    Yes, 'CrazyJoe' the bras were most likely booby trapped by some 'gravity terrorists' hell bent on keeping a good pair down... who am I kidding, that's just utterly ridiculous.

    Seriously though, I hope Triumph keeps abreast of the condition and shapes up quality control on such a delicate situation and perhaps pairing up quality control to assure this problem doesn't occur again. Okay, I'm done.

    Somehow, I doubt we will ever see footage that is damning to the police force if as we all know by now, most if not all police forces have their corruption running through them. Take any police force from any part of the world and I'm sure you'll find they have something to hide.

    Remember that Polish immigrant that the RCMP killed at YVR airport in Canada. The RCMP would have got away with that death and for the most part still have. Even when that video shot by a bystander surfaced, the RCMP took it away and tried to make it disappear but I guess too many knew by that point so the investigations went forward with the video. Still for the most part the RCMP got away with MURDER!!!

    These body cams will no doubt reduce 'some' police crime but it's only a matter of time until the corrupt cops figure out a way to use those body cams to their advantage and when they do if they don't already know... we will be more screwed than we already are. Most police forces out there are nothing short of the largest gangs with guns and in the the eyes of the law, a legal gang. So sad for the truly great and honest men and women trying to serve and protect only to find themselves be bullied into silence for fear of that corruption and losing their jobs or worse.

    All these lotteries are is 'Voluntary Taxation' that pays off in two stages for 99% of those who partake. First stage is that dreaming of what you'd with that money followed by stage two of what you could have done with that all money you spent on those lottery tickets. Sadly, these steps (stages) seem to be repeated again and again for that 'high' that most only seem to remember. Kawaii so...

    A friend in Vancouver, Canada just mentioned earlier today that they have around 5 or 6 farms in the farming valley just east of Vancouver that has been hit hard with the same avian bird flu.

    The next link says they have ten farms now quarantined.

    http://globalnews.ca/news/1727092/10th-fraser-valley-farm-infected-with-avian-flu/

    The link also states he following:

    The outbreak of the highly-virulent strain of the flu has prompted several countries or regions, including Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, South Africa and Mexico, to ban poultry products from B.C. and Canada. The U.S. has imposed restrictions on all poultry products from B.C.

    I wonder if that's the way it arrived into Japan or if the outbreak here is from somewhere else or 'just happened' right here in Japan? The strain in BC Canada is H5N2. The strain in Japan is claimed to be H5 variety but doesn't state exactly which H5. Would be interesting to see if they can map out where the origin point is/was and how it's spreading.

    I'd say that Volcanoes definitely affect the atmosphere and conditions surrounding the volcano so Meteorologists reporting on these events seems logical.

    Soon we will all just be assigned an IP address each and that will follow us worldwide for all services. The traditional sense of the telephone number and mailing address will just be a novelty that will only exist for legal formalities and 'dinosaur reasons'. This change will be a double edged sword for the convenience will most certainly be there but then there's the dark side of it which I will leave to each to figure out as it will affect everyone differently depending on how they view things on this planet.

    Sorry 'Farmboy' but the Yen will not be returning to 100-115/US$ UNLESS Japan wants to slow exports and tourism which is rising at a rate beyond what the 2020 games were expected to do. Expect the Yen to range between 125 and 140 if Abe and company continue their 'plan' of semi-destruction of Japan's financial books to save the sinking ship but plugging the holes with pages from it.

    Before anyone goes off half-cocked about this being global warming or man made, go and look at the records that state that is places such as the western side of South America from Peru to Ecuador dealt with these 'El Nino' effects as far back as a couple of hundred years ago and longer and are documented so for the love of all peace on this planet, please do your research before you jump on the bandwagon of fools controlled by the media and the Al Gores of the world profiting from your ignorance.

    <http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/general/enso_faq/ >

    A quote from the next link.

    "El Niño were observed as early as the 1600s. More systematic study began at the end of the 19th century, when Peruvian geographers noted unusual oceanic and climatic phenomena occurring periodically along the Peru coast."

    "Unlike its U.S. counterpart, Japan’s auto industry regulator currently has no authority to order a recall unless the cause of the problem is known."

    F'ing hilarious and obvious that this group of Japanese are not cut from the same cloth as the police and prosecutors in Japan whereby you're guilty and have to prove your innocence. Seriously, it almost seems that Japanese regulators, police, prosecutors, government officials, etc. all have the ability to select which side of the fence they will be on based on the phase of the moon or direction of the wind. So much for the old days of Japan where honour actually meant something. What a sad state of affairs Japanese law makers have reduced Japan to. Soon Japan will be just like every other country where its people no longer trust anyone in control. Good luck with that.

    Well, if things get tough for the royal family, that living room wall behind them makes a great pegboard sale display, just go out and get the peg hooks and they can start selling off all that vintage stuff. I can just see the props dept from Mad Men showing up to pick up some items...

    WTF?!? Seriously, in Japan they have HUGE PENIS statues and PENIS FESTIVALS but it's against the law to have a Vulva Kayak? This law is as STUPID and outdated as the no dancing in places that serve alcohol (i.e. bars). As advanced as Japan is, these laws and mindsets make me sad for Japan.

    I think Japan needs an apology from China for the over beating of the proverbial dead horse. Come on already, give it a rest China and how about you deal with your own internal problems first before trying to use Japan as that shiny object to distract your own people as if you think they are dogs or something that can easily forget the recent years of Chinese corruption leading to deaths from tainted food to poor building construction to cutting costs on safety measures that caused the Chinese high-speed rail train to crash during a lightening storm!!!

    It seems China can copy just about everything the Japanese do except manners, quality control and safety measures but then have the balls to want an apology from something that Japan did 77 years ago. That takes the mind of a complete nutter to want that when they currently and have been for decades abusing Japan.

    The more China whines, the less respect they will get world wide until no one will give a flying expletive about China.

    “Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete and would be superseded,” said Hawking, who is regarded as one of the world’s most brilliant living scientists.

    Only those who can't grasp the logic will laugh at that statement. If you're laughing just look around at how many jobs have been 'deleted' by 'semi-dumb machines' in just the last 30 years. We humans evolve through our technology and double its ability roughly every 18 months. A.I. if it ever became aware of its potential would make that 18 months our last.

    It all depends on how A.I. sees humans, clearly those who write the code will have a lot to do with how long we live.

    Smell that? Yeah, it's eau du cover-up. I could see this going on in a third world country but Japan should know better than this. What a shame and embarrassment for the country as a whole in 2014. Those on duty at the time should be held accountable and punishment dealt swiftly to send the message out loud and clear that they are dealing with human beings and should afford them with respect and dignity.
