wendy's has arguably the best burgers in the biz. great combo of ketchup, mayo and pickles on the wendy's burger. it'll be interesting to see what the new burgers will taste like.

you know, i'm all for "to each his own" but this fascination with AKB48 borders on lunasea. their lack of b'zness sense and talent is egregious. i would kill myself if my morning musume would buy their cd's. it woulbe be my dream come true if they disbanded.

Posted in: Woman arrested for abandoning newborn's body in library toilet See in context

ok, so maybe a teenage girl doens't know any better and is frightened to tell her parents, but for a 27 year old woman to carelessly dump her baby in a toilet is unforgivable. hitch a ride to kumamoto for effin sakes and spare the baby.

sometimes, i really do lack faith in humanity.

@thundercat

love the name but i gotta beg to differ with ya. can you cite any case within the past 10-20 years where a defendant was given the death penalty for killing one person for financial gain? i'll even throw in any type of homicide where there was only one person killed. i'll give you an eye of thundera of you can cite more than two.

i think being in juvie is much better than being at home with her mom and step-dad. wouldn't be surprised to learn that he had his "finger" in the cookie jar, either

Posted in: Japan says no key data lost in cyberattack; China denies responsibility See in context

what does lost data mean? that the data wasn't copied or that key data wasn't seen by the hackers?

china, puh-leeze! they are running the largest, and maybe most sophisticated, state-sponsered hacking network in the world. you gotta be good if you can break into google.

lostrune 2 b/c china doesn't have any important data to steal. they've copied it from japan and western countries.

Posted in: Woman jumps to her death at Shin-Koiwa Station; 5th suicide there since July See in context

tkoind2

who is "resisting" barriers? the point is that other posters lamented the fact that there were no barriers, like having them installed at all train platforms would prevent suicide. sorry, my "friend," but they won't. suicides are not spontaneous events. people don't suddenly get the urge to jump in front of a train. they usually have thought about it for quite some time. and it doesn't require much effort or time to hop over one.

about flying corpses, that lass unfortunately jumped in front of an express train bound for the airport, which was traveling much faster tan normal trains. so i'm not sure how often barriers would be needed to protect people from human projectiles.

docomo blows softbank away on coverage and customer service. half the staff at softbank have no clue how to help you and some of them are downright rude. the phone is barely making me stay with softbank. iphone 4 totally sucks!

sorry but blaming a lack of barriers is just re-freakin-diculous. the barriers won't prevent train jumpers. they might prevent blind and drunk people for falling onto the tracks but not people who want to commit suicide. where there's a will, there's a way, folks.

Posted in: 'X' now a gender option in Australian passports See in context

@lucabrasi

you aren't following my line of reasoning. by pandering to every minority group, we create more PC mine fields in which to walk. this is a very big change for such a small cross section of the population. and I'm not sure it really solves the problem. if immigration sees an "x" when they are looking at a "woman," what are they to assume? is this really a woman or is this a man dressed as a woman, or is this a man who has had a sex change, etc.

Posted in: 'X' now a gender option in Australian passports See in context

this is another case of PC going overboard. our need to coddle even the smallest of minorities borders on the inane. seriously, how many people does this really affect, less than .001% of the population? pu-lea-ze!

japan used to be so proud of the fact that they had the longest longevity in the world. but with the elderly population surging to record numbers, the huge drain on limited finances is surely a cause for reflection on this achievement.

supposedly they are pricing both in the low 20,000 with 7gigs of data/month for around 6,000. that's a pretty attractive price when you factor in that it's about the same size and weight as the Ipad.

No, I said we cannot say that he is.

Which means you cannot say that he isn't one. Can't you read?

i totally agree with Jamess. The teacher should be punished, and there needs to be laws that also punish these underage prostitutes.
