Could be the perfect excuse to take shelter in an English pub, with a few pints of Speckled Hen, and watch England hammer Ukraine (4am Wed. morning), then pray to God for the email from work saying its a day-off!

Tmarie, thats why I always carry a brolly with a nice, shiny, pointy spike. Sometimes I feel like the fourth musketeer swashbuckling my way through a tsunami of myopic kamikaze cyclists. Great fun.

Bag lady looks like a great mom. Leave her alone.
I used to smoke 40 a day. 3 fags (that what cigarettes were called, in the days when gay meant happy) in bed before I got up! Gave up in 1980 when the cost of a pack went up to 70 pence (UK)! I'm not paying that!
Took 5 years to lose the urge. Hardest part was passing on the joints....

By my calculations, 1961 to 2012 is 51 years. If he had been sentenced to life imprisonment, he would have been out decades ago. so he not only gets a double life imprisonment sentence, he also gets to swing!? Is that next clatter of keys in his cell door his daily riceball, or the hangman?
Cruel and unusual punishment? Unbelievable. Guilty or not, hasn't he paid for it?
Shame on you Japan
