Don’t play with your nuts on the Tokyo Metro

Don’t play with your nuts on the subway.

metro-manners-nov-2014
Check out the original Tokyo Metro manners poster.

Better yet are the posters in the northernmost big city of Japan, Sapporo. Way up in pseudo-Siberia, Sapporo’s subway system has posters that are better than the banal banners for Tokyo’s Metro Manners.

 

“Subway posters are better in Sapporo”

New Japanese prison is better than typical Japanese living conditions

According to Japanese postings on “2channel” offshoot, the new Asahikawa Prison is better than a typical Japanese net-citizen’s living conditions.


New Western-style private rooms with TV introduced for Asahikawa Prison’s aging inmates
Asahi.com | November 10, 2014 (gloriously goofy Google Translate)
Asahikawa Prison in Hokkaido, has introduced a private room with a bed for the inmates…which is the first in Japan’s prison system…Asahikawa Prison handles inmates sentenced more than 10 years…the prison accomdates many older inmates with recidivism issues. Considering the cold climate of the region and age of the inmates, the prison was remodeled with centrally-heated, Western-style, private rooms each with its own TV, and Western toilet and bed…continues…

(Not shown is a Western-style toilet by the door)


Ok, ok, now for the-rest-of-the-story…What is upsetting Japanese on 2channel (2ちゃんねる / ni channeru) is that the Asahikawa Prison cells are better than their NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) accommodations.
That is, the standard room that a otaku lives in Tokyo or Osaka is not insulated, have central heating, does not have its own toilet, no bed, and it is never as clean as these new prison cells. Some of the anonymous comments on 2channel include:

  • “I want my own flat-screen television and electric kettle.”
  • “Nowadays I live in a 3-mat [4.6sqm] flophouse room without windows–When can I move into that comfy cell?”
  • “Could I have a stylish studio apartment with three meals and a everything-is-free environment?
  • I’ll go as soon as the Internet is introduced

The general consensus of the otaku commenters was that Asahikawa Prison would be better place to live if only an Internet connection was offered.

Japanese trans love

One of the fun things about Japanese TV are the huge number of poorly-convincing trans-people featured on variety shows. One the least convincing these trans-entertainers, IKKO*, had a wardrobe malfunction recently.

Japanese scientists succeed in making true salarymen

Dobu-nezumi (溝ねずみ) = lit. ditch rat
Dobunezumi is rather rude Japanese slang for salarymen dressed in monotonously grey suits.

Japanese scientists succeed in making true ‘Dobunezumi’

little-transparent-salaryman
The reason I called these transparent mice “true salarymen” is that ideal state for a Japanese person is to melt into the crowd of other Japanese—to be “transparent.”
For the 25 years I worked in fetid bowels of corporate Japan, the standard joke among my Japanese office mates was:

Q: What do you call a salaryman with an opinion?
A: Unemployed.

Miss International Embarrassment

It’s that time of the year again for the Miss International bimbo-beauty pageant, which this year is being held on November 11th in Tokyo.
See the official photo gallery at: http://miss-international.org/eng/photo-gallery

"Miss Japan Lira Hongo parades during the national costume event…"

At least Miss Japan doesn’t have to wear a "national costume" embarrassment like Miss USA and Miss Nicaragua {snark , snark}.
