Posted in: Man arrested for assaulting taxi driver and fleeing scene without paying fare See in context

Rare to get prison time for assault, but not paying money (or a fare in this case) along with assault is a much more severe crime. Similar to 'armed robbery' under UK laws :-(

DUI on a large oil tanker.

Wakashio is obviously not a tanker…..it was a cape size bulker enroute to Brazil to load iron ore bound for China

Fully agree with Bob. A smallish group of people just blocking the streets and disobeying the police who were there to marshall it. A royal pain in the proverbial trying to get home. But that’s a problem that comes living nearby the Israel embassy.

As for the Japanese local ‘supporters’ that’s a load of **** too, many of my neighbours said they went with their kids to show them this crowd of angry dark skinned foreigners....

MOL paid because they have a very expensive contract with Baosteel which is worth much much more than 28 MUSD. Baosteel "allowed" the vessel to be arrested because of that contract. All allegedly of course.

Sure we'll be OK in Chiyoda :) I washed my cars today so am not particularly bothered by this at all.

StormR, there's so many empty boxes these days that they are also factored into the current pricing. A more efficient service will certinaly lower the prices. Danish anti-competition laws are also extremely tight, so a monopoly is quite unlikely.

cl400 - other manufacturers also frequently have recalls> It's not really newsworthy so not in the press, unless a major concern like losing steering, frequent accidents etc.

Banks do charge to change money but it is free to pay into an account. I put 62,000 yen of 1 yen, 5 yen and 10 yen into my account for free. So just ask them to put it into your account first, then just withdraw it from the ATM 2 minutes later...

Posted in: Customers’ behavior changing sushi culture in Japan See in context

Some restaurants (definately Kappa & Sushi-lo) have RFID tags in the plates and after making a few laps on the conveyor they get automatically ditched. If you sit near the end of the belt you can see this, a flipper comes out and knocks the plates of the belt.
