I don't like Culture Club much, but BG is a good singer/songwriter and they did some great songs. Time was particularly good.

Posted in: London police officer in court as woman's murder sparks protests See in context

The police could have prevented the murder if they had arrested Couzens after he was reported for indecent exposure a couple of days before the murder. Obviously, they did nothing because it was one of their own.

Why not just split the ashes 3 ways and share them if they're that important

"refusal of service at a business" - This is very humiliating. I've experienced this on numerous occasions whilst living in Japan.

Posted in: Man arrested over sexual assault of woman in alley See in context

So, he rapes an unknown woman because he had an argument with a woman at work. Why do J-criminals give such ridiculous excuses for their crimes.

If they said something 10 years ago, when it's alleged to have happened, I might have believed them. Either way, Manson rocks

"These are foreign gangs committing these crimes. An important point the article negates to mention."

Yeah, only foreigners steal cars. The Japanese would never steal cars. If it weren't for foreigners, Japan wouldn't need prisons.

Posted in: ¥15 mil stolen from elderly woman’s home See in context

Best to spread the money out over a few bank accounts if you don't trust banks. Or invest the money in something like land. Keeping even relatively small amounts of cash at home is a bad idea

I know many Filipinas and most of them only do hostessing part time to supplement the income from their day job. They are very hard working.
