I doubt if listening is the right word. I wonder if the auditorium was half empty like it was when Kan addressed the U.N. General Assembly. Japanese leaders really need to get fluent in English. Nothing is more tiring than having to listen to an interpreter drone on for an hour, especially when the speaker has no charisma.

The guy back right was invited as an example of what can go wrong if you breed a human with a black leather highback chair.

anyone else find it funny that a meeting on environmental issues shows desks made out of freshly cut wood (pine if I am not mistaken)? Well at least they didn't paint them, so I guess they might be re-used and recycled afterwards...

The guy back right is one of the more intelligent fellows involved at this covention and is only displaying moderate symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder during the speech

looks like they have rather boring jobs,,, either that they are listening to some one elses conversation by mistake and are trying to stifle the laughter, that is why they are covering their mouths and the guy on the back left, he is almost smiling, where as the guy on the back right, he is like ,,which idiot let us listen to sesame street reruns of elmo instead of what we came here for,,,,,,or maybe i am just in need of coffee and having a weird moment,,,,,

bonword: "anyone else find it funny that a meeting on environmental issues shows desks made out of freshly cut wood"

Argh! You beat me to it. It would only be 'funnier' if the Japanese proudly declared they were made out of Amazon rainforest tree wood.

The look on their faces says one thing to me: it's lunchtime and they don't know what to have. Guy on the right is taking another look at the menu.

The guy at the right is looking up some gal's skirt on the balcony.
