Actually the 7-11 coffee is really excellent as well, at 100 yen it beats many 3-400 yen/cup shops...Don't mistake snobism with love for quality, and don't think quality has to be expensive...

You'll never forget the taste of a Chemex (or even a Japanese Kalita) made coffee (by someone who knows what she/he is doing). Unfortunately, afterwards you'll also never enjoy Charbux again ;) .

Only someone who knows not much about coffee would call charbucks "good coffee"..

A guy with a vision. Seriously though, I think his place is in a proper institution, not on the streets sleeping on a three story pile of trash...

Buddhism does not value poverty (or any other causes of suffering). Christians do value poverty of the followers (but not that of the priests and pastors, any visit to Vatican would tell you so much)

I guess every commenter originating from the United States of Soviet America, Russia and China would agree with the teacher's actions (and to a session of waterboarding, youth imprisonment, police violence and other civil liberties infringements in order to find the culprit). The people from EU would strongly agree with the education board disciplinary measure and would be horrified to learn how were these children treated. I'm from EU...

I bet a lot of neighbours would like Japan castrated, as until now, and get rather scared by seeing a pair of balls growing back... I'm pretty sure, if there's a war it won't be Japan starting it, but Japan might well win it.

You know, when they last year calculated the GDP in China last year, by summing the results for all the provinces, the numbers were so much overly inflated that they had to sternly ask everybody to revise their results. The total was higher than the world's GDP for 2013...

Bush, there's no embarrassment. The Americans are paying handsomely for the privilege of riding on Russian rockets. Also, it is a well known fact that so far, the Russians have the most reliable space transportation. Must be because they're not putting trillions of USD in various wars across the world...

Clamenza, you're totally wrong in all your assumptions. I've been forced to fly on a787 and it was a very eerie feeling, trust me.
Jefflee, document yourself before hitting GSYuasa. Guess which company makes almost all the LiIon cells flown in space and on military aircraft? If you guessed Yuasa you were right. And for your education, before the 787 troubles, Yuasa aerospace batteries had no troubles whatsoever, with hundreds of millions of combined hours flown...so yeah, the system in which the Yuasa components were used was produced by Thales and certified by guess who? BOEING!
