Russia joins the show?

Yes; Trump tried to drive a wedge between Russia and China because having them become closer is a world catastrophe. With Trump out of the picture, Russia and China are getting closer and are again the foremost threat to world stability.

Afghanistan wasn't about oil it was about opioids; now that synthetic fentanyl from China has crashed the market, demand for American-made opioids has plummeted. There's no money left to make in Afghanistan for Purdue Pharma and Mundipharma, so the Sacklers got us out.

They were testing it to see if it would be fine as it is mendokusai to keep picking it up every time a storm hits

Sadly, this is probably true.

Yesterday in Yoyogi, I saw foreigners who are members of one of the Olympic teams. They were all wearing the badges around their neck and the same shirts. The definitely looked like athletes or at least some were coaches.

Of course, they were of European descent, so police would not bother even if they were breaking the law or planning on leaving the team most of the time.

Yes, because police in Japan have never hassled European people lol.

I personally don't support Apple because their products are made by Chinese sweatshop workers, but to each his own values I guess.

Foxconn makes products for many companies, not just Apple. Let's put this myth to bed.

what scares the hell out of me is how many governments, including Japan's, are salivating at acquiring this tech and using it. It won't stop in China- they'll sell it to the whole world.

China is the testing ground for all of this; next stop: your town.

Shows how much money slopping around the system looking for a home. Wonder if this game plays any better now than it did beck when it was first made

Mario 64 was a masterpiece, none of the flagship Mario games like Galaxy, Sunshine, Odyssey, have been able to surpass it.

Japan: "We were put in camps in the '40s!"

Also Japan: "That elevator is for Japanese only, no foreigners."

Ironically, this is the sort of racially charged "equity" rhetoric of two wrongs making a right that progressives are currently pushing in America.

If the right are being censored why do I still hear MTG every time she has some nonsense to complain about?

Because the media loves to amplify her and Trump as "bad people" and because outrageous statements get more clicks/views. But, the media wants to filter and selectively edit what people on the right say.

Posted in: Spielberg's Amblin to make several films a year for Netflix See in context

Also, @JoeBlow 10:53am, it’s Hollywood’s numerous, bizarre, off-characterre-castings, re-tellings, reboots and *revisionist*** ‘***agenda*’. Too much overcompensating penance for its numerous “Me, Too” sins is what devalued “the cinematic experience”, NOT just Netflix and the other convenient, streaming services.

Well yes, I believe that goes without saying. I've hardly watched a single Hollywood movie released in the past 10 years or so.

Roundabouts would improve things. They are also MUCH safer. Installing roundabouts to keep the traffic flowing and banning car parks at intersections would fix the problem.

Where I live there's a roundabout but most people have no idea how to drive on it; they still think the main road has right of way and that smaller cars should stop in the roundabout and yield to larger trucks.

Roundabouts need to be included in drivers ed.

I am sure we will hear sooner or later that it was not her first time, that she was dressed in a certain way and deserves that, etc.

She was clearly consenting to this.

We all know how some teenage girls do this for money so they can buy designer shoes and bags. Nothing new.
