“He said in his anger he waved the chopstick in front of his father but before he knew it, it got stuck in him,” the officer said.

Wow, what a tragedy. Tempers were pretty raw for that to happen.

People need to learn to take themselves out of a heated situation, instead of trying to 'fix' what's bothering them.

Don't like your parents arguing? Go ahead and storm out of the house. Come back in an hour and your father most likely would still be alive.

You can't make this stuff up.

It's not good to live with the parents after you pass your mid 20's, especially if it's a small household. The relationship just deteriorates with each passing year.

Poor ole guy. RIP. I watched a programme about 会人 in Japan and I can confess I could see pure evil in some of them. They seem to have anger on edge.

Death by chopstick..... how do you not try to stop the blood? I can't see how you could die unless you just stood there and did nothing.

Was it a single stab or multiple? Makes a big difference between an accidental artery puncture and a vicious 20 stab spree with a mostly blunt object to the neck

Rage is the new anger. Or haven't you been following the last twenty years?

You see!? Mayoi-bashi (迷い箸) and sashi-bashi (さし箸) are not only impolite, they can be deadly!

I think that depends a lot on the situation... My son is not living with me, I'm living with him in HIS house because I don't have anywhere else to go...

I can't stand it...

I stay away from my father because of his temper. Some people should never live together under the same roof.
