smithinjapan: sure, you are right, checked with post office they dont know anything about delivery ie they can not guarantee on time delivery, but what would you do? It is even more painful just to observe situation like it is without being able to help your friends

I was just thinking… I can send some food to my friends, but how can I send them water? And they need water first… all this makes me so sad…

I am shocked… It is really strange- sometimes you look on all these famous, rich, successful people and you think they must be happiest people in the world. Apparently to be and to look like are two different things. Another thing- “ suicide” can be not really “ suicide” ...

did it twice, Helsinki - Osaka. First time flight wasn't good, but very cheap. Second time- very good flight and still for very good value. Good points- they are always on time, airport is friendly user, very good and positive experience.

Of course, when economy was good and country was in need of workers, nobody did care if they speak language, if they respect rules etc, but now when economic situation is bad, they are complaining about “ bad immigrants”. This is a good example how hypocrite politicians are.

Well, to cut long story short: imho- pay first the price, then request service. Otherwise it is ridiculous and naïve to ask for special treatment. And of course, in all western countries hamburgers are tailor made upon each customer’s demand)))

Hmm, I am thinking right now…what is so bad in asking questions like “ do you have a boy friend? why did you beak up”. Of course, it depends on situation, but a guy might ask a girl to go out just for a drink and then he wants to check if this girl would be “available”. I don’t think there are not non appropriate questions / topics, there are non appropriate situations to ask / discuss certain things

Oui, c’est la merde, sorry for my French. Strikes in France became already same as festivals in Brazil, all activities are stopping for a time being and nobody cares about anyone. Great. Not great if you live in France or you have to travel via France during these days. Very sad reality that it is not really about labour conditions but just one more opportunity to hang around with your friends/ camarades doing nothing
