    The Germans have never kicked up a fuss ... This is the difference between Germans and Japanese, how they face up to history. The whole world knows that.”

    Yes, let's have China speak about Tibet and Tienanmen Square some as I know they haven't faced up to their own history. Pot, meet kettle.

    I haven't seen it on the news once, except here in print. He should be publicly reprimanded for his actions and his face across the TV so everybody knows what a disgrace he is to the uniform.

    This makes me sick to my stomach. Why did it also take this long to figure everything out?!?!

    Same goes for me. He and Michael Crichton were the two authors that really got me interested in reading back in high school. Thanks for opening me up to a great world with Jack Ryan. RIP.

    So, what are they taught again at the "driving centers" as they pay some 20Man plus for a license again??? Or, is this just a case of extreme stupidity?

    “The situation at Fukushima is changing everyday,” Tanaka said. “Fukushima Daiichi has various risks. The accident has yet to be settled down.”

    And yet they still let incompetent people run the show at TEPCO and within the gov't.

    “We express our concern at Japan’s constant expansion of its military equipment. This trend is worthy of high vigilance by Japan’s Asian neighbors and the international community,” China’s defense ministry told AFP."

    Chinese politicians remind me of 4 year old boys who don't bother thinking before speaking.

    "Aso's gaffe exposes Japanese ignorance of Jews"

    not just Jews, but all things related to WWII. They don't even know their own history - if you want proof, just read any of the history textbooks used in high schools here, whether A or B, it doesn't matter.

    It feels like Kono is one of the few politicians who has actually opened up a non-Monbukagakusho history textbook, read it, and understood it. I don't think anybody else ever has by their asinine comments.

    I don't have a problem with summers in Japan. Granted, it's very hot and humid, but just like it was back home for me before I came here. The hardest thing I have difficulty with is the air-conditioner being set at 28, 29, and 30 degrees. I can't work in an environment like that, and it's obvious that others can't either. I just wish people were more willing to turn it down (and leave it at) something like 25-26 degrees. Summer here is great and I love going to parks and the beach to enjoy it, but lets use the AC a little more!

    I love Shikoku. The drive from Matsuyama, then down along the Shimanto River to Kochi is just wonderful. It's such a relaxing and beautiful drive. One of my favorite rivers in Japan for sure. Some hidden gems along it for swimming pools, too. Once you get to Kochi there is some great surfing up and down the coast.

    If “JTI however does not believe that increasing the size of graphic health warnings to cover 85% of cigarette packaging is effective or proportionate,” then why should they care? Thailand is completely in their right to regulate the packaging of the products however they choose. Of course tobacco kills you. Any moron knows that, and people should have the right to choose whether they do/don't smoke. The size of the description on the pack is besides the point. I also hope Thailand kicks JT to the curb.

    @Wakarimasen, good point, it seems that here all it takes is going to a university with a decent reputation. I know first and foremost that most uni grads only have their grades looked at, and many of them have group interviews, which makes me wonder how well they're actually assessed by companies.
