Posted in: Online reservations begin for Mount Fuji climbers to ease congestion See in context


Because people are climbing in the dark. Poorer visibility and lower temperatures lead to more problems.

Posted in: Japan to start hunting large fin whales See in context

A purely political outdated move that in the end affects the whales only.

Nobody wants to eat that skanky meat anyway. All to keep a few old boys in their amakudari positions.

Posted in: Bank of Japan keeps interest rates unchanged despite pressure over weak yen See in context

They are waiting until after the G7 and G20 meetings.

The strong dollar is affecting other currencies, so I guess they are waiting for pressure from several countries on the US before making any decisions.

...or they are just a useless bunch of eejits.

It's nice to see Honda investing in 3rd World countries such as Canada.

May I add Festering in the Crypt by Cannibal Corpse to your list?

There is no mention of an eclipse whatsoever, but crypt almost rhymes with eclipse.

Posted in: Man arrested after pressing naked butt against water faucet in Tokyo park See in context

Everybody is assuming he has dirty cadbury boulevard.

Like any car owner is about their car, he is obviously very proud of his prison purse and probably keeps it spotless. Thus he can display his immaculate bike rack around town much to the delight of the locals.

It is indeed a sign of a poor economy when Japan's vibrant enema community is forced to use public facilities to obtain rectal entertainment.

On the bright side, I see a possible script for Wim Wender's Perfect Days 2 about a man who achieves happiness through naked bum cheek antics.

As the old saying goes, judge a man's character on the state of his lavatory.

I never visit somebody's house or business without my blue light torch and bacteria testing kit. If I discover stains on the walls or high levels infection I know to take them as a bounder and to vacate the premises immediately.

Nostalgia is like a grammar lesson - you find the present tense and the past perfect, but the future conditional always seems the least promising.

Posted in: 2 more deaths linked to Kobayashi Pharma dietary supplements See in context

Most supplements have no effect other than draining your wallet. That is the true big pharma people should be angry about.

Posted in: Conspiracies linger after Princess of Wales cancer revelation See in context

Some people have way too much free time on their hands.

Instead of sitting at home and knocking one out to conspiracy theories on Facebook, I suggest scuba diving or decorative quilt making.

It was edited by her. She's just not very good at Photoshop. No conspiracy here.

All photos are edited, and have been for years. And they were in the days of film, too

You can spot an amateur because they don't know how to use Lightroom or Photoshop.

Places like Nepal and a few other SE Asian countries usually have local and tourist prices.

To enter the central area of Katmandu they have different fees for tourists from SAARC and non-SAARC countries.

Actual quote from the research 'daily use of cannabis — predominately through smoking — was associated with a 25% increased likelihood of heart attack and a 42% increased likelihood of stroke when compared to non-use of the drug.'

Not actual quote from pothead when asked about the research 'Cool. Like you got some chips or something man?'

Posted in: Ratio of rabies vaccinations for pet dogs in Japan falls to 70% See in context

The post by Gurumick is so unbelievably wrong on every level.

Once a dog presents symptoms, there is no treatment. That also applies to humans.

The reason we don't have rabies is because of vaccination.

I don't think anyone does this lightly, and to think they do only shows your own lack of empathy.

Maybe, just maybe, the mothers are frightened kids who have had no support from family or social services.

There is much more to these stories than dead kid, bad mother, shallow moral high horse comments on internet forums.
