BertieWooster:

No matter the govt or the economy, if there is a division of labour, no matter how small, there shall be those with more power, amd those with less. The question is, how should it be structured? Democratic govts and capitalist govts (with a social welfare system) have been the best societies have come up with since the first time people have gathered together and were no longer equals due to division of labour, and growth of society from roaming families to town and city dwellers.

Posted in: Tokyo Gas opens new hydrogen station ahead of Olympics See in context

Im confused. Is this LNG or hydrogen? Hydrogen is derived from splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen via water electrolysis. This can be recombined back into water as by-product of fuel cell. Not entirely closed system, but it sounds like it would make more sense to just fill tank with water, with water electroyzer and fuel cell exchange system set within.

Imagine if all the characters in your favourite show are changed out without explanation. Who's who? Very jarring. Please reconsider...keep as anime.

Please keep as anime. Why live action everything? It's as jarring as when they change actors for the same person in sequels. Plus, the colours pop more in anime.

And how will this be enforced? Parents turning their children in? Warrants to search house and check computer logs?

Henny Penny:

French prisons would be a paradise compared to American ones. Norway, I hear, has the best in the world. Perhaps we should emulate that, even if you believe prisoners should be punished. After all, it does drastically reduce repeat offenders.

Its not outside directors (board members with no connection to the company) thats the problem, its the way the board is individualized. Make it more like a Swiss council or cabinet and it would function better with less intrigue and backstabbing as it's collectively responsible for all decision making. The equivalent of an outside director for a country leader would be someone not a citizen and has never served in that country.  No country has outside directors and many function just fine...and democratically.

Thefu:

A note in their service records and removal from whatever position they had which allowed the mistake should be sufficient.

Agreed. If corporations can get away with killing people without being dissolved and assets forfeited, and low end workers to CEOs are not arrested, why treat this differently? Multiple nations have created this precendent, now they should stand by it. But, in that same regard, im totally for suing the shiek out of them. There was no regime change, presidential resignation, etc, in 1988 with US shoot down of aircraft.

Posted in: Taiwan 'already independent', president warns China See in context

The UN should pull a reverse 1971 and switch out PRC for ROC on security Council and as UN member. We'll see if China will respect its independence then.

Posted in: Yamaha tweet on instrument case after Ghosn escape goes viral See in context

Many packages leak. Just get a wide straw and insert in hole at bottom of box/case and go to town. People will just think another box leaked and clean it up.

Agreed, set quotas (black, asian, native aboriginal, transracial, male, female, transgender, under 12s, under 18s, 18-35, 45+, etc) or just have based on quality...preferably from panel made up of average joes who watch these things. Slmetimes I feel the movies selected are the fashion designer catwalks that nobody wears while the stuff people actually wear gets ignored.

Chip Star:

Aso is more of a Biden (gaffer that apologizes, even if doesnt mean it) than a Trump (doubles down or denies ever said something - fake news).

Japan is closer than the US. Maybe the US should stay out of it. That may help.

Wow. I doubt judging a woman by her appearance would be tolerated like this nowadays. Why do so for a man? Sxist both ways.

Serrano:

All countries have some sort of ban on something. Apparently, based on the news about Saudis expulsion, Saudis probably allow kiddie prn - which is banned in most countries. Alcohol, prn (adult and/or kiddie), and/or some books are banned in nearly all countries.

Financially independent...what jobs are they qualified for, outside of hollywood? If they want out of the spotlight, id like to see them try a witness protection name change and in cognito approach. I know the queen can be a mechanic if she loses her job (and pension).
