Women have been their own worst enemy for ever. Probably back to when the first cavewoman stole another's caveman because he was strong and brave. Woman will stab their bestfriend/sister/mother in the back to get what they. Granted not every woman, but it happens to women more than men.
I know I'm a woman and I've been paying attention. How many times have you started a fight with your man because you were mad at something else? How many times have you asked your man a question knowing there is no answer and you're going to be pissed no matter what. How many times have you said "I love you" to a man and got pissed because he didn't lie and say it back to you and then you got mad at him for being honest?
Yeppers...we're our own worst enemies.

Kimuzukashiii and others, you are missing the point of the documentary. It's not about the tsunami and quake, it's about one young woman living her dream, even though it ended sadly, she lived it.
As I was reading this article I thought to myself, how many people are going to bitch about it being about an American, how many aren't going to see what this man is trying to tell with this story. Those who see it as "just another American way to get attention" are just negative people to begin with.
When stories were done about the foreigners who died in 911 by their own countries I don't recall negative remarks. But everytime an American does or says something it's often taken in the negative. That's sad. There are quite a few beautiful Americans too, they are not all "Ugly Americans".

It just seems to me that it's just another excuse for unhappy people to think that "this" is going to make me happy. So many adults who are unhappy with their lives seem to think that if they find a parent who put them up for adoption or now we're talking "sperm & egg donors" that it will automatically make their life "make sense".
Well it doesn't, it makes it more harrowing to find a parent who really doesn't want you in their life to begin with. Okay sometimes a very small amount want to meet the children they gave up, but not sperm or egg donors. They donated and forgot all about it probably. I read a book in the 90's (can't remember the name) written by a woman who searched for her biological parents and found help from a US television show, and when she found them the drama and bullshit (that wasn't shown on tv) was horrible for her. She ended up wishing she had never tried to find that lost family that turned out to be a huge problem in the end for her.
Humans have to find out what makes you happy by themselves, finding the "miracle" family isn't going to do it. And people who tell themselves "I won't feel complete until I know" are kidding themselves.

It doesn't have anything to do with them being US Military men, I'm sorry, you can't use that as an excuse, because rape has been going on in Japan and every other country since the dawn of time. No one one reading this can say that Japanese men don't rape. Don't blame the US, we don't hold the patent on idiots.
The problem is the sentences, hell in some of the Providences if the man apologizes to the girls family, pays them a large fine he can go home the same day of the trial; never serving one day in prison. Makes no sense.
The punishment must fit the crime.

It's not to hard to figure out, the Japanese music fan base is all about the good looking, girls and guys and even the the song is cute and it's laughing at itself, Psy is not the most handsome guy in the world, and that's what' the Japanese fan base (girls/women) are interested in. Hot sexy men and beautiful fashionable women.
