Considering the size of the US population, the worlds richest nation, is the leader of the free world etc, i would expect them to have a much larger amount of medals. They didn`t do badly but considering Russia, Aussies and Germany are now much poorer at the Olympics, more medals would have been expected.

I don`t think the average JT reader would find themselves living in conditions like that. That is how you expect to live when you leave home at 16 or 17 not when you move to another country.

Prescriptions drugs can easily leave your mind mutilated. Many doctors abuse their trust and behave in dubious manners. They are as guilty as street corner drug dealers.

They are fans just because they did well, just like the idiot with the Rooney shirt.
Where i come from we call them plastics. The girls should be supported even if losing most games as they used to.
Also, support your local team, not one 9,000 KM away.

All the victims were mutilated. I am more concerned about the "normal" posters here who just want to murder him.
Also the point that he ordered guns etc and it was premeditated does not mean he i sane. Because you have control of some of your actions does not indicate sanity.
America is far behind the rest of the developed world when it comes to understanding mental illness regarding crimes. This poor man need help not death. He should have received help before but the poor US mental health care let him and the victims down.

Please learn the difference between a hamburg and a hamburger before posting such a silly response. I worked in the restaurant trade for 8 years and part of the service is to please your patrons. Saying "just eat ut and stop complaining" would end in an empty restaurant very quickly.

Any links please to show that Japanese foods contain fewer additives than in other developed countries? You will find that they ban some things and make an identical additive themselves and also add things especially in kids foods that are not acceptable in other nations.
Do i think Japan is worse than other countries, no i don`t , they are far better than the USA, the worst culprit by far.

Anyone who want to rebrand a country is an idiot who deserves a bunch of fivers in the mush.
This is just writing crap to get attention because of the Olympics.
Consultants remain as useless and despised as bankers and for good reason.

Please provide links that everyone is the countries you mentioned are fat and rude.
lt may be someone asks if something can have an ingredient removed which is quite normal in most decent eateries. I went to a place with my family which sold hamburgs with different sauces. I asked for one without any sauce and the waitress was shocked and said she thought they only did with sauces. This is inflexible and not good service though apart from eateries Japanese service is mostly top rate.

The whole country was mutilated. Americans should bow their heads in shame but most still believe this was a liberation rather than realising it was terrorism from the USA using WMD`s.
