So, the Japanese are self-regulating and orderly. The Germans also want to be orderly, but feel that they must install an orderly infrastructure to act as a framework (for efficiency?). Americans and Aussies are (sorry, I hope not to offend) pretty similar. EXCEPT that Americans may travel in single-sex groups occasionally. Some Americans also kinda-sorta try to get their ducks in a row, but don't want to be too rigid about it, since they're on vacation. The French are unruly, but some attempt to set themselves as an example, vainly hoping that the others will get a clue.

"Barkley Marathons?" What kind of wimpy name is that? If you want an exciting prison-themed athletic event, you can't beat the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon
http://www.escapefromalcatraztriathlon.com/

Swim the frigid shark-infested waters of San Francisco Bay, with deadly currents that can sweep you halfway to Japan!

If you make landfall, you then have to assault a random bicycle courier and steal his bike for the second event: a bicycle race through the deadly gauntlet of The Financial District!

Finally, running at top speed up the sisyphean hills of San Francisco!

Only the best and toughest will survive! Only the survivors can win!
(OK, I think I exaggerate a bit on some of the details)

At Crunchyroll News, there was a post about this promotion:

In commemoration of the releases, the retailers across Japan will distribute "Fujimiya Kaori no Nakeru Tissue" (Kaori's tissue paper for your tears) for free on the release day. [release of the opening song single]

I can't believe Paramount would have passed up such a great product placement opportunity. The permission to use the Klingon insignia on a NASA mission patch would have been there for the asking, I'm sure.

This marketing strategy of trapping people in a 'product ecosystem' is one of the things that I most dislike about Apple. They make high-quality and tightly-integrated products, but you're shackled to their world forever after.

When I was in the fifth grade, one of my teachers was a former police officer. During our P.E. class, he had us do a number of exercises, which he would direct by calling out their names (running in place, sit-ups, etc).
At one point, he called for "Side-straddle hops", which resulted in our general confusion. We stood in the field, not knowing what he asked for. He decided to demonstrate, and we immediately identified the exercise as "Jumping Jacks".
I guessed that the name was not used by the LAPD Academy because it sounded silly.

First, he's a guy. Those things he did would have been easier to take if he had been a young, attractive girl.
Second, he didn't sing. A nice song (especially sung by a young, attractive girl) makes all kinds of unusual behavior more tolerable.
Third. Those eyes! He has the eyes of a psychopathic killer! He could be eating a hot dog, and it would look like murder.

As I was scrolling down, I first thought Belle was holding a severed head. Imagine my relief.
Pocahontas seems to have a number of trophies on her, including the compass of John Smith. Does this mean that her war-club has the blood of John Smith?

Thank you so much for the debunktion. I was about to run out and get my "Dear Leader" hairdo*, but now I will stay with my regular style.

* Kim Jong-Un 'do . . . an Un-do?

He was going to . . . melt it down? Even though it's made of gold and such, it's also crafted beautifully. Surely anyone could tell that it is a work of intrinsic value and beauty, even if made of baser metals! To think that, were it not for Google, this artifact would have been lost to the furnace!
