Why aiming for the second position? Rather, Japan should aim at being the number one. Anyway, those are just GDP figures and don't really reflect the people's standard of living. Next topic please.

At the White House, President Barack Obama said “Egyptians have inspired us.

Not really, Mr. President. You are an inspiration to the rest of the world. And every one is, and will always be thankful to you. And of course not forgetting the American people for having been wise enough to have chosen you to be their President.

I strongly feel there is a well orgainized crime syndicate behind these 'sea jackings' I mean, just look at the money involved here. Those poor young Somali 'pirates' in tattered clothes are simply used to do the dirty and dangerous part for only a few thousand bucks at their own risk.

I don't think it is a good idea to cancel. Let fans watch and decide for themselves on what they think would be the best way forward.

Posted in: 7-year-old boy seriously injured in Oita hit-and-run See in context

I would guess the reason why he fled the scene was simply to kill time so the 'ozeki' one cup can run out of the system. Otherwise no point to run in the first place.

Alphaape, they are not there for the superbowl.

It clearly says: Their itinerary includes shopping at Neiman Marcus, visiting the JFK assassination site and 'TOURING' the stadium in Arlington where the big game will be played on Feb 6.

Would you really like to take a tour of the Tokyo Dome while a game is on?

Roomtempreture, JT posters seem to be speed readers. As a result, they always crash at a pace incredibly faster than the accidents they comment on. (^_~)

islandview, that's well and good for folks like you who have the whole day to google around. Simply stating the location could have served even people like you those two paragraphs. My comment was simply a contribution to JT.

Mr/Ms Moderator, with all due respect, not evryone knows were Shiodome is. Adding at least prefecture or city name would help. Not everyone is a Tokyoist mind you.
