AKBfan - They'll probably do it in the way they do every voice, regardless of the character or situation in the movie.

Had to laugh at the, “is a fact accepted historically and by the international community” quote. Since when did things being accepted by the international community have any weight in Japan. If you agree with what they say you can pull this quote; if not you can just say that it's a Japanese domestic issue and that they don't understand/shouldn't get involved.

I tell you, this DOS 6.2 is gonna be a game changer. Nothing will be the same.
Also, better using MS Office 2003 than the Kingsoft stuff we get down here that everyone is constantly complaining about. Tried Open Office too but formatting was still jacked up when transferring files to other computers.

samwatters - "The amount left for food is 30,000 yen. Needless to say, I’ve got no room to put any savings aside". Certainly looks like she has enough for food, by her own calculations.
And yes, nursery school teachers earn a pittance here.

"The officers attempted to subdue the woman for 20 minutes when finally they got her one the ground". "One the ground". Sure that shouldn't be "on"?

James - They don't, but if Germany had war memorials paying specific homage to Goring, Hess, Speer etc, and Angela Merkel was making it a point to make a trip to that memorial every year, then I think it would definitely be a talking point in Europe.

Yeah, I guess we are too gullible thinking that an article title being about an Xbox would actually be about the new Xbox for the most part.

Has Messi and Torres ever said that Captain Tsubasa was their inspiration? I see it mentioned in Japanese blogs and on sites that Tsubasa has been the inspiration for almost every world famous footballer, but never read quotes or heard people say it.

Here's hoping that Japan is considering the DPRK abductees while talking about defence/strikes against he country. Or have abductions been put on the backburner for now as there's something else to rally around?

Narcissists equalling people who earn more money than the police spokesman asked for a quote, I'm assuming.

Wait... you're saying Okinawa's had money spent on its roads? Apart from the 58? Got to try and find them somewhere.
They should have taken the IOC members to these places to see how Japan has recovered and deserves the Olympics.
