  1. Poll: I would have to say when I first read the...

    I would have to say when I first read the question I immediately thought this is ridiculous. Looking through the arguments on this page (note, I skimmed and did not necessarily read intensely), I...

    I'm going to come right up and say that I hated The Departed. In my opinion, it did an injustice to the great work in all three films in the original Infernal Affairs trilogy. The lack of character...
  3. Interesting...

    One thing that's funny to notice is that The Economist has been publishing articles on the changing sarariiman for the past 10 years at least. And they keep saying "it's changing." Now, although...

    I want to learn so many languages - but I'm starting with Japanese (I lost my Spanish...I was fluent at one point). When I tell people I'm majoring in Asian Studies, they always say "you should...

    Have a great trip! I was offered to go this summer to teach (volunteering) at an elementary school in Huangxi - but my parents wanted me to work here and they played the guilt game: "It's your...

    Pork-barrell politics happen everywhere, especially America (it started in 1817 with John Calhoun). The seniority system is most pronounced in Japan (from my experience), though bossel makes it seem...

    Much of this lack-of-debate in the Diet relates to the group and rank mentality of Japanese society. The Diet forms a group, a frame as Chie Nakane would call it in Japanese Society (the book is...

    Nope, California :p, but I've driven through Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa....there really isn't anything there but corn and wheatfields. Haha

    hahahaha. That's one to add to the book of similes.

    I just read the article...I was shocked at some of the conclusions. I haven't spent much time in Japan (only 5 days) so I haven't been able to be inundated with the local population and the local...

    When I visited Japan I was actually surprised at how quiet it was. For example, take the subways, shinkansen and train. Even then the trains were full, I thought I was breaking the silence when I...

    I've wanted to learn Japanese for years! I was going to take it in high school, but then I moved and it wasn't offered at my new high school :(. I love learning languages - there are so many I want...

    I've had quite a few of the things listed up there. No whale, turtle (etc.), pheasant or smaller birds. I'm also missing out on horse, wild boar, camel, and rabbit - oh yes and kangaroo. But I...

    This was a long, but incredibly enlightening read. Chalmers Johnson's analysis of American imperialism and militarism was extremely astute. I couldn't have said it better myself (of course I...

    Interesting poll indeed. The options forget Japan's large influence and the camps in Southeast Asia. Chinese and Korean soldiers were not the only ones that suffered from camps. Many Australian,...

    Dont' forget about Heier's (sp?) bid on Maytag. If they acquire that company then it will also become a huge multinational firm. Surely many of China's educated are located outside the country, but...

    I remember reading this article when it was first published. It seems that this is the day and age for uncovering corporate corruption. There are so many companies that have lost CEOs or CFOs...
