I'm swiss, but support Japan. Please drawn in Japan to our group, would be great to watch playing the Immigrant country vs. the Non-immigrant country... Anyway, it's Brazil who will win the pot in the end.

Wow, so many Elite wine connaisseurs in here. Come on, people, let them drink the Beaujolais, what's wrong with that? As we all know, it's like with music or whatever, there's no way to discuss about taste. Personally I drink mostly swiss (my homecountry, wine from there is only for the homemarket), french and italian wine quite often. But if my neighbour will offer me a glass of the BN, I wouldn't refuse... Live and let live...

@Storm... Losers? They just played a nice draw against one of the best teams (aka Holland) in the world. Guess Adidas is just following the rules of marketing. Japanese team in a japanese Ad for japanese consumers, just like that. Personally I'm a fan of "The All Blacks" and "The Blue Samurais", guess that soccer is much more popular in Japan (as it is worldwide) than Rugby. So what?...

Was there watching the games, Basel is my hometown. Nishikori did not bad, but in the end it was more like Chiudinelli played partly so bad, that Kei was able to win the game with 50% of his usual level. Looking forward to see Kei in the next match...

I have some mid-sized tattos and had never (big) problems bathing at different onsen in different regions. When I was at a hotel pool in Okinawa once, the staff asked me to wear a t-shirt because of the children playing in the area. No problem with that, as a foreigner (in every country) it's clear to accept such rules.

I'm from the same hometown like Federer is. Federer is like a god for some people here, I don't like him. Well done, Kei...

From my (european) point of view... Good to hear that America won't let Japan down in this case. Now, go home, China...

Glad to operate (aka at work and at home) since over two decades with mac os. Every time I'm forced to work on a pc with windows (unfortunately I have to dokitoki at work), it makes me feel like using a time machine, backwards. Really nothing against Windows, I'm far from hating it and I know the topic is about the new Windows OS. Just to say, I will never use this unless I'm forced to :0...

In my humble opinion... I like Tokyo, I'm not such a big fan of Kyoto. Been there three times, that's it for the rest of my life... The best place: Miyazaki City, far away from everything, warm, small but all there you need, nice people and I can say Hi personally to every foreigner, because you see some only once in a while.

I watched it here in Europe and this game made me yawning. Both sides didn't show good skills. While the japanese ball control was aweful, the koreans acted like girls after were involved in a foul. There are teams in this tournament which deserves this bronze medal more than the two teams played for it. However, the japanese midfield played a good game, while the korean defense showed good moments, too. In the end, I think Soccer (and I like Soccer) should not be a Olympic discipline.

This leaves me speechless... Ebino is my second home and the place where you never expect such things will happen. Too rural, too quiet, too beautiful, too out of this world...

There will be the time, that even cleaning ladies will need a degree to get a job, because everybody is aiming for higher education. In the end, as tmarie said, even with a degree you won't find jobs anymore...

Will someone trust a company with the biggest failure in credit card data hacking in history or even implanting malware from the company's music cd's to computers anymore? I always liked Sony, but these days I prefer to have them one the other side of my firewall... Means, the recently bought bluray player will be my last product of this company....

The problem is: even if they will be able to buy the islands with such a small amount of money and the chinese will give up on it, the chinese will focus then on another part of Japan (or another asian country) to overtake... Territorial disputes became the new hobby of China...
