750 is too much for a burrito. I pay 600 yen for a great "American" size Mission-style burrito. They're really filling and we don't need a gimmick to get people in Osaka. Here, word of mouth is good enough for us! The place is El Zocalo in the Horie area of Shinsaibashi in Osaka. They're definitely worth the money!

I just avoid the U.S. airlines and their "Obasan" flight attendants. I can't believe how immature the U.S. airlines have become at the expense of the passengers. Not worth the pain of air travel at all. Going through security at U.S. seems like cattle to me. I'd rather pay the extra money and fly the Asian airlines.

Of course no one notices anything; especially the teachers. I hate to say this, but typical of Japanese society. I feel very sad for the two student. Nothing for the teachers. I also hate to say this, but suicide here appears to be typical, too.

I'm with hampton on this. Why don't Japanese men cook for their wives? I love cooking, or is it that the typical salarimonkey can't cook, but bring the bacon instead.

If I knew where that school was, I wouldn't dare send my kids there. Teachers are there to educate, even good values and morals. Apparently at this school, there is little taught about family values and the importance of family. Great for that teacher! I want that teacher teaching my kids!

pizzatime - You are soooooo right! Talk about wine stupidity. This onsen picture proves it. Another wine stupidity about the Japanese is they chill red wine. A big No! No!

I don't care how U.S. airlines raves about their service, especially their business and first class. I've lost total respect for them and won't fly the major airlines. I'll just stick to Virgin America and Jet Blue. The rest of them suck big time. This seat expansion just makes things worse, even worse than cattle class. I just see anything for making the extra buck. Luckily, I don't live in the U.S., but even at that, I won't use them for international flights. I'd rather pay the extra few dollars to get better comfort, service, and even more attractive flight attendants, rather than those senior cows on U.S. carriers. These carriers should learn from the international airlines. Even their domestic service is great. Wise up, U.S. airlines and start thinking about people rather than profit.

If Corporal Punishment happened to my kids, then there will be HELL to pay. There's no way my wife or her family would stop me (if they tried). There is no excuse for this kind of unprofessional and heartless behavior!

Japanese women are usually too self-conscious about themselves not just with swimsuits, but with other things, especially their weight.

If the teacher or the school doesn't confront the issue, then I will if this were my son. Coming from a PR background, I would hold the school accountable and expose the school to the media, foreign or Japanese. However, I have a haunch that I would get a lot further with the foreign media.

“The important thing,” advises Saito, “is to not have an exaggerated estimation of your own child’s virtues. Keep your expectations within bounds. Children tend to demand a good academic record, perfect body, beautiful face. Realistically speaking, there’s no point in laying down conditions that aren’t likely to be met. Parents should say to their children, ‘Character is the most important thing. Be satisfied with someone you’ll be able to feel comfortable with.’”
Blame the media and commercials for this. In the long run, character is definitely more important than looks. Character demonstrates a person's real worth. Unfortunately, I still hear women at work saying that they want a guy who is rich, tall with muscles. Nothing wrong with that, but one has to judge a person for his/her talents, personality, and respect towards another.

Since he's apparently going to Cuba on Aeroflot, I kind of wonder if the U.S. government will try to force the plane down since according to flight tracker, the plane will go through U.S. airspace.
