^That is neither a news nor is it accurate.

Like the blogger comments, majority of western Sci-fi and fantasy translated novels have much more conservative artwork.

Make sure to include the signage "No males or fujoshis or innocent librarians allowed".

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Banning fujoshi from a butler cafe seems to a rather poor business choice to me.

Precisely. The cafe itself is a breeding ground for ideaologies that will destroy the human race. To protect innocent young girls from being corrupted by netherworldly powers, such establishments must not stand!

Besides, I doubt such cafes would be successful since most girls are smart enough ro reject the impure notions of BL fandom.

Stop destroying the society for your own personal gain!

Either those Mexican drug cartels have established themselves in California, or the Black Dahlia's killer is still on the loose (and presumably bored).

Would YOU pay to visit Hitler's hideout? Yes, I of course understand the "never let this happen again" educational value of preserving Auschwitz and other Nazi-related sites, but I'm not completely convinced of the value of restoring and charging admission to Hitler's bunker, or promoting it as a must-see attraction. For one thing, obviously the Germans are concerned with paying too much tribute to Hitler-related sites, lest they attract neo-Nazis. Maybe just a few informational plaques would suffice.

And yes, I know Poland has a particularly tragic history, but one wonders if their tourism board could find some more positive attractions to promote. It does have a lot more to offer than Auschwitz and Nazi relics (please, PLEASE don't take that sentence the wrong way).
