    Interesting replies!

    It seems there has been quite a bit of research done in this area. Personally, I'm inclined to agree with the same common points Gya and Maciamo pointed out, although I...
  2. Speaking of the jury system....

    Japan is finally set to get one in 2008. Up until now, they've never had one.


    Too bad, the jury system has gotta be one of the "worst best ideas" ever....
  3. Maciamo,

    I just got back online. Read the thread.

    All I can do is wish you good luck, and say I'm sorry I won't have a chance to visit you in Tokyo anymore! Regardless, hope to maybe catch up with you at...
  4. Poll: I'd run towards him and snatch his bag.

    uh...wait! No! That doesn't sound right...erm.....

    I meant to say, I'd knock his arse out, take his wallet, and run away giggling.





    :?
  5. Man, this conversation has gone all over the board....

    What really troubles me are the types of questions Japanese people ask foreigners. As Mikawa Ossan said, I'm sure some of these dumb questions are directed at making conversation. Then again, you...
  6. I do believe there is a logical reason for this. ...

    I do believe there is a logical reason for this. I've got quite abit to say on this topic, but I've got work now, so it'll have to wait until later tonight.

    Until then.....

    :sorry:
  7. Actually, I think you're missing the point. I...

    Actually, I think you're missing the point. I agree with Maciamo on this. Prime example: I recently started working at a Senior High School. On my first day, the principal introduced me to all my...
  8. One thing in Japan that annoys me to no end:

    the lack of privacy.

    Example:

    I'm sitting at my desk in the teacher's room at school, writing something on my computer. Students wander right up to my desk, stick their nose in front of me,...
  9. Wow, Maciamo! An interesting post. This is...

    Wow, Maciamo!

    An interesting post. This is bound to stir up something! I agree with you on much of what you said, and I have plenty of my own opinions too. I'll be back shortly with more to...

    Poll: You mentioned Star Trek! NOW YOU'VE DONE...

    You mentioned Star Trek! NOW YOU'VE DONE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :gun:

    (joke) :blush:


    8. You punch out trekkies who say "Death star my ***, I'd like to see those losers take out DS9".

    Poll: Nice post Glenn!

    I love Jedi the best, too. The battle of Endor gets me so pumped it's not even funny. All my buddies are Star Wars geeks like me. My best friend back home has the best call name ever; Landosystem!...

    Poll: My favorite Character is....

    Palpatine/Emperor.

    When you think about it, he's really the most important character after the Skywalkers. Not to mention he's a master manipulator, dark-side weilding bad-***. I was actually...
  13. Louder

    And I live in a small town in Wakayama, to boot.

    What gets me is the damn music they play all day long on the shopping street. It's the same awful, rehashed elevator music all week long. Combine...

  15. Good thread.

    Everyone who posts here should get rep points!

    Here's a good one: I used to be something of an artist. So, my senior year in high school the school had me and some of my fellow artists paint a...
  16. Point taken. I believe the number to be likely...

    Point taken. I believe the number to be likely more than 10 million as well. Sad, but not far-fetched at all. I've got a few copies of Japanese middle school history texts sitting around and I've...
  17. Whoops.

    Posted something and put my proverbial foot in mouth.



    Of course. I'm well aware of the circumstances, but it seems dubious to attribute all of the 10,000,000 civilian casualties just to...
  18. Good point. But surely all of China couldn't...

    Good point. But surely all of China couldn't have been united against Japan for all of those 12 years? There had to have been a few petty warlords who took advangtage of the situation. Enemies...
  19. Are you sure? Doesn't that number include deaths...

    Are you sure? Doesn't that number include deaths of Chinese killed by other Chinese in internal conflicts? Seems impossibly high for the Japanese alone to be responsible for those deaths.

    :?

    Yes, I'm allergic to ceder pollen, amongst other things.



    The million dollar question?

    "Do you have kafunsho in America?"


    :D

    Not to make this discussion even more bizarre...

    but several girls I know swear they've seen Japanese people with straight pubic hair. (In the onsen.) It took me a few drinks to get the courage to ask one of my Japanese girl friends, but...
  23. Poll: Oddly enough....

    my trouble have only been with the police. Why? I don't look suspicious. I look like Fred Savage meets Frodo Baggins.

    I've been asked for my bike registration several times, both in broad...

    I liked that sentence so much I wanted to post it again. I feel similar frustrations quite abit. As Maciamo noted, it's particularly disturbing when that treatment comes from people who know you...
