Advertisement

goo Ranking recently published a list of stuff people were surprised to learn kids could buy in post-war Japan, specifically the Showa Era, up to 1989.

Here is the closest kids these days can come to number 6, Kids’ Beer, or more correctly since it has recently been renamed, Kids’ Drink.

Mutton dressing as lamb

goo Ranking recently published a look at when people think older women overdo trying to look young.

I was going to add a photograph, but then I thought that the subject might not be too pleased to know that they had been tagged as mutton. Instead here’s an older woman with a lamb.

Peru - Peruvian woman and her baby lambs as pets.

Old geezers on Facebook

Let’s look at fish out of water (I include myself here!), the features of older men on Facebook and other SNS.

I think I manage to avoid all of the behaviours listed here, mainly due to avoiding being sociable on social networks. However, I do have various friends on Facebook who soon chuck in their own two cents at the merest hint of a political discussion.

Features of people who can’t get the job done

Following up on last week’s look at surprising features of people who get the job done, we have goo Ranking now looking at features of people who cannot get the job done.

Demographics

goo Rankings asked iBRIDGE’s Research Plus to conduct this survey, where between the 23rd and 27th of April 2015 500 members, 50:50 male and female, of their monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. No further demographics were given.

You will notice that the top feature is not being able to set a time limit, but this has no relation whatsoever to me posting this a day late…

I scored well on the other positive survey, so fortunately I don’t think too many in this survey apply to me.

I think this desk crosses the line from “productively messy” to “utter tip”.

Unsurprising surprising features of people good at their jobs

goo Ranking published a list of surprising features of people good at their jobs, but I think the top answers are only surprising to Western people in the sense that Japanese people rate them as surprising. (Sorry, that sentence is an utter mess and probably doesn’t make much sense!)

Demographics

goo Rankings asked iBRIDGE’s Research Plus to conduct this survey, where between the 7th and 10th of April 2015 500 members, 50:50 male and female, of their monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. No further demographics were given.

I think I rate rather well in many of these items, especially the first four, although whether or not I am actually any good at my job (within the scope of working in Japan) is debatable.

Things that happen in lifts

Today’s nonsense from goo Ranking is common lift (elevator) happenings.

I often do number 2 too, but my wife complains, so I’m glad to see that it’s not just me being thick!

Rather disappointingly, this didn’t feature in the list:

My life is over!

Today’s fun from goo Ranking is a look at what moments make Japanese think their life is over. Note that the answers include actual experiences and imagined but dreaded events.

Demographics

goo Rankings asked iBRIDGE’s Research Plus to conduct this survey, where between the 25th and 27th of March 2015 500 members, 50:50 male and female, of their monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. No further demographics were given.

I can relate to Q3 – I’ve got a number of secrets in my past that will stay there! As usual, there seems far more unfaithfulness-related answers than I feel is right!

Childhood memories of found dirty mags

Where “Blick am Abend” belongs.

This is perhaps an experience kids today will not have – perhaps the nearest will be finding an open proxy to get around a smartphone or school blocking program!

And I found mine in 1 and 4, since you ask.

Which acts should open the Tokyo Olympics?

There’s still five years to go, so no doubt this topic will appear again a good number of times, so here goes with the first look at what acts people want to see at the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony.

Demographics

goo Rankings asked iBRIDGE’s Research Plus to conduct this survey, where on the 17th of February 2015 500 members, 50:50 male and female, of their monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. No further demographics were given.

I cannot argue with the top two; Sakamoto will bring some class, and Southern All Stars are a great band for live events, but my personal choice is not there, perhaps due to them not being singers, the Yoshida Brothers:

And an appearance from World Order would not be amiss:

Who would you pick?

Totes delish scoff LOL: when schadenfreude tastes sweetest for Japanese

Much like English, Japanese has imported the German word for the joy in the misfortunes of other, but this survey from goo Research used the internet slang for this, 「メシウマwww」, approximately “totes delish scoff LOL!”, to find out what tales of woe Japanese take pleasure from hearing.

Mr. Schadenfreude by “Roger Hargreaves”

My little bit of schadenfreude is fed by following Buttcoin on reddit and reading the tales of woe regarding people’s losses with their internet funny money.
