    That looks interesting... I hope he becomes great enough to have his art shown in museums across the world. Otherwise I'll have to travel to Japan to see it....

    I'm still mad at Disney... curse them and their hogging all the good franchises! They're not satisfied enough by owning Pixar, and Star Wars, and Marvel!?!? Their in house films aren't anything to scoff at with the success of Frozen and BH6. And yet they're probably going to target DreamWorks next.... Just wait and see...

    Huh... breathing modern special effects into a classical form of entertainment. The puppeteers are doing a great job and I admire their work, I just wonder if the story will be worth it. Could be absolutely amazing if done right.

    Thanks for filling in the large cracks for us Fishy. Article should be updated on the situation since those factors should be taken into account. At least I now know it wasn't because he was a selfish, over-entitled youth, but an over-worked, mentally and physically exhausted young man. I have more compassion for him now that I know his personal situation.

    I agree, what the heck happened that two trains can collide head on? Technology or human error... we'll have to wait and see, but whatever happened needs to be fixed.

    There is no such thing as atheist doctrine.

    "Religion is a crutch for the weak", "I don't believe in anything why should you?" are just a few things I've heard. Atheism has it's own little mantra, just not based on a religious belief system.

    Not a doctrine but statements such as "All religion should be abolished by law" is equally as dangerous as "All people should believe in a religion by law."

    I'm happily agnostic, and until I know everything there is to know about life, the universe, and everything (hope someone gets that).

    Humanity doesn't even know everything there is to know about our own planet. So claiming that nothing exists outside our own current knowledge without knowing every possibility that the universe (and possibly beyond even that) has to offer is pretty close minded. We can't finalize what we can't finalize.

    Ugh, it was hell getting home from work tonight. And to make matters worse I had to work overtime right after the game ended and so on my way home the streets were just noisy as all get out on a Sunday night.

    Not much of a football watcher, but glad the home team won. One thing I enjoy about the Super Bowl is if the Bronco's go and win or lose, there is an aura that emits around the city. If it's a loss, its quite the next day like a state funeral is being held. If it's a win, one can feel the energy. So this Monday is going to be pretty energized and bustling even for a work day.

    An over entitled, selfish, homicidal fool. Japan really does need to re-work its laws on "minors" and violent crime. If he sprayed graffiti in his grandparents home to show how upset he was, then yes his name should be with-held as a "minor". If he stole their car and went for a joy ride, he could still be treated as a "minor". If he stole money out of their wallet and went off with his friends, he could still be treated as a minor.... But he KILLED them, in which case, NO he should not be treated as a minor and charged as an adult.

    In this case Japan could learn a bit from US laws on minors and violent crime.

    The more survivors they can find the better. Shows good construction for areas known for heavy earthquake and tremor activity. I sincerely hope the death toll stays very low.

    you see this is the problem LOL if you were Islamic, the trouble makers are the infidel ( anyone whom does not follow Islam). If your Christian muslin are are the trouble makers. Us Athish have to live with all this s%$#

    Don't make a mountain out of a molehill. There are extreme views on all sides including atheism. Basic thing is, nobody should be telling anybody what they should or should not believe as long as they're not breaking the law. As far as countries with freedom of religion goes. Religion or non-religion is and always should be about self-governance, not governance of others.

    II've never been told there is a law that says I have to go to a church, synagogue, temple, mosque, or voodoo ritual every week. Last time I saw an excessive bible thumper on the streets was a good 13 years ago. In an Islamic country if you professed out loud you're anything but muslim, good luck with the persecution.

    @ Nessie, thanks for giving them the side by side comparison. I've been saying this since forever, but I doubt they'll ever get it. Comparing Mohammed's actions as a religious founder to Jesus or Buddha is like comparing apples and oranges. All 3 are major religions in the world today, but one of them is causing the most trouble because of their founder's own beliefs and historical actions.

    Remember the wonderful billboards being posted a while ago in NYC about how Mohammed stood up for women's rights, and human rights? Biggest farce ever.

    Now that there is a Black Barbie, will there ever be a Latina Barbie? Will they ever have a Native Barbie? How about a transgendered Barbie? What about an Asian Barbie?

    Look closely at the pictures, there is both a close to Latina and an Asian Barbie. I'm even seeing an Irish(?) Barbie. Although I don't see a Native American Barbie, and East Indian Barbie or a Russian/Ukranian/Polish etc Barbie.

    While I like this move, they'll still be relying on how many purchases of certain types of barbies will go. Chubby Barbie will be a hit with collectors but will be probably be phased out making it a super rare collectable. Depending on how things go in sales, I think collectors will be all over each of these dolls though.

    Not my kind of "art" but figurine's can be considered art. Not bad for a figurine though. I still prefer the prints of FINE art I've received by the artist, Haruyo Morita. That's some pretty modern/traditional Japanese art.

    From that comment, I'm guessing you don't actually know what Islam's core teachings are.

    I obviously know much more than you do, or you wouldn't have made your comment. All you have to do is read the history of Mohammed. That's all you have to do, which you haven't done or you'd know he was not at all the nice little upstanding religious icon you believe him to be.

    Historical fact, Mohammed started out with peaceful intention but became increasingly violent. Try and prove that fact wrong and see where it leads.

    Good people are good people regardless of their religion. Just that Islam's core teachings don't promote people doing good things. I which is why I'm so critical of it.

    A collapse of Kim's government could see millions of starving North Koreans rushing into Chinese and South Korean territories. Are you going to help fund the feeding and clothing of these people?

    Or a collapse of Kim's government could see a unified Korea and focus on improving the Northern region? The funding that was originally given to NK to help their people could actually be distributed properly to them as was originally intended?

    Nice to see those old planes up there though, it's like a rare soviet-era classic car rally.

    True, but it's smart to not have to use your most valuable new equipment if your old equipment can still get the job done. lol.

    Really though, is anyone here saying that Russia needs to put boots on the ground? Anyone? Only the US? Really?

    But you still didn't answer the question - how are you, as a black man, getting your house in order?

    That's easy for me, and I'm not answering for Alhaape. I attempt to guide local black youths to make wiser choices, become better people, and motivate them to try to live better lives. Especially when I see them doing something stupid that could put them counter from the law. I am a mentor when needed to all youths regardless of race when they are putting themselves in situations that can cause harm to themselves or others, and can result in severe life consequences. Doesn't matter who it is or where I am, I will intervene if I see someone doing something wrong, or against the law, or really f'ing up something. There are also many community leaders that strive for the same thing with the same methods.

    More muslim's can do this as well as far as Islamic teaching goes, some have, but still receive death threats, prosecution, and more for. Imam's are considered their community leaders and need to pass on to their mosque attendants that each country has laws that supercede their religious laws. And as I said before, you used a bad analogy. Islam needs to be reformed, no if ands or buts about it.
