    Interesting that the headline says that they look "surprisingly" good. This implies that most of the "hamburgers" produced by MacDonald's don't.

    I tend to agree with Philip about the "greasy and syrup topped temptations," that consist of reconstituted offal slapped into a genetically modified "wheat" bun.

    Adding avocados is definitely a step up, though I wonder if this doesn't make them a bit difficult to eat. I can see chomping into one of these and bits of pulpy green vegetable flying out in all directions.

    Can't eat or drink? If you can breathe through it, surely then you can suck your soup through it too.

    I'm sure you are right. With an orifice and a tube, surely sucking soup would be possible.

    But, while we are on the subject of orifices, how do they . . . ?

    Never mind. I'd rather not think about it!

    Why is Abe still PM?

    He's creating nothing but gloom and despondency and the threat of war.

    Thanks to him, Japan is teetering on the edge of a very deep abyss.

    What exactly was the purpose of talking?

    Just what I'd like to know.

    I would also like to know what the CONTENT of the talk was.

    Without this information, the fact of their talking is NON NEWS and a total waste of bandwidth.

    If the concept of the free trade is correct and pushed through, ultimately, Japan will become the 51st state of America.

    It already is - in America's eyes.

    Japanese politicians kowtow to their American handlers and they do just what they want - especially in Okinawa where there huge military presence has been stifling the economy for 70 years, and, in spite of protests from the local people, they plan to increase their military presence with a huge base in Henoko.

    The article states that Obama wants to expand US presence in Asia. If so, a change of attitude is needed. Bluster and buildup of military force is not creating a good presence. A sincere apology for the bloodbath they created in Vietnam and an exchange of real communication that leads to understanding would accomplish this.

    "You gotta buy our genetically modified supercorn," is the wrong attitude. "What do we have that you need? How can we help?" This is what is needed.

    only NSA can reveal it but not now, of course.

    Don't worry, I'll wait for it to come out on Wikileaks.

    So, Abe spoke to Biden!

    This is news?

    What EXACTLY was said?

    That would be news.

    I can eat pretty much anything - well, anything that's stopped moving that is - and I've tried whale, various cuts, both cheap and expensive, and I'm not surprised that there are tonnes of the stuff rotting in storage.

    I don't think this is good for eating.

    It isn't the principle of the thing, I just don't think this is good meat.

    Perhaps it's like baked beans, if you've had it from an early age, you get to miss it, but I could never get to like whale.

    I can't see it becoming popular.

    Without doubt, the "ladies of the night." The women near the US bases who offer "relief" to individual members of the US armed forces.

    At a price, of course.

    So, there is a publicity campaign to give gullible Japanese people the idea that their soldiers are warm, fuzzy, loveable creatures.

    It doesn't change what they do.

    Kind of ironic, isn't it?


    Originally, economics is a woman's expertise:

    ECONOMICS: ORIGIN late 16th cent. (denoting the science of household management): from economic plus the plural suffix -s, originally on the pattern of Greek ta oikonomika (plural), the name of a treatise by Aristotle. Current senses date from the late 18th cent.

    It's not the U.S.A. and it's certainly not Japan:

    I agree with you both, Andreas and MGigante.

    Japan doesn't need TPP.

    Japan needs trade agreements with its neighbours, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan, China.

    It also needs a trade agreement that isn't shrouded in secrecy like TPP.

    Thomas Anderson,

    I honestly thought Ozawa had a chance. He was a person who could think out of the box and was one of the rare Japanese politicians who didn't suck up to the U.S.A.

    Unfortunately, those with money and influence didn't like this and he got trounced.

    A great pity.

    What are they all thinking?

    "I wonder what BRT stands for?"

    "When's he going to shut up so that we can go home?"

    "Are we getting overtime for this?"

    Totally agree with you.

    MacOS is the best. No malware, no viruses, every integrated smoothly, seamless integration with iPhone, iPad and iPod.

    But for those who are stuck with legacy computers, Linux is an excellent option.

    And it's FREE!

    Abe is a dangerous nutjob.

    Trying to "cure" a mental problem with an injection is rather like trying to fix a software problem on a computer with a monkey wrench.

    It can't be done.
