Don't care who the chef is, a Michelin star tells me to avoid that restaurant at all costs because it will be a rip-off.

I am curious of your experience, which ones have you tried ?

You can be sure that this dude enjoyed the company of Russian ladies and didn't check for cameras ...

Nobody is dumb enough to give that to 2 random Russians for a few hundreds of thousands of yen.

All night diners in the cities I've lived in will always have a special place in my heart.

I join you there, those places always had something special for me, maybe because they can provide an anonymous, restful and peaceful meal after a tough night, or a place to chat, eat light stuff with ones friends until dawn.

Is it nostalgia as I don't go there much anymore ...

Burning BushToday 07:07 am JST

Good.

Freedom of speech prevails.

Let each individual decide for themselves

I don't think ads as being part of freedom of speech. Those political parties are well in the right of publishing what they want on their websites, but pushing ads to me, who never asked for anything for political reason is not about freedom of speech. It's propaganda.

Posted in: Ghosn met Lebanese president after fleeing Japan See in context

GWToday 12:29 pm JST

Folks, just an FYI, one CAN have more than one valid passport at the same time from the same country, anyone who tours or does a lot of business travel often have two passports so they can obtain visa's in a timely manner or for example if one does business in BOTH Israel & say Saudi Arabia, neither want to see stamps of the others entry into the other country, solution, TWO valid passports.

Carlos likely simply had more than one valid passport from somewhere & kept it, nothing unusual at all

If he went through the border with a passport written "Carlos Ghosn" on it that's quite a failure from the border protection ...

The movement has not been initiated by yellow vests. This is only a union movement, mostly by guess who, the rail unions, those with overly advantageous retirement packages as it has been stated.

This would be the case anywhere outside of Japan.

How is it serving Justice to publish victims names ?

The rich will still drink their champagne and buy their luxury bags.

Could even be counter productive, people buy those as a display of status; more expensive, higher status ...

Why is the US government getting involved ? This has nothing to do with the US and even less with free trade agreements.

It's about making pay their fair share of taxes to the companies operating in France making money out of French citizens and evading taxes ...

Revenge porn ? So small issue compare to

For me and you maybe, you know the video will be seen by a few hundreds and forgotten between millions of similar videos in a few weeks. But for a public person like her you can be sure that it will be millions of views, her family, her friends, her country. It'll follow her for the rest of her life, it'll always be viewable easily on Internet. I wouldn't categorize that as a small issue.

Saw a scientist on TV the other day who said that if all of the ice at both of the poles melted, the water level would reach the Statue of Liberty's elbow. Maybe now's a good time to purchase some mountaintop real estate.

Or boats. I don't have the funds yet sadly, guess I'll just stick to watching Waterworld to get ready.

Toasted HereticToday 01:28 pm JST

Disclosure: I don't like Biden. I see him as the old guard, another spokesperson for the elite and as such, I would despair if he is the best the Democrats can offer up against Trump.

But this language from Pyongyang (whichever faction is pushing it) is not helpful.

I actually think it is very helpful... To their case ... With the current US president.
