If the CEO gets AKB48 voting rights I can imagine companies changing investment strategies.

I'm embarrassed for the attacker. Japangal-Hey teacher, leave those kids alone.

Some tattoos are beautiful, some are hideous. Some people have big noses, some are just right. It's hard to stop discrimination once you let it grow roots.

I fully support the practice. It's better than risking our soldiers. That said, I should probably shave to limit the risk of mistaken identity.

Posted in: Hosono fails to convince Kansai leaders on restart of Oi reactors See in context

I believe nuclear power can be managed safely, but I disagree with having it managed by corporations. Tepco should have started pumping sea water immediately, but they didn't want to ruin the valuable equipment. Since this isn't my country, I'm fine with whatever decisions the populace makes. If I get too inconvenienced or don't feel safe I have the option of leaving, like most of the other posters I presume.

Posted in: Swedish translator of Japanese manga appeals child porn fine See in context

The 30 yr old women dress up in school girl outfits, so making the case that the drawings were children is tough. That said, I've seen manga on the trains that makes me blush.

Good luck finding funding for the development once the base shuts down and the economy crumbles.

The only respectable way to get a fresh head on your beer is to finish and refill. Peacewarrior, your comment is true for about half the population. The other half would likely disagree strongly.

OMGhontini-my apologies, I was referring to traveller's comment that you agreed with, although all evidence has been removed by the jt-police.

Disillusioned: biking or walking? Is this the main source of your disillusionment? No disrespect intended, and I hope you don't have any permanent damage. My hand still hurts from a car mirror 20 years ago in DC (not in a crosswalk... so mea culpa).

Serendipitous, I completely agree. It would be much more profitable than waiting at the lights for someone to cross the yellow lines and might save a few people's lives. There are plenty of crosswalks in Japan where I can't see adults coming because of the bushes/buildings/fences/trucks.

OMGhontini, to quote Cat Stevens, where do the children play? Blaming the parents is despicable in my book. Suggesting they put the child in harm's way for monetary gain comes from a different type of mind. Maybe they can use this case in a psychological test to weed out unfit drivers.

I'm tired of sad news. I'm going back to my comic books.

The new Bond: In therapy for habitual steroid use and addicted to gay Internet porn. Never recovered from his infatuation over his boarding school mate. Uses his license to kill on anyone who reminds him of the chap.

Posted in: Personal info of over 1 mil smartphone users leaked See in context

Online activities should be treated with no expectation of privacy, the OS doesn't matter much. If you need to shop online or use iTunes, use a prepaid credit card or set up a small bank account without overdraft. Lastly, no foreign prince is going to make you rich to help him get his money out of his country, so ignore the email.

I can't take another 28C in the office summer. I'm sure the heat was on in my office on cooler days last year.

Let's give whatever talent is left a good reason to leave and make it harder for the government to ever see any of it's "investment".

It doesn't sound easy to make a grenade, but you can make a modified pipe bomb with 7-11 fireworks.

No health problems, yet. Bi-weekly HIV tests for a year if it happened to me.

Posted in: 1-year-old girl dies after being hit by car in Saitama See in context

My worst fear is having a small child run between two parked cars into the road. No matter how slow I go there is always a window where I wouldn't be able to stop in time. I always held my kids when there was traffic, but if I lived in a major city I might have become more lax.

Except for the spot where the concrete is melting we have cold shutdown conditions. If we pump the cold water fast enough no one will notice as long as the robot can break that badly placed thermometer.
