    DarkKnight, that is an horrific thing to say, and I can only imagine that you are not smart enough to realize the ramifications of your statement

    That's the thing about facts however. They tend to get in the way of a good story, or what people want to believe about certain things. I wish things were different, but.... I've seen the results of similar surveys. Does that information apply in Japan? Don't know....

    Unfortunately he's right.

    The apathy that the Japanese have to vote speaks louder in a democracy than their enthusiastic protests

    Posted in: It's a denial of democracy if just that many protesters would be enough to decide the will of the nation. The number of voters in Japan is 100 million. The protesters in front of the Diet would be nothing in comparison.

    XP was relatively stable, but I can't recall how many times I needed to reinstall that system after it started grinding slowly after a few years of use... no it wasn't as good as 7 in my opinion.

    Windows Vista was an unmitigated disaster.

    As a long time Windows user, I can safely say that Windows 7 has been the most stable and functional.

    Technically Windows 8 was a further refinement - if it weren't for the god-awful Start screen.

    Windows 10 should be similar to Windows 7, but Microsoft is pushing to get this out the door in time.... that means it will likely be quite buggy when it arrives, but what I've seen holds promise. People looking to upgrade from 7 have a year to do so for free. My advice is that if you want system stability, wait until around May next year to make the switch.

    It's almost laughable that propaganda to get people to join the military, or at least hate a particular enemy, is being lauded as Oscar worthy. Just like Dark Zero Thirty... Just like the Hurt Locker...

    Islam is not something that you can appease. If you are nice to them and try to avoid offending, they will still come after you anyway.

    Just go to any Muslim majority country and talk with the minority Christian or other religious group. You have whole villages running religious apartheid (complete with signs), dividing the place up. The demoralized minority wouldn't and doesn't dare harass the Muslims, but they are persecuted regardless by baseless rumours threatening to burn their houses down. All the houses end up getting marked, passover style, into muslim/non-muslim, to the point where Christians hang Quranic verses on their wall to ward away threats.

    ... and I witnessed this in so-called "moderate" Indonesia.

    When there are no more Christians to persecute, then Muslims turn on themselves... calling each other apostates.

    So please world media, post more Mohammed cartoons. Nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

    Because the marketers use a numbers trick on people. For example, when something has 1000 MB - the packaging marketers call it 1 GB. But in computer terms, 1 GB is actually 1024 MB (digital means using the power of 2, y'see, 2 4 8 16 32 64 128 256 512 1024). Now do the same from KB to TB and so on and so on. Nifty trick, huh

    1GB = 1000MB, whereas the more technically correct 1GiB = 1024MB (the while gibibyte thing is a recent invention to avoid this issue)

    This lawsuit against Apple is peanuts compared to dealing with large enterprise storage vendors.

    Modern SAN systems do all sorts of useful things that further blur the lines beyond a simple issue of format overhead and OS installation. You have RAID levels in multi-drive configurations, parity groups, thin provisioning (essentially getting the system to promise more storage than it may not actually have), and then filesystem snapshots and virtual copies that use the thin provisioning.

    The large vendors have teams trying to explain how this all works to enterprise customers - and have it try and make business sense the next time they need to plunk down huge wads of cash to buy 20+ TB of disk space, while only able to use 10TB of it

    Once of the first accusations to fly from Japanese women is the standard "you must be drunk", or "you are a playboy", or insinuating that you are so sure of yourself, or have everything planned in advance for the date - anticipating on eventual success. In fact, the who "low ego" thing seems to be fairly common with Chinese women as well.

    In reality though, these women are unbearable themselves. They act predictably entitled and arrogant, while accusing of the same based on zero information. It's their skewed perception that is unfortunately their reality - and once the accusations start, they crash an otherwise pleasant interaction. You just have to walk away, because you can't get anywhere with them.

    Japan loves cosplay. Halloween is cosplay. Enough said.

    Although there was a huge mess on the streets on Shibuya come early morning that needed cleaning up. Lots of Japanese people felt shame because of that. It's not like it was in a controlled environment where people were being paid to clean the area up. It was in front of Shibuya businesses.

    This quaint notion that humans stay together in monogamous relationships forever, and that there is "someone for everyone" is a myth perpetuated by society.

    In reality, approximately 20% of the men mate with 80% of the women.

    It's not greed that is the issue. It has nothing to do with money and everything to do with the population growing and limited resources.

    Some people are going to miss out, because people breed what they cannot feed, and then get angry at people with money for not giving them free handouts. When they are given work, they always want more. This is their justification for looting the rich.

    LOL. Why on earth would you say that on your wedding day.

    Absolutely. A bit late to discover that he was set-up to be a slave to two women. She should have run away from the wedding.

    Husbands are guilty of many sins toward their wives, and are hated for many reasons.

    If they're guilty of not making enough money, not giving all of it to their wife, not doing what they are told, not spending time with their wife, or arguing too much, not saying "I love you" enough and being deliriously happy with their poor treatment, then they're guilty of trying to get away from their slave-driving wives.

    Dont get an anime boyfriend, get a real man,

    The problem is that "real men" have competing real girlfriends.

    I feel a little sorry for Japanese women. They want a guy rich, smart, and attractive to give them everything... and yet stupid enough to ignore the fact that there are lots of women out there to "play the field" with when you have that much attention coming towards you.

    That would mean for women to.... gasp.... treat men as real people and as friends, and not as brainwashed money-making slaves for women to manipulate.

    ...but once that happens,... there goes the neigborhood!

    Replace "anime girlfriend" with any other male hobby that absorbs his time, attention, and money, and women will still find reason to complain. It's not good enough that the man spends some of his time, attention and money on her. She wants ALL of it.... otherwise, what's the point of the relationship? ;)

    This comes as no surprise.

    I did a stint as as sysadmin at a RIKEN facility about ten years ago, and when it came time to empty the budget out, the people responsible bought a whole rack of computer servers that they didn't need... only to discover that the data centre didn't have enough electrical capacity to power them on. So they just sat there!

    Wish they gave me a pay rise instead, but they didn't, so I left...

    The win here for Abe is if he can spin this around and put China's claims over the Senkaku's in perspective.

    If Japan can show that it will follow the rule of law, China loses a few legs to stand on by claiming ownership over the islands. Japan can say "Well, take your case to the ICJ" knowing full well that China would fail to make a compelling case.

    Service is generally pretty crap in the US, and the gall of some of the service staff to DEMAND tips in the face of a bored, angry, and disinterested waitress/waiter/taxi driver is basically a slap in the face - or at least it feels that way to me.

    Best places for service stateside is at the upscale places where a service charge is included in the bill. Go figure.

    Well, that's one way the Chinese can encourage their citizens to buy Chinese. I'm pretty sure that trashing popular foreign brands is pretty underhanded though. The irony is of course, the multiple issues that Chinese products have. Tomes have been written about that.

    All I have to say is, that if you make women feel bad about looking sexy, they'll stop doing it, and you'll miss out.
