So they agreed to still be capable of destroying each other and taking the world along with them, except they found out that it can be achieved by a mututal cost cutting measure?

Same here, my J wife sheds more tears than most white man. And not just becuase they are cute. They have a life just like our own, they don't deserve to be chopped up in a small cove.

Is it OK to eat dolpins if they are farmed or belong to a sub-species that's not too affectionate of us humans or dumb? Why am I like the only one on this thread who's like endeavouring to not be a hypocrit? Why do I get the feeling that the documentary crew cares more about their career than dolphins?

Boy: "AMX 403, contact departure adios"

Air Mexico 404: "Contact departure Air Mexico 403, adios!"

He was clear and articulate, a refreshing change from the Burnt out Brooklyn accented tin pushers, don't you think?

How did that American comedian put it, "Krispy Kreme donuts, it's so good you will suck a.."

If you notice someone knocking on the window of the KKD Funabashi Lalaport Store at 2am in the morning, don't worry it's just me being a desperate donut whore.

Alexander Neumeister is a legend of train designs, just look at the other works he did like for the German ICE 3 bullet trains. He makes sex run on rails.

Posted in: Activists claim Japanese whalers were hurt by their own pepper spray See in context

If Japan had a backbone, they would do 2 things:

Withdraw from the IWC Send reprisal raids against the SS fleet with chemicals just as obnoxious if not more.

But we are talking about Japan, a country that pays terrorist ransoms when their citizens get kidnapped, and the government carpet bags to a bunch of goons that can't tell wind direction.

Posted in: The dumbing down of Japanese students See in context

Most students - most people - are not brilliant. Roughly half the population are below average. A system that caters only for the brilliant is not going to have much success.

To enable everyone to get the best out of themselves, time management needs to allow a certain amount of free time on a frequent and regular basis - time to let the brain cells ruminate on what's happened to them in the past 24 hours. Otherwise you get brains crammed full of 'knowledge' in the heads of people who have no idea what it all means, what its significance is, or what they ought to do with it. If that means cutting into bukatsu time a bit, then bukatsu time needs to be cut into.

I get it, Japan ought to have rigid socio-economic class distinctions like Anglo-America

less emphasis on club activities in JHS might help free up more time for study.

Non-sense, a brilliant student can do both sports and study by careful time management by squeezing every minute they have.

Yes, Japan is safe, perhaps just as safe as any other country until something happens to YOU.

Well the incidents that you mentioned all happened in Northern Osaka, go figures, you don't hear about every time a brother gets a cap up his arse in East St. Louis.

Contrast that to Midori-ward Chiba, especially around Osmigaoka is one of the finest Chiba Newtown settlements that developed during the property bubble.

Posted in: Namie Amuro to take on Gundam in music video See in context

Most of the audience that watched the original Gundam on TV would be in their 40s and 50s by now. It's doubtful that they are interest in Namie Amuro or any other 'Komuro family' member that debuted in the 90s.

In contrast, the generation do watch her music videos would no be much aware of the original Gundam, albeit Otakus who have a wide knowledge of anime behind their times. The Gundam media they would best know about would be Seed and 00 that incorporate male protagonists who are emasculated and broody if not outright depressed.

A 24 hour line operation may not be feasible due to maintenance and diagnostic issues but Sydneysiders seems to have alleviated this problem by offering overnight buses that travel along the same metro station routes

Something about Mariah and Japan doesn't fit well in my mind. I think it's got to do with the canned coffee commercial she did with FOR THE LOVE OF GAWWD Sanma about 10 years ago, bloody awful. I guess time can't erase a feeling this strong.

The initiative is being supported by Tourism New Zealand, Auckland Airport

Looks like Christchurch won't have any direct charters afterall. That's ironic, because Auckland is a broke-arse Sydney that is the last place a tourist would find the unique New Zealand experience they are looking for.

Posted in: Tokyo police launch weeklong anti-groping campaign on trains See in context

It's cruel but it's reasonable that when you ride a packed commuter train headed for Tokyo or Osaka during rush hour you must assume the risk of being groped. The introduction of 'women only trains' was not only an equitable relief but also a resignation by rail companies that there's very little that more that could be done with respect to the fine balance between gains and losses made by their limited resources as a for-profit entity.

However, that is not to say that society is satisfied with that. This anti-groping campaign is effectively demonstrating that society and the public sector is prepared to shoulder what it thinks is the burden of the costs that can help to tackle the groping issue even further. I however doubt that this new method as described in the article will be effective.

History texts that the Missouri actually started the war by shelling innocent Japanese in some beach resort town in Okinawa or something to that effect...

What in the hell is wrong with you people? Can't you see that the Japanese are actually the Victims of WW2...?

I doubt the average Okinawan in the early 20th century had much political voice in Japanese politics that include foreign policy and war, just like Japanese women and low income earning men on the home islands who were disenfranchised and many of whom died in the war like any other 'nameless loathable Jap-anese bastard' in the eyes of the common American. So you are correct in stating that many Japanse were victims, a fact that is inconceivable to many allied citizens of both old and newer generations.

However, such perception has no place in this commemoration ceremony. We can readily remind ourselves that Japan as a whole deservedly suffered the pains of war for their deeds. There is no distinction of innocent Japanese from the evil ones. That distinction Americans readily make for their own bad applies to tell from the good will not be granted to the enemy.

The war was fought by the Americans to save the integrity of the the Chinese from the incursion of the Japanese. These veterans sacrifice would be for little or nothing if the US and China should go at each other's throats.

Posted in: Star of Taiji dolphin-hunt film wants to win over Japan See in context

There must be a demarcation, a degree of intelligence of animals to draw a line between an animal that can or cannot be killed for sport, food or other human socio-economic benefit. The case for anti-dolphin killers is that dolphins are smart and lovable to humans compared to other animals, this is certainly true. However, to recognise that dolphins require protection would open the floodgates to other animal activists who make their case for preserving other various species, orders and other sorts (e.. avians, crustaceans, reptiles) the list goes on. People like Ric O'Barry are driven to protect their creatures of interest out of affection, but that reason does not go far enough.

Posted in: Japanese-American graduate recalls wartime ordeal See in context

Furthermore I recall that the compensation by the federal government of US$20,000 per internee and apology is absurd! it should be the other way round. It is the Nikkei who should be paying the US government for the relocation and protection costs it bore with interest with gratitude! Any implication that the US was unjust in putting these people under protective custody is gross historical revisionism at its worst.

Posted in: Japanese-American graduate recalls wartime ordeal See in context

I agree with Berserker, it was enough that some Japanese-Americans had mixed loyalties that warrants the internment of all Nikkei. We must always remember that if the Euro-American institutions that make America great should be in peril, then the liquidation of Asiatic ethnic interests in the US is a small price to pay for the continuation of mainstream US society.
