Well you can only hope he feels the nutter effect.


No, it isn't. It could be argued that the job of retired generals is to conduct themselves with dignity. This 'general' was forced into retirement for soiling the carpet once too often. You are absolutely right.

I hear it was not that it took one other 'general' 10 years to make him understand he was soiling the carpet, but hordes of police 'proving' it not only unethical but the definition of illegal.

Any "confession" in war time are usually understated.

Victims of torture are commonly ridiculed statements likely to dismissed with rationalization.

Just as this statement.

Posted in: Researchers on a high-tech quest for the perfect nipple See in context

I found out I like female nipples, that be tiny and stiff.

Feeding of natural nipple is vital for strong immune system.

Victims of torture may also be treated with female nipple touch for accelerated rehabilitation.

Note: German clean room technology provides "fat-bastard" type nipples for premature babies.

Posted in: China hits back at U.S., Japan for 'provocative' remarks See in context

China and Japan have massive amounts of friction. Seems to me both sides could easily have start having a go at it, especially at sea, without realizing they both "started it".

My shoes says Made in China 6 out of 7 days in a week. But China needs to buy this one. That's lobbying, measuring, more lobbying, regulating and sweet talking.

Besides, Japan needs the money, and could use their tech-skills to make the coolest oil rigs ever.

The crime should be punished but not the motive.

Japan is already bleeding and these kids are:

Posted in: Japanese government mulls doing away with cell phone SIM locks See in context

Soumusho said the same thing back in 2004 when the 3G phones came.

The only reason You lock a phone for your customer, is as an extra procaution against "hit and run" with only the downpayment.

And it's not a problem, provided you can unlock it, after the contract's run out.

It's really simple.

Locking a phone and selling the key is cheap, but a procaution. Locking a phone and throwing the key away is bogus.

For the geeks 2 know. US-inspired NTT has a few unlockable phones. But are expensive. UK-inspired SB has another few. Has cheap alternatives but bad net. Forget unlocking AU altogether. It's a defense thing.

"Following Japan’s surrender in 1945, its SDF has not fired a single shot in battle."

I was gonna say o-no-dera..

..but I believe Pentagon and BOEI shaking hands is like Glycerin and Nitro not having a bad reaction. Difficult.

Olympic Security sure will be tight in Tokyo.
