For some reason my sports club has greenish lighting. Any effects from that?

It's still junk food, marketing is aimed towards children and poor people. A fund to help sick kids in hospitals is just marketing. How many people are sick because of a fast food life? I agree with ditching the stomach-turning clown. Only point in Mickey D's favor is that they ban smoking in their greasy dens. Oh, and I never eat there.

"Culling" = KILLING. And given it is shooting from helicopters, I agree with Cleo. Those not killed outright will be left to suffer a lingering dismal death of pain under the hot sun. Can't another, more humane solution, be found?

Hope they can hire people who lost their jobs because of the (wholly appropriate) loss of the npp in Japan.

I still worry about the safety of Shizuoka green tea because some yahoo mayor agreed to take on burning lots of tsunami debris (unsorted, god knows what's in it) for his brother's incineration plant. Protests by local green tea growers were, of course, roundly ignored. So, I have avoided all Shizuoka tea ever since, to my chagrin. Does anyone have an update?

Good one, Yuehan!
Well, Boulder is nearby Denver, so this direct flight is a good thing for anyone going there or to enjoy the incredibly pretty Estes Parks and nearby areas.

Further proof, as if we here in Japan need more, that people cannot handle nuclear power responsibly. Therefore, it is NOT SAFE. Ergo: no npp should be restarted. But, as I just stated, people (LDP in particular, and Abe) cannot handle the correct procedures for a safe npp, they will start them up and we can just simply wait for the next f'in catastophe. It is inevitable.

Some Tohoku residents even support restarting the npp so they can have their jobs back. So I heard.

Look to the future when most of Japan is full of old retired people, no longer doing the GW mob. Should be easier then.
