Although I agree that Israel needs to take some sort of action against Hamas for the firing of rockets into Israel, I do think Israel is getting out of control with the civilian killings.. The blockade of Gaza itself is a bit of a moral disgrace..

Although I really don't like Man U, I'm glad they've got Van Gaal as this upcoming PL season is going to be the most intense competitive season ever

Apparently in France, about a quarter of young people (18-25) think that the only way to solve their country's problems is through revolutionary action. The spirit of Bastille Day still lives strong!

Although my hometown Sydney is incredibly safe, I still don't think it comes close to Japan.

Agreed, I was hoping the Brazilian team would lose at some point - they had the most arrogant bunch of players this world cup

I've had a Belgian beer called Westvletern a few times, and each time I've always been amazed at how good it is and I'd probably say that's the best beer I've ever had.
The only problem: it costs like 3,000 yen a bottle in Japan and you can't find it anywhere.. The Belgian beer bar I usually drink it at only gets it once every few months or so.

I don't see any sexual harassment but every now and then I see instances of power harassment.

@fxgai: Yeah I also thought that the numbers for Shinjuku were closer to 3-4 million per day. 750,000 per day wouldn't even make it the busiest in the world I don't think..

What a fool, he only said that because he's in a position of power in that company. My office's boss is also very outspoken against Chinese and especially Koreans, but no one can really say anything against it.

Although I agree that this expansion is mutually beneficial to Japan and its allies, I don't agree at all with how Abe achieved it. This sets a precedent for "reinterpreting" any article in the constitution.

I think Maccas is doing a fairly good job of defining itself and it's always held as the poster company for all fast food so it's always in a disadvantageous position. The McDelivery here is an absolute godsend.

I think Penalty Shootouts should be removed completely, they are so crap to watch and have nothing to do with Football or the team. Golden Goal is also crap, but a much better option that PK shootout.

For me Spaghetti is the long thin noodles. Anything else (Ravioli, Penne, etc.) I just call pasta.

Yeah, there does seem to be quite a lot of focus on the Toranomon area recently, I know of heaps of people who've had their companies move offices around that area.
