These celebs are worth hundreds of millions dollar, and they get media coverage for donating crayons and coloring book. Some are even worse. Kim Kardashian kept 90% of the earning from the Philippine charity. I wonder how much this campaign will actually donate!

China, Korea, Taiwan...all will claim. The reason? Historically, when earth didn't cool down, it was a part of their land. They just found that in their local wikipedia.

One man's freedom fighter is other man's terrorist. Ahn's act can easily be classified as hate crime. Ahn, also known as Thomas, who was actually a French speaking Catholic, planned and executed a cold blooded murder of Ito, a Buddhist General from Nihongo speaking Japanese. You can see it anyway you want!

Japan should ridicule this rather than confronting...make a ghost comics character named AJG...and let his ghost come to the dreams of the Chinese/Korean politicians so he can get his statue erected in places!

This is also so interesting...the Korean football fans have other agenda than watching the game every time! They must have meetings before going to the game! "What are we going to this time?" "Let's display a huge portrait that we have been preparing for past 2 months. We bought 300 tickets and paid 300 part timers to hold it during the game."

Japan should make a movie about how heinous this criminal was to kill Hirobumi Ito, who was a family man and gave his life protecting his responsibility which his country bestowed on him.

Great...Let them do that. We will continue visiting Yasukuni Shrine...Our one visit makes them more agitated than that.

Well...all agencies resort to tricks. Have you been offered tea in a police station in Japan? They will take the cup and record your finger print. They can not force you to give it, these are their easy way out.

What the Japanese electronics makers are failing to understand that, customers do not want to pay premium for "perfect" electronics that will last 10 years but will become obsolete in 2. I will not buy a 150,000 yen Japanese TV, which is not intelligent but will last 10 years. I will go and buy a 65,000 LG smart TV, which will probably not last as long. Technology is evolving fast. They can not just reinvent wheels and expect customers to pay premium.

If Yahoo is going to let sellers sell for free using their platform, both Rakuten and Amazon, who charges more than 15% fee for the selling item, will be facing trouble. Many stores use all three platform of Amazon, Rakuten and Yahoo. But it seems, from now, they can be at least 10% cheaper in Yahoo shopping. That will be good for the buyers.
