Who on earth would pay money for this kind of lame nonsense?

Hmmmm...  My view, this is a long way from just "modesty and decency".  Strangely, in Muslim countries where a modicum of freedom or secularization is achieved, one of the first things many women do is shun this form of extreme clothing code.  sure, they still dress sensibly and often continue to cover their hair, but not the full Burqa.

Nothing but sympathy for a culture that mandates the way women dress.

Posted in: Doubts raised over plans to expand Six Nations tournament See in context

Agree with the doubters. This is a silly idea. apart from anything the seasonal differences between N and S hemispheres make this tough. If you want to expand the 6 nations (clearly only to make more money) add some other N hemisphere teams  USA? Romania? Even Japan if that makes sense.

And then if the S hemisphere want to add teams they could try the various Pacific Island nations.

No surprise.  Yawn fest.  Wonder what they swill trey next to make it more appealing.

If all this is about is ":recognizing" top performers and artists and so on, why do we have to have it on TV?  Just have the ceremony and give the awards and shut up.

Posted in: Pornhub stars walk runway at Namilia's fashion show See in context

The last 4 paragraphs of this article are just pure hot air.

Who knew that Pornhub had stars?  I thought it was the free website of choice for fans of Onan.  And choosing all Asian "models" could kind of be seen as doing the opposite of "empowering" them.

As for this:

When she unfurled her arms, fabric hung dramatically to the floor with a reference to wrecking male genitalia.

Sounds absolutely DIVINE.

As offensive and puerile as he can be, some of his achievements are real.  Set against the sorry lot in the Dem primaries he does indeed look like a winner.

Posted in: Ghosn used Nissan-Mitsubishi venture to inflate pay: lawyers See in context

Nissan may have handled this really badly, but my sense is that CG is also a bit of a spiv when it comes to money.  no surprise if he took more than his due.  Him running away doesn't feel like he was confident of acquittal.

Nissan still make some very decent cars (GTR, Z cars) and have some very innovative tech (LEAF).

Any movie of this whole debacle will be a giant yawn fest.  Unless they get Rowan Atkinson to play CG in a comedic way.

Posted in: Oscars, movies help pass the time on cruise ship quarantined in Yokohama See in context

Poor folks.  Went on a cruise and are now stuck on the ship for the forseeable future.  Oscars can't help, but even watching decent movies and playing deck quoits and eating onboard catered food must get a bit tiresome, especially on a stationary ship in port.

Quite right to hit back. No self respecting Japanese government employee works less than a 12 hour day

Posted in: U.S. House passes measure to limit Trump's ability to wage war on Iran See in context

I don't believe DT is a NeoCon and I don't believe he wants a war with Iran.  This vote is just hypocrisy.  Obama and the Bushes were not rebuked like this.  Nor did they get prior permission or even consult when they went on the rampage ion the Middle East.

This notion that Obama and Hillary were somehow "anti-war" and anti targeted killings is really ridiculous.  Their track record was totally otherwise.  DT has been a model of restraint thus far.

Posted in: 'Megxit' trumps Brexit and Iran in UK after royal bombshell See in context

If they think that "stepping back" as "senior members of the Royal Family" (this sounds like some corporate announcement) is going to get the tabloids or paparazzi off their back they are sorely mistaken.  Especially if they still want to make money off their status and celebrity.

The truth will out eventually.  In the meantime we can all get more and more strident about our own pet theories based on our own peculiar prejudices.

Why should he tell the Queen?  It's not like she is his grandma or anything..........

If they end up being cut loose and losing all the protection and whatnot likely there will be some tragedy to come.

Posted in: Iran downed Ukrainian jetliner, U.S., Canadian officials say See in context

As someone tried to say yesterday, this is indeed all DT's fault.  I like how DT offers his opinion and numerous pposters on here rail at being told by DT to accept it as fact.  Trudeau's statement seems far more assertive as to the Iranians having shot the plane down.....

Posted in: Lebanon issues travel ban for Ghosn See in context

He would be better off inj France, which doesn't extradite its citizens.

Lebanon gets aid from Japan (anyone see quid pro quo coming??) and is widely considered to be a pretty corrupt place.  Japan has enough spare cash sloshing around tom incentivize them to the tune of a few hundred billion yen.

Ghosn is ghosn to regret doing a runner.

Posted in: In 2018, according to Oxfam, 26 billionaires had as much money as the poorest half of the world. If that's true, what do you think will be the future consequences? See in context

Oxfam say and do a lot of things that are either untrue or immoral.

T'was ever thus - the rich get richer and the poor suffer.

The fever of money printing and the continued entrenchment of crony capitalism have both fuelled this trend.
