I was about to dismiss this invention, but I can appreciate how they changed the paradigm and achieved high speed with a forward-bent posture, that natural bipeds (including humans) would use.

I like it more as a participatory sport, not spectator sport.

Pink color is believed to put people in a "passive mood", used as decor for lockers for guest teams:

Agreed that the same should be done at men's prisons.

I'm a reformed Apple fanboy, but I'll stay up to see this one.

Somewhat worried though that the anticipated wearable will cost more than I can afford and require an iPhone to be useful (I can't afford an iPhone).

Definitely an improvement. Without the ladies, you see mostly grumpy old men. Some balance is always good.

"Hello!? I'm on a plane. Yes. Yes. No, not yet. No. Ha haaa... No, it looks like it's about to fall apart. No tv... No. Yes. Well, tell Steve I will talk to him when I'm back. No. Well, I don't care. Jeez, this is taking forever. Is some idiot late again? Yes, I found my seat. I'm in my seat. No, aisle. Nah... No, but the cabin crew are hot. I said hot. One just passed me, she's a looker that one. She's doing that thing with the seat belts and masks now. No, nobody cares. No, I said I'll talk to him after I'm back. No. Well, screw him... Screw him. Tell him he can shove that deal... Yes. Hahaaa... The lady next to me gave me a look. No, I don't think... No. Nobody speaks English in this country. Ha haaa... Well, I'll talk to you... Yes, I know, I'll tell him myself. Later. Yes. No. What? No. Gotta go. Later."

@CrazyJoe, I think Saitama is under the jurisdiction of Saitaman.

Posted in: Gov't advises citizens to stockpile toilet paper See in context

From what I've seen so far, any advice given to the Japanese people on TV or any other mass media will be taken extremely seriously to the point of overreaction. The scale of the reaction will definitely have an impact on economy, be it positive or negative.

I think I should stock up on toilet paper before it becomes scarce or overpriced. Not because of any natural disaster.

But... but... "Heading for a fall" was by Vaya con Dios, not Sinead OConnor. ;)
