but the world's supposed to end on the 21st!
SkateFiguring took the violet pill
It will be the end of an era/time, not the world. Jesus said "I will be with you till the end of time" but was wrongly translated into "the end of the world". I understand 21st of December, 2012, Gregorian interpretation of the last day of the Mayan calendar based on solstices, to be the day of ascension, for about 1% of human population, a HUGE deal. Many people's awareness/consciousness will be raised into another realm/dimension beyond the perception of the common 5 senses. This on going evolution process has been greatly accelerated.

And no, I can't actually read Japanese. However, I'm able to kinda translate it because Chinese characters are shared with Japanese characters.
If anyone would like any other names translated, let me know, and I will try.
Is that the skating order? If so, interesting how they randomize competitors completely.

4. Oda Nobunari

Is he injured? Or is there some other reason?

I think we need to remember that a lot of this discussion still comes down to everyone posting an opinion. I think that's where folks are getting confused/angry/offended. It's ok to put "IMO" after your statements once in a while.
And, beating the same horse to death over and over just to have the last say and come out looking the victor gets old for the rest of us. Everyone's said their bit, let's move on in the discussion or to the next competition.
