felguard, don't you have to buy a plan with one of the Japanese providers to be able to get the phone? If so, then the Chinese can't just buy and resell as you said.

Several years ago BK did have black buns. Aside from the color, it tasted the same. This I gotta try so I can say I did it, however weird it might seem to others.

Physical stature may seem to be a disadvantage but look at some of the Japanese swimmers such as Kitajima and Hagino who have done well in Olympic and World Championships. Kitajima dominated for several years and he was smaller than his rivals.

From CDC: The mosquito becomes infected with dengue virus when it bites a person who has dengue virus in their blood. The person can either have symptoms of dengue fever or DHF, or they may have no symptoms. After about one week, the mosquito can then transmit the virus while biting a healthy person. Dengue cannot be spread directly from person to person.

Several Japanese female friends who have gotten on those Women-only cars said that the women in there are pushy and bitchy as they want their own space and fight for it, that they have no manners. One friend said that she saw the women push out a guy as he was trying get in the car before the doors closed. So these friends prefer riding in the mixed cars of the train.

China has learned to pass on their food items, especially vegetables, through mislabeling practices, by having their products sent to Vietnam and Thailand where they are labeled as products of those countries, then sold to Japan. You can find them in 100-yen convenience stores for similar stores.

Worked as a certified lifeguard for several years we've had more lifeguards on duty when there were 30 swimmers in a pool. The 30-to-1 ratio is fine in a classroom situation but the pool is a completely different environment than that of a classroom. One person has only one pair of eyes and trying to cover all 30 children is unthinkable.
The responsibility lies with the school, not the teacher.
