I hope the rules change and the imperial family can choose their lives like regular people. The IHA is scared to death if this law passes. Gambatte Akihito sama.

Another marketing idea obviously conceived during a drunken evening. The fact that anyone would want to skate on ice above dead frozen fish sounds like the park needs a new round of managers more in tune with reality.

Premium economy sounds stupid. I absolutely hate the long list of classes they call out when boarding. First class, business elite, business regular, business economy, middle class, upper class, low class and no class

How about all countries adopt the facial recognition system and start by preventing terrorists from boarding rather than stopping them at their destination.

Premixed liquid formula verses powdered milk to be dissolved in warm water is a no brainer. In a major natural disaster like an earthquake or tsunami that destroys the clean water supply, premixed liquid formula makes a lot of sense.

I avoid doing business with Chinese from China like the plague. Why, because their word and handshake mean nothing. Charge their credit cards 100% and if they cancel they get nothing back. If they dont like it, they can buy trip cancellation insurance on their end.

Oops it looks like the Supreme Being was asleep at the wheel when it planted a woman's consciousness into a man's body. I'm going to raise a glass of yakult at breakfast and make a toast or maybe burn some toast. In any case that man's life must be very complicated and difficult

Japanese women in the workplace can be very difficult these days. Having worked for a Japanese company in Japan and also in the USA I can attest that Japanese female co workers have an axe to grind even if you are innocent because a lot of pent up anger over how women have been treated for over a thousand of years. My recommendation is to ignore them, don't ask them to lunch and make zero physical or eye contact.

Disney should have some drag net system of eliminating these large amphibians from invading areas that naïve customers spend time. I lived in Florida for several years and you do not, I repeat do not go into any body of water that is fresh or brackish not even to water ski. There are also non native species like crocodiles, snakes and even piranha living in the waters of Florida. Florida should have a round up season and whoever turns in the biggest catches gets a whole lot of $$ and that will get rid of these dangerous animals. Alligators are native but companies like Disney can protect their customers from these predators.

Another example of Muslim hatred for the west. Send them back to their sandbox countries without the ability to legally renter any western country and if found reentering the west, lock them up ad throw away the key. If they hate the west so much then stay home and practice their religion there.

Lived here, been here, seen all the the messed up stuff here and this is just the tip of an iceberg. Japanese people have some serious wack job issues. We have a not so close japanese friend married to an American man and their home has stuff piled up on every flat surface anywhere in their entire home. I have never seen anything like this in my life. Husband is a porn addict too. Children are screwed up in the head. Total wack job family.
