    Another of the interesting impressions that is done within the vid is the first pitcher that goes against Kakefu ang got hit is Egawa and how he turns his head as he is hit. The other is the last pitcher who is doing a impression of Murata "Sunday" Choji with his distinctive pitching form showing his back as he winds up for a pitch.

    Man the Kakefu vs Egawa show down really brings back fond memories.

    the Crow was about the biggest thing in Japanese baseball.

    You're forgetting Kamisama, Hotokesama, Randy Bass sama. He really made Torakichi (Devoted Hanshin fans) proud.

    The first lady's trying stance is an imitation of Kakefu, former Hanshin Tiger slugger.

    Please read the 1965 agreement again. It doesn't require to specify who are included since it covers ALL Koreans.

    Planes can be flown like US Military UAV via satellite communication link and take off and landing could be done on site control at the airport. The problem is hacking of system which is possible in which no airliner or government would take responsibility of. It's basically the same as automatic driving that all had heard about.

    If you go to their web site they give you the answer to your question.

    Securing a stable 30-50km length is also important. While not all areas are suitable for establishing the ILC, the Kitakami Highlands are one of the few places in the world with all the ideal conditions for establishing the ILC.

    the problem is with the high tarriffs, high tarriffs means lower quality food products coming into Japan

    Nope there is absolutely no relationship with one to the other. It only hikes up the price. I was in the food business once and saw the level of quality of meat imported to Japan deteriorate quickly as Australia was not able to meet demand from places like China five years ago but now with China's economy going down hill I imagine demand had gone down with a lot of surplus of beef that Australia just can't sell in the international market without lowering the price.

    The present tariff on beef is 38.5% which is not overly high in terms of food product around the world.

    Here is her statement that had changed from receiving presents and following a man to being taken at gun point.

    Not worthy of taking her statement at full value.

    That's only true until some tin-pot with an A-bomb pops one off. But then there won't be anyone left to brag about how our nuclear weapons saved the world then, will there?

    Until that happens you can say that MAD had acted as a deterrent. It not the best solution but it 's the only working solution we got at the moment so we should accept it as is.

    And comes the fear mongers.

    It's more hazardous talking on your mobile phone then riding the maglev. As for driverless system the speed is controlled via the electromagnetics in the guideway through a frequency inverter and has nothing to do with the trainset. The driver would be controlling it via wireless link which would be much more dangerous then a person at the control station with a wired link.

    At the end the question would boil down to, does any country have the right to say to another nation that military agression is wrong, which is, but saying it will not stop it from actually happening.

    Nuclear detterent is as many had posted, is the large barrier from another global war.

    The eco point was a government initiative for privehouse holds to up grade their old electric appliances into newer energy conservative products. If you compare refrirgiators consumes 15~30% less energy then models 10 years ago. If all houses in the Kanto region were to utilize this system it had been calculated that it would amount to reducing the amount that a single nuclear reactor would generate. This type of energy saving policies had been carried out in the US in the past with similar results.

    Through cross pollination yes, gene splicing no.

    GMO is about gene splicing creating a completely new gene sequence that had not existed in nature before making them dangerous due to not knowing the out come. Best example will be Monsato's Laundup resistant strains which devistated Indias crops and central American corn.

    Well they will certainly have to adjust their target audience to a different group. Young male and female in their teenage to mid twenties single would probably their initial target here in Japan since kids would too young to appreciate the spicy food. Same with families and middle aged men and women who may not be familiar with tex-mex cuisines.

    It costs more to send them to China then the amount you can recycle material from each item. The reason why they move on is because once they collected a fair amount they consider moving on since they had cleared out the place of durable electronic goods in the neighborhood and move on to the next.

    The mobile phones are actually recycled here in Japan to gain the precious metals that can be extracted from them.

    Another fantacy by the Urinari Koreans. Hondai,,, ooops sorry Hyundai only produces 405 thousand units within European manufacturing facility(Czech &Turkey) as of 2013. Japanese manufacturers had exported 936,496 units the same year not including the ones manufactured in EU region. There is a 10% on all imported cars into EU so demand for cars for domestically built cars will be higher then imported cars.

    On top the amount of Hondai,,,, my bad Hyundai has slipped last year with on 303,000 units in the first half. Basically there is no way Hondai has more presence then Japanese cars.
