    I saw the Halal food mark at a few restaurants there in Gotemba, so Christians can eat anthing, Hindus no beef, Buddhists depends

    Why a non-Muslim would want to eat an animal that has been slaughtered ritually with Islam prayers said while killing it is beyond me.

    Priority should be given to improving the quality of life rather than prolonging life.

    People who advocate eugenics and euthanasia would agree with you, too.

    @CrushThem Well said. I couldn't agree more.

    The brand was popular decades ago, and the collared shirt was popular along with another brand with a different animal emblem, Le Tigre (forgot the name, but another brand had a penguin). The original cologne (don't know about the ones now) also had a nice scent. If these clothing are priced higher than most other brands, I'm curious to know where they're made and if the quality justifies the cost.

    Love, love, love to Russians on JT is just beyond me. Keep up with that, and leave US alone.

    Who cares about the U.S.? A country that starts wars everywhere, installs puppet governments and imposes its will and corporate interests on countries around the world. It's a country in decline with a staggering national debt, growing unemployment, a dumbed down culture, and increasingly becoming a militarized, police state with FEMA camps, RFID chips, and all manners of surveillance and enslavement for its citizens. It's a waning global influence, has become the most despised nation on the planet and on the road to self-destruction.

    Sure, the U.S. will be left alone. No doubt about that.

    Yeah. You're basically telling the world how many members, the number of kids, boys, girls, etc. in your family. Just the kind of info people with criminal intent would love to know. Putting it on your vehicle is not the smartest thing to do.

    Amazing, there are many Russian lovers here on JT.

    Yes, because if you don't follow and believe the mainstream news media and their lies, then you must be a Russian lover. That's what I call pure logic.

    Maybe these people have not been really exposed to the Cold War period like us in the States. Ignorance is a bliss.

    Yes, because the world today is the same as it was back in the days of the Cold War. Communist Russia is the villain, and the U.S. is the savior of the world which can do no harm such as starting wars, installing puppet governments, sponsoring terrorism and masterminding regime changes. Oh no, the U.S. can never do those things. Never.

    Truly, ignorance is bliss.

    Here is an US Satellite image released yesterday while Putin still denies and lies. We need to get tough against these terrorists.

    This is the problem when people still watch and believe the mainstream news networks, as in that ABC website you've linked. In this age of the Internet, people should know by now these outlets are controlled by those who own them for their own agenda. There are many alternative news sites there. All you need to do is use a search engine.

    That satellite imagery Washington released was so obviously faked it isn't even funny. Why wouldn't they want to release the real satellite images? The answer lies if you consider the whole geopolitical picture.The imperialist U.S. along with the West has long been trying to contain Russia in whatever way they can. The information war and propaganda they've waging should have been apparent when, within minutes of the MH17 crash, the U.S. government and Western media immediately blamed Russia for it even before any investigators had arrived on the scene. Unless they want to be fed lies, people need to stop getting their news from the major outlets just because it's convenient and more readily available.

    Horrible news. RIP to all the victims. Having said that, at this point it's too early to say conclude anything. For all you know it could be another false flag operation masterminded by a certain country well known for it.

    If the U.S. is not spying, it's starting wars around the world, installing puppet governments or masterminding regime changes. Simply put, it's just an evil government. I feel sorry for the well-intentioned Americans who are critical of their government's wrongdoings but can't do anything about it. Quite a few have left the country and some are even renouncing their citizenship. Good on them.

    As for the spying, Germany has found an old school solution to it. Other countries should consider it as well. http://rt.com/news/173020-germany-typewriter-spying-nsa/

    I was really hoping that Guillermo del Toro instead directed this. He grew up with and is a real fan of Godzilla and classic Japanese monster movies, and you could see it in his Pacific Rim movie. He would have been more faithful and respectful to the source material.

    Congratulations to Germany! Great game and good work from both teams. Goetze's sharp-angled volley just whizzed by the goalkeeper's side like a bullet out of nowhere and decided it. It was already in OT and the players were already gassed out so good on him for digging deep. Argentina had quite a few opportunities throughout the game to score but failed to deliver. Even Messi's free kick towards the end went too high. It just wasn't meant to be. At least it's not as humiliating as the WC hosts' 7-1 defeat just a few days ago.

    Some Argentinian fans really need to learn to accept defeat.

    The U.S. supports Israel with $3 billion dollars a year, yet cities like Detroit go bankrupt since apparently Americans' tax dollars are best used elsewhere. In the meantime, land, houses, farms, etc. that belonged to Palestinians for centuries are bulldozed, confiscated and made part of Israeli territory. It's incredible how much land Israel has stolen since 1946. It doesn't seem like they're going to stop anytime soon.

    @FightingViking Yes, they are. That song is from their "The Wall" album released in 1979.

    Waters or Gilmour--there seems to be the endless argument who made Pink Floyd the band they were, or who was/is the better vocalist. Regardless, they just made great music and some really cool album cover art. Dark Side is one of my fave albums ever, and I also enjoyed Division Bell. This upcoming album from sessions 20 years ago should be like a time capsule of some bygone era. It should be interesting to hear the initial reviews on it.

    Can you say Blitzkrieg? Germany was just phenomenal and showed Brazil how it was done. This should teach overzealous Brazilian fans a lesson on how to eat humble pie. Their team just got outclassed, outworked by a far superior team. I can just imagine future generations of Brazilians being told the story of how their team got howitzered right in their own backyard. Embarrassing.

    Germany all the way. Let's see some more of that German precision in action.

    @John My thoughts exactly. For some reason it reminds me of Hitchcock's Vertigo.

    There is no such thing as unhealthy food, just unhealthy eating habits.

    What a clever way to put a spin on and deflect the question. Has she looked at the menu?

    Good point. And I'm curious to ask Ms. Casanova if she's reading this whether McD's uses GMO sourced ingredients in their offerings.

    Desiring white skin is common among many Asian women of all kinds. If they're not using skin whitening soaps or creams, they ingest pills. Some use umbrellas on a sunny day.

    The snaggleteeth doesn't cease to baffle me. Orthodontics and braces must be a hard sell in Japan.
