Comment on China Menaced by Exploding Refrigerator by ryusoma:
was the refrigerator in question ACTUALLY made by LG Electronics, or El-Jee, aka random Chinese ripoff factory stealing the name?
And before you make jokes, this sort of thing is ENTIRELY common in China, even still. Take the infamous NEC case in 2006- an entire fake factory distribution chain, run for several years by pirates.

Also- why is the refrigerator mostly intact, and the ROOM full of bricks from OUTSIDE, if the refrigerator EXPLODED? I dont’ see any bits of refrigerator outside on the patio at all. But I guess Chinese media are as stupid and gullible as any.

“even though I, the author have misgivings about the live action production; please stop trying to get it cancelled and just pay to go see it regardless to give me the benefit of the doubt okay?” The most passive aggressive cop-out ever written by an author. brilliant.
- 42% of Japanese “Otaku”:
It seems pretty obvious that the term ‘otaku’ has softened up in Japan, to become much the same as it is in the west- a fan or aficionado of a pop culture. After all, 30 years ago being a ‘Trekkie’ was a horrible, embarrassing thing wasn’t it? And today being a Star Trek or Star Wars fan is perfectly mainstream. Likewise it seems the Japanese ‘otaku’ is no longer the crazy OCD of Otaku no Video, 30 years past.
- “Otaku Fashion” Most Loathed by Japanese Women:
>>Clothes which are just too lively and individual, a bow-tie or a distinctive shirt..Misfitting clothes, trousers worn around the hips, “wagara” Japanese patterns, pointie shoes, unseasonable clothing, “B-kei” (hiphop) or “V-kei” (visual) fashion and styles associated with middle-aged or middle-school males.. So in other words, basically anything besides a salaryman’s suit and tie is unacceptable. Could you make it a little MORE obvious all you want is the money?

-I don’t know whether these tabloids are just digging dirt on AKB members purely for their own profit (as most western tabloids would too) or whether they’re deliberately attempting to damage the reputation and public opinion of AKB, but good for them because that seems to be what’s happening, leaving the management under fire from the public and mainstream media for their poor treatment of their trained animals err I mean idols.
