    Chinese government should just get over it. Taiwan will never yield to become part of China unless a war has started and China won. It is the same as if you ask people form HK where they are from. They will never say they are from China. They will say they are from HK. Even though HK is part of China now, but those who grew up under British will never consider themselves as part of China.

    I would worry about Chinese manufactured foods more. Fake things, industrial strength chemicals, sewage.....

    Another sign that Hollywood ran out of idea.

    It is not surprising at all. Many workers in private companies in other countries get meager raise and sometimes none. Unless you are government workers that you can vote yourself with hefty raise regardless of performance. That explains why many people in those countries see government works as lazy, greedy and useless dead weight.

    What should a prankster do? Turn up someone's heat in summer and turn on the AC in winter. Shutdown down the fridge, etc.

    ^ Agreed I kind of like those old architect. So I took a lot of pictures with buildings, shrines and of course scenes. Besides. Kyoto is supposed to be like a city size museum. That's what make it interesting.

    My family was in Kyoto couple of years ago in late August when I was on my way to visit my grandma + elder sister and her family. I already noticed that there were a lot of tourist than Tokyo. We stayed at the hotel with just a few minutes walk to the Kamogawa river. It was a neat experience for my sons to sleep on tatami.

    ^ Actually, there are other lines of businesses banks consider as high risk for money laundering as well - Jewelry, real estate, cars - basically, any business customers can pay with cash in large amount. One thing for sure, you should not use your credit./debit cards with these types of stores or any store that you are not familiar with. For one, they or their employees may have organized crime as their backing and your CC or debug card information might get stolen. Even now, there is taxi stealing people's CC or Debit card information.

    Sometimes, I feel like opening up a link in the email and filling in all the insulting words to the scammer's relatives to the 3rd degree along with any pet he/she owns I could think of in there,

    It is nothing new in other countries. Falsify information to gain citizenship. There are a lot of those in Canada/US and it is not just Chinese. I know there is Vietnamese and some Europeans.

    Until it is legalized by-law. They are still illegal even the the selfie PM says he will make it legal in the future. Pot seller can keep selling (civil disobedient) and police also has the right to arrest them until the law has changed.

    they show Japanese yakuza, Chinese triads, South American drug lords, South Asian pirates, Russian assassins, they are all minorities and you don't see anyone complaining.

    I did not see Italian (Sicilian) complaint about God Farther/Scare face...... TV show is a TV show is a TV show. If someone can behave, believe or act based on a fictional TV show, you have more problem with people's IQ than anything else.

    And, if you have a "smart" (Spy) TV, plug that into a power bar, when not in use, switch it off. It also saves you money on electricity bill.

    More reasons why I will not buy a "smart" TV or even connect any of my appliance to internet for apparently no strong reason at all.

    ^^ A good actor will make a name of him/her self. A bad actor will be a 1 or few hit wonder (kind of like the main characters of Twilight series - what's their names?) Or forever stay in the B-rated movies. I have a lot less respect to politicians than actors though. Or, I should consider a politician like an actor, they lie through their teeth all the time anyway.

    Fuel cell, much better than batteries cars - you escape the oil cartel and enter the Lithium cartel. Besides, recycling lithium is not that simple and easy.
