Heck "I'll never cheat on you", is a dead giveaway. Never say it. Also if a woman asks you the question... then you need to think about her insecurities too. They should ask women that have been married for 30 years.... for the top 10 clues to choosing the right guy.

Japanese art... be it a small boat or car on its nose.... is all about how inevitable it is that Japan endure hardship. Hardship is endured by, on average, everyone, Japan does not have a monopoly on it although they think they do.

Nice... they actually beat Japan at its own game. The used Japan's overly strict import rules.... one's actually designed to protect their domestic markets.... and slapped them in the face with them. Love it!

I don't know which is a more hideous crime..... pimping out this poor girl.... or underpaying her. I certainly hope the courts prosecute both crimes.

Same here.... I have tons of respect for Japanese women... and not very much for the men overall. I don't think its a case of men continually trying to maintain control in Japan.... it really just manifests itself because when it actually comes to culture.... Japan changes very slowly. Japan cannot help itself.... they're proud that they've been able to adapt and modernize for the last 150 years without culturally changing much.... but at some point the culture needs to change from its male dominated ways.

No doubt.... as others have mentioned.... this really makes the S. Korean Govt look bad. I'm starting to think that S. Korea is where, centuries ago, the Chinese sent all of their problem children.

I would think that... before he could go to the bank the organization must have been registered and approved in Japan as a non-profit company. Did he do that first?

The S. Korean National pastime... protesting. The thing is.... the more and more they protest... the less meaningful it becomes. Its like a child that barely falls but bursts our crying just for the attention.... but when the kid really falls and gets hurt no one pays attention thinking its just another cry for attention.

I watched the original U.K. series too... it was great! If you don't like the U.S. version... so be it... but while, hopefully, over the top, it does offer a lot of insight on how things work in D.C. Just spend some time with a real Politician and you'll realize... many of them lack real empathy and only look at events on how it will affect them. Shaking the hand of an enemy is just part of the game.

Two bombs.... no American deaths... from an American's point of view it was a success. Japan, Germany and Russia were working on the Atomic bomb too. Should the U.S. apologize for successfully developing and using the bomb first should be the question. And therein asks another question.... had Japan or Germany been successful... would they have used it?
Posted in: How come Japan has never demanded an official apology from any U.S. government for the dropping of atomic bombs on two of its cities? In fact, why don't Japanese hate America for dropping the bombs?

And yet another Sony recovery plan.... To me... the next step with consumer technology is to add as many censors to handheld devices as possible. I still have not encountered a phone that can measure the size of anything by using the camera and other software. In addition... what about object recognition.... wouldn't it be great to point your camera at something and find out what it is and get additional information. I'm not talking about pointing it at a bar code. Health related censors too. Japan is great at this kind of stuff.... other companies must be working on it... it is the next step in handheld technology.

I'm guilty myself.... comparing Japan to other countries when something bad happens and say 'well its worse' here or there. But going forward I'm getting away from comparing and just concentrate on Japan. Trying to paint Japan in a better light just because it happens less than other places is a waste of time. Addressing Japan's issues is what it should be about.... not shrugging them off because it happens more somewhere else.

Now I could see it being punishable if a Muslim drew up pictures and published or gave them out... but why should a non-muslim be held accountable? In fact... from what I've read the Quran does not explicitly forbid images of Muhammad, but there are some supplemental teachings which have prohibited Muslims from creating visual depictions. I think some of these stricter Muslims need to come to grips that they cannot prevent non-muslims from exercising their freedom of expression.
