"Please cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing" would be so much more beneficial to the public than "Feel free to patronize mothers, the elderly, and the handicapped."

Posted in: Mitsubishi Motors to relocate North American HQ to Tennessee See in context

Like Nissan,

Mitsubishi has also faced its own scandals.

Well, don't be shy, Tennessee. You've got your own ghosts, both past and present. In fact, one of "the state's most powerful Republicans, House Speaker Glen Casada," has had his own power failure very recently.

Unbelievably and arrogantly self-induced, as well.

Wiki tells me the total budget is over 4$ billion with more than 21$ dollars in revenue.

I bought more than 21$ in popcorn watching the Iron Man movies alone!

Interesting indeed! I wonder what that one weird trick is that makes North Korean workers so attractive to companies?

Paradoxically, the University of Tokyo isn't the real world either.

Since people don't eat the skin, can these be 'reusable'?

Darmstadt; "Overblown. Japan has a lower smoking rate than Switzerland, Norway, Ireland, Germany, and France, among others. These nations are not know to be blighted by health issues and have (behind Japan of course) the highest life expectancies on Earth."

I was unaware of this. Do you know if these other countries allow smoking virtually everywhere (with the exception of most hospitals, sports stadiums, and some streets in Tokyo), as Japan does?

Posted in: Trump willing to be questioned under oath in Russia probe See in context

He will never, ever testify under oath to Mueller or anyone in his committee.

Never. Our Earth will crash into the Sun first.

It will be very interesting to now witness him doing everything to avoid it.

PS: Didn't he give this almost exact "I'd love to . . . " statement about releasing his tax returns?

Scrote: "Many people here just throw their rubbish in the street."

In the major cities I see many people using the bushes and shrubbery as waste bins. I was pretty shocked the first time I saw a boy stop his bicycle to toss a can into the bushes, but I was later informed by multiple sources that that was normal. I've seen this type of behaviour hundreds of times since then, admittedly most often done by males of every age.

Posted in: 'Spider-Man' nearly squashed at birth, says creator Lee See in context

I forgive Mr. Lee because of how long ago it has been, but the name that he and Mr Ditko gave this character is "Spider-Man" not "Spiderman".

And yes, I'm itching to see Ragnarok as well.

Posted in: Gov't arranging emperor's meeting with Trump See in context

Trump would be wise to praise the relationship between Japan and the US, and commend the emperor for his lifelong work towards a more peaceful world.

So, I'm anxious to see what he does instead.

After the jobs he swore he saved at Carrier (and Rexnord!) quickly and quietly slipped away offshore,

I'll bet that country is Nambia.

I think we can all agree that Japanese film-making needs to be held up as an example of clearly representing the honest and open ideas about culture and race in the world.

Let Hollywood cater to their own small market.

I wish him continued success and happiness.
