Perhaps police cars should follow the same rules as ambulances then.

Australia would feel different if they were just a few metres above sea level like some Pacific islands.

Can we have ears to that respond to emotion? How do I wag my tail when I'm excited? Cute cat fur to go over?

jailed in 1969, but execution in 1990. He wasn't a minor when he was executed then.

Why not have olympics near a village in the country? Why pack tokyo further? How about shiozawa in niigata?

Wait, akihito attended Elizabeth's ascension (Or cronation)? That was 1952. He was 18. I may not have read that right as I'm tired.

I recall another country claiming terrorism as the right to invade wherever, kill whomever, and national sovereignty be dinged. And they call themselves the best country in earth and Beacon of democracy...igg

I doubt Beijing will let Lam resign. The yellow vest protests have been going on in France for some time and there are injuries too. US would probably have homeland security detain (since they handle airports) and spin to call them terrorists and disrupting the economy. That being said, China has no outlet (free and fair elections, free speech, etc).

Pea-based? I'd be in the bathroom for a while. Black bean is, IMHO, the better choice - for taste and for continence.

Why just the veeps? The emperor is the head of state - that should get the respective head of state (president, king). While veeps can go in their place, a change of a monarchal head of state is pretty important.

If I recall, the middle east was once a grassland that harboured much life. It desertified and dried, yet people still live there. Because their granddaddy ad nauseum lived there. Maybe Japan and the world will look just like Egypt or Saudi Arabia today - a few green strips around rivers and oceans with interior brown.

Do the hustle:

"However, don’t forget, TEPCO is now 51% owned by the federal government..."

Japan is a unitary state, not a federation. It's a common slip up, especially for Americans, Canadians, Australians. That being said, govt could threaten to sell shares.

Posted in: New Michael Moore-backed documentary tackles alternative energy See in context

If I recall, some 1st world countries use 80% wind for their power generation. Wind is easier as the common person could learn and have materials to build. Solar is a bit harder. Geothermal depends on where you live (and common folk can't dig that deep), hydroelectric if you live on a river or fast brook.

Posted in: Would China risk another Tiananmen in Hong Kong? See in context

China could get away with it no problem. They know they are intertwined in the global market. Sure, their shares might drop a bit, but markets have short attention spans and memory. They could easily play it off as anagolous to a US state governor calling in national guard after protests and riots. If others really wanted to hurt china, recognize Taiwan (repunlic of china) as a sovereign nation and replace (again) on the UN security council.

Posted in: Samsung ditches headphone jack after jabs at jackless rivals See in context

So what if my battery is low and I'm listening to music in a library? I listen to music or phone tv apps with headphones on to fall asleep without disturbing others. My battery would die quite fast if not plugged in, or be so drained as to not be of any use the following day. There's a reason our eyes, ears, and mouth are not combined.

Would make sense to use kanji/hanja/hanzi for samsung. Could pronounce Tri-Star however, then. 三星 = 삼성, さんしょう、sānxīng, Tres Estrellas (picture the dos equis guy in commercial), Trí Réalta, and
