The salarymen are probably accepting a lot of bloated expense due to their honour such as bloated appliance repair bills, neighbour charges,....

Poor people can held indefinitely in US Prisons- police set the bail deliberately too high to keep an accused poor person there. Poor people know that- that's why there are so many black people who resist arrest.

Just a continuation of the contempt that sushi chefs show for their customers- you should be able add the amount the wasabi to your own taste- chef 101 allow the customer to tailor to their tastes as much as possible.

Hillary Clinton never admits to any of her significant deliberate actions that caused harm to the USA while acting in office such as the private email server, Bengazi- Clinton is an "experienced" politician. Trump has never been in office so admitting to "mistakes" or deliberate actions is not relevant. Saying crazy stuff does not compare to providing access to the Russia for US secrets. It actually doesn't matter to Islamic recruiters what happens or is spoken in the US- the whole idea of Western freedom is AntiMuslim to them.

Its not sensible for candidates to come with clear action plan- they are not super-geniuses. Deciding things now limits the possibilities for sensible actions to be decided with resources of the government and the input of many citizens. The fact that Trump only wants to the law to have force in immigration is the most sensible thing he has thought. If you want illegal immigrates to be citizens then the citizen law really means nothing.

Obama could stop blowing money on green nonsense but he like giving money to the rich. Clinton will do the same. Democrats have betrayed the working poor- Obamacare is a disaster for them.

Why not cozy up to Russia- it is less bad than China who keeps competently stealing. People get it wrong that it is just an idea with Islam- Islam is so based on having a state and hierarchy just look at their bow Mecca not god.

Would Biden why The US keeps North Korea going given its isolated from China now- The reason is the US favours murderous dictators as long they don't anything outside some limits. Biden loves the Kim 2. Obama absolutely wants to emulate dictators. Clinton would be a disaster for the working class with her insane economy destroying climate change policies- there won't be an energy grid after she gets through with it.

A mago himo is an opportunity for freedom for a toddler- much greater than being being held by hand. Hand to hand is bad for both parents who have bend over and children who are restricted greatly plus their arms are put at awkward angles. Japan is a country of mothers, who love Dako Himo sling, which is a tight cage for babies and baby cars (prams) which are nearly as bad. Japanese mothers hate their children having any freedom which a mago himo gives. "Treated like animals"- you mean like dogs and occasionally cats who are a part of your family. Such a comment says something bad about their regard for their family members.

Who certifies the vast majority of ramen shops when you are guaranteed tasteless "plastic" gyoza and some really terrible pork slices. Japanese line up down the straight for a food nazi ramenya with tasteless large quantity ramen in a hovel restaurant. Let alone all the awful sushiyas - mostly 100 yen. Its clear to me that Japanese chefs never taste their food whereas a top chef in the West would taste uncooked, partly cooked and cooked food to check its quality. What happens when one of these certified foreign chef produce ghastly food like the home grown stuff.

Making Pedophilia pictures illegal is bad for children- making taboo means they can't draw what they experienced and also compels people leaning that way to only choose real children not pure fantasies.

My wife tried to get a refund at Aeon with 3 staff member- none could do it- They had to get the manager to handle it. Japan is land of buffet and multiple dish lunch meals- which are sizeable.
These responses are probably true Japanese response- they act overseas in sleepwalker mode where they compare the traditional sweets and teas with mass-produced foods- not with equivalent products, compare traditional meals with common foods not sophisticated foods and similar. I love the foreign clerks can't calculate the change compare to country with auto-change producing machines and many errors in charging and they have to scan every item- as little as 10 yen items.

Paternity legal suits are just invading of privacy as DNA tests. People asking you impertinently are the father for inheritance? None of your business. The whole thing of paternity is such a load of nonsense- if you act as the father you are the father.

Good chance to force them to stop all their social events- all the BS designed to ingratiate themselves with Japanese society- fake samarai without an ounce of honour.

They can probably forward all mail but that won't help as the previous address will get a notification that the mail is being forwarded - they can't forward just the spouse's mail. The husband can with one phone call probably get the new address and stop the forwarding. Its not designed for this purpose.

Most animals- cows, pigs, chickens are killed quickly to avoid suffering that reduces the quality of the meat- preferably head shot. Fish are captured whole and then killed- their simple nervous system reduces their suffering. Its just not possible to do with whales and other sea mammals. The sea is too difficult to survey precisely to spot their moving heads for a head shot and they are too big to capture whole so the whole process of whaling is extremely cruel to a sea mammal.

Japan accepts a lot more than 10 refugees- they just aren't classified as refugees. Nearly every single Chinese immigrant is a refugee- its a country that has declared one seventh of its population as enemies- Falun Gong practitioners, minorities and religious people. Its a waste to give to UNCR - its such a corrupt organisation with expensive buildings and high priced personnel. Sure they should work on their acceptance of "foreigners" by working with Japanese on the cultural development but laws mean nothing everywhere- things only changed in the 1960's US when people rejected racism.

Nuclear power is not a failed experiment- the reactors mostly handled the situation. Given thorough proper the training even the eventual disaster could have been avoided by releasing the hydrogen gas to avoid explosion- part of its design. The failure of the executives to not properly consider the Tsunami risk was part of it- but if they go further back than the two year ago study then they can find tons more evidence of negligence of them and regulators - will a Japanese court consider that who knows- judges in every country are devoid of logic.

Spray wand in the basin- no this traditional sort of house does not have that on any level.
There are apartments where the bath, toilet etc is just jammed so you can't easily use at the same time.
Can spray your water everywhere- if you want more mould. Only our bath area is tiled. Melanite and fibre board in other areas- don't think they'd last long if you sprayed water everywhere. Our bath is sophisticated but doesn't have 7&8- maybe an option that isn't enabled.
12- definitely not- always hang outside or inside our living room if it rains.
9- is good but then its small and has annoying protuberances that Western bath designers equally fail with having taps.
This should be titled some possibly good features of a great deal of Japanese bathrooms.
