Lets face it the choices in the poll don't fully open up the complexity of the solution. Yes, No, Not decided/Neutral. We are doing our best to explore complexity of the matter. And nobody important is particuarly interested in our opinions (especially mine as I've only visited there for about 6 da...

:scratch: Some of the things people say are very high and mighty and so impratical. It reminds me of protestors sometimes. STOP THE WAR! DO THIS! DO THAT! No plan, just a slogan. Saying SEND EVERYONE HOME! is a thought, but 100% totally impractical. It's also VERY mean spirited. There's no thought ...

Whether it's yes or no.. It's the legal AMERICAN PUBLIC that will in the end be paying the price to deal with the issue.... Whether it is a referendum or an election it is a democratic choice of sorts. I'm detached from the situation so I don't have any anxieties, prejudices or first hand experienc...

I also agree on someone else's post about the cost of sending these people back. Because they are not US citizens, they don't have to be processed by the court system. Simply, all you need to do is throw them on a bus or ship and send them back. Of course I was forgetting, Non-us have no human righ...

As for you bank robbery theory, it's to me completely out of context. The reason why the bank robbery analogy fits is because the following is the same in both situations: 1. The person committing the crime KNEW that what he was doing is illegal. You cannot convince me that the aliens had NO idea t...

From my wealth of experience you have to show that you are not only interested in "one thing." Which is difficult for men as generally we are interested in "one thing" alone before the relationship is established. Don't blame us, ladies, we are compelled by nature. Girls like someone who makes them ...

It is about money or more precisely the interaction between two economies and the problem that causes. I must admit to not knowing too much detail about the USA's problem or its plans but as I see it this is the issue. Lots of illegal immigrants living in the US: Essentially they are economic migran...

A few points: It is unlikely that anyone will identify with a band that solely sings in a language they don't understand. They might like the tune - as in an instrumental hit - so a Japanese one hit wonder is more likely than a career j-band or j-idol. "Pop" is marketing and very little to do with m...

Asia: as the Romans thought a couple of thousand years ago, a landmass over there which is not Europe or Africa. But according to the BBC (radio) Asia just means India and Pakistan. 60% of the worlds population and (probably, thanks to China, slightly more than) 60% of the worlds men. Maybe its time...

Apparently you can buy the little figure now. Considering that all anime characters are made up for one show or another, this one isn't really any different, but it's better to think of it more as the mascot. The only possible reason I could think that it would need carrots up it's arse would be so...

Looks like akiba-kei can be hooked really easily with the right bait. As a social experiment I would be interesting to see if other "normal" passers by would react differently in the same situation. For example a woman..? I didn't understand the conversation between the woman and her assailant so I ...

I have questions on the anime doll that Densha Otoko keeps fiddling with. Is it a real anime character? And why does she appear to have carrots coming out of her arse?
