    Hopefully this means we'll see more of these beers in Japan at cheaper prices?

    I hope you don't work as a risk analyst. That is like saying nuclear weapons are perfectly safe since they haven't killed anybody since 1945. The potential for mass death by Islamists is massive. They murdered 3000 people in Manhattan one weekday morning. If the US and West hadn't responded, they would have killed thousands more Westerners, because they could. Planes filled with civilians would be dropping out skies on a regular basis. . If numbers now are relatively low, it's due to the extensive security apparatus constructed since 2001.

    I don't think you get it. When you talk about numbers you will always come out underwhelming as disease kills off thousands of times more people each year than terrorists, but there is no uneducated class knee-jerk whinge about the war on disease or medical research advancement; in fact half of this class believes vaccines are actually dangerous.

    When you have people going mad over a threat that doesn't do anywhere near as much damage as harder to understand concepts such as cancer or lifestyle disease, plus the threat being foreign, you have the perfect recipe for the very, very bottom of the world coming out from their squalid lives to cause a stir, because they are so miserable with their own lives. Surely you can grasp that?

    In fact, deliberately ignoring far more devastating threats to your country amounts to treason and a crime against humanity. Those who wet their panties over terrorism should be classified as such

    What about the middle-class who are educated? And how do they know they're safe? I'm sure lots of Parisians were feeling safe that night out on the town on Friday Nov.13th, 2015.

    I'm not talking about physical safety, I'm talking about lifestyle and employment safety, mainly to do with the upcoming mass redundancy of people's jobs. Only the truly paranoid in the West would fear being killed in a terrorist attack, which is less likely than getting hit by a meteor and being struck by lightning at the same time. People only become fearful of outsiders when there is a personal risk to themselves, and that is clearly manifested in these peoples' fears that there will be unbearable competition of dwindling jobs in the near future, so it makes sense.

    There's a massive resentment to how technology is destroying the workplace, especially among those who wouldn't be able to get qualified in some area even if they wanted to, and this is going to cause the worst social upheaval we've seen in 100 years over the next 15 years or so I reckon. Our education system just isn't able to keep up with the skills that are most needed in today's world.

    I doubt this will end even if all immigration is ceased. I reckon it has more to do with a deeper fear of what is to come when 50% of all employment is eliminated by automation and there is mass redundancies in people's lives, that is when severe trouble can be expected. You never see the wealthy or the educated protesting in the streets against immigration because they know they are safe and have provisioned for the future

    That's good news! Hopefully Japan gets a good haul this time round! It would be in everyone's interests I think to ban Russia's athletics and whatever other doped up teams they have as it could be fatal to image of the Olympics, already so poor as it is

    Something like this should be creating huge news in the West, however it isn't really creating any news at all.. Do Westerners even care about dolphins?

    Seeing as there is a conflict in interpretation, the UN should perform an extensive study into the issue and put it to rest permanently, having both sides accepting the final outcome beforehand. The problem is that there doesn't seem to be any official understanding of what happened and this naturally produces a polarized perception of what happened. Physical and documentary evidence is 100% required and should be plentiful if over 200,000 really were state-organized as alleged. A UN investigation should easily be able to find the truth

    Nice points, however every Japanese logistics company I've dealt with here is far and away superior in all aspects than overseas. Back home in Sydney, delivery is mind-blowingly shocking and unacceptable

    I always enjoy the Hostess bars, but I would never go if I had to pay my own money; we go often for work, but that's about it.

    I think this article pretty much sums up the general focus of hostess bars in that it always focuses on the girls working there and how it's a disreputable job to have, however this industry wouldn't exist if there wasn't such massive demand for it in Japan. Attack the demand rather than the girls, most probably having to rely on this completely as a form of income and well-being seeing as job opportunities are so poor elsewhere
