We can't underestimate technology. That's all.

By considering the support of the smashing majority for this woman in here it becomes quite clear that the adjective 国賊 fits well for her and her gang. After all, the foreigners are the most interested and beneficiaries of minshutou's politics of selling Japan both in economics and soul untill Japan becomes no longer Japan.

As said, they shouldn`t focus the security over an unlikely terrorist attack but over the foreigner people there. Pray for this Olympics to end with the less body count and the less rapes.

Posted in: Rio opening ceremony to break with opulent traditions See in context

The show, expected to cost about half the $42 million spent by London in 2012

Reading between the lines we can assure that when it comes to Brazil, the real budget was twice of London with $63 million being embezzled and resting $21 millions to spend with papier-mâché, cellophane and crêpe paper. Prepare for the most expensive and worldwide watched elementary school presentation ever.

Posted in: Olympics will showcase Brazil's diversity - and tensions See in context

How is it that the children of the Africans are still mired in Poverty whereas the children of the Asians thrived?>

If your question is about Brazil, that's simple: the level of lazyness. High for the africans and zero for the Asians. To be more accurate, the Japanese immigrants who arrived there in the early 20th century as substitutes for the recently freed african slaves and at that time, threated as same as the blacks. But different from the former slaves the Japanese immigrants worked hard and gained both prosperity and respect from the Brazilians through the years. On the other hand...

Posted in: Rio readies for worst as terror threat hangs over Olympics See in context

Regarding Rio de Janeiro, terrorism is by far the least of the problem. Both athletes and tourists are in fact under the threat of not one big incident by terrorists but thousands of minor incidents (mostly mugging and even rape) in a city taken by criminals all around. It may sound an exaggeration for who never had the misfortune of visit (or being demoted to a branch in) Brazil but that's the sad truth.

The series should be called "El grande dictador" as Chavez was a ludicrous version of Chaplin's ludicrous version of Adolf Hitler.

Seriously if they intended to make a parody of the original Star Wars it would be much better to make a sequel to Spaceballs.

Posted in: Do you think machines will ever be as good as humans at translating from one language into another? See in context

Maybe it will some years ahead. At least, in 2016 the machine translation is way better than it was in 2005. And we will no longer see those "jaws coming out" as Mr. Bertie Wooster mentioned.

They also prevent that issue where one kid can be super fashionable because their parents buy them everything, and another has parents who will only buy them the cheapest clothes possible. This keeps everyone on the same playing field.

This reminds me of the wartimes stories my father tells to us. Back then in Murayama Elementary School the students were allowed to use only waraji for the reason you wrote.

Posted in: NBR names 'Mad Max: Fury Road' best film of the year See in context

These people must be drunk. This movie is not just horrible but an insult to the original series with Max lowered to a mere extra. "Mario Kart from hell" describes well this botch.

This is just another "this may cause" nonsense of the modern world in an ocean of researches made with the single purpose of to justify the scientists jobs. Once the odds are the same of to get stamped by a herd of mad elephants or of being fried by alien lasers, we can carry on caressing our pets without worries.

Great album. Way better than the previous one. And his comparsion to the first hearing to King Crimson is quite understandable. It's something like "I just cannot compare this band to anything I heard before... unique"!

Posted in: Japan’s most popular kitty names See in context

From the results of the survey, we can tell that in Japan names based on popular foods or nature are quite commonly used for pets.

True! In my house there's three cats named Surume, Nori and Gohan and they are always hungry. But they refuse to eat surume, nori or gohan. They are not cannibals!

Posted in: Sony cancels Dec 25 U.S. release of 'The Interview' after threats See in context

I think that despite "The Interview" is rated as a bad movie by the critics it will achieve a considerable box office success because of all this ruckus. Kim Jong Un et caterva acting as the best pitchmen money couldn't buy.

Wondering why international press still waste time publishing any "Japan owe us a new dose of apology and a pool full of money" coming from the Chinese (and the Korean). It already crossed the annoying level to a superlative I don't know how to name it.

@Stewart Gale: I'm sorry. Pleas discount the druggy regarding you. @Kakukakushikajika and anyone with this "legalize now" thinking: Again, you're all very very lucky for living all your lives in the 1st world. Probably because you only know the tip of the thread of those who can sit, relax and enjoy his/hers marijuana cigarretes or any so called recreational drugs. Once you live enough time in a country which is in the beginning and in the middle of drugs producing/distributing net, you realize that this legalize speech is nothing but to sugar-coating things. Solves nothing but only worses. Remember that you're dealing with high money in countries where corruption in government is embedded as cultural tradition. What will happen is the rise of a new kind of international drugs traders protected by a brand/trademark. Traders which in the front, deal as written on the law for domestic market but in the back carrying on doing as before. In addition, the "classic traders" will continue their business as always. In the end, by legalizing recreational drugs (mainly marijuana), you'll only double the problem. So this legalize way of thinking is nothing but selfishness of those stoned airheads who nevermind about the long way their beloved hemp makes from its origins untill their cigarretes.

@Stewart Gale and any "druggie": Judging by your comment and from anyone who says "nevermind" for any type of drugs, you're all lucky for living all your lives in the 1st world. Never tasted what is to live enough time in a country where the harsh and constant fear of drugs users or drugs trafficking related people is as an obvious daily grind as to take out the garbage. A country where television can run news for 3 hours everyday approaching exclusively on all the sort of crimes committed by people related to drugs trafficking, drugs addicted people and by people who uses drugs "only as recreational". A country where nowhere can be considered a safe place, spot or neighbourhood and at the end of the day, you are the prisoner. Yes, that's one the countries from where your harmless recreational drugs goes from. Therefore you are not in a position to comment on the positive or negative effects of recreational drugs. Regardless of having or not ever tried.

War against this or that people or religion should turn into war against drugs. No excuses. Nothing good comes from drugs use at all.
