    They'll probably go with the default: Wasting police time, which is keisatsu-ese for "Whaaaaa!"

    What DOESN'T anger China and South Korea?

    Will this be enough for the climate change denying PM Abbott and the people who elected him to finally wake up?

    Climate change is undeniable, but you can't point to any single event as the result of climate change.

    Imagine a city where the murder rate is rising because of unemployment. When there's a murder, you can't say that unemployment was the cause of that particular murder, as there were murders even when the unemployment rate was lower. The most you can say is that there would be fewer murders if the unemployment rate were lower. Pointing to one event should not be enough to convince someone.

    Where do you think the extra water for the flooding comes from? Out of thin air?

    As if flooding is something new to Australia? The extra water for flooding is literally coming out of thin air; that's what rain is. It's been coming out of thin air well before global warming. Yes, there is global warming. No, we can't prove that the water for this particular storm is extra from global warming.

    More devaluation. Good news if you're short on toilet paper.

    I just don't want to have a machine being in sole control of my life.

    That's no way to talk about the LDP.

    Good move, but with today's cybercrime it's whack-a-mole.

    Has anyone ever studied whether it actually works?

    The most annoying part is how hysterical it sounds. People who are prone to hysterics should not be in office. People who are swayed by hysterics should not be voting.

    How many hours to go around the world?

    At 603km per hour, it would take 66 hours to circle the globe.

    And people rant on about the state-run media in China... Japan is no different!

    Tu quoque and the fallacy of false equivalence. Two fallacies that taste great together.

    The accident had echoes of an Asiana flight that crashed in San Francisco in July 2013, killing three people and leaving 182 injured.

    The Hiroshima crash is more reminiscent of the Windjet A319 crash at Palermo.

    http://avherald.com/h?article=4315b792

    A Windjet Airbus A319-100, registration EI-EDM performing flight IV-243 from Rome Fiumicino to Palermo (Italy) with 124 passengers and 6 crew, was performing a VOR approach to Palermo's runway 07 in thunderstorms and windshear at approximately 20:00L (18:00Z). The airplane touched down about 400 meters (1300 feet) short of the runway, impacted the localizer antenna for the ILS runway 25 embedding parts of the antenna in its nose and came to a stop left of the runway in the area of the intersection of runway 07/25 and 02/20 with both main gear struts collapsed, an evacuation via slides was initiated. Three passengers received minor injuries in the evacuation, the airplane received substantial damage.

    There is a high probability that the nanny state is going to ban crossbows because of this one isolated incident. I am not a fan of free-for-all weapons possession, but I am a fan of freedom. In the recent past, the government also banned knives over a certain length, with an apparent exception for kitchen cutlery, and over-night made perhaps millions of innocent people into criminals.

    As an avid cook, I would like you to share your recipes for cooking using a crossbow.

    She was held in custody for around a month before being granted bail.

    Solitary, or gen pop?

    The phallus festival comparison is slightly disingenuous, since the phalluses at these are stylized. If her art were more stylized, I doubt the authorities would scupper her naughtical ambitions: Critannia waiving the rules, rather than ruling the waves.

    Nice to see Hollywood get a wake-up call. They were complacent. Also, I'm tired of seeing TV shows and movies purportedly set in non-Cali places but obviously filmed in California. Game of Thrones is a great example of breaking the Hollywood monopoly.
