you watch - he'll go to Man U, get crushed by the weight of expectation in Japan, get loaned out to another EPL team before ending up in the Championship league if he's lucky. He'd be better off going to a lower ranked EPL team, getting the experience and then moving up another step...

Moody's, Standard & Poors and their other rating agency pals were the same people handing out 5 star ratings to the bogus products being sold by Wall Street prior to the financial meltdown. They have little or no credibility and are in no position to be telling others what to do....

if you really want to learn japanese then it is essential that you find a way that works for you to learn at least 1000 Kanji characters - both the onyomi and kunyomi readings. Your vocab will increase along with your general understanding of the language.

and these are troops from a country that continually claims the higher moral ground in its dubious efforts to bring 'freedom' to the rest of the world....

End of the day, there are so many more important things to be concerned about that effect society so I try to get bent out of shape if my local theater isn't showing exactly the movie I want to see at exactly the time I want it. Just live, let others live and try to focus on the positives of the situation instead of always the negatives. Try and endure the small inconveniences that go with living in Japan. No point in being stressed out and uptight about every little thing all the time. You cannot ever be in total of the control world around you so sometimes you just got to go with the flow
thanks for the philosophy 101 lesson

to my knowledge, a non American has never been president of the world bank.... it would be nice if the next leader came from another country so the focus is more on the countries needs rather than those of american banks

According to earlier reports, before he disappeared he lived behind a locked bedroom door where he read the Bible, encyclopedias and survival manuals

Hey Serrano, Im not sure why you are so keen on another Obama win. I mean, hes just gonna keep taking everyone`s freedom, bankrupt the country, master the the art of being a puppet and start more wars.
and the Republicans would be any different??.... either way, they are both at the paid service of the corporations who run the country in their own interest anyway

If the tabloid is to be believed, the foreign staff at securities firms in Japan are “second-rate sycophants” who couldn’t make it in their own home countries.
This doesnt apply to just the securities industry. Japan is full of foreigners who couldnt cut it in their own country and leech off the 'gaijin' image in their chosen 'profession' while living in Japan - just look at the English teaching industry....

Ishihara believes that it would have been physically impossible for the former Japanese army to kill so many people in such a short period of time, Jiji press reported him as saying
perhaps Nagasaki and Hiroshima weren't as bad as the japanese claim.... perhaps the numbers and effects were overstated??.... I wonder how Ishihara and his pals would feel if the foreign press start spouting this line...

yaaaawwwnnnn...... they both come from a party that is only interested in ruling - not governing .... it makes little difference who wins as the Labor Party are dysfunctional loosers whose only interest is themselves and their petty factional bickering.... not sure who is worse - these clowns or mad monk Abbott...

Tried it. The Taliban got into power and were impossible for Halliburton to deal with when building pipelines
Exactly - this is the whole crux of the matter.... who Halliburton, Bechtel and other multinationals can deal with - simply establishing the most stable and pliable government these companies can work with....

NOISE - i second that comment. i even third and fourth it. the absolute NOISE that is japan. everywhere and anywhere you go.
I agree - for a nation supposedly in harmony with nature, it never ceases to amze me the way Japanese 'create' noise when it isnt needed... I suspect many Japanese are actually uncomfortable with silence

along with Russia, Japan is the biggest producer of child pornography ... until they enact and actually enforce legislation that prohibits both the production and possession of this material, nothing will change in this country..

while she is undoubtedly beautiful and has operated 'outside' of the 'talento' system, that doesnt mean she is actually a talented actor... in fact I recall her appearance in Last Samurai as being described by some reviews as perfect in casting terms but her acting as somewhat wooden (that was in the reviews where she was even mentioned)...

Japan needs these cheap fares so that people will get away from their stupid tour groups with their stupid little hats and flags and start seeing the world like other tourists do.
not going to happen - its a cultural thing...
