"A referee who says that he's still "learning" (whatever that means) in the preseason (of the J-League to boot) had absolutely no business officiating at a World Cup."
Really? So you want somebody who says they have learned everything there is to learn ? Good luck finding one such referee.

"you can get better, to an extent, with practice. Fundamentally, though, your abilities are determined by the talents you’ve been born with"

"Who cares, the way gas prices are going the cost savings will be paltry for the average driver."
Some people care about what they call the environment.
I never understand those people who buy gas-guzzlers just because gas is cheap.
Do you also buy 200 tooth pastes just because they are cheap ?

"i very much doubt that their figures are accurate. If they were the industry would be using their sources to try and stop this loss of revenue, no?"
No. Most people who download music and movies illegally do so because it's free. There was an American girl who got into trouble for downloading more than 2,000 songs illegally. Do you think she would have paid for all of them ?
So they are not losing as much revenue as the illegal downloads

"You have to teach Japanese consumers about your products because they are very ignorant"
One of the most ridiculous advise anyone can give to anybody. You don't tell customers what to buy, you come up with products that customers want. That's exactly why companies like American Big 3, Wallmart and Carrefour has failed in Japan. Funny you call Japanese consumers ignorant since that's exactly what you are

When you pay $12-$15 to see a movie, some of the money go to the movie theaters not just the studio.
When it's VOD, almost all goes to the studio, minus the credit card fees but that also applies when you see it at a movie theater.
