The prosecutors are acting like Bitcoin is real money. "Trust" is a pretty flimsy concept anywhere in Bitcoin land. LOL

It was an exchange though, people were taking JPY in and out of that.

France is a mess. Messiah Macron turning out to be a paper tiger. A bit like the French Tony Bliar.

I fail to see the link with the story though.

I was forced into a confession for jay walking. But I was eventually released after a day and two more half days.

I don't see how that is really solvable. There are plenty of other wonderful places in France in which to live. Its a beautiful country.

Sadly most of the job market is highly centralized, except retired people not that many people can have the opportunity to live in those "wonderful places"

Those rioters are not originals "gilets jaunes", they're just joining hoping to cause as much violence as possible. I start to wonder if those groups are not externally fueled (US, Russia ?) in an effort to help taking down the EU.

@Matt Hartwell those numbers don't mean much when Russia could just turn off the gas pipe

They put themselves in that situation by not developing alternatives. Dumb and short sighted.

They have been trying for a while, but strangely enough all the pipes, agreement projects get thrown out or delayed by wars, foreign invasions, etc.

Why is it, that no one is asking how Turkey was able to make a recording of something that went on within another Countries Embassy.... ?

Bugged ?

I wonder which other Countries Embassies they're listening into ? The US, British .... Chinese ?

Everybody is listening to everybody, that's no secret and one of the main goal of an embassy.

Why did the woman get a much lighter sentence than the other eight? Looks like Indonesia is following the Australian model of unequal gender justice.

Posted in: Transport ministry eyes inspection of JAL, ANA over pilots' drinking See in context

jcapanToday 07:38 am JST

Two of my best friends are pilots with US major airlines. We used to get blind drunk all the time in the '90s. But never, not once, even when they were flying Cessnas to build up mileage, did they ever drink the night before a flight.

I don't really now what is going on in North America or Europe but from experience, in Middle-east, Asia, it's a common practice today, pilots, cabin crew get drunk few hours before flying ... Often...

This needs to be addressed and dealt with seriously, there's no "going oveboard" on the subject.

This is going to be blown out of proportion big time

This should, and not only on Japanese carriers.

You decide to be pilot, you don't drink before a flight, that's all, not open to discussion. You do, you're out of job.

Always pissing me off to hear about crew cheating, skipping those tests because they drunk like crazy the night before.

Today 07:41 am JST

   A event of WW1 and they expect the US president to put himself in harms way to bad weather in a foreign country and has to personally attend it? It seems like they take it as a insult and a dishonor to the dead if the President skip a ceremony in a foreign country. Do they even have any idea just how many US troops died during this whole century alone?

What are you talking about? It was a US cemetery, honoring US deads during WWI. I am usually standing against strong patriotism and in military followers but this is just crossing the line. I feel bad for the families of the American combatants who gave their life in WWI to be ignored like that. There's a minimum decency to have. Whatever propaganda is spurred, west Europeans respect, remember and are grateful of North American combatants.

Because in some countries, such as the UK, there are many legal protections based on sex. Refuges from domestic violence, rape crisis services etc and laws safeguarding children and vulnerable adults are a few examples.

Why do those should be sex based ?

The $420 price was an interesting price. It easily could have been meant as a joke.

He actually said he calculated that by adding the normal 20% going private to the current stock price, he came to 419 and then rounded it to 420 because he thought his girlfriend would find it funny ...

You can't make up this stuff ...

MadvertsToday 01:43 pm JST

Eppee,

It’s newsworthy for the mainstream media - keeping the right wing bogeyman (or woman in this case) alive.

Le Pen got buried in the ‘16 runoff with pitiful voter turnout. The FN will be like the French communist party before long, AGM in a public phone booth.

I hope you'll be right, but honestly the support coming from outside (US-Bannon, Russia, obviously to break Europe) to the extrem right groups is worrying.

She posted on her twitter (which was not with limited access) a video/pictures of the James Foley beheading. This is an infraction in France, in this situation, by law the judge has to order the psychiatric evaluation to ensure the citizen is sane. Nothing deserving all this attention.

He won because he is the richest politician in Japan and ranked first on the list of the top 10 richest politicians in Japan with an estimated net worth of 4.5 billion dollars.

I'll bet Japanese people don't even know this.

Seems to be a currency error, his estimated net worth was 4.5B JPY from some random website :

While the only one stating 4.5B USD is another less than believable site :

I live in the countryside, we usually trade products. No money, no bitcoins. Currency fluctuations, hacking, price of gold...no effect. Solar panels. Cheap or free water. People should use technology or work, and move to the countryside.

You guys can live in autarky ? No exchange with outside ?

Disagreements between the different populist parties in Europe kept them weak but it may change, nationalists under the impulse of Bannon, supporter of Le Pen, start to rally together.
