I don't know why Hotzenplotz and Commanteer got thumbs down, one thing the majority of these mass killers around the world have in common is not background, nationality, religion, social status, education, etc., it is that they are on prescribed medication.

@ TAMAGAWABOAT, I think you may find there is a gaping hole in your argument:

I want to ask you, "Which day of the week did America's B29 drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima?" The answer is Monday. August 6 1945 was day" We should focus attention on the day and time when America dropped the atomic bomb. 8:15 am. and Monday morning… Why did the Enola Gay carry out the world’s first atomic bombing at 8:15 a.m.? Why did the Enola Gay drop the atomic bomb on Monday morning? American Army knew Japanese schools held morning meetings on Monday morning. 8:15 on Monday was the time that schools started morning meetings. American Army knew school children would round up in schoolyards for morning meetings at 8:15 am. Therefore, American Army set the time of dropping the world’s first atomic bomb at 8:15 am, on Monday, August 6th. For what? To kill Japanese school children efficiently and to crush all hope in Japan’s future

August 6th is slap bang in the middle of summer vacation.

@Seadog538, Enough to justify a hatchet attack? Justify attempted murder of two office ladies?

That was highly entertaining! A good laugh. I loved the criminals' costumes and the cheesy American voiceover! Well done cops!

Posted in: 7 things Japanese people in int'l marriages wish they’d known before tying the knot See in context

@Thunderbird Yep, that's right, I made no mention of the non-Japanese spouses' nationalities or ethnic backgrounds, the article was about Japanese marrying non- Japanese, not solely Japanese marrying Westerners.

@ Aly RustomMar.

many women (fewer men) will openly declare that they quite like the idea of a “kokusai kekkon” (international marriage).*

Funny. Considering that the vast majority of mixed marriages are between J-men and foreign women

Absolutely right, of all marriages of Japanese to non- Japanese, 80% are Japanese men to non- Japanese women, a point very often overlooked.

>bjohnson23Feb. 26, 2016 - 08:11PM JST This is a domestic issue and the teacher had no right to interfere with parental rights.

Parental rights? You've got to be kidding, no- one has the right to do this to a child, not the parents or anyone. This is a heinous crime and the perpertrators should be punished accordingly. The teacher had every right, in fact a duty, to report this. I can only hope that you, with an attitude like that, don't have, or never will have children.

Ridiculously lenient, I agree. Absurd. And it only goes to get other violent bosses thinking they can get away with atrocious crimes and beating their employees. What an evil woman.

@Disillusioned, Fizzbit put 'humans', supposedly because there are no known cases of animals doing this to their young, it seems to me humans are far crueller than any animal.

First they take the milk ... Margaret Thatcher started her nationwide cuts that way in the UK back in the 70's when Education Minister, 'Thatcher, Thatcher, the milk snatcher'. This is just the start of further cuts, regardless of whether you like/ dislike, agree/ disagree with human milk consumption.
