Apple Inadvertently Intensifies the Search for Loch Ness Monster:

"An Apple maps image of a mystery figure in the waters of the Scottish Highlands
has given Nessie enthusiasts hope that the elusive beast has been located...again."

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.

I was under the impression that all those payments were settled a long time ago.

Plus that company was a few companies during the war and combined lost most of their ships. The few remaining were basically emergency war production ships....meaning crap, as what good materials Japan could get in the early 1940s went to warships and the like.

What someone in China has done might work if it stands in court. Otherwise this is international incident territory.

Actually I don't even remember Japan having the need to pay reparations because the world didn't recognise China due to their communist alignment.

China Arrests 20 for writing slash fiction

Quote:
Recent reports of crackdowns by Chinese officials on young female fans who write slash have sent waves of alarm throughout international fandom waters.

A new investigative report from Anhui TV claims that Chinese authorities have arrested at least 20 people for the crime of writing male/male fanfic—mostly polite, introverted young women in their 20s.

The increased attention to slash is part of a recently announced Internet "cleanup" by China's National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications. It's apparently been tasked with deleting any kind of pornographic online content.

The whitewashing reportedly includes all text, pictures, videos, and advertisements
While I am not a fan of it, this certainly isn't the right thing to be doing.

While I agree that these rotten girls needs to be locked up, isn't that supposed to be the job of social counsellors and asylum workers.

And this ;

After all, even if the Chinese government could confiscate the laptop of every fangirl in the land, they'll have a far harder time eliminating the real source of slash fandom on the Internet: The simmering sexual tension between the characters we all love.
The journalist should be jailed and counselled for writing something like that. Show some social responsibility to the innocent young girls out there!

That was settled in the 1970s:

Joint Communiqué of the Government of Japan and the Government of the People's Republic of China
~(September 29, 1972)

http://www.mofa.go.jp/region/asia-pa...a/joint72.html

Quote:
5. The Government of the People's Republic of China declares that in the interest of the friendship between the Chinese and the Japanese peoples, it renounces its demand for war reparation from Japan.

The Shanghai court's argument is that the chinese company lost the two ships before the official beginning of the war in 1937, therefore it's not covered by the Joint Communiqué, according to them... Even so, it certainly seems odd that the court would order the seizure of a ship directly. (aside from the fact that such dispute would be more appropriate to be decided in the international court instead..)

Also over 77 years ago if it was before 1937.

Bring it up to the ICJ and see China walk out in a huff.

I admit it, I had to look up what "slash fiction" was.

There's a newer article where they link to a gif using Google's satellites of the same area, showing it's actually a boat and its wake. Basically, Apple was too weak to get a good image, but Google got the image.

Oh. Well, it didn't look very plesiosaur-like anyway.

A NEW Zealand man has changed his name to the longest legally allowed, after apparently losing a bet five years ago.

The 22-year-old man from Normanby is now legally known as 'Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova' - just one character shy of Department of Internal Affairs' (DIA) 100 character limit.
Wonder what his friends have to call him now.
