    I don`t know if the Kobe beef I had was bad or what... BUT when I had some... it was oddly...soft. Too soft. Disturbingly borderline lardy soft. I didn`t like it.

    I always thought that everyone in Japan wore those hats!

    LOOKS LIKE I`M RIGHT!

    By the way, don`t ever Google "japs" unless you have the filter on.

    btw, incase it was misunderstood. It was just that when you would come on base, you would see people wearing the traditional rice hats (I have no idea what the name is). We would always be at work before they came, and always came back after they were gone. But, our lawn would be mowed. I meant nothing deragatory, it just turned into a running thing for a while.

    The rich get richer and the poorer get the picture. How much decadence is enough, and why will the affluent pay now 65 dollars for 8 ounces for this flavorless meat, yet they wont give 15 dollars to charity to provide clean drinking water for keep thousands of children from dying of dysentary in Africa. Strange isn`t it.

    Pretty disturbing clip for so many reasons. It`s a shame that we have all these robots and applicances to do our work for us but instead of reaping the benefits in the form of free time we just create more useless jobs like massaging a cow for 8 hours a day.

    Dude, what the heck?

    We should have Kobe beef farms over here in the U.S. All these people complaining about lack of employment, etc... well I saw 6 different people massaging ONE cow, so why the heck don`t we bring them over here?

    Then you have more jobs for taking care of the cows, Kobe Beef is cheaper for rich Americans because it`s domestic, beer sales go up more and there`s more jobs at breweries, etc.

    American Raised Kobe goes for about $14 to $18 per pound. True Japanese Kobe is about $40 per pound imported. Japan the price of Kobe is close to $80 per pound. The young calf`s are raised on milk and beer and grow into high grade grains and beer usually feed in a trough. Each cow is messaged twice daily. The cow is killed Japan by sword with one swift blow to the neck in order to keep the animal as calm as possible in order to keep stress hormones from releasing into the beef at the time of the kill. Try Kurobuta Pork raised in the same manner of Kobe. It`s the veal of pork. :-P
