What's so confusing about split-screen monitor/tv? Plug a cord from your computer and your cable box into the tv, turn on, enjoy both worlds. Besides, there's nothing good on tv anyway.

Are you not allowed to dig a grave for loved ones in the backyard in Japan, gather some loved ones, and bury them? Much less expensive method.

I can agree with number 4 and number 1, but the rest sounds like inferiority complex issues.

Where would they like the games hosted, then? NK is still bickering, so can't be SK. The Middle East has been having massive protests all over the place, so that's out. Nobody even really watched the games in the US, so there's no real bids being thrown here. Rio already has 2016, so there's no point in them holding it. Africa? Can they even afford it?. They were already held in Britain, so is there a point for another EU country to buy? The last time the games were held in China, foreigners were struggling with breathing in the horrible atmosphere. So, what other real options are there?

Posted in: Encounter with an American school lunch See in context

The American school lunch has actually changed more drastically than this author realizes. When I was growing up, lunch looked like garbage and was completely horrible for you. Seniors in high school were allowed to go to McDonalds during lunch period. When I was in high school back not too long ago (graduated in '06), every school in my state revamped the lunch menu. The school line had much healthier choices that actually tasted better, McDonalds was banned, and the vending machines were removed. You were no longer allowed soda, PERIOD. You weren't even allowed to bring even a can to school. This rule hasn't changed at all since I graduated and has gone pretty much national. The biggest problem that is being faced right now isn't what kids are eating, but whether they ARE eating. They're are kids in the US who don't have the ability to eat anything outside of school, and this is why most schools have revamped their program and have begun authorizing trips to farmer markets on a more frequent basis.

facepalm. I don't normally do the whole caps locks yelling, but IT'S YOUR JOB TO CLEAN UP RADIATION AND PROTECT PEOPLE FROM RADIATION POISONING, "BAKAI"! I hope he spends some time reading this. I don't want to make this a pointless comment.

Moral of the story: Drink water, don't over exert yourself , eat, don't be fat, and you'll be fine.

Posted in: Is it safe for minors to drink non-alcohol beer? See in context

If you have to show ID to buy non-alcoholic beer, you mind as well buy the real deal. And no, near beer and real beer do not taste the same.

That's definitely not how anyone would want to start a morning, knowing their child just leaped off a balcony, whether on purpose or accidental or not, and is now gone.

Don't matter what's on the cover, I still refuse to eat that junk. It's nothing but a slab of grease between two pieces of fake bread with some plastic looking cheese and other questionable ingredients on top of the slab of grease.

Ironically a fair amount of right-wingers in Japan are of Korean decent*.

Haha, that is pretty ironic.

Posted in: Kerry says U.S. will protect Japan from N Korean threats See in context

Considering that Japan is not allowed to have a deployable force, I would only guess that the US would be the one who goes invade North Korea in Japan's stead since that's the agreement in the treaty dating back to WW2.

Pretty sure Japan is prepared for it. I don't know, it might just be me, but I believe Japan definitely learned from WW2.

Those kids probably worked so hard for those trees to grow. If I was one of those kids, I'd be ticked. All those kids wanted to do was share their love for their community and nature. Whoever did it is a straight out d!ck.
