Foolish. The bigger deal they make out of this, the bigger deal the anti whaling ecotards will work themselves up into a froth.

I think it's quite obvious that her denial is an indication that she is still using drugs on a regular basis...

I was thinking the same thing. And they don't mind too much about taking out a few friendlies in the process. If this was any way Islam related, it was a foolish move. Tehran doesn't need Moscow as an enemy. Now now, not ever.

Posted in: Man, 19, arrested for beating girlfriend's 2-yr-old son to death See in context

From an anthropological perspective, this isn't so uncommon. Male killing the offspring of his rival. It actually gives the stand in (the guilty 19 y/o) gene's a better chance, assuming he got her pregnant again. (Which he likely would have had it not been for the police) So this really is Darwin in action. The guy who left the girl with his kid, is actually the holder of the weak genes, which have been eliminated from the pool.

For those that will complain that human instincts like the above, (which have been operating for hundreds of thousands of years), have no place in modern society, this is what you get when kids slip through the cracks like these two likely have.

All they have go on is their survival instincts, and nothing else. In that respect they are very much like prehistorical humans.

Some are apathetic, however. One male club worker complained, “Those who get fined for being late, it’s their own fault.”

how does apathetic mean expecting people to take responsibility for their actions?

The meeting is becoming more like U.N. climate change meetings, they said, where politics at times trumps science and a deals are struck by world leaders behind closed doors.

This is ridiculous. Most normal places will just give free dental service in exchange for letting some students practice on you.

To spend all the time, money, and effort to build a robot for this purpose is a bit misguided. But then again, I guess by focusing on building useless expensive robots that can bow to prime ministers and get international press, Japan can pretend they are making real progress.

Um dude, he means the original.

Um, dude, you mean the one that has been remade every which way?

I get what you're saying, and what he's saying, but usually when you make a statement like "this story hasn't been told in xx years" it usually means "this story" or any other story like it, not some tale that has been told every which way umpteen times.

Nevertheless, I love Del Toro (even sat through three hours of spanish Che, with Japanese subtitles) and will see this when it comes out.

Posted in: U.S. needs Toyota more than Toyota needs U.S. See in context

Sorry, but the numbers just don't add up. The number of unemployed people in the U.S. is about 14.7 million. If every single Toyota employee in America lost their jobs, that number would increase from 14.7 million to 14.9 million (according to the numbers in this article), with a corresponding change in unemployment from 9.7 to 9.8, not a huge shift.

On the other hand, if Americans stopped buying Toyotas en masse, Toyoya's market share would drop by a whopping 16%. Hardly a drop in the bucket.

It's foolish to begin with to even argue that any target market needs the jobs more than the product maker needs the buyer in the same target market.

But the unnamed writer of this nationalistic fluff piece needn't concern themselves with actual data.

Posted in: Obama calls on Democrats to pass health care bill See in context

Once people get used to having health insurance amounts deducted, they'll quickly get used to it

What you're more likely to see happen is people will start treating health services as "right" and not a service that they have to worry about paying for. Then you'll have people running to the emergency room for every sneeze and sniffle demanding to be seen because health care is their "basic human right," and they've already "paid their premiums."

All this will do is to over tax an already overtaxed system. Granted the system needs to be fixed, but handing over control to the U.S. government, an entity who has increased spending an average of a dollar fifty for every increase in tax revenue, this isn't such hot idea.

All will do is make a bad system worse. The government will get more power, and the average joe on the street will get less service.

I predict disaster, ever increasing deficits, an overall reduction in the quality of service, and a repeal of this law by whoever succeeds Obama as president in 2012.

Posted in: Obama calls on Democrats to pass health care bill See in context

The media sure love Obama and his health care plan. Every day the news can't wait to tell us "It's Just about To Pass," "It's one step closer to passing," "victory is in sight," etc etc.

Unfortunately, this bill is so filled with waste and inefficiency, and many of Obama's promises regarding health care reform have been taken out, that it's likely to do nothing other than make a bloated inefficient system more bloated more inefficient.

Good going Barrack.

It is a really strange concept, JT, but people usually take their holidays when they have time off from work. Maybe Japan will eventually figure out a way around those pesky laws of time and space.
