Posted in: Japan eager to be on board vertical-takeoff 'flying cars' See in context

Why define only as electric or hybrid for flying cars? A coal spewing flying vehicle still is a flying vehicle. We have the tech right now for personal helicopters (4 seaters)...in a gas or diesel.

Land prices, especially in the country, should drop drastically. The population is decreasing, after all.

Ms Piggie + kermit would also be interspecies relations. Near bestiality.

They should look at new authors too. Check out "Cyber War Aurelia" and "Cyber War II" on Amazon.

Glad they brought back the other actors in Rosanne. They shouldn't have to suffer for her removal.

And north Korea is better than Iran? Maybe the next president and secretary of state will point out the flaws of north Korea the way they are piinting out Iran.

How about combining the telecommunications of smartphones with the size of tablets? Just one device to rule them all...

Then perhaps percentage based critics. If 12% of US pop are blacks, then out of 100 critics, 12 should be black. Half should be female.

I thought the robot was the one holding the "puppet." I stand corrected, but have seen the true humanoid robots (android/gynoid)

Posted in: Mayor in Gunma tenders resignation amid sexual harassment allegations See in context

Confused. Does the local govt follow the presidential or parliamentary system? Thought it was presidential at local and prefectural level as the mayor (and governor) are individually elected separate from the assembly. If this is the case, how can you hold confidence vote to remove as he (nor his party) never had to be confirmed by the assembly in the first place?

If you execute them, they will have an incentive to kill their victims. Dead kids can't talk.

Posted in: Russia says more trust-building needed for Kuriles deal with Japan See in context

Theoretical to understand:

So if the US had taken Kuril, but the US had been dissolved in 1991 and 50 sovereign states took over respective territory, who would own the kuriles? The US had been dissolved, so which state would take it, or would it go back to Japan, or would it be declared independent? The soviet union is not just Russia.

Posted in: Abe to proceed with sales tax hike next year: Nikkei See in context

Steve:

Please see my previous post for the answer. Further, the govt is supposed to enact laws with the consent of the governed. If more than 50% of the people say no and the law is passed anyway, is that a democracy? Yes, there is a diet and it's representative democracy, but shouldn't diet members and the pm listen to the people?

Its never enough. Sweden started off small (think 5%) back in the 70s. Now its at 25%...and sweden has a much better social welfare system than Japan (or really any other country). Until structural reforms are in place, such as mandatory 1500 hours or less per year of work (covert and overt inspections on companies and govt agencies), pension for those over 60 at cost of living for locality, minimum salary (all are salaried with above 1500 hour cap) at cost of living for locality, etc.

Posted in: Upside down umbrella See in context

Its not just rain, its the sun they're trying to shield. Why not put air holes on top of umbrella and cover with another layer of fabric slightly angled? Would allow air to pass without inverting or ripping the skin off the umbrella (personal experience).

Posted in: Food seller Kefir goes bust after attracting thousands of investors See in context

In a "true" co-op, employees are members, not the consumers. This ensures all worker-owners an equitable portion of profits. No minimum wage is needed as they would get a percentage of the co-op's profits. Sad that co-ops are getting a bad rap from this. Consumer co-ops do nothing for the workers.
