    Women should just learn to sit around and do nothing other than watch the years tick by so they get promoted for just being there like most Japanese salarymen do.

    Shame on women for not knowing that its how long you've been part of the office furniture that counts; not any real experience.

    Posted in: It's a custom among Japanese corporations to promote someone who knows the company well: people who have been with the company a long time and have transferred to different departments and places. Women tend to end up quitting before experiencing all that.

    Yes. Semantics.

    Geez lets take your flawed logic and argument that points and runs are the same thing one step further and apply it to your hockey scenario............RUN scored! Your argument not mine. You were wrong, plain and simple.

    Well, I would say that you don't "run" in hockey, so that is an invalid point. But, that would be semantics again. I get your point, but it's wrong.

    Then stop making judgments and comments about things you know nothing about. You make across the board claims that are blatantly false, learn to live with being corrected, you MIGHT actually learn something.

    You could be right.

    Again using your logic, if this was to happen, for the sake of discussion here, how would the two teams play the next game, which was the championship game of the tournament. What you suggest here is impossible.

    It was a KIDS tournament, not the World Series.

    Be like the semi-finals of the Frozen Four being the FINAL match because neither team could end up scoring. Never happen. (See I know the difference between a run, a point, and a goal, and quite a few others too, if you are interested in educating yourself let us know I am sure there are plenty that would help to train you!)

    A hockey game would take 4 days to decide a winner. It's far harder on the body than baseball/softball where you get to sit down for most of the game and only really run a short distance every couple of minutes. Pitchers have a hard time though. Especially in Japan.

    Just goes to show how much you are ignorant of how Japanese sports in school are run. Yes they do, btw, run to the point of exhaustion for at least 4 days, and many times as much as 7 days, before meets or contests. Which also leads to your next point:

    I've never been in a Japanese school, not do I ever want to.

    Not even close, you score runs in baseball not points and that is universally known. Using your logic a basketball game score could be 115 runs to 110 runs....very much NOT the same thing. There is a reason for the terminology.

    Semantics. Baskets are points too. Calling them "runs" would be stupid. Run>point, not point>run.

    Then why pray tell are you commenting about a subject you are obviously ignorant about, like you know what you are talking about?

    You are very passionate for a baseball fan. You should try hockey, it's more interesting.

    Anyway, they should have made both teams the winner after it was still 0-0 afier 25 innings or something.

    Why do some of you say this is child abuse? If a high schooler runs to the point of exhaustion (as the distance runners do) - is that child abuse? Or a tennis player? This sort of performance is what athletes sometimes do.

    Because the kids who run to the point of exhaustion etc doesn't have to do it every day for 4 days or whatever. Which also leads to your next point:

    This is it for these kids - they don't have an athletic career after this tournament. They are out there because they want to be there for their teammates and their school.

    The pitchers probably won't have. Since they probably have messed-up shoulders from all that throwing.

    Probie, they don't have points in baseball. They score runs.

    Run/point = the same thing.

    And actually, scoreless games are very exciting. Imagine a game where one mistake could be the end. A nail biter.

    That must be a baseball fan's perspective. Because scoreless baseball games are even more boring than regular baseball games, which are like sleeping pills to me ;)

    Japanese players shouldn't go to the Premier League. It's too physical for them, and there are so many players who are FAR better than they are, so unless they are AMAZING, or playing at a weaker team. They have no chance. They should stick to the German leagues. Even Honda would be destroyed in the EPL.

    Both pitchers threw for the entire 50 innings. By the end of the 45th inning, the pair had thrown a combined 1,252 pitches to 225 batters.

    This should be called child abuse. Just shows how boring baseball can be. 49 innings without a single point???

    Because they think it looks better? It does. Kanji looks stupid on uniforms.

    Can't say I found that video very funny. Seems to be a panic attack, which I don't find funny. Morons trolling on trains and then videoing and posting a woman close to a breakdown isn't funny to me.

    If she is that afraid of men, she must be constantly panicking. She needs professional help.

    The "Women Only" cars even say on them that they ask for your help. It isn't a law. You can ignore them if you want. The idiot guys who work for the train company who forced the guy off should be fired.

    Women complain about "men only" golf clubs etc, but crap like this are fine.

    Although, we all know you can only be sexist if you're a man...

    He has a plan. He just does not want to send a telegraph to ISIS.

    Yeah, because saying "we have a plan" will completely spill the beans. Wikileaks is full of articles that just say "we have a plan". The weather forecast is always "tomorrow, there will be weather"...

    Stop blindly supporting Obama. He's been the worst president in decades, if not ever.

    I want cars only for people who have common sense and decency. Everyone riding on it would be able to take up 3 seats it would be so empty.

    "Cool Japan" will always be a cringe-worthy slogan. Sounds like it was thought up by a guy in his late 50s. He probably does a double thumbs up whenever he says it too.

    Tomomi Inada, the strategist behind Cool Japan, told reporters that the updated and more global mission of “Cool Japan” would be to make Japan a country that creatively tackles challenges that face the world, TBS reported Wednesday. The proposal includes 32 different plans to expand upon the “Cool Japan” initiative.

    What are these "32 different plans to expand upon the “Cool Japan” initiative"? I would have thought that would be a major part of this story.

    Also, even by just briefly glancing through the "Cool Japan Initiative" information. I found dozens of spelling/grammar mistakes.

    Maybe before they start all these grand plans, they should get themselves in order.

    An Officer and a Gentleman: 愛と青春の旅だち (Ai to Seishun no Tabitachi / The Travellers of Love and Youth)

    旅だち does not mean "travellers". That is an awful translation.

    Whoever translated it should go into the Japanese movie re-naming industry.

    Are you serious? Can you be any more closed minded? We're living in the 21st century. Get with the times. Everyone has the freedom to express themselves no matter what their religion or race is ESPECIALLY if they are born and raised in that very country. Citizens should be tolerant with each other. Stop dividing the country by the dumb logic of 'majority rules'. We're not second graders here. Let's act like adults.

    Are you saying that countries should abandon hundreds of years of their history and society, because a group of people with different culture/beliefs don't agree with it?

    How would you think it would go across if christian went to live in Saudi Arabia, and wanted to build a church and walk around wearing a crucifix? Hint: not well.

    Why is it alright for some countries to force people to do something, while others are vilified?

    People shouldn't move to a country and expect the country to adapt to them.

    Posted in: In some countries, there is a ban on adults and children wearing religious clothing and symbols such as burqas, veils, head scarves, skullcaps, turbans and crucifixes in public places like schools, recreational facilities and so on. What’s your stance?

    It's fine if it's fair.

    If a christian country ends up banning christian motifs so they don't offend muslims living there, it's wrong. If you are a muslim living in a christian country and christian stuff offends you, go live in a muslim country.

    If things covering the face are not allowed in the country you live in and you're a muslim woman who "has to" wear a burka, either take it off, or go live in a muslim country. Even if you were born and raised there. If your beliefs don't fit with that, you should go somewhere that does.

    I can't understand why anyone would support the ban other than because they don't like religion. In that case, what gives you the right to force your views on others?

    That is what a lot of the "victims" do.
