My Locale Kanto Plain, Japan
About Me The top of the mountain is more an afterthought than a destination for me. Its the trees and creatures, the weather and people along the way that make the walking good. It's why it's always so hard to come back down. And why, with the odor of days imprinted in synthetics, my coming back down is hard for others, too!

Re: Speaking a different language
There are very few purely "liberal" or "conservative" people. Most are somewhere in the middle, often without even knowing it. It's a lazy tendency to need to find labels an...

Re: Men's Fairy Tale
Ken, I tried, honest, but I don't get it. Are you saying that the guys don't like gay whale meat, or that they couldn't handle Miguel's awful sounding attempts at engaging Cesar in ...

Re: Men's Fairy Tale
My comment "I am not Japanese" is an obvious joke only to anyone that reads my name . Franco, yes, I got that. And know that you weren't condemning all Japanese. I just wanted to g...

Re: The Misery That Che Helped to Bring
Okay, I admit ignorance on Che Guevara. Just read up quite a lot about him, and forced myself to look at as many accounts as possible so I could get a balanced view (not necessarily influenced by A...

Re: Can BPL just delete all CHAFF? Sure, but why not just ignore it?
I just had to ask, "Woody Allen" and "Che Guevara™ are "odd, pathetic, and/or evil examples"?!? What an odd statement. Especially for Che Guevara. He is very much love...

Re: Men's Fairy Tale
What is it with that whole western (I've never heard anyone here ever say that) "put the toilet seat down" thing? I know why it is demanded, but I've often wondered why the women ...

Re: Angry Americans

These are comments I made in the forum, just added here for easy reference: I just got back from a three day walk with the One yesterday. It was great, just what I wanted. It's still very much ...
