Aren't some of the characters not Japanese? I have yet to meet a non-Japanese with a Japanese name.

"Botox has frozen the faces of countless Hollywood stars", I have seen some Asian stars as well. Their faces look very much like plastic - not good at all. If you get old, then accept it. While at it, ask for senior discount.

It does not look appetizing at all.

Even Chinese themselves do not purchase foods with made in China label. Google Chinese fake foods and you will find loads of images/videos showing those fake foods, etc. Never mind rotten meat, industrial strength chemicals etc. have also been reported being use.

Don't like smoke and also do not like strong perfume (if anyone could smell the perfume from 3 feet away, then it is too much to mask off the person's BO). My nose is way too sensitive for those.
Just put them into a air-tight room and have them smoke all they want.

Costs too much and really no financial benefit for the hosting country. Except for them to brag or show off. Some countries and their citizens are getting smart, that' why some of them withdrew their bids to host the 2022 winter Olympic, from 6 down to 4.

Probably not the first time she met face to face with the guy; otherwise, why would anyone would meet a person in his/her own home for the first time? Unless one is running some home based business.

Another prove that men's memories are like RAM in computer, it is gone once power is off. And, women's are like hard drive, they will recall it for as long as it needs.

Actually, any electric conductor is affected by eddy current. If you happen to have those hard drive magnets, when you drop an aluminum ring through it, you will see the rate of decent is a lot slower. If I remember right, those rocket power speed car that they use to break the speed record in salt like, they also use similar mechanism as braking in addition to the parachute as conventional braking system (brake pads) is useless with that speed.

5 and 7 are not Japan only. 3 is kind of dangerous as the person could be carrying drugs into countries that make drug trafficking a capital punishment offense. For no.1, does a human taste pallets same as a dog's. Do not know it is an upgrade for dogs or an insult to the tester.

Make sense but from the other pictures shown, they are electronic toy. There is not much of creativity encouragement involve except the human anatomy one that will actually teach something. Just give the kid a card board box and see the imaginations run wild.

I had a cat when I was a kid. I remember it jumped into the water and got itself wet when it got too hot and also lay down on the ceramic tiles floor during those days.

Used to like coke, but not so often now. The only time I like now is during winter when I was clearing the snow outside. Then I will put a can in the snow and drink it after that many hours of shuffling. By that time, some of it had turned into slush. I like the feeling of when it hits the throat.

I have seen a motor attached to a friction wheel against the bicycle wheel to generate power for front light when I was very very young. I do not see any of those anymore today. So, is this just like re-inventing the wheel?

What so embarrass about? Better than having the kid launch into the road and hit by a car. I have seen a toddler just ran across the street couple of weeks ago and the car had to brake really hard to avoid hitting the child. The mother could just scream to toddle to stop....and hope that the kid did not get hit.

Just watched it this past weekend in with my sons. Kind of too long for my taste. My wife almost felt asleep. Too many holes in the plot.
