So let me get this straight, North Korea kidnapped a 13 year old girl, plied her with so many drugs that it killed her, then tossed her body in a pit.
It really is enough to make you rage.

will be great if Messi and Argentina do it in flamboyant style. Or if the Germans smash Argentina 8-1, that would be good. However, this WC seems to be a curse on Brazil. First Neymar is nearly paralysed, then the captain missed the Germany game, then they got annihilated by the Germans, it can only be that their biggest rivals will now go on and win it on their turf. A lot of the locals were angry about the whole funding and staging of the WC in Brazil, is this a voodoo curse that has been put on the nation of Brazil? Plus, Mick Jagger has backed the Germans to win it.

In continuance with the previous posters' discussion, should you find yourself having killed someone in Tokyo, then naturally it's time to head toward Saitama.

I think she looks great. Yes, she has messed around with booze and other drugs, which is always going to tarnish her image among some, but that behavior aside,I give her much kudos for what she has contributed to modern feminine style, and for achieving the longevity that she has done in her career, in the cut-thoat fickle world of fashion. It certainly can't be easy to stay on the top rung for so long! And the fact she has managed to, with all the bad publicity she has received over the years, and being 39 now, makes it all the more remarkable in my book! And there is no doubt I would guess, that if someone mentioned the word fashion, most would probably think of the name Kate Moss. Whether you disapprove of her off-camera antics or not, it can't be disputed that she is a true fashion icon.

I live in Tokyo, and one of the things I love most about Japan is the seafood. Since the disaster, I haven't changed my eating habits at all. I go to the same sushi restaurants,the same frequency, and never look at the location labels on the fish that I buy from the supermarkets. I never have done to be fair, I've always just looked at the fish itself and the price tag. It's not that I don't suspect some of the fish going out to market might be contaminated, although actually, I have no idea,It is simply that I love fish, plus with all the contradictory info out there, I wouldn't have a clue knowing how to choose what and what not to eat. In this case, it seems the most satisfying route to take is just getting on with it as usual.

I think it's a miracle the Japanese haven't wiped all the bears out already. And I commend them on this. They haven't had such an easy ride elsewhere. Back in England where I'm from, we wiped them all out plus wolves a long time a go sadly. Back to the article, no mention as to what the teams will do once they locate the bear, but I for one sincerely hope they don't kill it.

Would you check out everyone complaining about the Tokyo subway it's the best damned subway in the world hands down! the Fukutoshin line is fantastic.Linking Shibuya to Sendagaya then Shinjuke San-chome. How you can come up right underneath Isetan is neat too.
