How about using your influence to improve mental health services in your own country, for starters.

Oh, sorry for dreaming.

Thats a bit rich, Ebisen. There is close to nothing that I could have done. Maybe you know more about oldman than I do.

Agreed to all of the above re: wastefulness in Japanese society, but it's far from alone. And to be honest, 2.7 tonne doesn't seem such a huge amount considering this is nationwide, presumably, over a season. I'm sure other food processors and retailers would throw away more, and for the whole year.

Indeed Atari. if you have the confidence, and the ability to stay awake, a front seat on these buses could be a lifesaver for everyone on board.

You're right Goodluck, it sure seems to have changed this woman's life, yet look at the positives changes that she tries to pry out her horrendous experience. Good luck to her, and may she find happiness in her life.

Nice observation, SumoBob!

But maybe there's a business opportunity for a fella to do various half hour shadow performances and sell them to the needy!

Yep, if you didn't have a few air scrubbers/cleaners when your home got covered in ash, you'd no doubt wish you had.

Sorry, Peter, but that speed is inappropriate for Japanese expressways. Keep it for the track.

Posted in: 86% of go-kart accidents in Tokyo involve foreigners: NPA See in context

The stats are hollow. 50 accidents out of how many contracts? I'm disappointed by all of the saloon chair critics of these karts too. Have none of you taken a tour? If you love driving (and have a sense of skill), I urge you to get on an afternoon tour before they are banned, or summer makes it unbearable to be in the costume, whichever comes first. Oh, and snavel yourself the rear-most kart ;-)

Posted in: Tourist driving go-kart arrested over hit-and-run See in context

I've been on one of these tours. They are an absolute hoot! But yes, there is a high element of danger. I certainly wouldn't go on a night tour as they are hard to see for sure. The Singaporian ladies on my tour confessed to having never driven a vehicle since obtaining their licenses back home. Boy, was that evident.

But if it's anything like my wife and I, regardless of lack of license, inebriation, or anything else you'd like to name, my driving will always be way safer to all than hers. She'll be the first to agree.

Posted in: Japan's antismoking plan with gaping loophole sparks outcry See in context

I'm out, rather than in Japan for the majority of the time these years, but the incidence of smoke in the face, or even the smell of a cigarette is notably reduced from just a couple of years ago.

This plan is, sadly, typical 忠太半端 (half-arsed) thinking by the old boys who are obliged to let their buddies smoke and sell smokes.
