    I hope for the Olympics, or just for the sake of better taste, that they repaint Tokyo Tower. The two-tone red and white just scream industrial pylon.

    It basically is a big pylon. The color is in compliance with air safety regulations. I think it's nice to see a bright burst of color in an otherwise gray urban landscape.

    @nakanoguy01 You don't think life in prison has it's own stresses?

    Where do these people get the idea that murder will be a good remedy for stress?

    Whatever happened to showing a little compassion? JR Tokai could easily absorb the cost. How much more have they spent on legal fees? I'm really surprised the wife hasn't passed already due to her age and the stress this has caused.

    I wonder if someone paid the Osaka cops to sit on their hands, or was it solely down to their ineptitude.

    You don't say. Thats cause Japanese groups dominate the music scene "in" Asia.

    NEWS FLASH...there are actual Asian people that have been born, and live **outside **Asia.

    No different than how all republicans, gun owners, Trump supporters are painted as bigots/racist living in a bubble by most posters in these JT forums.

    There's one huge difference...none of the posters in the JT forums are running for POTUS.

    @Wc626 People didn't bash Trump because of his stance on illegal immigration, although his idea of the wall on the Mexico/US border is preposterous. They bashed Trump because he generalized Mexican immigrants as a bunch of murderers and rapists. Then he went to say that all Muslims should be banned from entering the country. Deporting illegal immigrants is one thing, but painting a whole group of people negatively is an entirely different thing.

    I know lots of Asian people, who are not from Japan, that are quite familiar with Utada Hikaru.

    I didn't even know Ford was in Japan. I always just assumed that the very rare Ford I would see was a special import.

    It will be interesting to see if the autopsy brings up any signs of prior abuse.

    I just can't understand how the falling price of oil is having such a huge effect on the world economy. Shouldn't this make it cheaper to do almost everything? Drive, produce, make plastics etc. Sure there are sectors that would be affected, but I almost feel there is some form of collusion going on, but I don't understand who it is benefiting.

    I think slumping oil prices are more of a symptom of a slow or slowing global economy, rather than a cause. If your currency is heavily dependent on oil, like it is where I live, then it will have a huge impact on the price of imported goods.

    Countries with a responsible government that seek balanced budgets will most likely take a pass on hosting the Olympics. The days of the Olympics, in their current model, will soon be over.

    If actors and studios can lobby for nominations and wins, then do the awards really mean anything? I don't think so.

    I live in Canada and on the first major snow day of the season, traffic is terrible and lots of people are late. I can only imagine how bad it can be if snow days are less frequent. It's all relative, if you're not use to seeing snow, it can really mess up your day.

    Idle hands are the devil's workshop.

    They need a hobby.

    Maybe they can open up a tamagoyaki stand.

    Are the buildings sitting on these piles safe? What about the owners of the buildings that paid for proper piles? Seems to me that a future sale of any of these buildings would be very difficult if the piling history were known.

    Blackstar was just released on Friday. I'm sure the Bowie estate is quite pleased with the fact that CD sales will spike in the upcoming days and weeks. This was, afterall Bowie's farewell to his fans

    I always wonder how these types of crimes were uncovered. He must have upset someone important.
