But who will watch the 17 watchers? Is there a popup or email that poster will receive that allows them to appeal to independent arbitrator (cost free)?

Plural marriage is traditional and has variety...like capitalism (Why choose only ramen for the rest of your life when you can have corn flakes, spaghetti, tacos, etc?)

Not seeing the religion he's starting. What are the core beliefs? Does his religion have a god or gods? Is there salvation or reincarnation? Interesting...

Was the child stillborn? That could make a difference in sentencing...and may even extend to her "choice" in such a case, depending on legal interpretations.

I can imagine a Muppet from the 80s:

Kid: "my mom says she likes other women."

Muppet: "mine too. Maybe they can make friends in a mental hospital and doctors can make them straight."

Why not just accept opioid users as they are instead of trying to change them? Society always tries to persecute and then treat as mental illness, before finally accepting that people are different.

Undergrad in theology...So he's the new CPO (chief priest officer)? Well, Nissan does need a lot of prayer now

To me, grope sounds more like the American "felt up," like what kids do at parties (feeling each other but not doing the deed).

Flute:

Grope may also be a euphemism as the s word could shock. Also, not sure, but believe in japan for it to be labelled rpe, he's gotta put something in.

I think word spaces would be a good idea. Either way, Korean can get by without any hanja (kanji), but some use it anyway. But all speak without physically emoting hanja or kanji.

If you say it out loud, what's the difference? We don't use hand signals for spoken kanji, we speak without kanji.

It's like Donald Trump talking directly to a backbencher MP

Shouldn't it be a non-ministerial MP who does this with a US congressman and councillor to do this with a US senator like Cruz?

Also, had the US not involved itself in the European theatre in ww2, there would be much more incentive to create the EU into a federation like the US and canada (Germany would have still lost just by shere iziocy).

But the KMT was weakened by fighting the imperial Japanese Army therefore paving the way for the communist Chinese army to push them out to Taiwan, and to institute communism in China, become the successor to the empire of China by UK to receive hong kong...and here we are.

Now I know why star trek has the prime directive. Leaving another country alone would never happen in the real world. It's fun to pretend.

Starpunk:

How often does national guard get sent in to quell protest and riots? Definitely not a fan of the Chinese govt, but MLK and Ghandi may have been a better model for protesters.

The 9000 volunteers can walk off if they want (heat, abuse by sports-goers, etc) without repercussions as they are not employed or contracted. I agree that they should be free to come and go as they please since they are not paid. The volunteers should not be counted toward the security personnel numbers.

They're on the wrong side of the road (arrow points other direction).

Posted in: Schoolteacher bullied by colleagues; curry rubbed against eyes See in context

Norman Goodman:

Teachers in the States and elsewhere used to just teach as well. Their duties have compounded over the years so that they must individualized their teaching style and depth to accommodate everything and everyone. And they must be parents and counsellors (and coaches in texas). Compounding duties is no excuse for bullying.

Assault and property damage. I'd sue for the price of a new car (to finally compromise at half including upholstery replacement) and pain and suffering (¥100m).

A head of state should be afforded another head of state of a foreign country. The emperor is the head of state of Japan; the US president is the head of state (and govt - a dangerous combo but besides the point). Next time Trump comes to Japan perhaps he can be greeted by the minister of fisheries.

Make him unclog toilets for a few years and garnish his wages if he wants to keep his job.
