  1. It looks like the logo for an escort service. Fitting for Paris, then.
  2. With Miyazaki's recent retirement, he will definitely have the time to plan and stage a wonderful opening ceremony. I do hope it's something the committee seriously consider.
  3. This still applies to you: "It's either you base your knowledge of a country on its most sensational aspects or choose to focus on its most repulsive qualities while you are there. I always expect more open-mindedness from Westerners, but alas so many of them already have ready-made opinions whenever they come here to Asia" Being to a country doesn't make you an expert. And being on a high horse is definitely better wherever you are *Better than wherever you are
  4. I agree. I've been following the threads here on gamesbids for months and I noticed that poster, and that's why I'm not so keen to post here as much as I want to. Things here get pretty ugly, and in general I'd rather avoid those kind of people. I'm glad the Turkish posters have been very civil here.
  5. For someone who calls Tokyo his childhood home, I do think that the picture you posted is highly offensive, distasteful, and crosses the line. A pic of Fukushima to make fun of the bid is fine, but the h-bomb actually killed thousands of people. It's the same as posting nazi pics to make fun of the Munich bid or crop sharers to make fun of the Chicago bid. Being overly politically correct is unpleasant, but there's a time when joking stops being in good humor.
  6. I could say the same for you and several members here. Have you ever been to Japan? It's either you base your knowledge of a country on its most sensational aspects or choose to focus on its most repulsive qualities while you are there. I always expect more open-mindedness from Westerners, but alas so many of them already have ready-made opinions whenever they come here to Asia. A very very small contingent of the Tokyo population concentrated in a very specific area of the city dresses that way, and even today that kind of subculture is slowly disappearing on account of it being no longer in fashion. So unfortunately any perspective you have on Tokyo is seriously skewed by these images that the Western media constantly bombard you with.
