This was more of a show exhibition than a real fight, although it was a bit of a pioneer in raising consciousness of MMA movement

Expecting Japan to give advice on road design is absurd!"

Reading not your strong point? Let me help you out....it is a rail project, not a road project.

After all he had done for Japanese football, they owed him his place on the squad."*

Nobody is owed a place on any national squad and have to earn it. His performance numbers playing in European leagues alone, were very revealing. 12 games in Croatia, 0 goals. 21 games in Italy, 1 goal. That is 1 goal in 33 games against European style defenses. That is simply not good enough. Japan was in a tough physical group with Jamaica, Argentina and Croatia and needed physically stronger forwards. Very different from playing Macau, Maldives, or other footballing minnows. Will have to go with the Manager's final selection based on performance potential, rather than your second guessing it for compassionate reasons.

It was a disgrace that he was omitted from the 1998 World Cup squad."

Silly comment. He was already 31 by the time the world cup came around. His qualifying goal totals were also inflated with 10 goals against the likes of Macau and Nepal, hardly world cup quality sides. Very rare for an older striker to be able to compete at the WC level , although there are exceptions such as Roger Milla of Cameroon.

Not sure why they always play it up like Tokyo is so hot. Many hotter places on the planet such as Africa, Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia etc. Its akin to the exagerating claims of being the only country with 4 seasons

Not exactly. If you leave it unopened, it can be used as a walking stick and also a hook in strong winds. Macgyver would not let it go to waste.

Had it been 100 push-ups I might have been impressed. Sit-ups are so passe and bad for the back. The fact that he continues to do this outdated exercise without updating to modern techniques does not bode well for the economy.

There is a classic old issue of the comic Katsushikaku Kamiyari Koenmae, where the scheming Ryotsu-san convinces a bunch of pensioners that he has arranged to fly them to Hawaii, but through some virtual trickeration, actually loads them on a bus and they end up in Enoshima, but think they are in Hawaii due to the large number of Japanese......reality imitates art.

"follow certain rules such as traveling only by private jet "

My private jet is in for repairs, so I may get my personal helicopter out of storage. Would that be permitted? Would Cessnas also be allowed as they are fixed wing aircraft, but not jets?

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?
