Japan, you are frigging crazy. How do I know? I looked to the right and saw an article of a Japanese man who chopped off hits naughty bits and cooked them. To make it worse, Japanese people lined up for chance to pay to eat them.
Now, one of the highest people in government believes a hidden tattoo is going to contaminate one of their precious kids.
I worked at an elementary school for 2 weeks when I first got to Japan, and saw a student kick one of the teachers in the stomach, and walk away Scot-free. The same day, a pair of Japanese Monster Parents informed me that they wanted me to forget about the other students and spend more time with their little precious rugrat. After not liking my answer of essentially "Frig off, I won't ignore the other kids" they complained to the school.
Now, I own my own school while some 19 year old WHV-holder deals with that mess.

I hope you all know that the Yaki imo trucks get the wood to bake their potatoes from where ever they can, including wood used from old houses that were chemically treated with a variety of toxins. "Itadakima~su!"

Fail? She'll make some money, but it won't be on par with Britney, and the other Pop stars. I imagine one concert in LA, and one in NY before she comes back to Japan labeled as "an International Star" by the Japanese media. Then she'll make a killing here in Japan. Where is the fail in that? Yen can be converted to dollars, Euros, dinars, pesos... fairly easily at the bank.

I guess there are no tranquilizer guns in Japan. They should let loose one of the recent "knifers" or the 60 year-old lady that threatened the school, to rid Tokyo of this "troublemaker" that urinates in public.

Yeah, I saw the time difference too. It's bad reporting/writing. It should be worded correctly so it is more clear to readers.

Is that 6,000 or 60,000? A Typo?
Thepro, quite a few are. My wife used to work for Gucci and LV and she sees some everyday. They are not hard to spot really for people that know LV. There are some really good copies out there that pass as authentic without a really good look.

wareware, why did you use quotation marks around the word safety?
Posted in: Road traffic laws in Europe and the United States are simple, whereas in Japan pedestrians are always exposed to the risks of bicycles bumping into them from all directions...It is time for us to go back to the original point of the road traffic law, where bicycles and cars share the road.
