I avoid doing business with Chinese from China like the plague. Why, because their word and handshake mean nothing. Charge their credit cards 100% and if they cancel they get nothing back. If they dont like it, they can buy trip cancellation insurance on their end.

The DRNK is going to self implode soon. I just hope that when it happens that it will not involve SK or Japan.

Oops it looks like the Supreme Being was asleep at the wheel when it planted a woman's consciousness into a man's body. I'm going to raise a glass of yakult at breakfast and make a toast or maybe burn some toast. In any case that man's life must be very complicated and difficult

Japanese women in the workplace can be very difficult these days. Having worked for a Japanese company in Japan and also in the USA I can attest that Japanese female co workers have an axe to grind even if you are innocent because a lot of pent up anger over how women have been treated for over a thousand of years. My recommendation is to ignore them, don't ask them to lunch and make zero physical or eye contact.

Disney should have some drag net system of eliminating these large amphibians from invading areas that naïve customers spend time. I lived in Florida for several years and you do not, I repeat do not go into any body of water that is fresh or brackish not even to water ski. There are also non native species like crocodiles, snakes and even piranha living in the waters of Florida. Florida should have a round up season and whoever turns in the biggest catches gets a whole lot of $$ and that will get rid of these dangerous animals. Alligators are native but companies like Disney can protect their customers from these predators.

Another example of Muslim hatred for the west. Send them back to their sandbox countries without the ability to legally renter any western country and if found reentering the west, lock them up ad throw away the key. If they hate the west so much then stay home and practice their religion there.

Lived here, been here, seen all the the messed up stuff here and this is just the tip of an iceberg. Japanese people have some serious wack job issues. We have a not so close japanese friend married to an American man and their home has stuff piled up on every flat surface anywhere in their entire home. I have never seen anything like this in my life. Husband is a porn addict too. Children are screwed up in the head. Total wack job family.

England according to my business associates has just turned the corner. First it was accepting Pakistani and Indians from their former colonies and permitting them to intergrate socially and politically into British society. Now the next step is a take over of British society and the national dish will be curry and rice. Another imperial master subjugated by their colonial subjects. Long live the king. Lol.

Good luck to that primate. He is a mean SOB and if the guy with the sedative dart gun had been any closer, his face would have been chewed off. The three phase power (for those of you that don't know electrical power) the three power lines on the top of the power pole carry what is called three phases of power to run equipment that requires three phase power unlike home appliances that use single phase with a ground like your rice cooker that has two flat prongs and a rounded ground wire. So long story short, they must have shut down the power in that area because if you grip at least two of the three thick electrical lines or their connections you will be electrocuted. If you don't believe me try it.

@anonymous jones. First of all I have used hawkeye as an online moniker since I was a kid using cb radios in the 70's and have been also on line the internet since around 1990 so grow up. Anyway for example if you were on the beach in Japan and were at the beach with your jwife and kids for the day then some Japanese or foreigner with tats and body piercings plunked themself next to you and tried to strike up a conversation, I would pick up my family and move because I dont want to be identified with them. Maybe that is prejudice but I have a life and career to support my family and don't give a damn about tat life.

I think tattoo's are low class and body piercings too. Personally I dont want to bathe or soak with people with them so it's fine if some onsens allow them and some say no but make separate areas for tat and non tat people. The next challenge to onsens is going to be the transgender issue.

Im sure the usa ranks below japan in an english proficiency test from what you hear when people speak on the streets. Lol. In Japan since it is an Isolated island culture there is little need to learn any foreign language to do your regular job or go about your daily life. Countries whose borders are touching have always had to use other languages to trade etc. I think starting kids off in kindergarten with short classes and when you are in high school your doing up to 90 minutes three times a week might do the trick

Das ist ein autobahn? Really 120 kph is a joking slow pace considering the Japanese Tomei for example is easily designed for 150 kph or more. The problem is not in the highway spped limit, it's in the ability of everyday Japanese drivers not being practiced at driving at those breath taking speeds. Lol to 120 kph.

Political correctness means nothing anymore, we are at war and the enemy has infiltrated and lives next door. Start profiling the obvious persons, investigate them, question them, deport them to a big Gitmo style camp on an island very far from any land mass.
