Shanghai Skeptic comments

Posted in: Japanese couples increasingly begin to arrange prenuptial agreements See in context

Good , all marriages are is hedging a bet against loneliness and for most women a way to secure resources and social status . Love is a fairytale always has been . Love is a great word to reflect hope and dreams but not any of the effort . I insist on a pre-nup that I can amend yearly to stipulate milestones for my wife to reach in all aspects of life in order for her to receive the compensation she might want .

Yeah , I live close to the temple and for the most part it is the bad manners and lack of awareness of the Chinese tourists . . I’ve had friends from China who I’ve taken to visit the temple try to get angry and hit the deer because they beg so insistently. Lived in China over 20 years the lack of self awareness and understanding of normal social norms is severely lacking in large swaths of that country .

as one of those idiot riders who lane splits my biggest concern is people eating lunch , on phones sending msg, people checking reports and all the other lack of attention cage drives partake in . Bikers have no protection from idiots disengaged from actually driving.

Doesn’t trump expect more from NATO or even thinks it’s better to withdraw from it all together ? If so how does pelosi flying there on my dime work ? As to any security briefing don’t they have secure video conferencing? Fluff anti trump piece rather like most news these days .

1 Good Bad kurumazakaNOV. 04, 2014 - 04:34PM JST I never saw what the big deal about Yamazaki was. Then again. I wasn't drinking a 35 year...For me, I prefer the Nikka line or pretty much anything from Ichiro's Malt, though none of it beats a bottom of the line Ardbeg 10 or Laphroiag Quarter Cask

You sir have it right, Japanese do put out a nice product but still can't beat an Islay
