Not sure what is trying to be taught by using a orchestrated and choreographed documentary which probably is biased but not having seen it, I may be wrong here. Before schools show such films there should be viewings of any films by a broad spectrum of a country's parents and let them decide, not the schools, what is appropriate for their children to view. Schools are not parents and should not be promoting such propaganda to young minds, it's I think called brainwashing. I'm sure there are GLBT couples that could raise a child like any other family unit but human beings are the only animals on this planet that try to make it an accepted practice. 99% of nature is heterosexual based relationships and the rearing of offspring is done by a father and mother or as a group. Has there been any long term studies of children from same sex family units to see how they fare compared to children coming out of heterosexual family units married or unmarried. I guess only time will tell.

Why does Japan need to keep apologizing about their role in WWII? How may Jews protest in front of every German embassy or on the media telling Germany you're bad and you need to keep apologizing? The reason is that Hollywood and the mass media is owned and operated by persons who every few years make another movie about how bad the Jewish people were treated and I believe that I am correct on this one. On the other hand if China, Korea and other Asian countries owned Hollywood and the media then they could also manipulate how the world sees the events in WWII that caused them so much pain and suffering. Many Jews own high end German products and many Koreans and Chinese own high end German cars but they don't see the fact that Germany was as bad or worse than Japan in terms of human rights. Asia needs to move on and not ask Japan for an apology every year. If it were not for Japan's success technically and economically, Asia would still be a back water third world locality.

Apple makes good computes, stay with that and don't get into the car industry that you have no experience in and leave it to the big boys who know cars and apple can add technology, With all the software problems involving just simple PC software and patches for the bugs, I sure as hell do not want to be driving a car made by a software company that is going to add updates and patches while I an cruising along at 70 mph.

Horrible that a defenseless child had to be murdered here. I think that all religions are evil and they hurt and murder many millions of peoples with their BS Dogma and strange practices. Religion is a cult like practice and although it binds some peoples together , it also destroys the fabric of all humanity through it's practices like some voodoo theology yet legalized in thousands of years of actual practices.

Celebrating what, this is such nonsense of a celebration and the people are either too dumb to understand or too scared to say anything so they play the role. North Korea is a disaster waiting to explode. You have an immature leader who is killing anyone who looks sideways at him so everyone is running scared.

Doesn't matter what Zaha thinks, she/her firm got paid for the design whether the Japanese Olympics use it or not. As far as the Olympics go, its on par with the FIFA scandal when it comes to selecting where the next Olympics will take place and all the corrupt politicians and their construction company cronies too.

Usually fireworks are launched when there is no wind or wind is away from where the crowds are located. If the wind changes direction, lots of things can go wrong.

Japanese are not the only people that seem to get the cold shoulder in France. I studied the French language for 8 years (middle school through college) and although I can read and understand it well, my mastery of conversation and accent is not so great. The funny thing is when I try to speak French with a French person they are quick to tell me that I do not need to try to speak French because they speak English. The funny thing is that their English is not so great either.
I had an experience in a restaurant where myself and three business associates sat for something like 30 minutes after the maître d had seated us. No one gave us a water, bread or a menu. I waved and politely gestured every few minutes at the waiters who I think find this amusing and that received no results. Finally I got up and went to the manager and asked if the restaurant is a non profit organization and he said of course not, we are a business. I told him that he just missed out on at least $150 of business and we all walked out.

Before human beings discovered drinking the mammary secretions of animals that are constantly lactating, how did we survive? milk is good for cream, cheese and yogurt products but to drink t by itself is not so tasty.

Japan's decline in population is a plus not a minus. The world has too many human beings that are destroying it's natural resources and environment and a lower population internationally is a good thing. All the do gooders who want to increase food yields to sustain all the poor countries etcetera's are fools. If you took say 100 million people and put them on a planet a quarter the size of earth, in a few millennium cannibalism would be the main diet source because they would run out of sustainable food crops and be starving. The solution of trying to feed more and more people is stupid and the real solution is to reduce populations to allow sustainable levels to survive. Sounds mean but it's the truth. Mandatory birth or population controls are not far away or maybe all this Mars exploration stuff is to allow the earth's population to keep expanding with no controls in place.

You have to wonder how much back ground investigation major manufacturers actually do before they hire someone at that level of position. Shoot, I have to take a drug test for a mediocre job and a company like Toyota hires drug addicts without screening their back ground or even a pee test.
