    Maybe it's time for Japan Inc. to pull up stakes in China and go elsewhere. If China wants to come to Japan for Japanese products that they desire so much then let them on their dime but enough already with these petty little people and their mindsets of never letting up all the while copying this and that, polluting the hell out of everything and having the manners of barn yard animals. Grow up already China! It's time to put on the big boy pants and quit crapping in your nappies every time you don't get what you want.

    The government said the economy was on track for a moderate recovery, in keeping with its main overview at its March assessment, but noted there was some weakness in demand after a sales tax increase went into effect on April 1.

    "but noted there was some weakness in demand after a sales tax increase went into effect on April 1."

    - - - I AM SHOCKED!!! REALLY?!? THEY DIDN'T SEE THIS COMING?!

    What I am not shocked about is how many businesses out there 'cashed in' on the tax hike and raised prices in a smoke and mirrors kind of way. Shameful!

    ASIMO - decked out in a white suit and helmet - stands 1.3 meters tall and weighs in at 50 kg.

    A tad overweight by Japanese 'human' standards... close but some ways to go. ;)

    I guess if you factor in the suit and helmet then you'd be okay weight wise but since he's got no skin under that suit, well...

    Sad that it is coming to this... not feeling like you can trust all police. Note I said 'all' because there are still a large number of Jcops that are trying to do their job but this small number of 'bad apples' out there is making the whole force seem bad because they all seem to get away with it (slap on the wrist). Get rid of the rotten apples NOW before they spoil the bunch or else you'll have one wormy bastard of a mess to deal with.

    Just be glad when Obama leaves we'll have our lockers back again. I use these lockers regularly so I know what a pain in the arse it will be to not have them available for most of a week. I am surprised though that in this day and age of nutters, we still have such easy access to these lockers though. I was reminded of that 'freedom' on a recent trip to Paris where one needed to have their items run through an airpoty style X-ray machine prior to having access to the locker rooms. Hopefully it never comes to that in Japan.

    Mad Men from the outset impressed me with its sets and acting so much so that I sometimes actually found myself holding my breath when the scene entered a cigarette smoke filled room. I almost felt as if I could smell the 'scenes' it was so well filmed. Truly well done series and kudos to Matthew Weiner for a GREAT show!

    And I thought Tennoji was in rough shape all those years. Sadly, this area is far worse and so sad this day and age...

    ...and soon it will be a 100% increase in today's 5% tax rate. Doesn't matter which way you slice it, THIS IS BAD FOR JAPAN. I hope the Japanese economy doesn't stall because of this over the next couple of months. Imagine the crafty back peddling to fix that mess.

    Well, if Japan is to do battle using 'cuteness', I think China should be worried.

    Hopefully, no one will wage war or need to defend its self from a war monger, nutter or bully.

    Said with crazy voice from the makers of South Park... "HA HA, I, your supreme leader Kim Jong Un have once again been voted the number one most popular in North Korea. I am so powerful leader and you all respect me by voting for me... MEEEEEEEEEE!"

    Sure, you let me know when that "heating up" translates into the 'real world' here in Japan. The only things I see going up are my utility bills, taxes, food, petrol... wages increasing, I WISH!!!

    Posted in: Wages are facing strong upward pressure because of the heating labor market. Wage increases will feed into prices, getting the economy on the path for sustainable inflation.

    Sadly this isn't looking good. An aircraft like the 777-200 doesn't just disappear without some sort of warning to air traffic control unless the cockpit is disabled instantly. Hoping for the best but sadly fearing the worst.

    Not defending the stupid move of slamming the green in anger but since when does a 13mm gash to the green equates to a crater? Oh yeah Matsuyama "buried his putter in the 13th green 5 ft from the hole, Referee had to repair the crater. Because he didn't" "Buried his putter", how did they ever find it?

    JeffLee quoted me "We can't confuse the Muslims because if they convert we will have no simpletons to control with religion..."

    They're not allowed to convert. It's a crime there and the ones who try are often jailed.

    This speaks volumes as to how much of a power trip these Muslim leaders and the Malay government are. It almost seems to be a last ditch effort to hold onto what little power they have, 'you're either with us or we'll throw you in jail to punish you if you try to quit the club'. If that doesn't sound like a 'dictatorship religion' run by a goon squad hiding behind a curtain, I don't know what is.

    Yes, THANKS JT for reminding me that it's almost race season and of the new power plants. Will be interesting this year as all the teams will be figuring things out which should make for some interesting battles on the track and in pit lane.

    The government says Allah should be exclusively reserved for Muslims because of concerns its use by others would confuse Muslims and tempt them to convert.

    Yup, this says it all. The Malay government believes Muslims can easily be confused.

    We can't confuse the Muslims because if they convert we will have no simpletons to control with religion...
