This is an extremely vulgar comment to make as it minimizes the decedent’s life in favor of the number of floors she fell.

Foul.

So you didn't give me the one up vote?

That's over 6 floors for every year of her existence.

I'm in the process of slowly extricating myself from the Apple ecosystem. Can't justify the prices when it's just one issue after the other that won't be fixed.

I wonder if the J-prosecutors will go after any of these newly-revealed J-tax cheats with the same zeal they pursued Ghosn and Kelly.

Posted in: Japanese abductees' families urge Kishida to resolve issue with N Korea See in context

Sorry, maybe some people actually care about their families and never give up hope. How would your family feel if they knew you would just throw in the towel if they are kidnapped?

Have you ever considered that the J-govt. finds it advantageous that this issue is never resolved? That they know they got back all their abductees that were still alive and the issue is concluded, but it serves a purpose to keep dragging this on? I do feel sorry for Ms. Yokota and the other families involved...that given all they've had to deal with, the J-Govt. is callous enough to use them as pawns.

Why is it people just don't get the "space" part? Hint to the people around me in this country: there is absolutely no advantage gained from standing right behind me in line. CHILL!

You know, before I decide to purchase electronics, my first thought is: "What's the Lithuanian kuchikomi on this?" I wonder that their "expert" take on Apple scanning your photos is.

Posted in: France recalls ambassadors to U.S., Australia over sub deal See in context

The French are rightly pissed over this backstabbing by The U. S. and Australia. That said, why again does Australia even need subs in the first place? To help shut down trade routes they greatly benefit from? To protect trade routes no one is threatening? To ward off an invasion of Maoris? To feel self-important?

Posted in: Osaka smashes racket in U.S. Open loss; says she is considering taking break from tennis See in context

Wow! Osaka made quite a racket. I guess she does need a break. Point is, letting her get away with this out-of-bounds behavior is the fault of the umpires. How the deuce she'll serve up a better performance and come to grips with reality, I'll default to others to answer. Maybe she should court the idea of getting a new coach and she can rally back to her old form.
