Posted in: Japan's WWII foreign minister asked Holy See to avert war with U.S., documents show See in context

Would be interesting to see how far, if anywhere at all, this went.

I can't really see Hitler's pope having any influence over US diplomacy, though.

Ohtani may be the best player in baseball, but should any player on a crappy team really be the MVP?

Think we have some Rashomon going on with this. I can totally believe freaking out while in a confined space with six kids (plus a wife you're fighting with). I don't know if I believe it 100%, though.

That should be fun!

Look forward to the day that all of Japan's disputes with South Korea is all water under the bridge.

THEN, they can do it all over again with North Korea someday.

Hope the Amazon lockers become more of a thing. Feel bad for those guys going to someone's place 2-3 times and also having people complain if they are 30 minutes late or early for the arranged delivery time.

Posted in: Chinese man gets Japan's 1st skilled worker visa with no time limit See in context

Seems a bit ironic that the world's second largest economy would have its citizens wanting to move to another country for a better opportunity.

That says something about China right there.
