Posted in: Japan dreams of beating All Blacks See in context

Rugby finally nudges its way onto mainstream TV..if only for one game, still good news. I'm just not sure why Japan would want everybody to be able to watch their team get completely creamed. I hope Newzealand gives them no quarter.

I'm gonna hope they are more about improving/developing Tokyo for the Para-Olympians. Just a thought.

Posted in: Three days to go See in context

The sad thing is that the Olympics would be dealt with infinitely better than the whole Tohoku recovery/Fukushima debacle. I think its high time that those in power took responsibility for the more pressing matters this country faces.

I avoided paying NHK for 9 yrs until one day my wife beat me to the door...now I pay by direct debit. I almost hope this comes true so I can feel the thrill of refusing to pay once again!

Posted in: PM says 'Abenomics' is only way to spur growth in Japan See in context

Of course he's going to claim its the best idea since sliced bread. He's hardly going to throw his feet up on the desk, slouch in his chair and exclaim "Nope..rubbish..total clap. I made it up while taking a dump. I have no idea what I'm doing..but dont tell anybody!" now is he. Politicians..just overindulged managerial staff.

So who should they have asked for authorisation?? And what would the response be?? "No you may not! You made it, you keep it!" or "Yes, sooner rather than later if I were you. They go bad pretty quick."

Urgency of warfare...if a soldier should find himself unprepared for an upcoming skirmish he can get one printed off in a jiffy in the admin wing.

"It’s no secret that Japan is a hard-working society"

Hard-working, no. Habitual timewasters, yes. And as for the proposal that Mountain Day be on a sunday..it wouldnt surprise me at all.

Just what Japan doesn't need..another loud-mouthed, egotistical fraudster being given a platform to enjoy the sound of his own voice. Go away, Horiemon..again.

Posted in: Anti-Islamist protests flare after British soldier butchered near London barracks See in context

Saddened, shocked, furious but…whether this is terrorism or not, the potential for individuals/groups/politicians etc to make this unimaginable and unforgiveable monstrous act a lot worse is very real. The copycats that might start coming out of the woodwork, encouraged by the attention this has and will naturally continue to garner. Groups of knuckle-dragging mouth-breathers such as the EDL now have the fuel to bolster their ranks and bring chaos to the streets of England, when in truth what is needed is a clear and rational head to consider how to hunt down and rub out those that seek to bring an irrational and bloodthirsty rage to our shores. And the politicians…well, nobody knows what planet they’re on. Those that come to our country and those already here with violence on their minds should know that England is not the place for them and their warped beliefs. They won’t be welcomed. It’s about not sharing the videos or news clips on FB etc of these scum. It’s about giving our military, the entire security apparatus and the people who work tirelessly and selflessly to keep our land and our people safe the resources and space needed to do their jobs. It’s not about burning places of worship. It’s not about molotov cocktails n planks of wood. It’s not about attacking your fellow human because his skin is a different hue or if he doesn’t worship the same garden gnome as you. That’s where the “radicals” and “jihadis” etc fail. They don’t have the intelligence and rationality of mind to realize how ridiculous they are. And that’s where we win….that and passing a bill that allows the police to drop the barstuds out of a helicopter.

One can only hope that the police are not underestimating just how dangerous this individual is or individuals are.

Posted in: City's poop patrol making slow progress against negligent dog owners See in context

They should be banned from bulit up and downtown areas completely. Horrible, dirty, noisy, smelly creatures..and thats just the owners. If someone wants to own a dog they should move into the country where the animal has all the open space it needs and all the clap it produces can be neatly and conveniently flicked into a rice field. The sight of someone picking up eggs and/or wiping their dogs anus is almost as revolting as an abandoned lurd. Ugh.

The police person could've popped round to have a look at the situation, could it not? Something may have occured there n then that the police person could've stopped. Who knows?

Posted in: Man runs over acquaintance twice in front of police See in context

Speculation rife on this one, eh! The number of different ways this could have gone down are numerous to say the least but still folks have it all squared away..and without any information too. Amazing! But I digress..I too shall speculate...Driver spots officer approach. Alerts friend. Starts engine/engages drive assuming vehicle isnt already running and in gear of course. Officer engages driver and pedestrian. Pedestrian takes off, walking in front of car. Driver then takes off without warning while still looking at officer. Nails pedestrian. Pedestrian goes under car, possibly under a wheel. Driver thinks "OhcrapI'vehitBob!". Slams it in reverse and gives pedestrian another go, thinking hes just reversing off him. Time from officer engagement to pedestrian getting hit? No more than 5 ~10 seconds. So, theres a very strong likelihood that he really didnt mean to hurt his friend. In my version of events, at least!

Posted in: Star maker Simon Cowell heads to YouTube to find new talent See in context

Despite what people may feel about him, Simon Cowell is a cash magnet! Very few people get as rich as he by being nice and anyone who thinks different is sorely mislead...Simon Cowell is a thoroughly unpleasant fellow and its his job. There just isnt any money in being a flowery-tongued saint.
