Reds have looked pretty average in Europe this season. Tough game against Napoli coming up at Anfield. Win 1-0 and we're through, win 2-1 and we're out.

Posted in: Founder of staffing firm gets suspended sentence for speeding at 147 kph on expressway See in context

150kmh is regular motorway speed in the UK

UK speed limit is 70mph (112kmph) on dual carriageways, 60mph on single like the Tokyo Shuto. If you get clocked doing 150, you will likely lose your license.

The Shuto is a tight and winding 'expressway', doing 150 on there is rather dangerous.

..and of course you can not explain why exactly that would be the case.

It would be hard to explain to a man who quotes made up illnesses. For a start, I thought Mexico was footing the bill for this little debacle?

The Israelis would beg to differ

I could care less about the Israelis

Democrats who are trying to prevent the wall being built are doing Trump & the Republicans a huge favour. The wall would be a huge failure, an eternal embarrassment for America and a monument to the stupidity and gullibility of Trump and his supporters.

Trump said he wanted a worldwide network "to show the World the way we really are. GREAT!"

The feeble minded fool has been gorging on North Korean pies and thinks the outside world is as gullible and stupid as his followers.

I wasn’t the one running around for over 2 years whining about “but we won the popular vote why aren’t we in charge”.

But you're whining about it now, when it doesn't work for you

Its also why Repubs in Orange County have no representation at all and should move to somewhere that they do.

They do have representation. How many people do you think can afford to up sticks and move to a place where their vote is guaranteed to 'win'?

I like to see such impeachment hearings and votes called each week, so we can have a nice tally of who is a thug and who is not. Simple.

Agreed. Keep the pressure on. If one plate falls, spin up another. I seem to remember some other political party using this method not so long back.

I obviously meant the text that you referred to, not your post.

Understood, thanks.

And you know even less than I thought; you've bought into the propaganda from CNN, Nancy Pelosi, et al.

So you are saying that two entities that I don't watch or listen to aren't publicly proposing open borders, but they are lying about that and I've bought their lies because in reality they are in favour of open borders? Very cunning of them.

Do you have any proof that liberals are in favor of open borders and free immigration? I mean, beyond the comments section on conspiracy youtube videos.

Posted in: Mexico to boost security at border after migrants try to cross See in context

Pose that question to your liberal Democrats. They don't think there's anything wrong with open borders, free migration. 

They do think there is something wrong with it. Nobody is proposing open borders. You've bought the lies you've been regularly fed by Trump and infoxwars

But then they look to the U.S. to host the migrants.

Who is 'they'? Do you mean Europeans are looking to America to take the latin american migrants that aren't massing at their borders?

.as long as illegals aren't swarming into THEIR countries.

Good grief you know even less than I thought. They are 'swarming', but are being dealt with without sending armed soldiers for political purposes.

Do they really want to waste 2 years trying to aid the failed Muller "probe"?

They don't have to aid it, they just have to not hinder it. And how can it be failed if it hasn't finished? A lot of you seem to be confused by the phrase 'ongoing investigation'

The Democrats have BIG problems. They have elderly leadership and rank and file have no experience.

True, but they also have young voters, and increasing numbers of them. Republicans can't cling on to climate change denial and support for white supremacists forever and hope to stay relevant.

Posted in: An increasing number of companies in Japan have banned employees from smoking during their work hours, aiming to resolve low productivity caused by their smoking breaks. Do you agree with this policy? See in context

I think it's high time to move on from tobacco smoke around the world.

I'm sure even most smokers would agree that a world without tobacco would be a better one. Unfortunately governments are as addicted to the taxes on it as smokers are to the cigarettes themselves. I shudder to think what kind of criminal nightmare would be caused by banning tobacco. You'd have a Medellin in every country.

The good news is that smokers are generally decreasing worldwide, non-smokers are protected more and more. Less than two decades ago you could smoke at your desk in Japan.

However, if they give non-smokers the same breaks as smokers then it's all good.

They do. Japanese labor laws stipulate that employees may have a one hour break if they work over 8 hours (45 mins for 6 hours work). Workers can take this when they want if it does not interfere with other people's work or the smooth running of the company. Technically, a smoking break should be subtracted from that hour.

In other words, taking a coffee break and reading a newspaper for 10 mins, or having a chat with Noriko in accounts is the same as taking a smoking break. One of my three employees is a smoker. I don't mind him nipping out for a smoke in the same way I don't mind the other two having a kit kat and browsing the web. As long as they don't abuse it and recognize that sometimes work pressures mean they have to abstain for a while.

And a person who in this day and age does not know the danger is not fit to be let out alone, never mind hold down a grown-up job.

This is getting ridiculous. They are having a smoke outside the office, not mainlining heroine whilst operating power tools.

No need to be facetious. I never attacted you personally now did I?

You seem to be quite sensitive, so I'll apologise for any offense / annoyance caused.

You may enjoy breathing in that muck but I don't.

I certainly don't, but I don't enjoy being behind a truck on my scooter at the traffic lights either. Some things have to be endured though in a society built on compromise and tolerance.

Vote that one down.

I did, thanks. Smokers' taxes fund a myriad of projects that benefit people with impeccable lifestyles such as yourself. I don't smoke myself, because I have other ways to look Big and Clever.

We're supposed to cut off diplomatic relations and cancel multi billion dollar business deals over this?

Just out of interest, what would a nation have to do to threaten a multi billion dollar deal? If he was a US citizen killed in Turkey, would that do it? How about a US citizen killed in the US? I'm not being sarcastic, I really want to know where you draw the line, and what's your price?

Trump’s poor behavior does not excuse the poor behavior of the press

So what excuses Trump's poor behavior?

One doesn’t need to look farther than than the social programming of the BBC or British TV shows.

The British press & public have knack for identifying and calling out blowhards and fakes such as Trump, which is why they've never elected such an obvious conman. Americans are much easier to lie to these days if the lies fit their 'beliefs'.

By attacking Trump, Left wing journalists make it defensible for a future Democrat president to be disrespected by a Right wing media personality.

They are welcome to attack and disrespect. True patriotism is being able to ask questions of those who are elected without fear. Trump thinks otherwise.

Posted in: Judge orders White House to restore CNN reporter's access See in context

He’s mostly disrespectful to the president and Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I don’t think he should ever get his press pass back.

You mean he asks difficult questions instead of slobbering all over them like Fox do. 'Respect' for you means 'subservience'. Any other messages apart from 'MAGA' and 'Winning' are most uncomfortable to those who have Stockholm Syndrome. Populists and their acolytes have long since been sensitive to criticism or scrutiny, you're not new in wanting to silence people who question the lies of the like of Trump. He's lucky he doesn't have to regularly face the questions of his political peers like leaders do in most developed democracies.

American John Kerry had a young man TAZERED for daring to try and ask a 2nd question at one of his events.

Completely false, hilariously so. When the police attempted to remove the student, Kerry told them, "“That’s alright, let me answer his question”. By your logic Trump was to blame for the "assault" on the intern you've gotten yourself so fired up about. Except that Trump refused to answer any question.

Ever noticed that blank memo space on the back of KK bars? I've always wondered what it was for, until Wiki revealed this

Nestlé and the Japan Post launched a campaign in 2009, allowing people to write messages and mail the chocolate bars from 20,000 post offices. The special packages included a space to write a message of encouragement and affix a stamp. The promotional packages were sold out within a month

Bonkers stuff eh! Apparently there have been over 300 regional & seasonal varieties too since 2000.
