Who is the source close to the matter?

Is it Jim Acosta? Don Lemon? Racheal Maddow? The New York Times? The Washington Post? Buzzfeed? AOC? Manbearpig?

Who ever said UK was a democracy!!!???

Welcome to reality millennials! The Crown is and always has been the boss! That goes for Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Jamaica, and more. No time to explain it to you, go figure it out yourselves. hint, you will not get your answers on facebook or twitter.

Males are interested in things, i.e. almost all engineers are men.

Females are interested in people, i.e. the vast majority of nurses are women.

Transgenders .... perhaps they thrive in psychology?

Naturally occurring fluoride in water is not the same as artificially induced supplies.

Cheers to you JT! You can now almost see the curve!

Congratulations! Did you really just figure this out!? The Nazis knew this when they were the first ones to experiment with water fluoridation on the Jews. Lower bone density and IQs were observed. This is SUPER old news.

Posted in: 2 elderly people die after being hit from behind by car; driver arrested See in context

This 42 year old should said that his car malfunctioned. Perhaps that would have got him off the hook like that 88 year old criminal who killed a mother and infant in Tokyo!?

Moderator: Readers, no more references to the Ikebukuro incident please.

Posted in: S Korean imports of Japanese beer nearly halve in July See in context

I can only imagine the ditch water used to make Korean beer. It is pretty amazing that the second highest IQ people in the world tied with Japan, is duped so easily by government propaganda. I guess 105 is not so impressive after all.

This is a  western problem. Left liberals are obsessed with race. It is bad manners to talk about ones appearance. Time to grow up.

You are not supporting women. You are supporting the ideology that all women are victims. If you are a woman, do not like heels, do not take the job. Plenty of jobs in factories, labs, hospitals, etc., that do not require heels.

great personality, competence, experience, glowing recommendations and education usually go hand in hand with effort in over all life, including appearance. Anymore genius revelations?

Since 1981,

SO is my daughter. But there is a time and place. Can you not figure that out? This article is saying ALL WOMEN are victims! I think that is total NONSENSE! Women are not helplessly trapped into some etherical societal monster. Listen, you do not like the job that requires heels, need not apply! That simple! Problem fixed! There is more than enough jobs to go around in Japan!

What a wonderful era to live in! The economic and material wealth is so great that people actually reject looking good!

A woman that looks more attractive does better in life. Same with men. Which is why most men shave.

What is next? No make up? I would hire the woman who puts effort into her appearance over those who do not. Reminds me of that classic rock song "American Woman".

I disagree with Disillusioned. I think what you are talking about is sensationalism based on one story. The worst countries in the world for drunk driving, provided by Forbes Magazine, show that UK, US, Australia and Canada all rank in the top six positions. Japan is nowhere to be found! What you are proposing is dynamite to kill a mosquito. Overall, Japan is a very safe place to drive, which I do everyday in the prefecture with the highest rate of accidents in the country.
