Posted in: The increase of 10,000-yen notes in circulation is a reflection of the growing sense of anxiety. See in context

Is Kumano another one of those "experts"? Just askin'.

So you ask a question. Then follow it with a statement saying you asked a question.

What does that even mean?

No way, man. When me and my buds all get together, we're still gonna call it "MR. Potato Head."

Posted in: Go To Travel campaign may partially resume after state of emergency lifted See in context

Alter the GoTo Campaign for travel only within prefectures. That way they support local hospitality businesses while somewhat limiting distant travel and spread.

Otherwise, this is stupidity happening all over again.

Posted in: Cherokee Nation asks Jeep to 'retire' name of SUV See in context

The more these Native American names disappears from baseball, football and product names, the more quickly these groups will be forgotten and fade into history. Often times they're depicted in a tough, rugged and positive way and keep their tribes and empires in the minds of the populace.

Posted in: What are some past TV shows that could no longer be aired because they would be considered politically incorrect? See in context

Almost everything and anything that was funny could no longer be shown today. The US and other countries struggling with PC bullying allowed the overly-sensitive minority-few to take the fun and humor out life and entertainment.

Posted in: Travel agency JTB to cut capital to become eligible for tax advantage See in context

What's going to happen when their capital goes back up to over 20 million dollars after the epidemic, which it inevitably will? Do they get to still be considered a medium/small sized company?

Posted in: Rising Sun removed from 'Street Fighter II' background in game’s latest rerelease See in context

It's been used by the Japanese military since Meiji. They shouldn't avoid using this cool looking symbol and flag. In fact, it's still being used by the J-military today.

More people feel threatened by the red PRC flag than any other. They should stop using that one before they stop using peaceful Japan's.

Posted in: Man gets out of taxi on Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge; then jumps to his death See in context

I drive across that bridge all the time it scares the hell out of me when I look down. The railing is really low so people can enjoy the spectacular view but for me it's frightening.

That's a pretty high fall. Serious guts to hurl yourself over that edge.

Posted in: Should Spotify payments go to artists you actually listen to? See in context

With all the money Spotify is making, they should pay out a much higher percentage to all the artists out of that pot. Without them, they wouldn't be making any money.

Artists would be happier and Spotify would still be making billions.

Posted in: Japanese companies shun blanket wage hikes amid coronavirus pain See in context

Nearly three quarters of Japanese firms have no plan to offer blanket base pay hikes at this year's shunto labor talks, with two thirds keeping wages flat.....

Quote from 2001, 2011, 2021.

Same recycled report every time. Hadn't read about a substantive pay increase since 1990.

Couldn't care less because I'm 100% against these Olympics anyway.

Not a single foreign person in the video above were of average weight or thinner. It's embarrassing to see so many overweight people as the new norm. It's unhealthy.

Posted in: LDP wants more women at meetings, but only if they don't talk: Nikai See in context

I think the headline here by JT is misleading.

They want to allow female observers in, then fine. But as observers, they're not expected to participate. That's the same with any occupation or setting.

Posted in: The best TV shows in Japan to study Japanese See in context

When I came to Japan, I kept the TV on all the time, even if I wasn't watching it, as background noise w/ Japanese constantly going into my ear. It helped my listening comp and pick up the rhythm of the language which is very important.

Weather reports (comes with accompanying pictures), kid shows, music shows (lot of the songs have subtitles as they're singing), and whatever you're really into - mine was movies and watched hundreds of J-movies.

Monday evening I was feeling and looking fresh as a daisy, then boom!, at 1:07am, I turned into rinkled Frankenstein w/ giant bags under my red itchy eyes w/ runny nose. This news story is pretty spot on. What a difference!
