    Young Japanese women could wear armour and still look great.

    Tried to find chocolate covered crisps last year. Certainly couldn't find them in the Lawson near the hotel anyway. Seven&i down the road never had any either.

    Shallots... it's probably all in my head. To me it's like someone saying they're proud to be a red head and dying their hair black. My comment was on that level.

    Shallots, I'm not guilty of double standards - I couldn't care less if she had green hair and orange make up... I just found the statement rather ironic that's all.

    Yet she bleaches her hair. Strange.

    It's your comment that is strange.

    And yet posters here ridicule Japanese women for dying THEIR hair or lightening their skin as attempts to look western. Double standards old son, double standards.

    I have nothing against Bouncy... I think she's hot, I just think that was a rather ironic statement.

    On the other hand, while not relating to the comfort women issue, there is plenty of evidence of sexual rampages by the Japanese troops who ran amok during their occupations of various places, most notoriously Nanjing and Manila.

    To be fair you could say the same things about the Russians after the fall of Berlin... and no I'm not denying anything. Oh and in the interests of balance... http://www.nationofchange.org/2015/04/09/the-scars-of-war-vietnam-comfort-women/

    But in Beyonce’s version, the bragging also turns political as she insists that she remains true to her African American heritage.

    Just another loony with nothing else to do but make a fool of himself. Muppet.

    I wonder if the study was funded by the Japanese whaling community through an intermediary?

    Oil price goes up, ticket prices go up. Oil price comes down.... nowt.

    Even when you watch the series now you can see how Nesmith just looks like a miserable git. Loved their music... safe yes, but it's still good to drive to on the old car CD player.

    Not sure about their tour though - Davy Jones' voice was pretty much at the heart of most of their songs.... it would be like a Queen tour without Freddie (which I have always thought was a bad idea).

    Lostrune2, my PC is so slow that any hacker would give up and go away... nothing personal on it anyway. That's what USB sticks are for :)

    I don't blame people for not investing... I certainly wouldn't. I like to see something for my money, not some banker type rubbing his hands with glee as I hand over my dosh to lose it all in weeks or even days.

    Listen to the lectures of daily heavy cannabis user Terrence McKenna and come back and say there are any deficiencies in his verbal memory.

    The fact that he's a heavy cannabis user speaks volumes.

    From Wiki:

    Terence Kemp McKenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) was an American ethnobotanist, mystic, psychonaut, lecturer, and author who spoke and wrote about a variety of subjects, including psychedelic drugs, plant-based entheogens, shamanism, metaphysics, alchemy, language, philosophy, culture, technology, and the theoretical origins of human consciousness.

    And

    McKenna formulated a concept about the nature of time based on fractal patterns he claimed to have discovered in the I Ching, which he called novelty theory, proposing this predicted the end of time in the year 2012. His promotion of novelty theory and its connection to the Mayan calendar is credited as one of the factors leading to the widespread beliefs about 2012 eschatology. Novelty theory is considered pseudoscience.

    He was a NUT!

    I still use XP on the home PC and Vista on my laptop... no way am I upgrading to Windows 10. Why do I need it?

    How is this all the UK and France's fault Mezzanote? Italy had a hand in the shape of the middle east before and during WW2, as did Germany and a few others. Those countries with Empires and colonies all played a part in shaping the Arab world... but you can't absolve the people who live there of blame. No-one set tribe against tribe, sect against sect... they did that themselves. No-one interpreted their holy book for them... they are doing that themselves. Sunny against Shiite infighting has nothing to do with Europe... it's like Catholic vs Protestant, two aspects of the same religion split by different interpretations and beliefs.

    So stop blaming the west for this - they did it to themselves!

    Madverts, the Russians also have some state of the art fighters and ground attack aircraft in Syria too, not just their old Cold War MiGs and Sukhois.

    In response to the "what are the muslim nations doing?" comments, let us remember one very important thing. If it weren't for the Americans, British, French, Russians etc wanting to remove Assad in Syria, Gaddafi in Libya, Hussein in Iraq, and the Taleban in Afghanistan then we wouldn't have had this vast human tragedy in the first place. Just look at the huge mess in Syria, Libya, Iraq, and Afghanistan today. Unresolved and civil war. The very reason why these muslim nations won't help out is because they have seen who caused this in the first place. And I'm British.

    You forgot the Russians fighting the Mujahideen in Afghanistan in the 80s. The CIA arming and training them led to the Taliban. The Gulf War of 1991 was caused by Iraq invading Kuwait and the Western Allies wanting to protect the oil, but Saddam was at fault. The Iran/Iraq wars were nothing to do with the West.

    Anyway... I think more effort needs to made to keep the refugees in Turkey, where they are safe, rather than allowing them to commit suicide trying to get to Greece and the rest of Europe.

    Hardly the tiny Isle that is situated west of France in the Atlantic ocean has anything even remotely comparable to current fleet of Russian supersonic bombers or say, precision cruise missiles. Sure, British traditional anti-Russian state propaganda was much more sophisticated in 1854, during the Crimean War.

    For your information we have state of the art fighters in the shape of Typhoon and our Tornado aircraft have highly advanced missiles that not even the US forces have. We are also using drones (as are the US). This 'tiny isle' as you so condescendingly called it may have suffered at the hands of accountants, but we can still pack a punch.

    Even a flea can bring a giant to his knees.

    Anyway, back to the point... if you let Assad have his enclave - called it Assadland - it would stop the civil war overnight. Then you just need to concentrate on wiping IS and the other Jihadists off the face of the planet.
