    If these people are so easily manipulated and brain washed, European countries should start kicking out all these hate imams, some of them even on benefits.

    The HAKUHO MARU (I looked it up) is a research vessel. I could be wrong, but these youngsters are likely getting some practical, hands on experience before getting a job ashore and donning lab coats. Not recently, but I sailed for many years as marine engineer and never saw a life jacket. Seems incredible now.

    My Japanese acquaintances always try to rub it in when it comes to baseball, so I can’t help to remind them, that the Netherlands are the last, true baseball world champions, since they won the final Baseball World Cup and that they beat Japan. They don’t believe me and it’s met with laughter, but it is true. But ok, baseball isn’t exactly a popular sport in Europe.

    Somehow I have more sympathy for the Jordanian pilot than Goto. He was sent to fly over Syria by his government. Goto to the contrary was warned not to go there. That is a very different starting point.

    That’s pretty harsh. The pilot was (hopefully) going to kill scores of them, while Goto was, foolishly perhaps, just looking for Yukawa. Anyway, didn’t ISIS say that they would release, alive I assume, both the pilot and Goto for the suicide bomber?

    Bad news for the 2 Japanese hostages. They have already been paraded in front of the camera by ISIS, decked out in orange jump suits and are awaiting an unsavory outcome, unless Abe pays ISIS an equal 200 million in ransom.

    So, are the women selling themselves in Roppongi, Kabukicho, and many other places in Japan still sex slaves?

    What is that for a warped comparison. As far as I can tell, in Kabuki-cho, a single woman does not have to service a long line of eagerly waiting men and no woman there has been murdered with a bayonet or bullet.

    In de 90's,Takata was also involved in a seat belt recall. Takata and the Japanese auto makers believed seat belts failed due to user abuse. It wasn't, belt buckles failed due to improper material. Honda was fined for failing to report the problem while fulle aware of it. Takata, and Honda as well, apparently haven't learned anything of it.

    As long as a person doesn't stink, I am not offended by a person's looks, but when I see a fellow having his meal like that in a restaurant, with one leg on the next chair, sporting a mohawk haircut, I know I am seeing a person who is, well, not you average, ever so polite, Japanese person. In hindsight, the best way in this case would have been to confirm your suspicions by politely asking if the chair was taken or not, instead of pulling is from under his leg and mentioning something along the lines of "I am going to rip of your head and do something down your neck". Unless you would have the psysique to being able to actually make good on your word and not being half your opponents weight. By just asking, he maybe have relinguished the chair, equally politely or not, or maybe he would have berated you and told you to take a hike, but you likely wouldn't experience what angry elephants sometimes do to a human being. His employer wasn't there either to say "he is really a kind, gentle and serious person", but then the employer and you wouldn't have known that this fellow had been drinking since 5PM. You also wouldn't have known that his business cards are printed with the flag of the Imperial Japanese Navy, stating his views on the Senkaku islands. It only became apparent when the officers of the law showed up and he told the cops "食べる終わるまで待ってろや!If I am not mistaken, chinpira most often end their sentences with "ろや!" Anyway, it's not worth the hassle. Better to be safe than dead.

    The preliminary report on the flight recorders will be announced in early September, according to various news sources. Flight recorders aren't able to record if it was a missile, let alone the type of missile, that made them stop recording. They only record the various parameters of the plane and what the pilots are babbling about. That all stopped suddenly due to a "massive explosive decompression". That's all they will be able to announce. Specialists mentioned that pictures show "tell tale holes left by a missile strike" and these same specialists can possibly determine the type of missile and where it was fired from, by examining the wreckage, but inspectors from Australia and the Netherlands weren't able to, due to first being refused access to the wreckage by the rebels and later because of the fighting going on around the crash site. And besides, people had been rummaging through the wreckage for days or weeks already, so who knows what, if anything, was taken away. Anybody could have known this by reading the news. Not that conspiracy crap that is clogging the interweb.

    It's not important whether these armored vehicles are still driving around or have been shot to pieces. Of importance is the fact that these tanks etc. have been seen crossing the border from Russia into Ukraine. By non Russian and non Ukrainian sources I might add. It means that the Russian authorities are lying, which they have been doing from day one, when they decided to annex the Crimea. What do you fellows think about reports of pro-Ukrainian civilians having been executed/murdered in these rebel held cities? Is that propaganda too?

    So, what is Putin up to this time. First few trucks of this "aid" convey that are being opened for inspection are.....nearly empty, except for a few carton boxes containing condensed milk. Is that all they can spare for their supposedly oppressed brethren in the People's Republic of Donetsk? Or was it merely window dressing in order to make Putin look good without him showing his naked torso? Or, have they been hastily offloading stuff that the Ukrainian authorities would have deemed as not exactly being kosher? Hey, I'm just guessing here, because why on earth would they send empty trucks?

    Depends on whether these restaurant managers made an honest mistake or, however unlikely, cheated on their own account. Or, did Kisoji HQ tell these restaurant managers, we don't care how you do it, but raise profits or else? Also of interest is, did HQ call the Consumer Affairs Agency voluntarily, as soon as they find out the excess of 1000man yen in the books or if it was some disgruntled employee blowing the whistle. They overcharged customers 1,500 yen per plate and as there were over 7,000 servings, that makes for a handsome profit of over 10 million yen. No chump change. The good thing is, it was real beef. Imagine if a "beef bowl chain" would be caught mislabeling their "beef" for extra profits. That would be far more interesting. And while they are at it, also check if these overpriced cows are getting the proper amount of beer, massages and what they snack on while listening to Mozart. Sounds nice on tv, but I am having my doubts about that a little bit.

    Can't remember on which channel, but I have seen the final episode, right here in Japan. Think it was during the New Years holidays. Must have been one of those rare instances then, that we weren't last. They've been airing it for years on NHK, AXN Mystery and Channel Ginga. Channel Ginga has been showing Poirot every week and starting August 3rd, they will be showing Poirot daily for the whole month. Don't watch that much tv, but Poirot, Joan Hickson's Miss Marple and Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes never ever seem to get boring.

    If you want to see the original Godzilla, Nihoneigasenmonchannel is currently showing 55 hours of Godzilla movies. I managed to watch a little bit and it was comically entertaining, but it failed to keep me riveted to my chair to say the least. I noticed some actors who were young and unknown then and who are now old(er) and well known. To me, that was about the only interesting thing. By the way, Godzilla 2014 is topping the box office charts here in Japan, so there is quite some interest in this film locally. I'll watch it, eventually.

    So, after he fled the country, Japan had this small time crook put on Interpol's most wanted list and then were sitting by the phone waiting for Interpol to call them? Because apparently, he could enter Japan again without anybody at immigration noticing.

    All we know for sure is that Vlad Put'n is a baaad guuuuy. Of course the Russians do. They have set their eyes on Ukraine or parts of Ukraine and it is just a matter of time now.They can' t rely on those hoodlum hicks callling themselves freedom fighters, who can't take over that godforsaken piece of real estate on their own. And even Putin knows by now that these goons can't be let near sophisticated weaponry either, for they would point it at everything that moves and think about the consequences only when sobering up again. So why not save some gas and shoot from your own territory. I just keep wondering about this Putin. What kind of image this fellow is trying to portray when he has his pictures taken while riding a bike (3-wheeler actually) or sitting astride horses and tame circus bears, bare chested no less? This man has serious mental issues. It's laughable at best. Can you imagine PM Abe or The Most Powerful Man On The Planet riding a circus animal bare chested? It stinks of megalomaniac delusions and the Russian people should get rid of this guy before it is too late. But alas, nationalism is blinding. If Putin really thinks he needs to portray himself as a tough fellow, he should try that stunt with a real wild bear, a grizzly or something and show the world what he is really made off.

    That wild theory you mention, refers to that nasty affair of flight KAL007. The Russian government wasn't exactly very forthcoming with handing over the flight recorders. Ok, it didn't took 10 years, but just a mere 9 years for Russia to come clean with what the rest of the planet already knew from day one, that they had more or less knowingly shot down a civilian airliner, murdering 269 innocent folks in the process, by finally handing over the empty flight recorders. Russia's then big boss, Andropov, initially wanted to deny the whole sordid affair. He probably thought, 007, hey I've seen that, that must have been them spies on a spy plane on a spying mission. As then and now, they don't give one hoot about it.

    On JT one can read comments from certain people, accusing other people as being easily duped and gullable. That's exactly what I thought when Putin tried to convince the folks back home, that annexing Crimea was justified, by having the Russian media circulating news that Russians living in Ukraine were being massacred. However, Russians actually living in the Crimea/Ukraine hadn't heard, nor seen and/or experienced any violence meted out to them. I saw on TV people being interviewed in Moscow. What? Russians are being killed in Ukraine? We can't have that. Putin, do something about it! And he did. After having finished decorating every single member of the Russian equivalent on the Hell's Angels for being good, patriotic hoodlum bums, Putin complied by creating this myth of "liberating" the Crimea from fascists and now trying the same in East Ukraine, with one result being another 298 innocent people being murdered. And then laying the blame on someone else. Duped and gullable indeed. What did he say again? Nobody should use this tragedy to further their own agenda. What a godforsaken hypocrite.

    And as for Ukrainian planes flying over Donetsk, Donetsk was and still is a part of Ukraine. These so called separatists are just hoodlums who couldn't hack it without the support they get from Putin. In the world of Putin, Ukraine is already Russian territory. He could do us all a favour by just getting his kicks by riding a tame circus bear bare chested.

    The flight recorder is not going to tell us anything else than how the plane was performing and the cockpit voice recorder will let us in on some colloquial conversation between the pilots perhaps, which then stops abruptly. That's it. Only from the wreckage, specialists might be able to determine how the plane was shot down, with what and from which direction and somehow I don't think that that will be possible or even allowed.

    Interesting notions, about those false accusations against Russia by America and their European puppet regimes. Disappointed that Obama and Merkel haven't beaten up or even shot any journalists and/or mere ordinary citizens yet for opposing their views.

    This whole melee going on in Ukraine is all Ukraine's own fault of course. And America's. The CIA was behind it too, albeit just for the heck of it. They helped to kick out a corrupt president, Putin's personal friend and friends are supposed to help each other in times of need, plus the prospect of having a neighbouring country joining the EU and possibly NATO would never have been tolerated by Russia. They had to swallow a recalcitrant Poland already, but they don't speak Russian, so they are of the hook for now. People like Putin are not going to lose sleep over a couple of hundred people shot out of the skies, it merely interferes a tad in their greater scheme of things. But they are near schezophrenic about having another western leaning country next door, which used to be their province no less! Putin has these delusions of grandeur, of returning Russia to whatever he thinks it once was and isn't anymore. Hope he isn't thinking about the Stalin era.

    Putin's plane was flying near flight MH17. Really? Was he on his way to the capital of The People's Republic of Donetsk? I very much doubt that, since even the Russian media thought this wouldn't fly and dispelled this little conspiracy theory.

    Yes, Russia is, for the Netherlands at least, an important trading partner, as long as we sing their tune. Just google that incident last year with that drunk Russian diplomat in The Hague. They didn't want our cheese and butter anymore, sniff, it was deemed not to be fit for even dogs to consume. And for good measure, a Dutch diplomat stationed in Moscow was roughed up. As a tit-for-tat so to speak, plus the complementary beating then. Only after we kissed Putin's butt till it turned pink, were the Netherlands once more their "important trading partner". Also interesting to note is that embassies in The Hague were flying their flags half mast out of respect for this plane disaster, except at the embassy of this important trading partner.

    If you only hobble up and down Ginza it might be just fine, most of the time, but as every driver knows, even if you yourself are observing the traffic rules, some of your fellow drivers might not. Anyway, if you have the presence of mind to tuck in your head when noticing the looming exhaust pipe or drive shaft of a dump truck, you might regret not having used a helmet. Not that it would matter much anymore then.

    Players like Robben constantly have to endure their legs being kicked and hacked at. Don't forget that Mexico's Hector Moreno, trying to tackle Robben, broke his own leg in the process.
