My success in picking up women started immediately after I gave up on it.

Posted in: Police crack down on loophole drugs after spate of traffic accidents See in context

I'm glad the cops are on it. Yes, I was stupid enough to try it and I was very ill for days. However, instead of making it illegal, they should have the same disclosure as food. List of ingredients, etc. What I took was terrible. Yes, I was stupid for taking something that I didn't know. But something should be done to protect people.

Call me an idiot, but he was grabbed which could have impaired him from getting control of the ball. He grabbed him!! The dive needn't have happened. I would have called the penalty anyway. I don't want Brazil to win. I would love to see an underdog win. But the ref had to call it.

The same thing happened to me. I asked a "pilot" where the gate was. He said that he is not a pilot. I said that he sure was. And he said that he was only there doing a shoot. He was kind and his English was very good.Then I noticed everyone crowding around us. I asked someone" who is he?" " Azuma Mikihisa".

Posted in: Hague Treaty on child abductions goes into effect in Japan See in context

This is not a step forward. It's a step back. The Japanese government can now say" we signed The Hague. So lay off". So now, they will just rest. The poster named "disillusioned" is spot on!!

Posted in: 5 reasons foreigners find it hard to become friends with Japanese people See in context

I once told my Japanese friend that a girl was hot!! He went up and told the girl what I said. We western men have certain codes. A western friend would never tell the girl what I said. It's understood!! My Japanese neighbor, who I drank with, reported me to the landlord because my TV was too loud. Why didn't he tell me directly? I can never be close to Japanese guys. The culture is too different.

So do you propose they instead shut up and do nothing?

Strangerland, that is the Japanese way.

Posted in: Aso says he always thought Bitcoin was suspect See in context

After thinking about it, I feel that Aso may be correct in not getting involved. This is not an FSA issue. It's not a Bank of Japan issue. If anything, it's a regular police matter..... If anything.

Good points, Hongo. However, Bitcoin is not regulated. So, is this going to be treated as a criminal matter or civil matter?

Posted in: Japan gives final approval to child abduction treaty See in context

I'm glad that this article includes the last paragraph. If the spouse just says those magic words, The Hague will not apply. Those magic words are " I fear domestic violence". That's it! Case closed!

Posted in: Japan's national health insurance can save your life and savings See in context

I had to pay 2 years in arrears after I decided to use it. I never thought that I would need it, but just suddenly something happened and I need it. Thank god I have it now. In some countries, the health insurance does not include drugs, but here it does include drugs. I'm so glad I have it now as my old insurance does not want to pay because of the preexisting illness clause. I didn't even know I had the condition.
