    From Japanese news sites: Mitsubishi stated the fuel consumption as being 30.4 km per liter, while it actually was 5~10% less or about 27 km per liter.

    I liked him for his modesty and humbleness.

    Maybe IBM management was just being merciful. A Japanese company might have emptied the broom closet and put them in there, behind an empty desk, hoping they would get bored twiddling thumbs and eventually leave on their own accord.

    Yet another attack doesn’t come as a surprise I guess. And worse, there isn’t much that can be done. They could start with closing the damned borders again though. Some of the people that pulled off that attack in Paris last year, had been moving freely between European countries and that hell hole they call the caliphate. And take a flame thrower to the areas where these people have been and are hiding. That Abdeslam fellow they caught in Brussels the other day, had been seen on several occasions by people from the same community, but nobody came forward. Put them in jail too or better, send them back to where they came from. At any rate, stop with that political correct pandering to these people.

    So for every illegal migrant the EU returns to Turkey, they get a legal one back from Turkey and then hopefully a genuine Syrian refugee with a genuine Syrian passport. Scores of migrants, mostly young male fortune seekers, have disappeared in Western-Europe and these numbers will go up now, for the ones already in Europe won’t be too happy with the prospect of having to move to Turkey, so good luck returning them there. Also, who says migrants won’t then show up at the borders of other countries?

    Because perhaps the word lavatory originates from the Latin word lavare, meaning to wash.

    I could be mistaken, but I would expect nuclear power plants to be chock-full with redundancy systems, so you don’t have to shut down the main operation due to some auxiliary equipment failure.

    What are the authorities afraid of? That somebody might knock on the door of that summit venue with a bunch of flowers “you’d better buy in exchange for our protection and 10% of the take, or else”?

    I was looking for some footage of this plane on Youtube and apparently a Zero flew over Ibaraki in the 90’s. That plane was also piloted by an American and reading the comments, it should have been a Japanese pilot. Sigh. You wouldn’t want to damage, or worse, crash this thing, so better have somebody with lots of experience with this plane behind the controls.

    O’Barry was denied entry not because of some criminal record, but solely because of his opposition to the dolphin slaughter and having given Japan a bad name with that Cove film. That’s all. And it’s sad that it has come to this. Well, childish actually.

    According to his son on CNN, this person is detained every time he arrives in Japan, so yes, he is clearly on some list of undesirable persons, but only for the wrong reasons. These nitwits here in Japan have unwittingly once more drawn international attention to the fact that they are going to harass people who are critical of certain activities conducted in this country.

    As for that passport incident, he had his passport with him in his car. The cops stopped him, purely coincidentally of course (wink, wink), made him step out of the car and then asked him for his passport, which of course was not literally on him, so they made a big deal about it. He was let go by the way, with the warning that he must have his passport on him even while in the shower, never mind common sense. And yes, he is also active in the Solomon Islands.

    I don’t condone the violence, but it is the government’s own fault. In this particular case, it was agreed upon, that this town would take a small number of refugees and the local folks were ok with it. Then all of a sudden, as has happened in most other cases, it was decided behind closed doors to take in 1,500 refugees. On a of population of 14,000. That’s 10%. The local people had no voice in it. And it’s not that this town council were being the good samaritans, they get incentives (= money) from the government.

    Unlike the brutal treatment meted out to POWs by the military, ordinary Japanese citizens weren’t that vengeful it seems, this in stark contrast to the nitwits who never experienced that war and one might run into nowadays. Mentioning Mr. Zamperini, he recalled, that while imprisoned in Japan, ordinary Japanese folk living near the prison camps would try to get them food despite the threat of being punished themselves.

    Just the other day, CNN went to a scrapyard here in Japan. According to the workers, these exploding inflators have been known for years. While dismantling a car, they don’t take out the inflators, they leave them in the car and set them off from a safe distance, since several times the inflators would explode, sending shrapnel through the roof. Of the building, not only the car’s. I guess it was not their business to report such dangerous events.

    I don’t care how luxurious a love hotel is. If the cleaning lady doesn’t use a flame thrower, they won’t be seeing me in such a place.

    One must be real proud of one’s “job”, following unsuspecting folks around and then ratting them out for a few yen.

    Money will eventually return to consumers... Apparently not all of it. Not mentioned here is, that this “study” has set a cap as to how much will be returned. It’s 4,000 yen , which corresponds to food purchases of 200,000 yen per year.

    Mori? Like his comments on the stadium design, he’ll probably say that he didn’t like this logo from the start anyway. I think they said that everything associated with this logo, all the ad campaigns and what have you got, has exceeded 100 oku yen. That’s gone. Imagine how many bricks they could have bought with 100 oku yen to help with cementing together a new Olympic stadium. And Mr. Sano won’t get his 1 million yen fee now. Don’t think that the companies having splashed out this cash are going to be happy with Mr. Design and might seek compensation.
