Hyping up the team before the match and then grumbling about height after losing seems a bit like sour grapes.

I learned my lesson about not drinking enough liquids while exercising. Not a mistake I will make again.

There was a full marathon run along the Tama River on the 1st of June. Some of the runners looked like death and not having a good time. I was on a long bike ride that day and my legs were attacked by cramps. Not a good day for a whole lotta people.

Posted in: Stadium sayonara See in context

I have a lot of good and bad memories of this stadium. The World Championships in 1991: Carl Lewis setting the 100m world record, Carl Lewis and Mike Powell battling it out in the long jump, the USA 4x400 losing to the UK at the tape (I was in California and screaming at my televison!), Hiromi Taniguchi winning the marathon and Sachiko Yamashita grabbing the silver in the Women's Marathon. Yuko Arimori took fourth and I had the biggest crush on her. lol

Then I had a chance to workout there along with participating in several track events. One of the last times I worked out there was during the summer when a Hanabi event was going on at Jingu Stadium. A hot August night, fireworks in the air, people drinking beer, eating snacks and cheering you on as you did your workout. A great night which I have never repeated.

Posted in: Curfew in Thailand: Should you still go? See in context

As long as tourists stay away from areas where the military are stationed, everything should be fine. Along with the curfew, and the things that go with that (7-11 closing early etc) another kick is that in many areas the regularly scheduled television broadcast has been replaced with patriotic songs along with the occasional news update. They have decided not to cut the internet during this time so at least people can get some news and entertainment.

I've checked some camera prices in those Duty Free Stores and they always look more expensive than the retail shops.

I can imagine those wealthy climbers complaining about this. I suspect that they have enough cash to eat this one and comeback next year.

@Daniel Neagari

How could you be so wrong? All reports have pointed to an overabundance of whale meat in frozen storage. Not sure if you are trolling or actually believe what you posted.

Posted in: Only 1 in 7 Japanese scientists are women: study See in context

I remember meeting this Japanese woman studying for her Masters in Chemistry. I asked her what her goal was or what type of research she was interested in... Her reply was that she wanted to get married and studying chemistry was a way to find a smart fella.

If whale meat were popular it would have its own section in the supermarket.

Posted in: Obama says right to vote under threat in U.S. See in context

Can someone please point somewhere in which voter ID fraud has occurred and impacted an election. Something in the last 30-40 years please. Seriously, a couple of years back I spent some time googling and could not find anything credible. I say credible as I do not consider someone's blog as credible. All the analysis I read showed no evidence at all.

Think about it. Why all the GOP interest in making people jump through hoops? It's because elections are close and the best way for them to win is to curtail the voting of people who typically vote Democratic. That's the real story. All the people jumping up and down should step back and look at the facts.

You really want to get rid of this non-existence voter ID fraud problem? Require everyone to have a national ID card. No card, no voting, no bank account, no job, no utilities, no school, no guns, no nothing. A simple and easy solution to an invisible problem.

Here is your laugh of the day:

Voting fraud had been a huge problem in America for two centuries

The incidents of voter ID fraud are minuscule. The GOP, and it has been documented, uses the cry of voter fraud to limit the voting rights of some citizens.

Something for people to read

Posted in: Singapore service See in context

Not sure of the salary structure today but sometime in the mid 1980's I read an interview with their CEO (I think) and part of the reason for their excellent service was the following: Hire nice looking young women who wanted this high in demand job and push the wages down. As the wages were squeezed, the ratio of stewardesses (as they were known then) to passengers was kept higher than the competition.

Never flown with them myself, but I hope to.
