    Brought to you by the smiling friendly Liberals who follow directly back to Menzies and the "White Australia Policy". What ethnicity Australians did you think they were appealing to with their 'turn back the boats' mantra?

    When I lived in "Smalltown", Saitama, about 7 years ago, the next door neighbour nearly threw his wife through the wall - at head height. She screamed for help. My Japanese wife called the cops.

    They came straight upstairs (fighting and yelling still going on next door), stright to OUR apato, and threatened to arrest me (the only gaijin within 500m), then left.

    Any follow up? Yes, they attended my workplace and reported ME to my employer for disturbing the Wa........

    I was green enough to be surprised that they knew where the only gaijin in town lived and worked.....

    Go Ahead, JTers.....get involved....

    Posted in: If you heard someone screaming nextdoor, and felt it was someone being physically abused, would you intervene in some way, or call the police, or do nothing and just mind your own business?

    A little tip here.......the only thing more awkward than naked communal bathing with your brand new Japanese in-laws......is having your own gaijin parents there too.

    After that, simply going to a mixed public onsen with the mrs. and strangers was downright comfy!!!

    I guess now we know the value of that Japanese diplomat's (in the US) wife's dignity (and teeth)......

    Not much parity in sentencing in ANY country these days.....

    Just because these women are "not married" does NOT mean they are 'without a man' or 3 or 7.

    I personally can say I did my bit to salute the massively underappreciated non-child females of Japan.

    Pffffft.......In Australia, the licensed premises that served him alcohol beyond inebbriation would be charged with this crime.

    i'm an Aussie. I understand the Aussie sense of humour.

    There was NEVER going to be anything remotely funny about trying to disturb Will and Kate while she was IN HOSPITAL due to suffering.....

    .......the fact that this poor nurse took the responsibiltiy of her job this strongly can be ENTIRELY attributed back to these idiots trying to make their living from taking cheap cracks at the actual lives of others, to try to gain fame/notoriety for themselves.

    Freedom of the press........and the duty to protect the freedom of HONEST people who have done no wrong.

    Claiming the excuse of 'comedy' has NO value........ like racist gags.....it was NEVER going to be funny to anyone.

    Very Poor.

    Who's gonna teach your expats Japenese, so that they can 'bridge' with their Chinese desired marketplace???

    Wow - Nuclear Disaster won't get you to vote, 200+% GDP debt won't get you to vote, but 3 girls in school outfits can 'inspire' you to get out there???

    If that's the case, Japan is better off without elections.....

    " crops last year failed to meet safety standards, which resulted in them being banned from sale in Japan"

    Where did it all go then???

    " Sato also said that results of these radiation tests on a variety of produce *would be *published on a web page."

    Not "have been" or "at this address" - but can't seem to regain that trust quickly enough....

    Hmmmmm..........Great standards all through the rest of the world, but when they plan expanding into new routes to give price competition to the Japanese people, suddenly we have 'safety concerns'.....

    Kind of ironic that a country that had the 'white-Australia" policy a generation and a half ago, now has a "white-paper" to engage Asia more strongly...

    Not ALL of Australia is anti-asian.......strange that the mining-type areas that benefit most from Asia are the ones most likely to be Xenophobic......

    2 weeks ago, after her father died, Alan Jones (Strong Tony Abbott supporting Talk Radio shock jock) claimed that her father "died of shame" from her behaviour as Prime Minister.

    Yesterday, in Parliament, Tony Abbott said her government was "dying of shame", and there are questions about whether this slimeball deserved a spray????

    It was the best politics coverage I've seen in years.

    Australia needs to be a country of humility. Its police and its people need to learn a tolerance of different values, ideology and principals to accept others. All Aussies need to work on that.

    Australia may be one of the FEW countries in the world where you would be ALLOWED the freedom of speech to protest in the streets witha placard proposing beheadings.

    Police allowing this activity, but drawing the line at coming too close to an Embassy, need to "learn tolerance"???? When my wife immigrated to Australia, she signed stat decs that she intended to uphold the LAWS of this land. It was this way when many of these folks immigrated to Australia.

    When Police direct you......you comply.

    THIS is the LAW. Tolerance is not up for negotiation.

    Quote "The BPO business includes printing/delivering important postal matters including electricity/gas/water/communications invoices and bank account statements to end users" Unquote

    This translates to 'have progressed from just delivering junk mail, to actually printing and delivering junk mail'.

    This business started 2kms from my parents' house....

    A business specialising in paper media is a really strong opportunity for growth (sarcasm).....a big step forward for a company that has just been put out of it's core business by the march of technology.

    Maybe they can become "Dinosaur Tech"??

    You missed "How tall are you?" and "Why are you here?".

    Funny......back in my sensei-days, I used to to discuss 'the 5 questions' and why they never make you look better to the foreigner you're trying to impress, when teaching upper level students.

    I enjoy my revenge of Demanding to know "Why are you here???" from any Japanese person I meet over here in Gaigoku.....before actually kindly giving them any real help they might need.

    Oddly....they give me a look like it's a very strange question to ask......heheheeee.
