when I worked for ECC in Nagoya the best place was on the stairs up to the roof.No one ever came up and the ECC banners made nice pillows and blankets but I did scare the hell out of one workman when he came up the stairs and I crawed out from under a banner.Ah those were the days

In my experience it was a lot less harmful years ago because of the potency.Years ago in Canada i had some and it was ridiculously strong compared to in the 80s 90s.Wouldnt fancy staring on that now.But the odd tke now and then never hurt.

I'm with peace train here.Lived here over 17 years ,speak the lingo and ended up over 7 hours in a police station for bumping into to someone getting off the train.Because when there is a choice between believing the foreigner or a native guess which one to side with.They also tried to get my wife to sign a paper consenting to my guilt but told her it was for something else.
Yes if you are asking directions or going through a checkpoint they are fine but it desnt take long for their true colrs to come out.
Used to live inFrance and teach in a seriously rough area of Lyon.Cops at my high school at least once a week,
French cops are "macho" but they do actually listen to what you say.
Here the cops just shut down and immediately think that as aforeigner you are less righteous than a native.
And like peacetrain I like living in Japan still just dont trust the cops an inch which is sad in a way.

I remember this last year in nagoya. and they had a place of honour for the record whoppers eaten in the 30 mins.11 if I remember well.Nearly made me sick thinking some pig had stuffed dwon 11 whoppers in 30 minutes.Did they savour the taste as they pigged out.Gross

Snowden may be an ass but he did expose alot of wrongdoing.This will not happene in the future.
Look at Abe and his boys recently maikng a law that would put people behind bars for a much longer timethan at present for exposing secrets...exposing secrets, whistle blowing etc they are just all the same thing.Very Chinese of the US govt..But at least those politicians feel toug when they posture in front of the mirror..I wish i was as cool as them.

methinks the japanese esteem themselves too much.
Posted in: Ever since Tokyo Olympic bid ambassador Christel Takigawa used the word "omotenashi" - a term expressing the spirit of Japanese selfless hospitality - in her speech to the IOC last week, it has become a buzzword among newspapers and TV programs. What do you think about it?
