" . . . there are many reasons your water may taste bad, such as a bad water filter . . . ."
Really? Do companies sell water filters that make the water taste bad?
Do water filters go bad over time, or from overuse or misuse, making the water taste bad?

Is there a reason for waiting so long to ask the public for help?
I would imagine the first hours or days after a crime would be the best time to gather information and evidence.

This sounds great!
Has anyone thought of feeding the fish chocolate? Or green tea?
Maybe mayonnaise or wasabi?
If they could feed mustard and dill to salmon, it would save me some trouble.

With winter coming up, shoveling snow sounds like a great way to get some much-needed exercise and enjoy the brisk, clean air at the same time.

They can try to replace him, but they'll never find anyone who can snort and clear their throat the way he did, especially when another guest is sampling something to eat.
Maybe Tamori-san would like the gig, now that Waratte Iitomo is wrapping up.

Yeah, no. That bone was long gone millions of years ago.

I agree with StormR that the writer needs to get out more:
"a true American hotdog ... slathered with ketchup, onions, and relish ..."
No true American hotdog vendor would use ketchup in place of a nice schmear of mustard.

“Ninety-five percent of Russians are against gay marriage. Gays do not have any support in Russian society.”
--Well, there's your problem. If you can't even math, you can't expect anyone to respect your judgement.
Equating homosexuality with murder and pedophilia is either forgivably sophomoric, or unforgivably evil.
And if you think there is anything evil about Stephen Fry, then you, sir, must be the truly evil one.

What kind of national healthcare do these workers receive?
I mean, how does it differ in price and/or coverage when compared to employees in "seishain" positions?
I wonder what will happen when these people reach retirement age?
I don't think they're making enough to actually save for retirement, are they?
Will the Japanese pension system be able to provide them shelter and sustenance?
Will they have healthcare coverage in retirement?

I'm old enough to remember when 68-year-old comic actor Martin was funny, and I actually saw him perform his incredible standup act in a packed auditorium of over 3500 people.
It's a shame he wanted to be recognized for "serious" work, and found himself doing extremely painful counterfeits of Peter Sellers' Pink Panther.
Academy Awards should be earned, not given out of pity.

I'm very happy that COOKPAD has been translated.
It's not only easier to understand (as a person who loves J cuisine), it's great to be able to share these great recipes with Western friends and family.
I do wish that, like the Japanese website, they showed the users' ranking of the recipes, and the user comments.
