    2: When in Rome, you need to act like Romans. If you are in UK, you pay BBC via tax. Here you pay via subscription. Deal with it.

    60% of Japanese don't pay, so why should we non-Japanese? That's what I told the NHK guy. I'll pay after the locals do too

    @Piotr

    Homosexuality is a learned behavior

    Did you learn how to be heterosexual?

    Unstable relationships based on sex, multiple partners, sexually transmitted diseases. People divorce more often nowadays, and marriage itself means next to nothing. People don't even think about having a stable relationship and even plan breaking up

    You seem to be only blaming gays for some general human failings. Can't you understand we are all the same. Some gays have unstable relationships just like some straights do. Some have multiple partners just like straights. Some people like "kinky" sex whether they are gay or straight, some don't like it at all. WE ARE ALL HUMANS with our myriad variations. Please don't paint everyone with the same brush. It's impossible to do with any group of people

    Fees are necessary to pick up trash, develop and maintain mountain toilets, pay for medical supplies and personnel at stations along the way and general maintenance of the trails.

    Currently the above are taken care of by volunteers, and payments from the surrounding prefectures, as well as some part paid for by the lodging companies

    You can probably play pachinko all day and not lose more than 50,000 yen. The same amount can be lost in the spin of a wheel or the turn of a card in a casino.

    Evidently you haven't played pachinko much have you? It is VERY easy to lose 50,000 in one day, in fact within the space of a few hours if you are stubborn and get sucked into playing a machine that doesn't payout they particular day.

    Exactly, but I've been to Vegas watching some high roller baccarat where they bet $20,000/HAND!! Of course that won't affect "normal" people since most don't have that kind of money to throw around, but the point is that it's so easy to lose more money in a casino than at pachinko. BTW is there any limit to bet size at the horses or keirin, boat races?

    1 standardized test is fine if its just 1 aspect of admissions. When I went to Uni in the US the SAT ( only math and English) was 1/3 of consideration. Another 1/3 was high school grades, last 1/3 was extracurricular and essay

    Next time that you go out with friends, ask how many are accepting of this. Nobody will raise their hands

    I don't know anyone NOT accepting. You obviously hang out with a prejudiced group. Just mind your own business and stop interfering with other people's personal lives thank you very much

    When the Yen was strong Apple lowered the price of its apps from ¥105/$ to ¥85/$. I guess we might expect a reversal in the near future, but yes it DOES change both ways

    Changing article 9 is something that certainly can be up for discussion in my opinion, but article 96 should absolutely be left untouched.

    She is an empty air head of a talking personality and without any real depth of character or ability, another example of American shallow culture being exported because she is a visible face on the media wheel

    I suppose you only know her from The View, not her extensive career in journalism and broadcasting. I've never seen The View, having lived in Japan for ages, but I also suppose you are not the target audience for it-a woman. It's like saying football has no skill involved just because you don't like it. To each his own, but no need to rip or denigrate-sheesh!

    People who say civil unions are the same as marriage so why can't we just call it that ,don't understand the legal ramifications of the word "marriage". "Marriage" comes with literally hundreds of legal rights, benefits and responsibilities. Unless you are going to change the wording of every one of these to include "civil marriage" it's simply not the same. Having blacks sit at the back of the bus is not equal rights, nor is civil marriage

    Mark G, K. Hawaii, ebisen, Chin4sailor; you can avoid going to Disney if you like, that's so trivial, but don't block 2 people who are in love want to spend their lives together with the same rights as everyone else.

    Mark G, civil unions are so far removed from equal rights. There are over 1000 laws in the USA that only apply to married couples, not those in civil unions. For example, a straight American man can marry a "mail order bride" and bring her to the States with a green card, but a gay man can't bring his foreign partner to the USA no matter how long their relationship. It's good to see Disney and other American companies, politicians, people realize that 2 people in love are the same, no matter the make up of the couple and deserve to be treated equally

    VPN tunnelbear $50/year or $5/month, then subscribe to Netflix with US or UK account. Fantastic. Both have free trials so u can test out the speed. I can watch Netflix now on my iDevice or Mac/pc with no lag whatsoever. I stopped downloading completely

    I remember the initial reports. The actions did NOT all take place in their residence.

    "happened in a diplomatic residence so it happened in Japan. "

    The police should follow the example of the US Navy in Japan and ban all drinking after 10pm. Give them a curfew too, then crime will be reduced by the looks of things

    Forget about the test conditions, I have to send my full results to my company head office. I think it's none of their business. Yes they pay, but I'd rather pay and keep it private

    Hmm other 2 guys were on gay chat lines. Not entirely innocent themselves. Who can tell the difference between a 15 and 17 year old? Sounds like a money/attention grab by them

    @ubikwit. Civil unions do not suffice, since there are hundreds of laws and benefits given to "married" couples only. (US case). If those laws were all changed to say "for those married or in civil unions", then yes, civil unions would suffice, but they aren't.
