Perhaps he was looking to start his own X Force and she was being interviewed. Her cooking skills probably got her on the team. The masks are hers to use to disguise herself when she's a superhero. Time to jump out the plane in an Dead Pool style, there's crime to fight!

Japan needs to increase its birth rate...perhaps we should be encouraging more of this!

Free Koban love hotel if you don't use a condom!

I wonder what first attracted these applicants to the BILLIONAIRE Yusaku Maezawa???

Posted in: Japan household spending falls again in November See in context

Japan has some of the lowest minimum wages in the developed world. It raised consumption tax to 10%, ignores corporate greed, fails to integrate women into the business world, has a high national debt to GDP, 20% of children are living in poverty, housing is too expensive, banks don't pay any interest on people's money and you wonder why household spending falls!

Posted in: More convenience store operators eye shorter hours, closures for holidays See in context

There wouldn't be a "labor shortage" if these convenience stores payed ¥1200+ an hour instead of ¥850-950!

These business have failed to adapt to changing opportunities and better work life conditions being provided in other industries. Pay your workers more money and advertise jobs with higher wages, then this "labor shortage" will quickly disappear like it wasn't even there to begin with.

Posted in: Abe asks Johnson to minimize Brexit impact on Japanese firms See in context

The EU has a dwindling population and decreasing percentage of world trade. It is involved in approximately 25-30% of world trade. Why wouldn't the UK thrive in the other 75%? The UK is a net contributor to the EU, they can have our trade or the USA, China, India, Japan etc can benefit more! Only scaremongerers believe that the UK wont adapt and advance its economy and interdependence with other countries.

Posted in: U.N. declined Abe's request to speak at Sept climate summit: sources See in context

Japan has built its economy on innovation, creativity, technology and being ahead of consumer and society demands. However, when it comes to renewable energy, instead of being a world leader and seeing the possible benefits to its economy and the environment, it is dragging its heals. Nevertheless, the Japanese representative at the UN should have been allowed to speak if only to see if any changes have occurred to Japan's stance on the issues and to allow others to counter act the representatives points. It is noticeable that Toyota is investing billions in fully electric cars now that Tesla and other electric car companies are increasing their productivity. Why has Japan become a follower where before it was a world leader of change?

Posted in: China calls U.S. world's biggest source of instability See in context

China needs a reality check. The days of a $500 billion annual trade surplus with the USA are over. China needs to buy more US goods and accept the fact that the US economy and spending power is superior. What would happen to the Chinese economy if the US put tariffs up on Chinese goods to 35-50%? The collapse of its economy, that's what. If you owned a shop, would you insult your best customer?

Posted in: Automakers around world await Trump tariff decision See in context

Trump should ensure that these companies do indeed build a percentage of their cars in the USA. However, the biggest trade deficit is with China. They are the country that needs to be hit hardest. That is where trade imbalances and intellectual theft needs to be confronted and not so much with economic and military allies.

Posted in: Suzuka on typhoon lockdown as F1 bosses hope Japan GP can go ahead See in context

Before F1 was privatized on Sky TV, this section would have received many comments. However, F1 has lost over 400 million viewers. No one even mentions F1 anymore on social media or in the pub. A sport chasing money and losing fans!

Posted in: 'SNL' adds 3 to its cast, including an Asian American comic See in context

The problem with SNL is that it has become too political. There's too much anti-trump, anti-republican and anti centre-right humor that falls flat. Now this would be more acceptable if the humor was balanced. However, it isn't balanced as there isn't enough humorous sketches aimed at the left. Therefore half of its potential viewers aren't interested and switch off. Furthermore, even if you are neutral like myself, the show simply isn't as funny as it used to be. It could thrive but needs fresh writing from a broader spectrum

Posted in: Farage offers Johnson an electoral pact for no-deal Brexit See in context

If Brexit isn't fulfilled then the Brexit Party has every right to hold the Conservatives and remainers to account!

WTO Brexit is fine. Watch the EU fail miserably without our trade.
