    The sky is falling!!! Not quite.

    China knows it has to suck this one up, and that's why it issued the token statement. They know they're not dealing with a normal president. He's kind of like Duterte in that respect.

    Wow, the title really makes no sense. It reads as if an ancient road was found at the bottom of the sinkhole.

    "Newly paved road over sinkhole found to have sunk"

    Or

    "Sinkhole road repaved; sinks again"

    Or

    Sinkhole road resinks

    Correct me if I'm wrong, anyone, but aren't "hate crimes" still crimes, even if you take the word "hate" out of them?

    Let the police catch criminals and prosecutors prosecute them. Crime is crime. Assault is assault. I have a hard time believing that a person attacked because they are walking alone feels any better than someone attacked for being Muslim.

    Both are going to have a hard time recovering, and neither is going to feel safe for a while after.

    The view that those who judge prostitution and/or pornography negatively despite consuming it are hypocrites is, in my mind at least, pretty twisted logic.

    It's one thing to want to satiate ones own sexual appetites, this is quite natural; it's another to actively CHOOSE a job where not only do you engage in sex with just about any Tom, Dick or Harry who waves a couple of brown notes in your face, but do this knowing that you have to hide it from your child, friends and relatives. And in a country with myriad other job opportunities, like Japan, to say that they have no other choice is to be disingenuous at best.

    Would you really encourage your daughter to become a prostitute? If not, then

    Love the snobbery on this thred. Everyone here just KNOWS that Beaujolais Nouveau is SUCH crap (while rolling their eyes).

    Maybe you guys need to get over yourselves and live a little. At least the people in the picture are enjoying themselves and not wasting their time whinging on the internet... lighten up!

    @dicktatertots Apples and oranges. SS numbers can be abused by criminals and addresses etc can be used by stalkers.

    Since you're making such an extreme example, why don't we mosaic all actors faces on screen and put their voices through filters so we can't identify them at all?

    I noticed that you haven't been able to answer the point that if older women want more roles for them, they should write and produce them themselves.The sense of entitlement these actresses have here is palpable. "I deserve more roles! Write them for me!" Another reason why it's called La-la-land. Lol

    Political correctness run amok.

    If you want more roles for older women, then write them! Is it any wonder why men get all the good roles? Because men are writing them and producing them. This is not sexism. This is men expressing what they think is interesting, and what they think audiences want to see.

    There was a recent article revealing that men rated so-called "TV dramas and movies for women" lower than women rated so-called "TV dramas and movies for men." This was of immediately pronounced more evidence of sexism by the PC police, without even giving the slightest thought to the fact that maybe, just maybe, there is something lacking in the quality of programming "for women" that just doesn't appeal to men.

    Being half of the population, and with a number of multi-million dollar female stars behind the cause, you would think that this is an issue that women could take care of on their own without having to legislate what people can or cannot see.

    Open a female-focused studio!

    Both the women seem empowered.

    By selling their bodies? Seems you've missed the meaning of empowerment.

    Too bad for the kids that lose their caring attentive mother and instead get dumped with a stranger.

    And you base this assumption on...?

    A mix of time with parents and nursery workers was fine for me as it was for my kids. In fact, the kids that were in my children's nursery classes have now grown up and are all wonderful individuals. They're bright, friendly, responsible, and very good at playing with young kids. The reason I know this is because I got to know them and their parents from all of the days picking up my own kids after work, and get-togethers on weekends.

    Kids need their parents, but not to the extent that you seem to imply.

    White collar crime is still crime. What collar color is crime on behalf of the government? Blue collar? Red white and blue?

    Love driving in Tokyo. Seriously. It's always an adventure.

    @nfijapan So even without the swaztikas you think it's "very close." If it was "somewhat close" would you still think it's bad?

    Look, if it's not a nazi uniform you're just being subjective, and imposing your thought processes on others. I hate to say it but isn't that just like being the thought na... I mean the thought police?

    it is similar to a nazi uniform, but it isn't one.

    Germany enforces record expunging from the (local) internet.

    Personally, I think that if you don't want the world to remember your crimes, you shouldn't commit them in the first place.

    Between oppressors and victims, I side with the victims and potential victims. If the oppressors want forgiveness for their crimes, they should seek it from their victims, but society has a duty to bear witness and record history, not erase it.

    @kobewhitebarowner A nanny state where everyone is babied and given too much attention? Just a few posters above, @billyhelper33 stated authoritatively that the country ignores and alienates everyone,

    Gosh, you experts need to get together and settle this discrepancy, otherwise he rest of us won't know what to think...

    Looking forward to your next pronouncement.

    Doesn't the time limit in speed dating act as an obstacle to getting to know the other person? I mean, I understand the mask thingy, but how deeply can you get to know someone when you only have a couple of minutes with them?
