That's an awesome spectacle. I would love to see that in person.

Posted in: U.S. Navy slaps drinking ban on 18,600 sailors in Japan, ends liberty See in context

As I feel bad for the innocent military personnel, this was bound to happen sooner or later. She broke the rule of drinking off base (plus driving and causing an bad accident). That's the straw the broke the camel's back. Don't be too hard on the commander's decision, because there have been countless bad incidents happening in Okinawa from the last few years, and those people are still screwing up down there. It's so bad there that they imposed curfew on my military friends up here on the main island. All military personnel is affected by their bad decisions.

No need to apologize because Apocalypse will strangle anyone who gets in his way.

I still don't want to believe it even as I'm sitting here watching the breaking news special report. He was such an inspiration to me growing up as a child, and he made such an impact on my life. Greatest of all time is right because Muhammad Ali wasn't a legend, he was THE LEGEND!! Float on Mr. Ali, float on.

What a great way to start the weekend with this kind of news. I actually have a small tear of joy running down my cheek knowing that he actually survived so many days alone. Way to go young man.

Is there some kind of law against abandoning a live body, as well as a dead one? Geez. I am going to assume that the parents will update their story again later, since they are having such a difficult time finding the young man. There are a lot of people working hard up there looking for the little fellow.

Posted in: 4 killed in car-motorbike collision in Gunma See in context

I just watched the story on the news, and it's a horrific accident scene looking at the charred vehicles at the intersection. I think National Route 50 is the main highway in that area, because it has four lanes with a grass medium. You should be extra careful pulling out into that kind of highway with no traffic lights, because of the potential speed. RIP to all the unfortunate victims there.

Posted in: U.S. military says restrictions are to respect Okinawan murder victim's family See in context

I think the commander had no choice but to impose a new restriction on this tragedy. Since it was televised all over Japan that the civilian worker was a former Marine, it's obvious in the eyes of the Okinawan citizens that this guy is still considered military. At least they can still drink on base, and he didn't make them go totally dry for several weeks.

That gentleman was the translator, and not a Secret Service Agent . It's the reason why he was close. I watched it LIVE, and it was a very king gesture. I bet Mr. Shigeaki Mori would never figure he would have an opportunity to hug a POTUS in his lifetime. He had the biggest smile on his face, and he looked very honored.

Kudos to the guy who rescued the woman, and I assume the attacker will be officially unemployed after this incident..

I'm glad someone decided to move up the Deadpool film to June instead of August. I would have been strange to have both X-Men films in the theater at the same time.

It's a great park to visit. At times I enjoy a meal on a bench next to the pond. Nice and quiet there in the middle of the city.

This logo is so ugly that nobody will ever claim copyright infringement. Oh well, at least they save money on color ink. I was pulling for Selection B first, and Selection D second.

Posted in: Musician Prince dies at his Minnesota home at 57 See in context

He was such an amazing and talented musician, song writer, and stage performer. In my opinion, he was the top entertainer of my generation with no disrespect to any other performers. Prince was just the total package all-in-one. My first concert that I witnessed from Prince was the "1999 Tour" back in 1983 in my hometown, two months before my high school graduation. It was Vanity 6 (unfortunately she just passed away a few months ago), The Time, and Prince all in the same show. Even today of all the concerts I ever attended over the years, that show was the loudest. They really blasted those speakers.

Did they reopen the Shinkasen to Kumamoto yet? It might not be a good idea to travel to the region at this time. Much help is needed for the locals there without adding stranded tourists to the bunch.

Posted in: Social media offer comfort, confusion in quake aftermath See in context

Facebook does have a useful tool for disasters. All of my friends living in that area did mark themselves as safe from the quake except for last friend who lives very near the epicenter. I waited all night until she finally contacted me. Her phone went dead, and I was so relieved to hear from her.

For the people who is complaining about the numbers of bad actors in the film, this would be a great opportunity watch Godzilla kill about 300 of them. You should be first in line. It might be fun.

Posted in: Chimp flees Sendai zoo; caught after falling from power pole See in context

Most people don't realize that grown male chimpanzees are very strong and more dangerous than gorillas. They are known to attack humans and will maul you if you get too close. The guy in the bucket was lucky that Chacha didn't leap on him and bite his face off. I assume those spectators on the ground didn't understand they were around a such a dangerous animal. They are lovable and cute when they are young, but dealing with an adult chimpanzee is a whole different situation.

Nobody is sick of Superhero movies yet, because they are still making billions. Plus they release only 4 to 6 per year, compared to the other 100 films you have the opportunity to enjoy. They still make dramas, comedies, SciFi, Horror, and Action.
