I have never been in a locker room and I have never said the kind of things Trump said. He should withdraw and leave it to Pence. Poor old Pence has to keep making excuses for the scumbag.

But for all the craft breweries the whole world's beer would be the same muck that Asahi "brews" (chemical adulderated maltade).Let's hope Europe can keep this beer polluter OUT.

Posted in: Getting stopped by police in Japan – how often does it happen (and why?) See in context

****In 1982 I was stopped by Haneda police and required to show my Alien Registration booklet every Sunday evening for 2 months. I always asked them how they knew I was a foreigner. Eventually they stopped stopping me. Provided you are not doing anything suspicious you have the right to insist that THEY show their ID first.
