If I'm in a country like Japan, why do I have to feel "discriminated" just because I have to obey these rules too? Why would I be the exception?
She has her tattoos, Japan has rules about it, so logically she can be refused.

It was a debate a while ago. Death penalty is not cheaper then life imprisonment. So it was told. Nevertheless if the law in a country gives death penalty for certain crimes, so be it. Nobody needs to commit those crimes, right? Nobody has to murder somebody. So if you think it's OK and you know what follows is ultimate punishment...no need for crying.

There is no war-crime, as war is a crime in itself. And like in most wars, civilians are the main victims of the decisions of a few who think that in order to show their strength, they have to put thousands to death.
If one person dies or millions, it doesn't matter... it is all nothing but criminal, acts by criminal governments.

Kyocera, be careful with your invention and patents. Apple will soon come to claim that it was their idea from the first moment.
It would be great. I thought that these screens already existed...?

Evolution is a random process whereby nature produces anything possible. and only those survive as a species with similar behavior and body design, that is best adapted to their environment.
In human turns it is more then that. It's a matter of taste as well, probably social background and needs.
Why humans don't have much body hair? Do you know any man who likes a woman with beard? And nowadays the trend for women not to like man's bodily hair...If people with lots of hair have less chance to produce offspring, the hairy persons eventually die out....

What's the problem of most readers here? Anyone forced to eat something? Did you have YOUR balls being removed?
I wouldn't want to eat them either, but to make such a big deal out of it....
Worse is what happened in Slovenia a few years back, where parents were forced to cook their own children and eat them, or co-workers had to bite off the balls of his Slovenian college and eat them....
Far worse things happen in this world than this persons diner....

Great idea. Why not make floors, chairs and stairs with moving plates and store the energy somewhere. Even earthquakes could generate electricity and thus open doors...

I love Japanese women and sometimes I have this wow effect... But me too cannot say that they are sexy or presented sexy... they just don't have the attidtude for it. When I'm walking in Nagoya or Osaka and see them wearing short skirts, I cannot help but look, but stil don't find them sexy. But in Brazil for example it is completely different.
A Brazilian woman doesn't need to wear miniskirt or underwear to be sexy. I think it is in the moves, the way they walk and talk and look at you.... this makes a woman special and sexy. And above all, natural.
In São Paulo are many Japanese descendents and they too can look extremely sexy. Why? Because they took over the way of other Brazilian women and they too are natural beauties....
