    Wondering how well the microbreweries in Japan compare to the competition I've tried on the West Coast? Wanting to try some of the local brews next time I'm in town - or is it worthwhile?

    21 is perfectly legal in Colorado as long as you're not transporting, driving under influence, or consuming on US Federal Lands - the perfect state for 4:20. Blaze on.

    $47K for a Jeep?!? Seriously? It'd better come standard with ALL upgrades possible (and at least 10 full tanks of gas provided by the dealership) - and even then the MSRP selling price is about $40K. I'd double check that fuel economy - 10.3k/Lt it sounds about right - if you're doing expressway driving at a consistent speed (achievable using the 4-banger, very doubtful if you'd get that with the V6 & towing package)...it's definitely lower for inner city driving (constant starts & stops).

    Just when I almost had faith in humanity...reality kicked me in the teeth again. Thanks needed the wake-up.

    What a POS in every sense of the phrase. Man, folks need to step it up and get involved; otherwise, this perpetual cycle of crap continues, and eventually becomes as accepted as the norm, with the added cliche of (i.e. the excuse) "sho ga nai" to legitimize this nonsense.

    Poor man needs help. Hopefully someone will give him the aid he needs.

    a list price of $10,000 for the original Neorest, and possibly more for the new model.

    So it'd take nearly 14 years to recoup the savings if one's sewer bill is approximately $60 a month? A very nice product, but it seems entirely too expensive to justify owning one at current utility rates.

    Sigh - and no silencer equipped Brennan LRS-46 anti-material rifle for this spy hunter joy ride? Bummer. Had plans to at least take out a Soviet era gunship or an Angolan tank during this excursion outside of MSGV.

    What the hell's wrong with that fool of a boss? Seriously - if the employee isn't up to snuff, then you sack 'em and move on. Common sense would dictate that you don't go all John Wick on your employees if they aren't pulling their weight.

    Agree with points made by folks on this board on both sides on this issue. The government shouldn't be confiscating passports without due process of law. The flip-side is that passports are property of the government - always have been, and always will be. Also agree with what's been written - if you still willingly choose to visit a war-torn and/or highly unstable country after the government's warning not to do it, then you must be prepared for the fact the government will not attempt a rescue or repatriation effort if you land yourself in trouble.

    I think Abe (as well as his cabinet) does not understand the extremely warped calculus in this high stakes civil war, as to what your true intention may be (be it as a noncombatant or not). In both the eyes of ISIS/ISIL and the Syrian government security forces, it doesn't matter - as any action or position you take - regardless of how benign or altruistic it may seem - automatically defaults you to one side of the conflict - regardless if your intention is to provide humanitarian aid or not.

    All foreigners are viewed as outsiders providing support to the opposing side of the conflict. MHO - would be to completely stay out of it. It's going to get a lot messier before it gets better - which is years away from any level of stability, unfortunately.

    Requiring a PhD in Astrophysics and having written three articles in the Journal of Science might be slightly lofty expectations by an employer to work part time as a cashier at a MOS burger...

    Tong Zeng, told The Associated Press. “A month ago, it suddenly dawned on me that we should do this.”

    Don't think the investigation is needed to see if the boy was bullied. Granted over simplification here but - elementary school + student struggling with Japanese language = easy target for bullies. My two-cents FWIW.
