Seems simple enough, I won’t be paying ¥1,000 at TOHO though.
but now I know Ed Sheeran is in it I think I'll give it a miss.
Never heard of him. Checked him out and it seems he’s popular enough in the UK with the younger generation.
Watched Castle on the Hill on YouTube. I thought the lyrics and music were bad. Targeted production not so different than the way AKB48 is targeted for the audiences here. I see what you mean.

It's strange how we the little people have to suffer the pangs of our consciences while large-scale industry gets a semi-free pass to pollute the planet.
Its a losing battle. What’s gonna happen when China, India, and so on, break into the larger middle class consumer world?
Start small. Boycott Meiji for their switching to plastic for their cream containers instead of cartons like everyone else, or their plastic twist tops for milk.

Why not go back to the parents who had them between 1999 - 1979 and ask them why they chose to have children. The pill was legalized in 1999.
What could a young unmarried couple do say back in 1985 if they got pregnant?
The post WW II planners had a big job planning a better more efficient society, but I think they got a little carried away. Life/work vs work/life

It was also reported that the officials did not brief Trump on these attacks as they were afraid Trump would leak the information to Russia.
Are you sure they were attack’s? Seems to me they’re just putting things in place just in case.
Cant decide whether its funny or frightening,.
It’s frightening since without Trumps knowledge or authorization, they are breaking many UCMJ laws.
the man who has control over the nuclear button is not trusted with government intelligence*
We all know what the warmongers, MSMwarmongers, corporatewarmongers, basically the deep state are capable of. Of course the meme is going to be they “can’t trust Trump” I wouldn’t expect anything else from these evil people/groups. Don’t buy it.

Filters aren't necessary at all, and if people believe they are, it may discourage people from using tap water, which would be a terrible shame.
So that chlorine smell coming from the tap water doesn’t bother you. Makes me gag. How about what that chlorine does to your system? I’ve been using a water filter and sports bottle for 14 years here and back in the States with 5 gallon water jugs with Reverse Osmosis water for 10 years before that. I still use the 5 gallon jugs when I visit.
I take a small pet bottle with extra water one day a week so I won’t have to buy one when the sports bottle runs dry, and it’s a 1.5 liter bottle.
Lots of plastic problems but not a lot of common sense. The whole banning plastic straws created even more plastic when Starbucks introduce their plastic straw less cups. Why not go back to paper straws? So friggen easy.

Once Japan puts their mind to do something, you can bet they'll go all out to get it done. Right on Japan
I agree. Lots of law abiding citizens here! One look at some of the beeches here and you’ll see 90% Korean or Chinese character writing.

I’ve thought about this. It would take a thousand oil tankers with crane lifts picking up the swirling plastic islands floating around the pacific to have any quick impact. But then you get the environmentalists griping about how your destroying an eco environment. Vicious circle, but know how much the petrodollar is connected to plastic manufacturing and pipelines into Europe and soon one understands that there are big players controlling humanity and an anti plastic movement will take more than your typical 12 Monkey group.

I applaud the company for deciding to not use the slogan. What some posters may not have understood, is that we already understand existing terms, but an advertising slogan has room for ambiguity, which can then lead to misinterpretation and/or offense. This may especially be true in advertising, where ads often can be accessed, globally, out of their original context.
One only has to look at the United Colours of Beneton ads (featuring a black mother, suckling a white baby) to see how an image designed in one culture (in Europe, to show intimate and equal love between black and white people) could be misinterpreted in another (the USA, seen as a black slave "wetnursing" a slave-owner's baby).
You don’t get it do you. It’s intended for the Japanese market, but you’re stuck in the globalists black hole where in their future, we all become blank slate consumers.

Good to see you finally admit Trump is weak.
Every President since the neocon joy joy days of glasnost (oh my god I hafta say this again) has been under the their thumb. Where have you been? Thailand?

the Neocons are the ones in charge.
and have been since Reagan. The breakup of the Soviet Union gave them unlimited fast track power.
No president can take them head on. To assume that “Trump this” “Trump that” shows a lack of knowledge.

Except there is clear evidence of an unexploded limpet mine on the hull at the same height as the blast hole further aft.
You’re right, cuz there is absolutely NO way any other country or 12 Monkey organization could get a white boat and slap an Iranian sticker on it.
I think I’ll look to 24, NCIS or Homeland TV shows for my answers.

A majority of the posts here are just bad-mouthing President Trump; they are "off topic" and should be pulled.

We know none of the big players did this so it’s some small 12 monkeys group or some clandestine operation by one of the many, and probably untraceable to the real puppet masters. The tanker was empty so at least they care about the environment.

yes it is an outrage that a sitting POTUS would accept foreign information / advice over his own countres intelligence and it is also a nation security issue.accept foreign information / advice over his own countres intelligence and it is also a nation security issue.
Granted I didn’t follow the thread but this was too funny. How did y’all go from “take info on 2020 presidential opponent from foreign countries” to “accept foreign information / advice over his own countres intelligence and it is also a nation security issue.”?
Information and advice are two different birds.

Well at least Sophie RAMIS at the AFP has the integrity to NOT spout the usual MSM lies that this “Iran backed rebels” or the 3 year old miraculous line of “10,000” dead. I wonder why Wiki still calls this a Yemeni Civil War when “Saudi Arabia began a military intervention alongside eight other Arab states and with the logistical support of the United States”?
9 other Arab states involved in a civil war? Never trust Wiki!

Some 25.4 percent cited tourists' manners as a problem in relation to the use of restrooms
This one is interesting. Are they not flushing the toilets, or do they think the sinks are urinals?
while 20.3 percent listed littering in public places and residential areas.
Easily solved with the extra tourist dollars. Hire people to constantly walk the streets cleaning up.
A 7 year old word.

Anyone have an idea of how to manage screen time with kids without having them become outcasts or lagging behind in technology? This is one of my biggest concerns now that I have a newborn!
Don’t do this....
As you can see, if you look, the baby is just mimicking the parent(s). Monkey see monkey do.
Don’t use a smartphone for more than a minute in front of them until they’re of the age you feel they can have one too. Just my 2 cents.

Sounds cool and effective but this would never go in America. Too many idiots would try to shoot the drones down because of some stupid conspiracy theories they heard on AM radio yik-yak talk shows, or just for stupid jollies.
Anything to degrade people. You think these drones won’t have live video feed so they could capture a pic of anyone messing with them? Who’s the .......?

The anti-Trumpers here are a joke. Trump has scored a huge victory with this agreement with Mexico, and they simply cannot bring themselves to admit it.
That’s right, and they never will.
I can understand their hysterics thought. I felt the same with Bush and Obama in the end. Difference is, I didn’t go into the two above Presidents hating their guts. Bush’s Iraq lie and Obama’s healthcare backstab did that. I hope they grow up some day and realize they’re rooting for a team that doesn’t exist. I liked Naders progressive push and watched the Dems/MSM try to destroy him. I liked Bernie’s progressive push and watched the Dems/MSM destroy him too. The Dems and lefties are rootless trees bouncing and flip flopping from one headline to the next using language that their mothers wouldn’t allow in her home.

why don’t you read the ad yourself and try to find how Trump implicated any individual, instead of copy/paste insane Social justice propaganda.
