Posted in: Paris Olympics set for gold medal in luxury promotion See in context


I like the medallion designs. They remind of Japanese metal art. The Japonisme of French and Philippe Burty will always remain in vogue.

That's only you, dear. Japonisme? The French are capable enough to design chic things without any Japonisme influence.

But personally I don't like these at all: they tried so much to highlight that hexagonal piece of Eiffel tower that the entire thing ended up looking like a communist military medal, with those rays coming out underneath it..

Posted in: Anger over Messi's absence in Hong Kong game spreads: Argentina friendly in mainland China canceled See in context

Well, Messi was the big sales point in this tournament :) . I ensure you they wouldn't have had half the sales if he would announce he would be missing. That being said, he has the right to declare he's injured (probably he really is) and miss all the games!

Buhbye, hamas... You poked the bear one time too many. There is absolutely no benefit for Israel to ceasefire or comply with any of your demands - why would they stop before all of hamas is eradicated?

Japan lacks the hairy kintama needed to sink some of those pirates. They wouldn't dare that trick with the USA...

For people mislead by the article's title into clicking and reading it - 80 percent do want a child at some point. Don't focus on the 20 percent and their reasoning, focus on how to support the 80 percent.

I too, had to drive over four hours in yesterday's snow. No issues whatsoever, quite the opposite, everyone was well behaved and the traffic was very smooth. Probably people were extra careful, although some sherbet on the road is not that dangerous.

Posted in: EU states greenlight landmark new AI rules See in context

Oh, and it's another example of EU ruling the world towards a positive outcome. EU also initiated and signed off the GDPR act and it's the main "whip holder"when it comes to controlling greed and money grabbing by the likes of Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc. You're welcome, everyone else!

I worked on this project. Politicians do employ a lot of technical consulting resources in order to learn the AI's capabilities, future and dangers and don't just blindly make decisions. Even if they are not technical people (although many come from technical, engineering backgrounds).

Posted in: People in the world’s ‘blue zones’ live longer – their diet could hold the key to why See in context

Eating mostly vegetarian but not refraining from the occasional fish, chicken or lean red meat. Tons of olive oil, raw garlic, a bit of wine and a bit of bread daily. No smoking and no sugar (sodas, etc). No synthetic additives.

There, I just saved you thousands of dollars in customised "lose fat quickly" diets.

For people asking themselves what are these used mostly used for - mainly for 3D porn. Yep, it's a thing, it gained huge traction thanks to increased internet speeds and CoVID imposed isolation, and there are a lot of free or very affordable sites. It basically the only industry where VR hasn't tanked - everywhere else is losing traction. There you have it.

@Sven Asai - really? Buddy - what I can tell you is that you even don't know what you don't know. You'd be shocked and have nightmares if you would know what's currently possible in terms of AI controlled autonomous killing flying machines.

Anyone worried abuout what the carbon footprint of this little affair will be? Thousands of tons.

All while I'm drinking through a paper straw going bad in five seconds and tasting like carboard before that, "to do my part in saving the environment". That's it, I'm buying a V8....

That's what you get when you allow such specimens in the EU - Hungarians would perhaps prefer to become one of the Soviet states themselves, after sucking at the EU's teat for decades...

BigP - it's not only Tojo that's they're. The souls of a few million ex soldiers are also enshrined. There's absolutely no shame in going and respecting those people, many families have a father or grandfather there.

Yeah, in the meantime China builds its military up for invading the borders of at least five independent (for now) countries, Japan included. So no wonder they'll protest anything like this. Like, why would Japan care about that?

Japan has much bigger problems than what just happened and they will solve then with the very military that just got reprimanded.

What a stupid outcome. Should simply allow people to decide for themselves - to be honest it's not that interesting to watch the video, but I'd totally do it fully nacked myself. It's only skin and we're not that different.

Posted in: Death sentence likely in Japan anime arson trial See in context

It costs more on average to the tax payer to have a person executed than serve life in prison. Many reasons for this, can easily be in online.

It actually doesn't, except in the US (but there a bag of saline water also costs 2500-3000 USD, so yeah...) Online? Please do share one link about the execution cost analysis in Japan, if it's so freely available online.

Many who are against the death penalty for "moral reasons" fail to actually elaborate what that means. Do explain to us why should my taxmoney be wasted on keeping this animal alive for the rest of his misebable life, instead of paying the 100$ for the rope?

Mac computers are nowhere near the PCs with regards to AI. They're mostly for computer illiterates who prefer a company claiming to know better than users what they want.

Posted in: Japan automakers tap foreign models to drive sales of recreational cars See in context

Although they look big, most of the Japanese-designed SUVs and offroader cars are actually not bigger than family mini-vans (under 5m length and under 2 m width) - so they would basically fit almost anywhere, even in Japan. The only problem will be with their weigth, as many underground parking lots don't allow cars over 2t.

Unless you've had someone in your family murdered like this you actually have no right of an opinion on this matter. You have no idea what the affected families go through. You don't ever even want to find out.

Yoo, the "free speech" people - you don't understand your own laws, do you? The free speech right allows you the right to freely express your opinions without fear of persecution from your government. That's about Were they working for a governmental institution? No. Do you have the right of free speech when inside someone's private home? No, more, he has every right to throw you out.

Posted in: Japan Airlines pilots 'unaware of fire' at first See in context

Soooooo many hidden aviation safety specialists coming out of the closet here, on JT's forum!

The "too slow" folks would have be the first to complain if any passenger would have been ingested by a still running engine, or would have descended the slides in a burning puddle of fuel, for example. Instead you should be congratulating the crew for not panicking, like you would have probably done, and not losing anyone!

One should never move faster than needed in aviation and this has exactly what happened here: the captain assessed the situation, went through the shutdown checklists, got informed about the fire spreading and not being able to be contained, then decided it's indeed time to evacuate. They had minor injuries only, no burns, etc. so that was obviously the best decision in the given situation.
