Did they feel paniced, frightened or pain-stricken I wonder

When an instantaneous method of death is involved, I'm not sure they have any idea what is going on until it's too late to be honest...

Posted in: The great Tokyo Michelin sham See in context

Aww diddums, did Japan take the French bookie wookie and make them cry?

Seriously though, who the hell cares (except the French)? The author of this article is clearly missing the point by focusing on how easy/difficult food is to prepare - THAT IS NOT THE POINT OF FOOD! If it tastes good, it deserves recognition. As far as I (and, I would hope, any other non-snob) am concerned, if food tastes good and is prepared in a hygienic environment, then I am happy to eat it!

I don't understand the fuss to be honest... Qatar are still saying it CAN be done in the summer with the planned event used in their bid. Do FIFA doubt it that much???

Posted in: Stone thrown at moving Seibu Shinjuku line train; two passengers hurt See in context

the stone weighed a kilogram?? im confused....did it weigh a stone or a kg??

Are you serious?... there is NOTHING to suggest the unit of weight is anything other than around 1kg. A stone is just a small rock. Ok, in British English it's also about 6kgs when talking about weight, but anyone who can throw that well enough would need to be brought onto the olympic shot-put team!

I pity Britain for being so willing to allow radicals to take a foothold in their country

Generally those who incite radicalism are deported from the UK, it's not a case of them being allowed to take a foothold...

more islamist "adjustment" of the school curriculum happens

Any evidence to back that up?

Posted in: Happy New Year See in context

Wow, so many people here rushing to celebrate the Western New Year.

You could argue that so many western people rush to celebrate the new year of a country they have never visited (well, the Papal State anyway!) so there isn't really any difference between an American and a Japanese person doing this!

Posted in: Parents start to see TV, Internet the same See in context

Zenny - I think you have found a great compromise to keep everyone happy. I also definately agree that internety usage (often like watching tv) is a way for me personally to kill time when bored so I can also unferstand your final statement haha!

I definately think parents need to work harder to find a good balance rather than simply restricting or not caring. I think a lot of "problems" stem from parents themselves allowing reclusive/unsociable trends from developing and once anything like that begins, it's always much harder to change your ways as it will feel natural to spend all night in front of a computer.

Posted in: DJs' darkest hour: Indestructible eventually meant irrelevant for Technics turntable See in context

"The Technics SL-1200 turntable is to dance music what the Fender Stratocaster is to rock". That is putting them both in the musical instrument category

I think that's debatable depending on how you decide to take the comment... I honestly feel the same way that fadamor does. The phrase is not used to directly compare them, but to show their importance within their own 'product range'.

I like the way that he was so dedicated that he didn't even try for a suicide bombing. What a loser

The article states he had other attack plans that were going to follow...

I wonder if these are the same people who protest and want the US bases out of Japan

Probably... "Be careful what you wish for" is something people need to think more about

Posted in: Snack foods a threat to nation's youth See in context

Isn't 6,600 yen a year a tiny amount??? Surely there isn't a whole lot being eaten if that figure is correct... or have I missed something?

Posted in: Kicking zombie butt See in context

tokyochris: Thanks for letting me know. Given the cost of seeing a 3-D movie here (I usually catch three in SKorea for the price of one in Japan) I think I'll wait for it to come out on video.

The action wasn't bad and the 3d was very good (they used proper cameras, not the tacked-on digital style that Clash Of The Titans went for). The problem is that there was too much jumping around in terms of storyline - it felt as though about 4 movies had been compressed into one and a lot of chances were missed. The ending was also REALLY stupid (though I won't spoil that moment of stupidity/disbelief haha)

It's an awful movie... I can't believe I actually paid to see it :-(

Posted in: Erika Sawajiri: Inside the head of Japan's outspoken star See in context

she has a nice butt but so do 10 million other Japanese girls

I have to disagree with this comment...

As for Erika, she probably has no interest in changing anything - just wants to cause more controversy because she is an attention seeker that people have stopped talking about recently

The problem is, this might help North Korea's position - by constantly 'showing favour' towards America by releasing these idiots, it may give them leverage when negotiating

I'm heading back to England for a holiday and to a friends wedding next summer. I personally hope the yen remains high for at least another year ;-)

Yuk, yuk! So, this mishap happened at 4:30pm yesterday and the fools responsible had already been retrained by 10am the following day? Any wonder things like this happen?

How long should it take to train someone about how to check the time?

Darkknightnine is correct - this is definately NOT an hdr image...the 'ghosting' is simply the result of a slow shutter speed

There isn't enough details in blacks or highlights to be an HDR image

These night scenes keep getting better

If it's from the TMG, I'm guessing a pro was probably hired to take it

On a slightly related note, the iOS4 update bricked my 3g... the phone restarted everytime I tried to make/answer a phone call!

Had to restore the older software to be able to use the damn thing again >_<
