    Good guys are always willing to go the extra length to keep the women happy!

    Did find myself in a women's only carriage before I realised it. Remained next to the door, and changed at the following station but no one seem to actually notice me?

    So a white guy, who dominates these posts states that non whites don't have any major issues with racism? I guess you would need to have direct experience to able to even attempt to answer that question.

    I sincerely do.

    I seriously doubt that unless you are black yourself. It would be the same if you said you knew what female sexism is like or what its like to be a rape victim. Back in the UK I have many black friends for many many years and I also have two black daughters so I know the racism they experience every single day of their lives. But in the morning when I look into the mirror I'm a white male so I also know my day will be different than my black friends and my daughters.

    According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, between 1999-2011, 2151 whites were shot dead by cops, and 1130 blacks. Since the white population is about 63% of the national population and blacks 12%, therefore per capita! more blacks are killed by cops than whites. For more whites it would have to be more than 5,000 deaths to be more than blacks.

    More Blacks commit crimes and more are incarcerated. Every stat shows that.

    Your generalizing is in fact incorrect. Like many white people, you probably believe whites commit crimes but blacks are criminals.

    More blacks than whites are stopped or pulled over by cops than whites. More blacks, per capita are in prisons than whites.

    As I have outlined the reason as to why that is. It's NOT because of color.

    More blacks than whites are given prison sentences for the same crimes committed by both races.

    You make it seem like Americans hate Blacks and there is just NO way that Blacks can ever make it because there is no hope and there is no way that Blacks can ever achieve or amount to anything in the US.

    That's just more of your conjecture because I have never stated that but you are fond of saying people said stuff when they didn't? For your reference in America I know several doctors, lawyers and professors at uni's and one who is even a Jesuit priest and astronomer.

    Asians come and make money all the time and they don't complain or make excuses. Has nothing to do with Fox, but hey...everyone needs a scapegoat.

    I know several American Asians and even more back in the UK, they wouldn't agree with your opinion.

    We arestill waiting for the promised wifi which was suppose to be built into vending machines.

    There are more than 2.7 million vending machines, or about one vending machine per 55 people. America has 46% of the global vending machines, Europe 31% and Japan 23%. But it seems like Japan has more than any other country. On average a single vending machines earns more than ¥20,000 profit per month, so ten of them would give you a nice monthly sum.

    The vending machines use 6,800 gigawatts hours per year, or 6,800,000,000kWh, or to put it into some perspective, that would be enough electricity to power about 5.4 million homes. http://criticality.co/japanese-vending-machines-big-energy-hogs/

    I guess if you use Faux News for facts you'll be wrong with them.

    Well except as someone has pointed out time and again the majority owner of TEPCO is the government. So the government paying and TEPCO paying are mostly the same thing.

    Except the government only owns 51% of the worthless stock but is paying 100% of the costs of the nuclear disaster?

    A review of the nuclear liability law is needed because the sum of |120 billion for a nuclear accident is way too low when eventually the cost of the nuclear disaster will exceed ¥50 trillion.

    You don't need to be black to have no faith in the justice system.

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), 2,266,800 adults were incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at year-end 2011 – about 0.7% of adults in the U.S. resident population. Additionally, 4,814,200 adults at year-end 2011 were on probation or on parole.

    Back in my school days we still used wooden slide rules then the pocket calculator was invented which in some quarters, the teachers and educators generated waves of opposition and how the calculator would diminish the exam standards. For a few years they were allowed in the classroom but banned from exams but that too eventually ended. Still got my wooden slide rule, somewhere? The kids today seem smarter than what I remember.

    The costs of monitoring the health of all the 2 million Fukushima citizens for the next 30 years, which includes monitoring children for thyroid cancer will be paid by the prefecture government who will request the funds from the central government. Nothing will be paid by TEPCO unless the prefecture government decides to make a claim against TEPCO. All the monitoring programs, including the children are voluntary ones.

    Meanwhile TEPCO get more public money,

    Today, we have received 17.5 billion yen from the Nuclear Damage Compensation and Decommissioning Facilitation Corporation (hereafter NDF) based on the revised Special Business Plan (New Comprehensive Special Business Plan) approved on August 8, 2014. http://www.tepco.co.jp/en/press/corp-com/release/2014/1240945_5892.html

    As of today, the amount paid out to evacuees for personal and property compensation stands at ¥4.2 trillion. http://www.tepco.co.jp/en/comp/images/jisseki-e.pdf

    The culpability of TEPCO may be analogized thus - some moron decided to set up a factory right next to your residence. It emits a certain amount of noise and chemical pollution which has a minor deleterious effect on your life expectancy. You move and kill yourself over it. How much money does your death deserve?

    Except when TEPCO built the Fukushima NPP just like every community with a NPP, TEPCO, the government and the whole of the nuclear village assured those people living in the communities that the atomic plants they would build would be safe and the local communities had nothing to fear and even paid bribe money to ensure the atomic plants could be built?

    It's pornography - like Hefner's Playboy nudes. . . . . .Nothing artistic about it.

    Guess one man's porn is another man's art?

    Porno can be art too and here in Japan there's a long history of it like Shunga? http://www.ukiyoe-gallery.com/gallery9.htm

    Last year there was a Shunga exhibition at the London British Museum http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/past_exhibitions/2013/shunga.aspx

    Yesterday they had woodblock printing, today we photo's and video.

    He will also receive compensation for the loss of his property which will be another 60 million yen plus. All the compensation payments will be paid by the taxpayer. There are more than 5 million claims against TEPCO but tens of thousands of the nuclear refugee's still haven't received any leaving them in a limbo world. can't go home, can't go forward!

    The eventual cost of the nuclear disaster will be more than ¥50 trillion.
