Keeps bikes low and dry and away from vandals and thieves. It will probably reach my backward neighborhood in about 50 years and I'll be pushing up daisies long before rthen.

It was about time 50 years ago but it will never go away. They like juvenile b.s. like this so they can throw the usual stereotypes at you. Perception is usually more important than reality to most here. By the way, I'm a Libra.

Don't like most things Mitsubishi makes but I am looking forward to riding in one of these. You rarely get to ride in new jets, especially when flying an American airline.

Don't blame the innkeeper one bit. The idiot deserved it. Too bad he didn't get a chance to bash the whole lot of them. I've meted out some street justice to a couple of them on occasion myself. The cops will come to your house if they hear even a tiny bit of sound from the stereo but I rarely see them do anything to these punks. Charles Bronson would be proud of this guy.

This was featured on the Discovery Channel. Many big metropolitan areas are employing this type of system or comparable ones to ward off flooding.

Good on them for not buying in. The IOC, FIFA, IMF, NCAA and most of the governing bodies in sports and finance are just a bunch of money hungry corrupt fat-cats.

What the heck is a 'jeanist?" Just another example of why many Japanese have a hard ime learning proper English. Please stop making up nonsensical terms.

PETA should change their acronym to PITA (pain in the a_ _). Maybe if they tried some meat they wouldn't be wound so tightly. No mustard on my tree rodent burger, please.

My DNA must have changed since my early-twenties. I drank no coffee up to that time but now I drink about a cup a day in cool to cold weather.

I've always wanted to fly Virgin America as their good service is well known, but, for the very reasons the article stated, I haven't been able. Last time I traveled to the States, I had to fly an airline which I have loathed for the past thirty years, and, predictably, their service was bad. Too bad for the consumer that we have to be charged out the yang just so these companies can turn a profit when they treat us like cattle.

Pretty sad lifestyle. Nothing in that article says 'happiness,' even during the boom years.

Tokyo will never be a '24-7' metro like my hometown, New York. It's bad enough that the last trains are so early but to have them finish EARLIER on weekends is mind-boggling. In the early 80s, I would be LEAVING my house at 11 p.m to go out partying in Manhattan or Brooklyn, not getting ready to catch the last train to return home like I have to do here. Much like many things in this country, this was done half-arsed and with pisss poor planning. How about telling those fat-cat rail companies to run one train every 30 minutes on major lines? Never happen.
