I feel like with the current political climate, this was the wrong time to unveil this character. It's a shame because i like Miles and any other time it would have great to have a movie based on him.

There is something odd about getting arrested for abusing an app. It's not like he hacked a company server. This program clearly has holes and it should be on the company to fix that. Invalidate his points and place limits so this can't be done again.

Posted in: U.S., China reach 90-day ceasefire on tariffs in trade dispute See in context

Winning. This is a cease fire, not a win. But trump said winning trade wars is easy - yet he’s zero for three right now.

You still haven't answered my question. What is winning a trade war if not negotiating a better deal? It's certainly not to destroy the other economy as that would hurt both sides. When the other side is willing to make concessions, you have won. This is of course assuming China will follow through. Otherwise its just stalling.

Posted in: U.S., China reach 90-day ceasefire on tariffs in trade dispute See in context

Why is the US signing a cease-fire? I thought winning trade wars was easy?

What do you think the goal of a trade war is? It's not destroy your opponents economy. It's to reach a deal that is beneficial to your side. China just cried Uncle. Go Trump.

This is what happens when you take peace for granted. You start to see only the cost of maintaining a military and not the benefit.

The sharpness of the red really contrasts with her paleness. That's not the right color her. She should be wearing lighter colors.

Posted in: Silent plane with no moving parts makes 'historic' flight See in context

Something tells me plane tickets will not get any cheaper once this is implemented. The airlines will pocket the savings for the shareholders and customers will still pay an arm and a leg to get packed like sardines.

So by the time you get to the attraction, the park is closed and you just wasted 11 hours. Great!

Posted in: Man tries to fraudulently use Aeon loyalty points by pretending to visit its stores 2.7 mil times See in context

And despite his efforts to spread the wealth among fake accounts, the rapidly increasing number of visits was still enough to raise a flag at Aeon who reported the anomaly to the police.

They called the police because someone was abusing their app? They should have just cancelled the accounts. Japan seems to be lacking cyber security experts. Someone should have know this was a bad idea. I guess this guy will miss out on his "criminal" savings.

This game is a godsend. All those mindless zombies actually have a reason to go out, get exercise and explore some new places. Who knows, they may actually meet people and get lives.

That's like saying you've never heard of Michael Jordan because you don't watch basketball. You should be embarrassed...

Posted in: Woman arrested over fatal stabbing of U.S. military airman See in context

Oh, I see. So the logic of this group is that, any woman would stab a man for no reason? Did you miss the part of the article stating their had been loud arguing before the stabbing? It takes two to make an argument.

No. The logic of you is that any man would harm a woman for no reason and never the benefit of the doubt. This is not a place for misandrists.

Wow. Talk about "man bites dog". Please try to refrain from victim blaming. Unless this man was trying to hurt her, there is no excuse for her actions.

Posted in: Abe talks with Trump on phone; praises his efforts in midterm elections See in context

"I tell him all the time that Japan doesn't treat the United States fairly on trade," said Trump, adding, "They send in millions of cars at a very low tax. They don't take our cars."

Someone needs to educate Trump on economics. Japan's auto market is tiny and oversaturated compared to the states. You can't honestly expect to sell as many cars there as they do in the states. If American makers started making kei cars, maybe they would do better.

Posted in: Passengers to be banned from carrying knives onto all trains in Japan from April See in context

Knives are already pretty much banned in Japan. As if this is going to deter someone who wants to commit multiple homicides. Just another knee jerk reaction to create the illusion of total safety.

China does not follow the tenets of Communism, and therefore it is not Communist. This is not a matter of opinion, it is something that can be quantified through a comparison of these tenets with the actions of China that do not follow them.

The public ownership of property is the primary tenant of Communism. There is no private property in China therefore China is Communist by definition.
