I would suggest that people do as i did about 4 years ago and no longer have television in the house. After some of the family have recovered from the shock family life is much better. The longer you are away from the goggle box the more you realise how crap and shallow programmes such as this are. Have fun with your family and friends instead and have some exercise rather than slouching on the couch and vegging out.

OMG! Amesome job Van Gay what a guy! You are bringing us back to winning ways in the Premium Soccerball league, Bet Wanger is in tears now and also the Bunners supporters club, lol! No doubt they were crying into their popcorn and Coke's at the end of tournament. At last us real fans of the Red Dealers have something to smile about after Daniel Moyes almost destroyed my beloved club on and off the court in last seasons event. Next season i kinda guess we will be winning the Soccerball league which is our right , Alex Fuggerson made that our destiny dontcha know. I thinkn 'll sing a little song now because i am so goddam happy! " i only sing win we're winning, sing when we're winning" X10,000.

As a Brit i have no time for the place anymore.. It is not all a dump but enough of it is and a lot of the people are not happy with their lot. If you can travel everywhere first class and avoid the chavs you may be ok though.

@smithinjapan You complain and moan like a very poor person, FFS! CD's are better than downloading for me, in fact i don't download. Some classic albums are being reissued in vinyl, love it all. Physiacl items have a resell value in most cases downloaded zero and cannot even be passed on. The Japanese have the right idea, love the place and the mindset.

Nishinomiya? WTF are there people on meds?
Used to live near there and still go around there at times. The Malls are your regular Aeon type thing. Yeah, it has good transport links but it is far from an attractive place to live.

If celebrities do it then it must be a great idea, yawn. Actually the idea is pretty good, most people are sheep and want to be part of the latest fad or trend. They will then join in this and it drwas attention to raising funds. Of course the celebs want it to draw attention to them though.

I remember him being top of the bill at The Fairfield Halls in Croydon in 1978. He beat Mark "Rollerball" Rocco who was his main rival at the time. This was when wrestling was very popular in Britain. it used to be shown on ITV every Saturday afternoon before the football results. Kendo Nagasaki was my hero wrestler back then and as a boy i believed pro wrestling all to be real.

Modern day slavery does not have to mean those forced to work for no pay or fear of violence. The term is used for many other things not just African slavery. It can also mean very poor working conditions and low pay such as the working conditions of these young ladies.

I have been saying this about this awful business for a long time and always get attacked by i guess fans of this trash. Fans who believe thye girls make millions, choose to and make apearances and do things for charity etc.. They have zero control and it is indeed modern day slavery.

Strange that when there is news about someone who is not famous commiting suicide we have many saying how slefish they are and such a coward. When it is a celeb as in this case there is zero condemnation. I find it sad when anyone kills themselves whteher celeb or not.

What next compulsory education only up to 13 years old, then you are expected to work unless you pay? Maybe retirement age at 80 while the elite get richer. Ever feel like you're being cheated?

You don't need to be head ofa major comnpany to be successful and even if you do get that job your are not your own man.
The country to which i refer to is Japan where i reside and i started my own business from 115,000 Yen .Compare starting any business in Japan to where i come from (UK) and there is no comparison. There are so many ways to make money in Japan if you are an English speaker, you don't even have to be fluent in Japanese. maybe the big business rat race route aint to great for foreigners, then go down another one.
Posted in: Foreign talent doesn’t seem anxious to head for Japan anytime soon. Because the country has yet to develop the socioeconomic conditions and cultural mindset that will allow foreign talented individuals to develop and advance their careers.

Wonderful country to start your own business, very little red tape and starting up is so easy with little outlay. People are stuck in this mindset of school - University (debt) - career (paying off debt and being in the rat race).

You imply that Japanese females live so long due to being idle and eating bonbons and cakes. That shows a total ignorance of these matters. The healthier you eat and the more exercise you do increases the lifespan. We can thus deduce that Japanese females eat far healthier and are more active than their Western counterparts.
Being idle and eating crap is what many western females do these days, wonder why the majority are overweight. When i travel to cities in Japan i am always shocked at the flabby ill looking foreigners i see, male and female. Not all are like this of course but i would estimate that at least 70% of Westren adult females could do with losing some weight for starters.
