Can not bar someone due to ethnicity, which this museum has admitted to i.e. "non-Japanese".

^Fishy, thanks. Those poor neighbours. Doing as much as they could and it wasn't enough, I feel for them. Like I said before, at least they tried to do something. Many wouldn't've.

^Sophie, that's just awful. But at least someone (the neighbours) did TRY to do something. And there's only so much a neighbour CAN do. The poor boy, too, you can guess he's been through a bit.

Drag his mate in the front seat in. They'd have his deets. That or tell Yamada he'll probably swing for the murders and he'll sing like a bird, turn in his accomplice.

^Kazuaki, I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you. As I said with the car manufacture example, very little heavy engineering these days is done bottom to top, inside out, in one country, by one company. It'd not viable, it's not possible. Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of modern heavy engineering, design and manufacture knows this. "Cobbled together"? Grow up.

^Ron Barnes, hurrah, someone who gets it, at long last, although the word on the street is apparently....... European.

^Unamused, you wrote no significant capacity since WWII. I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong. Those 36 were from '94 to '08- 14 years. Quite significant.

And it may have slipped your mind that, like car manufacture these day, ship design and manufacture takes place on a global setting. The current batch of AWDs are not built from the ground up here in Australia. You've probably never heard of it, but there's a build concept known as modularisation. The structures are actually made in Spain by Adventia (I think) and assembled here.

So of course Australia needs outside input, that's why Thales, BAE, Raytheon, etc etc are already here. Foreign corporations have a long history of defence contract work here. No reason the subs can't be built/assembled here. We have the infrastructure and the skilled workforce to do it.

^Unamused, "from my memory we haven't built Navy ships in any significant capacity since WWII, neither do we have the skilled expertise."

Oh, really...?

"Eight ANZAC Class frigates from May 1996 to August 2006. • Six Collins Class submarines from July 1996 to March 2003. • Fourteen Armidale Class patrol boats from June 2005 to February 2008. • Six Huon Class minehunters from May 1999 to March 2003. • Two replenishment vessels, HMAS Westralia in 1989 and HMAS Sirius in 2006. • Two Leeuwin Class hydrographic vessels in May 2000. • Two Landing Platform Amphibious ships in August and November 1994.

Of the ships listed above, 36 were constructed in Australia"

^Triring, and....? We're aware of that. And now he's the FORMER defenCe minister, and its correct to assume his comments contributed to his becoming the FORMER defence minister. He did nothing when he was in that position and is now off the frontbench.

^Yamashi, so well informed! Australia has had submarines since 1915. Wow, a racial slur about our work ethic, how original, such stereotyping and generalisations do not impress.

^The Tiger. "Need"? Not yet we don't. Plenty of others in the queue, don't count your chickens before they hatch, mate.

^Triring, the emphasis is on FORMER in your statement. Speaking as an Australia with a relative building the current AWDs in Adelaide, that minister didn't have the intestinal fortitude to say that in a room full of pipefitters and welders at the shipyard, did he? No, he said it from the safety of his desk in Canberra, the tough guy.

For the record, its not the volts that kill you, its the amperes (current) that kill you. 0.015A can be fatal. Irresponsible to have the cable in a situation where it can just fall into a watercourse/way. If a registered electrical contractor did it, they are in big trouble, and if an amateur did it, they should be in more trouble.

^Maria, doesn't sound that way to me. He moved on while still seeing his son, met someone else, had kids and still maintains a relationship with his son. More than most divorced Japanese guys do. The guy in the article is a fool and doesn't deserve to see/have access to his child anymore, and should be locked up, the weak little man.

A low-life coward for several reasons: A) he didn't stop to help after the accident; B) a packet of cigarettes was more important than the four women he ran over; and C) he is now lying to avoid a stiff sentence.

Just another weak little man.

So, he is making money out his crimes. Disgraceful. Any royalties this so-called "human" receives should be forfeited to a Victims of Crime organisation. He wouldn't be able to do this in a normal country.

^CrazyJoe, where does it say the child darted into traffic? Were you there? There's any number of explanations for this tragic incident. Insinuating its the parents fault is ridiculous at this stage. Why didn't you write "And its your responsibility as a driver not to use your keitai". Same thing. But you have to make this in to a parenting issue.

Posted in: Mother admits throwing 5-year-old son from 13th-floor apartment See in context

^Strangerland, the boy was 5yo. The difference between right and wrong should be known by the mother. Feed, wash, hug, love your son = right. Drop him from 13th floor apartment = wrong. Simple really. Any sympathy should go to Koki, his father, and friends, which he undoubtably had. Depression isn't necessarily a death sentence for the sufferer or their family.
