is it too late to take back obama's nobel prize for peace? it seems like winning a re-election is more important than finding real solutions to the mid-east peace talks.

a "lie of omission" would have to assume that the j-govt knew the global data on c-137. even now there isn't concrete data on c-137 as the researches noted.did the j-public even care about the global data? heck no!! they wanted and only needed info pertaining to their particular area. the people of fukushima, and most of japan, could have cared less about the amount of c-137 blowing over the ocean in the first weeks after 3.11. Which question was more important, "Mom, can I swim in the middle of the pacific ocean?" or "Mom, is it safe to go outside?"

you are so right! they should change their name to SOFTSIGNAL, and also turn off that crappy and spotty wifi. even at the hint of a weak signal, my phone will want to switch to wifi. and then when it does, the wifi doesn't work. soooo dis-satisfied with them.

PLEASE READ WHAT SQUIDBERT POSTED! and quit posting that the j-gov't was lyings. as he so eloquently put it, they released info based on the data they had. they didn't have the inclination, time nor the ability to quickly process data from all of the world.
yes, the j-govt was BSing on a lot of stuff but they actually didn't BS about this. sheez, people, give the j-bashing a rest some time and read the article carefully.

they are NOT public servants 24/7, and our taxes don't pay for their time off duty, so they can do whatever the heck they like off duty if it doesn't break the law. although police officers are held at a higher level of decency than joe six-pack, their behavior did not constitute anything illegal or morally offensive. so what if they were doing somersaults and chin-ups on a train while off duty.

it kinda annoys me when oji-chans and oba-chans attempt to enforce these hidden rules that you can't do anything on a train besides riding it in silence. in every other country i've been to where there's a subway, people are always talking on their phones, chatting to each other and actually having a bit of fun on a train. but in japan, it seems like a huge faux pas. times change people.

@giuliano yes, you're supposed to ride on the sidewalk.
when i first came to japan, i always thought we HAD to ride on the sidewalk because i saw everyone else doing it. but i hated it because it was so crowded and packed. it was almost better walking. i doubt if this law will change anything, but i'm all for it. people belong on sidewalks not bicycles.

please research before you speak
In 2008 Bardot was convicted of inciting racial/religious hatred in relation to a letter she wrote, a copy of which she sent to Nicolas Sarkozy when he was Interior Minister of France. The letter stated her objections to Muslims in France.

bardot is a racist and a fearmongerer. she's been fined numerous times for inciting racial hatred againsts muslims, who she claims is invading her beautiful france.. and yet she wants to care for all the animals of the world? puh-leaze!

why steal when you can just find a vending machine that sells "used" panties? oops, this might be off-topic.

the best part is that these idiots stayed in the apartment where the crime took place.
on another note, their parents should also be imprisoned. how could they raise such callous children? the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, me thinks.

these articles seems to suggest otherwise:
seems like zensho wanted to pursue their more profitable brand which is sukiya. smart move b/c sukiya is the #1 gyudon joint in japan now.
