  1. Does Guam count? As much as I want to see other parts of America, I don't want to be finger printer/DNA taken. Also my future travel plans would interfere with me ever going to America (again... Guam) You may not like my generalization, but American media is doing nothing to change my impression.
  2. Spook if you told me to "calm down" or "you have a bee in your bonnet" in real life I would tell you to 'suck my left nut' it has nothing to do with "Stirring shit on the Internet" The violence the is pervasive in American society is due to the nature of Americans themselves. Even the the media human life means nothing, they want people dead for the slightest of crimes. Also you have the showboating for how sad that they are for "the families" "the children". I put more value to human life than sending the families my "vibes". Yeah, I am the prick here.
  3. How am I stirring shit with you? You are the one who initially addressed me.
  4. samurai Oklahoma City bombing wasn't at at school. So those people families don't get as much condolences.
  5. Yes ger if you search soy and estrogen on google you are looking at a million hits. only 120,000 for tofu and estrogen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soybean#Soy_controversy Phytoestrogen in men Because of the phytoestrogen content, some studies indicate that there is a correlation between a soybean-rich diet and a decrease in the level of testosterone in men, although these findings are controversial.[30][31][32] A study carried out at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast linked soy to male infertility, including damage of reproductive capability already caused during
  6. Bushpig, if I knew him or not it still doesn't sound sincere. Condolences, my sympathies, etc., are words that convey sincerity.
  7. Bushpig I know what you are getting at. But saying ++++vibes++++ doesn't even sound remotely sincere. I am just insensitive to everybody clambering post the condolences to sensational news, as opposed to opposing why this shit happens in the first place.
  8. You are ****ing weak willed. If you are going to say something have the balls to say it. Where are all your pleas to the families of the 50,000 of people who get killed in America each year. Or the 600,000 Iraqis.
  9. "like that after an incident of this nature." An incident of this nature happens almost every year in American. Paying lip service to the "families" doesn't ever stop it.
  10. That is sick I hate tofu. It give you cancer and turns you into a woman.
  11. ++++vibes++++ to their familes and friends I am sure that their families and friends are avid readers of snowjapan, to feel your vibes.
  12. Although I dont belive you should modify you actions to stop ignorant people. I found the best thing is to wear sunglasses. Nobody seems to stare at you when you wear then because they cant intimidate you, and you have a certain amount of control.
  13. daver yes what I said is a bit disjointed. There are a lot of preconceived ideas about Japanese salary men being perverts, Japanese men are effeminate, Japanese men are _____, but with any population I would guess you pretty much get an even distribution of "perverts". If a woman is grabbed by the arse in a pub in the UK , she will turn around slap him in the face, laugh with her girlfriends, embarrass the guy enough so he doesn't try it on again. I would bet that if the same woman came to Japan she would have far less chance of being groped in Japan. But when it does happen in Jap
  14. Yes but if you want to prove you did the work so they cant contest it, it is best to get at least one item of something you worked on sent through registered post so you can back up your claims. Being credited actually means more than money because it has career value.
  15. Last years winter equipment is usually sold at the start of the next season. They often have huge sales and usually sell say the first 100 pair of skis are only 10,000.
  16. The new tower is Tokyo Mode Gakuen Cocoon http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=45855 Maybe I am being overly picky. But you go from fantastic places around central Tokyo to the grot that is known as Hibiya
  17. The do have some of the best, even there is a very exciting new building being built very quickly in Shinjuku and I love watching it take shape. But a constant progression with out influence from the rest of the world, I doubt it. 2 pieces of Archecture that would of made Japan stand out was the millenium tower and another tower that was to be built half underground. ( I forget the name) were scrapped. The new Tokyo tower is gawd awful ugly pretty, much like the old one. Just my opinion though.
  18. For me I have a nice trip planed out. I am going to visit 3 active Volcanoes in the 2 long weekends we have. Surfing on black sand. Photograph 2 calderas and a firefield.
  19. Bobby you are talking about Adenoids. Its pretty common in Europe to have them removed, for children who have congestion problems. Same ear grommets.
  20. "Returning home last year, Sharon is now living in London and working as a writer for a business magazine. The news of Lindsay Hawker's death has inevitably brought her chilling memories flooding back." A writer... I missed this line first time round, I was wondering why her story was so coached. "blinded with fear" "adrenaline coursing through my veins" She is not even a very original writer. I much a Japan pisses me off, its far more dangerous to walk the streets of the UK after 12 than anywhere in Japan. The biggest complainers about sex in Japan is women who cant get any a
  21. FRANK RYAN, I am so with you on the houses thing. I like old straw houses, but I think sometimes that Japanese revere their own culture so much they forget to have a renaissance once in a while. Wood block printing is good, but there are serious gaps in the evolution of art and architecture here. Toilet culture in Japan also gets to me. How is it acceptable for a cleaning lady to come in and take a look at my junk? Why do some mens urinals on the train actually have a glass door. Why do public toilets in the park have no barrier to see you taking a piss? Park design, everything n
  22. Maybe Soccor is like Jai Alai. Except Jai Alai is prety bad asses.
  23. Basically its to play "back up" games. Most of the people who hacked the PSP in the first place were Japanese. Despite piracy never happens in Japan. And Japan doesn't "steal our copy-rights" Quote from Gaijin Ura Hanzai File.
