This is a false guilt narrative perpetrated by the corporate establishment to make people work more and not be more relaxed. Instead, these corporate suits want to get the working masses to sleep less, drink more energy drinks, and fancy coffees, stay at the office for an extra 3 hours per day and catch a company authorized 15 minute nap on the train ride home.

To succeed they will need to merge the concept with the weird cafes in Akihabara. Maybe a hamburger dressed as a maid?

This nonsense had been going on for years. The only way the rich make money is by artificially manipulating the markets. In a year or 2 the yen will be back up to 100 or 90 while the manipulators cash in

Some valid points, but the numbers do not lie. They should allocate places based on previous world cup performances and records. For example, in 2018 WC in group stage, South American teams topped 3 of the groups, and 2nd in another. Asian teams such as Australia were dead last, or 2nd last as Korea.

Unfortunately Fifa is all about money making and not quality, so they would not use an objective allocation system based on numbers. To quote Platini, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_World_Cup, *He said: "[The World Cup is] not based on the quality of the teams because you don't have the best 32 at the World Cup"*

Should reduce Asian automatic spots to two teams based on the poor quality. Have teams 3 through 6 play off against Euros, Africa, central, South America. Unlikely they would win any of those games.

What you're saying is give European nations 3 chances. No, this is what the word qualification means. How is football going to develop around the world if you don't give reasonable slots to Asia and Africa.

Totally illogical response. This would be like saying African and Asian teams should get automatic world rugby or ice hockey slots in order to help "develop" those game. Or maybe give Japan a world cricket spot? In fact this sort of affirmative action is exactly which reduces quality. I want to see the best, and only the best.

Imagine the laughter in the halls of hotel industry marketing departments when another marketing weenie comes up phrases like, “Because we care about you, we’re no longer providing cleaning services.”

They are borrowing right from the Orwellian military playbook with terms like collateral damage, friendly fire Enhanced interrogation techniques, Extraordinary rendition, overseas contingency operations , etcetc....

Doublespeak is the new marketing singlespeak

She should've done what many a WWE wrestler has done. Stand defiantly in the middle of the court and shout ''Come over here and say that to my face ! ''

Have to agree, or better yet, had she yelled back, "No YOU suck", then she would have got rapturous applause and become a sort of folk hero......
