    I dunno man, history has told me that the last time Japan had a strong army capable of excursions abroad, it ended up committing some of the greatest war crimes in modern history. Facts also tell me that Japan has been pretty peaceful for the past 70 years with its peaceful constitution.

    Japan is not the place it was in the 30s and 40s, neither are the people. Likewise I doubt German troops will be goose stepping down any streets anytime soon. My own country isn't planting flags on islands like it did centuries ago... people change, mostly for the better.

    The SDF isn't organised to fight a war... yes it has some of the best kit around but running tanks around and carrying out displays isn't quite the same as killing people who are trying to kill you.

    I hope the cases succeed, but I doubt they will...

    I'm British too @wipeout, and I'm proud that I've never been off my face stoned. I'm not grim, I have a sense of humour, I get on with people... I just don't approve of smoking... cigs, cigars, pipes or spliffs. As for eCigs... don't get me started on them... there are other ways to relax without a drug. _^

    Well, how to make a fist is taught in martial arts, so I doubt this is true.

    I can make a fist and I've never done martial arts, or boxing, or any other kind of fighting, and yet I can make a fist. In fact, my first is more like option 1 than 2, as my thumb rests on my middle finger (on both hands).

    Yes it's nonsense, but it's still harmless fun, like blood group personality tests and star signs - all rubbish, but still fun.

    Moonraker... what's wrong with reserved? We're not all into letting it all hang out, maaaan.

    Strangerland, I meant if it's legalised you'll have even more stoned people wandering aimlessly around in daydreams, and that sickly, foul-smelling smoke everywhere.

    Con - walking past pot heads getting stoned and blowing their sickly smoke everywhere. Pro - the same. Bad enough when tobacco smokers pollute public areas with smoke for druggies to join in. Yes, I'm calling users druggies, junkies, pot heads, tokers... all of the negative terms. A mind altering drug is still a mind altering drug... and no, I don't drink so don't use the booze argument with me ;)

    Also, doesn't prolonged use of the sh... stuff affect the memory? Legalise it for medicinal use (GPs or hospital doctors carrying out injections, not smoked), but not for recreational use. You do that and you have a generation of hippies stoned out of their heads.

    Thunderbird2 - Absolutely! Oh don't you just hate Americans with those easy smiles of straight and white teeth! Those terrible Americans with those healthy slim bodies are like, SO fake and stuff.

    Give me a girl who's keeping it real with crooked grey teeth and 35 lbs overweight any day!

    Darned Americans....

    The way they're dressed and the cheesy smiles are what makes them look American to me, Mr Sarcasm 1943. They don't look like typical Japanese girls, they look like American-Asian Cheerleaders.

    Utrack, it's not a disease. It's a condition caused when blood clots in veins due to being in the same cramped position for too long.

    Deep-vein thrombosis, not economy class syndrome... the dumbing down of medical terms doesn't show how dangerous the condition is.

    While number 8 is the one to catch my eye, I have to say they all look very American. Just something about the cheesy grins and whole look that just yells America at me. However, number 8 for me is the prettiest.

    Am I missing something here? I'm scratching my head wondering what it is about this particular incident that made the news.

    It's a crime, two women, same place, serial groper... that's newsworthy as far as I'm concerned. Could be posters' friends, daughters, wives, lovers who are next. Then would you say it's not newsworthy? It's sexual assault and needs to be stopped... now!

    I'm a Brit who wants to stay in Europe... last thing I want is the UK wallowing about looking for new friends to play with. All we hear from the Brexit people is we can do well, it'll be okay... but I haven't seen a shred of evidence or support from overseas to support that view.

    Plus I want to be able to travel to Japan without applying for a Visa, and I have a feeling that leaving the EU would jeopardise that.

    Also, I trust that loon Boris as far as I could spit him!

    Japanese women can get away with wearing these, maybe some other Asian women, but western body shapes would make these look odd.

    As for the sailor uniform... I don't see anything wrong with it. Yes some girls hoik their skirts up, but so do girls in other countries... here in Scotland they're nicknamed 'pelmets' they're so short.

    I love the line about empathy and expecting a reward... empathy has nothing to do with a reward. That's just gangsters saying "we did you a favour, now how about doing us one?" Don't forget these people deal in drugs, human trafficking, prostitution, organised crime, etc... in disasters they ride in like the tattooed cavalry, but they always expect to be paid for their 'kindness'.

    The Royal Navy used to shoot captains who didn't try hard enough in the 18th century... he got off lightly.
