Well, since it's a world-wide effort, where can I send money to help preserve a hobbit-sized, asbestos laden, post-war Metabolist movement hotel room with corroded pipes?

I always notice the power lines when I'm in Japan. Most people would think I'm joking--they haven't been to Japan. Being a lineman is dangerous. Being one in Japan seems more like gambling.

Gaming as media is still in its childhood. We have yet to see what it can do and how cool it can be. Consider the first 40 years of movies, animation, or TV; compare that with today's versions. The real shocker is applying this concept to the internet, which is still in its infancy.

Sorry Angel, you don't know firefighting. No other property was damaged. The fire did not rekindle. No one injured. All was done in 90 minutes. They did their job and did it well.

What's wrong with you people? He likes cats. And he wanted to keep the stray cat population down. He's helping. And it's other people's fault for feeding strays. (Sarcasm off) It's amazing how every nut can "justify" their actions. Glad he's caught.

Child co-star of two Nickelodean shows, "iCarly" and "Sam and Cat" that feature two girls in zany babysitting adventures. Both shows are retired: 1. The girls stopped looking like kids. 2. Co-star Jennette McCurdy published obviously non-kid-friendly photos.

Good! Japan is a world power. Japan should have offensive weapons. This is not 1914--things are different.

Ironically they will also be celebrating the foreign invaders who won: Communists. (2) "On this day of independence and prosperity, get back to work!" (3) Perhaps the other nations of the world could Skype their museums' collections of Chinese artifacts to help China celebrate?

Disney should go big time--bring back Jar Jar! "Meesa Star Wars: Jar Jar Commander" or "Jar Jar's Star Wars Rebels: Meesa Spark of Rebellion" or "Episode VII: The Return of Jar Jar."
