    Spray wand in the basin- no this traditional sort of house does not have that on any level.

    There are apartments where the bath, toilet etc is just jammed so you can't easily use at the same time.

    Can spray your water everywhere- if you want more mould. Only our bath area is tiled. Melanite and fibre board in other areas- don't think they'd last long if you sprayed water everywhere. Our bath is sophisticated but doesn't have 7&8- maybe an option that isn't enabled.

    12- definitely not- always hang outside or inside our living room if it rains. 9- is good but then its small and has annoying protuberances that Western bath designers equally fail with having taps.

    This should be titled some possibly good features of a great deal of Japanese bathrooms.

    Mr. Trump is my Hero...

    deadbaetles -- I hope you are kidding, because all Trump is is an arrogant, out-of-touch, racist buffoon. And, IMO, no one who did not serve his country has any right to critisize a decorated POW like McCain. And I voted against McCain, but not because I did not admire the kind of man he is.

    Trump employs thousand of Mexicans.

    Same corrupt legal system in almost every country. Judges never want to do there job- case dismissed- appeals dismissed quickly with the plaintiff penalised where appropriate.

    A factor in this case is that home room teachers are generally new graduates who feel they have no power. The job is so bad that half of them quit in the first year on the job. That's part of the disgrace of Japanese schools. Homeroom is too important to lumped unto to solitary graduates no matter how the other teachers dislike the job. I'd say it has to given to all senior teachers, principals and administrative staff. Part of this problem is unreasonable expectations of some parents and conversely the general poor response to bullying of parents and teachers who should putting high expectations.

    Its should at least be manslaughter if not murder- its not easy to accidentally hit someone in the eye so hard that it penetrates the brain. What a misleading title- it should something like umbrella penetrates brain and causes death. Eye is bad and might lose the eye but it would extremely unlikely to kill.

    This will be good for Nintendo Japan- its been its own worst enemy for years by being overly controlling of reviewers. So much for being for fun when they slapped copyright claims against fair use reviews. Hopefully they will stop the nonsense and encourage reviews that get their games out in the marketplace.

    It would seemed like an eternity and probably extremely rough on their knees- its outside on rocky ground. Were 96 students late?, more likely only a few late and excessive punishment of the innocent.

    They need to at least protect against people carrying dangerous materials in baggage- probably more risky than deliberate acts of violence. Given the burdensome garbage rules, there is probably a lot of it going on.

    Most of Japanese do not think that ‘China wants a peaceful, mutually beneficial relationship with Japan’. They repeatedly invade Japanese territorial waters. They poached red coral near Ogasawara archipelago, Tokyo. Japan's export and import dependence(exports or imports/nominal GDP) on China are less than 3% respectively. So for Japan, China is not an important country. On the contrary, China can not produce a lot of industrial products without materials made in Japan.

    And have a war museum dedicated to encouraging young Chinese to shoot Japanese with guns. They are so peaceful. By "rise" they mean claim the rest of the world because there are Chinese people there. Chinese=China=Communist Party.

    No because the main result of gun being provided to citizens is more suicides, more accidental shootings and more citizen owned guns being shot by burglars to said home owners- physical security of houses is far more effective than citizens having their own guns. Self-protection is an irrelevant issue. For the USA its pointless, that horse is bolted- to even slightly control should start with stopping gun production for local sales- they have shown zero interest in doing anything about that. Easy to control gun imports. If you think guns are a tool then don't stop possession of miniguns, explosives and every other weapon.

    so called Green policies are guaranteed to increase CO2 emissions by being the most inefficient/expensive plans- the US has decrease those emissions by using gas. Hilarious comparisons- France who ditched the green nuclear power for coal.

    Water in an elevator would become a old, stale and dirty. This is Japan-they don't do their jobs right. Upgrading Elevators to be viable emergency exits should have done five years ago.

    This must be that "structural reform" they were talking about.

    The "hidden arrow" of Abenomics.

    Shot straight into the backs of those barely surviving.

    Since when do they ever do structural reform- Abe said he wouldn't do any backtracking on his Abenomic pillar. They needs lots of reform.

    There is a lot of shop in Japan without the money trays- for instance seven eleven combinis. Pies and real chips do make a decent meal that tarako can't. There are meaningless greetings in English. Have a good day. Thank you for your work. You can say a lot of meaningless stuff if you want- mindless Japanese speak is so packed into the language.

    Don't read this story as one of corporate power- Japanese corporation would like all sort of reforms but Abe's and other Japanese government has next to nothing. The only way to get ahead is for corporations to cheat. The story is one of weak government as far as acting as police. Japanese governments like gathering statistics, creating laws and spending money.

    Any western agency would make that ad in a fraction of those takes with CGI and meshing of slow motion shots- its looks fake anyway.

    one nation, one United Kingdom

    So backtracking on allowing local decisions on wind-power. That didn't take long. Goodbye BBC- thank god at last that corrupt organization that totally fails to follow its charter is going to be gone. If they stop the green bs than you can start saying hello to employment.

    JR management of problems is atrocious. Delay and delay no useful information given to passengers. They should have just run the trains normally if not that then slowly but not a long section of stop and stop except for the danger section. My wife checked online for me while the problem was happening and if I had followed that trip search I would have been seriously late for my work despite it being nominally better. Fortunately I had an alternative travel path.

    No doubt the actual workers were contractors (working to an hourly wage) led by a seishain and he didn't want to work on the weekend or do overtime even though it was obvious to at least do some makeshift work on the structure. Obviously failing or damaged structures need some work immediately- with less obvious defects there is time to consider when to re-mediate but not this time.

    If you love smoking, buy a large air filtering gas mask and smoke under that- get full value from your cigarettes. I'd have no problem you smoking anywhere. I bet a smoker would quit very quick under those conditions- the putrid smoke getting their eyes and nose. It would also discourage under-age smoking. Many Japanese smokers don't like other people smoke in smoking rooms.

    Standard illogical nonsense from a court. Happens in every court in the world- quite a lot of times in the US. Judges never take their job seriously.
