Strangerland does it matter? the boy is lucky he is alive. when was the last time you use hammer and knife towards to your children? Never! Right? If she is mental... lock her up...if she is not even worse...lock her up...

Do you think it's a problem unique to Japan? Perhaps you should inform yourself more and you will see that the reality is different.

Well, it depends...in my country is the legal principle that one is considered innocent unless proven guilty and the burden of proof is on the one who declares, not on one who denies...

that means more criminals OUT than IN...:-)

Warning to all foreigners: Pretending not to speak Japanese does not fool these NHK fee collectors anymore. They will come back the next day with a pamphlet in your language asking you to sign a contract.

True...BUT only fool will sign contract fully written in Japanese. How many foreigners can read 100% of kanji written in that contract? Pamphlet is in my language (second language) but the contract is in Japanese and I never sign papers I don't know 100% what that is for (even in this case I know exactly what's going on, but still)...so do you want my sign? then bring contract in English...in this particular case "koko wa nihon" doesn't work with me...not fan of brainwashing...

Sorry, I do not trust the government protect my privacy! They created the "my number" scheme under the guise of tax collection, but it is becoming more and more invasive and our privacy is nearly gone!

I personally have no problem with that...

Posted in: Arrest of Ghosn raises speculation over coup by Nissan See in context

Far from the sun shines. Nissan seems suffering from unfair treatment by French people. Renault is sending its engineers to Nissan and telling what to do to Japanese engineers. They wouldn't listene to Nissan. Many Japanese engineers left the company.

So what???

That's what companies do...company is not working well? Then, we sent our professionals to make it work...don't like changes? well, you have just two choices: stay and change yourself or leave...those Japanese who left... well, they made their choice...nothing more nothing less...:-)
