    Japanese complaining out loud about smoking? Yeah sure. Whatever. If that were the case, there'd be a total ban in restaurants already. Late next year, England will make it illegal for someone to smoke inside a car when there is a child. And Japan can't even make sure diners can eat in peace.

    The most common reply was requesting ‘Do you mind if I smoke’ beforehand

    Never heard that in Japan.

    Why are these questions always 'How much will the man spend on gifts for her?', 'What restaurant will he treat her to', blah blah blah. No wonder fewer Japanese men want to enter in a relationship with Japanese women. What will SHE buy for him?

    Couldn't he have just said someone planted the money on him? Despite the CCTV evidence, I know a swimmer who'd believe him.

    Deal with it, Japan. Whether they show it or not in Japan, the rest of the world will be able to see it.

    Takeuchi acknowledged Jolie is free to make whatever movie she wants, stressing that Shinto believes in forgive-and-forget

    Some things are not for YOU to forgive. Yes, FORGET is the key word here.

    “Even Japanese don’t know their own history, so misunderstandings arise,” said Takeuchi, who heads his research organization, the Japan Culture Intelligence Association.

    You can say that again! Just about as much research as that done for creationism theme parks.

    As a non-Japanese living in Japan, I have the luxury of leaving Japan should it feel like we're going back to the 1930's. I can't say the same about most other Japanese. But if they're so apathetic as to let Botchan do what he wants, to the detriment of the country, then that's their problem.

    blvtzpk: Last weekend, practically every single Youtube video I was watching too was proceeded by videos of this lame duck. Annoying and horrible to say the least.

    he said the elderly should be allowed to “hurry up and die”

    well take some of your own advice!

    And here's my advice. Next time you put your foot in your mouth, try the other foot, because your mouth is bending more and more to one side - crooked.

    I'm glad these sort of politicians would be thrown out in my country. I don't envy you at all, tinawatanabe! Hang on, where's Nigelboy? He should be here giving his politicians a pat on the back - the very best leading his beloved nation.

    Those who are banging on about the necessity of milk seem to be oblivious to the China Study - just read about it. Just because something has calcium doesn't mean it's good for you. Cases of osteoporosis were low in China before the increase in consumption of milk. The dairy industry have got most people wrapped round their fingers. And let's not forget the number people who are lactose intolerant, especially Asians.

    We were given milk at school when we were young and I was the only one who didn't take it - couldn't stand the smell, especially the full cream type. Sure, make it available to those who want it, but don't force it down everyone's throat. Parents should do a bit more reading instead of just listening to the dairy industry. Calcium isn't only found in milk.

    gogogo:

    Don't parents have anything better to do, milk is for growing kids!

    Oh puleeez! A mother's milk from their breast is for their own babies only.

    As for Japanese rice...

    Send him to the closest Russian airport, short flight = cheap

    Flights from Japan (Niigata?) to Vladivostok are not cheap! I was interested in visiting the Russian Far East but was put off by the airfares.

    Yes, I'm quite surprised a sumo version of Oh Sadaharu has reared its ugly head yet. It's a shame that he is pressurized into giving up his nationality to achieve his dream. He's not trying to become a politician.

    Me too, I've heard of it (somewhere - could have been TV), but fat lot of use it is for me as I live here. It's as if residents never spend money on travelling around the country and buying goods.

    He might just end up in the slammer alongside all those ojiisans who wanted a roof and three hot meals everyday.

    honestdictator (an apt name!):

    I guess you missed the videos which showed Uighurs watching people play mah-jong and then suddenly pull out knives and axes and start chopping people, or those driving cars trying to run pedestrians down. But don't let that change your mind out the bogeymen - ordinary Chinese citizens going about their lives, minding their own business.

    You may not like Chinese people, but innocent people don't deserve to be stabbed to death or blown up. You'd be throwing a hissy fit if it happened in your country. You know, some Americans are offended when others say 9/11 was a conspiracy nothing to do with Muslim extremists or terrorists. Double standards.

    If it takes place in China, they're either 'terrorists' or freedom fighters. If it takes place in UK or USA, well, they're evil terrorists.
