I have never understood the grown "adults" who like to pretend they are still kids and dress up as comic book stories for "fun", always struck me as creepy and rather sad.

Where did they get the seeds in the first place if it's so illegal here? Does Japan have a cannabis culture? There should be a movement to get canabis made legal here, it could solve many of Japan's big problems. There are millions of cool little cafes here, just imagine how much cooler the would be if they could sell weed and hash.

Maybe Barclay's and some of the other British banks could do with a cute mascot to take people's mind's off of the LIBOR fixing scandal that is rocking the banking world.

For shame, you vile creature. Show some respect for the dead and don't turn this into your personal political crusade.

Why is the Barclay's LIBOR fixing scandal not being reported on this site? It is one of the biggest scandals to hit the business world since Enron and it is only going to get bigger.

Pointless as it takes electricity to power it. Electricity is not grown on trees.

It's great that the artists are coming to Asia but the elephant in the room is as soon as they land in Japan there are so many restriction's and taxes and local bureaucracy that forces ticket prices to be sky high.
Many bands that would have come here now avoid Japan, not worth the hassle.

It would have been nicer if the Jackson fans had raised money for a charity he supported rather than the expense of so many roses.

Honestly wasn't being sarcastic.
Fair enough mate, I know what you mean about the British/English thing. Like when a Scottish athlete wins he will be called British in the press, should he lose however and he will be labelled Scottish.
Good luck with your Independence I would love for Cameron to be remembered as the man who broke up the union.

Let's clear thing up again shall we?
Three countries make up Britain-England,Wales and Scotland.Add Northern Ireland and that makes up the United Kingdom.
Britain is the island that England Wales and Scotland are on. The British Isles include the channel islands and the Isles of Man and Wight and all of the Scottish islands.
It's really not that difficult, if you are lucky enough to be British have a look at your passport, should help you to remember in future.

Posted in: Road traffic laws in Europe and the United States are simple, whereas in Japan pedestrians are always exposed to the risks of bicycles bumping into them from all directions...It is time for us to go back to the original point of the road traffic law, where bicycles and cars share the road.
