    I wonder how much the driver got for throwing the bout.

    It seems the 'missing passport was later found in O'Barry's car'. Maybe if they'd given him time to rummage in the glove compartment or wherever instead of hauling him straight off to the police station, there would have been no news story here.

    You're responsible for producing your passport. The authorities are not responsible for rummaging for it. This is true everywhere.

    I think the push back comes from people who view pornography as degrading to women.

    Well, okay, but the cards are not pornography.

    Nessie - daikon, onions, cabbage = just more starch? Any data for that?

    Thank you for your question. I meant carbs.

    Cabbage has almost as much carbs as beans. (6g carbs per 100g cabbage, vs. 7g carbs per 100g beans )

    https://www.google.co.jp/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=green+beans+carb+count

    Onions are 9g carbs per 100g, so higher than beans.

    https://www.google.co.jp/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=onions%20carb%20count

    Daikon turns out not be be that carbo-loaded, at 4g carbs per 100g.

    As if Japanese cuisine wasn't carbo-loaded enough. When you order veg it's usually just more starch (daikon, onions, cabbage).

    I'd love to see more nanohana, spinach, romaine lettuce and ta-sai. My Japanese friends tend to avoid dark, leafy greens, saying they're too bitter. Japanese piman are unpleasantly waxy. Kabocha and nasu are a bit starchy, but at least they have distinctive, pleasant flavors.

    That's what Myanmer people said. They worked very hard to try to live with Myanmer Moslem people, but simply impossible to live with them. I think the Moslem people should listen to Myammer people and try to live in harmony

    "Moslem people" ARE "Myanmar people", to anyone who's not a bigot.

    Giood stuff, Katsu, haraam though you may be.

    why would any country welcome Myanmer Moslem people who were kicked out of their own country because of their difficult nature

    Maybe you can enlighten us about that difficult nature? At the risk of Godwinning, your argument is the one that was made about Jews, gypsies and homosexuals in WWII.

    Are there no such cards in Taiwan with non-pornstar women in equally modest poses?

    Take in to account the ridiculous prices for goods in Japan and you wonder how anyone can live properly in this country on the minimum wage. ( actually they can't )

    And Australian prices are low?

    Pigs are unclean, but chickens, which enthusiastically eat their own poop are okay?

    Halal rules are demonstrably irrational. But then none of us is completely rational, so immigration may as well pander to this person's irrationality.

    It's widely known that the SDF is the second highest funded military operation in the world, behind the US.

    Widely known by who? Sources please. Also, assuming there is a black budget and it accounts for any appreciable percentage of defense spending, you'd need to figure in any black budgets of the countries you're comparing Japan to.

    Or you could just go with a proper source. Here's mine.

    The published military budget of Japan for 2015 was 4.98 trillion yen (approximately US$42 billion, and roughly 1% of Japanese GDP), a rise of 2.8 percent on the previous year.[1] On the 31st of August, 2015, the Japanese defence ministry requested a military budget of 5.1 trillion yen for the 2016 financial year, a rise of 2.2% on the 2015 budget. If approved, this increase would raise Japanese military spending to it highest level in Japan's modern history, although still leaving it in 7th place in terms of military spending world-wide, behind its regional neighbour China.[2] (wiki)

    Not even close to the second highest.

    I cannot find statistics for 2014 or this year yet, but in 2008 there were only 11 homocides in Japan

    That can't possibly be right. Maybe that''s for gun homicides.

    There were 1,097 murders in Japan in 2010. Even that's quite low.

    No contact from an employee? It wouldn't be unusual for a boss to send someone.

    THAT is why Sean Connery was the perfect Bond... he even had the Edinburgh accent.

    They need Groundskeeper Willie to play him. And he's not afraid to get his kit off.

    how about a white guy playing SHAFT?

    Gay white guy, to cover the bases.

    Who's the white private eye

    That's a sex machine to all the guys?

    (Shaft!)

    By golly you're right!

    He said the other man dumped the body in the parking lot. However, Yamada has refused to say anything further about the man, nor has he said anything about Hoshino’s fate.

    No-one's buying an OJ on this one.
