    Thanks for updating this topic even if with a rather unwanted result...

    Local Sumo Customs

    Sorry for the nitpicking, but actually it's a shrine not a temple. Temples are Buddhistic, shrines are Shintoistic.
  10. Wow. Very Impressive! However, one question. Did you take possible inflation into consideration? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system#Ratings_inflation_and_deflation

    Furikake is the name of the seasoning and written on the package. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furikake Yes, it's a pun.

    Where does this accent come from?

    Completely off topic, but I hope to find someone who could help me out as a non native speaker. What is this accent? Aushtralia instead of Australia, arábic instead of árabic...? Where dos this guy come from? And better don't get deeper into the content...^^

    Aki 2015 "Poster" (leaflet)

    Interesting argument. But what if the designers have flipped the original picture vertically... Nevertheless, Ikioi seems to be the strongest case here.

    Sign Out not functioning

    Err.... If that is true, I'd call it a serious bug. Any such cookie information should be invalidated on the server side after logout. Maybe it's rather some default browser password saving. I'd look into the browsers preferences settings and check if there is a switch like "save passwords" activated....

    Greetings from Asashoryu

    Yeah, sure. Pigs can fly, the earth is a disc and Fay is meeting an Ex-Yokozuna in Mongolia just by accident... Keep on dreaming! :-D

    New Oshima-oyakata to wed his wife

    Somehow strange to see a Mongolian wedding. Most gaijin I guess tent do do that in Japan. What's the decoration on his chest for?

    Did he? I thought Kyokutenhou told Hakuhou that he will retire (as anybody else of the inner circle) and that Hakuhou was willing to pay him the respect that he deserves after that long career. Hakuho just gave him the chance to enjoy as much as possible of his last active day and be put into the spotlight as much as possible.

    No. Only if the jun-yusho is worth a yusho equivalent. That means it must be obtained through a kettei-sen or the like. Teru is out of the race already. So no yusho equivalent, no zuna run. This is why Kakuryu's jun-yushu was worth a promotion, but other jun-yushos mentioned by ScottyJoyJrBebe were not. If Teru wins it's only for the honour. A statement that says that from now on he's taking over.
