I'd be pretty ticked off too but there is no justification for him beating her up. Don't go drinking if you can't afford to pay, lady.

Don't really understand this country's fascination with eating food raw. Sushi is OK but cook the rest for me.

Good luck keeping that estimate anywhere near that 40 billion price tag. Military contractors are experts at price gouging.

One of the few American cars I'd buy. The Charger is pretty wicked too. Reckless to do that on the highway so go to the speedways if you want to max it out. Don't risk other people's lives.

Pay money to go inside and lose money. I can't stand the majority of politicians. These people find new ways to fleece the public at every turn. Preventing gambling addiction my rear.

Too bad the Angels are going to blow this year. Trout can rake but Pujols is way past his prime. Ohtani is going to realize his mistake very quickly.

Foot, meet mouth. All of you who think so-and-so is better off because of so-and-so need to STOP! Often you tend to measure ''success'' based solely on an economic view. How about looking at it from a viewpoint of lives lost, families destroyed, cultural heritage suppressed and even outlawed, etc. People from the most advantaged groups usually tend to believe their group has benefitted the world the most. Many others' opinions would rightfully differ. It's not you who can tell me what is/was best for me/my group.

Good! I use Prime monthly and pretty much despise FedEx, UPS and DHL for their high fees and usually late deliveries. The USPS and Japanese carriers are satisfactory.

Posted in: Eagles soar past Patriots for first Super Bowl crown See in context

As a Giants fan, I hate the Eagles but hate the Pats even more, as probably most non-New Englanders do. Had to celebrate all night with my Eagles-fan pal tonight. They looked dead after Carson Wentz went down and I would have bet my house on the Falcons and Vikings beating them first. Luckily, I didn't or I'd be homeless now. Congrats to them. Brady is still the GOAT though.

Japan knows how to work...inefficiently. Also seem to like being uptight. Culture.

Nothing wrong with cold hard cash. I am beginning to like (again) the old style of paying now and being done over tallying things up later and realizing I am still overspending.

This is shocking. Not! Can you think of a time when costs decreased? Look for this headline to be repeated continually even after the Olympics are over. 'You asked for it. You got it.' Remember that from the old Toyota commercials in the U.S.?

No damage. No one hurt. Didn't happen on the main island. Page one story and you all know why: the U.S. military doing anything remotely out of the ordinary and all the ''bereaved victims'' come flying out of the woodwork.

Posted in: Tokyo digs out from heavy snow; transport disruptions remain See in context

Just got back home after being stuck in Narita overnight. A word of warning that maybe some of you know already - don't fly Jetstar on a tour package (wasn't my idea). They have no extra planes planes so if your flight gets delayed for an overly long amount of time by a storm like yesterday's, you will have the entire package cancelled. That happened to several groups of people and JTB was totally useless in this situation, too. Both are lucky they are in Japan and can get away with a few deep bows, etc. In America, they would be tied to a stake and roasted. I am still fuming.

Posted in: There have been cases where Chinese or South Korean alcoholic drinks are served as Japanese sake at Asian cuisine restaurants. Also, some people see sake as a digestive drink with its high alcohol percentage. See in context

It's just another alcoholic drink. Nothing more special than any other on this planet. Geez!! It isn't the water of life from heaven.

Posted in: Woody Allen hits back at daughter molestation claims See in context

One person's word against another. It is pretty telling that the allegations came out while he was in the pro cess of splitting with Mia Farrow. You mean to tell me she stayed with him all those years while he was molesting their child? Quite possible but seems unlikely to me. Sounds like the wrath of a spurned lover. What real evidence do these actresses have all of a sudden that makes the support Dylan Farrow. Unless the accused says he or she is guilty, is found guilty at a trial, or there is a preponderance of evidence, I feel the accused is not guilty. Inconclusive doesn't mean not guilty, but it doesn't mean guilty, either.
