    I don't mind them, really, I've got nothing to hide.

    One day I got into an elevator and found a sobbing little girl in there. I asked her if she was all right, and she replied "I can't find my doll!" At the next floor she got out and ran off, crying. Now, if you are a man, wouldn't you be glad that the whole exchange was captured on camera?

    I think they meant "An American Crime"

    I've just checked ... there were actually two movies released around the same time.

    Reminds me of a movie I saw a few years back. True story, sometime in the 50s in the US. The parents were away on a traveling circus and had strangers watch their kids. The whole foster family, including the kids got involved in the torture. She was chained in the basement. She finally escaped.

    This was indeed based on a horrifying true story, but the real girl in question died of her injuries in the end. Apart from that, the similarities in the two cases are eerie. Look up Sylvia Likens for more information.

    Not a SINGLE day has gone by, save that I have not come into contact with others when I had a cold (and even then there was news or posts about it), that I haven't heard whining and complaining about the number of Chinese and Koreans at tourists sites.

    I hear the same thing on a daily basis from my Japanese students and friends, and yet I also hear (and witness) from foreign tourists about the kindness of Japanese people, who are more than willing to give them directions, or assist them when buying train tickets and the like.

    Western men coming to Japan expecting a lot of poontang are the most easily controlled.

    I nearly died of laughter. So true! Bait, set, and trap.

    The washlet sprays have a self cleaning function.

    Supposedly yes, they do. But if you actually manually clean them (which I do at home, on a regular basis) you'll see that they are filthy! This is probably the reason that women, who do most of the cleaning around the house, refuse to use them outside of their homes.

    Love having them at home but never use the spray function in public ones.

    Do a little experiment in your conversation classes. Get the female students started on the wonders of the washlet ... then ask them if they actually use them outside of their own homes. I have never, ever met a Japanese woman who used a washlet in a public washroom, ever. Only foreign tourists do that!

    But I have read a report ( can't find the link) which states that constant long term use of these anal cleaners has negative effects.

    I've read elsewhere that they are thought to be a contributing factor to rising infertility rates in Japan. Not sure why, though.

    The future of the Japanese economy is in the toilet.

    I nearly fell off my chair with laughter! Two thumbs up!

    the mother seemed to have been incapable of doing anything for her family. Neighbours and school friends say that she was rarely seen outside, the children took the garbage out, and the eldest daughter did all the cooking. Mother also apparently said that she couldn't cope because she was too tired, and suggested to her children that they go to "heaven" together. Sounds like she really was ill, either physically or mentally (well, one thing usually leads to another).

    How preventable was this sad situation?

    I work with a lot of mothers and small children in Japan, and here is something that I wish I could communicate to them: If you are ever having problems coping, and you are thinking harmful thoughts, then please tell me. I promise I won't judge you, and I will do everything in my power to help you.

    I live in Kansai, and my electricity bill for my 3DK apartment is 4,000 yen a month. I think that's pretty reasonable.

    One day I was buying emergency supplies of feminine hygiene products (tampons) in my local convenience store. The only clerk on duty was a young man. I refused to be served by him, to his puzzlement, and a sharp-eyed female clerk called him away and took over. These things happen!

    Saw this on the news and was amazed and delighted to see a doting new father cradling his newborn daughter. A few days ago it was Prince William, and now it's some anonymous stranger from Canada. Either way, congratulations!

    You know what's a better solution than avoiding online dating sites? Men not raping.

    Wish I could click on this a hundred times!

    In real life, in actual war-like conditions, using drones seems safer than sending in live pilots to do the wipeouts.

    Um, safer for who? Pilots or victims?

    Personally I owe a great debt of gratitude to the human Charlotte. For the past few days, I haven't had to plan a single lesson for my grannies' classes. All they do is babble about the little princess.
