@Tessa "the funniest lies I hear from men are lies of omission. First date: "I'm recently divorced." Second date: "Actually we're not officially divorced yet, just separated." Third date: "Actually we're still living under the same roof for the sake of the kids." Needless to say, there is no fourth date."
Brilliant road map!!! Who needs a fourth date anyways,,,

Either bury and suffocate to death with their siblings or send to animal welfare for summary gassing,,, not sure this is so unusual. The answer is more responsible sterilization of pets. Sorry kittens.

I think this makes perfect sense to refrain. They may worry that Abe will be voted out and his chickenhawk policies will be repealed soon leaving them with a huge PR mess.

I am not a gunner, so I am all for any initiative that allows more flexibility and efficient work styles. However, at my JP company I find even the women are more conservative as me. They tend to fall lockstep into the Japanese mentality along with the men as they are promoted. So I am skrewed,,,

I don't want to defend Abe but sea walls are not just for tsunami protection I think. They protect the shore from erosion and protect the city in typhoons as well. Thus, it seems logical to restore them for multi-purpose functionality to some extent.

I don't like studying English either and it is my native language. Grammar is a hideous subject for old maids to bully young kids. I did however enjoy spelling bees, and literature classes. One of my best teachers was a bisexual man who had us read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Later he was caught in an X-rated movie theater in our town trying to exchange hand jobs with another guy. Anyways I still respect his work ethic.

the straw the broke the camel's proverbial back for me was two years ago paying couple grand for a united ticket to chicago and they wanted to charge me in flight 7 dollars for a beer ( i usually have two then go to sleep ) and there was no in flight entertainment to choose, just a few movies played the same for everyone. Couple bucks more now and I use ANA, but then when in the States you are forced to use crap for domestic flights.

I can't recall the last time I had a positive experience flying a US airline. I use them because they themselves are coddled and protected in my country the US and have landing slots that make it impossible for foreign carriers to compete. Secondly, even if Qatar airlines gets a subsidy that means that I, as an American taxpayer traveler, and getting better product and/or service at the expense of the Qatar government. I don't have a problem with that,,,

@sighclops, excellent excellent post. anyone who actually works in Tokyo should well heed your advice. My only point to differ it jiyugaoka, with the new connection to fukatoshin-sen from last year the toyoko line can be horrendous. I pity the rich folks who bought nice expensive condos in naka-meguro few years back when the toyoko line was pleasant who can barely get on for the final few stops to nakameguro or shibuya,,, Always heard the Meguro line is not bad though.
