Meh. They should have voted fro someone else, not sign useless petitions. Like all of the "beneficiaries" of the "Arab Spring", Egypt is rapidly going to the dogs. Maybe dictatorship is the optimal form of government for these countries.

Fujisan looks good. The Breitling team? I know that the advert they have on the TV of the bloke flying to meet some woman in the desert and he then flys off to meet someone else cause she is 5 minutes late is about as pretentious and irritating an ad as can be found on TV.

Further signs of the shift of power and influence to Shanghai and Seoul. Plus US just doesn't seel cars in Japan (although not sure they sell many is Korea either). Maybe the answer is to bomb the North into oblivion and then flood it with cheap American cars (Iraq anyone?).
