    It's just that... the music is so terrible... all those voices barely in key unharmonized ... just talk singing out the lyrics... I understand the purpose of these groups, and I respect I come from a different culture... Just ... agh....

    History is at its best when it's erased, ignored, and repeated I guess.

    If you are trained as a military person, you are trained for war. That's the superbowl or the Olympics for military folks. If you go through your whole career without war, it's a cryin' shame.

    In the end... make your own choices...

    Teach your kids what's right and wrong.. Don't worry about what the other people on the internet are doing...

    Misery loves company I guess. Its not about the money because dispite the income they don't get to keep very much.. Its not because it's fun because having to vomit alcohol up a few times a night isn't fun. Its not because of the girls because the girls who visit hosts are either miserable also or are using the host then leaving them.

    I guess it's all about the masculine bravado. Bagging the most girls, the most best looking girls etc.. But that is about as fulfilling as a sandwich full of air... Makes you wonder how successful hosts would be if they invested as much time and energy into a legitimate long term business that doesn't require promiscuity, alcohol and bulimia...

    WilliB My point was that whatever happened was one of many different possible scenarios that could happen in an Earthquake zone. Taking the possibility of poor planning and or human error as being part of the equation is the last thing on developers minds when they are building these things..

    There is no replacement for the cost / power ratio of a fully functioning nuclear reactor. If everything goes right, the waste and pollution is relatively low also. The nuclear power plant being inundated with sea water and the resulting damage is just one of many possibilities when you combine a country built on one of the earth's most active fault lines and a way to generate power that requires constant water flow and human supervision. Anything is possible including a china syndrome type situation. Who knows...

    The issue here is that japan has to give up ALOT in order to survive purely on power derived from wind / sun / geo... that's not something they are prepared to do.. I am not willing to give up all my electronics gear, my Airconditioning etc... Why would anyone else. So either japan runs a hundreds of coal / natural gas fired plants at a huge expense or they weigh the odds with cheap accessible electricity / with the potential cost of human lives...

    This has also been around since the 1990's. I think last time it was the hobby boys or the anime boys that were an attractive mate.

    Before the above average body weight / unbalanced body fat / muscle balance guys think they will be a super star in japan.. Keep in mind, the girls that answered this investigation mean what 'westerners' consider pretty lean...not the skeletal 1970's Bowie thin that the really cool guys in japan can subsist on..

    The nail polish / manicure for men has been around for a while. I remember a big push in the 1990's for men's nail coloring.

    Not going to happen. It hasn't happened.

    I don't mean there aren't some guys who do wear nail polish and perhaps they look wonderful.

    I just don't thing that just because the media reports it, that it's going to happen in the general population.

    Maybe some guys are doing it but it isn't interesting... just a sign of boredom

    The 'Asian divorce' is not a real divorce, just an icy wall made by one or both people. Maybe they even live in different cities because of work. I have never been aware of so many women dating a married man exclusively for years. Seems to be a dead end street but it also seems to fit the Japanese professional lifestyle where the opportunity to date and be with your partner is something that takes a distant back seat to work.

    The little town is probably a beautiful piece of green countryside with great local people who lived there. Now it's a fallout zone and living there will be a calculated risk based on lifespan and permitted exposure rates. I cant imagine having to chose abandoning my only home or returning and waiting for sickness.

    I just hope we can clear out as much of the spent fuel rods and the reactor rods as fast as possible. Its difficult enough dealing with a mega-quake on its own.. having a bunch of angry fuel rods next to the even angrier sea is terrifying..

    Its called cutting all ties and reducing legal liability. Obviously someone has finally gotten through to the Nuke lobby that earthquakes can lead to China syndrome.
