Posted in: Dip into noodles behind the fashionable facades of Ginza See in context

afanofjapan - in the last paragraph of the article:

Ginza Ishii is one of two Ishii shops (the other is in Gotanda) and they are both the progeny of Tsujita, in Kanda — the originator of the “sudachi”­flavored “tsukemen” and the egg-­rich noodle recipe.

I think it'd be better to ask kids whether they'd prefer to be raised by two men or two women.

Then what would they need parents for? If it were up to kids, it would be no parents!

is it really that important? There are plenty of well adjusted people from dysfunctional households, just as how there are plenty of crazy freaks from what you would refer to as "normal" households.

Then he should have phrased it differently, or do you simply enjoy being contrary? Call it for what it is, the relatives wanted their ancestors out - is it really that hard?

Strangerland, no, it isn't true -the relatives attach meaning to the soul, whether the soul itself wants out - how the hell would anyone know?

And MANY of the non-Japanese souls imprisoned in yasukuni want OUT, but the idiots who run the place wont let them be free of their prisons, how nice is that!

Controversies regarding Yasukuni aside, even you must realize that this is grasping at straws, wouldn't you think?

I dont think using "J-drama and manga fans" as a source even remotely makes this a "domestic case" Just using it as another excuse to harp on Japan is just petty IMO.

Taiwan is not, and never should be part of China - if China's stance towards Taiwan is what you call "steady and peaceful" I will take a steaming plate of no thank you.

That is just splitting hairs no?

If your cat "pack member" attacked someones child - you as the owner of the cat would have to take responsibility. Regardless of what the cat thinks of its relationship with you.

If we want to go that route and split hairs, it would be dogs that are called "packs" if I am not mistaken.

dbsaiya, I know that, what's with the attitude? I mentioned that because if you had read what I was responding to the post directly above mine :

When well fed, they generally do not hunt. So the action of these keepers are actually helping the environment.

I am well aware of that Amidalism, but cage production is still the norm, is it not? Cage free eggs are available here too, at a premium.

If there wasn't such a big market for it Nihon Ryu, maybe there wouldn't be so many. It certainly does reflect poorly on certain people - and I am not talking about the sex workers. Nice try!

I doubt egg practices are better anywhere else warispeace.

Healthy chickens are made into all sorts of food all the time- pet, human or otherwise. I don't quite get what your argument is here.

Smallpox has been wiped out, I'm not sure why you would need to worry about that now, Tokiyo.

Here is the point I am trying to make: I don't worry about it precisely because it was through vaccinations that wiped it out. I am just telling you that we have a lot to be thankful for in terms of vaccinations.

There is a reason smallpox has been wiped out from most industrialized nations. If that isn't something to be thankful about then please...risk your children away from society.
