    And yet, I keep seeing story after story, reading article after article, that the tourism boom is over and the money has all dried up.
    (And that perhaps casino gambling is our remedy.)

    What are these record numbers of visitors supposedly doing, just standing around while eating the lunch they brought from home?

    I agree with itsonlyrocknroll, and I'm also reminded of the movie INTERSTELLAR, where (SPOILER ALERT) Cooper asks the school principal about the waist and inseam size of his trousers, reminding the principal that if his mere trousers require two numbers to be properly measured, how can you measure a human with a single number?

    "... cheap cucumber slices." "... cheap vegetables."

    Please, please tell me where I can buy these cheap cucumbers and fruit-vegetables. I've watched them skyrocket from less than 20 yen a couple years ago to almost 100.

    "In other major urban areas—the Osaka area in western Japan and the Nagoya area in central Japan—more people moved out than those who moved in for the fourth straight year. (...) Out of Japan’s 47 prefectures, just the Tokyo metropolitan area, Aichi, Osaka and Fukuoka prefectures saw a net inflow of residents."

    That's amazing.

    KnowBetter,

    The corrosion was along the metal floor trim around the restroom and galley areas.

    The gasket seals around the emergency exits (and some windows) were deformed.

    As I say, I was on, not "working on", the plane.
    Nor anywhere did I imply that I disassembled any part of the plane for further inspection, nor that I doubted the airworthiness of the vessel.

    I'm not an aircraft mechanic but that did not make my eyewitness observations any less valid.

    What is your personal stake in this issue?

    I was on this particular plane a few weeks ago. There was a lot of visible corrosion in the interior, and most of the gasket seals were deformed. It generally looked pretty beat up, and I noted how it looked (and smelled) like an old used car.
    They attempted to show three movies during the 12-hour flight, but I gave up after Finding Dory stopped for the Nth time. The 787 is a lot nicer.

    Will they be coming out with a straw, so I can drink tomato juice? And miso soup, and beef gravy.

    Science is looking for more ways to support elephants?

    Is there really a need?

    It wouldn't matter if there was a textbook anyway.

    It would be ignored the same way that the textbook for preventing every one of these nuclear incidents, accidents, and meltdowns has been ignored.

    . . . his death in an avalanche in 1998 . . . This must be the slippery slope they keep talking about.

    Oh, Nessie. Ha-ha-ha! Too soon!

    I like this show actually. It beats the tired Downtown antics of butt spanking and sophomoric weenie jokes.

    To each his or her own, but personally, I think NOTHING beats butt spanking and sophomoric weenie jokes

    Christopher Glen, I agree with Brainiac.

    If my daughter, wife, or mother was attacked, I'd be very angry.

    This mentally ill man needs to be stopped before his assaults become more aggressive.

    Any gun used by a police force, especially a national police force, should be manufactured to a quality so that it will NEVER discharge when dropped.

    I smell a liar.

    Look for updates to this story, as the truth eventually comes out.

    Does "currently available at all Ben & Jerry’s locations in Japan" truthfully mean "only available in Tokyo"?

    "They think it would look like Japan’s succumbing to (environmentalists’) or Australian demands,” he said.

    wat?

    It's not a donut (nor a doughnut, either).

    And okonomiyaki is neither pancake nor pizza.

    --I still believe in Kappa and Santa Claus, though.

    "Haslam told AFP by email, 'It is apparent Milgram assuaged participants' concerns by making them believe in a noxious ideology--namely, that it is acceptable to do otherwise unconscionable things in the cause of science.'"

    I would refine that a step further to say that people are eager to believe that it is noble to do otherwise unconscionable things to advance whatever cause, as long as: a) they are not adverse to that cause; b) someone else takes responsibility; and c) there's something (a paycheck, half a sandwich) in it for themselves.

    Most people would say they live their entire lives enduring the "noxious ideology" of a crazed and bloodthirsty world. If it means a steady paycheck, sure. If it advances an acceptable cause? Even better.

    I completely agree with you. I got burned pretty bad with bitcoin, and I feel like an utter fool.

    From now on it's only dogecoin for me.
