  2. BBC reporter has just said that the capsule will just go up one more time! Tell that to the 5 or 6 rescuers that are still down there!
  3. Perhaps not as many of them as there used to be - but if I wanted to find the gnarliest ( ) half pipe on resort, where do you recommend?
  4. Quote: The 2000 yen note was first issued on July 19, 2000 to commemorate the 26th G8 summit in Okinawa and the millennium year as well. Pictured on the front of the note is Shureimon, a famous gate in Naha, Okinawa near the site of the summit.

  7. I wonder if they will advise the billions of vending machine operators to turn off their blindingly bright machines all through the night. And turn off the meaningless road lights on the roads that no-one uses at night.
  8. Without a doubt. Saying otherwise is just hyperbole. I have friends who have places they still had places in Febraury.
