This is so stupid and inhumane on so many levels. And practically, Japan needs this type of kid who is bilingual in Japanese and Thai for future Asian-focused business. They should not be alienated against Japan. Can I adopt him to keep him here?

When I was in the US about 10 years ago, everyone was saying "narly", and 6 or 7 years ago it was "awesome". So how about "narly Japan" or "awesome Japan"?

Yes, but as soon as Trump becomes president, then the US will not be satisfied.

So Trump has given companies a way to get huge tax cuts. They just say they are going to move their factory to Mexico, and voila!!! A huuuuge tax cut!

Like the article says, who can afford to date? That is the main thing. On the bright side, at least these people are getting married. I wonder if they have children.

US consumers buying SUVs again is based on the idea that cheap gas is here to stay! But now OPEC seems to have gotten its act together and will limit production. So gas prices will climb again, and SUV owners will be paying sky high prices in no time.

Japan is becoming more like the US, where the 1% is absorbing more and more of the wealth created by workers, while the workers sink further into poverty. Thank you Koizumi. And people wonder why populism is rising, bringing you Trump.

@Patricia Yarrow In this case, the students and teacher were using "kin" as a term of endearment instead of "kun", the usual one. It is taken from "Anakin" from "Anakin Skywalder" of Star Wars, but is also part of a popular video game. Anyway, that is what the teacher is saying. True or not, I don't know.

NHK reports that the teacher claims they used "kin" as a term of endearment to each other in the class after the name of a video game hero (I forgot the name).

I hope it is still in tact when I retire in about 25 years. Or should I save all my money for old age and not contribute to boosting the economy?

MrBum, Thank you for the reminder. Totally gay Gokai only paid attention to Hard Gay, who was pretty unique (and maybe funny) at the time.

Razor Ramon was more funny as Hard Gay. I guess now he would have to play a fat Hard Gay. He'll appeal to chubby chasers (デブ線). I hope Trump doesn't see this.

Intelligence briefing? Maybe it is just me, but "Trump" and "intelligence" seem like a self-contradiction.

At first, Trump said that Japan paid nothing, and got a "free ride". You elected this guy as president? It is best for Japan to turn to China, like Hatoyama wanted.
