Time to cue up a wee bit of Joe Strummer....a one and a town and a three

Should I Stay or Should I Go

The Clash

Darling, you got to let me know

Should I stay or should I go?

If you say that you are mine

I'll be here 'til the end of time

So you got to let me know

Should I stay or should I go?

It's always tease, tease, tease

You're happy when I'm on my knees

One day it's fine and next it's black

So if you want me off your back

Well, come on and let me know

Should I stay or should I go?

Should I stay or should I go now?

Should I stay or should I go now?

If I go, there will be trouble

And if I stay it will be double

So come on and let me know

This indecision's bugging me (esta indecisión me molesta)

If you don't want me, set me free (si no me quieres, librarme)

Exactly whom I'm supposed to be (dígame que tengo ser)

Don't you know which clothes even fit me? (sabes que ropa me quedra)

Come on and let me know (me tienes que decir)

Should I cool it or should I blow? (me debo ir o quedarme)

Split

Should I stay or should I go now? (yo me enfrió o lo soplo)

Should I stay or should I go now? (yo me enfrió o lo soplo)

If I go there will be trouble (si me voy va a haber peligro)

And if I stay it will be double (si me quedo sera el doble)

So ya gotta let me know (me tienes que decir)

Should I cool it or should I blow? (me debo ir o quedarme)

Should I stay or should I go now? (tengo frío por los ojos)

If I go there will be trouble (si me voy va haber peligro)

And if I stay it wil be double (si me quedo sera el doble)

So ya gotta let me know me tienes que decir

Should I stay or should I go?

Would much rather sip on my Macallan single malt alone with some quiet music in the background, rather than in the presence of a bunch of virtual drunkards polluting my eye and earspace with their caterwauling and chatter

Can buy a bamboo whisk, spoon and mesh filter online for around 200 yen. No need to spend more if the objective is to whip up an an enjoyable matcha.

The Olympics should be permanently cancelled as the whole concept is obsolete. Devote the saved resources to world peace, advancing humanity, environmental causes, and medical research.

"Meanwhile, the Yomiuri Giants baseball said on its website it would stage planned preseason games versus cross-town rival the Yakult Swallows at its Tokyo Dome stadium, but with no fans in the building."

Next up, baseball game with no players. It probably would not be any less boring!

Yes, if it were big enough to be a country, it would be called Macronesia."

LOL, we better not bury our heads in the sand as that would be Macroamnesia

Some of those islands got hammered by the Spanish Flu epidemic, so their caution is understandable

Do you mean the mob as in Al Capone or do you mean yakuza?

John Wayne was a master at marketing. His real name was Marion but he rebranded himself as the Duke and created a legend.

Posted in: Japan’s 'workstyle reforms' are actually making managers’ jobs a lot harder See in context

A positive step would be to get rid of the ubiquitous salaryman style suits and other company uniforms. Many root their entire identity in this business version of sartorial cosplay. Have workers show up in whatever they want, including flipflops

Stupid sport with arbitrary rules. If they are going to allow those shoulder strikers, and strikes behind the head, they may as well allow head butting. Very boring to watch as well, (or not watch for me from now on)

Unfortunately other accused foreigners will probably experience draconian surveillance in the future while awaiting trials....ankle bracelets, microchip implants, other high tech controls. One step further would be to require hi tech surveillance of all visiting foreigners as a preventive measure with tech profiling predicting possible future violators. Am going to watch Minority Report now.

Stopped reading after the headline. Living anywhere, including your own hometown, will continuously influence the way you speak English, so the headline is a case of belaboring the obvious
