    I think japantoday is mistaken in presuming the senior porn caters to and is consumed primarily by the elderly. :P

    Although it's perfectly possible to hit yourself upon the head with them, I remember a case years ago where someone was beaten senseless with a pair after trying to assist a girl who was being threatened/robbed.

    Yes I also have an "unlimited plan" from my mobile provider and it actually means max 7gb a month and I think 2-3gb per 24 hours. Never crossed my mind to watch a show on anything smaller than a 40" though :p

    CruisinJapanMar. 01, 2017 - 08:49AM JST I don't know how the guy messed up, but if this is a commercial model, the range on those drones is up to 5 kilometers so I don't buy the whole radio waves thing. I think the lesson here is have people leave the vicinity when flying drones, especially if there are overhead obstacles

    I don't think any countries but the US allow 5km range drones, it's capped at around 3 in the EU if I remember correctly. There are lots of things on a construction site that could interfere with radio though, but I guess when you bang into a crane it's easier to say the radio was acting up :p

    wtf? You want Mitsubishi to rebadge their Evo as a Nissan GTR? Some people just want to watch the world burn

    It's nearly always body fluids, I guess we can be grateful they didn't write what it was this time

    Physical media is dying abroad anyway, it's possible some anime fans like to buy DVDs, but streaming of some form is certainly how the majority watches this show. This will probably backfire when they hassle their licensing partner into releasing a dodgy dub.

    I think they said the warehouse has very windows so it's difficult to get water on the flames. Regarding the burning intensity, Askul is an office supplier and sells practically anything you can imagine of office and business equipment. The warehouse probably has tons of paper and flammable chemicals.

    Buddha and god? This is more religious mix and match than we're used to here, and we're used to a lot! Could this be a clever marketing for a movie release of "Saint Young Men"? (manga featuring jesus and buddha)

    pointofviewFeb. 03, 2017 - 10:42AM JST Great! They should also thank N. Americans for purchasing millions of Japanese cars, a trend that has been occurring for a few decades now. No sign of American cars in Japan though.

    People in other countries aren't buying american cars because they aren't very good. They're generally oversized, coarsely designed and not very economical to operate.

    Would be interesting to see how much of this money will ever, ever see a lyricist or composer, already the "administrative" expenses are up towards 90%, I'm amazed anyone bothers with writing music in Japan at all. Maybe this is why most pop music released by non-indie bands sounds like it was written by a herd of school children in lunch & recess, because it actually is.

    As far as I know the train does have a lever you must keep under tension or a button that needs pressing regularly or the locomotive's dead man's switch will halt the train. There's also a switch when passing light signals

    Unless you're crashing a senior charter trip to S.Korea or maybe Hawaii there are few reasons ever to use a japanese travel agent rather than just book tickets yourself. Do they still require you to scan a passport and send them and then send you a fat manilla envelope with all kinds of coupons and pamphlets for business they're paid to promote?

    StrangerlandFeb. 01, 2017 - 10:48AM JST You don't seem to understand the reasons for having a juvenile age in the law. A 10 year old can go out and kill someone, steal things, and many other crimes, or by your definition, 'perform most actions'.

    "Juvenile law" is for damage of property, theft and obnoxious behaviour and could easily be lowered to 15. Most ten year olds manage to go through their lives without murdering people. Killing someone isn't a "mistake" you make that can be forgiven, regardless of age. Shoplifting is another matter, but if you steal at 15 it should still go on your record.

    One of the things they do properly here, although I have an idea the numbers, once released, will be higher for 2016. There have been demographic changes in some rural towns I know of.

    Still too high. 15-16 is a better age, people are capable of performing most actions by that age and ought to take the responsibility for it.

    Some of these are amazing, especially the ones of Abe.
