Yes but also half the quality. I bought a fake fred perry barrel bag form there and it didnt even last a month. It was funny how it'd disintegrate like it was rotting or something.

Fake item in not as good as original shocker.

Does it conform to EN397, ANSIZ89, EN50365, or the Japanese equivalent?

I'm guessing the rule was that an ambulance could not be called if the doctor has not agreed to it, and the doctor's lunch break is fixed. Can't have any deviation from the rules, can we...

"Anything-goes" is very sensationalist. Stomps to the head of a grounded opponent are not legal and neither are strikes to the groin area, even in One FC rules.

I always imagine they are tolerated because too many politicians and people in power are making money off the back of their actions. From their point of view it would be cutting off a nice stream of income, and those massage chairs don't come cheap.

I'll stick with Citizen2012 though and steer clear for now. My Optima Red Top is doing the job nicely.

Nothing really to see here, although the Japanese media/government will try to have you think otherwise.

But its wide array of features - while retaining its share of fans - is not considered sufficient to counter the appeal of the iPhone. “Its photo service, for example, is very difficult to use and I’m not sure anyone still bothers in the age of Instagram and Flickr,” said Yamashina.

Wait... you can't access Flickr or Instagram with an Android phone?

Yes, it's Tokyo, which is using the "Let's show how well we have all recovered from the earthquake and tsunami" vote plea. The fact that this didn't happen in Tokyo is not being mentioned by many.

Where does someone stand with an analogue TV but no tuner? If they are not able to receive the NHK signal then they are exempt from Article 64. Or am I thinking wrong?

Posted in: Tokyo delighted by positive IOC report on Olympic bid See in context

If we're so adamant that it's Tokyo getting the games and not Japan, why are they using Fukushima and the Tohoku area as the sympathy vote? Surely that's not part of Tokyo, is it?

Posted in: Olympic Night See in context

If Tokyo wins, remember it can show the world how well they have recovered since the disaster of WWII/Fukushima/DPRK abductions/etc. No other country has ever had anything bad happen to it, so none are as worthy as Japan to win.

OK, slightly OTT but you get the idea.

globalwatcher - I'd like to think that if people were using an oxygen or ventilator in their home for breathing then they'd have a generator. Otherwise a simple power cut could kill them.

Am pretty sure hospitals have them here, although in the last big typhoon here the hospital was almost without power while the Family Mart next door was going on like nothing had happened.

Should read "Fishing off the Fukushima coast should be off limits for decades.

Of course, it won't be. Not when there's people within Japan to sell it to.

Had to laugh at the, “is a fact accepted historically and by the international community” quote. Since when did things being accepted by the international community have any weight in Japan. If you agree with what they say you can pull this quote; if not you can just say that it's a Japanese domestic issue and that they don't understand/shouldn't get involved.

Also, better using MS Office 2003 than the Kingsoft stuff we get down here that everyone is constantly complaining about. Tried Open Office too but formatting was still jacked up when transferring files to other computers.

samwatters - "The amount left for food is 30,000 yen. Needless to say, I’ve got no room to put any savings aside". Certainly looks like she has enough for food, by her own calculations.

And yes, nursery school teachers earn a pittance here.
