Its in some male hormones to be unable emotionally to deal and accept rejection in love, especially after things get intimate and lovey dovey. The curse of the flesh ...and male DNA. Might go back to Neanderthal days. Rip

Posted in: TV presenter Mao Kobayashi battling breast cancer See in context

There is a movement now worldwide among people who have developed cancer in their breasts, lungs, stomach, brain, pancreas, liver,throat etc to stop using the term "battling cancer". That term is outmoded and insulting to cancer patients. We don't say someone is battling diabetes, or battling other diseases. Only cancer news stories use the battling term. Its wrong. Ask any cancer patient. They have a disease. They are not in a war. My sister had breast cancer twenty years ago. She got treated and the cancer went into remission. She never battled cancer. She had cancer. She recovered from her time as a cancer patient. We should show more respect Mrs. K By not using battling term in headline or article.

Posted in: Father says son forgives him after being left in Hokkaido forest See in context

@stranger land, nobody here neither cracaphat above or me are calling for shaming the mom. We are just curious who she is, her day job, age, and most important what role did she okay in this "reverse kidnapping." More of a "kidstrapping." the mom might have some enlightening and instructive things to say. No? No shaming is bring called for. Ask cravaphat what hE meant.

@cracaphat is right. Where is the mother in all this? News does not name her, give her age, profession, photo or any quotes from her. Isn't Japanese media interested in her pov too?

Happi endo! I believe this boy will grow up to become a very successful and famous adult. He's got spunk. He used two mattresses one above him one under him for warmth at night and found a sdf water tap with running water for drinking. This kid is a hero. Celebrate the staying power of a seven year old boy!

I watched it all unfold live on nhk TV. The helicopters, the osprey. Then the long kimo ride to the park. Then the two speeches. Then the embrace of the two elderly survivors. Then abe and Obama viewing the ruins. Peace park earned its name on Friday. Now abe must visit pearl harbor.

Pity on the poor chap. He didn't harm anyone, and his arrest on raincoat fetish charges has added some nice mirthful humour to the world's thousands of news websites. Sunny days ahead.

Torasan in the movies often said "abayo." Is that Osaka regional substitute for sayonara.? Is abayo used today in daily speech. I loved the way torasan said it.
