-> ''"It’s a question of whether we should privatize the normal water supply for the population. And there are two different opinions on the matter.

He added, "Personally, I believe it's better to give a foodstuff a value so that we're all aware it has its price, and then that one should take specific measures for the part of the population that has no access to this water."''

->It’s nice to know that I can live in a country where everyone agrees that net neutrality is a good idea and yet the FCC will probably undo it all anyway because the phone companies need to fuck you over jussssst a little bit more.

->[[TarotMotifs Flip the Tower]] - The Eight-Branch Dragon - The [[MeaningfulName Orochi Group]].
->[[VillainWithGoodPublicity THE UPRIGHT POSITION]]: The largest, most powerful corporation on the planet, the Orochi Group influences every aspect of modern science and innovation - striding forward as a lead player in economical, technological and political fields worldwide, since 1949. Established in Tokyo as an international investment group shortly after World War II, the young corporation attracted the brightest minds. The soil proved fertile, the growth exponential. A few years after conception, Orochi's eight subdivisions took to the global market. Today the enormous conglomerate hosts award ceremonies, [[PetTheDog donates billions to charities, and encourages youth programs]].

[[NGOSuperpower The corporation casts a shadow, and that shadow answers to no outside agency]]. Rumours of [[FantasticScience occult research]], [[SchizoTech technology twenty years ahead of its time]], elevators that [[HeKnowsTooMuch nosy employees]] enter [[KilledOffscreen but never exit]] - only the board of directors know for sure. The eight heads hold secrets...
