Posted in: Fast Retailing still hasn't figured out how to grow sustainably in other offshore markets, including the U.S., where it missed the mark with consumers on sizing and expanded so quickly it later had to wear losses from store closures. Ditto in China, where Fast Retailing opened to huge success but couldn't keep up with rapidly changing consumer tastes. See in context
GU is a subsidiary of Fast Retailing: a cheaper version of Uniqlo.

Of the 10,000 years or so of existence they claim, the Japanese common person has only eaten rice for about 100 years. Perhaps one of the reasons they don't learn history is so that they are able to twist the story whatever the way whenever it suits the situation. I pray that archaeologists will find the original hamburger here, in Japan, so we can throw the blame back...

Handball goals are 3x2 meters, but they are usually portable: I doubt they were installed. 160kg seems more of the weight of a soccer goal. Usually people like to swing on these things, not realizing that they can fall over. However I doubt a 7-year old carries enough weight to move it on her own. This seems more like an episode of kids engaging in dangerous play with onlookers afraid to tell them to stop.

"So why do you have Type 2 diabetes, Taro?" "Because I am Japanese."
People all over the world have known that white rice lacks any nutritional value, other than fast-burning carbs, for years. However, the Rice Boards here keep pushing people to eat more and more. In fact, I believe there was a campaign to eat a few more mouthfuls of rice per day, just to increase consumption resulting in enough production for rice self-sufficiency. White rice basically fills out the required calories per meal here, kind of like MSG fills out the flavour in Chinese take-out in North America.

Bravo TEPCO, Bravo! Just when you thought what they've already done couldn't be any more incompetent and brainless... they outdo themselves again. Kind of like Bubka breaking all those world records week by week, but not...
