It's funny how the Japanese is much more grave. No humor there.
Sitting under a kotatsu since 2006.
Since I used to work over [at NBC] and know Mr. Wright and know how things work somewhat, I am confident I am right when I say Bob Wright decided, or at least approved, NBC's policy to refer to whatever it is that is now going on in Iraq as a civil war.
The Pentagon doesn't think so. The White House doesn't think so. Even CBS Evening News Executive Producer Rome Hartman said he thought NBC's decision wasn't so much a news judgment as a political judgment.
I think Mr. Hartman is correct. And it raises the question: Can an American network decide when the U.S. surrenders in Iraq? Can that network decide when the U.S. leaves Iraq and under what conditions? Is NBC covering the news or creating the news?
Do whatever you can to promote social justice, stop racism and help save white people from extinction. You are not racist for wanting to be with your own people. Don't be afraid to say that white people should survive and have self-determination. We can only celebrate diversity if all racial groups endure perpetually.
Kid: "It fell in the sea!!!"
Kid: "Okonomiyaki fell in the sea!"
Kid: "Eat this"
Other kid: "Nan de?" [Why?]
Kid: "Eat this! It will make you HAPPY!"
Other kid: "Eh?"
Kid: "I am sick..."
Me: "Oh really?"
Kid: "Yes, very sick."
Me: "In your stomach or your head?"
Kid: *hesitates for a second* "SAD!"
Kid: "Not SICK...SAD!" *flops his head down on the table*
Kid: "Darrell! I'm sic...nono, SAD! I'm sad!" *Rubbing his eyes*
Me: "Oh. Why?"
Kid: *points to the same boy who didn't eat his soup yesterday* "He punched me!"
Other Kid: "Iya...chigaimasu!" [No...not true!]
Me: "Did he really punch you?"
Kid: "Yes! He punched me!" *pantomimes being punched in the face* "I don't know why he punched me! I'm sad."
Other kid: *giving the "X" symbol with crossed arms*
Me: *first kid is still punching himself in the face* "You're weird"
