Yesterday i saw my daughters volleyball coach grab another player by the hair and yank her outside,Being going on for years but everyone justs goes "shoganai "It is sickening but when I mentioned it they said she is just like that.
A lot of people dont think it is wrong where as in western society it would be instant dismissal maybe even prosecution

can you imagine some bosuzoku screaming around the arena on their bikes drowning everything out with the noise.I'd pay to see that and it would be a side to Japan that people wouldnt know too well

Yeah I dislike Abe intensely and it was a copy of the queen and the James Bond thing in a japanese way.But it made alot of people around the world smile.I dont think it was for the cynical gaijin in japan audience.Having said that if it enables him to pull the wool over peoples eyes for even longer than he has up to now then it is a bit worryong.But it was just a bit of light hearted fun so everyone chill a bit

I had the misfortune of going to my daughter's (second grade JHS ) open school day and witnessing her english lesson.Not a word spoken in English by the teacher except what was in the textbook.My son in 5th grade comes home laughingabout the way he is taught english in elementary.Dumb songs and exagerrated reations to asking how are you?
Nothing will change.If you want a kid to speak English well send them on a home stay or private lessons.I taught French in Ireland and the japanese curriculum is just daft.Did the JET program 20 years ago and it hasnt seemed to have changed muc.
More moralising in the lessons than practical English.A complete waste of time

me too I was surprised they were blaming it on pot use.Feel like its a good smokescreen to take away from not locking up a nutter that said he was going to try and kill disabled people
