    Oh come on! Yesterday, it was a radioactive club, and today, we're back to an even more vague "soil?" Was there something in the soil? If it's a radium wristwatch, wouldn't you know? If it's soil, how did it get radioactive? Did some contractor buy up a load of radioactive soil and start using it here and there all over Tokyo? Did someone using the swing drop their radioactive marbles? There's an interesting story here. Let's hear it.

    A strategically-placed stroke of one of the kanji ideographs that make up his name covers his modesty.

    HIs modesty was not so difficult to cover, but if, as it seems, he is promoting a warlike nationalistic stance, I would suggest that body armor and a modern weapon is more appropriate. That knife won't do him much good in a fight. But then, nationalistic politicians don't really intend to fight, they intend to send others to fight.

    What kind of club? A dance club? A strip club? A Flintstone club? The King of Clubs? Yes, more info, please.

    We don't have enough information to evaluate this. If someone took a reading a month ago, and now it's different, then we have a problem... could be weird things with the ground water, or even terrorism - something related to that drone? If they didn't take a reading, and this level was just discovered, then radium or radium paint is a good possiblity. Radium paint would be very localized and fairly easy to remove.

    As I understand it, there is some question about whether souls that are enshrined can be invited to go elsewhere. If would be really helpful if the war criminal souls would be kind enough to go somewhere else, and some people say that there is a ceremony available to accomplish a relocation, while others insist that once enshrined, you can't leave. This includes the souls of those who fought agaist Japan, and who are enshrined against their family's wishes. I don't really know. Death sounds really complicated.

    Really, so why didn't she turn over her servers?

    Because she didn't have to.

    Why did she defy a Federal court order subpoena to hand everything over?

    It was a House subpoena, not a court order. And we're back to she didn't have to, and the Justice Department backed her up. Game over. The Republicans in the House committee weren't interested in Benghazi anyway. They were looking for dirt to use in the election. This is why Republican's will lose the Presidential race. They are so wrapped up in trying to oppose someone else's ideas that they have forgotten what it is like to come up with their own ideas. They're happy to find holes in someone else's plan, but where is their own plan? It's a cordial of pithy sayings and emotional rants and pseudopatriotic aggressive nonsense.

    If the husband refuses the sexual advances of his wife, he becomes the perpetrator of DV [domestic violence].

    You lost me there.

    Clinton will be DEM candidate but she will have tough time if Paul becomes GOP candidate. People are sick and tired of middle east wars.

    Really, she won't. The Republicans don't support Paul's stance toward the Middle East, so he won't get the support he needs from them. As for the Democrats, some of them might prefer his stance on the MIddle East, but he's too much of a nutcase on almost every other issue to get much support there either.
    The Tea Party will mostly serve to splinter the Republicans, which in recent years has mostly been defined by not supporting whatever Obama supports. Republicans can't and won't come together to find what they are actually in favor of, at least not soon enough to win the presidential race.
    Clinton will get in, not because she is great, but because she is good enough, and all her dirty secrets are already known.

    That's a really unfortunate looking picture of Ms. Fiorina. It took me a minute to realize that the blurred part was someone's head.

    because scientists previously predicted that live organisms would not drift across the ocean on floating objects.

    Which scientists, and why?

    We expected that after four years there wouldn’t be any debris coming across the ocean.

    It was probably circling in the Great Garbage Patch (Pacific Trash Vortex), and broke out of the circle. There is no doubt more stuff out there doing the same thing.

    Really, it's not censorship, it's just suggested improvements in writing. Here you go...let me help:

    Koichi Nakano, an international politics professor at Sophia University in Tokyo, said Abe’s government is promoting (a revisionist) --> (an interesting) view of Japan’s wartime military (atrocities) -->(activities), and is steering public opinion to support (divisive) -->(distinctive) policies such as expanding the military’s role and revising the country’s (war-renouncing) -->(outdated) constitution.

    “In a world where animals have more rights to space and food than humans,”

    The solution seems simple. Just fly as someone's pet. You'll have a nice big cage, better food than the economy cabin, and maybe someone will take you for a walk.

    The ministry said none of the Chinese planes violated Japanese airspace.

    Yeah, because the ministry thinks all airspace is Chinese airspace.

    Does it prevent massive earthquakes ?

    Yes, it's very, very strict, and earthquakes are not permitted.

    Does Michelangelo's David appear pixelated in Japanese books? How about some of the more graphic ukiyo-e prints? Evidently data from a penis or vagina is more pornographic than a penis or vagina that is drawn or sculpted. The court would need to explain why this is. Fun case.

    “Although I haven’t studied it in detail, many things that are based on misunderstandings are written in the verdict,”

    It might be a good idea to study it in detail befire commenting on it.
