Sure, it’s still fast food, but Becker’s prides itself on high quality ingredients, such as its fresh-baked bread, and relaxing ambiance.
Is relaxing ambience a high quality ingredient?
The advert for these should have some cute cartoon deer (Barbi anyone?) to promote sales. for a limited time only......

Should have chosen Jim Parsons off the Big Bang Theory.
although agree that this type of movie is not a big hit with me. who wants to watch some bloke being a business ass and making money...... the woz idea would be equally (even more?/) lame

Sales tax is regressive as hurts poor more than wealthy. and anyway proceeds will not be used to pay down debt. abe's policies are a sham and one day the bill will have to be paid (in vastly devalyued yen).

surely people who go to West Africa to help understand that a period in quarantine on their return is for the safety of all? seems odd that she has taken this so to heart.

nice to see todai sucks at something (or at least one more thing they suck at but this failure can't be ignored or spun into something else). Probably because nepotism and arrogance doesn't win sports games.

That is a lot of money. can't all be on digital effects and the like. Sets? Are the cast being well paid? Ideally they would want a cur of the gross, no? Extras? do orcs get more than minimum wage?

Smith. Just observing that it is a stereotype in the US. not critical - I myself fit that stereotype nicely.
Jersey - same applies. As for his success, it is undoubted but achieved on the back (stabbing) of a number of people on the way up and you can't deny that praising the Chinese government while preaching maximum connectivity (to suit his own pocket) is a little bit of a paradox......

"Sexy" (for which read slutty) outfits for girls and spooky (for which read ridiculous) outfits for boys. fits right into Japanese likes.

Nope, don't get divorced in London if you are the main breadwinner (and, to some extent, the husband). courts in London now greatly favour "equitable division" for which read wife gets a ton iof cash if she has rich hubby.

i hate the term "radicalised". anyway, it runs counter to the author's argumant. i kind of agree that it might be more the glamour of violence and being part of a powerful group and (maybe) the promise of dominance sexually but not sure that in that case we have any answer. Which is why we should leave the Middle East and AfPak to their own devices.
