    Divorce should not be a stigma any more these days

    Right...It's hardly something that pushes you to the front of the class, though now, is it.

    In our "anything goes" world these days it seems that just about everything that shows a lack of forethought, judgement or morals is nobody's fault. Nobody is willing to take any blame for mistakes, and yet just about everyone who makes them demands the right to be forgiven.

    Divorce doesn't just happen on its own. People have to screw up first. Royally.

    The real origin of Hallowe'en gaining popularity in Japan can be found at TDL.

    This is no secret.

    What qualifies you to make 90% of what you write on this site? Offering an opinion to a gossip rag is hardly illegal. Where is your evidence that it is, in any case, or is that just your opinion? If you had read the article properly, you'd see that the psychiatrist obviously does have a good idea about the sociological factors at play here. Could it be that he, despite being a psychiatrist, has a background in sociology as well?

    You're hardly one to be making judgement calls here.

    Some posters here are taking this baseball thingy even more seriously than the players do. And yet they don't even see the irony...

    Green up the city to minimize the heat-island effect. Seriously. Trees. Please.

    The kid was putting bleach in her classmates' food well before her mother died.

    She is a sociopath, and no doubt was born this way.

    @zichi, @marcelito

    maybe you missed the part about evidence being necessary for indictment.


    there is no evidence for your statement regarding Japan INC and the justice system. there is evidence, however, that many Japanese harbor no illusions about who's best interests are, or are not, being upheld, so you're wrong there too.


    You would rather TEPCO to be foreign owned? Being a quasi-private Japanese firm is bad enough. Just because a French firm may be performing better on French soil means only that French laws are stricter. Being completely accountable only to foreign share-holders would be no less of a nightmare than what we have with it being owned by the Japanese government. it might even have been worse.

    this recommendation for indictment is far from meaningless. yes, there are major ongoing troubles at Daiiichi, and yes, it would be nice for everyone at fault to get their just desserts, but sometimes you have to take what you can get. one case at a time. otherwise you just start spouting meaningless hyberbole, like @Zichi.

    Drug addiction and the behavior it leads to can be far more barbaric than a quick death.

    One fewer idiots on rhe planet, and it was over in the blink of an eye. I'd say he got off light, and it's for the greater good.

    Japan is safer than Canada in my experience.

    I was attacked 3 times in Canada, once by a steroid-pumped a??hole, once by a pill-popping hoodlum, and once by a mugger.

    Japan? Nope.

    Well, I hope this at least makes you think.

    Hmm. Thinking about physical attributes in regards to a sport...

    Nope. No thinking necessary.

    Btw, where in the article is the intellectual superiority of the Japanese team insinuated? In case you're not familiar, the word "finesse" means skillful, not smart. The Ivory Coast player Drogba is the only one referred to as a "genius;" Honda and Kagawa are merely "imaginative."

    Let's now have an article on the lives of the people killed by death-row inmates.

    Oh, that's right, there's nothing to write about because they have no lives anymore.

    @iworld @sfjp330

    Russia needs Japanese investment and technology, just as China does, which is why China are actively stealing it.

    On the other hand, oil and raw materials are not sole possession of Russia. The US is now the largest fossil fuel producer in the world.

    Looked at from another angle, you could say that Russia signed the deal reluctantly because now they know that they can't dick-around their now biggest customer (China). They have played the gas card too often with Europe, and now the rest of the world has seen through them. Lumping themselves in with China is a double-edged sword.

    Clearly two double-dealers like Russia and China are going to be at each others throats more the closer and more dependent they become on each other.
