Posted in: Skeletonized body found in Yokohama apartment See in context

Technically she didn't abandon the body. She was living with it.

Despite the above, it makes me sick hearing stories like this constantly. My friends and family are constantly asking me if it's really that safe and amazing here in Japan, and then I have to tell them about the amount of suicide, family murders, sickos taking underwear, etc...

Posted in: Gun accidentally goes off in Hokkaido police station See in context

I feel that police here are trained to handle weapons but not trained in a great way. Why was the weapon not placed on safety in the first place? You can still remove rounds from a weapon that is placed on safety.

Posted in: Anime figure collector who can’t pay his taxes has to give up what he cares for most See in context

As a collector of American Comics and Comic book related toys I do have sympathy for this person. If I had the money I would purchase all of his items in the auction and return them to him. I kno the struggles of collecting even though I'm 27 years old. You grind to find that one item or wait long hours in line for a piece that is limited stock.

Posted in: Gov't to introduce full-body scanners at Narita, Haneda, Kansai airports See in context

I think the body scanners are a great idea.

I grew up in NY, ive lived through the War on Terror. These machines are being used to protect people at the cost of their privacy being invaded. Im ok with that

Why does this even make news here in Japan when the service isnt available here without using a VPN?

Posted in: Man arrested after child's skeletal remains found in apartment See in context

Children in Japan start Elementary school when they are six going on seven. So by this account that seven years has passed, the boy would today be 12 years old, making me wonder how it went that long without it being unnoticed.

Posted in: 86 students at Yokohama school sickened by suspected norovirus See in context

Noro is basically caused by food poisoning. If you look at every outbreak recently it is being blamed on the food. From the outbreaks here in Japan to the Cruise Ships in the Caribbean. I work in a school here in Japan and the kids receive lunches that are cool or cold. Things a normal human wants to be fully cooked and warm. Im constantly seeing cold Karage and Koroke. Noro is also spread by direct contact. If someone gets moro from the food they eat and then they go and destroy the bathroom, unless that toilet is sanitised, that is going to spread to other people.

Posted in: Yankees sign Tanaka to $155 mil seven-year deal See in context

As a New Yorker I am thrilled. Do I think n e one is worth the money he is getting no. Do i think he is better than Darvish no... but... overall he is a great player and chose the Yankees for the stardom and the chance at being in a world series. 17 of the last 19 years the Yankees have made the playoffs and made numerous world series. They have won 5 since Ive been a kid so for me Im thrilled to see him going their. Had he gone to any other team I still would have wished him the best because at the end of the day he is a human being and he is playing a game he loves. Thats what people forget. sure he wanted the money...but he still loves the game and this game has now made him a very rich man and made his family set for life. You would do the same thing in his position.

Posted in: 3-year-old boy run over, killed at family barbecue See in context

my condolences to the family...but where was the family. I feel that one of the problems in japan is that it is soooo safe that parents take it for granted. this was a complete accident and now this man faces a jail sentence. the punishment of having to live with this mistake is more than enough of a jail sentence for him. there is no reason he should be placed in police custody for a mistake that could have been prevented had the parents of a THREE year old had their eyes on them.

Posted in: Nearly 40,000 hospitalized for heatstroke so far this summer See in context

other reasons for this: 1) 90 year olds working in fields on their farms wearing long sleeve shirts and jeans, 2) no one likes to use their air con, 3) people are afraid of the sun so they wear sleeves constantly and get overheated.

its a shame but completely preventable.
