Posted in: Boeing announces record Chinese order worth $38 bil See in context

I guess in three years time China will be selling a cloned version 737 for less than half the price. That's the nature of business I guess.

The response of the school authorities is always laughable. They pretend to care, but in reality they actually don't.

My guess is that he'd much prefer to serve his sentence here rather than in the US. American prison are mostly notorious. The gangs, the rapes, the murders

Posted in: Japan pledges $14 bil in aid to Africa over 5 years See in context

It's not aid, it's a punt, hoping to create investment opportunities. Japan hope to get huge, huge paybacks in terms of very cheap access to valuable resources and lucrative construction contracts that can last decades. However, they are playing catch-up with the Chinese, and I think they have left it rather late. There's no true aid-giving here, just greasing the palms of greedy governors. Japan have very deep pockets, but they are also a country with no natural resources of their own. Hence it is vital that they create new trading partners. They need Africa far more than Africa needs them.

Posted in: Two Russian women arrested for not paying taxi fare, assaulting driver See in context

Hiroo to Roppongi "1,500yen" is way too excessive.... For some reason, taxi drivers here don't seem to have a clue how to get around. Firstly, they will often ask the passenger for directions to get to the destination. If that fails, they will try to fumble with the car-navigation system. The Russian women must have felt that he was trying to rip them off. Let's hear both sides of the story before judging.

Posted in: Why Japanese girls are a better catch than Japanese men See in context

" A catch !!. I can think of nothing worse than being married to one of those talent-less Japanese female airheads that you see on tv.. She'd want to be pampered all day, and she'd spend your hard earned money on designer bags and other fashion paraphernalia. In return you'd get a wife with the mental age of a 6 year old. No thanks.

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

I watched her reports from Iraw and Afghaistan. The poor woman sounded like a terrified goose when the shooting started. I remember thinking "What the heck are you doing there Honey. This is not for you". Anyway I salute her bravery.

Posted in: New memoir on racism by New Yorker living in Japan reaches #1 on Amazon See in context

I don't think there is too much racism towards blcak people here in Japan. But there IS a lot of ignorance. They simply believe what they see on the silly tv over here, and they then behave accordingly (ie. with irrational fear).

Posted in: 61% of single men aged 18-34 have no girlfriend; 49% of women unattached: survey See in context

As a general rule, most Japanese have an extremely low sex drive. Among of the lowest in the world. It plummets even further after marriage and children. However, I think it's just genetic. That's just how they are made. Over-working is not a reason. It's an excuse. Once your Japanese partner starts to say that, you can bet that your sex-life is pretty much over. Truth is, after an exhausting week, there can be nothing more relaxing and pleasurable than making out with your partner. It melts all the stress away. To use over-work as an excuse, is just not quite right.

There are many seriously disturbed people walking the streets of Japan at any given time. Govt Policy seems to be 'Care in the Community' rather than facing the huge costs of putting them in an institution.

Don't these women have male relatives who can take a hammer to these creeps. You mostly only see the relatives on TV bawling and saying how lovely their sister/daughter was.

The cops here only ever start to take it seriously after the woman ends up horribly murdered. You read about these cases time and time again.

Damn! If you pull a knife on a cop in Oz you are shot dead - End of story! Gotta love the 'passive' police force in Japan. "Take one for the team!"

OZ have got it right. This lunatic came to murder the young woman. He should be shot. He'll be back. You can count on it.

Japan imports almost all of its raw materials. So the high value of the yen is great news to some over here.

These crazy, crazy people. They really need to get out into this wide world more. They'll soon realize that there are many ways of dealing with stressful circumstances. I mean... a 19 year old girl, a University student. Should be the best days of their lives....Come on. What the heck is going on there ? If anything, they should be getting together to talk each other OUT of committing suicide..
