Godzilla Returns? He always gets sent back to the sea. He always returns for another pasting.
Just sat and watched one of them on BS 3 Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla. (?) When Mecha gets kicked over by Godzilla and its batteries are all flat, they turn off all the lights around Tokyo and ask Tepco to fire him up. Tepco saves the day!!!

When someone really knows the nature of Allah, archaeological evidence of past civilizations does not frighten them any more.
These young people are eager to sweep out the old and bring in the new, but without knowing the greatness and the depth of a mature heart their efforts look petty, meaningless and destructive.

pablo944, I think all five of them were trying to smuggle more than 1 kg of methamphetamine out of China and were caught at Dalian Airport just before boarding. Check here.

Watching a J TV special on this today and they said the young girl had a history, that is she had previously had problems at school. Once was something she did during a dissection class and another time she mixed washing-up liquid into a classmate's lunch.
The program's psychiatrist suggested that the girl wanted to do this to someone but needed to find a classmate who would be unsuspecting and receptive to the idea of visiting her apartment. In other words it was nothing to do with the victim, and all to do with the planned crime. The police now say she told them she wanted to kill someone and dismember their body.
They were also saying that someone had been updating a blog or page with strikingly similar detailed progress on attempting to dismember a body, and the police think there is a link there too.

Only good for initial releases of radioactive Iodine 131, which makes up perhaps 3% of emissions in a nuclear meltdown.
Quote from Wiki: "Iodine tablets do not act as a generic countermeasure against radiation exposure. They are only effective as a means to reduce exposure to iodine-131. Taking them more than 90 days after an accident has no effect, since iodine-131 will have completely decayed by then. They do not protect against external X-ray, gamma or beta irradiation or the ingestion of radioactive substances other than isotopes of iodine."

No worries, the weather bureau assured us back in the spring that it would be a Reika, ie cold summer. Can't wait.
34 inside the house right now, at 12:00 midnight.
Need to remember some of those tricks from last summer, like having the fan blow across a frozen water bottle standing in a condensation catch can.

No fun for the Korean brothel owners then.
I bet there'll be hopes for a big "30-Day" party.
Until then they can get over the jet-lag and culture gap, perhaps.

I tried some McNuggets. Little gristly bits inside. Yuck, yuck, yuck. Just like sausages, wieners, frankfurters, etc, it's all made of gross ground-up leftover bits of animals. The sell-by date is surely secondary to that.

As I remember this guy was caught trying to take the drugs OUT of the country through Dalian Airport.
They get to arrest the guy, AND keep the very valuable to someone drugs in the country.

Loophole drugs, or Dappo Dorag-gu, have had their name changed recently to Kiken Dorag-gu to please the public hoping that a change of name will alert innocent buyers to the dangerous nature of them. Now users cannot say anymore "Oh, I didn't know!"
In English however, this sounds a bit OTT, as if other drugs are not dangerous. "Dangerous Drugs" is now the official designation for herbs sprinkled with essences of quasi-legal fairy dust concoctions.
So what do we call genuinely dangerous drugs now?

Well, if they gave a warning beforehand, then perhaps Israel was hoping to send a message to Hamas and the general population behind them, that nowhere is safe.
Didn't Israel do something very similar last time around? Two in a row looks like a deliberate calculation.

Recently some cars in Japan are designed to be left locked with the engine and air-conditioning running inside. I have seen children playing inside people wagons while the parents are shopping. No idea if this was the case here or not, since the article does not go that far, but even so it would have run out of fuel.
