How is it that everyone in the world apart from Trump and his Trumpettes knew this would happen? It's exactly the reason why previous leaders haven't engaged them, they aren't serious and will just make even more of a mockery of you.

The Tokyo Edo Open Air Architectural Museum in Koganei Park would be the ideal place for it.

Except that it's not Edo-era, which is kind of the point of that park.

I take it you haven't been there then, because it's not.

Posted in: Hong Kong police shoot protester as activists block streets See in context

stormcrowNov. 11  01:43 pm JST

Rather similar to the Boston Massacre way back in 1770.

These shootings by the police against the Hong Kong protesters, just as the British soldiers fired upon the colonists, will have the effect of strengthening the justification & resolve of the protesters to see this thing through to a successful end.

That would only play out similarly if an outside state heavily supports supports the pro democracy supporters though and I don';t think that will happen in this case i'm afraid.

I don't want to go completely cashless thanks, I like having cash as I know that's what I want to spend. It actually really annoys me how companies change systems to try to force you to go a certain way, just like how cell phone companies keep changing the system to make you buy new phones.
