How can you have this many people in a piccie in Japan, and not one soul has bothered to throw a peace sign?? Disappointing!!!

Posted in: Island plans by Ishihara may stoke fresh China tensions See in context

OK, the government can take measures surely to head off this move by Ishihara... It is government land, and not privately-owned. Surely, the Government can pass laws forbidding construction or development on this land. Then again, laws have never really carried much weight. Whatever, someone needs to clip Ishihara's wings.

Tamarama,

I couldn't agree more!! The fun and sharing that this picture engenders (alright it is only a snapshot!!) is so much more appealing than the hate-ridden verbal tirade and general feeling of utter contempt for people who happen to support another club that I experienced growing up in the UK - Go Japan

Hey don't get so worked up about using the symbol of freedom. It's not meant to be as such in Japan. People use the image of pyramids for hotels in Las Vegas, and there's an exact replica of Stonehenge in Australia, so what - it's for making money. You want to see how it's used for a different symbol - check this... http://www.flickr.com/photos/butterforfilm/4039425136/ With conquering limbs astride.................wow baby

Do we really need to hear about every time someone separates from his mistress or her boyfriend ?

This is what (unfortunately) passes for entertainment. Some people need to live their lives, and diffuse emotions vicariously through people they think they know in the media. On a lighter note, however - she is looking fine!!!!!!!!!!!

That's terrible news. After the Chile mining rescue in 2010 I thought (hoped) they'd be OK.

haha - I wonder how that will go down among the rank and file. A one month ban is not going to do it really because - guess what - the prats that get messy when they drink will be free to do so from this time next month. And the 99% of people who drink responsibly will continue to do so. I have no idea what this particular action means or is trying to portray.

Well requesting less head on your beer is all very well. When I did it once they gave me a glass with no head, but it was only half full. Rather than a head thing, it's a just way for the seller to squeeze money out of their unwitting customers.

Unicharm said Friday that sales of its adult diapers had “slightly surpassed” those for babies in

Wow, talk about every cloud has a silver lining. A huge demographic bomb drops, but we can sell nappies!! What is the point of this article? Anyway, a whole nation won't just stop having babies. I think it's trying to sensationalize (apart from the diaper thing, of course????)

Obviously, the picture angle is not panoramic, but the lack of leafage is a sure bet the refreshed feeling sought for will not materialize.

That's it Junior, just like we rehearsed. You much down those 5 kilos of soft vegetables..that's it..run around for half an hour or so..then when the "owner" demands the grandstand handstand, make sure that flap in the back of your shorts is well open and facing the owner, then push those muscles for all you're worth. See how the owner likes feeling s**t for a change. Go Junior!!!

I use it because I do not know it's gender. If there was a name in the article, hey maybe I'd use that. It's better to die upon your feet than to live upon your knees - maybe we could extend this quote to monkeys.

The vest can stay, if the monkey owner wears it, and allows the monkey to call the shots.

Even so, the monkey would be, as intended, free to employ its natural instincts in its natural environment. It's not for me to question the natural habitat of the monkey. Never really liked this, or circus animals. Looking after, and respecting the environment is one, not all of course, part of responsible living.

The vest is great, if you like that sort of thing. I don't base my ethics on what is cute. Yeah, I've eaten meat before, but now I am a vegetarian. I try to make informed decisions. Whether a monkey, cow, or otherwise, unnecessary suffering is not something I support.

Point taken of course. I don't live in a tree house made from recycled wood. However, I don't think I interfere with monkeys living where I am. My circumstances preclude my complete commune with nature, but this kind of treatment abhors me.

We only see the finished amusing, polished final monkey presentation. I shudder to think how they got the monkey to that stage, denying it everything that comes from instinct. Monkey rights and peace!!

OK dogs catching frisbies, jumping through hoops, etc.. I can handle. Humans and dogs have a long history of mutual acceptance and co-operation, but when I see a monkey with a chain around it's neck in a shopping centre - it does make me think that people have encroached too far into places and relationships that don't need. As zichi says I am sure the front row are lovin' it, but the ability to see a chimp clap its hands or look embarrassed, doesn't even come close to seeing them in their wild habitat. This man monkey relationship is best kept at a distance.

I hope it doesn't start a trend of copy cat excuses!! Along with the "I was too drunk to remember", we've just added, "because I wanted money to see AKB in concert"!!!

Haha....the possibilities are endless. Who'd want to see "Brownfinger" or "from Russell with love", though?? Not me!!

I'm not so sure why the makers of the new Bond movies seem intent on shoehorning Bond into the psychological thriller genre. There are enough films out there already that stand alone in this genre (Momento, Psycho, etc). Bond creators have to realize they are carrying on a legacy, not just using the name to sell a repackaged version of it. Bring back Blowfelt, the Giant with the teeth that could bite through gondola cable, and the Crazy Japanese guy with the killer bowler hat!!!! That's entertainment!!!!

There's nothing wrong with depth, but there's a trend to put this psychological spin on old formulas that worked. Look at the new mission impossible films. It was never about the ego of one person in the original TV series. Now with the "new" James Bond, directors feel the need to develop the character beyond the bastion of "gentle spy". Maybe it was the period in which I grew up that connected with the Moore and Connery Bonds, but the new Bond is, well, "messy" in the head. That may well reflect life's frailties, but Bond is less "normal", and more mythical to me!!!

I agree - Riffraff,

Apart from the last Craig films, when has Bond been a journey into the mind? Leave like it used to be with Sean and Roger - i.e. bad guys, saving planets, and a hint of naughtiness. I'm happy to be dumbed-down!!
