    That's a lot of money. Is she worth it?

    Just listen to her sing acapella, or accompanied by very simple piano or guitar chords (YouTube is full of such videos). You won't ask your question again. Besides her huge voice and blues singing talent (comparable somehow for me with Janis Joplin without the cigarettes and alcohol), her unassuming "next door girl" attitude makes it all worth. What's 90 million nowadays?

    Lizz, it's both not unusual nor unprecedented. A fire onboard in the right place can bring down a plane pretty quick. If it's not a bomb, it could have been a battery

    A Japanese wedding is nothing but commercialism brought to maximum, almost dystopian in a way. I've been too a few, every time getting shocked by how much does the wedding industry make of naive people. I'm to glad ours did not take placed in Japan, we've saved many tens of thousands of dollars this way.

    We once celebrated a Jubilee at the "Peters" french restaurant there. Being a couple, we were given a table in a corner overseeing the building across the hotel, not some nice night cityscape, although there were similar empty tables with much better views available (strike one).

    Food was excellent (as it should be at 18.000JPY per person), but the waiter insisted about 300 times that we order some wine with it, even after explaining him that my wife is pregnant and I am not drinking out of solidarity with her (strike two).

    Behind us, some "highclass" escort Chinese lady (lowclass if you ask me) was trying hard and loud to make conversation with her client, an American from Texas. By the time we were to our desert, she was tipsy and reciting loudly: "why are you so shy, please touch my hand", continuously. I was steaming out of my ears...Strike three...

    Errr, never again? We kept to food cooked at home or to simpler dates, in better places afterwards.

    A very politically correct picture. Appealing for men, women, straight, gay and lesbian.

    Windows 10 is fast and stable. Some of the updates are critical safety related.

    My statement was very simple and clear. It's not my problem that people get negative about this.

    There's a difference between grilling and hot iron plate frying... Both are good for what they are...

    Please remember that as a car driver you have NEVER the Right of Way in front of cyclists. So yeah, the driver is at fault.

    It is very much possible not to see a body lying on the street until it's too late, even at legal speed. Every driver will tell you that much.

    Since1981, if you can't see how climbers could get lost, you're not as experienced as you claim to be. Specifically you've probably never encounter really seriouslt bad weather, with conditions changing every 30 seconds or so. Mountains will kill anyone not prepared (and sometimes even the most prepared).

    Don't take a job, unless you're really sure what you're getting into. Blatant racism and glass ceilings all over the place... Be really strict in salary requests, and be ready to leave at any time for a better job, especially given that you'll have to fight hard for a measly rise.

    Most important, don't trust any gaijin oriented head hunting companies in Tokyo, they're all like dogs pulling on the same bone.

    Ha, as a researcher I am truly saddened by most of these comments. Life us worth living beyond the point of filling your own stomach (or other immediate needs), you know. (Space) research is an easy victim of bashing for the hoi-polloi, not having the intelligence required for seeing its benefits for the decades to come. Just as a small point for the people asking why wasn't this money spent in ouhoku or Kyushu: building this telescope started decades ago, most of the money spend before the quakes...

    Who can torture and kill a cat, can kill a human as well. While death penalty is too much, he should never be let to walk free again.

    I like it. A logo does not have to beat the old stereotypes again and again. The design is as cool as it gets.
