This guy is a complete nincompoop. Look at him - real tough guy. He has no real credentials and I had to chuckle upon reading this article, the Germans sum it up succinctly: Schadenfreude.

Posted in: Will the U.S. Marines charge ashore at Kansai airport? See in context

The most important point is that rotary aircraft must be close to the troops they will transport and train with. Given this basic point, the helicopter units from Futenma must be in Okinawa and can not be relocated to Iwakuni, Osaka or Guam. All these wonderful suggestions from mayors and governors are pretty retarded considering the geography involved.

Posted in: Why do Asian pop stars have a hard time succeeding in the U.S. market? See in context

Most do really suck and it certainly helps if you sing in fluent English for starters. The few good ones just haven't been lucky, had the right agents or whatever combination of timing, fundage and connections it takes to make it all click. Plenty of non-white, non-American bands and singers make it moderately big in the US all the time. Whahh, racism...whahh, FAIL.

Waterboarding shouldn't be included, anyone who has been through escape and evasion training has experienced it.

Posted in: United Airlines to charge obese passengers double on full flights See in context

Pay up or take the bus or train. I completely agree, they should charge according to weight and volume. The "why" of a person's size is irrelevant to an airline but is a seperate debate completely for health officials and the medical community. Airlines need to safely (and profitably) transport people and part of doing it in airplane is factoring in the load (passengers and cargo), weather conditions, route, etc, those are immutable facts.

The hero is the captain of the ship. The SEALs aren't heroes, just did thier job properly, as well-trained troops do, day in and day out. I'm sure they'd be the first to disclaim hero status.

Posted in: U.S. Embassy warns Americans to avoid Roppongi bars due to drink-spiking increase See in context

As always, Caveat Emptor. Roppongi is not some distortion in the time/space continuum. Was there last night actually for a quick drink and been going for 14 yrs without a problem - just excercise common sense. Six Trees is not my favorite place at all (prefer Ebisu) but sometimes just an easy choice. Plenty of interesting joints and quite a few craptacular places. The touts can spot a stooge a mile away.

Since she has zero connection with the actual TV show, don't let it put you off. It is actually quite well done, if you don't mind a bit of blood.

Posted in: American Airlines adds customer-recognition technology See in context

Nothing peculiar about this, just saves time and money, activities most businesses engage in. Perhaps some are confused, it doesn't recognize you by your voice (it recognizes your phone number - not amazing), it directs your call by recognizing the meaning of the words. Similar technology has been around for years, i.e. Speechworks/Nuance. Ever speak to a carnavi?

Posted in: Temp workers bear brunt of recession in Japan See in context

The profit margin you're describing is pretty standard and even below average worker dispatch companies. Though by your own math a million dollars in sales is low. Gross revenue is not an indication of profit. Don't forget they have to pay health insurance, pension, etc, not to mention the costs of sourcing and dispatching people. Plus gaijin need visas and at least 10% will cut out before they finish their contracts. May not be the cash cow you think it is.

Hmm, would they do the same if the comments were in spray paint, on a wall near the guy's house?

Posted in: Ritz-Carlton Tokyo hosts theme parties See in context

Did I "slam" you? My point (which you missed) is that if you would even consider having a party for your crumb snatcher at a 5-star hotel chain like the "Ritz", you have serious liquidity and a different idea of "value-for-money" than most folks here on JT. I have kids and I've stayed at a few of the Ritz properties over the years but it would never cross my mind to arrange a birthday party for them at a hotel, let alone the Ritz.

Posted in: Yoko Ono sounds off See in context

Saw her on a local show recently spouting her weirdness, her Japanese is native/fluent as ever. Someone with that much cash would never have to spend a lot of time isolated from her mother-tongue. And of course, there are many thousands of Japanese expats in the Big Apple. My favorite thing is she acts like Japan is the original peaceful utopian nation and seems to be clueless about the actual size of the military apparatus here and blind to the fact that Japanese industry makes their own tanks, rifles, ships, missiles and other munitions.
