This survey is pathetic, indeed. However, I would tell my daughters, "Don't let any man stop you from going after your goals and dreams. Just kick him to the curb and I'll help you do that."

Where are they going to "Hang 10?" If I were them, I would have introduced Sasuke. It's Japanese and more people outside Japan are doing it.

I think for the most part, it's very good, compared to my native country, especially if you have kids. My kids are taken cared of at a very low rate. It also works well, it you have to go to the hospital for surgeries plus stays. With the exception of breakfast, my hospital meals were great. Some of them looked and tasted almost like restaurant quality. In my native country, the food is bland, on plastic dishes. I do agree that the dental portion can be improved. It should only take one time for a teeth cleaning and no more than two times for fillings.

Actually, Hillary is not the first woman presidential nominee. The first was back in the 1870's, Victoria Woodhull.

I wish them the best, just as long as they impose a functional/productive component with their English classes. Too much emphasis on rote learning. A coworker and I once observed a class as such and we almost soffocated from boredom. I told my kids to challenge the teacher by asking questions in English. However, I do understand about keeping the "Wa." and not sticking out in class.

while we were eating he got up and excused himself to the bathroom, and then left and went home, so I was stuck with the 30,000 yen bill. (

There's no mention of the condoms in this article, except the headlines. What a moron. But hey, the TV was mentioned.

Imagine him going through passport control where the immigration officer asks, "Any arrests?" "Yes, I was arrested for hair cutting with intent." There's not cutting around this one.

"Why don't we exchange contact information."
This line is so weak. I know high school students who can do far better.
