The number of apologies is way over done. Get over it. How many more leaders will have to slap their foreheads on the tatami before being accepted?
War causes those without to do things to do things they would not do otherwise during peace.
If one needs to sell themselves to get food, so be it. Drug addicts do it all the time.

Convicted in 1989.
I believe in the American justice system. Innocent until proven guilty beyond doubt.
25 years of relative freedom. Hmmmm. 1 hour and 40 minutes of an asthma kind of attack and death. Not bad. I am sure he thought about what he was convicted for.

Went down there a few years back. Trains were a big hassle for getting home to Minamirinkan, but actually crowd control was brilliant as always.

My logical mind tells me that so called rancid meat is not that all dangerous to humans. Meat growing bacteria of many kinds can be cooked and eaten.
Some bacteria though produce toxins that cannot be made neutral by cooking.

**Light-to-moderate drinking is generally considered to be consumption of between 12 and 25 alcoholic units per week.
wow, I guess the definition of so called binge drinking has changed. Thank you. Now I know I am not binging and slobbering if I have two glasses or three a day.

Ozawa never turned back on his words like Noda, Abe and the other liars. No tax increases. As soon as they took power , they increased taxes. Regressive taxes on food, every day commodities, meds and life. Ozawa needs to rule.

Japan is the only industrialized country that enjoys the fact that its own people own most of its debt, thus will not make a call on it. That is special. No other country can do that.
Why deflation? Why inflation?
Things can stay level if supply and demand remain constant.

As long as no fish, fowl or other meats in say a soup or a sauce, they can actually be left out overnight and longer during 3/4 of the year.
Eggs are left out all day in super markets desho?
There is a possibility the bento maker used chicken nuggets from that Chinese company.
By the way, I keep my wonderful red sauce base in the fridge for more than two weeks. Never got sick, never will.

Waves were so small over most of Japan yesterday that I did not even bring my board down. Hard to fathom how to drown here, but yet again, I know so many people on this island country that cannot swim more than 2 meters.

I think that Israel should move all of the population of Gaza to the West Bank so they only will have one front to worry about. Then they can clean up the streets, fix everything that is broken, open beautiful beach resorts and turn the place green as they did so well in Israel itself. Desert to Green.

The only time I stop at McDonald's if there is a MOS burger near it. They have much better fries, as they taste like potatoes. Mc's cheese burgers are better.
Was happy to see Burger King return. Whopper jr. once every six months is good. No soda, no fries.
