"Dirty liquid, what is that a euphemism for ?"

J-land has a long history.., particularly around the j-landused panty vending machine era...especially with nutcracks slinging suds on women, just dig through j-news archives.

"part-time private high school lecturer in Nagoya"

nice job..teaching representing himself to all those upstanding students.

"According to police, the suspect, Junya Ogata, has denied the charge"

He may be eligible for the j-break ; IF he can use the drunk and doesn't remember T-card.

"The woman, who had been an acquaintance of Ogata, filed a complaint with police."

Well she definitely dropped a dime on him..kudos!

"'m curious to know how he was reselling them. Was he selling them on the internet or just taking them to Hard Off? I thought all bicycles had to be registered. Wouldn't this make theft an impossibility? Or, is the registration only to generate revenue and to give the cops something to do?""


"Police in Toyama City have arrested an unemployed 44-year-old man on suspicion of stealing and then reselling more than 30 expensive bicycles." Looks like they left out no fixed address, and surprisingly it remembers.

I was just down there last week, and I could feel, that the US bases are on the Japanese Radar, they are being watched by practically all, and the keystones are watching and profiling like crazy. I tried to get a taxi and was passed up 6 times! Its not a cool place for night life anymore, and I saw many frowns on many faces. I was glad to get the heck out of there!

"Japan, which accepted just 11 asylum seekers out of 5,000 applications last year, will provide about $810 million in aid in response to refugees fleeing Syria and Iraq, "

Let the truth be told:

The majority are Muslims....more have been going and are going to Malaysia, and Indonesia, where they feel more comfortable, and have access to Islamic culture. Malaysian govt provides them huge benefits, and there are tons of Mosques, and Middle eastern stores and restaurants. AND they can open up and run businesses much easier than in Japan..
