most of the time it's both teams trying to win. If only one had been gunning for a loss it would have been unfair, but since both the teams were doing their best to lose it led to one of the funniest matches I'd ever seen, I even slipped on the Benny Hill theme at one point and sped the match up slightly on my Sky+.

A real pleasurable read, thanks for that. To mash up a quote from the opera adaptation of Voltaire's Candide: "It's such a shame to live in this dishonest world, all I can do is pass it on."
