I hope that not all the Australians are idiots like this. These people are insane. Hey, I found interesting video on YouTube. What do you think about it? There are hundreds of comments have been posted on this video and discuss is still now going on. If anti whaling protesters have any proper opinion NOT based on ethics religion or sentiment, I want to know.
Don't you guys have anything else to discuss in the congress? Annuity problems and hepatitis problems and more. It's such a waste of the time. UFO stand for "Unidentified Flying Object". Saying that I haven't identified UFO totaly doesn't make sense. And of course UFO isn't a space ship alien aboards, in the first place.
An event like this is admirable and we should do things like this more often, manbe once a month or couple of weeks. How about we doing the same, although Japan isn't yet going to participate in this event, according to this article.
These experimental events have been held serveral times around the world, although I haven't heard the news like this in Japan.
Taking into account time difference of 15hours (14hours if Chicago is in summer time), if we are to participate this experiment, the light off time will be 5 o'clock in the morning. Most of the people are not yet awake. Or should we ignore the time differences?

I just wrote a article about the convenience of YouTube and niconico. Is this article saying that watching YouTubes and niconicos will be illegal?
Deciding to buy CDs and DVDs by watcing interesting PVs and trailers on YouTube has became sort of a lifestyle to me. There sure is millions of people who do the same as me. So if this is going to be illegal, there gonna be whole lot of criminals out in the world.
Article says that there are people who worries that most of the people is going to be "potentialy criminals". I have no idea how many people use YouTubes and other uploading sites. May be 100 million or so? Are they going to arrest them all? I mean YouTube is not Japanese site in the first place. How is this new law going to deal with the foreign uploading sites? No idea neither.
Reading the article, members of the committee don't seem to understand how the internet works. I don't believe that this new regulation is going to work. Controling uploader sounds realizable, but controling downloader is something quite redicurous. It just seems that the consequence was already there and the committee was there just trying to make it sound plausible, ignoring 7500 of public comments.

I was watching figure skating program on the TV yesterday. The Grand Prix Final 2007, the one which was held at Torino (Italy).
I wasn't paying much attention to the program since I was playing with my dog at that time. Just my TV was turned on and I was rather watching it kind of absentmindedly.
Then I heard someone was performing on the music I really like. Justin Timberlake. I got glued on to program. The perfomance was really good but was just able to see the last half of the performance and couldn't figure out who was the performer. (the program went on to the next performer.)
But there is nothing to be disappointed about. These days YouTube and other movie uploading sites always has someone who've recorded the program. All you have to do is search in the site. Tadah! I don't really know about stuffs like copy rights and televising right though.
Sometimes I wonder that watching one whole TV program is wait of time. Of course there is some event that I want to see it on the spot. But most of the time you can find it afterward and watch the certain part on the internet.
