Will Family Mart be training their workers on something useful like cutting down on the pointless use of plastic bags? Or is that too hard for the foreigners to understand as well?

Independents are the happiest they have been since 2005 with the direction of the country. 

That, unfortunately, says quite a lot about Americans then doesn't it.

So, my oldest is now 16 years old, in 4 years he will be 20.

Will he have the coming of age ceremony when he is 20 ? This is weird.

I reckon they will keep it at 20. It would kinda spoil the fun of the day if they can't all legally go out on the lash after the ceremony.

I like those novelty taxis in Tokyo that know where they're going and get you there quickly. Not many of them about unfortunately.

Posted in: Five reasons your partner’s political apathy means you’d be better off without them See in context

I call BS on this. I'm not massively motivated to vote unless there's something that really needs countering but that has absolutely no bearing on what i'm personally prepared to do daily for my wife and family. I actually don't really want to know too much about my loved ones political leanings, all I really care about is how people i'm connected to behave toward me and other people around them.

‘Obviously it’s not really about guys or girls, or relationships, He’s just saying get out there and vote.’

That is exactly what gets my back up about this article, they've dressed it up in nonsense.

SerranoToday  05:39 pm JST

Well, well, I wonder if Iran is paying extremely close attention to this...

I'm sure they are but what message are they getting from a US president who rips up a deal they were honoring, then runs off and lets a dictator tickle his tummy who's just developed nuclear weapons and threatened to use them on several countries?

Posted in: Trump, Kim sign agreement; N Korean leader to get White House invitation See in context

I believe the main reason we got to this 'historic' meeting is that the previous US presidents actually had morals and would not entertain a despot without him giving clear concessions first. Whilst I do completely accept that having a relationship where they can talk directly is beneficial to all, it will be very interesting to see how this goes. However, this is now how the US rolls, it praises a despot whilst in the same breath beats down a guy like Trudeau. Americas traditional allies should be looking elsewhere for reliable partners now.

If, in the eyes of America, Trump was allowed up on a soapbox to spout political crap then surely DeNiro must be, or do Trumpettes now want curtail one of the faux great Murican freeeeeedoms now it doesn't suit them?

The parties involved are so desperate to come out of this smelling of roses i'm pretty certain the majority of negotiation for this circus has already been done behind the scenes. We will see some hand shakes, smiles and a few documents signed as formality for the cameras.

Didn't Abe pledge billions of $s of USA investment just a few days ago? Yeah thought so, this issue is a cash cow for NK and USA.

My wife has a load of metal boxes of different sizes with plastic lids. The good thing is you can use them on the hob or oven to cook easily, as well as using them for storage. I couldn't really give a monkeys tbh but it keeps her happy!

I have never used Tinder as i'm happily married but have listened with interest to my mates experiences and met a few of their 'candidates'. I did use Metropolis Mag Confidential's a few times when I was free and single just for the fun of it, so I enjoyed reading about the different characters the author met. I'm pleased it worked out for her!

Posted in: Airlines hope flashier content for travel agents will boost sales See in context

The last time I went into an agent (H.I.S) was 10 years ago and it took an eternity in there. I got some quotes but wasn't really sure about what they were offering me, went home and found exactly the same stuff (but with much more convenient flights) online way cheaper. I haven't been into an agent since.

The price of fruit n veg here is insane. I always go to the weekly market when i'm back in England to stock up on cheese and enjoy nosing around the green grocer stalls looking at the big bags of produce on offer for 1 pound.

Posted in: Man arrested for driving among pedestrians at Shibuya scramble crossing See in context

I agree it's such an iconic crossing that security should be increased there. One idea would be to have bollards that pop-up from the road when the lights turn red, so cars cannot drive through.
