Overweight and out of shape are two different things, however.

I heard 'baka' a million times too. That company and its employees are history and Japan will be in the same position unless they get out of their gaijin-on-the-brain syndrome. Gaijin does not mean foreigner per se. It means a person who can never be like us; never be equal to us;never fit into our society; a person to be feared, not trusted, reviled, kept at arms length, etc. The young kids are being taught the same as the previous generations so I don't see anything changing anytime soon. My co-workers now don't get it either. Japan in a nut shell.

Japanese seem to have trouble stopping for me in the crosswalk and cut the line regularly when waiting for trains. Thailand is a really cool and friendly country and anyone who has been to both countries knows which place is better for foreign tourists.

Man, puhleeze, Japan is not tidy at all. Walk past Yokohama station west or nothwest exit tonight and see how much trash you find strewn about. Did anyone tell the MLBers they had to clean up the dugout? I hate stupid cliched sayings - If the Romans eat dog poo for dessert, are you going to eat it too? Spare me!

Nojimazaki, is a great spot. In summer, the Boso Peninsula is a really cool place to go cycling, see festivals, go to the beach, etc. Love the place!

Loyal Nissan and Honda man for decades and love my N-Box but I just wonder what would happen if there were an accident. They all need to come fully clean.

Love that skin tone (and all else) on Miss France and a lot of the others. No whitening cream on their dressers I imagine. No bones sticking out either.

Browny1, your post says it all! Every day, there was a story on every channel about Schindler. Go outside right now and ask a hundred Japanese people about this and you'll be lucky to find two who have heard about it. That's Japan.

When my family arrived in New York a few decades ago, there was a train in Manhattan which read ''To Jamaica.'' Being from Jamaica, West Indies, they were puzzled because they knew you had to fly or take a boat to and from the island. When the conductor told them there was a Jamaica in Queens, they were severely disappointed.
