Posted in: Stay warm with Thanko’s washable heater vest See in context

My body's ability to keep itself warm in winter is not helped by a battery- heated coat. The battery-heated coat will weaken considerably my body's naturally assisted ability to keep warm when insulated by a goose-down or sheep-wool coat.

What will happen to me when... in the height of winter... in the coldest province in Canada... I am far away... alone... the temperature drops to minus 35 Celsius and......the battery conks out? I shall not be able to answer that question because, even if an ice statue's mouth can open,

its tongue is frozen.

When Stockholm creates a Nobel War Prize worth a million times the prize money of the Nobel Peace Prize with the help of NATO countries and award the Prize to Ukraine's Prime Minister Zelensky to drive Putin completely absolutely out of his beautiful country of sun flowers blue sky and beutiful peaceful people, Mr Nobel would wear a happy smile in his grave.

Posted in: New exhibition at Stonehenge probes Japan's prehistoric cultures See in context

How were the stones weighing tons placed to stand upright? We do not know. How were the Pyramids built? We do not know. We do know how the Great Wall of China streching thousands of miles was built. Many workers died building the Great Wall of China. Very likely many workers also died building the Pryamids and Stonehenge.

Posted in: New exhibition at Stonehenge probes Japan's prehistoric cultures See in context

Stonehenge in England and similar stone circles in Japan are mysteries which can never be solved and they had better remain unsolved mysteries becaise once solved mysteries are lost and they are no longer mysteries and no one would be interested in them any more.

Posted in: Tokyo Metro adds platform display showing where least crowded parts of the next train will be See in context

GBR48,

Really ? "Some rush hour trains in Tokio may involve more intimacy than passengers marraiges?" Tokio must be a very crowded city with children born in the metro grow up in the metro and go to school in the metro.

Posted in: Tokyo Metro adds platform display showing where least crowded parts of the next train will be See in context

In Canada, Montreal's Metro is beginning to introduce what I may describe as: the one loooooong carraige train. By that I mean: passengers can walk from... the first carraige to... the last carraige. Or, from the last carraige ...to the first carraige. Or, from any carraige... to any carraige. The result ? No more crowded carraiges and, every passenger is pleased. Or, one loooooong crowded carraige and, every passenger is displeased.

Wallace,

It does not "look like" the Junta wants to kill her in prison.

The Junta WILL kill her. Can the United Nations or any country in the world not save Aung San Suu Kyi? Approaching her eighties, time is running out for her. Can the UN not save her?

A positive sign. A small sign. But, very good sign. The meeting could have taken place at a dinner table where, Chinese Ambassador Kong Yuanyou could have toasted Japan Business Federation CEO Masakazu with saki. And, Masakazu could have toasted Kong with rice wine.

While she is visiting Japan to attend the fubereal of former Prime Minister of Japan, Mr Abe, American Vice President Harris is most unwise to be saying anti-China words about Chna's natural reaction to Nancy Pelosi's uncalled-for visit to Taiwan. She is stepping on the tail of the dragon.

Posted in: Plastic garbage covers Central American rivers, lakes and beaches See in context

There is the shockingly sad picture of a beautiful horse drinking water among a pool of garbage in this article. Not only are countries in Central America filling up with plastic filth. Even in 'clean' Canada, I have seen plastic waste in the world's most beautiful lakes in the north of Quebec. Not a lot. But enough to be worrying. And, not enough people know about it. As 'Little drops of water make a mighty oean' the day will come when not only every country in the world will have waters filling up with plastic and other garbage but, our great oceans will be increasingly contaminated. There is already an 'island' of plastic garbage the size of France in the Pacific Ocean.

Posted in: Abe's controversial state funeral may backfire on Kishida See in context

As state funereals are for royality, Fumio Kishida should have given more consideration to the matter of a state funereal for former Prime Minister Abe. Also, the great cost of a state funereal should have discouraged him.

However what's done cannot be undone. Fumio Kishida must now do what he can to mitigate the harm done to his so far very good reputation as Japan's Prime Minister.

Posted in: What advantages does marriage offer that a single lifestyle doesn't? See in context

Marraige is mainly and only a contract. Unmarried couples usually trust each other explicitly. They do not need to put their signatures on a piece of paper. They are not bound by anything. Except their love for each other. And their trust in each other. They would be and, must be freer and happier than most married couples. The country's law should be adjusted to accomodate their freedom of life's choice equal to married couples.

Why do men who are physically stronger, more powerful and, bigger than women, often beat their wives all over the world? Does this unreasoning brutal behaviour carry us back to the time when we lived in Caves? And men beat a woman of his choice unconcious in order to carry her back to his cave to impregnate her with their first child?
