This is a nice picture. I wonder if the two women are friends, or if getting used to foreign customs is just what first-ladies (or the non-America equivalent) are expected to do.

I'm not a fan of guns at all, but even I looked at guns as a kid and went 'Mommy! I wanna touch it!' Kids are curious. It's better to let them satisfy their curiosity and be properly educated about gun safety then pretend guns don't exist.

Thank you for this fantastic article. This is really good to know and a great thing to study when learning kanji names. I do admit, however, when I saw Kobayashi, competitive eating wasn't my first thought. Kobayashi Maru. May you live long and prosper!

Posted in: Masked hero helps carry bags, babies up and down Tokyo subway stairs See in context

I was a little mislead by this story's title. When I hear/read "Masked Hero" I think of Batman or even Kick Ass, someone who fights crime by night and makes a city safe.

If you think being a hero is just beating up people who do bad things, you don't know what a real hero is.

So a group of guys mugged someone and everyone's focus is on 'OMG I don't like AKB!' Priorities: They are not straight.

Disasters do get a lot of interest. Speaking of, did you know an Australian businessman is building a replica of the Titanic? There will be some changes, though. Lifeboats come to mind.

Aren't all of these pretty obvious? Especially the last one. Keeping in mind physical limits is nice though. No, John, I don't want to go hiking. I never EVER want to go hiking.

Jeeze, I'm American and I would complain about a lot of these things. This isn't our American 'culture', it's poor service!

Posted in: Man in wheelchair struck, killed by train at railway crossing in Kobe See in context

To those of you saying it should be mandatory to help people across the tracks: That is a completely overreaction and worse, an insult to those in wheelchairs. Not every person in a wheelchair wants to be dependent on someone else every minute of their waking life. By saying that, you're saying people in wheel chairs shouldn't be allowed out of the house on their own. That's incredibly insulting.

Posted in: Snowden walks free in Russia; Obama-Putin summit in doubt See in context

For those of you thinking Putin is all about doing the right thing, that is not what this is about. This is an easy way for Russia to say 'Hey, US! You don't control us! We don't care what you think!' and win political points while suffering no actual repercussions. Obama has made it very clear he doesn't really care about Snowden and isn't going to take action, meaning that this is a perfect way for Russia to show off a little without making any real political enemies.

Posted in: Manning convicted of espionage, but not of aiding enemy See in context

On the one hand, I approve of wikileaks because I don't like the government keeping secrets. On the other, wikileaks is giving out the name of spies and putting a lot of people in danger. Not to mention, despite how much we hate it, there are certain parts of the government (only certain parts) that should be kept secret.

Posted in: New immigration laws hinder some married expats returning to UK See in context

"Poor people come to the USA, and to EU countries and immediately get assistance" HAH. Which country is that? Because if you were to step away from your 3 car garage, born-in-America, Fox-news watching paradise, you would realize illegal immigrants put way more into the economy than they take out. If you're illegal, you get no government handouts, but still pay sales tax and income tax. Not to mention paying for SS you will NEVER receive. And, psh, it's not like we need them. Just because we have hundreds of jobs down here unfilled and vegetables rotting in the fields because no one will pick them when anti-illegal employment rules were put into practice doesn't mean Americans won't do those jobs! Oh wait, yes it does! Because they AREN'T doing them.

@ falseflagsteve As a feminist, what does this even have to do with feminism? I mean, they're objectifying themselves, that's something. But they're very aware they're doing it. Are you even aware of what feminism is? At all? places dictionary in front of

Unifying North and South Korea at this point would be like unifying America and Mexico. They've become two very different cultures.

I think the people who thought he would get the death penalty at all were morons. It's America. There's a difference between 'squirrely and incompetent' and 'Darth Vader.'

I'd say the job was less of an issue than the fact that she kept it hidden so she'd have spending money. How can a marriage exist without trust?
