    I love the bright green melon flavoured pop they have in large cans from vending machines. Can't remember what it's called, but yes, very green fizzy pop.

    Yoga? Marlita, have you tried yoga with a bad back? You can't even sit up straight let alone cross your legs.

    Sighclops... we've worn vests since they were invented as a garment of underwear. How many of us British people had to do PE in our pants and vests because we forgot our PE kit? It's only the poseurs who have made vests/tank tops the garment of choice for those who love their own bodies and no doubt wax their chests and strut about for the benefit of the ladies.

    Last guy who looked cool in a vest was Bruce Willis.

    Yokels are also called bumpkins... spending their days going "oh arr" and chewing on a straw while imparting local knowledge to the uninterested. In America they would be as Jimizo described... baseball cap wearing, mulleted red necks with pick up trucks, 'squirl guns' and a fear of anything remotely complicated.

    No Americans going to argue about their own producers' protectionist attitudes?

    I thought it was a vest. To those of us in the UK a tank top is a sleeveless jumper. So "43% of Japanese women don't like guys wearing vests" makes more sense.

    As for these quotes...

    “When I saw his stomach flab, my seemingly eternal love disappeared in a heartbeat.”

    “I felt a sense of defeat seeing my flabby guy next to a toned guy in the pool.”

    “He was so pale that he blended in with the beach itself…”

    Shallow, ladies,,, really shallow.

    I still think they used Japan as a testing ground, and also to send a warning to Stalin of what could happen if he tried to expand on the areas under Soviet control after VE Day.

    Is America totally open to all imports? Anything they're protecting? It would be interesting to know.

    That heading photo is disgusting and deeply upsetting. To see that magnificent creature just lying there, about to be butchered for food that nobody wants and is probably toxic. Killed for no reason other than national pride.

    Ow! I have a bad back. Take some exercise says the doc. If I could exercise it would mean I didn't have a bad back. It's like doctors telling the obese to take exercise or they'll die of a heart attack... while the exercise they prescribe could probably induce a heart attack. I work for the NHS in the UK and even I think doctors talk mince at times.

    Got a couple of comments I'd like to add. I come from a military family but I find the use of atomic weapons on civilians to be disgusting. As for giving a warning beforehand... sounds familiar. By all means military military or terrorists, but never innocent civilians. Comparing the bombings to Pearl Harbour is a joke. Attacking a military base is entirely different than attacking a city. Yes the RAF Bomber Command and the USAAF bombers flattened German cities, and I'm not proud of that. Carpet bombing of cities is never right. If the A bombs were designed to end the war tgem why did they use two different types? They needed a testing ground to ascertain what the effects would be using two different weapons. Finally, I see some people are using the old "I vas only following orders" line. interesting.

    @kyushubill, I know that this is a forum where people can air their views, but seeing people apparently relishing every setback and crowing about it is getting old. How come people aren't being positive that they've managed to move nearly all of the fuel rods from the pool without a single incident?

    The west created the Taliban by helping the Mujahideen kick the Soviets out, creating the power vacuum there, and also created the power vacuums in Iraq and Libya... allowing these countries to spiral down into the mire of religious violence. Arming Syrian rebels helped to create the IS loonies who are now ransacking Iraq. Our governments never learn.

    I think to blame her parents is a bit rich. Ever think that maybe she's just got a head full of bad wiring? Some people are just, for want of a better word, evil. Dismembering small animals and poisoning school meals doesn't strke me as a way that someone would act if feeling under pressure. It sounds like a calculating mind, methodical and cruel.

    Dave, as long as she raises the issue she could be Santa Claus for all I care. Point is she's a high profile celeb, and that can only do good.

    Zichi, I had a great uncle who was a POW in Burma... my Dad's uncle. I don't feel any anger towards the Japanese. My dad gets a bit miffed, but he's fought in other wars so has other demons running about his head. For me it was a long time ago... literally another age. We all know that even if every man, woman and child got down on their knees and apologised it wouldn't be enough.

    Korea and China won't be happy until Japan has been destroyed by a massive earthquake and erased from the map by a mega tsunami. It's my feeling that as far as they're concerned Japan wasn't punished enough. It needs to be brought down, humiliated and destroyed... that's what I see as their prime motives. Some people feel the same about Germany... it was defeated, crushed, yet it's now the powerhouse of Europe, and a lot of people resent that. Same mentality as those who want to see Japan brought to heel.

    Just my opinion... obviously.

    Posted in: Japan needs to keep apologizing, making gestures of contrition and seek a fuller understanding of its shared past with Asia. The apologies tend to be vague and lack specific references to atrocities and excesses, therefore not addressing the needs of the victims.

    As long as those smoking pot realise that they are the same as those hooked on booze and cigs. And MJ isn't a harmless plant... harmless plants don't get you stoned.
