Posted in: BBC lists Top 100 films of 21st century; 'Mulholland Drive' No. 1, Japan's 'Spirited Away' ranked No. 4 See in context

Don't want to be picky, but films from 2000 shouldn't be in a 21st century list...

bogva, this has nothing to do with Japan, I can't remember a medal ranking shown like that here in Japan.

The article seems to be misleading, according to the following link we're talking about "wasps". http://www.sankeibiz.jp/compliance/news/140310/cpc1403101712001-n1.htm ツマアカスズメバチis "Asian predatory wasp" according to wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_predatory_wasp

In summer we often see oosuzumebachi behind the house, near a path used to go the closest kindergarten. Not very reassuring...

all of whom will turn 20 this year

I think it's wrong, this is those who turned or will turn 20 during the current scholar year, isn't it?

When you talk about temperatures in Tokyo you should always say where in Tokyo. I live in Tokyo, and 1.4 degrees is far from the coldest I experienced this winter.

This amount is so amazing that I immediately looked for a Japanese source to confirm it, but could not find any? Does someone has a link?

Smithinjapan, maybe you missed its purpose, this has nothing to do with an iPad, potential users won't care about how it looks.
