They also tell me on that section that Japanese women an Asian women in general don't like Asian men and only like white men. Is this all true? Or are the people on that section and stormfront just delusional white supremacists? Because I see on many parts of the net actual Halfie people who did live in Japan and they claim they they faced discrimination, and I have read on larger article websites also that the Japanese see Caucasian people as inferior and discriminate against them.....which kind of sounds like the exact opposite of what the white supremacist people on the culture section and the stormfront website tell me.

  • Why did Japanese people used to sleep on rugs instead of beds?

    Best answer: they're futons, not rugs. but i suppose they were and still are popular because japanese houses and apartments tend to be pretty small, so a futon makes the best use of the space because they can be folded and put away during the day whereas a bed is a pretty permanent piece of furniture that's difficult to... show more
    Best answer: they're futons, not rugs. but i suppose they were and still are popular because japanese houses and apartments tend to be pretty small, so a futon makes the best use of the space because they can be folded and put away during the day whereas a bed is a pretty permanent piece of furniture that's difficult to move. and in older homes, a bed frame could damage the tatami flooring due to the weight but a futon would not have that problem.
    nowadays, beds are more common as are more western style homes, but many people still use futons either out of preference or nostalgia

    Best answer: Two options.

    Option 1:

    Any commercial hardware store (Ace Hardware, True Value, Handyman, Home Depot, Wilcon) located either in malls or in major thoroughfares in the country.

    You will surely get high quality and original drill bits from these stores, but the markup on them will be substantial.

    Option 2:

    Binondo/Chinatown area.

    Prices will be significantly lower, but you will need to assess the quality and authenticity of what you’re buying.

    Personally, I’d go for option 1 especially if you’re just buying for personal use.

  • Since when japan started to get earthquakes?

    We are from California, he's in the Army and he has told me a few times that he wants to retire in the Philippines. I have never even been out of the country and I'm honestly scared to end up somewhere that is so different from everything I've ever known. He thinks the US is boring and he says the US dollar is worth like five times more there. Obviously retirement is many years away but he seems very set on this idea. Is this a stupid idea or is it something to embrace? I honestly don't feel very comfortable with it.

  • When I go to Japan will I be worshiped because I'm a black man?

    Best answer: A black guy I worked with was all excited about going to Japan on a business trip, looking forward to the cherry blossoms, the Geisha girls, the authentic Japanese cuisine, but he was abducted by Yakuza agents and taken to a Hibachi. This would have been well and good, but the problem was he was the main course.

    Best answer: Human waste is not used directly as fertilizer for crops now in Japan.
    In most of case,it is moved to sewage treatment facility through sewer system, and is treated. The output are clean water and sludge. (The following figure is showed by City Office of Dunbar, West Virginia. All of the cities in Japan use the same system.) 14% of sludge is used to fertilizer in Japan.
    The exceptions are the human waste of the peoples living in remote islands and mountain. They just discard the garbage and other human waste in the trash holes at vacant lot. The human waste is not used as fertilizer directly in this case, too.
