I saw the ads on the subway about it last year. There were several (maybe 3) names being considered. This was the most stupid sounding one to a native English speaker.

Posted in: Windows 7 strong, but don't pay to upgrade See in context

the fact that os x uses the open source world and contributes to it is one of the biggest reasons for the ease of use, stability and security that makes it desirable.

For sure. But why pay a lot of money for that stability and security when you can have it for free?

Love how people always talk about macs being more expensive. A comparable equipped dell is just about the same price as a mac.

Mmm. Last time I visited the Apple store, the prices made me dizzy. For a Dell, chances are they also charge a premium for their brand and advertising, just like Mac.

You can buy a good quality no-brand PC, or build one yourself, the same hardware quality or better than a Mac, and put a very good, free, stable OS on it, with looots of software available. After doing that, paying the price for a Mac doesn't make sense to me.

Buy a Mac. Yeah, yeah, they are more expensive (ooh!). You can buy a Benz or a Hyundai too but...

But what if you were paying for a Benz badge stuck on a Hyundai?

The "inner workings" of Mac OS are a collection of (mostly free) Unix family software packages. It just has a pretty user interface on top.

And Mac adopted the same hardware architecture as PCs quite a few years ago.

I'm not saying Macs are rubbish, I'm just saying everyone should look closer, instead of praising Macs for being special and different. They ain't. But they are extremely expensive for what you get.

Has anyone ever noticed that the Japanese women have particularly nice skin?

Mmmmm nope. I really don't agree. Once you get up close and take off all the make-up, it's usually not that nice.

The nicest skin I have ever seen was a Korean girl. Smooth as a baby's bum and whiter than my pasty gaijin self.

Typical gaijin reaction to something they are unaccustomed to. If you don't like azuki, then don't buy it.

Doubt it. I know a lot of Japanese people that don't like Azuki. They won't be buying it either.

and wondering what may happen well, you will ask him leading questions trying to judge his annual income and what percentage of that you may expect to take over when you give up your 'singing/DJ career' to have his kids. Then you will decide whether or not to put out.

Mwahahaha. So true. If only they knew we are already wise to their game.

hollywood1:

Is our marriage contract enforceable in Japan or can I marry another Japanese woman in Japan? In my opinion the answer is yes

Yes, your marriage contract is enforceable in Japan. No, you cannot legally marry another Japanese woman.

Why do people keep assuming that marriage is only binding in a single country?

Can you marry a woman in the U.S., go across to Canada and marry another? No.

My mum has been making this kind of stuff for 40 years. 100 hour boiled broccoli, 100 hour boiled cabbage, 100 hour roast beef. I think everything she puts in the oven stays there that long.

Flyingfish:

not the case you dont need the permission of both parents to take kids somewhere.. remember they are not divorced.

Seesh. Come on, dude, think about it. A divorce in one country is legal in all countries. Same goes for marriages...

Do you really think this whole thing would be happening if they were not legally divorced in Japan? NO!!

Flyingfish:

spudman exactly, this is an illegal arrest. hes japanese-hes not divorced from his wife in japan hes the father-what grounds are they arresting him on ..

Ok, fourth time I've written this today. But I'm gonna write it again because it's really important that people understand this.

You only need to divorce ONCE in ONE country for it to apply in ALL COUNTRIES.

Badge123:

You're exactly right. Makes sense, doesn't it? Imagine if marriages were only recognised in the country they took place in.... The same applies for divorces.

But we're all in a very very grey area now.

No we're not =) It's all black and white.

Idicemic:

their divorce was only legalized in the US; they're still married in J

Writing this for the third time today - a divorce in another country dissolves a marriage in Japan. It's the same in all countries that I've looked up. Get divorced in the U.S., and you are no longer married in Japan.

Mr. Savoie is still married to Noriko, and as such, is entitled to full parental rights, even now as he sits in jail for exercising those rights.

Sorry wrong. See my comment above. Note the story states ex-husband, but that's not the only reason I'm saying this. A divorce overseas dissolves a marriage in Japan - if that's what your argument is based on?

Horse puckey. If you want to use the "he's technically Japanese" argument, then you also have to apply the "He's still technically married in Japan" argument, which gives him every right to pick up his own kids

I don't think that's correct. A legal divorce overseas is valid in Japan. If you are legally married in Japan, and then divorced overseas, your marriage in Japan is dissolved.

"But she is probably a typical cold, selfish Japanese b*tch - look what she did with the kids and ignoring a court order." What's he ethnicity got to do with it? Are you racist?

Well I'm definitely not racist. The person who wrote that probably isn't either. But I guess you haven't been crossed by many Japanese girls in your life. They're particularly cold and selfish when they want to be. And it's very rarely deserved, IMO. So don't be fooled by those pleasant looks and that mediocre personality - there's a lot more underneath...

So the word mutilation could only apply if the person doing it to themselves viewed the artwork as degrading themselves. Not what someone else thinks of it.

I guess someone who gets a tattoo will never consider it mutilation at the time. But if someone else doesn't like it, and considers it degrading the appearance of someone else, it's perfectly accurate for it to be called degradation in that person's opinion.

But I guess what you're saying is that if someone likes it, leave them alone. Fair enough, but other people's opinions are kind of irrelevant to how we each decide to view tattoos.

Man. I really don't get why everyone is saying she's beautiful. That's one awkward looking girl if you ask me. Kind of munchkin-like face. And a rather shapeless figure, and then adding all those tattoos. Sheesh. Before anyone flames me for being rude or insensitive... She's willingly putting herself on display :D

Cool! Plain clothes police on trains are a great idea to stop groping. I can't wait until one of these officers gets groped... And I mean that because I want to see the guy being made an example of.
