I agree with fallafel's comments. In addition, sometimes Japanese reviewers of a paper submitted for publication in a Japanese language journal tend to be hesitant to point out problems or errors, because they are afraid of causing offense, which can cause them professional trouble later. In contrast, reviewers for journals that publish in English can sometimes be quite ruthless in their questions and pointing out weaknesses in the submitted paper. That makes it difficult for the authors to present their findings, but does tend to lead to good science.

The thing on her head (with twisted strap) doesn't look comfortable nor does the little green wall around her laptop.

Last few times I've had KFC I've regretted it. More expensive than other fast food, and the chicken was wet and sloppy. Few fried potatoes with the order too.
