    They changed my life. Bought one for the house back home, though I haven't put in the butt dryer yet.

    Good for her! She is just attractive enough to be alluring, but not so very attractive (or skinny) to be unapproachable. She should get paid like the men do, especially for the next decade while she can play the most interesting parts for women.

    Good to see a nice Kentuckian making some bank. Plus she doesn't take herself too serious.

    @sourpuss - she has many different looks, so it is hard to recognize her. Call it range. She won an Academy Award too, so her success isn't only based on her appearance. She's got some chops.

    Perhaps I'm stupid, but if I were doing business in Japan, I would expect all negotiations and contracts to be in Japanese. If I'm doing business internationally, then I expect some negotiations concerning the language(s) to be used.

    "the panel" .... what panel? From where? What is their stake in this?

    I thought it was fun. Wonder how much Nintendo demanded for trademark infringement?

    It was for entertainment on the world stage. Not reading anything more into it than that. Great amusement.

    The dead should always be mourned. Doesn't matter who they were. They had a mother and a father who loved them (on some level).

    The history of WWII has been rehashed over and over. Can't we all get passed that? Japan and the USA don't always agree and we won't always agree, but we are both stronger with each other than without.

    Mrs Abe is welcome to visit Pearl Harbor as far as I'm concerned. Actually, in my mind, everyone is welcome to visit provided the appropriate respect for the dead is shown. I don't require respect for the USA, just for these dead.

    Many years ago, my parents drove to Canada in an RV. It had Texas plates. At the border, the Canadians emptied the RV completely searching for firearms. After all, the license plates were from Tx and everyone in Texas has multiple guns. Right?

    After over 2 hrs of searching, not finding anything, the frustrated border guards pleaded for them to just give up the guns already. It never crossed their minds that anyone from Texas might not have a gun inside their RV.

    There weren't any firearms, BTW.

    The USA relationship with Turkey has been around for many decades. We are friends and partners in a complicated world. As always happens between friends, proximity often has to take precedence for local issues over other considerations. It isn't always easy.

    This doesn't change how I feel about my friends in Turkey or alter my belief they are trying to solve their problems in the best way they know how. Just because my gvmt doesn't understand Turkey, doesn't make them a bad country or bad people. They appear to be slowly becoming more Islamic, which most of the country appears to agree about. There are a small percentage of non-Muslims living in Turkey who probably don't like these changes.

    Turkey is a member of NATO. I don't expect that to change. Should the USA extradite Gulen? I don't know. Facts matter (usually) in the USA, not allegations.

    These are the first baby steps to where humanity needs to get. The Earth is a death-trap. Our solar system is a death-trap. We need to get out of this part of the galaxy and spread out to ensure continued human life. It is a distance AND numbers thing. Spread the population as far and wide as possible for the species to survive.

    At any moment, an unseen supernova could start ejecting gamma rays in our direction sufficient to kill all life in this part of space - a GRB. All life on the closer side to that nova will die and a millisecond later, all life everywhere on Earth will die. Death-trap. Could happen today or in 20B years, but it is a certainty. http://www.space.com/5081-real-death-star-strike-earth.html

    Yes, this is exciting!

    Oh come on. And this unique to Japan? How so?

    In other places, she'd be on late-night TV pushing "As Seen On TV" products instead - probably beauty products.

    A little lemon and pepper plus either paprika or cayenne. Simple. Easy. Tasty.

    Never tried maple syrup - but it sounds delicious! The pineapple sounds good too.

    She was careless with her email system, and she deserves the criticism for it, and she deserves to be asked questions about it. By rational people.

    Careless? That is true, if it were only used for yoga classes.
    She forced other people to break US Laws and broke them herself. She's a laywer. She KNEW THIS. Based on the current evidence and her attempts to hide incriminating evidence, she needs to be put in jail for 5 yrs for treason. I would have been, if I'd leaked (even accidentally) classified information. We know the leak was from her server thanks to Russian hackers.

    Perhaps there is still some home for super-lefty Sanders. No hope for the USA if he's elected with all those wacky ideas, but at least he means well.

    HRC hasn't been found guilty of anything, yet. That needs to be decided by a judge and/or jury, but she does appear to have selective memory, difficulty following judicial instructions, and a belief that rules AND laws do not apply to her. She is arrogant.

    Can a President pardon themselves? Sadly, that appears to be what will happen.

    Sadly, I bet Mr. Trump has similar beliefs - at least when it comes to rules not applying to him and selective memory. Whether laws apply to him or not, I fear we will discover if he's elected. He will be entertaining, that's certain. Hopefully he be allowed to cause too much damage in the world or at home. He is arrogant too.

    So I'm left trying to vote based on who won't screw my family's life. No good choice available. Oh how did we get here.

    Feel really sad for people who's identities are somehow tied to which of these, cough, people, cough, is elected.

    Sander's hasn't dropped out nor has he endorsed rival Hillary.

    Sanders is even worse than Ms. Clinton. Fortunately, his campaign matters ZERO now. The world couldn't afford the taxation required to do all the things he claims he wanted to do. Way, way, way, way too far left. BTW, Ms. Clinton is only way, way, too far left.

    Don't get me wrong, Mr. Trump hasn't the temperament or skills to become President. Sadly, he does meet the simplistic requirements - over 35 yrs old and born in the USA. Pretty minimal, but at least he isn't an other lawyer professionally schooled in the loophole.

    Anyone recall the statement from Ms. Clinton's husband?

    It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is.

    Slime. Plus the puss doesn't drain too far from the husband as we have been learning since Ms. Clinton came to public light.

    California is a wonderful place to visit. Wouldn't want to live there. Half of my extended family lives in California and they have strange priorities and weird ideas compared to all of us who live all over the US and world.

    I'm torn. Someone tell me who to vote for.

    I'm a NEVER Hilary person. Also a NEVER Donald person.

    Wonder how the US got to this point of having two obscenely arrogant people running for the office.

    Seems there isn't any good choice who won't destroy the world economy with their stupidity. Think I'll end up voting for gridlock so that 1 person really can't do anything. Just hope I can guess which way to vote correctly.

    The guy planned to murder gay people. Don't think he wouldn't. He was on a mission to harm other humans. THAT is unacceptable.

    The weapon used doesn't matter. He could have used many common utensils or vehicles with similar effect. Where is the call to ban all vehicles? More people are killed by vehicles in the USA than by firearms. Ban all vehicles! That would help more people than any gun control.

    Knee jerk reactions don't help anyone.

    We've learned to ask 1 main question when it comes to study results.

    Who paid for the study? And who paid for the payers of the payers of the study?

    Without that data, it is impossible to determine whether any ulterior motives existed which swayed the outcomes. We just been deceived too many times.

    Didn't watch and didn't read the entire speech. Seemed like his speech writers did a good job. Leaders of countries have to be careful what they say, so an apology wouldn't work back home. The bombings were terrible acts, but necessary is how Americans see it. We don't expect Abe to apologize for all the Americans, Koreans, Chinese, Filipinos and others around SE Asia killed during the war either. It was a different time with different motivations.

    Since Pres. Obama cannot run for office anymore, he can do lots of things like this without much danger to his political power back home.

    After all was said and done, America and Japan are allies and friends. Sometimes friends don't always agree, but we'll talk, seek understanding and look for win-win solutions. THAT is the lesson here. We need to both move on and accept the past as the past.
