    He's been coming out with some duds lately. (Pun intended)

    He was incoherent and got the hook during the award ceremony a few months ago, too.

    After he finds something better to wear, maybe he should start thinking of his fans (and his career).

    Forget the French fries and start making KFC mashed potatoes and gravy! That's one of the best things about KFC.

    Also, buy the potatoes locally and give the farmers here a boost.

    I find messages on Twitter to be a bit hard to visually follow especially when someone replies to a Tweet unlike FB where all the replies are visibly underneath each status update/pic/link etc.

    Also a lot of the sites/people that I follow re-tweet so much that my feed is filled with Tweets that are by people that I don't follow nor am I interested in.

    If Twitter can redesign their feeds, I'd bet more people would use it.

    In the days of old it would've been four oyajis reading newspapers.

    They wouldn't have been chatting together either then or now.

    In one of his YouTube videos, he had boasted that because he was a minor, the police wouldn’t be able to do anything to him.

    The juvenile laws need to be reformed and the age of a minor needs to be lowered.

    By the end of my JHS years, I was very well aware of how light my punishment would be if I were to commit certain crimes.

    The age of 20 is ridiculously high for the minor bar to be set.

    If he stopped his truck and went back immediately does that constitute a hit and run?

    Much of the "beautiful" Japan that you see on promotional posters don't match most of what you see once you get here.

    You can get a lot more for your money in China and Southeast Asia which is only a few hours south. The "exoticism" of those countries still exist in the minds of Western travelers while most of that disappeared in Japan in the 70s.

    Will this make for more costly repairs since these panels will no longer be able to be dismantled separately?

    I'd rather have a bit more safety with iron than dropping less than 2kgs from my car with molded together fiberglass.

    I was hoping for an Academy that can just pick the pictures and actors that they really deem best. Maybe they did that here and maybe they didn't. I don't know since I haven't seen any of these movies.

    But I would really hate to see the Academy nominate based on the # of blacks (or any other minorities for that matter) that are or aren't nominated.

    Let me guess. Since he's a "minor" he'll go to reform/juvenile detention for a few short years and be off on his merry way while he leaves in his wake a poor dead elderly couple and a lot of destroyed property.

    They need to revise the law and start prosecuting teens, at least those 16 and over, who commit major crimes like this to real jail time. Get rid of this not being able to be named nonsense, too.

    Doesn't the French government (or its allies) have counter-cyber espionage experts that can attack and make the Islamic fundamentalist sites crash or make them dysfunctional?

    I think in the US they call a spade a spade.

    0 chance of these right wing revisionists successfully having McGraw Hill change the correct terminology.

    American publishers aren't the Asahi Shinbun or the other sheep papers here.

    The high quality of Toyota/Daihatsu parts and vehicles have made them the successful companies that they are. There cars are great and they last forever.

    Hopefully this shift to Chinese manufactured parts isn't going to put a dent into Toyota/Daihatsu quality.

    I understand that Japan has way too many tsunami warnings when it's miniscule. But that earthquake was one of the biggest ever in history.

    Also, EVERY Japanese person saw and remembers the southeast Asian tsunami of 2004. They all knew that anything 750 meters to the coastline could easily be wiped out.

    Sitting and staying put after a monster quake like that while sirens and warnings were being blared out was absolutely irresponsible and stupid.

    "Wasurenomics"? What happened to creating and maintaining manufacturing jobs here?

    Also, hasn't the last few years shown Japanese companies that China can be a volatile place to do business whenever they become politically grumpy?

    Invest in Southeast Asia if you're not going to invest in Japan.
