I dont think Moore has any prior exposure to anime . So this whole experience sure must have been overwhelming for him . Plus the culture shock .

Before jumping the gun , you should watch some of Moore Documentaries . He is far from your typical Joe take my word for it .

Though very satirical and over-dramatic in his deposition . The problem with Moore lies in bending the truth to suite his cause.

And all the causes he has championed, for are just anti-gun/invasion/Bush/corporates/insurance

That looks very silly coming from a head of state . With that Hatoyama elected himself to the Esteemed league of Bush Sarkozy and Berlusconi

Am I the only one amused by the hypocrisy of someone as obese as Moore decrying people fooling themselves by consuming to much?

That was not one of Moore's stellar moments in film making... he basically came off as "Yet Another Gaijin Gawking at Those Wacky Japanese" ..... :P

Moore *can* communicate well and in a funny/morbid way... this ain't that.

This is probably one of those times he had little ideas.......he could have done a docu-commentary on the Copenhagen instead.

Lol, the Youtube links for the Michael Moore videos had commenting disabled.
Well, it's a good choice, seeing as to how much of bad tourist he was back there.

China shopping centre builds 'car park for women'

Official Wang Zheng told AFP news agency the car park was meant to cater to women's "strong sense of colour and different sense of distance". The parking bays are one metre (3ft) wider than normal spaces, he said.

The Wanxiang-Tiancheng shopping centre had also "installed signs and security monitoring equipment that corresponded more to women's needs", he said. The Global Times website says female parking attendants have been trained to help guide women drivers into their parking spaces. The bays also have extra lighting.

One metre wider due to their "different" sense of distance, eh? Not that I'm bashing women's driving though... just like their use of words for what they're probably really implying.

Was this even made by Michael Moore? Looks more like it was some Japanese variety show which produced this.

Also, I don't see what the big deal is. Am I upset that Moore is making fun of maid cafes where 17 year olds greet guests as "master"? No, not really.

Chinese women would truly have to suck at bay parking for them to go to this extremes.
It doesn't help them try to improve their skills, but rather cater to their inadequancies too, which I can't help but find insulting.
(Unless the cost of this carpark helps to reduce costs of damage from past events)

As in to park in the normal width given for bay parking is too narrow, they'd hit or scratch the cars at either end when reversing -.-

Women worse at parking than men, study shows
Quote:
Bochum, Germany (Dec 20): Female drivers take an average of 20 seconds longer to park their cars but are still less likely to end up in the middle of the bay, the research suggests.

As part of the test 65 people were asked to park an Audi A6 family saloon in a standard-sized parking space. Their manoeuvres — including head-on, reverse and parallel parking — were timed and rated for accuracy, which was judged by how far they kept the vehicle from the edges of the bay.

While the researchers expected the women volunteers to be slower, they were surprised to find that the cautious approach did not lead to a tidier final result.

Dr Claudia Wolf from Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany, who led the study, said that the research confirmed previous findings that men have better coordination and spatial awareness than women, and take more risks behind the wheel.

But she qualified: "I don't think that feminism or women's causes are in any way set back by these findings. They only prove what previous studies about the spatial differences between men and women have shown."

That's OLD NEWS...

In Singapore, they had it earlier... and the Swedes seem to have invented the idea with "family parking lots" which are like huge.

Blizzard Helps Cops Track Down WoW Fan, Suspected Drug Dealer
Quote:
Wanted on drug dealing charges, Alfred Hightower skipped the country after a warrant was issued for his arrest. But he didn't stop playing World of Warcraft and that's how police caught him.

The Howard County Sheriff's Department in Indiana discovered that Hightower, was a big fan of some "warlock and witches game", eventually piecing together that it was World of Warcraft.

The investigating deputy contacted Blizzard to see if they would help track him down, the Kokomo Perspective reports.

"They don't have to respond to us, and I was under the assumption that they wouldn't," Roberson told the Perspective. "It had been three or four months since I had sent the subpoena. I just put it in the back of my mind and went on to do other things. Then I finally got a response from them. They sent me a package of information. They were very cooperative. It was nice that they were that willing to provide information."

Blizzard provided the sheriff the suspect's IP address, account information and history, his billing address, and his online screen name and preferred server. Deputies then used the information to pinpoint Hightower's location in Canada.

Hightower, who was wanted on charges of dealing in a schedule III controlled substance and dealing in a schedule IV controlled substance, and two charges of dealing in marijuana, was picked up by Canadian authorities and will be returned to Howard County on Jan. 5.

While it's good to see Blizzard helping out law enforcement, it is a touch Big Brothery to hear just how much information they track and keep and are so willing to give away... even when not legally required to do so.

Long arm of law reaches into World of Warcraft [Kokomo Perspective, thanks Tim]

Tough luck fella. Bwahaha~
