    I stay in capsules all the time and love 'em.

    I just need a small place to sleep and they usually have nice baths (some pretty big) and the prices are unbeatable.

    Clean and usually close to the action.

    I remember telling my Japanese aunt about Odaiba being the new go-to-place back in '96 and she thought I was crazy and mistaken because she knew it as a toxic waste dump.

    The whole area (including Toyosu) has a long history of chemical and industrial waste. When I was a kid the whole bay was absolutely filthy.

    You can't just build on these sites without a thorough cleansing.

    When asked if I'm "half" I just reply "I'm both." Which is exactly what I am.

    Well looks like a straight ticket to hell for one or two former parents.

    Trump really needs to keep his finger off the Tweet button.

    He's a perfect case of saying too much in the heat of the moment.

    It's like clicking "send" for an email and then yelling out "Doh!" after realizing it was a mistake and you shouldn't have sent it.

    But Trump doesn't seem to have that "Doh!" consciousness or awareness.

    Geoff GillespieMAR. 16, 2017 - 07:29PM JST I have no real love for Abe but I likewise have no appetite for the kind of revolving door leadership Japan saw prior to his current time in office. ......This could be a classic case of '...be careful what you wish for.' Would hate to be the one to have to say told you so...

    I didn't like the "revolving prime ministers period" either but it doesn't make having one awful permanent long lasting prime minister any better. Remember, Abe was one of those crummy "revolving prime ministers".

    Abe hasn't kept any of his "arrow" promises or improved the plight of most of the people in this country.

    The military and large exporters have a lot to be grateful for. The rest of the people - nothing. I'd love to have a steady leader that's good for the people and country but I really don't think Abe fits that description.

    Also there is the reverse gateway effect. If you have pot you can smoke and enjoy, then the desire to find and do other drugs never develops. Pot's a pleasant high that even cuts down on drinking.

    People are use stimulants because they're worked to death over here.

    Why does every bogus comment made about pot or drugs sound like the ones made in the US 50+ years ago?

    And so he should be expelled. Perhaps the Embassy itself should also go.

    I like using Spotify. I think it's pretty good.

    It'd be nice if they could increase their Japanese music collection especially from 60s and 70s.

    The Imperial Palace compound is huge. Just allow them to live in one of the houses in the back or sides.

    Or let them live wherever they want.

    The emperor definitely deserves it having lived under the oppressive kunaicho all his life.

    If your area was threatened with or inundated with radiation due to incompetence and were forced out to leave friends, family, businesses, ties to your hometown and land you'd be pissed and would demand more than just a few years of temporary housing.

    Also, where these domestic refugees can go back to is nothing like the way they were before 3/11.

    Some 600 to 800 Japanese soldiers remained in Vietnam and trained Ho Chi Minh’s Viet Minh to fight the French forces after Japan surrendered to the allies in 1945.

    This is really interesting. I had no idea.

    Why have a double set of envelopes?

    Why not just leave the official envelopes in a stack behind the podium and the presenters can just take the top one and announce the winners.

    There wouldn't be any of these embarrassing mix-ups.

    So China is slowly starting to get on board. A bit late and definitely not enough in my opinion.

    China is the only country propping this rogue nation up. They're the key.

    If China is threatened with an economic squeeze from the US, S. Korea and Japan, they'll finally move their butts.

    The five-year old may have been seat-belted in but was sitting in the unlucky spot. It doesn't say in the article.

    I don't exactly know what happened in this accident but I see kids unstrapped every weekday.

    8 out of 10 cars driving their kids to the nursery school has kids unstrapped, standing and leaning on the front dash, standing on the back and front seats, bent over the top of the seat, or sitting unstrapped while the parent is strapped in. One sitting on the dash on Friday.
