    Poor mum! I can't imagine the shock she'd be in dealing with this in private, but having to do it in public as well..

    Haha incredible! Mulholland Drive finally gets some of the credit it deserves! It was definitely one of the greatest achievements in cinematic storytelling, though no.1 is a pretty bold statement.

    It's times like these that you really appreciate the efforts made in Tokyo to earthquake-proof most buildings

    The Republican presidential candidate also repeated his promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border to keep out immigrants

    Not sure why he even bothers to win Hispanics, his "great wall" idea would likely repel 90% of them and as long as that stays they're aren't going anywhere

    It's incidents like these which really makes the necessity of autonomous cars clear as day. Once autonomous driving technology is introduced, it might be better to ban certain drivers (poor scores on driving tests, etc,) from manually driven cars, while others would have a very short leash (ie. 1 accident and banned from manually driven)

    Will give the 1st month free trial a go and see what the lineup is. I already have access to BeIN Sports streaming, which literally has everything regarding football so not sure if it would be better on that front. Rugby access is interesting though

    Trump once again making a fool out of his supporters? No surprises here, chances are his supporters don't even know how silly they are being made out, as that's their appropriate level

    Haha awesome! I actually can't wait to see the opening ceremony in Tokyo. There's so much that could be used

    I guess the Brazilian timezone is about as inconvenient as possible for Asia-Pacific, so a huge chunk of viewers are lost there. Even for West and EMEA, the timing would have resulted in a lot less live viewership

    Accommodation is the most serious concern I think. AirBnB has been wiped out in Tokyo so am not sure how we'll cope, besides that absurd love hotel program which has no chance of taking off. Safety and transport-wise, there are no risks whatsoever. I also don't think there will be too many empty events like Rio, so am hoping for reasonably priced tickets

    The linear Shinkansen is, as others have noted, a vanity project. It has no economic rationality whatsoever. The route the linear Shinkansen will take is through very mountainous terrain where few live. The stations between Tokyo and Nagoya are not major population centers.

    Look at a map that shows the route and the terrain and you will see that there are not "millions of country-dwellers" who could make use of the linear Shinkansen.

    @bullfighter: 100% disagree, and your reasoning that the line goes through mountains is bizarre. I hope you don't think people will be jumping on a moving train? My point is that 40 minutes from Nagoya to Tokyo essentially makes each a middle suburb to the other, allowing some critical business functions and services to transfer from Tokyo to Nagoya and vice versa considering the auto strength around Chubu. If you think these aren't economic rationalisations, then you are just wasting your time here and should leave these decisions to the grown-ups.

    What are your reasons for there not being any economic rationality?

    What a coward, leaving his teammates hanging while fleeing like a thief

    What a true disgrace to all sport. Lies and then fleeing the country like a coward. It's very generous that the Rio Police aren't coming down hard on these drama queen liars, but the US should man up and slap with a cowardice charge, unless of course they condone this disgraceful behaviour.

    Clinton has already won, there's really no point continuing this farce. Trump's best move from here would be to pocket all the fundraising cash as a bonus for his great performances over the past year, pull out of the race and go on vacation. Repubs have such astonishingly poor and selective memory they likely would have all forgotten his betrayal within a few days

    Still an incredible result, the Japanese women's wrestling team has been ridiculously dominant this Olympics
