    As long as the protesters are not naked (and some of them do wear leather shoes,ffs) I couldn't care less...

    Oh, I would say that the A380 is also very revolutionary in design (but indeed, uses less composites than Boeing). It's not just a scaled up version of some older plane, but a completely new design. The only thing having in common (and what's basically constant along the entire Airbus lineup) is the cockpit and controls design. This greatly helped training new pilots...

    Well, you have to give it to Boeing that they were very very bold in almost every aspect of this plane. But somehow such gambling shouldn't be done especially in this industry. Progress via small (and less risky) steps would have been ideal, (just my opinion).

    No Japanese person I know can stand licorice products, especially the black candy :) . I'm addicted to it though... how about catering to the gaijin community and import some Gifu (Sisu) :)

    I have maid service once a week and the young ladies never heard of Pearl Harbor.

    If they're Japanese (most maid-service ladies here are Thai or Chinese nowadays), the sad reason she's accepting to work as a maid for your is most probably because she's lacking the educations that would afford her better jobs. Therefore is no wonder a young maid-service lady has never heard of something happening 70 years ago.

    On the other hand all Japanese people I know have heard of Pearl Harbor, the imperial army's atrocities and the war outcome. Maid-service persons are definitely not representative of the entire Japanese populations.

    Ha, currently Chiba sees most of the traffic going into Haneda through Tokyo Bay, around Aqualine-Umihotaru, and trust me, it's a lot... Not very noisy, but very often ;) . Having parts of it routed over Tokyo would bring a bit of relief, but it's obviously more dangerous. On the other hand, there are many small landing strips that can serve as backup in case of emergency in Tokyo, one thing both Chiba and Tokyo Bay can't offer.

    Yes, and there are people complaining about death penalties given to drug dealers... This (and thousands more) is what drugs can do. Destroys entire families and takes countless lifes...

    Now I think it's a really crappy country.

    Curious what you'd think about North Korea, then.

    Huh, I was in my mid 20's when I really wanted that Ducatti ST2 980cc :) . Will buy it sometime in the future, when I'm old enough to join this club..

    "I spend more than half my day with the cows. My wife thinks I’m daft. It’s a miracle she hasn’t left me."

    That's true love there :) . And yes, this type of bullfightning can't be classified as animal cruelty, as they would do that in nature, and both live to tell the story... It is a traditional way of selecting good studs btw, and not only in Japan...

    Once @ Google, always @ Google (and NSA, KGB, Rakuten, Amazon, some porn sites, some spam advertising companies, etc). The scariest was when I once looked for an item at Rakuten, and started getting advertisements for similar items over all my browsing computers, all over the world... So yes, Google has just launched a f-king person tracking device, and a lot of lemmings are just going to enable it by default, voluntarily letting governments and corporations spy on them without warrant...

    drlucifer - of course I was joking, I didn't think it's neccesary to point it out :) . Claiming labor costs accounts for the 6 times difference in prices between Beijing and Tokyo is really thick, as labour costs are only a small percentage of the total costs of such projects ;) .

    “Can you compare the labor cost in Beijing and Tokyo, and say that’s a fair comparison?”

    Yes, bring the Chinese workers in and tell them it's just like in Beijing. Labor costs don't account for more than 20% of the total cost anyway..

    elkarlo, I think they simply might have wanted to reset the situation in order to avoid further share drop. They got a VERY good deal in that Kone stock they were sitting on, anyway. The Europe market will only get more volatile in the next 3-5 years or so.

    R.I.P. We've all (except clamenza, obviously) done all sorts of dangerous things at 17, it's not the time and place to judge these two boys.
