Taxi for Zichi!

Either way you spin this, it's still people getting upset over a dessert.

Wonda Tea Coffee, cheese ramen, mayo on pizzas, where will the madness end?

Posted in: In Japan, new rules may leave home-sharing industry out in the cold See in context

I have. It's an utter nightmare.

I'm interested to know why. I have two apartments that I rent out through Airbnb, I've never had any complaints and indeed several neighbours have complimented my guests on the way they dispose of trash, park their rental cars, kep the noise down etc. Then again, I do make a big point of stressing to my guests the importance of neighbourly manners when they book.

Also, many of my regular neighbours are pigs; peeing in the parking area, leaving trash out for the crows to savage, dumping stuff in the bushes etc. The area is often a midden and I often have to clean up after them. In my experience my customers have behaved far better than most of my Japanese neighbours who are renting and treat the place like a dumping ground.

Interesting, Japan could have him lead them out for this summer’s World Cup.

Despite a mediocre last decade though, Wenger is likely to have quite a lot of tempting offers I’d guess.

Posted in: Trade issues expose limits of Trump-Abe 'bromance' See in context

I've heard Trump talk a lot about unfair trade etc, but I've never actually seen the details of why he feels this. I don't just mean the trade imbalance, because this doesn't necessarily mean that the trading conditions are unfair. I mean actual details about why he feels he's been cheated by almost every country in the world. Does anyone have any details?

I often see them at night in a free parking lot here, cruising around slowly, glued to their screens catching pixels. They don't do any harm, but they just annoy me. I've considered bouncing myself off their cars, rinsing them for a million or two. Reckon I could get away with a couple of shakedowns a year.

@SuperLib, you forgot another massive one; he lied about the weather on his inauguration day. Fortunately for his supporters, actual meteorological conditions are just fake news.

Posted in: U.S., Britain, France launch strikes against Syria See in context

It would be nice if the various governments could possibly share some of their intel on the chemical attacks in Syria (and the UK) with the public. I suspect that Russia may be the 'bad guy', but I also have my doubts about the honesty & intentions of western governments including my own. As Oldman said above, it feels like we're the dog that is being wagged.

Posted in: Trump weighs Syria options; Russia envoy says 'cannot exclude' war See in context

Trump once again limits his options by Fox-fuelled Twitter hastiness. This is an almost perfect situation for his foreign policy; a country that no American cares about, no American wants to die in, against an an enemy that no American wants to fight. But he needs a Saddam / Bin Laden moment to distract from his shambolic presidency, and he's so easily rattled that he might well be sucked into the quagmire to prove that he's really really good on the military thing after all. Which of course, he won't be.

Posted in: Liverpool beats Man City 2-1 to reach into Champions League semifinals See in context

How is that not the headline of this article, or a separate article in its own?

Even as a Liverpool fan I have to agree, but I suppose that it's because the result of a match between two English teams is more relevant to the readers of an English website than a game between Roma & Barca.

Can't wait to get home tonight and watch both game

Posted in: Liverpool beats Man City 2-1 to reach into Champions League semifinals See in context

yes but with the away goal rule it would be 7-1, so Man City needed another 7 goals.

That's not how it works Zichi. Man City would have needed 5 goals to go through after Firminho's goal. An away goal counts 'double' in the event of a tie after two games. But only one of the goals counts double. If Citeh had scored another 5 goals last night, they would have gone through 6-5. If they only scored 4 they would have been 5-5, but lost on away goals.

@Zichi, it was 5-1 on aggregate, not 7-1. Either way, nobody could have forseen that.

We were a bit lucky with that 'second' goal that Citeh scored. That could have made the 2nd half very nervous. But superb result for the Reds, I think we have a good a chance as anyone now.

Posted in: Trump administration mulls stiffer rules for imported cars See in context

Imported Honda, Toyota, Nissan are hi-tech and eco.

That must be why they had to recall a couple of million of them in the last few years due to a range of life-threatening shoddy defects.

This idea that all American cars are cast-iron, poorly made gas-guzzling carbuncles is outdated nonsense. Just look at the eco cars that Tesla, Ford & Chevrolet are making for a start. I'm no great fan of American cars myself, but they are catching up to their Japanese & European rivals quickly.

This Avenatti fellow really is leading Trump and his Keystone Cop lawyers a delightfully merry dance! Adulterer, conman, traitor, draft dodging coward, kleptocrat and proving over and over again to be a complete liar by everyone from boy scouts to porn stars. What an absolute shambles of a President. An omni-shambles if ever there were one.

Nice research there @Laguna, appreciated.

I had to check the figures myself because they seem so insane, but you're spot on.

$5.6 million dollars per day it's costing. That's a spanking new Lamborghini every hour. I'm in the wrong business.

Lord help us if the Nankai Trough throws a wobbly in the next decade, the country will be finished.
