Sylvester Stallone’s character comes from the 1982 movie First Blood, that was based off a 1972 book of the same name. The last Rambo movie was released in 2008 with “Rambo”. It is heavily rumored that this movie has Rambo going to Mexico to save his daughter from a drug cartel. Stallone has posted picture hinting that the Vietnam War Veteran would be a cowboy in the newest film. Remember when the big rumor was that Rambo was going to the Middle East to fight the Taliban? We will see where the project ends up going.

SoraNews 24 has a story on Seibu General Hospital in Saitama City dealing with a problem of illegally parked cars by visitors. They are fighting the problem by posting a sign that illegal parking will be met is a 10,000 yen fine or given an injection! That is a heck of a punishment, a hefty parking fine (around $90 in American dollars) or an injection of something that isn’t being stated. This sounds like a set up to a scary movie!

 

And with that word of warning to watch where you park of you could be injected with something, we end this week’s Round Up of the News on the Nacho. Remember as you go through life to keep your eyes open and keep Reading!
