    Pick the best team. Not just players who need experience, as there are no guarantees that experience makes you a better player next time.

    A classic Simpsons episode. I'm guessing all these seats will be in the vicinity of the snack bar.

    It's really depressing to try to start a conversation about music with a Japanese and all you get is "Carpenters". And "world music" TV programmes keep playing Chaka Khan (who?), Boz Scaggs (what?), Billy Joel (Hoooonestyyyyy)...seriously?. PATHETIC!!!

    Wow! Very emotional. I hope you don't actually listen to Simply Red, but I like some of the bands you mentioned. I'm pretty sure Deep Purple did have a following in Japan at some stage. They titled their live album Made in Japan. As a fan of Iron Maiden I know they're regulars to Japan also but metal is just not mainstream enough to make the top of the charts. I agree with other posters with their point about the audience being polled affecting the results. It's definitely not representative of the entire population.

    This story makes me wonder how does a dating website begin? Do they start with a blank page? How would you attract those first customers if there is no one on the books? Any ideas?

    Yeah, and I know why! It is because, at this stage, it is impossible to predict earthquakes

    True that! Gotta think the wages/salaries these scientists are on would be huge and what they're doing is tantamount to guess-work. Maybe I'm crazy but I think the powers that be should be employing engineers with an eye to divert tsunami waters safely, somehow.

    The common perception has been that Istanbul has a fantastic chance to become the first country with a majority Muslim population to host the Games

    I didn't know Istanbul was a country.

    I hate "foster". Every corporate giant wants to "foster" something, or "bring something to life". Classic examples, "We foster an entrepreneurial culture" or "bringing education to life" even "bringing service to life". Aaagh! Vomit x 11 on a Sunday morning.

    " . . . And we got to Maccas and like, Johnny is like umm, he's like hungry as and he's like almost pising himself but *like he orders his Quarter Pounder Meal and starts undoing his pants in front of the counter." I don't like LIKE.

    I agree with comments above about wages being massive but, if you promise someone a certain amount per week, you should hold up your end of the deal. I understand the players ditching clubs due to wage inconsistencies.

    He wanted a sock, so she should have given him one... to the face.

    Yep, I think we should all sock him one.

    While I hate the microscope which men get placed under for trivial things, this fella does seem to have chosen the wrong individual to ask for directions from. The database is good too.

    Miracle in Niigata. All season in the bottom three and on the final day they scrape out of relegation. Have to admit I envisaged Gamba Osaka playing the role of relegation battle survivors, more than Niigata.

    J girls grow up and stop playin "pretend" .........Maybe they should all take a trip to Europe ( in their last year of university here) and have a see what real women look like !...........Honestly !.........

    Thats a pretty sad comment.

    Anyway, the cutest thing I've seen in Japan, apart from my girlfriend's ridiculous smile, would be the crazy manga men and women that appear on packets of everything you buy from the local kombini.

    Megosaa - ;-p funny that there's so many smart a**es here that nobody seem to answer the question:

    Spot on. And now for what makes me feel like an Australian citizen, umm . . . listening to illegal immigrants explain the many loopholes of our welfare system. That's truly when I feel like an Australian. It's so typical, or does it happen in other countries?

    Young Red Star Belgrade goalkeeper Eli Babali

    I didn't know Eli Babalj (correct spelling) had become a goalkeeper. He was in such good form in front of goal for Melbourne Heart last season. That's an interesting career move. Maybe Japan Today can provide the training for him. http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/football/babalj-out-to-impress/story-e6frfg8x-1226515458828

    Jones, who took over Japan in April, added that players overseas take up a number of sports while at school to “learn different skill sets that they can then apply to their rugby”.

    Yeah in Australia they play other sports but it's not with the specific purpose of giving themselves a larger skill set. It's because that is the way the junior sports system works in Australia.

    NeverSubmit - The accused's lawyer can easily sue the cops if they don't follow the law and provide the legally required information to the accused.

    Well said! The police are just the tool of the lawmakers and anyone living in a western democracy would recognise the police don't have the right to use any independent thinking or common sense.

    Tamarama - This makes the police look negligent, naive and pretty incompetent - all of which resulted in a death.

    Well to me it seems as though it's the piss-weak laws designed to protect the rights of criminals which led to this murder. Civil Rights strike again.

    I know what will stop them. John Winston Howard. He was a prime minister who put Australia's needs first. Not like the last two, who care more about appeasing the U.N. and all the minority groups here. Yeah I gotta admit I laughed at the headline too. No author name. What a surprise.
