This is a very surreal time to be alive.

People are scrutinizing a cartoon map childishly drawn in a movie where dolls talk and drive cars.

It would be really messy with thousands of deaths, but in the end a rigme change is the best option. This governmnet has to be stopped. The sister is the scariest of the bunch. She's obviously vying for absolute control.

Sanctions will do nothing. China and Russia are helping N.K.

I bet both of them have a copy of 1984 on their bookshelf. But for them it's not a warning. It's a how to manual.

There's a video online of a man in Nagoya smashing a store window. He is overpowered my several police. There is no way he can move. But another police officer hits him one or two more times with his baton.

This could be a simiiar situatiion, especially if a fellow officer had been hurt. The man could have been restrained but the police hit him a few more times with batons.

"As a military veteran ..."I can tell you that nobody has a 36 year career, let alone flying and let alone being at the same rank. I didn't waste my time or dough with it, it's an insult. "

First of all, thank you for your service.

"...I can tell you that nobody has a 36 year career, let alone flying and let alone being at the same rank. I didn't waste my time or dough with it, it's an insult."

Second of all, it's just a movie.

Posted in: Food allergies among Japanese school kids up 1.8 points from fiscal 2013 See in context

I think with many things concerning the body, we don't really understand allergies. I have one friend who had a shrimp allergy all his life but now he can eat it with no problem. I have another friend who didn't have a shrimp allergy growing up but as an adult now has one.

I think allergies are probaly more dynamic than static. Possibly like our immue system which weakens and strengthens over time.

Posted in: Fishermen concerned over IAEA saying Fukushima water release is safe See in context

So it looks like there's no stopping this. If contamination is found in the ocean and sealife a few years after its all released, the Central Gov., LDP, TEPCO and IAEA should not only generously compensate the fisheries but also the geneneral public and set up funds for other countries once that stuff floats their way.

These cases are always difficulut to know the truth. But just like at the previous trial when the accuser had described aspects of Kevin's house, the details were wrong. This accuser too talked about Kevin and him meeting at events Kevin didn't attend.

Faulty memory? Lie?

I can't fathom having so much hatred for a person that you want to control every aspect of their life. And disobience leads to torture or death.

You can be antiwar. You can hate America. You can hate American foreign policy.

But at least America attempted to put these women on equal ground with men.

I feel like fifty years ago this was a good policy. It really helped minorities get into universities.

But know it is not needed. Diversity at universities is at a all time high.

It's the correct decision.

The police must be really turning the screws during interrogations. I mean, when they found his phones they had all been wiped clean. Pretty much the only source for such information would be from the individuals not the phones.

No use protesting. The government has already decided what they want to do. The plan was decided well before it ever went public. Don't protest the plan. Protest the politicians. Stop relecting the same party.

Isn't it true two previous Tokyo Govs were caught accepting bribes? Do you think this has changed with Gov. Koike?

I'm almost always interested in hearing an actor talk about their craft. I also enjoy hearing about the different experieces had while in a role.

Beyond that i don't care what they say. It's not important. Your mansion has how many air conditioners?

If someone falls overboard from a ship most of the time they are wearing a life preserver. A good chance of survival.

If something happens in a submersible especially at that depth, I'd say no chance.

I wonder if the father did this because in a way he is at fault. Perhaps the son was driving the father's car. And the father knew he didn't have a license.

Choices for where to download aps may be limited, but Google and Apple do a good job protecting from malware and other nasty stuff.

Get ready for an influx of malware.

The situation also hinders innovation in mobile device apps and restricts consumer choice, they said.

This pretty much sums up Aeon malls and many others like it.

Many Japanese companies restrict choice.
