Not sure if it's actually true, but I once read that people in Europe can have about a 10% difference in biological ancestry, while the difference between China, Korea and Japan was something around 1%.

I told my wife, who is Zainichi Korean, what he said. She actually thought it was funny. Not because what he said was funny, but how easily it can be for people/idiots to show their true colors here.

A promoter operates in the same way the Japanese government has and gets scolded for it!?

As Bart Simpson would say, the ironing is delicious.

At the very least PLEASE help the people who helped the US military!

Get them out of the country!

Too much time has already been wasted talking/planning this.

I'm wondering, on what level am I to feel offended by this?

Did his teeth marks actually dent the medal? Was it not pure gold??

Is the quote lost in translation?

"Masturbating" sounds like he is enjoying himself while something like "jerking off" sounds more like wasting time.

We all know how this is going to end. Hope that the new Taliban will be more modern than before.

Feel like he pinned a lot of hope on Macron meeting with him and/or actually doing something.

He is now approaching a critical stage health wise and given the heat I can't imagine they let him stay out there much longer.

Wherever the kids are there must be people that know of this story and know the kids. Hopefully, there will be some back channeling and he can see his kids and end this thing his way.

Like her trainer mentioned in her Netflix show, the only way for this to be successful is for her to win it. I hope she does! Such a unique and talented person!

Was talking with someone about this recently. Japan is a really hard place to hide, especially if you are from Uganda. Perhaps he had this setup already, but I can't imagine this ending well for him.

Would be a bit easier if he were Peruvian or Brazilian.

Just imagine him ending up in one of those detention centers if he is not found before his visa (or stamp) expires.

This is how they walk the line.

They didn't want it opened and were waiting for any excuse to shut it down.

Wonder how much time will be spent on finding the person who sent firecrackers in the mail.

After reading the article what happened doesn't seem at all as strange as I thought it did after reading the headline.

Harassment for harassment's sake?

The sexual stuff is terrible and apparently it's been too commonplace for far too long.

About the other stuff, they just gotta suck it up. People trying to bring you down, that's life!
