Posted in: Kyoto village dealing with poo on floor as Japanese-style toilets confuse foreign travelers See in context

I first came across squat toilets on my first visit to France in the 1960s.

I was going to report same thing (at it now) but you beat me to it. It was 1959 and I was just 15 years old. Coming to Japan in the mid 60s after traveling to dozens of countries north to south and east to west I had figured things out. Sanitary awareness is still withheld to millions of people.

The trains were worse with just a hole in the floor.

Tell me about it. The NS trains in the Netherlands were the same.

For now, Putin won’t remain a dictator in that country forever, everyone has a time limit and Vlad is no exception.

Right. And he has already signed his own death warrant many times over.

If Putin’s lips are moving he’s lying.

It is very clear and it has been said, the dude can't be trusted. In addition he is a sadist.

Posted in: Ukraine talks yield no breakthrough as Russians slowly advance toward Kyiv See in context

The Russian military has denied targeting residential areas despite abundant evidence of shelling of homes, schools and hospitals

I can't help wondering how Putin explains senseless, cowardly murdering innocent people, men and women, children, babies to his wife, children, family. Will they still consider him a great leader aspiring to go down in history like another hitler?

Posted in: Protests resume as Russia seeks to quash invasion critics See in context

Russians are aware of what their leader is. A danger to the people, the world, a killer. Every time this man's name pops up we all know, ahh, Putin, that unlawfully elected president, that murdering s0b.

Putin himself said, they have a free choice.

Very convincing, a choice between sputnik and nothing else.

A lot of drivel about litter, the latter being an ugly habit, but stuffing one's food trash in a public mailbox is especially nasty.

Goons with guns have taken control and don't shy away from killing their own people, peacefully demonstrating civilians. Unbelievable cowards -the goons of course.

Posted in: Goodyear: Attire supporting police OK, but no political wear See in context

President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged supporters to boycott Goodyear tires, tweeting that the Ohio-based company had announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS.

It's just one more lie added to 20 thousand or so. Donald doing his best for a listing in the Guinness Book of Records.

Posted in: Trump urges Goodyear tire boycott after company bars political attire See in context

Trump is really doing his best to make America great again, but he is beginning with himself and while he is at it, doing what he does best, firing of his trump-tweet gun spewing idiocy a brat who never grew up would be proud of, is losing sight of everything else that is meaningful to the American people. The poor man is really sick, isn't he?

Love Unagi! In Germany, we smoke them, eating cold or hot, just tastes so good.

In next door Holland we do too. Lovely with crispy bread. But I haven't been there for a while.

Posted in: Violators, beware: Police finally put some teeth in cycling laws See in context

Threats of stricter rules and more severe punishments are not going to cut it. Like other posters have observed, enforcement of the laws is the only way and that is and has been since time immemorial totally lacking. Put more uniforms on the street. Only that can lead to some success.

Why does this happen, making war on and killing for no reason of women and babies? Do these perps consider themselves heroes? Seems more they have no shred of humanity and are pure evil.
