It doesn't matter that the girl / her parents accepted a monetary settlement. A 46-old-man sexually assaulted a minor and should be prosecuted.

Posted in: Uniqlo teams up with McDonald’s for special T-shirt which will get you a discounted Big Mac See in context

Actually, "on" is not missing. The wording on the red T-shirt is a list of the constituent parts of a Big Mac, not a description of how one is put together. And let's not forget, these are T-shirts, not English grammar textbooks.

Posted in: Ohtani struggles in first pitching start with Angels See in context

I saw another stupid AP story that said he had been "pulled early." He was scheduled to go two innings or throw 30 pitches, so he wasn't "pulled early." Stupid journalists trying to sensationalize nothing.

Great picture selection for the Jones' abuse lead, showing the "Hot Chocolate" vendor in the background . Hope the PC police don't regard my comment as racist.

Posted in: Japanese tourists in flu masks frighten British supermarket shoppers See in context

It wasn't the masks, It was the fact that they were foreigners wearing masks. Parochial, xenophobic Brits. They spend all their time reading The Sun newspaper and watching Coronation Street, they have no idea what is happening beyond the end of their streets.
