What they could have done was position their "bike checking" super cops around the girls house. They could have spotted him and handled it from there. The cops had 8hours to think of something. Sad

Posted in: Australia harpoons Japan's whaling program at U.N. court See in context

Japans ludicrous defense of course is that their activities are merely "scientific research," utilizing a loophole that dates back to the 1946 establishment of the International Whaling Commission when the industry became heavily commercialized and a subsequent 1986 moratorium, both of which included the scientific exception for whaling alongside small amounts for indigenous populations and other cases.

However, a 2006 ABC investigation found that only four academic papers had been published by the Japanese that required fatal whaling practices, in contrast to an estimated 6,800 whale deaths in the previous 16 years. In other words, one academic paper per 1,700 whales killed.


i took the "harpooned" comment as "took a stab (jab) at" japans whaling program"

Tho only thing i dont like about all this is the BS "for science" crap.

26, unemployed, will strip semi-naked in order to get brand clothing. Yes, this is a real good example of how young adult women are thriving in Japan at the moment.

Careful Kringis, the truth gets you thumbs down. Not saying that all women (from any country) are like this but they chose a bad example to interview.

Posted in: Mother, child apparently starve to death in Osaka apartment See in context

Police were quoted as saying that the woman had been estranged from her husband who was abusing her since last year. The woman had not told her husband or her family where she was for fear that he would find her. I wanted to give her more nutritious food.

Some messed up things in this article.

The police KNEW she was in an abusive relationship since last year (thanks for helping out with that J-cops) She moved to another place moving to my last place set me back 250,000 yen(where did that come from) How about some regular food

Of course there are more details but, do you know that it takes "WEEKS" to starve to death. I'd respect her more if she was caught stealing food.

Man, only 6 actual comments before the "Saitama" cracks. Think about WHAT happened before WHERE it happend.

This man Should hang or get life. I dont care what stress he had, there is never a reson to abuse a child.

Japan's very safe, unless you at home with your family. Hiding bodies in closets, convincing family members to commit suicide. There are horrible family issues in Japan and NONE of it is addressed.

Posted in: American gets 3 years for sexually assaulting Irish student See in context

This is a strange case, not the Blackston part. If she was drugged ,rapped and strangled, there should be a metric ton of evidence that would make him the brutal killer. All you people are yelling "death penalty", Lucy Blackman's killer dismembered her and got Life. Dont be so hasty to hang these guys. WE don't know what happened. There has got to be more. Either way they deserve jail time.

Posted in: Android rises to top -- in malware threats: survey See in context

LOL...the very reason I don't put my hands on an Android. And also the reason why when I see someone using one I think this person is very well misinformed.

or you think their customizing, playing better games, downloading faster, multi-tasking, emailing MS-Office documents to their boss, getting "actual" directions to their destination, or using a back and menu button.

But really, alot of this crap about malware is just common sense.

Hey I love my S3,

I dont think i could use anything other that android now.

But one thing, if you have a "smart"phone learn to USE it. If another person asks me a question about what something is or where a country is while there looking through their gallery.....Boy!

I agree with many posts here on this topic. I believe the Wealth of Nation should be based on ultimate medical care quality to the people, I believe Japan is failing a big time here. Do not let them fool you that Japan is a rich country.

You wont be able to tell any(many) Japanese people that. It's almost scary how much they DON'T care. shoganai(i hate the way they overuse this word)

Posted in: First gay wedding held at Tokyo Disney Resort See in context

gay marriage has no legal standing in Japan

It was just a ceremony between two (pretty good looking) women, what's the problem?

And remember, you never know who's in those costumes, could be a gay parade goin on right now.

Srew the legal stuff and enjoy life.

Thats just what she did

Police said Haruki’s mother took him to a playground about 100 meters from their home at around 2 p.m. When Haruki started playing with some dogs, his mother returned home briefly to take out the garbage.

It's still just stupid. but this just continues to happen in Japan.

Nah, i think they should all stand trial. there's no way that 9 other adults could just be oblivious to what was happening. I dont think they'll get anything serious though.
